Dflitiat Report or the StUte KxMinlner
- on Her Splendid I'roiperltv-T.-E.
Blatschard, Stat'o Public Ex
aminer, who has just returned from an
examining trip covering' the northern
part of the State, gives an interesting
account of his year's work. He has
visited every section of the b'tatc and.
finds the. financial condition of- nearly
ail the cotiuties good. Business men
and fanners especially, on account of
the good crops of the past year, have
been able to pay up their taxes promptly
and the County Treasurer's in conse
quence have been able to pay their war
rants. Hq state's that tha public insti
tutions were never as ably managed as
at present; that the banks were . never
before, in as good condition; that the
deposits are very large and that large
numbers of the banks report farmers as
beginning good-sized bank accounts.
He finds that the new revenue law
works fairly well, much better than durf
ing the year 1890," on accpnnt of the
raise in interest, but that he willfor
the purpose of increasing, its efficiency,
recommend a number of modifications
to the next Legislature Ho regards
the outlook for the future as"vcry prom-,
ising and believes that tlie State has en
tered. upon a new era of- prosperity.

In the case against F. H. Hagerty, at
Aberdeen, charged with taking deposits
when he knew the btmk of Hagerty &
Co., of which ho was president, was in
solvent. Judge Haney directed the jury
to return a verdict of acquittal. This
was done, and on motion of the State's'
attorney the indictment for embezzle
ment against Mr. Uagerty and thc'case
against SV. II. Paulharuus, who was
cashier of the bank, were dismissed.
The State failed to prove even tho in
solvency of the bank, and it was able to
invalidate only 200 worth of securities
out of ft surplus of SSO,U0O. as shown by
the schedule of assets -and liabilities.
United Workmen In the liakotas.
From Carl Gcrncr, Grand Master of
the A. O. U.. W. in North ana South
Dakota, it is ..learned that the order
throughout his jurisdiction is in an es
pecially encouraging condition. There
are about. 3.000 members in the two
States; new. lodges are being instituted.
ap,d .tho membership rapidly increased.
Financially the orilcr is in excellent
condition. The Grand' Lodge' is out of
debt and has considerable money in its
treasury. With but two or three ex
ceptions the subordinate lodges arc
in equally gdod shape. Assessments arc
fewer than, in older states, the dcatli.
rate being much smaller. All assess
ments are met promptly and fully.

that will be of interest to fanners ill. all

of the year in which the defendant had
to redeem the land. On a motion for
the Court to direct a verdict for the de

tion, holding that Mr. Fuller had a right

almost marvelous. During the month

For the same period fifty-one farra
mortgages were released, the total
amount btslng 8138,237. Buffalo County
Is oneof the banner counties of the
States and for the past seven months
hasmade an enviable record, for dur
ing this time. her farmers have paid off
HtC, 177.43 of tHeir mortgaged indebt

filed. Richardson County also makes a
good showing. During December her
farmers filed mortgages amounting to

A RUMOR, AT LEAST.
Sensational Keports From Washington
About "JCebraska Affairs.
The St. Louis Republic In its Wash
ington bureau prints the following:
There is a. report in circulation that the
Supreme Court of the United States has
J decided that Mr. Boyd, who was elected
by the Democrats of Nebraska Governor
of that State in the fall of 1890, and
.subsequently turned out of office by the.
Supreme Court of that State on the
ground, that he was ineligible because
of an imperfection in his citizenship, is
eligible, and that at tho time of his elec
tion as Governor of Nebraska was. a
bona lido citizen of the United States.
This will make Mr. Boyd Governor. It
is very difficult to get a Supreme Court
opinion in advance of. its being ren
dered, but your .correspondent learns,
oii what he "believes to be sufficient
authority to warrant the statement,
that the highest court-in the land has,
decided .that Boyd was eligible for the;
Governorship and was entitled to- thatj
office. . ;
During the six months from J.uly 1 to
to Jan. 1 last, the farm mortgages filed
in Adams County have aggregated $177,-789.97-
During the same period the
farm' mortgages satisfied aggregated
-!r2-J,0ir.22; or $46,225.25 more than
those filed. In these six months but
thirteen Sheriff's deeds on farm prop
erty wero given. The city mortgage,
filings amounted to SH2.748.50, and the.
-releases SSO.132.63. For the. month of
December the farm filings were 534,
742.50; releases, S50.804.82. City mortn

A Treasurer's Shortage.
W. M. Walters, the expert hired by
Blaine County to investigate the office
of the late Treasurer, C. W. Aiken, has.
made his report and finds a shortage of
only S1404.38, instead of 32,700, as had
been currently reported. Mr; Walters
also expresses his opinion that, the
shortage was occasioned, moro by Mr.
Aikin's carelessness in keeping his books
than by his intention to filch from the
county coffers. The county will un
doubtedly have to stand this loss, on ac
count of "there being a flaw in the ex
tension of the bond.
