Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - November 17, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAK-NO. 222. LOCK HAVEN, PA., MONDAY. NOVEMBEK 17, 1890. PBICE-TWQ CENTS EVENING EXPBESS KIN8I.Ok: BKOTHEB8---PUBOSHKKS THEiCOSTEST TALK. Sumo of the Demoorats of thi> Conereg Bional district talk of oontosting the seat of Hon. A. C. Hopkins because he was only elected by a majority of 51 over Hon. M, K. Elliott, the Damooratic candidate. We doubt Tery much if Mr. Elliott has ka'.hotized this talk or bss oonsonted to make a contest, bat if be has let bim go abead and prove hie right to a seat to wbiefa A.. C. Hopkins was honestly and olearly elected to fill. A Democratic HooBe might be willing to nnseat Mr. Hopkins, but Hr. Elliott would gain very little by it nor oocopy the seat very long. Bboald Hr. Hopkins be chested out of bis seat be would be renominated and re-elected'by snob an emphatic majority as to silnee bis jealous enemies. The Philadelphia Preit of to-day has the following to say in regard to the matter: "It i� stated that Mortimer P. Elliott, tbe defeated Democratic candidate for Congress In the Sixteenth district, intends to contest tbe eltotion. His successful sompatitor, Albert C. Hopkins, bad but flfty-one majority, but that ought to be aufBoient to lecure bim the seat unless there has been fraud. We do not uuder-ataad that fraud is alleged, b^t that if a eoctest is made it will be on the ground ol eertain loose practices at several polls in Tioga County and one poll in Potter. These things were clearly not done-if done at all-with any purpose to aid Mr. Hopkins, bat, as these districts gave him a majority, if their Totes should be thrown out on some technicality a Democratic House miKht be pursuaded to deprive bim of his seat. At present Mr. Elliott is so ill that be_ is not giving this matter bis attention, and the talk of contest has been started by yartisana who assume to be his friends. Cpon bis recovery Mr. Elliott is very likely to put a stop to the whole busineas; be is not a man wbo would de. aire to defeat the popular choice by means of a technicality." CURRENT COMMENT. Thkke are upwards ol 8.000 practicing pbyeiolans in the State of Pennsylvania. This is one doctor to about every 650 people. Leokidas M. Miller, tbe Democratic Congressman from Oabkosh, is a full-blooded Greek, tbe first man of that race wbo erer held a seat in the Congress of tbe United States. SnBRiFF-ELKCT CossEL, of Philadelphia, announeed on Thursday that Frank Willing Leach, Senator Quay's Private 8�er�tarj, woald be his Real Estate Deputy. The salary is 8,000 per year. Sicoking imported cigars is very much like drinking obampaigne. More of the Utter is oonsumed in this country than is made In tbe Cbampaigne district. So too with car fine bigfa priced cigars. About 40,000,000 are annually imported, but at the very lowest estimate, about 500,000,000 are conaumed. Tee United States Fish Commission promisee to make ahad plenty along our Atlantic coast rivers. They have been turning young shad fry into these streams by the milliona this fall, not the minute things heretofore turned adrift in the upper watan of the rivers, but fisb of some size, wbioh were grown in land-locked ponds near the ooatt, where they escaped all tbe daogera of early fiabhood. There is is more trouble ahead for tbe Columbian Exposition. Secretary Win-dom ii sotaatisSed with the Chicaeoeaque manner in which the government appropriation for tbe abow baa been handled and baa aubmitted a statement to theCon-greaaional Inveatigating Committee. It is annoanted that tbe subject will probably b� taken up by Congress at its coming aaasioD, and tbe resulting inveatigation may postpone the already backward eu-tarptlae atill further.

HE IAS CROOED FOR YEARS A New Pinanoial Sensation in New York Creates a Big Stir. DOINGS or A PEOMINEBT BEOKEE Albert U. Smith, Member of a WeUiKnown Firui, Gailty of Beventy Foreerles, \K-areastinK 83ao,000-De Acknowledaea His Goilt �Dd Canuot Escape e Ijodc Term of ImprlBonmant. New Tobk, Nov. 10.-Albert H. Smith, junior partner in the brokerage firm of Mills, Robeson & Smith, No. 96 Broadway, is a prisoner at police headquarters, charged with over seventy forgeries, aggregating i35O,0O0. Smith has acknowledged his guilt, and has turned over all his property for the benefit of his creditors. The discovery of the forgeries, which cover a period of six }ear5,wa8 accidentally made on tSaturday morning by a stock clerk in the employ of Mills, Robeson & Smitb. In his confession Smith says be used the money obtained by his forgeries to reimburse customers of the firm who had lost money on his suggestion. Before his arrest he made a clean breast of bis doings to his associates in the firm. facts made public. Although the case is not yet complete Inspector Byrnes, aware of the excited condition of the money market, and fearing that the matter might be used by Wall street sharps, determined to make public the raal facts of the case. Smith's method was something akin to that of Bedell, the clerk of tbe firm of Shipman, Choate & Laroque, who was sent to prison for a long term recently. The loss, resulting from Smith's misdoing, will fall upon the firm of Mills, Robeson & Smith, which has been in ei-iatence since 1872, and which has been held in the highest repute. TO save HIMSELB-. About six years ago Smith became embarrassed, and to save himself adopted tbe soheme which has led to bis downfall. He would buy seven, eight or nine shares of first class stock, and by adding a cipher or the letter T raise the order to seventy, eighty or ninety shares. These be would deposit with the firm aa a private account, and thus made his partners responsible. The shares were in course of time hypothecated with the Union Trust Company, United States Trust Company, Chemical Bank, Pbtuoix Bank, Mechanics Bank, Fourth National Bank, Nassau Bank, of Brooklyn, and Russell Sage, until the amounts secured reached between ?20,000 and $30,000 in each case. now it was DiaCOVEIlED. Smith's forgeries might have continued indefinitely if stock clerk W. A. Watson, had not dlBooverad that tbe figures in a eertifloate turned in by Smith on Saturday had been raiaed. An investigation followed and showed that Smith had purchased but seven shares instead of seventy as announced on the face of the certificate. This led to an overhauling of the books of the firm, and then all oane to light. At a subsequent couforenco with his associates Smith made a full eoufes-sion and then went to his home. No. 204 Columbia street, Brooklyn, where he was arrested. IS a I'ROMINBHT CHORCnMAN. Smith is a promioeut ohnrohman and member of aeveral clubs. Knowing that the eipesure was inevitable he sent in his resignation to all the clubs previous to his arrest. Smith's crime is forgery in the first degree, and as he has confessed his guilt, he cannot escape a long term of imprisonment. He is 45 years old and a childless widower. All of Smith's forgeries are not a total lose to tbe firm, as about a fourth can be recovered. The net loss will be �270,000. ACQUITTKD OF MUUUER, End of the Miller Trial at Emporium-A Tordlct of Kot Oallty. Emi'0UIC3J, Nov. 15.-In tbe case of Albert Y. Miller, charged with the mur-der of Christian Drum, af'er a fair and impartial trial of six day's duration, ended to-day at 5 p. m. after the jury had been out two hours, with a verdict of not guilty. B. W. Green, P. R. Colter and S. W. Smith defended the prisoner. District Attorney Metzger was assisted by Johnson & MoNarney for tbe Commonwealth, Probably fifteen hundred people awaited the verdict. When the prisoner was made free very many congratulated bim. During tbe trial be was as unconcerned as an ordinary spectator. The oaee baa excited much interest and is the topic of conversation on all aides to night. six miles from here, occurred last evening and destroyed every store but one in tbe town. The fire broke out in tbe rear of Carlisle's grocery store, burning the postoffioo building, office and residence of Dr. Gregory, R. H. Moore'a residence, general store and reeidenoe of J. L. Bayler, residence and large store of J. Edinger, and two other buildings. Loss between 435,. 000 and $40,000, with little insurance. A mmi OF THE SERPENT. Be Telia of Hla Awful Eziwrlnoe On the NiEfat of the Wreck. CoRituHHA, Nov. 16.-The British gun boat Lapwing, brought the Serpent's aur-vivora to Corrnnna to-day. An Associated Press sorrespoudent boarded the Lapwing on her arrival and had an interview with one of the survivors named Burton, wbo said that the Serpent struck tbe covered rock about 10.30 o'clock Monday night, tbe weather at the time being dirty but not foggy. All bands were below ezsept tbe officers and six watobmen. Immediately after the shock all wbo were below rushed to tbe deck. The crew obeyed the orders of tbe officers and there was no panic. A large boat was soon lowered, but it was amasbed to pieces and the occupants perished. It then became evident that it would be useless to lower another boat. Another attempt to throw a cable ashore also failed. Meanwhile the men were being waahed ashore. Burton aaw one wave vrash twelve men into the -sea. About an hour after tbe Sarpent atruok the captain gave the men leave to save themselves aa they thought beat. Barton jumped overboard, having a life bait around hia waist, as had all the men on watch. Nobody followed him. After swimming for two or three houta, battling with the immenae wavea all tbe time, he reached calm water and landed in an ex-hsueted condition, although his only injury was a alight abrasion of the leg. Tbe night was pitch dark. I.lt�rary Notci. The Christmas edition of tbe Coamo-politaa magazine is one hundred thousand copies. The order, as originally Riven to the printera, waa for 85,000 copiea, but while on tbe preaa it was thought advisable to increase the number to 100,000. It containing a feature never before attempted by any magazine, consisting of 122 cartoons from tbe brush of Dan Beard, the now famous artist, wbo did such wonderful illustrating in Mark Twain's book, "The Yankee at the court of King Author." The frontispieces of the Cosmopolitan have of late beoome noted for their beauty, some of them having as muoh as four printings. That for Christmas, while in but two printings, is not behind anything that has preceded it in artistic merit. An excellent illustrated article is one on teapots, by Eliza Ruhmah Soidmore. Literary Boston ia treated with numerous portraits, and an article which comes with tho ninetieth birthday of Van Moltke, sketches the life of the great Pield-Marahal an intereating way, and is by Gen. James Grant Wilson. Elizabeth Bisland has one of her charming artioles.
