Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - July 12, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania ,rm rr, S3 Km. NINTH YEAU-NO. 113. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. SATURDAY. JULY 12. 1890. PBICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINS'.A)K HKOTHKKS---PUBLISHERS CURRENT COMMENT. Wiie:; the Luuieiatm Lattery pays $1,240,000 a year Stato tax, tbe chances of its pat-rouu drawing blanks will be largely increased; but the foo! and his money will cou:it.ue to bo parted by the loltory ticket. It i.s the duty of au Americau Congress to Jeg slate for the interests of American workiiigmen, not for the interests of the laborers at Sheffield or Birmingham. But tbe frea trade prcs? hasn't found it out yef. Mu. Blaim:, who is quietly rcatiug for the summer at Bar Harbor, uud the good-natured Sir Juliau Paucolotee, who is en joying life at Washington, does not seem to be worried by the prospects of war over the B. bring Sea question. JoitN' W. Mac hat has issued a reward of $1,000 for tbe detection of. the person or person? flho continue to circulate the &t>y ry that his wife was a Nevada washerwoman when he married her. People who uever heard the tttory will now be askin; what i: is and why it worries the Mackays. Ouii Democratic) brethren of the press are beginning tbe campaign by publishing the names of this and that more or less important man who will not support Mr. Delaoii'ttr. As the meu mentioned seldom vtte the Republican ticket at any rate, and only control their own vote when they thiuk ofit, wo see uo reason why any ono should be uuUuly excited over the matter. The Arkansas Republican Convention by indorsing the nominees of a State labor union convention, has taken a step toward uniting all the honest men in that State for a restoration of liberty and bonest balloting. Tbe State government of Arkansas is branded with political assassination, and any alliance that will turn it out of power will be a progression toward popular rights. Turn the murderers out.' �x Senator Wallace has packed bi.s gripsaclt for a trip to Europe. The fair inference is that the Wallace Democrats of that rotate will go a-fi�bing on election day. The Senator is an anti Cleveland mau at J was defeated for the Gubcrna-norial Domination by the Cleveland fol lowing. In going a-fishiug his friends will only follow a Cleveland example. Reports from Delaware varify the previous impressione that the peach crop there this year is a failure! This is occasioned not so much by ihe mild weather last winter as by the frosts of March,which nipped ;he early blossoms of February. It was hoped that the summer heat might save msuy of the trees and that the fruit bearing would be ample. But mich is not the fact.

The work of grading on tbe new railroad from Ferncy, this county, on the line of tbe Philadelphia and Erie Railroad, to Waterviile, on tbe Vail Brook, is in progress having been beguu several weeks ago. Mr. William Boyer, the Superintendent of the new line, states that at least six miles of tbe road will be built and completed this fall. The work was begun a short distance from Feruoy, and the pi.u1 will by completed frum Fern-sy towards Waterviile. A portion of the line ruus close to what i.s known as the old Carrier lumber road, A huge portion ol the company'a lands ar-? located in Grugan and Gallagher townsbi;>s, and it is altogether probable that there will bo an important station at some point in Gallaher township. "How old is the postal service?" "Well, nearly as old as tbe world. You know tbe first male was started in the Garden of Eden." Men, Women and Children Struggling for Life in a Confuted Mais-Many Drowu-etn, of Thursday.is Mr. Marcus It. Mayer, origiually of San Francisco, but now of everywhere. Bis father is an immensely weilthy man, and one of tbe officers of tbe Alaska Seal Company, under tbe aj^is of which Marcus was,for a little while] pro-vailed upon to remain But, having a will of his own as well as a private and personal fortune, he soon turaed his back upon Behring's So a and its furry inmates, and took to theatrical management, as a a full-grown Beat takes to deep water. Associating himself with Mr. Henry E. Abbey, Marcus bad charge at various times of the professional tours of Adeline Patti, ChrisUno Nilsson, Sarah Bernhardt, Mis. Langtry, Mary Anderson, Ellen Terry, lluirj Irving, and Josef Huffman. So much traveling had ho to do at the shortest couceivahlo uotico that be gicw to be a living time-table of tho entire American railroad system, aud can at this day tell you the precise second the express leaves K ilamazoo for Osbkosb as easily as ho can spot the steamer which is due it Vera Cruz on the 21st of next October. Such is his unfailing good nature Lhat be is willing to yivo the most tremendous odds to a friend, wlulu such is his luck that he never lu.ses u hot. Ho only took to "playing boise*" at the beginning of [his bcasou, aud embarked upon the dangerous deeps of tMiuine speculation with, out a particle of experience. Yet his winnings have heeu phenomena), uud those who know him declare that since last April his galus have amounted to $10,000 or $18,000. AU of his spoils are devoted to tho entertainment of bis friends, and it is easy to tell when Marcus is in town by the brisk extra business imposed upon Delmoniuo's and the Hon*man House. Learning, as he does, every spoken language with ligbtuing rapidity, bis intimates when themselves abroad are not a particle surprised to bear him chatter in French in Cairo a few weeks after they knew htm to be delivering speeches of thanks to Braziliau students in tho purest Portuguese. Mine. Patti declaies that Marcus is her ideal of a cosmopolite, and Henry Irving vows that if he were dropped out of a bal* loon car in tbe smallest town in Thibet, Mayer would at once recognize au old friend in the head man, and know by Instinct where to get the best dinner for the most money. For it is one of Marcus's accomplishments that he can order an expensive breakfast in any extant tongue as well as pay for it afterward without deigning to look at tho bill. But the latest exploit of thin poiyglot nomad, erst of San Francisoo and now of the universe at large, easily places him at the bead of American gamesters, when one considers the character of his wager and its dimensions. About six woekB ago Jim Williamson, who used to bo the juvenile comedian of Wallack's just after the war, and is now the manager of Australia, with a bank account of at least half a million, sat in a Sau Fraucisco club room with Mayer. Their talk rau upon their plans for tbe summer just on them. "I can't leave 'Frisco," quoth Marcus, "until the 9:b of July, but I expect to be in Paris on the 24th." "That's rather a bold expectation on your part," said Williamson. "I know things havo changed a good deal since my day, but I can't swallow that. From Frisco to Paris in fifteen days! No, sir; you'll never do it." Mayer rubbed bis moustache with his finger and thumb, his usual expression of confidence, "I'll bet you anything you like," be said, "that I do it." Outsiders, bearing the debate, were drawn into it, and when tho wager was registered and mutually accepted all round it took this shape: Williamson and twenty.three friends- many of them theatrical celebrities and all of them amply able to redeem their obligations-were to take a fortnight's leave of Mayer. On July 24, precisely at five o'clock p. m., the twenty-four gamesters are to be in a private room at tbe Cafe Anglais, in Paris, awaiting dinner, the service of which is to begin at half-past five. The cost of the dinner is to be at the rate of 150 francs a cover, and there are to be 25 covers, one held in reserve for Mayer. Between five and 5:30 Mayer is to appear at tbe Cafe Anglais and take the place reserved for him. Should he do this Williamson must pay for that particular dinner, aud on following days tbe twenty-three other betters must each in turn foot an equivalent bill. That is to say, if Mayer reaches the Cafe Anglais in time, Williamson and his twenty-three brother skeptics will have to provide, one after another, twenty-four dinners for twenty-four diuevs, at a cost for each dinner of $720. On the other hand, if Marcus should fail to make his entrance into the Cafe Aug- j laisbetween 5 and 5:30 p. m.oa July 24, he will have to give twenty-four dinners to twenty-four people, at an aggregate costof $720x24,which,as everybody knows, i will be $17,280. Although it was not so stipulated iu the protocol, Mayer has declared his iutention to rely absolutely upon ordinary modes of i travel, and not employ special trains or boats or any other extraordinary device. By general cooseut, his movemeuta are to be kept secret, and until be shall have I arrived in Paris nobody will know tbe I precise moment of his departure from San Francisco, or the name of tbo steamer on which ho will sail from New Yoik. i INSPECTING THE NORMAL.

Many reasons why you should use steam for business, comfort, health, cleanliness, safety aud especially for ita sanitary benefits. AU those who are situated along the steam line in this city should use steam. Stores, dwellings, churches and schools everywhere find it indisrensible. Shall our health and comfort be entirely disregarded when to add so small an additional expenditure as steam to our cost of living the remedy is found for health, and danger from fire in buildings avoided ? Owu-era living in their own property should not hesitate to put in steam fixtures at once. They improve their property to that extent, and Urns make life bearable. And all progressive landlords when asked should cheerfully put in such fittings for their tenautB, aud for tbe purpose of reducing fire risks, &c 3 and for generally improving their property, aud all liberal tenants should be willing to add a fair inteio&t to their reut ou tbo ooat of such fixtures. The above are all plain, substantial and positive facts requiring only some decision on your part to obtain them. Can you afford to go through another year* without steam ? All inquiries answered and prices given upon application to tbe below named Space Measurement Com-mitte, F. M. Ross, Jos. Gkafius, C. M. O'Connor. Saturday the Chrlitian Sabbath. In view of the desire on the part of many to know wby the Seventh Day Ad-ventiBts observe tbe Seventh or Saturday as the Sabbath, and also in view of tbe fact that they believe at least a partial reply is demanded to jumerous sermons which have been preached here in the city in opposition to them, they have finally decided to deliver three sermons on tbe subject, beginning with this evening; also tomorrow at 2:30 and to-morrow evening at 7:45. These sermons will be delivered by Elder J. W. Raymond, the President of the Penn'a Conference of Seventh Day Adventists and they will involve a discussion of the law of God and its nature, tbe institution of tbe Sabbath and an examination of every text in the New Testament in which the First day of the week is found. * A Boy'* Prunken Frolic.

Distillery Started in the West With a Cap! Ul of �3.OOO,O00. Chicago, July 11.-J. D. Her, a well known Western brewer, is preparing to establish, a large distilling industry in opposition to the Whisky Trust. Be is in Chicago oow lor the purpose of selecting machinery for a distilling plant to ooat nearly 83,000,000. Such an establishment would furnish all tbe spirits and alcohol that tho trust now has trade tor independent of the threo outside houses. It is the idea of Mr. Her not only to put up a big distillery but to combino enough industries with it to warrant tbe establishment of.a small western town. This, with tbe profits from Mr. Iter's breweries, would keep the distillery afloat even if tbe Trust gave away its produots. It will be in sucb shape that tbe enterprise can meet the terms of the Trust at any stage.' The plant is to be established on the Missouri river, at some point in the heart of the oorn belt, bat Mr. Iler declined to make tbe location public with more exactness pending tho pnrchaso of necessary land.
