EXPLODED A BOMB
ON RESIDENCE TOUCH
The food and dairy committee of
the house ,and a committee of the
senate, to which was referred the
special message of Governor West,
asking for an investigation of the
management of the office of Food
and Dairy Commissioner Bailey has
begun Its labors this morning at the
state house. Summons were sent
out yesterday to the commissioner
and his deputies to be present and
testify, and when the investigation
commenced this morning, they were
all In attendance. Bailey is repre
sented by Attorney, White, of Port
land, and was the first witness to
take the stand.
The charges against Bailey are in
competency, and having padded his
expense account, and used the funds
to purchase articles for his home
and In payment of other expenses not
of a public nature. Strator Chase
acted as chairman of the committee,
and started the Investigation by air
ing a ser!e3 of questions, which had
been reduced to writing, but by
whom It seems Is uncertain. Thn nrsl
questions were along a lino which
would determine whether Bailey was
competent. They referred lo the ss.
tern used in keeping a record of In
spections made ,of money collected,
and reports submitted upon vavio-is
matters. The commissioner admitted
that the reports which formed a
basis for his public reports that Is
those submitted to the governor
had mostly been lost, but that it
had occurred without his conKenf.
He also admitted that the score
card system now in vogue in his of
fice had been introduced by him, but
claimed it was good, and that as
soon as its use was suggested that he
adopted It. After a number of other
questions along this line the com
mittee turned Its attention to the
second charge that of Bailey having
used the state's money for his own
He admitted that he had bought a
horse and buggy, but maintained that
It was bought with Ms own money,
and, while the state had paid for the
keaplng of two horses, that it had
their services for nothing. He de
nied that he had charged the expense
of his trips to his farm at Eugene to
the state, and offered to present doc
uments to prove the statements. He
had not, he said, kept a record of
the Inspections made of the various
dairies in the state.
Th's afternoon his deputies will
be examined. There is also in at
tendance a delagation of .women
representing the Consumers' League,
of Portland, and when the proper
time comes they will give testimony
along certain lines. The investiga
tion will consume all of thp afternoon.
Last evening about 8:15 p. m., are
port as loud as that of a shotgun was
heard at the corner of Union and High
streets, that aroused some of the
neighbors. This being Chinese New
Years, the report of a firecracker
would not have raised one, but this
report was immediately telephoned to ;
the police station, and in less than 10
minutes an officer was on the scene
and It was discovered that a large
Chinese bomb was thrown on the
front porch of one of the corner
houses. The fact of the patrolman
finding the trouble so quickly speaks
well of the efficiency of our present
police force and undoubtedly is very
comforting to the citizens of Salem.
