Having failed to enlist tbo

peals to B. F. Dillingham to

appeal is concluded in tho Adver

and low lived buiroouery.
A Chicago dispatch says that
Admiral Miller is likoly to bo tho

appointmont will be bailed with

With a view to obtain a more

to Presidont Dolo this morning.
If was noted by tho Bulletin
that tho lottors wero addrosBod to

Kinney or any other gentleman
who might be in Washington?
Presidont Dolo "Yos."
Did thoso two lottors of tho
14th and 30th provent tho Ha

as did tho tologram of May 10th?
Presidont Dolo "Wc did fur
ther consider neutrality. After
tbo letters of April 1-1 and
30th, tho telegram of May 10th,
which was moro pronounced, was
prepared. I think tho telegram
was dated May 8th, and a letter to
tho samo offect tbo 10th."
Tho only commont wo have to
offer at this timo is that President
Dolo admits that tho declaration of
noutrality was considered by him
self and Cabinet up to tho timo of
sending tho final telegram.

Editor Bulletin: Concern
ing tho item for a new building
for the Insano Asylum, which is
stated in your iosuo of last Friday
to havo boen "lost in tho shuffle"
after its passage by tho Legisla
ture, permit mo to say that the
i'om never ovon passed either
House, and that tho statement
purported to have boon made by
tho Attorney Goneral that "An
item for a now main contral build
iug for the Asylum was inserted
in tho Appropriation Bill for $2G.
(00 and passod tbo joint com
mittee of botlf Honses and thon in
somo way became lost in tho final
revision of tho bill in tho groat
rush at tho end of tho season" is
Tho facts as shown by tho re
cord aro these: Kopreeontations
wero made to both branches of tbo
Legislature as io tho urgency of
moro accommodations at the
Asylum, and speoial committees
were appointed to visit tho placo
and mako recommendations. Tbo
enmmittoes went together and
agreed to mako similar roports.
On March 21st tho Senato Com
mittee reported in part:
"Tho Asylum has a capacity for
98 inmates. At present thoy have
10G inmates and tho number has
been stoadily increasing. In
order to mako room for thorn somo
of tbo guards havo boen obliged
to give up thoir rooms and sleep
iu town or somewhere off tho
place. Thero is a great noed for
new and properly constructed colls
for tho bad cases of insanity who
havo to bo confined soparatoly,
especially at night. Tho build
iugs are all of wood, and the prin
cipal buildiDg is becoming much
decayed iu parts. Your committoo,
alter consulting with the Board of
Hoalth in regard to tho matter,
recommend that tho Legislature
anuronriate $25,000 for a now
tiro-proof building to bo built of
conoreto with an iron roof. "We
also recommend that tho Legislu-
tnro appropriate Ss'-dbUO for tno
purchase and erection of an oleo
trio plant at tho Asylum. Wo
would also rooomraond that an
additional amount bo appropriated
for tho 'maintenance of tho Asy
lum' and that it bo increasod to
S33.GU00. It will bo necessary to
inuko somo changes on tho prom
ises, euch as fencing, otc., that
(will requiro this incroaso."
Thi- report was Bigned by Sen
ators Baldwin, Wright and llice,
and it was acted on March 31,
wbon on motion of Senator Bald
win tho item for tho maintenanco
of tho Asylum was raised from
$20,000 to 833,000 as suggosted by
tho' Committeo. On tho samo day,
also on motion of Senator Bald
win, a new item was insorted in
the bill and passed for S2G00 for
tho oleotrio light plant. A long
discussion then onsuod on tho
subject of tho $25,000 item for tho
proposod main building, but no
motion was mado to insert tho
item in tho main appropriation
bill as it Bbomcd to be tho unaui
mous opinion of tho Sonato that
as tho item was for a now porma
nont improvement it properly be
longed iu tho Loan Bill, which at
tho time tho Government had not
I havo searohod tho records
carefully this morning and can
find no mention of tho item again
during tho session and it doOB not
appear in either tho Houao amend
ments to tho main appropriation
bill or tho loan bill. 1 am firmly
convinced that both Houses fully
intended to pass tho item in tho
loan bill and that it wa9 forgotten
entirely and not in tho rush at tho
ond of tho session.
In justice to tho Revision Com
mittee of tho Senato, on whom
bouio blnmo for carelessness may
bo attributed if tbo facts aro not
mado known I ask you to givo
this explanation the samo publici
ty us you did tho former ono on
tbo enmo matter.
