Syndicate Says Broadcloth and Ice Cream Thrice Dally and Quail on Toast Every Other Bay Too Rich for Orphans- Etc. ot THE April 13. The sensation of the times at the capital is the investigation being made by Governor assisted by Attorney-General Cassidy of the syndicate that is conduct- ing tho Soldiers' Orphans Schools. Previ- ous to the present investigation his Excellency has made frequent visits to the schools. He visited them during the of his term and has repeated hie official visits on several occasions since. He found no fault at the time. On the contrary witnesses are not wanting who can testify thai he publicly approved of their management. His observing eye and rigid economical policy detected no molasses barrel wash tubs or extrava- gance. There was no immorality hinted at or suspicions that tha grand old com- monwealth over which he presides with schoolboy vigilance was annually being gouged out of many thousand dollars. Whatever irregularities exist were called to his Excellency's attention by a corre- spondent and editor of a Quaker City daily whose boss thirsted for the scalp oi General a member of the syndicate. As Pearson was suspected of aiding the opposition to certain legisla- tions iu which the Quaker City uews- paper mau -was interested the Orphans school investigation was suggested as a plan of revenge. The head of Pearson as clerk of the House and member of the and 'Kepublican State Commit- tee must be chopped off. As Lord High Executioner this newspaper Ro-Ko is wielding the exposure of thoOrphan School Syndicate as the weapon to perform the scivice. But the Orphan School Syndi- cate may yefc as the Nanki while the Mikado or commonwealth may give the ill-tempered editor a dose of boiling or some lingering death. An outsider gives THE ERA this very dear version of the affair. He knows it to he the true inwardness that actuated the Quaker City editor and his henchman who has been hob nobbing over the commonwealth at the exposure of the State lor the past month with Gov- ernor Pattison anil the Attorney-General. Ia support of the whole he says the con- duct of Governor Pattison in making an absolutely ex parte investigation may be recited. His most intimate friend or po- litical admirer cannot deny that he has re- peatedly refused to hear the evidence of the members of the syndicate. It is thought this one sidod way of conducting an investigation will not be recognized by the intelligent who in the end will be called upon to render a verdict in accordance with the facts. So far as the tho Attorney-General aud tho informers are concerned the above may be regarded as true in every particular. THE ERA man cheerfully gives this opinion of the who have been denied a hearing He liaa already seen Gordon actl Paul. Ex-Senator Wright says he unspeakably worried over the notoriety tbat was sprung upon him while he wag away on a pleasure excursion to the Pacific slope. It will perhaps be remembered by tho readers of THE ERA that Tom Geo. Pearson and their wives bad a jolly time on a trails-continental trip dur- ing the winter. They went to California on the proceeds of tho syndicate in some form or other unnecessary to mention. The cloud that shadowed the pleasure of the syndicate and their friends was the ex- posure. returned he found himself powerless to stay the tide of indig- nation that had been manufactured against himself and partners. Tho refusal of the Governor to hear Raul or Pearson or Gor- don or anybody associated with him was heralded to the country aa glad tidings by the enemies of the syndicate who had suc- ceeded in catching the ear and the applause of the people. He does not wonder why he has been burned in effigy and his every attempt at explanation made the subject for ridicule aud derision But he Bays the day will come long before Gov. his Attorney General or the Quaker City nnwspaper men can successfully niEinnfac- ture any political capital when the sydi- cato will be heard. He says Gov. Pattison may possibly be able to control himself and his officials and their bub he cannot deny or prevent an impartial trial in the wtieu ail aides will obtain a hearing. Gordon was present and nodded assent to what said. They are a mild pair of the last ones to be suspected of taking the money appropriated to maintain and supporb orphans' schools lor their own use. Their offense seems a mean and a serious but it may not be a misdemeanor. What they have done may all have been conducted according to law. If it could be proven they obtained money under false pretense they might be punished. If the chnit'O Lbnli Lliejr ici'noc-d to t'cirniuli sary clothing for the orphans as provided by law could be sustained such acts would constitute a misdemeanor. But here is where the syndicate claims great power. They say they have not only not violated the law but that they have famished cloth- ing iu excess of what the law required. They are almost indifferent to other charges. One of the members facetiously says Pennsylvania has done well enough by the soldiers1 bnt it does not contemplate dressing tha orphans in broad- cloths and satins or giving them ice cream three times a day or quail on toast every other meal. Where the syndicate made their money was by denying the orphans the luxuries of life that might have been purchased from the surplus of extravagant and almost unwarranted appropriations. As an evidence of some of their winnings TJIK ERA submits the following statement. It will be seen the syndicate has been a better than the oil or gas business so far as profits are When the investigation inlo the management ssK-s. their it is fair to put the profit of that institution at per annum. Prom the table given by Principal of the Mount Joy to Governor it appears that the expenditures for 256 children and boarding tturtesn grown persons were as follows Bills for quarter ended Nov. ISso...... 50 Eills for quarter ended Feb. 18SG...... 75 Wages for six months............................ 00 Total 2 The profits for the six months can therefore bo readily as will be seen br the follow- ing _ Receipts from the For quarter ended November 1885.....S9.5GO 15 For quarter ended February 09 Less expenditures S19.G1S '24 25 iit. Joy profits for six months SS.Slo The books of the Mount Joy School loosely and failed to show the actual state of its affairs. A portion of the expenses of the M'AllLs- terville School has been charged to the Mount Joy account for some reason that U not and a loan of was made to the Mercer school. TJntil the relations of Paul to the Joy School can be accurately determined it will be difficult to tell what the dividends amounted. to and what was paid if for but so far as can be gleaned from the imperfect book- keeping ot the establishment it would seem that was taken out of the school treasuary ing as profits on an original iu vestment of dividend of 154 per per the apparent division being as George W. Wright John Gordon James L. Paul..... The bank book which would have shown the actual payments and profits could not be had. It should also be remembered that George W. also had an interest in three other Mercer and Chester Springs. Gordon was interested in M'Alllstcr- vule and while Paul held a fourth inter- est in Chester Springs. Had they bacn allowed to go on uninterruptedly until May which terminates tlie school year.it is believed that the profits on four syndicate schools would have been At Dayton on a capital of there was a division of nearly during the year which ended February 1S8S. This divi- dend equaled fifty-eight per per and shows that the children have been clothed and educated at an average cost of about SSi per thong tx the State paid S1J0 per year lor all children over ten years and ior chil- dren under that age. A comparison of the pro- vision made for the chi'dren at Dayton and at syndicate schools would show that the cose to Gordon Co. could not have been more than 375 per head per annum.

Griffith waa tried in the Lucas county Common Pleas Court. The action was brought to recover an amount alleged to be due for services rendered. The jury eleven members bsiug for the plaintiff and D. W. for the defendant. Judge Leinmon has issued au order of at- tachment for the bodies of Griffith and Updegraff ou tho complaint of who charges the two with subornation. Ia hia complaint the plaintiff alleges that wade piopositiona to Griffith to sell and barter his influence in obtaining a and that during t-he trial Upde- grafT communicated with GrifiHh about the case.

The small territory cau always he gauged from time to time by the market. To one who keeps on operations ife is really very funny to observe the effects that the price of crude has along the old and lirne- worn hills. From Kendall Creek to Four Mile rig timber is strewn rig glycerine and lots of other stuff is being shipped right along. Business is beginning to assume it old-time aspect. Probably the busiest town along the line is Derrick on the C. V. IX where the drill is being pushed quite extensively. New houses are going up and the place begins to look like a live oil town. The roads are drying up considerably and the pros- pects point to some activity in these sec- tions in the near future. At of cleaning out and drilling the wells to the fourth sand ia the order of tbe day. Bussell leased 150 acres of the Shaddick composed of twenty-three which they will drill immediately. The tract was con- sidered n. n short time bnt they are now getting some fair producers. It lies between Four Mile and Eldred and runs parallel with the gas- streak which con- tinues near Indian Creek between Knapp's Creek and Eldred and supplies Olean with ber fuel. These parties have one rig in course of construction aud will start four more in a day or so. Fifty acres were purchased by Olean names who will start developing it in a week. The An gel 1 Oil Co. will commence clean- ing out fifteen or twenty wells noxfc week. Frauchot moved their old derrick from the hole on the Fries where they had so much trouble with one loca- aud will drill another well. K. Van Campen ia drilling oue well and building a rig on the Howard farm. Ernest Perrin have a rig in course of construction on the Weston farm. WASHINGTON. review of the field in tho Re- under date of April is anything but encouraging to tho operators of that section. Developments in the Washington field are just now approaching a crisis. The much mooted question as to whether the territory adjacent to the Smith is spotted or will be solved in a very short time. Two wells are close to where the oil ought to be and three or four others will fallow on the heels of the two very closely in their advent as gnshers or dus- ters. Smith No. seventy-five rods north of the famous is now drilling in the Ganfz .sand which they struck in the bottom of according to Galligan's some oil should bo ob- tained and in the fifty-foot a few feet below tho the generous quan- tity that has made No. 1 the banner well of tbe should be tapped. Solar the symptoms are identical with No. 1 and it is safe to say that No. 2 should be and will bo a larjre well. Pew Ecaei'son No. on tho It. D. is located 220 rods north of Hmith No. 1 and 140 rods north of the Smith No. 2. Thia well was reported as in tho aand some time ago and showing a larger volume of gfts tuan Smith. No. 1 did afe Iho aamo level. deeper drilling has proved that the sand supposed to be the Gantzwas a gas sand and after casing off this gas at feet they struck the sand and more gas at to aud they struck it io place. Ttwill be touch and go with these two wells which reaches the spot iirst where the fluid ought to with chances in favor of Smith No. 2 on ac- count of that well using the heavier tools. Pew being so far could como in dry and uot hurt the field very but Smith No. 2 must be n good well or throw a wet blanket on the boped of many operators. Should either or both of these wells prove they un- questionably will continue to the Gordon 1-in fpfth hp.lnw thn hnt.fom ol Uie fifty-foot saud. No well in this section of the field has yet to thafc horizon. That many will have to seek that level is patent to all who run and read and stndy this field of surprises. By far the important of all the wella close to tbe is the Munhall on the R. D. 160 rods from Smith No. 1. This well is close to the gas. and will not be more than a few days behind the and will go far toward demonstrating the exist- ence or non-existence of oil in that direc- tion. Willetta No. about sixty rods southwest of Smith No. isnearing the spot aud will follow closely on the Munhall Smithman. Vandergrift No. on the 160 rods and Union Oil Company No. 1. on the 160 rods south of Smith will follow the Willets. All of these wells have made excellent time. None of them have been over sixty days on the and the Manball Smithman has reached its pres- ent forty-eight days. To-day tbe Washington field has not a single new rig in'course of construction. But with the advent of some good all of tbe many strong companies operat- ing here will see that nobody hurts them and many more locations will be be the price of crude what it may.
