   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - June 10, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                NINTH YEAR-NO. 8(3. LOCK HAVEN, PA., TUESDAY. JUNE 10, 1890. PKICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINBLOE BROTHERS - .JtWI"T CURRENT COMMENT. It i� asserted .that �20,000,000 have been expended by the British syndicate in purchasing American breweries. la Maine the Democrats bavo decided to take their stand against prohibition. Ef-forts heretofore to oonvert the party to tbat Hide have failed, but now the leaders have plucked up oourage to make a stand Ik Kansas and wherever the "Alliance" organization has seemed to prosper, the formers are standing aloof from it. The Alliance is likely to be a shortlived affair there. What is true iu Kansas is likely to be equally true in other States. Therb is a Freneb invention for ascertaining the rate of the speed of railroad trains. The mechanism connects the road bed and the train, wbercby a meter is set going when the train moves. In this way a register is kept that indicates accurately the train's rate of speed. The* convention which renominated Speaker Reed for Congress, took a vote oa the question of Presidential candidates and it was found tbat the speaker had 118 and James G. Blaine 2. This would seem to indicate that there has been a decided change in the matter of favorite sons in the Fine Tree State. All the work of Congress, the Uuited Slates Courts, and the special commission to put down Mormouism will prove of little avail while Europe is being aoonred for recruits to the gospel of polygamy and hundreds of dupes are continually being brought in by Mormon missionaries. Why not strike at the root of the evil by prohibiting such immigration? Tns Chicago Herald declares that "the most extensive, if not the most oppressive monopoly in the United States is that establishment of the Pullman Car Company. Every person who travels ia obliged to pay tribute to it." The profits of the oar monopoly are immense. In the light of of business as it .should be conducted, these profits should go to the roads, then the roads could afford to rBduoe the rates of travel and freight. The decision in the suit of the nephew of tbe late Samuel J. Tilden, brought to invalidate the trust clause of the will, in favor of the contestant, indicates that New York will lose tbe immense legacy wbioh he provided for it. This shows the wisdom of engaging in tbe work of philanthropy, like George Peabody and Peter Cooper, dnring their lives, for if tbe will of so shrewd a lawyer and able a man as Mr. Tilden fails to express his views sufficiently to realize bis intentions, then there is little safety in any testamentary instrument which provides Tor pbilathro-pio distribution of property. Asothxs evidence is furnished of Great Britain's general policy of encouraging foreign^trade relations. That government has just granted a subsidy of $40,500 to a oompany laying a oable between Halifax and Bermuda, a distance of eight hundred and saventy-fonr miles, which will doubtless rorm the basis ot still further operations and extensions in whose use the government will be largely benefited as well as the company itself. This policy Indicates the recognition of the theory urged by Mr. Blaine tbat adeqnato means of communication and transportation must precede commerce. Whenever a oompany or a Eteamship line proposes to run vessels or to construct a cable England always stands ready to grant subsidies in aid of tbe enterprise, satisfied from invariable lesnlts that ultimate gain will accrue to British merchants and to the nation at large in times of war as well as in those of peaoe. A New Music Box. A new music box was received at the Fallon House lsst evening. It ia iuiieed a handsome instrument, of tbe Swiss model and has four cylinders, each one playing six airs. It also has a zither attachment and la as large as tbe one tbat was in the restaurant same time ago. Mr. Schuyler Is bound to keep the cafe attached to tbis popular hostelry in the front ranks. Bend Ftitlval. An ice antra and oaks festival will be held next Saturday evening, June 14, by tbe Axe Makers Band of Hill Hall, in the public hall at that place. Give the boys a liberal patronage. 200 Reward. Four prisoners asoaped from the l'otta-ville prison on Sunday last and a reward at *200 is offered by J. J. Toole, the warden of the prison, for their arrest and detention. Hope Hose Heeling. Tbe regular meeting of Hope Hose company, will be held to-night at S o'olock. �A foil attendance is desired, as action will be taken in regard to a trip on the Fourth of July. A STORY OF JOHNSTOWN A Knotty Problem Grown Oat of the Oonem&ngh. Valley Disaster INVOLVING A BENEFICIARY FUND There Is Only One Wltnesi, anil the Point Hlnr.es on Which member or a Family W�s the first to Die on That Dreadful Day Whn All War* Swept Into Eternity The Hatter In the;BoItliuore Court."" B altimohe, Md., Juue 9.-A ease which had its rise In the awful flood and attendant loss of life at Johnstown, Pa., on May 31,18B9, came up in court before Judge DcnniB today. It was that of the supreme lodge of the Golden Chain againat Bertha H. Cowman and William Lloyd Rogers, administrators of Walter Hooper, dsc. The fact tbat there is but one witness, adda a peculiar interest to the suit. Tbe defendants are claimants respectively to the beneficiary fund of �3,000 beld by the order of the Golden Chain. A bill was filed asking the court to determine to whom the fund should be paid, Ou the day of the fatal disaster Hooper with his wife and two children, with servants and visitors, eleven persons in number, were In the house owned and oconpied by Hooper, on Maple avenue, and all were drowned. Mrs. Cowman, who was Hooper's sister and administratrix, claims tbe money, aa against Rogers, administrator of Mrs. Hooper; but tbe two children, it is alleged, survived some minutes after the death of the parents. Mrs. Cowman claims that all of the partiea died on this one occasion, and tbat removes intermediate Interest, and that she, therefore, is entitled to the fund. For the defendants it is claimed that as Mrs. Hooper ia not shown to have died before her husband, tbe fund must belong to her estate! but If not, it must go to tbe friends of the infant children as they survived. DEATH FROM FOISON. One of Lycoming- County's Oldest Cltlsens takes a Dose of Concentrated Lye. WtUlamsport Republican. Christian Myers, a man about eighty years of age, living with relatives in Mosquito Valley, died on Saturday night, after suffering inexpressible agony, tbe result of taking a quantity of concentrated lye on Wednesday afternoon last. It was lata Wednesday afternoon when the people with whom tbe old man lived became alarmed by his q ueer actions, and upon questioning him found that be had dtank concentrated lye, tbat had been procured for domestic use. Tbe unfortunate man was experiencing intense pain in the region of the stomach, and the family did all in their power to relieve bis sufferings, while a messenger was dispatched Immediately for Dr. Charles. Bohneider, of South Williamspo rt, who upon arrival an hour or bo later, administered treatment usually resorted to in such oases, but without avail, as the dose was destined to be fatal, and after lingering until Saturday death relieved the aged sufferer. It is supposed by some tbat Myeis took the lye with the intention of committing suicide, one report being that be said he was so old tbat he was only in the road and that he was going to put himself oat of too way. Tbere are others, however, who claim that the old gentleman took the dose iu mistake, not knowing the content! of the receptacle in which tbe fiery fluid was fouud. Be this as it n �y the;lye did its work, eating the life out of its victim, while the latter writhed in agony, and his friends witnessed this heart-rending picture powerless to alleviate his distress. LATE BENOVO LOCALS. R.ekovo, Pa., June 10, 1890. The Presbyterian Sunday school waa the only school that observed children's day last Sunday.
