Summers of West Point , ex- supcrlntcnacnt of iho asylum nt Norfolk , is in Omaha. In conversation yesterday with a Bun reporter. Dr. Summers revealed quite an interesting chapter in the record of the State Board of Public Lands and Buildings. Dr. Summers did not talk like a man who has a grievance. The statements he made canto more In the form of n casual conversation than In the guise of a growl. - ' I see that the State Board of Public Lands and Buildings has been posing as a very much overworked body of men , " said the doctor at the outset. "It may bo true thai they worked very hard , " ho confiuupd , ' but they must have pul In a good deal of their time visiting other institutions than Iho asylum at Norfolk If that is the case , for during my rorm of thirteen months not a member of the board overset foot in the in. slilutinn. They did not oven write nny let ters of inquiry to loam how the institulion was getting on. I will say to their credit , however , that when I wrote lo Iho board about matlors'pertainlng to the instilution my letters wore always promptly answered. "Tun BEE claims that certain funds appro priated for pulling in a new boiler al iho asylum wore spent for olher purposes. lean easily explain that matter. When I took charge of the institution I found by the able assistance of Mr. Patterson , who ii recog nized ns ono of the very best engineers in the state , that the sUoll of the old boiler was perfectly good , although some of the Hues were worn out. We also discovered thai the high pressure boiler was in n similar condition. I scut to Sioux City for an experienced boiler maker and had him examine the old hollers. Ho said that for $185 he could make the old ones as good asinew. I found thai I could have the old boilers repaired and have money enough left out of the boiler fund to repair some of Iho floors , which were completely worn out , and provide some needed appa ratus for the laundry. Before turning a hand , however , I went to Lincoln , taking the engineer with mo , and laid Iho matter be fore the board. Mr. Hastings said they did not want to make a public record of the mai ler. Allen told mo to go ahead and carry out the plan I suggested with regard to re pairing the old boilers nnd they would see that iho bills were pa id.1" I did so , and in spending tlio money for repairs instead - stead of buying now boilers I was simply carrying oul Iho inslructlons of the board. I certainly was not guilty of misapplying the funds , for I laid the whole mutter before the board and waited for Instructions. I have no apology to make for the suggestion , either , for I believed then and I bollovo now that U was the best thing to do under the circumstances. The only thing I care to say In connection with that matter is that the board should not blame mo for the manner in which thai money was expended when Iho plan was approved by the board and I simply carried out instruc tions. "When I took charge of the asylum , after Governor Boyd had been declared a citizen and had again been restored to his rightful position as governor , Dr. Wilkinson , my pre decessor , had expended , between April 1 , IB'Jl , and February 15. 180-J. a little over $3,000 , leaving mo with less lhan $7,000 lo run the Institulion for nearly fourteen months. * I soon discovered thai I was likely to come oul wilh a deficiency and sot about planning to have money in some way , so that I could pull the Institution through on Iho money appropriated for the two years , $15- 000 , My engineer told mo that if wo could get Rock Springs coal Instead of Newcastle wo could save several hundred dollars. I asked him if ho could give substantial proof of Ihls statemenl. Ho showed that ho could got 30 per cent more service out of the Uock Springs coal than out of Iho Newcastle coal. I had him make u | statement of this and I wired Mr. Allen not to let the contrao ; for anymore moro coal until I could see him. I went to Lincoln a few days later and found that the board had lot the contrail for Newcastle slack Loal right in iho face of iho ovldenco that I had furnished. I told the board that if they would pivo mo Hock Springs slack in stead of Newcastle I could pull tlio Institu tion through on the appropriation , but I could not do It if they persisted in furnish ing mo with Newcastle coal. Instead of do ing as I suggested , they sent mo u lot of Newcastle lump nt (4.05 per ton in stead of slack at 1.85. It happened that I ran out of Newcastle coal ono tluio because the company having the contract had none on hand , I wired Mr. Allen ask ing him what I should do and ho answered mo , stating that 1 lian better purchase from some of the local dealers. I laid in a good supply of Hook Springs coal and saved over I.VW. Last January I told Mr. Allen that thcro was going to bo a deficiency in tlio entire appropriation , but if the board would permit mo to buy coal as 1 wanted to 1 could save several hundred dollars on the coal ac count and probably bring the institution out pretty nearly even. They agreed to let mo follow that plan nnd between January 1 and April 1 I saved $1,1)27. ) That is , I expended that much loss than would have been ex pended if iho board had persisted in purchas ing Newcastle coal. Now I would like to know what has been done wilh that monoy. "It might have been spent for coal , but I saved It in the way I have explained. In the statement of the expenditures I fall to find what has becomn of iho $1,037 , und Hint Is the thing I want the board to explain. It ought to bo accounted for in some way , and 1 ex poet to bo in Lincoln lu a fevr days and then I nin going to find out if the board can tell mo what bucaino of that money and why it has not boon accounted for. I requested the board nt ono time to Imvo BOIUO of the money shifted to the accounts that were running low. but the auditor would not do that. Ho suggested , that I go ahead and save all I could in the coal account. Now I want to hear some satisfactory statement of how tto money was finally gotten out of the coal account und where It went to.
