Lynch Shortage in Pktt County Mot
In the Lincoln Journal of June 8th we
find the following:
Attorney General Smyth gave an
opinion yesterday in answer to a request
of County Attorney William O'Brien of
Platte county for directions in the man
ner of settling up the shortage of ex
County Treasurer J. W. Lynch of that
county. Mr. Lynch, a fusionist officer,
was short over $30,000. The county
board collected about $17,000 from his
bondsmen. Now the question is whether
the county may keep all the money col
lected or whether the state is entitled to
its share of the money due the state as
taxes collected by Mr. Lynch. The
amount due the state from the money
paid in by the bondsmen is said to be
between $8,000 and $9,000. The county
attorney asks two questions. First,
whether the county board should re
quest the state officers to demand of Mr.
Lynch and his bondsmen the amount of
taxes due from him to the state; and
second, whether the county of Platte
would be liable to the state for the
amount of state taxes unaccounted for
by Mr. Lynch, in the event it cannot be
collected from him or his bondsmen.
Attorney General Smyth gave a writ
ten opinion in which he says the county
board should not request the state offi
cers to make tho demand. The state
cannot sue in such cases, the county to
whom the treasurer's bond runs alone
having, the authority. It is the duty of
the county board to proceed against the
ex-treasurer and his bondsmen at once.
The auditor of the state may make the
request but such request is not neces
sary, in answer to the second ques
tion the attorney general says:
"Answering the second question, you
are advised that in my opinion the ex
tent of the county's liability on the
hypothesis stated there, would be limited
to the maximum rate of taxes which the
state board of equalization is authorized
to levy. I can find no provision author
izing the levy of any greater tax. Un
officially it has come to my notice re
cently that the sureties on Mr. Lynch's
bond have paid into the treasury of
Platte county a largo sum of money to
liquidate Mr. Lynch's shortage, and that
the treasurer of your county has not ac
counted to the state for any portion of
the money so paid. If my information
be correct, I shall contend, should it be
come necessary, that the treasurer is
responsible to the state for its. propor
tion of the money thus paid, and that a
failure to account for that proportion
subjects him to the penalties imposed by
sections 1G7 and 168 of the revenue act,
as well as section 5, article 83 of the
Don't Give Up.
Editor Journal : I see George Bar
num has been writing about Southern
California. The personal part of his
letter was good, very interesting and
true. Wish as much could bo said about
the other part.
True, I writo with some jealousy for
my adopted state, but I do not want to
take one iota of merit or glory from my
old prairie home in grand old Nebraska.
George may think Californians know
but little about Nebraska. He writes
as though ho had never heard of a
drouth, a crop failure, a blizzard, a cy
clone, a grasshopper, a flood, a famine or
a populist in Nebraska. For his sake I
wish I could forget such things. For
his information lot me say that Califor
nia has fewer such calamities than any
state west of the Father of Waters.
Statistics can't very woll lie.
The one thing that populates South
ern California and makes it famous is
its dryness. Probably Los Angoles, a
city on the very crest of earthly heaven,
would not exist in its present matchless
beauty, prosperity and healthfnlness,
were it not that the climate is dry and
No spot a foot square in all Nebraska
for a single day can out-rival all South
ern California in health, wealth and
prosperity, where the toothsome orange
and fragrant rose constantly abound.
If George was looking for hogs, cattle,
corn fields and prairie dogs of course he
got a little too far from home.

the wedding the couple took the train
