Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - July 24, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAK-NO. 123. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. T HUBS DAY. JULY 24. 1890. PBICE-TWO CENTS evening EXPREBis FRESH FROM VARIED FIELDS ~....., v., ___PFKT.TNHGK8 KINSIA>E imOTHERS^- FUBLISHEKS CURRENT COMMENT. The comoo Odraoorata du not like the Lodge bill is because they fear it will tfia-lodge them. There is no good reaaou wby the earued land-si ants to railways should uut be confiscated and restored to the public domain. These lands are some 4,G00,0U0 acres in extent and cau be profitably dm-poaod of to settlers. In the list of States, according to the new cenauB, New York will be firBt, Pennsylvania second and Illinois third, leaving Ohio to hold the fourth place. It is not known yet what has been the rate of increase by New York and Pennsylvania, Watebspopts and landslides in Italy add to the disturbing and destroying work of the elements, and tourists, findiDg the railroads swept away, have been forced to continue their journeys in carriages Half Tyrol is declared to be submerged, and the floods are sweeping over a large portion of Europe, causing great destruction to the crops. EsoLian foresight is gettiog to be almost a6good as Yankee 'cutenesa. In an tioipaticu of the inorease of the duty, on tin-plate a British syndicate has purchased the uewly-diacovered tin mines near San Jacinto, California. If they cannot make money out of the Americans by - selling them English-made goods, then they will do it by controlling the source of production here. The Boston Herald administers a deserved rebuke to its fellow Democratic papers vith reference to their oharges of extravagance against tbe Republican Congress. "In arraigning them (Republicans) for the destruction of the surplus," says the Herald, the accusers pass beyond safe ground and take up a position which cannot ba maintained on any evidence as yet discernible." The Herald then analyses the pear's finances in round numbers, and concludes that "nothing tbat has been done as yet raises tbe probability that a surplus of $113,-000,000 will be destroyed in a single session." So long as France and Germany discriminate against American pork, Spain against our Hour and Great Britain against our cattte and beef, it ill becomes those nations to protest against our tariff bill. Tbe United States does not discriminate against any of the products of either of these countries; we prohibit none of them from coming to this country, yet Great Britain will not allow a single bullock from the United Spates to land on her shoreB, while Germany and France do not permit a single pound of our pork to reach their people, even though it is better and 50 per cent, cheaper than their own. The greatest growth-of population in the South, as ascertained by the census, has been in the coal and iron towns. Birmingham, Alabama, has now 27,000 people as well as a populous suburb, while ten years ago it had only 3,000 people and no suburban population worth mentioning, Chattanooga has 45,000 people and ton years ago it had only 13,500. Roanoke, Clifton Forge and several other southern ' towns have also grown phenomenally the last ten years. Northern enterpriser and money have contributed largely to the increase in population under tho stimulus of the protective tariff policy of the Republican party. America'* Richest Actor. From the Epoch. The richest a'otor in tbis country to-day is Joseph Jefferson. Edwin Booth is supposed to have more money, but tbis is an error. Mr. Booth has earned large sums, but, whilu modest enough in his own life, he has expended them generously, and besides has disbursed a fortune to liquidate the indebtedness incurred during bis disastrous managerial career in New York oity. Mr. Jefferson on the other hand, , has been a steady accumulator. From tbe time be began to make more than a j living as an actor he has saved some of the surplus. lie has lived well, but not, extravagantly, lie baa provided generously for his family, but not wastefully. Such Inveatmrnts as ho has made have been wise ones, and whatever speculating he may have indulged in haB averaged a profit. Nobody but himself knows how much he la worth. lie probably knows it to a cent, for, while not penurious, be is exact and business like. One of the men closeat to blm, and certainly moBt conversant with bis business, remarked the other day tbat Jefferson must be a millionaire, if not doubly so. Probably the single million in nearest to it. The New York Striking Cloakuiakers Cause Some Excitement AIT OUTBREAK MADE LAST EVENING The Apartment of Cella Bander the Scene of the Disturbance-They Acted Like Madmen-Only One of the lUoters C% tared-The Police Fallj Alive to the Situation.

Oh etna, July 23-This has been a day of ceremony at Camp Hartranft, the presence of Governor Beaver, State Treasur-erBoyer, AuditorGeneral McCamant,President of the Senate Penrose, Senators Delamater, Brown and Thompson, and other S.tato officials, making it necessary for the guardsmen to put their best foot foremost. The morning was spent it brigade drills and in aoperate batallion evolutions. At five o'clock this afternoon a review of the entiro forco in camp, including tbe United States Army Bcction, waB given in honor of Governor Beaver, who was on horseback with his staff. General Snowdeu aud staff accompanied tho Commander in Chief and with their trappings the reviewing party presented a brilliant appearance. Tbe weather was auspicious, and the sun boing hid behind a cloud made marching pleasant. When the procession started with the U. S. A. division on tbe right, theftbou-aands of spectators covoring the slope rising from Lake Conowago cheered to tbe echo. The pageant was the most imposing ever seen at this military resort, and it will bo diffioult to surpass it to-morrow, when the division will agaiu be paraded in honor of President Harrison, Secretary of War Proctor, Major General Sohofield and staff, and other military dignitaries who will arrive in camp about 2 o'clock to-morrow afternoon. General Gobin had the lino picketed and thrown cut along South Mountain, thrci miles from camp. It mado a line at least a mile in length, and videttcs at the road crossings and meu on post thoroughly performed their duties; it was a most satisfactory experiment. This evening pickets were detailed from the First Brigade. At 9 o'clock tonight an exhibition was given by tho United States Signal Corps from tbe summit of Governor Dick," the mountain overlooking the camp. It was an interesting trial, and watched with great interest. Lnst night there was a reunion of officers and men who wero stationed at Johnstown after the flood. Colonel Spangler presided and Colonel Fatton was secretary. Interesting speeches were made by General Hastings, whose remarks were at times very pathetic, and Chaplain Maguire, of the Fourteenth Regiment.

McSwigan, of the Pittsburg Dispatch was appointed a committee to prepare a list of the newspaper men who wero In tho Conemaugh Valley after the calamity.

All tbe Lato News anil Views of the Oity Up to 3:00 P. II. GOTTEN UP IN A READABLE POEM Colonel Corbin'h Compliment. A. splendid compliment was paid to Pennsylvania's citizen soldiery by Col. Corbin, U. S. A., when asked what he thought of the Mt. Gretna camp. IIo is Assistant Adjutant General of tbe United States army, and has been detailod by the government to inspect the National Guard in camp. "1 don't know when I've seen such a fine body of men camped in the field," he said. "Their Holdiery bearing is fully up to tho standard of the regular army. While I don't like to particularize any particular organization I am inclined to believe that the Third Brigade has physically tho best appearanco and that hor men will make the best soldiers. 1 have found it as my experience with the militia tbat tho best soldiers are mado by professional men. Tho cavalry of the Pennsylvania National Guard I consider exceptionally perfect and made up of better material than the regulars, and the only advantage the latter bas is in the training of their horses." Coming from such an authority these opinions ar* very encouraging. U. A. It. Encumymeiit at Hob ton.

A quack, having invented a wonderful hair Invigorating Quid, applied to an editor for a testimonial. He gave it in these terms: "A little applied to the inkstand bas given it a coat of bristles, making it a splendid penwiper at little cost. We applied some to a tenpenny nail, and tbe nail is now the handsomest lather brush you ever saw, with beautiful soft hair growing from tbe end of it, some two or three inches in length. Applied to the doors tones, it does away with tbe use of the mat; applied to the floor, it will cause to grow therefrom hair sufficient for a Brussels carpet.
