TREASURER WHEELER'S STATEMENT
Shewing the Standing of the Funds of the
County in His Hands.
About on schedule time the special
train of Burlington Bridge Superin
tendent Carteledge arrived in town
yesterday and in company with a num
ber of Plattsmouth people, Mr, Carte
ledge proceded to the newly proposed
stone quarry of Newell & Atwood, to
make an investigation of the surround
ings and as to the quality and quanti
ty of the stone to be found. Mr. Carte
ledge was not very enthusiastic over
the proposition after a slight exami
nation of the surface of the earth,
that is, there' ppearedto be too much
yellow or - it stone, but be agreed
with the other members of the party
that it might have been brought on
by the weather of many years, and de
cided to further investigate the mat
ter in the very near future, and that
they would send a high pressure
pumping apparatus here and thor
oughly wash the loose soil from the
surface, thus enabling them to deter
mine the value of the stone to be
This is not as encouraging as we had
hoped that the outcome of yesterday's
investigation would be. and later,
when a more thorough test is made,
the outlook may be changed consider
ably. County Treasurer's Statement.
Eelow the Journal takes pleasure in
presenting to its readers the statement
of the financial condition of Cass
county as taken from the records in
County Treasurer Wheeler's office:
Balance In General fund Sl!.54 a)
Balance In Itridjre fund. lJ.STO K)

Italance In Koad fund., -1..H3 13
Interest fund 5.5;2 hs
Permanent Koad fund irWjTl
Total on band ?117.."j07 47
The outstanding indebtedness is
5,000, with no outstanding warrants
against the county. This is one of the
best showings that has eminated from
the county treasurer's office in many
years, and we veiy much doubt if the
county, financially speaking, was ever
in a better condition.
