   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - June 12, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                oetitn. NINTH YEAR-NO. 88. LOCK HAVEN, FA.. THURSDAY. JUNE 12. 1890. PBICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KOSLOli HKOTHKKS---PUBLISHERS CURRENT COMMENT. TnK revenue officers of the Govommont have been very active of I�te in arresting amugglerB. Not a steamer arriveB from Europe that does not contain more or less smuggled goods, and these have latterly been seized in large quantities. One would suppose that tho McKin-Iey bill was framed with the deliberate purpose to rob consumers of foreign goodB, whereas it takes the duty off 44 artioles it reduces the revenne nearly $60,000,000: it transfers 18 artioles from the free list to the dutiable list, but the entire lot will pay not to exoeed $3,500,000. Major Fond in London on Monday signed a contract with Henry M. Stanley, for a course of lectures to be delivered in the United States. For the eutire course Mr. Stanley is to receive $50,000, being $2,000 for New York and other large citieB and (1,000 each for the smaller ones. The first lecture will be given at the New York' Metropolitan Opera House on November 11. IN THE SENATE AND HOUSE Work of the National Law Makers Washington Yesterday. at THE APPB0PBIATI0H BILL REPORTED The uk is a rumor that Secretary Blaine , has been slated for the Presidency of the proposed international bank of the Three Americans. It would be a high and lion orable position and would be a permanent office at a high salary. As it will be some time before the project matures, he might be very willing to step into Buch a pleasant place at the close of the Harrison adminis tration. Mr. Carnegie's munifioence was illustrated again on Monday when the pnblio library, wbich he presented to the oity of Edinburgh at a cost of $250,000 was for-merly opened. If the donation had been postponed until after his death, and made a portion of his will, it would might never have been carried into effect, and he would besides, have been deprived of the rare and exquisite enjoyment which the grand effects of his beneficence now present to him and every other observer. The Democratic and deputy Democratic newspapers are now declaring vociferously that-the enforcement of a federal eleo tion law in tho Southeast would throw that Eection into "turmoil," "derange and proBtrate industry" and raise Cain generally with Southeastern interests. What stuff! The only "industry" that will be "prostrated" or "deranged" by honest elections will be that of the shotgun gangs and the ballot box staffers, The one great need of the Southeast today is honest eleotions. The bill to prevent the adulteration of food products and drags, reported by Senator Paddock from the Senate Committee on Agriculture, combines all the valuable featnres of the several bills introduced* at various times previously. It prohibits the introduction into any State of any adulterated food or drugs under a heavy penalty. The definition of what �hall be considered adulteration is comprehensive, and carefully stated. It establishes a division in the Agricultural Department whose chief shall receive *,3,-000 a year, secure samples of foods and drugs sold in any otifer State or Territory than the one wherein they are manufactured, and have them analyzed. The object of the law is to supplement the pure food lavs of the several States. Seizure or a Steamer. Victobia, B. C, June 11,-The little steamer North Star has been seized by Customs Inspector Young on charges of violating the Canada Customs Act. Cap; tain Angel Effel and Fred Jones are own-era of the North Star. : The steamer, ic is alleged, has been for the past six months engaged in carrying Chinese from British Columbia into Washington. The program has been to run out of Victoria at night, land her contraband cargo at some quiet place on the American shore, and at once . Bboot hack into Canada waters. The Chinese smuggled out are disposed of two Mongolian contractors, who pay 120 to $25 apiece for them. The buyers have agents at band where-evei a landing is made, and the Chinese are secreted for two or three days and then shipped to Seattle, Portland, or California points. The North Star is also accused of bringing back America's goods and landing them along the coast near Victoria, and this caused her seizure. It is also stated that she neglected to clear at the Custom Houbb before departing on some of her nocturnal trips. The owners allege that they never brought any goods to Victoria, but it is considered improbable here that the Canadian officials would aid the United States officers. at Make. Provision for an Expenditure of 27,849,513-- Appropriation. - Kecoea-inended for Public Buildings-Leaiela-tlon In the Senate Concerning the ' Export of Cattle. Washington, June 11.-In the Senate to day Mr. Eustis and Mr. Turpie made speeches on the Silver bill. The bill to prohibit monoply in the transportation of cattle to foreign countries, was passed, Mr. Best agreeing to Hall's amendment protecting contraota already made in good faith. The Senate joint resolution was passed requesting the President to enter into negotiations with the British authorities for the purpose of securing the abrogation or modification of the regulation now enforced by them, requiring cattle imported into Great Britain from the United States to be killed within ten days after landing. The bill requiring the Secretary of Agriculture to make a caieful inspection of cattle intended for export to foreign countries, was also passed. Mr. Allison, from the Conference Committee on the pension appropriation bill, presented a report and stated that the only point of disagreement was the amendment adopted by the Senate increasing the number of pension agents from eighteen to twenty.  A further conference was asked. wobk OF THE HOUSE. Mr. Morrill, of Kansas, presented in the House to-day, a conference report on the Dependent Pension bill. It was agreed to after considerable debate, yeas 145, nays 56. The bill grants a pension to soldiers and sailors who are incapacitated for the performance of labor now or hereafter, and also pensions widows, minor children and dependent parents! Mr. Stewart, of Vermont, presented � conference report on the Senate anti-Trust bill. Hesaid the effect of the report was not as bad been supposed to repeal the anti-Pooling Provision of the Inter-State Commerce law. The report went over until to-morrow. THE APl'ROPBIATIOrl BILL. Chairman Canon, from the Committee on Appropriations, to-day submitted to the House the Sundry Civil Appropriation bill. It recommends a total appropriation bill of $27,849,513, being $13,298,370 less than the regular and special estimates,and !,628,801 in excess of the appropriation carried by the last bill. The report states that this apparent excess is largely more than accounted for in the result of the increases necessarily made to properly conneot the public service or to meet expenditures which were not features of the last Sundry Civil act. Among the appropriations for public buildings are the following: Allegheny $65,000; Chester, $30,000; Soranton, $150,000; York, $25,000; Pittsburg, $249,-000. Among the nominations sent to the Senate to-day were the following postmasters in Pennsylvania: William R. Cole, Pottsvilla; Mrs. Selina Gibson,Free-port; Robert W. Corey, Milton. PAINTING IBS BROOKLYN BRSDOB. Several Hundred Hen to Work on Dlszy Belgbts. New Yokk, June 11.-Straddled across mammoth cables or swinging in the air, nearly 200 reet above the East river.seversl men are at work on the Brooklyn bridge giving it a ooat of white paint Twice its history the bridge has been newly painted from end to end, once shortly after its completion and a second time in 1887, It is a vast undertaking, and three years ago SO skilled house painters labored almost unceasingly for nearly two months before the 4000 feet of cables, and equal length of lateral cables and other iron work were covered with two heavy ooats of what is termed atmosphere-defying paint. This is a misnomer, however, for at frequent intervals, where the bands swing, the atmosphere has left its destructive marks and corrps ion has set in. The men parry a tool with whioh they scrape off the evidences of rust until the steel is olean and pore, and then they cover it with the patent paint especially prepared for suoh purpose. Next summer the bridge structure, Inoluding cables and the railroad, will receive a fresh ooat of white paint. Nearly 100 men will be employed for several weeks. Superintendent Martin denies the prevalent notion that this work is attended with unusual danger, and argues that all that is necessary is confidence and striot attention to the task before them. Only two persons have met with an accident out of the hundreds who have been engaged aa painters since the bridge was thrown open for public traffic. CUPID'S' VIGOROUS DART.

Yon can hear her banjo tnmming in tbe old familiar way. From her sea blown hair so curly to her dainty JUUe feet She's Intensely glrly-glrly, and she's Jnst Too Sweet! Bui beware of all her graces and her fete-bine little wayij Though ber net of filmy lace Is, yet it's quite a tangled maze. Once ber eyes so brown and mellow bring you to her slippered feet, You will find some other fellow thinks she's Jnst Too Sweet! You can easily fill tbe public eye if you only have tbe dust. If a man conld sse himself as others see bim be would pull down the blinds. In connection with Time and Tide, the elevator boy comes in for some recognition. There is a current superstition that lightning is like a school boy and will dodge a rod. Every man has a shew in life, but few of them find it a oirous. The vain man never can see any excuse for vanity in the men he knows. Avoid whisky and water, my son, said a fond father.  "It is a delusion and a snare." I hear that your picnic was a swell affair.." "It was. We all got stung by hornet!. If words always meant what they said, articles would be deer when trade is stagnant. Strange to say very few fans are pawned although it Is very easy to "raise the wind With them. In the summer the sales of shoes are doubled as compared with the winter trade. June has five Mondays-rather rough on tbe washwoman. One good way to lessen the risk of excessive ice-water indulgences is to have only a small glass at the cooler. A wineglass is recommended. Census enumerator to young lady in the door: "Did you say the world is your home?" "Yes, sir; I am the daughter of a Methodist minister." At a wedding-dinner tbe other day the panels and vases of ont flowers on the table were illuminated with tiny eleotrio lights of many hues. Black ioe cream is a new fad. It is colored by addition of charcoal and the juice of Turkish prunes. A new ice cream design is accord eon plaited down the aides. White vests make a harvest for tbe washwoman. Furniture polish freshly applied is as good as fly psper. What will follow "Annie Rooney" as tbe national song? Lime juice snd iced water mixed make a timely refresher. The sun has practically no weight; it is so light don't you know. There's all the difference in the world between in need and a needy friend. An eye glass differs from a glass eye In that one is supposed to be seen through and the other is not. A man's will, properly attested, is strong in law, but a woman's "I won't" never backs down anywhere. The saying that pride goes before a fall may be reversed In the case of a man who falls heir to a fortune. "There's something about Annie I don't like," remarked Charle, when be saw Harry's arm around ber waist. Like the average man, the crab deteriorates In quality whan it becomes hardened. And yet a soft orab Is more satisfactory than a soft man. Tbe latest name for tbe "slnsis" ennmt* rator is tbe interrogation point.

Young msn (candidly): "One heart too many; it's a marriage lor money." Inconsistency between words and actions Is generally fatal to tbe accomplishment of good. THE MODERN BANDITS WOBK How They Held Up and Bobbed the Texas Pacific Train. THE AMOUNT 8T0LEN HOT KNOWN Said to Be From Two Hundred to Ten Thousand Dollars-An Obstruction Placed on the Track, and na Express Messenger Instantly Killed -Capture of Northern Pacific Bobber. St. Lotus, Jnne 11.-Advices from the scene of the Texas and Pacific train rob nery say tbe robbers secured about 110,-000 from the safe. As soon as Messenger Nesbitt discovered the intention of the men he fired two shots at the leader and was in the sot of firing a third when he re ceived a bullet in the right breast and fell' to the floor. A late special from Camdan says the robbers plaosd obstructions on the traok>nd that Nesbitt was instantly killed. Further advices from Texarkana say tbe robbers obtained probably less than 200 from the express safe. After they had gone through the oar the robbers marched the engineer, fireman and messenger abont 100 feet from the railroad track, seated them on a log, and told them to stay with their eyes shut for one hoar When the bandits bid gone a distance of about fifty yards they turned and' fired a volley at the men on the log. Tbe messenger was shot through the left band, and another bullet pierced his ear. Tbe robbers then disappeared. It required bnt a short time to notify officers here, who are now in pursuit of tbe ban dits. One party has been arrested, and is now in custody, bnt baa not yet been fully identified. Mondsy afternoon 110,000 was taken from the Southern Express Company's office and carried to the depot. This was sent North. It is supposed the robbers were on the lookout for this sum, but made a mistake, thinking the money was to go South. CAPTURE of one'op TUK men. Dickinson, N. D., Jane 11.-Intense excitement prevailed bose last evening when tbe news spread that Sheriff Hayes, of this county, had oaptured one of the participants in the robbery of the Northern Pacific train at New Salem last Sunday. The Sheriff and two other men arrived with the prisoner andflodged him in jail. In cross-sing Grand river, about eighty miles south of here, the robber's horse was injured, compelling him to stop in bis flight, and when the officers first discovered him yes-erdsy he made a desperate effort to escape, bnt after a race of several miles, and seeing that escape was impossible, he surrendered. He supposed bis time had come to die, and gave some valuable information, showing that the robbery of the train bad been deliberately planned. He gave his name as Charles E. Bailey. There were five men in the band, two of whom came from the west on the train whioh they assisted in robbing. The other three were In readi ness at the scene of the robbery with horses.and after the job was completed the three latter started sonth and separated when a few miles out, one going towards the Missouri river, one west, and the prisoner was making for the Blaok Hills. The two who came from the west remained on the train, and from what the prisoner says there Is no doubt that it was their intention to rob the passengers, bat for some reason this was abandoned. The prisoner offered the Sheriff sl.OOO to release him. Sheriff Hayes left again last night to attempt the capture of the bandit that started east. The prisoner claimed he was under obligation to assist tbe others, bat he is a desperate looking man and evidently a desperado. When oaptured he was supplied with a fifty pound sack of flonr and some bacon, and could have subsisted for two weeks on what provisions he had. The country sonth of here Is almost barren of settlement, and the Sheriff Udsseivlag of muoh oredit for his success. JIBED BIRDS AXD BOBBINS.
