Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - May 23, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAR-NO. 72. LOCK HAVEN, PA., FRIDAY. MAY 23. 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING- EXPRESS KINSLOE BROTHERS---PUBLISHERS CURRENT COMMENT. . A. dispatch from Iowa says "the 'original package' has apparently come to stay." The package may stay, but it's ten to one that it's contents vanish in double quick time. As the shad season draws to a close that for the catch of black bass draws near, and between these magnificent fish the experienced angler prefere the sport ot catching the latter. Will eleotricity kill? Read the aocounts of the day and you will doubt no longer. How to make electricity sufficiently gentle for current ideas of humanity, is the only question, it would seem. The Berlin liquor law says that a man muBt eat when he drinks. So does Boston. But as there are five hundred ways of evading a law, Fritz and Brother Jonathan will smile as they see fit. Sumptuary laws are more laughed at than followed. No State gives greater care to her insane population than Pennsylvania. Her asylums are among the beBt in the land, both in construction and managemeut. There are now in these institutions G,8S4 inmates, and their annual maintenance is $1,290,506.04._ TnETopeka women who threaten to become the law breakers on account of their indignation with the original package decision should take PuntlCt advise to those about to marry. Forethought is often more profitable than afterthought. Law breaking doesn't pay. No country in Europe is less affected by emigration than Spain, yet the census taken in that country in 1887 shows that during the decade ending in that year, the inarease in population was only one-half of one per cent. During the same period the foreign trade of the country has varied very little, showing a lack of energy and activity in the people. In fact, Spain appears to be about as nearly at a standstill in material progress and all things else as a country well can be. Tbe Cleary Cale. The Kenovo Record says the Cleary case will now oome back for trial again in our courts and doubtless the whole ground will be gone over. Since the trial many witnesses have gone to distant parts of the country, but under the act of 18S7, the printed testimony of such witnesses taken at tbe last trial, may be offered again in evidence. It is'rumored that Messrs. Mo-Cormick and Kress, the attorneys for Cleary, will endeavor to effeot a compromise with tbe Commonwealth's attorneys, by offering, at tho next trial, to enter a plea of "guilty of murder in the second degree." By this arrangements heavy bill of expense would be saved to the taxpayers, tbe prisoner be sent ten or twelve years to the penitentiary, and the claims of justice satisfied. Some attornery here, however, entertain serious doubts about the Commonwealth accepting such an arrangement, and look forward to another effort to convict him of murder in the first degree. Union Veteran Legion. A meeting of old soldiers interested in organizing the Union Veteran Legion in this city was held last night at the office of Sheriff Leahy in tbe Court House. The application for a charter was forwarded with the signatures affixed of twenty-four veterans as charter members. An early date will be fixed for organization and mustering.in of the charter members. Handsome Decorations. The professional decorators continue to be kept busy and many business bouse and private residences are handsomely decorated for -next week. With fair weather to enable the decorators to proceed thero is no doubt but Lock Haven*} will show tbe visitors next week the handsomest decorations ever seen in any town on the West Branch.

Frederick Arthur Bridgman, tho Orientalist painter, is characterized by Mrs. Schuyler Van Rensselaer, in "Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly11 for June, as a typical American artist, because in art, "just now, it is the cosmopolite who is typical, the thorough-paced American who is exceptional." Some admBrable engravings and fac-simils of Mr. Bridgman'a pictures are given. Another notable attraction of this number is a profusely illustrated article on that "mile of history," the Bowery, of New York city, by Felix Oldboy, the well-known local historian, who seems to havo inherited Irving's charm of style and fund of Gotham-lore.

New York Star. A book-Send friend, who haunts the stores and art sales, gave me Borne interesting facts in relation to the fads of rich men. He said: "George Vaoderbilt, probably the least talked about of any one of that family, is undoubtedly one of the best specimens of that great railroad oirole. He is tall, spare, but sinewy, well proportioned and is the picture of health and strength. He spends a great deal of his leisure time among the fine book stores of tbe oity, where bis purchases must roll up into the thousands every year. It is no uncommon thing for bim to pay $3,000 or $4,000 for a dozen rare books, and as many thousands for their binding. "Robert Hoe, Jr., who Is now the bead ot tbe greatest printing press manufactory the world has ever known, is a great deal of a dilettante in regard to books, bindings, etchings, engravings and the like. He patronizes tbe same plaoes as does Vanderbilt, but unlike tbe latter can be found in tboso curious stores up towu whose sole stock in trade consists of valuable engravings and works of that elass. His collections in these fields are said to be worth over half a million of dollars. He is the undoubted successor of the late S. L, M. Barlow. "A. Waldorf Astor seems to be the most versatile of all the younger generations of great millionaires. There appears to be no limit at all to bis taste, and in bis own circle he is considered an admirable judge of bric-a-brac, fine ohina, books, paintings and the other luxuries of life. He has spent a great deal of money upon bis library, but, unlike Hoe and Vanderbilt, cares more for standard works than rare editions or extraordinary bindings. Paul Dana seems to inherit his father's taste, if not ail the tatter's abilities. He devotes a certain amount of time to tbe stores described and is quite an expert in porcelain, ceramics, orchids, books and pictures. It is not generally known that he has witten a large amount of art notes criticisms for tbe Sun, and that of the very highest type. "Vd to a shr.rt time. Robert Ray Hamilton was a liberal purchaser of new books. There is no necessity for his baying old ones, as the Hamilton library has long been famous for both its quality and quantity. During his political career he brought together a very fine oolleotion of works, bearing upon topics pertaining to New York State, which he is said to keep in tbe hope tbat he will some of these days be again sent back to Albany to represent the people of tUia city. Perry Belmont, before he went to Con gress, devoted almost all bis leisure time to horses, and more especially to polo ponies, turned over a new leaf at that period and became an enthusiastic collector of standard books. His wealth allowed him to gratify his desires, and enabled him in a short time to make an excellent library of "Americana." Though be takes but little interest in politics at present, he still keeps up his love for books aud has a library of the very first class, "George Gould before bis marriage bad little taste for anything outside of Wall street and the society of a few friends, Since then, and probably owing to the influence of his wife, he bas begun to develop a taste for handsome books, fine piotures and expensive brioa-brae. His connections in this regard are very poor and will not bear comparison with those of 50 other society leaders of New York. 'His brother promises to be different, and already Bhows a strong penohant for luxuries whioh George is just beginning to appreciate." Obituary. Mrs. Sarah Crider, wife of John B. Crider, died at Cameron, on Monday, 19th inst., of disease superinduced by la grippe. Her funeral occurred Wednesday afternoon, 21st inst. Interment was made in the Emporium cemetory. Tho deceased was aged 54 years, and with her husband bad removed from this oity to Cameron only a short time ago. Her surviving children are, Rosa Crider, Jacob Crider and Edward Crider, by ber present husband, and Mrs. Almira Knickerbocker, of Potter county, A. N. Summerson, Mattie Sum-morson and Dora Summerson, ohildren by a first marriage. The .pall bearers were W. McConal, H. Rodge, T. Dining and G. Morris. Personal Mention. Everybody expects to have their friends visit tbem next week, and many strangerB are arriving already to remain until after the conclave. It will be considered a favor if persons entertaining guests will band their names in at tbe office of tbe Exi'ress, notify us by postal oard or give the information to a reporter of the paper.
