Charles Perkes, sworn—Last Sunday
afternoon I heard from Mrs. Dowell 's
sister thSt Mrs. Dowell had received only
$3O of the money announced as subscribed
for her ; I he offered to go to Mr. McElwee,
"City Pastor," and see what it meant ; I
learned that the: $81.50 had been paid to
tha"ity Pastor;" went to his residence
- and told, him he could pay the rest of It or
not, if he pleased; the "City Pastor" con
sidered that it was discretionary with him,
whether, to do so or not; he crumpled the
slip of paper in his, hand ; this paper had
the acknowledgment printed on it; I
asked him for the additional sum and ho
threw , the paper on the floor to me ; I
took it up and thanked biro Tor being a
gentleman; he wanted:to know if I was
a lawyer, -or by-what right I Interfered ;
I gave him my address and told him that
all I wanted of him was to prevent the
family of firs. Dowell from being Imposed

with me if we doubted his willingness to
pay over the money ; I told him that I
certainly did; he said that he did not
talk with ruffians, but if we came as gen
tlemen he would talk With us; we left
him ; he subsequently came to my house
a good deal agitated and said that if I
wouhlgo up to his houselie would let me
audit the accounts, and see that every
thing Was right; he showed me that
there was a typographiCal error winch
made of $1.50 $15:00; be had charged $2
for riding down in a carriage to take the
money to Mrs. Dowell; ,witress asked
him if he had so little conscience as to
charge a poor woman almost starving two
dollars for himself and wife to ride them
41oNvn to pay ten dollars; lie ordered me
out of the house ; I asked him if he in
tended to pay over the other $21.50 and he
refused to answer. •
A letter was read from Mr. McElwee to
the proprietors of a newspaper, in which
he states that he considered the matter
discretionary with him to disburse the
money he received. It was dated just af
ter the woman had received the first
thirty dollars, and before she received the
last thirty, in which Mr. McElwee sava
that there,.are persons to whom it would
be unwite to give even $.50 at a time, and
that thus he had not paid to Mrs. Dowell
the full amount intrusted to him ; that he
knew other parties in abject misery; and
that he never understood that he was left
no discretion in the distribution of alms
confided to his charge.
After the above evidence was elicited,
the Recorder reserved his decision in the
case till 10 o'clock, A. M., to-day.

TUE PEOPLE'S XONET.
Speech of Hon. William Hopkin.q, &litter
ed in the Senate of Prnrowlrania, on the
-,loth of April, 1,466, against eerlain
Lions of the general appropriation fill.
Mr. Speaker :—As T shall lie enmpelled
to withhold my vote Atom this bill, in its
present-form, I desire to put upon record
some of the reasons which influence me
in doing so.
Before doing this, however, I wish it
to he distinctly understood that most of
its provisions have my cordial approval,
and if they stood alone. or were even con
nected with a reasonable amount of objec
tionable matter, I would certainly -vote
for them. Among thew I must not fall
to mention the appropriation of three
hundred thousand dollars for the support
of schools for the education of the orphan
children of our brave soldiers.
This I regard the most praiseworthy
of 00 the provisions of the bill, andqt is
with tle Tv:it - est reluctance that I with
hold my vote from it, on account of other
matters which I cannot sanction, without
; Were Ito consider this hill as a whole,
RS a mere partizan, I would desire its
passage, for the reason that the Republ ice n
party Is rarely in the majority in - both
branches of the Legislatute, and have
the Governor, and would, therefore; be
held responsible for whatever wrong
there might he in it.
But I trust that I shall alnitys be actua
ted by higher and more statesmanlike
motives. The questions involved here
interest errry tar payer in the "(Ammon
wealth, and should, therefore, be discussed
upon their merits, without regard to how
it may ettinct either the one party or the
other.. In this spirit I propose to exam
-the, very briefly, some few of the Most
objectionable provisions of the bill. In
doing so, I shall be obliged to pass, unno
ticed, a number of items deserving atten
tion, in order that I may occupy the few
mottiopts allotted me in examining tho
more iinportant portions of it. "
The first item to which I invite the
attention of Senators is the extra compen
sation to subordinate officers. In this I
exclude the regular clerks, because they
do more labor for what they receive than
any other class.
This extra - pay amounts, in the aggre
gate, to twenty thousand and six hundred
dollars, (s),6oo,) . exelusive of the regular
pay of that portion of the officers who are
employed without authority of law.
To show that .there are those thus ein
ployed, I refer Senators to pamphlet laws
of 186.3, page 370, where this provision
will he found
"Site. 63. That the officers of the legis
lature, after the pre'sent session, shall be
as follows, to wit: For the Senate, one
chief Clerk, one assistant clerk, three
transcribing clerks, one librarian, one
sergeant-at-arms, one door keeper, four
assistant dpor eepers, one messenger,
four pages, one fireman, and one door
keeper in4he rotunda ; anti for the House
of Representatives, one chief clerk, one
assistant clerk, four transcribing clerks,
one sergeant-at-arms, two assistant ser
geants-at-arms, one: door iceeper, two
assistant door keepers,, one 'messenge'r,
and two assistant messengers', a postmas
ter, and . four pasters, and four- folders,
eight pages, one fireman, and one door
keeper in the fotutida, and no more; anti
none of said officers shall return, as such,
to the next meeting of the Legislature,
except the chief ' clerks, the assistant
clerks, ang one transcribing clerk, for
each House,•to be-designated by the chief
clerk, the librarian, the sergetint-at-arms,
and one assistant, the door keepers, and
one assistant, find the messengers and
postmaster; and all acts, and parts of acts,
inconsistent with the provisions of this
, section, are hereby repealed ; and it shall
not lie lawful for either house to increase
the number of officers hereby provided,
! without the consent of the other House."
, This law remains unrepealed on your
statute book to-day, unless it be claimed
that a disregard of Its requirements for
the past two years renders it obsolete.
Now let us see how far this bill con
forms to the act of Assembly. By the
provisions of this section, it will be per
ceived that the number of assistant ser
geants-at-arms, door keepers arid messen
gers Is limited - by the act to two for each
principal, while the bill before us provides
for four in each case, making a difference
The number of "pasters and folders" Is
fixed in the law at eight, and this provides
for Waken, being elevorof an excess. Add
those to the six just named, and you have
seventeen men in the House alone more
than the law authorizes, to say nothing
of extra clerks, pages, fie:
The regular pay of those supernumera
ries is three dollars per day, making, say,
five thousand diillars, which added to the
twenty thousand six hundred as above
stated, makek a total of tulenty-five ti ous
gni! six-hundred dollars ($2.5,600.)
If , I ant - not stating this case fairly, I
will thank any Senator to point out the
error, and I will be glad to stand correc
Perhaps the most palpable wrong here
complained of is in regard to the "posters
and folders," for I do not hesitate to ex
press the, opinion that five or six boys
would put up every document sent off
from the House and play half the thne.
In thii opinion I am sustained by practi
cal printers, who know all about the labor
connected with folding and pasting pa
pers and documents.
Sir, think of it a moment. Here are
nineteen men receiving not only regular
pay, but three dollars and fifty eentsper
day ez - tra, making six dollars and fifty
cents per day, and that, too, as has been
stated, for doing what five or six boys
could do without difficulty.
If we add all the subordinates of the
House together, (exclush`e of clerks,) It
will be found that the number is fort y men,
besides some ten boys as pages, being one
for every two nwm4ers,
Mr. speaker, it seems to me that if our
unsuspecting, tax-ridden people would
but epeud a day or two in Harrisburg,
and see the number of meu supported in
idleness, out of the public treasury, no
party could bear up under such a load.
Now in saying this, I must not be un
derstood as speaking unkindly of the men
thus paid, for I dare say that they are all
very clever men; but as this is probably
the last opportunity I shall ever have of
dolug so, I wish to renew a protest that I
have often made against such au abuse of
the trust reposed in us by a too confiding
This money, thus uselessly squandered,
would, if applied toward the payment of
interest on our public debt, pay on it over
four hundred thousand dollars, ($100,000.1
Or it would pay almost all the appropria

But those institutions were turned away,
because, forsooth, they were local. ,

I have been led to object to this section
from a casual examination of some of the
-bills for those repairs last year, under a
similar provision. And in what I JIM
about to say, I do not intend any imputa
tion upon the integrity of oar excellent
clerk, or of that of the clerk of the House,
under whose joint supervision the repairs
of the two halls were made, but that-they
have been imposed upon- is to my mind

tian shutters," which is thirty-five
lars per set, besides painting, which I
um informed, is twenty dollars per set,
tnakingfiftriler dollars. Now, from what
I have learned from practical men, this
is downright extortion to the amount of
from fifteen to twenty dollars per set.
Another charge is for "eighty uphols

at twenty dollars each, making sixteen

supervision of the superintendent of pub

I can only give the result. This bill
amounted to about twenty-four hundred
dollars, acrd was regarded by the account
ing officers as so monstrous that they cut
it down to some sixteen hundred dollars,
which the contractor accepted, and alleg
ed as a reason, for the enormous charge
in the original bill, that the superintend
ent of public buildings was to receive a
portion of the profits; and this is the way
the money of the people is squandered.
A superintendent of public buildings
is appointed, sod he gives out contracts
'to his favorites, I suppose, and in- a bill
for repairs the accounting officers curtail
It eight hundred dollars, and the cont ract
or shields himself, or attempts to do so,

to share the profits.

IMr. Speaker, there are many other items
in this bill which '1 would be glad to notieo

not detain the Senate longer than simply
to add that the amount of these hills for

gave his friend the followhig hard one :
"Now I remember that when ho came

down to dine together. A; dispute arose
between them as to the meaning of a cer

he Just now tried to quote, but couldn't.
