Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - August 13, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania ueitrst NINTH YEAR-NO. 140. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 13, 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KIN SLOE BROTHERS---PUBLISHERS CURRENT COMMENT. None of (.11 the older States has' done better in the m�tter ol increasing her population during the pi�t decade than Pennsylvania. Oor gain is rather more than 1,000,000, a gain of about 25 oent. per Lovers of canned Balm on should congratulate themselves. In spite of the old idea that two good seasons for salmon are never consecutive, the run in British Columbia this year is equal to that of last year, when it was the best ever known. There is a brand of Cuba cigars that come as high as 80 cents apiece by the wholesale, duty not paid. With duties paid and the profits expected on the article of this kind, they could not be sold for 82 straight, or about $2,000 a box. These cigars are bought by the royal families of Europe. There's not muoh ol a market in America for cigars costing $3 each. Ouu youngest Territory, Oklahoma, oomos to the front witb a dismal tale of want and threatened starvation. It is known the so ttlers mostly came from a distanoe, and few were persons of large means. The expenses of the trip and of properly bousing themselves exhausted their meagre supplies and now drought has come along to augment their woes. Their Governor says they must seoure outside relief or starve. Our Government has been unable to confirm the reports that have been sent from Europe concerning the expulsion of the Jews from Russia. That unusually harsh decrees have been issued has not been denied, but that there will be compulsory emigration on the part of these people in great numbers now seem unlikely. That many will leave because of the unjuBt laws promulgated, there seems to be no room to doubt. If Senator Delamater iB tbe perjurer, briber and misaellaneus rogue, whioh Mr. Emory says he is and Messrs. Barker and Blankenburg hint they believe, why do not these VBry excellent people go to work and prove him so? If they can do that his chanoes (or the Governorship will vanish into tbin air. That is what they want.' Why, instead of pursuing thiB straightforward course, do they call frantically upon Senator Delamater to begin suits against his detainers instead? Nothing that Mr. Delamater ever did can be so fraudulent and despicable as this very conduct of his assailants. As address issued by the anti-Lottery League of Louisiana throws a good deal of light on the methods of the lottery company which so long controlled and de-bauohed that Commonwealth. It lays bare the thieving ways in whioh the pub-lio is swindled through this concern. It is said its drawings "are so arranged that the managers oan sell 75 per cent of their tickets, pay 10 per cent, for selling them, lose all the prizes provided for in its schemes, pay $1,000,000 for expenses, and still mako an annual profit of $3,000,000." Tho chances of the man for getting back the one dollar he invests In the tiokets are 1 to 33. This arraignment should open the eyes of the entire country to the evils of this gigantic swindle.

Boston, Aug. 12-Had the weather been made to order for tbe veterans the conditions could hardly have been more favorable for the big G. A.
