Miss Taggart stole a march on her many friends at this place and went to the home of her sister, Mrs. George Deike, at Kittan niiig, Pa., where the marriage was quietly solemnized last Saturday. The bride is one of Emporium's most charming and accomplished daughters, being a musician of high standing. Mrs. Van Wert has spent her entire life in our midst and we regret that she will not continue her residence here. The genial doctor, also formerly of this place, needs no introduction to our citizens, as he is well and favorably known. He is an industrious and an upright young gentleman, having com pleted his course in medicine last spring. He located at Woodlawn, where he has built up a steady prac tise. Dr. and Mrs. Van Wert will be "at home" to their many friends after January 15th, at Woodlawn. The PRESS extends its heartiest congratula tions and best wishes. LA FKERT Y—BUR LING A M E.

Harry Alvan Hall, President Judge, and Associates, lions, tl :o. ,!. Laßar, and Jolin A. Wykoff, presiding. All licenses for Shippen, Emporium, Driftwood and Gibson were granted, including the new application, (Sizer Springs House,) were granted. All applications from Lumber were held over, as was the Mountain House at Sinnamahoning. Judge Hall has plainly laid down the law to applicants for licenses, em phatically impressing on them that they must not sell to men of known intemperate habits, or to those under the influence of liquor. The Courts of the State seem determined to enforce the law governing the said of booze. Recently at court held at Ridgway Judge Hall called all applicants for li cense to appear before him and made plain the fact that if they desired li censes granted tliey would have to obey the law. They must not sell li quor on Sunday, nor to minors, and he laid special emphasis on the matter of selling to men of known intemperate habits, and to those who were visibly under the influence of liquor. These two points the judge was emphatic upon. Game License Law. An effort will be made by the Game Commissioner to secure the passage of a license tax bill, requiring every hunter to pay SI.OO per capita a year, it is estimated that from 100,000 to 150,- 000 resident hunters frequent the hunt ing grounds. At §1 per head the rev enue would amount to several times the commissioner's biennial appropria tion. It is also argued that a hunter wear ing a number, which is registered will exercise more care than is now the case, and that violations of the game laws and the accidental shooting of people will become less frequent. Taken lo Hospital. Weduesday morning, Mr. Murdiek McNeil, of Rich Valley, was taken to the hospital at Ridgway, suffering with an attack Of appendicitis Mr. McNeil has been in poor health for the past month, but last Friday he was taken suddenly worse and Dr. Bush was has tily summoned to his home.

Smith Purchases Hotel Goodyear. Last week a deal was consumated whereby Harry W. Smith became the proprietor of the Hotel Goodyear again. Owing to the sudden death of Charles D. Weed, the bouse was left without a landlord, and Mrs. Weed did't feel able to assume the responsi bilities of its management, and know ing the value or the property Mr. Smith was prompt in making a proposi tion which resulted in adding one more popular hotel to his chain. This gives ti> Mr. Smith three of the best hotels in this section of the country- The G odyear, at Austin; The Warner at Emporium, and the Clinton at Renovo, and those who know the gentleman know that he can successfully conduct three as easily as one. Walter R. Phelps of Buffalo, with his mother and sister, have been installed in tho Goody car, who, under the tutor ship ot Mr. Smith, will make this hotel as popular with the traveling public as it ever has been in the past . Mr. Smith's many Austin friends are pleased to know that he is again inter ested in our town.—Austin Autograph. Installation of Officers.

We are gratified that the 28-page edi tions of the PRESS issued just before Christmas has attracted wide attention and very favorable comment made by ueighboring editors, many of our sub scribers and especially our advertisers. The following from the Port Allegany Reporter is right to the point: "Emporium is getting considerable merited attention just now by reasou of the holiday advertising campaign inaugurated by the business men of the Catreron county capital in their local papers. Emporium merchants are only doing what business men of other towns will have to come to. Three years ago there wasn't a better mail order towu in western Pennsylvania than Emporium. It's merchants had neglected to keep the people posted ou their stocks and the favorable prices. There was space to sell in local papers aud the mail order bouses bought it. But the merchants united in demand ing attention of the people whose pat ronage ought to come to the town, and now Emporium is spoken of as one of the hustling business centers in the upper Susquehanna basin. Here's to the Emporium business mon who read the writing on the wall and then erased it with the publicity sponge. These sponges can be secured at the newspaper office in any town " That the persistent advertising in the Pit KHS lias set our readers thinking seriously on the mail order house proposition is very evident from the lact that we are compelled to turn down some flittering propositions and shall continue to do so as long as the home merchants mauibwt a disposition to wake up aud let the light shine through our columns. The time lias long since passed when I lie merchant can lean back in his chair, expecting the trade to come his way, unless lie IIH«.« printers' ink liberally, Every successful I merchant is a liberal adver tiaee, every day or every week.

WASHINGTON, January 10.— The an nouncement that Representative Mit chell Palmer, of Stroudsburg, will be a member of the House Committee on Ways and Means should be highly gratifying to those Pennsylvania Re publicans, who, deceived by the cam paign of slander against the head of the Republican ticket last fall support ed the candidates of the Keystone Party. As a member of that Commit tee Mr. Palmer will assist other Demo crats in preparing a bill that will pro. vide the sort of tariff' revision Penn sylvania lias voted against in every campaign in which the protective prin ciple has been even remotely involved. Mr. Palmer, although a man of some ability, was not selected as a member of the Ways and Means Committee be cause of any especial qualifications for the work of revising the tariff. His ap pointment will be due to the desire of the Democratic leaders to recognize the large vote recorded against the Re publican party in Pennsylvania in the receut elections. Champ Clark and other Democrats who will dominate the House in the next Congress be lieve, or say they believe, that the re sult of the Pennsylvania elections in dicated dissatisfaction with the pro tective system ar.d a disposition on the part of the Keystone State to attach it self to the Democratic party. The candidacy of Mr. Berry proved entirely satisfactory to the Democracy. In the Fifty-Ninth Congress, whic'i as sembled in December, 1905, the Penn sylvania delegation was composed of thirty-one Republicans and one Demo crat. The solitary Democrat had been elected by a small majority in the Berks Lehigh District, the strongest Democratic district in the State. Since then the Democrats have steadily in creased their representation and in the next House they will have a delega tion of nine members. Throughout the campaign last fall the people were warned against the slanderous attacks upon Representative Tener. From the stump and by loyal Republican news papers it repeatedly was stated that a vote for the Keystone ticket would be a vote for the Democratic party. De spite this waruing a considerable ele ment of the Republican party support ed the Keystone candidates. Their votes did not elect Mr. Berry. They did, however, elect nine men who will speak and vote against the advance ment of Pennsylvania. The Tariff bill the Democratic party in the llouso will pass will strike a blow at the in dustry in that state. It may or may not become a law. If it should not its failure will be due entirely to the fact that in the Senate are loyal Republi cans, who are still fighting for the maintenance of the tariff system which has enabled Pennsylvania to attain in dustrial supremacy. The Keystone State may congratulate itself upon the fact that it will not be misrepresented in the Senate. Senators Penrose and Oliver are protectionists without a flaw Their influence will be exerted in an effort to prevent the destructive tariff' legislation, which will be pro posed by the House Democracy, to which liedy Pennsylvania, as a result of Mr. Berry's "victory" was so sub stantial a contributor.
