Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - December 10, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania mnm NINTH YEAK-NO. 241. LOCK HAVEN, PA., WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 10, 1890. PBICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPBESS CURRENT COMMENT. Wiktbr'9 apparent failore last year was only s temporary saiipension. BusiDess is Taaamed at tlie old atand thia year more briakly tbao ewr._ Ez-Lieuteoant-GoTernor Black has oloacd ao engagQinect wifch the New Yoik World to write political lettera from Waali-iDgton and will be aitaobed to the ^YorM bareau at the National Cap.ttl. DuKiKQ tbia year the dtebureine nificers of the Treaaury will pay out $21,000,000 (or peDeiona. Money paid in this way goea directly into circulation and la widely diairibnted oyer the oonntry. Eassas ia becoming a prolific source of political mOTement�. Iti latest production ia an organization called the Knights of Reciprocity, a seoret order whose central idea ia free trade on the American continent. Tha farmers are laid to lie juinlng it in great numbers. When the extent to which new speou-lative enterprises have been put on the London market is considered, the money panic over there is easily accounted for. Within the past three years there have been put on the London Stock Bicbange enterprises capiulizcd at $1,750,000,000. Tbebe ia a prospect now that the dispute o�er the Cherokee ttrip may be permanently aeitled. A sydicate of oattie-men baa offered the Cherokee Nation, which is the owner of the strip, $10,000,-" 000 for its t'tle, which is $3,000,000 more than was offered by the United States Government. The etrip is about fbree baa-dred and sixty miles long by nearly sixty milea wide, and it is said to he worthless for farming, but admirably adapted for , grazing. Alt. is now confusion in the camp of the Irish Nationalists. Their campaign baa been broken up, their plans disarranged, and, worst of all, their army divided into antagonistic factions. Those w bo predicted that their cause would be aet back fifteen years by ParneU'e obstinacy already tied their predictions justified, for Ibongh fresh overtures will be made to Mr. Gladstone and the Liberals, tbey will be made on behalf of a section of the party only, and, uuleEs reflection shall calm the angry temper of the Patnellites, the new alliance, if made, will be opposed by that faction. Ik the alleeed discoveries of Dr. Eoch have no other result than to stimulate ex-perinsenta by other physicians and scientists in kindred directions, they will result in much good. It Is already announced that an eminent Scoteh pathologist, has been following in the same lino of iuTcsti-gation, and has discovered and secured the bacillus Dr'piirasite which is the origin of canoer. These reports must of course be accepted with proper precaa-tiODS andiTtaerve, but it seems almost certain We are now in the right line for making many valuable discoveries which heretofore bare been but expectations. Adjotast GEHEaAL ha6tisg3' report on the condition of the State Militia is in-tereatiag in more ways than one. It shows tbat the condition of the force at the present time ia excellent, and has been steadily Improving. The cost of the aniioa! en-eampment of the soldiers at Mt. Gretna was about $123,000, which is about 450,000 less than the oost of the encampment at the same place in 1887, and $35,000 less than in 1884. The troops are all armed now with the regulation Springfield rifle, tha same as tbat used by the regular, army. The eoat of the service through rigid economy has not during the past five years exceeded the annual appropriations. The efficiency of the troops was never so great as at the present time. A Boitoa Man's AmazloK Keenest. From QuiK. A BoiitOD mac besought bis wife for the privilege of a latch key. "Latch-key!" sbe exclaimed in tones of amazement, "what use can men have for a latch-key when the Woman's Emancipation League meeti on Monday nigbt, and the Lidies' Domestic Mission on Tuesday, the Sisters ofJeriobo on Wednesday, the Woman's Science Circle on I huraday, the Daughters of Nineveh on Friday aud the Woman's Progressive Art Association and the Suffrage Band on alternate Saturday nights.

It In as follows: O'BBIKN TO PaRSELlf. New'Yokk, Dec. 7. (Uon fid cd tlal.} I �briQk wllb horror Irom taking Rides agamst you in a Btrugglo which opens such an appalling prospect or ruin and dlEgrncs to onr cauEe. Throughout this unhappy buBlness I have absi^ilned from saying one vord personally offensive loyou, and have read with deepest pain and disgust some of the personal attacks made on you. and now hefure Ireland is irretrievably committed tonrulnous conflict, I appeal to yon as a leader that I have for ten > ears been proud to roMow, and as a frlena tor whom I shall fee! a warm aflecilon. Can you not see some way by which, while safety guarding your own reputation, the country may be saved frcm the destruction which threatenii It? parnell to o'DRlEN. Had you wired prior to Saturday some sug-eestlon from me might have succeeded. Now too late for me to rescue seceders irom the false pooitii.n. Shall, however, be glad to see you>nd consult you on arrival in Europe. Id addition to tbe above O'Brien today forwarded the following oablo to Paruell: I regret to flnd mlslendlng version of my coufldentlal cablegram published lu thepresR. Your reply shows a total misunderstanding of my message, which was prompted by my regard for your past services, and by the still ex-Islinff personal aSeclion, and sent with the knowledge of my colleagues here. In the earnest hopes ttatyou might in consonance wl;h the will of the mBjorlty of the party, whose election ofa chairman we bave endorsed. llud a way by which the country xnlgbt be taved from a rulnona contllct. To me your reply leaves little ground of hope, but having regard to the horrible conseiueuces to the country of a prolonged Internecine struggle, I am stUI anxious to have an Interview aud shall start Saturday for France on my way to Ireland. Am communlcstlDg this to the press. Late this afternooo Dillon sent the fol-lon iog cablegram to Justin McCarthy. O'Brien sails Saturday, to convey our viiiws and consult you and your colleagues. We pubriFh to-day full cablegrams with Parnel). Gill will undoubtedly sail with Mr. O'Brien. THE IRISH PAllTY CUISIS. London, Dec. 9.-Mr. Gladstone has written a letter regarding the crisis in the Irish Nationalist partj in which be says there appears to be no question affecting himself; but only an unexplained coutra-diotioQ between ibe Parnell of November, 1890, and the Parnell of all former dates since tbe Hawarden interview. Justin McCarthy, tbe aDti-Parnellite leader, has expressed the hope that the division betwesn the two sections of the Nationalist party will bo gradually bridged. When Parnell started for Dublin a large crowd of Irishmen, residents of t!iis city, bad assembled at tbe railway station, and on the appearance of Pdruell cheered wildly. P.irnell entered the car, and from the wiudow addressed his couDtrymen. lie said: "lam overj'iyed t') sec that you have honored me in Euuh large numbers. Tba demonstration will help me in tho fight which I bavo underUltcn. Over sizteen years ago the IrJahmeu of England gave me the first assistance in framing for my couutrj the path which abe has pursued. From tbat day to this I bave never forgotten your help, never forgotten tbat to you exiles of Erin was due the credit of tho flrstGod speed in the new struggle. You will have no c.�use to re-Kret that you ttjod by mu in those days. You will be witb me to the end, and together we will win for our country what God determined we should get." A number of tba MoCarlby facllon of tbe Irish Parliamontiry party woro on the same train occupying seats in tbu rsar cars, PARNELL in UURLIN. DuuLiN, Dec. 9.-Piunell baa arrived in Dublin. He is tbe guest of the Lord &fayor at the Mansion Uouae. He intends to reorganize tbe National League in Dublin. The Pownpatrick brunch of the National League has adopted a resulution repudiatinR Parnell. Bishop Woodlock has fcfcrongly prononnced agaiatt Parnell. &go.'* That quoted sontf ooe is aa grattfj-ing tn tbe people of L^ck Haven as to those of any other part of this great Commonwealth But take tbe abort seotenoe immediancly following the above quotation: ''Then ihero were no eraded schools outside the Urge cities. Tbe pnpila warn in claHses, tbe bright and the dull ones, the f-low and tbe more advaooed ones, all toeotber." Any pt?i8->D who has reoided in L'>ok Haven fnr mnre (ban thirty years past knows that tbe above statement is not true. The older and the middle aged people of Lnok Haven, then resiienta of this place, remember very well that thor-oa^h^y graded scbno's were opened io tbia town in July, 1S55, under tbe management of Prnf. \. K Browne, of the State of Naw York. That from tb�t time on for a period of mora than thirty five years the rising generation bave bad the advantages arising from well regulated graded Bohools. Tbat many of our best and tnret ratfable basinesi men were graduatei from tboee 83ba(l(>; tbat tboee who availed them-oDlvrs of ihei>o opportaoities became snob men and women as tbe present generation are proud to reoogriiza abd honor.
