State Treasurer Brian has suc
ceeded In caring for practically all of
the applicants for the Rale of bonds
to the state by the various school dis

money was plentiful nnd investments
hard to find for state funds , the
treasurer bought $800,000 of Douglas
county court house bonds. Shortly
thereafter the eastern markets
tightened up and the small towns of
the state began to issue bonds for
internal improvements. Then when
they applied to the state treasurer
for funds he could do nothing for
them and they could not place the
securities in the east. The Douglas
county bonds looked good to eastern
buyers , so Mr. Hrian took the case up
with those who had city securities
for sale , with the result that he has
now , with the assistance of the
various cities , placed practically all
of the Douglas county bonds In the
cast and has bought as an investment
for the state the bonds issued by the
school districts and the small towns.
