WORK IN MONTOUR A statistical review of the marriage lloense books at the prothonotary's office at the courthouse will show con clusively that race suHide can not be classed among the imminent dangers in Little Montour. The records show a number of li censes issued in 1906 that would cause the face of even our strenuous Teddy to be wreathed in smiles. In the year just closed 131 couples agreed to trot in double harness over the matrimonial track, with results that may be expected to add material ly to the returns of the next census. It would no doubt make interesting reading if we were able to relate the circumstanoes that induced these 262 hearts to beat as 131, but the ways of Dan Oupid are many, varied, effec tive and often dubious, and to no one does he disclose his past or future plans. The number of lioenses in 19CH! is far ahead of that for 1905, there hav ing been 116 issued that year. 1906, however, can just about hold her own with the records of the several vears previous, that of 1904 being 130 aud 1903 being 134. Several reasons for this seeming dis inclination to single blessedness have beeu advanced Some there ire who profess to believe that men generally all over the country are coming to find that what they most need to round out their charactor and to develop their abilities to the best attainable degree is a helpmeet of the opposite sex. Others advance different causes, but it is more tliau likely that the real reason for the lack of cautiousness, if so it may be called, is to be found in the more material fact that the pros perity that is just now pervading the laud has imbued the naturally gener ous spirit of the mau with a desire to have one by his side who may enjoy i the outpourings from the horn of ' plenty while Dame Fortune smiles. Don't Need Them. A feature of the forthcoming auuual ; report of Major Isaac B. Brown, sec- ! rotary of internal affairs, will bo an J elaborate discussion of the question of the reconstruction of a system of can als in Pennsylvania. Major Brown opposes the project, and takes up many pages of his report to tell why. He assumes that the can als, generally speaking, are not need ed for the convenience of shippers and that the basis of the agitation is a theory that their rehabilitation would keep down freight rates on the rail roads. Major Brown believes that that is a false premise to start from ; that the oanals, because of the universal de mands for quick transit, could not be an important factor, aud cites the fact that in New York, where they have the Erie canal connecting with the Great Lakes with tide water, freight rates are higher than in Pennsylvania, and the further fact that iu Pennsyl vania the average receipts p«i mu i*-i mile are very muoli lower on all the railroads than they were when the canals were all in full operation. Aud if this were not so and the rate were not voluntarily kept down to a fair and reasonable flgrue the State govern ment has the power to insure other shippers reasonable rates, and it only remains for the State to exercise that power in a just and conservative way. Secretary Brown concludes that the millions which would be required in the useless effort to reproduce canals, which, he Hays, have had their day aud are now only a reminiscence, as a means of creating competition, could with much more propriety in other industrial affairs. Captain Forrester Has Retired. The Pennsylvania Railroad company lias formally announced the retirement of Captain C. W. Forrester, superin tendent of the Union Line, stationed at Chicago. Captain Forrester's long connection with the company entitles him to re tirement under the rules of the Penn sylvania compauy relating to em ployees who have served long aud faithfully. Frank L. Borton has been appointed to fill the vacancy. The poistiou that Captain Forrester has lust vacated is a most respusible one, inasmuch as the superintendent of the Union Line is in charge of the Penn sylvania's freight business west of tho Alleghenies. Especial interest attaches itself to Captain Forrester by reason of the fact t' at he is a native of this section, aud calls Pauville his home town,hav ing served his apprenticeship in the railroad station here. In his long terra of service with the Pennsylvania com pauy he was constantly promoted, be ing located at Louisville for a num ber of years, then at Chicago. It is the intention of Captain For rester to return to Danville, his old home, aud enjoy his first prolonged period of rest and freedom from busi ness cares that lias come to him since he has been in the employ of the Penn sylvania. Captain Forrester is a thoroughly self made man.and is regarded as one of the most capable executives of the Pennsylvania Railroad company. A POPULAR CHORD The Hazleton Daily Standard says : "Governor Peuuypacker struck a pop ular chord iu his message in urging tho importance of continuing and en larging the "good roads" programme. An excellent start has been made, and there is widespread demand for still greater appropriation." Especially now, when everybody who is obliged to use the ordinary mud roads, finds them almost impassable, is the need of Holid road beds most keeuly felt. Workman Injured hand. Alex' Ashtou, Jr.. Cedar street, em ployed at the structural tubing works, while woming about the rolls ou Sat urday,struck the back of his left baud against a piece of hot iron as it was leaving the roll*, inflicting a painful jgaah several inches loug. SATURDAY WAS A BEAUTIFUL DAY Saturday added a marvel to the weather record. It was a day seldom Beeu iii wiuter, aud would not nave beeu out of place iu April. The last trace of snow aud ice had disappeared. The air was fresh aud invigorating aud all day long the sun shone out of a clear sky, flooding the landscape aud bringing light and cheerfulness into places that had been dark and gloomy for a long time pre viously. Everyone who could do so spent at least a portion of the day out of doors, while thoße who were shut iu doors heaved a sigh of regret as they caught glimpses of the light and cheerfulness outside. Everyone felt better because of the beautiful day. which followed as such a refreshing contrast to the sluggish, uuseasouable weather of the week pre vious. The grumpy mau took on a smile while to the grip victims the warm sunshine proved a wonderful balm aud they forgot a few of their aches aud pains. Altogether it was au object lesßon to show what a wonderful part the weather plays in the happiness and welfare of humanity. There is a dis position iu some quarters to critize people for showing such a deep con cern in the condition of the weather. Perhaps some people aro morbidly in clined in this matter. It is certainly futile and it may he foolish to bewail the dark aud depressing days that oc cur, but few nre exempt from the fol ly. At the same time,mau to some ex tent redeems himself when In yields to the influence of such a day as Sat urday aud, iu the hundred and one ways that lie is capable of, shows liis appreciation of the good things that the weather occasionally flings his way. To Protect From Bogus Stocks. Au act will be introduced at the j coming session of the Pennsylvania legislature that will be of interest and coucern to all Holders of mining stocks. It is asserted by the legislators who will father the bill that in nearly ev ery section of this State there has been a lot of miuiug stock sold that is worth scarcely the paper it is printed on. These Btocks have been sold at such low figures that when the pur chasers find they have been duped they hesitate to prosecnte under the laws providing for punishment of those who obtain moneys by false pretense. Under the proposed law any persons who advertise or in any way circulate false or misleading statements about the miuos on which the stock is issu ed. or tell any uutruths iu connection with their efforts to find purchasers for their stock, will be guilty of fraud and liable to be punished by a flue not exceeding SIO,OOO, or imprisonment | not exceeding ten years, or either or ! both, at the discretion of the court. The victims of worthless mining stock iu very many cases are poor peo ple who are caught by the offers to become "mine owuerß" at an expense of two or three cents a share the in ducement being held out that the stock will be worth much more in a very short time. Iu many cases the purchas ers cuii never dispose of the stock and are out of their savings. A hill similar to the one that will lie presented at Harrisburg will he in troduced iu every State in the union and there are good chances of the law becoming a general one. Increased Pay for Legislators. Following in the footsteps of the congressmen, some of the members of the Pennsylvania legislature want more pay for their jobs. They are agitating a movement looking toward an increase of salary from $ 1,500 to #2,000 for each session. A hill will probably be introduced after the recess to add SSOO to their compensation Should the bill pass aud receive the approval of the governor it would not atfect the present members,as the con stitution prohibits an increase of a public official's salary during the term for which he has been eleoted. The loss of railroad passes is the main in centive for the demand for higher pay. Now that the members have to pay their carfare to aud from Harrisburg it is contended that the job of being a legislator, at the old rate of wage,does not pay for the time lost aud the neg lect of business at home while in Har risburg. However.we have heard of no mem ber of the legislature threatening to resign his position became he is not getting pay enough. Surprise at Rushlown. A delightful surprise was tendered at the home of Mi. aud Mrs. S. A. Eckmau, Rushtowu, Saturday evening, in honor of Mr. Eckraau's fifty-second birthday. Mr. Eckmau was presented with a handsome rocking chair by the party. Games aud music were indulg ed in aud later in the evening refresh ments were served. Those present, were Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Reabuck, Mr. aud Mrs William Gulick, aud son Charles, Mr. and Mrs. John Eoknrt, son Paul and daughter Ethel, Mr. and Mrs. William Salter, Mr. and Mrs. K W. Gademau and son Leo, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Fisher, sous Arlington aud Charles, Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Hummer, son Joseph aud daughter Sue. Sat Beside riany Judges. Associate Judge Fox, of Columbia county, retired Saturday after ten years ol service on the bench. During his term of office he sat with four regular president judges— Ikeler, Herring, Little aud Evans. Some of the special judges who came to the Columbia county bflueli during his term of office were Judge Ferris, of Wilkes Barre ; Saudow.of Scranton ; Newcomb, of Sciautou; Lynch, of Wilkes-Barre; Wheaton, of Wilkes- Harre; McClure, of Snyder county; Staples, of Monroe county: Savage and Auten.of Northumberland county,and Durham, of Sullivan county. Miss Amanda Yuuugman returned to Wellesly Sautrday after a visit at the home of Mrs. Augus Wright, Up per Mulberry street. BUY BITTEN BY ILL-TEMPERED DOG Gerhard Snyder, the little sou of Landlord I. A. Snyder of the City ho tel. was very badly bitteu by a dog Monday morning The occurrence caused a great deal of excitement and incidentally led to the death of the dog. The dog was a piece of canine drift wood that found its way to town at the time the Guardsmeu came home from Gettysburg. It is said that he followed the soldiers all the way from the historic battefield. Certain it is that he accompanied them on the lat ter stage of the journey and arrived at town iu company with the horse rid den by Dr. Shultz.the surgeon accom panying the guardsmen. When the horse waß returned to his stall in Hoke's livery stable at the rear of Oitv hotel the dog went along with him aud the stable was liis sleeping place from that day until Monday when lie met his ignoble death. The dog was a big fellow aud no doubt had Newfouudlaud blood iu It is veins, although there was a huge dip of other blood not so easily classified and he bore the unmistakable stamp of a mongrel. He had a happy faculty of making friends, however,and seem ed to be tolerated wherever he went aud he went every where. He subsisted on the offals from the hotel kitchen and had nothing to do but get acqua inted with people. Nearly every day he selected some new master on which to lavish his affections aud seemed the beßt natured dog in the world. What followed Monday morniug therefore came as a surprise. The dog was feasting on a bone when master Snyder appeared on the scene. What followed is not exactly known except that the dog snapped the boy seizing one of his little fingers, sinking his teeth into the bone, and lacerating the member badly. Dr. Paules was summoned, who cauteriz ed the wound. A short time after the edict went forth that the dog would have to die and it fell upon the chief-of-police to perform the act of execution. It was still early in the day when the dog ]>aid the penalty of his ill temper and ceased to exist. Master Snyder, the bov bitten, at last accounts was doing very well. Preparing For Exhibition. The elaborate arrangements for the annual gymnasium exhibition of the Y. M. C. A., which have been in course of preparation for the past two mouths, are rapidly uearing comple tion, and the show, whioli is to be pre sented in the Association hall on the evenings of Friday and Saturday of this week, promises to be the most complete, the most amusing and the most instructive entertainment that lias ever been undertaken by the local Association. For the occasion of the exhibition a stage has been erected, 18x34, td ac comodate the 80 performers who will kabft part dnring the evening. The different classes, under the careful supervision of Physical Director A ins worth, have been rehearsing for over two months, and have arrived at de gree of proficiency that is little short of marvelous. On the program will appear a num ber of special features, some of which have never before been witnessed "hi Danville. Notable among tlieso are the Electrical Club Swinging by Mr. Ains worth and a Marching Song by a class of Japanese Lantern Girls. Included iu the class work will be Dumb Bell Dril's by Juniors aud Seniors, Wand Drill by Girls, Club Swinging by Intermediates, Advanced Work ou the Parallel Bars, Work ou the Horse, together with other num bers that goto make up a complete exhibition. Plans for New Pennsy Yard. The rumors about contemplated im provements between Shauiokiu Dam and Seliusgrovo have been numerous within the past four months,but were so indefinite as not to disclose their real character. Tho general drift of the reports assigned the Pennsylvania railroad company as the projector of the intended improvements, but there were wild rumors of other parties connected with the project "across the river" from Suubury. There is now more definite informa tion which assigns these operations to the Pennsylvania railroad. James K. Davis, of Philadelphia, a former resi dent of Suubury aud Seliusgrove, and familiar with what is going on in Sny der county,says he has positive knowl edge of the Pennsylvania compauy's intended operations between the Dam aud Seliusgrove,having seen the plans of the projected work. A double track stoue bridge is to be built across the river below the dam, which will con nect with the road at Suubury. A large classification yard with the re quisite number of tracks will extend from the dam to Seliusgrove aud at the latter point a bridge to be built across the river will connect with the tracks of the Susquehanna division below Selinsgrove Juuotion. By this arrangement the lack of trackage at Sunbury will be overcome aud class ification facilities to the largest extent will be secured. In conjunction with this extensive work auother compauy. jointly with the Pennsylvania, will erect a Btreet car plant. The expense of these improvements is put at $5,- 600,000. The above information gives the most logical solution of the reported improvements across Hue river in Sny der county, as it conforms with the Pennsylvania compauy's track neces sities at Suubury where the converg ence of a number of roads requires en larged classification facilities. Qlve mtchell the Credit. The past year has witnessed fewer criminal cases in Northumberland county than any year during the past two decades. This is said to be due to President John Mitchell, of the United Mine Workers, who advised the members of the union to keep out of law suits yrheuever possible, and to Judge Savidge's condemnation of jus tices multiplying and forming cases. THE LAW AND __ JUSTICE Law ought to be the voioe of jus tice. In its administration it very sel dom is. Its interpreters shonld be among the ablest, the wisest and tho most impartial of men. They are fre quently nothing of the sort. The oourts high and low,should be the protectors of the injured, the humble,the friend less and the oppressed. Too often they oppose the poor,defraud the friendless and are swayed by the power of in fluence or the prestige of wealth. The situation is not quite as despe rate in this conuttry now as it was a few years ago. During the recent mouths some influential criminals have been detected, tried, convicted and punished. The servants of the law are on the trail of others. The pro spects are brighter than they have been for years. Popular discontent is dim inishing. Popular confidence is being restored to those courts whose judges are showing themselves the servants of righteous judgement. We have a long way to go. All the evils have not been eliminated,all the wrongs righted. It is still true in many instances that eastern methods are pursued by those who ought to be without stain or reproach. The crim inal who is able to hire an able and unscrupulous attorney or to bring powerful influences to bear in his be half still esoapes too often nnwhipped of justice. Too often the poor wretch who has neither friends nor influence goes into retirement for a long term of years, or even to the gallows, while his guiltier neighbor, who is resource ful, and powerful, escapes Nevertheless improvement is discern ible. The people realize that they are still the governiug force in this coun try. and are showing a marked dis position to use their power. They will use it not for the purpose of putting sham reformers into power, but that they mav promote the ends of justice, dignify law, enlarge the sphere of truth and hasten the millenium. They will use to emphasize the fact that all men, no matter what their position, must obey the law and that other vital fact that all are entitled to the pro tection of tho law. They will use it to put into the judicial office, begin ning with the justices of the peace, strong men, pure men, sympathetiq men, wise men, to the end that the law may be honestly and impartially administered, not huckstered out to the highest bidder, and that justice may be dealt out always to all men without fear or favor. The people want to trust the courts. They want to believe that the judges are inviucible to any argument save that which the law presents. They know that many of the judiciary are men of stainless character aud unques tioned honesty. They intend that the number of good judges shall rapidly multiply in this great republic, and that the failure of justice shall be the rarest possible exception to the rule. Needs Vast Sum. State Highway Commissioner Hunt er wants the legislature to appropriate (ti,000,000 for the improvement of the roads in Pennsylvania during the next two years. This sum, with the (3,000,- 000 available out of the fund of (<>,• 500,000 appropriated by the legislature of 1903, would give the department a fund of 14,500,000 annually the next two years. " Witli (9,000,000 for two years we could build from 900 to 1,000 miles a year of scientific road in Pennsyl vania," said Highway Commissioner Hunter in discussing his plans for new legislation. "Many of the countries have already beeu allotted their share of the present fund, and unless the legislature makes au additional ap propriation we cannot continue the work iu these connties. "Certain legislators and other ad vocates of the 'good roads' movement have suggested that the legislature appropriate more thau (6,000,000 for the next two years, but I do not agree with them. It would be simply im possible for this department to expend judiciously more thau (4,500,000 or (5,000,000 a year for road bnilding in this State." Robbers' Desperate Work. SCRANTON, Jan. 9. A daring aud sensational robbery took place last night at the office of the Mountain Lake Coal company at South Scranton, when eight masked men dynamited the safe and secured (25, with which they escaped. The burglary was the most daring kuown here in years and the boldness with which the desperadoes operated has aroused the officials of Lackawanna county and the city of Scrantou. Shortly after midnight eight bur glars armed with revolvers, jimmies, nitroglycerine, drills and a full line of other foot pads' parpherualia, sur rounded the colliery in question and gradually drew closer to the office keeping a sharp look out the entire time for any danger that might pre sent itself. Surprising the night watchman, and two teamsters, who happened to be there, the masked men draggod them to the stable where they were tied after i?eii)g gagged to pre vent au outcry. The men then returned to the office where they proceeded to blow open the safe without molestation while two of the robbers kept a vigil over the three men locked In the barn. (25 was se cured from the safe and the men made their way off into the woodß. No ar rests have as yet been made. Counsel for Fisher. Hnery Fisher, accused of the murder of Mrs. Sarah Klinger, and having se cured no attorneys to defend him. the Sunbury court has decided to appoint the well known firm of Welsh and Welsh, of Shamokln, to look aftor tlm man's interests. rioney Qrders at Berwick. The Berwick Enterprise published the figures to show that last year near ly a quarter of a dollars worth of money orders wjere isstjfld the local postofßce. Just think how much that money would have done to benefit the town,lf it had been kept at home! DAME AM TYPHOID FEVEH In view of the terrible epidemic of typhoid fever in Scrantou and the fact that the disease seems to be gaining some foothold in Danville there are people in town who are considering the advisability of boiling drinking water. Precautions are alwayß wise. At the same time people should be properly informed that they may understand whether or not there is real danger of infection from any source. Seven cases of typhoid fever as shown by the report of the local registrar for December, is not exactly reassuring, it is true, in view of the fact that dur ing November there was not a single case of that disease reported. At the same time there is nothing alarming in the presont showing, although it might be well enough to set same in vestigation on foot to determine the cause of the development of seven cases in such a short time. All depends up on whether or not the disease remains nearly in its present limits or should spread rapidly. As to whether or not tlm epidemic at Scrantou puts the towns further down the river in peril would,first,de pend upon whether or not the sewage from the stricken city finds its way in to the north branch and,second, wheth er or not the towns further south along the Susquehanna draw upon that stream for their water supply. As relates to the first, Scrantou is situated on Lackawanna creek, a trib utary of the north branch, so that it is not beyond the range of possibility that infected sewage from Scrantou should find its way into the Susque hanna. It is probable, however, that in the wholesale precautious taken to prevent the spread of the disease the matter of sewage is carefully looked after. Wilkes-Barre is not believed to be in any peril from the Scranton epidemic, as the water supply of Wilkes-Barre comes from a point higher tliau Scran tou. The cases of typhoid in Wilkes- : Barre at present are believed to be due I to the victims visiting Scrantou and 1 drinking water there. Danville is one of the towns that obtains its water supply from the North branch. The danger, however, of taking in disease germs that might escape from Scrantou is considered remote, indeed. It will be recalled that the same an ixety was felt when the epidemic of typhoid existed at Berwiok a year or so ago, but that Danville even then did not contract the disease—a cir cumstance that would goto BIIOW pretty conclusively that we are remov ed beyond the limit, of danger in the present instance. /Irs. Amermin Passes Away. Mrs. Margaret J. Amermau, widow of the late Jesse O. Amormaii, depart ed this life at 2o'clcok Saturday after noon following a brief illness. Mrs. Amerman, who of 'late years was a resident of this city, was visit ing at the home of William Rishel noar Catawissa, when she was seized with grip, which later became com plicated with pneumonia. She was only ill about ten days. Mrs. Amermau was sixty-five years of age. She was born in Montour county and lived in Danville and vic inity all her life. Before marriage she was Margaret J. Applemau. She was a widely kuown and most highly es teemed woman. She was a member of the Mahoning Presbyterian church and was a devoted and consistent Christian. Mrs. Amermau is survived by two sons, both attornoys, Charles V. Am ermau, of this city and Edwin C. Amermau, of Scrantou. Eli Apple mau, of Valley township, is a brother of the deceased. Three sisters also survive; Mrs. Jameß Vandevender, of Northumberland, Mrs. Charles Reutz, of Williainsport.and Mrs. George Oil more, of Liudeu, Pa. Mrs. Margaret J. Amerman, whose deatli occurred Saturday,was consign ed to the grave in Odd Fellows' ceme tery Tuesday a'fternoon. The funeral was held in Mahoning Presbyterian church aud was largely attended. The services were conducted by Rev. J. E. Hutchison. Two selections were rendered by a quartette consist ing of Mrs. | Scarlet, Miss Margaret Ammerman, W. R. Miller and J. B. McCoy. The pallbearers were James Shultz, Amos Vastine,David Shelhart, John M. Sechler. John H Brugler aud Henry Divel. The flowers were very beautiful aud consisted of a large uuni ber of tributes. The following persons from out of town attended the funeral: Mrs. George Qilmore, of Linden; Mr. aud Mrs. James Vandevender aud Miss Best, of Northumberland; Mr. and Mrs. Charles Rentz, Mr. aud Mrs. William Hess, Mrs. C. W. Oilmore.of Williamsi>ort, aud Ralph and Mary Amermau, of Scranton. AN OLD PUBLIC BUILDtNG. The city ot Chester has a city hall , built in 1724. which is claimed to he the olilest public building in the Unit ed States. It is a substantial aud well preserved structure, aud the Morning Republican says that a "committee from tlie Delaware County Historical society appeared at 9 meeting of the property committee of the city coun cils and made a proposition whereiu they offered to purchase the old his toric hall provided councils would uame a price." As the building is eight years older than Independence hall in Philadelphia aud eighteen years older thau the first Eanueil hall in Boston, destroyed by fire iu 1761, and many important historic events took place within its walls, the move jnenf is a laudable one.
