E. O. GOODRICH. S. W. *LITCHI*
Towanda, , Thursday, Feb. 27, 1873.
One of our Representatives, mites
the Commissioners' Clerk, that a
prominent citizen of eastern Brad
ford hail informed him that , stories
- are in circulation in his part of the
county to the effect that the Com
missioners are taking measures for
building a Court House at Troy, and
that Mantes friends are making 1184
of the' report to forward the Miniie
qua scheme. The county Commis
sioners p - ronounce the story a pure
fabrication, as they have never enter
tained the remotest idea of erecting
any building at Troy, for the reason
that there is no necessity for one.
The report probably had its origin
with the same parties who, last win
ter, attempted to snake through the
legislature?. bill reqUiring the Cora
tnissioners to expend one hundred
thousand dollars in the erection of
buildings at Troy. The game is
" too thin," and will deceive but few.
" lIIINNEQVA" AGAIN.
We learn that the House Commit
tee have reported affirmatively. the
bill for the erection of the new coun
ty of Minnequa. Had the opponents .
of the iniquitous measure complied
with the demands of certain members
of the committee, and "cams down
with the stamps," the bill would nev
er have seen day light., We speak
from personal knowledge Nvhen we
say that the chairman of the com
mittee, Mr. PRIZER, of Chester coun
ty, said " the same means which
HERDIC wail; using to get an affirma
tive report trOm the committee would
have to be -employed by those op.
posed to it, In order to defeat It."
With -such men in the legislature,
what security have the 'honest peo
ple of the Commonwealth that their
rights and wishes will be relpeeted
This is unquestionably Mr. PRIZER'S
"last year " in the State legislature,
.bnt we advise the Republicans of
Chester county to keep a sharp look
on their " worthy member of the
church," who appears to be an apt
student of the immaculate JOSEPHS,
of Philadelphia, in his role of repre
sentative. We wouldn't trust -him to
take up a collection in church. Other
member of the committee ar 3 known
to have pocketed their " divY," and
we snail give' their names whenever
we obtain proof positive. When
members of the legislature openly
confess that they cannot, afford to
oppose such measures as the Minne
quaischeme, and HERDIC'S Boom bill,
it is time their constituents fill their
places with men who can afford to
It is due to Mr. ! MvErt, of this
county, MITCHELL, of Tioga, Aromas,
of Montgomery, and one other mem
ber of the committee, to sat that
they apposed the. bill with marked
energy and ability,
If the Judases on the committee
would follow the example of their il
lustrious prototype, the country

Saturday last was the anniversary
of the birth Of one who was " first in
war, first in peace and first in the
hearts of his countrymen." WASH
INGTON'S name is known and revered
iu every American honie as one
whose history presents the brightest
and most honored page in the annals
of the world. , The lapse of time can
never efface or affect the record of
the immortal hero whose pre-emi
nently genius and unexcelled patri
otism contributed so, much to the
establishment of a Country whose
enviable boast is the extent of her
power and the glorious freedom of
her, institutions. And so long as
the world stands the natne will be
mentioned with reverence by those
who have realized' the fulness of the
gracious boon that has descended to
his countrymen as the result of his
labors and sacrifices, and so long as
time lasts will Americans delight to
celebrate the day that witnessed his
kir " He that fails to teach his
'boy a trade teaches him to steal," is
au old proverb, but one which is pe
culiarly applicable to our, day. The
following significant statistics, taken
from the last annual report of State
Superintendent WICKERSHAM, is a
strong argument in favor of instruct
ing boys in some useful mechanical
tr de : "There are multitudes only
waitingior Vacant clerkships and un
filled offices, while mechanical work,
more honorable and more remunera
tive, invites on all - sides the efforts of
willing hands. It is a fact as start
ling as it is significant that of 16,000
criminals in the United States in
1872, 97 per cant. of them had never
learned a trade. Out of 210 convicts
received at ; the Eastern Penitentiary
last year only 12 had been appren-.
ticed and served their time.
i One of PETEIeN games is to
create the impression that some peo
ple who profess to oppose his divis
'ion scheme are at heart in favor of
it. Among this class, we. hear the
mine •of Maj. DARrr. Those who
know Maj. D. need not be told that
ho is honestly • and inflexibly opposed
to the iniquition.s scheme, and done
all in his power to defeat it.

We have never deemed it mem
ry to call the attention of our read
ers to the fact-thtt the bill now be
fore the LegislatOre, for the erection

power to issue an unlimited amount
of bends, bearing seven and three
tenths per cent. interest, because
nearly all the people to be taken in
to the new county protest against it,
even if no bonds were to be issued.
If the bill becomes slaw, everyman
in the county knows that money
Accomplishes the result. The quer!,
tion of the rights o? the people to be
affected by this legislation is not
considered by its advocates. The
only individual whose interests or
wishes are consulted, is PETER HER
DIC, who will add several hundred
thousand dollars to his ill-gotten
coffers, at the expense of the tax
payers of the insignificant county.
Hence his liberality in " convincing"
members of the Committee that the
proposed county is it necessity. -
The Harrisburg Daily Patriot pub
lishes the following timely article
upon the subject
THE Couz or Mn' us.—By a
vote of ten to five the house commit-
tee on Tuesday night agreed to re.
port Peter Herdic's new county job,
and on Wednesday mortning, the bill
was repqrted to the House. In or
der to evade that section of the con
stitution which prohibits Ole taking
away of over one-tenth its popula
tion without the express Zensent of
its raters, less than one-tenth of
each of the counties of Bradford, Ly
coming, Tioga, and Sullivan is cut
off to make the new county of Min
nequa. In many instances town
ships are cut in. two. But when the
bill shall be passed and the new
county of the Lord of Minnequa es
tablished, nothing ,will be easier
than to reunite tbe dissevered and
mutilated parts and' to bring them 1
under the new munici p ality by suc
supplements. Mr. Herdic
will have only to go b k next win
ter for the balance ~f is-load. tit
tle Sullivan, with a.)o t five thous
and -inhabitants a.:d - our hundred
square miles loses a-arty one-tenth
of its population at,.l territory. This
despoliation of Suilv:la was,necessa
ry in order to prevt.-:.t an expression
of the will of the people and, at the
same time keep within the require
ment of the constitution that no new
county shall be establi'shed contain
ing less than four, hundred square
miles.- By taking ,the township of
Fox from Sullivan to eke out the
lordship of Nfinnequa this virtuous
committee have, left SaLivau county
Without the foul hundred square
miles which the constitution re
quires. 'ln other words, in order to
make for Herdic of Minnequa a
county with the territory which the
constitution requires, another county
must be stripped so as to leave it -
without sufficient territory. Can a
majority be found in the legislature
so corrupt and reckless as to do this
thing to serve the ends of the lobby
man of Minnequa? The amendment
of 1861 was made to prevent the
legislature from forming new coon
ties without sufficient territory and
to prevent the spoliation.of counties
already established. Is n it necessary
to argue the proposition that to take
away from a county already estab
lished so much territory as to leave
it without the requisite four hun
dred square miles is as flagrant a
violation of the constitution as would
be the erection of a new county with
out sufficient territory? This is a
question which we submit to the
able constitutional lawyers of the
house who are lending themselves to
this mercenary and selfish scheme of
the Proprietor of Minnequa. If the
constitution prohibits the erection of
a new county without,a certain ex
tent of territory, is it not a flagr.ant
and palpable violation of the consti
tution to strip a county 'already es
tablished of so much territory as to
reduce it below the minimum, in or
der to put the new county on its
legs ? If the legislature cannot erect
a new county with less than four
hundred square miles, can it reduce
an old county beloNi four hundred
rq uarp miles iu order to get territo
ry enough for the new one ? Peter
Herdic's attorneys in the legislature
need not answer all these questions
at once. -,• ~
The _impudent pretense is made
that the people of the territory to be
taken into' Peter's new county and
done for are' in favor of the scheme.
f this were true these people dis-
Play a cheerfulness in accepting bur
dens for his sole benefit that entitles
them to the highest admiration. But
why then the anxiety to prevent any
expression of their will on this ques
tion ?' The simple truth is the ma
jority of them never heard of this
job until it was brought before the
legislature. The petitions are either
forgeries or have been procured by
false 'representations. ...The scheme
is solely in the interest of Peter Her
dic.. There would be as much pro - -
priety in erecting a new county of
Prizer out; of parts of Chester, Lan
caster an 4, Berks, with the county ,
seat tit Chester Springs, or a
county tint 'of Schuylkill, Columbia
and Luzerne, with the county -- seat
at. Berwick, as there is in this 1 - job.
With the Hon. Levi Prier, ns chair—
man of theli committee on counties,
and with Such arguments ns Peter
Herdic is accustomed to produce,
there would be no more difficulty in
the accomplishment of these schemes
thtin that which seems to attend the
attempt of - Peter Herdic_ to despoil
the counties of Lycoming, Bradford,
Tioga:and Sullivan. The represen
from all these 'counties are
inflexibly opposed to thisjob. They
could not face their constituents af
ter giving-it their support or mutely
conniving at its accomplishment,
What argument was so powerful in
Mr. Prizer's committee as to prevail
over the protests of the representa
tives of all the counties assailed in
this bill ? A few days ago the shab
by pretense for supporting the job of
the Passenger. Union railway compa
ny was that it had the almost unani
mous approbation of the members
from city. Why, then, does not
the same comity prevail in this case?
Why should the committee, iKviola
tiOn of that omity, report a`bill- in
defiance of the remonstrance of the
representatives of the counties in
, terested ? - If Mr. Priza and his
committee will not, Mr. Herdic can
answer this question.

Tlit) Harrisburg Patriot draws this
truthful' picture of PETER HERDIC :
Touch pitch and be defiled. Vote
for Herdic and be suspected. It is
not without reason that - the constitu
ents of any man who votes for Her
die and his peculiar measures scan
his-conduct and look for the out
cropping of ill-gotten gains. If they
could come to the capital an'd see
Herdic and_the other harpies Of the
lobby flitting in and out of 'commit
tee: rooms, button holding corrupt
Members and conferring 'with sits
petted Senators, holding meetingS- at
the rooms of the kingi3 and -treasur
ers of the legislative rings, and pre
paring lists of •yeas and nays for the
final vote, they would suspect, as ev
ery man here believes, that the
Scorned name of "bribed legislator"
ought to be branded un the • front of
many who seek to pass among them
as the pnrest of the
measures bring the Williamspo:t
king of the ring to Harrisburg this
-winter. The one is the new county
of Minnequa pushed solely in his
own interest, an outrage on the pee=
pie of every county . named •in the
bill, and ' , to be passed, if passed at
.all, by corrupt influence. The other
object is to maintain his fat monopo
ly with its
,high tolls on the lumber
consumers in every city, to*n and
hamlet in Eastern Pennsylvania.—
Of the ,:first we have spoken else
where. The boom monapoly we
stigmatize now, as we: have - always
styled' it, as a gross outrage on the
people and lumbermen. In 1866,
upon the pretextof the largo cost of
a new . dam, thelegislature permit
ted the increase of boon:loge to one
dollar and twenty-five cents on. every
thousand feet of logs that passed
through the boom, until the boom was
paid for. Every year since, this rate
has been pa d upon at least 100,000,-
000 feet of logs by the consumers of
lumber. This is equal to $250,000.
annually. During 1872, 298,000,009
feet of lumber passed through the.
boom, and there are yet iu it 60;000,-
000 more. On-this, say on :150,000,-
000 feet, the boom' monopoly in five
years sweeps into its rich coffers
over $437,000. Their dam did not
