THE CITIZEN'S RETURNS.
Tho Citizen was a vertlble beehive
last night. The continual click of
the key of-the Western Union special
"wire, operated by Jacob Relf, gave
us unequalled service. As tho nies-!
sages were received they were
Hashed upon a screen from a stero
opti. on machine by Her. George S.1
Wendall, who kindly volunteered his
lamp and services. The telegrams
were then given to our linotype
operator, who set them up for the
papfr They are found upon Ul2
first page of The Citizen. The Ex
change and Literary club also re
ceived Tho Citizen's special service.
Afide from the telegraph wire our
offl' e was equipped with three
'phones, two on the Hell system and
one on the Consolidated. This made
the service complete. Tho office
corps, which was reinforced, was
kept busy answering tho many calls
to The Citizen by Us valued and
faithful correspondents from all
sections of Wayne county, who gave
us the vote from their respective
election districts. To our efficient
co-workers, The Citizen Is exceeding
ly grateful lh that through them so
complete a report is herein repro
duced from Wayne county. Through
the interest manifested by the pub
lic wo feel justly repaid for our
venture. We desire to express our
appreciation to those who volunteer
ed their services and assisted In re
ceiving or sending messages over
the 'phones. Also to any who In any
way gave their personal help to make
The Citizen's service the success that
it proved to be.
The Citizen Is indebted to the di
rectors of tho Honesdale National
back for the courtesy extended, al
lowing us to place our screen upon
that Institution's building. It was
an ideal place to reproduce the re
turns, being high enough so every
body could read them.
THE RAILROAD WORM.
What to do with tho "railroad
worm," or maggot, tho worst pest
now menacing apples in this state,
Is a question confronting tho Penn
sylvania agriculturalist. Getting its
namo from tho fact that it bores
tunnels around through the pulp of
the apple, devouring tho tissues as
far as it goes, it does not confine it
self to tho core, as does tho Codling
moth, and Is all the more destructive
on that account. It has been found
In fallen apples abundantly In the
northern counties of tho state this
Fall and also extends south through
tho mountainous regions as far as
Prof. H. A. Surface, stato zoolog
ist, states that this is a new pest in
this section, and a very serious ono
at that. It especially attacks sweet
apples, and will remain in them for
days before entering tho soil to un
dergo transformation Into little
brown pupao and later llttlo gray
flies, not unllko tho house fly In ap
pearance, although somewhat small
er. Tho warmer tho weather tho
sooner they leavo tho fruit. This
fly lays Its eggs on other fruit and
as these hatch tho fruits aro affect
ed. Wo aro advised by Professor Sur
face that tho best way to ellmlnato
tbo worm Is to destroy tho fallen
fruit every few days. This can bo
done either by pasturing the ground
tinder tho trees with hogs or sheep,
or by gathering tho fallen apples and

IS THERE COPPER IN WAYNE ?
Letter I'rom South Cniinan .Mnn Says
There Is ami Wants to Prove it
Many Other Minerals Like
Tho following letter was received
by a South Canaan 'man who has
done considerable prospecting In
Colorado and recently has found
good specimens of copper oro In
Wayne county. He says ho has lost
his specimens but can find more.
Tho. truth of his assertion Is well
founded and it is likely that in a few
years more valuable discoveries may
South Canaan, Nov. 1, 1912.
Having written for publication to
the two other Honcsdale papers with
reference to the undeveloped mineral
showing that to a practical eye Is so
noticeable along the courses of the
Mile Brook and Middle Creek dis
tricts in Canaan, South Canaan and
Cherry Ridge townships, I deem It
not only fair but just to tbo people
of Wayne that your many readers,
who may not be readers of the other
papers, and at the same time may be
more numerous than any one of
them, should also have the opportun
ity of seeing what in some future
day will open up and develop Into
Wayne county's great mineral wealth.
My experience as a practical mineral
ogist has extended over rich mining
sections of Colorado and Wyoming,
Virginia and Tennessee, also for a
short time in North Carolina and
in which localities I have succeeded
in locating some very rich mines. In
the townships mentioned 1 have
found iron and copper croppings so
profuse that there is certainly a bed
of those rich minerals located here.
The surface showing hero far ex
ceeds what had been found in Cripple
Creek or Leadville, Colo., prior to the
opening up for develnement of those
I ereat camns: sn Httlp was tho shrw.
ing at Cripple Creek that the discov
erer was by his associates deemed
crazy, hla enemies through envy
spread broadcast flagrant accounts
of his dementia, yet the camp proved
to be one of the great gold prtfdueGfS
of the world. I rtd hQl promise gold
nor Oliver for this place, still It may
ha bore, but so conlident am I that
Iron and copper abounds that I offer
my services to locate an Iron and
copper mine in one of the townships
herein mentioned if some of the peo
ple of this locality will be enterpris
ing enough to undertake to investi-
Copper as a mineral permlates cer
tain formation of rock sometimes to
great distances from Its sourco or
beds, and the development of locat
ing of the pay bodies is often retard
ed because someone who thought
they had it misusod it; too often this
is done through treachery or Inex
perience. The excavation for a reser
voir at the Stato hospital exposed
copper-stained rock that is fully as
Indicative of mineral as the dump of
Portland properties at Victor, Colo.,
was to John Harnen, when he discov
ered two rich mines. Any mineral
ogist may seo for himself by examln
ing tho dump at Farview near tho
site of the hospital buildings.
Near Lakewood. this countv. sam
pies of copper were found and sent
or shipped to an institution to be
analyzed. They were said to be lost
by the express company. I have con
signed to the Pratt Institute at
Brooklyn, New York, samples of ore
confiding them to tho caro of a man
that I believe to have integrity and
honor whoso namo is F. J. Gibbons,
or Brooklyn, and though I have writ
ten tho institution twice asking them
for Information, and each time send
ing postage for return mall, I cannot
Hnd trace or tiths of tho mineral
I therefore came to tho conclusion
that since tho Pratt Institute Is an
endowment of the lato Mr. Pratt, Its
present managers must bo a lot of
drones or worse. If they aro guilty
of conspiracy, to hold back tho de
velopment oi tins district ror some
future corporation to gobble, they
should, as such, bo prosecuted. My
ueuei is ior tno present, not poster
lty, to have some of tho residue from
wealth that God placed In tho bowels
or tho earth for their benefit.
I will thank you In advance to
publish. If anyono wishes to confer
with mo concerning tho mineral, 1
can bo found by addressing W. E.
Rellly, Waymart, Pa., caro A. J.
Peet, R. D. 2. Again thanking you.
I am, yours truly,
