Washington 44 -
In the Non-Partlsan ticket for
were lsu votes cast, tnree nersons
Lackawanna county, received near
ly half of the total number of votes.
Attorney Comegys ran ahead of the
ticket in Wayno county at a ratio of
four to one.
Owing to the largo number of can
didates for township offices, the vote
from some of the districts was long
counting. This was especially so in
Hawley borough whore the election
officers were held up until late count
ing the vote. On the Washington
ticket thero was one man named for
towo councilman and at the electino
fifteen or twenty names had been
written on tho ballots and confused
tho officers. It was the same on
Couldn't Convert tho Burgess.
An amusing incident connected
with the local election happened
when Burgess C. A. McCarty ap
peared before the clerk at the polls.
Two ballo.s were placed before him.
The burgess took one and entered
the booth. Opening his ballot he
failed to locate the men of his choice,
and glancing at tho top of the ticket
discovered that he by mistake had
picked up a Republican ticket in
stead of the one representing his
party. Burgess McCarty returned
the ballot to the clerk, remarking
that he had voted the Democratic
ticket too long to make a change
Miller Wins Democratic Nomination.
The two candidates for nomina
tion for the office of Jury Commis
sioner on tho Democratic ticket were
O. E. Miller and James Moylan and
the result showed that both men
were strong in various districts. O.
E. Miller wins the nomination by a
majority of 50 votes out of 41 dis
tricts. The total vote was:
O. E. Miller, D 396
James Moylan, D 346
F. E. Carlton, R G03
L. S. Partridge, W 342
Democrats Poll Big Vote.
Despite the fact that there was no
contest on for State Committeeman
in the county the total vote for
each candidate was comparatively
large. The Democratic candidate,
W. J. Ferber, received a good vote.
C. H. Dorflinger, tho Republican
nominee, was a close second and F.
S. Stephenson, the Washington par
ty nominee, running third. The
following is the total vote:
W. J. Ferber, V 620
C. H. Dorflinger, R GOO
F. S. Stephenson, W 340
Not All District Returns Given.
On account of tho largo number of
candidates aspiring for nomination
at the primaries for township offi
ces throughout tho county, we aro
unable to publish all tho returns for
all offices, and have taken tho dis
tricts that lie in tho vicinity of
Honesdalo, only. It would be Impos
sible to print tho entire primary voto
by districts as it would undoubtedly
crowd out all other news matter.

wItu the Honesdale Business Men's
Association was presented before the
members of the association by the
trustees at Wednesday evening's ses
sion. The trustees reported their in
terview with the Board of Tradd
committee and stated that commit
tee's recommendation. President S.
T. Ham then asked for an opinion
from tho members present. Owing
to tho fact that the Business Men's
Association is a chartered Institution
and working under the State Busi
ness Men's Association, with which
Is connected fire insurance, it was
thought best not to accept the rec
ommendation of the Board of Trade
committee. After reading the By
Laws of the association It was fear
ed that satisfactory arrangements
could not be made, hence the turning
down of the Board of Trade proposi
tion. BUSY TOWN GOOD ADVER
A town whose industries are busy
is a good advertisement for that
town or city. In Honesdalo tho fac
tories are humming from morning
until night and tho demand for help
is great. Employers and companies
aro advertising for malo and female
help and could use 100 hands now
If it were possible to secure them.
Since tho article appeared in The
Citizen last week the secretary of the
Greater Honesdale Board of Trade
has received a number of inquiries
for help. This not only demonstrates
that a number of people outsido of
Honesdalo desire positions, but that
Tho Citizen is a good advertising
TAMMANY HALL IS SITUATED.
"Say, you," said Luke Levy, the
man who "wants to see you" to a Cit
izen man yesterday, "do you know
where Honesdale's Tammany Hall
is situated?" Tho newspaperman
was obliged to confess his ignorance.
Then Mr. Levy pointed to three trees
and the corner of tho Foster build
ing, and said that the equilateral
rectangle thus indicated was the spot.
That is Honesdale's political centre,
according to Mr. Levy. Right on
that spot more political plans have
been laid, more men nominated or
defeated and more wire-pulling done
than In any other part of the town.
Doubtless Mr. Levy Is right.
A few coal cars derailed this side
of Hawley on Monday prevented the
Honesdale passenger train from go
ing to Lackawaxen, making Us reg
ular afternoon trip. Conductor
Abram Snyder of the Scranton train
made Conductor Charles Lord's trip
to Lackawaxen and the latter Hones
dale train took on the Scranton
train's passengers and baggage and
made tho run to this place for Con
Tho Wayno County Sunday school
convention, which was held in Or
son on Tuesday and Wednesday of
this week, was largely attended.
From Honesdale, Misses Mary Jones,
Stella Hendy and Messrs. W. J.
Barnes and W. B. Lesher were in at

Wayne county were well represented
Tho following officers were elected
for tho ensuing year: President, Dr.
Otto Appley, of Damascus; vice-president,
Dr. A. J. Simons of Newfound
land; secretary, Mrs. Valentine, of
Damascus, and treasurer, Merton J.
Emery, of Ariel.
The speakers wore exceptionally
good and left a number of excellent
thoughts with tho delegates for fu
ture digestion. The convention was
a success and those who attended
feel greatly repaid for having been
present. Dr. Appley, the never-tiring
president, was present and made
a short address. There aro few men
in dear old Wayno that have the in
terest at heart for Sunday school
work that Dr. Appley has. Ho is tho
