Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - October 30, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YEAE-NO. 207 LOCK HAVEN, PA. THURSDAY. OCTOBER 30, 1890. PKICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KIN8LOE BKOTlIKltS---PUBLISHERS A WORKING CANDIDATE. A. C. Hopkins, tbe Republican candidate foi Congress in this district, never held an office bnt bas been r worker mil his lire and bse contributed liberally for tbe success of tbe cause for years. Ho did not seek tbe nomination in tbe drat place, but wben Clinton oounty Republicans, in convention assembled, endorsed him unanimously for Congress be went into tbo fight with a determination to -win, if possible. He won tbe race for the district nomination and is now conducting a vigorous campaign that cannot fail to be successful. He presented Clinton's claims before the conference In snoh an able and couvinoing mariner that finally brought success against great odds, and since Clinton's favorite is tbe candidate tbe people, irrespective of party, Bbonld give Hopkins snob a hearty support that he may carry the ooonty by a large majority. Little Clinton now bas an opportunity to send a representative of her own to Washington and as this honor is not often presented the people should avail themselves of it in a manner that will show their full appreciation. Let us send Hopkins to tbe other counties with a full thousand majority as a tribute of our respect for him and as a man and neighbor. The Williamsport Republican has tbe following to say of our candidate: A. C. Hopkins is a man of magnificent ability. Born fifty-three years ago the best years of an aotive and prosperous life have been spent within the district whloh he will shortly represent in Cod-grees as tbe spokesman of 175,000 of "tbe most prosperous and intelligent people of this great Commonwealth." He knows their wants; he is in sympathy with tbe political faith of the vast majority of tbsm and be is in every way oompetent to care for the best interests of all of them. For years within his own county and in tbe State, he bas been vigorously fighting the battles of the Republican paity, and every battle haB found him giving generously of his time, bis energy and his means, to advanoe the interests of tbe Republican party. But while he has always been an active participant in tbe battles of ais party, be haB always fought in an open field in an honest way, and while his party friends have loved him for the good he has done, his opponents have always admired him for tbe open banded way be has waged war against them in the political arena. He ib a man in every w&y worthy the sup. port of tbe voters of the Sixteenth Congressional district. At his home, Lock Haven, and in his own county, Clinton, which are ordinarily strongly Democratic, the voters without regard to party, will give him an enthusiastic support, and be will come to Lycoming, Tioga and Potter, with one thousand majority as the tribute of bis neighbors and friends in Clinton. It makes little or no difference who tbe Dem-ocratie nominee is. One more popular than another may keep tbe figure down a trifle, bnt one of the results of next Tuesday's election is sure to be the election of A. C. Hopkins, to Congress, by a handsome majority.

Editor Grier is a bustler, however, and he got there in good shape, notwithstanding be had to work Mb entire edition on a hand press bimself. Lycoming county Republicans are nnitedand will wage a strong fight against the Democracy on next Tuesday. All the Republican newspapers are doing yeoman service for the cause and their work must surely have a tolling effect for tbe whole ticket Their support of our Congressional candidate is so vigorous and enthusiastic that wa look for a good report for Hopkins from LycomiDg. If tbe County Commissioners are as innocent aa they claim in regard to the bridge transactions why were they so anxious to build the South Renovo bridge in opposition to tbe advice of their Attorney, T. C. Hippie, Esq., and against the strong remonstrances presented by Gen. Merrill and H. T. Harvey, Esq? When Mr. Hippie found that they were determined to sign the contract with E. T. Gallagher for the Renovo bridge ho at onoe resigned. There is much to explain iu these bridge transactions and tbe public wants light on tbe subject. Elect the, Republican candidates, thatja complete investigation may be made. Tbe Strange Folioe Enters tbe House of Robert Paul, Is Fondled by tba Chit dren, Three at Whom Contract the Dreaded Malady and Dle-The Father and Mother Die. Dodoeville, Wis., Oct. 20.-The family of Robert Paul at Middleton has been afEioted by diphtheria, which was brought into the house in a singular manner. About four weeks ago a stray cat came to their home and one. ot tbe ohildren handled and played witb it' Although it was noticed at the time that it discharged at the nose and moutb, nothing was thought of it until soon after when the little boy was taken down with black diphtheria, one of the most malignant kind, that the dootor said he had caught from the oat. The boy died; then a Becond took the disease and died. The father, mother, and daughter were also stricken down and recovered. Allen, the only remaining son and support of his parents, cared for them all through their terrible sickness, holding one of tho boys when dying and preparing them for their last resting place witb his own bands. Wben the others were recovering he was taken down and died. Working for Judge McCren. Tbe Renovo Sews, of yesterday, says: "Before the Democratic primary eleotion tbe people of Clinton county had the names of six reputable citizens of that party submitted to them as applicants far office who were residents of the county West of Lock Haven. By some mysterious working of party machinery all wore rejected. In tbe Republican convention the name of bnt one up-river man was presented, and be was unanimously nominated. Now it seems to ns that tbe only way to show the people of Clinton oounty that we have confidence in the man whose sbtno we promut, io va vote vonaty ror Enp only candidate we have from our seotion of the oounty. Therefore, let as all vote and work for Geo. R. MoCroa, who will be an honor to the people of Clinton county." A Novel �nd Humorous Performance. Lillian Kennedy arid Alfred Keloy last night were seen to good advantage in "Casey's Troubles." Unlike many shows carrying so many novel features, the manager bas paid particular attention to play and actors. Miss Kennedy is a beautiful little article of most delicious combination, singing, dancing and acting, and Mr. Kelcy keeps the audience in one continual roar of laughter with his refined bumor. Tbe river scene was unusually realistic, and the donkey and dogs were a joy forever.-Sew Tork Herald. FOSTMASTER FIEDLER SUSTAINED. Oat la tbe Wet. The city's machinery for road making bas been standing at the junction of East Park and Liberty streets, for several weeks, exposed to all kinds of weather. As the machine cost considerable money the suggestion bas been made that it will be much better preserved if kept under oover when not in use. The Democratic County Committee passed a resolution yesterday declaring "that in acoepting the withdrawal of Harvey B. Kleckner, as a candidate for County Commissioner, we do so with great reluotance," etc. If this be true why was tbe whole power of the Democratic machine, including the Lock Haven ring, exerted to force Mr. Kleckner to resign? Why did leading Democrats "corner" him in a prominent attorney's office and there use all their power of perBua-eion and abuse to compel bis withdrawal? To read these resolutions one would suppose that Mr. Kleckner was just dying to lesign and took the first opportunity to do so, when the truth of tbe matter is ho flatly refused to get off tbe ticket and it took all the power of the Democratic ma-ohine to bounce bim. The New Tork "WoTldV Attack on Mr. . ii:*~wu, ti,o well known surveyor, furnished tho Democrat yesterday witb tbe following card for publication: Lock Haten, Pa., Oct 28,1890. Editor Democrat: Seeing that my name baa been used in connection witb tbe Gallagher bridge measurements, I desire to say first, that I never made any measurements of tbe abutment or pier or never even saw the bridge in question until 1 drove over it a few weeks ago. But I did go over the measurements made by Engineer Ronlan for the purpose of verifying their correctness, as be was very anxious that they should be right and no mistake made, and came to me with the request that I would examine them. Taking his measurements, just as he made them, I found his figures entirely correct. This is the sum and substance of my connection with tbo matter, and if you will please give this card an insertiou in the Democrat you will greatly oblige Tours truly, William P. Mitchell. Mr. Mitchell said this morning that be bad no connection with the matter further than to look over the calculations Mr. Ronion had made, to see whether tbey were oorrect. Mr. Ronian, ho stated, asked him to do that in order to verify his own calculations. Mr. Mitchell requested that this statement be made for him to-day in conneotion with the publication of his card. _ _ A River Gauge. Prof. John.A. Robb, volunteer weather observer in tbis oity baa been advised that the signal service department will forward to him a river gauge, provided he will make dally observations of the stage of water In the river.

STRONfi CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE. A. C. Hopkins a Man Around Whom All Can Dally With Enthusiasm. Williamsport Gazette and Bulletin, 30th Inst. The Republicans of the Sixteenth District have strong reasons to congratulate themselves on tbe result of the conference which concluded its labors at an early hour yesterday morning, by making A. C, Hopkins, of Clinton oounty, tbe nominee for CoDgress. In that gentleman the people have a oandidate around whom all can rally, and on whom every county in the district can unite. A. C. Hopkins comes direet from the ranks of tbe people, is a man thoroughly conversant witb the needs of the district, and in whom bis constituents can place complete reliance on having a safe and able representative. As a Congressman be will represent no section or faction, but will be found ever ready and willing to respond to tbe wishes of the whole people. His assurance to that effect bas been given, and his honorable competitors have pledged their hearty and em-pbatio endorsement and will.be found bat-tllng in bis cause. Of Mr. Hopkins' election there ean be no semblance of doubt At tbis particular time, perhaps more so than at any other period in the history of tbe party, tbe followers of tbe party are brought to a full realization of the fact that those principles are at stake; that on tbe result of the eon test now being waged depends tbe safety of tbe Protective policy, so essential to the continued welfare of the nation and particularily to the prosperity of Pennsylvania. As a staunch Protectionist A. C. Hopkins can be relied on to defend tbat policy by his influence and by his vote. For that reason, if tor no other, this Republican district oan afford to take no chances, and it is unreasonable to assume tbat any part of the district will misunderstand the issue involved. The election of a Republican Congressman at this time is a matter of national significance. Iu every state of the union the energies of tbe Democratic party are being exerted to seonre control of the next House, and with the narrow margin on whioh the Republicans are depending tbe loss of a single Congressman might be dangerous. Ordinarily tbis Sixteenth Pennsylvania distriot is strongly Republican, and there is no reason wby it should not oontlnue perfectly safe. As a matter of course the Democratic party will make every effort to create dis-oord. Tbe vials of venom will be opened. The mandate has gone forth to evade the issue in this district as it bas been evaded in other distriots. The Republican candidate will be made the snbjeot of attack, not personally for personally he la beyond reproach. The same base insinuations that have been made oonoerning other candidates in the State have been made here, and in tbe brief spaoe of time intervening until election every vile measure known to Demooratio ingenuity will be resorted to in order to gain a point. But those schemes will fall flat, for tbe Republicans of the district have been forewarned and are on guard. From the southern boundaries of Clinton and Lycoming.to the northern lines of Tioga and Potter the interests of tbe people are identical, and within those boundaries not a Republican should be found wavering. Demooratio success would be disastrous to all, were suoh a contingency at all likely, or possible. It is neoeasary, bowever, that these matters be referred to so tbat every voter may have a thorough realization of tham. The district must not be jeopardized by any misunderstanding of tbe facts. The Democrats have plaoed in nomination Hon. Mortimer F. Elliott, of Tioga oounty, a gentleman of vaunted popularity in his Beotion of the State, and tbe Republicans of Tioga oounty will he especially appealed to in bis behalf. But tbe Republicans of Tioga county must bear in mind tbat Mr. Elliott is a Democrat of Democrats, and as suoh is the enemy of Repnb. lican principles, one who is opposed to Proteotion, who is the foe of the MoKinley bill and who would vote for Ha repeal. Personal regard for principles, not men, must prevail in this oontest. A vote for Elliott means more than a vote against Hopkins-it means danger. The Repnb licans of Tioga county oan be relied on, however, to be found in the right now, as of yore. Tbe Repulican majority of that county will not be reduced at tbis time by any delusive snare. Only a fow days intervene until eleotion, and in tbat time there remains much work to bo accomplished. Tbe Republicans of Tioga, Potter, Clinton and Lyooming must go in to win, and no time should be wasted. Bend every energy to swell tbe vote and inorease the majority for Mr. Hopkins, and tbe distriot will have a Congressman who will serve for the good of his peoplo, the distriot, the State and tbe nation.
