Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - March 20, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAR-NO. 17. LOCK HAVEN, PA., THURSDAY, MARCH 20, 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS. EVENING EXPRESS K. IN SLOE ISltOTIIKKS---PUBUSHKK8 CURRENT COMMENT. ' Another expedition to the North Pole is proposed, the author of the scheme being Dr. Naneen, a prominent Swedish explorer. The route to bo taken is by way of Beit ring Strait. BisTior Stanley, of North Dakota, charges the Goeernnient with robbing the Chippewa Iodians of their inheritance, and leaving them iu a state of destitution distressing in the extreme. The committee appointed to investigate the abuses of our public charities will investigate. There ib a true ring in the words of Congressman Bey burn and Sona-tor Atylia which means business. An autograph of President Harrison brought only 40 cents at a sale in New York on Monday, but there are men who would give more than that for it if preceded by the words "You are hereby appointed." Restless boomers wbo made haste to move into the Cherokee strip on the supposition that it is immediately to be opened for settlement are reluctantly moving out again in obedience to the presidential proclamation. Chicago should not be crowded too hard about the World's Fair. New York's fund was not raised in a day. So much time has been wasted in preliminaries that it may be wiBeto hold the fair in 1893 instead of 1893. Ode Democratic friends aver right lustily that a National election law is unconstitutional. Are we to infer, then, that they regard the existing forcible suppression of the majority by the minority in Southeastern States as strictly constitu tional. There are so many prisoners iu the jaila of New Jersey that it is now proposed that the Legislature shall pus a law establishing the ticket-of-leave nyBtem. But this is not in accordance with the doctrine of that oelebrated "Jersey justice," of which, by the bye, we hear much more than we see. One of tbe most extraordinary incidents of the high license system in this State is the work of the Judges in Perry county, who granted licenses to all applicants, including one of tbe Judges himself. The spectacle of a tavern-keeper on the bench is made possible by the absurd law which allows "lay Judges," who are often stupid and ignorant, to take part in the proceed* ings of such courts. The tranqmlty that reigns in the business world, since the advent of President Harrison's administration, affords a guarantee that industrial enterprises will not be exposed to the dangerous experiments advocated by Cleveland as the acme of statecraft. And it is in sharp contrast with tbe nervousness, and the doubt and uncertainty that pervaded the country subbsqueut to Cleveland's declaration in favor of practical free trade.

The National Gazette, in an article on the tesigu&ttou of Prinoe Bismarck, s&ye it expects that tbe excitement abroad will subside when the oonviction gains ground that the Germans look to the future with full confidence in the Emperor and the German national spirit. It is stated that the new Military bill which will be submitted to tbe next Reiohstag will be confined to provisions for the completion of the organization of the two new army corps authorized by the last Reichstag. Tbe demand for a credit for the formation of seventy-four new batteries of artillery will be abandoned. Tbe Bourse is weak to-day in consequence of Prince Bismarck's resignation.

London, March 19.-Tbe Vienna Bourse showed a slight depression yesterday, but recovered towards the close. European financiers and bankers appear to be fully confident that the Bismarok crisis has been discounted. There is less excitement in Europe over the Chancellor's resignation than might have been expected. The Temps, Journal dee Debatt, and other Frenoh papers display anxiety regarding the future. They say that, iu view of the previous surprises afforded by the Emperor's policy, there is no guarantee that the structure which tbe tbe Chancellor so carefully built will be retained intact.

General von Caprivi is 59 years of age He passed through the various stages of subaltern rank in a Guard regiment, then got staff employment with various army corps, served with the army in 18G5, and made a splendid reputation as Chief of Staff of tbe Tenth Army Corps during the war of 1870 71 with France. After that his promotion was gradual but certain until, in November, 1882, be was intrusted with the command of the Thirtieth division at Metz. In March, 1883, on the retirement of General Stoscb from the Imperial Ministry of Marine, General von Caprivi was selected as his successor by the late Emperor William I, to the gencrai disgust of the leading naval officers. Admiral Batscb, the firBt in command after General Stoscb, and an old, experienced sailor, felt especially hurt at the nomination of an outsider like General Caprivi, and sent in his resignation. Tbe Emperor, however, appealed to the patriotism of the old tar, who thereupon withdrew bis resignation. General von Caprivi remained at the head of the German Navy until tbe close of June, 1888, when he resigned in consequence of disagreements over questions regarding the organization of the navy.
