   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - November 1, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                NINTH YEAH-NO. 209. JLOGK HAVEN, PA., SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 1. 1890. PRICE-TWO. CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINHLOK BROTHKKS  PUBLISHERS current comment. Don't forget that every vote for Patti-son and Elliott is a vote to repeal tbe recocitty-enaoted tariff bill. Make au extra effort next Tuesday aud ran tbe oouDty majority for Hopkins up to 1,000. That figure ought to ba kept in sight.___ Judge McCkka is at.il 1 unable to do any canvassing and bis friends should therefore work all the harder to aecaro his election, No one questions his ability and be has shown his record to be deserving of the heartiest support of the people generally, irrespective of politics. Don't fail to vote for McCrea._ SrEAKKH Heed has the courage of hiB convictions; otherwise he would not have dared to go among tbe farmers of the West and tell them that they hove been benefited by the tariff. Moreover, be proved bis assertions, and none of bis hearers eontradicted him. His convictions, then, must be about correct. Vote for Hopkins._ The voting now in progress iu the Methodist churches on the question of women delegates to the General Confer enco shows that there is no compulsion used, whatever may be the result. The vote is taken by churches, and some sho large majorities for the amendment, while others give equally large majorities against it, and some are almost equally divided. The Sixteenth District should be represented in Congress by a Republicau. It is naturally a Republican distriot by large majority and the attemrt of the Democrats to capture it at any cost should arouse every Republican to action in behalf of A. C. Hopkins. The next Congress is in danger and the election of Hopkins may save Congress to the Republicans. The Democrats do not claim more than ten or fifteen majority in the next House. Admitting that this claim will be realized, the moral effect of a victory will, nevertheless, be with tho Republicans. If, with the solid South, and with the districts which they have gerrymandered in Maryland, Ohio and Kentucky, the Democrats can do bo better than this in the North, the Republicans would have no reason to complain of tho popular verdict. Vote for Hopkins. _ The Demoaratio Renovo JVetcs gives tbe following sound advice to its readers: "Voters and citizens of Renovo and Clinton county, vote for A. C. Hopkins for Congress, as it will be a benefit to Clinton county to be represented in Congress by suoh a man as Mr. Hopkins has proven himself to be. He is, as every laboring man well knows, tbe working man's friend, first, last and all the time, besides Clinton county baa a right to the Congressman now. Therefore, we say, oast your ballot for Mr. Hopkins next Tuesday irrespective of politics." The Democratic organs will not make any capital out of the honest course of the Philadelphia Inquirer in regard to Mr. Pattfson and the signing of the South Penn bills. The Inquirer believes Mr. Patti son an honest man and has the courage to say so, but no one expects these same organs to treat Senator Delamater in the same manly and honorable way. Delamater is the peor of Pattison and the charges against him have been refuted time and again, but tbe Democratic news-1 paperB will continue to throw mud at him ' up to tbe hour of election. While Anthony J. Malone was at tbe front fighting to help save his country, P. Gray Meek remained at home and did all he could to discourage and discredit the Union oause. In fact, there was not a more blatant rebel sympathizer in the whole State than this same Meek. Now then he wants to represent this Senatorial distriot in the State Senate. Do our people want suoh a man to represent them at Harrisbnrg? We think not and we earnestly request them to vote for Anthony J. Malone, a man in every respect worthy of their most hearty support. Every veteran and every laboring man in tho district should take off their coat for Malone* and help him to defeat a man that has not, and never had, anything In common with them.  Vote for Malone. President Roberts, of tbe Pennsylvania Railroad, has been Interviewed as to tbe results of the tour of observation he has just made over his roads, Western lines and connections. His report is Important because ft shows the actual condition of tbingB from a business standpoint. There was no politics in his trip, and he had no reason to look for one state of things rather than another. Ho says he found business booming everywhere. Manufacturing is exceedingly active and its development unprecedented. The orowded condition of hie own road, with all its great facility for transportating goods, is a witness to the faot, but aside from that he saw new enterprises springing ap everywhere. It Is evident that this country Is a a high state of prosperity. TRUE STATEMENT OF FACTS The Lycoming Oonferrees Reply to the Circular Issned From Tioga County. HOW THE NOMINATION WAS MADE No Violation of Precedentor Uujust Action at tlto Cloto of the Vrolnngetl and Memorial Conference-An Answer to tho Four Reasons Given by the T1or� Representative!. To Che Republicans of rlio>ja County: Our attention has been called to a circular iBsued by the conferees from Tioga county in the recent Republicau Conference, purporting to give an account of how Mr. Hopkins was nominated for Congress, and a reason for their extraordinary action in not uniting with the other three counties in making his nomination unanimous, and for an exhibition of "kicking' entirely unwarranted by auyihing that occurred. Look at these reasons: First. That the Potter county conferrees substituted two other Republicans from that county. Second. ThatarecesH of ten minutes was not granted. Thfrd. That several prominent Republicans from Potter county arrived by the midnight train, and rode from the dtpot to the hotel In a carriage. Fourth. That these Republicans went to the Potter county candidate and held a consultation. Now what are the facts ? In the case of Tioga county, where the conferrees were elected by the people, the ones so elected being Mr. Potter, Mr. CaBB and Mr. Hoae, tho privilege of substitution was repeatedly granted, without objection, and that county was, during the conference, represented by all of the following additional gentlemen, viz: Mr. Young, Mr. Wilson, Mr. Sheffer, Mr. Smith and Mr. Graves. In the oase complained of, Mr. Ormerod was given the privilege of selecting his conferrees by the Republican convention of Potter county; a privilege that the conference clearly could not take away or abridge. More than this when Mr. Lewis gave notice that he was authorized to withdraw Mr. Ormerod's name, and asked leave to substitute in place of Mr. Mann and himself, Mr. Peck and Judge Reynolds, as conferrees from Potter county, a motion that suoh request be granted was unanimously adopted, all of the oonferrees from Tioga county being present. It will be further noticed that of the three conferrees from Tioga county signing tbe olrcular, two were not original oonferrees elected by the people to serve in that capacity, and clearly had no more right to participate in the deliberations of the conference, than did Mr. Peck and Judge Reynolds, of Potter county. Still more flimsey does this alleged rea son appear when tho fact is noted that not a single county in tho conference, at the close of its sessions, was represented by all of the original conforrees. ! The attempt to make it appear that tho j nomination of Mr. Hopkins was without: the concurrence or sanction of Mr. Lewis! and Mr. Mann, is clearly without author-! ity from those gentlemen. Immediately I upon the nomination of Mr. Hopkins they J eotared the room where the final session I waB held, and not only by no word or ' died of theirs did they give intimation i that the nomination of Mr. Hopkins was not fairly and honestly made, but Mr. Lewis addressed the conference pledging his hearty support and that of Potter ocunty to the nominee. That a recess of ten minutes was not granted was more accidental than intentional;-none of tho Lycoming conferrees voted against it,-and it was not such a serious matter as to justify tho Tioga county oonferrees in their action. The third and fourth reasons are not deemed worthy of serious reply. It is well known that both Mr, Nilcs and his conferrees, as well ae other friends, made vigorous efforts to seouro tho assistance and votes of fcthe gentlemen arriving that night from Potter county, notwithstanding they came on the midnight train, and did not walk from tho depot to the hotel. Had he secured their votes it is also well known that the Lycoming oon-ferreeB would have made his nomination. Who supposes that had such been the case the Tioga conferrees would have refused to make Mr. Wiles' nomination unanimous? Yet every one of their pretended reasons for their extraordinary action would havo existed. The conference was repeatedly appealed to, by tho Tioga couferreea, to noraiuato Mr. Niles upon the pretentions that it was necessary iu order to etrongbten tho State and Legislative tickets, and above all to secure a Republican CougreBsmau. What becomes of pretensions in view of their subsequent efforts to elect tho Democratic candidates We cannotbelievothat the loyal Republicans of Tioga county will bo swerved from their duty by any such ilimsy pretexts or excuses. Ciiaui.es W, Scott, Elias Deemek, B. S. Benti.y, Conferrees Irom Lycoming county. The Tobacco Tariff in DatiK'-r. Tho following from tho York Dispatrh is equally applicable to Clinton couuty and Bhould be read and carefully cousidor ed by every farmer. Tobacco growing is ouo of the leading branches of Cliuton county farming, and uuder the protective tariff will bo largely increased and made more remunerative to the farmers. The Dispatch say York county will reap more benefit from the McKinley Tariff bill than any othor agricultural couuty in the Uni ted States, It protects our farmers more than any measure of legislation that ever was passed by Congress. It has already sent up the price of tobacoo, aud the prices of farms and produce are bound to follow, New York tobacoo importers aud Free Traders have subscribed largn sums of money to Bend into Pennsylvania to defeat Delamater, in the hope of breaking down this tariff here in this great tariff State, Oue hundred thousand dollars of this money passed through a Philadelphia bank last week, and two hundred thousand dollars more are to follow. This issuo has outgrown tho contest between Delamater and Pattibou. It is no longer confined to State lines. The eutire uation is looking to Pennsylvania as the battleground between Protection and Free Trade. This is to bo a life and death struggle. If Pennsylvania falters or hesitates, the Pennsylvania idea-Protection to American industries-will bo blotted from our National polioy. People of York county, this ib a light for your firesides. Tho Coolie labor of the island of Sumatra is to-day shut out from competition with you because of the McKinley bill. A Democratic Governor, a Democratic Congress, would be bound to be followed by a Democratic President iu 1892. The importers and Free Traders here, and their English allies, understand this-hence tho desperate energy and desperate methods they are employing. Look at your interests as you never looked to them before. Bring out the last votor, let uo man stay at home next Tuesday. This struggle in Pennsylvania will be one of the moat hotly contested in the history of our Republican politics. The whole contest is being oonduoted from New York city, and is aimed at Pennsylvania's industries. Remember, not only to go to the polls yourself, but also take your neighbors. General Haatiugg to His Fiieude. From theScranton Republican. The Democrat who are lavishing their hypocritical praises on General Hastings received a shower of cold water down their backs tho other evening at the hands of General Hasttugs himself, when in aspeeoh he said, "I can sec no good reason why the enemies of Senator Delamater should waste sorrow ou accouutof my defeat for the nomination for Governor. I am satisfied, and had tho candidacy been conferred upon me by tho State Convention tho opponents of the Republican party would doubtless have said as mean and untruthful things of me as they have of Senator Delamater." That is tho exact truth. No Republican candidate for a State office ever escapes the mud batteries of the opposition, and especially is this truo of Republican candidates for Governor. Curtin, Geary, Ilaitranft, Hoyt and Beaver all passed through tho same ordeal. Had General Hastings, or Mr. Stone, or Major Montooth received tho nomination for Governor this year the opposition would at once havo alleged that Senator Delamater, tho choice of his party, had been cheated out of the nomination, betrayed and sold out by thoao who had pretended to be his frieuds, and the successful man would havebeou assailed just the same aB Senator Delamater has. General Hastings understands this, and very properly he spits upon the hypocritical condolences of those who would havo traduced him the same as they havo Delamater had ho bcou successful in the convention. Tbe Rnpublicau State ticket has no more'earnee t. oi whole-hearted supporter than Gone; .it Hastings. That he was disappointed in not being nomiuatod for Governor may bo and is admitted, hue ho is not one of the narrow-gauge sulking Republicans who nurse personal disappointments aud play hit} the hands of the common enemy to gratify a spirit of revenge As ho said to a Doylestown aud-dienco a short time ago: "If thoro is a Ropublioau in Bucks oounty who feels disappointed because I am not the candidate for Governor, the best way to show his friendship for mo is by doing just as I am doing- t.'.ke oft his coat aud do everything that, lie.1) in hiH power to elect Senator Delamale! aud the whole Ropublioau ticket."

Those who veutured out were well rewarded, and it is to be regretted that the engagement was for ouo night only. "Casey's Troubles" is a very laughable comedy. Mr. Kcloy, who assumed tho character of "Casoy," is a comediau of no mean parta. Tbere is a clear cut humor in his works that reminds one very much of Air. Jefferson. Ho captured the audience early in the evening and held its interests throughout. During the evening Miss Kennedy, quite a clever soabrette, enacted several roles, all different and difficult parts. Her siugtug and danoiug were superior and added much to the enjoyment of tho play, Tlio support for the most part was capable and Batisfaotory. The play abounds iu novel features, and altogether is quite a laughable and entertaining production.-Indianapolis (Ind). Sentinel Oct. 31, 1889. Improving an Invention.

Th9 Sleamur Vizuaja, Kuu Uuwu by a Coal Schoouur- itoth Vesaels go to the ttotcom- The Number of 1'nsecDgers Not Known -You Are Invited-A little Boy Frozen to Death, New York, Oct. 31.-The Bteamer Humbolt, which arrived to-day from Brazil, reports that tho Spanish steamer Vizcaya, which sailed from here yesterday afternooD, when off Barnegat was run into by au unknown schooner and the captain and sixty-one passengers were lost. Both vessels sunk. The fitto of the captain and crew of the schooner is unknown, A chief officer, second officer, Burgeon, one engineer and eight of tho crew were picked up. The Vizoaya was bound for Havana, Santiago, De Cuba, Colon and other Central American ports, with a general cargo of merchandise. Tho captain was Francisco Cunill, one of the most experienced and trusted officers of the company. The other officers were: First offioer, Felix Hazas; second officer, Francieco Covas, third officer, name not known, purser, Senor Deza, doctor, Valdesic, chief engineer, Francisco Zarra, second engineer, Agnezla. The vessel was (staunch and seaworthy, and had been entirely renovated and new cabins placed in her a short time ago. The following is a list of the passengers: Juan Pedro, M. A. Calvoi, wife, son aud maid, Mr. Burr and three children, Mr. A. Ruiz, Joseph Aoaibia, Ramon Alvaaez, Juan F. Hedman, Oscar Island, Ligui Pellion, Joseph Magarica. Juan Pedro was a member of the firm and a Spanish millionaire. He was born in Spain, and was bound for Havana to look after the iuterests of the steamship company. The vessel in colliBion with the steamship Vizcaya was the sohooner Cornelius Havgreaves, from Philadelphia for Fall River, with coal. Ten men from the schooner, aud seven from the steamer were lauded at Lewes, Dolaware, this evening. The body of a woman supposed to be tbe stewardess of the steamer was also-landed there. From the second officer ssfcie facts were obtajned. He was standing on the upper deck uuder the bridge when- the collision occurred. He said the steamer's lights were burning all right, and the watch on deok at their posts. He did not see the schooner until the first officer on the bridge rang the bell to stop. Ac the time he rang to stop.sald Second Officer Covas, Captain Cunnill had just come from supper, aud was going upon the bridge. "Before we had time to movo the schooner struck us, and as far I could see instantly, killing Captain Cunnill. Our headway carried us along, and tho bowsprit knocked down the bridge house and rigging. I was covered by debris, and was badly cut on the head and Bide of my neck. . It got out of the tangle and about the time the water commenced to run over the decks, and then I took to the rigging with the others. We stayed thero from 9 o'clock in the evening until Bvo tho next morning, and wero completely exhausted when taken off- by the crew of the Humbold." OaeetloiiS far Democrats. Tho following communication appeared in tbo Renovo AVics yesterday: Editgii News:-The machine Demo-, crats finding themselves beaten at nearly every point iu the aontest for Associate Judge, are appealing to Demoorats to stand by the "ring" candidate and are asking "Why should you vote for George R. McCrea for Associate Judge." As a Democrat, . as doe who has stood by tho nominees of my party year after year-permit me through your paper to say why I shall oast my ballot for Mr. McCrea. First,-Mr. McCrea is a gentleman; he is intelligent; he is honest. Now what does tho office of Associate Judge require more thau these three things which Mr. McCrea possesses? Tho wise exercise of his Judicial power. As a citizen who has observed tho course pursued by Mr. McCrea since ho has beeu appointed to tho position he so ably tills, I find he has exercised bis intelligence aud has acted in a manner that commends him to all lovers of fair play and justice. Second.-As a man his character is above reproach. Ho is not oue who will be found ou tho side of corrupt practices of "deals," or one who will hesitate to bring to the attention of the people anything that is d^trimeutal to their interest. As fine a man who can he trusted to fill tho office to which we Democrats will elect him, and Third.-Why should the Judicial bench bo placed at.tho disposal ol politicians? Why should it bo run by "a machine" who will take advantago of any and every opportunity to get even with tbe ones who oppose their mighty will? Why do the} "ring" hwker so much after it? It is not hard to guess, aud if wo but look upou recent events as a fair answer, we will not hesitate to cast our ballots for George R. McCrea and reform. To elect Mr. McCrea it will require Democratic votes.  In this city we will t'i^hLlii^ the TUhvt. Tho Democratic leaders aud bosees have been trying ever since the Cotinty Convention last August to make it appear that there was no opposition to the ticket nominated by tho con veil tiou, if. the leaders of tho Democratic party really believed io their own minds that there was no opposition to their ticket, they are of a different opinion to-day, for the. (intttipa, bAB been definitely settled by tbe large distribution of a circular lotter among the Democratic voters in which tbey "are urged, to rise in their might, t&how their self-respect and down the ring. The circular letter is signed "By the Committee." The following is a copy of the lett�r: TO THE HONEST VOTERS OF CUNTON COUNTY f Renovo, Pa., Oct. 29,1890. The political bosses of our county have again joined hands, and they' want the voters to go to tbe polls on election day and help them to carry out tho deal they made last August.    / Democrats of Clinton county, can we, will we, with a particle of self respect, allow ourselves to be dragged-first oneway and then another by this, gang, who are at ono election bolting tha ticket, catting each others throats and defeating the Democratic nominees, and at the. next .combining, in order that they may feed their relatives and political heelers in office at the expense of the tax-payers, who" never held office and never "want to? , j- There are enough, self-respecting citizens in this oounty, if they will 'only go the polls on Tuesday, November 4th, to put an end to this state of affairs; that makes our county a laughing stock for the surrounding counties. '   '" * Are we always expected'to sink our self-respect, in order that the Smiths, Browns, Mayer, Quigglea and their,:relatives may be kept in -office? The. people of this couoty are disgusted .with the display of cheek, egotism and hypoorasy, and should embrace this opportunity -to wipe out those political leeches.   '. Dt your duty land vote !

The Sheriff's office-has beon conducted in a highly satisfactory manner by a Republican official during the past three years and if you want to continue this state of affairs elect Andrew H.

The Republican candidate fills all these requirements and shoald be elected by a good majority. Vote for Bett.
