mnm NINTH YEAB^NO-131.. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. SATURDAY. AUGUST 2, 1890. PBICE-TWO CENTS EVENlN_GjE3a>RJ|g KINSIA>E BROTHERS - - - PCBLMHEBS CURRENT COMMENT. Since his retirement from ofBoe Prinoe Bismarok has reduced his weight, has slopt better and 19 generally in better health. Titere ate two Republicans among the one hundred and fifteen members of toe Mississippi Constitutional Convention. Just enough to serve as curiosities. According to the report of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue, there was an inerease of nearly thirteen millions of dollars over the revenue of last year. Sixteen argument* . were produoad showing why "Marsh" Cook should not boelocteda memberof the Mississippi Constitutional Convention. Oao of them related to the fact that be was a Republican. The other-fifteen were buckshot. The account* of a pill-maker who has just died in England show that he has been spending $300,000 a year for advtrtnv ing. Bis heirs, however, are finding no particular fault with this extravagance, as he leaves an estate valued at (25,000,000- all due to pills and advertising. So far as we have been able to learn, there is no crying demand for the expenditure of some $25,000,000 for public buildings during the doming fiaoal year. As the country'* Gnaaoea hardly warrant such extravagance it the (resent time, this item might as well be cut down to the sums necessary to continue work already begun,-; Tbe Jersey Shore Videtie has entered upon its fourth year and during the past three years has steadily gained friends under tbe energetic management of John W. and Robert H. Grier, Jr. It is an excellent local newspaper and deserves the success it has met with. The Express extends oejngratulatibng to" the Grier Bros., and wishes them continued prosperity. The devastating ureT which occurred In Seneca Falls last Wednesday was primarily due to the erection of a tall building con. truoted after the plan of lofty New ~Vork flats. It Was predicted when the building was in process of erection that it was a menace to tbe community, and that if fire should break ont in it with the limited resources of tbe Ore department a disastrous conflagration would result. Tbe destruction of fifteen aores of flue buildings furnishes amplo justification for the protest. .j_ Flood* similar to those whieh prevailed in this country a year ago are now inundating European countries. Tbe Salzach river in Austria has overflowed its banks and many people have been drowned, one report stating as high as 2,500men, women and ohildren included. Tbis is even a greater number than tlioso deolared officially to bave perished in tho Conemaugh Valley. Yet the victims are so far away that we are not much moved by tbe information. The statement is contained in a paragraph, but the account of the Johns towndisaater fillet] pages of our newspapers for weeks. A life is a life all the world over, but the livos only of those near or dear to ub are of value to ua. It seems that the Russian government has resolved to enforce tbe edicts of 1882 against the Jewe. Aooerding to t] the Jews must henceforth reside in certain towns only. None will be permitted to own land or hire it fot agricultural purposes. The order Includes w ithin its scope towns and hundreds of villages that have large J*w!�b populations. No Jew will bo allowed to *oId shares in or work mine*. The law limiting the provinces will be enforced. No Hewbrew will be allowed to enter the army, to practice medicine or law, to be an engineer or enter any of the other professions. They will also be debarred from holding posts under the government. Tbe enforcement of tbe edict will result in the expulsion of over 1,000,000 Jews from the country. A Handsome Outiit. A handsome wsgon with plate glass sides and front is being drivou about the streets to-day that attracts much attention The wagon is used to advertise the stoves and ranges sold by Col. W. H. Mayer Tho turnout ie from tbe Abram Cox stove company, 144 North Second street, Phila delphi. Three of the leading stoves made by tho firm are displayed in tbe wagon. The Party of Life Progress. Ht. j-iouis Globe-iJemocral. The Republican section of the country is growing raster than tho Democratic section. Tbis tendency is shown even in Democratic States. Tho Republican end of Touuessec, for oxampls, is outstripping the Democratic end in increase in popola-tiou and goneral development. Before tho Alderman, Charles W. Smith and Thomas W. Haw-Lhorne were before Alderman Harris this morning charged by Water Superintendent Keller with Ashing and wading in tho wator supply of tho city. The men were held in bail for a bearing next Friday.

This morning, about 1 o'clock, Ore broke ont in the stave and shingle mill of Fredericks & Co. at Farrandsville, and before the flames conld be controlled tbe mill and six dwelling houses wire reduoed to aBhea. The houses were situated near the mill, and woro ocoupied by Frank EiBleman, James Perry, Samuel Roddy, John D. White, John M. Smith, and Pred. Speaker. Tho fire originated in tbe mill, and the first house to whioh the flames communicated was the one ocoupied by John M. Smith. So rapidly did the flames spread that it was impossible to remove any of his household goods, and consequently nothing was saved. Tho other families ware more fortunate, and succeeded in saving most of their goods. The stave mill is only a Bhort distance from tho planing mill of Messrs. Fredericks & Co., and it was only by the most heroic efforts on the part of the citizens of the placo that the mill and lumber-yard were saved from destruction. There was no Insurance on the mill and houses ; there was no insurance on the household goods of ouy of tho families burned out. The homeless people were taken in rjid cared for by their neighbors until other homes can be found. The mill contained complete machinery for the manufacture of staves and shingles, and also a oircular saw for cutting bill-timber. The mill was in operation yesterday, and it is thought the flro originated in the fire-room. Hydrophobia Feared.

Tho Ponunjlvanla Railroad Sqaares Accounts With the State. Tbe Pennsylvania Railroad Company ou Thursday paid off tbe last installment on account of the purchase of the main line from the State. A cheek for $635,651M was sent to tbe State Treasurer, and his receipt in full for all claims of the State against the railroad company on account of tho purchase of the publio works was taken. These works were a railroad from the Delaware river, at the foot of Market street, Philadelphia, to Columbia; a canal from Columbia to Hollidaysburg, on the eastern slope of the Allegheny Mountains; another railroad across the mountains to Johnstown, and then another oanal from Johnstown to Pittsburg. There were UB miles of railroad and 377 miles of oanal, a total of 395 miles, and tbe construction cost tho State-f15,624.714. In 1857 the Pennsylvania Railroad purchased tbe works, except s small portion In Philadelphia, wbioh was booghVbf the Reading Railroad. The Pennsylvania paid (7,500,000 for its share, and agreed to make payment at the rate of (400,000 per annum. The whole ram ? as to be paid not later than August 1,1890. Every payment has been made without default, and the balanee of $635,000 waspaid Augustl. The State will undoubtedly miss the regular payments of (460,000 whioh came in so promptly, but it has an abundant revenue derived from other sources. The Pennsylvania railroad stockholders will be pleased at being relieved of a charge that is equivalent to almost one half of one per cent per annum in dividends. Since the sale was made many millions have been expended upon the properties and in their present condition they have little resemblance to the works of 33 years ago. THE FATE 0?
