   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - January 31, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                EIGHTH YEAH-NO. 283. LOCK HAVEN, PA., FRIDAY, JANU AltY 31. 1890. PBICE-TWO CENTS. EVENING EXPRESS KINSIOK RKOTHEKS---PPBWSHEB8 CURRENT COMMENT. Cestke county ta haviuj? au epidemic of murder which is as surprising aa it is disgraceful. At Just ex-Prehidout Cleveland has shaken the dust of Buffalo from his feet and taken up his residence in New York permanently. TnEitE is no longer any doubt that Ex-Goveruor Pattison will take the Democratic nomination for Governor if it is tendered to him. President Roberts, of the Pennsylvania railroad, speaks hopefully of railroad affairs for the coming year. He ought to know, for he successfully manages the greatest railroad in the world. Chicago will not down. The executive committee of the world's fair has decided to increase the $5,000,000 contribution for the fair to $10,000,000, and so notified the committee of "projectors" in Washing' ton. DEMOCRATS WILD AGAIN Speaker Eeed Denounced and Hissed by the Minority. THOMAS BEAVEK'S OIFT. A PERFECT BEDLAM 15 THE HOUSE The Scenes of Uproar and Confusion, Vol lowinc the Efforts of the Democrat Minority, Repeated During Yesterday Afternoon But the Firmness of the Speaker Brings Order Oat of Cb*o�. The directors of public schools in Col umbia have notified the teachers of the schools that they will not be permitted to take up a collection from the children to erect a monument to the late Dr. Iligbee on the Capitol grounds. General Master Workman Powder-ly announces that he would not be a candidate on the Democratic nomination for Governor. This will be a great relief to William A.. Wallace, Chaancey Forward Black and-and-and some more people, Some good friends of Mrs. Parnell ought to take that good but complaining Did lady iu charge. She is again reported as starving and freezing, although abundant as sistance was rendered her a month ago. Why she should lack food and go without a fire when she owns a fine farm of 200 acres is not easy to understand. Evidently this venerable lady is not in a condition to look aftor her own affairs. The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has declared that a railroad is privileged to extract an extra rate of fare on its cars from those who have not provided them selves with tickets, when it offers to return the extra fare at the ticket office. This course is not declared to be a hardship on the traveling public, while it is necessary to the convenience and security of the companies. There are some things current in the land which Bhculd be checked. One is that Methusaleh of chestnuts, pointing a gun, pulling the trigger, killing or wound ing some, and not knowing it was loaded In this state it is a penal offense to point any fire arm at another. But such statutes seldom, if ever, amount to anything. Nobody would enforce such a law save for revenge, and bo the good old chestnut -"didn't know it was loaded"-will last till men are wise enough not to blow out the gas. The Philadelphia Press says: There are vague rumors to the effect that Hon. Wm. L. Scott ib preparing to re-enter politics again as a supporter of Hon. Robert E. Pattison as a candidate for Governor. In the caso of bis doing so the event would be one of the most interesting in what seems likely to be an immensely interesting campaign. The spectacle of Colonel Scott introducing Brother Pattison as the anti-monopoly candidate for Governor would be tremendously edifying to the workingmen, and would make the marines simply laugh their teeth loose. Benevolent Women, There is no city of the same size that can boast of more philanthropic and benevolent women than Look Haven. Going about on errands of mercy, cheering the sick and poor, and briehtening many a life by their generous benevolence. There is an old trueism that "one half the world does not know bow the other half lives." Pitiful stories could these ladies tell of the houses they visit, of the want, Bickness and suffering. The "bread winners" of the family often prostrated for weeks, and in some oases for months, leaves many households in dire straits for the necessaries of life. It is at such a time that a visit from these benevolent ladies seems like that of good angels to those in distress. May they continne in their noble work and never grow disheartened. There are many sad hearts to cheer and homes to brigbten in these times. Washington, Jan. 30.-At the afternoon session of the House McKinley attempted to proceed, but Springer was not to be silenced, and amid much confusion both gentlemen addressed the Chair, Springer's persistency finally securing him the floor. He argued his right to move a correction of the journal, but the Speaker said it was a question of recognition and be bad already recognized McKinley, who proceeded with bis argument, supporting the Speaker's decision. "The Constitution," he said, "did not declare that the majority of members who answered to their names should constitute a quorum. It said that the majority of those present constituted m quorum, and certainly the members who refused to answer to their names were present, no one would deny that." carlisle's  suggestion. Carlisle suggested that the constitution provided that when the President vetoed a measure it should not become a law unless repassed by a two-thirds rote. He understood the gentlemen to contend that if 165 members were present, any part of that number voting might pass the bill, the others remaining silent. McKinley replied that he was not dis cussing what the House could not do on a Presidential veto; that was a separate constitutional provision. Carlisle retorted that no bigger quorum was required than when any other measure was before the house. McKinley continuing, said the present movement was the attempt of the minority to rule, and he declared in closing, amid applause, that the Republicans intended to settle the question of whether a constitutional majority of the House shall do the business of the House, Turner, of Georgia, argued earnestly for the adoption of the rules before the House proceeded to decide the seventeen election cases now pending. Butterworth, of Ohio, followed, endors-ng the Speaker's decision, and at the close of his ad drees, a motion to lay yesterday's appeal on the table was mado by McKinley. A motion to adjourn was thereupon (at 5 o'clock) made by Springer, and was voted down, yeas 245, nays 161. a republican triumph. Then the vote proceeded on McKinley'a motion. No Democrat responded, and most of them left their seats. The Speaker, however, noted down the names of the Democrats present and not voting. The vote resulted, ayes, 1G2; nays, none, but the Speaker directed the clerk to record the names of those present and not voting, and declared the motion to lay the motion on the table carried. There were loud and indignant shouts of protest from the Democratic side, but they were without avail. Then McKinley made a niotioa to adjourn which was carried, and the House adjourned till to-morrow, the Republicans being jubilant at their triumph, and the Democrats correspondingly depressed. in the  senate. The Senate to-day passed the bill requiring the Superintendent of the Census to ascertain the number of persons who own their farms, and those who rent, and to obtain information as to mortgages thereon. Senators Vance and Hampton addressed the Senate on Berry's bill providing (or the emigration of negroes from the South. Both commented severely on Ingall's re-reut speech. The bill went over without action and the Senate adjourned until Monday. Ue  Adda   �  Library   to   His   LewUburg Church Memorial. Hon. Thomas Beaver, of Danville, who is building a $125,000 church at Lewis burg, as a memorial to his father, who was a leading Methodist Episcopal minister half a century ago, yesterday notified Rev, David H.

The Centre County Commissiouorrf have borrowed tho Lycoming county gallows, for tho execution of Hopkins, February 20th. Jacob Ilartmnn will accompany the gallows to Bellefonte and superintend the erection of it. an eccentric Irishman, who at the age of 80 married Mary Minnock, a 20 year-uld girl. Miles and Giles Torpy wero the result of this union. Old Mr. Torpy lived to be 03 years old and survived his youa wife five years. The twins grow up to bo known as the "Contrary Torpys." Miles had a crippled left foot and a cast in bis loft eyo. Giles1 right foot was crippled and his right eye had the cast that marked his brother left. Giles had an extra finger on his left hand and Giles had one on his ri^ht hand Miles had an unusually stubborn impediment in his speech, while Giles was a most glib and rapid talker. Food that one liked the other did not, and vice versa The twins were comfortably well off1 their father having been a thrifty farmer. Giles became a farmer. Miles learned the carpenter's trade and never ownod any more ground than was required for his bouse to stand on. Miles was of a religious turn, and became a dovout Methodist Giles was and is an agnostic. Giles married a girl muot younger than himself, while Miles chose for his wife a widow who was ten years his senior.  Miles was strong Democrat. Giles as strong Republican. Once Giles was tho candi date of his party for justice of tho peace _ and Miles ran against him on tho Demo cratio ticket, but as the town was Repub-iean ho was defeated, Miles Torpy was married first.   A year afterward his wife gave birth to boy twins Giles Torpy was married a few months after his brother.   His first born was irl. Miles' wife presented him with a girl baby when tho twins were two years old, and some time afterward Giles was made the father of twins. Neither sot of twius havo ever manifested any of tho eccentricities of their fathers. In spite of this antagonism in tastes and inclination on the part uf Miles aud (iiiwa Torpy, thoy and their families were always on the best of terms. A Picture aa Impre^wive aa tho Angelus. Miller's world famous picture "L'An-gelus" cost $110,000. It's beauty of color, devotion, aud music all seem to be clearly portrayed, and thousands Hock to admire and study tho artist's tine work. Some weeks since a picture was seen on our streets, which, if it could havo been transferred to canvass with all tho feeling and moaning exhibited, would bo a fitting companion piece to tho "Angelus." An eldorly lady, who had beou ilia long time, one Sabbath morning a few weeks since wended her way to the dear old church which she loved so devotedly, but after a short time became sick and had to turn her steps homeward. After she had gone short distanco, she turned and looked at tbo sacred edifice, aud to somo friends athered at the door, waved a tearful, pathetic farewell. It seemed as if tho action and expression wero prophetic, as it was her farewell sight of tho church and friends. Never again was she permitted to worship in the earthly courts. She has passed into *'tho beyond." A few days ago her funeral services wero read in tho same church, and the body was borno from thence to the cemetery. Tho devotion to the church-home and the leave-taking bring to mind tho lines, "The air is full of fare wo! Is to thodyiug," and over and over igain pictures can be seen on our streets that need only the soul and peucil of tho artist to immortalise them. Our lives are so busy and full of ca.ro that wo do not take timo to see tho pictures about us.
