Letter from Harrlsbnrg.
IIabbishcro, March 11, 1872.
Another week has passed, and it has
been an exceedingly cold one, yet a very
busj legislative week. Some very im
portant public bills have been acted on.
I notice in this correspondence only the
action of the Legislature on all public
bills, and bills relative to your county,
believing that they are the only ones in
which your readers have any interest.
The Senate acted on tbe following bills
relative to your conuty :
An act relating to the publication of
legal advertising iu the county ot J umata
Providing an assessor of school tax for
Evaudale school district, in Juniata and
An act to allow the patoniug of a cer
tain snrvev in Juniata county. Passed.
A further supplement to au act, enti
tled an act to incorporate the Odd Fel
lows' hall association of the borough ot
Mifilintown, Juniata county, approved
April 6th, 1S50. Passed.
The bill in relation to the public print
ing in your county has passed both
Houses and requires the county commis
sioners to have the county advertising
done in but two papers, and they the
ones having the largest circulation.
The following are all the public bills
of importance, and are of interest to all
your readers :
Mr. White called up a bill providing
for two additional judges of the Supreme
Court one to fill the vacancy, aud one
additional to the present number, making
six in all the two so elected to hold
office for fifteen years from the first Mon
day iu December next. Each voter may
give one voto to each of two candidates,
or two votes to one, as he imy see fit.
This is the bill referred to in my last
LIQVOR OX ELECTION DAY.
House bill preventing the sale or giv
ing away of liquor on election day, dur
ing the hours in which tho polls are
open, tame up. The Senate committee
having struck out the provision prohibit
ing the giiinj of liquor on that day by
any person, thus extending the provi
sions alone to dealers and saloon kee
pers. This bill has passed both branches
and goes to the Goveruor for his signa
An act passed providing that in case
of a nonsuit or verdict for defendant in
an ejectment, the defendant may enter a
rule requiring ihe plaintiff to sue out a
writ of error to the Supreme Court with
in nne rear, or be forever debarred from
so doing. i
Mr. Davis, of Berks, called up a bill
which passed, making the act ot March
14, 1865, to actions of dower where the
plaintiff died before the passage of that
The bill securing to married women
their separate earnings came up on thiid
reading and passed yeas 17, nays 13.
Mr. Dechei t called up a bill extending j
the competency of persons to witnesses
in certaiu criminal cases, J
The bill provides that parties accused
of misdemeanors, except perjury and
forgery, may at their own request be
witnesses on their own behalf.
A bill was passed and signed by the
Governor authorizing an increase in the
capital stock of Pennsylvania Railroad
Company 22 500,000, and to change the
time of tho annual meeting of stock
holders aud election of directors. This
increase makes the capital stock of that
corporation about SO,000,000 Five
years ago it was but 525,000,000.
The following bills were introduced in
the Senate :
.Mr. Davis, of Philadelphia, iutroduced
a bill protecting practioners of medicine
and surgery against unfounded law suits.
Mr. l'etiikeu Compelling railroad
companies to provide caboose cars for
the protection of conductor and other
employees on freight trains.
Mr. While Itegulaiiug the salo of
drugs ' aud poisons in l'ennsylvauia,
which authorizes the Governor to ap
point an examining Roard of two physi
cians and one druggist.
An act for the reorganization, regula
tion and discipline of the State Militia
was up and discussed in the House, but
laid over without reaching any definite re
sults, sud will hardly be passed the pres
The McCIurc-Gray committee were
given leave to set in Philadelphia during
the sessiou of the Senate and until the
end of this week.
A little speck of war is brewing in the
oil regions between the people and the
greed of corporate power. At the last
sessiou of tho Legislature a bill was
passed chartering the South Improvement
Company, which is a combination made
up of the refining interest and all the
railway interests leading out of the oil
regions of Pennsylvania, which together
propose to make themselves the sole ex
clusive men between the oil producers
on the one Land, and all the consumers
of oil throughout the globe on the other.
The operation of this combination is in
tended to be as simply this : That every
barrel of oil produced shall pass through
the hands of this company, and shall
pay tribute to said company, starting off
at, say at the rate of one dollar per bar
rel, and this toll must come out of the
producers and the consumers, or both.
It is a huge attempt to arrestand prevent
the natural course of production, trade,
industry and commerce in connection
with the oil trade of this State, in order
to monopolize that business and make
such profits as they may desire. Great
excitement has been created all through
the oil country and large meetings of the
producers have been held. A large dele
gation of oil men will be here this week
to endeavor hto obtain such legislation as
will relieve them from the effects of the
Tho Evans Investigation Committee!
held a meeting last week and examined
a large number of witnesses, amon"'
them Dr. Paine. His witness testified
that the resolutions published in the New
York Tribune were prepared by bis At
torney (Mr. Straban). These resolutions
attacked State Treasurer Mackey, and
Auditor General Oartranft. Jhe witness
testified that be bad no personal knowl
edge that any of the allegations contain
ed in the resolutions were true. His evi
dence clearly showed that the solutions
were a black-mailing scheme, and got
np for the purpose of compelling those
officials to settle the Evans claim against
the interest of the people.
The Congressional Apportionment Rill
as reported in the House last Friday
makes your district . exactly what your
correspondent predicted it would be J u
niat. Perry, Franklin, Fulton and Red
ford This makes a close Democratic
district ot about five hundred majority
for them; but one which upon proper
exertion can be carried by the Republi
cans at least three times out of five. The
bill also puts Mifflin county with Clear
field, Clarion, Centre and Elk Mr. Wal
laces district and if it passes as reported,
which I think it will, gives the Republi
cans 16 districts and the Democrats 10
in the State.
The week just passed has been a busy
one for the hotels and legislative commit
ties. One delegation after another came
rolling into tbe capitol by the car loads.
First came a delegation of Aldermen
from Philadelphia to urge the passage of
a bill to increase their jurisdiction. The
same train brought a delegation of law
yers from the same city to oppose the
Aldermaus bill. Two delegations from
Pittsburg were here one in favor of the
coal mining bill, and one against it. A
large delegation from the lumber regions
opposed a boom bill and one to fight for
it. A delegation of military men to
urge the passage of the military bill be
fore referred to and a delegation of broad
brimmed ebad belly coated Quakers were
here to oppose its passage. Then they
were delegations from various parts of
the Stale pleading for a place in the ap
propriation bill for the different institu
tions they represent, and last came a
huge delegation of Reformers from Phil
delphia the silk hatted, kid gloved gent
lemen, who have taken the politics of
that city in band and mean hereafter to
run the primariei themselves, and as
they do all the cheating iu high life they
want to monpolizc the business and put
themselves in positiou to do it also in
The Senate passed a resolution to ex
tend the time of final adjournment to the
16th of April, and sent it to the House
which body refused very justly to con
cur, and voted it down by the handsome
vote of 73 to 8. There is realy no rea
son for this action upon the part of the
Senate. There are but three public bills
of importance, awaiting legislative action
the constitutional convention bill.
which will be the special order for to
morrow, the Congressional Apportion
ment, aud Appropriation bills which
can surely be disposed of again the 23th
of this month, the time originally set
and much of the private local legislation
to be acted on yet, had better be left un
passed. Mr. AVallace introduced a joint resolu
tion that changes the features of the
Evans swindle very materially. It au
thorizes the State Treasurer to demand
from the United States Government the
money improperly and wrongfully paid
to Geo O. Evans It seems that, in ac
cordance with the law of Congress pro
viding for the payment by the United
States of claims due States, it expressly
stipulated that the money found to uc
due States shall not be paid to any
"Agent' or "Attorney" so the Slate
Treasure will look to the United States
Government for the amount Evans em
bezzled. The United States officials will
have to go for Mr. Evans.
Hon. Wmr B.'Waddell, of West
Chester, i3 the Republican nominee for
Senator in the 5th district. He was a
member of the House several years ago,
and served with distinction to himself
and his constituents. The election takes
place on the 15th.
Tbe Gubnatorial question stands much
as it did when I last wrote you. Hart
ranft still retains the lead. Perry, Ches
ter, Rutler, Lycoming, Northampton and
Delaware counties have instructed for
him, The foul tongue of slander seems
to have failed entirely to alineate the con
fidence of the people. They know that
he has served them faithfully nd honest
ly, for the last twelve years, and that he
undoubtedly deserves the distinguished
honors they propose to heap upon him
by elevating him to the highest office in
A murder case has been on trial here
for the last ten days, creating a good deal
of excitement. A man by the name of
Shaffner is charged with having poisoned
two wives and one man. The case will
go to the jury this evening and the gen
eral opinion is that be will be hung.
Last Saturday the Republicans of
Lancaster county held their primary elec
tion. . The Crawford County System is
the one under which they nominate.
They did not confine themselves to
county and district nominations. They
voted for candidates for President, Vice
President and Governor. Grant for

Philadelphia politics needs reforming.
Let us have some light on the Decbert
Lyndell case by all means :
Robert J. McQuillan, Twenty-fifth Pi
vision. Nineteenth Ward, testified to re
peaters at the polls. He challenged a
young man who wanted to vote illegally,
and he then went away and voted in the
Sixteenth Division. Oue man gave the
residence of No. 2161 Bodiite street;
there is no house there ; a young man
offered to vouch for him, aud said he
lived in the first cottage house above Al
derman Smith's; I said, " How long have
you lived there V He said, "A year and
a half;" I replied, "That- is Strang, I
have been living in that bouse over ten
years myself-'' (Laughter.)
J. Seybert testified that he was sent
for by Colonel McClure the day before tbe
election, who wished him to supervise ar
rangements to detect fraud in the north
ern part of the city ; I employed twenty
three men to whom I paid $15 a piece to
act as detectives ; they reported to me
that fraud was going on at the Eleventh
Division, Nineteenth Ward ; went down
there ; I saw M illiam Rittenhouse ; got
into his confidence; he induced one of
our detectives named Doherty, to vote
for Gray, and said to me, "Send along all

Philadelphia Inquirer writes of hydro
phobia, in the former city as follows :
Some terrible cases of hydrophob'a
which recently occurred in Brooklyn
have created considerable alarm. On
Friday, the Gtii of February, a little gul,
11 years old, named Julia Connolly, was
bitten in the lip by a black tan dog at the
corner of Spencer street and Park ave
nue. The wound healed np, but on
Monday last the girl was seized with
convulsions, and although medieal aid
was brought into requisition, the poor
little sufferer was relieved from agony
by death. It is said that five other
children were bitten on the same occa
sion. A gang of burglars met with a singu
gular mishap in Manchester, Ohio, a few
nights since. Eleven in number they
went at midnight to rob tbe first Nation
al Bank. Entering the building with a
false key they proceeded to open the door
of the safe with powder. While lighting
the fuse a spark fell npon a keg of pow
der which they had brought, and an ex
plosion of unexpected proportions follow
ed. Two men were killed outright, and
another had a leg fearfully mang1d.
The others escaped, but all except two of
them have been captured. With one ex
ception the burglers were re sidents of the
county, where for seven years they have
been committing depredations.
