Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - July 2, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania ninth yeak-no-11)5. lock haven, pa.. wednesday. july'2, 1890. price-two gents evening EXPiiKsis j THE SITUATION AT SCRANTON KINSLOK BKOTHKKS - - - l'UBLISIIEUS CURRENT COMMENT. The l*ennsylvauia oleotion laws are the fairest aud best of nny which wo have knowledge, but they are not so good that they cannot bo improved. The best informed politicians At Wash iugton all agree in the opiuion that there is now little hope ot au adjournment of Congress before the first of September. Thk Maine Prohibitionists have just met in State Convention, aud in their platform is the statement that the Prohibition law "ib priotically nullified In the cities and large towns in Maine." Half a million dollars' worth of machinery for a sugar beet plant to be erected at Grand Island, Nebraska, is on its way from Germany. The sugar problem will soou be solved for this country. Some lunatic has drawu up, and Sena tor Cockrell has introduced a bill, which would establish a printing Office at every post-office in the land to do the printing of the people at cost. That beats the silver bill ten to one. The death of a whole family iu'Wilkes-barre from eating sausages purchased of a Hungarian butcher indicates the need of Borne inspection of that kind of food, which from its very construction, permits the casings to conceal whatever vile com pounds cupidity or ignorance may fill them with. Two more new States will shortly be admitted to the TJuiori, Wyoming and Idaho. This will be six new members admitted intotho Federation of States within a year. Such a thing never occurred in our history, and will never occur again, as our remaining Territories are few in mini ber making such a.thing impossible. In spite of their hatred, Democratic editors can't help paying Speaker Reed a compliment now and then. The latest democratic description of the man with the clear head and the cool nerves who keeps the House in order likens him to the "rock of Gibraltar." As everybody knows, the rock of Gib raits r can neither be shaken , nor taken. Neither can Speaker Rued. Ik the cities of New York, Chicago and Philadelphia there is a population greater than there was in the whole country one hundred years ago. And still the growth of cities has not been ont of proportion with the country. Nor has the population outrun or even kept up with manufacturers and trade nor equalled the strides in science, knowledge and civilization. There must be a good deal of a change going on in the local political sentiment of South Carolina when the *'favorite son" of the Palmetto State, Wade Hampton, is howled down at a Democratic mass meeting at home. This was his experience in the town of Aiken on Saturday night, where he was openly insulted by hundreds of the members ot his own party, and to'M to go back to Washington and not meddle with State affairs. The Hole Carriages. The hose carriages of Hope and Good Will companies were damaged so badly by the flood that repairs were necessary and for some time they have been at the carriage shop of H. A. Brown & Brothers. Last evening Good Will company pulled their carriage up Main street to their hose house, bright with fresh paint and having the appearance of a new carriage. The Good Will boys will take the carriage with tbem to Williamsport on the Fourth Killed by the Cars.

Working Tooth and IN'all In Opposition to the Ex-Governor, and Says That Wulliice In a Sure Wlnner-Tlie Latest Points Concerning the Contest - The Flat form Being Prepared-Some of Its Provisions. Sckakton, July 1.-The hosts of Wallace aud Pattison meu are sweltering tonight and are working hard for their respective candidates. The crush is at the Wyoming Valley House, Wallace headquarters, where also are located the head, quarters of State Chairman Kisuer and all the division headquarters. Things were very quiet all day around the PattiBon headquarters at the Westminister Hotel, and it is easy to see that all the boomers are working for Wallace. Although the Pattison men are confident, they do not express themselves with the confidence the Wallace men do. It is admitted to night to be a close fight with the chances in favor of Wallace, and tho growing sentiment aeeros to be "Any man to beat Pattison.'' The convention meets to morrow at ten o'clock, but it is not likely they will do more than appoint a committee on platform, contested seats and organization. Ex-Senator W- W. Hart, of Lycoming, | is booked as one of the committeemen on j oontested seats. ' Maxwell Stephenson, of Philadelphia, is here working like a beaver for Wallace, j and says Wallace is a sure winner. | a platform being fuefared. Sckaxton, July 1. - Ex-Postmaster MeyerB, of Harrisburg, has been working with the Executive Committee of the State Committee on material for a platform for the party. Among other things the committee has determined to recommend a plank favoring ballot reform, and the calling of a constitutional convention for the removal of the marked ballot clause, from the constitution. A strong tariff reform plank will bo incorporated, calling for the removal of the tariff from raw material. Local tax reform will be advocated and a declaration made for equalization of taxes for county, municipal and township pur-poses, in order that unjust discrimination against land values in favor of certain kinds of personal property made by existing laws may be corrected, and that the farmer may be relieved of the double tax on the value of his farm and the principal of the mortgage that may stand against it; it will demand that the law requiring the surplus in the State Treasury to be invested in State and United States bonds be observed and executed. President Cleveland's administration w ill be endorsed and compared with Harrison's. On the Silver question it will declare in favor of such policy in the coinage of silver as will keep both gold and Bilver coins in circulation or Treasury notes redeemable in tho same. It will declare the right of all yuutbs to be appointed to a trade without distinction, except as to merit. There will be a plank depreciating and denouncing the unequal apportionment of districts for the election of Congressmen, aud expressing the belief that the voters of the State should be allowed to make their own apportionment which they could do if no apportionment were made by law, and each voter were permitted ta oast one vote for the candidate for Congress and no more. It will also contain the following: "We accept the issue of Quayism tendered by the late Republican State Convention, and we arraign the Republican party for its usurpation of the powers in the administration of the Federal Government, which the people and the state have not granted, j for placing In the bands of the dictator in j the chair of the Speaker of the Federal ' House of Representatives the power to legiBlato for tho representatives of the whole people; for its open disregard for the provisions of the Civil Service law which the President of its choice was solemnly pledged to support; for its failure to fulfill its promises to the honorably -discharged soldiers of the union; for its ceaseless of forts to promote sectional stiife and dis turb the tranquility of the country; forits lavmh and reckless expenditure of public monies; for its passage through the House of Representatives of a tariff bill which increases the taxes on neeessaries and reduces only those laid upon luxuries; for its failure to enforce laws against the importation of contract and pauper laborers; for its attempt to pass a federal election law designed to excite a race war, and finally and especially fur it� indifference to the rights of labor; its failure to enforce articles 1C and 17 of the Constitution by proper legislation; its corrupt methods in popular elections and its wringing sub- so rv leu cy to a party busa who stands mute before tho mobt terrible inculpation ever oharged against a public official." PATTISON'S BRIGHT FRONFECTS. Wallace's Friends Virtually Give Up the Contest. Sckakton, July 1.-A special to the Philadelphia Time* says: The lato indications thin evening are that Pattison will be nominated, probably on the first ballot. The tide, which has been running in his direction eiuce it became apparent that Delamater would be nominated by the Republicans, is stronger than ever. Wallace has done everything in bis power to stem it to-day, to little purpose. He has had tho politicians shouting and working for him all day, but louder than the shouts and stronger than the pressure brought to hear by the old party leaders has been the popular demand that the man who led the party to its only great victory in thirty years should be once more made the standard-bearer. The weak places in the Pattison lines have been closed up by this demand, until tonight the Pattison leaders not only reaffirm their estimate of last night, but declare that tho vote will be greater than their claim at that time. It is understood that Wallace himself has given up the contest as hopeless, so far as his candidacy is concerned, and is seeking a line of retreat by combining his forces with those of Black, Hansel and Wright to nominate Judge Clark, of tho Supreme bench, with very little prospect of being able to accomplish it. Some of his friends were seeking the members of the Indiana delegation tonight to place Clark iu nomination, but as they were instructed to vote for Pattison it is not certain that tboy can be induced to do this. It is conceded Clark would make an excellent candidate, but it looks to-uight as though Pattisou would swoep the convention, no matter what dark horses are trotted out or what combinations are made. At the conference to-night it was agreed by the Pattison men to vote for Cox for temporary chairman and Harrity for permanent chairman of the convention. OUR LOCAL DRAG NET.

The Contest or the Literary Societleit rrov.. an Interesting Feature. The Price and Shakespeare Literary Societies met last night in friendly contest in the Normal Chapel. The Axe-Makers' band of Mill Hall appeared on the gronnds at 15 minuteB to 8 o'olook, and marched at onee to the chapel, Shortly after 8 o'olook Dr. Eldon escorted the contestants to the stage. The exercises were opened with an overture by the band. After prayer by Rev. Mr. Wood, of Trinity.M. E. Church, Prof. Reimer and Miss Muse McCormick rendered "Belisario" on two pianos. This was well executed and evinced a snperior order of talent on the part of the players, It was considered by some the gem of the evening. Miss Tomlinson was then introduced, and read an essay on "The Problems of Life." This was marked by originality and showed careful preparation. Miss Nellie Hanna in well chosen words next told the audience about '.'The World's Fair." Following this was vocal solo, "Florian'a Song," by Miss Musser. This was sung in a pleasing manner and was well received. Next came tbe orators, Mr. Orr Davis and Mr. Geo. Rosenberry. Both gentlemen had good orations. The quartette that followed by Misses Musser and Hanna and Messrs. Greninger and Longneoker was loudly applauded and in response to an encore another fine selection was rendered. This was followed by the debate. The question was, "Resolved, That Mormon-ism is opposed to tbe Spirit of American Institutions." Mr. D. W. Anderson upheld tbe affirmative and showed olearly that Mormonism was a blot on our civilization. Mr. Wright on the negative had the unpopular side of the question and his remarks did not enhance its popularity. A member of the band next favored the audieuco with a baritone solo. The recitations followed. Miss Musser recited "Kate Shelly" with muoh force and earnestness. Misb Edmiston recited "Naughty Briar Rose" in a pleasing and graceful manner. White the band played another selection the judges, J. B. G. Kinsloe, of the Re publican, Rev. J. A. Wood, of Trinity M. E. Church and Mr. Hal. Elapp retired for deliberation. In a few moments the judges retnrned and Mr. Wood announced the decision. He complimented both societies and made special mention of the piano dnetts. The following numbers were pronounced tbe best by tho judges: "Tbe World's Fair," Miss-Nellie P. Hanna; "Man's Worth in the Nineteenth Century," Mr. Goj. Rosenberry. Tho affirmative arguments in tho debate, Mr. D. W. Anderson and "Briar Rose," MIbb Estella Edmiston. Each society thus won two nnmbers. This was a pleasing result and each society may now bo encouraged. The muaie of the band desreves special mention. Every number was good, and appreciated by the audience. On tbe whole, the oontest, with the exception of one or two numbers, was equal to those that have been given heretofore. Young people nhould always remember that whatever is to be rendered in public must be carefully prepared. It must bo as perfeot as it can be made. An audience has no patience with blunders that were in no way necessary or excusable. While the oxeroises last night were good and enjoyed by all, there was still roem for improve-mont. The'o always is. Even when we think we are doing our best, we may still do better. Lot both societies go to work with renewed energy and determine to mako the next contest even better than this. We extend our congratulations to both societies and earnestly hope that the coming year will be one of even greater profit to all. Bravo, Prioe! Bravo; Shakespeare! rostoffice Bobbery.
