   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - November 7, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                NINTH YEAK-NO. 211. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 7, 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINsLoB BROTHERS---rUBLISIIKKS CURRENT  COMMENT. Piiilm>em*ijta Inquirer: Tom Reed is about tho only Republican elected to the next Congress, but ho is a whole party ju h\mt>0\f. Tiikke was a big surprise party in this State ou tho 4cb iust., and Republicans and Democrats are both surprised at the result of that day's work. Tim is not tuo first tttno the people have takgn tho government out of the Republicans and given it to the Democrats. They have always given it back heretofore, aud they will do so lais time, Since the returns have ooine in it appears that the people voted against Senator l>-iay aod not Senator I)*ilaroater, although tbo latter was defeated for Governor. It remains to be seen how the former will be affected by Dtilamnter's defeat. FiieeTradB Kuglaud sends congratulations to the Uemooratio party and te-joiceth greatly at the defeat of the Repub licaus, and especially at tho rttiretuont of Maj. McKinley to private lifo. If tho Democrats can stand it the Republicans will not complain. Had Judge McCrea uot met witL that runaway aooident, a few days before election, he would certainly have been elected. The majority in the county against him is only 10G. He has great reason to feel bigbly gratified, however, at the magnificent vote he received in Renovo, which will ataud forever as a monument to his popularity at homo. The grip of the Lock Haven "bosses" od the Democratic party in Clinton county is remarkable. They issue their orders and tbo rank and file of the party meekly obey them. Talk about "Quay bossisnj ."' Tho junior Senator should come to Lock Haven if ho wants a few pointers on the subject. TnE Republicans had the Democrats of Clinton county pretty well frighteucd at the outlook for their county ticket, and It j was generally expected at least a portion of it would be defeated. The Pattison cyolone, helped to pulled the whole county tioket through by safe majorities. The Republicans bad strong; candidates to fight, who were backed by the powerful influence of the Lock Haven Democratic bosses. If we must have Democratic officials in Clinton county we are glad to say that tho gentlemen ek'cttd command the esteem and confidence of the people, aud we have every reason to believe that they will make faithful and honorable officials. Our county will be represented at Harris-burg by Hon. J. C. Quiggle, a gentlomau of education and ability, and cue who will no doubt perform bis duties in suoh a manner as to reflect credit upon himself and Clinton county. Co or rem M�JorltIen for Sixteen Ytar�. Mew York Press. There has been an unbroken Hue of Democratic Houses of Representatives since 1874, except in 1880 and 1888, so that the election of a Democratic House at this time is neither an astonishing nor an astounding event. In 1874 the country was surprised, but in 1890 it is merely a repetition of the invariable "off year" rale for sixteen years. The loss of the House in 1S74 did not prevent the election of a Republican President in 1870, although the contest was severe and close. Tho Democratic house of 1S73 made possible the lie-publican victory of 1880. The Democratic House eleoted in 1882 bad a plurality of of 81. In the light of present knowledge of how Mr. Blaine was counted out in thin city in 1884, the precedent continuod to hold good then, but was broken by fraud It was most assuredly the election aod proceedings of the Democratic Congress in 188G which swept the Republican party back into power in every branch of government in 1888, and if history repeats itself, the Democratic House now elected will be tho means of briuging about a Republican victory in 1803. The policy of the government cannot be changed. A Republican President aod a Republican Senate stand in the way of any measures of fr�o trade which tbo Democrats in their elation might be tempted to pass, and long before 1802 tho McKinley bill will have proven its merits in practical operation, so that the voterB of Ibe country will look back in wonder at what they did in 1800. Temperance Adtlrens. Rev. J. E. Weeks willdoliver an address on temperance to-night in the Evangelical Church aud not on Sunday night as erroneously stated yesterday. The admission will be free.

CONGRESSMAN-ELECT A. C. HOPKINS. OF THE SIXTEENTH DISTRICT. AN ovation to a. c. hopkins. The Next Congressman From Thl* intrit*t Concr�tulnted by Ilia Many Friend*. The citizens of Lock Havou gave Hun. A. C. Hopkins an ovation last uight which must havo been gratifying to him, coming as it did from his friends and neighbors irrespective of party, all of whom felt proud of tho honor which had been con ferred upon their distinguished fellow citizen and their county whom he represents. The Mill Hall band furnished tho serenade and while the band played crowds of citizens gathered in front of Mr. Hopkins' residence and filled his house, all eager to grasp the hand of tho Congressman-elect. Mr. Hopkins bore his honors modestly and had a kindly greeting for each one of his neighbors as they met him. A number of gentlemen wore present from Williamsport, including Messrs. C. W. Scott J. B. Dwyer and Emerson Collins. After the baud had played several pieces there wero loud calls for a speech from Mr. Hopkins to which he responded in a few brief but oxjirc^sivo remarks, which called forth loud applause. Messrs. C, W. Scott, Eraersou Collins, J, B. G. Kinsloe and Johu 11, Myers, wero called for by tbo enthusiastic crowd and each responded briefly. While the speaking was progressing a cannon was being fired in the rear of the Fallon House. Tho ovation was simply an expression of the feeling of the people, who thus gave Mr. Hopkins to understand that they wero proud of tbo honor bestowed" upon him E^y the voters of tho Sixteenth  ubiican� are Plenty.

Geologist Georgo Armstrong is confined to his house by illness. Mrs. S. E. Quiggle is visiting in Renovo as tho guest of hor brother, Mr. Cromley. Shorifl-oleot Everhart was in the city last evening, receiving the congratulation* of his fricuds on his election. J. V, Dwyer, of the Williamsport Republican, came up last night to pay his respect* to Congressman Hopkins. Mrs. Wm. N. Allison, Jr., of Nittany Valley, is seriously ill aud but slight hopes are entertained of hor recovery. Aaron Best, of Atchinson, Kan., son of John Best, is visiting friends in Clinton county.   Ho left Salona thirty years ago. Henry Burns, of Oregon, a former resident of Clinton county, was the gnest last night of Mr. and Mrs. J. N. Gctz, Water street. Dr. Thomas Kean, Veterinary surgeon, is at Kouovo to-day in response to a telegram Stating that his professional services were needed. Hon. Georgo H. MoCrca was able to oomo to tho city yesterday to discharge his official duty at the final count of the vote of tho county but ha is not yet fully recovered from his injuries. What General Merrill Saytt. Tho Philadelphia I'.-m yesterday gave the opinion!* ol a number of prominent Republicans on Delamater's defeat and among others that of General Jesse Merrill, of this city, which was as follows: I have no doubt our defeat was caused by the dissatisfaction engendered by un-warrantable mterfereuco in tho primary elections for delegates to the Gubernatorial Convention by persons who favored Senator Delaiuater, aud who are supposed to be in authority in the party, sod by allowing the bold, serious and unwarranted ehargos against him to he made aod reiterated for so long a time without a public and positive denial of their truth- A party oui*t havo leaders and organization, but tho body of the party think it is well enough for the leaders to take command after the nominations are made, and eon-duct tho campaign for votes after the nominees, have been designated by tho people. Senator Quay must auBwer tho protest of tho great majority of tho party. Suoh a dofeat cannot chaugo tho future of Senator (�uay. It will no doubt chacga his mode of procedure, and if he will take a more bumble place, his wonderful political acumen will not be lost to the party. The pcopio will soon lire of a retro-active Democratic party, whose stock in trade will bo a constant and continued agitation of the tariff question to suit importers and foreigners, aud will return tho Republicans to power.

A Khiuty-Tvvo found llead Leftda to itD In-vcetment of 8100,000 and a Wudding. From the San Francisco Chronicle. Romance and the rose go band in band, aud tho dainty violt-t and the modest Hly have often opened the portals of love, but it has boon left to California to produoe the only oabbage that ever led to a real romance that wound up in a wedding. Eighteen months ago, acoordiug to the unquestionable statement of Granville W. Alexander, a grain merchant of this city, there stood in front of the door of one of San Francisc/s real estate dealers a cabbage from San Bernardino county weighing ninety two pouuds, "aud said tc be the largest ever rained. While thia production of California's greatness was on exhibition the Oregon express landed from England two Britons, so fresh from their native Boil that tbey walked along the dry and dusty streets with surtouts down to their ankles and their trousers rolled up to meet their coats. They were bound for Australia. Passing along they espied the wonderful oabbage. Both men stopped short. Up went two singlo eyeglasses. "By Jove, old boy, but that's a doosedly largo cabbage, doncherkuow." 'Doosedly largo," replied the second surprised son of Albion, and then they both went in and inquired of the real estate man where it was grown. Both men were wealthy. Both men were cousins, and while unknown to them tho busy hand of fato was now at work, it only seemed to the curiosity seekers that in deciding that life would be misspent unless they saw the land upon which this cabbage grew, that they were only obeying the idlo whim of idle gentlemen in going to San Bernardino to do so. And so they wont. J Englishmen at* a rule are not garrulous, 1 and these two friends were no exception, i Once in San Bernardino they were directed to the farm where tho cabbage grew. Tbey remained two weeks. At the end of that time one of them said to the rancher: (I waut so much of your land in a certain section.   How much is it worth?" "Fonr hundred thousand dollars." It was paid for.   The other friend said to tho rancher: 'Your daughter is very beautiful, and I love her.   I want to make her my wife." Two months ago there was a wedding at tho ranch. Thoro were a number of people present, friends of the family, and the groom threw aside his taciturnity long ' enough at the supper table to tell how the big oabbage had led to his happiness. "Keddy'a Luck" Lait NlRbt. No better evidence of Miss Rhoades* capability as an artist and her power to please is needed than the simple fact that for four nights has the Opera House been crowded with delighted audiences, and that in the midst of one of the warmest and most exciting political contests that has evor taken place in the county. 'Reddy'a Luck'' was the bill last night and all wo have to say is it wae put on in better shape that ever before in this city. To-night "Uncle Dau'l, a Messenger from Jarvis Section," in four acts.

Tbo entertainment was grand, especially tho Tyrolese Warbler aud the original Cat song. They were well rendered, aud alone worth the price of admissiau."

Philadelphia U�<1 a Bad liUzs Lm�t MkM, Resulting In the Instruction �f Four b actory ilulUUngt aud the Narrow Kb-eape of Othera-One of Buffalo'* Largest Klevatom F�Ug a l'rey to tbe Flames. Ihuukee, Cal., Nov. 6.-A most disastrous fire broke out hero shortly after midnight, aud as the wind was blowing a hurricane, tho flames werB soon beyond control. The tire was started in the rear of Stoll's brewery hy an iucendiary. A man was seen running away from that place soon aftor the flames broke out. The brewery aud half a dozon other buildings wero soon burning, aud the live was momentarily caWhiug on the roofs and porches of the other buildings a block distant. The citizens fought the tUmes with great determination, and the fire train arrived from Summit and gave assistance, but their efforts were of no avail. East Main street was soon in ashes, and all tbe frame buildings on Front street were burning. Nearly forty buildings, including the entire business portion of the town, had been destroyed by two o'olook this morning, aud the residence portion seemed doomed. A light ano�* wwas falling, but it had no effect on the flames. Last Chanoe saloon, Richardson Brothers' office, Moody's stable, Humphrey'a butcher shop, Truckee Lumber Company's store, the jail, and the Red Light saloon are among the places burned. PuiLADELFfnA, Nov. 0.-Fire to-night in tho lower seotion of this city destroyed four buildings and caused an estimated loss of $185,000. The fUmes started in the coopor shop of the Philadelphia Cooperage Company, Nos. 9G7, 969 and 971 Otsego street, spread to a large three story brick building just fitted up as a soap factory by P. C. TomsSn, on Swanson ,steeett above Washington avenue, desXroyiDg tb\s and adjoining buildings used as a spice mill by Mr. Tomson, The large one story storage warehouse corner of Swanson street and Washington avenue, owned by the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, was destroyed, together with its contents. The Snow-den Hotel, adjoining the warehouse, was badly scorched, and a nnmber of dwelling houses owned by Mr. Tomson were more or less damaged by fire and water. Buffalo, Nov. 6.-At 2 o'clock tbiB morning fire was discovered in the C. J* Wells elevator, corner of Ohio and Indiana streets. The flames started in the east tower of the elevator from an explosion wbieb was loud enough to wake up hundreds of people who live in the boarding houses and tenements in the vicinity. In the shortest time possible the various boats which lay alongside the elevator were gotten out of the way and nono suffered. About twenty minutes after the flames had started, the walls began to fall on all sides. On tho north were four Lackawanna freight oars, loaded. These were buried in tbe debris. Mugridge's bakery, on the corner of Elk and Illinois streets, was on fire, but was saved. The heat was intense, driving the firemen away from the Ohio streot side of the burning elevator. Every few minutes pieces of corrugated iron covering of the elevator wonld become detached from the structure and come sailing down, several times narrowly missing groups of firemen. After it was seen that it was a hopeless task to try to save the Wells elevator, the main efForts of the firemen were directed towards preventing the (lames from getting into the big Wilkeson elevator. At one time it was feared the heat would blow outthe top of the Wilke sou. When the flames from the Wells were at their height, tbe beat was very intense, so much so that it caused a part of tbo side of the Marino elevator across the rivor opposite tho Wells to blow out, a large portion of tho flaxseed stored in it falling out into the driver. Tho flames were confiucd to the Welts elevator, which is entirely destroyed. The total loss is figured at $250,000, of which 100,000 is on the building and $150,000 on the grain. The total insurance on the building is *90,000. The grain, 299,000 bushels, was fully insurod. FIKE AT DENYEIt. Denver, Cot., Nov. (t.-Fire broke out in tbe rear of M. L. Todd's lumber yard, on Ninth and Laramie Btreets, at 13 o'clock last night, and notwithstanding the fire department, whloh was promptly ou hand iu response to two alarms, the flames had spread nearly all over the yard boforo tho water could bo turned on. The fumes quickly passed to the St. Elmo Hotel, Meyers Liquor Company and Clear's drug store, with a uumperof small residences ju?t across the alley, were given up to the flames, while the firemen wero j doing all iu their power to keep the fiames from jumping across Laramie street, where was Inciit-sd a number of large busi-ntss blocks. Tbe entire block between Ninth and Touth streets and Laramie and Market were seething masses of flamo,but is under uontrol, unless a strong wind comes up. One unknown man was burned to dr*atb iu the hotel, and his charred remains nuw tie at the Coroner's uillcc. It is reported that another mau and two children were caaght iu the same buikluig and destroyed. Tho cause of tho fire is not known. The Io68 cauuot be accurately estimated, but will probably be over $10,000. An Explosion of Fire Works. There was a display of fire works last night in front of the residence of Hou. A. C. Hopkins, which was not down on tho program. Messrs. Harry Hall, William Reed, R. 1). Peck and Harry Welliver wero ou the second story porch in front of the house and had charge of the fire works. In some way fire fell among tbe stock which they had iu reserve aud a general discharge began. Rockets, Roman candles, and chasers flow in all directions creating a panic in the crowd on the street. For a while it seemed as though the result might be disastrous, and the house wonld take fire. Fortunately no one was injured and a pail of water judiciously applied by Captain McCliutook extinguished..the blaze started at one place. One of tbe rockets Uow across tbe street and passed through a panel in the door of a house. The situation of the men who were in tbe midst of the fire aud smoke was not a desirable one but they stood their ground manfully. He Bad no Hnnd in the Killlot^ From the Chicago Tribune. A thin, nervous-looking man stepped up to the pastor as tbe latter came down from the pulpit: "You have bad a good deal to say this morning,'' be observed about a feller that killed a man named Able." "Certainly," replied ihe pastor. The Sin of Cain"' was the subject of my discourse." "I wish you'd do mo a favor nest Sunday," said the thin man iu some excitement, "to tell the' folks thai the man you was talking about this morning ain't no relation to the Kane that keeps thclWory stable down by Uio grist mill. I don't want any of my friends to think that I had a hand in the killin'. That's all.  Good-day." Mc*�<1y Cats Off a Tedious Prayer. From the Buffalo Courier. A man who oan pray fervently and throw his soul into his words is pretty sure to find favor in the eyes of Evangelist Moody, yet liko all good men be knows when he has prayers enough. The other evening, in the short devotional service which follows the Bible lecture, some one in the rear of the platform began a rambling, incoherent offering, te which Mr. Moody graciously kneeled as long as his patience lasted. "Will tbe audience sing the Doxology and be dismissed?"!^ asked at last, and in the burst of song which followed tho ending of the prayer, if it had an ending, was lost. Ho Knew * Hons. From the Lewistou Journal. Some men down in Belfast thought to puzzle a local jocky by bringing out two sorry looking equines, one considerably larger than tho other, and asking him which was '.he better one. But he was not caught napping. He looked each carefully over, examining the feet of each, and then rendered* judgment as follows: "One's worth just as much as t'other." "How's that?" asked the crowd. "Well, the big one has got more hide and bones than the smaller one, but tbe latter has got the best shoes on, which makes it about an even thing." The Cedar Hill Cemetery Company has purchased of Furst Brothers, several acres of land adjoiniug the cemetery which has already been enclosed by a fence; and will soon be laid out in burial lots. A house will shortly be built as a residence for tbe sexton. Tho Cedar Hill Cemetery is one of the finest in the county, and is kept in excellent condition. Will It lie Bnilt? In a recent issue of the Iron Age it was stated that a large tin plate mill which would give employment to several hundred hands, would bo built at some point between Bellefonte and Harrisburg. Will the mill ba built now in view of the fact that the repeal of th� tariff bill will be agaitatcd strongly by the next Congress? Tho Prisoner ldentill9d.' Sheriff Curtis, of Brooke county, Va., arrived in this city last night-aud after seeing the Italian arrested here on suspicious of having committed a murder in his county, thinks he is tho man who is wanted. He will take the Italian back with him this evening. The gul who smiled upon you in the breakers will demand an introduction on the avenue. Formalities are waived on tho seashore.
