Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - January 2, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania EIGHTH YEAK-NO. 258. LOCK HAVEN. PA., THURSDAY, JANUARY 2, 1890. PBICE-TWO CENTS. EVENING EXPRESS KINSLOE BROTHEBS---FCBLISHEB8 CURRENT COMMENT. Witii a few more of tbese winters the old faBbloaed art of skating will soon be a lost one. It is a good sign in the south that the Grady monument fund is already lar ahead of the Jeff Davis fund. TriE Norristown Times says, ' 'a young lady has no need of jewels." It looks as if be had not yet invested in an engagement ring. The story that Mr. Gowen at the time of his death was financially embarrassed is denied by Mr. Alfred Sully, his friend, who expresses the belief that when Mr. Gowen died be was worth at least $750,000. Kate Field says that if a school of deportment for public men were started, the first motto hnng up should be: "Don't sit on your spine." That may be a chunk of good advice, but were it heeded, what a lot of real comfort mankind would be deprived of! Says the Norristown Herald: "The Treasury Department decideB that a cask used in importing liquor cannot be used again in exporting domestic liqnor. Now,lf the Department would only deoide that a man once filled with liquor, could not be used again for the same purpose, the temperance question would be nearly solved." The New York Star eloquently defends the base ball "Brotherhood," and, as it strikes us from a standpoint that can not be assailed. Tbese people certainly, have a right to go to housekeeping on their own hook without consulting the magnates of the national game. Only the ensuing season, however, will determine the wisdom of this new departure. A contemporary remarks: "Happiness is a wonderful beautifier- Don't fret if you can help it it. If you can't, pursue oontentment and sweetness of temper with assiduity." We presume this is intended to apply to the gentler sex. Hen, the gruff bears, we suppose may also take advantage of the recommendation to improve their appearance. The Expbess has received a circular issued by tU'j board of directors of the National Conservatory of Music of America, in relation to the January semi-annual entrance examination of that institution. It is the desire of the board to gather from all parts of the United States pupils whose after labors will advance the cause of music in their native land. Further particulars may be learned of C. I. Pardee, Secretary, 128 East Seventeenth street, New York. ' -� PnvsiciASs who advertise ,lbem-selves gratuitously are rushing into print with remedies for the grippe. Such things should not be heeded. There are rarely two cases precisely alike, and that which may be a specific for one may be injurious for another. The best thing to be done by a person attacked by any symptom Is'to send for a trusted family physician, who knows the constitution of the patient and can prescribe according to a careful diagnosis. Triplet, From Renovo. From the News, December 31. The enterprising Board of Trade at Look Haven has added another manufacturing establishment to its very flattering list of enterprises, in the shape of a knitting mill. Lock Haven's enterprise, for a few years lately, is walking up to a vigorous, soul-atirring tune of ita needs, and is grasping all good chances for improvement that are offered, and seeking chances that do not come around its way; and we predict, ao-years more, she can be counted as some-cording to present indications, that in ten thing in the list of wide awake manufacturing cities of Pennsylvania. A. H. Maun, the Lock Haven lumberman, accompanied by Will Reed, ot the same place, went up to S.hintown yesterday on business connected with the development of that ore vein in "which Mr. Mann is interested, being owner of the tract that hides beneath its snrfaae the valuable deposit. Harry Hall, the able assistant of T. C. Hippie, Esq., of Lock Haven, spent a few honrs at Paddy's Run yesterday, transacting professional business. Some of these fine days we will tell oar readers something about Harry Hall. Don't get uneasy H. H., wo will deal with yon gently. AT THE WHITS HOUSE A Very Large Attendance at tlie President's New Tear's Reception. MANY P0BEIGN NOTABLES PRESENT COMFORTABLE.

"Sweet May," he said, and kissed her brow, "Pray, stlJl such foolish lanclea, (He drew her closer) ibr I'm now In comfortable circumstances." F.lch Costumes Worn by th� Ladles Add to the Brilliancy of the Scene-Mew Tork'a New Tear-A King's Palace Burned-Many Things of Value Destroyed and n Lib Lost. Washington, Jan. 1.-The new year began with a oold disagreeable rain, which continned tbronghout the day, and naturally had a depressing effeot upon those who had prepared a program. The White House, was as nsual, the aentral point of interest. There have been of course many similar occasions at that historic mansion, but those whose memory and experience add weight to their judgment agree that no one of its predecessors has exceeded iri brilliancy the first official reception given by the head of its present administration. Certainly never before has there been at a White House reception such a large and distinguished representation from other nations of the world. This was dne to the presence, in addition to the regular diplomatic and consular officers of other conn-tries, of delegates to the International Maritime Conference and the delegates to the Pan-American Conference. the white house reception. The mansion had been specially prepared for the occasion, and when the reception was at its height presented a spectacle of unusual beauty and Bplendor. The full Marine Band, in gay uniforms of red and bine, was stationed In the vestibule just inside the main entrance, and with but few intermissions played lively and inspiring music from the time the President took his stand at the head ot the receiving line, in the blue parlor, until the last of the callers bad taken bis departure, a period of a little over three hours. The interior decorations, while not elaborate, were very effective, consisting of a liberal distribution of tropical and flowering plants in all the places where they could bo displayed to advantage. The general efleot was also brightened by the brilliant illumination of the parlors, bright gas light being reflected from the myriads of irridescent orystals and numerous French glass mirrors. The reception proper did not begin until 11 o'clock, bnt the Vice President and the members of the Cabinet with the ladies of their families arrived shortly before that hone and were shown directly into the President's presence in the private parlor up' stairs. When everything, was in readiness the President and party descended to the blue parlor and took their places in line. The Marine band signalled their arrival with the familiar air "Hail to the Chief." toilets of the ladies. The toilets of the ladies were singularly rieb and becoming, and were greatly admired on all sides. Mrs. MoKee wore a beautiful dress of white armure silk, with square neck and full elbow sleeves. Her ornaments were diamonds. Her mauner was gracious and cordial, and, added to her delicate beauty, created a decidedly favorable impression. She carried a large bouquet of Catharine Mermot rosea and followed the example of her mother in ac. knowledging general introductions by a bow instead of shaking hands, the President, however, adhered to the precedent and shook bands with each one of the thousands who called. The members of the diplomatic corps were first received. They were presented by Secretary Blaine, assisted by other officers of the State Department. All were in full court costume, and added brilliant coloring to the scene with their jeweled orders and profusion of gold and lace. The most striking costumes were those worn by the representatives of Rnssia^ Great Britain, France, China and Corea. Death.. Joseph H. Boeder, aged 30 years, died this morning at the residence of his brother-in-law,Samuel H. Probst, corner Church and Washington streets. Announcement of the funeral will be given later.

Philadelphia, Jan. 1.-A notice was posted in the composing room of the Prttt last night informing the printers that because of an evident intention of the Union to violate their agreement the paper bad decided to employ non-union men. Those of the present force who desire to remain under the new organization are guaranteed permanent employment. The change takes effect to-day. Meetings of Typographical Union No. 2 and of the Prut Chapel of the Union were held to-day, but nothing of pnblio interest, so it is declared by those present, waa done. All of the locked out printers of the Prat were to-day placed on the strike benefit ($7 per week) until they obtain employment elsewhere. It is said that the Prttt has secured nearly a full complement of men, and that they will experience little or no difficulty in issuing the paper as usual. Messrs. Jones, Plank and others, of thb Executive Council of the International Typographical Union, are expected to return to this city to-morrow, and as they have complete jurisdiction in the matter of a general demand for an increased rate for composition, nothing will be done before their arrival. I-ock Haven's Oldest Paper. A relio of the past In the shape of a newspaper waa laid on our table to-day. It is called The Cluttonian, and is dated August 15th, 1839. The copy before ns is number six, volume two, and The Cli^tosias was edited and published by William A. Kinsloe, an elder brother of J. B G. Kinsloe, who was then connected with the paper, and is now editor of.tbe Clinton Republican. The paper was established in 1838, and was then called The Eagle, as that was the name proposed for the new county, of which Lock Haven is now the county seat. The new county having been organized and named Clinton, the name of the paper was changed to The Clintonian. The Eagle was the first newspaper published in the county, and has been since continuously published under different names to the present time. It is now published weekly as the Clinton Republican. A period of fifty-two years is a long time, and there has been many changes since the time-stained sheet now before us was printed. Stage lines to Philadelphia were advertised in ita columns. The only hotel advertised in the columns of the Clintonian was the Lock Haven Hotel, Algernon S. Fleming, proprietor, and his bonae was known as the Stage Office. Moorehead & Irvin are the only storekeepers whose names appear among the advertisers. George S. Crawford, President of the Board of 1 rnstees of the Lock Haven Academy, gave notice in the paper that James J. Hamilton bad assumed charge of the Institution, where so many of the business men of to-day received their education. There are several WilHamspovt firms' nameB found in its columns, and they offered special inducements to buyers from Lock Haven. The terms of the Clintonian were two dollars and fifty cents per annum. The progress shown iu newspaper printing is illustrated when the price of the little Bix column lour page paper printed fifty-two years ago, is compared with that of the handsome eight page Republican as it now appears, filled with all the connty news and telegraphio dispatohes from all parts of the world. But everything must have a beginning, and when the Republican was founded fifty-two years ago it was a very creditable newspaper, considering the facilities the oditor had for obtaining news.

The tramps begin to get back to winter quarters towards the close of the political campaign.- Tbe last of them are in by election day. Dnriog Presidential campaigns there is a good deal of money in carrying torches and banners in the great parades and the tramps make it a point to get in earlier in thoee years. They get from fifty cents to $2 a night for this work, and have a job every other night. From election day until well iu December is the happiest portion of the tramps' city season. The weather is apt to average rather moderate, the parks are still habitable, and the results of bis election day job, properly economized, insures him against going stark hungry, even when his supplies from ordinary sources run Bhort. Likewise tbey insure him his "booze." What more pleasure could a tramp want? Nothing to do, nothing to think about, enough to eat and drink-a lotus eater could have no more. All the season advances the tramp's life becomes less pleasant. The cold makes it necessary for him to remain under shelter much of tbe time, and the exhausted state of bis exchequer compels him to get out and hustle for at least a part of each day. He becomes at this time a distinctly gregarious beast, and herds with his kind in all sorts of dens. A co-operative good fellowship quickly establishes itself, by which such things as "booze" are procured and shared in oommon by a band of from four to five and a dozen. In underground dens where vile decoctions, in which alcohol is the least poisonous substance, are sold, the tramps gather at night and gnzzle the scanty portions that their money will buy. When cold or daylight drives tbem out again they generally manage to get a morning bracer, by book or crook, at some place where such patronage is especially catered to, and pick up a bit to eat from garbage boxes or at some kindly back door. From one saloon to another tbey drift about during tbe day and in the evening get together again in their dens. It isn't a particularly enjoyable life even for tramps, and with the first zephyrs of spring tbe great majority of them are off for the country again, with its open air and free life, taking with tbem usually a large contingent of half-grown boys or broken down older unfortunates who have a fanoy for seeing life by "going on tbe road.'' Hard as it is and debasing as are all its surroundings, there must be some attraction abont the life of a tramp, for if you ask any of tbe city hall gamins what they expect to do when they grow up the chances aro even that the answer will show that "to go on the road" is at least one of bis ambitions. Choral Society Concert. There was a large audience assembled in the Opera House Tuesday night to hear the Choral Society singers. The program was well rendered and those competent to judge think the music waa rendered in a manner superior to last year. The singing of Hiss Wolfred Gerbart was charming, and won for the lady many words of praise. The concert was a success and reflects oredit on the conduotor, Miss Barrows, to whose untiring efforts the people of Lock Haven are indebted for tbe musioal treat they enjoyed on New Year's Eve. Won by Chance. A handsome musio box chanced off at the Fallon was won by A. S. Pierce with ticket number 12. A valuable horse disposed of by chance was won by Theodore Dornblazer, tbe lucky number being 113. Fell From a Bridge.

Frightful and Harrowing Scenaa-BBnny Res-cned From the Flaming Structure With Difficulty-The Fire Caaaed by an Overheated Stove-Printers Locked Ont in Philadelphia. London, Jan. 1.-The boys' section of tbe paupers' school in the district of Forest Gate, in connection witb tbe White Chapel and Poplar Unions, took fire last night while the iumateB were asleep, and was burned with a terrible result, 26 of the boys who were iu the upper stories being suffocated hefore they could be rescued, while 58 other boys were safely taken from tbe burning building amid terrible excitement. Two of the matrons of tbe institution escaped in safety by sliding down tbe water pipes. Several of tbe boye escaped in the same way. The Superintendent of the school repeatedly rushed through the flames and brought out a number |of inmates. There were 900 persona in the institution. The bodies of those wbo were suffocated were carried to the main hall of the building, which was still profusely decorated with Christmas greens. The fire was caused by aa overheated stove. The female department, in whioh were 2S0 girls, was not touohed. The boys retired last evening in the highest Bpirits, having been promised presents and a New Year's fete today. Tbe scenes in the main hall, where the bodies of the dead boys lie, are bar-rowing. The relatives and school-fellows of those who perished are loud in their lamentations. The fire originated in a clothing room beneath tbe boys' dormitory. Tne smoke and flames issuing from the stove flue alarmed those sleeping on the top floor, and they made their escape. The fire engines were promptly on the spot. Tbe employes of adjoining railway stations rushed to the soene and rendered valuable assistance. The cries of the boys wbo were unable to escape were terrible. The bodies of two boys were badly burned, but it is believed that tbey were suffocated before tbey were burned. Tbe ages of the dead range from 7 to 12 years. A KING'S PALACE BURNED. CHAT BT THE WAV. Sfaoy Things of Value Destroyed and a Lire Lost. Brussels, Jan. 1__Tbe Royal Palace at Laken, a suburb of this city, is burning. Princess Clementine, the daughter of the King, had a narrow eseape from being burned to death.

The Poor Shop Girl,, From the Irish World. Let us see who or what these young shop girls are. They are not possessed of mnch of the world's goods or tbey would not be so employed, but they are all daughters o( honest parents, and possess the hereditary quality of virtue and good looks. Any one might go it blindfolded at any of the counters, select the first girl within reach, and be sure that be had picked out one wbo would adorn any man's home and make him a good, faithful and industrious wife, and a pretty one at that. Behold tho great palace emporium. What life! What activity! What rushing hither and thither! It makes one's heart ache to see these beautiful daughters of penury working from 8 a. m. until night for a few paltry farthings. Yes, farthings! For the books of every dry goods king in New York will show that the salaries paid to tbeir sales ladies average four dollarB a week. Just think of it! Io return for this miserable pittance they aro expected to be attentive, vigilant, polite and industrious. These are indispensable qualities; but there is another which is not the least iudispousable of all tbese qualities: tnoy must dresB well, or at least look neatly. Can any reasonable person suppose that four dollars a wcok is enough to dress these girls and keep alive that celestial 'spark called life? Toil tbey mutt from morning until night, with barely sufficient intermission for their midday meal. BEECH CREEK ITEMS. Miss Flora DeHas, daughter of A. M.
