PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINMLOE BKOTHEKS---FUBHSHEBS CURRENT COMMENT. TiiEwomsu now have a ohanoo to got. la same political work wUero it will count. Tlie WoiBon's Christian Tea^peranoo Union hcaitily endorses Senator Blair, and appeals to tlie New Hampshire Legislature to re-elect him. Wmi.E the Uank of England and asso-oi.itod bankers in that country are backing up the house of Baring Brothers, the Rothschilds have gone to the rescue of tlio Argentine Kepublie, having pledged the sum of $20,000,000 to guarantee the inter-eat on itsvarlons loans. TuEiiE are a^ few simple rules which those unacquainted with Che use oS gas should bear in mind if they would avoid karm and, it may be, death when they go away from home and lodge in hotels where gas if used. Never blow out the gas. When you have turned it ofl, do not turn it on again. To still furlhor secure your, self let down down the upper sash of one of the windows. That will give egress to all the gas that escapes in case you have neglected the previous precautions recom. mend�d. >r'iTii United States troops quietly being moved into the neighborhood of the turbulent Northwest Indians, and with winter eomiog on, when the Indians rely on the government for provisions, the prospect ol an Indian outbreak is not great. But the exciting possibilities of such an event, extending through the past three or four weeks, have conveyed the distinct warning to the government authories that the Indian is not to he trusted. Steps should be taken during the winter to disarm every Indian on a reservation. The announcement that no less than 2,000 visiting pbysiciani are about to leave Berlin, disappointed in not being able to obtain any of the lymph ufed by Dr. Koch for the treatment of consumption, or even of obtaining interviews with the discoverer, indicates the , tremendous Interest excited by his proclamation. The city is still full of foreign pbysfcians, and the great influx has but begun. Meanwhile, the small supply of lymph on hand, when the discovery waa announced, ie rapidly giving out, and there la much delay in obtaining more, as it is prepared by a slow and difficult operation. The demand will exceed the supply for a long time to come -unless, indeed, the new remedy shall fail, after all, under the test of extended use, and prove to be no better than other alleged cures whose merits have not equalled their advertisements.

WASni.^GTOs, Nov. 21.-Such informa tioo as was received to-day at the War Department was.not reassuripg. In the course of the afternoon the following was received from General Miles: **Tbe number of Indians going from Rosebud agency tc the Pine Ridge agency Is inoreaaing. Reliable advices show that this Mesaiah craze is extending to onr Indians near the mountitin border, and be-between the Sioux nation and the Canadian border." Secretary Proctor carried the dispatch to the White House when be attended the Cabinet meeting, and they formed the subject of discussion at the meeting afterward. General Sehofleld, commanding the army, was in consultation with the Secretary for an hour respecting the condition of Indian affairs. TROOra OllDEnED TO de RE*.Dy. Secretary Proctor says that the suggestion made by General Miles that troops in other divisions, than his own command be gotten in readiness to reinforce, has already been sent to tbe commanding officers of troops as far south as Texas and Ariz^jna, and as far west as California, to prepare their men for immediate movement, if an imergenoy arises. In any vsnt,it is tbe intention of the Department to heavily reinforce the troops in the D.i-kotas during tbe winter, and they will be moved in from other divisions from time to time bo as not to overtax the transportation find supply facilities. In this way it is expected that tbe Department will b, able to mass an overwhelming force of troops at the agencies where the excitement is at its height, so aa to effectually aupprcsa an Indian uprising in the spring time. WHAT AGEST COOrEK SAV8. Acting Indian Commissioner Bell this afternoon received.the following telegram from Special Agent Cooper, at Pine Ridge Agency; Newspaper rcport.i false. Agent Royer is at his post. The Indians are still dancing. The police report that tbiity Rosebud Indians have arrived at this reservation and six hundred or seven hundred more enroute to tbe agency. We hope to settle this Indian craze without bloodshed. All kinds of rumors are in circulation. Will keep the department fully inlormed. Fi.n-E RiDoE Agencv, Nov. 21.-Th� dancing Indians have tbe agency and the surrounding country in a state of terror. The Ghost dances under the lead of Little Wound, Six Feathers and other chiefs, are still going on at Wounded Knee Creek, White Clay and Medicine, and the Indians have their guns strapped to their backs as they dance. Yesterday a large band of Indians left Rosebud ageney and beaded west. It is within tbe bounds of possibility that tbe Daso/ng Indians may consolidate their forces at Wounded Knee, and In that case a fight may be expected at any moment. Medicine Root, the furthest point from the agency where the dancing is going on, is thirty miles away; Wounded Knee is fifteen, and Porcupine twenty-five, ueoarded as quave. General Brooke, who is in command of tbe troops which arrived yesterday, held a long conversation during the day with Indian Agent Royer and Special Indian Agent Cooper. It is probable that with the force at hand no attempt will be made to stop the dancing at present. Both the Indian agents said at the conclusion of tbe interview that the situation was certainly grave. They confirmed the reports of armed Indians dancing at different points, and said that parties of them were probably moving about tbe reservation. Several days win be passed by tbe troops and agents in making a study of all phases of the excitement, but until troops are here in greater forae the reds will not be molested . The wives and children of all the traders and other whites about the agency have loft for the safer points along the railroad, and tbe men here are prepared for the vporst. in an   uolv moou. The last news from Wounded Knee, which came in last night, waa to tbe cDect that the Ghost dances were being held nightly, and that all the Indians collected there were excited, threatening and boisterous. The rumor that the troops were comiu'i was repeated there, and only elicited threats in response. The Indians declared their Messiah was advising tbem and euoonraging them every day, and that Che dances could not be stopped. "If the soldiers come bete," they said, "we will treat tbem tbe way we did tbe agent and bis policemen." A herder who just reached here reporu that several hundred Indiana have congregated secretly nine miles from this place. They are all beav-ily armed, and they are expecting the Rosebud Sioux to join them shortly. The Indians at Lower Brule, a few miles from Chamberlain, are not excited, and the Messiah craze does not appear to have any effect on tbem. The situation of affairs among tbe Sioux Indians, due to the Messiah craze, is believed at tbe Indian office to be greatly exaggerated. The acting commission, er, Mr. Belt, does not believe that tbe Indians entertain hostile'deslgns against tbe whites. the hobrors op tbe ghost dahce. Kansas City, Nov. 21.-Mr*. James A. Finley, wife of ex-Oonnoilman Finley, of this city, now postmaster and post trader at Pine Ridge agency, is in this elty. In speaking of the ghost dances, several of which she has seen, she said: "At last Friday's dance one of the bravr3 was to go into a trance and remain in this condition four days. At the close of this period he was to come to life as a buffalo. He would still have the form of a man, but he would bo a buffalo. They were then to kill the buffalo, and every Indian who did not eat thereof would become a dog. Tbe man who was to turn into a buffalo was TRANSPIRIHGS OF A DAY.

Tbey throw these around during the dance, strew the ground with them and beat their heads against tbem. The agent with bis Indian police cannot control them, and it was necessary to have troops on the ground." Cost of � New Free Brldjee. The new county bridge at Money was opened to the public on Thursday. The Wllliamsport Itepublkan gives the follow, ing descriptiou of tbe diroonaions and cost of tbe new structure. On the first day of May, 1890, tbey entered into an agreement with Dean & Westbrook, contractors and engineers, of New York city, for tbe erection of a suitable bridge and all necessary masonry, complete for tbe sum of �39,500. Tbe old piers butt of massive fragments of rough mountain stone, piled together without mortar, were found to be so badly shattered by tbe flood as to be usele8s,acd wore tberefore discarded, and four new piers erected upon tbe old foundation, be. ginning at low water Boark, and rising twenty-seven feet above with tbe following general dimensions: Twenty eight feet long at tbe bottom, ttventy-two feet long at the top, resting upon a footing courdO two feet in thickness and extending one foot clear all the way outside the pier. The thickness of the pier Is seven feet at tbe base and five feet at tbe top, surmounted by massive stone bridge seats extending six inches over the face line of tbe upright wall. Tbe ice breaker has a hatter of six feet iu the total height, and the sides of the pier a half inch to the foot. The piers are built of Clearfield county sandstonb cut in blocks two feet in Chick nees, with headers and stretchers over three feet in length, all laid in regular courses in hydraulic cement and well grouted within. The old abutments have been thoroughly repaired with dressed stone laid in cement and all tbe joints of both old and new work pointed up in a ucat and skillful manner. The bridge oompriaes five aepiiatn spans, two of 208 feet each in length, two of 184 eaob, and oLe of 170 feet, and all thirty feet in height, with a roadway of eighteen feet wide. It is tbe design known as the Phoenix column, with modiaoatlons and details by Dean & Westbrook, adapted to this particular loeation. The floor system commands admiration for its stability and rigidity, being covered by plank three inches thick on joists four by fourteen inches, all North Carolina yellow pine. The erecting engineer, Mr. W. Langston, has exersised constant supervision over tbe operations, while Mr. M. H. Hepburn, sub-contractor for the masonry, bas devoted a zealous and exacting watchfulness over the work, so that altogether tbe taxpayers have obtained one of tbe most serviceable, and at the same time one of the most pioturesque structures to bo found on tbe SuFquehauna river or its tributaries. Tbe bridge is unusually well painted, the customary monotonous red being broken by coloring some of tbe light work with a pleasing shade of green. A I{�llc of Caloalsl Ximei. Dr. Vandersloot, of tbig city, has In big possession a copper cent, coined in 1783, which Is in a remarkably good state of preservation. On one side of the coin are the words "Unity States of America" and on tbe other the head of Washington and the motto "Washington and lodepend-enoa." The ooin is supposed to be very valuable.

New Yors, Nov. 21.-The luembera of tbe Irisb parliamentary delegates sand oat this circular: Tbe Irisb people are now face to laoe with a determined and powerful attempt, organiztsd by Balfour and a number of Tory and Liberal Unionist capitalists iu England and landlord syndicates in Ireland, to starve out tbe Irisb organizations and the evicted tenants by simultaneously increasing tbe vigor of ooeroioii and (be number of eviotiona. So resolute and merciless is tbe combinatioa that at tbe very moment when, according to the government itself, large portions of Ireland are menaced with severe distress, wholesale evictions are being carried out. The chief purpose of the mission of the Irish delegates to America is to oonnter-act this last desperate assault by one appeal "to tbe generosity of tbe American people for moral and financial aupporC. The amount of sympathy and interest already manifested in their mission baa exceeded their rnost sanguine expectatloas. They now find it will be impossible for them to visit all the towns from wbioh invitations are bying received. It ia therefore suggested that in all such towns snb-Boriptions should be started. The urgency and gravity of the crisis in Ireland, will it is hoped, be allowed to justify the delegates iu earnestly requesting that energy be put forth to make tbe subscriptions oommeosorate with the vast demands on tbe resources of the national party. AH Bubscriptiooa collected should be forwarded to Dr. J. E. Kenny, M. P. and Alfred Webb, M. P., at the office of tbe Irish National League, 43 Upper O'Con-nell street, Dublin, these being tbe two gentlemen appointed by Parnell aa treasurers for the fund raised in America.
