Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - August 19, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania tfti>!!f! NINTH YEAK-NO. 145. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. TUESDAY. AUGUST 19. 1890. PKICE-TWO CENTS EVEN IN_G_ EXPBESS KINaXOIS BUOTHEBS---FCBLISHK1:9 CURRENT COMMENT. There ii notbing like a Missouri train robber, for quick and thorough work in bis own line. A Methodist parson in New York State has been discharged by bis congregation bocause be plays base ball. If the farmers of this country will take the word of lb* Free Traders, all they have to do to get rich is to destroy tbe borne market. Cai>tain A. H. Buhke, the Republioaa candidate for Goyernor of North Dakota, comes out flatfooted against any attempt to oharter a lottery in the State. When we consider that the steamer Teutonic, on ber record-breaking voyage, made more than 20 miles per hour, on an average nearly as fast as a railroad train travels, we begin to get an idea of the speed with which she clove the waves. Tub Hawaiian Legislature is discussing an annual subsidy of 134,000 for a line of steamships from Honolulu to San Diego, Cal. Tbe Sandwich Islands want our trade, and are willing to pay the cost of getting It. If ws want the trade of othe: nations we will have to do likewise. POWDERLY ON THE STRIKE. He States the Grievances of the Men to Vice President Webb. INTERESTS OF CAPITOL AND LABOR. TaB Post-office Department has decider! that tbe public can make postal sards o: its own, by sticking one cent stamps upon bits of pasteboard. As the one cent stamps will cost as ranch as the orthodox cards, it is hard to see where there will be temptation to take sdvantago of this decision. The comparative failure of the Kansas corn crop, which seems to bo certain, according to tbe report of the Board of Agri-oulturo of that State, will be fell far beyond the Stato limits. As is well known, corn is tbe great crop of that Commonwealth and the farmers' main reliance. One-third of the average yield, which is all that is now claimed, will be likely to bring widespread disaster on ber people. Speakek Reed appears to be too smart for tbe fly lottery lobby in Congress. He does not propose to let tbe lottery btll go before the House on final passage unless be is certain there are enough members to secure its passage. This does not suit the lobby, which wants to have the bill taken up when the opponents are not present in foroe and defeat it. Speaker Reed is working In tbe interest of morality, and the people are with him. Congressman O'Neill bis reported from the committee to whioh the Plumb resolution for the transfer of General Grant's body was referred a unanimous recommendation in favor of its passage in the House. It ib likely that it will be passed unanimously. The same unanimity is apparent throughout tbe country outside of New York, and it is by no moans certain now whether most of tbe New YorkerB are not coming to the conclusion that tbe resolution is a wise one. The census gives New York State a j population of 5,998,G93. Pennsylvania's' population is 5,393,003. In the decade between 1800 and 1870 New York State gained 12.9 per oont. and Pennsylvania 21.1 per cent. Between 1870 and 1880 Pennsylvania gained 21. G per cent, and Nevr York 15.9. Now New York gains 18 and Pennsylvania 20 per cont. The Washington Observer says that twenty years ago Hon. Thos. J. Bingham predicted thit in forty years tbe population of Pennsylvania would exceed that of New York State. Acccording to the progress this State has made daring twenty of these years the prediction will be verified within leas time than tbe period set for its fulfillment. Bow a Trout Gets It4 Color. The color of a trout's back depends on the color of the bottom of the rivor, but the tront which grow rapidly differgreatly in spots and color from those which grow slowly and thrive badly, and a middle-aged trout differs in color from an aged trout. Speaking generally, tbe young, boaltby, fast-growing fish will have silvery sides, white belly and plenty ol well-do-fined spots. The poorly fed fish will have few or no spots, a drab belly and muddy-yellow sides. Tbe old trout will be much tbe Banjo In appearance, only more so, and will be particularly lank and large-headed. This accounts for those trout whioh have access to salt water being brighter and more beautiful than those which do not. the variety and abundance of their food Date them so.-American Angler.

What I Showu by the Correspondence Between tbe General Blaster Workman anil Vice President Webb-If tlie Men Were DiemlftHed for Caase They Slave no Complaint. New Tent, Aug. 18.-The correspond enoe that has taken placo between Vice President Webb.of tbe New York Central, and Mr. Powderly, General Master Work man of the Knights of Labor, shows that Powderly wrote Vice President Webb, re questing an interview for to-day, to whioh Webb replied suggesting that the matter to be presented be put in writing, but granting an interview, if Powderly so wished. Mr. Powderly replied that boiug called away from the city he was obliged to oommit to paper what ho would rather disouss in person. He states the position of the men in this reply in these forcible words: "If I am correctly Informed old and faithful employes of the New York Central and Hudson River railroad have been summarily dismissed from tbe Ber vice of the company because they wero member* of and aotive in the Knights of Labor. It is represented to me that up to tbe time of their discharge they were faithful to the Interests of the company, and that not one mark of discredit stands against tbe industrial record of any of those who were discharged prior to August Stb, 1890. That in brief is the statement of tbe men. The frequency of dismissals left but little room for doubt in the mindB of tbe men that they were all in danger of discharge at a moments notioe, and hence the strike. wnuuE the roiST hinges. "The whole question binges upon the discharge of the Knights of L*bor because they are suoh. If it oan be shown that these men were working injury to their employers, right-minded men will say they were treated as they deserved; if they were discharged for cause the New York Central and Hudson Rivor railroad has everything to gain and nothing to lose from an investigation; if they deserved dismissal from the service of the company uone of us will look for their reinstatement. If, however, they were displaced because of their connection with the Knights of Labor, it shonld be known, for if it is to be the policy of the New Y'ork Central and Hudson River Railroad Company that no Knights of L>abor are to be employed, then a statement to that effeot will clear all doubts, and there oan be no future misunderstanding. There will be nothing to arbitrate so long as you bold to that opinion. THE INTERESTS OK ALL, "The interests of tbe public, the interests of tbe ownors of the company you represent and the rights of the men to organize for self protection, are all involved in this contest. Tbe polioy of the order of the Knighte of Labor is to work peacefully in this line of educational and legislative reform. It is not the policy of the institution, no matter what its enemies may say, to enter hastily upon a strike. The present strike ma}* be pointed to in refutation or that last assertion, but until an investigation into the case of our cause is had that must remain a disputed question. While the hundreds oi cases that have been peacefully and quietly adjusted through tho intervention of the Knights of Labor, although not heralded broadcast as they would have beon had they ended in strikes, prove that our aim is to avoid Btrikes rather than to preoipitate tbem. The interests of tbe pablio require that tho freight and passongor traffic should work smoothly. The interests of the company require exactly the same thing, and in addition to that such traffic proves remunerative to the interests of tho working people tbe same as the others, but their right to organize and seleot the organization they wish to belong to is as fully as dear to them as their pecuniary interests can possibly be. AIM OP TUK KNIGHTS. "Here is an organization, the aim of which is to work for educational and legislature advantages, called upon to defend its members who up to the timo of their dismissal had worked only in an eduoational and legislative direction. Surely we have a right U question why they were discharged. Each, man, no matter bow bumble, is ub muoh a part of the public as any other man. True, tho New York Central nr.n Hudson itiver I r-iitroad is tribiiUr;' 'o the comfort and ] volt being of llio community, Imt 1 ho � cnomvtnHy pives 1? tho eorponvtiun in j ur.ePtion its �tren;jHt and -.voalLii. ind of 1 i'tat ('omm'tinty at !y;t-element of society that dare not organize for their own welfare. Somo one haB said since this strike begun that money is not everything In this world. lie was a railroad director, I believe. He epoko truly, for liberty is far dearer to the laborer and that is what ho struggles for. That is what is denied him when ho is discharged for boing a Knight of Labor. VALUE OF LSEE11TY. "It liberty was once valued bo highly that men offered up life and treasure and sacrificed honor to gain it, surely their children would not be blamed for striking for it. Whether they struck wisely in this case is yet to be determined. Who is to determine? You may feel that yon are right; the men may feel that they are right; both are partisans, and if an im partial verdict is reaohed impartial men must arrive at it by hearing both tidea and then judging. The men are willing to submit tho case to arbitration, and will not bo unreasonable. Will you oonsent to do tho same ? If you will agree to sub mit this matter to arbitration we can meet to arrange the details and agree bow the parties may be selected. The newspapers report you as refusing to admit that arbitration can enter into the settlement of the trouble, but your letter leads me to believe that you were misquoted, and I still hope for a speedy termination of the strike through arbitration. I shall return vb, at 2 o'clock. The Demvcatic -rotrvs of this city will uni!'. in i;:iRUtt ur. Thui>:d�7 pvonbag, to ceni'nr.'e ''�!�;;?'.,:� to bo voted for at thn Twenty Stun* Service. Xit.

GOTTEN TTP m A READABLE POEM Accident to Two Young I*dies-Saturd�7 Night's Attraction-Balloting For the Teachers-Struck by Lightning-Twenty .Tears Service-Democratic Primaries- At Earon'a drove. A band car on the Philadelphia and Erie railroad collided early this morning with a buggy at the Henderson street crossing. In the buggy were Miss Annie Friedel, of this oity, and Mt�s Flora Kunes, of Wil-liamsport. The litter had been visiting Miss Friedel, who was taking ber to tho depot in order that she might return to her borne in Williamsport on Sea Shore Express. Miss Friedel was driving, and just at tbe moment when the baggy was fairly upon the tracks the hand car, whioh was approaohing from the west, struck the vebiole and overturned it. Both tbe ladies were thrown ont and tbe horse, frightened by the shook, started to ran away, but was caught by some men who were close by. Neither of the ladies wero much injured bat nere both badly shaken up and frightened. Hiss Kunes proceeded on her way home, and Miss Friedel when seen by the reporter was at ber desk In the office of Friedel & Denworth's agricultural implement store, where she is engaged as book-keeper. It was a singular accident and resulted fortunately as the ladies might have been seriously injured. Balloting* for the Tesctaere.

Tbe f ollowiag brief sketch of the sermon preached by Rev. J. A. Wood, Jr., of this city, Sunday evening at Newton Hamilton oampmeeting is taken from the Altoona Irilune; Text, Acts ili, 19. "Repent, ye, therefore, and be oonverted, that your sins be blotted out when the ".time of retreabing comes from the presence of the Lord." lu the accomplishment of the work of salvation there mast be a union of Divine and human agencies. The part of man in the accomplishment of his salvation la repentance and faith. The necessity of repentance is sufficiently evident from the Scrip-tares. "Tho times of this ignorance God winked at, but now oommandeth all men everywhere to repent." What Is this work of repontanoe ? What muBt we do in order to repent to meet the demands of tho Bible with reference? In order to truly and evangelically repent there must be a conviction of sin, suoh a conviction as to convince ns that we are blameworthy and deserve punishment. It is a heartfelt sense of guilt attendant upon erimioality. How deep must be this condition? There must be a dear perception of duty. We need to uso our common sense in religions things as in business matters. Many men, when they oome Into the oburob, leave their sense at homo. We need, in the work of repentance, a knowledge of oar oaaditloa. This knowledge is not obtained by feeling. Our environments have muoh to do with the intensity of out feelings in the work of repentanoe. Innocence needs no repentance, Ignorance cannot repent. Tbe second item in tone and evangelical re-peniuuoe is sorrow. A true sorrow arises from a knowledge of the criminality of our nctri. A falao sorrow is occasioned by a fear that oar conduct may exert an ad-verco iuflueuce with roferanco to ourselves. AH sorrow which is not ^toward God is a false sorrow and will lead to death. How deep must he tbe sorrow that will lead to repentance. It mutt be. deep enough to lead to the confession and forsaking of sin. Many sorrow mocb but their sorrow does not'lead Wright action. Where there is genuine repentancosin is not condoned. Truo repentance in its result" leads to the making right of wrongs inflicted upon others. It will enable a man to make re&titu* tion. Before God can pardon we must comply with the conditions required of us. God requires of us sorrow for sin and a purpose to forsake it. Repentance is a work for ns all. Repent or perish is an injunction to all. "Let the wicked forsake his way and tbe unrighteous man bis thongbts, and let him return nnto the Lord and he will have meroy on him, and to our God for He will abundantly pardon." COOL DRINKS IN SUMMER. How to Always Have Cold Water Withont the Use of Ice. It is well known by those who have only a smattering of scientific experimental knowledge that rapid evaporation produces cold. It is upon this principto tbat all ice machines are made. The inhabitants of all hot countries know how to cool their drinking water, oven in tbe hottest weather, if tbere is sufficient movement in the air to cause even a gentle breeze. Tboy fill a porous vessel with water, leaving it in a draught of air, and In a little while the water in the vessel is cold and refreshing to the palate, says the Herald of Health. A gentleman of experimental turn of mind, so situated that tbe delivery of ice at his rooms would be more a source ot trouble than convenience, and familiar with Mexican metbodB of cooling water, has been enjoying tbe luxury of cold water, even daring the torrid weather of tbe past few days. He thought at first tbat he would depart somewhat from the primitive method; therefore he procured a oommon bean pot, glazed on the inside- one of the big-bellied ones with a narrow mouth-and filled it with water. Then be covered this with an anglazed flower pot upside down. This worked fairly well, but it necessitated the constant wetting of tbe two earthenwares, whioh was an inconvenience; it called for tbe expenditure of too much time; therefore he discarded the bean pot, plugged up the drainage bole in tbe flower pot and filled tbe pot with water. Then he covered the pot with an ordinary tea plate, set it In a larger plate on three little blocks, so as to have free circulation of air all aronnd tbe pot. The refrigerating apparatus, complete and tally primed, was set on the window sill, not exposed to tbe sun, where there was a strong draught. He has had good cool water ever since withont the slightest expenditure for ice. Carious to know the difference between the temperature of tbe water and the air of his room, be placed a thermometer in the water on a hot day. A thermometer in tbe room registered 80 degrees, while the morcury in the water rose to only a little above 50 degrees. Anybody can bave water cold enough for refreshing drink by adopting this plan. Struck by Lightning. B. M. Kepler's residence at Sbintown was strnok by lightning about 6 o'clock last evening, knocking off one of tbe briok ahlmneys, also one corner of the portico in front of the dwelling. Tbe Renovo Neics says tho family were all in the house and Mr. Josoph Hall and family, and family of Mrs. F. S. Bittner. All hands wero considerably shocked but cone wero hurt.
