Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - February 22, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania EIGHTH YEAR-NO. 302. LOCK HAVEN, PA., SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1890V PRICE-TWO CENTS. EVENING EXPRESS KINSr.OK KKOTHKK8---PUBLISHKKS CURRENT COMMENT- If the Government does Dot bunt down and punish the ruffi-ins in the South who are interfering wi:h postmasters and shooting at anb killing United States Marshals and other Government official*, it will certainly bo derelict in its duty to the people of tint section of country. The Philadelphia Press is too much for the Timet on the free wool question and fully shows up the Utters' inconsistencies and change of base from a few years ago. The Press' facts and figures are convincing and fully meet the Times' sophistries. Protection has a vigorous champion in the Press. A New York correspondent of the Puil ' adelphia Bulletin says that the publishers of the Sun, World and Times are working vigorously towards increasing their price from two to three oents. It is tacitly ad* mitted that at the present rates the publishers do not get the value of the white paper back. The Kentucky militiaman, unlike those of some other States, is not a holiday soldier, but at times has hard work to perform in hunting down persons engaged in feudal wars of extermination. They will likely be called on soon again, as the Howard-Turner feud shows signs of "belching forth" once more. What a pity Daniel Boone and his band of exterminators are not living. As an easy, convenient and acceptable means of remitting small sums through the mails, there is nothing so bandy as fractional currency. It can be made to cover any amount- There is too much red tape and too much literature on a postal note, and it costs money besides. It requires blanks and clerks to look after it. The fractional currency dispenses with all these and fills the bill exactly. The cattlemen have once more been ordered to leave the Cherokea strip. Perhaps in two or three years more they will get another notice to the same effect; but that has nothing to do with the('time w-byn , they intend to leave, which, from all we can discern-taking past actions of the cowboys as a precedent-will be just as soon, and not a minute sooner, as they see proper to do so. Ihe Government says go, and the cattlemen go-when they get ready. No epidemic ever over-ran the country with the rapidity which characterized the grippe. A few weeks were sufficient for it to cover all Europe and it crossed the ocean with the fastest steamers. From the moment it obtained a foothold on this continent it began its conquering career. As quickly as the wild winds could bear it, it went from the ocean to the Kocky Mountains and a few days more sufficed to take the entire continent in its embrace. It beat all previous records. There are now in tbem'm�B anil prisons of Siberia to day-over four thousand miles from borne and civilization-some of the most cultured, high-born and worthy citizens of Russia. Hundreds of scholars, authors, bright young students, and women of great intellect are dying by degrees in tbat terrible clime, simply because they dared to speak privately, without plotting, in the social circle of a griuing despotism. Is it any wonder the resources of science and civilization are invoked to teach the fearful lessons of dynamite? Perhaps the silliest red tape measure the Post-office Department ever inaugurated was holding letters on which insufficient or no postage had been paid and no tifying those for whom they were intended tbat they would be forwarded upon the receipt of the lack in z postage. It was simply idiotic. Serious delays have occurred in this way, and losses have been entailed. PoBtmaster-General Wauama-ker recommends such letters be forwarded like the rest and double postage be collected at the other end of the line. That is common sense. The suitability of some people is remarkable. The strange occurrence oat in Susquehanna county a few days ago illustrates to what extent men and women can be imposed upon. A farmer and his wife were fleeced out of 2,700 by "spiritualists" who said that a deceased relative was in great need of some money and clothing. Such a story is flimsy enough to warn anybody that those telling it are Bcoundrcls, Preaching to people does no good, or at leaBt It will not teach all to distrust the too affable stranger. There will always be plenty of work for the fool-killer. FEBSONAL FKNCILINGS. Dr. R. Armstrong has returned from his visit to Philadelphia, and this morning resumed biB professional duties. Mrs. T. P. liynder, ofMilesburg, Pa., formerly of this city, will enjoy the distinction of having a number of her poems appear in the forthcoming edition of "The Poets of America." NNEWS OF THE NATION A Delegate Who Failed to Pay a Visit to the Pope, A OEUKOH SOASDAL AT BUFFALO The Trouble ia Sc. AddelUworth Polish Catholic Chnrch Culminates in the Amit or One of Those Selected to Lay the Hatter Before the High Authorities of the Faith. "Buffalo, Feb. 21.-A warrant has been issued on behalf of the congregation of tit. Adellsworth Polish parish, for the arrest of C. II. Nowak, of Mt. Pleasant, Pa., vice Censor of the Polish National Alliance on the charge of appropriating to bis own use $800 of the funds of the congregation. The offense constitutes grand larceny in the first degree. Sometime ago the money in question was subscribed by the congregation for the purpose of sending two delegates to Rome, to ask the Pope to interfere in the difficulty pending between the parishioners and Bishop Ryan, with regard to the removal of their priest, Father K law itter. Mr. Nowak and Father Cicbocki, of Pittsburg, were the delegates selected. Ministerial duties prevented the priest from undertaking the journey, and the duty was left to Nowak. No word of any kind was received from Rome, and suspicion was aroused tbat Nowak bad not started. A messenger was sent to bis home in Mount Pleasant, where Nowak was found. He claims that the money was due him on account of a transaction effected between him and Father Klawitter. The parish then decided to prosecute him. A meeting of parishioners was held last night, and it was decided to send another delegate to Rome. THE TRADE REVIEW. What the Weekly Report of Dan & Company Shows. New York, Feb. 21.-Dun & Company in their weekly review of trade, say: While the prevailing impression in business circles is rather less confident than it was a week ago, there are several signs of i mprovement. Cooler weather has caused a little more activity in some lines of trade; wheat is a little stronger, and without clearly defined reason there is a firmer tone in the eastern iron markets, while the reduction in the bank of England rate from 6 to 5 per cent., with its large gain of $4,315,000 gold during the past week, diminishes the chance of inconvenient demands from abroad. On the other band, general trade is nut increasing in volume. or in profits, and while itB soundness is indicated by the occurrence of fewer failures than were expected, as the result of phenomenally unseasonable weatber, the oomplaint of slow collections is common and rather increasing. Coal is very dull. The business failures occurring during the week number for the Uuited States 230 and for Canada forty one. For the corresponding week last year the figures were 229 in the United States and forty one in Canada. AMALGAMATED TROUBLES. The Men Divided on an Issne and � Strike and Trouble Ensue. Pittsburg, Feb. 21.-Members of the Amalgamated Association employed at the Schoenberger's mills in this city are divided as to compliance with an order issued by President We ihe. Fifty men have quit work and some of these have assaulted others who refuse to quit. The police have been called upon to protect tho loyalists, and tbe firm has appealed to the courts to restrain tbe deserters from interfering with its business or the men at work. Some time Bince a worker named Murray was suspended. About fifty fellow emplojts in the Converting mill struck agaiDst suspension. President We ihe ordered the men back to work pending an investigation. They refused to obey, and it is probable they will be expelled from tbe ranks of the Amalgamated Association. SHAM- VALLEY FORGE BE PRESERVED 111* Fire at Toledo. Toledo, Feb. 21.-A fire early this morning destroyed tbe establishment of Breckenridge & Company, tin box and fruit can manufacturers; Smith & Halde-man, elevator manufacturers; Borth's junk shop, and considerable damage by smoke and water was caused to the People's Tboatre.

An Ameutlmettt to a Bill B�f��re C�n�rw�� WooJd Dolt/ From Ihe Washington Post. A brewery company is negotiating for a strip of land at Valley Forge with a view of parceling it out in bu.lding lots and establishing an immense plant for the manu facture of beer. This proposed desecra tion of Washington's famous camping ground very naturally calls forth a strong protest from the temperance people, and they are calling on Congress to take some action looking to the preservation of tbe entire camping ground, and thus save it from tbe sacrilegious brewery. The preservation of Valley Forge can ba placed on much broader grounds than our temperance friends have outlined. Ab long as the Uuited States government pursues the laudable and patriotic custom of pieserving intact its historical grounds Valley Forge should receive attention and ampli appropriations at the hands of Congress. The headquarters building and tbe land immediately surrounding it have been acquired by patrioic citizens of Pennsylvania, and they st:md ready and anxious to co-operate with tbe government in any practical movement to preserve the whole camping ground. Owing to its un-desirability for agricultural purposes, tbe original earthworks have been but little disturbed, and reasonable appropriations would make it attractive and at the same impart to it a broader national interest than it now enjoys. There is now pending in Congress a bill to appropriate a few thousand dollars to preserve and keep in repair tbe headquarters building and the grounds immediately surrounding it. With an amendment and an increase in the amount appropriated the whole of the historic ground could be prt served; snd there ought to be enough patriotism on the part of Congress to see that this is done. The New Tork Sun takes the extraordinary viow that Valley Forge ''furnishes no special incidents of great consequence to commemorate, like tbe battle of Gettysburg field or the great declaration in Philadelphia," and that "allowing this land, like so much other land on which the patriots camped and fought, to go to ordt nary uses, would not imply either local or national forgetfulness of their service. Yet here was applied.the supremest test, the truly triumphant teBt, of American patriotism. Nor Concord, Lexington, nor Bunker Hill, is of more enduring memory, more worthy of monumental honor, more rich in sacred association. Well says Lossing, the historian: 'Valley Forge! How dear to tbe true worshiper at tbe shrine of freedom, is the name of Valley Forge! There in the midst of frost and snows, disease and destitution, liberty erected her altar, and in all the world's history we have no record of purer devotion, holier sincerity, or more pious self-sacrifice than was there exhibited in the camp of Washington. The courage that nerves the arm on the battlefield, and dazzles by Its brilliant but evanescent flashes, pales before tbe steadier aud more intense flame of patient endurance, the sum of sublime heroism displayed at Valley "Forge. And if there is a place on tho face of our broad land whey-on patriotism should delight to pile its highest and most veneratiug monument, it should be in the bjsom of tbat little Vile on the bank of the Schuylkill." Grand Lodge Meeting. The twenty-first annual session of the Grand Lodge of A. O. U. W. of Pennsylvania, will be held^at] Williamsport next week, commencing on Tuesday. Br. George Eadie will represent West Branch Lodge, No. 231, of this city. About 300 delegates are expected to be present. The A. U. O. Workmen was instituted in 1868, by John J. Upchurcb, with seven members in the city of Meadville, Pa. Its advantages soon become known, and tbe result Is tbat the order to-day claims 20,000 members in the Keystone State and 300,000 throughout tbe United States and Canada. Contrary to the general belief that the order is connected with the labor organizations, it is an order whose objects are to improve the moral, social and intellcoual condition of Its members, by means of lectures, essays, discussions of inventions general mental activity. In addition to this, it Is a beneficial organization, its members being enabled to secure benefits ranging from twojto five thousand dollars, at a very liveral rate. It is expected that tbe Select KuigbU will be present in full uniform. To Institute a Commandsry. General John F. Reynolds Commandery, No. 50, P. O.

GRINDSTONE CLUB FILLING Their Frat Annual Banquot at tbe Fallon House Last Nis;ht.

Washington, Feb. 21.-A decision by the Inter-State Commerce Commission in the case of the Pittsburg, Cincinnati and St. Louis railway company, against the Baltimore and Ohio railroad company, was announced to day. The complaint in this case alleges that the Baltimore and Ohio railroad company has adopted and has in operation party rates, so called, whereby parties of ten or more persons such as theatrical parties traveling together on one ticket, are transported at two cents per mile, which is less than tbe regular rate for a single person, said rate being about three cents per mile and that said company also sells tound trip excursion tickets without publicly posting the rates at which said tickets are sold. The Commission in its deoision holds that passenger excursion rates are required to be published according to tbe provisions of section six of tbe aot to regulate commerce; that party rate tickets are not commutation tickets, and when party rates are lower than contemporaneous rates for single passengers they constitute discrimination and are illegal. Tbe Baltimore and Ohio Railroad company is therefore required to immediately cease and desist from the sale of party rate tickets, and ordered to print and poBt excursion rates for the safety of the public Two Lives Lost by Fire.

Description .of the Series Placet! on Sale In FirMt-ciass Ofllces To-day. The new series of postage stamps were placed on sale at all first-class postoffices to-day and soon will become familiar all over the country. It is likely they will be placed on sale in Lock Haven early next month: The new series comprises the same denominations as tbe series in present use to meet existing rates of postage. The stamps differ somewhat in form from thoBe in present use, and are about one-eighth smaller in size, the engraving measuring three-quarters by seven-eighths of an inch. Tho following is a description of each stamp in the new series, namely: One cent, profile bust, [after Rubricht, of Benjamin Franklin, looking to the left, on an oval disk with dark background and narrow white border, immediately above which, set in a panel conforming to the curve of the disk, are the words, "United States Postage" in "White capitals, and immediately below which, in slightly larger and shaded letters, arranged in a waved line running nearly tho whole width of the stamp are the words "One Cent." Just above these latter words, on either Bide is a white numeral of tbe denomination-the Arabic Ggure "1"-in a small oval space, surrounded by an ornate scroll, the upper portion of which is connected with and serves as a support to the panel around the medallion. The whole is placed upon a distinctly lined oblong tablet, seven-eighths of an inch high by three-quarters of an inch wide, with beveled sides and bottom. The ooloris ultramarine blue. Two cents, profile bust, after Houdon, of George Washington, looking to to the left on an oval disk. The surroundings of tbe medallion are the same as in the one cent stamp, with the necessary changes and letters representing the denomination. Color, carmine.

H. Perry. Tbe issue of the new four and five-cent stampB will be delayed for a short period on account of tbe difficulty experienced in producing acceptable portraits of Lin-coin and Grant. It is expected, however, that the new series will be completed by the issue of these two denominations early in March. Meanwhile the department will continue to furnish four and five-cent stamps of the old style as called for. There will be no changes in the current special delivery, postage due or newspaper or periodical stamps. Neither will the stamps on the stamped envelopes or on the letter-sheet envelopes be changed, for the present at least. A Healthy Two-Year-old.
