   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - June 21, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                ninth ye ak-no. 96. PBICE-TWO CENTS evening express ;AMRER LIVELY DEBATE. KINSLOE BROTHERS---PUBLISHERS CURRENT COMMENT. The Ropublicati party is united in favor of an national election law. It is time tb.it federal erections iu the Southeast cease to be a farce and a sham. English syndicates are not satisfied with baying op our factories, breweries and mercantile industries; they aro now after our lotteries. Well, they are wol come to them. Tue restoration of 40,000 to a reformed citizen of Norristown, from whom it was taken seventeen years ago when ho was dissoluto, is emineutly proper. Almost anybody wonld keep sober to obtain that nice snug sum of money. Mr. Wuitelaw Reiu, minister to Frauce, pays $27,000 a year for his Paris bouse, and his expenses will probably run close to 100,000. His salary is only $17, 500, and it tbuB takes $10,000 more than this to pay his bouse rent. Two Senators only from what may bo called Eastern States joined the . Democrats in the demaud for frco silver coiu age-Cameron, of Pennsylvania, and Blair, of New Hampshire The latter is a born crank, and nothing better could be ex peoted of him, but Senator Cameron knows that his State and his party in the State repudiate the free coinage doctrine. Postmaster Genekal Wanamaker, in an address to the boys of the Pennsylvania Military Academy, told them to lift thoir faces to the sky, press upwards, and they'would find plenty of room at the top Mr. Wanamaker himself is a conspicuous example of the boy who looked upward and pressed forward and found room at the top. His life has been a brilliant sno-cess in every phase from following th advice ho gave the military boys. The authority that Postmaster Genera! Wanamaker has asked Congress to give him over the Louisiana lottery ought to be speedily graneed by that body. At present the gambling concern has its mail received at one of the New Orleans Na. tional Banks, and, although the post office officials are aware of the fact and the three thousand letters delivered daily aro all prohibited by the spirit of the postal law, yet it is impossible to refuse to deliver them. The government thus becomes a partner with the State of Louisiana in in oreaBing the power an extending the domain of the gambling concern, which is now straggling to obtain a prolonged ex istence there. For once there is a very substantial reason behind the wail which comes up from the peach orchards of Delaware. Heretofore, the public has been accustomed to this cry as regularly as the spring season comes along, only to bo met a little later on by abundant crops of the luscious fruit. This time no peaches will form a pleasant background to the usnsl lament. The frost, snow and rains did come along and extinguish the peach germ, and now, when the time is here when the millions of baskets are wont to bo counted, and the thousands of car ljads enumerated, we awake to realize the faot that there will be no Delaware peach crop in 1890.

The Friends of Preo Ooinago Gain Another Victory in the House. THEY 0VEEEIDE SPEAKER   EEED. Finally Wednesday's Amended Journal Adopted-AlmoM �n Entire Day Pasted In Trying to Discover Where the Free Coinage Measure I* and What to Do With It- Other News. WAsmxcTON, June 20.-At the seoond days battle over the Silver bill the forces drew off, leaving the situation of the bill itself, if that could be defined, practically in the hands of the clerk of the Committee on Coinage, but where it it is from a parliamentary stand point oannot be stated until the Speaker, at the proper time, as he says, rules upon the question. Un doubtedly the great majority of Republi cans take tho ground that it is still with the Committee on Coinage. Tbe free coinage men intend to renew their attack to-morrow, and to endeavor by voting dowu all privileged motions to get it to the Speaker's table. If they progress so far they will be in & position to know officially the Speaker's belief as to tho situation of the bill Mr. Crisp's motion to adjourn to-day pending a decision of tho appeal from the Speaker's ruling on Mr. Bland's resolution was made in deference to the feeling among a number of Democrats that the Silver bill would not be in order on private bill day. It served to consume the timo up to 5 o'clock, when the House, by a standing order, was obliged to take a recess. Meanwhile the Whips are earnestly at work. It appears that the teat votes yesterday revealed the fact that twenty-seven Republicans were absent and unpaired, as against ten Democrats in a like position. The Republican leaders started out to-day under the impression that they had a majority, to reverse yesterday's action expunging the reference of the Silver bill from the journal, but after the first two votes they were undeceived, thrown upon the defensive and compelled to abandon that plan owing to the absentees. THE DETArr.ED PBOCEEDrKOS. The Journal having been read and approved Mr. Stewart, of Vermont, asked for recognition with the conference report on the Anti-Trust bill, and Mr. Bland of Missouri, was on his feet raising the the question of consideration. Bland's purpose was to offer the following resolutions, that HouBe bill Nor 5381, directing the purohaBO of Silver bullion and the issue of Treasury notes thereon,and for oth er purposes, with tho Senate amendments, bo taken from the Speaker's table and the the Senate amendments concurred in. The House determined, 144 to 102, to consider the conference report, aod it was t&keu up and unanimously adopted Mr. Bland then offered his resolution to take up tho Silver bill. Mr. McKinley made a point of order that the motion waB not privileged; that the only way to reach Speaker's table was to follow tbe order of morning business. Mr. Bland and others argued that the bill was on the Speaker's tabic, and therefore within reach. The Speaker aeked whether, supposing that the bill was found to be upon the Speaker'** table, it did not then come up only in the regular order of precedence. Mr. Bland replied that he had demanded tho regular order when he introduced hiB resolution, that the regular order involved the consideration of Senate bills on the Speaker's table. OETTI.NG WARM asa1h. The Speaker said that he did not so understood the gentleman's motion. Cannon asked that tbe Speaker rule upon tho motion. The Speaker said be did not think that tbe resolution was in order now. That perhaps he could simplify the matter little and suggested to Bland that be ndcrstood bis wish to bo simply to get at this matter when it naturally came up, supposing that it was upon the Speaker's table. Not passing upon the matter at this time, what the chair proposed to do, was that when tbe bill was reached it should be brought before tbe House, but the gentleman did not seom to consider that thiB was Friday, private hill day, and that private bills alone were in order. 3Ir. Bland ssked whether the bill would be laid before the House to-morrow morn-ug. The Speaker declined to decide that quesiion until tho proper time. McComas, of Maryland, demanded the regular order. The Speaker said that tbe regular order was a private bill which be passed to tbe reading desk. Mr. Springer wished to know when the Chair might be expeoted to deside where tho bill was. The   Speaker.-"Whenever  tbe  bill ould be iu order, providing tbe views oi the other side were correct, about which tbe Chair presents no opinion, because he does not think it is the proper time." a decision and aitkai,. As Bland and Springer finally insisted a specific ruling, tbe Speaker finally ruled that Bland's resolution to proceed to a consideration of tbe Silver Bill was not in order under the lulea. Mr. Bland appealed from the deoision, Mr. McKinley moved to lay tbe appeal on the tables. The yeaB and nays were ordered, pending which Crisp, of Georgia, moved that the House adjourn. This motion was defeated, but the hour of 5 o'clock arrived and tbe House under the rule took a recess until 8 o'olook, tbe evening session to be for pension business. The House met at 8 o'clock, but when motion was made to go into Committee of tbe Whole to consider private pension bills, Eoloe, of Tennessee, made a point of no quorum and the House adjourned immediately without transacting any business. appropriation bill passed. In the Senate to-day tbe Legislative Appropriation bill, after a lengthy discussion, was passed.

New Yokk, June 21.-The expeoted debate between T. V. Powderly, of the Knights of Labor, and Samuel Goropers, of the American Federation of Labor, caused a great crowd to gather at Cooper Union this evening. Mr. Powderly was loudly applauded by tbe crowd wbioh filled every seat and banked itself np in the rear of tbe hall. With a few introductory remarks Mr. Powdetly read a aecond letter from Samuel Gompers, and said that Chairman Warner would speak concerning the disposition of it. That gentleman then came forward. He said the letter had been considered by the Executive Board, wbioh decided that as the meeting bad been arranged for tbe Knights of Labor, and Mr. Gompers desired half of the time of tha meeting, it was not considered advisable to accept Mr. Gompers' offer. There was a general stampede at this point, and about 200 persons left the ball in a body. Mr. Powderly said: "All those who desire may leave the ball now, as there are hundreds of others who cannot get in." This was proved by the fact that tbe seata vacated were soon filled again. Powderly continuing reviewed the history of the Knights of Labor and defended tbe order from the charges made against it. In conclusion he offered to step down and follow in tbe ranks of Gompers or any man as tbe one to lead. CITY  SCHOOL  BOABD. FBB80XAL   FKNCILINGS. The Latest Gossip About Tou and Your Friends.
