mum NINTH YEAR-NO. LOCK HAVEN, PA., MONDAY, MARCH 24, 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS. EVENING^EXPRESS 1 r� m mm m ggflgg BROTHERS---FDBLI8HEB8 CURRENT COMMENT. There isn't a oountry in the world in which ram is not a peril to good order and a curse to tbe individual. A bill baa been introduced into the Legislature of Ohio to provide separate schools for colored children. The newspapers of Baltimore have just figured out to their satisfaction a population in the city which exceeds 500,000. TnE recent shipment of 25,000 tons of American steel rails into Mexico is another Republican fact that hits freo trade theories squarely between the optics. Edmund A. Bigler, the Democratic candidate for State Treasurer last fall, declares there cm be too much lurmony in tbe party, and he wants to see a contest for the nomination for Governor. The new State of Washington falls into line for the ballot reform. The Governor has signed a bill which provides for tbe adoption of the "Australian" system- which is rapidly becoming- tbe "American system." Progressive euchre playing for prizes is gambling and punishable as such, if a Missouri Judge's decision is worth anything. As it may be the opinion of Judges in other States, it will be well for players to look out". The great strike among the coal miners of Great Britain lasted only a few days The mine owners acceded to the demand of the men, which includes an immediate advance of 5 per cent, now and a further advance of 5 per cent, on the 1st of July. Down in Georgia, the Farmers' Alliance, whioh claims to have some thing like 80,000 members, baa declared war on the Bourbons. It is stated that the Alliance means to put an independent ticket of its own into the field next fall and support it With all its strength. The Postmaster-General has informed the contractor who supplies the Department with postal cards that none will be accepted if tbey are aot of better quality than they are now. Much of the popular disfavor into whioh the postal card has been brought of late is due to tbe poor texture of tbe paper used. The more intelligent protectionists learn about tbe Tariff bill the better satisfied tbey are with it as a whole. The difficulty of preparing a measure of this sort so aa to do substantial justice to all our great industrial interests is simply tremendous. 3fajor Mc Kin toy and bis associates have done their work so well as to deserve tbe thanks of the whole country. The sudden death of Major General Crook removes from tbe army one of the bravest of its officers and tbe most skilfull fighter that this country has had in the Indian wars of recent times. He had been in the military service of the country for nearly forty years and had honorably won his way to tbe front rank, General O. O. Howard only standing between him and the succession to General Schofield, now general commanding. Located In FMUpibaric. Mr. W. C. Andrews, a former citizen of this city but more recently of LewiBburg, has located in PhilipBburg, Pa. Mr. A. ^ is a prime business man, and never bides his business under a bushel. His attractive advertisement in the PhilipBburg journals are bound to bear good fruit. Tbe many friends of Mr. Andrews in this section will join with us in wishiog him continued prosperity, and may the "Globe" store be to Philipsburg what it was to Lock Haven, a store where you could feel confident of getting full value for your money.

The funeral services will j be conducted at the house by Rev. G. W. Gerhard. Interment in Highland cemetery. A Slide on th� Public Road.

Tbe slide prevented vehicles from passing over the road Sunday. The Business That May Be Transacted During the Present Week.

The flood in tbe river caused by the rain on Saturday, reached ita heighth this morning, the water having risen slowly since Saturday. There is about a six foot flood above tbe dam, which is considered a good stage for log driving, but too high for safe rafting. Eight timber raftes came in yesterday, and the river since some time during Saturday night has been almost covered with floating saw logs. The boom is filling rapidly, and a strong force of men are at work sorting out tbe Wil. liamsport logs and sending them on below. At Clearfield this morning there was a four and a half foot flood and tbe logs were running thick. The water at Clearfield is too high for rafting, and there is not likely to be many, rafts reach this market before Thursday. over williamspout dam. Tbe Williamsport Qazelti and Bulletin of this morning says: A large raft went over tbo dam yesterday morning about 7 o'clock. The raftsmen finding that they could not make tbe chute were taken off tbo timbers before tbe plunge was made. The raft did not appear to be broken up much and continued on down the river. It struck tho second pier of the Market street bridge and broke in several pieces. Tho raft8mou then went out in boats and gathered tbo timbers and landed them at a poiut down below the city where tbey will again be put together. � The river at Williamsport last night had reached a heighth of ten and a half feet aud was atill rising.

Tho inability of some of the persons interested to take part at the time mentioned caused tho postponement. He Lo.t What Uu Lout. Chicago Globe. "Loan mo $5 to continue playing with. "I would, hut it is unlucky. The last time I loaned $5 I immediately began to lose." "Indeed! How much did you lose?" "Five dollars," An Interesting Story or How He Obtained His Lovely Wise, That grizzled veteran, Major-Genoral George Crook, who has just died suddenly at Chicago, obtained his lovely wife through one of the most romantio incidents of the civil war. In the early autumn of 18G3 he was in command of the Union forces on tbe border line of Maryland and West Virginia. It was tough oampaigning up among tbe Allegheny Mountains and down through tbe Youghi-ogheny and Kanawha regions, and while the skirmishing never amounted to the dignity of a pitched battle, it wearied the troops and their officers. One night at that time General Crook and his staff, accompanied only by a small escort of cavalry, had reaobed the town of Cumberland and bad sought sleep in what was thea tbe principal hotel there. Between midnight and daylight a company of Confederate cavalry swooped down upon them and surprised them in thoir beds. That company was under the command of young Daily, whose father was tbe proprietor of tbe aid hotel at Oakland, Va., some sixty mile* further westward on the line of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. It was tbe junior Daily's intimate knowledge of (he sot-rounding country that had enabled him to make tbe raid over the mountain paths. Before day bad dawned he waa riding away with his prisoners. He made straight for the hotel at Oakland, whioh was then within the Confederate lines, proposing to keep his captives there uutil he might have a ohanee to forward them to a Southern prison. But at the hotel were his sisters, Misses Mary and Fanny Daily, two blooming beauties, whose loveliness had been nourished by the mountain air and the trout, venison and waffles for which the hostelry was famous. General Crook and bis staff subordinates were given liberty under parole, and he and Miss Mary Daily soon found themselves drifting into tbe safe harbor of mutual affection. This was all the more remarkable because Miss Daily was as fierce a Confederate as her brotber, but love in this case conquered the war enmities, and when she and general Crook parted it was with the understanding that they would meet again and would be married. The promise was faithfully kept, and the wedding took place soon'after the conclusion of hostilities. In tbe quarter of a cent^y that has elapsed since then she had been his constant companion to the day of his deatb. Most of his Bervice in those twenty-five years had been on tne frontier and occupied with fighting the Indians, but there were none of bis campaigns from which sbe was absent. Her courage was equal to that of any veteran, and gentlewoman as she is, there were no perils from which she would flinch. Her husband was as proud of her as she of him, and during the intervals of frontier service, when they visited Washington, she was a oentre of observation and praise. His Judgment Correct. 'Ah! Mr. Greene!" he said as he shook hands with a gentleman from �faw Harea as thoy met in Union Square. 'Glad to see you, Mr. Smith." 'By the way, I sent you a young man a few months ago." - . 'You did." 'I recommended him as a hustler." 'Well, I wanted to ask you how he developed. When I pass judgment on a man I like to follow him np and see if I was right or wrong." "Oh, you are right in this case." "Then he was a hustler?" "Indeed he is. When he had been with me three months he ran away with my daughter, I took them home, extended my blessing, and now he baa gone with my wife and ten thousand in cash. You made no mistake in your man, sir. He is at present out-hustling five good detectives." Hilarious "HUarlly." No word but "Hilarity" expresses' the dominant sentiment of those who witnessed the entertainment of Chas. A. Lodor's Comedy Company, at tho Central Opera House hist evening. Tho boute waa full aud all were hai>py. Tho enter-taitmuuit was oxcoptional'y good iu all its pAtts; tho tuiul was one of ttto best ever heard iu Pu Boi.s, the orchestra compared favorably with it aud the individuals who comprised tho Ooinpany were all the right ptvplo in the right places. Should the i'mnpnoy over favor this plauo with another visit It would bo greeted with a full house. The. above is from the DuBots AnVy r<�.'.'nVr oi Saturday and speaks volumes for "Hilarity" whioh appears at tho Opera House on Friday night. Two Heaths at Kenovo. Mrs. W. K.
