" VENTILATE '? THE BRIDGES. [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 5 February 1869

" VENTILATE '? THE BRIDGES. According to the report of the County Auditors, the bridge building system in this county needs a little " ventilation." It appears that instead of giving contracts to lowest bidders, the building of bridges, which have cost the county about ^70,000 during the last three years, the Commissioners have a contractor of their own , and by some private arrangement or un- . derstanding they have been paying just whatever was agreed upon between them and him. The people and other contractors were entirely ignored. Under this system we should think the Commissioners' ofice might he made quite a fat institution, almost as much so as the pasters and folders! department at Harrisburg. We will have more to say cm this j subject hereafter. |

THE PRESS TRIUMPHANT! [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 5 February 1869

THE PRESS TRIUMPHANT! Six weeks ago probably less than live per cent, of the adult population of Pennsylvania knew of the existence of such an institution as a pasters and folders department at Harrisburg. To-dny ojmpst everybody throughout the State is i>erfectJy familiar with a most outrageous and bare-faced system of plunder, to and through that very obscure and comparatively insignificant department. How faithless and corrupt representatives, and thieving bnrnmefs and hangers on managed te steal many thousands of dollars, under pretense of earning it by pasting and folding papers, is known and thoroughly understood by almost every taxpayer. The plunderers and corruptionists are publicly known, and, as is admitted on all sides, nineteen out of every twenty of them, now occupying seats in our Legislative Halls, will go home at the close of the present session, to stay. It is also a conceded fact that the people are thoroughly aroused to the importance of nominating be...

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 5 February 1869

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP [CULLED FROM VARIOUS SOURCES.] It is generally conceded that Mr. Blaine will be the choice of a majority of the Representatives for Speaker of the next House. The candidates for clerk are the incumbent, Mr. McPherson, Rosewell Hart, recently a member from New York , and Mr. Eckley, at present a member from Ohio. From present appearances Mr. McPherson will have an easy race and be re-elected. The Secretary of State again denies that there are any negotiations going on for the purchase of Cuba. It appears that some six or eight months ago overtures were made through our Minister to the Spanish Government relative to a purchase of that Island. The Spanish Government declined to entertain the proposition, since which time the Government has not renewed the overtures. Mr.Schcnck, chairman of the Committee of Ways and Means of the U. S. House of Representatives, said, in a speech on Tuesday last, that there was a parcel of speculators through the country w...
