In an early test for ethics reform, House Democrats yesterday selected Rep. Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland as the next majority leader, rejecting a bid by Rep. John P. Murtha, the longest-serving House member from Pennsylvania. The vote was a rebuke for Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, the speaker-elect, who put her prestige on the line by backing Murtha for the No. 2 post in the House when Democrats take over in January. But it wasn't even close. Hoyer, the most prodigious political fund-raiser among House Democrats, had cultivated many of his Democratic colleagues by pouring money into their campaign accounts.

The city Health Department has moved to dismiss a veteran assistant medical examiner after an investigation into complaints that he fondled a female corpse during an autopsy in November. A department spokesman confirmed yesterday that it had suspended Dr. Paul Hoyer with intent to terminate him from his $107,000-a-year job. Hoyer was suspended without pay on Thursday, and has until Friday to appeal, the spokesman said. Hoyer, 50, a pathologist at the medical examiner's office since 1981, was transferred to other duties in the Health Department after a written complaint about his actions was received five days after a Nov. 10 autopsy.

WASHINGTON - House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer tiptoed into dangerous political territory Tuesday, suggesting that to cut the government's record budget deficits dramatically, popular middle-class tax reductions set to expire at year's end could be extended only temporarily. Hoyer (D., Md.) also suggested that future Social Security benefits may have to be trimmed to contain the national debt. Those calls from the House's No. 2 Democrat, at a Washington budget conference, were seen as an important political step as well as a legislative trial balloon.

Philadelphia police Officer Daniel Gleason was killed instantly by one of the two bullets that pierced his brain and would have been unable to draw his revolver after he was shot in his left arm, a pathologist testified yesterday. Assistant Medical Examiner Paul Hoyer, who determined that Gleason died of gunshots fired at close range to his head, neck and arms, offered his testimony during the third day of the trial of Nathan Long, 39. The officer was shot to death June 5 when he and his partner, Officer Laurine Venable, went to the 1300 block of West Sedgley Avenue in the city's Hunting Park section to investigate a report of a dispute involving neighborhood residents and prostitutes.

You might call it the Democrats' Capitalist Appreciation and Congressional Humility Tour - almost. U.S. Rep. Steny Hoyer (D., Md. ), the second-ranking leader of what's now the minority party in the House of Representatives, joined local Reps. Chaka Fattah and Allyson Schwartz, both Philadelphia Democrats, to meet with 20 factory owners Wednesday at Center City's Kleinbard, Bell & Brecker L.L.P. law firm. The Washington delegation came to hear business complaints, promote probusiness aspects of their own agenda, and try to mend fences.

The best free agents were signed in April and July, and there is a veritable lack of star power in baseball's open market. Yet as 30 general managers convene in California this week, there will be talk of big numbers. The payouts from TV contracts are larger than ever. Fewer free agents will cost draft picks as compensation. There are new caps on amateur and international spending. It could yield a booming free-agent market and one that moves quickly. That is the dilemma Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. could face when he earnestly applies his winter strategy at this week's GM meetings, which run Wednesday to Friday in Indian Wells, Calif.

Seeking to regroup after big Election Day losses, Democrats in the House of Representatives appeared poised yesterday to select a California liberal - Rep. Nancy Pelosi - as their new leader. If elected by her peers Thursday, Pelosi would be the first woman to head either party in Congress. Now the second-ranking Democrat in the House, Pelosi emerged as the likely victor in the race for minority leader after her closest competitor, centrist Rep. Martin Frost of Texas, dropped out yesterday afternoon.

How do pros invest for their personal portfolios? A series of local financial planners have agreed to "open the kimono. " Up first: Dave Hoyer, registered investment adviser with Prometheus Capital in Yardley. Often, professional money managers invest differently for clients than they do personally (for what reason, we are mystified). But in Hoyer's case, he's proud to eat his own cooking. "I own what I also buy and sell for my clients," says Hoyer. He and his wife, both 66, have retirement accounts, will draw pensions, and applied for and suspended Social Security benefits.

As usual, Jeff Hoyer had to be patient in the early going and see how he was going to fit into Schalick's offense. First, Hoyer figured out the type of defense Florence was using against standout Paul Gause. Then, as the senior has done in the past, he keenly reacted to the openings that were presented to him. Hoyer, a 5-foot-11 guard, scored nine of his 17 points in the third quarter and helped the Cougars breeze past the Flashes, 72-55, last night in an NJSIAA Group 1 state semifinal at Cherry Hill East High.

Amy Hoyer loves the game of soccer and it shows in her play, but the senior midfielder from Northern Burlington admits to being a little fatigued this time of year. That's because in addition to high school soccer, which is usually a six-day-a-week commitment, Hoyer also works out with her club team, the Medford Strikers Scream. There isn't a heavy girls' club soccer schedule in the fall, but the teams do work out, some a few times a week. That's because this weekend, one of the biggest girls' club soccer tournaments in the country is taking place.
