The new county bill, which hat been n bone

Mr. Scott was born in Iiradford County and

IlARimnuRO, April 11th, 1670,
A Jovial Keprrsontativo and n man of In
finite, jest is the Hon. D. P. Iloscnmlllor, of
Lancaster, and tint for an instant did it rest
within his breast last week when ho offered
a hastily written resolution to investigate
tho alleged charges ol bribery connected
with tho Doom Dill, that ho was stirring a
hornet's nest about tho cars of his fellow
Representatives and raising a Legislative
row, upon tho lttstory of which tho diangoi
would bo rung from ono end to the other of
That which had its inception in a joko
has proven to bo a very serious matter for
certain, at least, of our honorablo law-makers.
No sooner had the committuo appoint
ed In pursuance, of tho resolution held ono
meeting than it was most evident that there
was rather more in tho matter than had at
first been anticipated. Examination of tho
members was commenced, Inking them in al
phabetical order. This was done.tlie Commit
tco sitting with open doors. A few members
wcro examined when where there had been
but a little emoke the firo began to burn
brightly, and it was lound necessary to close
tho doors of tho Committee rooms and her
metically seal them to the inquisitive repre
sentative's of the Press. It had, however,
already been made public that certain mem
bers Iiad testified that the Hon. Peter Her-
die, tho chief boomer against tho Doom Hill,
had through his representatives at least in
directly made offers of money for "dodgers"
and voters against tho bill, $200 for a dodgo
and $-100 for an adverse vote.
Then through the testimony of Speaker
Patterson the name of Hon. Thomas A. Scott
was associated with the bill, rather more as
.1 peace-maker, however, than anything else,
but it was considered necessary by the Com
mitteo to close its doors.
Sinco that time tho Commlttco has pur
sued its duties arduously, attempting to keep
its work a strict secret. There have been
leakages, however and some of them of a
rather startling character, and the-fun of it
is, tho Herdlcites aro not the only parties
hurt but lo, the other side, tho immaculato
Lumbermen, nro discovered in tho role which
they so virtuously condemned in their 01
ponents. The journal clerk of thn Houso
Captain Skinuer is called to tho stand and
ho testifies that on several occasions a cer
tain member from Philadelphia named Pet
rofT who by his actions in general w as sup
posed to bo a firm friend of Herdic, had
evinced to him an ardent desiro to know
what Embick the chief of tho Lumbermen
wa willing to do on tho boom.
Skianer being a personal friend of Em
bick nnd ns he testifies interested in the
passage of the boom bill, in an official point
of view, desiring to be rid of tho trouble
some measure and relieved from keeping its
troublesome and iutricnto record, recounts
his interviews with Petroff to Embick, at
the same timo giving Embick to understand
that retrofi and his crowd wero brewing
mischief. Ho then states that for the pur
pose of testing this party a check for $7,500
was drawn by Embick and given into Skin
ner's nanus, i'etroll becoming cognizant
of this fact grew keener than ever and wont
so far as to go to a certain bank and inquire
whether or not Embicks check was good
for tho above amount. Being satisfied on this
point ho was ready for action but, Skinner
becoming convinced of the character of tho
man returned tho check to Embick, wit)
the information that Petroff was trying to
play a sharp dodge. Tho check wa9 then
aud there destroyed by Embick, while Pe
troff was left in ttatu quo, with a letter
in his own handwriting, asking "what
Embick is willing to do," still remain
ing in Skinner's hands. Said letter is
now ono of the valuable posesslons of
the committee and Petroff is non est inven
tus; rumored to have gono with Ilerdlc and
Embick lo attend Moody and Sankcy's mee
tings in Isew York.
