Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - May 22, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAK-NO. 71. LOCK HAVEN, PA., THURSDAY. MAY 22. 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS K1NSLOB BKOTKEBS---P0BLI8HKKS CURRENT COMMENTS The inoaroertion of ex-Senator Jones in a lunatic asylum is a measure which should have been taken some time ago. It is wall for the ex-Senator and well for all of his friends that it has been done at last. Office, office, seems to be the almost universal cry of the men of to-day. No matter how trifling or insignificant the position may be, there are always pleDty of men who will go almost any length to secure it. Hayiko been killed by frost the regular number of times, the strawberry crop down in Delaware is now announced to be abundant and flue. Let us hope that the Delaware peaches will follow the good example whioh the strawberries have set them. A. Washington dlspatoh asserts that the HcCalla sentence is almost universally condemned as too light. Three years suspension from duty, with waiting orders5 pay, means nothing leBB than three years* leave of absence, with a aviary of $2,300 a year. The fact that President Harrison has had 600 applications for the two appointments of oadets-at-Iarge-one at West Point, the other at Annapolis-that be has power to make this year, is a significant indication of the extreme popularity of the military and naval service with Young A merioa. Cornell University loses a million dollars involved in the famous Fiske will litigation because a New York statute forbids the institution to hold mose than three million dollars worth of property. It seems particularly hard that the university should lose this money at a time when its managers are demonstrating their ability to expend funds wisely. Philadelphia has followed in the footsteps of New York in making .p her mind that the street musicians must go. 8ince the former city shut her doors on them they have made their way to Phila-delpbia, where their numbers are now so great that they are little better than nuisances. Coxplaints from householders have been pouring in on Mayor Fitter, until he has been compelled to succumb, and he will compel tbem to seek other quar-� ters. THE TARIFF BILL PASSED Efforts of the Democratic Minority to Thwart the Measure Tails. PASSED AMID SCENES OP tfPEOAE Mat on Mason requests the citizens of Lock Haven, through the columns of the Express, to clean the streets and alleys and to keep them clean. It is especially desired to have the town in first class condition by Monday next and to do this no time hi to be lost. The city teams will haul away the mud from the streets if it is scraped up in piles. Go to work at once and thoroughly clean in front of your premises, and don't forget the alley in the rear. Lock Haven Bbonld look its prettiest next week, so that onr visiting guests may be favorably impressed and go away charmed with the place. Memorial Day aTxerelses at Mill Ball. Pursuant to the usual custom on this ocoasion, the P. O. 8. of A. and G. A. R. will assemble on Friday, May 30th, and strew with bright flowers the silent mounds beneath which lie the ashes of the martyred heroes, who laid their lives upon the altar of their country a quarter of a century ago, and where they shall peacefully sleep until the final reveille is sounded by the Great Captain of the uriiverte. Sleep on thou noble braves, you have fonght a good fight, you have finished your course, and your names are indelibly engraven upon the archives of memory of thousands who yearly assemble to soatter bright blossoms over your resting plaoes. Sleep on, no more will the clash of sabers or the rattle of musketry assail your ears. Sleep on nntil the final bngle oall shall muster yon before the Master, who shall aay "Enter tbou into the joy of thy Lord."; The order of the exeroises are as follows: The different organizations will meet at Cedar Hill cemetery at 10 o'clock a. m. The march will be from Mill Hall to Furst's store, where the procession will be joined by the Q. A. R., and proceed from thence to the cemetery where, after the decoration ceremonies are ended, appropriate addresses will be delivered by Rev. James Hunter, of Mill Hall, Rev. J. A. Deitriob, of Salona, and others. Floral contributions will be thankfully received. Gbapho. The Original Package In Maine. Lewiston, Maine, May 21.-The original paokage business has begun here. Yesterday a car arrived at the Maine Central station containing five barrels and a large number of sixteen gallon kegs of beer consigned to a local dealer, who took them to bis store without any interference of tbe authorities. Tbe dealer saya a New Hampshire brewery, whence be obtained the beer, baa agreed to assume all cost* of any teat cms. It Receives 174 Voti s an Final Parsaga- Some Mew Changes Made at the Last Moment, Bat Promptly at the Honr Fixed the BiU is Taken Up and Disposed of-How Some Members Voted, Washington, May 2t.-The scene in the House to-day was confusing. Jo Com-mittee of the Whole Baker, of New York, offered an amendment to the tariff bill pro vidiog that all articles on importation into the United States, whether embraced the free lint or otherwise, shall be subject to, and pay no less a rate of duty than is or may be imposed by tbe country of port on like articles exported into the United States. This amendment, he said, was in the interest of good government. This was argued at length and much con fusion prevailed. In the midst of tbe confusion the hour of noon arrived, and (in accordance with the special rule adopted and without vote being reached on Baker's amendment) tbe committee rose on reported bill to the House. MoKinley demanded the previous question ;on the bill, and tbe Democrats demanded the yeas and says, resultiug: Yeas 161,nays 143. Coleman, of Louisiana, and Featheratone, of Arkansas, voted with tbe Democrats; Adams, of Illinois, and Bntterwortb declined to vote. The amendments were then road in detail. The amendment increasing the proposed duty on wool was rejected. amendments considered. The first amendment on which a separate vote was demanded was the one changing the phraseology of the tin plate clause. It was adopted by a narrow margin of yeas 150, nays 149. The next vote was equally olose, but this time tbe Democrats were victorious, the amendment fixing the duty on jute yarn at 35 per cent, being defeated, yeas 143, nays 144. The duty as now fixed by the bill is 30 per cent. The amendment imposing a duty of fifteen per cent., advalorem on all manufactures of silk (not speoially provided for) providing that all such manufactures of which wool or bair oi camel, goat or other like animals is a component material, shall be classified as maunfacturers of wool, was agreed to. The vinegar amendment adopted last night in Committee of the Whole was agreed to. carlsle's resolution. This was the last amendment and engrossment, and tbe tbird reading of the bill having been ordered, Carlisle offered tbe following amendment. Resolved, That the pending bill be recommitted to thecommitteeon WaysandMeanB.with instructions to report the same back to the Houeq at the earliest possible day, so amended by substitute or otherwise, as to reduce the revenues of the Government by reducing tbe burdens of taxation on tbe people, Instead of reducing the dutleH by imposing prohibitory rates of taxation upon imported goods. (Democratic applause). The resolution was defeated, yeas 140, nays 104 (Republican applause.) the bill passed. The bill was then passed, yeaslG4, amid applause on both sides of the House, tbe Democratic applause being derisive in its character. This was strictly a party vote, with the exception of Coleman, of Louisiana, and Featherstone, of Arkansas, who voted with tho Democrats in the negative, and Butterworth voted aye. Cleaning the Streets. All tbe men and'teams in the employ of the city will be engaged from now until Saturday evening removing mud from tbe streets, over which the parade will pass next Tuesday. Property owners are requested to comply with the Mayor's re* qust and scrape the mud in piles in order that it may be removed by the city teams. If all join heartily in tbe movement to have clean streets the task can easily be completed by Saturday evening and tbe thoroughfares of the oity will be in good condition. Begin at once, as there is no time to delay. An Alleged Conspiracy. San Francisco, May 21.-The Cfironi cU this morniDg devotes four columns to giving tbe details of an alleged conspiracy to oapture Lower California, and to found an Independent Republic, to be followed by annexation to the United States. The revelations claim to involve a num. ber of capitalist interested in Lower California lands and mines, and well known citizens of Los Angeles and San Diego. TBE READING EXTENSION. Licensed to Wed. The Bellefonte Sewn says that among tbe marriage lioenses granted at Bellefonte last week was one to Edward W. Williams, Lock Haven aid Maggie L. Wallace, of Milesburg. Tbe Merry-go-Bound. A flying jenny, or merry-go-round, arrived in town this forenoon. The tent . is pitched on tbe vacant lot at tbe corner > of Church street and Bellefonte avenue. Official Announcement of the New Line to Connect With the Erie. Philadelphia, May 21.-Announce ment of important projects now under aotive consideration by the authorities of the Reading railroad were made officially yesterday by officers of tbe company. Under orders of tbe board of managers surveys are now being made for a line to conneot the Reading syBtem at Williams, port with the Erie at Erwin, a few miles west of Corning, on the main line of the latter road. About thirty miles of tbe Erie's Tioga branch (from Blossburg to Lawrenoeville) will be used to make the connection. It is andeistood that the Erie will build the road from Lawrenoeville to Erwin, distance of nine miles, aad that the line from WilliamBport to Blossburg will be built jointly T>y tbe Reading and Erie, This will give the Reading a line from its mines to Buffalo, eighty-seven miles shorter than its present route via. the Fall Brook and New York Central, putting the Reading ooal into Buffalo on a shorter line than any other except one-the Delaware, Laokawanna and Western-whioh is the same length. far reaching plans. Tbe Erie road is used from Lawrenoeville also to make a connection with tbe Elmira, Cortland and Northern Railioad, which stretches out to the north 140 miles to Camden on the Rome, Watertown and Ogdensburg Railroad, which, it is reported, is already operated in the interest of tbe Reading, at which point a large and constantly increasing anthracite ooal ton-age is distributed. It is said that President Corbin is not satisfied with this terminus at Camden, and that he has it in contemplation to extend tbe roote from Camden to Watertown, and thence to Morristown, tbe terminus of tbe Rome, Watertown and Ogdensburg, where, as well as at Ogdensburg, ferry, aonneotions arc established with the Canadian Pacific. coal to the far west. An extension of five or six miles from Morristown to Ogdensburg will bring the route to a connection with the Central Vermont system. Through these connections Reading coal can be distributed along tbe entire lines of these two Bystems, whero at present it is entirely shut out The connection with tbe Canadian Pacific will put Reading ooal into the large cities of Quebeo, Moutreal, Ottawa and other points to the Pacifio ocean, at which places the consumption of anthracite ooal is on the increase, with every prospect that will develop in the near future into a large demand. President Corbin, accompanied by a surveyor is now on the ground investigating tbis route in person. Lycoming County Items. From tbe Jersey 3bore Herald. Sunday eveniDg last Rev. W. H. Clip-man, pastor of tho Baptist Churoh, was taken suddenly ill after the evening service, and during the night great fears were entertained as to his recovery. Drs. G. H. Cline and S. E. Bickell were in attendance. Neuralgia of the heart was the cause of his illness. We are glad to note a gradual improvement in his oase. The steam saw mill of John S. Tomb & Son, at Cedar Run, is in full operatiou. This firm has bought four head of work horses, and put in an oil slide four miles long, in order to get in their logs. Messrs. Tomb whisky bottle on tbe oar, and was heard to say that she had no friends in Cincinnati. A Tribute to the Ladies. A Warrioramark correspondent sends to the Tyrone Herald tbis glowing tribute to tbe women, which was inspired by the courage of a young Lock Haven lady then in tbat vioinity: "Tbe courageous Miss Delia Bendel, wbo taught a successful terns of school last winter at Dry Hollow, returned to her friends at Lock Haven.a few. days Be. Last fall some hesitated about giving tbis young lady (be school on account of her being a timid female. However, tbat is not to be wondered at, for at all times and in all places we see and hear doubts of women's courage and, strange to say, the majority of stories about timid females are told by men. The great world of women are mothers and wives. All day long while "John" is snugly seated In hia office his wife is at borne contending with an ungovernable maid wbo will light tbe fire . with kerosene or give the baby laudanum. Or, perhaps, John's pocketbook is not qnite so well lined as it might be and she herself must be maid-of-all-work, child's nurse and seamstress. Visit tbe Altoona hospital and see if it is not a timid, nervous woman who stands by the oot on which is laid an awful wreok of a human form; hands the doctor bis instruments, changes tbe bandages, arranges tbe pillow and eases the last moments of some poor soul on his journey to another world. It is a woman who laughs when Dick" tells ber he is ruined and money is gone. She kisses bim and says, "We are strong, we can work together; never mind." Leave Hypatia, Joan of Are, Charlotte Corday and their kind to balance the Caesars, Hannibala and Napoleons of the world. Take the ordinary everyday race ot men and women in your own Tyrone-which of tbe two endures, sacrifices and loves on, freely and fully, to tbe end? In 99 times out of 100 it is the woman-the timid, nervous, cowardly woman." Sngar Valley News. From the Journal. Lumberman A. D. Kleckner Informed our reporter on Saturday that several nights since be was attacked by two highwaymen and ribbed, He did not state how muoh money was taken or whore it occurred. The robbers shot at bim twice, but fortunately, however, both shots missed aim. A child of Wm. Stamm, who keeps the toll-gate at Woodward, was almost burned to death last Wednesday. A spark of fire issuing from the kitcben stove set fire to the little one's olothes and enveloped it in flames. Mrs. C. N. Conser and Mrs. W. A. White, of Look Haven, paid tbeir parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Smith, a pleasant visit over Sunday. Mr. A. S. Grow, of Lock Haveu, and Dr. Furnaoe, of New York, sought comfort at Pleasant Valley Tuesday. Notice From Mayor Mason. I deem it proper to again oall tbe atten-tention of our citizens and property owners to tbe condition of the streets and alleys. The importance of the health of our community cannot (be over-estimated, and clean streets and alleys certainly conduce to public health. Next week our city will be filled with strangers, many of whom have never been here, and our peoplo should make it a matter of pride to have the oity appear to the best advantage. It is well known that our ordinances require our streets and alleys to be kept clean and all persons are notified not to throw ashes and garbage therein, and also to remove all suoh as have accumulated. It is requested that tbe mud be soraped on piles and especially alone; tbe route of the parade, and it will be removed by tbe oity Iso. W. Mason, Major.

I have known men to talk of pet razors whioh tbey have used every day for ever so many years; if they would let those lie by for a while they wonld find a welcome improvement. The second cause of the trouble is. bearing on the razor while sharpening it. You never want to attempt to put on an edge before shaving. When yon are through rob the blade a few times lightly on a plain leather strap, which need not cost above a quarter, and then put away. The old boiling water craze is exploded now, and professionals do just as good work with cold water as hot." . Cyclbrsuna'of Gstfysbsra*. . - : * E. A. Faneber has purchased of an Ohio party a complete outfit of the cyeloraaia of Gettysburg, and intends to ereot the test in tbe vacant lot at tbe comer of Vesper and Water streets. The tent In whieh tbe. exhibition will be given is what is called a 100 foot round top. The fallowing graphic notice of the oyclorama la from the Richmond Ttltgram: The old soldiers who visited the Battle of Gettysburg, the panorama of tha 'moat terrible of all the battles of the lata-war, could not but be struck by the realistic picture presented them last week. The canvas is made as true to life as possible, even to the guns and camp equipments lying about in the grass, while painted fences become real.wood and stone. Wheat fields on canvas lose themselves In reality.and one oan almost bear the shrieking of the dying, the moans of the wounded and the heavy oraah of artillery. In tbe centre of tbe teat is raised a platform, on whioh stand are the visitors aad tbe lecturer, who points out to them tha places of Interest and describes each important movement of tbe army, names the officers; in fact, gives suoh information that the spectator almost imagines himself on a field of battle. The work of the artist is well done and the subjeot given due care and thought,and the large number of people who were) present at the opening had nothing bnt words of praise. . ��*� ....... Two policemen in Boston went to a bouse Tuesday to search for stolen property. Their ring at the door was responded to by a man supposed to be William Grossman, who, upon learning the errand of the offioers, placed a revolver to his bead and blew but bis brains. In his pockets were found 34 bank books,, not one representing less than ^00. Last Saturday a plumber cleaning' the' drain pipe in the bath room found 42 gold' and silver watches, wfcioh he tnrneo over to MoDonald, tbe lodging house keeper,-Who said one of bis lodgers dealt in jewelry. Yesterday morning the plumber told-the police, with the above result.1 Grossman left bis room only at night, and tbe officers say he was a burglar. - Great misfortune lends greatness even to an insignificant person.
