ardson in addition to a commandant,
and that "two men are being employ
ed to do what one could do." The
committee unanimously added (p.
"And In this connection we wish
to put the stamp of our disapproval
upon the practice of members of the
commission electing themselves to or
holding salaried positions."
If money Is to be saved, as It should
be, the positions to be abolished are
not that of commandant, but the posi
tion specially created for the cnair
iman at a salary of $100 a month. If
he and Dr. Butler admit that the
"present administrative policy is too
expensive, and Is not bringing the
most satisfactory results," as stated
in the communication handed to me,
they have resigned rrom the wrong
office and are abolishing the wrong
office. The* responsibility for the
failure must rest not with me but
with Maj. Richardson, who In his
testimony said (p. 20); "l run the
whole concern. 1 am In charge of
the whole business; everything comes
under my supervision."
The legislative committee found
that "there does not seem to he any
head to the institution" (p. 14). This
is because the chairman, Maj. Rich
ardson, took authority that did not
belong to him and interfered with
the commandant In the latter's du
ties without performing any sys
tematic duties himself. Maj. Rich
ardson in his testimony claims to
have done everything, and he thus
ignores the plain rules laid down by
the board March 11, 1912, which de
lines the commandant's duties as fol
"Second. Commandant, who will
act as caretaker, control the inmates,
attend to the policing of the grounds
and premises, look after and ear for
the property .nd stock, attend to
planting and trucking, report to and
act in conjunction with the chairman
and any other duties which the chair
man may see proper to define."
He also ignores the duties of the
matron, laid down In the said rules,
"Third. Matron, who will do the
purchasing for the home, employ the
servants, supervise the kitchen, din
ing room and all other domestic du
ties the chairman may see proper to
define anil at all times have the right
to call upon the commandant to co
operate with her In the discharge of
I may lie permitted to call to the
attention of the board that before1
Maj. Richardson had known that I
would tell the legislative committee
?in reply to its questions?that his
salary was a useless expense to the
State, he spoke very highly of me
In his testimony before the legislative
committee ( p. 20):
.'Q. . . .He Is commandant . . .
don't you think he is rather lax in
"A. Well, senator, 1 would say if
he errs at all It is in that line. He
is too kind-hearted. Not that he is
not a very determined, brave man
and as just a man as I ever saw in
In conclusion, 1 agree with the
board that the expenses of the home
ought to he cut by cutting out use
less salaries, and I hereby offer to
take charge of the infirmary at a
salary of $100 a month and do the J
work now done by treasurer, com- j
mandant. and imatron, costing now
$220 a month, and I will give bond
