   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - August 9, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                4 victim NINTH YEAK-NO-137. LOCK HAVEN. PA.. SATURDAY. AUGUST 9,1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS fcUNSLttSS UUOTHKK8---P1IBUSHEKS CURRENT COMMENT. The Attoruuy.Genoral decides that General Badeau is not entitled to a place on tho retired list of the army, and that ex tinguishod celebrity will now be more retired than ever.__ Qes. Di:ti.kk, with others, owns 83,000 acres or land in Pueblo county, Colorado, which is entirely under fence and is now rented out to many different eattle and horse ownerB for grazing purposes. American olaimarjjs to foreign millions are legion, but the dividends they aro able to show are very few. Possibly they might succeed bettor if they took ad van tago of tho prevailing oraze for selling out to EngliBh syndioates._ Gold is at a premium of 209 at Buenos Ayres,snd now the Government proposes to relieve the situation by issuing $50,000,000 more of paper money. They evidently have a good deal to learn down thero about an irresponsible paper currency. Senator Carlisle has agreed to oome up into Pennsylvania and make some free trade speeches in the interest of Mr. Patti-Bon. Ig is to be hoped he will not rooon-sider hiB determination, as it is desirable to make the Republican majority as largo as possible-___ Jai-ax has held its first election under its new constitution, and it passed off not unlike similar elections in this country, Four parties had their candidates for whom the supporters rallied a full force, tho result being that the "liberals" or "progressives" obtained the advantage. Adtices from North Dakota Indicate that the Lottery Company has not abandoned its efforts to prooure a charter In that State. It is Baid tho Company has active agents fti all parts of the State, amply provided with funds, to work tho primaries in the interest of the charter, and so far the agents are doing very well indbed. The Nov? York papers insist that it is the wish of the mombersof Genera] Grant's family that his body shall remain iu the tomb at Riverside. Whether this Is true or not oannot now be determined, but it iB hardly credible that they wish to have his ashes kept forever in the wretched receptacle with which New York now dishonors them in violation of her pledges. Last year Kansas produced the enormous amount of �40,000,000 bushels of corn. This year it is feared she will grow only one-fifth that amount. An equal shortago is predicted in the adjoining States of Missouri and Nebraska, which would reduce tho coming crap some 400,-000,000 bushels. That tho crop as a whole will be much smaller than last year is conceded. The Farmers' Allianoe iu Pennsylvania is not making many converts and iB not likely to play an important part in the ponding campaign, as the same order will in the South and West. The Pennsylvania farmers have always been conservative whenever aranks and demagog nes have tried to fool tbem, and there are no Bigns that they have loBt any of t.beir old-fashioned wisdom.

By a rreconcerted Arrangement the Men Step Work About Seven O'clock Last Evening. Resullinc Iu a Total Suspension of Trattlc Between New York anil ituir.io. New yoiiK, Aug. 8.-The Btrike of em ployes on the New York Central and Hod-son River railroad was begun at 7:30 p. m. Not a train has left the depot at Forty-second street since that hour. Tho Grand Union hotel is crowded with people who expected to leave the city, and had engaged passage for various points. At half past eight a gentleman reached the hotel and announced that the engineers and men employed in running an incoming train had deserted their posts in the tunnel at Eighty-Siit street, and left the train standing there. He, as well as the other passengers, had to get out and make their way to Forty second street on foot or by horse oar. OTHER hpap5 TIED it. The latest report is that whe West Shore road is tied up throughont its length, as well as the New York and New Haven road. Great throngs of people are crowded into tho Grand Central depot, and trying to have tiekets changed and asking all manner of questions. Vice President Webb was interviewed on the situation. He said that tbe strike extended only to West Albany. All men who went from the employ of the road this evening Webb said, would be promptly discharged in the morning. Those men who remained trae to the company would be well taken care of and amply protected, as well SB all men who came to work for the road. The roads wonld take on all good men who applied for work in the morning, as far aa they were nocded to fill tho places of thn deserters, and they would be guaranteed from all barm as well. With great emphasis the vice-president announced that he would fight the strikers to tbo bitter end. TV HAT THE JIEX DEMAND. The new domands are: For a minimum day's wages $1.50, station ngentB to receive an increase of 35 a month. The men in tho yards at Troy and Green 1st land shall recoivo Ibo same compensation as at Schneotady and East Albany. All firemen on six wheel oonuected engines shall raceive two and one-fourth cents per mile; all engineers of the same four cents; four wheel engineers, three and one-half cents per mile; firemen two cents per mile; for all over time double pay. Mr. Webb announced that a fast mail had pulled out of tho depot at 'J p. m. with four maircars, but no passenger cars were attached. The Vice President further announced that no attempt wonld be made to rnn any trains to-night, everything would be left at a standstill just whero'the men left off. A COMPLETE TIE Ul\ ALUASiT, Aug. 8.-The Central Hudson road is tied up from Buffalo to New York. All the Bw'itchmcn have deserted their posts. Trains are allowed to proceed to the terminus of tho divisions and then switch service is refused. Tho strike began at 7 p. m, STUlKEllS STOI' A THAIS. 1 The strike in this section extends to the Bwitohmon, yardmen, and in some instances to brakemcn. No through trains have moved more than a mile out of Albany since 7 o'olock. The North Shore Express, carrying ' the United States mail, wbgch left New York at 4:50 p. m. arrived here at 8 o'olock. An attempt was made to run it out of here at 10 o'clock, but before it had gone half a dozen blocks it was stalled by tho strikers who put on the air brakes and crowded tbe platforms of tbe cars, preventing tbe one brakeman who was on tho train from touching ft brake. OTHER TRAINS SUSPENDED. Of the Troy locals only one has run since 7 o'clock. The 0 o'clock train out of New-York arrived here on time, but now lies in the yard here. People in a hurry to go Sonth and West go via tho Delaware and Hudson road to Binghamtou, connecting there with the Erie Road.

Washington, Aug. 8.-The Harrison Blaine conference at Cape Hay and the protracted consultation at the White House on Wednesday afternoon and night, in which tbo President, Senator Aldrieb, Major McKinley and, later, Speaker Reed, Assistant Postmaster General Clarksou and Uhairman Beldon, of the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee, participated, have been the talk of Washing, ton. The tariff and reciprocity alike have grown much brighter since these meet ings, and the chances of enacting the Federal Elections bill into a law greatly increased. The President yesterday received visits from Senators Pierce, Hale and other lie publican leaders, and though it hgB not yet been positively decided that it will be necessary for him to hand a special message to Congress concerning the important pieoes of legislation whioh overshadow all others, still a mutnsl understanding has been reached, which, it is believed, will insure the Bpeedy passage of tbe bills named, and an adjournment in time to permit Republican Congressmen to go home and help swell their majorities in tbe next Houbo. Republican leaders are laughing over the collapse of the little Democratic plot to provoke a breach upon the reciprocity question between tbe President and hiB Secretary of State. Said one of thB closest friends of the President and a participant in the conference : "It has been practically agreed that if the length of the session permits a reciprocity amendment containing the best features of those presented by Senators Aldrioh and' Pierce will be submitted The President haB all along favored reciprocity, but he has thought that the plan proposed by Secretary Blaine would jeopardize the wool and sugar schedules of tbe Tariff bill. Mr. Blaine himself seems also to have reached thia oonolu-sion. Therefore he has agreed to support a compromise whioh will insure the passage of the Tariff bill as it now stands, or probably with an amendment providing tbat in case countries sonth of us whose sugar, bideB, etc., are admitted free to tbo United States do not reciprocate within two years by taking onr breadstuff's and agricultural products and maohinery without duty, etc., the duties npon the former imports shall be reimposedst Thia would leave tho wool sohedule and free Bugar olauBB in the tariff bill intaot for the next twenty-four montbs Indicated at least. The President and Mr. Blaine have at no time differed on tbe reciprocity, except as to details. When the sugar schedule is reached, as it probably will be next week, the Republican Senators will have agreed, I think, upon the compromise amendment, which will settle the controversy onca and for all. I understand that Speaker Reed and Major McKinley have offered no objections to tbe proposed amendment, and that it will be framed in such a way that in no respect will it antagonise tho Tariff bill." -- � *---        v Speaker Beed's Reply. Speaker Reed in tbe North American Jlecicw for August, roplies with his aoeus-tomod vigor to the critiaisms of his course iu counting members not voting In making up a quorum. Among other things ho says: "The presence 01 a majority of the legislative body constitutes a quorum to do business. The essenoe of all business on tbe part of the legislative body is the consent of a quorum of that body, either expressed or implied. It may be as thoroughly expressed by silence as by sound. In tbe parliamentary sense, presence always implies full sight and hearing of all that takes placo. If a member, then, is present in full sight and sound of all occurrences, and if all action is loudly proclaimed by clerk or Speaker, he is as much a party consenting to all that occurs as If he vociferated in his loudest toues. This all admit. Even the writer of the anonymous articlo admits this in all oasos except that of a yea-and-nay vote. Hence, oven with him, we have only to deal with that method of determining tbo result." The brainy speaker baa had the better of tho argument from tbo first, and above all tbe result of his ruling has been so satisfactory, in that it has compelled the House to transact its business expeditiously, that he has received the encouragement of popular applause. Speaker Reed is J too great to ho conquered by filibustering tactics. TERSELY TOLD HAPPENINGS. All jho Late 5ew3 and Views of the Oity Up to 3:00 P.
