Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - November 24, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAB-NO. 228. LOCK HAVEN, PA., MONDAY. NOVEMBER 24. 1890. PBICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPBESS KIM8U>E BKOTHBB8 - - - f UBMSHEB8 CURRENT COMMENT. Ome hundred and forty-four votes in the ilze of the Democrstio Governor's majority in NebraBlta^__ SOMS time ago. Governor Hill, of New York, aaid be would not accept the United States Senatorskip. Now he says he is willing to take it. Thet say wealtb can purchase any tbiog in this country, but Jay Gould would not try to net the Presidential nomination of itber party. The oommeroial agencies report that general trade was little affected by tbe financial flurry. It has been noted, through it all, that small investors, iu and out of town, bava been gathering io the securities which the financiers threw away; showing that the country at large was not scared at all. It is understood that the Democrats in the Legislature ac Harrisbnrg will vote for William A. Wallace as their candidate for United States Senator. The Democrats who are now in control of the party machinery bav^ no objection to bestowing such "honors" as this on Mr. Wallace. But if there bad been a Democratic ma-jarity in the Lagislatnre, tbe Clearfield statesman would have been once more stood aside. OuBiKG the current month the Seors-tary of the Treasury purchased 4,S00,00 ounces of silver bullion under the present law. This large purchase, the largest by far ever made by the Government io the same length of time, has made no appreciable inroad on tbe supply of silver in tbe market. Instead of going up in price it has steadily declined until from $1.21 per ounce it is now soiling under a dollar. Tee attempts which have been made bere and there to organize an opposition to the re-election of 3, Donald Cameron to tbe United States Senate have thus far failed to produce any results. No other candidate has appeared in tbe field against bim, and it is not probable that any will appear who will develop any strength sufficient to impair Senator Cameron's obances of re-election. It is now more than probable that be will be his own successor for the term of six years, beginning with tbe 4tb of March, 1SS1, and it is likely that the Kopublioan Legislative caucus will be either unanimous or nearly unanimous in favoring bis retarn. The War Department has given its ap-proTal to a scheme for whish Congress will be asked to appropriate the snm of 1100,000 to carry into effect. This is to make a thorough expleration of tbe Territory of Alaska under tbe auspicss of tbe War Department. The plan aa well as tbe general details have been prepared by two officers of tbe army who have seen much service in Alaska. The plan ccn-templatei a foree of from 50 to 100 enlisted men, properly officered, besides a corps of scientists. These would take with them a saw mill and locate a settlement on the wooded banks of the great Yukon river. Here houses would be built and general headqnarters established. From this point exploration parties sonld be sent into every part of tbe Territory. A OratlfyiHC Enderssmcnt. Lock Haven Daily Democrat. Whatever may be said In regard to tbe malt of tbe Congressional contest in this district, one thing is certain, Mr, Hopkins bad tbe masses of bis own party well organized in this county and held them right to their posts, while he had a large number of personal Democratic friends who TOtid for him. This accounts for his majority In Clinton county. Wo don't believe that any other Republican in tbe district could have carried this county against Elliott, and especially when op posed by prominent leaders of his own party. Looking at the matter dispassionately and considering the really solid Democratic majority in Clinton, it was truly a somewhat remarkable personal triumph and the Cooeressmaa-el�bt has good reason to feel gratified at his endorsement by the people.

Say That it Wonld ba Uaiafa to Remain. PiEiiBB, Nov. 23.-Two Indian Missionaries of the Episcopal obnrob, Ashley and Garrett, arrived in Pierre last night from Pine Ridge agency. They were warned by the Indians that it would not be safe for them to remain there. They report that a great many families are leaving there as fast as they can get away. It is stated that there are not seven hundred Indians on the lands recently eeded to the government, and those who are in position to speak with authority say there is no danger. THOOrS FROM UI880TJEI. St . Louis, Nov. 23.-General Merritt, Commander, this morning received instructions from Washington to send troops at once to Fine Ridge agency, the ssene of tbe Indian trouble. General Merritt accordingly ordered a regiment of the Seventh Cavalry, consisting of about 800 men under command of Colonel Forsyth, and a company of artillery with a battery of four guns, commanded by Captain Camperon, from Fort Riley, to the scene of trouble. The troops left to day by special train. General Merrit said: "I do not know how serious the trouble is, and of course cannot now say whether more troops will be sentor not. Or coursethey will be sent if necessary. I have no information further than that the orders were received from headquarters at Washington and I have acted accordingly." It is learned that every soldier in the Department of Missouri is in readineES to start for Dakota at a moment's notice. a PLOT EXPOSED. Omaha, Nov. 23.-A Pine Ridge special gives the details of a plan by which the Indians expected to ambush Qoaeral Brooke's force and kill them all. It was brought by a reliable person, wha over-beard the Indians discussing their plans, while ha pretended to be asleep in a tepee. LOOKING UP THE �VVASDEniSO ikdiasb. BisMA-RCK, N. D., Nov. 23.-To-day's advices from Standing Rock continue favorable. Rations were issued yesterday, and Agent McLaughlin reports only a small number of bucks away. The military authorities' count shows that a large number did not appear, however, and today a scouting party crossed the river to look up the wandering Indians. TO OIEIOLVE PARLIAMOTI Sallabary to Take Advautaca or the Par-neil ticandal. LosD n, Nov. 23.-A rumor is current and is credited at the Carleton Club, and other conservative centres, that Salisbury, deeming the time opportune while the Parnell scandal is fresh in the minds of the people, has decided to dissolve Parliament in the spring. UnlplBC the Claar Indattry. The McKtnley bill was signed on tbe first of October, and during that mouth 425,000,000 cigars were manufaolured in this country and sent tomarket, asagainst 370,000,000 for October, 1389, an Inoreasc of 14.80 percent. For the previous nine months of the year the output was 1,020,-000,000, aa against 1,480,000,000 for the first nine months of 1889, an increase of 134,000, or 9 per cent. Thus the MoKiu-ley bill has been so good for cigar manufacturers as to raise their rate of increase of business from 0 per cent, to nearly 15 per cent. And this increased business means increased employment and more money for cigar makers who are willing to do more piece work. How Small Panics Stait From the New Yort Press. The old saying that "one goose makes many," w&s exemplified la the "jun" on the Citizens' Savings' Bank. A poor, foolish woman, who bad (38 on deposit there, heard that the banks were all breaking and rusbed bareheaded through the streets, with ber bank book la her hand in baste to secure her money. The crowd followed-foolish, panic-stricken, unreasoning. It was panic, the only remedy for which Is cold cash. Fortunately there is plenty of cash in this case and the depositors who got their money will soon wonder what possessed them to withdraw it. The Orlftln orihe llucktalls. Seven cities contended for tho honor of being tbebiitbplaopof Homer. Abouttbat number of men claim tbe honor of organizing tbe Die of the buck's tail on tbe caps of tbeae famoas soldiers. At tbe reunion in Wellsboro last week tbe matter was brought up. We quote from the Agitator: "Col. S. D. Fieeman, of Smethport, who was the first surgeon of the Buok-tails, says that several erroneous statements have been published regarding the origin of the use of tbe buck's tail as a symbol for the regiment. He says that after tbe enlistment of the regiment In 1861 CapUIn W. T. Blanchard, of Company I, and Colonel Kane were discusaing the question on the streets in Smethport, Mc-Eeau county. A large deer was hanging out in front of a market opposite tbe public square. Blanchard noticed itand said, 'Why not take a buck tall ?' Kane replied, 'That's just the thing!' They went over to out the tail off that deer and the bide was cut into small pieces and put on tbe soldiers' bats. Tbe first man to wear tbe buck tail was James Landragan, of Kane. He attended the rannion last week." "Godey" for Christmas. The publishers of "Godey'l Lady's Book" promised us a real treat in the Christmas number, and nobly have they fulfilled their promise.
