Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - October 6, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania 1r fHf � NINTH YEAli-NO. 18(J. LOCK HAVEN, PA., MONDAY. OCTOBEK G, 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS jnhlok .ekot.ih.cs---i'(/jii.xsjikks CURRENT COMMENT. As the pumpkin lias no rival among fruits this year, it it> treated with more nj-speel tbau formerly. Be.njami.v Fhanklix has beeu in his grave a hundred years, but it is not too late to make au attempt to break his will. The prico of ice baa gone down aud the prico of milk has gone up. Both are signs tbat winter is at hand. Ckab apple culture is an important industry id Arkansas. But the paittcular business of tbat State attracting National attention is the ono in wbicb Republican candidates are abot to prevent their election. . BOLD, BAD BANDITS BAGGED "wo Men Who Held Up a Train Run Down by a Detective. THE EOBBERS' OUT GAMG IS CUSTODY TnE Idaho farmers do not seem to be uneasy about the ruin tbat is predicted for them by the Free Traders. The Republican majority ou Weduesday was larger than was cxpocted, and it followed immediately on the passage of the Tariff bill by Congress. One whole section of the Tariff law was omitted in the engrossment, notwithstanding the extreme care with which it was said to have boon revised. This complaint is becoming altogether too commun in both National and State legislation. A couple of good newspaper proof-readory would relieve it without trouble. Just look after your stova pipes and chimney flues before you yield to the temptation to get rid of the chill aud damp by "lighting a little fire.'" A small bit of caution and a trifling cash outlay to the expert stove man may save you a heap of trouble. Sheet iron will get rusty, and unused chimneys will accumulate dirt. Twelve thousand Mormons are now residents within the Territory of Arizona. This may not be to the benefit of Arizona, but the more the Mormon people are divided up among various States the less potent they will bo for mischief. So long as tbey live in communities where the Gentile population exaeeds tbnir �w� tfc"3- powerless. By a decision of the Minnesota Supreme Court, just rendered, the upper bertha of sleeping cars running in tbat State must be closed when not in ubo, Naturally, one would suppose that this rule would be observed as a matter of course, and it would not need a Supreme Court decision to enforce it; bat it has been stubbornly fought, the case having come upon appeal from an order by the State Railroad Commissioners. The only explanation apparent ia that the opening of the upper borths is sometimes an effectual way of inducing occupants of lower berths to buy the whole section to avoid being smothered. THEY DIDN'T MIND THE It A IN. When Cornered They lleach For a Winchester bat Are Oulckly Overpowered and Jailed-How the Two Men Uualdud aud Alone Stubbed the Otterville ^Exprepw- Searching For a Murderer. Lexington, Mo., Oot. X.- The Ovor-ville train robbers were captured at Elmi-ra, near here, and are uow in jail In this city. Detcotire Thomas Furlong has been quietly working on the case since August lGth, when the Missouri Pacific train was held up by masked men in Robbers' Cut near Otterville. Two weekB ago bo located the bold bandits. Keeping bis owu council and at the same time holding the men under a strict surveillance he finally completed the web of evidence tbat warranted their arrest. At 5 o'clock last evening, in company with two deputies, he proceeded to the house of Horatio S. Hines, a farmer near Elmira, and arrested him and bis pal, Frank Hoffman, a oouutry sport and all around tough, limes attempted to show fight and when bo saw who his visitors were, grabbed a Winchester rifle from the wall but was disarmed before bo could use it. The men were securely handcuffed and brought to this place. It was at first said that five men were engaged in the robbery, but it now seems tbat Hines and Hoffman unaided held up the train. While one covered the engineer with his revolver the other forced Express Agent Avery to surrender to him two packages supposed to coutaiu money, but subsequent developments showed tbat these amatuer bandits bad made a water haul, as the packages contained less than $100 worth of jewelry and railroad vouchers. owner, and every person so doing is a tres passed. Although it is customary for per sons to outer upon the grounds of others for the purpose- of fishing, nutting aud gunning, yut tbey have no right to do it without the consent of the owner. Being a trespasser bo must get off the promises, if directed, and must not stand upon bis going. He must move off as fast as he can, but he need not run. If be refuses to go the owner can use as much forco as is necessary to put him off, even if it results in the death of the offender, but you dare not use more force than Is absolutely necessary."

Duiiuque, la., Oct. 5.-At 4 o'olook this morning the residence of ex-Police man John MoBoe was destroyed by fire. A neighbor ran across and tried to arouse the family. Whilo knocking at the door the window in the upper story crashed aud MoBoe fell to the ground. For a few moments ho was senseless. When he re covered be began cryicg that his family were up stairs. The flames were quickly extinguished, aud the firemen entered at the top of a ladder. The mother aud three children were found and quickly removed. Mrs, Mc-Boo and the oldest daughter, Rose, aged 18, wore dead. The youngest daughter* liortba, aged Hi, and Charlie, 5 years old, were still alive. The boy died this afternoon. The girl was still alive but cannot recover. FOUR FEMALE DEPESTRIANS PUNGKNT FOT I'OUKltl. Tbey Couiit tho Eailroad Ties Bet reeu Eenovo and This OHy. A (iuotl Show That Brought Out � Large Audience. Kingston has always had a record of being one of tho best "circus towns" iu the State, and a glanoo at the crowded tents of W. L. Main's Circus and Menagerie last night, although there wore indications tbat rain would flood tho ring at any mo-meut, proved tbat. the statemeut still holds good. That Mr. Main deserved a full tent no ono disputos who saw the performance, of which an exchange truly said, "it ia not as big, but better than Barnum's." The riding, the trained horBeB, mules and ponies and tbe athletic work of the company were all that could be desired, and the one ring, covered with sawdust as well as the "Peter Jenkins" act brought back vividly to tho memory of old circus attendants tho time wbeu a village constablo mado himself the Bubject for laughter by his attempting to arre-Bt "the countryman." Tho afternoon performance was also largely attended, the pooplo watching the show whilo rain dripped through tbe canvas. Tho Walter L. Main show will always have well filled tents on future vieita to Kingston. The above is clipped from the Kingston Lender of Sept. 10th. This show will be in Lock Haven to-morrow; exhibitions afternoon aud evening at the foot of Church street. Won. Lost.

Mill Shut honu this Wt'tk. The steam saw mill of Hopkins it Weymouth, at Snow Shoe, will be Hhut down this week for tbe season. Want of piling ground necessitates tbe shutting down of tho mill so early in tho season. The Law of Treepae*. Uuuners and hunters are already tramping through the rural districts in quest of game, such as turtle doves, robins, flicker*, rabbits, etc. Tbey go over tho fields, break down fences, and when opportunity offora shoot down chickens aud bag them. Some persons think tbat sign-boards forbidding hunting, fishing or trcspassiu; upon private lauds, and cautionary notices in newspapers, are of little account, and that tbey may be disregarded with impunity, says the Allentown Democrat. Thi; is a mista'ce, as the law makes it an act of trespass to go upou cultivated or inclosed land for any purpose without permission, (even if there is uo aign-board,) and tho owner is entitled to recover aotual damages for such trespass. Whero the sign-boards are properly erected any person who tres-passes upon land bo guarded is liable not only to pay tbe aotual damages, but aluo a penalty not exceeding $2-j. If, howovor, ' the owner wisbos to avail himself of the provisions of tho law ho mutt, make his sign board comply with its requirements. There must bo at least ono sign board, not less than a foot square, to every fifty acres of land, upon tho farm lines, upou the shores or banks of tho hike, stream or pond; which it Is intended to protect, or in a conspicuous place upou the grounds tbat ai'u to bu thus pioteultjd.

The largest n^onoy contract ever given out by tho United State Government will be secured by l bo Cramps, the Philadelphia shipbuilders, aud preparatory work has already betn commenced. Secretary Tracy reached the deoision on Friday. The total amount of money involved in tbe building of tbe new battlo BhipB and cruisers will closely approximate $15,000,-000, and of this sum nearly $13,000,000 will bo paid to tbe Cramps, They are to construct two huge battle ships and one cruiser. Tho securing of the contracts for building the gigantic battle ships will steady and remunerative employment to a : large uurabor of men for three years. \ It haB already been determined that the ! battle-ships shall be exactly aliKC, but they will be either 12 or 18 feet longer than tbe original designs of tbe Navy Department. It has been proposed by tbe Cramps to make the ships 12 feet longer, aud the Government is considering the advisability of adding IS feet to their length, dec rotary Tracy is strongly in favor of big battle ships, and there is little doubt but tbat be will decide on the extrome length. The addition of 12 feet would bring the displacement to 9,SS0 tons, and ihn addition of IS feet to 10.000 tons. * The ships were originally deBignod for four lo inch, four S inch and a number of 'j-incb guns, all in turrets, but the change iu tbe designs will givo room for eight ti-inch guus, makiDg tho batteries the heaviest of any iron-clado afloat. For tho chuuges to bo made in the original designs tbe couti'itct price will bo increased acooidingly.

"Starligh" is a string of t ho brightest and most popular melodies oullod from here, there and everywhere. There is very little dialogue, buX there is plenty of tho beBt sort of singing.

Four young ladies who registered at the Fallon House Saturday eveLing were Misses Agnes Nicholas, Maud Sanders, Teresa Dieffenbaoh and Mame Dieffen-bach. They were members of the Reno-vo corps of school teachers and bad walked every step of the long distance from Renovo to Look Haven. The ladies gave the representative of the Express a kindly greeting when he called on them at tho Fallon House about G:30 Saturday evening and they related pleasantly the incidents of their trip. Tbey said that for several years tbe idea of walking from Renovo to this city had been one of their pet schemes, and now that they had accomplished the feat they were satisfied. The ladies left Renovo at twenty minutes before seven o'clock Saturday morning. They carried their dinners with thom and a short distance east of Glen Union rested one hour while eating. Almost the whole of the twenty-eight miles they walked upon the railroad ties. At ono place where a stone wall is being erected along tbe railroad the ladies were compelled to climb along tbe mountain Side. Tho day waB fair and the sun shone brightly, making it rather warmer than was necessary for the comfort of the pedestrians. They pushed on however at a steady gait, and as passenger trains flew by them returned the greetings of acquaintances in tbe cars ; who recognized them. At Queen's Run '� they had to cross the river on the railroad bridge and gladly accepted the services of a gentleman who offered to chape rone them across, Tbe bridge was crossed in safety, and the sun J entered tbo city. At 5:20 they reached; the Fallon House, a little bit weary, but | not near as much fatigued as might be \ supposed after such a long tramp over! railroad ties. Tbe school marms had just left tbe'supper tablo when the reporter: called on them, and they seemed in the best of spirits and were evidenty very proud of tho fact that tbey bad walked twenty eight miles that day.

At 10 o'clock the flames burst from the roof of tho Saturday News offloo, and A Chicago newspaper Bays that it is reported upon seemingly good authority tbat the Baltimore and Obio Railroad Compauy is having surveys and estimates made for a new entrance into tbat oity. In New Tork, in the case of Dr. Mc-Gonegal, oharged with causing tbe death of Annie Goodwin by a criminal operation, the jury last night returned a verdict'of manslaughter in tbe first degree.
