Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - December 22, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAB-NO. 251. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. MONDAY. DECEMBEK 22. 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING^EXl^ESS THK WE4TUEB. The following forecast of Ihe weather is lurnlshed by the Chief Sienal Officer at WaahiDRtou: Forecast till 8 a. m. Tuesday: Fair, s'atiooary temperature. FAIR THE KILKEM CAMPAIGN Mr. Paraell Speaks iu Different Places. Usiug Strong Language. CURRENT COMMENT. Men with plenty of capital can stand Fr�e Trade. It is tbo laborer and the artlsao that It woald reduce to the conditions of the lower olaBHea in the older oationalitieB. A. natural caB well haa been discovered under che peraianent Exposition UroundB at Piltsburg. and the ex-Snoky City papers are Baying that the World'a Fair can't beat that attraction. Indiasa gained 80,000 voters In the last ten years, but only 210,750 in total population. Indiana has always been celebrated for having more voters to her population than any other state in the Union. Another plot to murder the Czar has been discovered. If HiB Majesty keeps tally of all the plots whieh his indefatigable police discover, in their minds or elsewhere, h* must be convinced by this time that he bears a charmed life. It ia deserving of note that Democrats and Republicans alike have been able so soon to agree upon a new basis of representation in Congress. A bill of this kind which is not considered unjust and an outrage by one or the other purties almost seems a marvel. The meanebt man has been discovered in Philadelphia. He is a medical student and was called up in the night to attend a sick man. Wheu he reached the honse he found the man dead, but he demanded his fee all the aame, and broke open a child's toy savings bank to get the $3 he insisted upon having, Ir the Indian outbreak is not speedily quelohed it will not he because the uir-cumstaDces do not conspire thereto. Here ia Sitting Bull dead, the government troops massed in the Northwest and a hard winter coming on. The Indian who wants to fight under such circumetances Must be desperate iodeed. He would have no chance at all. Repkesentativk Brooks, of Philadelphia, expresses himsalf as oonfideut that he will be the next Speaker of the House. He is pronounced iu favur of a new Capitol on the Bite of the present building. He thought lhat the project might be considered at the next session of the Legislature with the prospects of no great opposition. A dispute has arisen ia Kilkenny on the question whether it was lime, flour or mud that was thrown into Parnell'a eyes. The doctors say it was lime, but others who pretend to know say it was one of the other BubBtaoces. Wbiohever it was, it caused much pain and iDliammatioD, and he is not yet out of the danger of losing one, if not both, of his eyes. Governor-elect Kobckt E. Patti-son has had an interview with Adjutsot General Daniel H. Hastings, and as the result of that it was definitely announced oo Thcrsday night that the Nutional Guard of this Slate would participate in the inaugural oeremoBies at Harrisburg on Tuesday, January 20. From the present indications and the present nnderttanding of the matter there will be an imposing display of the military, although the who'.e National Guard of the Commonwealth will not be represented. The Argentine Kepublic has sown the wind and ia reaping the whirlwind. We trust our Farmers' Alliance friends will appreciate the siooile. So long as land could be mortgaged for large sums in eedulap, and tho cedulaa eould be turned into ready casb, prosperity was universal; bnt this blissful state lasted only two or three years, and the country is now at its wits' ends to raise money for current expenses and to meet the interest on its enormous debt. The latest proposition is to levy a tax of two per cent, on deposits In private hanka>-an extreme measure, and one that will be neither poDular nor satisfactory. Truly, "he who goes a borrowing goes a sorrowing," as Poor Uicliard says.__ TiiB Chicago 3un, speaking itpecially for its own State, ntters a few words of advice wbioh are applicuble every place; *'Farmora have been hoarding corn and bankers have been hoarding^ ooin. When corn is not needed the farmers are ready to throw it in the mud, leave it to rot in the fields or use it for fuel. When coin is not needed bankers encourage wild cat speculation and gambling right aud left. There ta a striking similurity between the methods of eoro bankers and coin bankers. Willfully wasteful in times of plenty they help to make woeful want in times of scarcity by miserly boarding. Goullemon, please be a little less prodigal iu times of abundance aod a little more genfrous in times of shortage, and everybody will sleep better and live longer." SHOKT, SHAEP AKD DECISIVE FiaHT rurnell ana Harrlncton Meet at Kilkonny and Botk Addreia the Crowd-Father WaUli Forbids a Heetlnc on the Chapel GroQQda, Bat Paraell Isnoras the Prleik and Proceeds With His Spoach. KiLKENNT, Dec. 21,-PamsU aud Scully, the Paruellito candidate for Parliament, left here at noon to-day and drove to Clare. They were accompanied by a lonf procession of oars filled with Parnell's Bupportera. Upon arriving at Clare the L'arnellites found a meeting proceeding opposite the Catholic chapel in support of Heonessey, When Parnell reached the crowd the priest, Father Walsh, addressiug Parnell, said: **Thoie are chapel grounds; you must not speak here." A local farmer here interspersed saying that the ground did not belong t9 tbe chapel, that it was Keongh'g field and that Parnell bad a perfect right to apeak there. Parnell had invited Father Walsh to hear both sides. Arrangements had been made to hold the meeting in thai field, he said, and it must proceed, PARNELL JtAKES A ePEECS. Father Walsh then requested everybody on his side to ^leave with him, and some few persons followed the priest and Sir Thomas Esmonde, who was also present. A meeting was then organized, and Parnell made an address. Upon conclusion he drove to John's well, where another meeting was hold. While Mr. Scully was addressing this meeting Timothy Harrington arrived and was received by the crowd with much en-thusiafim. Be'ng called upon for a speech Harrington addressed the meeting. Parnell also made a speech. A RIOT AT BUBLTN. Timothy Harrington arrived last night iu Cork, in company with the Mayor of that city. A Dumber of Piiruellites had intended to greet him when he landed from the Aurania in Qneeustown, and had formed a grand torch light procession in his honor. They missed being present on th** steamer's arrival, but nevertheless they made a demonstration, assembling on the quay, and marching through the streets with cheers for Parnell and groans for Hcaly. Finally a body of anti-Parnellitew charged upon the paraders and routed them, throwing them into the harbor. The shindy was a sharp one, and several wore hurt. HarrioKtou holds that a majority of the Irish in America are for Parnell, although he says most of tho dailj newspapers and leading politicians are UKaiDst him. He says ho thinks that Parnell will bot retire, even if his candidate is defeated at Kilkenny. Au Intereittliic B�ok. WilliamEport Kepubljcan. Mr. John F. Meginness has oompletrd the work of "Frauccs Slocutu, the Lost Sister of Wyoming," it has been to the printer, binder and engraver aod is uow ready for distrlbutiOB to subscribers and ottiers. The veteran editor aud author haa given the study of the life of Frances Slocum much of his time during the past few years, has traveled miles to gain some information that would be of importance in tho work, and tbe result is a book of unusual interest. Although the story of Frances Blocum reads more like BctioD than fact, the author ba9 surrounded himself with the proofs of all be writes and gives them iu connection with his story. In former works Mr. Meginness has displayed his ability as a writer of history. His facts have been stated in an interesting and entertaining way and his readers have found profit and pleasure in his work. In tho life of Fran ces Slocum, tho author more than Huataiii bis reputation. History is dry no matter bow well it is written, and it is only the few who take special interest; but in his latest work Mr. Meginness has produced something that once taken up will retain the atteiition of tho reader until it is fin-iabed. TBE OUTLOOK FOB CONGBESS. Mr. VInceut's I.�etnre. Coneorning Mr. Leon H. Vincant who lectures here at tho People's Theatre, Deo. 30tb, 3l8t and Jan. 3d, we publish the following: Mr. Leon U. Vincent's lectures on Ko-raan literature at thr Florida Cbautanqua. and his lectures on English literature at the Island Park Assombly, were tbe sub ject of most favaruble comment, aud drew large aud interested audiences. Inteili-eent people will be delighted with Mr. Vmc^nt's lectures. A. H. Gillet, Sup't Inotrustion at the Florida Chautauqua. In the Senate the Elections Bill Is Still Uppermost. Washinoton, Deo. 21.-It is unlikely that any positive legislation will be achieved in Congress this week, and the failure to tike tbe usual holiday recess is not expected to result ia any measurably advancement of public business. In the Senate the Election bill will probably continue to engross attention, and the list of prospective speakers now in tbe bauds of tbe Vice President, is large enoagh to warrant the assumption that they will, if uninterrupted, consume the first three days of the week. Tbe possibilities of an interruption hinge altogether upon tbe result of tho negotiations now iu progress amoeg the Republican Senators opon tbe subject of tbe oau-eus finauoial bill. If a harmonious understanding to support the measure is reached the Elections bill may ba laid aside in its favor, and the discnssion in tbe Senate turn on financial matters until the day before Christmas, when it is expected a recess will be taken until next Monday. It is probable that successive adjournments for two or three days at a time will mark the course of the House during tho Christmas holiday season. No business of importance is expected to be done, as 80 many members have left Washington for homo that a quorum can hardly be secured. The House is prepared to have a recess for the customary ten days or two weeks, but the temper of the Senate was found averse to this, and at the meeting of the Ways and Means Commilttie yesterday, when Mills' recess resolution was considered, a decided opposition was manifested to placing tbe House in tbo position of desiring ten day's holiday when tha Senate wanted to go on with its work. Monday is District of Columbia day and the House will probably pass upon legislation until some measure is proposed upon whtch a vote is demanded, and the absence of a quorum thereby disclosed. Such other days in the weak as the House is in session will probably bt devoted to comparatively unimportant taeaaures, and roll calls on motions to adjourn. Several appropriation bills have beeo-^portod, and au effort day be made to pais some of these. UnassQminK auti Modest. .John �. DuBois, the millionaire lumbar kiu^, and with home at DuBoIm, Is in the city. Moat of his business engaca-meat'- are in liuffalo md Pittsburg, and some heavy inveatrnfeuis are taken ciro of by Cochran, Paine & McCormick, the Wliliamsport bankers. Plain, unassuming and modest in bearing be passes unknown among the genialjthrong, but few Penusylvauians can write out a greater check. He owns 500,000.000 feet of white pine limber on the stump, tbe largest bunch in t^e remnant atill loft from formerly oons.idered unlimited forests. His big mills at DuBois have cut 340,000 feet of pine and hemlock in a day. His tannery at DuBoJB employs over 200 men, and it irt stated tbat be controls thirty-six miles of lumber country, in which soft o >al Jtvolopraents are soou to be made.- PbiUt'elphia 'Jimes. I>eatli of Mrs. GIfTord. The remains of Mrs. Lydia GifTord, widow of tho late William E. Gifford, arrived in this city Saturday nijiht from Caicago, and were interred in the Dunns-burg comotery yesterday. Mrs. Gifford and her tate husband were formerly real dents of Island, and have numerous relatives in this county. Her age was 73 years. TRANSPIRINGS OF A DAY. A Larfio Carp. C. C.
