   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - June 30, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                NINTH YEA3J-NO. 103. JLOCK HAVEN, PA.. MONDAY. JUNE 30, 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS: EVENING EXP11ESS KIN8LOB BROTHKB8---PUBLISHERS CURRENT COMMENT. Speaker Reed in his flannel shirt is a man with tho courage of hia coDviotions. The embezzling-8tate Treasurer of Mississippi has been sentenced to five years' imprisonment. Hia thefts were comparatively small ones, and therefore made him a fit object for imprisonment. When we bare a dozen Philadelphias and Baltimores ready to sweep the commerce of an; hostile nation off the seas, the naval foroe of the United States will tie something for which foreign governments will feel a profound respeot. In passing the bill granting fifteen days annual vaoatioo with pay far clerks in first and second olasa post offices, the House has performed .an aot of justice that will earn for it tbe thanks of these faithful and hardworking public servants. The measure should be promptly passed by tbe Senate. � In the London Timber Irade't Journal we observe that the Eail of Cawdor sold the timber grown by himself on 300 acres of mountain land In Scotland for sixteen thousand pounds sterling, or (30,000. Before this sale this same timber had undergone repea'ed trimmings, which also realizep the owner large sums. This land was valueless for agricultural purposes, and would not have eold for as much as did tbe timber which stood on it. It is another example of the amount of money which oan be made by timber planting on lands unsuitable for general agricultural purposes. The best evidence of a man's popularity iB found at bis home. There is a Scriptural quotation to the effect that a prophet is Dot without honor save in his own country. He must be a very extraordinary man who is not only honored by ttoee from a distance but whose fellow citizens rejoice that be is so honored and manifest their pleasure in an unmistakable way. Such a man is Wallace Delamater. When it was learned in Meadville that he had been nominated for Governor by the great Republican party of Pennsylvania the eiti- j zees,* irrespective of party, met and rejoiced and showed in various demonstrative ways their great pleasure. Such a man will win._ The approximate population of Lock Haven given in to-day's Express will no doubt be a disappointment to many persons, although to those who have made calculations from tbe last Presidential vote it is jut about what was expected. Tbe vote in this oity at the Presidential election in 1888 was 1507, and with a population of 7,200 the percentage of persons would be 4.8. This is the average percentage in a large number of oites. The j inoresse in Lock Haven's population sinoe 1880 is almost 25 per cent, which is very satisfactory considering that we have had no "boom" to help it along. Tha gain has been steady and tbe next ten years promises to give us an increase far ibove 25 per cent._ The Fourth mt Tyrone. Oreat preparations are being made at Tyrone for the P. O. S. of A, anniversary association which is to be held there on that day. The association comprises tbe camps in Lycoming, Clinton, Centre, Elk, Clearfield, Cameron and Blair eounties.

Mrs. Minerva Young, widow of tbe late Tbom as Toung, will move ber bonsebold goods to Brookwayville today, which pis ce she intend* to make ber future borne; A Mob of Two Hundred Men, Mostly I>1 cnised. Sarronnd a Village mod Attempt to exterminate the Objectionable Colored Men-One Shot Dead and Several Wounded-Other News. Amite, La., June 29.-About 7 o'clock Saturday morning several gun shots wore heard about a mile above the town. Shortly after George Howard, the most desperate negro in the parish, came in on a wagon, wounded with a WinoheBter ball, and reported that be had been intercepted ou the way to woi k by an armed posse of whites. Within five miuutes after Howard arrived there was a simultaneous charge into the town from- every road of armed men, numberiug about 200. The greater part were disguised. T'^ey surrounded the important squares of the town, threw out their pickets, anal asked tbe whereabouts of Henry Daniels, Sack Tayior, Dug Tillis and George Howard. An armed posse of ten or fifteen were sent at once in search of tbem. Howard was found in Tom Sewall's gardou. He refused to surrender and was killed. Two of the horses of tho party were wounded by shots from the garden at the time the shooting was going on, yet there was no gun found by Howard. Two other negroes, Jaks Ranson and Todd Flanders, were wounded at the same time. Dug Tillis was found, and he with two other bad negroes, wore taken to the out-skirts of the corporation, whipped and ordered to leave. Armed squads were then sent out and captured the arms of tbe suspicious colored people. Eighteen or twenty double barreled guns, two Winchester rifles and a number of pistols were taken. Tbe repeated threats on the part of the negroes against the whites, the firing upon a committee of whites, the cruel beating of a white child by a negro man a few days ago and their making arsenals of tbeir homes so incensed tbe whites that they concluded they would bear it no longer, but would meet tbe issue as they did.  Everything is quiet now. A FATAL WBECK. Spreading; Bails Besnlt In the Lost of Two Lives~Many Injured. Nkvada, Mo, June 29-The Missouri Paoific passenger train was wrecked five miles Irom here yesterday afternoon by tbe spreading of the rails on a sharp o-irve. Three coaohes were precipitated down an embankment, aod two people fatally and twenty-seven more or less dangerously hurt. A special train bearing surgeons went to their relief. Those fatally hurt were Conductor Sam Jones and a child of W. H. Marrows, both of Kansas City. The most seriously injured weie: John EdmuudB, Lincoln, Illinois, badly huit about the faoe and bead ; Dr. J. T. Biells, head and left side bruised; Gus Artliff, EansaB City, leg badly biuised; T. H. 8mith, Chicago, hips bruised and cut; A B. Walker, Butler, Missouri, seriously injured; Misses Bodie and Hattie Mountjoy, Lexington, Missouri, both internally injured; Mrs. E. B. Ray, Daerfiold, Missouri, badly injured about the body; W. H. Marvibs, Kansas City, and Miss Minnie McFarland, Butter, dangerously hurt. Congressional Probabilities. Washington, June 29.-Senator Morrill said yesterday -bat he would call up the Tariff bill in tbe Senate to-morrow, but the probabilities are tbe debate on that measure will not begin before Monday of next week, as tbe Senate will be ocoupied with appropriation bills during the greater part of this week. Of the general business the bill for the admission of Idaho has first place on the calendar, and will be taken up at the earliest opportunity. As in tbe case of the Wyotniug bill, the Republicans will not digcuss it at length, submitting it upon the report of the Committee on Territories. After it is disposed of the River and Harbor bill will be taken up, tbe present program oontem. plating its consideration before entering upon the tariff debate. As Frid.ay will be the Fourth of July, an adjournment of tbe senate from Thursday until Monday is probable, although this has not been definitely decided upon. It is tbe confident expectation of the members of tbe House that there will be only a four day session this week. The House has its work well in baud, and as a probability that this session of Congress will bo unusually protraoted has now becomo practically a certainty, there is a strong desire on the part uf the mem bers to take advantage of the Fourth of July coming on Friday to secuie a vacation of a few days during tbe heated term. The speaker himself lavors adjournment over until Monday. The House therefore has one legislative day only during the coming week at its disposal, the first three days under rule beiug set apart for further consideration of the Federal Election bill. The rules committee lias considered what it shall do with this one day, Thursday, but has aot yet definitely deoid-ed what measure Bhall get the benefit of it. i BACCALAUREATE SERVICES. A Cool Breeie at Chicago. Chicago, June 29.-A cool breeze be ginning late this afternoon ended tbe heated term in this city, at least tempor-rarilly. The breeze did not put in an appearance, however, until tbe exoessive heat had made a record of eight fatal cases of prostration In tbe oity since daylight. A large number of these persons euooumbed, but up to this evening no oib-er deaths were reported. Tbe preceding twenty-four hours marked the culmination of an almost unheard of period of warmth.

Later-Four more deaths were reported up to midnight. bt. LOCia badly roasted. St. Louis, June 21.-The warm weather which has prevailed in this city for a week past was oheoked somewhat this afternoon by a heavy shower which cooled off the atmosphere to a considerable extent, but there is still a great deal of suffering, as immediately after the rain tbe clouds disappeared and the sun sent the thermometer up to the one hundred mark again.

A Large Audience Assemble in tha Normal Ohapel Last Night. GOOD ADVI0E FROM BET. NE8BITT. To the Graduating Class, Which Was Listened to With Rapt AUantloa-The Exercises of the Week-Junior Contest-A Belated Train-The Fourth at Tyrone-Disability Bill Approved. A good audience assembled last night in tbe Normal chapel to listen to tbe Bao-oalaureate sermon of Rev. Dr. - Nesbltt. At fifteen miuutes to eight o'olock tbe Seniors marohed In and ocoupied seats in front, reserved for them. Prof. Reimer presided at the organ and a choir of students oooupied seats in front and led the singing. Tbe services were opened with a quartette sung by Misses Musser and Dillon and Messrs. Chambers and Greninger. Rev. Mr. Wood, of the Methodist cburoh, assisted in the devotional exercises. Rev. Dr. Nesbitt chose for his text, John 4, 38: "I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labor-other men labored and ye are entered into their labors.-' Tbe reverend gentleman dwelt particularly ou the last clause of the verse and dearly and forcibly unfolded his theme: "The Debt of the Present to the Past." Tbe Doctor showed that from a secular and religious point of view the debt of tbe present to the past is such that we of today deserve very little credit either for our attainments or achievements. The discourse abounded in illustrations from Bcience, theology, history, ssored and profane, and was a masterpiece worthy of tbe speaker and tbe occasion and eminently suggestive to those just starting out on the journey of life and' entering into the labors of other men. The address to tbe graduating olass was especially felicitous and impressive. Every word was listened to with attention and we hope the words spoken and the admonitions given will be lodestars to all who were present. Tbe commencement exercises are now fairly inaugurated and may tbe high keynote struck last night be but an earnest of good things yet to come. On Tuesday evening the literary societies meet in annual contest Judges will be chosen from the audience aud tbeir decision given after tbe exercises. The Axe-Makers' Band of Mill Hall will furnish ohoice selections during the evening. All are invited to be present. The Board of Health. At tbe last meeting of the Board of Health Council's Finance Committee, City Solicitor Brow n and Mayor Mason were present. A code of rules and regulations were agreed upon, which will b� submitted to Council with a report requesting tbeir adoption in the form of an ordinance. Tbe Board of Health is an important branch of tbe oity government and this is the time of year when all precautions possible should be taken in order to keep the city in good sanitary condition. If Counoil adopts the ordinance recommended the Health Board will see to it that no nuisances exist which would endanger the health of th e people. Sylvan Qrove. Strayer's Sylvan Grove at Castanea, has been fitted up with tables, sheds for protection in time of sudden showers, and other conveniences for picnicors this season. Permission to use tbe grounds may be obtained by applying to Mrs. A. H. Strayer. Disability Bill Approved. Toe Disability Pension Bill was approv ed by President Harrison last Friday. The act grants pensions to soldiers who are inoapiated for tbe performance of labor, and provides for pensions to widows, minor children and dependent parents. General Hastings' Match. Prof. W. F. Beok has added another pieoe of instrumental music to his list of publications, the latest entitled "General Hastings' Maroh," for piano or organ. The musio is Cor sale at Smart's musio store. Mac. Keller's Jewelry Store. The jewelry storo of Mao Keller is beiug improved by painters and paper hangers to-day. Tho work interferes somewhat with busiuoss. but tbe improvement in tbe aprearanco of tbe store will be great. A Belated Train. Erie Mail yesterday did not reaoh this oity nntil nearly 12 o'olock.   Tbe delay was oaused by a wreck on the eastern division. Thanks Extended. Mr. J. E. Blesb aud family return thanks to all their friends and neighbors who assisted thorn in their bereavement.

If tbe doctor cures, the son i if he kills, the earth hides it. it, but Frank Jones, whom everybody knows as "Si Perkins," is completing a new play to take tbe place of "Si Perkins." Tbe new one is "Our Country Cousin." The story of tbe plot begins in Hancock county. West Virginia, and embraces points as far up tbe river as Pittsburgh. Mr. Jones admits his new play as being far ahead of "Si Perkins." It will bo put on tbe stage at the Rochester Opera House early tbe coming Fall and is destined to be a great hit. Milk shakes are out of date. Shad is but a sweet memory. * Fresh tomato oatsup is extant. Perfumod kid gloves are to come.

Tbe sixe of the summer hata for ladies is so large that one has to take a ladder to ehurch in order to see the preacher. The wedding season is on tbe wane, but thousands are getting ready for the next season. There is always a full crop of matrimonial engagements. The Franklin Evening Hem says: "The timid girl has no business trying to ride a bicycle. Tbe girl 'who ought to have been a boy' makes the beat bicycle rider." �� --- For Toung Girls. The following, which appeared in an exchange, should be read with oare by those who think they are capable of choosiig for themselves.  It says: While walking down street tbe other day behind a couple of very young girls one was beard to say:' "Now, don't tell; if my mother gets to bear I go there she will give it to me good 1" From tbls and other remarks it was shown that she was in the habit of keeping company aod going to places that ber mother disapproved of. In this she was gnilty of deception and disobedience and falling into the'dan-gerous habit of associating with objectionable persons. When young girls begin to conceal things from their mothers and set up tbeir wills in opposition in regard to their associates they are on tbe high way to ruin and there is every reason lor their friends to tremble for tbeir future. Mothers, instruot your children to oonfide in you, and girls, never go anywhere or do anything that yon cannot tell yonr mother all about it. Tbis is tbe only safe course, and applies to boys as well as girls. There's a Diamond In Her Tooth. Pretty Lillian Rivers, whooreated a sensation abont a year ago by effecting her escape from tho Bethany Female College at Topeka, Kansas, and going on the stage, dazzled promenaders on Chestnut street the other day by a flashing diamond surrounded by a rim of gold, set in tho first lateral tooth on tbe left side. The novelty of having the brilliant gem in ber mouth has cost Miss Rivers not only a large sum of money, but the endurance of more than a week of almost continuous pain. A bed had to be bored out in tbe body of tbe tooth to countersink a half-karat diamond in tbe cavity. This was bordered witb gold. The entire operation, including the diamond, coat (300.

LOCK HAYEK'S POPULATION Oensns Supervisor Bricker Gives Approximate Figures on our Site. A NET SAIN OF NEARLY 0NE-F0UBTH fthe) n'a. V Lock Haven Will Have 7200, an Increase of 1355 over 18S0-Tbe Greatest Gain In the Fourth Ward-The City In a Healthy and Prosperous Condition-Drawing for a Pitcher, Captain P. D. Bricker, supervisor of the sixth census district, has forwarded to the Express the following as an approximate estimate of the population of Look Haven, and which fully explains itself: Office of Supervibb of the Census fob the 6th District of Pekn Jersey Shore, Pa., June 30, '90. To J. B. O. Ktntlot, Lock Baven, Fa. : Mt Dear Srs:-The approximate population of ypur city is as follows, to wit: I    Pop. '�0, Pop. '80 Gain. Fr. 1% 1st Ward...... 2063   1696   366   .21* 2nd Ward..... 1772   1417   355   .25 3d Ward......  1507    1302   205    .15{ 4th Ward..... 1859   1430   429   .30 Totals..... 7200   5845  1353   .23, Gain, 23} per eent. Official figures will vary but little from this.  Renovo is yet incomplete in one of the wards, and therefore cannot give you a close approximate. -Yours Respectfully, P. S. Bricker, Sup. Census,6tb Diet, Pa, As will be seen from the above tbe Fourth ward leads In gain, having increas-at the rate of 80 per eent. The villages of Castanea, Flemington, Lockport and Dunnstown are really suburbs of Lock Haven aud tbeir population, if credited to tbe city, on the basis of the last census would give Look Haven nearly 9,000 of a population. All of those places will likely before the next census Is taken become a part of the city territory. The gain of 1,351 in the last ten years is a good showing. There has been no unusual boom to bring in an inorease of population, but the growth has been steady and ahowa that the city Is in a healthy and prosperous condition. Altogether our people are likely to be well pleased; with the gain in population as shown by the census or 1890. Taw Normal Commencement.
