NINTH YEA.K-NO. 118. LOCK HAVEN, FA.. FRIDAY. JULY 18. 1890. PKICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KIMSL.OK BKOTHKUS - - - FPBl-ISHltBS CURRENT COMMENT. With 100 gallons of water per day per individual It does seem as if New Yorkers should be able to keep clean and cool. Thkhk were four hundred and twenty marriage oeremonies performed in Camden last month. The main-ohance clergy there aro still carrying on a thriving business. It is estimated by Representative Lodge that the Federal ElecMun bill introduced by him, and passed by the House, will require for its enforcement, should it become a law, an annual expenditure of $10,-000,000. _ SesatOR Fryb, in replying to Secretary Blaine's letter, asked if be knows what Spain would exchange for free sugar and also asks Secretary Blaine if he ean give a list of the artiolea she would receive. The platform of the Tennessee Democratic Convention declares openly and unequivocally in favor of the free coinage of silver. This is ia line with the platforms of all the Democratic State conventions that have met this year. Jojjnstown contains about 2,000 more inhabitants to day than she did before the disaster which drowned 3500 of her people a year ago. Could there be a better msui-festation of Pennsylvania pluck and enterprise than this fact affords? "Tue Federal election bill if it becomes a law, shall be tried in the North as well as in the South," groitU Roger Q. Mills, of Texas. Of oourse it will Brother Mills -that's the calculation-but you don't find the North kiokiog do you? Although it was officially announced a few days ago that the cholera in Southern Spain was on the deo'ine, the litest news emphatically showB that it is growing worse and spreading rapidly. It will be a marvel if it shall be confined to that country. The census enumerators who took the population of Washington are tow being paid off gradually. They are more fortunate than were those ten years ago. There was no appropriation available to pay them until nearly three months after they bad finished their work. Every instance of "heat prostration"- commonly called sunstroke-should operate as a warning against excessive exertion, whether in the sunshine or in the shade, whether Id the workshop or in the kitchen, while the temperature is running high. And likewise against exoessive eating or drinking-especially the drinking of alcoholic liquors. The Sheffield people still seem to labor under the hallucination that by holding mass meetingB and protesting against our proposed tariff bill they may be able in some unexplained way to ward off the evil which tbey think is impending. At a meeting held on Monday tbey resolved to call on the Government to take protective measures against the bill, which they say threatens their trade with this onnntry. Of course, we shall pass the bill all the same. Congress is legislating in the interests of the United States and not in those it Sheffield. A STORM SWEPT STATE. For tbe next few days Mt. Gretna will rival Atlantic City beraelf id the variety and character of her attractions, tihe will have tbe entire National Guard of tfao State, some eight thousand io number, camped upon her green si open, while Uncle Sam wilt send horse, foot and artillery to share iu the mimicry of war. Such an encampment of soldiers is nowhere to be seen in the United States. Along with these will be daily picnic excursions from Lancaster, Ilarrisbiirg, Reading and the-Burrouoding cities,which will fill the vast,wood� with unprecedented crowds of men, women and children.
