PRICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KIKSLOE ItUOTHI.KS THF. COUNTY TICKET. Tho Ropublioau County Convention did its work wcl! mid placed a ticket iu tho *U.|d ij:.-.; will command the suppoit the party aud the viitors generally, it was i> uarniniuoiifi contention r.nd is werk should bo ho.irtiij rstiP.rrd by tho Kcpablicaus of Clinton county ut the polls in Novomber. Wo havo an exosllor.: chance of electing our ticket tiud every honorablo effort should be made to bring about this rosult. A. C. Hopkins, of Look Haven, was unanimously nominated fcr Congress, which was a surprise to man? as it was not generally kuown that bs was a candidate. Clinton comply !a fairly entitled to tho district nomination and Mr. Hopkins will no doubt see that her claims are fully sustained and use his best effort3 to seoutB the nomination in tho Congressional Conference. If nominatod he wili make a popular oandidate and will be elected by a good majority. Our oandidate for Assembly, Captain James W. Fredericks of this city, is ono of the strongest names on the ticket and he should poll the full BOldior vote, havinj; served in tho war with honor to himself and Ihe company be commanded. He \7i'l make a flrPt-claeu ropresoutuivfj fc � Clinton und should bo sent to Uarrisbnrg. Ex.Mayor James Jefforig was selected as the candidate for Prothonotary by ac-] clamation. He sorved two terms as Mayo' of Lock Haven and is well and favorably known throughout the county. Ha will command a large vote and there iB every reason to believe that ho will be eleeted. He will make an attentive and efficient I'rothonotary, just such an official as the people need and Mr, Jeffcris is the man for tho ofiioe. There was a olose contest at the primaries for Sheriff bat A. H. Best secured the majority of delegates and he was also nominated by aoolamation, the name of A. J. Malono being withdrawn by request after having been presented to the convention. Mr. Bo.it has been a rosidont of Clinton county for many years and. is ve.-j popular. His boat of friends will wort earnestly to secure his eleotlon. He was also a soldier and deserves the support of bis oomrades. W. F. Loveland, ol Lamar, secured the nomination for Treasurer on tho first ballot. The oholee is an excellent one. Mr. Loveland is, and has been for years, engaged in the mercantile business and has gained for himself an honorable reoord. Mr. Loveland was a soldier too and ho will no doubt receive, as he oertainly deserves, a full share of the soldier sup. port. There was do opposition to the nouii-t-alion of Judge Georgo R. McCrea, of Henovo, for Associate Judge and he was therefore nominated by acclamation. Daring his brief occupancy of tho position as one of the Asaooiate JudgeB he Las proven to be the right man in the right place and the people of Clinton oounty propose to retain him in hi3 present posF tion. Be snro to vote for Mr. McCrea, odd of the strongest and most popular candidates on tho ticket. F. M. Welsh, of Bald Eagle, and A. C. Kisocll, of Woodward, oarried off the nomination for Commissioners and both will poll a big vote. They arc old residents of the county and well acquainted with its needs. Both are well .|Ua!iSod for tho position of County Commissioner and both should be elected. The ticket was completed by the nomi nation of John MoGheo, of Beech Creek and P. M. Leitzel,of Allison, for Auditors" The tail will oommand the same bcarty support as the head of tho tioket, as both candidates are well fitted for the office.

Tho disposition towards the importer and merchant is worse in the House than in the Senate, bo that it is certain that they will extend the time for the bill's going into effeoc, and it may be that they will not agree to the extrusion until November 1 for goods in bond last month. A provision extending the bonded period to three years' goods to pay the rate of duty charged at time of withdrawal, was adopted by the Senate thJ6 morning. The Tariff bill will probably reach tho President for his signatur6 within two weoks. the dsrelict repisssentative".

A Finn Entrrtalnment-Shot by (Jig Rrother - His Friwi'iNot Hoard From-Deathof no A Red Colored Man-Th* Ilee Hive Sloro Iniprnyrmenta-A Pleanant Evening Parly. The presentation of the popular Cantata of Esthor, tho boautilul Queen, at tho Opora House last night, was a grand ouo-cess, although tho audience was not as largo, as it should have boon, probably owing to the inolomenoy of tbo weather. Those who witnessed tho dramatic representation of theCsnt&ta last night wore well repaid for braving tho elements and a walk through tho rain to the Opera House. The entertainment commenced with a graud military drill by thirteen young ladieB, whoso movements were made with exact preoisloo, and showed the thoroughness of ths drill which had enabled them to attain suoh perfection in so short a time. Tho Cantata was produoed with oriental htiige scenery and all tho ladles and gentlemen who h&d leading parts wore full and olegant costumes of ancient oriental times. A score or more of handsome! nung U. dies who formed the chorus wer) dressed in white and presented a charming appearanoe. There was but one sentiment among the audience, and that was that all who participated in the production of the Cantata, aoquitted themselves nobly and rendered their patt of the entertainment splendidly. As Queen Esther, Miss Nellie Reeser performed her part to perfection. Her easy, graooful manner on tho stage and her fine rendering of both words and music won for her the admira-tion and oommendation of the most critical. Prof. Goodrich expressed himself as well pleased with the first night's performance. At the second entertainment this evening there will no doubt be a full house to greet the pGrformcra. Want of space forbids .making personal mention of all who took part in the Cantata. The board f jr the Bale of reserved seats for this ovening is open at Seltzer & Ryhmoetine'a book store. Prices 15, 25 and 35 cents. Shot by His Brother. David Fulton, of Renovo, was accidentally shot in the breast while gunning on tho mountain noar that place yesterday afternoon. The Renovo Xcirs says he and his brother Harry took a target gun and a revolver to tho mountaics for the purpose of having a little sport. David was standing with tho gun raised In his right hand, ready to firo when his brother drew up his revolver. Tho trigger on the revolver was pulled aoeidentally and tho bullet struok David's right wrist, going clear through at the upper part and lodging itsolf in his breast. The revolver was thirty-two calibre. Tho injured man was within a foul of his brother when the bullet waa discharged. They inimediatoly came from tho mountains and went to tho ofiioe of Dr. Weymouth who stopped thn :lo^ blond from 'lie wrist und removed tho buu from the breast, where it had penetrated but a slight distanco. tt was very fortunate that tho bullet had spent its force iu the wrist or tho wound would undoubtedly have been a sorious one.

Owing to the P�r.l.t�ncy or the Train Wreckers the Traveling l'abllc Are Shanulns the ICoad-Several MeetlngA of Director! Helrt-Ther Got Caught In the Rain. Nbw Youk, Bept. 9 -The persinteuoe with which the train wreokers keep up tbeir dastardly work aloug the line ol tbe New York Central road has thoroughly angered and alarmed the bead officials of the company. There have been several meetings of direotors who are at their wit" ecd for a plan that will effectually prevent similar attempts in the future. The effeots of these nnmerouB attempts are already manifest in deoreased passenger traffic upon the road, and a further ooatinuanoe may bring that portion of the road's trafSo praotioally to a stand still. what the district a68emdlt will do. Albany, Sept. 9 - District Master Workman Lee when asked what there waa to report said that thn Executive Board of Distriot Assembly 240 were going to got writs of habeas corpun in order to ascertain why and where the men who had been arrested on suspicion of being train wreckers, are held in custody, said. "The only foundation for this report is tbe discussion had between several leading Knights individually whether we should not get writs of Mbeaa coiyus to oompel the polioe authorities to produce the men, as we thought it was a simple oase of kidnapping men. We don't think Cordial or Kiernan were engaged in train wrecking, and acting under this impression we will obtain counsel and do all in our power to aid them. If it is proven they took part in the work vie will leavo them to their fate, as we do not desire such men in our ranks." Cordial, one of the three men acoused of partioipating in the train wrecking Friday night, who was brought to Troy jail today, said to a reporter: "I don't propose to have them saddle this thing on me." lie also Baid: "They have the right party." It iB believed from tbe statements of the prisoner and offiaers that Cordial has confessed all he knows abont the wrecking. PLOT TC MURDER. Ho Wasn't Saybig a 'Word.
