The Matter of Pay for the Second]
Regiment Band is the Starting
Columbia, Jan. 28.-There is likely
to bo something interesting at the
meetus; of the national guard officers
here Thursday. Thia meeting is held
overy year for tho pur posa of ascer
taining what laws ac neended for the
building up ot the ftniUtla. But K is
not unlikely that something, else may
como before thc meeting as a result
of the rontrovcrsy" between tho gov
ernor and adjutant general.
It will be recalled that Oen. W. W.
Moore recommended, tho disbanding
o? certain companies' last, spring be
c?use they did not come up to'the
military requirements, and that thc
govornor refused to disband them and
that the war department sustained tho
adjutant general and refused to pay

At O ut a With the Goveruor
tween the governor and h\? c.his?
of < staff-alnee that time. Gen. Moore
dalma that he was entirely vindicated
and tho governor clalmB likewise, be
cause the war department gave the
companies another trial and some of
them came up to the requirements on
second inspection. Whether thia was
exactly fair to the other companfhs
was not considered, but it did save
a regiment to the state, and. this
means something.
Andersen Company
: The latest embrogllo ia o fer the psy
of the Second Regiment band. The
matter carno out in the court martial
of Capt. E. A.Legare, adjutant of the
Second regiment who had been ac
cused og getting a check from the
?war department and keeping the mon
ey for a year or such matter. Capt
A. C. Doyle, the regimental quarter
master, preferred '.he charges, for the
band had repeatedly asked him for the
money. It came out at'the investiga
tion that Capt Legare had finally
turned over tho amount of tue check,
something like $25, but that he is even
now withholding a check for $100 due
the band for 1918. Capt. Legare stated
on the examination that the band had
some missing property and that he
would not pay thom until the prop
erty: was'accounted for.
I Adjutant General ??uure called thin
matter to thc attention of tho gover
nor and the latter reproved the adiu
tant general in a characteristic letter
in wh)ch ho said that General Moore
had refused to pay some companies
for the very same reason that is now
advanced by' Capt. Legare. General
Moore replied tho?, the cases are en
tirly diffrrnt and', that ho waa acting
under the adrices of the war edpart
Thiu called forth another hot state
ment from the governor and Gen.
Moore replied UjtawlSe. Tho matter
has not been given to the papers hy
either side, but the question may
come Thursday at the meeting of the
National Guard.' The governor has
not stated ?whether be wllr raqui re the
aujutant, Capt. Legare, to turn over
the money /te the band.
In bis last "note,'' the governor In
formed thr ad rotant general that ne
V ou! dh a ve nothing further to do with
him, that Central Moore was Incom
petent, or words to that effect, and
