THOUGHT FOR TO-DAY.
There is a place In the world and
a mission for humor. At times in
one's experience a bit of fun is bet
ter, more a means of grace, than a
serious sermon would be. Making
a friend laugh Is often the best
help we can give him. The New
The Rev. Dr. Russell H. Conwell,
one of the foremost men in the Bap
tist Church, who is now 70 years
old and broken in health, got up out
of a sick bed and at the risk of his
life went to Keneseth Israel Temple,
in Philadelphia, to speak at the ex
ercises in celebration of the twenty
fifth anniversary of Rabbi Joseph
Krauskopf's ministry there. It was
a great tribute to Dr. Krauskopf, and
It was significant of the breaking
down of barriers between sects and
HARD TO FIND VETERANS.
When Speaker Alter came to look
over the House list for the selection
of the three members of the Sold
iers' Orphan School Commission,
which he is authorized to appoint,
he found the names of only three
Civil War veterans on the roll, Two
are Democrats and one a Republi
can, and he promptly appointed them
John H. Rlebel, of Philadelphia, is
the Republican veteran, and he has
served on the commission for many
years. The Democratic veterans are
P. C. Newbaker, of Montour, and I.
B. Musser, of Juniata.
It comes as a shock to learn that
they are the only survivors of the
Civil War numbered among the Rep
resentatives Of Pennsylvania, The
halls of the Senate and House used
to be full of old soldiers, who did
not seem so very old, and now out of
all that throng 207 ineh only
three veterans are to be found.
Why, It seems as though it was
no longer ago than yesterday the vet
erans were so numerous and so im
portant that in a gathering of that
size, it would have been hard to find
three men who had not served in
rather than a Republican organ, for,
as we said before, such a gross mis
statement of fact could not proceed
from a Republican newspaper, we
are glad to note, however, that the
editor of the Press has subjected his
former opinion to the process of the
"recall," and now admits that: "Not
all judges, federal and otherwise, are
corrupt. We believe the great ma-
jority of them to be honest and up
right." So do we. That is why we
deprecate these savage and whole
sale attacks upon the courts that
have been made in recent times by
Bull Moose speakers and organs. If
a speaker or writer not learned In
the law, feels that he is competent
to criticise a certain decision of the
courts toased on an interpretation of
the law, and does so in temperate
language, there can he no possible
objection to it, though the worthless
ness of his opinion as compared with
that of the learned judges may be
plainly apparent. It Is the vicious
attacks that are being made on the
courts as a body that do harm. By
weakening the power and influence
of the courts and respect for the
judges, they weaken the protection
which the law gives to every citi
Finally, let us say, for the enlight
enment of our Pike county content
porary, that The Citizen, as a Re
publican newspaper, is entirely satis

Alter as Speaker of the House. We
believe him to be honest and able,

HOW JACKSON ATOTED.
During the strifefor chief clerk
ship of the House of Representatives
at Harrlsburg, Hon. H. C. Jackson
voted for Mr. Boyd, the committee
candidate, and on the third ballot
changed his vote to Mr. Garvin, who
was a candidate to succeed himself,
for which action Mr. Jackson is he
Ing pretty generally assailed by the
Democratic press, because as they
allege he voted for a "Penrose
henchman," yet the fact remains
that the member from the home dis
trict of Senator Penrose, Mr. Shern,
voted for Mr. Boyd on all three of
the ballots. Mr. Jackson has hosts
of friends In Wayne county, who
have every confidence In his integ
rity and honesty of purpose, and
who will not allow themselves to be
swerved in their' fidelity toward him
through an appeal to passion and
prejudice by the opposition press.
We clip the following from the

prominently in the corridors of the
hotels and of the capitol were pla
cards, "Vote for the Penrose candi

boomerang evidently, for Mr. Gar
vin took the lead on the first ballot
and retained it until he was declar
ed elected. All of the Lackawanna
Washington - Republican members
voted for Mr. Garvin and many oth
er progressives did likewise.
The activity of Governor Tener
today in the interest of Mr. Garvin
was no small factor In the success
of the chief clerk's campaign. It
was the Tote of H. Clark Jackson,
of Wayne county, who had voted
consistently for Boyd that finally
swung the election to Garvin on the

THREE GASES DISPOSED OF
POPULAR CHOICE OF SENATORS.
The Legislatures of New York and
Ohio have joined the procession for
the popular election of United States
Senators, and it is probable that
Pennsylvania's General Assembly
will follow suit.
The subject was submitted by Gov.
Tener in his recent message, with
out a recommendation, favorable or
otherwise, but although there are
still many able men who believe that
the present method of choice Is the
better one, there are few, If any, who
are actively opposing the change.
It Is probable that the amend
ment to tho Constitution will be au
thorized by the necessary number of
States and that the Legislatures will
soon cease to exercise control over
the upper branch of Congress.
We have no doubt that tho new
method will result in the choice of
good men for tho Senate, hut wo
have yet to ho convinced that it will
result in the choice of better men
than have served there. The per
sonnel of tho Senato has not 'been
beyond criticism at all times, of
course, but neither has tho personnel
of the House, whose members have
always been elected by popular vote.
More depends upon tho good sense
of tho American people than upon
the means they select for expressing
that good sense in government.
VICIOUS ATTACKS DO HARM.
In a good-natured editorial our
esteemed contemporary, tho Pike
County Press, replies to our recent
statement that the Press is not a
Republican newspaper, else it would
not have 'mado such a sweeping con
demnation of tho courts of tho coun
try. Tho Press declared a few weeks
ago that "the many corrupt judges
constituting our federal judiciary
enables tho malefactors of great
wealth to prey upon tho public at
their will." If that declaration means
anything It means that all federal
judges are corrupt. For it is the
judges as a body, whether they be
many or 'few, that constitute the fed
eral Judiciary. It was tho extrava
gance of this declaration that led us
to class the Press as a Bull Moose
ROOSEVELT'S INFLUENCE AVAN
In tho discussion that has been
going- on quietly In Washington in
regard to the reorganization of the
Republican party Senator William E.
Borah of Idaho has been mentioned
frequently as the man about whom
the scattered Republican forces can
be rallied. Many Republicans pre
dict that Senator Borah will be one
of the most prominent candidates
for the Republican nomination in
'Senator Borah is soon to deliver a
dozen speeches In the South of a po
litical character. Ho will deliver a
speech on Lincoln's Birthday before
the Union League Clu'b of Baltimore
and will express some views on "the
reorganization of the Republican
party" that undoubtedly will attract
the attention of tho entire country.
Mr. Borah will follow up his address
with his speaking tour in the South.
He Is a Republican of pronounced
progressive tendencies, but refused

Although little has been said re
cently of the movement to reform the
Republican party along progressive
lines, it has been making a rapid ad
vance under tho surface and In the
opinion of party leaders soon will
assume such proportions as to make
it certain that tho third party move
ment engineered by Col. Roosevelt
Is doomed to fall.
Tho new movement contemplates
the temporary elimination of the old
regular leaders and the putting for
ward of men of well known progres
sive views. In the Senate Borah of
Idaho, La Folletto of Wisconsin,
Brlstow of Kansas and Cummins of
Iowa will figure prominently in the
next session in connection with the
tariff and trust legislation. Little

Four Jacksons Featured
at Scranton Motor Show
January 27 to Feb. 1st
Particular Interest Attaches to Six
Cylinder Model on Exhibit for
Four cars constitute the Jackson
exhibit at the Scranton automobile
show and portray the entire Jack
son line for 1913.
The three models now being pro
duced are designated as the "Olynv
pic," the "Majestic," and the "Sul
tanlc, the first two being four
cylinder types and the last a six.
The fourth car in the exhibit la tho
This is the first year of the Jack
son in the field of sixes, and for that
reason particular interest attaches
to the "Sultanlc."
This model is built in both five
and seven-Dassencer tvnps. It rn-
tains all the characteristics of form
er models that have helped put the
Jackson in tho front rank of easy-
riding cars full elliptic springs,
long wheel base, richly-thick uphol
stery, Turkish cushions, etc.
The cylinders are cast in pairs,
with enclosed valves. The power
plant is a unit, the clutch and trans
mission being enclosed in the same
housing with tho motor fls has been
the Jackson practice for many
years. The motor is 4x4 inches
and rated at 55 horse-power. The
wheelbase is 138 inches, with 3G
inch wheels and 3Gx4V. inch tlresi.
The wheels are demountable, and a
spare wheel Is supplied.
The "Sultanlc" and "Majestic"
both aro fitted with electric starting
and lighting Bystems, generating
current that is accumulated in a
storage battery, with independent
dual ignition sources. The "Olym
pic" carries a Disco starter and au
tomatic lighters in Its gas head
A characteristic of all three is the
scuttle dash, concealing the gravity
fuse gasoline tank. A gasoline
storage tank is carried at the rear,
tho fuel being fed hy pressure pump
into the dash tank, whence it flows
to the carburetor by gravity. Thus
the objections to a force feed into
the carburetor are overcome, and a
total gasoline capacity of twenty
gallons is given to each car.
The "Majestic" witli a four-cylin
der motor of 4x5 Inch bore and
stroke Is rated at 45 horso power,
with 124 Inch wheelbase and 3Gx4
inch tires. The "Olympic" motor is
4x4 inch bore and stroke and
Is rated as 35 horse power. Its
wheelbase Is 115 inches and tire size
34x4 inches. Both are fitted with
10 inch upholstery and Turkish
A feature of all tho models Is the
generous room in the front com
partment and in tho tonneau. All
carry a one-piece ventilating wind
shield, set directly above the dash
and at the rear end of the scuttlo,
so that it is really an integral part
of tho car. All the models are com
pletely equipped, the two fours hav
ing demountable rims and spare rim
