In compliance with your request. I beg
to make this statement:
It fieinniitly occurs that the gover
nor is unexpectedly called out of the
city on matters iu connection with
statu institutions ami it would be im
possible to uo through the routine
necessary to proem o a ticketoaeh time
or trips of this nature. Tho late legis
lature provided 81,000 for tho travel
ing expenses of tho governor for tho
bbenniutn, as against an appropriation
for tho nso of liovernor Sheldon of
Sl.MiO, by the former legislature. In
order to purchase a ticket or mileage
from this appropriation, it is necessary
for tho governor to make out n vouch
or against the "traveling expense
fund," have the same audited by tho
stato auditor, approved by the secre
tary of state, and a warrant drawn
and delivered to tho railroad company,
which in the ordinary course of busi
ness requires from two to threo days'
time. To avoid this inconvenience
every time tho governor is required to
leave the capital, vouchors have been
issued by Coventor Shallonberger
against the 'traveling expense fund."

amount of Stint). This mileage is over
tho several railroads of the state, and
contains a provision that the railroad
companies will redeem any unused

of this SUtiO purchase it-eil, and the
total amount paid out by Oovornor
Shnllenbcrgcr during his term of oillce
for traveling expenses is $00.r.O. I'pon
this basis of tlio amount expended as
an estimate, the governor has .sttilleiont
mileage on hand at this time to cover
his term of oillce. 1!- way of compaii
son with tho expendttutes tor travel
ing espouses ot the former administra
tion, tlte i coords of this department
show that during tin administration
of Governor Sheldon, the amount ex-,
ponded each month of his term of of
lice was i.71. while the monthly
amount paid out for traveling expenses
by liovernor Sliallonborgor, during
the Ilrst live mouths of his term of
ollleo is SIS 'is-.
Tho statement that has appeared In
the press, that liovernor Shnllenbcrgcr
has spent 1100 for traveling expenses
during the five months ho has been in
oillce. would be equivalent to milking

she made was to the effect that the

cause men who profess to believe that
absolute piohlbltion is the best for
mankind do not vote that way because
it might alteet their pocket books.
This policy wns worse than criminal.
She indulged in no vituperation what
ever and her entire discourse was free
from any abuse Neither did she
show any disposition to rant but on
the contrary she showed herself to bo
a cultured refined1 lady desiring the
best for all people. Her manner of
