WAS IT MURDER OB SUICIDE ? i   "V" CURRENT COMMENT. The opposition to the lottery grab in Louisiana seems to be strengthening, de spite the efforts and freely spent boodle of the lottery sharks. This is encouraging for those who wish Louisiana well. TnE best policy for any man to adopt is that whioh winB his own approval. W hen one's consoience is satisfied the opinions of others, even if adverse, causa little un. happiness. Whereas the most unhappy of mortals is he who bas lost bis own self-respect and despises himself. The city of Ogden, out by the great Bait Lake, in Utah, proposes to hold a grand carnival during the first week of July, suoh as was held in New Orleans during Mardi Oras. It will be something new in that far away country, but Ogden is a city of great enterprise and greater ambition.__ New Mexico is a coming sister iu Uncle Sam's family of States, but she will have to grow a little before entering. The next census may give her the necerary certificate. For some time past she has been behaving very well and her manners are very greatly improved from what they were a few years ago. Stanley is having all the honors, and is given the full confidence of Englishmen, commencing at tbe top-the Queen. Among other honors that fail thick and fast on him, he has been given the degree of LL. D. from Camridge. In addressing the London Chamber of Commerce he told Englishmen more truth about what they had lost by failing to act, and about what they would gain by still acting promptly, than they ever dreamed of. The money cost of tbe grippe to the insurance companies of this country has been greater than is suspected. Twenty-nine companies report that their losses during tbe first quarter of tbe present year was twenty-two per cent, mora than during the corresponding quarter of the previous year, and as there was no other wide-spread epidemic or disease but the grippe, they attribute tbe inurease to the ravages of tbe latter. It is estimated the disease carried off nearly or quite 20,000 yfersons in this uountry. Blushing-, That's All. DnBoIs Courier. Tbe Look Haven Express caught tbe spirit of tbe hour and oame out with an attractive new bead and printed on pink voer in honor of ihe conclave of Knights *j,t)Ur now being held at that place.

Yesterday's Lock Haven Express came to us in S-page form and in all the glory of pink paper in honor of the Enigbta Templar conclave now in session in that ity. Besides a full and interesting account of tbe preparations made to receive tbe visitors and a program of the parade and other public proceedings, there was an excellent piotnre of the Juvenile Band of Renovo, a Clinton county organization of which its citizens are justly proud. Tbe Express is always abreast of the times. Kenovo vea*s. Tbe_jk Haven Express last evening consisted of eight pages, and was printed on pink paper.  It had a full page devoted .to the Knights Templars,  which will prove an excellent guide for everyone in the city as to time and place for the important events of tbe conclave.  On the first page, also, a ont of the Renovo Juvenile Band, with a sketch of the organization. The issna is one of the handsomest ever mblisbed in Lock Haven, and shows that ^Messrs. Kinsloe Brothers are alert and vigilent journalists. Altoona Mirror. The Lock Haven Express came to us for the last two days "thoroughly impregnated with the spirit of the occasion (tbe grand couclave of the Knights Templar) and partakes somewhat of the carmine hue that is visible on all sides," ut Lock Haven. Our brethren, tbe Kinsloes', are an energetic set of fellows, and though not attempting to "paint tbe town red," are endeavoring to bo up with tbo times, rush, grit and illuminations will tell eventually, and the other fellows will try to follow you, though it be afar off. York DlBpalch. The Lock Haven Extbe^S painted that town red Monday and Tuesday. It issued � double page edition on pink paper giving details of the Kuigbts Templar Conclave. It wag a fine edition and in keeping with the push and enterprise of that ably conducted newspaper, The Kimblei Hystesy at Montreal Partially Cleared Up. FINDING THE BODY IN A EESEEV01B, The Young- Engllehmen Disappeared lout April, and the Case Looks Uke m Repetition ot tne Benwell Tragedy-A Theory of the Detectives That Look. Plausible -The Throat of the If an Cat. Montreal, May 28.- The mystery which surrounded the fate of the young Englishman, T. 8. Kimber, who disappeared from tbe Grand Central Hotel last April, was dispelled in a degree by the hading of his body this morning in a high level reservoir, whioh supplies the.upper part of the eity with water. Tbe body was much decomposed, and was reoogaiz-able only by the clothing. There was a wound about five inehes long across the neck penetrating the wind pipe, and on tbe left side of the.throat were three small wounds, hut only akin deep. In tbe coat pockets were'' three stones weighing about five pounds each. In the other pockets were found two pocket knives, a pouch of tobacco, oorkaorew, watch, chain, lead pencil and fifteen cents in silver. Thomas S. Kimber, a young Englishman, arrived in Canada from Topsham, Exeter, England, per steamer Barnia, on the 15th of April. He took quartan in the hotel of Thomas Styles, and after a heavy boot of drinking he suddenly disappeared. Blood was fonnd in his room when the door was forced open, and a razor covered with hair and blood was discovered. There were and are still two theories as to his disappearance, namely, suicide and murder, and the jury at to-day's inquest inclined to the former theory. Tbe general impression is that the young Englishman met with foul play. Detective Grose, who had been employed by tbe Dominion Government on Kimber's case, thinks it a clear case of murder, and bas so reported to tbe Dominion Government. Major Sherwood, ohief of the secret service at Ottowa, was notified by his Montreal agent of the finding of the body, and be thinks It another Benwell case. The whole evidence of Benwell points to this view of the case. Tbe question is how tbe man, could have possibly out his throft to tbe extent of five inches, quietly leave the eity and hotel on St. James street, at one o'olock In the morning and with a bloody towel around his neck, weak with the loss of blood, stagger up tbe streets tbat lead to the mountain, climb tbe steep hill to tbe reservoir, surmount the iron railing tbat surrounds it and plunge into tbe water. Even bad big strength held oat to perform this extraordinary feat it is pointed out tbat tbe strange and ghastly appearance presented by the man must have attraoted special attention from some of tbe numbers of persons tbat he must have passed on his journey. The medical authorities affirm that this would be impossible, and the detectives scout the idea. There is much criticism of the method of holding tbe inquest-The jury was composed of working men, taken from the street, and found a verdiot of suicide before tbe post mortem examination was made. It is almost certain tbat the unfortunate Englishmen met with foul play. BASE   bali.  RECORD. The Three Organizations and Their Standing; to Date. NATIONAL LEAGUE.

The metorto atone was found yesterday in a corn field by the man who works the farm. A chip broken from tbe aerolite, shown to a representative of the Efpress, bad a resemblance to Iron ore, and was very heavy. The aerolite is not large, yet it was all tbe farmer could do to roll it over. If the report is correct, and there seems to be no reason tor doubting: the itatement of tbe person from w horn the information was received, the aerolite will be brought to this city for exhibition and wilt be a great curiosity. CLOSE OF THE CONCLAVE. The Sir Knights "Return Home Well Pleased With Their Treatment M0EE FESnVTHEs LAST ETCHING. The 9ffr. Olivet Coinmondery, of Erie, Honor tbe Hospitaller With a Reception at the Central Hotel-A   Splendid   Band-An Aerolite Falle~No Paper To-Morrow. Notice to Hope He*e. The thirty seventh annual conclave of the Knights Templar, of Pennsylvania is ended and the visiting Sir Knights have departed for their homes again. The decorations aro being taken down and Look Haven is settling back to its usual every day life. The closing scenes of tbo con-clave were enaoted at the Opera House yesterday afternoon when the public installation took place. Several of tbe com-manderies remained .until late in tha evening and Mt. Olivtft Commandery, No. 30, of Erie, remained until this morning when they left on Erie Mail. So far as can be learned the visitors were well pleased with tbe manner in which they were entertained. Lock Haven did its beBt to make the conclave a sue-oesB and to care for all who oame in a hospitable manner. How well the work was done was apparent from the remarks of the visitors, not one of whom was heard to express dissatisfaction. reception last night. Mt. Olivet Commandery, No. 30, of Erie, held a reoeption at the Central Hotel, their headquarters, last night, for Hospitaller Commandery. There were many ladies in attendanoeand there was tbe best of social feeling among those present. Refreshments were served and the Mas-sauga Band gave a concert during the evening. The hand rendered a number of choice selections, whioh were highly appreciated. A Splendid Band. The Massauga Point Band, of Erie, which accompanied the Erie Commandery to this city, was one orthe many excellent bands here during tte conclave. The leader is Joseph Sommerhill, and the band is composed of only fourteen pieces. The music rendered was. exceedingly fine and many were the compliments paid to the musicians. The Massauga Band is an organization formed of musicians who spend the summer at Mesaauga Point, a summer resort near Erie. The band was organized last winter for the coming soason, and their first appearance in public since the reorganization was in this city. At the Armory Last Night. The ball given by Hand-in-Hand Hose Company in the Armory, last night, was a brilliant and successful affair, and were it not-for the fact that the Reception'of the Dight previous was Buch a grand social event the Hand-in-Hand ball would have been considered the greatest success of the season. There was a large attendance, and tbe best of ordxr was maintained. Shipment of Tobacco. Tobacco buyers from Lancaster county are now circulating among tbe farmers in this county making purchases ot the tobacco crop of 1889. A shipment was made yesterday, and from present appearances there is likely to be a small "boom" in the tobacco market. So far as can be learned good prices are being realized by tbe growers. Attention, Company H. All members of Company H, by order of Captain Brown, will meet at the Armory this evening for drill and to porfeot arrangements for Decoration Day. The company will report to Lieut. J. D. Mo-Clintook, who will have command of the company on Decoration Day, a Conductor Killed. Edward Bishop, yard conductor in the Emporium railroad yard, was struck by an engine on Monday and instantly killed. His body was literally torn to piocos, and is said to have been a ghastly sight. He was about 35 years of age and leaves a wife and seven children. The Rattle of Gettysburg;. Those who have not yet visited the Cyc lorama of Gettysburg should go and see tbe celebrated exhibition as it will shortly be removed to another city. A lecture on the battle and tbe scenes portrayed on tbe canvass is given' every hour. The Home Team Plaj Ball Yesterday a* If They Meant It. The Milton club arrived here yesterday morning prepared to take two gamas from the Look Haven boys, but this they were unable to do, as last night our boys carried two Milton scalps in their belts. The morning game was a farce, Lock Haven winning as they pleased,- by the score of 20 to 7. Hoffoer and ShinebouBe.of the Danvilles, remained over to play with our boys doing the battery work in the morning, and had Milton at their mercy until Lock Haven bad the game well in hand. Hoffner let up to rest bis arm, hav ing pitohed three games in succession. Mark Clair, formerly of Flemington, Pa., tried to pitch and the way onr boys pound ed his delivery must have made his heart ache. They hit him when and where tbey pleased. In the afternoon Milton put Musgrove in to pitch and he pitched a niee game but Petrikin pitched better, and in fact all of the Lock Haven boys played ball as though they meant it. Petrikin struck out nine of the Miltons. Lock Haven now has a first-class amateur club. They have played four games this week, winning two, and one of the otherB was one of the finest ever played in this eity. To-morrow they taokle the Demorest Club, of Williamsport, The Williamsport boys will present Shaffer and Gould, two old'Lock Haven boys, as battery.

The Students Gny the Clrcns People, Give Vent to Their War Whoop and a Pitched Battle Tollows-Ten students and as Many of the Clmut Men Now in the nands of Sargjeoni. Dntboit, May 28.-A special to the Journal from Ann Arbor says that during a performance of Franklin's circus there last evening, three bnndred students from the State University guyed the show. When the performance was finished and most of tbe audience dispersed, tbe students who remained in the tent tn a bunob, gave the college yell, N. of M. This demonstration was at once followed by an attack from about twenty circus men, armed with clubs, wbo advanced with their war ory "bey you." The students, surprised by the attack, fell back with several broken heads, but soon rallied. In the melee several shots were fired and a oircus man dropped, sfaot in the shoulder. It is said that ten students and as many circus men are in tbe hands of physicians. Several arrests of both circus men and students have occurred. None of the injuries are supposed to be fatal. There is intense excitement at Ann Arbor. THE SUMMER AT ATLANTIC CITY. The Cempmeetinar. TJje Seventh Day Adventists campmeet-ing has been almost lost sight' of in the bustle and excitement attending the con-olave. The large pavilions and many of the smaller tents have been erected, and public services known as "preparatory services" are held daily. More tents have been ordered and it is expected that by June 3d, the day - the campmeeting proper commences, there will he between1 four and live hundred delegates to tbe general conference encamped on the grounds. To-morrow evening temperance servioes will be hold in the large tent The T.ast Log Drive. Tbe Kettle Creek log drive, which is the only drive baok yet, was not out of the creek into the main stream yesterday afternoon but it was expected the drive would reach the river last night, and is likely to reach the boom on the present flood. Boom Boss McNornoy estimates tbe number of logs now in the boom at fifty million feet, and says there is a good ruu of Lock Haven logs. Unless a destructive flood comes to carry tho logs adrift, a good summer's sawing for the mills in this olty is assured, State College Klection. The annual meeting to elect live Trustees of the State College, will be held in the cbapel ofitho institution, Wednesday, June 25, at 2 p. m. The Clinton Oounty Agricultural Society will send delegates to tbo election. Railroading on Beech Cieek.

Take a half holiday to-morrow and go ont and see the game of base ball. A Deserved Compliment. .The Williamsport Qatette and BulUtin of yesterday, in making mention of the handsome decorations in this city paid the following deservod compliment to a well known business man; "The Frauoiaoua drug store also presented expensive decorations, and as beautiful aa tbe interior of the store, whioh is saying a great deal, ai the store is considered one of tbe grandest, in its Interior arrangements, outside of the large cities." Election of Chief Engineer. Monday evening next tbe Presidents and Foremen of tbe different fire com panics in tbe city will meet with tbe Fire Committee of City Council for the purpose of electing a Chief Engineer and Assistant Chief. There are several candidates for the office of Chief Engineer, and at least one from each company. The Pennsylvania Railroad's Great Facilities for Travel. The prospeota for a brilliant summer season at Atlantic City were never so bright as at the present time. The extraordinary liberal patronage which it has gained during the winter and spring season, largely due to the magnificent transportation facilities maintained by the Pennsylvania Railroad, is still manifesting itself in tbe well-filled hotels, which bid fair to hold their visitors well through the ..early summer season. The city by the' sea is in better condition to entertain and amuse its friends than ever before. New hotels have been built, and older ones remodeled and enlarged. The great ocean boulevard has been completed, so that Atlantic City now posesses the handsomest and most attractive ocean front of any seaside resort in America. All indications point to the largest summer season in the history of the place. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company baa kept well in tbe line with the Bpirit of improvement which has prevaded the seashore. Its facilities for promptly and comfortably handling large numbers of people have been increased so at to supply any possible demand; the road-bed of its double line has been improved greatly, and the terminal facilities both at Philadelphia and Atlantic City have been enlarged and improved. The betterment of the tracks will enable tbe management to materially reduce the time between the Delaware River and the sea, and the summer schedule will present tbe quiokest, best equipped, safest and most satisfactory aervioe ol trains for everybody ever enjoyed by the hosts of Atlantic City's summer patrons. Tbe comprehensive system of excursion tickets leading from all points on the Pennsylvania Systen will be availiable, as in the past year at the exceptionally low rates that have heretofore prevailed. It would he well for our readers to remember tbat a summer trip that does not include Atlantic City lacks the spice that would make it memorable. Death of � Veteran. George M. Peok, a veternan of the late war, died this morning at the residence of his son, R. D. Peck, Main street, after a lingering illness. The deceased was aged 0 years, and served in the war of the rebellion as a member of Company D, 45tb Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers, of which Austin Curtin was captain.
