Lock Haven Express (Newspaper) - June 23, 1890, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania NINTH YE ATI-NO. LOCK HAVEN, PA.. MONDAY. JUNE 23, 1890. PKICE-TWO CENTS EVENING EXPRESS KINSI.Oli UKOT1IKK8---PUBLISHKKS current comment. TnEiiE is too much Bilvet liuiog ju tin clouds at Washington. ' i ' : Quf.es Victoria has rulid England for fifty three years and she will probably live to do co for Beveral years yet. It lias taken the friends of Horace Greeley eight years to raiso $11,000 for bis statue. It took oue.hundred years to build the Washington'*.monument. There h hope for God. Grant yet. Only one book out of 40,000 in the pub lie library of Boston failB to be returned. From which it might be inferred that it is not the reading portiou'of tho'Hub whioh pays 410,000 for the vote of a Massachu setts legislator. A. vessel loaded with ice arrived at New York a few days ago from Norway at a cost of $5 * ton. Sweden is Que of the countries in wnioh the ice crop never fails, and it is possible to ship it hituor as cheaply as from Maine. Another purchase of 600,000 acres -of fine farming lands has been made by the government from the Pottawatomie Indians. �noagh was reserved by them to give every one a 1G0 acre farm, more than enough to support' them' if they care to' work to earn a liviutj. The Democratic oampain in Arkansas starts off at a right lively pace. A prominent Republican, who is a merchaur, in Russelville, a small town of that State, has already received a commaud to wind up his affairs and leave at once, under penalty of disastrous consequences to himself. . 11  � ' � To what extent club life has attained in the United States may be seen by taking the oity of- New York as an example. There are in that great modern Babel 208 clubB of various kinds. Most of them aro purely social; others are devoted to politics, religion andUiterature, with more or leSB of the social feature eombined with them. � ~ '' In Belfast, Ireland, the tariff bill is already having its effect on the linen trade. Prices have gone down and few orders are coming in. There is a universal disposition to rush as many linen goods to., this country as possible before the proposed' law becomes operative. The McKiDley bill means more business here at home and less importations from foreign conn-tries. . � "_� The.professed aim of every trust which has so far been formed has been to cheapen the commodity it deals in; but the experience of all oonsumers tends rather in tbo other direction. That combinations and large aggregations of capital really enable men to produoe merchandize more cheaply admits of no doubt, hut at the same time that fact does not prevent these men from obtaining the top-notch price for their wares. Trnsts .can cheapefT goods, but they don't;_ The rivalry between tho twin cities of Minnesota has broken out anew over the oensus. Minneapolis has been making superhuman efforts to increase her population and outstrip (Bt. Paul. The people of SL Panl suspected obioanery, and now claim that 25,000 . fraudulent names have been added to the Minneapolis enumeration. They have caused .the arrest of seven enumerators,- who are charged with these frauds, and assert that they have plenty of evidence to eouviot them. CmntMAN Maloke to-day issues his oall for the Republican County Convention for Tnesday afternoon, September 9th. The delegate elections will be held on Saturday, Sept. 6th. Now that tho time has been fixed for holding the convention the Republican candidates will no doubt become quite numerous and the contest for the various nominations become moro animated. Let the best men seeking tho various positions be nominated and, with a strong ticket in the field the Republicans will have a good chance of winning the fight next November. The fact that a Belgian firm of iron makers has underbid all our homo manufacturers .for the ooatraot to supply the structural iron needed for the new Court House at Minneapolis, has oome upon the Iron men of this country with something of a genuine surprise. Just how this far away firm can underbid our home manufacturers by 25 per oent. in spite of the duty levied at the CuBtom House, is a mystery. Evan tho cheap labor of Belgium fails to explain the low price. Tho absolute necessity for protective duties becomes more and more apparent every day. With this barrier removed, our native industries would soon be brought to a stand still.____ Cat Wheat on Jane 10. Harrlsburg Tellegraph. A small batoh of wheat was cut on the Hummel estate farm across the river in Cumberland county yesterday. This is the earliest wheat that has been out in this vicinity for some yoars in our recollection. DEATH AND DESTRUCTION. A Death Dealing Storm Sweeps a Portion of Illinois.

HASTHTGS DE0LABES HE IS THE HAN He Has Assurance That Warrant Him In Makinar the Prediction-Secretary Stone Also Looming Cp. While Senator Dele-meter ie Not Plscouraged-The Liveliest Covcntlon �ver Held In the State. Haiirisbcro, June 22.-Senator Dela-mater and General Hastings came in on the same train from Philadelphia, this afternoon, aud joined the advance guard of Republicans already on the ground. Secretary Stone, who is looming up prominentias a compromise candidate, was first to get here, but- like General Hastings, bs has quietly remained at'his rooms, preferring to wait nntil Monday before opening regular headquarters, i It will be the most exoiting Republican State Convention ever held in this city, the element of doubt hedging the "nominations making it impossible to predict' the outcome with any degree of certainty. Chairman Andrews is regularly installed in the State Committee's headquarters at the Lochiel, where Senator Dalamater is also to bo found. All tbe leading candidates for the various offices have reserved rooms at this hotel. the bush will begin to day. To-night comparatively few delegates have arrived, but the rush will begin tomorrow, and by Tuesday the oity will be full to overflowing. Delamater's supporters are still sanguine of their favorite's nomination for Governor, bnt they secretly admit that Senator Quay might decide to turn in for either Hastings or Stone. They are depending solely upon Quay. If he fails them their cause is hopeless. hastings confident. General Hastings is more confident1 to-' night than at any time during the heated canvass now drawing to a oloae. He said to-night: "I have never yet said anything about the outlook for publication, bat you may say tbat assurances have reaobed me which justify the prediction that I will be Dominated on Wednesday." Then- was no doubt expressed or implied and the confidence exhibited by. the leaders.'baa strengthened the Hastings followers. Secretary Stone is developing unusual strength as the probable compromise candidate. -hontooth's position. ' ', It is stated to-night upon the most reliable authority tbat Major Montooth will never oonscnt to aocept the seoond place on the tioket with Delameter and that Senator Quay failed utterly in making such a deal as was expected when he left Philadelphia for Pittsburg. The' lines of all the candidates are firm to-night It is not definitely known that Senator Quay will be here, but his room at the Lochiel has been reserved for him. PERSONAL PENCILINGS.
