Lock Haven Evening Express (Newspaper) - December 11, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAR—NO. 242 LOCK HAVEN, PA.. THURSDAY. DECEMBER ll. 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KIHSLOB BBOTHBB8 PUB LISH* RA current comment. The pressure that is being brought to bear upon Congree* to adopt mea*urea for the immediate relief of the financial atrir-geocy ie something pbeoomenal, because it all seeks the same relief, namely, in inflation of the currency. The delegation of irish Home Halers, which is at present swinging around the oirole in this country, seems to be enjoying itself. Why shouldn’t it? Whenever it goes It meets with ovation; it lives on the fat of the land and people are emptying their purses into its pockets. It is reported that Hon. M. F. Elliott will content the election of Bon. A. C. Hopkins to the 52d Congress. The latter was fairly elected and will earnestly defend bis right to a seat he has been honestly ohoeen to occupy. It may be stolen from him, bot he oaunot be ousted iu any other way. Evert year sees new improvements in tbs oars used in transporting cattle to distant points. The Lehigh Valley road ba* jnst put on its lines the latest of these inventions. The oars carry eighteen bead of eattle; the latter san be watered and fed while the train is runnlug, the water troughs sod hay racks being built st the side of the oar. With several millions in gold on the way here from Earope and with Secretary Wiodotn’adecision t) disburse about $10,-000,000 in bood porch asea, roost of which baa already been put out, and with Congreet considering means to increase the circulating medium, there ought to be substantial financial relief bere, and restored confidence. There are many acres of land in certif portions of this country which cannot be farmed and whiqb are next to valueless for any other purpose. The grazing obtained from them is comparatively valueless. If such lands bad been planted in black walnut, implored chestnut or shell bark biokory twenty five years ago they would to day be yielding better rtturns than any other sores ou the farm, while their value from the limber on them would have been quadrupled doling the same time. A CURIOUS statement Qom** (rom London about the effect of the McKinley bill on shipments of goods to this country. Consul General Jobs C. New is quoted as saying that the aggregation valuation of goods named in Invoices for this country is just as large now as before the McKinley bill .went into effeot. The quality and character of tho goods have changed somewhat. It was generally supposed that the McKinley bill would stop some kinds of importations and that the value of goods shipped to this country woald be lessened, bat if London is an example that impression was erroneous. There is but one interpretation to be put upon the deficiency appropriation which has been asked of Congress for $120,000 to famish the supplies to the Sioux Indians under the agreement made with them thirteen years ago. It seems to indicate that these people have not received what was due them and what we promised to giro them. If this money is needed to purchase full rations now, we can only conclude we have not been giv. lag them full rations heretofore. The claim of the Indians, aa we understand it, is that when the last enumeration was made a full census was not taken, consequently as rations are issued only to those on the list, there are many who draw nothing and the rations of the tribe are abort. “A Royal PMI" To-Might. The best reports reach us concerning Mr. Goo. C. Staley, the Get roan dialect •omediao, and his play “A Royal Pass/’ which la the attraction at the Opera Bouse to night.

It is said to be both interesting and arousing. Tbs parsonages of the play are Swiss and Russian. All the parts are correctly and beautifully costumed and interpieted by a oast of special excellence.

REPUBLICANS OI CAUCUS. The Federal Election Bill Debate to Continue for a Week. A PLAN TO FACILITATE BUSINESS. TRANSUE* OF A DAI The Senate Will Sit Thirteen Hour* rn Day la Order to Accommodate Democrat* Who Hart Speeches te Make—Th* Cloture Rule Will be Introduced Neat Week -Ex-Senator R. P. Altern’* Funeral. Washington, Dec. IO.—About forty Republican Senator* were in caucus until a late hour to-uigbt, endeavoring to agree upon soma plan for facilitating the transaction of buwiness in the Senate. There was a thorough discussion of tho present state of.affaire in the Senate, with which general dissatisfaction was ex pressed, but the western Senators wero particularly vehement in their condemnation, urging the necessity of immediate actiou to relievo, the s’ress in financial circles. The friends of the Election bill, how ever, defended tho management of that measure, aud professed their willingness to adopt any feasibto couree to secure speedy action upon it. The result of the deliberations of the jaucus was an agreement that the elections bill should be kept before the Senate for the remainder of this week at least With a view to exhausting the debating powers of the minority the Senate a ill sit thirteen hours daily, from IO a. rn. '.ill ll p. rn., with an intermission for dinner. If this does not avail by the end of the week the caucus committee is to present its clo.ure resolution to another caucus next Monday. The committee submitted two rules tonight, one for the general previous question, and applying solely to the debate on the election bill. They were charged to canvass the Senate and ascertain what strength could be counted ou for the general rule. The opinion expressed at the caucus tonight was that alt bat two, or possibly three, Republican Senators would fall into line in support of I he par'y policy. To meet the viows of tho silver Senators Chairman E Imuini- w as an;l>>r5z»d to ap-point a oorarnitte** of six SeuitorS to net with the Republican members of the Finance Committee in devein* some scheme of financial telief for the country. Thin commiitee will compline Sona; us of divergent views, and is under instructi?*i'S to report a bill to the caucai* n- xt Monday. At that caucus it is understood the policy of the Republican Senator* will finally be determined. If no action has been reached ou the Elections bill aod the cloture resolution commands the support of the united Ro publican Senators, or all but two or three of them, then the cloture resolution will be brought forward. If tho committee fails in its undertaking then the western Senators have been promised that the Elections bill will be laid aside aud the Financial bill pressed to a o inclusion.

The Art Amateur for December, 1890, is at once the beginning of a new volume and a Christmas number, increased in size both in the paper itself and its supplement without extra charge. The colored plates are exceptionally fine and include: A Portrait fcSfudy by J. Carroll Beckwith, being a fac-straile of the “first painting” in oils of the portrait of Mr. Collin, the artist. This large supplement is probably the most important yet issue J of the (list stage of a portrait, showing also as it docs, the grouping and arrangement by which it makes a study into a picture. The large plate of Hobos in a met a1 vase, by Victor Dar.gon, is the favorite reference study in oils of this well known master of flower painting, and as such he declined ti part with the original so marvellously reproduced here. The third colored design is for the plates in rich “Royal Worcester” china decoration in gold aud colors, by H. A. Crosly.

Think of building in a Glasgow shipyard a summer which must be Uken to pierce again before 5,000 African* can carry her over 500 miles of wild Afrlean country aod float her on the inland sea of Victoria Nyariza! A Glasgow corree-Confer-1 pendent of the New York World write* that he saw this vessel on the stocks recently, and obtained a rough sketch of ber. She is the first of a British fleet wbioh Messrs. A. A J. Inglis have contracted to build for the British East Africa Company’* service. This necessity for building the vessel so as to allow of taking ber to piece* again for overland porterage, makes her progress very slow. After she is launched and fitted, all the work whiob is now handled with to rnuoh oars must be undone. Before this ship reaches ber destination she must be carried through miles and miles of African forest* aud jungle* between the coast and the big lake. It is estimated that 5,000 darkies will be squired for the work, with at least 2000 more as relay staff to replace the siok, the runaways aud the unmanageable. The new vessel is commissioned by the Imperial British East Africa Company, of whiob 8ir Wiliam Mackinnon is President This Company will float its own flag, issue its own postage stamps, and coin it* own currency. The first steamer of tho fleet is about 120 toss, builder*’ measurement. She is stoutly built of steel plates, bolted with steel bolts on steel frames. The bolt* will be, of course, only rlvited in their proper botes when the steamer arrives on the shores of the lake. Each plate, like every other part of the steamer, is limited iu size to a load which a negro could carry conveniently on his head, and it is calculated that with their loads, and io their places, the negro caravan will, when marching in file, extend over three miles. The steamer, with it* plating, is put together with bolt* and nut* to be removed when the pails are taken to pieces And packed aboard the railway car* which will carry the steamer m piecemeal to tho dock* at London, where it will be shipped on board the London and Ziczibar direct steamer. Though constructed for purposes of peace this vessel will be armed for rough fighting if it i* necessary. She will oarry au armament of two Maxim machineguns, besides small arms and a b'.se especially fitted to throw boiling water from the boiler among warlike natives. The iron plating of the vessel is, of course, proof against rifle or musket bal’*. On each bow will be A ted up au iron rifle aud conniug tower.
