   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - October 8, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                tflNTH YEAK-HIO. 188. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 8. 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS IXSI.OK BKOTHEKS---PCBL18HMS CURRENT COMMENT. Tun changes made by the tariff will cn-ricb soma people, but tbey Trill impoverish nobody in tbis aountry. If the Democratic pnpera understood public sentiment as veil as tbey claim to do, thoy would give us a test on tariff reform. Iv tbo "Niagara tunnel" is halt tbo commercial suosess expected, Niagara Falls will "make millions of money for manufacturers.     '    V' Ex President Cleveland is going West to open bis campaign. He has recently discovered that the only way to keep down his troublesome obesity is to take plenty oftxerciBe. By tbo time be is oleoted President he expects to be. too tbin to cast a respectable shadow.  The Btatument tbat a tin plate (aotory tbat will employ 2,000 bands is to be speedily created at Sparrow Point, near Haiti more, by the Pennsylvania Stool Company and a combination of capitalists, is significant as evidence of what the - McKinloy Tariff will do for labor. Work for 2,000 men means food, clotbea and homes for probably 10,000 persons. According to Ohio Republican papers the Dcmosrats of tbat Btate aro between the devil and tho deep sea. In the Democratic gerrymander of the State tbey left one preoiuot out of a Congressional .district, aud it is tbe opinion of the ablest lawyers that this omission will invalidate the whole apportionment. But be tbat as it may, in MoKinley's district tbo Democrat* are badly frightened and the election of the- antbor of tbb Tariff 'bill is probable. " ' Fnoii all parts of the State visited by Senator Delsmater oomea the news that the Republicans are dosing their ranks and nniting for an old-fashioned victory In November. Stories of local and other forms of disaffection are growing smaller and bcaatiluDy Jess while divisions In toe Damocratia ranks are widening. Ex-Senator Wallace remains abroad, -whither be repaired immediately after the ungrateful treatment he received at the bands of the Democracy at tbe Scranton convention, in July laat, and it is doubtful whotber be will do anything to help Pattison should he return before the election. Sa the campaign is in good shape for 3he Repnb. licans and will grow better as it progresses. Earnest, active autl united effort will do it. But let Republicans continue to arouse the maBseB to tbe importance of the Interests at stake and work as though they feared defeat, and the victory will be greater than ever before. The Circa*. Yesterday was anything but a favorable day for a circus. The mnddy streets, drizzling rain and threatening clouds prevented many from enjoying tbe pleasures offered by tbe Main & Van Amburg Monster Shown. Nevertheless tbo big tent contained a large audience in the afternoon and iu the evening it was comfortably filled. Of the performance and management wo have nothing bat words of commendation. The menagerie was not laige but contained some Quo specimens from tbe wilds of distant shores. Tbe riding was good, tbe trapeze performance thrilling, the dogs and goat well trained, the olowns funny, tha tumbling and horizontal bar acts well executed, tho throwing of tbe daggers thrilling and in fact everything about tbo show first-class. With fino weatber and tbo reputation thus gained the large tents would be inadequate to bold tbe crowds tbat would flock to see it upon a return date next season. Thoy abow in Eellefonte to day. Steadily QbIdIdc Kavor. In January, 18S9, tho first number issued under tbo management of Mr. John Bris-ben Walker, after bis purchase of the Cosmopolitan, there were printed 10,000 oapi'es. Ia January, 2890, the edition had risen to S0,000 copies, and ten months later it had come up to 30,000 copies, while it is confidently expected that by January next it will top the 100,000 mark, bringing It within tbo list of tbo tbreo leading illustrated magazines of tho world. The way in which this magazine has taken tbo public fancy has bcon so unusual that we feel justified iu calling it jto your notice. Mtt'wg no announcements as to its future policy, it hat gone along with steadily improving steps, each month taking a stronger hold upon public favor. Arc LlehlH In tsclltfuiitv.

Series of Tremendous Explosions at the DnPont Powder Works Yesterday. MANY PEOPLE KILLED AND IHJUEED The Concussion Shakes Up Wilmington Five Miles Away, Where Many Fanes of Glass are Broken From tho Shock-The Entire Upper End of Ihe Great Factory mown Oat. Wilmisgto.y, Del., Oct. 7.-Several startling explosions in quick succession, some counted five, others seven, at 3:30 p. m, to-day, announced to Wilmington a disaster at tbe Dupont Powder Works on tbo Brandy-wine. A. rush was made for tho telephono, but nothing ooiild be learn ed beyond vague reports of damage. An Associated Press representative hastened at once to tbe soenc, and bas just wired tbat the whole* aeotion of tbo works known as tbo "Upper Yards," is a complete- wreck. Following is a partial list cf killed: Martin Dolan, James Dolan, William McGsr-rey, John Bsrtygan, William Donniaon, John Diet-, Thomas Green and a woman named Rose Dougherty. Several others aro missing. The more Boriously injured so far as learned arc: Daniel Harkens, William Logan will probably die, Annie and Marie Dolan, daughters of James Dolan, who 1b among the killed; James Ward, leg broken and hart internally; Bagh Terry, picked up unconscious, luxuries unknown; John McDowell, head badly hurt; Mrs. William McDowell, ear cut off and head badly oat; her two-year-old daughter, seriously injured; Lydia Anderson, arm broken and badly bruised. "scene of t1ie explosions. J The Dnpont powder mills extend along tbo Brandy wine nbiefly on. the west bank and close to tho water for about two miles. They are divided into the "Upper," "Hagley" and "Lower" yards. Tho former is some three miles and tbe lattor five miles from Wilmington. At the "Upper11 was tha office and business boadtiuar-tors of tbs company, and clustered around it were some fifty houses inhabited by employes ofj the yawder mill, all of which were wrecked. The damage to property cannot be thoroughly ostimatcd to-nigbt. The force of tho concussion even broke windows in some parts of Wilmington, some four and five miles away. The Dupont Company is n complete wrock, and six mills are in ruins. Several members of the Dupont firm were injured by falling walls and broken glass, but none of thcni seriously. 1IASY K.UIROV,- KSCAl'ES. Among the slightly injured arc: Eugene Dupont, head of tbe firm of Fraucis G. Dupont and Charles I. Dupont. Tbey and several clerks in the office were cut by fragment*! of broken glass, but nono of them seriously. Tho dead were all employes of the company and were in aud about tho mills that exploded. Several workmen are missing and are believed to have been blown into fragment*. Tbe wounded received their injuries among tbe wails of their falling bouseaand by broken glass and flying debris. Had' there not been a general and instant exodus from their bousos at tbo first shock, tbe death list would have been much heavier, as many would have been crashed in the ruins of their dwellings. The first explosion occurred it, one of the packing mills where a workman named Green was reooiving a can of hexagonal powder to be shipped for the u�e of tbo United States government. cause of tub disaster.. Iu some way a spark communicated to the can, and blew It up. Instantly tho packing mill exploded, aud other mills in tho upper yard, Beven or eight in number, followed at intervals of less than one second. All these, except one, were rolling mills, in which the ingredieutB of gun powder are pulverized by tbo action of vertical rollers of stone, turning slowly around a central post. The whole ma: ohinery is driven by water power. Tho old one was a "mixing mill." Immediately after the explosion a large building known as tbe "Rofincry," located near tbe centre of the village, took fire. It was a matter of lifo and death to tbe whole population that tbis fire should be extin gniahed before It communicated with tho powder tbe building contained. Taking their lives in their bauds, tho Dupont fire brigade fought the tlaincB which bad oaught the roof. It was touch and go between success and destruction, but tbe firemen won. Had the rouf fallen in, it is doubtful if any man, woman or child in the vicinity would huvo escaped death or serious injury. Fiy'i'V FAMILIES COMEI.EtS About fifty families aro rendered homeless by tho disaster, and many of them were so dased by tbe terrible event of those tew seconds, as to seem hardly conscious of where they are or what they are doing. Tbe injured are being gathered {into tbo-hospital buildings appertaining to tbo works, and are receiving such sur-1 gical and othor aid as they noed. There will bo no rcoro chance of gettiug soy news from there to-night, and iu fact, owiog to the rocky and wooded character of the locality, but little can bo done in the way of searching for the mifsing, or ascertaining tho extent of the damage done to proporty until day light. Telephono communication with tho whole neighborhood was broken off by tho oxplosibo. Tho telegraph and telephono offices in Wilmington havo been besieged for two bours by anxious Inquirers having relatives or friends in tbo works regarding whose fate they are in suspense. Undertakers have gone out from Wilmington to give their services in preparing tho dead for burial, while Wilmington surgeons were prompt to hurry to the spot and tender aid. extent of the damage. At the office- of tho Dnpont Company one of tbe members of tbe Orm stated that tbe loss in tbo mill property was as follows: A dry house, one magazine, paok-ing house and corning mill. Tbe structures partially destroyed are glazing room and press room. No oxaot figures in regard to tbe quantity of powder lost oan bo given but tho estimates run all tbe way from ten tons to f^rty. Of the killed the bodies of throe only bavo been recovered. Mrs. Rose Dougherty was found dead in her attic. Tbo body of William MoGarvey was found with his bead completely blown off, and tbe body of Green was found anmasked, lying noar tbo magazine, where ho had been engaged soldering a powder keg. At 3 o'clook this evoning the other bodies had not been seen or hoard of. the loss halv a million". Ic is estimated tbat the total loss cannot be less than 9300,000. As tbe mills were approached the scone of extreme, disaster opened to view was a mass of blackened ruins. To the right is a short street with thirty houses distributed on either side, so dismantled tbat .tbey are uninhabitable;' Women and obildren are wandering around moaning and wringing their bands. From the upper binks of the hill a comprehensive view of tho scene of the disaster is obtainable. Below, 10 yards off, the powder magazine, a large stone structure with its surroundings, is completely wiped out. Hot a vestige but a great gaping bolo indicates where tho magazine once stood. a scexe or ncis. All around are wrecked storo houses, barrm and buildings smashed in and overturned like so many card boxos. Tbe Btirfaco or tbo oartb for several acres is dragged and swept as if with a glgantia harrow. A thick growth of trees which approached tho mills on tbroo Bides is mown down almost like grass, and tho trunks and branches broken up into blaok-oned splintors. Tho timber has the exact appearance of having suffered from a tornado. Farther off tie residences within half a milo of tho mills are wrecked, and tbe out houses aud yards are nttorly demolished. The residences of Mrs, Henry Dnpont, Frances Dupont and Eugene Dupont are badly shattered. The Tariff �n Tobncca. The following is that part of the Mc-Ivinlcy bill relating to tobacco: SCIIKUri.E    f.-TOBACCO   AND   MANL'FAC-TL'BEUS OF. 230.

Hnll-The W. B. O. Inspection-An Insane Man at Large-Licom-inn's Judicial Cpntoat-To-Kiaht'a Show -Arc Liehta in Bellefonto-The Circus- Steadily Gaining wivor. The visit of ex-Governor Pattison to this city yesterday, accompanied by bis colleagues on tbe Demoaratio State ticket was an event for whieh the leaders of the party have been preparing for the last ten days. The Republican mass meeting held on Wednesday night of last week was suob an outpouring of tbe masses on Bhort notice, evory effort possible was made to fill tho oourt room on the occasion of Mr. Pat-tison'a visit. The Mill Hall band, after playing for a while in  front of the Irvtn House, was started oat at 3 o'clook, to parade the principal streets of the city, with a man walking In front of thorn, carrying a transparency on which was printed, in big letters, the announcement of Mass Meeting at tbe Court House," and tho names of tbe speakers. Tho special train on which the ex-Governor and bis party .travels with Jefferson-ian simplicity, arrived here behind schedule time aud it was almost 5 o'clock when the mooting was called to order by County Chairman Brungard and T. C. Hippie, Esq., was elected chairman. Mr. Hippie apologized briefly for the speakers being lato by saying they would not-bo late on election day, meaning' no doubt that they would be on time to take tbo fast sailing boat up salt river, although be didn't say i. The court room was crowded when Mr. Pattison, who was tbe first speaker introduced, began his address. After the ap-plausu'which greeted the speaker on his first appearance had subsided tbe audience fell into a sort of melsnoholy condition, and no wonder. The shadows of night were falling, and a sort of funeral gloom pervaded tbe placo' and lent a dismal, heart sinking air to the whole affair, which was depressing to the spirits of tha faithful who composed the audience. Mr. Pattisoa's text was "boulsm," and how well tbo Wallacomen in tbe audience were pleased with his remarks oaa of conrse only be imagined. Ho also told something about tbo economics! administration of publio affairs when Robert E. Pattison was Governor, and confused the minds of his hearers with statistics relating to real and personal estate. Mr. Pattison is an able speaker and made the best of tbo brief period of time alloted to him. He was followed by Miohael J. .Ryan, of Philadelphia, Mr. Black, the Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor and W. H. Barclay, thB candidate for Secretary of Internal Affairs. Blany of tbe audience retired while Mr. Pattiaon was speaking, owing, no doubt, to tbe lateness of tbo hour, but tho people who bad comfortable scats remained until the meeting closed. Tho meeting was considered by tho Democratlo leaden to be a success, and it no doubt was so far as tho attend-auco was concerned. Lycomlnc's Jnulelnl Content.

Washington, Oat. 7.-SeoieUry. Win-dom wrote a letter to Seorctiry Blaine today, inviting bis attention to tbo following provision of tbe present tariff law relating to tbe lumber sobedule: "Tbat in oaae any foreign aountry �hall impose an export duty upon pine, spruce, elm or other logs exported to the United States from such country, then the duty upon sawed lumber herein provided for when imported from auch country, shall remain the same, and fixed by the law in force prior to tbe passing of this act." ' Secretary Windom says it is understood tbat tho government of Canada now Imposes an export dnty on spruce, pine and. codar logs and shingle bolts made of pine and cedar, thUB rendering sawed lumber m ported from that country into the .United States liable to duties under tbe old tariff. Representations have boen made to the Treasury Department by persons interested to the effect that the Canadian ejovorumcnt haa determined to take no steps towards removing tbe export duty on logs until officially notified by this government of the provisions of tbe new tariff act; and with the view of granting relief to those parties Secretary Windom requests that such notification be given the Canadian government at as early"* day as possible. j An lueane Man at Xargfe'..
