   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - November 8, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                lien in NINTH YEAR-NO- 215. LOCK HAVEN, PA., SATURDAY. NOVEMBER S. 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS K1SSI.OK BROTHEKS - - - PUBLISHERS CURRENT COMMENT. I THE FIRE FIEND AT IT AGAIN Explanations do not cbange results, and it is results tbat count every time. Two Demoorata who will watch each other very cloaely iu tho future are David Bflcuott llill and Robert E. Pattison. Canon Fakkar. has fallen iu with General ^Booth's plan of roeoueing "the submerged classes" of Loudon, and recruits from those in the swim will likely come iu fast now. Good for tho California Republicans. Tbey have trounced the bumptious foe boautifully, and their 10,000 plurality for Governor, with their gain of at least one and probably two Cougreasmeu constitutes an exceedingly refreshing spectacle just about these times. The decision of the Now York courts mikes it clear that Trusts can be suppressed, when they become inimical to the public interests. The Sugar Trust was the largest and wealthiest of all these organizations, but after a prolonged fight in the courts, it dub been deoided it must go out of business. During tho few years of its existence it has alternately raised and depressed prices in its own interest or to the disadvantage of its rivals. Taa Highway "Jommitteo of Philadelphia on Monday made a favorable report on tho ordinance for paving an important street with vitrified bricks. An amendment was offered to substitute Belgian blocks, and this led to a free discussion on tho respective merits of tho two kiuds of material, which developed a strong preponderance of sentiment in favor of the vitrified bricks. Why don't Luck Haven give them a trial ? The Democrat thinks that a majority of 49 for Congressman Hopkins in this district is nothing to brag about. Wo bog to differ with our esteemsd contemporary. Under all the circumstances we think that it is something of which to feel proud. Tho distriot this year gave Pattison a majority greater than Beaver received four years ago. The average Republican ma- j jority is about 1,500 and not 2,500, as the : Democrat states. A fair test this year; would be the vote on Lieutenant Governor, and Watres was defeated by 750 in the district. Now then for Hopkins to suo-ceed by even 49 majority with tho combined opposition of the State and local committees, assisted by a number of dissatisfied Republicans, fighting htm is a fine tribute of his popularity. Furthermore, we doubt very much if either one of tho three other candidates before tbe Republican conference would have succeeded under the existing circumstances 'and we say this with all due respect to the many good qualities possessed by these gentlemen, for they are all good men. Then again, Mr. Elliott, the Democratic candidate, is a Tioga oounty man and is very popular at home. He made a vigorous canvaBS of Tioga county and was assisted by several prominent Republicans. Not withstanding all this Hopkins only ran about GOO behind Del am at er in that county and came out a winner in tbe district after one of the hardest fought political fights on record.   Hurrah for Hopkins I Dancing at Dunnstown. Fifteen couples of young people enjoyed themselves at a social hop given last even* ing by Mr. and Mrs. B. F. McSherry, DdnnstowD. An excellent supper was served and dancing continued until three o'clock this morning. The musio was furnished by D. B. MoCloskey. A Fatal Hotel lire In Which Guests Leap From the Blazing Windows.

Charles Leibcok, of Philadelphia, and Charles Banford, of New Albany, are known to be badly burned. five guests   missino. Another dispatch says: The Are originated in a pantry in the basement of the Rudd House, a handsome modern hotel, which was filled with sleeping guests. The fire had gained considerable headway before it was discovered, and then it rapidly gutted the house. The guests were awakened, and ran into the streets in their night olothing, while many, crazed by fear, jumped from the windows of the hotel. Among these were tiro ladles and a child, both of whom are badly injured. William H. Hahn jumped from a third story window of the Rudd House, fell on bis baok, and is fatally injured. There are five guests of the Rudd House who are missing, and they are believed to have been burned to death while sleeping. SriiXAD of the flames. j Charles Leib^ck, a traveling salesman ! from Philadelphia, and Charles Banford, j of New Albany, had a narrow escape and 1 was badly burned. A high wind was blowing at tho time the fire originated, and after the hotel had been swept away the flames reached the Bank of Commerce building next door, and tbat with the buildings occupied by Marks & Dregan, grocers; and Quicksort & Company, merchant tailors, was soon in ashes. The building on the corner, ocoupied by the Owensboro Messenger with its costly outfit, was the next to be attacked, and in a few minutes it was dettroyed.

That Little Tickling In your throat, whioh makes you oough onoe in a while and keeps you constantly clearing your throat, ariseB from catarrh, and as catarrh is a constitutional disease tho ordinary cough medicines all fail to hit the spot. What you need is a constitutional remedy like Hocd's Sarsaparilla. Many people who have taken this medicine for scrofula, dyspepsia, loss of appetite, and otbor troublss, have been surprised that it should oure tbiB troublesome cough. But to know the actual cause of the cough la to solve the mystery. Many cases of consumption can be traced back to the neglect of some suob slight affection as this. Consumption can be controlled in its early stages, and the effect of Hood's Sarsaparilla in purifying the blood, building up the general health, and expelling the scrofulous taint which Is tho cause of catarrh and consumption, has restored to perfect health many persons on whom this dreaded disease seemed to have a firm hold. The Search Keuewed. The father of Cyrus Swyer, the young man who was drowned at Queen's Run, some time ago, has returned to this city and renewed tho soarch for the body of his son. A close watch m kept on tho river since the ninth day after the accident, but as yet tho remains have not been found. Fears are now entertained thut the body has become entangled with something at the bottom of the stream. Allison................. Itald KiiBiu..............

Henry Cabot Lodge looks upon tho result of the campaign in a philosophical manner. He says in explanation of the cause of the Republican repulses in this state and elsewhere: We have been badly >nd squarely defeated. Local questions, no doubt, affected the election of Governor, for which Mr. Russell made a most vigorous, energetic cauvaBs, but as regards Congressmen, not only here but elsewhere, there has been a general movement against the Republicans. I attribute it wholly to one cause, the passage of the tariff bill just on the eve of a general election, and the skilfully-managed scare about high prices. This scare amounted to a panic, although the vote by which it was expressed was a secret which neither aide discovered in their canvasses, and both canvasses were well made. 'Let me add in this connection tbat I hope there is no disposition among Republicans to blame tho State Committee. Tbe Republican State Committee made a clean, honest fight, appealing to public sentiment and aiming at a full vote to win tbe victory. They did all tbat could be done. No management conld have saved ub, for we were defeated by a public feeling of alarm evoked by tho high-priced panic. 'Time aloue can buow the real effect of the McKiuley hill. The Republican defeat does not alter my viows about it one wbit. I feel now just as I did when I was speaking on the stump. The bill is on trial. 1 think It will be of great value to the general prosperity of tho oountry. If this opinion is well founded, the Republicans will profit by the result, and all tho more from the reaction whioh a defeat ou false grounds always produoes. If the Democrats are right, then we have received the reward of our misdoings somewhat early, that is all. But only time can Bhow whioh party is right as to the bill and an artificial panic about prices shows nothing, however much it may affect votes." poor company with good paper ?" I queried; for an answer he showed me his date book, with dates booked ahead nearly two years; all, with few exceptions, return dates, which convinced me at once that in tbe Theatrical business, as well as any other trade, it does not pay to deceive the public Nym Cryncle. "Uncle DanT" Lost Night. There was another large audience at tbe Opera House last night and the play of "Uncle Dan'l" as presented by the Kittie Rhoades company was well received. Miss Rhoades was at hor best and the supporting company filled their various roles with credit. Mr. H. M. Harkham gave a good representation of *'Uncle Dan'l." He is a talented actor and has done excellent work throughout tho week. Uo is an artist of considerable force and finish. He does not rant and his acting in the most dramatic situations is natural and intense. The matinee this afternoon is well at tended and "Little Lord Fountleroy" cannot help please all present. To-uight the great western drama of ,cCIip" in four acts. The house will doubtless be jam mad and if you think of going and do not care to Bland secure seats in advance. Tho oompaoy play next week in Philipsburg and we trust the same liberal patronage will be accorded them there as recoived in this city. Return Judge* Appointed. .Edward Goldstein of the First ward has been appointed Senatorial Return Judge, and Henry Neener Congressional Return Judge. The Senatorial judges meet at Belief onto next Tuesday and the Congressional judges at Wellsboro on the same date Don't fail to attend the entertainment in Trinity M. E. Church Monday night. "Clip" to-night. NEWS   AND NOTES. A Town Wiped Out. PetersJtuito, Ind., Nov. 7.-A terrible conllagration occurred at Winslow, Pike county, this State, tbia morning. Tho whole town has becu wiped out of existence. Not a house is left ttanding, and four hundred people arc left homeless. There will bo much suffering among the homeless people. C. J. Wens's e'evator in Buffalo, New York, was burned early Thursday morning.  Lobs about $250,000. Only a Rumor. Last night rumors were afloat iu this city that Hon. M, F. Elliott, the defeated Democratic candidate for Congress in this district, was dead. The rumor was without foundation in fact. Mr, Elliott is confined to his house by an attack of eciatio rheumatism hut his illness is not serious, and he will be around again in a few days. The Deceiver'* Lament. I met, tho other evening, a man who is called among actors an "old timer;" he was bemoaning his fate, the world had uwedjiim harshly,and to use a slaugiem.he was in "hard luck" generally. Now this is tho type of actor, or I should say allBged actor, to he seen in drovcB on "the square" every Bummer looking for sympathy and financial aid from his more prosperous brethren.  I hold he is a fraud most glaring, and should not be tolerated.   I listened to his story of how ho brought a "snap" company on the road to gull the "jays," with a leor on his lace as if he was the smartest o( men.   I was speaking afterwaids to manager Ilassenfordor, of tho "Casey's Troubles Co," and asked him if suoh men as this did not tend to ruin Theatrioal business on the road.   He smiled good humoiedly in the negative; "it is thick and hazy weather," ho said, "when you find 'joys' in any pait of this country; as for ruuning good companies, it would surpiif c*you to find how quickly tbey oan tell the bogus from the good. Would you belicvo that w!hcu the bill poster puts your paper on the boards they can tell the standing of the oompaoy at once.  "But couldn't you give them a 1ILACKBU RN ON THE RESULT. Henry M. Stanley and party arrived at New York Thursday on tbe steamship Taetonic. Walter H, Franks, superintendent of Schools in Wilkesbarre, Peon., died suddenly Thursday.   He was 42 years old. The business portion of Truokeo, California, was destroyed by an incendiary fire early yesterday morning. About forty buildings were burned. Loss about �110,-C00; Insurance, $20,000. Congressman Hatch, of Missouri, and Bynum, of Indiana, announce themselves as candidates for tbe Speakership of the House of Representatives. The Nashville American urges Congressman McMillan, of TenncBSCo, and the Macon Telegraph Congressman Blount, of Georgia, for ttia same office. Congressman Hatch's candidacy, aa well as that of Colonsl Crisp, of Georgia, is uudej-stood to be contingent ou the refusal of Cougressmau Mills to ba a candidate. Tho sudden dosing of Hermann's Theatre iu New York ou Wednesday night was followed Thursday by a suit entered by Professor Hermann against Locke & Davis for $25,000 damages for breach of contract. The defendants had leased the theatre for 40 weeks from October 4ch. The Minnie Palmer Opera Companay was playing tho first engagement at the house when it ahut down. Miss Palmer baa also sued defendants for $20, damages, and Bertha Ricci demands $G00 for three weoks salary. Tho loss by tho firo at Now Rochelle, N. Y:, Wednesday, was greater than at first supposed. In Ferguson's building were stored a large quantity of furniture and personal property belonging to Adrian Iseliu, tho Now York banker, who lives in New Rochelle, and Do I a 11 coy Kane aud other wealthy oumnw residents of that place. Amopg theso were eomo valuable Silverware, valued as heir-looms, and a quantity of hric a brae belonging to the Isehu and Kane families. This property, valued at $250,000, waB completely destroyed and can never be replaced. The fire is supposed to have been started by a light carelessly left in a dangerous place in tho cellar. The   Kentucky   Senator Pnyi   It   Means Klalne'i Nomination In 1803. Washington, Nov. 7.-Senator Blackburn, of Kxutuoky, in conversation with a reporter of the Post on tbe result on the election Tuesday, said the Democrats bad won a most extraordinary triumph, aud one had not far to go to find the causes thereof, The Mc Kin ley bill was too extreme for the voters, he said, and they repudiated it at the polls. He attributed the practical solidarity of the Democratic representation ou tbe Fifty-second Congress from the South as an emphatic protest against tbe Lodge Election bill. The measures, one economici the other political, both radical and revolutionary, be said, had been stamped with the seal of popular condemnation. Tbe reporter asked Mr. Blackburn if Mr. Blaine would be the Republican nominee for the Presidency in 1892. He replied, oertainly. From now on no other man would be thought- of. Renovo or Ren ova. The Renovo JSfcwe in answer to a query as to the proper way of spelling Renovo sayfl: "Renovo" is the way custom has sanctioned tbe spoiling of the name of our town. The Philadelphia Times may be an authority on 6ome matters but when it attaches an "a" to Renovo it patronizes^tbe wrong tow el. 1 he mistake in tbe lino at the heading referred to was made by au electrotypiag firm of the same city as the limes. They overlooked the correct spelling of the name at tho right of the out and threw in tho first letter of the alphabet. We regret very much tbat we have given even an indirect endorsement to the erroneous "rendering" of the town's appellation. The error has had its run, however, as we have had an entirely new electrotype of the heading made. In that we will bavo tho terminal letter so plain that none cau deny its identity and confound it with its neighbors. Tbe Newt will then be guiltless of any charge of fickleness in printing the name of Renovo, one of the liveliest towns along the Susquehanna and which deserveB to be spslled right every-time. won the wheelbarrow was to be propelled by Williamson. Pattison won and yesterday Williamson enjoyed the ride in a Greek chariot over tbe route previously agreed upan. When those two boys are grown to manhood they are likely to be leaders In^their respective parties. The Lehigh Can Come. J. A.

The master decides in favor of the Wil-liamsport and North Branoh Company, and the Wllttamsporters are happy in anticipation of tbe Lehigh Valley coming into that city goon over the William* port and North Branch company's tracks. The Cannon Basted. The Democrats at Beech Creek borough, celebrated their victory on Thursday night, and not having a cannon, fired gun powder charges from a blacksmith anvil. The substitute for a oannon bursted and a fragment of iron weighing 22 pounds was thrown a distance of over 175 feet and through the side of a new house owned by Mr. John Waites. There were several persons alongside the building at the time but fortunately no one was hart. 1 .   - , -   mm* ---- Charlei Clearv'a New Trial. The order of court for drawing the names of jurors fur the January term of court calls for the names of eighty traverse jurors for tbe first week of the term commencing January Otb, 1891. Tbe drawiog of so large a number of traverse jurors is au indication tbat the second trial of Charles Clery will come up at tbat time. A Democratic Salute at Washington. Washington, Nov. 7.-A salute of fifty-two guns to celebrate the Democratic victory in securing control of Congress, was fired from a point several squares to the southwest of the President's house this evening. It was intended to fire the salute in the White lot, (immediately south of the President's house), where'previons salutes of this nature have been fired, but Colonel Ernest, Superintendent of Public Buildings and Grounds, positively refused permission for it to be fired from there. He did not tbiuk proper that suoh a salute as the one proposed should be fired nnder the windows of the White HouBe and on property belonging to the whole people. A Team Runt Away. A team of horses which in some way became detached from tho wagon to whioh they had been hitched ran up Main street last nightat a frightful speed. Fortunately no one was run over by them and they were caught near the fire brick works. 1'rtyliiK a Forfeit. William Williamson, jr., and John Young man are two Lock Haven boys who were much interested in the result of the late election. Tho former is a Democrat and the latter a Republican. Before the olection thoy made an agreement to tho effeot that if Pattison was elected Young-man was t) wheel Williamson from the Armory of Company H to Bellefonte avenue and Main street intersection and back to the starting place, and if Dolamater A Rising Cltntonlan.
