Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - June 13, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania WttttlJg NINTH TBAB-KO. 89. .LOCK HAVEN, PA.. FRIDAY. JUNE 13. 1890. PBICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPBESS sj.in8xok bhovbkh8 - . FUBU8HCUS CURRENT COMMENT. Deaths by drowning while swimming �ad boating, already draw tbe moil pall over tbe summer plcuoraa. It is mors than likely that a monument to the memory of General Grant will be erected in tbe South before .one will be een in New York. John L. Suluvin got a complete knock down foe the Brit time ia his life wlieo Isaac H. Bromley, journalist, called him a big brute and refused an introduction to him. Bromley'a tongue was mightier than Sullivsn'b fisL Sooab at wholesale has gone up nearly a cent pet pound within a week, with a prospect of going still higher. Refiners say their product is sold ahead for aontbs. Tbe canning season is given as the cause of the rise, but there is doubtless some other sgenoy at work also. Senator Qbat will be a delegate to the State Republican Convention. Colonel Samuel Moody, a delegate from Beaver, on Tuesday announced that on account of ill health he will be unable to attend tbe convention, and that in consequence he would give his proxy to the junior Senator, M. S. Quay. Senator Cauekoh bas succeeded in having tbe River and Harbor bill amended by an appropriation of (150,000 for dredging and Btraightulng and deepening tbe Conemaugh river "and removing the deposits left by last year1* floods. Such an item in the bill ought to encouotet no opposition. Mm Hemp, a large wool grower of Australia, is now in this country, on his way to Texas. He believes Australian sheep will thrive well iu this country, and if tbe MoKlnley bill passes be will bring some thousands of these animals over here, believing the price of wool will advance to profitable figures. Ms. Clbvblaxd bas been elected a member of the New York Century Club, with seven black balls cast against him. The clnb Is specially one of literature, and the seven balls were cast presumably by persons who were ignorant of Mr. Cleveland's literary acquirements as indicated by his constant study of the American Cyclopedia. The McKinlay bill has turned up in the British Bouse of Commons. Tbe member of tbe great manufacturing district of, Sheffield asked whether tbe British Government wonld not bring to the notice of the American Government the great injury the proposed bill wonld bring upon British manufactures. .Surely a tariff that displeases the European free traders cau hardly fail to give satisfaction here at home. Making Provisions for the Payment of Oar W�r Claims. A BILL HITB0DTJ0ED BT 0AMER0H Lancaster Jftw Era: Much interest all over the country centres, at the present moment, in the condition of the wheat crop. So far as reliable reports have been received, tbe crop of winter wheat will not vary materially from that of last year. It has held its own during tte past few weeks while the abnodastralns which have fallen all through tbe West and Northwest have wonderfully improved the condition of spring wheat. Tbe acreage of the latter class is also larger than last year? "which is likely to make up for any deficiency thai may develop in winter wheat. Harvest time is coming along so rapidly that the crop is rapidly passing beyond the reach of insect enemies On tbe other side of the Atlantic tbe grain crop� are also reported as being unusually encouraging, all of which seems to indicate there will be no immediate rise in prices. At last the country is likely to get a silver bill which will not meet the views of tbe silver nor yet those of the anti-silver men. Birch a bill baa passed the House and is likely also to go through the Senate without much modification. It provides for the purchase by the Government of of 34,000,000 of silver monthly, and the payment for it in legal tender notes to that Amount. The wrangle is whether those notes shall be redeemed in silver ooin or silver bullion. As such legal tender notes will pass from hand to hand as other Government notes, and are receivable by it for all public dues, there is no reason to suppose they will ever be presented in exchange for silver, as no man prefers silver coin to notes. An increase in our currency of $54,000,000 per annum can probably he borne without creating an unfavorable condition in tbe money market. The trade of the country is growing t a rate wbtoh requires an expansion of our currency. Tbe fact that National Bank circulation continues to be steadily withdrawn will also serve to prevent a too rapid increase in tbe note circulation. fie Stepped on m Wire.

Tbe Pennsylvania railroad company baa virtually done away with tbe ear atove and put in ita place steam. For several years the oompany experimented with different steam-heating deviees, but found them almost all impracticable. Over 300 cars here have been fitted ant with steam appliances, and the work of putting the steam appliance and steam heating apparatus on all the oars will be made as fast as possible. The system is exclusively that of the Pennsylvania railroad company, and it hi ae follows: Two straight pipes, two Inches ia diameter, one for steam and the other to carry the water of the condensation book to the locomotive. This is done by a small vacuum pump fixed on the tender and kept constantly runnicg. The exhaust steam ia all that la used in heating tbe train. The pipes are so made that the steam ean be made nse for any one ear without Interfering with the others. The pipes come up in the oar in sash side just about tbe middle. From the pipes in the oar a spur runs under each seat, whlob gives a general distribution of heat. Tba oar is ventilated by forty openings through tbe floor, each about two Inches in diameter, and directly undsr the seats. Tbe fresh sir passes over tbe steam pipes, becoming heated before passing Into the car. The steam passes directly to oaeb end ot the ear. - � -Doctor Jack.
