Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - November 12, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YE AK-HO. 218. LOCK HAVEN, PA., WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 12. 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINSLOK BROTHERS---PUBLISHERS current comment. Chestnuts were Gve oeuts a quart higher on last Saturday than the week before. The McKinley bill is, nf oourse, responsi-ble for this big advance. The President's Tbaukstfiviug proclamation is out and November 27 is the data. Wo Republicans oan be thankful that so many of us are alive and that the politioal cyclone was uo worse. Up to date the only man in Clinton oouhty that talks of contesting the seat In Congress of the Hon. A. C. Hopkins is Ex-Senator 8. Riohard Peale. "Can the wish be father tj the thought," that Sir Richard should engage in suoh idle talk ? Emikent engineers say it will' take twenty years to complete the Panama Canal. Meanwhile the Nicaragua Canal will have been fifteen years in operation, _and tbe American continents will have no use for tbe Panama ditcb. Those who speak so loudly about the great Democratic victory in Pennsylvania will do well t remember that Secretary Stewart's majority is IS, 120, and Lieutenant Governor Watres' majority 17,258. Those are very significant facts and fig nrfiB. Ths Lock Haven Democrats propose to oelebrate tbe election of Pattison tomorrow night. If our Democratic friends think it worth while to jubilate over the viotory of one-third of their ticket, why should not the Republicans join in and make tbe thing unanimous by celebrating the eleotion of Watres and Stewart ? A FLURRY IN WALL STREET Another Big Squeeze on the Stock Exchange in Hew York. EXCITEMENT ASD A PANICKY TIME It is a ourioua fact that the Argentine Republic in South America, with a population whioh, perhaps, does not exceed five millions of people, oonsumes more claret wine than any. other country in the world -more than four times as much as the United States and a great deal more than this country and Great Britain oombined. It is nnfortunate that Explorer Stanley and certain of biB associates have taken to hurling aecusationg at each other instead of working harmoniously together | towards tbe sameemd. It Beems there waB iuoompetenoy in some cases and jealousy in others, which have been followed by reoriminattonB that will be a benefit to no one. ^ The communications of P., and S. R. P., in yesterday's Democrat will not tend to create harmony in tbe Democratic ranks of Clinton county. He broadly insinuates that members of bis own party were bribed at tbe recent election and others are called "polly-wants-a-cracker-Demoorats." How oan our Ex-Senator friend be so oruel iu his declining years ? Age should mellow and soften his feelings towards his fellowmao. ' According to Democratic newspapers it is perfectly proper for Republicans all over this Republican state to cast a ballot for Pattison and for Republicans in tne Sixteenth CongreBBional District, which ia also Republican, to use every means in their power to defeat tbelr candidate for Congress, but it is a great criraa for Democrats to vote fur a Republican Congressman. C'onaistenoy thou art a jewel, bnt no one thinks of looking for consistency in a Demooratio organ. Council MteUnj To-Sight An adjourned meeting of City Conncil will be held to-night at which the report of the committee on granting privileges to the new electric light oompany, will be received. It is understood that tbe committee will report in favor of granting the privileges aBked for subject to such con ditions as oouuoil may name. There seems to be no doubt but the city iB sood to have another eleotric light plant in successful operation. Arrested taa Wrong* Man.

Officer Kane went to Williamsport te bring the prisoner to this oity but found the wrong man had been arrested. A Failure.

Several Big Firms Co- Doirn In tbe Crash Decker, Howell & Company Leavlnc Liabilities Amounting to Tan Million, of Dollars-Villard Stocks Figure Largely In tbe Trouble. New Youk, Nov. 11.-The oxcitemoat in Wall street to-day was greater than on any privious day since tbe present deoline began, and while tbe downward movement in the general list was not as large as usual, the unusually heavy drop in Villard stocks made up for the lack of movement in the others. The power of the great combination wbioh iB now making the values for securities in Wall street, was concentrated to-day upon Villard shares, and stocks as a rule would undoubtedly have advanced had it not been for tbe depressing influence of the slump in these shares. The movement undoubtedly winds np the last combina. tiou in Wall street and stocks being well distributed and tbe general business of the oountry in a prosperous condition, so that when the adjustment of existing railroad difficulties has been bronght about and an easier money market assured, which would result from the Gould, Morgan, Kidder, Peabody combination, there will be an improvement in the stook market. actios of the cleabimo hoote. The Clearing House held a meeting tbis afternoon, In order to iBSue loan certificates without limit to help out tbe Bank of North America, the North River Bank and the Mechanics and Traders, the same as they did in 1834, to help ont the Metropolitan Bank. The three banks were short at the Clearing House $1,400,000. It is understood that the certificates issned will be secured by tbe stock of tbe banks and cash. This action of the Clearing House is expected to make money easy and relieve tbe market. tjgly rumors afloat. Rumors of trouble among the banking institutions were current all day, but no one paid much heed to them, thiuking that they were the usual emanations of bear minds. After the olose, however, it was learned tbat three banks, which were members of the New York Clearing Honse Association, were unable to settle the olaims of other banks against them. There was a balance against tbe Bank of North Amerioa of $1,400,000, which it was unable to settle. The other banks were the Noith River and Mechanics and Traders. How the heavy balance was created against the Bank of North America was a puzzle. It was thought that tbe firm of Decker, Howell & Co. bad overdrawn their account to tbat extent, but this oannot be definitely ascertained. assisting the basks. During tbe day the Mechanics and Traders bank made its settlement with the Clearing House all right, and the o^her two banks received assistance and pulled through all right. At the bank of North Amerioa, it was stated that the trouble was direotly due to the account of Decker, Howell & Company and that now that tho account of that firm was closed the hank was in a stronger position than ever. The most important factor in the developments was the scaroity of money. Right up to the close it was in urgent demand at one-half per cent, and lezal interest was oharged on loans equal to 189 per cent, per annum. This fact and the troubles of the banks caused a speoial meeting of the Clearing House Association to be called, and after a long session it was deoided to appoint a oom-mittee of Presidents with authority to issue Clearing Honse loan certificates in order to enable tbe banks to settle the balance between themselves. will-0au9e belief. The certificates will be based on bills receivable, collateral securities, cash assets and the united credit of the banks. The aotion is intended to distribute tbe reserves of the banks cvonly between tho institutions, where one bank is unable to settle its difficulties in cash it will deliver securities and assets to the certificate oom-mittce, and if that committee accepts the securities it will authorize tbe issue of certificates on them. The united aotiou of tho ba'iks is expeotod to restore complete oonlldenco. failures of the day. The failure of Charles M. Whitney was early announoed. Mr. MoCurdy, the counsel for the firm, late in the afternoon said that tho creditors would be paid dollar for dollar, unless the pauic and sales in the exchange so reduced margins as to render tbe margins shorter. Tho assignment is reported of John T. Walker, Son & Co., importers of silks, to., No. 81 Pine street. They are rated by R. G. Dunn & Co. at over $800,000. Tbe firm is composed of John T. Walk- er, John W. Combs, and Joseph Walker. William T, Ryle is tbe assignee. Decker, Howell & Company also failed during tbe day. W. Nelson Cromwell, assignee for the firm, made a statement concerning Us affairs late in the afternoon. The liabilities are about $10,000,000 and assets at the present market prioe largely exceed that sum. Joseph S, Decker seuior member of tbe firm said: C(Our failure is due to the Bimple fact that we could nut get the money to carry o� our business. We bad ample assets but could not realize on tbem. Tbe distress which bas been caused by our failure is not local. It is world wide. The firm of Deoker, Howell & Co., was one of tbe most prominent on the stook exchange. It was identified not only with the Villard stocks but with Standard Oil interests as well, and also oarried atoonnta of the biggest stock operating firm in Chioago.'' After the failnre of the firm was announced tho sales of stock under tbe rule for its amount were made in Edison general electrical stock, whioh forced tbe price down to 95, a decline of 24J points. A large amount of Great Northern preferred, North American, Manitoba, Western Union, Wisconsin Central and Missouri Paciflo was bIbo sold under tbe rnle for the firm. secretary wisdom's opinion. Washisgtox, Nov. 11.-Secretary Win-dom said this afternoon tbat his latest information from Wall street was that the situation ia improving, with indications that the worst is over. He declined to say whether the Treasury department would or would not do anything for tho relief of tbe money market, bnt admitted that he was giving the matter serious con. sideration. TRANMNGS OF A DAY. News of Intense Interest for Our Many Headers to Peruse. THE LATEST LOCAL NEWS BULLETIN, THE KNIGHTS OF LABOR. Mr. Powderlj Desires the Order to Discuss tbe Tariff Question. Dehver, Col., Nov. 11.-Oier 200 delegates to the general assembly of the Knights of Labor were oalled to order today by General Master Workman Powder-ly, who after a few remarks read his annual address. At the ooccluBion of the address the assembly adjourned until tomorrow morning: for tbe purpose of giving the committee on credentials time to prepare their report. So far there are but two contests reported, one from the state assembly of Massachusetts and the other from the state assembly of Florida. In bis report Powderly, after reminding tbe delegates of the fact that on tbe 28th day of next month the order would enter upon its majority as an association, and dwelling upon the growth of tbe organization during these twenty-one years and tbe good accomplished, said: 'For years the most important of a series of questioos that has agitated the people of all nations is that of tariff and free trade. We have not as an order adopted a tariff or anti-tariff clause iu our preamble and I do not advise suo'i a thing now. We should, however, throw open the doors of our assemblies for tbe discussion of this great problem, so that our members may beooms oduoated on tbe basic principles of protection and free trade. While we do not allow the question inside of our sanctuaries, our members are asked every four yearB in the United States and every five years or oftener in Canada to register their votes either io favor or against protection. My recommendation is that on and after tho 1st of January, 1891, it shall be permissible for local assemblies to discuss the question of high tariff and free trade, by putting the question in this shape: "Wbioh will bring the greatest good to the greatest number, high tariff or free trade?' We do not oommit tbe order to either school and yet allow our members to take up for discussion aud agitation that vital question." A lengthy review is made of the New York Central strike, covering practically the same points as were made at the time by tbe leaders of the strike, and giving all correspondence. He strongly advocated the passing of a law securing to both sexes equal rights and the acceptanoo of an invitation from the Farmers' Allianoe to send delegates to their next convention, He also favored co-operation of the Knights of Labor with the various railroad organi. zations in the work of federation.

Reports ware in circulation la this oity last night, that a young lady had been murdered at a lumber camp on Young-womans Creek. The report, as is learned, had no foundation in faot. The story originated in Henovo, where, as the Ifm says, the report was circulated yesterday that the young lady murdered waa a daughter of William Kemerer, of that plaoe. The Neat says: "It was claimed by Mr. Kemerer tbat tbe daughter bad become dissatisfied with her employment and left the oentp, and was followed throngb the woods as she was on her way home and killed. Mr. and Mrs, Kemerer went to North Bsnd, on Day Express, with the avowed Intention of finding ont all about tbe matter and taking charge of the body of tbe murdered girl.

At the Opera Honse. "Casey's Troubles" had a great reception last night. The Opera House was orowded and the performanoe was one continual round of applause. The fun makers were Alfred Keloy aa "Mr. Casey" and Miss Lillian Kennedy In the triple roles of "Betsy Baker," the dress maker's apprentice, "Rita," the street stager, and "Swipes," the bootblack. Keloy made a fine old Irish gentleman and his make-up and witty remarks kept the honse In an aproar. Miss Kennedy is a new star to Lock Haven, bat she never appeared to better advantage. ' She is a alever sou-brette with dauoFog ayes, nimble feet, pretty faoe, sweet voioe, limbs, arms and bands that were the suvy of the ladies and the admiration of the gentlemen. Her aeting last nigtt won golden opinions tbat will Insure a oordial welcome whenever she returns. Tbe support waa good and the scenic effects and costumes la keeping with tbe performance.
