STATEDIN BRIEF Telegraphic Chronicle of State Happenings. 9 * CIVIL WAR VETS PROTEST Did Soldiers Barred From Opera House at Milwaukee —To Complain Against Their Removal to Leavenworth, Kan. Milwaukee, Aug. 10. —Locked doors to the opera house at the Soldiers’ home balked Civil war veterans when they gathered to hold a protest meet-_ ing against their removal to homes at Leavenworth, Kan.; Danville, 111., and Hampton, Va., on orders from Dayton. The veterans made no ef fort to “break in,” as reports had it they might, but sat around on the steps of the opera house, reading pa pers and waiting to see what would happen. They were plain in their re marks concerning the locking of the doors,* and laid the halting of their protest meeting to the officials at the iiome, who, they charged, feared to take any step which might be con strued as offending the board of man agers of the home at Dayton, O. A meeting will be held in spite, of the refusal of the authorities to use the opera house, several of the veterans declared, and the protest of the men will be put in res:>i ion form so that it can be forward m. to the President and other authorities. Responsibility for refusing the use of the structure to the veterans was not admitted by officers of the day, in the absence of Governor Crumpton. Spurred by mes sages of support from Senator Irvine L. Lenroot, who informed William J. Cary, county clerk that he had ap pealed to the War department to have the order of removal countermanded, many of the aged veterans clicked their heels and declared they would remain at their Milwaukee home until forcibly removed. The fight to pre vent execution of the order is ex pected to be carried to the floor of the senate. Eighty-five members of Eddie Lyons post, No. 5, of the Amer ican Legion, Monday night supported the protest of Civil war veterans at the Soldiers’ home against removal to another institution in a resolution to be sent to Senators Lenroot and La Collette.
