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. Next Summer'e Supply. Messrs. Mussina & Heed have perfected arrangements for obtaining all the ice required to supply the people of Lock Haven the coming summer. The ice is perfectly pure, and of fine quality. They will erect a temporary ice house iu the upper yard for storing the ice as it is removed from the cars, thereby preventing loss by melting, Bessie-M. Daugborty, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D. M.

Washington, March 21,-The news of the death of General Crook was a great shock to the officials of the War Department. Secretary Proctor was particularly affected by the intelligence, as he had very intimate association with General Ciook during bis recent visit to Washington a few weeks ago. 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. From his personal acquaintance with General Crouk, he was of opinion that he would, uot care to have any particular pomp or ceremony at bis funeral. The details will be arranged, however, as soon as the wishes of the family are known. at general CJiOOK's HOMK.

Hayes, General J. D. Cox, and mauy others. It was only last year that he united with the Ohio Commaudery of the MAUtaiy ! Order of the Loyal Legion, aud its members expected to elect him their SeniorVice Commander at the coming election.

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.

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.

The steady rain, which has been falling all day, gives rise to fears of high water. By telephone messages from Clearfield it is learned that the river there is high. At one o'clock there was a seven foot flood at that place. Clearfield creek, whiob empties into the river a short distance below Clearfield town, is also high and logs are coming into the main stream in great numbers. Experienced rivermen here say that a seven foot flood at Clearfield, and a proportionate rise in other tributaries of the river would cause a rise at Lock Haven of about 8 feet. Unless , the rain &nould continue with a heavy downpour in the up-river regions, no danger is apprehended of a flood that would overflow the town. later news. At 2:20 this afternoon a telegram to the ExriiESs from Seating stated that it was still raining there, the water was riBiDg and the indications were favorable for a big flood. There was only a small flood in the river here at 2 o'clock this afternoon, but the water had commenced to rise and Bald Eagle creek was also rising. The latest intelligence from Clearfield obtainable by the Exfbess was that the rain had ceased but the river was still rising. While the river may possibly get too high for rafting the water is not likely to ovorfiow the banks. An Attractive Window. S. C.
