Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - November 25, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEiVE-NO. 229. LOCK HAVEN, PA., TUESDAY. NOYEMBEK 25. 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINSLOK BBOTHEB8 - - -J"^"^"*"? CURRENT COMMENT. George Goudd, the President of the raciOa Mail Sleamsbip company, in said to have iu him tlie stufT Tor a great fiuau-cier. Mb. Parnell'9 persisteucu iu tbe lead-erabip of the Irish paity is likely to coht tbe aauso of homo rule the loss of a large number o( Liberal supporters. There are a great many Liberals who will nut oou-doQo fiucb Aa oS�nse as tbe Irifab leader haa oommittcd. TuK question of a site for tbe Cbioago ErpoBiliOD has been settled again-and, let us hope, finally this time. The main eihibitioa is to be in Jaokeoo park, tbe art gallery, music hall and eleotrio display . o n the lake front, and tbe additional exhibits in WaeUiugton park. A mob which attacked the jail at llunt-i ogdon, Tenn , for the purpose ol lynching a man accused of murder was summurily repulsed, and one of their number was shot. The defenders of the jiil are to be congratulated on hafing given tbe mob a lesson. It is a lesson that needs to be enforced in more than one place in the Southeast. A. commdsication of a decidedly personal nature has been received by the Express. Among other things it urges the voters to change tbe control of the present city council if they ever expect a reform in the method of btreet improvements. As no namtt accompanied the communieation of course we cannot publish ft, and could not do so even with the name of the author in its present shape. Reports from Berlin are to tbe effect that the four physicians in that city whom Pro/easor Koch has intrusted with the exclusive practice of bis treatment for tuberculosis have a monopoly which is rapidly making tt'cm rieb, and thiit they are charging putients from $15 to (25 a visit. The scarcity of the lymph and the eagerness of visiting doctors to obtain it have also led to the most exhorbltant charges. There seems to be little hope that tbe po3r will be bencBtted by the remedy for some time to come. Thjb time for tbe meeting of the next National Republican Convention is eighteen months distant, and many things may happen in the meantime to aflect the fortunes of the Kepublican leaders. But there is one fact which at present must be recognized by every observer of the political situation, and that is tbat no other candidate for tbe nomination which that convention will make is recoiving more consideration in the Republican press and in Republican circles generally than Secretary Blaioa. Whes the Amtrican Economist called the Democratic victory at the election *Hhe triumph of lying,'' it not only told the truth, but bad English company in the telling of it. This is tbe way the London Financial Times aocouuls for the "ex-ceesiv* unpopularity" of tbe MoKinley bill abroad. It says that it *'was largely due to exaggeration on the part of tbe American Democrats, who have spared no eipeuBB or misrepresentation in raising opposition to tbe scheme." With all his eagerness to get and keep our "markets, John Bull cannot help feeling and expressing contempt for Democratic campaign lies. _ PEB80NAI. PENCILIMOB.

Chicago, Nov. 24.-Everybody about army beadquaitcrB was busy to-day. Telegrams weru being constantly received from points over tbe west, and General Miles was sending replies and direeting the movement of troops. A large force, larger than has been mustered in tbe west siece 187G, will be in the region about Pine Ridge by Wednesday. The reinforcements are sent by reason of tbe advices received from General Brooke, who is disposed to take a very serious view ol the situation. General Miles attaches little importance to the reports of a plot to assassinate General Brooke. The orders given to the officers regarding the suppression of the ghost dance are largely discretionary. Their mission is to restore confidence among the Indians and allay tbe excitement. Tbey are expected to nee their own judgment as to the means for accomplishing that end. If it is considered the better policy to suppress th(!Sedauoe6 at once the officers have the means for so doing. However they may deem it belter policy to employ less barbb measures at tbe start. the war departmekt assi.�ting.

The thought seemed to be in every mind and the words on every lip that tbe Grand Arnjy of the Republic should be made to round np one-hair million comrades this yaar. Tbe inspiration of this thought was not mere pride in numbem, but the advanfjige of membership to individual character, and the advantage of numbers in increasing the potency of tie order In IU lofty worli of Fraternity. Charity and Loyalty. It is on tbe gronnd of Individual and public benellt that it becomes our duty to increase our membership. There are yet several hundred thousand worthy veterans who served bravely with us on laud or sta, not yet wltli us in this organization, if we do not bring in ilay thousand or more ol them this year tbe fault will be our own. This means an addition of about ten to every hundred, who doubts but this can be easily done? What Post will hold back? Let all Department Cummiinders at once take the leadersl^lp and dlrecUon In this work in their respective departments. 1 have seen enough to know that they will find cordial and entbuslastlu response, both from Individuals and Poets.

The Pennsylvania Railroad Company is sending strict orders to ail passengei conductors in reference to passing children over five years and under twelve years of age free. They quite recently diacbarged one of their beat conductors for a violation of this rule. It appears they have deteot-ices on the diSetent branches of tbeir great road watching, and they giv* fair warning to all that the rule must be obeyed. Children under fire years of age are carried free, over five years and under twelve years at one-balf rate tickets, over twelve years full fare. Any parties wishing to travel and take their children with them liad better heed tbe warniDje as tbe oondoctors must carry ibis order out or off goes their heads. Often they are placed iu a very unpleasant position, especially where women are on trains and ohildren with them and in some cases are poor and have not tbe money along to pay tbeir fare for them. Iu snob oasea tbey must leave their children at home or they may be obliged to get off and return home on foot. This may seem hard in many oases, but the railroad company dare not discriminate, and so there is no other alternative. Gat your tickets and be sure you are right before you start from the home sution. TBANSPIRINGS OF A DAY. News of Interest for Onr Man; Seadors to Peruse.

Miss Katberine Crogo is new to Lock Haven, but her impersonation of "Gertrude," the orphan, was all that could be desired. Good work may be expected from her during the week.

Kent and the descriptive fantasia "The Dance of the Goblins" and harp solo, by Georgia Dean Spauld-iug were the best tMnga of the several fine musical selections.

The gas wells which have been furnishing fuel for the Pittabnrg manufactories have failed, and tbe supply is exhausted. Experts have said repeatedly that there are surface indications near this city which indicate that gaa or oil might be found if wells were pnt down. The question of putting down a teat well has been talked of and tbe prelioiinary steps taken towards forming a company to furnish capital and sink a well. Now is the time to pnsb tbe project.

On October 22 Thomas Mattintz was arraigned for trial, charged with attempting to murder Di. Trinidad Floraes.

Senor Gustavo Chamorro, who ttood next to Dr- Floraes, picked np a chair, but almost immediately fell to the ground being shot through the brain. At this juncture Senor Gregorio Bojafl, an old gentleman, falher-in law of the first victim, bravely closed with tbe prisoner, who did not hesitate to draw the trigger, and a ball passed through Senor Bojas' mouth, coming out the back of bis neck. Senor Bojas is in a preoariooa condition, bus tbe physician attending him says ha will probably recover. After shooting Senor Bojas, the prisoner made a dash for liberty and escaped, but was captured three days later. "Led Astray" to-nlgbt. The Christmas Nomber.
