Tukuk was no "applause frum tbo Democratic side of the Honso" when But-terwoith's voice rang out his "aye" for the McKinley bill. Sam Jon'ES cleared $2,000 by a week's work down in Mississippi. Samuel kno^s how to make things spiritual and financial work to-gotlier. The National Uousu of Representatives has done its part toward securing tariff revision along protectionist lines. Now let the Senate be equally prompt. Send your friends the souvenir edition of the Express nest Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, It will cost you. ten cents, postage paid, for the three days. The, probabilities are that the two wings of Pennsylvania Democracy will not (lop in harmony at Scranton. Then) is too much red paint and scilping knife visible now. DESTRUCTIVE RAIN STORE Properly Destroyed aiid Lives Lost in the 'Western Part of the State. PAET OF OIL OITY UNDUE WATER. The most trusted man in a Wiiterbury, Conn., firm has been arrested for stealing $10,000 of the firm's money. These "most trusted mou" occasionally'develop traits that would indicate that "no trust" would be a good placard to fasten ou tbcro. It seems hardly the fair thing that Mr. Carlisle should have two opportunities to register a vote against the McKiuley tariff bill, yet thiB is apparently inevitable. lie voted against tho measure on final passage in the House and will move over into the Senate in time to take part in the debating and voting. The meanest tliief in the universe has been arrested in New "York, but ho is not a New Vorkor. Ho is from Seattle, Wash* ington State, and when that city was alraosL destroyed by fire ho was given charge or the relief money to be distributed to the sufferers. Iu the course of distribution $13,000 of this money clunt; to bis hands, and being called to account, he fled. The Philadelphia Presst referring to the fact that bids for publishing the Legislative Record are now asked lor, says that "it would be better to abolish the I'.cji tint ice Record altogether than to have it go in the present slouchy and undeserving fashion." It would save the State thousands of dollars to abolish tho Record and as tho daily newspapers of the large cities give full reports of the Legislative proceedings it would not be missed. It is a noteworthy fact that during the two weeks the tariff bill was before the House, scores of speeches were made over it, some for and as many against it; some were against this or that clause; sugar, wool, tin plate, Mas, hosiery, lead and scores of other articles iu the bill all had their opponents, but a careful examination of th� Congressional Record shows that while almost everything in the bill was attacked, but two men said a word against the j'2 per pound duty ou foreign tobacaos. Thk principal streets of Lock Haven should be paved and the sooner it is done the better. In wot weather like wo have been having they are not only unsightly, but also unhealthy. It is' sheer wasto of the taxpayers money to continue the presort method of patch work on the streets. Tho first cost of paving would be somowhat expensive, but in tho end paving would prove cheaper than pavcb work. If City Council will pave but ono square each year it would bo better than to continue- tbo unsatisfactory work now being done every year. There has-bceu enough money wasted in this way during the past decade to pave the main thoroughfares in a substantial manner.

Pi it sin; nr., May 25.-Tho heaviest rain and electrical storm known iu years pass ed over a largo section of Western Penn sylvania this evening, doing groat damage to property aud re&ulting in the loss of several lives. The storm struck Pittsburg about 4 o'clock, but no serious damage was done in the old city. In tho east end, however, the wind played havoc. Houses wero blowu down, troes uprooted and I small buildings demolished. On Winebld-! die avenue five new frame houses wera lifted from their foundations and completely destroyed. The loss is $30,000. At McKeosport, hail stoues as largo as walnuts fell, while tho rain poured down in sheets for full half hour. Tho greatest injury was done by tho water which came down White's hollow iu a stream seventy-five feet wide. The water was five feet deep ou Fifth Avenue at a point below Centre street and a Dumber of houses which wero below the grade wore submerged. At Groonsburg, William Fryc, the gardener at St. Joseph's academy, was struck and instantly killed by lightning. Cellars aud basement kitchens are Hooded. Lightning also struck Colonel Huff's residence and the First Reformed Church and other buildings. Near Washington, Pa., lightning btruck a derrick on tho Colonel Robert Miller farm, shattering it and killing William Furman, single, seriously injuring William Gates and stunning two others. i A heavy land slide occurred at Oakdale, blocking the railroad tracks. The flood in j Mount's creek carried away many small buildings. | At Layten station an immense amount of mud, rocks and trees came down on the , Baltimore aud Ohio Railroad "tracks this evening, covering it fur a loug distance. At ScotuUle the storm was particularly ' destructive. Cellars along all the priuci pal streets are nearly filled with water. 1 The creek is rising steadily aud the safety of a couple railroad bridges between Scott-dale and Fairchance is endangered. The construction train has been ordered to the scene. A dispatch from Oil City, Pa., says:! Heavy rain falls almost steadily siuco last i midnight, raising the water in the river and creek, to the highest point sinco 1S33. The rise in the river has been at its highest average the last four hours, and stands j now at fourteen feet nine inches, a rise of j six feet since 10 a. m. Reports from all points up the river givo from five to eight'. inches higher. On account of the washout no railroad communications can bo held with Buffalo or Warren. Tho ground floors of the lower portiou of the town are flooded, including the basement of the oil exchange and the Derrick press room. At Wheeling, W. Va., about two and a half inches of rain fell iu twenty minutes, deluging tho streets and flooding a number of business houses in the cellars and on the first flours. In Pittsburg the heavy rain is likely to swell the river to flood proportions. At nil points along the Allegheny, Yough-iogheny aud Monougahcla rivers tho rainfall was unusual. Tho stage of tho water here this evening was thirteon feet and rising. A Flood in the River, Tho rains up river yesterday afternoon aud last night wero fully as heavy as they were hero iu tho momiug, and have caused tho river to riso considerably. This morning the water had reached tbo seven foot mark. At Clearfield this morn-itg a four and a foot flood was roportcd, and still raising. Rivermen here are of tho opinion that tho river will riso but 1 it- tlo, if any more, as tho present flood will have passed off before the Clearfield water reaches this place. Tho water in the river is very swift, and tho pocket boom, just outside tho Island, gave way under the pressure last night and upwards of a rail-lion and a half of Lock Haven saw logs went adrift. Tho logs passed into tho Williamsport boom this morning, just as Eric Mail train was passing. Thero aro no fears of any further loss of logs or timber, uuIcbh the river should get higher- which is not expected. PATTISON A CANDIDATE. rosl. 11 A lU tit ion. IH:m">uauti:ks John S.

Philadelphia, May 23.-A formal announcement of tho candidacy of Robert E, Pattison for tho Democratic nomination for Governor was made to-day through ex-Postmaster William F. Harrity. While speaking on the Democratic outlook Mr. Harrity said: "It has been stated in some localities that Mr. Pattison is not a candidate for Governor, and that if nominated he will not make an active campaign to win. This is a mistake, I happea to know authoritatively, and I speak advisedly when I say that Governor Pattison is a candidate, and will be to the end; that he will very much appreciate the honor of the nomination for Governor, and that when nominated he will promptly begin anjactive, energetic and aggressive campaign to lead tho party to victory as he did in 1S82." Pi am o ml DotleU. If the weather permits our people will have an opportunity of witnessing a good game of base ball on Monday afternoon, the first in several seasons. Lock Haven has always been notorious for her good ball players, and as one becomes expert and enters the professional arena, there has always been one to take his place. Petrikin, tho present twirler, is said to be a puzzler, and will worry the Danville boys considerably. Our boys will labor hard to win the first game, and your presence Monday will encourage them on to victory. The price of admission wilt be 25c; grand stand, 10c extra; boys 10c; ladies 10c, with free admission to grand stand. Milton comes on Wednesday next for two games, morning and afternoon. These games will no doubt prove interesting. Memorial Day will bring the Demorest club of Williamsport for a game in the afternoon. Shaffer and Gould, former members of tho old Lock Haven professional team, are members of the Demorest lub. A Large Yield. Last year mention was made in this paper of J. H. Fredericks receiving from fapan samples of buckwheat B�ed. The amount received was 20 quarts, which was sown on the farm of Mr. Fredericks, in Raid Eagle township. From the 20 quarts of seed 80 bushels of buckwheat was produced. The buckwhoat hangs in dusters ou the stalks and accounts for the large yield, which, with a morefavorabie season than last year, might have been even greater. Clothei Line Robbed. The clothes lino of a woman residing on Henderson-street, south of the railromd, waB stripped last night and a number of pieces of clothing stolen. Thero is no eluo to the thief. They Lett the Ark* Behind. BlackwelTs log drivers left their driving arks at this place and will use their boats between here and Williamsport.
