Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - October 20, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania oetim NINTH YEAR-NO. 197. LOCK HAVEN, PA. MONDAY. OCTOBER 20. 1890. PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINHLOK BBOTHKBH---FUBU8HKB8 CURRENT COMMENT. It ousts New York city (4,500,000 to keep the peace. Bat then itta m Democratic city and to generally ran by Tammany Hall. � The Republican party and the McKin-Iey Tariff law are tbe great faotors in oar Sute fight, and not Senator Quay and the treasury a soore of yean ago. Farmers have not been diverted from their striotly farm work tbia fall by apple picking and eider making. There will be few apples to eat and still leu cider to drink than in former years. Ths population of New Mexioo, which would like to be admitted to the anion, is 141,883. According to tbe police count, the Federal census takers missed a bigger population than that in New York City. Thx estimated spring wheat crop of Minnesota and the Dakotas is given at VK),000,000 bushels, an amount that would furnish a bushel and a half to every man, woman and ehild in the oountry. If a similar average keeps ap we will have an abundance to export. Under a recent ordinance of Chioago, all the stalks in the cabbage gardens of that eity bad to 'be ploughed under by October 15th, to avoid the effects of deoay on the surface. The effects of the kraut taken off them are left to the care of Prov-idenoe and the doctors. A lumber firm has purchased three thousand acres of timber land in Elk county, is this State, and have already begun the erection of several large saw mills. At this rate how long will it be until our State is as denuded of timber as those ancient countries in Asia and Africa, whiob, from rioh and productive regions, have been converted into barren wastes ? FPM CHAIRMAN ANDREWS A Card Prom Headquarters That Should be Bead by all republicans. TBE TEUE ISSUE OF THE CAMPAIGN We are glad to learn that the political campaign Is becoming warm, not only in the large cities, but everywhere through-" out ths oouDtry diatrioU. The Republicans are beginning to arouse at the call of their leaders. That is all that is.wanted to carry forward tbe Republican cause to a triumphant conclusion. Let everybody awake, therefore, to tbe requirements of the time and tbe situation. Let him exert himself tones that a full' vote is polled in bis neighborhood. Philadelphia Pru�:-The address of the Republican State Committee to the Republicans of Pennsylvania calls tbe party to an aggressive fight during the remainder of the campaign. It presents in dear and unmistakable language the issues upon whioh the pending contest is to be determined, and they are suoh as to arouse every Republican to his duty, to his party, his State and his oountry. There has been enough of defense. Every question of vital importance that has been raised against the party or its candidates bas been fully and satisfactorily answered. Fbe campaign of personal slander, whioh has reached the lowest level in attempts to wreck' personal ehsrseter; the vicious assaults upon the Republican standard-bearers, renewed after sufficient answer has been given over and over again; the labored efforts to turn the canvass from onaof party principle into one of personal issues, oannot be ooantenanoed by fair minded men. Tbe address sounds the advance all along the Republican line. It means no more explanations or defense. It brings every true Republican into tbe front line to earnest battle for all that the Republiosn party represents and for the ' candidates who represents the party in its bast sense. No sincere Republican can hesitate in his duty now, and no sincere Republican will. "Blvo Our Side a Chance." In our article Saturday, taken from the New York . Bezald, entitled "Business Han in Theatricals," we note that "Casey's Troubles" is going to make a few stops before making a run In. San Francisco. Now wby can't we have this performance stay one night with us ? They must surely have a first-class company to contemplate so long a season in the metropolis of tbe western seaboard. Such a play would be a relief from the No. 2, 8 and sometimes No. 4 companies New York generally sends. Give us a ebanoe. Emigrants IMsyed. A party of emigrants, composed of men, women and children, arrived In this oity on News Express train yesterdsy, and remained in the waiting room at the depot until this morning, when tbey went West on Erie Hail. Tbey were Swedes, and their destination was Emporium. Conveniences for the Pnbllc. Carpenter Beok is at work fitting up the office of Register and Reoorder with pat ent riling cases.

Made Plain-The Work of Cleveland, Scott and Othar Bosses Plainly Visible In tin Grant Conspiracy to Defeat Republican Principles -Every Bepnblloan Should Rise Up nnd Effectually Bobaka tli. Scheme-Free Traders nnd British Svmpathlxers in-cercstad In the Movement. Chairman Andrews, of the Republican State Committee, has tasued^the following address: To ihe- Republicans of Fenntyhania: The Pennsylvania campaign of 18S0 will pass into history as one wholly devoted, on the part of the Democratic candidates and leaders, to personal abuse of Republican candidates and leaders. This plan of campaign was deliberately formed in New York, and it is to this hour under the direction of New York loaders, and almost wholly in the interest of Mr. Cleveland. His faotion dictates the counsels of his party, and every effort is bent in the di notion of another nomination for himself and another crusade in favor of free trade. That element of the Demooraey wbiob, under the leadership of Randall, believed in a tariff for revenue, with incidental protection, was attacked by the Cleveland administration, Its State ohairman in tbe person of Dallas Sanders, defeated by the use of the money of the millionaire, W. L. Scott, and liberal promises of office by Cleveland, and since the entire organization has been directed in the line of studied assaults upon the American system of protection and constant advances toward free trade. Recall the factional strife which brought this result-how Hr. Har-rlty, now one of tbe bosses of the Democratic party of Pennsylvania, betrayed bis friend Randall and turned all the machinery of the poetoffioe of Philadelphia against his political patron: how Cadwallader did the same with the Custom House; how only Colonel Oerker and Hr. Fox remain- j ed true to the interests and views of Hr. Randall. These heads were too noble for the axe, but thousands of others fell because they blocked Cleveland's pathwsy to free trade. The leaders of the Cleveland faction in Philadelphia were Pattisou, Cassidy and Sicgerly, and it was at the bidding of this trio of bosses that all who opposed the Free Trade plan were sacrificed. The vacancy occasioned by the death of one of tbe leaders has been filled by Harrity, who is far less able, and we ought to say less reliable, because of bis betrayal of bis patron, Mr. Randall. It is this trio which has accepted and is carrying ont the New York plan, intended to oaptnre Pennsylvania in 1890 upon personal issues, so that all the world may point to the fact that the mother of the tariff bas rejeoted her offspring. If the Republican majorities are reduced this will be tbe cry, starting with the Philadelphia Record, passing through all of tbe Democratic Free Trade journals of New York and in the land and dosing with tbe approving smiles of the London Timtt. The recent great battle in Congress had its meaning and it should be made so plain by all Republicans unto all Republicans that none may misunderstand it. The first protective battle was for tbe Administrative bill, which prevents all frauds upon the oustoms; the second, for the MoKinley bill, which shows a more complete adaptation of the system of protection than any measure ever before conceived. Every free trade influence was arrayed against it, and so desperate did its enemies become that they invited and reoeived the protests of foreign nations. Unable to deceive American sentiment they aroused the hostilities of foreign rivals in our home msrkets. Hore than this, the Democratic minority deliberately planned the scheme to fillibuster the measure to doatb,if possi ble, and, failing in that, to cause suoh a prolonged delay that their friends, the lm porters, could be enabled to forestall for months the market for American roanu factures. They did this to the extent of forty million dollars' worth of goods, and in this way through tbelr greed for money and their hatred of anything, however patriotio, which interfered with their getting it, gave the lie to all of their own professions. enemies of the h'kinley bill. The enemies of the MoKinley bill confessed in advance that it would protect Amerioan industries when tbey hastened to import all that they possibly could, and they did this to an extent whioh will prevent all of its many beneficent effects from being realized until after the elections of this fall have passed. We see, first, every effort to prevent protection; next, every effort to vitiate It for suoh a length of time as will enable the advocates of free trade to prepare for renewed l agitation of the subject, and for new assaults and appeals for modification or repeal. Herein all can plainly see the national bent of the struggle to capture Pennsylvania in 1800. It is the hope of importers everywhere, and tbey sre contributing liberally to the personal campaign inaugurated by the local trio of slander. There is a New York organization of like character and its organs are the New York World, the Post and theTunu. The special objeot of its assault is Senator Quay, aim-ply because he is one of the acknowledged Republican leaders. Every charge against him is false, and no man living will rise and say that he has personal knowledge of their troth. Hen are hired to oiroulate these bitter aoandals, and the pharasaioal part of the Pennsylvania outfit is busy searching for men, and liberally paying them, for giving circulation and countenance to statements the truth of whiob they have no personal knowledge of whatever. Men who do this dishonor Amerioan manhood. The State trio of Democratic bosses reserves for its special work assaults upon the character of Senator Delamater, and has invited the aid of a few men who have been notoriously disappointed in aspirations far too high for their deserts. The slime of slander has been spread over tbe State, in the hope of shaking the confidence of Republicans in their candidate for Governor. He has met every charge, but as rapidly as ho meets them, new ones are invented, and they will be invented until the end. Characterless men have been suborned, and they will try to earn the money of importers contributed for this purpose. The truth was never yet able to travel as fast as tbe lie, and the lie whioh has gold at its heels surpasses its usual speed. to make an aoobk8s1vk fight. - The time for defense and denials shonld pass. They have been made oomplete, and oonspiraeies to libel have been thoroughly established. These conspiracies are the natural result of Pattison's invitation to his party to make this campaign a personal one, and to thus obscure every national and State issue. In no other way could he get even the vote of his own party and there are grave doubts of his getting it as it ie. Few of -tins many Democratic: soldiers of the Union will vote for him after his veto of the measures projected by a Republican Legislature for their benefit. Benevolent men who see in our State's ohariUes beneficent institutions, will reject him for his cruel want of consideration to their just claims. Broad men who witnessed the lowdemagogneryof his pretentious walk to the inauguration will say he is too narrow to sit in the executive chair of this great Commonwealth. The blander of his executive session, called for the sole though teoret purpose of wiping out the Congressional dlstriot of Hr. Randall, cost the state more than half a million, and was but a part of the general plan to at least commit tbe Democratic organization of Pennsylvania to all of tbe purposes of the free traders. No one of the candidates on tbe State ticket has yet dared to avow his Democratic principles, and their general purpose is simply to deceive Republicans withont disgusting Democrats. Mr. Wallace had suoh little sympathy with this scheme that he refused to promote It, and would not now be in accord with tbe present plan if be did not see in it a chance to capture the Legislature, secure an election to the United States Senate, and a reapportionment of the Congressional and Legislative districts, so that the gerrymander of Ohio may be repeated in Pennsylvania and our Republicans robbed of fully half the representation whioh they now enjoy. Tbat will be tbe result of any surrender upon our part. "No," saya tbe Mugwump, who is almost invariably a free trader, "Pattlson was elected in :83 and Blaine carried tbe State in '84." Our answer Ib that if Beaver had been elected in '82 all of tbe election vil-lians usual to New York could not have counted out Blaine in '84, and so now with Delamater and the entire State tioket eieoted, the safety of the MoKinley bill is assured for at least a decade, the Republiosn majorities can be maintained in both bouses of Congress,a Republican President can be safely elected in 1882,and the best hope of the party can be realized. A break in Pennsylvania may mean the loss of all, and the man who permits personal prejudices, engendered in many instances by paid agents, in others by those who would ask the world to shoulder their revenge, commits a folly too great for comprehension. This folly will not find the ignorance upon which it must feed within the ranks of onr great party, and one whioh has seen many of its heroes maligned. Lincoln, shamelessly traduced as a baboon-Grant denominated a butcher-Logan an Ignoramus-Garfield paraded as a bribe-taker, and so on through a catalogue too long and too nasty to command decent consideration. Tbe slanders against our chief standard-bearer, all denied, all disproved, are no longer worthy of notice. Let us remand them to tbe past and stamp tbem into tbe dirt from which they sprang and where they belong, and let us thus stamp all future lies and forgeries, for to oar knowledge more are on the way. Let us faoe the cnomy without fear, answer their invcotive with fresh assault and push on to a viotory like unto that given to Hartranft in '72, to Hoyt in '78 and to Beaver in '86, when similarly assailed, and with courageous purpose and ever dosing ranks, we can and will do even better.

GOTTEN UP IB A BEAD ABLE POEM Saturday'rllsht Bahberles-At the Normal This Enalng-Kmiftrants Delayad-A Distressing; Aeehtent-Bloomlng Ont or Swnson-A Mghrjchool at Renovo-Laid Low by the Whaii The residenoeof Mibbael HoNarney, the boot and shoe ainu, at 337 West Main street, was entered by robbers on Saturday evening between the hours of 7:30and 8:30. The family trere all absent from the house at the fime,'�nd an entrance was effected by breaking; a pane of glass in a kitchen window, after which the lower sssh was removed. The robber or robbers ransacked the house completely. The gas was lighted in every room, and Hr. Hc-Nemey's neighbors seeing the illumination concluded there was a party being entertained at the boot and shoe man's residence. The robbers-were evidently in search of money as all the bureau drawers were emptied of their content*, and the pockets of clothing turned inside out. A Miss Long, of Mill Hall, Is visiting at Hr. HcNerney's and' her satchel was broken open and tbe contests thrown upon the floor. There was no money in the house, and the only ai tides missing are a light overcoat and a bit belonging to Hr. Ho-Nerney. Coal oil was spilled on the oar-pet of one of the up stairs rooms and a ourtain was partly burned. It was a bold robbery but the robbers failed to find the money tbey ware evidently looking for. Several other attempts at robbery were made the same night. At the residence of Mrs. William Biokford, oa West Church street, the cellar was entered, and tbe thieves helped themselves to a lot of firkin butter, and several loaves of bread. Tbey built a small -wood Sre on the south floor of the cellar and most have remained there some time while eating a lunob. Attempts were made to enter the houses of Mrs. Rankin.bn Water street, and Mrs. Hess on Church street, out the robbers were probably frightened away as they did not accomplish their purpose. At several booses the inmates were called to tbe door by the ringing of tbe door bell, and when the door was opened no person oonld be seen. It Is quits likely that when no response was made to the ringing of the door bell, an attempt at robbery was made. Several tramps were seen eating bread and butter near the old lime kilns yesterday and they are likely the party who did the robbing. As no information of the housebreaking was given to tbe polioe they knew nothing about it and the thieves had a good ohanoe to escape. Senatorial Oanfarancc. The Republican Senatorial conferees representing tbe counties of Centre, Clearfield and Clinton, met this, afternoon in room No. 10 at the Fallon House for the purpose of nominating a candidate for State Senator in the Thirty-fourth district. The conferees are S. H, HeCormiok, T. B. Reed and W. 1>. Harper, of Clinton; J. H. Odenkirk, J. A. Fiedler and M. F. Riddle, of Centre; W. I. Shaw, Charles E. Patton and Harry Washburn, of Clearfield. The Conference organized by electing W. L Shaw Chairman and 8. H. MoCor-mlok, Secretary, and adjourned to meet on Wednesday at 12 o'clock at Tyrone. No candidates were balloted for. Bis Overcoat Is Missing. Water Superintendent Keller was making some repairs to a fire plug at Bald Eagle and Henderson streets on Saturday, and while at work hung his heavy chin-oilla overooat ob a lamp post. Afterwards he bad business further up town, and when be went backjto look for his coat it was gone. The people in that section saw the coat hanging on the lamp post but no one saw it removed. What tbe Water Superintendent wants to know is, wbo has his overooat and when will It be returned. A Distressing accident. A young man whose name could not be learned, met with a fatal soddent near Howard on Saturday afternoon. He was out hunting squirrels and having shot one it lodged in the top of a small tree. In order to bring the game to the ground he struck against the trunk of the tree with tbe but of bis gun, when it was aooidently discharged, and the load received in his body. Physicians were called but the unfortunate young man died before tbe doctors arrived. Laid Low by the Wind. A small two story building was blown down in Renovo by tbe strong wind which prevailed last Friday. The building was used as a oarpocter shop and a man who was in it when it fell escaped without Injury. ; . ; , If you have no enemies you can bet your bottom dollar that some of, your friends are deceitful. TBE SUICIDE CLUB. The Vow of Death faithfully by Another Kamber or the Order. Bridgeport, Conn., Oct. 19.-Emil Zeimske, a photographer's assistant, another member of tbe Suicide Club, has carried out the edict of that order by taking oyanide of potash. At 11:40 o'clock Friday night he went to Chris Knoedler's state drug store,' got and drank a glass of whisky, then asked for a glass of water, dropped a lump of oyanide of potash into it, and swallowing the poison, ran ont of the store, and before going a block fell. The ambuianoe was called, but before Riemake reached the hospital he died. He was 47 years old, and had been a member of the Suicide Club for nine mouths. The tragio act that ended his life was ordered by ballot to be consummated "before tbe next meeting," on Saturdaynight, October 18th. Tbe first published acooaut or the Bridgeport Suioide Club appeared two yearaago, after whioh it became famous, and from time to time tbe taking off of its members has been duly chronioled. Early last spring William F.Maby, United States letter-carrier, killed himself: WendleBaum next shot himself, and Joseph Kopp followed by hanging himself. All were members of the Suioide Club. These lsat three rolled up the suicides to nearly a score, and before Ziemski joined, reduoed the membership to President and Secretary, who are exempt ftom self-destruction. At a meeting last night the Suicide Club commemorated Ziemeske' taking off with a fitting memorial to be placed in the secret arohives of the order.. Then a ballot was taken appointing the'next brother who must destroy himself within the year. This time, as heretofore, the result of the ballot was kept a profound secret.

Pan. nsngnrs Injured. But Hot anrlonsly. Erie, Oot. 19.-A horrible catastrophe was averted on the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern railroad to-day near Silver Creek, through the bravery of a cool-headed engineer.

Engineer John Burns, of Buffalo, of the passenger train, was coming down the hill at the rate of fifty miles an hour. He saw the truck ahead and then a freight oar. He saw that an attempt to stop bis train and jump wonld aaorifioe the lives of his 150 passengers. His fireman bad left him. Springing from his seat behind the boiler Burns pnt on every pound of steam, and opened bis sand box so as to get a firmer bold of the rails; the iron monster gave a snort and sprang forward, threw the truok and cut through the freight oar and other debris. Burns with wonderful; fortitude held the lever, and tbe moment be had oleared the obstruction reversed bis engine and threw off tbe air brake. As tbe train entered the wreck, the sides were torn out of three of the coaches. Tbe screams of the women rose high above the screeching of tbe steam. Although the engine was dismantled, brave Engineer Burns emerged from the debris alive, but covered with soars and bruises. Stoat hearted mm embraced tbe engineer hysterically, realizing that bis heroism bad saved the train. Bat one passenger was seriously injured, and that was Mrs. Mary Kane, of Dennis-ton, Ohio. Her Injuries are internal and several ribs are broken. She was placed in tbe hospital at Erie. James H. Ross, of Cleveland, was badly hurt about the bead.
