   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - April 29, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                NINTH YEAB-NO- 51. LOCK HAVEN, FA., TUESDAY. APRIL 29. 1890. price-tHto cemb. EVENING EXPRESS KivstiOK imoTHBna---puiilihhjcbb ONE KILLED-EIGHT HURT. CURRENT COMMENT. Patti oirrioa out of 'Anjtigi 6500,000 la good bard coin. Farewell, doar girl, until the next time. 1 An Express Train's Wild Bnsh Down a Heavy Grada Srould the silver hilt whioa .appears to harp the greatest favor in Congress - it being thB one agreed up m by the tttspub lioan caucus-pui and hucunij a law it will absorb all the silver prodnci �l the country, mod perhaps aomettifaj; nnrs. The national elections of Japan, to be held Jul; 1, will possess ujrclty anJ importance. The; will be watched bore and in Europe, ainae tuey mark the beginning of ptnular gnvarnme&t iu the M^knd'i'e empire. The Mcltmley tariff hill oiuMnn is to He assailoj by the D'.n�'Vir.jt�, bo', it is t.o be obaerveu1 that thriy mike uo attempt to produce a bsttBr. Ouci t'uoy were weeded to the MiU* bill as a thing of perfection, but it has besome a hick number without supporter*- Bain:; d"ad it has uot even mourners', riie .MuKiuIey bill iu�y bo amended, but *t �ri ! pis* ep^'minUy as it, iB. Mayor Grant, bi,'Tiun!n.u>y chief, will have Co explain liow iik trierl to buy a nomination for Comraiti.siouer of Public Worke in that city by paying 4180,000 tu Tammany's leader, Richard Croker. This charge Is made by Croker'a brotlier-iu law, and he not only gives figures, but he gives dates, piaoas, the names of those who oar-tied the money, and various other details that go to make np a complete story. Of course it baa created a great sensation in New Tork and Mayor Grant is looked upon aa doomed politically. First oomea the story that William L. Scott asked Channccy F. Black to cease bis aspirations for tha Democratic Gubernatorial nomination.. Now ere bear that Mr. Cleveland has undertaken to persuade Sr. Scott to abandon his opposition to William A. Wallace's candidacy for Governor. This mixing ia people's affair* is going to create trouble. Mr. Black is atlU a oandidate and Mr. Scott U "agin" Mr. Wallace. They are not willing to eubmlt to diatatiou from anybody, and they have said said so very emphatically-' However, it doesn't much matter who the Democrats nominate, only they shouldn't make so much fuss over selecting the corpse fnr the funeral. Defending Delamtter. Mr. Editor:-Wiih your permission I desire to say, in few word*, in reply to the attack in ynur issue of yesterday, made on Senator Delameter, the probable nominee of oir party for Governor, by so-called "Republican."  It has Ion* Fince becmie a-* axiom of politics that a candidate mnn trust to his friends to defend him 'gains1, the vituperation and abuso of his encmi: s. This was the course pursued by such eminent Republicans as Hartrauft, Grant, Garfield and Rlaim-; no douht for the very good reason that life is tooaho:t to answer the calumnies which are always uttered against the leader in any political contest. The cause of this hitter attack is simply that Senator Delamatcr haa far outstripped all competitors in the noB for the nomination. The best reply to these charges cornea from the people themselves, county after county ohooBing Diameter delegates by large majorities. Last week, in the face of this attack, the Republicans of L-iwrenco county elected Delameter delegates by a popular majority of over 1,500 over all other candidates. In his o�n county, (Crawford) where be la well known- by every man, woman nd child, the lie la most forcibly given to these charges, by the anj recedented fact that out of a poll of over 3,500 at the primaries cot one vote was cast against him. Bat tha moat stinging rebuke to these defamera comes from General Hastings himself, who,with fnll knowledge of these charges, pnblloly declared that, ahould Delameter be nominated, be would stnmp the state in his behalf. Would General Hastings willingly lend his assistance to so unworthy a man as Delameter's enemies paint bim ? It seems to me that it comes with very bad grace from any "Republican," who has the welfare of the .party at heart, to give credence to. or attempt to influence others, by ohaB distributed by such lovers of oar party as the Philadelphia Timtt, Rttord, and Williams-port Sun.       Akotheii Revudlican Little People.

Baltimohb, April 28.-A Staunton, Va., special to the Sun aya: At 3 a. m. to-day the express train on the Cheaapeake and Ohio railroad for Washington was descending a heavy grade a mile west of Staunton when the brake rod of the engine fell; the air brake waa rendered useless and the wild train rushed into Staunton at eighty miles an hour, tearing away the deput roof. The Pullman sleeper left the traok and was thrown on its side. In it were fifteen meaiberB oi tho Pearl of Pekia troupe en r.iute to Baltimore, announced to play here to-ulght Of tlie oompany, Miss Myrtle K-iott, injured, ded while being takun from the car; Miss Edith Miller, leg broken; Mrs. Edward Webb, Edward Stevens, Miss Bertha Fisher, LonU Harrison and Miss lone Dunham all escaped with slight out* and bruises.

The Pearl of Pekin Company in the railroad wreck at Staunton are announced to appear at Harria'a Academy of Music for one week, beginning to-night. The management have wired to Staunton to have the Company brought on to Baltimore in a special train, in order not to disappoint the public; and it is more than likely that a performance will take place tonight, particularly so as no one of the principal members of the troupe seem to be seriously injured. The oompany la a large one, comprising over sixty Ave persons, so that there would be sufficient people to take the place of the injured ones. There are always "under atudya" for every part in a comic opera oompany to provide for every emergency. Those of the company who are reported a* dangerously injured are the chorus men and women, Mr. Louis Harrison, the atarof the organisation, esoaped with but a few bruises. her sake was khox. Officers of the Chesapeake and Ohio road have dispatahes giving an account of tho accident, bnt they do not mention the extraordinary speed of eighty miles au hour. The report from the Superintendent saya that the rear sleeper Anaterlitz left the traok and toppled over on the platform at the passenger station. The young lady whs waa killed waa nrmed Knox, not Knott. She was formerly a telegraph operator iu Kansas City, and joined the oompany not very long ago oontrary to the wishes of ber father.

Wheat was about seventy.five cents per bushel, corn thirty oents, etc. Wages were low also. A farm hand received from five to eight dollar* per month the year round. Day laborers got from forty to fifty eentr a day; this was increased in hay and harveat time. Tbe diet amougst farmrra was about as follows: Fur breakfast, fish or salt m�at and potatoes, rye coffee, fried mnsh or rye bread. For'diuner, soup, pork, sourkraut or cabbage and potatoes, butter waa not aetved every meal, hut applebutter or 'smearcase" and sometimes molasses. Pie waa on the table three time* a day. There wa* no cloth on tha table, and in some places the mnsh or sonp wa* served in a large pewter dish, set in the middle of tho table and all with their spoons ate from the same dish; this waa considered social. But it waa economical. The people were hearty and robust. They took very little medioine of any kind. They bad on hand good pure whisky of some kind, which they drank aa medioine at times. It ooat ten cent* a quart, boya excluded. A girl made from twent-fiva to fifty oent* a week; they eould bny a good calico dress for half a dollar, and make it up in a few evenings; and the rnffela, belt*, beads and other adornments they generally made themaelve>; their heauty wae fair and attractive, and their enjoyments mete for every occasion. I do not eay that we should go back to these primitive customs, bnt that we should learn to be aa economical and tbrllty aa they wen. With the progress of the arts and eoionoe* and the superior mode* of living we have not cultivated the true prioclpalaof right living, viz: contentmeut, economy, honesty and ao-bribty, with industry.
