Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - October 10, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAK-NO. 100. ,OCK HAVEN. PA., FRIDAY. OCTOBER 10, 1S90. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS INSLOIS �nOTHKR9---PUBLISHERS CURRENT COMMENT. Demamateu's tour throughout, the State is wonderfully successful. It is enthusing Republican!* all along the lino. The result will be a big rote and a big majority. Ex-Goveknoh Pattison should return tho $100,000 of State funds from the bauk of which he is President, or else decline to preBS a similar issue againBt Delamater. Both aro in the Bame boat, morally and legally. Sexatoh Quay says all the signs point to the re-election of Major MoKinlcy iu tho gerrymandered Ohio district, notwithstanding that bis Democratic opponent, who is a millionaire, has expressed his willingness to spend $100,000, if necessary, to secure bis election. California has no reason to grumblo over the ceusns. Her increase of 39.24 per cent, iu population since 1SS0 should satisfy her inhabitants. The Golden Stats has a great big future before her. She is bound to be ono of the richest of American commonwealths in time to come. Ex-Sexator Emery has been weighed in the balance and found wanting. His promised rcvolations have dwindled away to nothing. Senator Delamater steatlilj-rises in public estimation as the canvass progresses, the reaction of tho charges withont any foundation benefiting him materially. In' our ago improvements follow so fast upon one another that no sooner is a patent grauted for an Invention than the next day it is superseded by something better. Now we bear of a new gun which uses carbonic acid gas for au explosive, which bas a pressure of COO pounds to the square inch and so oheap tbat 250 bullets can be fired for a penny. It is not often the biter is bitten, but it did happen over in New York on Inst Bat urdaj. It came about through the efforts of a 'Vreen goods" man to play the usual game on two Alabamians. They had been swindled onoe, but they came back to get even and get revenge. Ail the usual preliminaries were gone through and the bogus packages were about to be turned over instead of the genuine ones when the Alabamians drew their pistols, grabbed tho green goods man's wares and started for home, juBt $1,700 ahead of the game. Last year, when the importations of Sumatran tobacoo reached the extraordinary amount of 42,351 bales, the country was surprised beyond measure, as it was largely in excess of any previous year's importations. But the nine months of the present year bavo broken tho locord, no Ibbs than 59,214 bales having arrived up to October lBt. In 1881 the importations were just 2,877 bales. These figures prove bow the tobacco growers of tho United States have been injured by this foreign coropetion. PEBSOKAL PEsTCILISiOS.

About 100,000 papers got out before the seizure was made, and tho Northers edition of 15,000 is detained. The paper offered to give bond for any amount to cover auy verdict which might be rendered, but tbe postal authorities were obdurate and refused to let tbe papers go through tbe mail. The objectionable fcatuie consisted in the announcement that it would distribute prizes in its Christmas Box, which feature, tho Constitution, like many other papers, has been running in connection with tbe weokly Constitution for years.

And in five minutes we were well acquainted, and playing eucher in the shadow of a box oar. He didn't take me for a thief, and I never suspected binfeof murder, and tbe two hours went by ia a hurry. Not so in tbe depot, however. For tbe first half hour the two women glared at each other. Neither would speak first. Each was afraid of the other.

Only one had a watoh. She oonsulted it every five minutes, but tho other dared not ask her what time it was.
