   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - March 11, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                oetim NINTH YEAH-NO. 9. LOCK HAVEN, PA., TUESDAY, MARCH 11, 1890. PBICE-TWO CENTS. EVENING EXPKESS KINSLOK BKOTHKKS---PDBtlSHBKS CURRENT COMMENT. It is contended that Ear ops will need a very large quantity of American wbeat "this year,- in view of an estimated shortage in the orop in Russia and elsewhere. It is pretty generally cmoeded that Speaker Rood, of tho Home, is the right man in the right place. His oournge is equal to every emergency an(J bis ability even surpasses his courage. The Republicans in Ohio are already making preparations for the Gubernatorial campaign of next year. Ono-halfof their newspapers have declared in favor of the nomination of William McKinluy for the Governorship. At the Philadelphia Mint, after a oonple million silver dollars had been strnck off, it was found that the eagle's tail had eight feathers instead of seven. Everything was stopped, one feather was plucked out and the work went on again. After a lengthy debate the Rhode Island Bouse on Friday passed a bill making election days legal holidays, the supporters of the measure clainiiug that the working people wanted it. What good will accrue to the workiogman by this useless legislation we fail to see. The Democratic vote in New Jersey next November will probably be several thousand leas tbao it was in 18S9. There will be no "j ikera"or "foreigners" stuffed into the ballot boxes this year and the Republican party will have a chanoe to demonstrate that New Jersey on a fair eount is really a Republican State. Tub thriving oitj of Brockton, Mass.-is an example of what a single mannfao. turing indussry can do to build up a place, In 1870 it had only 8,000 inhabitants; today it has 30,000 drawn there by tho shoe manufacturing business which occupies the attention of the majority of the people. It even publishes a very handsome illustrated monthly to advertise itself and its great and growing industry. The men in Chioago who are responsible for the management of the World's Fair enterprise disclaim any intention of asking Congress for a special appropriation. They are of oourse, anxious that Congress should pass the bill sanctioning the Fair in the name of the government in order that it may have a character before the world and appropriating money for a display of the resources of the various departments of the government. This bill is right and proper, and no objection will or ought to be made to its passage. But so far aa the raising of the money for the Fair in general is concerned, Chicago is willing to take the fall responsibility. Tub sturdy manner in which Postmaster Geoeral Wanamaker advocates the establishment of national postal telegraphy explains the souroe of many of the malignant attacks upon him. Any man who has the courage ta propose a measure which will benefit the people at the expense of a gianrj monopoly may be sure that no effort will be spared to defame and destroy bim. But we hope Mr. Wanamaker will persevere until sucoess crowns bis efforts. Then let him go a step farther and plan a national express system by means of which the pnblio may be aerved at reasonable rates. He may be sure of the support of the great mass of the people in bis efforts to olip the claws of corporations that mercilessly prey upon their customers. The Senate "Leak" luvMtlKatlon. Washington, Maroh 10.-The investigation of the "leak" by which the poblio became acquainted with the proceedings of the 8eoate in executive session was continued to-day. It is not believed that any of the witnesses of the past two days incriminated themselves and what the report of the committee will be or the future course of the inquiry cannot be foretold. MM IN WASHINGTON An Opinion in Which the Bell's Gap Road is Interested. THE   LOWER   OOTIRT  BTJSTADJEB A Great Thread Maker Dead.

Washington, March 10.-An#opinion was rendered by tbe Supreme Court affirming the judgment of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania in the case of the Bull's Gap Railroad Company plaintiff in error, vs tbe Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.   By a law of the State all moneyed securities are subject to an annual state tax of three mills on the dollar of tneir actual value, except bonds and other securities issued by corporations, which are taxed at three mills on the dollar of tbe nominal or par value. The prinoipal contention of tbe railroad company in this was the face value and not on the market value of the securities, was in violation of the 14th amendment of the Constitution of tbe United States, In that it denied them equal protection of tbe laws. Tbe court in an opinion by Justice Bradley says that it does not perceive that tbe assessment transgresses this provision* There is no unjust discrimination against any person or corporation. the fresumption of law. The presumption is that corporate securities are worth their face value. The corporation that issues them is stopped from saying the contrary. But in any view of! the case the law does not make any discrimination in the regard which the State is not competent to make. All corporate sec a rl ties are subject to the same regulations. The constitutional provision that no State Buall deny to any person the equal protection of the laws, the court says, was not intended to prevent a State from adjusting its system of taxation in all proper and reasonable ways. how far a state can go. It would be impracticable aud unwise-to attempt to lay down any general rule or definition aa to just bow far tbe State can proceed under the taxing powers; but it is undoubtedly safe to say that tbe fourteenth amendment was not Intended to compel the States to adopt an iron rule of equal taxation. If that were its proper construction it would not only supercede all these constitutional provisions and laws o! some of the States whose object is to secure equality of taxation, and which are usually accompanied with qualifications deemed material; but it would render nugatory these discriminations which the best interests of society require which are necessary for the enoouragement of needed and useful industries and for tbe discouragement of intemperance and vice. os other uclikos. The Court also rules in favor of tbe State on certain other questions raised, of which the principal were ibat tbe owners of the bonds were not given proper notice, and that tbe corporation is taxed for property it does not own. The case of the city of Chester vs. tbe Commonwealth was also affirmed for the same reason. Tbe Supreme Court denied the application of Miller and Tafel, trustees for a writ of error to tbe Supreme Court of Ohio, to bring here for review the decis-sion of State Court in the case of Mannex, assignee vs. Elder et al., arising out of litigation over the property of Archbishop Purcell, of Cincinnati. The application was denied on the giound that no federal qnes tion was involved. FLAMES IN A TENEMENT. Marrow Kwi*i�c of Inmates  Imprisoned in Smoke and Plaineo. New York, March 10.-Fire broke out this evening in the Tremont House No. 137 Ludlow street, a six story building. The balls and stairways filled quickly with smoke, and the tenants were forced to take to the fire escapes, not stopping to put on a rag of clothing. The iron ladder became heated and at once tbe Humes be gan to play around tbe means cf escape. The fleeing tenants were driven back and to tbe rear only to find the fire roaring up there. S. Hirscberon threw bis baby from tbe second floor firo escape into the arms of a fireman who caught it flying, and then be lowered bis wife and threw the older ohildren to the streot with a rope. The fifty tenants in tbe rear building were at a disadvantage being nnable to reach the street. They rnsbed to the roof and were joined by the crowd from the front of the house coming over the iron bridges struna along the coping in an agitated, despairing line. Men and women shouted for help. Tbe moat desperate climbed over tbe edge of the roof and made ready to jutrp. The roof of No. 139 was the full heighth of a three story house below. Tho firemen finally got a ladder and brought the tenants down. Tbe family of A. Goldstien, consisting of his wife and three children, were rescued from the building by the firemen, nearly smothered.

The fourth number of The Illustrated American shows a decided improvement over all former numbers. The colored supplement is entirely different from anything hitherto presented to the readers of that handsome and artistic magazine. It is called "Wonderment." It is a facsimile of a water-color by Mr. W. J. McCluskey of New York, an American artist who is rapidly pushing bis way into the front ranks. The subject presents a little girl seated In a big chair, resting her chin pensively on ber hand, while ber blue eyes are turned upward with a soft, meditative expression. She is evidently wondering how far tbe distant Btars arc, as io the inscription the lines: "Twinkle, twinkle mile star; How I wonder wbat you aie!" are quoted. It is a bright, cheerful com. position and will be gladly received by thousands of parents. The contents for tbe number are unusually interesting. Tbe frontispiece is headed "The man of tbe "D.iy.11 It gives a wonderful likeness of Emperor William II, dressed in hunting costume. Ab no man in the country is attracting more interest than this young monarch, his picture will be looked upon with great interest. Another great feature is Mardi Gras In New Oileans, which is copiously illustrated by special staff correspondents and artists, sent to atteud the carnival, from the main office. The other features are "My Trip to Brazil,'� by Byron P. Stephenson; Historic America, III; Governors Island, Tbe Chicago Library; Life Saving Service of the Uuited States. Other Illustrations: The Chioago Breakwater; The Shakespeare Statute in Cbieaco; Model of tho U. S. S. S. Maine; TnrDe Generations of Astors. EPITOME OF EVENTS. PUNGENT POT POUIUM.

Ward-An Even Ins; Party-Working; Under Dlmculties-Nearly All In-P. O. of A. at Beech Creek -Sbnt Down for Repairs-Prospects or a Flood. John A. Ward died auddeoly this morning at his residence in this city, aged about 61 years. He remarked to bis wife while at the breakfast table that he feU as well as he ever did in his life, and ton minutes later be wait a corpse. His death resulted from heart failure; The deceased was a veteran of the late war, and a member of the Grand Army. Members of John S. Bittner Post, G. A, R., are requested to meet at their hall Thursday afternoon at 1:30 p. m. to attend tbe funeral, which wilt take place half an hour later. Interment will be made in the soldiers burial lot in Highland cemetery. The Burnt Cork Show. Al. 6. Fields' mintrels crowded the Opera House last night, and tbe perform-ance was highly satisfactory. Like a circus, there was but little new introduced, however, there was sufficient novelty about every act to receive hearty applause and in the majority of instances one or more encores. Al. Field is always fanny and last night was ably assisted by Billy Yan and the Brobst Brothers. The conspicuous features were the juggling and equili* briatic feats of Estua and Leonzo. The wind up was a fizzle and the only disap. j pointment of the evening. As there were no programmes we can't say wbat it was ' called, but it was a very poor finale for | so good a minstrel show. The company left for Pbllipsburg this morning. An Evening Party. j A large party of ladies and gentlemen assembled at tbe residence of Mr. Joseph Shaffer, East Walnut street, last evening and surprised that worthy gentleman and his estimable wife. Games of all kinds, muBic, singing, card playing, etc., made the evening pass very pleasantly. At the proper time refreshments were served and the tables fairly groaned under their heavy load of good things. The party broke up is the "we snia hours" and the guests departed for their homes highly elated over their evening's entertainment and wishing that Mr. and Mrs. Sha3er may live to enjoy many more such occasions. A Table Por the Keporters. The Grand Jury of Lycoming county in making a report to tbe Court last weok recommended that accomodations be pro-4 vided in the court room for tbe accomodation of representatives of the newspapers. As the people of the county rely upon tbe newspapers for court news, accommoda> tious for tbe men who make the reports will be appreciated, not only by tho newspaper men but by the tax payers aud voters who read the papers. Tbe proper Clinton county officials would do well to follow suit in this matter. The Ice Harvest. Ice cutting was ended for the present, at least, by the rain whioh began falling last night. Tbe high temperature yesterday affected the ice considerably, and much of that boused in the afternoon and night was soft and -"spikey." P. M. Christie succeeded in bousing about 150 tons off tbe river. Work was generally suspended about 10 o'clock last night. The weather bulletins indicate rain for to-mor" row, and a general break up seems probable. A pleasant Surprise. Mrs. W. G.iDrauoker was surprised last night by a number of her friends dropping in upon her arjd helping to celebrate her birthday. Tbe evening was passed in a royal manner and will be long remembered by those who Were fortunate enough to be present. May she live to celebrate mauy more birthdays is the sincere deairo of a host of friends. Prospects of a Flood. A telephone message to tbe Exi'kess from Clearfield states that considerable rain fell there last night and it is still raining to-day. Ab there is nearly a foot of snow in all the up river country a flood that will bring in the logs and timber is likely to result, from the rain and melting snow. Killed in the Woods. Solomon Sbultz, a woodsman was killed while at work at a log job in Lycoming county on Monday. Ho was struck by a sliding log and instantly killed. Hope Hose Mealing. A regular meeting of Hope Hose Company will be held this evening at 7:30 sharp. A Migi'4-Hiiiieous Mixl urt of Sense and Nonsense Scissored and Scribbled. We Opine that the musical Nero, Who 1! da lea with Koine In the throes, Would to-day liuve been known as abero Had he played, 'stead of hddle, the hose. A young dude of the First ward blackened his "base ball moustache" with a lead oomb and tDen took bis girl out for an eveniug stroll. Wbeu tbe young lady appeared in the light of tbe circle, a couple of hours later, her face looked like a map of some great railroad center.

There are "portable fire-escapes for household use." I> people who are inclined to complain because the children coast on the side walks would comply with tbe city ordinance regarding tbe keeping of the walks free from snow, there would be no trouble from sidewalk coasters.

The editor who advises his readers 'never to climb a tree altera panther," may mean well, but his advice is superfluous. He should reverse his admonition and advise a panther never to climb a tree after his readers. An observing exchange remarks that eterybody expects a return of friendship for friendship, and nobody is the friend of a man who is the friend of nobody. An exchange objects to girls buying shirts, collars, cuffs, neckties and other musculine furnishings. We can see no reason for complaint, especially if they are purchasing them for tbe other fellow. They sauntered past tbe candy shop With tempting dainties spread; She looked unutterable things, But not a word she said. He drew his cash right there and then. And bought a pound-that man did; He could refuse her nothing when Her manner was so candied.

Silk and wool are again oombined, and in many unique ways. Some are very strikipg, others equally quiet in character. Sleeves, differiuc in many instances both in color and fabric from the bodice, are features of extreme distinction. Jacket fronts are a prominent feature on many new waists. They fall open over a folded vest which has an inner plastron or vest of another fabric. Fruit buds are frost nipped. "Maiden, why weepeat thou? A tear Ik on thy cheek.

ANOTHER OF THE WELSH H0KK0RS Kxplosion of Qas la tbe Afoosa Colliery Glamorganshire-Efforts to Reach the Burled Men Blocked by Falls of Stone and Spread of Black Damp-Taulbee at Heath's Door. Lohdon, Maroh 10.-A terrific explosion ocourred to-day io the Morsa colliery, in Glamorganshire, Wales, whioh it is feared will be attended with muoh loss of life. One hundred minerB are entombed and communication with them is impossible for tbe present. It is feared (bat all of them bave perished. Liter advices from Morsa colliery are that 300 miners were entombed, bat that 200 have been rescued from the workings nearest tbe main shaft. Most of those taken out are unhart, but Beveral bave received fatal injuries. Heavy falls of rock prevent the explorers from reaching tbe more remote workings. The choke d^mp is spreading and It is feared that at least ninty lives bave been lost. A further fall of debris bas blocked the pits. A later estimate makes tbe nnmber of dead 160. Eight bodies Bhockingly mutilated bave been recovered from the Morsa mine. Great excitement was caused at the pit by a rumor that appeals for help could be beard from the entombed men. The rescuers are constantly succumbing to tbe effects of the gas and are obliged to make s speedy retreat. "The Irish Boy" in New York. 'The dear Irish Boy" is the next attraction at the Opera House, the date being Friday evening, March 14th. Read what the New York Evening Neiea of June 11th says: "The Dear Irish Boy," whioh was presented at the Windsor Theatre last evening, scored a bit. As its title indicates, it is Irish, and although not now in story or cODstruotion, it is so cleverly treated that lack of novolty is no drawback to its success. Aside from tho dramatic features in characters, scenes aud climaxes aDd very excellent dialogue, there is dano-ing, singing, bag-pipe playing, etc., to illustrate the customs of the country, all of which was done skillfully and in keeping with the incidents of the drams. Dan McCarthy as Teddy O'Neil was admirable and sang and danced as well as ho acted and pleased every one by bis willing personality and ability. Gus Reynolds, one of the best actors of Irish parts in tbe oonntry, was amusing and detestable as the villain, and won deserved applanse for his good acting. "Tbe Dear Irish Boy," will no doubt crowd the Windsor despite the hot weather." Found In the Biver. Pekin, Ills., March 10.-The body of Bernhard Jungb3us, a wealthy German borae dealer of Peoria, was found in Illinois river Saturday. He had drawn $2,000 from tbe bank on Thursday and intended to start for Germany, It was evident he had been murdered and robbed, and policemen snspeoted Link Hummal and Bill Tuckey, who lived in a den near tho river. Last nigbt they entered the bouse, but aa they did so the two ruffians dropped through a trap door and escaped to the river by means of a sewer. Two women who lived with them were arrested, and the murdered man's watob, chain add ring found on them. He had been enticed into tbe den on Friday and murdered and the body then thrown into the river. Working Under Difficulties.

From tho Chicago Tribune. At the top of the page on tbe register in the Leland Hotel, in Chicago, this was written the other day: "Mr. and Mrs. William T. Germain, Minneapolis." The words were written ir. a big, business hand, and suggested nothing romantic. The arrival of Mr. and Mrs. Germain recalled their visit to the hotel made a year apo when they were enjoying the honeymoon of a marriage full of fancy. Mrs. Germain, who was a Miss Florence Gray, was employed in a Nyaek, N. Y., hat factory five years ago. One day while ohatting with tbe otber girls she said she was going to send her card to tbe man that wore tbe bat she was working on. She wrote: "FlorenceGray, Nyack-on-the-Hudson, N. Y.," cj a slip of paper and put it inside the hat band. In a few hoars she bad forgotten all about tbe joke, which turned out most pleasantly. Tbe bat with the inclosed address found its way to William T. Germain, of Minneapolis. He discovered the slip of paper one day and used it for a book mark. Returning from his store ane evening be picked up tbe volume and the card dropped to the floor. It so attracted bis attention that he wrote to tbe person, telling how be learned ber address, and asked ber to correspond. Then followed the old story. Letters came like snowflakes and friendship ripened as the correspondence increased. Photographs were exchanged, and Mr. Germain started East to meet personally the one who bad attraoted so much of his time. The second trip to Nyack resulted in the marriage, and a greater part of the bridal trip was spent at tbe Leland just abont a year ago Three Slonths of Special Bible Study. The Bible Institute in Chicago, of which D. L. Moody is the head, has been fortunate enough to secure the services of Prof. W. G. Moorhead, of Xenia, Ohio, for the three months of April, May and Jane. Prof. Moorhead ia regarded by many as the most suggestive, thorough, and stimulating Bible teaoher in the country. Mr. Moody sends oat a oordial invitation to all ministers, evangelistB, theological students and other christian workers in all parts of the land who wish a new inspiration in the study of tbe Word of God to come to Chicago for tbe entire three months or a portion thereof and take advantage of this great opportunity.

Christian young men and ladies from the colleges could profitably spend the spring vacation attending Prof. Moorhead's lectures. Wanamaker the Leader of the Cabinet. Pott8ville Miners' Journal. Postmaster-General Wanamaker went into office untried. Familiar as be -was with business life be was actually ignorant of politics, and even Republicans watched bis introduction into his important office with grave apprehensions. No snob anxiety is felt tor him now. With a keenness and a quickness tbat could mark no quality but genins he bas acquired a grasp of bis duties tbat is almost perfect. The untried politician of a year ago is now the sagest oounselor at the Cabinet board, wearing his honors modestly, but in the public eye, and commanding respect where affeotion is withheld.
