PlilCE-TWO. CENTS EVENING EXPKESS �UNSLOK BROTHERS - - - FPBMSHBRS CURRENT COMMENT. It is to be hoped that St. Paul aud Minneapolis may bo able to adjust tlioir census diflerencos without actual civil war. TilE crowded condition of the Pasteur Institute, in New York, bears testimony tbat tbe ouly safe dog is a muzzled dog during tbe summer months. Did you notice how all the Mugwump 'pipelra "praised Blaine'wheo they snspeot-ed that be was a Mugwump on the McKin-leybill?, Now be is� ba-d man again. AccOBMNG to tbe official authorities the entire number or panpers in Great Britain on the 1st of January, 1890, was 793,246, or considerably over three quarters of a million. Caufohkia will supply tbe deficiency here in tbe Kast bo far as peaches, plums and pears art conocrned. Freights are $400 per ton and at that price there is a big profit in the liusiuess. Consul Eckstein, of Amesterdam, re. ports that during tbe year 1889 the amount of Snmatran tobacoj exported to tbe Unit' ed States was 43,397 bales, worth �6,478,. 135 " The dividends declared by Borne of tbe companies engaged in growing this tobacco were 35 1-3, 42$, 33 an-i 12J per cent. It is nnfortuuate that the two great labor organizations of tbe country, the Knights of Labor and tbe American Federation of Labor, are at outs and their leaders bitterly assailing each other. Not tbe mutual interests of the parties seem to enter into tbe conteHt, but jealousies eniys that he will positively not play second fiddle on to-mor- row's ticket, and bis kite in Hying lively Major William (J. Morel ami, of Pittsburg, will introduce his name and the Allegheny specials are here to bustle along the excitement. Editor Ilarry M. By ram, the Pittsburg Vhronde-Ttlcjraph lighter, whose broadsides have been heavy aud bard against Delamater, is running headquarters, and there is plenty of life there for all in search of it. The Mon tooth crowd regard tbe Colonel Schoonmaker compromise for Lieutenant Governor, as a joke, Sc boon maker is a P it tab urge r and has large coke producing plants in Westmoreland and Fayette. His nomination is probable as an offset to any disaffection that might follow in Pittsburg in case Delamater is defeated. A speoial telegraph wire has been run into Chairman Andrews' room at the Lochia!; Some peple believe tbe other end oan be found in Beaver. organization and fla?fork. The Convention will organize with District Attorney George S. Graham, of Philadelphia, as temporary chairman, and with Federal District Attorney Walter Lyon) of Pittsburg, as permanent chairman. This is regarded as the field against Delamater. The platform will be of unusual scope. Its preparation in sketch form has been left to Lyman D. Gilbert, a Dauphin delegate, and I am told that it will deal with the road tax question, iu which the farmers aro so deeply concerned; with ballot reform, advising a law similar to the Saxton measure in Hew York, and with tbe tariff, adopting the Chicago declaration of 1888, The silver coinage law now before Congress, may be referred to. There are so many issues that the platform promises to be exceptionally comprehensive. col. thomas' story. Lots of old stayers are here, including Uncle John Cessna, of Bedford, who comes up once more to see how \l is done, and Uncle John Lemon, of Blair, ex-Auditor General and ex-some other things. Col. R, H. Thomas, the granger, dropped down to-day from Mechauiosburg, with a bran aew story of Vic Piolett's conversion from Democracy. It appears tbat the Wysox grauger has a son whose society friends are all Republican, andvcoming home one one day he said to Victor that he felt too looesome where he was and bad changed his opinions because he believed it right. Col. Thomas adds that Piolett replied- DaOMied if I don't feel lonesome myself.'* Hence his conversion. in the midst ok ckoas. Tho word choatic expresses the conven* tion situation here this evening. No bead-quarters has figures to give out, and no expression is made behind the confidence tbat the result will come light when wanted. HarrtBburg has never seen such crowds at a political gathering as now block the streets. If marching olube and bands of music are guages of strength, then Hastings leai. overwhelmingly. There is no mistaking the sentiments. He is a great favorite and gains steadily. The impression prevails, however, that Dala-mater is safe for first place, and there s an air of confidence among his backers tbat means his nomination beyond a doubt. A ticket named to-night is Delamater for Governor, Martin for Lieutenant-Governor and Stewart for Internal Affairs. a reported break. A startling development thiB evening is the position taken by David H. Lane, who went into tbe caucus of tbe Philadelphia delegation wearing a Delamater badge. This points a big break in the Hastings vote, and may nominate Delamater on the first ballot. Lane always takes a safe side. In explanation he says a man is privileged by the Constitution to side where he pleases. The belief is tbat a quiet tip from Beaver has started tbe Philadelphia delegates to strengthen the Crawford statesman's lines, Tom Stewart says tbat he � and Wallace bave a Clearfield. It is one of the few ploasantrtcs of this hot night. lycomino's candidate. Congressman McCormiek's friends are watching for lightning to strike their way. They hold that in the event of a compromise Mr. McCormick stands a good show. Tbe outlook says no compromise will enter the work of the convention, as all elements leading up to such a departure are lacking. The pressure for tickets to the opera bouse is enormous. One hundred and sixty-live passes have been issued to the press, not half of whom can secure deBk room. The labors of tho convention are practically settled in the Philadelphia delegation break. It moans Delamater, and that on the Gist ballot. Outside of Pittsburg Montooth is hardly in s>ght. At the Tabernacle, There was a fairly good attendance at the "Tabernacle" IaBt night and the services wore intoroBtiDg. To night the subject of the sermon will be "The Second Coming of Christ." All are invited. OUR LOCAL DRAG NET. Tbe Happenings in and About Lock Haven.

The Ren'ovo Stat of yesterday tells about highwayman stopping Dr. Fullmer, of that place, and a man named Thomas Confer. The particulars as given by tbe News are that Saturday night Dr. C. L. Fulmer was called to North Bend to see a patient. After concluding hit professional duties, the doctor enlisted tbe serrioes of Thomas Confer to drive him back to Renovo. When they reaohed the mouth of Paddy's Rud, about 11:45, a man jumped ont into the road at the head of tbe norm with a revolver in his band, and brought tbe animal to a stand still. The doctor and Mr. Confer demanded to know the reason for ths man's Btrange aotion, and that individual informed them tbat in his opinion they would take a wise course by returning to North Bend and not attempt to continue tbeir journey up the road as several men with evil designs on travelers were stationed at a point near the top of tbe bill over which the highway crosses. Tbe gentlemen, though unarmed, were not to be frightened by such a game as that and kindly thanking tbe Btranger for his solicitude in their behalf, drovo on. The point which was designated as dangerous was safely passed and the trip made to Renovo without encountering anything or anybody of a threatening character. Sir. Confer on the road home at 12:30 reached the top of tbe bill, and although it was quite dark, he distinguished the form of a man cautiously crawling) up the bank at the side of the road, and at the same time another fellow, with two revolvers in his bands jumped on to the road from the north side and oalled loudly to the oooupant of tbe oariiage to Btop at the same time pointing their pistols at him. Confer did not consider it bis duty to tarry at the behalf of the strangers so roughly inclined and he plied bis whip to the horse, which gave a sudden bound forward and left the men behind. Tbe wheel of tbe carriage nearly struck the man who olambered up tbe hill side, and be and his companion was evidentty so much surprised at the spirit shown by the traveler and his horse that they did not even fire their revolvers after tbe rapidly departing Confer, who lost no time in reaching his home at tbe Bend. A Blrthil.T Picnic. Clarence Ringler, the interesting little son of Mr. and Mrs. X. B. Ringler, was eight years old yesterday, and in honor of the event several of his little playmates planned a picnio at Strayer's grove, which was a very pleasant affair. A number of ladies were present to look after the welfare of tbe little folks, and the day l Motions Pending-The Postofliee and Other. Appropriation BlllslT Wabhingtoh, Jnne 24,-The Republi can managers in the House express oon fidenceof tbeir ability to carry through their program to-morrow td non-concur ia tbe senate amendment* to the Silver bill and secure a conference at ouoe. Their calculations, of course, are' based on a full attendance on their side,, and are made in expectation that' every member necessarily! absent wiU.be paired, and tbat most of the free coinage Republicans will stay in line and vote to non-concur as the: speediest of reaohing a conclusion. Several motions will be in Order before a final vote-is taken. Already Bland has interposed a motion to. concur in tbe Senate: amendments, which is of superior .privilege to Conger's motion to non-ooDcur. ! ,.., In addition a motion will doubtless be made, to concnr with an amendment. This amendment would probably be'in the nature of a substitute embracing the original House bill witb the bullion reception clause striken, out. Then it is possible tbat an opportunity .will be afforded to'. vote separately upon each of the' amendment* made by the Senate. Altogether^ is probable that although voting is to begin at 2 o'oldck the remainder of the afternoon will be consumed in taking tbe various successive steps - necessary to dispose of the bill. TBE PENDING MOTIONS. ; : Mr. MaKinley, from the Committee on Rule*, introduced in tbe House' tbis afternoon a resolution tbat tbe House proceed at once to the consideration of the Silver bill as amended by the Senate, the previooa question to be considered. Ordered at % o'clock to-morrow. ' This was adopted. Tbe report of Chairman Conger, of: the Coinage Committee, recommended 'that tbo House nonconcur in each and all of tl a Senate amendments. Mr. Bland moved tbat the House concnr in the Senate amendments. With these'.motions pending the debate begun. Speeches, were made by Messrs. Conger,, Bland and a number of others. T . !.*'�� At 5:40 tbe Bouse adjourned and the debate will be continued to-morrow. IN THB 8KNA.TS. .

The bill appropriates �73,464;198, being �1,047,361 mora than the estimated revenue. > >; ; The diplomatic and consular appropriation bill was also passed. Several amendments, ineluding one increasing' tbe compensation of the Minister to Turkey from 7,000, to $10,000 were agreed'.: to.1 The conference report on the pension - corporation bill having been presented^ Mr Gorman moved that the Senate recede from tbe only amendment not arranged. In conference, that for the appointment of two additionol pension agents, eayiog that there was no possibility of the House agreeing to it. The motion Was agreed to. Tbe Senate receded, and the pepsion ap. propriation bill now goes to the President. Sullivan Pined. Punvis, Miss., June Hi. - Sullivan pleaded guilty and was fined $500.

The Elmira clnb will be here on Friday afternoon and indulge in a friendly game of base ball with the home team on ^ tbe new grounds, on Clinton avenue.

Tbe excursion ta Queen's Run - to-night on the steamer "City of Lock Haven" will be a delightful ride. Tbe air on the. river is cool and refreshing, and notwithstanding the faot that there will be a fuU or obeatra on the boat, the fare for tbe round trip will be tbe same as at other times, The steamer leaves the landing at 7:15. The Festival at Wooltlch. The rain last Saturday evening interfered considerably with the church festival at Woolrioh, consequently tbe festival was repeated last night. That it was a complete success may be inferred from the fact over $100 was realized for tbe benefit of the oburob, What the Matleisail Ctonservalfe of Manic Tbe annual Eotrance examinations of the National to'bsBrvatdry'oV 'Mnsio, No*. 12G and 128 EastrlJOi, Street, New York, will be held as follows: ' Singing .Classes-rSeptemberj 25tb and 26th,^loDO, from 8 a. miito 18 to 5 p.; m:; from 8 to 10 p. m." >'�'��� m.-h Violin; 'Cello;C6nti4hass; 'styl' Harp phases,, Bs|yyb^ffl|h.jB)m�� bonrs. , Piano and prgan /ciaaaos-fpptember SOtti, same hours"."'
