   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - June 14, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                Mil 111 NINTH YEAS-NO. 90. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. SATURDAY. JUNE 14, 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EggRESS eUNsLOE KROTHKR8 - - - PPBLISHEBS CURRENT COMMENT. SrKAKKR Keed hu plaeed Roger (J. Mills on tbe Committee on Hole* in place of Carlisle, and the Texan now has at last something like a formal recognition aa the Democratic leader of the House. TnK Duke of Westminister oach year takes in about (5,000 in lixpeooea and shillings, paid by Sightseers for admission to Ilia country seat at Eaton Hall. The Duke has a land rental amounting to $875,000 a year. Russia, with a population of nearly a hundred millions, has only 40,000 primary schools, of whioh 18,000 are parish sobools. From this we infer that it will be many a day before the oonntry can boast of her educational facilities. The Postmaster General is moving to plaoe letter boxes on dwellings to increase the efficiency of the free delivery service. Designs are wanted for a box that will serve the purpose, and a commission has been selected to see to the improvements. Ex GovEBKon Pattison'b mathematical friends have already figured out a majority for bim in the Sarantoo Convention. Ex-Senator Wallace also has several able experts who have proved with their "tables" that he will be Dominated on the first ballot. Tax faot that the people's olothing and every sort of manufactured article that the people use have steadily declined in price under a protective tariff must be awfully aggravating to Democratic editors who consider it their duty to write at least one article a day proclaiming that a tariff la a tax. A disgruntled lobbyist undertook to berate a Congressman for opposing bis bill and insinuated it was done from improper motives. The Congressman went right back into the obamher and worked so energetically that the foolish man's bill was knocked on the head. It won't do to fool ranch with a Congressman. Persons intending to go abroad are osutioned against further attempting to smugglo articles on returning. Notice is given that the time is past when a ten dollar gold piece in the top of a trunk will seonre it against investigation. Hereafter the examination will be very rigid and the intention is to allow no guilty man to escape. Woman's sphere of usefulness Is widening. The proprietors of the largest and most successful opium joint in New York, who defied all the efforts of the authorities for years to obtain legal evidence against them, have finally been caught by a young and beautiful girl, who successfully played the part of a detective and broke up the joint. A MUDEGBOOM in New York who said be had not time to answer the questions of a census enumerator got looked up. He was hurrying to go off to Niagara on his wedding tour when the exasperating questioner appeared. The Commissioner before whom he was taken was doubtless a benedict, for he took compassion on him' and speedily restored him to his weeping bride. Tax Spanish government once more reminds Seoretary Blaine of the preparations which It is making for  World's Fair at Madrid in 1803 for commemorating the part which Spain played in the discovery of America. The faot that the government at Madrid is about to engage in such an undertaking is not generally known in this country. But it is not likely to interfere with the exhibition at Chicago, as that will not be held until the following year. Up-BIver Ittm A Westport correspondent of the Renovo Ntwt furnishes the following interesting items for that paper: A valuable deposit of Fire Clay has also been found on the tract whioh is now being opened by the Kettle Creek coal mining company. The work of grading is still going on, in tbe line of the Kettle Creek railroad. The principal work is being done between this place and Short Bend. Riabard Riddles is at present engaged in locating the Are day on tbe A. H. Mann tract east of this place, prospects seem to grow brighter and brighter every day for a business boom in this locality in tbe near future. Robert Mcintosh is in charge of the gang of men locating the coal veins on the Bfunson and Merrimao tracts at and above Two Mile Run. On Saturday last they discovered a five and a half foot vein with one hundred and thirty feet of cover on it, and is tbe best coal yet found in this lacal-ity. ^ Board of Trade Meeting. A regular meeting of the Board of Trade will be held Monday evening at 8 o'clock. Business of Importance is to be transacted and all members an urgently requested to attend. THE DECISION SUSTAINED Another Victory for the Original Package Hen in This State. VERDICT IN THE HTTAMINO 0A3E TUe Charges Against Silverman Met Sustained In a Test Can Thai May Have a Wonderful Effect aa the Business In This State-The Discovery or a Census Enumerator la Virginia. - Pittsburg, June 13.-The ease of Silverman, the "original package man," tried in Kittanning for violating the Brooks law, aa well as the prohibitory aot of the borough, was concluded this morning. There were three counts in the indictment, selling in a prohibitory district and without a license, selling to minora, and selling to persons of known intemperate habits. Silverman set up the United States Sn-preme Court deoition as a defense, and denied that be had sold either to minors or intemperate persons. Both the prosecution and defense submitted a number of law points upon which they asked the court to charge the jury. Judge Reyburn, before whom the case was tried, refused to affirm the points of tbe prosecution, which claims that the selling was in violation of the prohibitory law of tbe district, holding that if tbe beer was sold in the original paokage tbe defendant could not be indicted. If the defendant, however, sold to minors or intemperate persons it was a plain violation of tbe State law, and would not come under the deoiaion, because the State had a right to make police regulation for the protection of such classes named. The question whether the beer sold was In original packages the court left to the jury to decide. After an absence of over two hours the jury found that the defendant was not guilty of selling without a license or to minors, bat was guilty of selling to persons of intemperate habits. The defense says this verdict virtually decides that the original package decision is a go In the State, and that the liquor dealers simply throw money away in paying for a Bute lioense. The oaae will probably be appealed, bnt the impression Is that Silverman will be sentenced on the sonnt by which he was found guilty. BASK  BALL BE CORD.

HAM'S BB8T FRIEND. {THE ECHOS OF TOWN TALK several Good Reasons to Prove That Woman Is the Parson. From the Ladles' Home Journal. first and foremost, womsn is man's best friend: Because she is his mother. 8eoond, because she is bis wife. Because she is patient with h'm Id ill-ness, endures his fretfnlness and "mothers" him. Beoanss she will stick to blm through good and evil report, and always believe In him, if she loves him. Because without her he would be rnde, rough and ungodly. Because she teaches him the" value of gentle words, of kindly thoughts and of consideration. Because she oan with him, endure pain quietly and meet jay gladly. Because on her breast be can ahed tears of repentance, and ha Is never reminded of them afterwards. Because when he is behaving like a fretful boy-and we all do, you know, at times-with no reason In tbe world for it woman's soft word, tonoh or glance will make him ashamed of himself, as be ought to be. Because without her as an incentive, he would grow lazy; there would be no good work done, there would be no noble books written, there would be no beautiful, pictures painted, there would be no divine strains of melody. Because she has made for us a beautiful world, In whioh we should be proud to live and contented to die. Because-and this is tbe best reason of all-when the world had reached an unenviable state of wickedness the blessed task of bringing it a Saviour for all mankind, was given to a woman, which waa God's way of setting bis seal of approval on her, who is mother, wife^daughter and sweetheart, and therefore, man's best friend. � m � An Important Engagement to Keep. From the Indianapolis News. The train for Cleveland was pulling out and had gained considerable headway when there came a whiz and the sound of splitting wind as a man with a tall silk hat crushed down on his ears dashed through tbe gates. He carried two big valises, but they were apparently aa light as feathers, for tbey did not interfere with his mad rush after that .train. He fairly flew along tbe platform, and the brake-man cm the oar was so busy looking at a girl in the window of the National Hotel that he did not see him. The orowd yelled and whooped. "Get there, old maol" 'Pall for It hard1." "You'll make it it you don't fall dead," and a hundred suoh aggravating remarks. The man made an heroio effort, but he didn't have the legs, and the brakemsn didn't see bim-thus he missed tbe train. He came slowly back to tbe gates, put down his grips, mopped his fsoe, and remarked: 'Well, I'll be Mowed." He didn't say blowed, bnt let it go at that. 'Had a lively run," suggested a meek and lowly gateman. "Rather. Just my look, though, to miss that train. Why, I wouldn't have missed that train for *50." "Where were you going ?" once more ssked the gateman with the ginger-colored whiskers. 'Lafayette.  And I have an important engagement there to-night." "Well, yon can keep it." "Hey ?" The train you were chasing goes to Cleveland. Tbe Lafayette train don't start for eight minutes yet. There it stands." The drummer didn't say a word. He gathered his grips and climbed aboard the car while tbe faintest bit of a smile hovered about the meek and lowly gateman'a chops. President Harrison's Belief, I have a firm belief that the rook of our safety, as a nation, lies in tbe proper education of our population; that it is impossible for a man to discharge bis duties as a citizen withont the knowledge that is to be derived from the common schools. Tho Next Term of Const. An argument court will be held on Sat nrday, July 5tb, and tbe regular term of court will be held tbe fourth Monday in September. Whether the new trial of Charles Cleary will take plaoe at that time is not yet decided. - An Kerlr Crop. Miss Mary Proctor on Wednesday dug new potatoes in her own garden, which were of large size, and ia probably the first of the home grown tubers eaten by any one in tbla section.

The gentleman were entertained in a most hospitable manner at their stopping place, and Mr. M. in return for the kindness organized the juvenile members of the family into a singing clans and taught them to sing nursery rhymes Altogether the trip was full of pleasure for the fishermen and one they will recall with pleasureable emotions in alter years. The largest fish caught by either of the pair was an eel. V m.'c. A. Conference. Next Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the 20th, 21st and 23d inst, a conference of the Y. M. C.

If it remains until reduced to twenty-fire cents without a purchaser it will be given to the first customer who is fortunate enough to make a purchase of any thing iu the store the following day. It is simply a novel wa> of advertising a brand of excellent soap. Almost Another Runaway. This morning a bone attached to on* of Hamburger's bakery wagons took fright at some object and started to run away, while the driver was serving some customers on Grove street, near Railroad. A freight train waa passing at the time and the horse turned around to ran the opposite direotion, and in so doing broke the front wheel, which held it nntil tbe driver came.

There has been no floods to interfere with the bridge builders since work at tbe East end of tbe Island was begun, and by the middle of next week the bridge will be completed. Losing Another Industry. The WiUiamsport Qaiettt and Bulletin this morning says: Workmen are now engaged in tearing down the planiog mill and flooring mill building of Nichols & Seaman, on Hepburn street and the canal, preparatory to moving the entire establishment to Htgbspire, below Harriibnrg. A afjeeellaneons Mixture of Sense nnd Nonsense Scissored nnd Scribbled. It is folly to believe that one can faithfully love who does not love faithfulness The Christian is like the ripening oorn; tbe riper he grows tbs more lowly be bends bis head. He that would be angry and ain not, must not be angry with anything bnt sin. If you wold have a faithful servant and one that yon will like, serve yourself. The grocer's right of weight is one of the most important adjuncts or bis business. The mm who believes in nothing is as big a fool as he who believes in everything. Some people you like nntil you find them out, and others you do not like nntil yon find them out. Some men would rather be rich than handsome, but every woman in the universe would rather be both. Tbe gain of lying is nothing else bnt not to be trusted by any, nor to be believed when we aay the truth. Nature when she plants a vegitable poison, generally provides an antidote; so in the moral world, she causes sympathies to: spring up by the side of an antipathies. .Poattiveness is a most absurd foible; if you are in the right it lessens your tri-| umph; if In the wrong It adda ahame to I your defeat. Life is continually weighing us in very sensitive scales, and telling every one of us precisely what his real weight ia to the last grain of dust. Gratitude becomes selfishness when It is too profuse; to be overthanked for ona favor is in effect to be paving the way for another. Have the coolness to out tbe most agreeable acquaintance you have when you an convinced that he lacks principle; a friend shonld bear with a friend's infirmities, bnt not with his vices. To find fanlt la the very earliest thing In' the world, to invite oriticiam and. to profit by it, Is tbe only unequivocal proof of a great mind. We are mora forcibly persuaded In general by the reasons that we ourselves discover, than by those that come from the minds of others. The world is made of such hard, flinty substance against which your better and holler thoughts will be striking lira; sea to it that the sparka do not burn yon. Whatever mitigates the woea or increases tbe happiness of others as a just criterion of righteousness. One should not quarrel with a dog without a reason sufficient to vindicate one through all the courts of morality. The last word is an "infernal machine," and married folks should no more struggle for it thin far a hundred pound shell with the fuso lighted. In all contentions between wit and violenoe, prudence and rudeness, learning and the sword, tbe strong hand took it first, and the strong head possessed it last. Much as friends add to the happiness and value of life we must in the main depend on eurselves; and every one ia hia own friend or worst enemy. You will find that the mora resolve not to be useless, and the honest desire to help other people; will. In the quickest and most delicate ways, improve yonraelf. Fourth or JalT Pfente. Knights of Labor Assembly, No. 10.251, of Farrandsville, will hold a picnic and dance at Farrandsville, July 4th, In the grove at that plaoe, to which everybody is invited. The muslo will be furnished by an orchestra from tbla city. Dinner and supper will be aerved on the grounds. SUJIDAY SBBV1CB8. William Oullen Kills Charles Desmond and Shoots Himseli SUDDEN INSANITY CAUSES THE DEED After Committing the Crime tho Murderer �nds Bis Own Lire by a Bullet Fired Into His Month-The Frightful Affair Occurs While tho Two Man Wen Engaged at Tholr Dally Wort. Philadelphia, June 13.-In the cellar of a new building on Maple avenue below Cumberland street this afternoon, Charles Desmond, was shot and killed by William CuIIsd, aged 19, who afterwards committed suicide by shooting himself in  the month. Two shots were fired at Desmond both of wbiob took effect in his bead and either of them was sufficient to cause Instant death. When Desmond waa found his tools lay beside him. He bad evidently stooped over to begin his work, when without warning of any kind the first shot was fired into bis brain. Not satisfied with bis work, the murderer fired another abot into bis head, and, probably withont changing his position fired the sbot Into bis own head. Both men were plumbers and bad been at work on the building. Cullen had been slok but returned to work at noon today and engaged in conversation witb Desmond. After talking pleasantly for some time Desmond remarked that ha would go to the cellar and pat in a drip. Cullen said he would accompany bis in a few minutes. Three pistol shots ware heard in quick succession, and when the other workmen reached the cellar the two men wera dead. Tbe polios at once began an Investigation, but no motive for tbe crime baa been discovered, and it is considered probably that Cullen waa suffering from a fit of insanity. Tbe above men bad alweye been the best of friends. Mr. McCana, Cullen'a employer, says his (Cullen's) mother called on him about two weeks ago to see about bim returning to work. She said he bad been vary sick bat bad recovered, except that he appeared very melancholy and aha was afraid his mind was affected. Cullen was from Phoeaizville. SAVED BY TBANSFtTSION.

The unlighted gas jet was wide open and the room waa full of gas. Miss Cunningham was taken in a comatose condition to the New York Hospital. She failed to rally alter receiving the usual treatment, so on January 7 her physiolan decided to try the transfusion of blood. In two operations forty ounces of blood, poisoned by tba inhaled gas had been drawn from her. Amos L. Lincoln, a big, healthy telegraph lineman, under treatment for a muscular affection of the arms, volunteered to give tbe Hood needed to fill her veins. About twenty-five ounces were drawn from his right arm into a basin containing phosphate of soda, whieh waa intended to keep the blood from coagulating. A little rubber pipe terminating in a glass tuba waa attached to tbe bottom of the vessel, whioh was elevated several feet above the girl's body. Tbe glass end ol the tube was inserted in the radial artery in her wrist, and Amos Lincoln's blood was let into her veins. Miss Cunningham remained unoonsoions nntil January 9, She then revived enough to speak a little, but soon sank bank Into uucoasciousn ess, from wbiob she revived daring tbe next fonr days only occasionally and with great difficulty.
