A copy of a letter of explanation

made public In which be outlines his
Idra, which Is so strongly opposed. The
Adjutiint-deneral tells first of his oppo
sition to tlie State constabulary bill,
saying:
"My otdj objection to the proposition
was that the State could much better
supply the force by detailing the re
Uiilred number of men from the Na
tional r)unrtl. This could be done with
out ha-.-r.cks and facilities proposed for
the constabulary. Thh suggestion
seemed to be favorably re.T.trded, and t
was asked to draft an amendment to the
military law to accomplish tho pro
posed result."
He says that lie did so, and handed
the draft over to the chairman of the
Military Affairs Coiuinltt,... of the Senate
This measure authorized the (lovernor
to detail for service as State patrol any
part of the organized militia, Tlie cost
would be alHiut $100,000 a Jc.ir.
"My rotating the men on detail, that
i, returning a part of them to their or
ganization from time to time, und re
placing them with new men, we could In
a short time build up a large force of
men trained for this sort of duty, ade
quate for all purposes for which a
State constabulary could Im used, and at
