Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - February 8, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania
Mil til EIGHTH YEAR-NO. 290. LOCK HAVEN, PA., SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS. EVENING EXPRESS lONSLOK KKOTIIKUS � . FUI1MSHKK9 Kl/XNINO ON HI9 MKBITS, It is publicly acknowledged by tbe Dem. ocrats that Joseph GraGus, the Republican candidate for City Treasurer, has mide an excellent official and has coodacted the office in-a highly satisfactory manner for the past four years, to the people generally, irrespective of party. Oar eBteemed contemporary the Daily Democrat, even admits that "Mr, GraGus is a very gentlemanly aud obliging official, as well as an honest administrator of the office." Now that all agree as to bis capability for con ducting the affairs of the office, why should he not be retained fur another two years: Mr. Grifius is running oo bis merits and the fact of his being a candidate for the third time is nothing to his disoredit and the attempt fro make capital for his oppo nent on this point wit! fail. It is a high comjrlimeut to Mr. Grafius' past record that he secured the uomiuatiou of the liepublican City Convention for his third term aud the tax payers intend to re-elect him. When he took hold of the office city o rders were at a discount but now they are at par aud have beeu for some time. They are as good as any gilt-edged security at the banks and only a few days ago the First National Bank cashed over #800 worth of orders in one day. Such a thing as this was not done before Mr. Grafius took hold of tho office, unleBS the holder submitted to a heavy discount. This is only one of many reasons that can be enumerated for keeping an official like this in offiee. It ie to the interest of the tax payers to keep him there; the best interests of tho city will be subserved by reelecting him and it is the duty of all good citizens, who have the welfare of the city at heart, to vote for Joseph Grafius. CURRENT COMMENT. It seems that Speaker Reed was right; at least the Democrats are left. Speaker Reed has a backbone made of American iron which is protected by tbe admiration of his fellow citizens. Mr. Mills thinks the majority should rule only when it is Democratic; but then, Mr. Mills never thinks real thoughts. Centre county has not inflicted capital punishment since 1818, but unless all signB fail, she wil! make op for lost time tbiB year. Nellie Blt will lecture. This disapproves tbe theory that there is anything extraordinary about the young lady. Nellie is only human, Wuex Mrs. Cleveland was in tte White House she was treated with tho greatest courtesy by tbe Republican press. In marked contrast is tbe treatment of Mrs. Harrison by the Democratic newspapers, to their shame it must be said. It is authoritatively stated that Robert E. Pattison will take the Democratic nomination if it Is tendered him. He is tbe strongest candidate tbe Democracy could nominate and in the event of the forced nomination of an unpopular candidate by the Republicans be would have a good fightiDg chance to win. No wonder Englishmen are shocked by the frivolous character of our American newspapers. A New York journal depicted the august nine of the United States Supreme Court as a negro minstrfcl company in the first part and printed beneath a Supreme Court song and dance. When such liberties can be taken with our solemn Judges what becomes of national dignity ? Geouge W. Ciiilds and A. J Drexel, of Philadelphia have started a fund for Samuel J. Randall, the veteran Congressman, which now reaches the comfortable proportions of $50,000. His seriously impaired physical condition, which excites the gravest fears of his friends, will make this fund a grateful contribution Mr. Randall's long public service entitles him to sucb recognition from bis neighbors, who know him to be a poor man, and tbe fact that be has never accepted gifts of any kind during bis career, or even contributions to his campaign expenses, makes this movement specially meritorious. _ The Democrat intimates that the prominent Democrats mentioned by the Express as mistaking Mr. John J. Shaffer as their candidate for City Treasurer were Republicans, if Maj. John Wynne, the President of tbe recent Democratic Convention that nominated a City Treasurer, and A. W. McCormick. Esq., the recent Chairman of tho Democratic City Committee are Republicans, tbe public, as well as tbe Express, will be astonished to hear it. And yet both these gentlemen thought tbat John J. Shaffer, a staunch Republican for years, was the Democratic candidate for City Treasurer. Although John J. Shaffer ib not a candidate for City Treasurer, Jo>epb Grafius in, and Messrs. Wynne and McCormick will do themselves honor by casting their ballot for him on tbe lSth iust. His record as an honest and faithful official stands out so J clear and prominent that no man can jnake a mistake by voting for him, I WHO, SNOW AND SLEET The Gale Leaves Death and Destruction in Its Wake.

SKOW AND SLIDES," Asulani>, Ore., Feb. 7.-The extent of the damage done by tbe late rains to the Oregon and California railroad between here and Roseburg, 150 miles north of here, cannot be estimated even approximately, but Is very heavy. Tbe railroad from Grant's Pass to Blosaburg is reported oue continuation of slides. Tbe streams all over Southern Oregon are reported as high, if not higher than in 1861. A report reached here late last night from Glendale of an immense slide on the railroad half a mile south of the West Fork in Cow Creek Canyon. The slide came from a high mountain down to the bottom of tbe canyon, a distance of 800 or 1,000 feet, covering tbe track and filling tbe canyon. The report says they arc standing on the slide the same as tbey were when it started from the summit. Tbe water, backed up in tbe canyon for a distance of three miles, is 500 feet wide and from 50 to 75 feet deep. Tunnel Three is completely buried in water. Tbe creek is trying to cut through tho slide, but tho earth is jammmed in so tight tbat bo far it has not given way. Telegraph linemen built a rafc yesterday and will try to act a lino across the lake that has been formed. TUK OIRL WHO IlINTa. Most Hen Know the Little Charmers to Thutr Borrow. New York Tribune. Naturally you didn't mk him, and yon would be very indignant indeed if anybody suggested that you bad forced the poor fellow into bringing you flowers, candy, or taking yon to the concert. No, you didn't ask him but yon couldn't have been any clearer about it thau you were when you looked into his eyes in your most beseech!n? way and told him how anxious yoo. were to hear the great violinist, how BWeet you thought violets, and you did wish for a pound of chocolate. He didn't want to get any of these, he hadn't tbe money to spend for them; he doacn't get a very big Balary, he is trying to keep himself out of dept, and yet, be-oause he is generous and can't resist a pretty girl you have forced him into a dishonest position. That's it, in plain English. When tbe end of tbe week comes around he is $10 short in his money, a little bit on his board bill must wait, his laundress cannot be attended to, and the money that should go home must be apologized for. This is his first step towards not doing his duty and you have made him take it. The American man is generous, and when he has tbe money he wilt invite you himself without you suggesting to him what you like, or what you think be ought to do. Besides the barm you do him, you are making yourself vulgar. He bas a perfect right to go away and say that he doesn't want to visit your house any more, because you hint and hint until he has to take you to some place of amusement, or make you presents, and that, for his part, ho cannot afford it. Continue as you are doing and after a while you will get the reputation among men of being a very undesirable girl to know, and certainly no man who has beard of your reputation to "get things out of men," will want to ask you to be his wife. Better stay at home forever than go self invited; better never smoll a violet or a rose, than rorgefc, in your search for them, tbat it is tbe modesty of tbe violet and tbe digDity of ibe rose that makes thee pre-emioent among the flowers. Attend to It To Day. Ha n't you better pay tbat gas bill today ? Yon might forget it Monday and thereby forfeit tbe 20 per cent, discount. It is worth looking after. A Father*! Tribute. Dr. A. N. Baub, in a recent number of his paper the Educational Nexes, editiorially pays the following beautiful tribute to the memory of his daughter, the late Mrs. James W. Brown: 'This was his first born, a bright, cheerful, bappyyongu woman of twenty-eight, active and vigorous in both body and mind a bride of but thirteen months, but, now, alas! stricken down in the perils of childbirth and already consigned to the tomb to sleep the sleep that koowsno waking. The editor's sorrow, inexpressible in words, must be his excuse for transferring the editorial work of th� weekiTto other hands. May God, in His infinite goodness, have pity on him and all others on whom this sad bereavement falls! Sympathy from all sources has poured from overflowing hearts, and only those who have felt its healing balm can understand the gratitude of mourning friends in this bitter hour of trial." Judge Linn's Condition. Tbe Williamsport Sua of yesterday says: Tbe case of Judge Samuel Linn Is assuming a peculiar form which is puzzling tho doctors. He appears In good health, but as for walking or using his limbs, he has little control over thBm. Judge Linn has now been confined to his room continuously for seven months. PERSONAL FKMJMNOS. Capt.

The first genuine snow storm of tbe season began yesterday shortly after noon, and continued all the afternoon. The wind blew keen and biting from the northeast, and as tbe feathery particles descended and covered the ground everybody was in the best of spirits over the prospects of sleighing, and an opportunity for the lumbermen to get the log crop on the banks of the streams. About nine o'clook sleighs made their appea^auce on the streets, and tbe merry jingle of tbe bells made music that was sweet to tbe ears of all who heard it. Later in the night the snow changed to rain, and tbe mercury went up to a degree not at ail winter like. A telephone message to tho Express from Clearfield says tbat snow felt there to the depth of four inches.

Louis Republic, bas io bis possession tbe ring tbat ouce graced the finger of Pope Pius IX. Tbe ring is now tbe property of Mr. Robert Baguall, of St. Louis, who accompanied Father Phelan on his recent trip to the Eternal City. Father Phelan yesterday told a reporter hoTT Mr, Bagnall acquired this, in Catholic eyes, priceless relic. The late Pope directed that upon his death all his possessions, even down to bis jewels aud clothing, be eold at public auction, and the proceeds be given to the poor. In the face of spirited bidding from the College of Cardinals, a wealthy Roman lady secured the ring. At tho time Father Phelan and Mr. Bagnall were in Rome this lady, beiug then in greatly reduced circumstances, made overtures to them through a third party for tbe sale of the riDg. The lady's ofler was gladly accepted, and Mr. Bagnall becan.e the pui chaser of tho jewel at a round sum. Father Phelao satisfied himself that it was the pontifical ring from the assurance of Mgr. Ricoi, major domo for Pope Pius IX, now Cardinal Ricci. An accurate description of the ring is well-nigh impossible within the limits of this article. It is a massive seal ring, with an exquisite emerald setting, surrounded by 102 smaller stones, diamonds, sapphires, pearls and rubies. Aside from its sacred associations the ring possesses an intrinsic value of many thousands of dollars. Surrounding the emerald are twenty-six pearls, extending around tho sides are twenty diamonds, on each side of the emerald is a small solitaire surrounded by brilliants; on the corner facets of tbe seal are twenty-four stones, following the same arrangement, being set io triangular form; below the double row of diamonds on each side appears a ruby and two sapphires. Tbe entire arrangement is in perfect artistic taste, and the jewel is worthy a place in a royal collection. The workmanship on this ring is estimated at $1,500, and the emerald is worth $2,000 at the lowest valuation, Mr. Bagnall and Father Phelan are justly proud that this priceless jewel has found a place in this country, but they bad some difficulty in koeping it, for, when a high church official obtained a glimpse of it, demand was at once made that it be not allowed to be taken out of the country. Archbishop Croke was almost inconsolable when be learned that he could not keep the treasure, in his beloved Ireland. February Floral Hints. At this season everything begins to tbink of spring, and the plants in your window will start into new aud vigorous growth if given half a chance. Stir the soil in the pots. Give them all the sunshine possible, and as much fresh air as can safely be admitted. Shower them daily, and see tbat no insects are allowed to collect and work on tbe new shoots. Give a watering with liquid manure ouce a week at least,- twice is better,-to all that are making new wood, and repot those needing more room for tboir roots. It is quite important that tbis attention should be given now, as a shift later ou will interfere with the growth of the plant for a time, and everything calculated to check its steady development should be avoided. Do what is necessary before the plant gets much of a start. Bring up your Fuchsias from the cellar and repot them, cutting the old branches back at least half, if that was not done when you put tbeta away in tbe fall. Give plenty of water, a good light, and a rich, well-drained soil. Tbey will soon break freely all over the old wood, and by March they will be covered with uew shoots aud healthy foliage. Those who persist in keeping their Fuchsias in the living-room all winter know very little of what this plant is capable of doing if given a complete rest for three or four mouths. After such a rest it will mako an astonishing growth in a short time, and be loaded down with flowers, a good share of the summer and fall; but if kept iu tbe light aud heat all winter it will grow tall and spindling, and be weak, and give but few blossoms.-Eren E. Rex ford, in Ladies Home Journal. Church Supiier. The members aud frieuds of the Presbyterian Church will give a su;.per at the Cedar Springs sohool house on Saturday evening, February 15ih.

ESCAPADE OF A PRINCE The Duke D'Orleaiis Lands on French Soil and is Arrested, VIOLATION OF THE EXPULSION LAW An Unsuccessful Imitation of the Coup d' Etat of Napoleon III-The Would be Kins of the French Falls Into the ClatcheB of the Military Authorities and Stay Have Serious Trouble. Pabis, Feb. 7.-By prompt action the government to-day nipped in tbe bud what was apparently intended to be a royalist coup d'etat, modeled after Louis Napoleon's mad desceut upon Boulogne, and the ooly consequence is that the Duke of Orleans, eldest son of the Count of Paris, is to-night in custody. Tho Duke arrived in Paris to-day bearing a letter written and signed by the Count d' Paris announcing to tbe faithful and to all others the Count's abdication. He also had with him a manifesto addressed to the people of France nominally, and accord, ing to tbe theory of tbe pretenders a pretender is always a king, and therefore the Count of Paris abdicates the throne he never possessed. He consequently abdicates his claims as a pretender and in vir-tue of this abdication all his claims, rights and titles descend to his oldest, son. the young pketendeb. The young gentleman now in the hands of the authorities is Philippe Loaia Robert, Duke d'Orleans. This gentleman is therefore not merely one of the many vagrant princes, but the actual pretender to the throne in virtue of bis claims as heir of Louis Philiippe, and also as the heir of the old Bourbon line. His coming into tbe country in violation of tbe law banishing all the heads and direct heirs of the reigning families is a rash escapade, if it stands alone. Tbe fact that be was equipped with an appeal to tbe nation shows his intentions and may make the escapade serioas for him, if it should be developed that the movement is made in virtue of an understanding with tbe partisans of the Monarchy in Prance, It may be more than a violation by tbe laws of expulsion. There is some reason to believe that th3 movement is made in concert with the more determined opponents of tbe Republic, as the Duke repaired immediately to the House of Duke De Luynes, the present head of a family that has always adhered with an. compromising heroism to the old Monarchy. In tbat house he was King of France in theory, the descendant of Henry IV, and not merely the descendant of Louis Phillippi. On February 5 the Duke of Orloans attained the age of 21. the youno mas? abbaiqned. After arrest be was taken to the prefecture of police, where his identity was fixed beyond all doubt, and where the process verbal of bis violation of the law of banigbment was drawn up. In tbe afternoon he was arraigued before the military authorities. In response to an nquiry as to the objects and purposes of Lis visit to Franoe, he said that having attained hiB majority be bad come to France to place hiro6elf at the disposal of tho military authorities. This dash of audacity is regarded as a very happy stroke,aud is sure to make friends for him, but it did not touch the sensibilities of the authorities, and tbe Minister of the Interior ordered that tho Duke be held in ous-tody. Tbe further disposition of the oase will of course depend upon whether it is discovered that there wan any plot for a general royalist movement behind tbis incident. a question ok tdk people. Everybody in Paris remembers that the Royalists of France were at a given moment ready to rise, but that Henry V., obstinate, would not face the peril of placing himself at tbe head. The people are now' asking themselves the question whether tbe young Prince bas now come into tbe land of bis fathers in response to a similar invitation. This is the only view in which tbe oase bas a serious face. Aside from this it seems only a mad boyish prank. Not One Iu Ten Of tho people you meet from day to day has perfectly pure, healthy blood.

It cures scrofula, salt rheum, humors, boils, pimples, and all other affections caused by impurities or poisonous germs in tho blood.
