Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - October 11, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania mum rK*fc-,f->. - ---" - NINTH YEAK-NO. 191. JLOCK HAVEN. PA.. SATURDAY. OCTOBER 11, 1890. PRICE-TWO GEffTS EVENING EXPRESS INSUMC BUOTIIKKS - . fubu8hkk8 The Associate Judgeship. The Daily Democrat says that the people demand the election of an Associate Judge who resides near the Court House and tor this reason thinks that the Demo-oratio oandidate, Mr. Jamoa W. Clark> ahoold be eleoted because he resides within a stone's throw of the temple of justioe. An argument like this in lieu of a better one may satisfy the editor of our esteemed contemporary, but It will not oonvince a . aingle voter that Judge McCrea should not be elected to a position be baa so acceptably filled. He presides with dignity and possesses all the qualifications necessary to perform every duty required of him. Here is what the Democratic Renovo Evening Herald has to say on the subject: "In Clinton oonnty the fight is largely '�. at Look Haven, Renovo bong very quiet tor tali:. time in the campaign. This condition of affairs ia largely due to the way our town wis treated at the primary elec-tiona. We had three candidates for nomination on the Democratic ticket, Shaffer for Assembly, Roach for Associate Judge and Dowling for Commissioner, but they all got left. Hot only did Renovo get left but every one Id this part of the county. On tbe Republican ticket we hare Geo. B. McCrea, of our borough, the only oandidate on either tieket above Lack Haven. It behooves the people of this end of the oonnty to poll a large vote /or McCrea, and show them that at least one office muat^carae to this section.'!. The interests of our people demand a Republican representative on tbe bench and in Judge HcCreathe Republicans present a oandidate whom all votes can support, besanae he is in every way worthy of their "raffrage. Don't fail to vote for him. TlTOTTPIi1 MTT T flQ QTDTPFFW I GT00"0011 88 "JFiammetta" found ample U UU llulb IlllllllM U1 lUuIlEli.'

Washington, Oot. 10.-This afternoon Justice Samuel F. Miller, of tbe Supreme Court of the United States, was stricken with paralysis and is now in a serious con dition, though he is resting comfortably and bis mind is clear. Justice Miller, who was apparently in the best of health, was returning from the Supreme Court room to his residence. About 3:35 p. m. ho was on the West side of Thomas circle, within sight of bis residence, 1115 Massachusetts avenue. .'-John Woodford, his servant, who was standing in the doorway of tho house, saw the juBtioe approaching, when he was startled at teeing him suddenly raise his hand to his heart, then reel aud fall on the oar tracks whiah he was cross ing at the time Woodford hastened to the spot and found the justice speeohlesa, and apparently in a stupor. He at once secured a ooupe from a neighboring hack stand and with assist ance placed tho suffering man in it and had him borne to his house. Dr. Cook, who resides in the neighborhood, and Dr. Lincoln, who fortunately was passing at the time, were soon in attendance. They found that the wbole left side of the justice was para lyzed, but he was still able to recognize those around him. The justioe is now resting quietly, with no serious results anticipated by bis family. His mind is perfectly clear and he has never been for an instant speechless since he was stricken, conversing freely with bis wife and attendants, and to observers seem to be giving himself little concern about his condition. He recited, In detail to Mrs. Miller and ber son Irving, all tbe incidents of his visit to the capitol and his return home, laughing aud joking with them all the while aud telling them not to feel badly over his attack. Justice Miller baa been suffering nearly all summer from an attack of dysentery, but at no time was his illness sevore enough to prevent him from attending to his judicial duties while on his annual court circuit In the west. He returned to Washington list week feeling much better though somewhat weak. The judge had been at the capitol and as returning borne. When he reached Thomas circle he stopped the oar, stepped to the street and started to walk to his home, which is only about 150 feet away. To reach the Bide of the street noarost his house be had to cross the oar track and it was there that he fell. The judge, afterwards in telling Mrs. Miller of his fall, said he felt his knees giving way from under him and his legs felt so heavy ho ooald hardly lift them. Thinking that it was a sudden return of the rheumatic twinge which he had oftsn before felt, he made another effort to step forward, and as he did so, either tripped on the car track or slipped and fell forward on his face, loft side and arm, at the same time cutting his I forehead slightly and causing an abrasion of the skin ou the nose. Chief Justice Fuller and all the associate justices were on the bench, excepting Justices Field and Bradley, who are absent. Mrs. Miller and Irving Stiller aro in constant attend, ance on the justice and numerous telegrams have been received inquiring as to bis condition. uis condition hecomiso wok3e. Washington, Oat. 10.-There has beeu a decided change for tho worse in the condition of Justice Miller since 8 o'clock tonight. Dr. Lincoln was seen after leaving tbe house at 11 o'clock and said he considered Justioe Miller oritioally ill and thought his reoover) very doubtful. When the doctor left the justice was still asleep, and there were deeided indications that his brain was becoming affected. His Bleep was heavy and groat difficulty was experienced in arousing him. Lata iu the afternoon tbe Judge had a cerebral hem. orrhage and his condition is such that Dr. Lincoln says tbat a second hemorrhage will result fatally. While be may live twenty-four hours, the doctors arc of the opinion that to morrow morning will find him sinking rapidly. The justice's left, side is completely paralysed aud the numbness in his left arm has again re appeared. One of the physicians will be in attendance at his bedside throughout the night. ber rendition of tho difficult solo parts being much appreciated. Miss Taylor's "Boccaccio" was a great improvement on tho previous representation of that character in this city aud her Btnging and clover acting won her a large amount of applause. The choruses, some of which aro beautiful, were well sung and contributed much to the pleasure of tbe audience. Tbe orchestra was enlarged to ten pieces, and taken altogether tbe affair was a musical snocess, The above ia from today's Altoona Iribunt, aud refers to the attraction that will appear at the Opera House Monday night.

Even in the more advanced cases, where the terrible fever prevails, this successful medicine has affected romukablo cures. Those who are exposed to malarial or other poisons should keep the blood pure by taking Hood's Sarsaparilla. Furniture Men to Sleet. The Williamsport liepublican, says: "An important meeting of furniture men will bo held in Williamsport, beginning next Thursday, October 16, and continuing possibly two days. It is the quarterly meeting of tho Central Furnituro Association, and tho sessions will be held at lhe Park Hotel. This association, which hasn't had a meeting for Borne time, embraces Williamsport, Hughesville, LowiBburg,Mnncy, Picture Rooka, Look Haven, Athens, and several points in York State." . Bis Back Was Sprmlned. W. L. Carskadden, the fireman who jumped from the Pattison train when it waa derailed near Curtin Thursday night, was taken to his home at Williamsport where he was attended by Dr. Rich. The physician after examining the man pronounced his iojnrieB a very bad sprain of tho back. Had the train moved a little further after leaving the traok the engine would have tumbled over a steep embankment. JUDGE BADLY HURT! PUNGENT POT POUKRI.

Mr. Conn sel escaped with only slight injuries but Judge McCrea was badly hurt. When pioked up by Mr. Counsel and a Mr. Whiteman who lives close by where tbe accident occurred, he was unconsoious. lie soon recovered and as soon as a wagon could be procured he was brought to tbe Fallon House, where Doctor Burnley attended to his ' injuries.

' County Treasurer Glenn was by his bedside wben the reporter called and was doing all he could to make the Judge comfortable. Tbe escape of both the gentlemen from either death or more serious Injury is most miraculous. \ Miooplliinsons Blixture of Sense and Nonsense Scissored and Scribbled.
