Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - March 22, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAB-NO. 19. ]X)CK HAVEN, PA., SATURDAY, MAltCH 22, 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS. EVENING EXPRESS KIN'SLOK I.KOTHKRS---rpBLISHKKS CURRENT COMMENT. Col. .Tohh A.. M. Passmoi-.e, of Philadelphia, is a candidate for the Republican nomination far Lieutenant Governor. His nomination would b-s very acceptable to his many friends, and he would till the position with honor to the State. If our Do moo rati a friends are uot careful they will doplete their entire store of adjocii.'js la their heated discussion of the new Kupublican Turiff Bill. Adjective is s i them by the baud and then suggested they pass through the house and see what was to be seen. This did not please them. They evidently think the first lady iu the land ought to play the part of a domestic and escort them everywhere. In fact, there is too much of this kind of expectation. People go to no other place and ask to be shown about. There is a considerable amount of privacy due even the President's family. A xotable illustration of what feminine pluck and brains are capable of accomplishing is afforded by the State Gazette, of Point Pleasant, W. Va., Fifteen months ago the Gazette was sold under the hammer. It had a list of some fifteen hundred delinquent subscribers. It was bought by a young lady-Miss Livia N. Simpson- who at once assumed the duties of publisher and editor of the nearly defunct sheet. Now it has two thousand cash subscribers, and is a well edited, flourishing sheet, with a rosy future before it. It is a staunch Republican newspaper, and its fair editor has, we believe, the unique distinction of being the only Republican lady editor in the whole oountry. We congratulate Miss Lma K. Simpson most1 heartily on the honorable success that she has won in the difficult profession of journalism. 825,000 Wanted. The Clinton County Commissioners today advertise for sealed proposals for a loan of $23,000, for which county bonds will bo issued in suras of $100 to $500, at 4 per cent, interest, payable semi-annually. This loau is made necessary by the extraordinary expenses caused by the disastrous ilood of last June, and the recent murder trialB have no doubt contributed their share of the burden of expenses imposed upon the county during the terms of the present efficient and economical Commissioners.

Washington, March 21,-The news of the death of General Crook was a great shock to the officials of the War Department.

He sent a personal message of condolence to Mrs. Crook, and gave instructions for the preparation of a general ocder announcing General Crook's death to the army. This order will recite the personal worth and distinguished services of the deceased, and will direct that the fiags on all military posts be placed at half-mast on the day of his funeral, and also that officers of the service wear the usual badge of mourning for a period of thirty days. Adjutant-General Kelton said this afternoon that the funeral arrangement will be conducted entirely in accordance with the wishes of the family, and will, to some extent, depend upon the time aud place of burial.

This is to be deplored, and if the citizens of this town, do not see fit to suppress it the court cannot be expected to become a spy. When, by reason of a different sentiment of this court, formerly granted license in thia county was careful to place restiictions around the successful applicants, which woro in themselves sufficient to maintain a careful and respectful obedience to the law. This is the way it works under a well-conducted license-system. Otherwise, however, it opens a way for ('speak-eas.es" to optn up and flourish, where yonng and old men alike congregate and drink their beer and whisky ad libitum. FLOOD AT JOHNSTOWN.

In ren-jlering the decision of the court on the applications for License, Judge Furst said: "The associate judges and myself respectively hold the same opinions ou this question of grautinglicensesln this county as were entertained by us three years ago. This seems to be the settled policy of this court, and I regret that I can't see my duty in the same light as my brethren on the benoh. I would do anything iu the world to break up the "speak easies" and private drinking clubs in this town and county, but under the present state of affairs the ttccompUehUMiot of this would seem well-nigh impossible. I think that a reputablo hotel, kept by a worthy aud conscientious landlord, would contribute largely toward this result; but ray brethren on the bench think differently, however, and they are entitled to their judgment as well as I.
