Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - October 7, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAR-NO. 187. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1890.

IN THE BEAUTIFUL WYOMING "Jolm of Lancaster1' Visits tlic Bustling City of Wilkesbarre. Heiie we go, importing industries, al though the McKinley bill m Reneral has not yot gone into effect, and although the tin plate duty in particular does not take effect till next July. A $7,000,000 com pany has already been formed to build i tin plate mill at Baltimore, and a $1,500,-000 tin plate company at Duquesne, near Pittsburg. It is officially announcud that the Can adian Government intends to subsidize fast steamship lines on both the Atlantic and the Paoiflc, "thus giving the Canadian people facilities for transporting their pro-dues and manufactures in a rapid manner to the populous regions of China, Japan and Australia, and to the great markets of Europe," Meanwhile the United States will wait and watch the result of the experiment. Whenever the British newspapers are not saying nowadays that tho McKinley bill is specially designed to hurt British interests they say instead that tho American famine relief fund is designed to oatcli the Irish vote. The disposition to imputo unworthy and petty motives is the sign of an awfully small and ill uatured disposition. Certainly such sneers should not prevent any American from contributing liberally for the relief of the hunger stricken districts of Ireland, and just as soon as possible._- - New York Press: .Democratic newspapers are publishing a table of average tariff percentage, varying from 15. GO per oent. from 1858 to 1862 to about GO per cent, for the now McKinley tariff. It is easy to show a great big increase like this in tariff percentages when lots of things that used to be dutiable are on the free list now and don't count at all, and lots of other things have become so much cheaper that tho same duty that used to be 15 per cent, of their price may be 60 per oent. of it now. The higher a duty the greater the inducement to production any how, and the lower the price. The McKinley percentages may average a good deal more tnan 60 when the new bill begins to stimulate production and reduoe prices. How It Is Done Down East. Boston Transcript-First City Father-"Mere's a fine looking street." Second City Father-"You're right there. What's best to be done to it?" "Let's have it dug up for a sewer." "But wouldn't it be proper to pave it first?" "'Of course, I supposed you understood that. Then, after it is paved and a sewer put in we'll have it repaved." "All in readiness to be dag up again for the gas pipe? I see you understand tthe principles of municipal economy. And after we havo had it repaved a second time, theu what?" "Well, then, it will be in order for widening. There's nothing I admire bo much as system in the care and improvement of our roadways." Burning Property Near Kideway. UiDGEWAY, Oct. 6.-The large Baw mill at Shorts Mills, owned by the Empire Lumber Company, was entirely consumed by fire last night about 11 o'clock. The mill had not been in operation for three weeks, and the fire is no doubt the result of spite work. Loss on the mill and machinery about $15,000, with no insurance. A small quantity of lumber was also destroyed and an unoccupied dwelling, about a quarter of a mile from the mil], was also burnt down about 8 o'clock the same evening. A clue has been obtained and the guilty party will no doubt be apprehended. The Oldest Law* a it. * The oldest lawsuit on record waB on trial during the past spring and summer ' in the highest Russian tribunal at St. Petersburg. It was begun 500 yoars ago by the heirs of a dead nobleman agaiubt the oity of Kamenes-FodolBk for the ro-oovory of a large tract of land which the municipality had incorporated within the oity limits. It is needless to Bay that a decision has not bcon reached. A THRIVING PLACE OF NEARLY 40,000 Fuzey'B Predicament. To-dny'fGazelle i\ntl Bulletin. Two circuses in ono day is more than eooagb.

Wilkesbarre is liberally BuppHcd with good newspapers, which is one of the best evidences of tbe taste and culture of tho people. Tbe Jlecord,' published by Dr. F. C. Johnson and J. C. Powell, is the lead ing morning daily. It was founded iu 1832, and bucaino a daily iu 1871!. Mr, Miner was ono of the earliest publishers. Of late years it has improved greatly and is now reoognized as a nrst-olass paper in every respect. It covers tbe local field well and has an excellent general news service. Its young publishers are active, energetic and progressive, and fully appreciate tbe value of alive newspajwr in an enterprising city. Dr. Johnson devotes much attention to local history and publishes a valuable little magazine in connection with his newspaper for tbe preservation of historical matters relating to tbe Wyoming Valley. It is already in its third volume and is worthy of a place in every publio and private library. That the people of Wilkesbarre possess a literary taste, is shown in the splendid Oater hout free library with its thousands of volumes and splendid quarters. The His* torioal Society is another old and valuable institution, which contains in addition to its reports and books, large and fine collection of antiquities, tbe bulk of which have been gathered in the Wyoming Valley. One of the hardest literary workers in this city is Rev. Horace E. Haydon. He has been a resident of Wilkesbarre for 11 years, and nothwithstanding his clerical labors are onerous, be has found time to write several valuable books and pamphlets on historical snbjoots. Ho is now engaged on a genealogical work of great magni tude, in which the origin and history of soveral old Virginia families will be given, and many errors regarding them, which have orept into history, will be oorreoted. He has shown wonderful research as well as patience in the collection of materials, and although the work is heavy, exacting aud perplexing, he seems to thrive nnder it. It will make a volume of 800 or more pages, will be invaluable to public and private libraries, and a monument to the literary ability, industry and tenaoity of purpose of its accomplished author. Mi. Hayden has also accumulated a library which is particularly rich in American and general history, and in rare and curl ions books and pamphlets. It now comprises about 7,000 volumes and is steadily growing. Ho also possess many rare and interesting old manuscripts relating to Colonial times, and relics and antiquities in large numbers. He iB one of tbe most gonial and companionable of men, as well aB one of the most industrious, piouB and learned, and nothing affords him greater pleasure than to exhibit and explain his treasures of ait and literature to bis friends.

Tho baize covering on Speaker Heed's desk iu the National House of Representatives was removed on Saturday.

The clerks and bell boys refused ' to vacate the place and held tho lower floors, while the Deputy Sheriff and eight men held tho gallery around the rotunda. The town of Cheviot, Ohio, is lighted by gasoline at night. On Friday night Edward Conner, ono of the lighters, started ou his trip ou a light cart drawn by one horse.

That part of the Mayor's communication referring to steam heat was referred to tho Building Committee and the census docu ments to the City Solicitor. The petition of Fourth ward citizens for a side walk from High street to Prospect avenne was referred to the Street and Bridge Committee. The resolution offered by the Fire' Committee exonerating all active firemen from payment of Are tax was adopted.

On motion the Street Commissioner was instructed to go over tbe city and ascertain where sidewalks need repairs, and notify property owners to make needed repairs at once, and also to report to Council all Bnoh walks. Mr. Kistler called attention to the faot that complaints had been made oj streets at canal bridges not being lighted, and thought tho matter needed investigation. The resolution of tho Fire Committee exonerating all firemen from taxes was reconsidered on account of Its conflicting with a resolution adopted at a former meeting and which requires the list of firemen to be made under oath.

How They are Educatod aud Trained-A R�aular Routine. From the Ladies' Home Journal. Although all the members of tbe Van derbilt family entertain on a magnifi cent soalo they never permit their chil dren to remain up late at night, are extremely careful in their eduoation, and, in a word, are fitting them for life as well as any father or mother could do. It is one of the rules in all the houseB of the Van derbilts that tbe children shall go to bed early and rise early. The little boys and girls are up before seven o'clock in tbe morning. Tbeir nurses immediately take charge of them, see tbat tbey are proper ly bathed and dressed, and then they go down to breakfast, whioh is served at half-past 7 o'clock. It is an unpretentious meal, with plenty of fresh milk, eggs, oatmeal, and a bit of steak or chop tbat will add strength to their physiqne and color to tbeir oheeks. After breakfast there is an hour of study. There Is something for these little ones to do at all times during the day. They go through tbeir studies systematically, and then, about half-past 8, are taken ont for a walk. Tbey are allowed to romp in the streets in the parks to their hearts' content. At II o'olook tbey are brought home and a light lunobeon of milk and bread is served, after wbioh there are more studies -either Fronoh, German, or drawing- and then another breathing spell-it may be horseback riding, or a drive out through the Park and along tbe oountry roads. Baok they all como about 4 o'olock, and there is another hour of study, and then they are through for the day. Tbey are allowed to do just as they please until tea time, when, after their meal, they spend a pleasant honr or so with tbeir fathers and mothers and others who may drop in to call. Promptly at 8 o'cloek they are all in bed to sleep Bonndly, and get up the next morning and go through the same programme. So it is not strange that all the children of the Vanderbilt family are further in advance of their little friends in the matter of education. For they study, study, study, all the time. Tbey are all fond of music, and most of them oan play on the piano. Tho girls are learning to play on the harp, and tbe boys are famons among their friends as violinists and banjo players. If you were to see these children on the street, you would not for a moment suspect that tbey were other than children of parents in ordinary circumstances. They make no display at elaborate dress. Tbe eldest of Cornelius Vanderbilt's daughters is dressed plainly in little, pretty, ebeap dresses without any braid or ornamentation. She wears snug-fitting cloth jacketB, and the little oap that sits gracefully on ber head oonld bo duplicated for a couple of dollars. Tbe Vanderbilts are all religiously Inclined, and early on Sunday morning tbe children are washed and dresBed and sent to Sunday school. At church time they go to their father's pew, and sit there with him and their mother during tbe service. In tbe afternoon tbey go to Sunday school again. Tbey are never allowed to use horses or carriages, nor to go ont, except for a shoit walk as a matter of exerciso. The day is spent very quietly. They have an early tea, and in the twilight the children gather in the music-room while one of the ladies plays the piano or organ; Cornelius Vanderbilt, William K., Elliot F., Shepherd and the ladies of the families join for an hour or two in song. The boys sometimes bring out their violins, the young girls play tbeir harps, and there is an honr or two of the most delicious music tbat one could imagine. They Bing hymn after bymn, and when the twilight fades away the little ones are put to bed, to get up the next morning with the glow of health upon their cheeks, and begin their week of stndy and play, tbat shall fit them to beoome strong men and women, to administer wisely upon the vast fortunes that will soon bo theirs. Marie tireoawood's Opera Company. Mr. Will A. Harrold, the agent of the Marie Greenwood Comio Opera Company, is in the oity arranging with Manager Farnswo-Ui for the appoaranco of his star and solect company of thirty-six artists.

The* appreciation of the large audience was repeatedly demonstrated. Tbe scenes of The Sinking Ship," tbe "Kaft," and the Lunatio Asylum" were greeted with notable enthusiasm. The mechanioal effects are remarkable and amply justified the deepest interest of tho audience. Since the last presentation of ''The World" in this city the play has been pleasingly elaborated by the addition of new scenery, costumes, etc., and is now ranked as the most interesting and effeotive of all Amerioan dramas. Mr. J. Z. Little, as the hero, is supported by an excellent and efficient eompany. Interest in the play increases with the enactment of each scene. The drama will undoubtedly score a marked and well deserved success during tho entire week.-Baltimore Sun, Sept. 10, 1890, This groat attraotion will appear at our Opora House -to-morrow evening.
