Eesultf of the Investigation at
the Nebraska City
FLAGRANT FEAUDS FOUND.
Details of Bom of the Worst Has
calitjr Yet Discovered in
Kael From tb Ksport.
It is still the style I" certain rcpubli
can and democratic circles to make
llulit of the legislative investigating
committee. In soma respect It nifty
seem that the finding of tlie committee
arc too severe, an for eiainpl In loldin
officials of state Institution personally
liable for money spent without author
it of law from tb cash fund of their
Institution. It must b remembered,
however, that the committee Is required
to take notice of thing an they find
them, that the expenditure of money
unlawfully, even though honestly ex
pendod tor the good of tb various in
stitutions, Is an abuse that ought to be
remedied and the quickest way to rem
edy it I to point it out emphatically.
There Is no occasion for argument
with those who are harping on the one
fiddle string of tlio ten thousand dollar
appropriated for the work of the com
roittee, An argument will not reach
their case. But no urnouot of harping
and do quantity of ridicule will obscure
the rank evidence of fraud found by
this committee In some of the slats af'
fairs. The facte will mak for them-
solve and ft Is part of the mission of the
Itiim'fLHDKtn to publish th fact and
let the intelligent people of Nebraska
draw their own conclusion. As th
latest sample of fact Circnrthfd by thin
committee,, wa take the evidence of
fraud found at the Institute for the
blind at Nebraska City, wbicli have
been carefully examined la the propora.
tion of this article.
The examination at Nebraska City
was made by 4. N. Wise, au expert ac
couotaut of i'latteinouth, and Senator
Mutz. The accountant finds in the first
place that the absence of ledgers, jour
nals and cash book for a groat part of
the period investigated and the cutting
out of 180 pages from one of the day
book remaining have made the work
difficult, I'p to the termination of the
term of I'rof. J, It, Cannula, on superin
tendent, which occurred Feb. 15, 1802,
it appear that the administration af
fairs bad been homstly administered,
although some of the exrsmditures were
not authorised by law. From that date
up to the coming in of the up
pointee of the present aI 111 111 lt ra
tify there are the most aetouuding reve
lation of rascality, which may be
grouped under .hea heads:
1 Fraudulent drug bill for the em.
nloye of the institution and citizen of
Nebraska City, charged and paid for by
2 Fraudulent charge for clothing
purchased for students, but paid for by
the students themselves.
.1 Implicate bill of the name cloth
ing charged and puid for by the state
4 Fraudulent charge for pemotm on
the pay roll who wore never paid the
money alleged to have I-md duo thorn
One ol the first things that Ht ruck the
investigator was tie extraordinary
spell of sickness that Mel the institu
tion uuder the supcrinlendency of I'rof.
Itakestraw mid I'rof. Kbright compared
with conditions now. Tim old vouchers
contained charge for hundreds of pre

Sometime there would be ten or llfteeu
prescriptions in a single day. Those
charges would be in the following form

Under the head of fraudulent pay rolls

Following this the committee found
