Gov. Dlx said last night that he had
been Informed by Attorney-General
Cniinody that the members of the com
mission could be held to account with
Gen. Sickles for the proper expendi
ture of the money appropriated to th
commission. Gen. Sickles has asked
until December 20 10 make a settle
ment, and the Attorney-General has
advised Comptroller Sohmer lo assent
to this.
Whatever tio view of the Attorney
General may be there are members of
r-ie commission who feel thnt the entire
responsibility ie,-is with (Jen, Sickle?,
"Attornev -General Carmody has ex

King last night, "hut we have been In
