" The "Truth" is published by the Scranton Truth Publishing company, oi winch hod. IjouU A. Watrog, a candidate for the governorship of Pennsylvania, is president. And the motto of this paper, as shown on the top of its editorial page, is "A Square Deal for All." Whether or not the name "Truth" has been applied to this sheet as an ironical contrast to its real character there is no way of knowing, except by the matter that finds its way into the paper. But of one thing there is a surety the "Truth" is an adopt in the energetic use of the "big stick," and also that its proprietor and editor are not very careful where they strike. Kecently the following bit of malicious defamation appeared editorially in the "Truth." "It is worthy of note that Danville, the town where the Zehnders first learned the steel and iron business, is no longer a factor in the industry. Not a single mill or furnace exists where once there were half a dozen or more prosperous enterprises. The population of Danville has decreased several thousands from what it was at the time of the town's greatest prosper! ty . Iu the early eighties Danville was an important centre of the iron and steel manufacturing industry. The flames from its furnaces lighted up the sky by night and the black smoke darken ed the atmosphere by day. ;Of all the river towns in that section of the State which once were the scene of prosper ous iron and steel industries, Berwick is the only one that has benefited by the great movement oi. consolidation which has since been effected in this branch of the manufacturing business. The immense plant of the American Car and Foundry company, which was established on the foundation of the old Jackson & Wood in car shops, has made Berwick one of the most prosperous towns in the State. It was from this manufacturing establishment that Charles M. Zehndor came to Scrantn to take charge of the Dickson Manu facturing company. ' ' It is, however, interesting to note that there is another newspaper in Scranton called the "Times," that called the "Truth" its right name the '.'Liar" in the following editori al comment : A Scranton newspaier, in an article yesterday, in commenting upon Dan ville, said the Bteel and iron business is no longer a factor in the town "Not a single mill or furnace exists where once there were half a dozen or more prosperous enterprises. The population of Danville has decreased several thousands from what it was at the time of the town's greatest prosperity. " The fact is, the Reading company has a rolling mill in operation employing one thousand men, and an- j other of the largest and oldest rolling mills has been in operation continuously, and the population is constantly on the increase. ' ' RUNAWAY COLLIDES WITH AWNING Lively Dash Up Mill t Street Caused Ex . citement Yesterday Afternoon. A team of horses in a lively dasli that ended in the demolishing of an awning pole in front of Jacobs' unner store caused considerable excitement on Mill street yesterday afternoon about 5 o'clock. The horses, which belong to Q. W. Hoke, had been in use, during the af ternoon, at a funeral, and were being driven, without a vehicle, across the j tow path from Ferry to Mill by Wil fred Hullihen, when the beginning of the trouble occurred. The animals were evidently in a hurry to get back to the stable. When thev not to Mill streeftlie driver lost control of the animals aud they dashed off up the street at a wild pace. The Adams express wagon was stand ing, backed to the curb, in front of the express office, and the horses swerving to keep away from this, one of the team collided with the wooden post that supports the awning in front of Jacobs' store. The post was broken off, the horse thrown off his feet and the team captured. THE DANVILLE QUOIT CLUB MANY FARHfciRS OF THIS STATE Repairs Completed on the Grounds and First Game Was Played Yesterday. The Danville quoit club, of which David D.

Clay county was visited by a destructive cyclone about 6:80 o'olock last night, the fury of which was expend ed on the little town of Bellevue. where thirteen people were killed and quite a number injured. Tiie town was completely destroyed by the storm and fire which broke out immediately afterwards, with the exception of three houses. Further loss of life was prevented by people generally taking to storm houses. Stoneburg. four miles from Bellevue, was also the scene of much damage. PROMPT RELIEF GIVEN. The Forth Worth and Denver rail way ran a special train out of this city, carrying relief to the sufferers and prompt relief measures have been extended from Bowie and other places. The path of the storm was one mile wide and eight miles long. The loss of property is estimated at $175,000. TOWN A COMPLETE WRECK. Reports from Bellevue this morning say the town is a complete wreck and the scene one of awful desolation. The remains of two hundred iiomes are still burning and the people are overwhelmed with the catastrophe that has overtaken them. An appeal for aid had been issued Are Directly Interested in the Passage of Three Pleasures , Now Before Congress CHAMBERSBURG, April 27. Be lieving rue passage ot tnree measures important to the 55,000 farmers of Pennsylvania to be in doubt? and for the purpose of urgiug the members of the 600 granges throughout tiie state to petition their congressmen to support such measures, Grange Master W. F. Hill has sent notices to each granger to take action on the railroad rate bill, the Heyburn pure food bill and the free alcohol bill. Master Hill says : "Each grange will be asked to petition the congressmen to help pass the bills." The state grange legislative committee, composed of Master Hill, Assemblyman W. T. Creasy and E. B. Dorsett, have been in correspondence and have decided to warn each grange that the bills are in danger. INDORSES ROOSEVELT'S STAND. The notices set fortli that the state I grange is in accord with President Roosevelt's position on the rate mea sure. The congressmen will be told that agriculture furnishes a larger proportiou of freight for transporta tion over the railroads than does any other industry, and that the discrimi nation practiced by railroad corpora tions results to the disadvantage of the farmer, both as a producer and consumer of the transported goods. Uonoerning the Heyburn bill, the proclamation of the committee sets fortli : For years the nefarions trickster and adulterator of food products lias plied his nefarious traffic, and there has been no adequate legislation to stay his avarice or to protect the people. Such legislation is urgently demanded at this time. " Concerning the free alcohol bill, the committee says there is urgent neces- j sity for the enactment of such legisla tion as will enable the farmers to use : untaxed dpnatnrid plnohol as motor fuel in farm engines and for heating. lighting and cooking purposes. Engineer Good's Body Blown Into Susquehanna River. HARRISBURG, April 27.

Secretary Kalbfus, of the Commis sion, will go to New Castle today to investigate the death of Honk, and will offer a reward of five hundred dollars for the arrest and conviction of his murderers. Dr. Kalbfus said yesterday that he had repeatedly warn ed Houk not to go among the foreign ers unless accompanied by another warden, but he was very brave and said he had no fear. When murdered, Houk was waiting trial for assault and battery preferred by an Itailan whom lie had to handcuff when arresting him for violating the game laws. The Wild Gaoae Bean. To the lumbermen of Maine are due the discovery and production of the now tamouse goose bean. The real name of the man who planted the first crop of this vegetable is not known, but there are two rivals for the honor, and omh has a most plausible version of hit discovery of the beau. John Goddard, afterward colonel in the civil war, told this story of how the bean was first found and grown by him: Ilo had charge of a gang of lumber- mcu during the spring of 1840. The soft, slump?- suow made the roads im passable for a "tote team," and the mee had born without fresh meat for niore than a week. Colonel Goddard gave luo cook orders tm take his gun and go out to see if he could get a shot at the wild geese wh'.ch were flying north in great flocks. The cook v;4s luoky enough to briug back several birds for supper. When he was dressing them be noticed from the lack of food lh their crops that they had been on short rations during their Journey north ward. In the crop of one young gan-der were three beans, which Goddard saved and planted in his garden that ummer. From these three beans he hurvested about two quarts of beans, and from that first crop came the supply which has since gladdened the hearts of lumbermen throughout the country. Two Conferences. Next year's session of the Central Pennsylvania Methodist Episcopal con ference will be held in Tyrone, the five presiding elders having decided unanimously to accept the invitation of the First church of that place, which entertained the conference this year. Tyrone Methodists will break all records as conference hosts, entertaining the body two years in succession. Washery Coal for Sale. We have just received a consignment of extra large No. 6 coal. Come and inspect it while it lasts. A. C. AMESBURY. SHAD SCARCE. The high winds and stormy weather have interfered considerably with shad fishing. There has been a scarcity of the toothsome fish in the local market during the week past aud the price has risen considerably. mm EGGS CHEAP. Eggs, which took a drofl at Easter, still remain cheap. The prevailing price soems to be about fourteen cents per dozen. At the same time it is not to be supposed that the hens are neglecting their duty, by which it is understood that a large number of eggs are required for hatching purposes. MRS. CROM1S BREAKS HERARfl A Budget of Interesting News . From Washlngtonville. Mrs. Ambrose Cromis, who with her husband lives on Henry Cooper's farm near Washingtonville, had the misfortune to break her arm yesterday afternoon. She was leaving the house aud had just stepped off the porch when her foot slipped, causing her to fall. To save herself she threw out her arm. which was struck in such a way as to fracture the bone just above the wrist. She was at the house alone, with her little son, her husband being employ ed iu the field. The latter, however,' was finally apprised of what had oc curred and he summoned Dr. Snyder of Washingtonville, who set the brok en bone. Mrs. Ida Bogert of our town is mak ing garden.

The stock and fixtures of the livery stable, late of John Fenstermacher, deceased, will be sold in bulk by the undersigned. Ihis is a good business opportunity for any one desiring to enter the livery business. ALICE FENSTERMACHER, Sunbury, Penna. Walter Shipman. Atty. , April 25th., 1906. ' OXFOEODS T HERE are two ways of "skimping" the cost of a suit due way is to make ud good fabrics with poor tailoring T" .ther way is to take a second rate cloth and wast good tailoring on it. The material in the badly, made garment does last, but the shape is lost so qnick-ly that it isn't presentable within a month. The shapeliness in the second sort of clothes would stay if the fabric didn't go all to pieces after a few weeks of service. "Om CLOTHES" possess the good features of both these sorts ot tailoring.and none of the drawbacks. They're built well and made of solid, substantial goods, cut right lined right and Btyled right. They fit and stay fit. They cost very little and please very much. $8.0Q TO $20. NEWMAN 222 MILL ST., Half Block from the Post Office. For Associate Judge.
