Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - September 11, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YE Alt-N- !.. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. TliUPwSDAV. SEl'TEM I.ER 1.1. 1890. LMUUE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPHESS KINSL.OK BKOTHKKS - - - rDBLlSHKUB CURRENT COMMENT. Now for Novenilior and a, Kopuhlicau tilii] wuve. Tub United States has twico as many dor.torfl in proportion to its population as (.Jroat Britain and five times as many as Franco. PimAT>Ki.muA Bulletin: Ex-Souator Emory is so long about ooming in out of the wet with his charges against Dela mater that it is feared he is having trouble in keeping his powder dry. General Hastings is now formally a oaodidat3 for the position of director-gou-eral of the World's Fair, His management of affairs at Johnstown last summer showed that he would make a good ono. The negroes of Canada, thirty thou sand in number, are clamoring for re pre Hantatiou in the Dominion Parliament. In protesting against taxation without repre aoutation, they are following a woll-known American precedent. Tuey are beginniug to sum up the results of this year's base ball campaign. Keturns so far received indicate that tbo managers are not so rich as they were at the beginning of the season, but they know a groat deal more. The census count knocks boom figures silly. Wichita, Ivan., has been claiming 42,000 inhabitants Ths census count, just completed, gives the city 22,735. Hutchinson has boon posing at Wichita's rival for gi-catuess, and the census gives her S,67S. THE TARIFF BILL PASSED. It is said that 10,000 Irishmen settle in England every year. If they go into the city of London it .will not belong before the Lord Mayor of London, the Board of Aldermen and every policeman is an Irishman and the question of Green Erin will be settled forever. The reports of the potato blight in Ireland oontinue to be of the most alarming character, and the English government and people are devising means to save tho IriBh from starvation during the ooming winter. The immediate cause of the calamity, this year, is the weather. Joseph Pulitzer, the proprietor of the New York World, will never bave the pleasure of feasting his eyes on the magnificent structure which he has just completed in New York city, as be has gono oompletely blind, notwithstanding the unremitting attention of the best specialists in the world. A .strike of carpenters at Chicago lias been concluded by an arrangement under which the men will be paid thirty-seven and a half cents an hour. This disposes at one and the same time of the question of wages and houiB, and seems to show good sonse on the part of the strikers. A good many employers bave all summer been paying the men thirty-seven and a half cents an hour, bo that the arrangement is a fair one for both Bides. We to-day publish an open letter from H. T. Harvey, Esq., giving his view of the recent Republican nomination for CongreBB in thiB county. Neither Mr. Harvey nor Mr. Hopkins announced themselves regularly as candidates for Congress, as we believe should have been done. Of course each bad the same right to aspire to the office, and had both publicly announced themselves several weeks before the convention as candidates a misunderstanding would have been avoided. As we understand the matter the friends of Mr. Hopkins on the day of the primaries urged him to allow the use of his name for the position, and when he consented they at once went to work to win. As there was no regularly announced candi date for Congress in the field they soon secured enough delegates to nominate their favorite, and now that Mr. Hopkins is tho choice of the convention all Kepub-! licans Bhould rally to his support, that / Friends: Two years ago 1 was honored by the Republicans of Clinton county with their endorsement for the nomination for Congress iu thlK district. It came to me unsolicited iind without any previous Intimation that I was to be thus honored. In accepting it I said that, as by the custom of the party; Mr. Mccormick was entitled to tbo nomination for another term. I would respect the custom and aid In his nomination, which I dU. Since that time my name has been mentioned frequently in connection with tho nomination te made this year, not only in the local newspapers, but in the Philadelphia J*rcsx and other newspapers In and outside of this district. So other name, so far as 1 know was mentioned, except Gen. Merrill'** and ho promptly published a card declining to allow his name to he used, saying he favored my nomination. If I had had any reason U) suppose that Mr. Hopkins was a possible candidate, which I had not, his declarations made to me less-whun a month n^o when wo were riding together Iu the cars between lieilefonte mid Lock Haven, that lie "did not Intend to take any part iu politics this year," that there was uothiug in politics for him and that he would not under any circumstances accept a political otlice," would have relieved me of any doubt on Uie subject. With full confidence that I would receive the endorsement of Clinton County, without opposition, my friends sharing that confidence with me, nothing whatever was done to prevent delegates from being instructed for another candidate, or to secure InstrurtlGus for myself. On the evening oS Saturday, the 8th Inst., the day of the delegate election, about ii o'clock, when I was ou the way home from my oilice, Mr. J. li. Les her asked moil Mr. Hopkins was a candidate, ior Congress, that Dr. Murriefc had made a remark which led him to make tho inquiry. I said that I had not heard that ho was, ;iud as 1 felt sure thai he was not, 1 gave it no further thought. Ou Sunday morning I received a letter from a friend In Renovo, stating "that Just before ttic polls closed I discovered some people wore secretly voting Instructions for Hopkins; all our votes were in with uu Instructions. It was then too late, the work was doue." I had no Idea then that Mr. Hopkins was giving countenance to the movement, or that bo would in any way allow his name to be connected wilh it, when it came to his knowledge. I was confirmed in this belief when Gen Morrill told me that Mr. Hopkins had said to 1'ost-master Barker that he was not a candidate and that it f-hould go no further. I found however on Monday morning that other districts had boon carried by the secret ballot system used in Keuovo, and that he had attempted it in others and failed. I also learned that hi* friends had boon in tho country on Sunda>-soliciting tho support of uulu-strueUid delegates, and tnat oHiers had boon i tut out early on Monday for the same purpose. I also learned thai lit.- had consulted mends mouths ago as to the propriety of his being a candidate for Congress. I then knew that ho was a party to the socret and underhanded movumfcnt which by thedepoHitof a few Instructed ballots in the boxes which could he reached, was to bo taken as the declaration of the Republicaus of the county in bin favor. Whether Mi. Hopkins could have carried, In a contest, one or more districts In tho county, outside of the First and Second wards of Luck Haven, which I admit ho could have carried, it i� tin necessary for the purpose of this letter, to admit or deny, butli ifc Important, In view of tho friendly relations which have existed between ub for mauy years, during a portion of which time the confidential relations ul attorney and client existed, I hat 1 should say that I had no knowledge of his candidacy and no opportunity eilh-or to get out or bis way or to measure strength with him asacxmlM.We b'j.'oru tho people. Whether Mr. Hopkins has sun-ceded in soci.ilnv by tint methods above indicated a �un'nrlty nnl. know, r did not try to uncertain, but at once resolved nol to allow my riMiic io go bfifore ih. Tbo funeral took place on Tuesday. Hurled To-Day. Tbo remains of Jacob Tigh, tho man whoso neck was broken at the nail mill on Tuesday, were interred this foronoon in the Catholic comotorj. Thodecoasod was a mombor of tho Catholic church. and a second edition will soon be published. Her reputation has gono up like a shot, and she has, it is stated, dedided to leave newspaper work, and has contracted with N. L. Munroo to write serial stories of weekly installments for his story paper. She is tii got $10,000 Tor the Ihbt year and $10,000 a year for the next two years to come, and sbe has at tho same time tho right to do some outside work. This is hig pay for a girl of the ago of Nellie Bly, and she will bo tho highest salaried young woman in tho United States. THE SOUTHAMPTON STRIKERS. Thsy Still Maintain a Menacing Attitude- More *Ero�pi on Doty. London, Sept. 10.-Tbe striking dock laborers, sailors and firemen atSoutbamp-ton still maintain a menacing attitude and the authorities fear that there may be further riots notwithstanding the faot that a large force of police from London and other places are at Southampton for the pnrpose of aiding the looal authorities in preserving order. Further detachments of troops have been summoned to assist in putting down an overt demonstration that the mob of strikers may attempt. Some of the strikers have gone out in small boats to await the arrival of in coming steamers with the object of persuading their crews to join them in the strike. The admiralty have been asked to assist in preventing this move of the strikers. Eight men were arrested for taking part iu the rioting yesterday. To-day's mob gathered around tho Mayor's residence and made threatening demonstrations. The Mayor telephoned for assitance and a number of soldiers were despatched in cabs to disperse tbe crowds. Several bodies of troops arrived bore this afternoon and evening. The employers held a meeting and subsequently issued baud bills, promising every protection to the men returning to work. Tbo union submitted a proposal for au advance iu wages undeitikiug not to ask a further increase for two years to oome. Tho employers, however, declined to accede to the condition that no nonunion men Bhould be employed. Seventeen more arrests of strikers havo been made. The soldiers threatened to fire on the mob several times before they succeeded in dispersing tbe rioters. Posters issued by tho mayor urging the men to remain in their houses were angrily seized by tho mob and destroyed. Business in the place has become paralyzed. HEAVY RAINFALL AT ELMIRA The Entertainment Last Night. Ttio closing entertainment of the Cantata of ljueen Esther, given in the Opera House last night, was fairly well attended considering the disagreeable condition of tho weather. The performance was a repetition of tbat given tho previous evening, and at tho close of the last act of the Cantata the military drill by thirteen young ladies was repoatod by request. Prof, Goodrich, tbo instructor aud director who has shown so much ability in bringiug the performers to the proficiency attained, left to-day for Millville, Columbia couuty, where the Cantata is to bo produced under his direction, ne was so muoh pleased with his visit to Lock Haven that he coutemplatoB returning at some future timo for the pnrpose of holding a musical convention.
