THE STATE TItEASURY.
Tlic iMTestiffatlon Shows a
"Suite of Affair."
The most exciting topic of State
interest during the past week has
been the investigation into the af
fairs of the State treasury, and the
facts developed are not creditable to
the integrity of the late treasurer,
J. C. McBride.
It has been his custom to deposit
funds of the State with bank?, among
which have been ; the First National
of Lincoln ; L. R. Moore of Jvear-
ney ; Marsh Bros.', Mosher & Co., of
Lincoln ; First National of Brown-rillp-
navmnnd Bros. So Yeazol of

Hastings: Farmers' National ofS
Pawnee City; Caldwell, Hamilton
& Co., Omaha; First National of
Plattsmouth ; Sumner & Co., Schuy
ler, &c, &c, our Columbus Bank
is not included in the list.
Senator Birkhauser'6 resolution to
investigate has brought some of the
facts to the surface, and will doubt
less reveal the true inwardness of
treasury matters. As the law touch
ing the subject applies equally to
other officials, we quote it here at
length, as found on page 749 of the
Revised Statutes, chapter XVI, title
"Embezzlements and Frauds."
"Section 124. If any officer or other
person charged with the collection, re
ceipt, safe-keeping, transfer, or disburse
meiit of the public money, or any part
thereof, belonging to the State, or to any
eounty or precinct, organized city or
village, or school district in this State,
shall comert to his own use, or to the
use of any other person or persons,
body-corporate, association or party
whatever or shall us by way of invest
ment in any kind of security, stock, loan,
property, land, or merchandise, or in
any other manner or form whatever, or
shall loan with or without interest, to
any company, corporation, association,
or individual, any portion of the public
money or any other funds, property,
bonds, securities, assets, or effects of
any kind, received, controlled, or held
by him, for safe keeping, transfer or
disbursement, or in any other way or
manner, or for any other purpose; 6r If
any person shall "advise, aid, or in any
manner participate in such act, every
such act shall be deemed and held in
law to be an embezzlement of so much
of the said moneys or other property, as
aforesaid, as shall be thus converted,
ucd, invested, loaned, or paid out, as
aforesaid; which is hereby declared to
be a high crime, and such officers, or
person or persons shall be imprisoned
in the l'enitentiary, not less than one
year more than twenty-one years, ac
cording to the magnitude of the embez
zlement, and also pay a fine equal to
double the amount of money or property
so embezzled as aforesaid," Ac.
So far as the matter under con
sideration is concerned, the decision
of the Supreme Court has settled
the duty of custodians of the public
Attorney General Dil worth, to
whom the subject was referred, cites
the General Assembly to the opin
ion of the Supreme Court, as written
by Chief Justice Cobb, in the case of
Nebraska v. Kimc (not yet publish
ed), in which the Court says that
"by Sec. 124 of Chap. 1G, all invest
ments or loans of the State money
arc prohibited. The deposit of the
$2,000 in the bank of the defendant
was a loan in its legal effect."
January 25th, the Senate Finance
committee examined Bartlett, pres
ent Slate treasurer, and J. Ii. Clark,
cashier Liucoln First National bank.
McBride was sworn, but declined,
under advice of counsel, to answer.
Bartlett (who was deputy under
McBride) testified that he knew of
no consideration being paid to Mc
Bride by any person or bank, for the
use of the funds of the State.
According to the correspondence
of the Omaha Republican, "Clark
testified that since the adoption of
the new constitution he had paid
McBride no interest on funds de
posited. Prior to that time he had
paid four per cent, on average daily
balances. He testified that during
the last term of McBride as treasur
er he had paid Stout, who was his
(McBridc's) bondsman, four per
cent, on average daily balances for
sums deposited ; had, howcver.never
made a contract with McBride or
said a word concerning an agree
ment. Considered McBrido under
obligations to Stout as his bonds
man, and had
to Stout and
made arrangements with him, simp
ly carrying over McBridc's balances
of the preceding terra."
"Whether criminal proceedings
will be instituted remains to be seen.

What some of our Exchanges Say of the Pro
Gentlemen legislators do not bo in a
u hurry to vote money for a new capitol
building if the old one will stand two
or three years longer. Times are hard."
That is short, but just as excellent as
it is brief.
" "We do not doubt but the Capitol
building is inconveniently small, but
we do not favor, under existing circum
stances, any appropriation for enlarge
ment. The permanence of the present
location of the Capitol is still au open
question, and under the stress of the
preseut hard times, nothing of a public
character which is not absolutely nec
essary, should be undertaken which
would add to the people's burdens."

"The taxpayers of Nebraska mav as
well put it in their pipes now that as
long as the Capitol remains at Lincoln,
they will be compelled to pay neat little
sums for repairing and rebuilding those

The better way would be to erect new
ones in another part of the state, where
a distribution of the people's money
would do some good. The little state
of Lancaster county should not be sel

Senator Clarkson of Colfax
stood forward in the senate in a
prominent Yote. Ho is determined
to void the patent hitherto allowed
in the state on one "of the "inven
tions of Satan." The honorable
gentleman asked the senate to adopt
a resolution which should disqualify
for two years, persons who had
served as jurors in comity and dis
trict court, that is, he proposed that
after service for one term, it shall be
two years before a person shall be
called upon to act, as a juror again.
The Senator in support of his motion
said its intention was to rid the
state of an abominable parasite the
professional juryman ; and as a con
sequence, the courts of his familiar
photograph. In the country he was
not so great an affliction as in the
cities; but still they know enough
ol him to be well aware that he was
an invention of Satan, whose func
tion was to belittle the administra
tion of justice, to make a farce of
the most sacred institutions, to pun
ish the innocent and to reward the
guilty. The honorable gentleman's
energetic, if short speech seemed to
have convinced his confrerers, for
they adopted the motion with one
unanimous "yea." Lincoln Journal.
A leading organ in Vienna has
made the statement that the Afghan
war is the mere picket work for the
great conflict to come. The Shah is
forming ballerics and rocket corps
at Teheran by conscription. Fifteen
thousand recruits have recently been
added to his army. Russia is all
powerful at the Shah's court. The
Persian army is to assemble at
Meshed in the spring, its destination
being Herat, were Russia hopes
Persia will meet the British. A
Berlin special says ominous reports
arc current here to the effect that a
superior officer of the German army
has betrayed to a foreign power the
most momentous military secrets,
including the plan of mobilizing the
army. The suspected person is a
baronet and major of artillery. He
has been arrested.
Senator Saunders voted in com
mittee against the transfer of the
Indian bureau from the Interior to
the "War Department. It is under
stood that Senator Saunders favors
authorizing the president at his dis
cretion to turn over to the war de
partment the control of any tribe
that might be in rebellion, or giving
trouble, or 6tich tribes as the presi
dent may think best at this time,
and that ho was in favor of the
Sioux being transferred at once with
the reservation that such transfer
shall not affect the schools or farm
ing iuterests, &c.
The news from Ft. Robison, under
date of the 23d, brings word that the
escaping Chcyenncs were pursued
by Capt. Wessell's command, and
overtaken about forty-six miles from
Ft. Robison, where a severe battle
was fought, strewing the ground
aud killing twenty-three Indians in
their rifle pits. Three of our troops
only were killed, Sergeant Taggart,
privates Brown and Nelson. Capt.
Wcssells was wounded in the scalp,
but not dangerously. Ambulances
will bring in the dead and wounded
and the captives.

says it is announced in diplomatic
circles that England agrees to defi

Mr. "Warrington has introduced a

Thompson, Day, Slocura, Mead,

Mr. Clarkson offered a resolution
in the Senate that a road tax of three
dollars be imposed upou every man
resident in the State between the
ages of 21 and 55 years, which tax
may be paid by two days' work of a
man upon the roads, or one day's

Mr. Brown on the 23d introduced

tion instructing the attorney general
to institute criminal proceeding-,
against late State treasurer McBride
for willful and acknowledged viola
tions of the law.
Dear Journal: Work in the
Legislature is steadily progressing
and numbers of bills being put
through, or in process. I find Sen
ator Clarkson has just been added to
the committee on revision. The
senator in a motion in the Senate
(that wa3 adopted) moved that a
juryman serving once on a jury in
the county or district court, should
be disqualified from serving for two
years, thereby putting a stop to the
Senator Birkhauser seems deter
mined to go for our late treasurer,
J. C. McBride, for alleged illegal
management, while in office, and he
keeps up most persistently. As
what McBride did was calculated to
save expenses to the state, I think
the people generally will not find
fault with him.
At the United Slates court last
"Wednesday, just before adjourn
ment, the temperance orator, J. B.
Finch, gave a brilliant address to a
crowded house in the Capitol build
ing on "Wednesday, and at the Opera
House Thursday evening. Dr. Mil
ler of the Omaha Herald gave a
good address, rather against the
prohibition bill now before the leg
islature. Next week we get a lecture here
from Bob Burdelte, of the Burling
ton Haiok'JSye, and from the talk,
all Liucoln intends to hear him.
The well-appoint( d hotel, the Com
mercial," is full to overflowing, aud
they could not register more; one
day this week iu this hotel, a hu
morous adventure happened to one
of Omaha's most prominent lawyers,
which I send you. I know it to be
correct as the gentleman admitted
it, in my presence.
A great many ladic3 applying for
clerkships, and occasionally one gets
in on a committee. A large asscm
blage of ladies aud gentlemen were
in the House to-day expecting the
Capitol appropriation bill to pass,
but though brought up, it is laid
over; as things look, it will proba
bly pass entire. In the various
State departments, the salaries of
most of the deputies have been cut
down, much to the disgust of the
said deputies, but they have to grin
and bear it. "Such is life."
