HON. MANOAH B. REESE.
I A NEGLECT OF DUTY.
lllow Governor Holeomb '.Scitlo.r .
AVilh state Tmiim-r Itartley.
The failure of Governor Holoomb to
tuako a proper settlement with fctate
Treasurer Bartley in 15, and the ac
ceptance of a worthless bond, whereby
the state lost half a million dollars, is a
matter of record that will not soon be
forgotten by the people of Nebraska.
That Holcomb was to blame for this
loss the record clearly shows, his own
baiting and confusod evidence given in
the bond trial being the lest proof.
The public mind needs only to lie re-
freshed. Holcomb wa elected gov- I
ernor in the fall of 1S94. Bartley had
served two years as treasurer and thera
was a suspicion that his accounts were
in bad shape. The governor-elect was
warned by Rosewater and others that
the treasurer was a defaulter and that a
very careful accounting should be hud.
to protect the state.
In spite of this warning, ar-ci iu spire
of the law, the new goyrnor
entered into a deal with i .irtlev
a long private consults t-oa Lo oceptei
a new bond upon which most of the
old and alreadv accountable bondsmen
qualified for fabulous sums. No nt
tempt was made to examine into thw
real worth of the lwnd.
One of the bondsmen was the presi
dent of a bank that held over $-200,000
of state niouev. The bank was not a
depository and the deposit was unlaw
ful. Governor Holoomb knew tliis and
yet he accepted this bank president as
a bondsman, qualifying in the sum of
$200,000 "over and above nil debts and
liabilities." The public knew then and
knows now that tho deposit was unlaw
ful, and that the boudsmau was not
worth anything like the sum mentioned.
The acceptance of the straw bond was
bad enough, but the worst part of the
deal was in the pretended settlement
with the treasurer. The transcript of
Holoomb's evidence in the Omaha trial
is the Vest proof, and it is accessible to
According to this testimony, Holcomb
first held a private consultation with
Bartley. and then they entered the
treasurer's office, where they remained
about two hours. The governor says he
looked over a ledger or some 6uch book in
which there were some accounts. He is
not sure what book or what accounts.
Then Bartley produced a cigar box
containing some slip of paper, repre
senting what should nave been about
$460,000 in cash. He also produced
some 850,000 in cash. 1 he law required.
It all to be iu cash, but, according to
Holcomb's testimony, "the law was a
farce and a sham." This testimony is
a matter of record.
The governor did not examine the
slips of paper closely. He admitted
that he aid not Know sure wnetuer
they were genuine. He knew that the
one bank which was not a legal deposi
tory was represented in tho cigar box by
a slip calling ror over f wu.ow.
The story of the "settlement" is best
told in the exact words of the record.
The case was heard at Omaha in Feb
ruary, 1898. Governor Holcomb was
on the 6tand, and the following extract
is from pages 617 to Oi'd of the record,

The man who gave this weak and
halting testimony who aewpted a
worthless bond who made an illegal
settlement with a defaulting official
who declared the law of the state to be
"a farce and a .sham," aud by his fail
ure to enforce it caused the state to lose
half a million dollars, is now a candi
date for a place on the supreme bench.
The people will not be deceived the
Fcond time. Tho record is open for
their investigation. They will decide
to place a jurist ou the bench. Tne
professional politician with the unsav
ory record will not le given further opportunity.

Judge M. B. Reese has been a resi
dent of Nebraska 'i'i years. He is a na
tive of Illinois, having been born in
Macoupin county in lsWd. He received
a common school education and being
desirous of further culture attended a
seminary for two yearj, paying his own
expenses. During that period he de
veloped the spirit of independence and
self-reliance characteristic of all men
who attain eminence. His father was
a farmer and the son followed the same
oiicupution until he was 24 years old.
Meanwhile Mr. Reese had married aud
settled down, but an accident occurred
which disabled his arm for life.
Mr. Reese then commenced the study
! of law. Shortlv after the breaking out
of the war he enlisted, but when he
came to undergo the physical examina
tion necessary, much to his chagrin, he
was rejected because of the injury re
ferred to. He then again applied him
self to the study of law and was admit
ted to practice in March, 1805. He
practiced in Osceola, la., until 1S71,
when he camo to Nebraska. He has
lived in Plattsmouth and Wahoo aud
now in Lincoln,
Judge Reese was elected a member of
the state constitutional convention in
lS73and assisted iu framing our pres
ent constitution. In the following year
he was chosen for state senator by the
Republicans of his district, but he de
clined the nomination. In the fall of
1S76 he was elected district attorney of
the then Fourth judicial district and
was re-elected in 1S78 and again in 1S85J,
practically without opposition.
In November, 18S2, Mr. Reese re
signed his position, lacking two months
of holding it six years. In th full of
1SS3 he was nominated for the position
of supreme judge and was elected, re
maining 011 the bench for six years.
About six years ago Judge Reese was
appointed dean of the law department
of the State University of Nebraska,
which position he still holds.
