big, stolen warrant is the one (and
probably the only one) exception to
this rule: Why? Is it a groundless
reflection to say that the whole trans
action has ear-marks which show that
both banks were suspicious that there
was something wrong about the sale
of the warrant? i
yA banker out in Harlan county some
years ago borrowed some county funds
money which" he knew was county
funds without having, under the de
pository law, a legal right to receive it.
Both the banker who borrowed it and
the county treasurer who loaned it, as
far as can be ascertained, were men of
good reputation and standing in the
community in which they resided. Un
fortunately for them this simple little
transaction of loaning and borrowing
was In contravention of section 124 of
our criminal code. The banker and
the county treasurer were Doth sent
to the penitentiary. It must be con
fessed that our supreme court has at
different times in the past placed a
little different construction on the legal
effect of a bank deposit. The case of
State ex rel First National Bank vs.
Bartley, 39 Neb. 353, declares a de
posit of state funds to be a loan; the
case of State vs. Hill. 47 Neb. 456, de
clares that the term 'loan' has no ap
plication to the deposit of state funds
in a bank while in the case in re State
Treasurer's settlement, 51 Neb. 117,
the holding is that a deposit in a legal
ly constituted depository is in sub
stance and legal effect a loan. Un
doubtedly the rule is, as regards a gen
eral deposit, that the depositor be
comes the creditor of the person re
ceiving the. deposit.
Mr. Millard, as president of the bank,
borrowed this state money from the
state treasurer money which he knew
should be deposited in a regularly des
ignated depository bank. The state
treasurer is now in the penitentiary,
and Mr, Millard is in the United States
senate. Is it a groundless reflection to
say that no criminal prosecution was
ever brought against Mr. Millard and
that, under the . statute of limitations,
it is now too late to do so? It requires
higher powers of discrimination lian
are possessed by the average mortal
to see any material difference between
the acts of Banker Mills and those of
Banker Millard in the two transactions
mentioned. The parallel is not com
plete, because Mills was prosecuted.

The the state treasurer. Hill. had.
aa there is good reaaca to believe (al
though tbe fact has not been clearly
proven), shortly prior to the Capital
National hank failure, about $180,000
of trust funds deposited in that bank.
He was disobeying the depository law
with reference to his curent funds at
that time, and not a dollar of state
fund were deposited in depository
banks. The officials of the bank knew
that a crash wa coming. If the bank
failed. Treasurer Hill and his bond
would be responsible for the trust
funds lost in the crash. So an at
tempted and pretended depository bond
wa fixed up, containing the largest
possible amount of "straw;" it was
cot. In fact, a bond at all, viewed In a
Governor Crounse, who then occupied
the executive chair, approved tne pre
tended bond of the Capital National
bank a a state depository and Treas
urer Hill pretended to deposit in that
bank about fiSO.000 of sinking funds.
Beyond a doubt no deposit of such
funds was ever made, out the bank
simply transferred .the trust funds it
was holding for Treasurer Hill to the
sinking fund account and pretended
that it had received a deposit of sink
ing funds. In any event, not long af
ter, the bank failed and the state lost
llbO.000 of It money, supposed to be
sinking funds. -
Litigation grew out of these trans
actions, but it is cot necessary at this
time to go into details regarding it,
further than to say that it was not
determined at the time the republican
legislature of 1895 convened. Here
wa a chance to do some smooth work
under cover of doing what appeared
on the surface to be a proper act. . Al
though the J 180.000 had been lost In
the Capital National bank failure, yet
the state up to that time denied that it
had lost anything; if any state money
had been lost the state treasurer had
lost it, and he wa responsible. No
proper depository bond having been
given by the Capital National bank.
the treasurer could cot fall back on
that a a defense. The mcney was not
ia fact lost la a state depository, be
cause the Capital National bank had
never complied with the law and was
cot a duly authorized state depository.
Accordingly, several smooth republi
can lawyers lobbied through an amend
ment to one of the appropriation bills,
appropriating enough money to cover
the amount lost In the Capital Na
tional Bank failure. The appropria
tion waa for $180,101.75 out of the gen
eral fund to "reimburse the state sink
ing fund for money "tied up in the
Capital National bank." Here was an
official recognition that the state had
lost some money; hence Treasurer Hill
wa guiltless. And the supreme court
record show that this appropriation
was the key that released him from re
sponsibility. Trere waa no cession to reimburse
the sinking fund, even if the state was
compelled to lose the I1S0.000. The
state bond would cot be due for over
two years and there was ample left in
the sinking fund to keep the interest
paid op. Under Treasurer . Meserve's
regime all the 'state bon is were paid
off and a surplus left to bn turned back
Into the general fund yet not a dollar
of that $180,000 appropriation ever paid
any interest or principal on state
Hardly was the ink dry on the gov
ernor's signature to the appropriation
bill which contained this $180,000 item
when Treasurer Bartley had a voucher
made out in his individual name as
claimant of the $180,000; the deputy
secretary of state approved it, and
Deputy Auditor Hedlund audited it and
drew the warrant. Then Bartley hied
himself to Omaha to sell it. There was
no necessity of drawing a warrant to
make this transfer from the general
fund to the sinking fund, or, if a war
rant were drawn, it should have been
Immediately registered in the name of
the sinking fund and held in trust by
the treasurer until it should be called
for payment, at which time both inter
est and principal should have iseen
taken from the general fund to swell
the sinking fund. -But Bartley wanted
to sell the warrant. He had ideas. It
wasn't such a warrant as could be
bounght by any little warrant broker
or bank and he had to go to a big
bank. This he did.
Now, the World-Herald may not
have overdrawn Its picture of Senator
Millard. Again, it may. He doubtless
has a great many friends over the
state. He doubtless has a good repu
tation, aside from the questionable
dealings in this particular transac
tion. But there are several things
about this warrant transaction which
do not throw any large-sized halo
about his head.
' The warrant was drawn in the name
of J. S. Bartley. That was all. Not
Bartley, treasurer, but plain Bartley.
If 'issued at all It ought not to have
been drawn In his name, but simply to
"sinking fund." That is another evi
dence of republican incompetency or

a passing glance. The warrant reads

would be to inquire what service Bart

such a large sum. Further reading of
the warant Itself showed that it did
not belong to Bartley personally; and
the court has held that Mr. Millard
was charged with notice that it was
state funds. It is quite likely that he
had no suspicion that Bartley had
made up his mind to steal the whole
amount; but after the sale had been
negotiated with the New York bank,
and Bartley had deposited tbe amount
of face and premium In Mr. Millard's
bank to Bartley's personal account, Mr
Millard knew that he was assisting
Bartley to violate the state depository
law and was aiding Bartley to defraud
the state out of its rightful Interest
on the amount deposited. He certain

As 'to the circumstances surround
Ing the sale of the warant, the populist
plank errs technically regarding the
"indorsement." As this word is tech
nically understood, it would mean that
Mr. Millard signed his name as in-
i dorsee on the back of the warrant.
This he did not do. On the back of
the warrant is Mr. Millard's name writ
ten by somebody else and In light pen
cil. That is all, save for Bartley's own
signature in Ink. And that is the dark
feature of the whole transaction. Or
dinarlly, and in perhaps every other
case except this, when the payee of a
warrant sells it to a bank, he indorses;
then if the bank transfers to another
bank, it indorses, usually with rubber
stamp as is customary with nearly all
banks; the final purchaser has the war
rant registered, if that has not been
done before, and holds it until called
for payment. Then the custom Is for
the bank holding the warrant, if an
eastern bank, to make a rubber stamp
indorsement to some bank in Omaha
or Lincoln and send to that bank for
collection; the receiving bank also
stamps, its indorsement and presents to
the state treasurer, who pays the war
rant and retains it on file in his office.
But this big, stolen warrant is an ex
ception to the almost Invariable rule.
There is nothing on its back to Indi
cate that any other person than J. S.
Bartley ever had It in his possession,
so far as legal indorsements go. The
lightly pencilled name of J. H. Millard
on the warrant's back was the only
clue which finally brought the whole
transaction to light. Mr. Millard, when
confronted with the facts, told the
whole story and he is to be compli
mented for his frankness, at least.
Why , did the Omaha National bank
and the New York bank so carefully
avoid indorsing the warrant? Take a
look at the cancelled warrants in the
state treasury. You will find, thou
sands of them with their backs literal
ly covered with bank stamp indorse
ments; warrants which were sold by
the payees, passed from one bank to
another in the course of business, per
haps were registered and -held by a
bank; later, when called for payment,
rubber stamped and forwarded for col
lection through one or more other
banks to the state treasurer. This

Dear Chesslsts: I have been chosen
to manage a game of political chess,
having been selected by the people s in
dependent party of Nebraska as chair
man of the .state central committee.
In playing this sort of chess, exhibi
tions simultaneous or sans voir are ex
tremely difficult and should not be at
tempted. Hence, I am obliged to ask
the indulgence of my friends who play
the truly scientific and more enjoy
able game of Phllidor and Morphy,
Lasker and Pillsbury, until about tne
middle of November. It is barely pos
sible that part of the time I may have
opportunity to wield a pair of 18-inch
scissors and give my readers a glimpse
of what is appearing in my chess ex
changes; but, to be on the safe side, let
us declare a "lock-out" in tnis depart
ment until after election.
En passant, Judge S. H. Sedgwick, a
valued member of the Nebraska chess
association, is the republican candi
date for judge of the supreme court
and for once in the history of the as
sociation, two members are obliged to
work at cross purposes.

BRITISH ; CHESS MAGAZINE.
A file of this excellent magazine
reached me the other day. The editor
advises me that a U. S. $2 note enclosed
In a letter addressed "The Editor, Brit

Of course I can't agree with the F.

am free to confess it is doing a great
work for him in the way of advertis
ing his books, for people will buy the
books most mercilessly attacked by the
I was a little amused at the resent
ment shown by the B. C. M. because
Mr. Young' lays down the proposition
that all of the pieces are of equal
strength; and its assertion that Mr. Y.
"appears to have no clear idea of It at
all either in chess or war or . mathe
matics." Now, mobility Is one thing
and the power to kill is quite another.
The queen's mobility is vastly greater
than that of a pawn; but the meanest
pawn., when he gets. near enough, can
slay an adverse piece with the same
ease as does the queen. Young's mili
tary training makes him a stickler for
exactness In expression, and.it seems
to me he has not failed here.
But the B. C. M. deserves the sup
