Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - August 25, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEiYK-NO. ir>0. LOCK HAVEN, 1"A, MONDAY, AUUl'JST 2-1, 1890. P1UCE-TWO CENTS EVENING JSXPBESS rFssLoK" KKOTI1KRS - - - rOBUSHKBS CURRENT COMMENT. Tm: firemen of Pennsylvania ought tJ romoinber that Governor Robert E. Patt -Ron votoed tbo bill croating a pension fuu 1 for injured and disabled tiro-men. Tiif- new "ordti of business'r in tbe Senate will, it la hoped, result in tho dt-iug of public business in order ond with dispatch. "Government is decision as well aa deliberation." Now that action has been suspended oa tbe Federal Election bill, the Detnooratio press will have time to cool off. In December tbe beat of tbeir discussion ought to save them winter tlannfiU. Tiif. veterauB of tbe Grand Army are still bale and hoarty. It is said that at their reoent reunion in Boston they consumed �450,000 pies- Such being theoase, it is quite evident we have a veteran reserve which oan survive another war. According to reoent reports regarding the failuro of the potato crop in Ireland are gross exaggerations, and are traceable to Nationalist souraes, the object beiug to create a scare for political ends. According to the Unionists tbo blight ia by no means general; and tbe presumption U that tho supply will he ample and the prio** reasonable. Ireland csnnot well dispense �vith tbo potato. ALL EYES ON TERRS HAUTE At the Treasury Department it U saic the closeness of the mouey market \& large ly due to tbe faot that there have recently been heavy exports of gold to meet foreign demands and enormouB purchases of imports in anticipation of the adoption of the McKinley Tariff bill. Importers are buying as heavily na they can bo as to benefit by the increased duties. The Sumatra cigar wrapper people are laying in largo millions of supplies. The terrible accident which oocurred on the Mount Fenn Gravity railroad, near Reading on Friday, will provo a disastrous blow to the poplarity of that road as an excursion route. It is manifest that these gravity roads, on whiob the sole dependence for controlling tbe Bpeed of tbe cars is tbe brakes are not safe. There should be some other appliance which would come into use either automatically or at the instant command of the brakeman and atop the car when tbe brakes fail to act. Tue annual report of Miss K, F. Kimball, secretary of tbe Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle, Bhows that this popular educational movement has Rpread over the whole globe. Tbe class of '03 is lu.-000 strong, and has members in every State of tbe union, includiug 1,000 In Pennsylvania, as well as in Canada,Mexico, South America, Great Britaiu, Germany, Austria, Russia, India, China, Japan, Hawaii, Hayti, Siam, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and tbe islands of the sea. _ At the Opera House. A fair sized audience greeted tbe well-known Rinehart Sisters last evening at the Opera HouBe. The Rinehart Sisters are charming actresses, and especially Leo, a Mi6s young in years who is already ft versatile actress. The singing of several members of tbe company was great, especially that by Miss Ileitio Hinebart, in that beautiful descriptive solo entitled "On the Bridge at Midnight." Miss liinebaiL, is a very ^accomplished danaeuae. The songH of Goldio and Stella Rinehart was appreciable, as were also catchy sougs by other members of this excellent company.- Omaha Davy Bee, March 18th, 18S9. Letter Lint.

Tkhre Hacte, Aug. 24 -Nothing authoritative will be given out as to the deliberations of the Supreme Council uut I to-morrow at tbe earliest. It is among th 3 probabilities that thodeeisiou of tbe council may not be reached for several days* The committee of throe appointed la? night has been In seseion since tbe hour 0 their appointment. They will prcnar 1 certain propositions to be presented to tho council which will define the action of tbo supreme body. Tbe Associated Press correspondent called at Sargent's house to-day. He had carefully read the letter of Powderly to Mr. Webb, sent oat last night. While-President Sargent would not express an opinion as to the action the couocil woult' take on the report of the committee, ye be freely expressed himself about Powder ly's miaeivd. He Said: "I admire Mr Powderly's stand. Powderly puts Welti in the position where he belongs and which, when the public understand, wtl convince it that Webb in wrong. Mr Webb's position is directly opposite oi that taken by Depew, his superior oiiicer. Depew has always advocated the organization of labor." THE COUNCIL IN SESSION. Special reports have gone out from Terre Haute within the last hour ihat the Supreme Council to-nigbt have gone into exeoutive session. Sargeant personally tells tbo representative of the Associated Press that the meeting is onlyinfor mal and will have no bearing on the official statement which will be made public to-morrow or noxt day. Presidont Sargeant was shown tho statement made by Webb in which the latter said be was of the opinion that the Terre Haute convention will do little or nothing in support of the action of the Knights of Labor, etc. Sargent after reading the dispatch said^ "Why did not Webb investigate those charges last Wednesday when Powderly requested an investigation? Why doea be wait until the true facts are given to the public through the agency of sworn affidavits? It looks Uko a 'nigger in a wood pile.' " This is all that Sargeant would say on the subject. WILL CEHTAlSiiY ENTKK THE KHAY. Those who are deep in tbe confidence governing the powers of the Firemen \s Brotherhood say that judging from the developments of yesterday it ia absolutely certain that the Federation will enter the fray. A final effort may bo made they say, to induce Mr. Webb to treat with tbe Federation, but it will be but a matter of form as his action olearly indicates that be would follow the oourau ho has laid out for himself and the corporation. THE OH'SriL AlunriiNS. After a session of one hour tho Supreme Council adjourned until *;;;o a. m. The report of the tmb.cotnmiueo hurt bi*en completed, but tbe Council decided not to outer upon its consideration tu-night. It is HQtiu-offvaially announced that, tho ru-sult of tho meeting of the Supreme Council will be mado public by noon to-morrow. OFFICIAL-- CONFIDENT AS ''M-. NEW Vuuk, Aug. ^4.-The 'isu:il Sun day quietude prevailed around the Gr;ind Central depot to-day. Tho official* of tin: railroad were at their pohts nhual, but every one declared that no trouble was ant:uipated. Referring to Powderly'a latest manifesto, which was published in this morning's papers, Webb said that all statements bearing on the management of the road were untrue. He will investigate the charges made by tho men whose affidavits are attached to Powdei ly's manifesto, and will make public the result. Powderly and his colleagues left town J to-night for Albany to attend a convention of District Assembly No. to-morrow. Hayes Raid uo definite information bus yet been received from Terre Haute, but In; believes that the Federation will mippor1 , tho policy of Powderly. A TIE-CP ON THE WEb'i hlK'Ke. A 1.11 any, Aug.
