THE HONESDALE CITIZEN ; TffURSD.VY MPRNtffGK AUGUST 18. 1908,
Br EDWARD It ALE BRUSH. THH now ctmlrmnn of the Iiemiv crntlc national committee, Nnr man E. Mack, proprietor of the Puffulo Tlmea nnd tnetnticr of the national committee from Now TorW, ban always clntmod to lw n Dem ocrat of the old faahtoncd typo. Tarty loyalty and rrinihirlty have t-ecn hla wotcbwonls s a newspaper publisher and political lender, and his nnfnltcr Inu adherence to his party under all circumstances and condition have won him a reputation throuftliout the country for exceptional devotion to the -&tSfrmfiih theories of srovcniinont and their emlwdlment In political or ganization. Mr. Mack's rlvaJ, Frank II. Hitch cock, chairman of tlio Republican na tional committee, called on William J. Bryan at the Auditorium Annex In Chi cniro the day nfter the choice of Mr. Mack a Democratic chairman and In the cooree of conversation paid a trib ute to his opiwnent In party manage ment. "I congratulate you and the Democratic party," said Mr. Hitch cock, "on your scli-otlon of n chairman for the national committee. Nnruiau E. Mack Is a first class man nnd will be an Ideal clinlrliniii." "Thank yon." :ild Mr. I'.rjmi. "1 think you are pietl) nearly tilth! 'I Is a dilllrult matter In .- mi Idem chairman became n mini who It an Ideal chairman Is presidential titular, . and me cun't generally get men who are (xissllile presidents to run cam paigns." Hut, though Mr. Mack hns never lieen talked of for president, he did hnvo a lco iresldentlal lioom at Denver, although he did not foster It himself, and he has been mentioned moru than once In connection with the Demo cratic nomination for governor of New Tork. There would be one good rea on why he could not run for the presi dency, anyway. That Is the fact that he was bom In Canada. He celebrated bis fiftieth birthday the SJJIi of July, Just the day before bla elevation to his recent honors. In his school days In Indon, Ontario province, be bad for a chum John MacDonald, now well known as tlie editor of the Toronto Olotie. Editor MiieUonalil and Editor Mack have kept up their friendship of boyhood days. Mr. MacDonald Is a warm friend of Mr. Bryan and enter tained the Nebraska n at bla homo when ho mado a tour of Canada not long ago. When Mr. Mack's nrine camo up nt Chicago In connection with the party chairmanship Editor Mac Donald put In a good word with the Democratic presidential nominee In behalf of his old schoolmate, and It had weight with Mr. Bryan, even though It came from a man who will not have any part as r. voter In the contest. Carved Out His Own Career. As a youth Sir. Mart; decided that be could carve out a career for himself better In the United Sullen than In Canada, and he went to Bradford, !Pa. This was during the early oil ex citement In Hint country. On Ids re moval to Buffalo ho started the Times, at first only as a Sunduy paiicr. Thlt (was In 1870. The patwr hSd an uphill Struggle nt first. The Times called a lapndo n spade, nnd the days of new Journalism had not then arrived. In those days of hard sledding the pro prietor often lost sleep of nights won dering where be was going to get tba money for bis payroll. But he hung on, and iierslstenee won. Four ysan after the establishment of tbo Sunday Tlmes-that Is, In WS3-the dally Tlmea was started. It, too, hud n rough road to travel at first, but now enjoys a largo circulation and has attained a national reputation In the field of Jour nalism. Mr. Mack Nvniue n iiolltlclan at 'about the same time he liecaine. a newspaK'r man. But ho has never been an olllce seeker that Is, a seeker of offices with fat salaries attached. The offices he has held have lieen those of trust and responsibility In the party orgiiilzntlnii, otllccs that paid htm nothing, but that necessitated oftentimes a good deal of outlay on his part, tils first vierlcnru ns n dele gate to 11 ntilrimul convention wns In 181)2, and ho tins not missed n conven tion since. It wns hi WHO that he was first elected New York niemlcr of the national committee, succeeding tho late Frank Imnfortli. He has now served eight years In that imBl and, as he wim again chosen to It at the re cent convention In Denver, will serve another four years. "The Commissioner." Mr. Mack has a handsome residence on -Delaware avenue, Buffalo's most fashionable residence street. The mis tress of the mansion ami the mother of the chairman's two lienutlfiil young daughters Is n woman of unusual Cleverness and culture. Mr. Muck sometimes calls his wife "the com missioner" In plnjful allusion to tba offices of that kind she has tilled. The Pan-American exposition first brought Into play her rapacity In matters of that kind. Mr. Muck worked loyally both with his piiivr and through his lnfliienco with Democratic stntiwiaon nt Washington In behalf of Bufriiln's beautiful though III futed fulr. He holHil muteriiilly to put through the bills which pledged tho uld of tint na tional government to the undertaking. Did Excellent Work. Mrs. Mack was an active memlier of the lioard of woman maiiagers nnd did much entertaining In connection with the entcrpiNo. A year or two inter, when It camo tlmo to appoint the New York commission to tl'.o Louisiana Purchase cxtKmltlnn nt St. Louis, Governor Odell made Mrs. Mack the only woman member of the com mission, nnd she did excellent work In that capacity Mrs. Mack wns MNs Harriet Tnggurt mul married the Buf falo editor In ISO!. Her father, like the lato Orover Cleveland, was onco sheriff of Erlo county. And thereby hangs a tain. It wns soon after Mr. Mack had acquired Mr. Tnggurt ns a father-in-law, nnd ltoswcll r. Flower wns then governor. A vacancy In thu hheilff's ofilce occurred. Mr. Mnck nnd the Times Mere imt then the potent factors In the Domneratlc pol ltles of western New Ynk that they llim Iss'Ollie since Hut the Tillies proprietor took n trip to Albany ami sow the gocnior, mid Just when the other jMilltlclans were wondering vt ho had the U'st chunee of selection for the vacancy Muck came homo with his father-ln-law's appointment In his pocket This mado tho other Demo, crats of Buffalo sit up nnd take notice. Prominent Club Woman. Mrs. Mark Is n graduate of the Buf falo seminary .tin! a incinlicr of the Oradutites' asHieiatloii, one of the lead lug l ull lire clubs of the city She Is also pminlneiit In the Twentieth ('en tury iluli the mi mt noted woman's cluli of Buffalo and one of tbe most uccesful organizations of the kind In the country.

Mrs t r it 1 1 nnd Mrs. Muck am cUme friends. As for tho filen.Ul.li' between tho Democratic iwiintiicc fot president and the Denn- rall.' chair man. It bus been un unbroken one foi twelve j ears It was In 1hi that Mr Mack' loyalty tu l- tarty Iwtdcr re ceived lis Srst anfl eoveres'. test. He came bom from that convention and went Into seclusion for a day or two to think over tbo situation. Every where was party defection, and papers that had never before balked at a party nomination were Iwlttug the tick et. The Times wns not then In the strong financial situation that It Is now, and to go up ngalnst the prac tically united sentiment of the hus. ness community demanded a courage almost amounting to hardihood. Hut Mr. Mack determined on sticking to bis motto of party loyalty nnd facing the consequences, whatMur they might tie. It has since served him In good stead to 1k nble to point to the fact that be stood by Bryan when hardly another Influential newspaper In his section wns flying the flag of the Ne braska lender And Mr, Bryan has been Just ns loyal to Mr. Mack, Forceful and Original. There was talk among some of the factional opponents of the Buffalo edi tor of retiring him this year from the post of member of the national coin mlttee for New York. Troliahly the New York delegation heard from Mr. Bryan on this point. At any rate, the strength of Mr. Mack with the party's nominee was Influential In the matter, and now, Instead of tsdng deposed and discredited as a political leader, he la In chargo of the campaign which la being waged for the election of Mr. Bryan to the preaMeney. Tbo new chairman is forceful and original. It was lllmrtratod one day when a friend nsked him to define the word "bonanza." Mr. Mnck, who has had some exjicrlciice In mining, wns Teady with a reply. "A hmaiizn,'' said Ih, "Is u hole In the ground owned by a d 1 llnr." In politics and In JoumalNm he fights hard, but ho fights fair Ills op poncut know- where to find him. And, though 1'irrj one recognizes his en thusiasm ns a party man, lie counts among his U-st fi lends mini) who bo long on the other side of the political fence. TREES AS FARM CROP. Many Tracts Whoso Out Usa Would Bft Growing of Forest Tree. In every state of the Union, says a forest aerUcu bulletin, there are many tracts of bo called agricultural land which, owing to their hilly character, poor soil or numerous bowlders, nre not unliable for farming The owners of such tracts nro often at a loss to know what to do with them. WfSi out question the tiest use to which land of this kind can lie put Is to plant It with trees. . One of the funda mental principles of forest economics Is that soli which Is not good enough to make the growing of cereal crops profitable should be devoted to the production of wood crops. This does not mean that trees grow liettcr on poor soil than on fertile soli. They will, of course, grow better on fertile soli. But In proportion to the money Invested better returns are secured from trees planted on tbe less valua ble, land. Most of the cone bearing trees nnd many hard woods as well will thrive In soil of medium fertility. All trees, however, do not thrive on iioor, sandy ridges or on hillsides whero tho soil is thin. Black walnut, hardy catnlpa and white oak for their licst develop ment require a deep, fertile soil, well watered and well drained, nnd It Is not advisable to plant them where these requirements nro not met. An Ohio farmer Is solving the proli lem of what to do with tho wornout farm. lie owns an old homestead of sixty acres, which he la desirous of keeping in the family. He docs not llvo on the place, however, and farm ing has been a losing proposition, no has therefore decided to plant the en tire tract with trees. Tie has already planted 85,000 Norway spruces, set three and one-half . feet apart each way, on an area of about eleven acres. These trees will bo cut&ns they become largo enough for Christmas trees. Chestnut seedlings will be plunted In tho spaces left by tho removal of the spruces, and It Is expected that they will begin to conic In bearing when the Inst Kjiruce Is cut. In addi tion to the spruces, hardy entnlpa, black locust, elm, box elder nnd hyen moro have licon planted. It Is planned to put the entire tjlxty acres In forest within five or six years. The owner Is wise In planting several kinds of trees Instead of confining himself to one species, nis forest will lie pro ducing six or seven kinds of lumlicr, chestnuts and Christmas trees nt the same time. UNIQUE QUAY MEMORIAL Senator's Widow Will Build Home After Plans He Originated. A unique monument to the memory of the lute I'nlted States Senator M. S. Quay has been designed at Pittsburg. A house to cost fKM.iKsJ will lie erected on Kewlckley Heights, the fashionable. Pittsburg suburb, by the widow and duughters of the Into pullilcluti. Senator tjuuy hud long planned such a dwelling and hud conferral with llnll Calne, thu novelist, his warm friend, ns to the naiuo. Calne had del 1. led on 'Ballainona," nnd this will 1k tho name of the house, for whleh Mrs. Quay ami her daughters recently had the plana drawii. Aliout six years ago, while the sen ator and his wlfo were traveling In Italy, thoy met Calne, nnd the three discussed nt length thu house which Quay Intendisl to build when lie re tire. 1 from public life. Tho library was pi. i lined loiiglily by Cnlne for Mr. Quay, and these plans will be followed. An Italian architect has mined for America to design the library Tbo eMerlor of the hoiiso will be UKslelisl after an old Eugllsh castle. Government Balloon House. Tho United States gm eminent fin lshod the great steel balloon house the othor day which It hns been erecting at Fort tlinaha for the use of thu mill tury Imlloons and airships, says an Omaha dispatch.

( II Mm 7mhm CHOICE MISCELLANY Returning to St Pierre. Any ou who has seen tbo pretty villages which hug the haso of tba wrathful Vesuvius cannot bo surprised by tho Information that a town of nearly o.OOO souls has already sprung up where 8t. Pierre once stood. It Is only six years since Price's fires and lava erasisl from existence a city with nearly 80,000 persons. It Is strange how people go back to the old sissies of men despite plasmo or disaster. There are few prettier sights tn Italy than the white homes of happy but fearless people, who dwell all around on the lower slopes of the volcano that destroyed Tompell nnd Herculaqcutn. To forget it at least Ignore a trage dy that happened 1,800 years ago Is not so remarkable, however, as the re building of St. Pierre after a brief six years. Every one rememliers clearly what happened that fatal day In May, 1002, but tbe Islanders nro wandering back to the site of tho old town and digging In tbe ruins and building homes. How long Pel eo will remain at peace no ono can tell. The friends of those who perlrhed by Its fearful upheaval evidently have faith In Its good be havior for ages to come or tbay would not venture to pitch tholr abodes with in rnngp of Its fiery tongue.

Mr. Clarke says that tlHiy ara most vul nerable now and can ba destroyed by simply spraying thaw with boiling wa ter. This kills them Instantly and does not Injure tbe trass In tho least degree. "No scraping off of solid bark should tie dona," says Forester Clarke, "as It removes the tree's winter pro tection nnd Is positively of no use whatever, as the txs'tlcs fly, thu worms crnwi and the pupa or yellow bait formed tioetles seem to bavo a sort of snail power also to get down to tlio ground In enormous numbers sis If not scalded to death nre soon complete lieetles which live throughout the win ter."

The Isioys are of metal, and tt Is proposed to fill them with gas nnd sink them under parts of tbe sub merged boat Tbo surface of tho lake being reached, tho water will be pumped oat of tbe hull and tbo craft raved for further use.

That a pet rubl.lt is a wild animal and Is no one's proissrty and that na ono should bo arrested for taking a rabbit from some one else was the rule laid down by Judge Joslab Cohen In a Pittsburg court In the cuso of Alfred Ohllg, n veterinary surgeon, who was charged with stealing a pot whlto rab bit. Ohllg admitted taking the rabbit, but his attorney pulled a natural his tory to show that a rabbit was a "Po rno nnturae," or a wild nnlmnl, nnd no one's protiorty. "That's right," snld Judge Cohen.
