   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - August 23, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                NINTH YEAli-NO. 149. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. SATURDAY, AUGUST 2:5, 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING- EXPRESS CLINSLOK HKOTHKRS---POKLISHEBS CURRENT COMMENT. Tue carrier pigeon has a commit tor the swallow. Oue of the latter birds was sent from Paris to Bordoaux, made the distaDco-300 miles-in two hours, and returned to Paris the same evening in the same time. Mus. Grant has been impelled to give her cousout to the removal of the Gener al's remains from Riverside to Arlingtoo, exacting only that, pursuant to the Gen eral b own wish, that when she dies sbo may lie by his side. The Lehigh Valley railroad has taken steps to utilize the vast accumulations o olura at its mines. The pi^cess is simple Largo screens revolve in tanks of water. The flno dust is washed out while fine coa of and size is retained and is of consider ablo commercial value. The report that Guatemala and Salva dor have Bigned articles of peace and have agreed to 6umbit their differences to arbi tration, with the United States as arbitrator, is highly creditable to those little republics. They have quarreled long enough. They can feel sure that they will be fairly dealt with by their bis? Northern friend. Am I registered*.' is the question that every Republican voter should be asking himself, and if he has any doubt about it he should at ouce make suro of It by calling upon the Assessor of his district. No man should lose his vote for want of registration and assessment. Our friends, the enemy, are always on the alert in this matter and never lose votes through neglect of registration. Wednesday, September 3d, will be the lafct day. Ik, as our free trade brethren so vociferously allege, the tariff is a tax paid by the consumer alone, why are the importers ruBbiDg in suoh vast quantities of foreign goods upon which the McKinley bill imposes a higher tariff ? The mad haste of tho importers to get the goods into the United States before the Tariff bill becomes a law looks very much as though tbey didn't take much stock in the free trade doctrine about tariff taxes. both sides remain firm What the Leaders Say of the Situation i'f the Strike. WAITING FOR TO-DAY'S 00NFEKENU3 The New York Press says it is annouueed on what seems to be good authority that the Senate will restore to the free list the grades of sugar between the numbers thirteen and sixteen Dutch standard, so that reciprocity will give the consumer the benefits of free sugar which the McKinley bill provided for as it came from the House. The grades in question can be consumed as imported, w.thout further refining, and will be cheap enough to be within the reach of every workingman in abundant quantity. This conclusion is said to be work of the FiDauce Committee itself, and it is highly creditable to the Republican majority of that body that they are willing to change their minds.

Iucliii': SIX PERS0SS  DASHED  TO DEATH KILLED 22 RATTLESNAKES IN ONE BAY Adventures of � l'artj of Fennelvuubina on Youngwoman'a Creek. from the Wellsboro Agitator. Last week Messrs. Ebon 15. Campbell, of WilUatnsport; A. R. Caruett, of Au-sonia, and D. L. Deane, of this place, were exploring tho timber lands of tbe Pennsylvania Joiut Lumber and Laud Compauy on tho head waters of Slate Run at.d the branches of Vouagwomaa'a creek rising near the lino between Lycoming and Clinton counties. While so engaged ou Wednesday laid an oplsode somewhat thrilling in uharaetor occurred to them. While pa.ssiug over tho point of a hilt on the north side of Baldwin run, a branch of Youugwoman's creek, they suddenly oame upon a large detached rock about which numerous rattlesnakes were congregated. Mr. Caruett was in advance, and on observing the snakes he uttered an exclamation of .surprise and abrutly bakod. The other gentleman coming up, they concluded to give battle to tUo "varmints,' aud foith-witb pitched in, and with :he aid of stout sticks which they carried for oaues, speedily dispatched eight of the rattlers which they found basking in tho sun ou the ground around the rock. This done they discovered that there were numerous reptiles hidden under a smaller rock which lay on top of tho tlrst mentioned. This smaller lock was supported above the larger one by small stones in such a way that a person could look under it, aud tho space between the two aeemcd to be pretty much titled with snakes. Uow to get them out one or two at a time so as to dispatch them without allowing any to get away was a quandary. After studying the situation, Mr. Carnett concluded that with the aid of a forked s'iuk operating from one edge of the rock, ho could shoot them out one or two at a time from the othor edge, if the other gen-tlomen could whack them when they came out. The plan proved a success, and they persevered until they had slain twelve more. Still there was at least one heard rattling under tho top rock, which they could not see, aud so a hand spike was oullod into play, tho rock was moved, and then ono more reptile was dispatched, making a total of twentyono killed at this one ay ot. The snakes ranged iu length from three and ft half to five feet, aud when all wero laid out together on tho rocks thoy wero a sight to behold. Thoro were both black and yellow ones, and as they had just shed their old skins,mauy of which were seen lyiug around, their colors were very bright nd attractive in appearance. Alter the slaughter, wheu the patty wero about ly to move on, still another snake was heard to rattle. This one was discovered to be hidden under tho large rock and could not be got at, ho at least oue escaped the party had killed a rattler at anothe.i place tho name day, and had killed two on each of the two days pieeediug, their record for tho three days was twenty-six, which makca a pretty good average.

Rhadinu, Aug. 22.-A horrible aoci deut occurred this forenoon shortly before 11 o'clock on the Mount Penn gravity railroad, a mountain route encircling Mount Penn, 800 feet above the city of Reading. The cars wero taken from point ou the outskirts uf tbe city to the top of tne mou^tiio, a distance of five miles. On returning the cars wero allowed to go down the mountain by gravity by way of another route to the point of starting. This forenoon at about 10;30 o'clock a car containing about eighteen passengers was taken from the station to the top of the muuutaiu. On the top of the mountain there is a high stone tjwer where passengers are allowed to alight to enjoy the s^ouery for thirty miles around. Ul'NMN(i EIGHTY MILES a.N IIOUK. There are different stories as to the cause of tho accident, but it appears that wheu the t:>wer was reached, a point where tho gravity portion of the road commeuces, the engine wasdetaohed when the car ran away, while the passengers were still ou board. The distance to the point of startiug is flvo miles and it is estimated that it was covered by the runaway car in ahont three minutes. The oar attained fearful speed, estimated at SO miles an hour. It remained on the track to the foot of the plane, going around all tho curves, while the passengers shrieked in their fright, and several jumped off. DASHED TO DEATU. When tho car reached the station at the foot of tbo plane it jumpod the track and rolled dowu a fifty foot embankment, where it landed upsido down with the pissengers imprisoned inside. Tho geatest excitement prevailed, and soon a largo crowd gathered. Doctors aud ambulances wore sent for and the dead and injured removed. Six were taken out dead. Among them were Charles Rettaw, aged tifty-Sve, conductor of tho ill-fated oar, and Edgar M. Levan, an attorney of this city, aged about forty. THE SEllIOUSLV INJURED. Up to nine o'clock to-n'iRbt no further deaths had occurred, but three ladies, Mrs. W. A. E. Schmel and Mrs. Hiram Sohett-ler, of this oity, aud Mrs. Broon Smith, of Wilmington, are in a very critical condition. Superintendent Deohant gives as the cause of tho accident the refusal of the brako to work properly. It was a new brake and was being exprimented. Of the other injured Mr. and Mrs. Cor-uelius liaulon aud two children, of Wissa-hiokon, all sustained contused wounds; Willie Scbruohl, aged ton, had both legs broken; Miss Kate Iloman had her lower-limbs bruised, Mary Guthrie, of Wilming ton. had her bead aud face cut; Mrs. Arnold Lewis, ol AHentowu, had her wrist broken and was otherwise iojured; Bessie md Ratio Kelly, of Chester, tbe former has a broken leg and the latter sustained painful injuries to her limbs; Mrs. Nathan Shitler, Allontown.'cut iu tho face aud head; Mrs. Cooper, of AHentowu, scalp wound, her baby was injured internally; Miss Sallio Ryo, Wilmington, painfully injured; Miss Weilor, daughter of John, Woiler, a well known citizen of Reading, seriously injured.

Yesterday he returned from the seashore where he has been for his health, but was almost immediately forced to retire to his bod. Father Mollinger baa beeu suffering for over five years with it-flamatory rheumatism, which at different times developed into other diseases. He has consulted the best medical skill in tbe world, and visited a great many places, yet bis sickness did not become alarming until a few days after the celebration of tbe late Feast of St. Authony, when be had to retire to bis room, and in a few days all hopes of bis ultimate recovery were given up. Father Mollinger fully realizes bis position, and is preparing himself for the grim messenger's call. Before he departed for the seashore, he expressed a great desire to see his new chapel, which was to cost $100,000, completed, but since his return he doeB not speak very much of anything. His many patients were anxiously awaiting his return, and when they heard that be was at home, all weut to tbe shrine of St. Anthony to receive the blessing and treatment of the famous priest. They were disappointed, and when it was learned that he may never again be seen celebrating mass in the Most Holy Name Church there was profound sorrow everywhere. Hundreds of letters from all over the country, directed to Father Mollinger, was received in his absence, but have not yet been opened. The church is thronged every morning, but the absence of the priest, who is still in their midst, casts a gloom over tbe whole community. John Christy's Body Recovered.
