A WASHINGTON SENSATION An Ex-Congressman Shot in thu Head by a Newspaper Correspondent. THE WOUND NOT A FATAL ONE The Republican candidates tor Governor are not ttayiug at homo this year waiting for thy nomination to come to them, but arc canvassing the State for the purpi.-se of securing delegates. The able Democrat iT! statesmen who were recently proclaiming their intenlion to carry Speaker Reed's ruling to the Supreme Court scum to have changed their minds in the meantime. The Senate is onco in on.' discussing tbe methods by which the seciets of the executive sesMons leak out aud how the evil can be prevented. The easiest and quickest way to s >\. e this knotty problem is to abandon its secret sessions altogether. Evaxi'JELIST Moony is again at woik in !NeW York. Cruwds are turned away fruni the church in which he is preaching, and twenty thousand tickets were- taken in one day for the services over which he presides. Tbe power and inllucuce of this self-respecting preacher grow with service; and they stand in strong coutrast with Lhe temporary notoriety of sensation al mountebanks like Sam Jones. Aijol'T forty years ag> this oouutry was rilled with wild excitement over the tour and the speeches of Louis Kossuth, the famous Hungarian soldier and patriot. Since that time he had dropped out of sight. Yet this sturdy patriot, at the great aye of eighty-eight, is still living in the city of Turin, earning his living with hie pen and taking as much interest in the political siluatiou as when he *"as Governor of Hungaiy. Tins is the Exs'iiF,?;'- eigh'h biithday and it begins its ninth year with brighter prospects and more vigorous than ever. Eight years have brought many changes to Lock Haven, and to-day it is one of the most progressive little cities in the State. The ExritLss has faithfully endeavored to aid in this progress iu every way possible, and looks back over the past eight years with some pride at the part it has taken in helping to build up the industrial interests of the town. An energetic local newspaper is of great value to any community, and every progressive town in the state now has its daily newspaper. A l)i>g'# Long Swim. .John McNally came over to the city yesterday from Lockport followed by his big Newfoundland dog. The dog missed his master in some way when the latter crossed the bridge on his return home, and swam the river. The big shaggy coated canine entered tin water boldly aud when half way across encountered the boom logB which he climbed over aud contiuued swiining until ho reached the Lockport shore. The water iu the river is high but the dog lauded on the opposite shore only a short distance further down the stream thau when he started. A Warm January. The monthly weather IlccUir. says the mean temperature for January 1890 in this State was :�T 7, which is about 11 above tho normal, and was the warmest January siuco 1S30. The prevailing wind was from tho west and northwest. The weather throughout the month was favorable for outdoor pursuits, and building operations were scarcely interrupted on account of cold. Krilertttiniim a Club. William 1J. H.iuna who was married ou Thursday, eiitci tain men t tho Grindstone Club of which he is a member, at the Opera House n.s'.aurant last night.

Tho first timber rait to arrive this; season came lioating down the poo! of tho dam yesterday afternoon and was tied up at tho Lockport shore until this morning. The raft was uf round timber and came from Keating. This morning it was run through the seh.ito and sent on to Wil-liamsport. KreuliuK a Monument. J. R.

The Victim in Mr. Tanlbe**. of Ktmtnckey. who J'ulled the Correspondent's Now and Got :i Bullet In His Head-The A*ailnat Arrested and Locked Up -Great Kxcite-nient tn Con crept*. Washington, Feb. 2S. -Ex Congressman Tan 1 bee, of Kentucky, was shot through tho head this afternoon by Charles Kincaid, correspondent of the Louisville 2'imiis. Both men are Kentuek-iaus, and the trouble was caused by the ex-Congressman pulling tho oorrespou dent's uose for publishing certaiu statements iu regard to him. The shooting occurred just outside the Capitol, near tho southeastern entrance to the building. Kincaid is a slight built, inoffensive looking man of about thirty-tivo years of age. lie was formerly a judge- iu one of the Louisville courts, aud his family is one of the best kuowu in Kentucky, lie has a wide acquaintance in social circles here, and has spent cousiderablo of his time in attending receptions, parties and other society events. ll A call of the House had just been ordered shortly after noon to-day when the men met for tho first time. Tho trouble bo-tweou them originated about a yeai aud a half ago in a publication by the correspondent of a notorious scaudal affecting the moral character of the Congressman. Kiucaid had sent in his caul to see a Kentucky member, aud was waiting at the East door leading into the floor of the House. Taulbce aud several others came out of the House while Kiucaid was standing iu the outer doorway, and walking up to hi in asked in an undertone indistinguishable to the doorkeeper. It is said that the lie passed. The doorkeeper then noticed Taulboe, who is largo framed and muscular, grab Kincaid by tho lapel of tho coa% and with a strong grasp held him while he said: "Kiucaid, eorno out iu the corridor with me.': tiilv .meet and l'akt. The report which llew about the C lpital stated that the Congressman had pulled the correspondent's nose and ears, but the doorkeeper who was standing there denies this. Kiucaid is a small, slightly built, man, suffering from illness and some nervous ailment. His reply to Taul bee's invitation to come- out into the corridor was: " I am in no condition for a physiea1 contest with you. I am unarmed Taulbee responded Ui U he also was unarmed, and the meu were seperated by friends. Taulbeo and Kiueiid then went their way, the former into the House- and the latter it. is supposed after a pistol, for as he stated he had none at the time. si All'!'],hi' 1JT A shot. About 1 :�)*) o'clock the members aud their friends dining in the restaurant were startled by the sharp report ol a pistol tired very near the private r r r. Thos. C. Conser, formerly of this place, but lately of Uebersburg, will locate at Saloua April 1st, and take charge of Dr. Holloway's practice, who goes to Akron, Ohio. Guistwite v\i IJiungard, the Greene township lumbermen, are doing a very good business. The mill is running to its full capacity, and they have upwards of twenty teams on tho road. Judge Isaac Frantz, of Tylersville, who has been confined to his bed with typhoid fever for the past eight weeks, is now somewhat better, we are glad to say, and hopes are entertained for his speedy re-coveay. Daili' Komid Trip Tickets. The passeuger department of the Iieech Creek Railroad has issued a circular authorizing the sale of round trip tickets to and frjin the principal stations on their line, including Ivewuerry and Williamsport. These round trip tickets will bo sold at reduced rates, and will be valid for return tiip same day or next succeeding' day; if sold ou Saturday they will bo good until the following Monday. This is a liberal arrangement for the benefit of those who have occasion to take short trips to Williamsport, aud also into the lumber and bit 11 mi nous coal regions. The arrangement will go into effect March 1st. THE BROWN MURDER TRIAL The Attorneys in the Case Pleading to the Jurymen. NEWS PROM THE P0UE WARDS Thu Ithuiil lirldget*.

The argument of District Attorney Brungard occupied over two hours of the time yesterday afternoon and is said to have been an able, forcible and convincing speech. He was followed by C. S. McCormick for the defense, who addressed the jury until adjournment of tho afternoon session. Tho court room yesterday afternoon was crowded to suffocation with spectators many of whom were ladies. This morning at the opening of tho court Mr. Mr. McCormick resumed his address, 6poakiug calmly aud deliberately, yet earnestly in behalf of the prisoner. The courtroom was well filled at the morning session to-day but was not crowded to such an extent as before. Thero were not so many ladies in tho audience either, but the speakers navo the close attention of all present. Outside the court room there is much speculation as to what the verdict will be, aud public sentiment is divided on the subject. H. T. Harvey, Esq., followed Mr. McCormick on the part of the defense. Both of the prisoner's ; counsel have labored hard in his defense, and no efforts have boon spared to secure a verdict favorable to their client. Tho attorneys for the commonwealth have, however, labored just as earnestly. Mr. Harvey began his address at 11 o'clock and had not concluded when the hour for adjournment camo. At the conclusion of his argumeut this afternoon Mr. Abrams will begin his address which will likely occupy several hours time. The judges charge to tho jury will thon be giyen and the jury w:I.� rot.iro for deliberation. At the hour of going to press Mr. Harvey was still speaking. The court room was packed with people and all standing room occupied. PUNGENT TOT I'Oi'KKI. Miss Kcddltij; Monday Night. An exchange thus alludes to Miss Frau-cosca Redding who opeus a week'H engagement at tho Opera Houso Monday night. As "Muritaoa," Miss Redding could not have appeared to better advantage. Her stage methods were absolutely perfect, her voice, was a revelation to all. Sho won the hearts of tho vast audience with her superb acting and fiuo voice. Her costumes wore marvels of excellence and must have cost a small fortune. Stic* cops will surely attend the efforts of this brilliant young star. Yulrmble Clay Deposit*. Thomas Stafford claims to have found valuable deposits of clay for making china-ware on Pine Crcok, in Lycoming county, and has secured ninety-five acres with a view of having tho clay beds developed. He says that ho has proved one bed three thousand feet Hquaro and yesterday displayed samples of the clay at this office. Ho proposes to have these samples thoroughly tested. Will Save Visitors From Swimming. The Bellefouto.M?77i�>i;ra� sayB: Tho Lock Haven Council haB contracted with a Now York Arm for a stone crusher with engine, boilor, beltand conveyor.all to cost 2,000. It will probably be a good thing for that city, and in tho course of time may savo visitors to it from swimming through the mud to find a stopping place. A Match Factory ilumed. At 12 o'clock Thursday night the match factory at Philipsburg, Centre county, took fire from tho engine room, and in a short time waB iu ashes. The loss is estimated at $40,000, on which thero was no insurance. The factory gavo employment to about fifty persons, most of whom were boys and girls. Notice, to 1*. O. S of A. Mombera of Camps No. 101 and No. 195, P. O.

HIS AEEEST LED TO A BIG EI0T Which Resulted in Ten Men lteing Killed Outright and a� Many More Wur Wounded-Married Another Woman. Claiming Ilia l'lri-t WiTe Uad Been Divorced. BiR.MiNT.nAM, Ala., Feb. 2S.-Richard R. Hawes was hanged here to-day for the terrible murder of his wife and children which brought about the riot at the jail. The crime for which Hawes paid the penalty with his life to-day was the murder of his wife and two children, May aod Irene Tuesday morning, December 4, 1SS8, the body of May was found lioating in an artificial lake at East Lake, apleasuro resort six miles from this city, but it was not identified until the next day. The discovery led to still further investigation and the residence of Hawes was visited by several persons, who found the place deserted and evidences that a terrible crime had been committed. Thero were blood splotches on the fioor and walls, aud in a corner of one of tho roomB a bloody club was found. On the same day it was learned that Hawes had been married to Alias Slay Storey at Columbia, Miss. Ho was arrested the same night while passing through Birmingham on Uifi way to Georgia to spend his honeymoon. Ho identified the body of his child, but stated that ho had beeu divorced from his wife and sho had gone away. The children, he said, had been placed in a convent at Mobile, and he was at a loss to understand how May's body came to be found where it was. The palpable improbability of such a story convinced those who heard his statement that he had murdered the rest of the family. By the direction of tho coroner the lake was Jraiued and the bodies of Mtb. Hawes and little Irene, heavily weighted with railroad iron, wero found ou the bottom. The finding of Mrs. Hawes' corpse inflamed the public mind to a state of frenzy. All efforts of the press, city aud county authorities to allay tbe excitement were futile. Tho jail was stormed by 10,000 people determined to lynch the murderer. Tho Sheriff ordered them to halt, but the mob replied with cries and densiou and pressed forward. Tho order was gi%renthe guard to fire and a volley resulted in tho death of ten persons aud tho wounding of many more. Tbe spirit of the mob was broken and it never returned to the attack oontrary to tho expectation of tho authorities, who had in tho meantime telegraphed to tho governor for military assistance. Hawes' trial commenced on April 2G, aud lasted eleven days. The jury returned a verdict of guilty, with tho death penalty, after two hours deliberation. TAI<MAGK A MONEY-MAKER. In the Enjoyment of an Immense Income, Which is Constantly Increasing. From tbe New York Sun. That Mr. Talmago is the most successful money getter of any man of his profession is generally admitted. His iucomo is from four sources-his pulpit (ehureh salary), his published sermons, his lectures and his interest and dividend account. The most reliable estimate of his gross iucome makes i t $40,000 auuually. He is a good business man, and his investments are generally safe and profitable. Much of his mouoy is in mortgages on Brooklyn real esla<e. His total possessions, all accumulated by his own industry and shrewdness siuco he be came pastor of the Tabernacle Church amount to little if any less than $500,000 in value. All his money has been made since ho was forty years old, and ho is not yet sixty. Ho has some miscellaneous sources of income, which yield him what most men would estimsto a comfortable living. Uis contributions to several religious and secular publications are liberally paid for, and now it is aunounced that he will be tho editor of a new semi-religious weekly at a big salary. It is probably true that no living man's words are so widely read as are those of Dr. Talraage. Moro than 500 American newspapers print his sermon every week, and in England also a largo syndicate of papers regularly publish his Sunday moru-iug discourses. This publicity has beeu a matter of slow growth, carefully nourished under Talmage's own managerial eye. At first he gladly furnished free access in advance to his manuscript to correspondents of out of-town papers which ventured to publish occasional abstracts of his discussion of sensational or particularly timely subjects., For eomo timo certain papers at a distance printed genuine telegraphic reports. Somo editors iu the wild West were among tho first to discover that their roaders liked to read Talmage's com-meut on the topics of tho day, for that was what the sermons chiefly contained at that time. ^The demand grew, and, with his advertising instincts fully alert, Talmage encouraged it in every possible way. He was always ready to do a newspaper man a favor, aud tho reporters liked Dr. Talrnagc. Very few preachers are sufficiently consistent in their strict construction of tho Fourth Commandment to allow a reporter to make an abstract of a sermon on Saturday, so that it shall not bo necessary for him to do half a day's work on Sunday. Talmage was always willing to do this, or better. Any tired reporter assigned to Talmage'^ Sunday morning sermon knows that ho can get the whole thing on a printed slip by calling on the Doctor after tho service. This last great convenience Is a facility of comparatively recent development. Dr. Talmage's enterprising private secretary was one of tho first to take advantage of tho newspaper demand. For a long time he sent to various papers by mail a few days iu advance manifold copies of his employer's weekly sermon, and bo netted a handsome sum by tho schome. � Whether he divided with the Doctor -doesn't appear. Probably not at first, but ' before long the mine- grew so rich thatj^ Talmago himself made up his mind to work;^ ; it for all it was worth. He arranged with 4V one or two syd'eates for distributing bis ^ sermons all over the country, and tbey paid him a handsome sum for tbe exclu- .; � sive advance use of his manuscript. Print- y; ed slips were scut to subscribing news-|^; papers for a long time. Tho demand in-creased, and so did did Dr. Talmage's Tif pneo. Finally thu enterprise took a new shape. A great field might be covered which even *. the manifold copies and the printed ad-*^ vanco slips did not reach. The army ot'^])' smaller papers which subsist not upo*^ manuscript, but upon blocks of ready-mad^f;* tj'pc metal, demanded Talmage's sermons.^'. Talmage was willing the7 should have : them-for his price, which was a big one. -It was paid, and finally tho American'. Press Association, which does an enor^v mous business in supplying stereotype*, plates to newspapers throughout the ooun45 try, becanio practically the sole medivumS for the distribution of TalmageTs sermons'.^ Some fifteen of tho largest newspaper*^ which set their own type continue to ieS*F-ceive slips from the Doctor's secretary,;;; who makes a fat perquisite of what was once a big source of income. The price paid Dr. Talmage by the American Press Assession for tho exclu- ;� * sive advance use of tho manuscript of his . sermons is at tho rate of nearly $12,000 -V; per annum. But that by no means ex- 7 presses his full income from tho publica- ' tiou of his sermons. Soou after his sermons bocame popular among American papers, a weekly religious parser published -iu England sought tho exclusive right to * Lhe use of his manusoript iu that country. A bargain was promptly closed by the Doctor. Before long moro English papers endeavored to get the same privilege. Dr. � Talmage never neglects an opportunity to , secure greater publicity for himself and his sermons, and he promptly cancelled \ his first contract and arranged that his ; discourses should go to as many papers in *' tho old country as might be willing to pay ; for them. Tho English syndicate is now .; quite a largo one, and tho net revenue � from this source, added to tho handsomo prico paid by the American Press Association, makes Dr. Talmago's iucomo from his sermons boforo thoy are delivered greater than his salary from tho Tabernacle. Besides all this, thero comes to him a good round sum each year iu profits ^ from the sale of his sermons in book form. | A MAIL CAR IN FLAMES. Remarkable Raco of a Traiu to a Water ; Tank on the Central Pacific* ' Ogden Utah, Feb. 28.-Thero was an nteresting and exciting race on the Central Pacific road yesterday morning near Blue Creek, thirty miles west of here. It was a raco against timo and the goal ahead was tho water tank six miles distant. As the west bound fast mail reached a point six miles east of Blue Creek the engineer liscovered that tho mail car, which was filled with through mail was on fire. An effort was m :do to pnt it out, but there beiug no water near tho engineer opened tho throttle and resolved to reach the water tank in timo if possible to save tho valuable cargo. Each minuto the burning train was a milo nearer the promised rescue, and six minutes lauded the burning train under tho spout of the tank, but too late. The uterior was a seething mass of flames aud 15S sacks of through mail were almost totally consumed, and word goon spread through tbo coaches that tbo train was on fire; tho greatest excitement prevailed and only the lightning speed of the train prevented the passengers from jumping from tho cars. Tho railway mail clerk is unable to give even a theory of the firing of the car. WaturNotica. Tho water will bo shut off tho entire city to-morrow from S to 10 o'clock in order to repair a break.
