While he | was Governor an act passed the Legislature empowering citlos, boroughs and townB to provide for the support of disabled firemen. When this humane act reached him he not only vetoed it but he did it with a contemptuous sneer that it was "a new style of pension bill," as if a pension bill for those who risk life and limb in the unselfish and laudable effort to save tbe property and lifo of their fellows was 'a disgraceful thing to give or receive. As an exchange well says "there is no olass of oitizens more deserving of reward than tho protectors of our homes and firesides and he who refuses aid to the burned, blackened and bruised fireman Is surely made of the kind of clay too cold to be classed as the friend of the masses or as one having sympathy for the cares and burdenB of his fellow men in any degree whatever."

At any event when the train reached Broadway viaduct tho Tink-ertons on top of the freight cars carrying Winchester rifles began a reokless fusi-lade on tbe crowds standing in that vicinity.

As it Is he fears there will be further trouble.

(mressional forecast. genntor Quay's Amended Resolution Will be Introduced To-day. Washington, Aug. IT.-The program of busiaoss for tbe rest of the session will be determined in open senate this week, if the present understanding is carried out. Quay, according to notice given Saturday, will introduce his amended resolution to-morrow, which under the ruleB it is expected will go over until Tuoaday for action. It will not be referred to tba Committoe on Rales, but will be disposed of in the Senate. This course Is desired by its author, and when it is called up a motion will be mado, probably by Hoar or Spooner, to includo the federal election bill in the list of bills that shall bo considered after tbe tariff bill is disposed of. This is expected to preoipi-tato a debate of somo length, and considerable bitterness between the wings of tbe Republican majority. Quay and Aldricb, who is acting with him, believe the resolution will pass by a good majority, with no amendment. When that matter is settled, tho tariff bill will be taken up and pressed to a vote as rapidly as possible. The Urgency Deficiency bill reported last week will be disposed of if possible at one sitting. The bills to aid iu Agricultural Colleges and the compound lard and meat inspeetion bills may also be called. When these measures are disposed of It is possible that tbe Labor Committee may have a day il the Elections Committee do not insist on pressing the pending contested election oases.

A Beautiful Souvenir-�. M. C. A. Note�- A gnildni Death-Drill To-Night-1 campetl on the lelaml - Encouraging Letter. - Board of Trado - other Late Local News. The Look Haven Cl�y Works Company, organized in this oity a little more than two years ago, has demonstrated that there are superior facilities here (or the manufacturing of sewer pipe, and the resources developed by the company has turned into wealth, an otherwise worthless section of the city. Forty acres of swamp land which was almost valueless before the company obtained possession of it, has been drained and robbed of Its power of prodaoipg malarial atmosphere, while the rich deposits of clay underlaying the snrfaoe is being turned into ft marketable commodity, the manufacture of which gives employment to a large namber of hands and bids fair to enrich the men whose push and energy have not only promoted their own prosperity but aUo that of tbe city. The Lock Haven Clay Works Company was organized in 1888, with a capital of �22,500. Slnoe that time the company has been reorganized and Incorporated with a capital of 1135,000. The membors of the firm are L. M. Patterson, John Sherriok, Boyd C. Packer and Charles M. O'Connor. The offioers are L. M. Patterson, President; C. M. O'Connor, Secretary and Troasurer; John Sherriok, L. SI. Patterson and Boyd C. Packer, Directors. The location of the plant is in the southern part of the city and is a splendid one! for manufacturing purposes. The main building is 250 feet long by 80 feet wide with a wing G4x30 feet. The buildings | are three stories high and are constructed especially to afford the greatest oonven-ionces for oarryicg on tbe work of manufacturing sewer pipe. The clay beds owucd by tho oomrjany aro a part of tho land on which tbe plant Is established and comprises an area of over forty acres. The clay posesses obemical properties not found in any other clay in the country. The beds have a depth of over seventeen feet and tbe supply is apparently Inexhaastable. The clay is dug, and turned into tbe grinding pans just as it oomes from tbe pits. In twenty inmates from the time it leaves the pit it is resting in the drying room, as nnburned sower pipe, ready to be placed in the kiln and burned. The process of manufacturing requires heavy machinery and a battery of four boilers of 300 horse power furnishes steam which drives the 100 horse engine steam presses and other maohiues. All sizes of vetrified sewer pipe and fittings are made from two inchCB in diameter up to thirty inches, the latter being the largest size manufactured in tbe world and is only made by two other manufactories in tho United States. The stoam press for making the thirty inch pipe is an immense maohino, the iron frame of which weighs 3,000 pounds. A pressuro of 125 pounds to the square inch is required, and yet the maohine works smoothly and silently as an slectrio clock, obeying to a nicety the operator when either of the half dozen levers are touohod by his skillful hand. There are thirteen kilns In which tbe pipe is burned and the works have a oapaoity for an average output of soven oar loads of sewer pipe dally. It is perhaps not generally known by the readers of tho Express that this Is the largest establishment in the Unitsd States in whioh sewer pipe alone is roanufac-turered. Sixty-flvo hands And oonstant omploy-mentjat tbe works. Tho men at present aro working until 9 o'clock every night and will continue to do so until the material for filling orders on hand Is turned out, which will require three months timo. The sewer pipe works In this oity are, with tho exoeptlon of one establishment in New Jersey, the nearest to the Atlantic sea board, all others being further west. This alono gives the Lock Haven Clay Company a ready market in all the Eastern States for the product of their works. The facilities for shipment are first class, as the works are near tho B. E. V. railroad. Thoro aro thirteen large kilns, each 30 feat iu diameter, in which the pipe is burned and vitrified. Aftor being removed from tbo kilns the pipe is conveyed on small oars over railroadB which branch out through all partB of tho grounds adjoining the works, to tbe piling ground where thousands of pioccs of pipe of all sizea, ami linings of all ahapas, are imiliod up and kopt iu stook. Tbo work of loading the pipe into oars for shipment is facilitated by the faot that tho railways throughout the yards have a descent towards tho main tracks of the B. E. Valley Ilailroad. Eleotrio light will shortly bo used to illnm-iuato tbo works at night, as a private plant is soon to be put in and operated by the company. The foreman of this extensive establishment is John Donnelly, oue of tho oldost sower pipo makers in the United States. Mr Donnelly bas had experience in tho making of sewer pipe in both Scotland and England and understands every branoh of the business thoroughly. Tbe office of tbe company is near tbe works, and is pleasantly and conveniently arranged. Tbe bookkeeper, Mr. B.W. Frederioks.ooonpies one of the comfortable rooms while Mr. Luther M, Patterson, President of tbe company, has his private office in another room. Mr. Patterson gives bis whole time and attention to the management of the works, and there is not the slightest detail of the whole that esoapes bis watchful eye. It is largely owing to his untiring energy and individual efforts that the company has succeeded as they have in becomiug tbe largest sewer pipe manufacturers in the United States. To establish snoh an industry and to introduce tbe product in competition with older and better known manufacturers in tbo short period of two years is something to be proud of. The Lock Haven Clay WorkB Company have proven that capital Invested in developing tbe fire olay deposits of this seotion is profitably invested, and that there can be no competition by manufacturers whose works are not in tbe fire olay and soft coal regions. Millions of ton* of as fine clay as can be found in tho United States exists In the Clinton county deposits and there is an almost absolute certainty that Lock Haven is destined to be the centre of the manufacturing district when this hidden wealth is developed. A dozen snch plants as that operated by tbe Look Haven Clay Works Compauy aould not supply the present demand for sewer pipe in tbe Eastern States. The oheapness of soft coal, the inexhaustible supply of olay, and tbe facilities for shipping are advantages found at few other places, and are such as will eventually give Lock Haven prominenoe as a manufacturing centre. LATE LOCK HAVEN LOCAL? The Happenings of the Last Two Days Told in a Concise Manner, pleasure tours to the pacific. A TATAL ACCIDENT LAST EVENING Under the Pennsylvania Railroad's Personally-Conducted Svstem. When, several years ago, the Pennsylvania Railroad Company inaugurated its personally-conduoted tourist system and originated tbe feature of a chaperon for such parties, a promise was given that the system would be so extended as to include all portions of the Union. Tbe far South bas been successfully invaded by these unique pleasure parties during the past few winters, and it is now announced that during the coming winter and spring a seleot series of tours will be inaugurated to California and tbe Pacific Coast. The Pacific Coast tours will include all those characteristics which have mado the Pennsylvania tours bo successful, with many new features added. The parties will be conveyed from the principal otties of the East in special trains of Pullman vestibule, sleeping, dining and observation cars, oonstruoted especially for this sorvioe, and running through on limited express schedules to San Franaisco. A Tourist Agent of experience and a Chaperon will aocompacy tho party and look after their comfort; the baggagsjNrill be ohecked through and every detail will be thoroughly arranged, so aa to give tbe tourists the fullest measure of comfort. Having arrived at San Francisco tbo party will be permitted to travol at will to any points on the ooast, unrestricted to any fixed itinerary, on tickets supplied by tho Pennsylvania railroad. This departure from the older methods of personally-conducted systems reliovos the tourist of any restriction of his movements, and while tbe Tourist Agent Is still in reaob, if his assistance is required, no beaten track is to be followed by tho pleaBure-seeker. At the oxpiratlon of tho return limit the party will again rendozvous at San Francisco, whore the special train will take them for the return trip. Tho oxcnrslon tiokets, whlob will be arranged to cover all necessary expenses, will bo sold at tbe lowest reasonnblo rate as tbo transcontinental and coast linos have signified their willingness to oo-oper-ate fully with tboPennaylvanlaTailioad.and tbe return limit will be sufficiently liberal for a thorough visit to all tho attractivo plaaea of tho Pacifio Coast. The pleasure tours will be arranged for January, February, Maroh and April of 1891. The oxaot dates will bo announced lator. Tho Paoilic Coast is admittedly tho nioal attractivo rogion of America for tourist, health, or ploasuro aoeker, and in the lu-stitution of thooe high-gr3ded tours tho Pennsylvania railroad will proaon'. tho ui08t doalrablo, attractive and comfortable means ovor afforded tho American poopie of roaohing this groat land of sunishint!, (lowers, fruit, health and scenic beauty.

Sncceisful Raid of Train Bobbers' on An Express Gar on the Hlsaoort Pacific. Kansas Cut, Ang. 17.-The Limited Express on tbe Missouri Pacifio road was stopped by seven masked men to-night near Otterville. The robbers secured about $S0,000. When tbe train stopped the engineer was commanded to go to tbo express car and tell the messenger to open the door. He did so. When he reached the express car he found that the robbers had five confederates stationed at convenient places about the car, all armed, and their faces concealed behind masks. Ho walked to the door of the express oar, and, covered by tbe revolvers of the robber, called to the express messenger, Sam Avery, to open tbe door. Avery, suspecting no danger, pushed back the door. As be did so the leader and one confederate pushed tbeir revolvers in and ordered the messenger to bold up bis hands, Tbe order was obeyed, and three of tho robbers jumped into the oar. They proceeded immediately to the safe; wbioh was locked. Avery was commanded to open it, and at tbe point of a revolver did ao. One of the robbers nnfolded a gunny sack, and in it were placed tbe entire contents of the safe. The robbers then made an examination to see if they bad overlooked" anything, and finding nothing more of value backed out of the oar, tbeir revolvers pointed at the messenger, and made good their escape. A later dispatch says tbat the amount secured by the robbers is unknown, bat is believed to be large. KENOVO LOCAL8. Ubkovo, Pa., Aug. 18th, 1890.
