One of the results of the warfare against tbo Louisiana Lottery Company is that its stock has fallen from $1,200 to (500 a share. s The President has been talking to prominent members of both houses ot Congress and urging them to stand together and push legislation on the important bills now before them. A Portsmouth, Ohio man, by grafting, has raised an apple on a grape vine. What is distressing people in this aeotion of the world is their inability to raise apples on the kind of trees whara thsy ought to grow. _ Tub original package nuisanoe has ooasod to exist. The President signed the bill on Friday, and at onee the saloons in Kansas Bhut up. When they shut up in Kansas, where they existed like unto Bmart-woed in a ten-acre field, it 1b pretty certain that they will put up the shutters all over the country. A Dexter lawyer has given up a practice of $50,000 a year in order to edit tho Rocky Mountain A'eics, which is the moat influential paper between Omaha and San Francisco. Good editors are soaree, and so are $50,000 lawyers. The combination of them in one individual will be something phenomenal. The Anti-Lottery Convention of Louisiana has issued a proclamation to the people of the United States asking their cooperation in wiping out the infamous Louisiana lottery, and giving a history of the formation and growth of the great | swindle. The grant for this infamous schomo was obtainod by bribery and opr nipt moans, and it is by these means it has lived since 1368.

TRAINS BTJNflMG AGAIN ON TIME, All the difficulties connected with Kommler's execution are not yet ended. There are still several criminals in the prisons of New York who are under sen* tenco of death, and the only legal method of putting them to death is by electrocution. But publio sentiment against this method is now so strong that the authori. ties will bo very unwilling to repeat the Kemmler experiment, and it is almost certain that the Legislature will repeal the law at its next session. Before this will convene however, the dates set for the execution of several murderers will arrive, and unless the Governor interposes his reprieve the sentences will have to be carried out.

The Afen Cannot Conceal the Disappoint' tnent Thej Feel Owing to the Ill-Ad vised Movement-The Affected Line* Steadily Gaining on the Striken, and Traffic Almost Restored-Vice Pmident Webb Makes a Statement or the Com paniee Position, and Telle What the Fo-tore Will be-The Knights of Labor to be Ignored. New Yokk, Aug. 10.-The oomplete paralysis of all traffic on the New York Central railroad, caused by the Knights ot Labor when they struck their first blow Friday night, led them to believe that they could maintain the stoppage of bnsi ness on the roads of the company. This they have not succeeded in doing and it is evident that a general feeling of disap pointment prevails among the strikers, though they will not admit this. They placed strong reliance upon the assistance of the Brotherhood of Looomotive Engineers, who,aooording to many of the Knights of Labor, were to have taken a hand ir tbo fight last night. A prominent Brotherhood man said to day that the Locomotive Engineers were not to be in this strike. It was not their fight, but of course, he added, should they be ordered dut they would go. He did not think such an order would be given tratss running again. To-day the regular scheduled passenger service of the Hudson River and New York Central and Harlem roads was resumed, the only change being a consolidation of oertain outgoing western trains. The Southwestern Limited and the Chicago Limited were consolidated and left on the Southwestern's time at 10:20 a.m. The North Shore vestibule limited, which was to hare left at 4:50 p. m., was consolidated with the fast Western express, and left at 6 p. m. All other trains left on schedule time, and local trains Cook passengers up the road as usual. The tie-up on the West Shore road which was inaugurated last night, did not affect passenger traffic. The through Boston trains on the New Haven road left as nsual. Police Captain Moll vain, who is on duty at the Grand Central depot, reported everything exceedingly quiet. Not an arrest had been made, and none of the strikers had been seen around the depot or along the line of the road. "Though all neoeatary precautions have been taken to nip any demonstrations in the bud," be said, "I do not anticipate trouble. It looks very much to me as if the whole thing would be over by Tuesday morning." steadily collatsing. John J. Holland, tho member of the Exeontive Board of the Knights, to-day said that be bad nothing to impart, and was very nnoommunicative. During the afternoon General Manager Toucey, Assistant Manager Theodore Voorhees, John H. Fife, B. A. Lomls, J. J. Loftus, Henry Douglass and John S. Green, the latter of whom are prominent freight officials of the New York Central road, held a conference in the offioe of Third Vice President Webb. At its conclusion it was announced that it had been decided to dispatch tomorrow all frieght trains to their various destinations. The following notice was posted in a consplcous place in the vloinity of the depot: "Persons Beek. ing employment on the New York Central and Hudson River road will please make application at the office of the Wagner Palace Car Company. The result was that applications were reoeived by the score. By one of the officials is was said 150 men had been taken on. Be also declared that all the men engaged were experienced railroad men. Mr. Voorhees said that he had reoeived a number of applications from railroad 'men living aroucd New York, among whom were some employed on the Elovated roads, others from Pittsburg and from men employed in the Erie yards. Some even came from as far West as Chicago. The company had not eDgaged them, as they found they could obtain ail they required in this city. tolicv op the company. Late in the afternoon tho following oir-oular was issued by Third Vice-President Webb, and was the result of tho long deliberation of tbo conferunco hold by tho roads' officials: "The position of the company is this: Wo shall select our own men, and wo do not propose that they will bo designated by tho Knights of Labor or its committees. When men aro dismissed we Bball get rid of tho iocilicient, the most vioious and those loast in accord with our interest. When promotions arc to bo made we "Will not be bound by tho seniority rnles promulgated by the Knights of Labor. A due consideration will always be given length of service but the first and most Important rale will be the qualifica-i ion of tbe men for the place. If our men have grievances, the proper officers will be willing to grant hearings and Bee that consideration is given, but we will not allow outsiders to interfere between the employer and employe. For this reason alouo I refused to allow Mr. Holland to disouss any ditferonoeB alleged to exist between the Company and its men, and not for the reason that we object to our em ployos being members of labor organizations. These are my views and I am satisfied that they are ooncurred in and approved by every offioial of tbe oompany, by its board of directors and by the gen tlemen who are most interested in its se ourities. Tbe strike is ill-advised, cannot snoceed, and we will pat it down and maintain the position we have taken." STlilliKKS HOLD A meeting. Master Workman Lee, of the Strikers Dlstriot Assembly, arrived from Albany at noon to-day and attended a meeting of the Knights this afternoon. More than 3,000 were present. Lee was most thusiastioally received. Reports were re ceived from various local assemblies along the line of tbe road. What they were could not be learned. Late this afternoon orders were issued to the police, made neoessary by an attempt to run freight trains whioh will be made to-morrow. Trouble is not anticipated but Acting Superintendent Byrnes considered that precautionary measures should be taken. IN THE WEST SHOIIE YARDS. At the West Shore depot and about the yards at Weehawken everything during tbe day was quiet, the road Is not greatly discommoded by tbe absence of the fifty switchmen who went out Saturday night. The fact is that of the 100 men employed about the yards and depot but one half were subject to tbe Knights' order. All passenger trains were dispatched, each being half an hour behind the schedule time. Incoming trains were delayed about the same time. Tbis was caased by the delay in switching. None of the strikers were to be Been in tho vicinity. Tbe yards were understood to be well picketed by the strikers to dissuade new men from making application for work. TROUBLE AT HEWITT. The Chicago and North Shore Limited, due at the Grand Central depot at 4 p. m., was tied up by strikers at Dewitt, New York, and is not expected to arrive until 7 o'olook to-morrow morning. There is great trouble at Dewitt, and the military has been oalled out. Tbe employes on a train that stopped at Dewitt took out aud destroyed tho ooupling pins and threatened violence to any men who might go to work. Secretary Hayes, of tbe Knights of Labor, oalled on Vice-President Webb this evening and left a letter from Father Donoey, favoring arbitration. Webb declined to treat with Hayes, aud said there was nothing to arbitrate and the Company would not take baek the discharged men under any cironmstanoes. District Workman Lee said that he arrived from Albany for tbe purpose of taking oharge of affairs, and will make his headquarters at the Grand Union Hotel. He was questioned about the rumored strike on the New Jersey road, and said that he had not ordered it. Ho would neither affirm or deny anything relative to the rumor. At ten o'olook J. J. Holland and Secretary Hayes announced that affairs had taken such shape that they would not start for Detroit at presenr. MEN go out AT LOCKr-OIlT. LocKronT, N. Y., Aug, 10.-About 35 men, including baggage masters, engineers, brakemen, switchmen, yard men and ware bouse men, went out to-day. Two freight trains were delayed two hours this afternoon for the want of Bwitohmon at a certain point, but wore let out by station agent Welch. He thinks he can command help enough to avoid any delay to through trains, but there is likely to be some interruption of local freight business. CALL OUT the VANDEBBILT FIEEMEN.

My son, yon remember reading, not many weeks ago, the statement of a minister of the gospel, a foreign missionary, ono might say, as he is preaching in New York, that be was obliged to go to Europe for a long rest because he was run down by overwork. "I have a hot box,'' he said, and then went on to explain that when a railway train ran too fast or too long tbe oar wheels became overheated, and the train had to eome to a halt and remain at rest until the "hot box" cooled off. "That is what ails me," said tbe good minister. "I am not sick, and I have not broken down; I bave simply been working too hard; I bave been going too fast and doing too muob, and bave a hot box. I must rest awhile; rest is all I need." Now, my son, I hope and I believe chat the preacher is a better theologian than ho is a railroader; he ought to be anyhow. He knew what ailed him; he bad a hot box. But ho didn't know what oaused it he said it was working too bard; doing too muoh. Nonsense, my boy; sheer nonsense; utter absurdity. He wasn't doing half as ranch as beshould bave been doing, maybe. He might bave been the laziest preacher in all busy New York, and yet had a hot box all the Bame. It isn't the speed that makes the journal beat np and set fire to the packing, my son. The box is out of order, thats's what's the matter. I have been shot from Philadelphia to Chicago on the "limited," the drivers fairly throwing the miles away like sec onds, and never a smoking axle nor the loss of a minute on a single mile; and the next day I have boarded tbe Wesley City, Binetown and Copperas Creek Air Line- runs from quarries to Kickapoo sidinr, mixed train, three times a week, 12 miles an hoar-and helped to oarry water from the oreek to pour on a hot box between every other station. It Isn't tbe speed at all. The next time you are whirling along on a lightning express and train stops to doctor a hot journal you will observe, if you please, that there is but one smoking axle on all the train of seven Pullmans- or is the the plural of that car Pullman?- running on an aggregate of 84 wheels. One hot box in 84. Now, tbe 83 wheels that are in good condition were running just as fast as the one that set fire to its paoking; making just as good time, and they are ready and able to keep on making them. The wheel that stops the train is out of order: there's something wrong about tbe wheel, it hasn't been doing a bit more than any other wheel on the train And when it says it has been doing too muoh and running too fast all otber wheels bave a right to squeak on their axles in derision, were they not too smoothly polished and too well oiled to be guilty of such harshness. Take care of yourself, my boy; keep yourself in condition; run regular trips on sohedule time; look after yourself before and after tbe run, and at the five minute stops, and I don't care how muoh you shorten up the time, yon may go as fast as you can make steam and turn the drivers. It isn't the great railways with their well appointed trains, thoroughly disciplined and praotically educated crews that are troubled with hot boxes. You find the hot boxes on the poorer roods that run their expresses on freight train time, and try to save oil by using plenty of water on the boxes, beoauBe water is cheap and they think there is more economy in cooling a hot journal with water that costs nothing, than there is in keeping it cool with oil that oosts money. If a railway train, shooting through the atmosphere like a streak of lightning, should suddenly burst into devouring flame simultaneously from pilot to marker, I shonld be inclined to think that speed and friotioh had something to do with destruction. But when only one wheel in a hundred begins to smoke,, 1 am positive it is the fault of that one wheel-unless it can prove that it was running faster and goieg farther than any other wheel of its sixe on the train. IS LILLIAN WIFE OR WIDOW. Her Rich Husband Goes Up in a Balloon . and His Whereabouts Unkoown. HE IS SAID TO BE WORTH $3,000,000. A Law Suit Replete With Romance-It Is Began by Lillian Morton, an Operatic Star, Known as Mine. Nordlca, to Recover a Fortune Left by Her Hnaband and Which She Clalme la Being Unlawfully Withheld. Providence, Aug. 10.-The last aocno in Mme. Lillian Nordioa's marital experience will be in a court room. She sues for letters of administration on her husband's property and incidentally demands a residue of tbe estate from G. L. Gower, her husband's brother, whioh she olaims he has wrongfully taken. In the early days of tbe telephone Professor Bell used a oircuit between this oity and Boston for the first experiment. A youug newspaper man, named F. A. Gower, became deeply interested in the new invention and eventually went on a lecturing tour with Professor Bell. Gower was a graduate of Brown University and well oonneeted. He mastered the points of telephonio soienoe in a short time and secured a right to introduce it in Europe. He went abroad, and in a few years was rolling in wealth as a result of his venture with the telephone.' While in Paris he met Miss Lillian Norton, an American studying musio, whose voice promised great things when fully developed. She lived with her mother. Unfortunately the Norton funds were about exhausted. Gower was smitten with the yonng singer's charms and married her as soon as he eonld. She proved an expensive adjunct to his household, as the finishing touches in the conservatory and the expenses of her introductions to tho operatio stage were enormous. They lived on a magnificent scale where-erer they went, the operatio bride enjoying all tho luxuries her husband's apparently exhanstless resources oould supply. Suddenly a halt was called. A relative of Gower sprang up with a demand for (50,-000 that had to be met. Mrs. F. A. Gower promptly left ber now impecunious lord, went to the Netherlands and in a short while instituted a suit for divorce in Boston. The grounds alleged were infidelity and criminal acta. She demanded alimony, based upon estimates of her reoent scale of living. It was enormous. Gower, in the meantime, had become interested in ballooning and had placed his affairs in the bands of his brother here in Providence, G. L. Gower. He gave bis brother an absolute power of attorney. Fred went to Paris and tbe last ever heard of him was in a balloon in an aeronautic flight from Paris to London; although there are rumors of his having been seen lately in India. His brother went abroad, bat singularly enough did not find a trace of his money or valuables. The widow was close on his heels but was equally unsuccessful. G. L. Gower returned to this country, invested over $10,-000 in Tacoma real estate, and this prop-ty,whioh is now worth }100,000,isthe bone of contention. Mrs. F. A, Gower, the tuneful widow, insists that the money came from her late husband's fund and rightfully belongs to her. She bos retained Gaston and Whitney, of Boston, to push her claim, who will doubtless accept Oscar Lapham, of this city, as referee in tbe taking of the testimony. .There is ono question of faot and one qoestion of law to be determined. Is she a widow ? PERSONAL PUT CrUNGB. Latest Goaalp and Your The London Gaiety Company Reaped a rich harvest from their American toir, and have oertainly captured Boston, New York and Philadelphia; Miss Nellie Farren and Fred Leslie taking their audiences by Btorm. There seems to be more finish to English artists, especially in the fun making line. By the way, we hear that the "Rinehart Sisters" company, with tho exception of the "Rinebarts," is made up solely of Eugltsh aotuvs and actresses. They come high, but we mnst have them.

Fryer was consigned to tbe tomb in Highland oometery, yesterday afternoon, by six of his schoolmates who bad become endeared to him by reason of his manly conduct. Services were conducted by Rev. J. A. Hollenbacb, at the family residence, No. 3 Pearl street, at 3 o'olook, and were largely attended, representatives from St. John's English Lutheran and tbe 4th Ward Mission Sunday sobools being present, of which schools Walter had been a faithful and diligent scholar. Deceased was the eldest son of Edward B. and Anna Fryer, and was aged 14 years and 5 months. He was an unusually bright'and promising youth, exhibiting such traits of oharacter as won for him tbe admiration and esteem of all who knew him. His death was a sad blow to hie parents and friends, but "God's ways are not as our ways," and all may rest assured that it is for tho best. The sorrowing family have the sympathy of all in their sad bereavement, and would ootnmend them to tho loving Father above, who doeth all things well. x Aboat Too Friends. J. F. Meginness, of Willismsport, spent the morning in this city. R. H. Stewart, of Island, olaims to bave the best orop of tobacco in the oonnty. D. W. Sherman and J. W. C.

They remained in Bellefonte over night and returned home this morning well satisfied with Centre county's cariosity. Panssy'a New York ettevated Depot. This week the Pennsylvania Railroad people will begin tearing down the old station in Jersey City through which millions and millions of people have hurried within the last decade. This will be the partial oulmlnatlon of a radical reform whioh haa been la progress .for some time at this end of. the railroad line between Philadelphia and New York and which when perfected will prove another evidenoe of the favorite Philadelphia boaat that the parent railroad organisation of the Keystone Bute is the greatest in the world. As yon all know, the fun from the Quaker City to Jersey. City is always lengthened in time by the neoeatary slackening of speed when trains are traveling through the populous city on the western bank of the North river. In this age of rush and tumble that sort of thine; wonld not answer the rapid, requirements of the modern traveler, and therefore some months ago the Pennsylvania Railroad people began the construction of in elevated railroad whioh is now almost completed, and whioh in nearly aa long as the somewhat similar atruotare in Philadelphia. Of oourse this makes neoessary the construction of a new - station into the second story of whieh passengers can be transported prior to their being carried across the river. The new atraeture will be built of stone tn its first story but the upper portion will be of wood. While it is beiog erected a temporary station, wbioh will be erected north of ot the present dingy building will be need. The next progressive movement in this direction will be the oonstraotion of a number of double-decked ferry-boat* on to the upper decks of whioh passenger* pan walk from tbe second story of the new building and when the other side of the river is reached, travelers will be able to. walk from these lofty ferryboat* into elevated railway oars whioh will run on a branoh road extending dawn from the Ninth avenue and the Sixth avenue line*.. Special Kxoerslon Trala.. We are informed that the Beeeti' Creek railroad company will run a special excursion from Clearfield, Philipsburg, Look Haven and all points on their line to Wat-kins Glen In the early part of next, month. The attractiveness of VYatkios Glen is well known and need hot be 'enlarged upon  here. Round trip rates for this occasion will be made low enough to be within tbe reach of all. Speoial through oars will be run so as to arrive at Watkins Glen before noon and return after noon the day following. Delegatus to Pittsburg. The delegates who will ropresent the order of P. O.
