The largest vote ever polled in Hones
dale was at last Tuesday's election, COS
being cast, of which lll'J were straight
Democratic, and 95 straight Republican.
The Honesdale National Hank has
now on deposit $8,000 of the general
fnnd of the State, and the Wayne Coun
ty Savings Bank $25,000 of the sinking
The cold snap is bringing long dis
used furnaces into requisition. Parties
starting fires in them and using the
steam or hot water system of heating
should be careful to have the necessary
amount of water in the boilers, other
wise a serious accident may occur.
The Citizen, giving a summary of
general and local election news, and an
nouncing the result as to all District and
Wayne county candidates, was issued at
five o'clock on Wednesday morning. The
entire out of-town-edition was in the
mails and on its wav to subscribers in, the
early trains leaving Honesdale ; and town
and suburban subscribers found the
news on their breakfast tables. The po
litical section was printed in a different
color from the body of the paper, an in
novation which attracted much attention
and won many encomiums.
Mrs. Charles A. Dunkelberg, of
Seelyville, fell last spring, and injured
her right shoulder. It pained her con
siderably, but she did not pay much at'
tention to it. Finally she could stand it
no longer, and was taken to a Scranton
hospital for treatment, some four weeks
after her fall. Being placed under an
X-ray, it revealed the fact that her arm
was broken close to the shoulder joint
Last Sunday, while returning from St
John's Lutheran church, she tripped on
a dead limb on the sidewalk, and fell
again, breaking the same arm, and in the
State Fish Commissioner Median
has completed bis work with the Tri
State Fish Commission and expects that
the legislation to be adopted this winter
by the Legislatures of three States will
prove very valuable to the Delaware
river. Game and food fish are well
cared for and different regulations made
for the river below Trenton. .Mr. Median
says that he believes the suggestion that
appeals be allowed from the convictions
in magistrates courts and tho abolition
of the system of giving half the fines as
rewards for informers or special war
dens will meet general favor, as they will
remove causes of vigorous objections
from fishermen throughout the counties
where numerous arrests have been made.
The provision for thirty wardens is jus
tified by the department on the ground
that it will -concentrate all of the busi
ness under one responsible head and do
away with the special wardens to a great
extent. At present there are nine war
dens, although the Commissioner is au
thorized to name twelve.
