PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINS^OK IIltOTFlKKS---rUBLISifK!!? CURRENT COMMENT. As ykau after year cornea ..long tbo rush uf our people for Europe seems to increase rather than ditntuinh. This is tbe timo of year lh �t a good deal of comfort could be found iu the possess ioo of a cool million. TnK official report of the Philadulpliiu's trial .ihowa that the new oruinor made nineteen and two-thirds knots an honr, two-thirds of a knot over the contract requirement. She is a lively ship, and will do honor to our navy. After all, none of out holidays are bo grandly welcome as Sunday. It matters not what men's theological views may be, they are unanimous iu the opiniou that the we rid muBt forever have the beauty and rest of one day in seven. Pittbbdro is beoowiug a literary as well as a smoky city. The receipts at her pofltoffue for the year ending Maroh 31st were bo much greater than the preceding years' that the postmaster's salary will be raised from $3,900 to $5,000 in conse-tinenoe. Some of Fattison's euthusiastic friends are already looking forward to his nomination for the Presidency. They have no doubt of his election aa Governor, which is to be culy a prelude to obtaining a Patti son delegation to the National convention from Pennsylvania, But what is to become o- the Cleveland movement in this interesting process of hatching Democratic chickens? LEGISLATION OF A WEEK. Our Government seems to be fairly committed to the policy of naval defense. As vessel after vessel glides off the stocks, the Secretary of the Navy issues the proposals for other8t and still more powerful ones His latest circular invites bids for a ship, which, with her armament, will cost fully $4,000,000. If we progress at this rate for the next ten years, we will have a navy not unworthy of our great country. The President again urged Congress in a message accompanying a letter from Secretary Blaine to aid the establishment of steamship lines with Central and South American porta by uniting with houthern countries by paying subsidies to such lines to the end that trade may be increased. It 1b hoped Congress will not be deaf to these appeals, nor violate the pledges made to the Pan-American Congress by continued inaction. The Committee of Investigation sent to Panama by the French Government to investigate the canal, has made a second, or supplemental, report which seems to put even a worse face on the matter than the first. Iu this report they Bay that under the present plans $347,400,000 will be required to finish the ditch, and that this cannot be done in less than twenty years. But as interest would have to be paid on the money while the canal was building, At least $600,000,000 would be required. The Committee thinks the canal can only be built by an international agreement and syndicate. Wtaat Is the Good ? Detroit X-*ree Press. The t-jy pistol has gone and the cigarette 1b going, but of what use is it to try and �are that class of sap heads who would be of no good if grown up?

THE SENATE HAVE PLENTY TO DO Senator FrjVn Shipping 1SI1U First ou tbo Calendar, and �xt Will Come the River nml Harbor 11111, Followed by that on the Tar]fl-Other Important Matters that are Awaiting Disposition. Washington, July 6.-Senator F rye's shipping bills, upon which a vote was not taken last Thursday because of tbe lack of a quorum, are unfinished business on Senate calendar for to-morrow, and he hopes to have them disposed of without further delay, lie will theu ask to have the*river and harbor bill taken up. This bill, with the amendments which the committee ou commerce has authorized Mr. Frye to offer, curries a total appropriation of about $23,000,000, and be says it is tbo best bill of the kind ever prepared. Two days, be thinks, will be sufficient for its consideration. Senator Mori ill, chairman of the Finance committee, will endeavor to have the Tar-i8 bill made the order of business after the shipping bills are out of the way. The indications, however, are that the River aud Harbor bill will be the first taken up. The Tariff bill, it is understood, will bo in charge of Senator Aldrich. If the River and Harbor bill gets the right of way it is more than probable that the TariQ debate will not be begun in earnest until uext week, as there are three appropriation bills to come before the Seuate this week, one of which, the Sundry Civil, is likely to precipitate a debate of some length. The report of the Conference Committee on the Silver bill, which is a privileged matter, is likely to be presented before the close of tbe week, and it will probably give rise to a debate of some length. The election bill will be received from the House probably to-morrow, and be referred to the Committee ou Privileges and Elections. A caucus of Republican Senators is expected some time this week, at which it will be decided whether or not to take up the bill at this session. The proceedings in the House this week promise to be comparatively unintorestiDg and quiet. VIVE OP THEM DEAD. Fatal Results of the Powder Expiation At Industry, P�. PiTTauuno, July G.-Five of the seven little victims of the powder explosion at Industry last night, have died. Their names are : August Smith, aged 14, his 13 mouths old sister, Mary, George aud Willie Kahler, aged respectively S and G, and John Brenuan, aged 10. Willie Hauler lived till this afternoon, suffering fear* fully until death relieved him. The other four died before midnight last night. Em ma Smith, aged 0, and Charlie Sbaw, aged 8, tbe other victims, will recover. The father of young Brenuan is crazed with grief, and last night tried to kill the owner of the buildtog where the powder was stored. This morning he wandered away from home and was found near Elizabeth, seven miles from Industry. A close watch is now being kept over him. The coroner's jury has condemned the practice of merchants keeping powder and other explosives where children have access to them. In this case the power was under the counter where a match was dropped into it. UOl'KLE ML'KDEK IN INDIANA. A Brute Stumps Ills Wife to Death and Kills an Offlcor. New Albany.

Tho Lock Haven Base Ball Club, which left this city last Weduesday morniug to spend the "glorious Fourth" in up-river towns, returned borne Saturday night, after a more successful trip than was expected. They played four games, wiuuing two aud losing the same number. First, ou Wednesday, they encountered tbe strong Reuovo team and were defeated 6 to 3 in one of the nicest games of ball ever played in Renovo. The Renovo people, one and all, joined in treating tho boys royally, aud right royally did they do it, as a club was never treated better in any place than wore the Look Haven club in this up-river city. Tbe next day the olub moved westward to Driftwood, not a very large place, but a town full of good people and base ball enthusiasm. Good and Friel formed tbe battery for Lock Haven whila Barnett and Roach acted in the same capacity for Driftwood, Our boys outplayed tho borne team at every point, batting harder, running bases bolder, and fielding sharper and better. Good pitched a game strongly in comparison with bis name, the up river boys being unable to guage his delivery to any extent, but tho feature of the game was Friol's throwing to b-ises and the base running and batting of Lock Haven. Score-Driftwood 7, Lock Haven 13. That evoning the two clubs boarded the train west, Driftwood for Ridgway, Lock Haven for Emporium. Ou tbe Fourth wo played and beat tbem the tirat time tbat club has been defeated at home for two seasons, and the people were naturally very dowuhearted as they lo3t considerable money ou the game and also had their record broken. Ou Saturday we played the same club at St. Mary's and wore defeated by the score of 10 to II, the umpiring of Mr. Fitzpatrick beiug of a very rank order as the number of hits and errors will vouch for. Look Haven makinc 17 hits and 6 errors, while Emporium bad C> bits and 5 errors. The game really belonged to Lock Haven, and all the people of St. Marys will vouch for it. Four car loads of people went from Emporium to St. Marys to pee their club play and upon their return that evening, wirh the score in their favor, they were met at the depot by almost all the people of the town with a band and Are work?. Tbe Lock Haven club played ball on this trip in a manner surprising to all; where thoy were heretofore weak they proved exceedingly strong, that is in batting and base running. In 4 games they had 54 base hits with a total of 68 bases and an aveiage of S stolen bases per game. To win half the games played away from home ia a record the boys need no! be ashamed of, and should give them liberal patronage at future games at home. The boys all proved themselves to be gentlemen and made many friends.

The new postal cards, whioh will Bhortly be printed, arc of two sizes-an idea of the Postmaster General's- the bigger one*, whioh have twice the area of the present postal cards, being intended for business communications that cannot very well be crowded, and for other purposes demanding space. Both cards have iu the right hand upper corner, instead of a representation of a stamp, a email portrait of General Grant. PlantIiir MU of course, myself-and would not run the risk of death. The sum was a fortune to me, especially as my father was, from lick . nesss, unable to work. Jumping oh the ear I called to be let down,and amid the onceta of the men I desoended. Each moment had death in it for me unless the fuse were longer than was thought. But I tried not , to think of it, and when I reached the bottom the ohild was playing at-themonaH of the shaft. I grabbed her, pnt her in the car and gave the signal to be hoisted op.' But the car did not move. I repeated the signal, but without avail. In agony of fear I jerked it again and the ear still re- -mained at the bottom. 1 bade the little girl stay wbere Bhe was and then I ran into the new drift where the explosion was to take place. A little spark revealed the whereabouts of the fuse. The fuse was still an inch long and I took hold of it and pulled it out. I tried to cheer, but had fainted instead. When I came to I was on top of the ground, taken there by; the men who, when in answer to my last1 signal- they bad not received the other two-had raised the'little girl and had then some down for me. . !:; "Well, tbe next day the father thanked me, but said nothing about the 11,000. The men advised ins to ask for It, "I refused. Then some of them asked1 for me and the owner told them that they were mistaken; he had offerek nothing. So mad were they that they threatened-' to throw him down tbe mine, but they desisted at my reqnest. A few weeks later I was discharged, probably because I was an eyesore to the owner. My father having in the meantime recovered, I went away and obtained work in New York and after awhile secured a fair position. One day abont 'fifteen years after this event a charming young ladyjdrove up in her carriage, and, coming in, oalled for me. She1 'did not at first give her name, but asked me if I-would do her a favor. Of course I satd yes. She then told me that it was she whom I had saved; that her father had died a short time before, and that in look- ' ing over bis papers she had found a letter from some of the men to him upbraiding him for not paying me the (1,000. This was the first she had heard of the obligation and she had immediately'set oat to find me. As she said this she banded me a cheok for $1,500, the extra tSOO being, she explained the interest. I was about to refuse to accept the cheok, bat she 're- ' minded me that I had promised to do her a favor and that I must keep my word. So I took it, with her card, and she left. What became of her? Well, six months later she became my wife." Watermelon aro coming in by the oar-load now, but as the consus has already been taken the doubling up of the population will do no good. Hand-ln-Hand at WlUlamtport, Tbe Williamsport QazelU and Bulletin of this morning says: "Hand-in-Hand Hose Company, No. 4, of Look Haven, and DeBanoe Hose Company, No. 1, of Pbil-ipsbnrg, wore not satisfied with what they Baw of onr city on tbe Fourth, and both companies remained in town until Saturday evoning before returning to their � homes. The oity firemen took onarge of them on Saturday and did all In their power to make thoir stay a pleasant one. In the afternoon tbe boys took a trip-toNew-berrj, where a pleasant hour was spent in visiting No. S of that place. Onr city firemen speak of tbe visitors with tbe highest praise for their obeerfnl-and gentlemanly deportmont while here, and hope to renew the friendship at no distant time in the future. They nil unite in saying tbat a more gentlemanly gathering of firemen than th-.it here oo Friday last would be hard to find on any like occasion."
