   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - April 4, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                wn in NINTH YEAR-NO- 30. LOCK HAVEN, PA., FRIDAY, APRIL 4, 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS. EVENING EXPRESS KIHSLOK BROTHERS---PCBLISHBtBS CURRENT COMMENT. In Cbioago the sobool marms gat M75 ply for a year's services, Mid they �re complaining it is not enough-they want more. Tbey have big ideas out iu tbat enterprising city. The Maine ice betveet is pat dawn, in round number*, it 2,000,000 tons. There is plenty of this commodity (or every need, bat tbat it will be mnali higher than in other year* is certain. The total number of licensed saloons in tbe city of New York now ia 7,784, not to speak cf tbuse that are not licensed. And yet complaint is made to tbe Exoiee Board tbat tbe city ought to have more saloons! Ics cream manufacturers talk of patting up tbe price of tbat delioioas summer compound, because of the prospect that ice will be dear next summer. And wbat will tbe poverty stricken bean do, when he 1*.oat for a walk with bis best girl, if tbe prioe of ioe cream goes up? I� men were half as oaref ul about their reputation and bonor aa tbey and tbeir friends afterwards are to keep all mention of their wrong doing out of the pnblio prints, there wonld be less rascality in the world and fewer annoyances to the newspapers. Eighteen Tbbiutobibs were admitted into tbe Union as States before they had attased tbe 100,000 mark in population. Tbe character and ability of tbe people to govern themselves in Statehood, and tbe growth of tbe new State, was tbe prevailing argument common to eaob admission. It applies to Wyoming and Idaho with the same force tbat it applied to each of the eighten. It bas been decided by tbe Court of Claims tbat the Sergeant-at-Arms of tbe Bouse of Representatives is practically a disbursing officer of tbat body, and therefore tbe Government is responsible for all monies placed in bis hands by members of Congress. This praotically decides tbat those Representatives wbo confided tbeir cash to bis earo will have it paid back to tbem.  This is what everybody expected. Ehis Bet has accepted the offer of the German Government, and will return to Violoria-Nyanza to bnild up a German dominion in Africa at tbe pay of (5.000 a year. Tbe governments of Europe were preparing to give bim a series of receptions and to confer a whole avalanche of real gold medals, bat tbe Pasha, wedded to his Afrioan mission, foregoes all tbis olatter of fame, and returns to the Interior of the Dark Continent to complete his work. Thus are few men who are so well qualified for the new office of Assistant Secretary of War as General Daniel H. Hastings. He bas both the taste and the training for the duties of snob a place, and wonld fill it admirably. Tbe suggestion of his name at this time for tbe post is doubtless intended to induce him to re retire from tbe canvass for tbe Governorship. This may deter General Haatings from giving tbe subject as ronoh consideration aa he would doubtless be disposed to give to it if be were not a candidate for Governor. Have the Courage To tell a man wby you refuse to credit him, or wby you will not lend him money. To pay yonr debt* when you have the money, and to wear old clothes until yon can pay for new ones. To speak to a friend in a seedy coat, even though you are in company with a riob one, and richly attlired. To speak yonr mind when it is necessary tbat you should do so, and hold your tongue when it is prudent that you should do so. To show your respect for honesty, In whatever guise it appears, and your contempt for dishonesty and duplicity, by whomsoever exhibited. To cat tbe most agreeable acquaintance you have when you. are convinced tbat he lacks principle-a friend should bear with a friend's infirmities, but not �itb bis vices.      ' _ New Tork Baal Estate. Three estates were sold on Broadway, New York,a few days ago at higb figures. Tbey formed the northwest comer of Broadway and Liberty streets.

A DARING DIAMOND THIEF He Fights for $1,500 Worth of Gems in the Palmer Honse, Chicago. ah Exonraa chase and capture The Thief Feigns Illness-Has the Diamonds Beat -to Hi. Boom  Where He floors the Salesman With a Cane and Attempts to Leave the Ilia Hotel-Claims It as His First Offense. Chicago, April 2.-Ad exoiting hand-to-hand enaounter for (1,500 worth of diamonds occurred to day in a room at tbe Palmer House. One of the combatants was a young man wbo registered at tbe hotel Sunday under the name of Ralph Allen. This afternoon he sent to Hymen's jewelry store and several other similar establishments asking tbat some diamonds be sent bim for inspection. In making tbe request, he wrote incidentally that he was confined to tbe hotel with a aprained ankle. Salesman W. A. Bigler was sent by Hyman & Co. to make inquiries concerning Allen and found bim bathing arte ankle with arnica, and wanting tbe diamonds to make a present. the salesmen was suspicious. The salesman was suspicions, but decided to return with an assortment of gems and take the precaution to have a hotel porter named Perret stationed near at band. Wben Bigler re-rented tbe apartment w ith tbe (1500 assortment of sparklers Allen made a careful selection and then bobbed around back of tbe salesmen ostensibly to get money to pay .for tbe pur-ohase. Instead tbe fellow pulled a heavy oane from under a mattress and felted Big. ler to the floor. the salesman grapples with him. Toe salesman, a sturdy six-footer, straggled up and grappled with Allen, meanwhile yelling to tbe porter. Before tbe latter individual gathered bis wits Allen had broken the oane in four pieces over Bigler's bead and dashed down tbe ball-way. To persons wbo attempted to stop him he shouted. "Catch tbat insane man," pointing back as he ran. hot fooled by that cry. Timekeeper Gregg, of the bote! staff, Was the only person not fooled by this cry. Gregg finally overhauled Allen in a room into which he bad dodged and taken refuge under a bed. Allen's papers indicate tbat he came from Washiugtoo, and possibly his-right nsme is George A. Pierce. The salesman bas a number of gaping scalp wounds, but will reoover. None of the diamonds were lost. this is my FrltST offense. The prisoner would not talk about his past more than to say: "Before God this ia my first offense against the laws. This is tbe first time I have been guilty of a crime. I am willing to plead guilty and go to prison, but I am not willing to tell my true name and bring disgrace on my poor mother and father. Tbey ahall not suffer any more for me if I have to atay in prison ten years. I was druuk, and that is all there is to it. Liquor was entirely to blame. I have worked honeatly as a book-keeper and in other positions, and 1 have never been a thief. But sooner tban bring tbis disgrace on my parents I will suffor the full penalty." In a Fit of Insanity. j Egg Harbor City, N. j., April 3 - George Lang, a prosperous farmer, living four milts from this piece, last night in a I fit of insanity set fire to his house with the intention of burning up his family. J He first set fire to the bed in which his 2-year-old daughter was lying asleep, but the fire waa discovered by the oldest daughter in time to snatob the child from the burning bed and escape from the house. She immediately gave the alarm to the neighbors, but before they arrived tbe bouse was ablaze. Tbe other children were rescued with much difficulty, but it was too iate to get tbe father out of tbe burning building as be had secreted himself. After tbe fire bad spent itself bis bones were found in the ruins. Host of tbe clothing and furniture of tbe family weie burned and tbey are in destitute circumstances. --�--� i Renovo's Postmaster.

Paris, April 3.-Tbe Prince of Wales, wbo is here on bis way back from Berlin, has always been popular in Paris, and is now received with even more than usaat emf reasexent. It is noted, however, that tbe Prince, although only 48 last November, is aging rapidly; that be has a worn out wearied look, and walks like a feeble man, being obliged frequently to stop and take breath. These evidences of physical decadence corroborate the recent recent reports that the Prince ia seiiouBly ill. Lilly Clay Company To-Hlght, The Lilly Clay Burlesque Company will appear at the Opera^House to-night in a performance of ohoioe novelties. The aggregation is the largest of its elasa traveling and provides an entertainment that cannot be excelled by any burlesque company now before the public. That a large audienoe will witness their performance goes without saying. Tbe St Louis Qlohe-Democrat says: "Never before was such a rush seen aa waa witnessed at tbe Stand-ard Theatre last evening. After every seat waa sold, people scrambled for standing room. It was by far the largest house at the season, and was dne to tbe advent of some three doxan pretty young ladles in the spectacular burlesque of Tbe Devil'a Frolic' Aside from the pretty musio and pretty girls, tbe novelty of tbe entire stage production in which so few members of the male sex appeared was an innovation to radical yet so pleasing that'tbe large audioenee was more tban delighted, and when the curtain fell people wanted more. It was a great show." A Jolly Crowd. The Allentown Chronicle of tbe 2nd insL says: One of the most clever parties of Knights in town Is Crescent Command-ery, of Lock Haven, who are stopping, twenty-five strong, at tbe Fairview House, where they are being well taken care of by Martin Hefel. Besides carrying tbeir fine new silk flag in yesterday's parade tbe Lock Haven boys claim to bavs the handsomest captain in the State. His name is C.C. Jacobs,but unfortunately he was compelled to leave for home yesterday to make arrangements for his wedding, which will take place next Tuesday. Crescent Com-mandery is accompanied by the Juvenile Band, of Renovo, whioh is composed of twenty three boys all under sixteen years of age. Tbey are good musicians. We are sure that if Lock Haven is chosen as the place for holding tbe next session of the Grand Castle the Knights will be well entertained. Death or an Aged Lady.
