Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - April 3, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAR-NO. LOCK HAVEN, PA., THURSDAY, APBLL 3, 1890. PBICE-TWO CENTS. EVENING EXPRESS KINSLOE kkotheb8 � . PUBM8HKK8 A CURRENT COMMENT. It should be borne in mind tbat with the decline >� the prevailing rates of interest there baa also been a decline in the price or slmoat ovary necessary of life, in creasing the purchasing power of money. Tbe Ball Tolepbone Company maln-tains its reputation of being about tbe most profitable organization in the whole country. The number of instruments now in use ia 444,801, an increase of 33,350 daring the past year. Tbe cross earnings wen $i,0U,704 sod the expenses �1 385, 006, leaving net earnings to the amount of 12,658,738, or about 63 per cent, on the gross earnings. It bass virtual monopoly of the telephone business of the country. The Boston Advertiter knocks the free ooal demand silly with the following state. ment:"If every iron manufacturer in New England shoald sign a petition for free ooal, it would not alter the faot that during the last week 500,000 tons of domestic coal, at the least catenation, have been brought by New England mills and railroad at prises which leave Nova Scotia ooali free of duty cvtn,out of competition. Tbe duty on bituminous ooal Is Inopera-a'ive, so far as New England is concerned." _ Some of the employes of the Reading Railroad Company complain that the ordar forbidding them to drink intoxioating liquors while on duty is an infringement of their personal rights. They think that the president of the oorcpany and its other ofBoera in high authority ought also to be subjected to sueb a rait. But It is noc no-likely that they already are. The officers of the Beading Railroad Company, ha well as mm in all other responsible positions, generally impose auob discipline on themselves voluntarily. A few years ago the maunfaclure of fine plate glass was almost an unknown industry in the Cuited States. A protective tariff fostered thegrowing industry and now the business Is one of our most important industries. As an example of the progress made in tbis'dircvtioo by American manufactures, we may state that the largest piece of plate glass ever cast in the world was made at the Diamond Plate Glass Works in Indiana a week ago. This glass measured 145 by 195 inches and weighed 3,000 pounds. Wasteful Economy la tna Kitchen. "Many a young wife," said a motherly woman the other day, "would find the wheels of her household moving much more smoothly if she would spend a little less money on the furnishing of her drawing-room and devote it, instead, to supplying ber kitchen with labor-ssving appliances and plenty of utensils. Eoonomy in kitchen ntensils msy easily be pushed too far, and if there is another place where a woman may be more readily exaosed than another for extravagance it is just there. "To have to stop in the middle of making a dessert in order to clean a saucepan or a kettle in which the soup has been prepared, beoanse you have not another is folly when soap kettles osd be bad for twenty-five cents each. To have your kitchen knives of such poor metal that they will not stay sharp, or to let a good knife remain dull because you think yon cannot afford to spend ten cents to have it sharpened, is a real waste of strength out of all proportion to tbe saving. Tahave nothing by which you can measure your ingredients accurately, because it costs more to buy a set of weights or a graduated glass measure than to trust to guess-work and an old tea cup, has spoiled many a good dish that cost just as much and has brought humili atioa oo aaay a good cook. To scrape your porridge pot with a spoon because yon will not buy a patent pot-scraper, for twelve oents, wears out ten spoons, to one pot scrsper, and the hired girl Invariably selects your best spoon for that purpose. Sifting the ooal ashes is such a dirty business as it is asaa^y performed and the aervaut kicks against it so vigorously that the most economical housekeeper soon abandons it In despsir. A patent ash-sifter that allows no dust to esoape and preserves all the' half-burned ooal will pay for itself in one winter and last B ve. A obeap refrigerator can be had for one-third tbe ooat of a good one of tbe same size, bat if you buy it your Ice-bill will be twice as large. "There is hardly anytbiog In the kitchen of which there are not two varities, the aheap and tbe dear, and the result of the uae of either is generally its exact opposite in actual cash. Bat In comfort to one's self and to one's husband and_ children, a saving of time, temper, brain-worry and backache, they repay their own cost many times over every week." BeBttnced to Life Xinprffoenient Augusta, Maine, April 2.-Charles L. Bealp, of Clinton, Maine, convicted of murder in tbe first degree two years sgo fcr poisoning bis father, was sentenced yesterday to life imprisonment. Be is 22 years old.

Wasuinotos, April 2.-In the House to-day on motion of Mr. Keilsy, of Pennsylvania, a bill was passed authorizing the accounting officers of the treasury to audit and pay the olaims of tbe county of Schuylkill, Pennsylvania, for money advanced by it under allotments made by holders during the late rebellion. The Montana Senatorship caso was considered in the Senate to-day, Gray making a lengthy speeoh in lavor of the Demo-oiatio claimants. Without oonclnding his argument he gave way to a resolution by Kvarts expressing regret at the death of Congressman Wilbur, and the Senate adjourned as a mark of respect to bis memory. The nomination ol John R. Mizall, to be United States Marshal for the northern diatrict of Florida, has been confirmed by tbe Senate in secret session. Senator Call moved to make the proceedings of the Senate on the Florida judioial nominations public,,but Sanator Edmunds objected, and the matter went over to tbe next executive session. VICE-ADMIRAL ROWAN BURIED. Not a Hallglons Body. Spbikqfiexd, 111, April 2,-According to an opinion just rendered by the Supreme Court, the Young Men's Christian Association is hot a religious corporation within tbe meaning of the law. In Macon county, a man named Hansher on his death left a will by which most of his property was to be bequeathed to tbe Young Men's Christian Association of Decatur. Heirs contested the will on the ground thai the statutes of Illinois hold that a religions body cannot hold over ten sores of land. In the opinion of the Court, the Young Men's Cfaristisn Association ia not wholly a religious body, but is largely a oharitabie and benevolent organization, and therefore the law restricting tbe amount of property to be held religious corporations does not apply to said Assooiati on. This ia tbe first time the question has ever been tested by the ooarts. The Iowa Anti-Prohibitlonlsta. DesMoineb, April 2.-At the State Conference of the Aoti Prohibition Republicans to-day resolutions were adopted opposing general prohibition, and calling upon the legislature to ao amend the prohibitory liquor law as to give to communities that so desire to act tbe power, subject to a minimum license to be fixed by the legislature, to regulate the sale of intoxicating liquors, through tbe medium oi bigh license, and inaiating on auob ebange in tbe platform of the Republican party as will enable tbem to stand honestly upon it, and to assist in restoring tbe party to complete supremacy.

The company travel in a magnificent private ear, built especially for Miss Clsy by the Pullman Palaee Car Company, at their shop at Pullman, III., at a cost of 118,000, and ia tbe finest private ear ever turned out of that famous shop.

The chances are that either Look Haven or PottBville will be named as tbe next plaoe of meeting. Tbe Allen-town Critic says: "Tbe Juvenile Band of Renovo, who accompanied Crescent Commandery, of Look Haven, made, excellent musio and attracted not a little attention. The juvenile drum major was the oynos-nre of all eyes-the ladies' ores especially -and tbe way in whiob he handled his baton would have done credit to the tallest of hie kind._ Ki-Oovtraor Peltoek's Illaasl. About two weeks sgo ExOoveroor James Pollock left Philadelphia and came to this oity. He is now quite ill at tbe residence of his son-in-law H. T. Harvey, Esq. When he left Philadelphia he waa ailing, and his friends hoped that the change would be beneficial and that the pure mountain air of Lock Haven would improve bis health. Tbelr expectations have not been realized however, and on account of bis sge there is naturally a great deal of solicitude manifested by his relatives. Permanently Enjoined.

The new process for making tool steel from scrap iron and steal is an invention that has infinite scops and destined to revolutionize the trade la edge tools. The new process is the invention of Mr. F. G. Bates, of Philadelphia, and the Philadelphia Inquirer recently gave a fall and complete desoiiption of tbe manner in whioh the experiments were eonduoted as well as many other interesting details relating to the discovery. The company organized to conduct the business proposes to torn] a syndicate, with a capital of several million dollars, to control the foreign patents. Tbe officers are J. F. Biokel, President; Louis Wiemer, Vice President; Isaac L. Miller, Secretary and Treasurer. In addition to tbe officers Mr. Barton Pardee, of this oity, and Bates, the inventor, compose the Board of Directors.

FARMER'S iLLIANCE ANGRY Heats in Chicago and Takes a Decided Stand Against the Supreme Court. A! SET OF EMPHATIC EES0LTJTI0H8 The Highest Coast in tbe lud T�rmad"A Squad or Lawyers," nnd an Appeal Token Pram tha Decision in tha Grangar Cs -Tha Court Characterised ns Shallow and Corrupt. Chicago, April 2.-A special dispatch from St. Paul, says: The Farmers' Alii-anoa of Minnesota met here yesterday and adopted a set of extrsordinory resolutions relating to tha recent deeision of tbe United States Supreme Court In the so-called Granger cases. Tbe resolutions are in part as follows: Saolvti, That ws appeal from tbia second Dred Scott decision to tha people of tbe nation, and wa ask tbem to consider whether any other race would submit to have tbelr liberties thus wheedled away from them on techdlcalitiea by a squad ot lawyers sitting sa a supreme authority high above Congress, tbe President and tbe people. Wa call attention to the faot tbat the oitizons of England, from whom we have largely derived oar form of government, would not permit for one instant,  bench of judges to nullify an act of Parliament. There tha people are properly omnipotent. No civilized government on earth has ever conferred auoh powers upon any court as by our Constitution granted to tha United States Supreme Court In oar anxiety to protest tha rights of property we have created a machinery that threatens to destroy the rights of man. Rooked, Tbat copies of these resolutions be sent to tbe Allianoes of the several States of the Union, with the request tbst they unite with as in an effort to ao amend the Constitution of the United States as to abolish new slavery of States and nation established by and for the benefit of corporate wealth, and to make it ao plain that the people are masters ia this event, tbat no oourt, however, shallow or eon opt shsll ever again attempt to subject them to the domination of tbe artificial personages they have themselves created. Raolui, That we recommend the holding of a convention by tha Allianoes of the United States at an early data to consider the vary grave monstrous questions arising oat ot tarn extraordinary decision. Treat Old People Wall. From tbe Christian Union. Thara is nothing ia the world more pathetic than the meek, timorous, shrinking wsys of oertaln old people-wa have all seen tbem-who have given np their old bom as into younger hands, and subsided into some out-of-the-way oorner of it, to sit by tbe fireside and table henceforth as if afraid of "making trouble," afraid of being "in tbe way," afraid ot accepting half that is their due, and going down to their gravee with a pitiful, deprecating air as if constantly apologising for staying ao long. There ia no acorn too deep and sharp for the sons and daughters who will aeeept this attitude on the part of those to whom they owe so muoh. Sometimes, to be sore, people grow old with a bad grace. They become embittered by misfortune or affliction, or are peevish or unreasonable under tha goad of ill-bealtb. All tbe more do they appeal to great gentleness and faithfulness. Let it be borne In mind that we, too, are hastening on toward the sunset of life, and that we may ripen into very uncomfortable old people, to demand much more of patience and devotion than we, as ehildren, yield tbem. ... A Baeh Bamark. New York, April 2.-The New York East Methodist Episoopsl conference opened iu Brooklyn to-day. The Rev. A. S. Hunt, Secretary of the American Bible society, submitted a position tone presented to the United Btates Sonata, protesting agaiast tbe passage of the bill which provides that all Chinamen found In this oountry, after a certain -date, ahall be imprisoned or fined. The petition denounoea the measure aa outrageous to the christian sentiment of the oountry, and would endanger tbe lives of American missionaries in China. The Rev. A. B. Kindlng aaid that tha bill name as a result of the opposition to the Chinamen of snob men as Dennis Kearney, who represented tha Roman Catholic Church on the PeoifiA Coast. "What we want,"said Kindig, "is more Chinamen and fewer Irishman." There was a mild sensation produced by tbia assertion. Election To Right.

From the Buffalo Courier A few evenings ago I said to my friend Dareal: "Joseph, wby haven't you married ?" The question seamed abrupt, I admit, but the moment was most propitious. As we sat in the coziest corner of tha slob-room testing a new and recompensing brand of oigars, wa talked awhile at random, and finally we, too, drifted to tha subjeat of marriage in Buffalo. Ws spoke of tbe apparent reluctanoe of oertaln young men to do anything butdwandla abont tha object of their adoration, and wban Joseph said, "Do not blame them; perhaps It Is not their fault," I put to him tha stattUag question, "Joseph wby don't you mxrryf" Joseph took several long puffs at his eigar before replying, but finally said, hie ayes fixed on tha ascending smoke: "If you wish to know what has kept ma from matrimony I will tell you. It is tha portiere," -I stared. Joseph went 00: "la other words, it W because parlors hay* no doors-besAasaV our modern houses are one vast whlspar ing gallery, lo whiob the slightest aooad Is heard from one and to another. It ia years since I nave fait sore that I was absolutely alone with agirl-an environmaat necessary for sentimental demonstrations. But to particularise. It Is not long ainaa I became unusually interested in a young woman of my acquaintance. Perhaps I was in lore with her. If not, I know that I might have become so. I paid her rather marked attention for nearly a year, bat in my nnmetoas visits to her house there was never an opportunity for anything bat the most formal conversation. UsuaOy her father sat in the library across tha ball In fall hearing-if not in view-of us. lfo ohenoe to abut a door. At the parlor door portieres; at tha library dow-portieres; at the dining room door-portieres,'and never an opportunity for that aencs of private tete-a-tete whioh gives a man Inspiration for sentimental deeds. "Now It is my idea that tho tima wham mutual love Is first acknowledged anould baa supreme moment in life-one to be made the moat of, and not to be thrown away by any such insensate rnrosediogas a proposal by letter, or even to be rtakad at unpropitious saieona when Interruption Is probable or possible. Therefore,! did not tali my love with papa reading his paper in the adjoining room, or with tha servant fumbling at tha sideboard in tba dining room, with only a thinhusss of oat. taut between bar and ns. I did not tail my rove while ali tba doore were wide open and tha sisters were active in tha . upper halls, and I could hear tha. brotbar in bia room overhead dressing to go oat. No, I waited for sosae momenta of assured privacy. It never came." There waa a long sUaooe. 'Ws#'I aaid at laat, "That is all.
