Train Demands a Full Legal Investi
S. S. Train, oue of tho memboM o! the
Board of Trusteos of tho Soldiera' Home,
has this lo say concerning the rt-port of
tho legislative committee sent to iuvesti
gato tho Home:
Siuco during tho last days of tho ses
sion of tho legislature, a most infamous,
outrageous, garbled and uutruthlul re
port from tho committee sent to investi
gate tho homo, rellecting not only upon
tho management, but also upon tho ier-
sonal characters of the trustees, was
inado to tho legislature and adopted, it
remains that in simple self defence, and
a3 a plea for it truer, nobler and breader
support of tho Homo, aud tho removal ol
tho solfiah, itnscrii pnlous and ernicious
seeking after place which is tho founda
tion of this report, as can bo scon by tho
fact that Senator I B. Alloy, chairman
of tho committee, and clork of tho com
mittee, S. B. Ormsby, ou tho strength
nf tins rormrt. of which thuv alone were
tha authors part of tho committee refus
ing to sanction or sign the infamous doc
ument were immediately appointed
and confirmed trustees for four years.
It is also understood that S. B. Ormsby
expects to bo commandant of tho Homo,
which accounts for tho accusations
against, aud requests for tho rumoval of
tho present commandant.
Tho main charge of this committee
against myself is that in addition to ex
penses, a charge of fj.OO per diem has
been made, aud that I Ii lve drawu fJOJ
a veir as eecrotarv. The law itself pro
vides' for n secretary. I lit salary to bo
fixed bv tho board. The board fixed
this at $'200. which is Mirely a modist
sum, and does not savor ol a steal.
This 'committee, or no oue else, can say
tho work of secretary has not been well
done. As to tha other chaws the rec
ords will show the information ot the
committee to have been ither inc:
reel or falsified, as the vouchers in the
state's olficu will show that mi charge
io.00 per diem was made, nor in !eed
could it bo uuder the law. and no vr
diem, or fees of any kind, beyond actual
expenses were allowed.
The lotal amount I have receive!
from the state during the two years
h.ivu served un the bjjril. is &D1.-I0. "
which f20J ii for salary as secretary
$7.50 for postage and stationary, anil Ihe
icmainder for actual expenses incurred
in attending the meetings and trail
acting the business of Ihe board. Thcs
facts are pulutauliated by the records in
the ollice of the tecretary of sdatc.
This wonderful report clo-ws iili the
rcccommeadaliou that "'Bint bii lroiuht
by the proper officer to compel tit
trustees to return the amount ilhsrilly
held by them."
The report including the rec ommeu
dation was adopted by the legislature.
and now as a membei of the old board,
I demand that such suit be luon?ht in
order that a full legal investigation tuny
bl had, aud that the truth or f.d:ity of
these charges may 1 officially determined.

hhn when a youth of eight or ten years
old. This man was Jacob P. Cox, now a
resident of East Umpqu.i, and the father-in-law
of Dr. Strango of I.'osehuiy. We

years, and we were greatly astonished,
when we learned we had lived neighbors -from
1S3S to 1S45 in Platte county,
Missouri. His father and grandfather
lived on almost adjoining farms w ith us
for seven or eight years, and it wai a
matter of congratulation to ns that we
did thus meet after a seperation of fifty
years, and recur to reminiscences of our
boyhood days. Thus you see a news
