Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - October 16, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YE All-NO. 195. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. THUKSDAY. OCTOBER 10, 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS � EVENING EXPRESS KIN8LOE BROTHERS---FUBU8HKRS BREAK THE CONGRESSIONAL DEADLOCK. Break the Republican CongroBBional deadlock at onoe! The interests of the party in the whole district demands this and as the responsibility for the deadlock nor rests with Tioga and Potter counties it is earnestly hoped that the conferees from these oounties will "Ret together" to-day and consent to the nomination of Col. A. C. Hopkins, who has bad six votes to the other two eandidates three. If Hopkins is nominated he will not only carry Clinton ooanty, but bis candidacy will kid in eleoting the whole Republican ooanty ticket, which lnoludei a member of the Legislature, and as there is to be a United States Senator elected to succeed Senator Cameron, it is very important to secure as many Republican representa-tives as possible. The defeat of T. C. Hippie for the Senatorial nomination by the Democrats of this district, will materially aid the oanvaes of Mr. Hopkins in thiB couuty and it is earnestly hoped that the conference, which meets again at Wil-Iiamsport this afternoon, will view the sitnation in its true light and do justioe to Clinton oounty by giving it the Congressional nomination. This Bbould be done oheerfully and unanimously, and as the superior claims of Clinton have been clearly and foroibly presented to the conference it is not necessary to mention them in this artiole. The Republicans of this oounty only ask what is jUBtly due them and with Hopkins as their candidate they will sweep the field. The continuance of this deadlock is endangering the success of the Republican ticket in each oounty of the distriot, and even the suocess of the Congressional candidate, as the time is now too short before election to make a thorough canvass of the whole district. Break the deadlock at onoe'. THE STORY OF THEIR FLIGHT Details of flow Dillon and O'Brien Made Their Escape. LOCATED AT OHEBBOUEG, PEANOE my clemency, save your ago.

There is little time left for the Republicans of this distriot to make a nomination for Senator and the sooner tbe conference meets the better. It has been suggested that the eonference be held in this city and as Lock Haven is easy of access to the representatives of the other two oounties, with ezoellent hotel accomodations, it it hoped that the conferees will decide to come here. Several ezoellent names have been suggested as candidates and there will bo no trouble in finding a strong nominee. W ith the dissatisfaction existing among the Democrats at the action of the Democratic Senatorial Conference there is a good fighting chanoe for the Republicans. Give us a well known and popular candidate, and let the nomination be made as qnickly as possible. Two of the leading, most respeotable and energetlo Democrats in Clinton oounty have been defeated for important nominations this fall. J. N. Welliver, who aspired to Legislative honors, was first sacrificed and now T. C. Hippie, one of the most popular and ablest men in the party, is given a back seat because be wanted to occupy a Senatorial ohair at Harrisburg. Have the Democrats of this oounty and Senatorial distriot gone mad? At this rate a decent Democrat will fear to as-pire to offloe, knowing in advance that there will be no hope for him. T. C.Hipi'le was turned down by the Democratic Senatorial Conference in this distriot, bat he is not-the kind of a man to stay down. Ob! no, quite the contrary. The Democratic vote of Clinton county will more clearly prove this fact on the 4 th of November. The invention of smokeless powder has sealed the fate of brilliant uniforms for Continental soldies.
