Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - April 23, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAR-NO 46. liOCK HAVEN, PA., WEDNESDAY. APRIL 23. 1890. PBICE-TWtflGElMfe. EVENING EXPRESS KIXSIOB BBOT*qCB8---PPBU8HKB9 CURRENT COMMENT. It ia not every man who improves his voice by having bis throat oat. Yet this is said to have been Campanini'a unique experience The advent of Marat Halatead in the jonrualiata of Urooklyu will b� likely to give the Republicans of that city what they have long nreded-a Orst-ckifs Re publican paper. New Tobk wi'.l get  slice of the world's fair oolebrattoD in 1893, after all. Tde bill has passed the Senate to hold tr-e fair at Chicago, but piovides for a nav.i! review ia tbe harbor of New York. Small fcvors lunuklully received. Major McKjkley follows the load ol Senator Ingalla In declaring bis preference for Berjamin Harrison ss the Presidential candidate, for 1892. "He has kept tbe promises he miide," is a eulogy such as few President* beside Mr. Harrison have deserved or received. Baltimore expects to wipe out its floating debt and reduce its taxes by the money received under the high license act. This is not tbe best of it, however, for at least-nine hundred liquor stores will refuse to take out license under tbe new act, so that Baltimore is morally the gainer. Ah iffer of $.'�00,000 a year for a poriod . of twenty-five years has been made by tbe Louisiana Lot'my company to the State of Louisiana lor a renewal of their present eharter for that length of time. Tbe Government carries the mails of this concern and a chartered Government bank transacts all its financial business, yet the Government cannoi: stop the frand. Johx C. Fbemokt, who has been pi iced on tbe retired list of tbe army, with the rank of Major General, has bean unfortunate in business, and in bis advanced ngt haa bad only precarious means of gaining, a livelihood. Tbe substantial compliment which has been paid him is in sympathetic remembrance of what he was in the days when he was the first Republican candidate for tbe Presidency. Tub eigarette bas proved itself as fatal as "Rough on llata" in many instances. It seems to be especially dangerous to immature boys. Smoking cigars seems to have few or no harmful effects on mature persons, bnt cane after case of cigarette poisoning ia reported. Perhaps moderation would not prove so harmful, nut one of tbe evils of tbe eigarette habit seems to be an unoontiolable tendency to run into excesses. xfnrray and Murphy Next The popular and favorite Irish comedians, Murray & Murphy, have been specially engaged for Friday night, April 25th. Murray & Murphy will be seen in their sensational and amusing comedy entitled "Our Irish Visitors," a play wbioh has won for them great praise and notoriety tbrbugh tbe United States. Murray & Mnrpby are comedians of great ability and are recog-nixod as the peers of Irish comedy. As the orignators of that popular and famous song "Down Went McGloty," the names of Murray & Mnrpby will long be remembered. They graphically describe at each and every performance the trouble of McGinty and also sing tbe companion song to it, "And 1 Vent with Him." The Col. Giluooley and Alderman Mo-Ginnis, of Messrs. Murray & Murphy, have come tj be expected for an aonual visit, each year with some new experiences in tbe way of Iiish humor, and they were greeted at the Boston theatre last evening by a large audience, wbioh laughed itself hoaro at tbe continued mess in which these worthies manage to keep themselves. Of course there are the nsual^uarrels and the inevitable picnic, but introduced in snob a way and' with snob accessories, as ' to make them as fresh and amusing as ever. Words of praise for tbe two comedian* woold bs merely cumulative and could not add to their fame.-Boston Journal. THE LEVEES GIV� WAY.

New Orleans, 28 -Governor Niobola has reoeived the following'. : ;: Batou, Sara, April 22.-We have been overwhelmed by storm and raio. Crevasses numerous along the front.

The Timei-DtmocraftBtyou Saraspeoial, dated last night, says: Altera most heroic struggle to save our city from tbe flood, we'had to surrender to tbe great father ol waters at 12:30 am. At thai hour the guards gave warning that the levee had given away at the foot of Fountain street. A general alarm was stated, and the people responded quickly to the call. Tbis break was closed, but on examination It was found tbat the rising river was running over the front levee. All tbat human efforts could do had been done, and at last the solemn cry went up all along the line, "Give up men; we are gone," and then the confusion of the people can be better imagined than described.
