Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - July 17, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania ninth yeab-no-117. jlock haven. pa.. thursday. july 17. 1890. price-two cents evening express;a sensation at camden. KINSZOK BKOTHKKS---fPBIJSHKKS CURRENT COMMENT. The potato bug has not made much of an impression this season and tbe crop of tho great tuber proroteefi to be great. It ip now reported that tbe census or New York city haa not been taken accurately, and tbat tbe exact figures will not exceed 1,550,000. In New York tbe courts are to be asked to decide whether the act requiring weekly payment of wages ie constitutional or otherwise. Pennsylvania baa a law pro viding for semi-weekly payments in some trades, and it seems to work well. The censusiestimate of 850,000 population in the new State of Washington indioates a wonderful growth. The tide of settlers, capitalists and wide awake young men on the lookout for opportunities which is flowing into this far-off corner of tbe Union is one of tbe most remarkable features of the development of the Northwest. Mn- Blaine wants to use our proposed tariff legislation as a means of increasing our trade with some of our neighbors, a state of affairs which be does not think tbe McKinley bill will bring about. Free sugar, in bis opinion, ft, all right, provided the countries which sell as that Article will abandon their discriminations against tbe products of tbe United States. Thk twelve thousand Sheffielders over whom tho Mayor of tbat town presided the other evening in order to give dignity to their protest against tbe McKinley Tariff bill, might be more profitably employed than in holding such worse than idle meetings-worse than idle because their only probable result must be to excite resistance to such impertinent outside interference. Wbex wholesale desertions occur on a United States warship, there must be speoial reasons [or it. This is tbe condition of things on board the Charleston. The men say tbey were not permitted to use the library pat on board for their benefit, were kept below tbe entire time when not needed on deck, and were compelled to encounter other hardships and indignities. Such a case demands investigation. The K eights of Labor at Beading have begun a campaign in behalf of free textbooks in the public sohools. The Lancaster Examiner in commenting on tbe above fact Bays: Bow easily good people are deceived by terms! "Free" has such a captivating sound*,' but ie there aaob a tbiog as ftee books, free schools or free churches? Certainly not. In this world you cannot get something for nothing. The trouble is we are trying to bide paying under tbe guise of taxation and tbe public treasury, and then are not half so careful as we would be did w*> pay as Individuals or become more directly interested in the distribution 6T funds. Every citizen should remember that tbe term "free" is a misnomer, as it leads the majority to think its definition is without cost. "Free" is the cost of taxation, �nd this being generally unequal fulls hardest on the workingman and tho owner of bniall property. Relatively tho poor man of Lancaster, with or without bis Utile home,pays more taxes than bis rich brother and tbe burden is none the easier because he gets a few things be c&Ub wrongly, "free." Eld pays well for them and should know it before making increased calls upon tbe public treasury. The extravagant appropriations going on at Washington now is because a careless people have an Idea *hat tbe treasury grows out of nothing and is created or given us to build up eo-called "free" tbfngs. Every dnllar in the public treasury is so much taken from common labor, and returning it in the shape of jobB docs not make the payment "free." All of which, if fully ap-preciited, would make congressmen more economical. Why PuTbey Nuke n Fun*. t-'rtim tb-j Chicago Inter-Ocean. According to tbe tenor of a London special to an American Free Trade paper the Biitish manufacturers are highly wrought "p in feeling on account of the McKiuloy bill, and it is said there are dire threats uttered of retaliatory legislation against American products. But if the tariff is a (ax, levied wholly upon the American consumers of foreign goods, as they have beoo telliDg us, why need the gentlemen on the other side make a fuss flbent ii? Haven't tbe people of this count,** a right to tax themselves all they IjImrbV? Heally it begins to look bb if our friends across tho briu>, who are laboring 60 zealously to reform the American Tariff, are not wholly disinterested in the matter. Tbey act and ta'k j�st now a* if the Tariff is a tax upon the Bri Ushers who are cUmoriog for free entrance into the best market in tbe world. A Belief That Annie Leconoy's Slayer Has Been Found in That City. SUSPICION POINTS TO JOE DUNN, Who U Under Arrest for AbuftlnR Hil Wife -His Mother-ln-I*w Mike. Some Startling Statements In Regard to the Leconey Harder - I>an& Described as a Thief and a Urate. Philadelphia, July 16.-Camden, N. J., haa another sensation, in which the ghost of poor Annie Leconey 1b resurrected, and if tbe sensation pans out with any amount of success the residents of Camden city and county will be satisfied. At 9:30 last night Rebecca Dane, residing at Tioga and Vanhook streets, in tbe Eighth Ward, appeared before Justice Chester, and complained tbat her husband Joseph had "badly done her up." Mrs. Dunn's left eye was closed, her nose was broken, and she was otherwise badly beaten, while her clothing waB badly saturated with blood. She said Joe wanted money to buy rum, and she. refused to give it to him, whereupon he committed tbe dastardly assault on her, which led to his commitment in tbe county jail. This row between Dunn and his wife ie now liable to end disastrously, or at least annoyingly for Joseph, who is said to be a very bad man, and is alleged to have been concerned in several scrapes. Mrs, Anna Durham, mother of Mrs. Dunn, has made a sworn statement before Justice Chester which is likely to implicate Joseph in the murder of Annie Leooney. In her sworn statement Mrs. Durham says that Joseph told her that two years ago he enticed a young colored man from Swedesboro to Philadelphia. At that time Dunn said be was connected with a gang known as the "Killers." The Swedesboro man incurred the ill feeling of Dunn and the other members of the gang. Dunn, she says, told her that he ant tbe young man's throat and dragged him into a water-closet down town and set him up on a seat, in which position be was i afterwtrd found. Mrs. Durham says she notified the authorities of this statement, but no action was taken. In the same! affidavit Mrs. Durham says tbat her son-in-law was formerly employed by Chalk-ley Leooney, by whom he was afterwards discharged. When Dunn came home be growled about the money he had received, and declared there was plenty of money at Le-coney's and he was going to get some of it. All he asked was to get some one who would assist him get a certain obstruction out of the way. He declared he now saw a chance to get money. This was a week or so after the murder of -Annie Lecooey. Mrs. Durham says she did not see Dunn again until the Sunday night before the murder, when Dunn was at home for a short time and again disappeared. Two weeks after the murder Mrs. Durham saw Joe on tbe opposite side of the street. lie had returned from some place unknown, and was dressed differently from what she had ever seen him dress, and he was accompanied by two other oolored men. He told Mrs. Durham he had tbe money, "all but what has been paid to them what's got to hold their tongue," Mrs. Duiham says Joe told her if he ever committed murder he would never wear the bloody clothes any, but would leave them in such a manner as would throw suspicion on Chalkley Le coney, for whom be teemed to hold an intense hatred. Mrs. Durham describes her son-in-law as an inveterate tbief. She says be is a brute who has repeatedly threatened to out his wife's throat, and boasted tbat murder had no terrors for bim. Dunn has served several years in tbe penitentiary, and is a bad character. Friends of Chalklej Le-coney believe be is Annie's murderer. lecoset does not know ni it. Chalkley Leooney was seen at bis farm I�*t eveniug, and asked about Dunu. "I don't remember," said he, "ever having a man by the name of Duuu work for me. It is quite possible, however, that this man may have worked for me under an assumed name. I hive had dozens of farm bauds who have giyou names other than their right ones. They do this to hide a previous bad rooord, I suppose." Leooney stated that he would see Dunn t'i-day and ascertain whether he had ever bt:en in his employ. He seemed completely unnerved by the charge against Duuu of having inuidcred his niece. lie said that he was anxious to tind the slayer of bis niece, and pioposed lo sift this Dunn report to the bottom.

We were sitting on the verauda of a ho tel, Niagara Falls, wben I noticed the man on my right looking Bbarply at tbe man on my left, and presently he got up in an excited way and walked about. After a bit be baited before tbe other man and asked: "Isn't your name Graham ?" "Yes, air," was the prompt reply. "Dinn't you use to teach BOhool at �1-mira ?" "Yes, sir." "Do you remember a boy named God-kin?" "Very distinctly, sir." "Do you remember that he put a package of Ore oraokers under bis desk and toaohed them off?" "As if it happened onlyyeBterday." "And yon basted bim for it?" "I did. I licked him until be could hardly stand, and I've always been glad of it?" "Too have, eh?" said theotber, breathing fast and hard. "Do you know tbat that boy swore a terrible oath ?" I preBume be did, as be was a tborough young villain." He swore an oath that he would grow up and hunt for yon and pound yon within an inoh of your life." "But I bavn't heard from bim yet." "Vou bear from bim now ! He stands before you! I am tbat boy!" "Well ?" "Prepare to be licked! My time has oome at last!"

The old devil is all of 70 now, but be licked me right off tbe reel, and I'll never have the sand to stand up to him again. Here's thirty years of waiting for vengeance knnoked into a cooked hat in three minutes." the surplus all right. fEKSONAL CEHUILIXOS. Tbe Chairman of the Appropriation Committee in the House Says So. THE TREASURY IS NOT BANKRUPT. The New States and Next Electoral College. New York Correspondence Pbil'a Ledger. Politicians of. both parties are figuring upon the ohanges in the politioal situation caused by the admission of Idaho and Wyoming into the sisterhood of States. At the next ^Presidential election six new States will be represented in the Electoral College, causing a total vote of 10. Tbe situation figured out here to be like this: At tbe last election the Electoral vote was 401, of whioh 233 were east for Harrison and 168 for Cleveland. Tbe sure Republican vote, was 182, and Harrison carried the two doubtful States of New York and Indiana with a combined vote of 51. At tbe next election it iB safe to say that five of tbe six new States will be Republican, and one, Montana, may be classed as doubtful. Tbe "sure Repub lioan vote" will thus be increased to But the total Electoral vote will probably be 420, making 211 neoessary to a choioe, so that the Republicans will be 13 short of victory. If tbey oan oarry Indiana they will have four majority in the* Electoral College. Giving the Demo orats all tbe States they carried in 1888 and New York and Montana, tbey will still lack four votes of victory. The con elusion is plain, therefore, that New York and Indiana will be pivotal States in 1892, as they were in 1883, with this differenoe, however, that tbe Republicans must oarry one or tho other in order to win, while the Democrats roust carry both. The Repub licanB have thus been greatly strengthened, not only in tbe Sonate, but in Electoral Co'iege by the admission of the now States. Democrats, here, however, are confident of not only beinR able to carry New York, but alBO Indiana, and are by no means willing to admit tbat several of the old and new States clataed as surely Republican are not withiu the possibilities of Democratic oontrol. Picnic yesterday. A party ol pleasure seekers boarded tbe steamer "Louie," Capt. Christie in command, yesterday morning bound for Sugar Hun. In due time the grove was reaohed and all were ready for the day's enjoyment. It is not neoessary to recount how each one found pleasure, but we are sure tho day was pleasantly spent. Tho return trip was delightful, made especially so by the courtesy of Captain Christie, who brought the party home via Queen's Run. H. u. Nu Couit To-Morrow. There will be no session of adjourned court to-morrow, an order of tbe court having been mcde yesterday to that effect. Tbe date of the next adjourned oourt will be made known in due time.
