Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - January 13, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania EIGHTH YEAK-NO. 2(J7 I^OGK HAVEN. PA., MONDAY, JAN U Alt Y FBICJE-TWO CENTS. EVENING EXPRESS K1NSLOE ItKOTHEKS---PUBLISHERS THE l'KOroSEI* Mll>I>LK DISTRICT. Congressman McCorniick's bill to create a new Federal judicial district iu this State, to bo called the Middle district, bas been received with general approbation throughout the cooties concerned. Some errors have occurred in some of the newspaper statements, however. The counties named in the bill to constitute the now district are Lackawanna, Wyoming, Bradford, Tioga, Potter, Cameron, Clinton, Lycoming, Centre, Union, Snyder, Mifflin, Juniata, Northumberland, Montour, Columbia, Sullivan, Luzerne, Dauphin,Perry, Huntingdon,Fulton, Franklin, Adams, York, Cumberland, Lebanon and Clearfield. Here are twenty-eight counties, more than one-third the whole number in the State, and having quite one-third of the total population, with great business and material interests. It is provided that courts shall bo held at Scran ton beginning in March and September; at Williamsport, beginning in January and Juno, and at Harrisburg, beginning in May and October of each year, to contiuuo for such length of time as the judges Bhall determine. There will soon be convenient public buildings finished at Saranton and Williamsport, and Harris-risburg has one already. These are the available points of the district for the courts. A HURRICANE IN THE WEST St. Louis Experiences a Destructive Death' Dealing Cyclone. MY PEESOKS LOSE THEIR. LIVES CURRENT COMMENT. The death of Judge Kelley leaves William McKinley the foremost champion of Protection in the halls of Congress. By the way, the usual jokes about the "beautiful snow" Beems to have joined the late Mr. MoGinty and gone to the bottom of the sea. England pays in taxes $20 per head. The "United States pay 12.50. England is free trade; the United States are protection. The free trade mugwumps may find trouble in explaining this difference. We agree with the JVwo Bra, that the American people are fast coming to the opinion that Miss Gwendoline Caldwell ought to do one of the three things: Sho ought either to many Prince Murat, stop courting him through the newspapers, or come home, and they don't care a cent which of the three she does. Ik regard to the report that Mr. Cleveland got up and gave his seat ia a crowded elevated railroad car to a shop girl, the Chicago Heies says that no surprise need ba excited. Mr. Cleveland iB a very polite man. One day last spring he got up and gave his seat at Washington to an elderly gentleman from Indiana. The Pottsville Miners' Journal asks Senator Quay to make a declaration of his choice for Governor. The common understanding is that he prefers the people shall do that for themselves. The man who can unite the party, give vitality to the whole campaign and assure success from the beginning is the man who is wanted. Wilkes bar he is a remarkable town in some respects. It not only has a beautiful free public library, generously endowed, hut it has a dog catcher who actually catches dogs, and who during the past year not only "decimated"- that's the word the report uses-the howling yelping curs, but turned into the city treasury $1,250 in fees. What do you think of that, ye wise fathers? The Wine and Spirit Gazette of New York charges that the police captains of that city get more mocey in blackmaiiing the liquor dealers than they do as salary, and not one of them would resign if their entire salary was taken from them. This ia a grave charge, but notwithstanding its gravity, it is doubtless true, ana?the police captains will take no further notice of it possibly than to increase their levy. The coming municipal election is an important one to every citizen, and none but good men should be nominated for the several offices. Upon the wisdom and judgment of the persons chosen for councilman, school directors and the minor offices our prosperity and growth as a city largely depend. Attend the primaries of your party, whether you are a Republican or a Democrat. See that the best men of your ward are put on the ticket, and work to have them elected. Philadelphia, according to the Record, eats in the course of the year 200,000,000 eggs, of which seven-eighths come from Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota and Nebraska, packed in refrigerator cars holding 144,-000 each. Notwithstanding this brain food, Philadelphia is no better or wiser than other cities; but still the question arises, why cannot the farmers in the East pay more attention to the raising or dropping of eggs? We import egse in immense quantities and yet pay little attention to the development of home products. Farmers, keep an eye on the hen? j ISiE Buildings Oo Down Before the Terr)He BltMt-Church Steeples Topple Over and Wires Prostrated-An Illinois Town AIho Suffers From the Storm-A Wide Kwnth of Desolation. St. Louis, Jan. 12.-This afternoon a hurricane struck the city, unrooting houses, tearing out trees by the roots, blowing steeples off churches, leveling telegraph poles and doing considerable damage generally. All the Eastern tele graph wires centering at East St. Louit are blown down, and rumor comes from the littlo towu of Venice, three miles North of East St. Louis that several houses were destroyed there and three or four persons were killed, but this lacks confirmation. 10:30 p. m.-At this hour* it has been ascertained that several lives were lost during this afternoon's storm. Advices from the surrounding country aro delayed by the telegraphic service being crippled hy the storm. the track of tiie storm. The cyclone entered the city in its full force at Twenty-third street and Chauteau avenue, passing Northwest until it reached Seventeenth and Olive streets, where it swerved, taking a direct Easterly course to Fourteenth, and then again turned to the Northeast leaving the city and striking the river just North of the street. The only announcement of the approach and progress of the storm was by a dull, sullen roar, quickly followed by torrents of rain, which in turn was succeeded by sleet, and before the victims could realize what bad happened the storm had swept by and on. In addition to the dozens of dwellings and stores more or less wrecked, the following big buildings were damaged: BIG BUILDINGS DAMAGE!?. The Anchor Mills, Goodwin Candle Factory, Pullman's Shops, Van Urock'B Furniture Factory, Kingslaud & Fereu-kou Futiu Implement Works, Missouri Pacific Hospital, Hodge school, German Evangelical Church, Second Presbyterian Church and others yet to be heard from. Mrs. Charles Miller, who resides with her husband at Twentieth and Eugenia streets, was sitting in a rocking chair with her baby in her arms when the roof was lifted from her house. She rushed to the window and just then the wall gave iu and Mrs. Miller and her baby were buried under the debris. The babe miraculously escaped without a scratch, but the mother as badly hurt and may not recover. THE LIST of VICTIMS. The list of victims by the storm secured up to this hour (0:30 p. m.) are as follows: Dead: Mrs. Maggie Connors, Bernard McConnell, Joe Weaver, aged 9. Injured: Theresa Weaver, aged G. Both legs broken, will probably die. Sirs. Charles Miller, badly cut and bruised; seriously injured. Annie Connors, Maggie Connors, Francis Connors. A messonger just arrived from tho East side of the river says that tho storm iu 8t. Clair county, Illinois, was unusually severe, AT OTIIEIl POINTS. Brooklyn, a village of about 000 people, seems to have a uttered the most, as the damage at East St. Louis and at Venice was largely couiined to railroad property and small dwellings and telegraph and telephone poles. At Brooklyn, though several persons wereinjured, no lives were lost. A number of dwellings are in ruins, the Baptist church is entirely demolished and the M. E. church, a frame building, unroofed and turned clear around on its foundation. At Belleville, Illinois, several public buildings were unroofed, but no one is reported injured. a taw to enforce attoin'auce should ho passed without delay." A nut loss inler-uatinj; article is "A Field for Rich Women," by F run cos A. Shaw. Tho writer, in speaking of tho many charitable institutions founded and carried on by Mis. Q'liucy A. Shaw, of Boston, uses this beautiful sentiment: "If all endowed with wealth used the gifts of fortune as wisely as she, the problems uow agitating society aud threatening to uudermiue out-social system, would he easily solved, the great gulf botweeu tho rich and poor would be narrower, aud iu place of the present rancors and jealousies, a feeling of mutual respect and good will would exist.

Wheelock, of the city hat store, died at her late resideuco, No. 919 Vine street, yesterday at 1:30 o'clock in tho afternoon. Notice of tho funeral will be given later.

They will put on the first co<at of plaster as soon as the work of lathing is finished. The Distin works expect to start op today. Everything is now in readiness to begin operations. The engine was starred one day last week and the machinery was found to be in good running ordor aud no trouble is expected when tho machinery is set tn motion this morning. j Fell Twenty Feet. David Newcomer, who resides near Linden, says tho Williamsport Republican, met with a thrilling experience last Fri-lay forenoon, nu.nnv.Iy escaping fatal injury. I Its was at work about tho barn aud had guno into the loft, to throw down hay, when in some unaccountable manner ho slipped aud fell through the opening by which hay is thrown to tho iloor below. Tho unfortunate man fell a distance of about twenty feot, striking tho floor with great force, where he was found a few moments later in an unconscious condition. He was carried to the house and a physician summoned, tho injured man remaining in a comatose state uutil the arrival of the latter. Upon examination it was found that no bones had been broken, only a severe shock having been received. Medicine given him restored consciousness, and he will likely bo all right again iu a few days.

From tbe Kenovo News. State Koad Commissioner James L. Bar-clay,of Horton township, Cameron oounty, met with an accident on Monday last which resulted in his death on Thursday.

While ou the cars they were bumped together, the sudden jar throw-tug the man's leg between the bumpers.

Sho was going out to feed the cows, when sho slipped and fell, breaking her left arm just above the wrist. Dr. Fullmer, of this place, was called and reduced tbe fracture. Mrs. Birney is a woman CO years of ago and no doubt on that accouut hor injury will not heal as rapidly as would be tho case iu a younger person. Ad.im Ivohler died at his homo on 13th street at 8.30 o'clock Saturday morning. Some time ago ho was taken ill with la grippe, which was the immediate cause of domise. Deceased was about 40 years old aud leaves a wife and three children to mourn the loss of a husbaud aud father. The funeral arrangements have not yet been math.'. :ihtiotl*iK IVlAtch.

Miss Neilson aud Mr. Waite received a regular ovation and the remainder of the company came iu tor a liberal share of applause. Come again is the siucere wish of the thousands who have been entertained by this organization during their two weeks' engagement. The Farmers* Institute. The General Convention and Farmers' Institute to be held at Mill Hali this week, promises to be the most interesting of any ever hold in the county. A special feature will be the singing of Mr. A. C. Sissou, of La Plume, Lackawanna county. The talks to farmers by Mr. Torry will be practical and interesting. Every farmer in tho county should attend tie Institute, which commences Wednesday, January 15th, and coutiunes 1 ltiihmeo have bought four mills, which will have au output of 100 tons of news print per day, about three times as much as auy oilier one concern or establishment in the country. Tho Hemingtou Paper Company is another of tho mills bought up, aud Mr. Keiniugtou is uow in London signing the papers. Warn or Miller's sale puts hiui in command of about a million dollars of ready money, which means that various people who have turned up their nosed at him because they thought he was outside the breastworks politically will uow take off their ha'.s to him because of his financial success. Tbe secret of this big paper deal, in which tho Englishmen have invested $5,000,000 to $0,000,000, i* the sulphite wood pulp fibre process. It is patented and will be held by tbe syndicate. The sulphites consumed have been heretofore brought from Germany, but it is tbe intention of tbe syndicate to establish sulphite factories iu this country aud make their own material. This would give the in all the possible profits in paper manufacture. While I was talking with the gentleman who gave mo this information I was : introduced to George Taylor, a Loudoa man, who has been actively engaged iu buying up Ameiicau breweries. About the first thing he asked me was whether this governmeut was sure to continue the present policy of protection. When I had replied affirmatively I inquired the reason of bis inquiry. "I am feeling the way for English capital," he replied. "It you could say to mo today that you could insure a continuance of the protective tariff policy for ten years I would guarantee you an investment of a hundred millions of English money in this couutry inside of uiuety days. I am told that, piuc forests aud Southern railroads aro becoming objects of cjusid-eration witii these Eue.Ii.sb-Aniericau syndicates and that several big deals are on.

Washington, Jan. 12.-The credentials of tho four Senators elected by tbe rival Legislatures of Montana, aro expected to bo laid before the Senate Ibis week. Objections will bo mado to seating either the Republican or Democratic contestants pcuding au investigation and report upon thoir olaims by the Committee on Privileges and Elections. In the absence of Senator Hoar, Chairman of that committee, no one is authorized to speak concerning the probable scopo of the investigation that will be made. Senators Piatt aud Seller, will, it la understood, make an attempt this week to have tho Senate take up the resolution providing for the consideration of all the executive nominations in open session. Tho Committee on Territories, will, however, hear representatives of Idaho, and tho Mormons who oppose the bill to admit that territory as a State, because the proposed constitution excludes Mormons from citizenship. If the Committee decides that the objections of the Mormons are not well founded, the bills for tho admission of Idaho and Wyom'ng will be reported favorably at once. TdE fight on THE RULES. Indications are that the long expaoted code of uow rules will bo reported to the House from the Committee on Rules this week. The members of the minority are generally conversant with the changes in tho old code that is iu contemplation, aud arc preparing themselves for a vigorous attack upon the committee's report, which as they understand, proposes to seriously curtail their power to affect legislation. Gos.-Jp iu Harrisburg Telegraph, A woman writing says: "I am tired of a woman who cultivates her brain at the expense of hor heart." Shake." We are with you. Thu woman who cultivates her brain at the expense of her heart is one of those cold blooded creatures "who never had a youth, who never had any fun, who never seen a streak of sunshine, who never patted a kid on tho check or said a kind word to a child-a woman who cultivates her brain at the expense of her heart perspires iec water when the thermometer is 104 degrees iu the shade. And, in tbe strong but expressive language of the genua tough, don't you forget it. The same woman also writes: *'I am tired of men who don't take care of women." So are we. Not only tired, but weary clcau through. When a man ceases to take care of a woman he is lost. His self-respect is lost. His love for his mother, his sisters, cousins and aunts is lost. The deference duo the weaker sex to him ia a stranger. The shielding arm that 6hould be outstretched iu her defense and on her behalf is a lim, feeble, muscleless thing. When a man doesu'ttako care of women he forgets that 'way back-long, long ago- when ho wae a weak, helpless, mewling and maowiug littlo thing, the tender hand of a mother cared for hiui through day aud night, tho love light in a mother's eyes grew all tho brighter for the pride she had in him and the care she took of him, ho forgets-well, ho forgets pretty much everything that could make a man jf him, Iu short wheu mau doesn't take caro of womcu he ceases to be a man. There aro a heap more things that could be said ou this subject, but this is enough fur one seance. A MOH AT LISBON. Tho British Leuuttou Attacked uud thn Windows Smuiiliert. LisnoN, Jan. 12.-The Cabinet council met last evening and sat until one o'clock this morning. It was decided to yield to Lord Salisbury's order for a withdrawal of tbe Portuguese forces from the Sbire District and Mash on aland.

The palico were powerless to control them. They then broke tbe windows of the residences of the various members of the ministry, after which they dispersed. It is rumored that Senor Gomez, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, will resign. RELEA8E1* ON BAIL. The King Stilt Live J.

To-night Judge Power, who bad been sent for, made hiB appearance at the station house and took bail in tbe sum of $2,000 for the Major. Captain Conner, of the St. James Hotel, became bondsman for Major Clark, and the latter was then released from custody. He will appear when tho ease is called in court to-morrow morning. Never Forget That the fairest flowers fade the soonest. That knowledge loaves no room for changes. That pride is never so offensive as when in chains. That when men are lonely they stoop to any companionship. That the darkest clouds often contain the most fruitful showers. That the pure worship of a pure heart is an inspiration and a song. That there may be loyalty without love, but nevorlove without loyalty. That a golden key will often find the way to unlock many a secret drawer. That death is a Bleeplosa messenger, and life a wakeful handmaid of creation. That the finest feeling, velvety paws of a kitten often cover tbe sharpest claws. That "doing as well as you know bow*' is all righMf you always know how to do well. That those who aro honest and earnest in thoir honesty have no need to proclaim the fact. That it may be well to test tbe condition of a cat's claws before stroking its fur the wrong way. That it is often more difficult to obliterate traces of spilled ink than drops of spilled blood. A Destructive Blaze. Wilkes Bakre, Jan 12.-Fire broke out early this morning in Druttinger's tailor shop, Luzerne Borough, and spread rapidly to the surrounding buildings. The following were destroyed ; J. DiuUiugei'a merchant tailor shop* James Hughes' boot and shoe store and grocery store; Dr. Weidaw's dwelling; Dr. W. W. Gruver's durg store; M. M.
