 740 Report of Select Committee—Commission to Mr. DeCosmos. 1876
REPORT OF THE SELECT COMMITTEE
relative to the payment op a
COMMISSION TO MR. AMOR DECOSMOS.
Mr. Dickinson, Mr. Douglas,
Mr. Bryden, Mr. Smithe,
Mr. Fisher in the Chair.
After taking the evidence of Mr. Armstrong, your Committee beg to report as
follows:—
The Commission of Six hundred dollars, for obtaining a loan of Thirty thousand
dollars from Sir James Douglas, appears to have been paid to Mr. Amor DeCosmos on
the 20th October, 1875.
This sum did not appear at the date of payment in any of the Requisitions or
Orders in Council signed by the Governor, but was paid by the Treasurer on the verbal
order of Mr. Armstrong, the Finance Minister.
The rule of the office was departed from and the amount ordered to be paid and
entered, as it appears, under "miscellaneous" items, without the usual order of the
Auditor in such cases.
Some portion of the amount is said to be included in a sum of two hundred and
fifty dollars in a Requisition No. 4, in the month of April, 1875, six months before the
payment was made, and the remainder out of a sum of one thousand dollars in Requisition No. 12, in the month of December, 1875, two months later.
The last Requisition is accompanied by a Memorandum, dated 21st January, and
approved by the Governor, 25th January, 1876.
William Fisher,
Chairman.
