Some years ago the son of A. Halberg
of Osage City, Kansas, left home and
enlisted in the navy. Nothing was heard
from him until the wreck of the Maine,

Then came a letter from the lad saying
that he had never been on the Maine,

It looks as though the future was
about to see a different state of affairs in
pnblio matters, at least. There is an
intention on the part of sovereign citi
zens to hold public officials to a much
stricter accountability to law, than some
of them have at times held themselves, I
and in the account below, which we clip
from the Lincoln Journal, our readers
will see that the only surely safe method
for officials is to follow strictly the letter
of the statute without doing violence to
its spirit. The decision was published
entire in last Thursday's Lincoln
Chief Justice Harrison's last official
act as a judge of the supreme court of
Nebraska was to hand down an opinion
holding that the state can recover from
insurance companies the fees paid to
Eugene Moore and retained by him when
he left the office of auditor of public
accounts. The decision came in the form
of a reversal in the case of the state
against the Home Insurance company of
New York in which suit the state sought
to recover $272 from that company.
Judge Holmes of the district court of
Lancaster county had decided that the
state could not recover.-
This decision of Chief Justice Harrison
is far reaching, as it is construed to mean
that the state will be able to recover from
insurance companies the full amount of
Eugene Moore's shortage, amounting to
over $23,000. Nearly the entire shortage
comprised fees paid by insurance com
panies. The supreme court had previ
ously held that the bondsmen of Eugene
Moore were not liable for the shortage
nn tha crmnnd that the fees retained did
nt Kalnncr In t.hn ntnta and that MoOTO
as auditor was prohibited by the consti
tution from receiving the fees. In the
case just decided the court holds further
that the constitution also prohibited the
insurance companies from paying fees to
the auditor. .
Insurance companies have paid fees to
the state auditor in this state for twenty
years, and not until Eugene Moore's term
did any auditor fail to account for the
funds. Since the court's holding that
the auditor had no right to act for the
state or to receive such fees all insurance
companies have paid fees direct to the
state treasurer. Each company after
paying fees to the treasurer receives a
nuwint. nnd hv nrofientinc it to the audi
tor is able to receive the service required.
In prosecuting this suit the state had
to meet the assertion that in suing to
recover from Moore and his bondsmen
the state elected to make the auditor the
debtor and therefore could not afterward
look to the insurance companies for the
money. It was contended by the com
pany in this case that the state's suit
against Moore was in fact a ratification
of his act in receiving the money. The
court holds that no one had authority to
ratify for the state.
The court also overrules the conten
tion of the company that if Moore had
no right to receive the fees then the cer
tificates issued by him and the services
performed by him were void.

It seems that some man in Lincoln
at one time owned a farm in Butler
county that he somewhat neglected dur
ing the past ton years and about four
months. The farm was in the neighbor
hood of Dwight. The Bellwood Gazette
says that Smith Bouton was on the jury
that recently tried the case, and gives
this further account: "During the ton
years the roan at Dwight broke and cul
tivated about 40 acres of said farm, using
the remainder as pasture land. About a
year ago the Lincoln man asked the
Dwight man to vacate the farm, which
contained about 160 acres of land. The
Dwight man, who ran a fence through
the land and made some other improve
ments, informed him that he would
vacate for a certain sum; but this the
Lincoln man refused to give and failed
to bring suit for the recovery of his farm
until ten years and about four months
had elapsed, which according to law
made the Dwight man'monarch of all he
surveyed. The jurors hung over the
matter for about thirty-six hours, but
after they did arrive at an agreement to
bring in a verdict in favor of the Dwight
man, by a vote they all decided that such
a law was a bad one; but they were com
pelled to abide by it."
