   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - November 28, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                mnm NINTH YEAR-NO. 231. LOCK HAVEN, PA., FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 28, 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINSLOE BBOTHEKS---PPBIJSHEB8 CURRENT COMMENT. The Doited States SnpromB Court has reaffirmed its previous deoiaion that elcc trocutioD is oonstltutional. BiLTiMOKE is already well supplied with parks, one of them beiug among the finest Id the country, but for all that she baa just purchased another one at a cost of (45,000. ViROiNiA's leading Democrats, lilie Senators Barbour and Daniel, assert that Mr. Cleveland is not the man for their party io 1892. This does not look like "a solid South" for Grover. Mb. Wall.^ce, not wanting the empty honor of a Democratic nomination for Uaited States Senator, word has been sent out along the Demioratic Hue that it shall be given to Channcey F. Blaok. Secret-ikt Wisdom is trying to devise some safe plan for tbe expansion of the onrrenoy. He does not apper to think tbe plan of the Farmers' Alliance a good one and the majority of the people agree with bim on this point. Facts are continually leaking out which tend to show to the people that much of what has been sa'd about Russia's treatment of her Jewish population is true, despite the contrary declaration made by that government and othete who from time to time speak in her defense. The run on the Citizens' Savings Bank of New Tork has ceased. Tbe men and women who drew out their money are now bringing it back to re-deposit it. They only wanted to know whether it was there or not. This bit of information has cost them about ?S,000 in tbe shape of interest, which they sacrificed in order to secure their cash. It is usually understood that a lawyer's business is to take every case that is ofler-ed him, and do the beet he can for his client; but Senator Carlisle's action in be-oomlog attorney for a numtierof Kentucky lotteries will not add to bis reputation as a statesman, however much fame it may bring him as a lawyer. Ddring the year, the government life-saving stations rescued 3,159 persons and $5,431,843 worth of proJ)eity from three hundred aud eighty-four shipwrecks. This is ground enough fo Superintendent Kimball's recoifimendatioa that the miserable pay of the men who risk their liies in the work be increased to something like a respectable figure. Mr, Wasanaker is still a firm believer in postal savings banks, and will advocate them in bis forthcoming report. Itseems, however, that he would use them as an adjunct to and not a rival of the savings banks of the cities and would, therefore, establish them principally at county post-offices where there are no other depositaries of small snms. THE GREAT FOOT BALL GAME Tale Defeats Princeton by a Score of 32 to NotUng, COLLAPSE OF A BK FREE STAND Were wb not told a little while ago that this was a famine year ? Then what means this cry from the far Northwest for car* to transport the grain, whiob their ovstflowing storehouses cannot hold ? It is hard to famish this country all at once. But another thought on the same point is, wby should It be necessary for the Ta-ooma Chamber of Commerce to pass a formal resolution oalling for oars ? There are as many freight cars in this country as there were last year, if not a great many more, and if they were available, they would be sent after this offered freii^ht quite promptly. If they are not sent, it is beoanee they are otherwise empli)yed.

PENCILIKea Two Thotuand Ipectatora Snddenlr Precipitated to the Ground In a CoDfoMd and BtmicUnC Mass, mini CP VfllH Broken Tlmbvrs and Wreekas*-Fifty Persons IiUurcd. Nkw York, Nov. 27.-Tale won the foot ball game by a score of 33 to nothing. Promptly at 1:50 p. m. there was a wild waving of orange and black flags, and "Hurrah ! Hurrah < Hurrah 1 Prinse-ton," ran out upon the air. In a wild rush the Princeton team came upon the field. King and Homans playing with the ball in an imaginary tackle. Five minutes later tbe cry was heard, so deep and sonorous that it resembled the roar of the ocan. Yale's eleven appeared, and the public woke np and cleared the space marked out in huge ehalk lines five yards apart. At eiactly two o'clock, almost before the spectators were aware of it,the ball was put in play and tbe great straggle was began. Th* excitement was at its height and flags danced up and down and Princeton with the V trick. The orange and the black had the best of it for five minutes, and then Yale went to work. Ten minutes later MoClung made a touch down and kicked a goal and yells greeted tbe work. From the first it was seen that Yale's rush line was too strong for Princeton. It was like a battering ram. Poe and Knight did great work, and Homan's also, but tbe star of tho day was McClnng. His work was remarkable. His head was bandaged and his long hair got so rampled in the Strug, gle that he looked like a wild Indian as ha ran through the Princeton tackle line with the ball bogged close to his breast. He made tbe first three touches down for Yale. Heffeianger was another brijliaot worker. His rushes were phenomenal and at one poitit he ran five yards with that nam her of Princeton men clicging to his back, lu oocsequeoce of Yale's superior rush line tbe game was rather one-sided, and most of the play was around Princeton's goal. There was no wind and neither bad an advantage over the other on tbe field in point of position. Notwithstanding tbe immense oddci against them the Princeton team worked with a will and never lost hope np to the time the last point had been made and time was oalled. Tbe Yale men celebrated. After 10 o'clock the boys became wild. The scene in the Hoffman House bar was one not to be readily forgotten. Men were shouting and waving hats and colors. At ten min. utes of 11 Ed Stokes, proprietor of the Hoffman House came out of his private office and ordered tbe lights out and the doors closed. A wild rash was made for the Fifth Avenue Hotel then, but there the boys weie disappointed (or the bar room was closed against them. Tho St. James was tried next but there too thoy failed. All hotels and cafes in the neighborhood were closed.  A few arrests were made. A STASD weecked, R. J. Coffey opened bis meat market on Bellefonte avenue to-day. W. C. Sherlock, of Altoona, is circulating among his Look Haven friends. John Leahy, of Clearfield, is visiting his brother. Sheriff Leahy, In this city. Masters Harry and Joe Rittman spent their Thanksgiving with relatives in Re-novo. Mr. and Mrs. W. H. McCollum are at Salladasburg attending tbe funeral of a relative. "Charley" MoGhee, who is in the teath-or renovating business at Hornellsville, N. Y., is in town to-day. Harry Peoploa came down from Johc-sonburg to eat bis Thanksgiving dinner with relatives in this city. Ex-Sheriff Jobn Candor is going about on orutcher to-day, on account of having sprained one of bis ankles very badly. Hiss Lucy Morgan, of Bellefonte, accompanied by her cousins Miss Gertrude and Je.inette Erbard spend Thanksgiving Day with friends in this city. J, fl. HinksoD and 8. M. MoCormiok, Esq., were the only representatives of Canton Look Haren, L O. O.F., at tbe inititatiog of the new Caoton in Jersey Shore Wednesday eight. Fife; PertooB iDjnrcd at the Tale.Princetou root Ball Game, Brocklvn, Nov. 37.-A terrible accident occurred on the foot ball grounds a few minutes after 12 o'clock. A big free stand on the eastern side of the grounds suddenly collapsed, carrying down its en tire load of human beings. Tbe crash came without any warning whatever and at tbe same time tbe long rows of bleachers were olosely peeked with 2,000 spectators. A scene of indescribable confusion followed. The occupants weie mostly men a great majority of them students from Yale and Princeton. There', were also many women in the crowd. They all lay in a conlused and struggling mass upon tbe ground. Many of them were completely burled under the wreckage of planks and two joists, of which tbe rickety Btrueture was built. The people lutbed to their assistance and soon had the wreck cleared i.way. At first it was feared thai some might have been killed, but this fear proved to be unfounded. Many persons, bow-ever, were very sevirely hurt, and broken limbs and bruised heads and bodies were nnmerons. Tbe injured were taken to the Brooklyn hospital. The list of the injured comprises about fifty names, most of whom are college students. A Prinoeton student named Curley is unconscious aud his case Is deemed most serious. The ataod was evidently in a most unsafe condition, for the broken timbers showed that many of them were nearly rotted in two, while the whole strnctarc was the most flimsy affair imaginable. When it began to fill Dp with �peetator* tbe joists i were beard to craok and itraio, and ni*Dj who started to find seats gave it up as a dangerous job. Tbe greatest indignation prevailed among the people on tbe grounds against tbe management. THE INDIAN SITCATIOS. It IB Believed That tbe Troubles Will Soon be settled.    , Cuic.iGO, Nov. 27.-A special from Pino Ridge Agency says: Unless tbe Indians are frigb tencd or driven into a fight during the next week, there is every probability that the Indian troubles on the Pine Ridge Agency will be settled without diflioulty. General Miles has received no iaforma-tion of the reported confiict between Indians and troops near Fort Eeogb, and does not believe the story. TO HAVE PLEKTY OF LIGHT Blanchard and Schultz to Erect Our Incandescent Electric Light Plant. ACTION OF THE BOAKD OF TEADE At tbe PUybouM. Breathing spaoo was at a premiam at the Opera House last night and many were unable lo get into tbe building at all. The play of "Roaedale" was entbua-iastioall received and proved to be inter-eating throughoat. The Waite company wear well; the more one sees of it the better they like it. Miss Crego is young and talented. Her figure is lithe and graceful and her face full of expression, her eyes being exceptionally fioo. Sbe has a full, elear voice, a distinct enunciation and admirable elocutionary powers. There are many actresses who thrill us, many who command our admiration by physical beauty and art, but scarcely one who creeps into our affeotiona unawares and gains a firm place as Katherine Crego does. Her "Fanchon" Wedneeday night and **Kathleen" at tbe Thanksgiving matinee were revelations and disclosed stage powers of an nnusual cbaraoter. Her tenderness is supremely captivating acd her anger makes one shudder. Mr. Waite, who has been on the stage for twenty years, needs no commendatioD from oar hands. He knows all tbe ins and outs of tbe profession and in the selection of his present company has shown ezoellent judgment. Tbe music of tbe orchestra at every performance is heartily encored and the sensational overtures are alone wor'.h the price of admission. Tbe company remain with na bat two nights longer and full bouses should and doubtless will greet tbem for the rest of their engagement. To-night "Our Jack'will be tbe programme. It has been seen here before but by the introduction of numerous specialties and rearrangement will appear entirely new to all. Special popular presentation matinee to-morrow afternoon at 2 p. m., when one hundred presents will be given away. The play will bo 'Fancbon, the Cricket,'^ a cbaraoter in which Miss Crego excels. Qo and take tbe children. On Saturday night a gold watch will be given away. Numbers will bedistributod among theaudience to-nig'st and to-morrow night, which entitles the bolder to a chance in the time piece. ThaDkiBlvlDff at Renovo. Renoto, Nov. 28. The anion Tbanksglving seivioe held yesterday morning by tbe M. E., Lutheran and Presbyterian churches, in the latter church, was a surprise to every one, the ohurch being filled to its fullest capacity. Tbe muaio was excellent and the Rev. J. D. Cook preached the sermon, taking the first and second verses of tbe 107tb Psalm as a basis for his remarks. There was also services held in tbe Trinity Episcopal churob and the St. John Sweedish Lutheran and the St. Joseph Catholic church. Tbe cantata given in tbe M. E, churoh last night for the benefit of the churoh was a success, both flnaucially and otherwise and those who labored so hard to get it up are entitled to a great deal of praise, while every one acted their part well and it was a well spent Thauksgiving evening.

This "ghost" is said to ba armed, and at night the streets are deserted ^ by tho female sex who are too frightened to go out of their homes after dark, and, as a consequence, the merchants say they might just as well close their places of business with the setting of tbe sun.

The editor of the Sugar Valley/yurnai has been informed that the projectors of the Wilkesbarrc & Western Railway have over one hundred men at work on the Eastern extension of the road to Rohrs-burg. There remains about ten miles of the road to build yet. This line of railway and the proposed Bellefonte & Eastern Railway are identical, and it is stated that as soon as this Eastern extension is completed to bhickshinny the gentlemen at tbe head of the project will turn their attention to this end of tbo line and push the work through to completion as soon as possible. By this it will be seen that the project has not been abandoned, and there are still hopes for a railroad through Sugar Valley. Church Uedicatloa.

VoM Wltb tha Government od the Hea.nra-The Pro-vlilona of the New BUI Not Matellally DllTerent From Those of l^ut Session*. BUI. London, Nov. 37.-Iu the Hoase of Commons to-day Ualfour introduoed the Irish land bill. He eald tbe Opvernmeut's policy was the same as in 1889, bat for simplicity tbe bill had been out in half. But portions, however, wers practically the same as ic the bill of 1890, One variation of the present bill from that of last year was that it met iu some degree Parnell's views. Parnell had saggested that the privilege of purchase be confined to tenanis whose holdings were under 50 pouuds valuation. Though he (Balfour) could not accept exactly that limitation. He bad altered tbe scope of the bill, by cxoludiug all purely grazing farms and farms whose tenants did not reside on thum. Among other changes embodied in tbe new bill one had reference Lo the objectloo taken at the last sesson to the limit of twenty years purchase then proposed. That limit did not appear in the new bill. (Cries of hear, bear). Further power would be given to the viceroy to extend the period of five years during which 8 per cent, of the purchase money was payable. In regard tL> increasing tbe power of local autboritlHS. Balfour said he considered that the original proposals therefore iu the bill were the best that could be devised. Labouchere moved an amendment ai;aiDst pledging tbe Imperial credit for the purchase of land, until the country should have given its consent at a general election. Labouchere's amendment was rejected by a vote of 263 to 117. Gladstone, Sir William Vernon Harcourt and Mr. Motley walkad oat before the vote was taken. Parnell and all Parnell members voted with tbe governneBt. The bill was then given Its first reading amid cheers of the government supporters. BCVEIf TEARS REST FOR 8EAI.. Peter MellllerV.Generoslty. The Sugar Valley Journal says Peter Moitzler, of Look Haven, did a very liberal act tbe other day, when he contributed $75.00 to tbe Lutheran church of Logan-ton, which is to bo expended in constructing a new pavement and making other improvements. The members of the ohurch uuito in voting him thanks for his kindness. The Tobtl N.mher in Americ.n Waters Be- daced to 100.000. Washinotos, Nov, 27.-Professor H. R. Elliott, of tho Smithsonian Institution, will present a report to Congress on its reassembling on the seal fur industry. Professor Elliolt will recommend that the catch of fur seals at tbe American rookeries be suspended for seven years. This period of inactivity be considers absolutely necessary for the preservntion of the seal from utter annihilation. At tbe present time he estimates that there ar* only 100,000 seal in American waters. Tbe continued depredutiocs upon them by pirates has reduced the number so mnch that hardly a sufiiciect number remain for breeding purposes. The utmost care be considtTS necessary to preserve tha few that remain, or else the magnificent indu�-try which was purchased from Russia with the Alaska cession will become extinct. It was on account of Professor Elliott's knowledge of the lur seal industry that be was especially designated by Coogtess to visit Alaska and make a repoit on the subject. Tbe agents of the fur and seal companies who enjoyed the privileges about tho islands of St. George and St. Paul, made represcnt.'vtion that thero were 1,000,000 seal in the American rookeries. Other reports placed the number at 500,-000, aud still others at a lesser number. All these aonHtotiug reports, made by parties more or less interested, induced Congress to send Professor Elliott to Alaskan waters, and his report that not over 100,000 seal have survived tbe war of exterroiuation will, it is believed, call halt iu their destruction.

McKinnny Brothers, oil operators, have sold to the Standard Oil Company, for $250,000, ail their leases and property io Warren, McKcan and Butler counties, Penn'a, and at Flodlay, Ohio. The sale covers nearly 20,000acres of developed and nndevelopop oil territory. to their plant, aud the contract given to the B,>11 Engine Company specifies a one hundred aud forty horse power engine. The conJpany bas also contracted for two large boile-rs of suitable capacity to drivb the engine. These together will liunii^' sufficient power to run two dynamo*, one of 50 arc lights and one of 1500 ineandea-oent lights. The company will also have in reserve tbe engine and boiler now in use for any future emergency. Mr. Will Harris, the Treasurer of the company, tates that it is hardly to be expected that so large a number of consnmei* of incaa-deseeut lights could be found in this citj at present. Mr. Harris also saya, that notwithstanding tbe present eleetrio lights in use have not so far paid them, jet th* company will assure the citizens that th* price for the incandescent lighta will be made as low as other towns furnish agood light of this kind. The company also hopes by having a surplus of incandescentr capacity to be able to make special contracts for lightning any and,all institutions or manufacturing establishments in the suburbs of the oity, thereby enabling them by quantity to keep the price low.

Coffee a. a stimulant. ; It is asserted by men of high professional ability that �ben,tl)e system needs a stimulant nothing excels a cup of freeh -cofi'ee. Those who desire to resouo the dipsomaniac from his caps will find no better substitute for spirits than strong, newly made coffee witboat mi>k or sugar. Two ounces of.coffee,, or one-eighth of a pound, to one pint of boiling water, makes a first-class beverage; but the water mast be boiling, not merely hot. It is asseited that malaria and epidemics are avoided by those whodrinkia cup of hot coffee before venorlpg .into th* morning air.
