   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - June 2, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                # vetim. NINTH YEAK-NO. T9. LOCK HAVEN, PA., MONDAY. JUNE 2, 1890. PBICE-TWO GENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINSLOE BBOTHKBS---PPBLI8HF.B8 CURRENT COMMENT. Mrs. Cleveland is reported to be heir to Omaha land worth 150,000. If Henry M. Stanley survives the programme of banquets, Btretohing before him, he need not fear the perils of another African trip. Although Postmaster General Waua-maker is an ardent advocate of a postal telegraph service, and has tried to secure a partial one at least, all hope that one will be passed daring the present session of Congress seems to have vanished.. The oration of Senator Iogalls on the field of Gettysburg was by far the: most notable event in the Memorial Day exercises in Pennsylvania. It was a masterly and felicitous cfiort, at once epig-amtnat-io and it was, in the highest sense, worthy of the oooasion and the place. Speaker Reed has issued an order prohibiting the sale of intoxicating drinkB -over the bar of the House restaurant. Bnt persons are allowed to bo served with UquZ �*. meals taken in the restaurant. Insteaa^m^'k^ their drinks plain and straight, they will take them with bread and aoup._ The Census Enumerators begin their -work to-day and 1c another oolnmn we publish some of the inquiries that will be made by thorn. This list was received from the Census Department last week and the people should aid the enumerators in their work and not retard them by declining to answer questions. The enumerators are sworn to secrecy and private affairs revealed to them are to be kept secret.     _ Secretary Blaine has proposed that in accordanoe with a resolution passed at the Pan-Ameroan Conference, an "International American Bank" shall be established in this country, with branches in such South American countries where they may be deemed necessary. Suob a bank would 'be a great convenience to oar Importers, �who are now compelled to make their remittances through European banking Ji ousts.   _ Philadelphia Bulletin: The improvements in tho railway mail service under the business-like methods of Postmaster General Wanamakor are indicated in a report j ust published. The progress achieved under Superintendent Jackson in Pennsylvania, New lork, New Jersey, Virginia and Maryland is remarkable. In addition to many new mail trains on all the lines, the time of transit has been very materially shortened, the hours of delivery have been adjusted to the convenience of merchants and citizens, : and late and early collections facilitate the ' transportation of mail matter. Improved � schedules and the co-operation of the rail-i road companies have accomplished great : results. Much credit iB due for this result to Superintendent of the Railway Service  J. Lowrie Bell, to whom and to whose supervision the business interests of the country owe a debt of gratitnde. The ; postal service in all respeots has vastly improved under the supervision and direction of Mr. Wanamaker, but the railway branoh of the service specially so. JOUBJULI9TIC JOTTINGS. PORTER AND THE CENSUS The Supervisors All Thoroughly Prepared to Begin Their Work To-day. THE 0HE0NI0 DI8EASE QUESTION The "Red, White and Bine" memorial issue of the Elmira Telegram is as novel tss it Is appropriate. Testeiday'a Grit contaioed a full ao-connt of the Knights Templar Conolave among its numerous features. The Harrisburg Telegram contained portraits of a number of the most elaborately decorated buildings in this city on the oooasion of the conclave. Hazleton's two excellent dailies, The Plain Speaker and Sentinel, made their appearance last week as eight page papers and gave other evidences of improvement. Hazleton has cause to feel proud of her newspapers, as they are enterprising, wideawake, progressive and always on the outlook to further the interest* of the town. Tfie Pennsylvania Telegram is the name of a new Snnday paper published at Reading. J. il. Place, formerly of the Harrisburg lelegram. Is the publisher, and his name alone conneoted with the enterprise is sufficient guarantee of success. Mr. Place ia also the publisher of "Toe Story of Johnstown," a book which, we are pleased to note, has met with a big sale. The mammoth 20-page anniversary edition of the York JDitpalcJi is a dandy, and doubtless proved a pleasant surprise to its many readers. The numerous illustra-trations were sketched by tbeir special artist and engraved by the Ditpatch engraver. It required a ton and a half of paper to print the edition of ten thousand copies. The Dispatch is fourteen years old and one of the most progressive newspapers in the State. At its birth, we do not think there was a newspaper in the country that would have undertaken the teak that tba Ditpatch has to successfully carried through in its present anniversary number. Truly the world moves. Not Altogothar Compulsory-The Mortf �K� Question Mast bo [Answered-Criminals Will be Compelled to Answer Trnthrallj -Those WiUrally Unloading Will be Froseented io tho United Suites Courts. Washington, June 1.-Robert P. Porter, superintendent of the census, has received telegrams from abont one hundred of the supervisors stating that they were thoroughly prepared to enter upon the work of taking the census to-morrow morning and that everything was in readiness to push the work forward with accuracy and rapidity, air. Porter intimated very plainly this evening that so far as the chronic disease questions were concerned it was not the intention of the office to endeavor to bring to punishment those who were reluctant to make answers, but as to the "mortgage" question be held language not quite so cheering for those who bad determined not to answer this part of the schedule, though the possibility is strong that nothing will be done with recalcitrants on this matter. He expreaaed him self very earnestly, however, with regard to bringing the law to bear upon those who wilfully refused to answer all questions put to them by the enumerators. They will be compelled to answer, he said, or to take the consequences of their refusal. He thought there was a possibility that members of the criminal classes might take advantage of the fight made against the diseases and mortgage questions to refuse any information whatever to the enumerators, and he stated that this would not be tolerated under any circumstances. THE   CENSUS. This is the Day for the Enumerator* to ' Begin  Work. The taking of the eleventh census of the United States will be began to-day. Unole Sam "rounds up" the stock on his farm once every ten years, and this time he proposes to go into detail as he never went into them before. But, ladies, even if yon have passed the "forty" mark and still remain spinsters, don't get angry when the enumerator asks you your age and whether you are married or aingle. All this may be none of his business, but be knows that just as well as you do. But he is paid to ask just such questions, so instead of telling him that it is none of his business and threatening him with a pail of water, why, just quietly answer him. He don't care whether you are eighteen or forty-eight, and no one who does aare will ever know from him. There are a number of questions to which Uncle Sam has kindly affixed the clause "you need not answer." So if perchance you are asked whether you are deformed or crippled or defective in mind or suffering from a ohronio disease, don't pay any attention to the question unless you want to say "No 1" TJnole Sam is cer tainly over particular on this point. You will find the enumerators very gentlemanly fellows, kind, sympathetic and obliging. But do not pour your woes Into j their ears or go extensively into your fam-1 ily history. They would all like to bear this, no doubt, but you see, they will have too much ground to cover to give your case the attention that might otherwise be given. It might not be a bad idea for each family to prepare a list of the persons in their household so that when the census taker oomes around there will not be any unnecessary delay. Remember that each one of yon forms a unit that goes to make up as a whole this glorious commonwealth and you shonld feel proud of it. Determined to Commit Suicide. Wileesbakbe, Jane 1.-James Shsugh-nessy, who shot himself on Friday io front of bis house on account of bis wife refusing birr admittance, was taken to the city hospital in a dying condition last night. While the nurses were temporarily absent from his room be arose, and after potting on his clothes made bis esoape, and up to this evening has not been found. It is feared that he went to the river, a short dlstaooe from the hospital, and .finally ended his life by drowning. COURTING THE PEOPLE. Fool Floy Suspected. Chicago, June 1.-The body of an acrobat named Murdoch, who has been missing sinoe Friday, waa fonnd floating today in the river dead. Fire wounds on the head indicate murder. Murdoch's watoh and a large Bum of money, said to have been in his possession, are missing. The disappearance of Murdooh waa very promptly reported by his partner, West. The latter left tho olty, saying he was going to Racine. The police have telegraphed to that city asking that West be arretted. Some of the Inquiries to be Hade by the Census Enumerators In Jane. The Eleventh Census of the United States will be taken during the month of J una.  The census enumerators will begin their work-on Monday, June 3, and will visit evefy honse and ask questions concerning every person and every family in the United States. The questions that will be asked call for the name of every person residing in the United States on the first dayiof June, with their sex and age, and whether white, black, mulatto, quad roon, octoroon, or Chinese, Japanese, or Indian, ilnquiry will be made also of every peijson as to whether they are single, married,! widowed, or divorced, and, if married,! whether married   during the year.  Tie place of birth of each person, and thai place of birth of tho father and motier of each person, will also be called for, as well as a statement as to the profession, trade, or occupation followed and the; number of months unemployed during the census year.  For all persona ten years of age or over a return must bo made byj the enumerator as to the nnmber able to read and write, and also the nnmber that can speak English.  For those who can! not speak English the particular langusgi or dialect spoken by them will be ascertained.  For children of school age, also, the nnmber of months they attended school will be recorded by the census enumerators.  Io the case of mothers an inquiry will be made as to the number of children they have had, and the number of these children living at the present time. This inquiry is to be made of all women   who   are   or   have been married, including all who are widows or have been divorced.    Foreign-born males of adult age, that is, 21 years of age or over, will be asked as to the number of years they have been in the United States, and whether they are naturalized or have taken out naturalization papers.   Of the head of each family visited the question will be asked as to the number of persons in the family, and whether his home is owned or hired ; also, if owned, whether the borne is iree from mortgage incumbrance. If the head of the family is a farmer, similar inquiries will bo made concerning the ownership of the farm. In addition to these inqniries, all of which are made on the population schedule, the law under whioh the census is taken makes provision for special inquiries concerning such of the population as may be mentally or physically defective in any respect, that is, insane, feeble-minded, deaf, blind, or orlppled, or who may be temporarily disabled by sickness, disease, or accident at the time of the enumerator's visit.  Certain special inquiries will also be made concerning inmates of prisons and reformatories and of charitable and benevolent institutions.  Besides this, a statement will be called for concerning all persons who have died during the census year, giving their name, age, sex, occupation, and cause of desth. This orfioial count of the people aomes bnt once in ten years, and every family and every person should oonsider it to be tbeir duty to answer the questions of tho census enumerators willingly and promptly, so that definite and accurate information may be gained concerning the 05,000,-000 people living within the bounds of this great country.

THE ECHOS OF TOWN TALK local litems Taken From Oar Beporter's Hots Book happenings seen by tee express FOB TBI WEST BBAHOH. At the AdventUts CamO-The Island Bridge -Children's Day Exercises-Sunday Schotl F*�ttval-A~X*w Chief of Folio* -A Child Badly Bcaldad-Tha Cyclorama Moves to Wllliamsport, There was a constant stream of people all day yesterday going and coming from the Adventists camp at Caatanea. The tents are pitched in a delightful spot and the services conducted in the main pavilion were well attended and the remarks of the speakers closely listened to. A choir accompanied by an organ added an additional oharm to the services. The camp-meeting proper does not open until tomorrow when services will be held, morning, afternoon and evening. It promises to be largely attended. A New Chief or Police. Mayor Mason this morning appointed W. J. Westbrook as Chief of Police, to succeed W. S. Chatham, resigned. The Mayor administered the oath of office to the new Chief and he at once entered npon his duties. There were several applicants for the position and there i8 naturally considerable criticism at the action of a Republican Mayor appointing a Democrat as Chief of Police; r Mr. Westbrook formerly served as Chief for several years and ta well acquainted with the duties of the office. The so-called meteorthat lodged on the farm of Judge Mayer, jolt below the city limits, turns out to be a large piece of Iron. It is said that the iron was thrown by a blast at the city quarry a few days ago on to the farm. The quarry is located on the south side of Bald Eagle oreek, qnite a distance from the farm, and the work of blasting stone for street purposes has been in progress for several weeks. The Island.Bridge. The bridge builders commence to-day putting np the trestle work on which the new iron bridge at the east end of Great Island will rest. The flood in the river has subsided sufficiently to allow the work of construction to proceed, and as the iron is bII on the ground the erection of the bridge will proceed rapidly. Children's Day Exercises. Children's day will be observed with appropriate exercises to the occasion by the Beeoh Creek Presbyterian Sunday school next Sunday afternoon at three o'clock. The pastor will deliver an address and an interesting program will be rendered. There 'will be no regular evening service. A Child Badly Scalded. Bertha Weiee, the little seven-year-old daughter of August Weise, East Main street, was badly scalded early this morning by oversetting a pail of boiling water and receiving the contents on her body and lower limbs. The little girl's sufferings were intense until rolieved by Dr. Ball. It is better for a young man to have hia trousers bag at the knees than to have bis brains bag at the ears. LATE  RENOVO LOCAJ.B. Renoyo, May 81, 1800. August Selberg, who resides on Ontario avenue, between 7th and 8th streets, met with a very serious and painful acoident yesterday forenoon. While standing near his son, who was ohopping wood, a hemlock knot flew from the wood and struck him in the left eye. Dr. Fulmer dressed the wound and thinks the sight may not be injured. Mr. Isaao and William Gates left here on mall Thursday night for Snow Shoe to attend the funeral of their father, James Gates, who died very suddenly on Thursday, In the 58th year of his age. The funeral took place Sunday morning from bis late home. Samuel F. Dieder, of the machine shop, e/bile holding a steel bar for a fellow workman to strike a few days ago, received a blow, from a heavy sledge, in the right side, wbioh has confined him to his home for a few days. Two Games This Week. Manager Bickford expects to have two games of ball this week, one with the Re-novo club on Wednesday and the other with Willfamsport on Friday. The dates are not positively fixed yet. These games should attraot big audiences, as they will no doubt be among the best of the season. The Enumerators. The census enumerators for the four wards of Lock Haven, A. J. Schuyler, Dr. Vandersloot, Thomas Yardley and- Capt. G. T. MiohaelB, began their wcrk this morning and as tbeir time is limited it is hoped that the people will promptly answer the inquiries. , The Cyclorama Moves to Wllliamsport. The Cyclorama of Gettysburg, under the management of E. A. Fancher, removed from this city to-day to Williamsport, where it wilt be exhibited in Ross -Park for the benefit of the Soldiers Monument Fund.      _ Leaving Town. Mr. McCrory, proprietor of the 5 and 10 cent store, is paoking his goods to-day for removal from the oity. The room he will vacate will be occupied by Mr. Frank Harder. Dir. McCrory intends taking a trip to Oregon, Sunday School Festival. A festival will be given at Maokeyville on Saturday, June 7tb, for the benefit of the Sunday school library. Let there bo a full attendance of all interested in the welfare of the Sunday school. DiecuMlng the Subject. The subject for disoussion at the meet iug of the Young People's Alliance of Trinity M. E. ohuroh last night was 'dancing." As usual there was two aides to the question. Congressman McCormick Looks After It in Congress, From the Wllliamsport Bepuffllcan. While CongreBS has been passing its River and Harbor appropriation bill from year to year, many people who live along the West Branoh of the Susquehanna river and from year to year see the banks of the Stream being out away by the floods, have wondered why Congress did not pay Bomo attention to the matter. Thanks to the efforts of our representative in Congress, Hon. H. C. McCormick, Congress has taken some notice of the matter, and on last Wednesday passed an amendment to the River and Harbor appropriation bill wbiob will without question result in legislation that will provide protection from the floods of the future. Page 67 of the River and Harbor bill as reported by the committee reads: That the Secretary or War is authorized and directed to appoint a board of three officers of the Corps of Engineers, United States army, whose duty It will be to thoroughly examine obstructions to navigation in the Hudson river, between New York City and the State dam at Troy, N. Y., and report a project and estimate of the cost of widening and deepening said river between New York City and the city of Albany, and also between New York City and the Bute dam at the city of Troy for the navigation of sea-going vessels drawing twenty feet of water, and also a separate estimate of the expense of improving the river between New Baltimore and the State dam at Troy, to such an extent as to secure a navigable channel twelve feet deep at mean low water. Said board shall accompany their report with a statement as to the usefulness of such improvements and of their relations and value to commerce, and of the advisability of entering upon the same atthls time; and the Secretary of War shall transmit Bald reports to Congress with his own views and those of the Chief of Engineers United States army thereon, and tbeexpenses of said board shall be paid out of ihe appropriation made in this act for the improvement of the Hudson river, not to exceed 110,000. In the meantime Mr. McCormick had gone before the committee and called the attention of the members to the condition of various points along the West Branch of the Susquehanna, and Mr. Henderson, of Illinois, who is a member of the committee, offered the following amendment, which was agreed to: The West Branch of the Susquehanna river, in the State of Pennsylvania, in order to ascertain if the navigation of said rivor can be materially and permanently Improved by the construction of an embankment or otherwise: such survey also to be made with a view or ascertaining the best practicable method of confining the waters of said river in times of great floods to the general conrse of its channel." The passage of this bill will result in a visit to the West Branoh by a board of three officers of the Corps of Engineers of the United States army, who will ascertain if the navigation of the river oan be materially and permanently improved by the construction of an embankment or otherwise. The engineers will shortly make an investigation and report upon it and the probabilities are that their reoommanda-tions will result in an appropriation from Congress for the purpose of making the improvements recommended. It ia certain that Congress could not more sensibly aot and the aotion of Congressman McCormick in this matter will meet with much commendation all along the West Branoh. Ha Had "Filosophy." From Detroit Free Press. Out about four miles from Natchez, I came across a colored man who had beaded for town with a jag of wood on a one-mule wagon. At a narrow spot in the road, where the mud waa a foot deep, his old mole had given out and the wagon was stalled. The man sat on a log by the roadside, smoking a corn-oob pipe and enjoying a sun-bath, and after viewing the situation I asked: "Well, what are yon going to do?" "Nuffin' boss, he answered. "Going to leave the rig right then until it sinks ont of sight ?" "Oh, she's dun gone down abont as fur as she kin." "And yon are in no harry ? "No, sah. I'ze got all dia week to get to town." "Well you take things pretty cool I must say." "Say, boss, jist sot down heah half an honr an' see de filosophy of de thing," he answered, "I'ze working a common sense plan on dis difficulty." I got down and took a seat; and it wasn't ten minutes before a cotton team, with four darkies perched on the bales, oame up from the rear. "Yo', dar-what's de rumpus I" demanded the driver as he oheoked his mules. "Dun got stuck faBt." "Oh-bo! Gome along, boys, an' git dat ole mewl outer his trubble." They all got down, each took a wheel, and with a "heave o" the wagon waa lifted out of the mud and was ready to go on. "Seo de pint ?" queried the owner of the rig, who hadn't lifted a pound himself. "I do." "Dat's what ails de black man to-day- hain't got no filosophy. Ha-haw, now, Julius-get right up'n bend yore old hack-bone! So long, white man-see yo* later!" MARKED III THE OPEN AIR Women  With Lighted  Tapera Around the Weeping Bride. Circle UNITED BENEATH A GOLDEK CANOPY On a Pottstown Lawn In tho Presence ol Over One Thousand Spectator,-Foril Play Suspected-Determined to Commit Suicide-Tea Games This Week-A Lost Pocket Book. Pottstown, June 1.-An open air Hebrew wedding here this afternoon attracted over 1,000 spectators, including Burgess Todd, a nnmber of town Councilmen and other borough officiate. The groom waa Herman Friedman, lately of New York, and the bride Miss Annie EBlrichen, of Pottstown. The oeremony took place under an old gold canopy on the lawn of the Pottstown residence of James W, Ward, the well-known circus clown of Philadelphia. A Hebrew string orchestra furnished music at the home of the bride's father, Samuel Estrioben, before the exeroises began, and a number of women with lighted tapera circled around the bride, who, attired in a lead colored' silk, sat weeping in a chair. The bridal party then walked to the scene of the oeremony, which inoluded a wedding march by the bride and . bridesmaids and the groom, a chant by the officiating rabbi, P. J. Cahn, in which the Hebrew spectators joined, the drinking of wine and the placing of a ring by the groom npon his bride's finger. The bridesmaids were: Mrs. Adolph Marko-witz and Mrs. Emanuel Schwartz, and the husbands of these ladies were groomsmen. Guests were present from New York, Philadelphia, Reading and other plaoes, and the array of presents was very large and costly. --  --- Evaporation rrom Trees. W. H, Murray in the Boston Herald. If any'of my readers next June will put the end of a bough of some maple tree into a pint bottle and stop the mouth of the bottle with wax, bo that no vapor may escape, he will see in a few momenta the inside of the bottle beoomo . clouded, and in about half an hour small drops will begin to form on the glass and run downward to the bottom, and at the end of several hours he will disoover tbat he has from 12 to 20 grains of water deposited in the bottle. Now, a maple tree of eight or ten inches diameter, well formecLand growthful, has on the average, 25,000 leaves on it and it is a safe computation to'say that Suah a tree would throw off in the Bpace of every twelve hours 340,000 grains weight, of water. Now an acre .will easily contain 600 or 700 such trees, and aa theweight of one pint of water is 7,000 grains, troy weight, it will be found upon calculation that from a single acre of forest land 3,-875 gallons of pure water are thrown "off and distributed through the body of the surrounding atmosphere in every twelve hours. If this seems incredible to you I oan assure yon that it seems so only beoavse yon have no knowledge of trees. You probably have been acoustomed to look upon them as collections of uuforceful bulk, whereas they are aotive creatures and ore forever at work. In one form or another they are always busy, and of tbem it may truly bo said that tShej* not only adorn the landscape, bdt they rule the atmosphere. They arc thoroughly vital formations, and are always in aotion. They are as full of sluices and ohannelB as the human body is of veins, and the tidal movement going on beneath their bark is one of prodigious force. Tho amount of water that their normal condition demands for their circulation is so great that only knowledge oan credit it. But, once apprehended,i.t becomes in truth a key whioh unlocks many of the closed doors behind which are concealed the mysterious changes now going on year after year in our New England olimate. PERSONAL   FKSrCILIHai. Tho Lost Pocket Books. Sinoe the Knights Templar oonglave Is ended and the excitement has subsided the work of piokpookets is being gradually made known. Why no information was given of the losses at polioe headquarters is not known. It is said tbat a man was arrested at Sunbnry who had quite a number of watches in his possession. Whether this report is oorreot or not is not known,, but if it Is, the watcheB wore probably stolen in Look Haven. More Blnthes. Bellefonte Keystone Gazette. The Lock Haven ExrnEss on Tnesday afternoon, issued a very elegant double number, printed on pink paper.
