Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - August 22, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAH-NO. 148. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. F1UDAY. AUGUST 22. 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINSI.OK BROTHERS---PDHI.ISHKKS CURRENT COMMENT. ANOTHER HEAVY WIND STORM "The friends of tlio River and Harbor bill are anxious." Thoy would be more anxious, if tbe country had to pasB upon this measure CnicAGO is having a sight of tronblo over the Fair sito. And the final sottlc moot of tbe question does not appear ti be in sight yet. The man who Introduced the English sparrow Into Amerioa, deserves a plaoe history beside the man who introduced rabbitB in Australia. Onr of the marvels of tho day is un undoubtedly Mr. Edison's phonographic olookt whioh instead of ringing out thi hours, or quarter hours, speaks tbem iu tones that can be beard and understood as plainly as any ordinary conversation. Gen. Basks Bays that in 1S5G, when be was Speaker of the House, he made rulings in regard to the presenoe of a quorum exactly Bimilar to tboBe made by Speaker Reed. It will now be in ordor for tho Democrats to allude to him as ox-Czar Banks. Brazil's new constitution haBbeen promulgated. It is a very exoollont one, ap parently, principally bocauso it is fashioned very closely after that of tho United States. Tho provinces will be transform-in into self-governing States. Now let the Brazilians heartily unite in support of their fundamental law and they will get along. Half a dozen years ago oyoloues were practically unknown east of the Ohio river; now they are aB common in this section as on the Western plains. Is tbe time at hand when here as in Dakota, no dwelling will be complete without a oyolone pit? The people of this country want some new and better information respecting tbe law of Btorms, and they want it as soon as it oan bo furnished. Will the weatherwise please make a special study of the oyolone Rnd Its ways? Mr. Leokard Rhose'b circular letter to the grangers of Pennsylvania, demanding that they shall vote the Democratic ticket in tbe fall is likely to do that industrial organization more harm than good. The Orange is not a political party to begin with, and this attempt to convert it into apiece of party machinery to subserve bis individual aims is resented on all Bides. Mr. Rhone is charged with being very anxious to secure a nomination for Congress at the hands of the Democratic party, and this may have stimulated his newborn zeal in behalf of Mr. Pattison. Democratic Caucuses. Nominations for delegates to the Democratic County Convention was made in this city last night, and also for Demo-oratio County Committeemen. The following is the result of the Caucuses: First ward-Hugh McLeod, David Sweeley, J. P. Arnold, Gottleib Bonsa. Committee, Edward Goldstein. Second ward-H. Simon, Joseph Hab-orstroh, Maj.

Arrangements have been completed whereby tbe Cuban Giants, (late of the Interstate League) and the Williamsport club will play an exhibition game of ball in this city Monday afternoon on the grounds near Hippie's mill. It has been some time since the people of Lock Haven have had an opportunity of witnessing a professional game and great interest will doubtless be taken in this one. The Giants aie one of the strongest teams in the state ouUido of Philadelphia and Pittsburg, and tbe Williamsport olub will be strengthened by Rickley and others of like note. Look out for a great game Monday afternoon. At Nlppcno I'ark. The spooial train which convoyed th tannorymen, their families and friends to Nippeno Park, left the lower passenger station at 8:15 this morning, Tho train was made up of seven coaches and a baggage car.

John Christy, aged IS, a horse changer, Bon of Stable Boss Christy, was leading a horse whioh became frightened by c. crash of thunder and dashed into the building just aB the roof fell. Christy followed after the animal, and as he has not since been seen he is believed to have been killed. The storm which caused this disaster began about C:45 o'clock this evening. The thunder and lightning was very severe, and the rain fell in torrents. The wind, which was scarcely noticeable at first, gradually increased in severity until at 7 o'clock it was blowing at the rate of forty miles an hour. It was at this hour that the centre portion of the long high walls of the car stable gave way. The wall is said to have been weak. About a year ago the building inspectors, it is reported, condemned it. Only last week men were at work patching it up. crushed in a car. At tho time the wall fell oars Nob. f.G5 9G7 and GG8, of tbe Twelfth and Sixteenth streets oompany, were standing in line ready to be Btruck off by the starter. AugUBt Paul, driver of No. (JG8, and an old employe of the road, was sitting in his oar eating supper, whioh had been brought to him by his wife near the depot. It had been Mrs. Paul's habit for a long time to place her husband's evening meal in a has kei and accompanied by their only son go to the depot where they would wait iu a oar while the husband and father ate. In this car were also Charles Severn, the conductor, unmarried, and young Charles Brown. When tho roof foil tho car was completely crushed, and tho horses at tached to it were killed. Paul and his wife were instantly killed. Severn, when taken out, whispored a few inarticulate sentences and then expired. Brown was taken out in an unconscious condition, Both arms and both legs are broken and his ooudition is precarious. Paul's sou was the IcaU huit ot those in the car. One arm is broken and ho is injured internally Car No. CG7 stood just iu front of 'iGS This was also crushed. Tho driver, Charles Fisher, was taken out dead. Con ductor ilenry Jacoby was wounded on the head and so severely shocked that 'loath is expected at aoy moment. pro �" id n t i a i. ks '�' \ '� � :�<. \hc cuLdn<.;or :�j -i::v.:r ot W-j weiii jjicviijuiitialiy u-vny Ii'jil thci" �y.ii: aL tliu m.>tr.ut the vi.ll fell, mi.! ri, ojOLijie�l injury. .Jumtri Martin, ilnvor ul cur No. l'J, ot thu ioiith tuid Kktuuth slrcou line, Wdfl on hid c;u ready to niovo oat cJ the depot when the crash came, i I is car was smusiicd und he wan ho soii.vjBly injured about the back and internally that his life is despaired of. Henry Tradwel-ler, a horeo changer, was caught by flying timber and badly hurt. An uuknown boy, who was loitering about tbe stable was struck and hurt. The depf-t was very long and used as a thoroughfare, and it is barony possible that other pcrr.oni were caught under the wreck. Workmen are engagod in searching for-he body cf young Christy, which is believed to ha buried in the ruins, but progress is slow and it will not bo known ^ntil to-morrow whether or not there were any other casualties. EMPTY CARS ."KUSflTlD. Thirty or more empty oarB which had been turned in for the night wero crushod into kindling wood. Some of the drivont and conductors, who are usually on their oars, wero away from them just as tho wall fell, and to this lucky ohanoe they owe their lives, as tho cars were smashed and the horses killed. This is the third time within elevon years that a portion o"" this immense stuoturo, oovering a larg( block, has been injured by wind. Tht< wind which caused this damage unroofec. four houses on Eleventh street above York, about three blocks from the depot. Other damage by wind and rain is reported from different parts of the city. FOUND AFTER FORTY YEARS. A Charley KonB Romance That Ended In n Hfippy Reunion. Mouse, 111., Aug. 20.-Over forty years ago there occurred at Elmira, N. Y., an abduction that in matter of local interest fairly rivaled the famous case of Charley Ross. Tho victim of this outrage was Hiram, the eight-year-old sou of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Grogg. An old gypsy like hag named Debby Blood met some men in the road near where the little boy was standing one day, and for some trivial reason gave them a round cursing. The child reproved her for her wickedness, whereupon she turned upou him and told him that she would either kill him or break his heart. Soon aftor this she stole him and, with a vicious character named Lookery, lied to Hudson, Wis. Thence thoy went to Catfish Bay, and afterward to Richmond, in the same State. Part of the time thoy led a shiftless, nomadic life, and part of it they farmed on a miserable little clearing. The boy was made to believe that Debby Blood was his mother and Lockery his stepfather, and that his own name was Gage. Gradually his recollection of tho old home and his family faded away and he accepted the tales told him as the truth. He was oruolly used. Hard work and maltreatment wero his lot, and several times the virago who stole him tried to poison him, but he lived through it all, and finally, about fifteen years ago, ho was married to an estimable young woman aud made hia home at Richardson, Oak county, Wis. Upon this Debby Blood disappeared, vowing she should never be seen or heard from any more, aud so far she has kept her word. After yoars of fruitless search for their lost child tho Greggs moved to tho West, settling near this place. No tidings came from tho lost one, and all hopo of seeing him again was abandoned. A short time ago, however, accident led persons living hero to believe that Hiram Gregg was still live. Investigation led to certainty, and to day tho lost boy, now a man with gray hair, was restored to the mother who has mourned for him till the grave had almost opened at her feet. It was an affecting reunion. BASK HALL RKCOKD. The Three Organization* and Their Standing to Date. national league. Boston-Boston 8, Cleveland 0. Brooklyn-Brooklyn 4, Chicago 0.
