PKICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPKESS INSJ.OK HKOTMKKS - - - VUliLISHKKS CURRENT COMMENT. Tine man who publicly accuses another ol all manner of wronc doing, and then when pressed is uuablo to make good his chargeR, is in a far worse fix than the man ho aocuses. A Hkooki.yn school principal is denouncing immorality in Longfellowa poems, and a church in Newark has admonished its young women against ehewiug gum. Has the- world grown so moral that wo have time for sucli reforms as these A BOLD EXPRESS ROBBERY Masked Men Hold up a Traiu and" Secure Big Booty in Ohio. Trii.y, the world moves at a rapid rate, and vast are the changes in forms and coromonios. A pipo organ has been purchased for a Quaker meeting house at Hannibal, Mo., and a colored woman has sued a Texas paper for damages fur hav ing called her a white woman. Fifteen hundred hard-handed laborers in the Homestead tiled Jltll of Carnegie, I'hipps & Co., near Pittsburg, were made happy on Monday by the announcement that thoir wages would be increased Blightly more than fivo per cent. The increased price of steel has been the cause of this material rise in tho price of labor. Pkichai'3 the most important political hauls of the year will bo fought out within the next six wookB in Major McKinley'.s district in Ohio. The district, by thu Democratic gerrymander has been converted into a Democratic stronghold, with several thousand majority. It may be, however, thai Mr. McKinlej's pre-eminem abilities, his national reputation, his poi-aonal magnetism and the regard all men have for him may win victory from the jaws of defeat. Never was a greater wrong done against an honest public character. Men of all political creeds should strive to defeat it. Farmers should remember the views and pledge of Senator Dolamater, the lie-publican candidate for Governor, concerning tho oppressive taxation to which the farmiug^community is subjeoted. In his, speech at DoylestowD, on the 23d uli , he said: "The farmers hare been paying more than thoir sb/ire of taxes in proportion to the tax on other taxable proporty, and something will be done by the next Legislature, if you send tho right kind of mon to Harrisburg to look out for your interests; and I say right hero that I will do all I can to relievo the unjust taxation discriminating against the farmer if I am elected Governor." Mr. Andrew Carnegie, who ban jusi returned from Europe- with the large delegation of iron and srecl manufacturers, says that during his stay abroad ho was brought into intimata relations with many manufacturers and business men, and heard a number of them who were making preparations to start up largo manufacturing establishments in this country. Among these are some tin plate manufacturers from Wales, lie is satisfied that tbo operations of the McKinley bill will result in the development of numerous new industries and business concerns in this country, as the advantages are now decidedly in our favor.

Tho steel engraving "Before the Battle" is a very "handsome picture presenting tho portraits of Minna living, the popnlar poetess and her Holdier husband.

The literary part of the number is excellent, and can only be equalled by tho higheBt priced periodicals. Tho open-ing story "One October Morning" is well illustrated and well written. "Imprisoned Rainbows" by Jjoui.-a Jamison closes a series of interesting articles on precious stones. "Tho Watch of tho Big Heart Lode" by M. G. McClelland is one of the best stories we havo ever read in a long while, and "Three Warnings" by Lucy II. nooper will fascinate every lover of the supernatural. "Things Worth knowing" and the household department aio brim full of interesting and useful matter. This favorite magazinu always grows better and bettor. Terms, Two dollar.-* a year.

Tiffin, O., Oct. 2.-A bold express robbery was committed on a Cincinnati, Sundusky and Cloveland train south of here this morning. Tho Adams Express Mosscngor was held up with masked men armed with revolvers. The safe was ransacked and tho loss is supposed to be several thousand dollars. The robbers escaped. A special from Carey gives an account of tho traiu robbery which occurred between that placo and Urbana. Immediately- after the train left Urbana two masked men, with cocked revolvers, entered the express car and compelled the Adams Express messenger, A. L. Scud dor to throw np his hands. They then tied him securely, robbed tbo safe of packages containing several thousand dollars and other valuables. While tboy were at work a brakemau attempted to enter the car and was shot at by one robber. lie gave the alarm and tho train was slowed up to capture the robbers, but they jumped from the train just as it was entering West Liberty and disappeared in the darkness, it then being about :i:20 o'clock. Messengor Scudder was bound in his ohair with a wash-lino that the robbers brought with them. One of them, whom tho other called "Jack," tried to kill Scudder before leaving tho car. Placing his revolver to his head he pulled the trigger, but the cartridge failed to explode. Tho other robber prevented him from trying agaiD. When tho train pulled out of West Liberty tho two scoundrels again got aboard, holding the entire crow at bay. Scudder who had been released, opened fire on them with a pistol from his car door, but was compelled to retreat. The robbers kept on board until Bellofontaine was reached, when they again jumped off and disappeared. Theofliceis at Uollefoutaine are searching for them. Scudder is about fifty years old, lives in Cincinnati, and has been on this run since the Adams Company took charge of tfce express on it, about three years ago. He was previously in the same company's employ on the Ohio River Hues. Ho had just received his month's salary, and that was among tbo booty. A 1SIO 35 CBXT CIRCUS. SUING FOR HER RIGHTS. The Widow of Landlord Line* Want* What is Ilor I>ne. New York, Oct. 2.-Joie Lines and his wife, Jane l\, conducted the American noiel at Ea&ton, Pa., irom 1850 until his death in July last. By their joint efforts, as Mrs. Lines claims, they have accumulated about $200,000, $-10,000 of which was in real estate. Her husband's will gave her the furniture and piano for life aud an annuity of $700. The residue waB to bo divided, one half go to William Lints, of Wilkes-Uarre, a putative son by Sarah LuU, and the other half to nieces and nephews. It appears that prior to his death, Lines executed a will of trust giving tho Union Trust Company about $15,000 in stocks and bonds, mainly for the benefit of the reputed sou. Mrs. Lines" has begun suit in tho Supreme Court to set this deed aside, because it is a scheme as she asserts to cheat her on! of her rights. .ft'DGK SAWYER SURPRISED W. Clark Russell, famouH for his delightful sea-stories, and author of "The Wreck of the Grosvcnor," "Marooned," etc,, contributes tho complete novel to tho October number of Lippiitcott'.i Miy-Kim. The story is entitled "A Marriage at Ser:e::, aDd makes them as refreshing to thy miud as is a dip in tho ocean to tho body. Clear;, healthful, invigorating, Clark Iiu-isc!i's stories are tho bet-.t antidote to the morbid novels which arc at prci'cntinund^i'rig the market. Tboy say money cannot give happiness.

Washington, Oct. 2.-John Sawyor, of New York, on behalf of a majority of tho committee that has been investigating tho administration of affairs in tho Pension Otlice under tho Cooper resolution, stated to-night that ho learned with surprise that tho minority report of the result of the investigation had boen given out. He was surprised because it was well underwood by tho oommitteo that the tivldeuce was not all In aud tho investigation was not closed. Taking up tbo allegations in the mitinrity report one by ono .Judge Sawyer Haid there was not ono of the statements that ho believed was borno out by the evidence, incomplete though i' was. Li� "And the praotioal result of alt this is what?" �- - "That the Independent Republicans who supported Pattison, although a Democrat, because they had faith -in his determination to work reform by his administration, as well as faith in his personal -integrity, arenow convinced thatoircumstanoes are stronger than the Governor, -and that after Pattisou's utter failuro independence is folly. Therefore they fall back on the regular Republican organization,-therefore wcakouing tho reform party'-and-making party lioes more rigid -than, ever.- Next year the Republicans will be nutted,- but the Democrats wilt be divided-;and paralyzed." "PatttHon was ono of: t*io 'tidal-'wavu' disclosures, wasn't he?" "Yes, and like all the others, ^he proves to be a misfit." Here followed some remarks about Presidential timber, in which Pattisou was declared to be an impossible candidate, "for tivo admirable roasons. First' because ho iBn't fit for it, and second, if he were-just t:io man he is ineligible." (Becanss of age.) "And that settles it?" . � "But that was not needed. The young ninu had a great chance.
