Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - May 31, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania tfetitu. NINTH YEAB-NO. 78. LOCK HAVEN, PA., SATURDAY. MAY 31, 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVEN rNGjaO*RESS j OCR RRWARD. Our friends ol the Express showed their enterprise tbii week in issuiog for three day* a luge eight-page sheet printed on pink paper and giving full and well gotten op reports of the grand conclave. We hope the; realised in dollars and cents a sufficient reward for their efforts to keep the publio fall; informed.-Daily Demo-c rat. Thanks, kind neighbor, for the above friendly sentiment and we can truthfully say that the Democrat was also np to the notch in its reports of the oonolave and has cause to feel proud of the hand it bad in making the affair the grand sucoesa it was. Oar eight page editions were not gotten up as a money making scheme, bnt to show np the better side of Lock Haven. The papers were sold to the newsboys at one cent a copy, wbioh acaroely paid for the blank paper. The extra advertising about covered the oost of engravings and other expenses and for ourselves we have a pocketful of glory, but it all goes in newspaper enterprise. The town receives the reward, and it was for this that we labored more than anything else. Large extra editions were disposed of and on Tuesday we could not supply the demand. Aside from those sold to the Knights we mailed a great many papers of the three editions to parties in all parts of the country at the request of our regular subscribers, who wished their distant 'friends to know how Look Haven sustained its reputation as a hospitable city. A newspaper that talks up its town on all occasions and lets no opportunity pate to "boom'' that town by exhibiting extra efforts on special occasions, suoh as the recent Con-olave, is engaged in commendable work, and work that cannot fail of good results. CURRENT COMMENT. The Evening Herald, of Philadelphia, b as again made a change, and Mr, George D. Herbert will preside over its editorial destinies. Hr. Herbert is a trained journalist, having a thorough acquaintance with State politics and an extended knowledge of public men throughout the Commonwealth;_ To no one item of the proposed tariff bill has more opposition been developed than the tin plata sobednle. To manufacture all the tin plate used in this country will give employment to fifty thousand American laborers and keep $10,000,000 in this country which we now send abroad. These faols outweigh a good many objections. _'� Ex-Senator Wallace declared in an open letter to ex-Judge Harvey, of Allen-town, last March that be would not accept the Democratic nomination for Governor, unless it came to him with a near approach tp unanimity. He bad no mind to make a fight for it, and if it was necessary to get 'it in that way he would not concern him-wlf about it at all. This was also the tanoe of a number of declarations y. Wallace by word of mouth. It ^'joessary now to remind him that if he wants tbe aforesaid nomination be will not only be obliged to fight for it, bnt to fight very hard. The Superintendent of the Census, like tbe sensible man that be is, seeing thst some of the questions to be proposed by his enumerators next week will provoke trouble, has ordered his agents, in case of refusal to answer any of these questions, simply to take down the faot of refusal and refer it to headquarters. Therefore those who do not choose to telMhe census taker all their private affairs will be in no danger of arreaf or imprisonment, and in . very little danger of a fine. Let the census takers be received politely, then, and let all their pertinent questions be answered freely and ungrudgingly, but you need not tell about your family diseases nor the state of your finances unless you choose. We see from the Democrat of the 29th lest., that John Gragan, Esq., has an-nouuoed himself as a candidate for re' eleotion to the position of County Commissioner. Mr. G. has filled the place for two terms with honor to himself and ben elit to the county. There has never been a period in tbe history of the county which demanded more care and better judgment in the selection of men for this office than the present. The past year has been trying one to onr people. The flood of lost June, destroying many of our bridges, rendered it necessary to borrow a large sum of money to replace tbe same and open communication with the oity and surrounding villages. The triennial assessment, with man; other important matters, will come up for the consideration of the new board and we need men thoroughly acquainted with tbe needs and demands of the tax-payers to meet the emergenoy, wipe out the debt and finish np tbe work on band. Messrs. J. D. Bogles and John <3iagsn have proven themselves the right men in the right place, and being tbor oughly acquainted with the bnsiness of tbe offioe, it would doubtless prove a benefit to the tax-payers to re-elect them.

Gettysburg, May 30.-The morning of Decoration Day dawned olear and beautiful, and rain, tbe Nemesis that almost invariably hounds this occasion, seems for onoe to have relieved us of its presence. Senator Ingajls and the Rational Congress appear to be the greatest Memorial Day attraction since President Hayes took part in the exercises some ten years ago. From early morning the people of the outlying village* and country have been rolling into town in vehlolea of every make and description until the town was filled with pedestrians. arrival or �xctaunoira. i About 10 o'clock the first; exoorslon arrived, and with abort intervals the railroads entering here have been pouring in visitors from Harrisburg, Washington, Baltimore, York and other cities. On tbe Western Maryland Railroad the eleven extras were run in anywhere from fonr sections downward, of ten cars eaoh, and by 1 o'clock the streets were a moving, poshing crowd of humanity. The Congressional train, bearing the members of the Senate and House, and tendered them by the Western Railroad, steamed into the station at 12:45, stopped a moment and then palled oat to the railroad ont on the first day's field. Here the statesmen left the cars, and Hon. Edward MoFber-son, Clerk of the National House, welcomed them in behalf of the Gettysburg Battlefield Memorial Association, of whiob be Is a director. OR THE BATTLEFIELD. Colonel Baohelder, Government Historian of the Battle, then took oharge of the parry, and explained in terse but graphic language the battle of the first day, tbe death of Reynolds and tbe retreat of 1st and 11th Corps through the town. From here the train returned to the Round Top Branch and passed on oat this along the very centre of the battlefield to Little Round Top. Here the party again disembarked and ascended tbe Round Top* where tbe "Valley of Death" skirts the hill at this point. Colonel Baohelder detailed tbe engagement along the Federal left, LoBgstreet'e assault, the awful carnage of the Wheat Field and the death of Farnsworth. Again resuming the oars, return was made to Hancock Station where, after describing tbe oharge of Picket and the wounding of tbe 2d Coips commander on the third day, the party took carriages prepared for them aid drove through tbe Soldiers' National Cemetery and over Colp's Hill to the Baltimore pike and thence to the town. Tbe start was then immediately made for the Bine Mountain House, at Pen Mar, whiob the Western Maryland Railroad has opened especially for tbeir accommodation. Here the nigbt will be spent, and the return to Washington made tbe following morning by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, via Antietam, Tbe regular Decoration Day exercises took place in the National Cemetery. senator ingalls' oration. The event of tbe day was tbe oration of Senator Iogalla. Referring to the unveil ing of the Lee statue he said: Now in view of the occurrences of the last two days in the extinct capital of the extinot Confederacy, I wish to say a few words. I have no desire on tb is sacred occasion to revert to any subject that is ineonsistentwlth the solem nity of the honr, but unless tbe ideas from which our dead died were right they have died ln|valn.Bat the only regret that seems to be felt by oar adversaries is that in the rebellion they failed to anooeed. Robert E. Lee was undoubtedly one of the greatest soldiers of the age, lofty of character, pure of life and with lineage dating back to tbe morning of patriotism in this hemisphere. He was without fear and witb out reproach. Had Lee adhered to tbe sentiments expressed shortly before tbe rebellion he wonld today have been tbe foremost citizen of the republic He was offered tbe oommand of oar armies, for twenty-three yean his sword had been under tbe flag of the Repnblic. He had been educated at her expense, and had taken oath to support her constitution and her laws, but be violated his oath, pnt aside bis sword and took tbe leadership of the most causeless rebellion since the devil rebelled against the sanctions of Heaven. And yet in perjury and in violation of faith and honor on the day for twenty-five years made sacred by those who profess to have accepted the results of war in good faith, selecting this occasion In all the other anniversaries of the three hundred and sixty-five days of the year, with every angnmentation of insolence, point to the Sooth that this is an example after wbioh they should copy. A Confederate flag is placed in the hand of Washington, (cries of shame) what wonder if tbe dead should cry .against tbe sacrilege. We are told, God alone knows which aide was right. To make the constitution of the United States the supreme law of freemen millions enlisted and thousands gave np their lives, wives were widowed, children orphaned, and yet one-half of the rising generation ia being taught that God alone knows which was right. Carnage raged on hundreds of battlefields. Now the son rises on no master and sets on no slave. The shame of the republio is washed ont Liberty is the law of the land, and yet God alone knows which was right. If we were not right, if nationality ia not better than secession, then these ceremonies are without significance. a matter fob rebuke. "The war for the Union was the greatest orime of the oentnry, and our soldiers rank with the sucoeaaful pugilists who fight in the ring for the championship belt of tbe world; If they were not right National morality is a fiction, loyalty a name and patriotism a fatal malady of the body politic. This tendenoy of tbe South must be resented. This is a day of instruction, a duty we owe the future that our relations to that great conflict be understood and that our dead did not die in vain. It, is not necessary to disparage tbe bravery of adversaries; let them rear monuments to their dead and oherish their deeds; let them eulogise tbe lost cause; let them worship their leaders; 'let them carry their atari and bars; these are matters of taste whiob they must decide for themselves; there is no other country under the sun that wonld permit suoh transactions. They are our countrymen united to us by a common heritage, so they say, but when they aasert that Lincoln and Davis, Grant and Lee, Logan and Jackson were equal, and that God alone knew which waa right, it is a sacrilege of the vilest type, and needs rebuke." The Senator was listened to with the greatest attention and frequently applauded. DEDICATION OF THE GARFIELD MEMORIAL. Clbvelahd, May 30.-The Garfield Memorial, in Lakevlew Cemetery, was dedicated to-day with imposing ceremonies, in the presenoe of tbe President of the United States, members of his Cabinet, and distinguished men from all parts of the^ountry. The memorial is a colossal struct are, towering 165 feet above an eminence in the oemetery wbioh overlooks the oity and surrounding country. The edifiee cost (150,000, of which amount one-half was contributed by the people of Cleveland, the remainder ooming from every state and territory in the Union and from many foreign lauds. The exercises to-day began with a parade of military and oivic societies, tbe procession forming in the oentre of the oity and moving to the cemetery, a distance of five miles. Tbe city is filled with strangers, and thousand*) of people line Euclid avenue and flocked in from Intersecting streets long before the hour for the procession to move. The decorations along the line of march, and all over the city for that matter, were the finest ever Been here. A vast conoouree of people had preceded the procession to the cemetery, and when tbe exeroises began there were thousands congregated about the great stand that had been ereoted, and on which were seated the distinguished gnests. Ex-President Hayes, the President of the Memorial Association, presided, and alter "America" had beea sung by the Memorial Chorus, he delivered a brief oratioo. The oration of tbe day was delivered by ex-Governor Cox, who reviewed Garfield's career. the dat at washington. Washington, May 30.-Deooration Day was observed as a general boliday in this oity, and all the Government Departments, District offloes, banks, and many business houses were closed. Tbe day dear and pleasant, and large numbers of people attended the oeremonies at the varioua cemeteries, while many others wont fishing, on picnics, or on excursions. Tbe procession moved from Fifteenth street and Pennsylvania avenue and M street to the Aqueduct Bridge in West Washington, where tbe parade was dismissed. At Arlington tbe exercises began at noon, with a national salute . by Light Battery C, 3d U. S. Artillery. This was followed by mnsio by tbe Marine band and vocal music by the Mozart olub. A procession consisting of the Committee of Arrangements, Invited guests, members of the G. A. H., ex-soldiers and sailors, orphan children, and oitizens, formed in front of tbe Arlington Mansion, and, headed by the Marine band, marched to the tomb of tbe "Unknown." where baiting, the band played a dirge. The march was then oontinued by the main road to tho cemetery, where the procession separated and the graves wero decorated. After the deooration of the graves the procession again formed and marched to the Amphitheatre, where tbe services were held.

Grave* of Tholr Dead Comrades With Flowers-An Almost General Cessation ofBailnM*. Decoration Day was very generally observed in this oity yesterday, all the stores closed at noon and the business men and olerks took a half holiday. Details from John S. Bittner Post, G. A. A., visited Dunnstown and Flemington in the morning and strewed flowers on the graves of soldiers buried in those cemeteries. The Catholic oemetery was also visited by a committee and the soldiers' graves there decorated. At Dunnstown an interesting address was delivered by Rev. G. W. Gerhard. In the afternoon At half-past one o'clock a procession, consisting of Company H, Knights of the Golden Eagle, Sons of Veterans, the Fire Department, the Grand Army men and drum corps, formed on Water street and proceeded to Highland and Great Island cemeteries, where appropriate services were held. A great many persons visited the cemeteries to witness the exercises, which are always of an interesting oharaoter. An eloquent address was delivered by John G. Love, Esq., of Bellefonte, at the Court Hoose in the evening, and all who heard him say it was one of the finest addresses ever delivered in Lock Haven. The music by a quartette, of male voioes, Messrs. James Snyder, E. E. Adams, Frank Harder and Byron Vandersloot, was remarkably fine and mnch enjoyed. The opening of -the new Normal Chapel attracted many people and as a conse-qaenoe the Court Bouse audienoe was not near so large as it otherwise wonld have been.

Fowler, a leading citizen of that place, who has been ailing for some time past with rheumatism, and having often had the pleasure of dancing to the music of these two' musicians, sent for tbem to play for him from Saturday evening until Monday morning. He thinks the music will relieve the monotony of the siok room, and perhaps cure him of his aches and pains. - Removing the Decorations. The work ol taking down the decorations was about finished to-day and the town has now assumed its every day appearance. The holiday attire was very becoming, but like a best suit of clothes cannot be worn every day. The oonolave deoorations exceeded anything of the kind seen outside of the larger cities and Lock Haven will do as well at the next prominent gathering. It is hoped to have the Knights of tbe Golden Eagle meet here before a great while, and this growing and popular order can oount upon receiving a royal reoeption. Mrs. risk's Funeral. The funeral of Mrs. Lois Fiek took place Thursday afternoon at half-past three o'clock, from the house of her daughter, Mrs. Annie Dunn, West Church street. The services were oonduoted by Rev. J. A.

Both pitchers pitched great ball, Petrikin striking ont 12 men and Shaffer 14. Lock Haven presented a patched np team, owing to the faot that several of their players are on tbe hospital list.

Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Sipes, of Kast Main street, gave a fine reception to a large delegation Of the Huntingdon Commandery one afternoon during the conclave.

The town of Lock Haven has been in gala attire this week in honor of the visiting Knights Templar, who assembled on tbe occasion of the thirty-seventh annual oonolave. The drizzling rain of Monday made the streets very muddy, bat notwithstanding this faot the visitors oontinued to throng to Look Haven nntll the accommodations almost gave oat. The residents of tbe oity foresaw the greatness of the event and invited their friends from all sections of the State, as well as from different parts of the Union. So it waa not surprising to find one's self being introduced to people from almost everywhere. The people who went to Look Haven for the Hist time daring the past few days, while its population was throbbing with the exoitement attendant upon the Com-mandery's visit, will leave it with a good impression and a most kindly feeling in their hearts for the generous people who have acquired more than a local reputation for their hospitality. The Keyttme, a Maaonio publication of Philadelphia, has the following to say in regard to the recent oonolave: Tbe Annual Conclave of the Grand Commandery of Knights Templar of Pennsylvania, held at Look Haven on Tuesday and Wednesday, was a grand success. The weather on Tuesday, tbe day of the parade, was delightful and some twelve hundred Knights were in line, with sixteen bands of music. The city of Look Haven was thronged with visiting spectators and all the buildings on the line of parade were in holiday attire. Everybody was pleased and none went away dissatisfied. The reoeption In the evening, at the Armory, was a noted social and Templar success. St. Albans drill, the grand maron, the reoeption, the music and tbe dancing were all thoroughly enjoyed by the participants. The Knights of Look Haven, especially, oovered themselves with glory and paid a noble tribute of respect and love to Grand Commander Hippie. Hospitaller Commandery feels grateful to all those who took a hand at making the oonolave the grand success it was, and especially to tbe citizens who decorated their buildings and entertained visiting Knights. The deoorations were very profuse and the dressing of the town in holiday attire in honor of the Knights is greatly appreciated by the local oommandery. TEE SIXTH ANNIVERSARY. The Pleasurable Kxerelse* at the normal School last Bvenlng. - The entertainment at the Normal last night by the Shakespeare LKerary Society was attended by an exceedingly large and select audience, all of whom seemed deeply interested in the exercises, carried oat according to the program. Being Memorial Day the new chapel was beautifully decorated. The Urge flag that was placed upon tbe stage was furnished by the Adams Express oompany. The windows were draped with red, white and blue. A large mound waa built on the stage, with tbe beautiful pieture of Shakespeare placed in front of it. ., The Axemakera' band, of Mill Hall, furnished the mnsio for the entertainment. Many oompliments were psased about the good music they rendered. , ' The chapel lis a fine room, capable of seating a thousand people. We suppose about eight or nine hundred were present last evening. From the gallery one has a fine view of the stage. The program was opened by an overture, "Sells' Brothers," by the Hill Hall Band, and followed by. prayer. ' After prayer the band played a beentiful serenade, "Pleasant Dreams." Tbe President, R.. W.Clymer, was next introduoed and delivered a good address. The President's address was followed by a male quartette, "God Pity the Men on tbe See Tonight," by Messrs. Speng-ler, Woodring, Suiter and Chambers. The "Avon Gazette, "read by the editor, Hiss Maud* Sankey, was sntertaining and . full of spioy sayings. The paper was followed by a selection from the band, and also by a duet, "Golden Phojbus," by Miss Dillon and Prof. Chambers. . Tbe lecture was next on the program.'.. Rev. J. A. Wood, Jr., delivered a very inter, eating lecture on "A Tour to Bombay-" This lecture waa full of historical facts, also gave some geographical Kerne of Bombay and the people that live there. Mr. W. spoke with exoellent effect, and his address was appreciated by - the audience. The band then played a lively waits, "Beautiful Star," and Hiss Mella Bamberger read an essay-on "Social Culture." Misses Allabach and Dillon rendered a beautiful duet, "Land of the Swsllows," and Miss Josephine MoKown recited a piece entitled "The Guardian Angel." The lady did splendid bat possibly a little louder tone of voice wonld have .added to the merits of tbe delivery. MissMsKown is from Elizabeth, Allegheny county, Pa., and a graduate of 1889. The benediotion was prononneed by Rev. Charles James Wood, followed by music by the baud, polka "La Bella" as the audience was marehlng out. This ended the pleasant meeting given by the Shakespeare Society of the Normal. . ** Meet To-Xight. The members of the Quarterly Conference of the Evangelioal Church will meet in tbe olass room this evening at 7:30. A full attendance ia requested. The'Lowell, Massachusetts, teaoher who attempted to core a pupil of profanity by washing ont his mouth with soap has been sued for damages because the boy subsequently died of diphtheria. This is her reward for attempting to do tbe double duty of parent and teaoher so generally exacted of teachers and so frequently not appreciated. The expert testimony as to the effects of soap in produoing diphtheria will doubtless be interesting. SPSDAT BXRVICKS. Tna record of high license in Philadelphia is a most satisfactory one. Strong efforts were recently made to indooe the judges of the license court to increase the number of licensed saloons, it being urged that this was. the only way to reduoe the number of "speak-easiee" to the-city. Investigation brought oat the fact that the number and inflaenoe of those Olioit rum-holes have been greatly exaggerated. That in faot, outside of the bogus "aooial clubs," tbey are not numerous and cannot in the nature of things do much business without exposure. The record shows'the number of licensed saloons in that oity in 1887 to have been 5,773. In 1888, the first year of high license, the number was reduced to 1,317, the next year to 1,305, and now there are 1,173 licensed saloons in the city. The Knickerbocker Ioe Company in New York has been raising the prloeof ice to private consumers to one cent per poundj which is perhaps the' hlgest prioe ever asked in that oity. Yet this same company dooks Its drivers for the loss Incurred by melting. A driver who starts out with 2,000 pounds often delivers no more than 1,800 pounds, the rest having been lost by melting. The loss the drivers are compelled to make np. Where Dlvln* Worship Will Be Held To-Morrow-All Welcome. Services at the Reformed Church morning and evening at the usual hours. Sunday School at 9:30.
