   Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - December 30, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania                                NINTH YEAK-NO. 257. LOCK HAVEN, PA; TUESDAY. DECEMBER 30. 1890. PBICE-TWO CENTS EYENING^EXFBESS K INSLOK BKOTHKB8---PUBUSHEBS THE WEATHES. The foUowiDg forcijast of the westber ii furnlahMl by the Chief Sienal OfBcer at WashlDgton: Forecast till 8 a. in.Wednesday: �Warmer, fair. CURRENT COI�MENT. Thkkk are in the United States sixty-two oities with a population Axoeediof; 25,000. Half a oontury ago, towns of that aizs were oomparattPoly soaroe iu this country. The PostmaHttr-General has disoovered and interrupted a new Iriok of the lottery oompanles, of sending their circular froia a frontierMexioaa Post ofHoe under cover ot Mezioan one-oent stamps. The lottery octopus dies hard. The sooner the Government takes down its bu^e puhlio building at Chicago the better it will be foral'. parties concerned. It ii settling so fast that-buge cracks are openinfc in the walls, breakme the water pipes, flooding the buildioi; and destroy-inf the mail matter. It is a little early for repurtfi on next year's peaeh crop, hut the first one is already at hand. It says the present storm is beneficial, as it will keep the trees cold and prevent their bodding prematurely, as they did last year. The next storm will probably break off all their branches and thus rain the crop. It will never do to have the prognostications all one way. During the month of January there will be paid out in the city of Boston about ten millions of dollars in interest and dividends. New York will pay out about eighty millions, and Philadelphia about tea millions more, making a total for the three cities of $100,000,000. Such an amo'jQt of money thrown upon the market in so short a time ought to afford some relief to the money stringency. AN AWFUL TRIPLE MURDER A Saloon Keeper, His Wife and a Han Shot Down at Broderiok. THE MTJEDEEEE MAKES HIS ESOilE Thbre is said to be a flood of oountor-felt two-dollar silver certificates afloat, so perfectly made that only an expert can detect them. There is also said to bo an issue of flvodoUar gold pieces so close to the genuine in both appearance and value that the Mint is buying them np as fast as presented. How the public is to be protected from these dangerous imitations we are not informed, except that the bills purport to be of the issue of 1SS8 and are all numbered 12,137,093. If this is eor-tect, it will be safest to reject all t2 silver certificates bearing that num>)or-if it can be borne in mind. Th. Te�t'8 Attraction. The version of Uncle Tom's Cabin interpreted by Stetson's Double Monster Company, which will exhibit at the Opera House on Kew Year'a afternoon and eveD_ ing, has met the especial approval of Mrs. Harriet Beecher Slowe, the immortal aothoress of that world-famed drama, from the fact of Manager Stetson's adherence to the arigioal text, which is a complete deviation from the custom of other Uncle Tom managers, who interpolate so many attempted gags, stale jokes and witticisms into their renditions that soarceiy a vestage is left of the never-to-be-forgotten work. Aside from the great worth of the company, every act will bo presented with new and elaborate scenery, painted by the master scenic artist of the world. The excellent company, two comical Top-aies, the two ludiorons, musical Marks, the elegant scenery, the novel mechanical effects, the ferocious bloodhounds, two brass bands and the celebrated Lone Star Quartette will all unite in making the engagement a most notable one. Tke Iteadlna's JCew (taUoo. The building of the new Reading railroad passenger station at 12th and Market streets, Philadelphia, will greatly add to the railroad facilities of that city. iNo expense will be spared to make it In point of arebiteoture and features of cooveniuooe one of the finest structures of the kind in this country or Europe. Its most unique feature will be an inolined plana for vehicles to ascend to the second floor so that passengers coming to or departing from the station in conveyances will not be compelled to no up and down stairs. Large elevators will also be kept in service for pedestrians. All the clerical ofiSona of the oompany, which are now scattered about the city at the various terminals, will be consolidated in apartments on the floors above the station. The restaurant, too, will he a leading feature. A Hujicarlan Eoters the Saloon of Hlchavl Cnrl.7, and Wlthont Apparent Provocation Kill. Cnrl.j's Wtr�. Then ghooU the SmIoom Keeper and End.

WiLKES-B.lKRE, Deo. 29.-The little mining hamlet known as Broderick'a Patch, whioh is located under the shadow of the mammoth breaker of the Wyoming Valley Coal Company, was thrown into a state of excitement to-day over a most brutal and terrible tragedy, which has resulted in the deatk of three persons by gunshot wounds. The first telephonic reports were the most misleading, announcing that Michael Curley had shot his wife and two Haa-gariaos over money matters, afterwards attempting suicide. The Associated Press representative immediately visited the scene, about six miles from this city, where ha learned that Jobu Tirello, a Hungarian from Edgerton, who had been in the hamlet for a few days, entered the saloon of Michael Curley, and in the prea-ense of the latter's five year old daughter, Mamie, who was holding an infant^ shot Mrs. Curley who was working at a wash tub In the front partot the bar room, and then shot Curley, who had just came down stairs. Tirello next turned and shot a man named Michael Hodok, a Hungarian, who died instantly, and then laying the revolver upon the prostrate form of Curley decamped for parts unknowa. Ha has been traced aa far as the atone bridge at Wyoming, three miles away. The shot entered Mrs. Corley's head from the back, and she died instantly. Curley was shot through the forehead and lived two hours. The body of Curley lies in the saloon where the deed was committed. The body of Hoduk was taken to the residence of his bro'.ber, a short distance away, while the remaijs of Mrs. Curley were carried to the residence of her mother, who also keeps a saloon. There was apparently only five persons in the room at the time of the shooting, Curley, his wife, Hodok, Tirello and the little girl. The first three are dead and Tirello has thu.s far escaped the ofSsers. The child is too young to make an io-telligable statement. The theory that Tirello did the shooting is most reasonable, but there are few persons who hold that Curley shot Hodok in an altercation, and Tirelle, who was implicated, did the rest of the shooting. The former theory is probably correct. as a mauufacturlDg centre there will be no lack of opportunities to spread out. The location here of a new industry has a great influence for good, present ing an attractive force that is bound to have its eSeet. Let us have the Rlcker plant and take another strifje in the right direction'. ONE DAY WAS ENODGE A  Tonnic  Bride   Makes   an   Attempt at 8nlclde. Ai,BiA, Iowa, Deo. 29 -The eight of well-dressed young woman snspended in the air by a rope, one end ot which was adjusted to ber neck, and the other,end fastened to a balcony twelve feet above, attracted the attention of the inmates of the Cramer House last nieht, and forthwith consternation and excitement prevailed. Already the woman's face w�b black with strangulation, and the tongue protruding. She waa hastily out down, and after hard work resuscitated. The youog woman's.name is Mrs. Cobb, and she had been married the night before to a medical student of Keokuk, Iowa. She and ber brother went to Keokak the day before, and, it is said, compelled young Cobb to marry her, which he readily did. Why the girl wished to commit suicide is not known. Did Good Service. The Adams Expressmen of this place were never busier than they were during the present holiday season. Agent E. C. Wait and bis accomodating assistants, were kept on the move all day and far into the night, baodliog the vast quantity of goods that came and went, hui on Christmas night they bad the satisfaction of knowing that everything that came into tbelr bands, was properly delivered, even if they bad to bustle to do it. ThOT Want Richer*. Invention. An editorial in to-diy's Williamsport Gmetie and DuUetin proves that the Express was not mistaken ^wben it stated that an effort was bein/ made by the people of that city to secure J. H. Rioker's invention in steam boiUrj. The Gazette and Bulletin says: It is understood that Williamsport has another opportunity for obtainioft' an important mannfaoturing plant, the success of whioh is virtually assured. Friday the Lock Haven Express referred to the J. H. Ricker boiler aa the concern which was occupying the attention of Wiiliamspoit oapitalits. At that time very few in tbe city were cognizant of the fact that Jlr. Rioter was desirous of branching out although it has since eome to notice that suoh is the case. Mr. Ricker was in Williamsport yesterday, his mission being fur the purpose ot enlisting the attention of some of the people here concerning his invention. The Ricker sectional high pressure and domestic boiler is regarded as one of the greatest advances yet made in that line, and the boiler is destined to supercede in general use any that are now manufactured. As stated it was in the interest of his invention that Mr. Ricker visited this city yesterday, and made known bis desire to locate here. Tuns is plainly exhibited the faut that enterprises are drifting this way, and the people should be prepared to accept, every advantage. Mr, Ricker stutes that a limited atuouot of capital would enable hlin to establish a plant that would employ one hundred men at tbe start, and in course of lime this force would be doubled or trebled. He is snxious to luoato his establishment here owing to the superior shipping facilitiee and tbe many other advantages possessed by Williamsport, and our mouicd men, who know a pood thing when they see it, will no doubt be {f.ad to aCGt.mmodate him. As Mr. Riyker'e boibr is superior to any other manufactured there can be no questioi. aa to the success of the eutorprise, aud it behooves the public-spirited to promptly accept the opportunity. This shows conclusively the sttitement hitherto made by the Otizette and Bulletin New Year Open Home. The Toung Mea's Christ an Assoaiation is arranging to have **open bouse" on New Year's day, and the old-fashioned calling custom will once more be in vogue. The rooms of the Association will be very handsomely decorated by different business firms. Messrs, Everett & Co. will decorate the parlor, Messrs. Loder, Duncan & Waidley the reading room, A. L. Benedict the game room, and Mr. Frank Harder the gymnasium. The Entertainment Committee has arranged for an informal program to be carried on during the afternoon, and in the evening a gymnasium exhibition will be given. The ladies have arranged to provide refreshments for the day, and all who call are expected to enjoy a little of our hospitality.  Tbe exercise! of the day will begin at 10 o'clock in the morning and continue at intervals until 10 p. m. From 10 until 12 in the morning will be given to boys between the age of 10 and 15 yeara. The juniors will be entertained in tbe gymnasium. Tbe doors will be opened promptly at 10 o'clock and after a short entertainment there will be a bubble blowing eon-test, and a prize will be given to tbe boy who blows the largest bubble, also one to the boy who blows the largest bubble that sails the farthest through the air, also one to the boy whose bubble travels tbe longest distanee along the floor. Everybody in town is cordially invited to attend this entertaioment and babble blowing contest and all will have a chance to win tbe prizes. The ladies are also providing eome light refreshments for tbe juniors and they can i^xpeet something nice for them on New Years morning. The parents are very cordially invited to come and see tbe boys enjoy themselves. During the afternoon and evening all the friends of the Assooiatios arc welcome to call and see our rooms and see what an outfit we have to entertain with. The early part of the afternoon from 2 o'clock will be taken up with college and glee songs. Tbe orchestra will furnish music, also a number of literary and musical selections will be enjoyed. The gymnasium exbibitien will begin at 8 o'clock. The room for the exhibition is small, so those who wish to enjoy the evening will have to eome early in order to get in. Tiokats for the exhibition are free, and can be secured at the office any time before Thursday. Only a limited number of tickets are iniued. Members do not re-  .--� Three Killed by an Explosion.
