Attorney General Brlnus Suit Against
Governor, Secretary of State and
State Treasurer to Recover $16,518
In Prison Revolving Fund.
SALEM, Ore., Sept. 5. Suit was
iribtitutcd in tho Marion county cir
cuit court today by Attorney Gencr
nl Crawford against Governor West,
secretary of Stale Olcott and Stnto
Treasurer Kay to recover $10,518.83,
which is alleged in the complaint to
have been unlawfully expended out
of tho penitentiary "revolving fund"
by the defendants. The suit is tho
outcomo of a hitter fight, following
charges made by tho Portland Eve
ning lelegrnm thnt West had mis
appropriated something like .fl0,000.
Wcst several months ago passed the
matter up to Crawford, telling him
to proceed against himself or tho
Telegram, after an investigation.
Tlm suit indicates thnt Crawford
find the governor wns wrong nnd is
evening up political scores. Kny
and Olcott havo already attempted to
get from under by asserting thnt
they remonstrated with the gover
nor for making the expenditures and
finally passed a resolution Inst No
vcmber to cease the Illegal use of
the funds.
It is alleged In the complaint of
the attorney general thnt the sjicre
tnry of state drew warrants on the
state treasurer in he sum sued for
nt the request of the governor and
tho state treasurer honored the war
rants without sanction of Inw. The
board directed Kay to enter and cred
it in his books of account nil money
received from the sale of brick bv
officers of the penitentiary and all
moneys received ns rent, from the
prison foundry in the so-cnllcd re
volving fund.
Crawford charges that the money
so paid out was done so without leg
islative nuthnrity nnd that no ap
prupriation covering the same had
ever been made. West is chieflv
blamed in the complaint, it beim
charged that the claims were in
curred by his direction "pnrstinnt to
pretended authority."
Oovernor West said this afternoon
thnt tho board only followed tho prac
tlco of preceding boards, and that If
this board did not handle tho funds
properly then the preceding boards
aro In tho same fix and suits should
bo brought against thorn. This
would bring In as parties defendant
tho Chamberlain administration and
Chamberlain as governor, Dunbar as
secretary of state and Steel and
Mooro as state treasurers and also
Gatons as prlvato secretary of tho
Tbo Dowcrman administration
would also bo llablo with Dowerman
as governor, Iicnson secretary ot
state and "Pat" McArthur as gover
nor's prlvato secretary.
