PBICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINSLOK BKOTHKRS---pUBUSUKKS CURRENT COMMENT. ANVIJOliY else who wants to buy the State of Louisiana will have to treat with the Lottery men hereafter. According to Superintendent of the Census Porter the population of this Nation is 61,500,000, which is another wson why we spell Nation with a big: N. The  aeroi-annual   report that   Mr. , Blaine will ntBign from the Cabinet has onoe more been put in circulation for light summer reading and aa promptly denied. Tqe World's Fair Commission at Chicago b�> done well in selecting Hon. Thomas W. Palmer, of Michigan, aa its president. Mr. Palmer is a man of energy, enterprise and liberal ideas, and he will not allow tbs grass to grow under his fee*. lie is a millionaire with a well' stored mind and a patriotic spirit. Got. Campbell, of Ohio, sagely remarks that "Ohio Democrats do not de< pend on Republican discords to win tbeir fight tbia year." That is quite true, Governor. What the Ohio Democrats do de-'pend on to win tbeir fight this year is the moat knavish, outrageous and indefensible gerrymander that ever disgraced a Western State, Is1 any better argument (ban those already adduced were needed to indicate the immensity of the Louisiana lottery swindle, and of the hundreds of thousands of it* victims, it was amply supplied in the acceptance by it of an increased price for its franchise which will coat the company $6,250,000, every dollar of which is to be made out of its dupes. In Oalesbnrg, Illinois, fire brick for paving baa stood the test of six years. The clay there is the best, but the excellence ia in the burning. Galesburg has now about five miles of this kind of pavement, and it has cost literally nothing for repairs daring the six years that the oldest portion! have been in use. Ail the work ia done except the guttering, and all tbe materials furnished for a total of only $1.40 per yard. Deputy Sheriff Malone to-day announces bimaelf as a candidate for the Republican nomination for Sheriff before the ooming County Convention. A. J. Malone baa served as Deputy under Sheriff Leahy and has made an exoellent official, performing bis duties intelligently and promptly. The experience he baa gained while in bfs present position well fita him for Sheriff and if nominated and elected be will perform tbe duties of the office with fidelity. Tbe election of Mr. A. A. McLeod to the Presidency of the Reading Kail road Company in place of Austin Oorbin has not been unexpected. It will be received with general approval aa a wise choice. Mr. McLeod |haa for some time past been the actual executive head of tbe company and he baa shown marked efficiency iu the direetion of its affaire. He ia a man of untiring industry, broad intelligence and thorough knowledge of the railroad busi-ness, and bis sagacious judgment has lifted him to the'chief place in the company at cbe age of forty two. The fight over tbe proposed election bill waxes warm in tbe House. The opposition comes mostly from tbe Representatives in Che Southern States, aided by Northern Democrats. One by one the men of tbe South arise and declare that there are no illegal eleotionB in tbeir StateB and tbat everything is done on tbe square. If such is tbe case and all is lovely, why this determined opposition to tbe proposed law ? If all ia aa it should be, then there ia nothing for tbe law to take bold of and the law will not be called into operation, and ean affect no one unfavorably. Rubber Soles for Rheumatism. Harrlsbnrg- Telegraph. Soling shoes with rubber is the latest scheme of an Italian shoemaker in this eity. A gentleman who suffered severely from rheumatism was advised to have rubber so'es on bis shoes, and after doing so hia rheumatism did not trouble him. Subsequently he wore a pair of shoes with leather soles and tbe old acbes and pains returned to annoy him to suoh aj extent tbat be wa� glad "to fly to rubber soled shoes for relief. He says tbat while be does not claim tbat rubber soles will oure rheumatism, yet be ia oonviuoed that they will prevent it from returning. A Great Tenor's Laryuix. Tbe larynlx of tbe great tenor, Gayarre, who died not long ago in Madrid, was removed after hia deatb, and was found to be of such peculiar formation tbat it will probably be preserved in some Spanish museum. Gayarre received $1,400 a night in opera, the largest salary ever paid a tenor, and his fortune is estimated at $800,-000. He was tbe.son of a blacksmith and a common workman when bis voice first attracted attention, and was only 40 years old when be died. THE DEMOCRATIC CONTEST.

Senator Wallace, while expressing absolute confidence o! winning tbe nomination, thought that there would be several ballots. He said that he had no reason to doubt the correctness of his figures, and did not think he would have to add to them. Tbe figures which SSonator Wallace said he bad no reason to change were 125 votes for bimeelf, Pattiaon 117, doubtful 25. The indications point to the nomination of Pattison, bat there will be a great deal of work don* between now and Wednesday by the factions, and there may be some changes. nineteen contested seats. There are about nineteen contested seats. These will have to be passed upon by the committee on credentials. Seventeen of tbe contestants are Wallace delegates. The fight for these seats promises to be spirited. Both sides are claiming they will have a majority of the committee on contests. The committee will consist of one member from each senatorial district, making fifty in all. * j -Ex-Postmaster Harrity said to-night that Pattisou would have at least 30 of the 50 members, while George McGowan, who is managing the Wallace end of the committee, asserted that Pattiaon would not.bave more than 10 of the members while Wallace would have 31.

At the head of the procession a man carried a banner on which was the inscription: "Governor Rjbert E- Pattison, 40,000 majority." Crowds followed the candidate to his hotel in a blaze of red fire and a rush of Roman oandles acd rockets. After a short reception at the hotel Pattison in answer to calls for a speech from the crowd in the streets, slipped up on the balcony of the Westminister and addressed the crowd as follows: I thank you for this reception, which is an evidence of tbe hospitality of the people of ScranUQ, and congratulate you on the evidence before me of the material prosperity ot,Scraatoa. I am sure at IhiB time you *ill excuse me from saying anything further, aB another opportunity will no doubt be given me to appear before you iu the near future.
