   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - June 27, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                NINTH YEAR-NO- 101. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. FRIDAY. JUNE 27. 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENINGE^RESS &INSLOF. BROTHERS---PUBLISHERS CURRENT COMMENT. Tan Court of Appeals of Now York tins made abort work o! the Suzar Trust of that State by dec'ar.ng it has uo legal status. Beckstaiiy Tracy baa decided to build the triple screw cruiser provided for iu thenaval appropriation. It iB expeoted to be the fastest naval vessel afloat. Ik distributing the appropriation of 400,000 by Congress for "arming and equipping the military" the Secretary of War has appropriated $23,188 to Pennsylvania, $2,819 to Delaware and $8,456 to New Jersey. The Duohess of Marlborough has applied for $75,000 more from the estate of her first busband, the late Louis C. Bam-mersley. As the prinoipal of the estate is over $3,000,000, it is likely the Duchess will get what she waots, Mas. Cleveland has been out blue-fishiog and has caught a One fish. Mr. Cleveland has long been fishing for bigger game tban bluefisb, but the indications are that he will get a good deal of experience in hia quest, and nothing else. Tub bill authorizing the Director of the Mint to change the patterns and designs of all except our gold coin having passed the House and been reported favorably by the Senate, will doubtless become a law by the President's approval. Its passage will give general satisfaction. Dumsa the past year, ninety-four American colleges received in gifts and bequests, the sum of $3,624,579 increasing the endowment of these ninety-four colleges to $51,765,449. The most amply endowed of them all iB Columbia college in New York City, whioh has a fund of about $7,000,000, bearing interest and $2,-000,000 whioh does not. No country in the world devotes so much money to educational purposes as our own. Tiie officers and orew of the German hwflr J. C. Warns, which had a oargo valued at $400,00U, were one oy one mmm down sick with dropsy at sea. The oargo of coffee and spice becoming damp exhaled a poisonous vapor, which caused the illness. The captain died, then the first mate. The prostrated orew, at this mortality, mutinied, and demanded that the vessel should be put about and taken into a European port. A young man of only twenty-two was the seoood mate, and tbea be showed his mettle. He assumed command, at the point of a revolver induced the mutineers to proceed on the voysge, and finally brongbt the vessel, with its valuable cargo, into New York safely from the East Indies. Bucb indomitable pluck is sure to make iU mart. Officers Elected. An eleotion for officers of Camp 195, P. O. S. of A., held last nigbt resulted as follows: Past President, II. E.

THE BILL "WOULD NOT BE SECTIONAL Plcnlelng at the Grove. A number of young people from this city spent yesterday pionioing in Strayer's Grove. The day was spent in playing the various games that help to make a day in the woods pleasant. All returned home in the evening bigbly pleased at the way the pionic passed off. Crashed Between Car*.

All friends of the "Y'a" are invited and a pleasant evening is anticipated. In the Opinion or tbe Advocates or the Meaeare it More Grave and Serious Subject Never Came TJp Before tbe Douse -Principles or the Bill and Why II Should Become a Law. Washington, June 26.-After tbe disposition of some routine business in the House, tbe regular order being demanded, Mr. Lodge began the debate upon the National Election bill. He said that he did not think a more grave and serious subject had ever come before tbe House. It demanded eerions and deliberate treatment. fl� had no personalities or reflections to make, but desired to treat the question dispassionately. The bill proposed to ex. tend existing laws regarding the election of members so that they would be effective throughout the United States whenever the people wanted them so extended. He proceeded to sketch the plan of the bill in outline. No local machinery was disturbed, he said, ballots were to be oast as at present, and no secret ballot system was to be interfered with where it now prevailed. Everything that conoerned tbe Government Bhould be open. The business of the people must not be transacted in dim corners, but openly and before tbe people's eyes. Tbe assurance of honest elections lay in making public every step and act by which the representatives of the people were chosoo to their high office. PBIHCirLES OF THE BILL. To secure publicity at every stage of tbe election, therefore, was the leading principle of the bill. Under its terms concealment became impossible without a resort to violence, and violence was itself publicity. As to the power of Congress to enact suoh legislation, the Constitution and tbe decisions of the Supreme Court were absolutely conclusive. Tbe power was found in section 4, article 1, of tbe and manner of electing Representatives. It was not enough that elections were fair. They must be known to be fair. The question of the expediency was a most important one. It bad been charged that the bill was sectional. Observing the heat of certain persons and newspapers and their vehemenoe, he wsb led to remember that suspicion always came to guilty minds. The acts which it was proposed to extend had been ealled into existence by the gigantic fraud* in the city of New York prior to 1870 and 1871. That certainly was not a sectional origin in the seuBe that the charge was now made. frauds ik sew tohk. Mr. Lodge gave a description of tbe state of affairs at that time in New York oity, citing among other oases the Tenth district of the Sixth ward, where, be said, tbe Democratic vote (after throwing out all of the other votes) was 884, or fourteen more than the total number of every man, woman and child resident in the district. The legislation enaoted to meet those frauds had been of enormous value to tbe cause of honest elections. There were other cities and districts where tbe law was needed-investigation iu oue case had revealed in a patent locked ballot box the cuffs and buttons of an inspector of elections. In his own State thero has boeu complaints of the registration system, and accusations bad been made that the lists were not right. Ir they were not right, tbe bill would remedy tbe wrong, lie did not believe that anybody or party, honest in intention or purpose, would be afraid to have the truth and the whole truth known. TBE SECRET BALLOT. The other side had oritioized the frauds committed in Northern oitiea. He would put the seoret offioial ballot in use in every eleotion district, becanBe he believed that was the only way to stop tbe use of money in elections. It must not be supposed that legislation against bribery must be national in its character. The bill, however, went as far as possible towards meeting that evilf lie asked the geotlemen who were so warm in their denunciation of corruption and bribery to unite with bim in attaoking those and other evils besetiog elections. Aa to tbe Southern States it was apparent - that many people believed that great frauds were there committed. If the belief that such a thing as a fair elootion in tbe Soutb was unknown, then it was high time the United States should put a stop to the evil, If it had to exeroise every power in the Constitution put into its bands. Its auther, Hemphill, of South Caro-{lina, repliod to his argnmonts.  Rowel!, of Illinois, spoke in favor of, and Shellback, of New Jersey, and Tucker, of Virginia, against it. Bingham, of Pennsylvania, reported tbe Senate amendments to the Postofflce ap- propriation bill, and on hie motion tbey were non-concurred in mid a conference ordered. Tbe bill for the admission of Wyoming and Idaho as States was again considered in the House to-day. It was agreed to vote on it at 4 o'clock to-morrow. A number of bills were taken from the ealendar and passed. NEABING THK TICSISIS. The Miners at. Dunbar Will Enter the Mine This Morning. Dl'nuak, June 26.-At last tbe end seems to be near. The miners in the solid ooal, whioh forma the line between tbe Mahoning and tbe Hill Farm mines, at six o'clock this evening bad gone seven feet in the ooal and the drill bole had been advanoed ten feet. The ooal was solid and hard and up to that time It was on-necessary to timber any of tbe coal. If it continues aa favorable the men will be through sometime in the early morning hours. Then all depends on what tbey find on tbe other side. If there is no gas the work of reoovery will proceod very rapidly. If gases are there it may be several hoars before the fate of the men is known. For two days twenty men have been outting a tunnel bom tbe Ferguson mine to the Hill Farm mine in another direction than those in tbe Mahoning mine. Their intentions have been kept very quiet, as their plan was very dangerous. At 10 o'clock to-night they reached within two feet of the Hill Farm mine and were stopped by the authorities. Testing machines were taken into the tunnel, a drill was forced through into the mine and a bag of air from tbe Hill Farm mine was taken out for testing. The bole was then plugged.

Chemically, the apple Is composed of vegetable fibre, albumen, sugar, gam mello eaid, gallic sold, lime and mueh water. Furthermore, the German analyst* say that the apple eontains * larger per- fruit or vegetable. This phosphorus is admirably adapted for renewing the east tial nervous matter of the brain and spinal chord. It is, perhaps, for the same reason rudely understood that old Scandinavian traditions represent the apple as the food of the gods, who, when they felt them, serves to be growing feeble and infirm, resorted to this fruit for renewing their powers of mind sod body. Also, the acids of tbe spple are of signal as* foe men of sedentary habits, whose livers are sluggish in action; those acids serving to eliminate from the body noxious matters, which, if retained, would make tbe brain heavy and dull, or bring about jaundice or Bkin eruptions and other allied troubles.

Chicago, Jane 26.-A crisis in the big strike of ths Illinois Central train man was reached this evening. After an all dsy session the conference between the strikers' committee and Illinois Central officials ended with a positive refusal on the part of the railroad company to discharge Superintendent Russell. This was tbe ultimatum as far the company waa conoernexl. The ultimatum of the employes, and indeed the occasion of the strike, bad been tbe demand for Russell's discharge, the reason given being his alleged general ob-noxloasness. When the conference broke op tbe men went st one* to Eighteenth street to report the result at the strikers' headquarters. THE ST IKE MAT SPREAD. Then is danger that nnless ths strike is, settled soon it will spread to other roads. The Big Four, which bas a trackage arrangement with the Illinois Central, finding its business obstructed by the Illinois Central strike, has made an arrangement with the Chicago & Eastern Illinois road to handle its Chisago feigbt. Forty ears of live stock were brought in under this arrangement. The strikers suspected that tbe Illinois Central was also using the Cbioago & Eastern Illinois tracks and sent word to the switchmen of that road not to handle Illinois Central oars. The reqnest wss complied with, and the Eastern Illinois switohmen refused to handle any more Big Four oars. Thirteen cars of perishable freight are sidetracked at Kankakee. TUB CABBTINO OF MAILS.. send mails exoept upon regular passenger traina and yesterday trains with only, the mail and express ears were sent out. This action was the result of notice from ths local postoffios officials that the road would be held responsible under the law whioh in this ease provides for . a fine equal to tb* amount which the road re oeivesper day for carrying the mails for esob train not sent out. Superintendent Whit* of the railway division ot the post, office says the road will be compelled to psy this fine for not sending ont its mail trains Tuesday. THB DELATED FBBIQHTS.

Committee* of trainmen from several roads inoluding the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul and the Cbioago, St. Paul and Kansas City, with, whioh road Superintendent Russell was at on* time on aeoted, have offered to make the strike general unless the trouble is settled at once. Tbe men on the roads named said Russell had proved obnoxious to them when their superior officer and tbey had forced him off these roads. THE ILLINOIS CENTRAL STRIKE.
