   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - July 3, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                NINTH YEAR-NO. 106. LOCK HAVEN, L'A.. T1IL1WDAY. JULY :J. 1890. PKICE-TWO CENTS evening express the old ticket 1mimted KINSLOE HltOTHKKS---PUBLISH KKS j CURRENT COMMENT. Immigrants coutiuue to arrive by tbe thouBamls.

Governor. Many a young man has beguu the journey to failure in this life and the next by the way of the e!nb room. Kansas farmers have gone into sorghum culture much more extensively this year than last, the acreage being placed at 10,-700 acres againBt (1,300 last year. Better still, the product has b*�eu contracted for by the sugar and molasses makers at remunerative prices. The latest Democratic whine about the Dependent Pension bill is characteristic. It is to the effect that the operation of the act will t=*nd to put some money in the pockets or pension agents. This to Democratic minds, is reason enough for denyiog the old soldiers justice. Pr is Baid that the growth of the*opium habit is something remarkable in some of the large cities of Ibis country. It stated that more than one hundred victims of opium smoking are now coufitied Ward's Island, near New York city, various stages of insanity, the victims of tbe pernicious habit. THE WALLA0EITES GET BADLY LEFT Nothing would render the McKinley tarifl bill so popular as concerted European effort to prevent itB its adoption. It would demonstrate that our European friends fiud free trade in the United States a matter of advantage to themselves, and it would afford the American people a fine opportunity to resent impertinent and nn authorized interference. Prok. Lintnrr, New York State Entomologist, �� dispatch from Albany says, has made a microscopic examination of tbe insect collections of a single electric light, and estimates that the debris which he inspected represented 3.J.00O insect*. "Tbe electric light," says he, "will undoubtedly prove an active agent in tbe reduction of insect pests, and also furnish entomologists with many rare species never before seen." Miss Liluan Blaxche Fearing, the only lady in this year's eraduating class at the Union College of Law in Chicago, is entirely blind. Iler mother has been her constant companion during her course, and read from tbe bookB to ber. It is no smalt honor, uuder tbe circumstances, that Miss Fearing was ranked as one of the fonr stndents whose record was so nearly ecj.ual that the committee appointed to award tbe scholarship prize of (50 decided to divide it among the four. Tbe class bad more than fiifty. It is curious that up to the present time so large, so important and itillueutial a body of men as tbe police department of the United States has bid no special organ ol its own. Every J-rade, profession and occupation that can bo mentioned is rep resented by various periodicals, but the first "Police Journal" has just mado its appearance. It comes from Boston, and proposes to devote itself to tbe interests of the fraternity in general, discussing &U important measures affecting policemen, their doings and welfare. The nomination of Robert E. Pattison for Governor by the Democratic Convention at Scran ton is a victory for William L. Scott and tbe Cleveland wing of the Democracy in this State. The renewed declaration in favor of tariff reform places the party in Pennsylvania in harmony with the Cleveland free trade tactics and puts Pattison on a platform that pleases tbe free traders. The Clevolaudites are in the saddle and they intend to keep a firm hold of tbe Democratic reins id the old Keystone Stito. I'o do this tbey bad to administer another rebuke to William A. Wallace by defeating bim for the Gubernatorial nomination, and in such an emphatic manner as to leave no room for doubt as to who controls tbe machice. Mr. Pattison stands in a different position to-day from that of 1882, Then tbe Ke-publtcan party was distracted with internal dissensions, so much so that an Independent Republican ticket was placed in the field against tbe regular ticket. It was due to this fact that Pattison slipped into the Governor's chair at Uarrisburg, but with a united party no such accident will occur this fall. We greet yon, Ex-Governor Pattison, and expect to see you defeated by an old-fashioned Republican majority. A Long Train. Erie Mail train West this morning was made up of seven coaches, besides the usual number of baggage, mail and express oars. Most of tbe coaches were filled with pasaengera wbo were taking advantage of the holiday excursion rates. The Clearfield .Stutestnnn Knocked out ou tho Tirit Hound bj Hi* ei-Oovcrnor-Ch n tine J F. Itlnck Go It* Second 1*1 acn on the Ticket mid W. H.i;*rcl�y Tor Secretary of Internal ArfalrH, Sciianton, July 5.-Notwithstanding tbe great orovrds of Democrats that bave been filling tbt> streets and hotels for a day or two the Convention Hail was very slow in filling up. This perhaps was due to tbe driving rain storm that broke over the city early this morning and kept up until after tbe hour set for tbe convention. Tbe delegates, workers and lookers on re rnaiued in tbe hotels until uearly 10 o'clock. When State Chairman Kisncr came iuto the hall tire was not a dozen people in tbe galleries and less than half the delegates were in their seats. After 10 o'clock the delegates began to come with a rush and both galleries filled rapidly np. Tbe sentiment was, as it has been all along strongly in favor of Pattison. The Wallace men bad abandoned their claim of 195 delegates for tbeir candidate and said tbe result depended on tbe field. Tbe Pattison men were confident they would win on the first ballot. Tbe Wal laoc men would not concede this and asserted that the field was stronger than Pattison. The Pattison man's bold move in naming William F. Harrity, the leader of their forces, for permanent chairman, was regarded aa a clever stroke of policy. Tbe Wallace men decided to pit Judge Church, of Meadville. against Mr^iarrity. Sir. Church is a strong fricnv of Mr. Wallace's, but he is a Pattison delegate. THE CONVENTION AT WcBK. It was I0:'o0 o'clock when Chairman Kiscbr called the convention to order. Secretary Nead proceeded to call tbe roll of delegates, ucd it rau along smoothly enough until Blair county was reached. There is a contest in that county, and the Pattison men were placed on tho roll. Wber. they were read Mx,.L�idis, one of tbe contestants, demanded to be beard. Lie said the men whose names had been read were not tbe delegates of Blair. Chairman Kisuer instantly called him to order. Then followed a scene of excitement. Tbe galleries hissed and yelled "Let bim talk !" Tbe other contestants demanded "Fair play" in loud and angry voice?. Chairman Kisuer pounded with bis gavel. Ho finally obtained order and got the Blair mau In his seat. Ho then said the contest from Blair county would go to tbe Committee on Credentials where it belonged. After this outbreak the roll ciU ran smoothly to the end, there beiug only occasioned outbursts of applause for some well known delegate, There were a number of substitutions, and at tbe close Chairman Kisner announced tbe election of a temporary oh airman. MR. COXE TKAirOlMKV CUAM.UA>'. Mr. Kubne, of Luzerne, nominated Eckley B. Coxe for temporary chairman and he was elected by acclamation. It was then decided that all resolutions j should be referred to the Committee ou Resolutions without debate. CONTROLLED BY I'ATIISON l'EOPLE. Mr. Sowden moved that a committee on permanent organization, credentials and resolutions be appointed. This was agiced to. The appointment of tho commltteo on credentials was first taken up and tho committee appointed was controlled by Pattison people. After tbe committee hud been uauied Mr. Samuel Josephs, of Philadelphia, moved that when the convention adjourned it should be to meet at 2 o'clock. This was agreed to. The comm'ttea on resolutions and permanent organizations were theu appointed and the convention took a recess until 2 o'clock. THE   AFTEKNOON   SESSION. The Convention Gets Down to KmluepH nnri Noinlnntfld I*att(�on and IS lack. SciiantoN, July 2.-When the convention reconvened the hall was crowded to surTocHtion. Chairman Coxe said the Committee on Organization would he the first report received. William M.Singerly, chairman of that committee, reported the name of William F. Harrity as the unanimous c bo feu for permanent chairman. The temporary secretaries were continued, and the list of vice presidents were elected. When the report had been adopted Chairman Coxe appointed B. F. Meyers, Dauphin, and Parson Church, of Crawford, to escort Permanent Chairman Harrity to the platform. Harrity was given an ovation when be appeared on the platform. Chairman Allen, of tho Committee on Credentials, then submitted bis report, which was udopled after a breezy discussion, during which Mr. Greevy declared that he was no Mugwump. The ahair refused to recognize Dively, of Blair, and was accused of applying tho gag law. Chairman Harrity tbeo called for tho reports of the Committee on ReBolutk.us. Chairman Sliuger tbon read tbe platform. Tbe plank attackiug Senator Quay created great enthusiasm, as did also the plant approving Grover Cleveland's ad ministration. NOMINATIONS FOU GOVERNOR. Tbe platform was unanimously adopted, and Chairman Harrity then announced that nominations for Governor were in order. Judge Orvis, of Centre county, took the platform and nominated William A. Wallace. WilHam S. Stenger then arose to nomi nate Pattison. There were cries of "platform," "platform.,' Mr. Stenger walked down the aisle amid the cheers of tbe Pattison people. His very first sentence awakened tbe greatest outburst of entbu siasm.   He said: "I arise to nominate Robert E. Pattison." The convention went wild. Hand kerchiefs and hats were waved by excited men in the galleries, two delegates opened tbeir umbrellas and waved them. Ex-Senator Jacobs, of Juniata county, seconded tbe nomination of Wallace. He said Wallace would call to the polls 15,-000 more votes than any other candidate who can bo named. He said if Wallace was taken as its standard bearer tho Democratic party should turn tho tide of retrogression and give to the Democrats of tho state an organization such as she had not for years. He was presently interrupted by cheers. Ho was followed by A. G. Dewalt, of Lehigh, who nominated Robert E. Wright. Dr. McCoroiiok, of Lancaster, preseutod the name of William U. U easel, and Senator Brown, of York, named Chauncey F. Black. Michael E. Ryan, of Philadelphia, seconded tbe nomination of Pattison in an able speech, Which created great enthusiasm. Arthur Thatcher, of Philadelphia, seconded Wallace. ItKSL'I.T OK THE  FALLOT. Nominations then olosed and Chairman Harrity ordered the calling of tbe roll. The roll call was followed by intense interest. It became known before tho result was announced by tbe chairman, that Pattison was nominated, and there were cheers by tbe Pattison men. The tellers wore 1411 ito a while making up tbeir counts, and the convention became restless and called to the tellers to hurry up. When finally agreed the audience became siient and listened attentively. Wallace's vote was first announced. When the Pattison vote was announced the convention-went crazy. Tbe first ballot as announced by Harrity as follows: Paulson..........................................., Wallace.......................................... Wright........................................... Henfiol.............................................. Blnck..........................................____ Not voting...................................... When the convention got tired shouting George McUowau, Philadelphia, moved to make the nomination unanimous. It was seconded by half a dozen men and went through like a breeze. FOR LIEU TAN ANT GOVERNOR. Then Chairman Harrity announced that tbe next thing in order was tbe nomination of a candidate for Lieutenant Governor. Instantly there were cries for "Black," "Black," from every part of the hall. John J. Maloney, Philadelphia, said there seemed to be a desire for the "old ticket' of 1S82, and he nominated Chauncey F. Black. There were several seconds and then Delegate Steel, of Lo high, placed the name of Robert E. Wright before tbe convention. W. F. Collins placed the name of Hannibal K- Sloan, of iudiana, m nomination and then tbe nom-nations closed. Tbe roll was immediately ordered and as it progressed Wright and Black were frequently applauded. The ballot resulted as follows: ...auo ....xivz .... 12 .. VI .. 10 Klrat. That ballot reform is necessary and to this end we recommend the adoption-of such a system as the Australian ballot law. Second. Thut ttiriir rrfurm Is necessary In order that both producers and consumers may lie relieved from !he burden of ituneces�nry taxation. Third. That State and local reform Ift necessary in order that the taxation for county, municipal and township purpose**, niay be equitably adjusted and tho unjust discrimination against the land remedy. Fourth. Tbat the law requiring that the surplus in the State Treasury shall be Invested tn State or United States bonds muht be observed and executed Fifth. We Invite comparison of the courage, fidelity and Integrity of the administration of Grover Cleveland with the duplicity, vacillation and corrupt snrroundinKS or the present federal administration. Sixth. The silence of M,S. Quay under tho charges whicn have been made against him through the public proBs can only be Interpreted as a confession of his guilt, and his retention of a seat in the United States Senate, while refusing to demand alegal investigation of these charges, is a national scandal. We accept the issue of Q,aaylam as now tendered by the Republican Slate Committee and Convention. Seventh. We arraign tho Republican party for its usurpation of power in the administration of the federal government for placing in the House a speaker who has been enabled by j them to become a dictator and to usurp the ! power of legislating for the representatives of the whole people, for Its open disregard of the provision of the civil service law whloh the President or its choice was solemnly pledged to support; for Its ceaseless eftorts to promote sectional strife and disturb the business Iran lulitty of the country; for Its lavish and reefc-less expenditures of the public rdionoy; for its passage through the House of Representatives of a tarlffbill which increases the taxes on necessaries, reduces only tboso laid upon luxuries, and is calculated to promote and foster trusts; for its failure to enforce tho laws against the Importation of contract and, pauper laborers; for Its attempts to pass a Federal election law designed to excite a race war; for Its discrimination and legislation against the agricultural Interests which has greatly reduced tbe value of farm land; fur its indiiierenco to the rights of labor, its defeat of the labor bills In tho last Legislature, and its failure lo enforce articles it; and 17 of the constitution by proper legislation. Eighth. We sympathize with the relatives and friends of the victims of the appalling disaster at the Hill Farm mine, and demand of the legislature tue prompt enactment of additional measures for the moat efficient protection of the "Jives of the miners. Ninth. We commend favorably to the consideration of ourSenatorsand Representatives In Congress the claims of tbe citizens of oar-border counties for leases sustained during the rebellion. Recalling with pride the g'nrles of our parly past, rejoicing lu the mr.Jesty of its present strength and looking forward to lis steady triumph throughout the country, wo confidently appeal to the Intelligence or the people of Pennsylvania for tbeir active and ouluusia-tic support of tbe poIIUcal reforms this day Inscribed upon the standard or a limited, progressive and aggressive democracy. w. r.

Scuanton, July 2.-The State Committee at a mooting this evening accepted the resignation of Chairman Kisner and elected William F. narrity, of Philadelphia, his successor. Mr. Harrity had no opposition. Ho was loathe to take the place and said he might resign within two weeks. uinck......._.............,..................................I9i WrlKlil.........................................................157 Sloan...........................................................   .J The nomination was made unanimous. William II. Barclay, of Pittsburg, was theu nominated by acclamation for Secretary oT Internal Affairs. A committee was appointed to notify the candidates of their nomination, and to -wait upon tbe defeated candidates and ask them to appear before the convention. Governor Pattison soon arrived and was given an ovation. Upon tbe conclusion of his speech Eckley B. Coxa made a few remarks, iu which be declared that any Democrat who sulked at this timo was not worthy tho name of Democrat and ought to be read out of the party. He expressed bis confidence iu the ability of Pattison to win tbe coining contest for Governor. After waiting about fifteen minutes Chairman Sbimmelflg, of tho Committee to wait on the defeated candidates, returned and said the committee had seen Senator Wallace, Wright and Ileusel, aud they expressed their regrets tbat tbey could not, appear.__ I TtiK   PLATFORM IN r(iix.

Councilman Haberstroh this morning gave an order to one of tho grocorymen of this city for a supply of good things which will be served to inmates of tho city poor bouse at their dinner to-morrow. Thi articles ordered were such as are not on the regular bill of fare at tbat institution, and the lux uric-s which tbe unfortunate inmates of tbe poor bouse will eat to-morrow will cot cost the taxpayers anything, as the kind-hearted Councilman paid the bill out of his own private pocket book. YfcSTERI>AY AT THE NORMAL. Forty-Four Juniors Admit ted to the Senior Cbt��-Tho Alumni KxerclMS. Vnsterday was a busy day at tbe Nor-mal. At nine o'clock occurred the Junior Class day exercises which consisted of the usual numbers. Mr. H. E. Longenecker is president of the Junior Class and JVIlss Houghton, Secretary. Forty-four received certificates from tbe Principal, thereby admitting them to the Senior Class. The address of tbe President was good as also were the oration, recitation and prophecy, especially. The address of Mr. Hess, President of the Senior Class, on receiving the picture of the class ef 1800, from tbe Junior Class was especially approriateand well delivered. We congratulate the Juniors on their promotion and hope they will all come baok and put in a whole year of solid, sober, faithful work.   This is wbat counts. Yesterday the beautiful electrolier for bo centre of tbe chapel arrived and electrician Kelly assisted by half & dozen others put it together and suspended it from the ceiling.

Last night the Alumni exerciBes were held iu the chapel in the presence of a good sized and appreciative audience. The exercises were excellent throughout, indeed, we do not know when we ever listened to bolter. Tbe audience encored almost every number. Prof. Reimer played with tine feeling and artistic skill "Robert Le Diablo," upon tbe elegant Hallet & Davis piano. In response to an encore he played a piano solo for tbe left hand alone aud tbe audience would gladly bave beard another solo from sucb a skillful pianist. Tbe singing of Messrs. Spangler and Chambers aud 3Iisses Dillon & Alia bach afforded great pleasure to all. They were called back after every performance. The audience insisted tbat tbe ''Professor at Home1' be repeated from the beginning.

Central This Mornlnr Attract a Large Audience at the Chapel- A Fnll Report or the Eroceedlncs, Which Were or a Very Interesting: Character- Encouraging Success. In spite of the inclemenoy of tbe weather a large and intelligent audience assembled in tbe Normal ohapel thiB morning to witness the graduating exercises of the clasB of '90. Tbe programme was openod .witb. a selection by the Axe Makers' band of Hill Hall, followed by prayer by the Rev. Dr. Nesbitt. Tbe band then rendered another piece, entitled, "Pleasant Dreams." Whilo this selection was being played a part of the graduating class left their plnoes in the audience and took Boats upon the stage. An oration by Myers Worman. Horner,' entitled, "An Idea," was then announced. The gentleman's handling of lis subject was excellent. He spoke of the power of an idea in civilizing men, in promoting education, and furthering inventions. He compared the development of an- idea into a reality, to the growth of an adorn. Into an oak. His thongbts were deep and well stated,and bis delivery Huent and pleasing: Miss Sarah F. McDonnell followed him la a recitation, entitled, "The Midnight Mass." Tbe selection- was of an unusual kind, which made it all Uie more interests ing. The rendering of it was easy and showed no embarrassment upon the'p^rt of the spoaker. ' * ! Miss Mary E. MoUormick then favered tbe audienee with a very beautiful piano solo, entitled, "Hondo (Japiioiosco.'' Her playing needs no comment, as ber. repul|a� tionasa pianist it well known in feed about Lock Haven. During tbe rendition of-this piece, the nrst seotion of tbe olass left the stage and tbe second section came on. | The next number was an oration by David EuimBtt Murray on the subject "Every Man is Great." His oration con taiued many excellent thoughts, and much good advice for young people. Uie' delivery was very good, , An essay, "The Empire of Fashion'' was next read by Miss Sarah Meria Ruddy. This was a composition of unusual merit, and the yoncg lady read it insuoh away as to be distinctly beard in all parti of tbe' room. Music, quartette, "Twilight Bolls" by Misses Allabaoh and Dillon and Messrs. Spangler and Chambers was well sung and loudly applauded. It was one of the sweetest things we have ever heard. The third section of the class having taken their places on the stage. Miss Laurel E. Dowes recited in a very oharm.-ing manner, "St. George and tlie' Dragoon." Tbe thrilling parts of the piece were brought out very vividly. Mies Downs is a recitatlonlst of high order. Mr. Harry Cheston Kepner'a handling of his subject, "Tbe New South," was very skillful. Mr. Kepner is one of the youngest members of the class, and certainly acquitted himself in a very creditable manner. Tbe duetto, "Only Thee," by Miss Dillon and Mr. Spangler was one of the finest features of the whole program. The music and words are beautiful, and Miss Dillon's clear soprano and Mr. Spangler'g Sue tenor did the piece full justice. - The first performance of tbe next section was an essay on "New Paths,''- by Miss Lizzie Georgine Taylor. She is a very pleasing composer, as well as a fluent reader. Her essay was highly appreciated. Miss Lnlu Allabaoh next sang a pretty, solo, entitled "Open Thy Lattice." Her voice is sweet aud clear and always com mands an interested, attention. "Our Opportunities" was the Bnbjeet of an oration delivered by Mr. Edward Weid-enhamer. In our mind thla was tltt oration of the day. It abounded in good thoughts and historic references, and was made doubly effectivo by tbe eloquence of the speaker. The applause which followed its delivery showed how well it was appreciated by the audience. His gestures were particularly appropriate. Miss EllaO. Smith's essay on "Slavery" was unulher flue produatiun. She began with a discusion of slavery in general from the earliest ages, then ended with a treatment of slavery in a figurative sense,-i-eferring in turn to the slave of fashion, slave of society, slave of avarice, slave of intemperance, &n. Her essay showed ruuoh deop thought. Duetto, "Happy Swallows," was sung in a very entertaining way by Misses Allabaoh and Dillon. Tbeir voices harmonize very nicely. Tho oratiou, "The Education of Wo men," by MIsb Charlotte Dillon was an" uuuaually interesting one. Miss Dillon seems to know what women need, and can express her thoughts on the subjeot. If she had her way woman would have a happy lot in life. We expect tp_6ear of Miss Dillon as a; second BjljrSj Lpiwood in the future! The last oration of, the day was that of Fred Ernest Spangler, who took as his topio "The Silent Orient." This oration was an excellent one and fully sustained the reputation that - Mr.- .Spangler has attained '' in this ;� it\if.' 'His delivery was' easy and imprestjye.'; "We have had the pleasure of listening to him before; but heveV in a 'Mtufr' prbduotion than this. .. ���>�< Music, "Meranga," by' the band' was well rendered.'
