Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - November 6, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAK-NO. lilo. LOCK HAVEN, I'A., THUKSDAY. NOVEMJ3EK , 181)0. VHWE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS HINSL.UK BROTUEKS - 1-UliLISlIKltS HUKKAH FOtt HOPKINS. Hurrah for Hopkins, the next Congress roan from the Sixteenth district'. Although his majority is small it must not bo forgotten that be had great odds against him and in view of aU the circumstances ha ceitaiuly deserves much credit for tlx vigorous canvass ho made and the excel lent voto ho polled in too district. Notwithstanding the combined efforts of the Democratic State and local commit tees, assisted by Republican "kickers,' Hopkins made a good run iu Tioga and Potter counties, his vote being about 400 less than Dolaruator in Tioga aud only about 40 in Pottor. Iu Lycomiug and Clinton counties ho ran away ahead of the head of the ticket. The vote Clinton gave hira is something to be proud of. lie car ried every ooucty in the district but Lycoming and hid friends there stood nobly by him, as Elliott, his opponent, fully 600 behind Pattison in that county. Wo add the following editorial comment of the Williamsport Gazette and Bulletin of this morning: The Sixteenth Congressional district barely escaped going down iu the general wreck, the latest returns showing that Mr. Hopkins came out victorious by a very narrow majority. For this result all eredit is duo Clinton county, whose voters so manfully ralliad to the support of the candidate in whoso bands tbey kuew their interests would ba safe. The election of Mr. Hopkins is important to the people of the distriot, even though the next Home will bo Demooratic. Powerful measures were adopted by the Deruocraoy to defeat Mr. Hopkins, hut in their zeal those engaged in tfao work devoted all their energies to Tioga county, and neglected Clinton. Tbo people of the latter county stepped into the breaoh and wrested victory from tho jaws of defeat. In doing this Clinton has covered htimeif with glory as well as saved to the Stato a Republican representative. Mr. Hopkins will make a good Congressman. CURRENT COMMENT. It was a clean Democratic sweep and the Republicans are snowf d ui der in all parts of the country. Pattison got there, but lie wiii feel kind of lonesome with the Legislature aud state officers Republican. Tnn defeat of McKiuley is deplored by all Republicans, but it is nothing for the Democrats to brag over when it is considered that they have a majority o[ over 2,500 in the distriot and only elect their man by about 200. The Democrats will control Congress by a good-sized majority and of course t hey will try and repeal the McKinley tariff bill. As long as Harrison is in the White Hou3o bo free trade bill will ever become a law, but nevertheless the agitation of the question cannot fail to disturb the business interests of the country. The latest returns indicate Pattison'b election for Governor by over 1G,000 majority and the Democrats have good reason for rejoicing over their victory. Tlio Republicans cautakesome comfoit, however, in the lact that "Watres and Stewait, our candidates for Lieutenant Governor and Secretary of Internal Affairs, have run far enough ahead oT Delamater to insure their election. There is some significance in the faot that Watres and Stewart ran ahead of Delamater in nearly every county in the State, their majority in Philadelphia alone being over 11,000 greater than Delamater's. The latter failed to carry bis own county. Oil CD. To the W. C. T. L'. and all interested in the work. Do not fail to be present at the "Joint Session" of the Co. Ex.

New Yokk, Nov. 5.-To an Associated PresB reporter, who asked for an expression of his opinion on tho results of ye&ter day's elections, Ex-Presideut Cleveland to-day said: "I am eslighted. I challenge the right of any man iu tbe country to rejoice more heartily than I over the results of yesterday. My gratification Is that of any American, proud of his fellow coun tryineu, who, though led away for a timo by party prejudices and by blind confidence in ouuning aud aelUsh leaders, could not bo deluded to their ruin. They have dem onstrated that, in dealing with them, it is not safe to calculate that tbey are stupid or heedless of the welfare of their countrymen. "The necessity of tariff reform, with its consequent reduction in the cost of living, and the duty of the Democratic party to advocate it, bas been fully demonstrated hy the action of the people yesterday. Their decision hai been deliberately made, and it is all the more significant because tbey have voted upon their reason and judgment, and because they have proved tfaac corruption is powerleBB as against their convictions. Of course there isnoth-ing for the Demooratic party to do but to push on tbe battle at all times and in all places on tbe lines which they have laid down. That ia, to insiat upon a wise adjustment of tariff taxation, to the reasonable needs of tho Governmeut, as opposed to tbe plan which enriches a favored class at tbo expense of the masses of the people. Until the viotory is won, the quettion of tariff reform will not be settled nor the pledges and professions of the Demooratic party to the people redeemed. Our party has made an honest and earnest fight. It bas planted itself upon disinterested and unselfish devotion to the interests of the people. Its absoluto unity and harmony upou the question of tariff teform shows its quick recognition of true Democratic principles, and its enthusiasm in a cause which involves the popular welfare. Everywhere our people have done magnificently, and the harvest they have gathered has been nttbly earned." i In answer to an inquiry as to his views on tbe operation of the ballot reform law Mr. Cleveland said: "I think there Bhould be no more opposition to the prinoiple of ballot reform. The evidence of its usefulness and benefit to tho people, I regard as conclusive. In some matters of detail the law in our state might, perhaps, be improved. It seems to me it would bo well to obviato the necessity for so many separate ballots, but after all, even tbis or othor similar objections are not vitally important. Tho thing upon which every honeat man Bhould congratulate himself is that we have a lav? which protoots our voters from corruption aud iutimidation, aud is one of thoBo measures of relief, which once adopted will not be surrendered.

It would bo interesting to know how mauy people President Haiiison shook bauds with during his recent tour, and a statement of tbo number shaken hands with by a President during bis wholo term of office would bestartling indeed. Almost overy day, when ho is in Washington, the President comes down into tho East Room of the White House and goes through tbe pump handle act with a throng of people, frequently numbering more than a hundred, and his office each persou that approaches him must have his hand squeezed. When he goes on ajouruey he shakes hands all day and a Hrgo portion of the night, and on tho occasion of a public White House reception be greets warmly and cordially some two or three thousand people whom ho ubvor saw before aud will probably never see again. It is curious bow much pleasure the people who have tbe honor of receiving tho President's shake experience. Each one thinks he or she has made a distinct impression, and it ia tho effort of the President to convey this idea. What miguificeut muscular develop-meut there must boiu a President's right arm'. Leaving out at consideration his band-shaking, he signs his name hundreds and thousands of times each week. Every proclamation, every bill that passed Congress, overy message to Congress, every commission, every executive order, must bear his signature. Tho mere physical requirements of tbo Presidential office are extraordinary. President Harrison shakes hands as easily as he can. His grip ia not muscular, although it is warm. He has not got it down to such a fine point as his predecessor. President Cleveland had evidently studied the subject and adopted tbe shake calculated to involve tbe least possible exertion ou his part. It consisted in holding his hand straight out and permitting tbo person whose turn it was to seize it for a second, when it was resolutely withdrawn. The exertion of squeezing was thus avoided. President Arthur did not relish this part of his duties, aud he shook hands lightly and without enthusiasm. Gen. Garfield went into itbody and soul, and gave each person who came along tbe benefit of a hearty, warm squeeze that always left a favorable impression, and President Hayes did the best ho oould to attain the same end. Gen. Grant, like Gen. Sherman, shook hands with nearly every man, woman and child in tbe United States, but there was a vast difference in the two Generals' methods. Gen. Grant never loved tbe aot, and performed it in perfunctory way, whereas Gen. Sherman always grasps your hand heartily, and as though he loved ko do it. Of alt tbe living Americans of prominence be is the pleasantest to shake hands with.
