, Generul Miller’s accounts show large
amount: for meel: and lodging furnished
varioee persons. at generally .1 per meal.
without. designating the persons, so as to
ascertain whether they were entitled to
them at the public expense. He also re
ported ior pay, in addition to their military
pay, the members of Captain Shead’a com
pany, for their sen-ices as wagon masters,
&c., before noticed. llis abetruc's show,
also, quite e number of permue reported
for pay for their services as “enlisted re

eiated beside. not. on any of the puy rolls,
hut are in addition to the men borne there
on. It is not. understood what this means,
nnlut it be that these are men who had
agreed to urve u voluuteers, but were
never received into service, or belonged to
any military orgen' tion. He reports
bills for the lodging? rim! of the volun
teere. at 810 per month. With respect to
the property purchased and received, it. is
not properly accounted for, being turned
over to employet, to Governor Stevem,
«$20., 626., with few exceptions. Clothing,
lloar, kta, is credited upon many of the
bill: of employee in part payment of Meir
nocounll, whether in all cases at the same
rate: as purchased, it is impossible to say
in the time allowed for this exerninntlon,
but the contrery iynlieved generally to be
the fact. Most e ‘lhe receipts for proper
ty turned over ere copies, and some of
them are not signed at all, being mere
memorendurns. Some of the property he
reports an still on hand. ’

His prices are pretty much the same as
those of Quartermaster General Miller.—
lle, too, employed a large number of em
ployés in various capacities, at about the
same rate. A large quantity of property
came into his hands, and there are volumin
ous returns and papers in which he attempts
to show its application to the public ser
vice. Among those papers professing to
be vouchers there is scarcely an original
paper, or, with here and there an exception,
being only copies, and some simply memo—
rundnms without signatures. Quantities of
beef, both fresh and salt, pork, bacon, flour,
sugar, cofl'ee, rice, candles, vinegar, Ball,
beans, potatoes, molasses, and soap, are
gotten rid of by him by {kind of barter,
at fixed rates for board, goods, labor, and
some as rations for the haves ol employés,
’who were charging for their services from
M to $6 per day, and to discharged volun
teers. Considerable quantities of clothing
and other goods are disposed of by certified
issue to Indians, and to the Indian depart
ment, thus confuscdly blending together the
two branches of the Indian and military

The prices which his vouchers represent
him to have nge‘ed to pay for his purchases
are shoot the some as the two precedingl
quurtermnsters at Olympia; pork and lmconl
rather higher, horseshoeing 6 instead of 8‘
dollars each, and labor generally, if nay
thing, a trifle lower and better vouched——
His seeonutn, however, have about them
just as strong evidence of confusion and ir
regularity as the others, his purchases and
disbursements belng all mixed up together.
His property returns are exceedingly nnsat
iufsetory. They are very voluminous, show
ing scarcely anything but an unnecessary
waste of clerical labor and stationery in
their preparation, and do not show sproper
application of the property which came into
his hands to the public service. He admits
to have received a large quantity of subsist—
ence stores, of the two articles of coflec Ind
salt more than snllieient to have rationed
all the volunteers of the Territory during
their whole )eriod of service, And he dis
poses of by liar the greatest portion of all
he received, like Quartermaster Weed, by
issue: to employees, to “ families of persons
ordered in from their claims by Governor
Stu-ens," end to “families of men in the
service of the government,” by sales at one
tion, and by ism to the quartennester and
to individuals not qusrtermasters or com
minsuriss, and perticularly to one William
P. Wells, vvho styles himself, in one place,
‘9 “ qusrturnmter’u clerk," and in another,
as commisesry st Camp Montgomery. To
this individual he claims to have issued, in
bulk, of leading articles: 48 barrels of pork,
8 barrels of beef, 169 barrels of flour, 1!),-
139 pounds of bacon, 296 pounds of wise,
6,600 pounds of sugar. 88% pound: of rice,
and 2,475 ponudsol' soup ; of clothing, 264
pair of blankets, et 9 dollnrs; 410 cents, et
from 18 to 25 dollars ; 510 pair pants, at '1
dollars; 335 shirts, at 3 dollar: ; 275 pair
boots, at 5 dollars, and 343 pair shoes, at
82 fill—which cannot be discovered were!
