Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - November 4, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania [NINTH YE All-NO. 211. LOCK HAVEN, PA., TUESDAY. NOVEMBERS, 1890. PKICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPKESS KINSLOK BKOTHKKS---FUBMSHKKS FORECAST OF THE RESET CURRENT COMMENT. Tn&iiK is a report that tho three great eflt meat-packing firms iu Chicago are preparing to remove to a new location in In diana, where they will put up works large enough to support a population of 150,-000. WriAT kind of people are those who aro all the time taking medicine or somethiug else out of the wrong bottle or poisoniDg or killing themselves thereby? It ocouts to us that there is something wrong Bome-where. The increase in the tariff on express matter, though not vory considerable, is large enough to help along Mr. Wanama ker's project for carrying merchandise by mail on more favorable terms than at present. Secretary of the Department of Agrr culture Rusk, says that beet sugar pro duet has passed the point of an experiment, and is now as muob a success as the manufaoture of the Bame article from any other material. It is always pleasant to see a ring come to grief. That is what has come to the silver speculators. When the silver bill was passed at their anxious solicitation they expected to run the prices up to par with gold, about $1.20 per ounce. It did go to $1.21, but has slowly fallen since un til it is now $1.05. Some Baltimore ladies have raised 100,-000 and offered it to the Johns Hopkins University for the purpose of founding a woman's medical college, to which women will be admitted on the same terms as men are to their college. The trustees have accepted the gift with the proviso that the money shall be invested and the school shall not be established until the fund amounts to $50O,C0O. There is danger in the modern Hour sack! Investigation by the Health Commissioner of Chicago has shown that the oxide of lead contained in a loaf of bread, which had poisoned those who had eat of it, got into the flour through the brand printed on the bag, in heavy red and blue colors, the color being put on ho heavily tbat it Boaked through, the clotb and into the flour. The heavy paper bags in which flour is put up for the retail trade are not so liable to this objection. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing has begun the issue of $1 and $2 notes, but the United States Treasurer does not expect to have enough of them to meet the demand for at least two weeks more. The famine of small notes has long been continued, and their scarcity has caused much annoyance, which was not relieved by the coinage of vast quantities of silver dollars. Somehow the people 'who are so anxious for an unlimited coinage of silver always want somebody else to carry it. Council to be Instituted To-morrow evening a oounoil of the Junior Order of American Mechanics will be instituted in this city by Deputy Councilor \ Williams,of Williamsport. The instituting , team of Williamsport oouncil will arrive; hereon FaBt Line to assist in the ceremonies. I There will also be delegates from dewberry, Tyrone, Altoona and Philadelphia. The new oouncil starts out with bright prospeots. Water Certificate!. The Finance Committee in their report which was adopted by Counoil, last night, recommended tbat the Clerk of Council be Instructed to advertise for bids for $5,000 water eeitiflcates, at 5 per cent. The certificates will be of the denominations of $500 eaob, payable $2,500 in one year and $2,500 in two years. Estimates of the Result in Pennsylvania and Many Other States.

Philadelphia, Nov. 3.-The political situation is to-night about on a see-saw, and both sides are claimiug victory. Democratic State Chairman Kerr has goue to bis home in Clearfield, and no estimates are being given out at the State headquarters. Democratic City Chairman Donnely however, claims 30,000 plurality in the State for Paltison. The only exact figures he gives, however, are in Philadelphia, where tbo result doubtless depends. In this city ho allows candidate Dolumater a plurality of 5,400, which be is confident Pattison will overcome in the State. The Democrats confidently count on carrying Allegheny county through the antipathy of Chris Magee to Quay. a republican' stampede, Republican State Chairman Andrews claims tbat there has been.a stampede within the last twenty-four hours for Dela-mater, and asks that his figures given out on Saturday be revised. lu&tead of 35,000 plurality bo now claims 47,000. Republican City Chairman Porter, when asked about tho city to-night, said; "It will go above 20,000 for Delamator, but J. am not going to say bow much. It would not surprise me, however, if the total would ^ reach 30,000. Internal Revenue Collector Martin, who ; is Senator Quay's closest personal repro- I sentativo here, saya late to-night: "Dela-' mater's plurality will be in the neighborhood of 25,000, and may go beyond that figure." The betting has been very lively all day. Even bete of money were very few, but bets of two to one on Delamator oflered by representatives of the Hepubliean Statu Committee were promptly taken up. No fiiDgle bet of more than 42,000 wiw oittdu. The Pkess. A Fine Medal. Tbe Williamsport Republican says Col.

Wolf has just completed a big splash dam on Youngwoman's creek, for Messrs. Howard &, Perley, we are reliably informed tbat at least three other enterprises will be located at North Bend in the nert siz months, among them will be a large saw-mill and an axe factory.

Crose, the Italian who is .held on suspicion of having murdered another Italian, was taken to Floyd's photograph gallery to-day, where a full length picture of him was taken. The photograph will be sent to the Sheriff of Brooke county, Va. The Last Baft in. All tho timber and logs have been taken from the pool of the dam to the saw mill basins. The last raft of timber was taken up the canal to-day. Forecast of the Result In Many of the States -Tho Republican Proepects Bright till Over the Country. The following Associated Press dispatches were made up last night Irom the latest information obtainable, tbo estimates being based on the result of the moBt careful inquiry: Connecticut.-The Legislature to be elected will chooso a United States Senator to succeed Piatt. It is generally conceded tbat it will be Republican, although both parties are working actively for control. It is thought RuBsell, Republican, will defeat Wells, Democrat, for Congress in the Third district, and Wilcox, Democrat, will be elected in the Second district. The general expectation is that there will be no election of State officers. New Yokk.-The Democrats are hopeful of gaining some Congressmen, but the Republicans are equally confident of hold-ug their own, if not increasing their number. There seems to be little probability of the Democrats gaining control of the Legislature. New IlAMrsuiUE.-The judications aro tbat there will bo no choice for Governor, tbat Kinney, Democrat, will be elected Congressman in tho First district, and Moore, Republican, in the Second, and that the Lesislature will bo Republican by a small majority. Massachusetts.-The probabilities are that Brackett will be re-elected Governor by a small plurality, and tbat tho Democrats will gain one membor of Congress. Nkw Jehsey.- The fight on Congressmen has heen lively in the close districts, and it will not excito surprise if the Demo crata gain one or two seats. Ruode Island.-The election will be close iu both Congressional districts with the chanoes in favor of the Republicans. Wisconsin.-Both parties are confident of electing their candidate for Governor. The Democrats are making a bitter fight against Congressman Lafallette, but tho indications point to hid election. The Republicans, however, generally concede tho election of a Domoorat in tbo Milwaukee district, The Democrats also claim that tbey will win in the Seventh dibtriefc. Indiana.-Tho Farmers' Mutual Benefit Association is a now faction in this state. Tbo Republicans will probably gain oue or two Congressmen, owing to the combinations with them. The indications point to continued Democratic control of the Legislature, insuring tbo reelection of Senator Voorhees. Minnesota.-With four full state tickets in the field, including a Farmers' Alliance, which, it is admitted, will cast 25 per cent of tho total voto'of tho �tate, tho chanceB aro slightly in lavor of tho Republican ticket. The Alliance people claim the state by from 10,000 to 20,000, and it is frequently conceded that either publicans claim all five Congressmen, but several districts aro alarmed by tho Democrats and Farmers' Alliance. Ouio.-Six Congressmen are conceded to the Republicans on a voto of two years ago. The Republicans claim several others will be elected. The interest centres in McKinley's district, and tbo news will bo anxiously awaited to-morrow night. Kansas. - Uoth parties aro confident of electing their state ticket. The Republicans claim tbo entire Congressional delegation, while tho Democrats claim the election of their candidates in the First and Fomth districts, and the Farmers* Alliance predict tho election of their men iu th,e Third and Sixtb. Senator IogallB is the paramount issue in the State and laughs at the possibility of Republican defeat. Illinois.-Tho Republican State Chairman olaims tho Legislature on joint ballot and probably a gain of a Congressman. The Democrats expect tj elect the State ticket, a majority of the Legislature and gain three Congressmen. Colorado.-There are two Republi can tickets in the field1, and the Dbtnocrats lire hopeful of the election of the State ticket and Legislature. On tbe othor hand the Republicans are conddont of carrying everything on the State ticket. Tennessee.-This State will go Demo, cratio aB usual. In tbo first Congressional district Butler, Independent Republican, will probably defeat Taylor, the present Congressman, and Snodgrass, Democratic will probably defeat Evaus, tho present member from tho Third district. Nebhaska.-The situation in this State oan fairly be termed uncortaiu. Vikginia.-Tho fight on Congressmen being hotly contested in the FirBt, Second, Fourth, Eighth and Ninth districts. In the other fivo tho chances are largely in favor of tho Democrats. Noktu Cakoi.ina,- Tbe contost in the State centres in tho Legislature. DOINGS OF ELECTION BAY! PUNGENT POT POUKKI.

Uicks, of St. Loais, editor of World and Works sends out the following November forecast: The Btorm movements central on Oct. 31 will be in active progress the 1st and 2d of November. Ordinarily those storms would clear the continent on and next to the 3d, but in the present instance continued storms may bo expected. Equinox of Mercury on tbe 4th and of Venus on the 5th, which combination, with moou's last quarter added, assures aotive and prolonged disturbances up to and bo-yon d the reactionary storms due about the 5th and 6th. Phenomenal Mights of the mereury will characterize the disturbances of this period. Very warm days will suddenly end in freezing weather. Heavy snow and sleet to the north, with hard rain and tropical storms southward, will be natural results. Between the Gtb and 10th a big boreal wave will sweep southward and eastward to tbe Atlantic. About the 10th mercurial readings will change in the West, moving eastward and growing warmer in their progress, culminating between the 11th and 15th iu Btorms of marked energy. Rain and snow may bo counted on, storm days being specially on and next to the 12th, 13th and 14th. Exposed Northwestern regions will not miscalculate if they prepare for a very cold wavo to follow tbeae storms, the westerly to northwesterly tangents of which are apt to bring touches of tbe blizzard. Cold, bright weather will follow up into the natural reaotion about tbe 13th and 19th. Moon's first quarter on the morning of the 19th will aid tho uatural tendency to stormincss on that and dates touching it. Cold will follow promptly. The elements of returning storms will show themsolvos to tbe West a day or two prior to tbe 23d, which date is tbe central day of tbo last regular period of tbe month. Tbe '23S, 24th, and 25tb, and days next before and after, will bring marked storm moveroouts of a decided Wintery oast. Make all suoh preparations as you would wish to have for cold, unpleasant weather at this time, and seo bow you will congratulate yourself when the time arrivos. Do not wait until tbe storm days. Then you will bo housed, and yourselves and stock will be exposed later to tbe crest of cold following the storms. Tbe month will end with a moderated temperature and reactionary disturbances well on their way to tbe Atlantio, A LOSS OF A MILLION AND A HALF.

He Replies to Governor Hill on the Question of � Re-enumeratlon. Washington, Nov. 3.-Secretary Noble has replied to Gov. Hill's letter relative to the oensus of New York city, in which be states that he, (Hill) baa failed to add a single suggestion of the slightest value; that it was wholly unnecessary for him to remind him of tbe provisions of the constitution relative to the enumeratian and apportionment of Representative of the eleo oral college, and bis imputation against the enumerators and census work is "so "entirely gratuitous and dumbfounded as to be slanderous, as you should know that your abnsive ^course could not tend to promote that fair and judicial consideration." He then refers to Governor HiU'B speech before the Hendricks olub when he says he bitterly assailed the census office, creating popular distrust and disinclination to respond to the enumerators, aud charging the Governor with being largely responsible for any inaccuracies tbat may exist. In conclusion be says: "As I have demonstrated tbe great body of people of the United StateB are content with tbe census and sustained by their confidence I shall proceed with the discharge of all my duties, correcting what I may think is rong, and fearlessly adhering to what I believe to be right. I regret the necessity of addressing you/in the terms I have employed, but I find my justification in tbe reckless intemperance of language, which is as much lacking in truth as it is in the dignity befitting your great offioe, whioh has in the past been filled by eminent men of political parties. Upon the merits of tho Mayor's application 1 shall reply to him." HASTINGS IN TIOGA OOVNTV. The Republican Meeting at Wellsboro a Great Snccesa.
