A total of
U P. Elliott's acct...
. L. P. Elliott, Mr. Kelsay's repre
sentative, has been paid by the Com
mission, but not charged to Mr. Kel
This Includes a salary of $200.00
per month, board, railroad fare and
rent for transit.
You will see by the contract that
Mr. Kelsay was to furnish a compe
tent Engineer during his absence. Mr.
Elliott is all right, a good man, but
the commission has paid him. not Mr.
Kelsay. Mr. Elliott has been time
keeper for the Commission and I think
the Commission should stand a part of
his salary, but not at the rat of t
per das where they could hire a good
foreman at home for $3.
In regard to Mr. Kelsay's contract
you will easily see that he was to re
ceive for his total services 4 per cent
of the cost of the proposed water sys
tem. .Now we have In round num
bers Two Hundred Thousand Dollars,
iind 4 per cent of same would equal
eight thousand dollars, what the con
tract calls for when the work Is com
pleted, but It is scarcely started and
Mr. Kelsey is presenting a bill ol
$400.00 a month. Now if Mr. Kelsey
receives twelve of these monthly pay
ments It would equal $4,900.00 more
and with the same rate of the other
expense bills which the Commission
has been paying for him, his account
nt the completion of the work would
be nearer $20,000 than $8,009.
Ever since I have been on the Com
mission I have demanded a final un
derstanding with Mr. Kelsay and that
a strict account be kept with him but
there, in no such account kept, and
there is no other written contract with
Mr. Kelsay and nothing to show
whether he Is to draw $400 per month
and his representative $200 and pay
all other expenses, regardless of their
nature. To explain why I say re
gardless of their nature, I submit the
following bill rendered by Mr. Kel
say, Sept. 8. 1910:

1 , $201.45
In conclusion: Mr. Kelsay has re
ceived a commission on two abandon
ed lines to the North Fork and Thorn
Hollow, and a commission on the line
from Thorn Hollow to Pendleton, and
is still claiming a commission, and
there is no contract to show just what
he should have or whether he Is en
titled to anything or not This Is all
I have demanded of the Commission,
and that all bins against the said wa
ter sjstem should be Itemized and the
books kept so that at any time any
competent book keeper could check
up any account with the system in a
business manner, but it has not been
I done except with the private indi
viduals who pay their water rent.
Now I will leave It to the public to
Judge whether I, as a member of the
Commission, have a right to demand a
public accounting or not.
In submitting the above report 1
hrtve confined my remarks to Mr.
Kelsay's account and not spoken of
'the poor old bones (I mean the team
bought by Mr. Moore to work on the
'gravity system and paid $175). Well
they are between 12 and IS years old
land together weight about 2100 lbs.
and worth about $75.00, a good large
team for heavy work. If Mr. Moore
will take the old set of harness that
he patched up and sold the commis
sion for $35. the price of a new set,
and nut them on those nnl.ini&l
I bones and drive them through the
75 Main street of Pendleton I will give
Mayor Matlock $25 to give him an

to and from Thorn Hollow. Mr.
Moore will probably explain the num.
