NINTH YEA1I-UO. 177 LOCK HAVEN, PA., THUKSDAY. SEPTEMBER 25, 1800. P11ICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS CURRENT COMMENT. Ah Biamark's annual income is $175,000, no wise man cau understand why bo cannot bo contented. Banking firms roport a soaroity of 61 bills. With tho average citizeo, however, there is a much greater scarcity ;>f $100 bills. At last fashion has some method in its madness, and utility has a show. Sparrows are to be one of the adornments of winter hats. Now, truly, the sparrow will go, and for once Fashion will receive a National blsssing. British iron and steel experts acknowledge that the United States now holds the place of Great Britiaa as the first iron and ste'el producing nation in the world. The triumphs of protection in this respect have been so magnificent that they cau no longer bo denied, even by the foreign free traders whe are protection's hitter opponents. _ To enable you t j vote on Tuesday, November 4, 1690, it is required that you shall have paid within two years of that date a State or county tax, which shall have been assessed at least two mouths and paid at least one month before the election. If you have not paid such tax Bince November 4, 188S, then you should do so before October 4, 1890. Clifton R. Breckinridge baa begun his campaign for ."vindication" in the Second District of Arkansas. He has taken the stump iu his own behalf, and proposes to make a vigorous oanvass against Isham P. Langly, the Union Labor candidate for Congress in the district. Roger Q. Mills and other noted Democratic speakers have been detailed to help him. The latest story concerning Jessie Fremont is the worst yet. It will sadden the hearts of the American people to hear that this noble woman is absolutely in destitution and also ill. It is to bo hoped this pathetic appeal to tho sympathies of the nation will Btrike a responsive chord in Congress without another day's delay. A pension for the widow of the Pathfinder of the Rockies certainly could be passed in both houses within a few hours, and this ought to be done. The Executive Committee of the Grant Monument Association in New York, appear to be well satisfied with the design that has been accepted. The next thing is to raise the money for the structure. It will oost over $500,000, and the sum of the contributions now in baud is about $140,000. At least $260,030 will have to be raised, and a beginning is to be made by a fair in Madison Square Garden. Then the hat will have to be passed around everywhere, and contribution boxes will be placed iu hundreds of public places. In this beggarly fashion the great Empire City proposes to get the cash for its monument to a grand patriot who has been dead over five years. Considering tho promises mads by New York and the enormous wealth of hundreds of its citizens, the required sum ought to bo ob_ tained iu a single day. Democratlv Senatorial Conference* The Democratic Conferees who met at Tyrone yesterday organized by electing W. H. Brown, PreRident of tho Conference. Thirty ballots were taken before adjournment. Tho Conferanco adjourned to meet this forenoon at & o'clock. The candidates to be balloted for are T. C. Ripple, Esq , of Clinton, P. Gray Meek, of Centre and Mitt Savage, of Clearfield. Each of thecandidatas received three votes on each ballot. Clearfield having had the Senatorial to#s for tbe past two terms it lookB to a fellow up a tree as if Matt Savage was only in the field to gain a little political prestige, for it is not likely that be will stick for a nomination. "Who bo may throw bis delegates to is another matter. A telegram from Tyrone at noou to-day stated that there waB no change in the situation up to the hour of adjournmeLt of the conference at noon. bandog CUwes. An excellent opportunity to learn to dance will be offered our citizens by Miss Marie Bishop at Soott's Bazar, October lid and 4th. Miss Bishop will also have a conversation class In French and as she comes to Look Haven with the beBt of references it is hoped that she will meet with the success she deservos. Miss Bishop is probably better known to most of our people as one of iho Phi! tdOphia Jfass priza winners. A Xcw Sm*v MJJJ Comj>l�iU*l. Mr, S. M.

Harrisburg, Sept. 24.-The Prohibition State Convention met bore this afternoon and nominated John D. Gill, oi Westmoreland, for Governor, to take the place of Charles Miller, of Venango, who declined. Thirty-one mo rubers of the committee were present. A committee consisting of A. Q. C. Ricketts, A. A. Stevens, John D. Gill, W. W. Hague and H. T. Ames were appointed to prepare rules for governing the party. The committee will report at the next State convention. Tho National Committee plan for securing finances by the annual payment plan was adopted, as was also the suggestion that an organizer be placed in each county to securo money and canvass for votes. Chairman Patten reported the campaign as progressing very favorably. Mr. Gill, who was present and accepted the nomination for Governor, is a resident of Grcensburg, and a prominent member of the Westmoreland bar. He has been a prohibitionist since 1884. when he cast his vote for St. John for President. Philadelphia, Sept. 24.-Iu pursuance of a call issued by Theodore P. Ityn-dor, Chairman of the Executive Com-mitte, the Union Labor party met here today and placed the following ticket in nomination: Governor, Theodore P. Rynder, Centre county; Lieutenant Governor, Juetus Wat kins, Tioga county; Secretary of Internal Affairs, Henry K. Feller, Blair county. A new Exe cutive Committee was named and a platform was adopted setting forth tho principles of the Union Labor party. Among other things they demand that the Government issue money direct to the people to an amount not less than sixty dollars per capita; the free coinage of silver and issuance of fractional paper currency; free school books; Australian ballot system; absolute repeal of the conspiracy laws; denounces the Pinkeitons; demands agraduato income tax; that the President; Vice President, United States Senators and postmasters bo elected by the peoples suffrage irrespective of sex; passage of the Pennsylvania Service Pension bill and the immediate culling of a Constitutional Convention. The meeting was not altogether harmonious, as it was found necessary to look the doors against eight gentlemen who claimed to be entitled to admission as members of the Executive Committee. These men, who claimed to be a majority of the members of the committee, afterwards passed resolutions denouncing the arbitrary action of Rynder and his associates. The resolutions also say that the issue this Fall is clearly defined between the two great parties, and that it would be unwise to place a Union Labor ticket in tho field, and therefore tho fight of tho Independent Republicans agaiuU boasism is endorsed. A Blood Sweating Hippopotamus. Among the many specially interesting and rare specimens oT zoology to be seen with Ringling Bros. Colossal Rail Road Shows is tho largest living hippopotamus in captivity. His weight is greater than the higheEt elephant. This mammoth amusement institution will spread its 'city of snow white tents" in Lock Haven, on Oct. 1st. They Are Dandlee. The Emporium Presa of yesterday thus refers to Vreel&nd's minstrels that appear at the Opera House to-morrow night: "Vreelaud's Operatic Minstrels gave an entertainment to a large audience at this place last Wednesday eveniug. Tho entertainment was the best ever given iu Emporium and the audienoe was highly delighted. They are dandies, Tho mimic was exceptionally fine. Come again." The Fever at Farraurisvllle.

Mrs. -.*it that Each Winds- Up With lr�rlo<]h of Calamities. �' Krom the New Yorfc Times. History teaches that the cloning years of each o' tho by-gono conturieg havo been rendered memorable by a more than usual amount of sorrows, troubles and ills to which mankiud is heir. Alarmed lest the century should pass away without the human race receiving it* full quota of suffering, the powers of nature appear to have crowded iuto its concluding years all tho unspent hoard of pestilence, famine, war and catastrophe's of every kind. Nor does the dual decade of the nineteenth.century seem dostiucd to prove any exception to the rule. It has opened in a mariner that cannot be regarded as other than ominous. Cholera has once deserted the oriental headquarters and invaded .Europe from several poluiB. bearing death and desolation in its train. Famine is again casting its blighting shadow over tho sorely stricken inhabitants of the Emerald Isle. In Italy the misery is so appal ing that starvation is depopulating entire districts, and from every quarter of the globe domes tales of ruined crops, destroyed herds and devastated homes. While no one country or district can be said to hare escaped, it would appear as if the forces of nature had concentrated their principal efforts for evil upon the central portion of Europe. Germany, Switzerland,'a part of France, and in partionlar Austria, are at present the particular suffers. The phylloxera has for the first time on record secured a foothold in tbe vineyards of the Champagne and of the Rhine, and threatens completely to destroy these productive industries; and while in one portion of Austria the droagh t is so intense that tbe cattle and horses are dying by the thousand-forVantof fodder, tho remainder of the empire, aa well as Sofltbeora Germany and Switzerland, Is suffering from terrible inundations^ So appalling have the latter become tbat'a special department of the government has been organized in all baste at Vienna for the purpose of dealing with the danger. The principal rivarsbavebnrst their banks, in a number .of places Sodding 'the surrounding districts, arresting railroad communication and mining' the crops. The Lake of ConttArice has risen to the highest level known for more than one; hundred years, and many of tbe other inland seas have followed suit, rendering a suspension of navigation imperative. And what in the eyes of the superstitious is'vorae than all, tbe Carlsbruecke at Prague, which for five hundred years has withstood the onslaughts of the Moldau, has just crumbled away into the river, carrying with it the famous and venerated statue of St. John ofNopomuk, the patron Baint of the ancient city of Prague and of the Bohemian nation. Without attaching undue importance to the loars and terrors of the Bohemians, who regard as the worst of omens the disappearance of the statue of St. John -a statue which was visited every year by thousands of pious pilgrims-it must be admitted that many Europeans have every reason to view the approach of the coming winter with fear and apprehension. Deaths Dolnga. Miss Mary Murdoak, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Donald Murdock, died last night at 0 o'clock at the residence of her parents, No. 131 Washington street. Her age was 15 years and the cause of death inflammation of the bowels. The funeral services will bo conducted in the' Great Island Presbyterian Church, at 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon. The deceased was an attentive' scholar of the Presbyterian Sunday school, being a member of Airs. S. Z. Martin's otass, and also a member of the Young People's Missionary Society of the same church. "Mamie" was a most estimable, young girl, and in her short life taught lessons which older persons wonld do well to learn. Her departure will be sincerely regretted by her many young friends, and we cannot measure the depth of sorrow her death haB caused in the home circle. Married To-ilay. Charles H. Pott, postmaster at Jersey Shore, and Miss Marten Meekley, daughter of the lato Dr. Mookley, were married at Jersey Shore this forenoon. The ceremony was perlormed in the Presbyterian church at 10 o'clock and the wedding was a brilliant affair. Bill posters, are covering the newly* erected bill boards with flaming, posters announcing the coming of Main & Van Amburg's mammoth shows, on Oct. 7sh. Nothing slow about Look Hnveu with two circuHcs on the tapis less than a week apart. The poor lads driven crazy by cigarettes do not have very far to go. They uever will bo missed. We believe the Minstrels will be good to-morrow night. Look out for the parade of the Minstrel band to morrow. The Minstrels to-morrow night.
