LINCOLN , Neb. , March.2ri.-.fSpeclaltoTiiE
DEE. ] The salary appropriation bill pro
vides for three additional assistants for the
office of auditor of Rtnto. When asked about
the necessity for this increase of his clerical
force Auditor Uonton Invited the interviewer
to a soft , leather-bottomed chair , und , report
In hand , explained In iomo detail :
" 1 have asked for an insurance deputy ,
an Interest clerk and n recorder. For com
parison , lot us take the state of Affairs
Jiovombcr CO , 1831 , and November 30 , 18S8 ,
Tbo Insurance business doubled in that tlmo.
The number of companies doing business in
Nebraska Increased from ninety to 180 , and
there are now 183. Wo issue annually n cer
tificate to every local Insurance agent in the
state. Tlio number doubled in the four
years , and this year wo will Issue between
seven and eight thousand. Wo got a foe of
$2 for each certificate , and the fees of the in
surance department will aggregate (18,00(1 (
lor the year , There is a great deal of work
looking after wild cat companies. It is the
business of the auditor to leave his office and
prosecute such cases. With this deputy the
auditor con bo relieved of that work and ro.
main in hWofllco to give personal supervis
ion to his business. The other deputy cannot
bo spared' because ho must bo hero to
sign warrants , which , by the way , doubled
In th6 four years.
"Tho work of registering bonds .has
trebled , and wo absolutely need another re
cording clerk. Ono of the duties of the ofllcc
Is to register all county , proclnct , village ,
city , and school district bonds issued in the
etato. There are now 000 blocks or sots ol
these , as against 800 lu 1S84. Every series
of bends has a history that has to bo re
corded In this ofllco , and during the nast two
years wo have written 3,000 pages of that
kind of record. i
"Tho provisions of the revenue laws
throw a great deal of work upon this ofllco ,
as everybody knows , but few realize , the In
crease entailed by the organization of now
counties. There were sixty-one counties in
188-1 against ninety now. Wo have annual
settlements to make with each county treas
urer und do an immense amount of math
ematical work. Why , hero 1s ono table in
my lost report that runs from page 53 to 209 ,
The original is as big as that table [ pointing
to a table about Gx2)lj , across as well as up
and down. The care and distribution ol
revenue books and blanks has of course In
creased in like proportion. And another
thing there Is a considerable increase in
the assessment and taxation * work
occasioned by the crolitlon of now
funds for which special levies are nccos <
"Among the smaller matters are these :
There are four now state institutions for
which warrants must bo issued. There are
double the amount of railways and two tele
graph companies instead of ono. The work
Of the office , you see , is growing all the tlmo
and will continui to grow.
"A bill was introduced In the house re
quiring the auditor to Ilpuro the interest on
registered school district bonds the same as
on county bonds. Under the present system
the proper district and county oftlcors fre
quently forgot or neglect to take the stops
necessary to levy the tax for the interest on
Qchool bonds. Eastern investors got dis-
posted , and , as a consequence , our school
bonds often have to bo sold at u discount.
This bill I speak of provides that the auditor
shall flguro the interest on school district
bonds und certify it to the county clerk , who
shall accept it as the levy and put it on the
tax books. Thcro are 743 blocks of thcso
bonds registered In this otflco , and if the bill
becomes a law I shall need an interest
"Indirectly another clerk is chargeable to
my office on account of the now act for the
tale inspection'of banks. The banking law
requires each bank to tlio its articles ,
tnnko a statement within ten days of
coming under the operation of the act and
nlso three statements each yonr. This ofllco
roust ire up the blanks and forms and notify
each bank for each statement. I think there
are between COO und 000 banks that will bo
subject to this law. But while the act pro
vides for a banking clerk to bo attached to
my ofllco , ho is appointed by the treasurer ,
the attorney general and the auditor. That
Is a provision I don't ' like. I would rather
have him put In the treasurer's oftlce , but if
he is put in lilino I think I ought to have con
trol of him. His appointment may bo con
ceded to mo as a matter of courtesy , but
there may como a time when the treasurer
and attorney general will appoint a clerk
whom the auditor would not trust or tol-
ei-ato In his oinco if. ho could help himself.
That provision ought to
Ilcckloss Extravagance.

BBB.J a n on decency ,
the way some of the affairs of the state nro
managed , " said an indignant'miember of the
senate. "Why , Just look nt the demands of
the state institutions for fuel I An appro
priation of $13,000 is naked for heating the
capital. What good reason can tboro bo for
using hard coal at $13 a ton , when other
Jargo buildings nro being heated wltlt soft

t as Lincoln is , at $0.50 per ton Why don't '

"And another thing , " added n listener. "I

builcrs for heating the capital building , and

" 1 tell you , " resumed tuo first speaker.
"there's going to bo an explosion ono ol

to make a record it is right in Nebraska now.
If governor I would Investigate tbo extrava

Senator Sutherland seems to have been
Impressed in the same way , for ho this after
noon Introduced the following resolutions :

nro ready to stay another week it necessary
to glvo the appropriations careful consldora

hnvo lost their grip In the house , nnd cnnnot
now control n majority , while on the other
hand , n combination Is being ; formed to cou <
cur lu the senate's retrenchments. In the
senate little delay Is expected , except ovei
the claims , and a proposition to limit speeches
ns to time and number Is being cbnsldorcO
favorably. Everybody is weary ; evorybodi
wants to go homo.
ItH Slumbers Undisturbed.
LINCOLN , Nob. , March 25. [ Special to Tni
BKE. ] The Joint resolution directing the
board of transportation to make a scale ol
freight rates to prevent discrimination will
not have its slumber disturbed by Its friends ,
It passed the house , but failed in the senate
on a tie vote ot 10 to 10 with Church Howe
absent. Its friends nro satisfied that it can
not bo passed , and they nro willing to lot the
record Bland ns it is. Certain members ol
the board of transportation wanted the reso
lution put through to stiffen their splnul
column * , and a majority of the board , it is
asserted , were nnt unfriendly to it.

LINCOLN , Nob. , March 25. [ Special to
Tun BHE.J The trust bills are taking a rest
for the present. . Senate file 14 , the Kockloy
bill , passed that body long ago , and bus boon
on the general flto in the house for wcoks.
Speaker Wntson introduced two or three
bills on the same subject , and every tlmo the
bills como up for consideration the relative
merits of thcso various measures have been
discussed , but no definite action taken. It
is now probable that the Kockloy bill will
pass the house if it can bo reached , foi
should any house bill of this character pass
it would stand unj excellent chance of being
lost in the senate in the final rusn.

Grant came to the fort fifteen months ago ,
with a batch of recruits , claiming to bo a
member of a leading Virginia family. Ho
was u man of superior Intelligence , und was
soon promoted to u corporalship. Ho gained
the confidence of a soldier named' Charles
Hashing- Jew , who had about $2,000 , saved ,
and persuaded him to enter into partnership
to engage in the business of loaning money
to soldiers from payday to payday , charging
thoin20 per cent per month interest. The
scheme worked well , und the next utop was to
borrow money from soldiers under u promise
of 10 uor cent per month interest. Every
thing moved serenely , obligations were met ,
interest paid on deposits and business de
veloped Into immense proportions.
After last pay day Grant concluded not to
loan any moro money to soldiers , although
his partner believed that ho had loaned the
usual amount , ubo'ut $3,000. On Saturday
morning Corporal Grant was reported "ab
sent. " A searching party Discovered that
when last soen-ho was "bitting the trail" on

The Story of n Mnn Who Wont AVronfj
mid Una Been Pardoned.
A rccon tdlipatch from Topeka , Kan , , con
veyed the intelligence that Governor Hum
phrey , on recommendation of the state board
hnd granted an unconditional pardon to James
O. Pusoy , a convict In the penitentiary nt
Lcavonworth. Ordinarily such nu item of
news would not attract much attention or beef
of particular interest except to those person ,
ally acquainted with the party affected. In
this instance , however , circumstances sur
rounding Mr. Pusoy's misfortune not only
Illustrate human weakness but form the sub
ject of a story which will doubtless
bo , road with considerable avidity
by a great many Omaha people. First , it
should bo known that the prisoner , in in
stinct , is anything but a criminal , and up to
the tlmo of his fall , about four years ago , had
been looked upon as n man of integrity and
lived n .blameless llfo. But the tempter
fin ally crossed his path , ho could not resist
the evil influence , and as a consequence had
to suffer the penalty ,
InXniaha resides ono of the most notorious
women that man over bccamo victim to or
permitted himself to bo led astray by , She
lifts frequently , by reason of her audacious
escapades , figured in the newspaper accounts
of criminal doings and is well known to the
police ai Lulu Rogers. To her Mr. Pusoy
can always refer as the author of his down
fall , disgrace and imprisonment.
During the gubernatorial campaign of six
years ago , in which George W. Gllck , the
democratic candidate , defeated John P. St.
John , Pusoy was chief olcrk to Assistant
Master Mechanic Clem Hackney , of the
Santa Fo road. Ho took such an active part
that the company discharged him , consequently
quently when the now administration wont
Into power Mri Gllck was bound to provldo
for Pusoy. Being nn excellent accountant
and book-keeper , lie was uiado chief clerk to
Warden W. C. Jones , of the penitentiary.
About thu tlmo ho went there his
wife , a very charming woman , died. Shortly
afterwards this Lulu Rogers made her ap-
poarancu on the scene , and being in trouble
on accouut of separation from her husband ,
a man named Do Voro , succeeded in eliciting
both sympathy and pecuniary support from
Pusy. They finally became intimate ; ho
placed her in a well furnished House and
she soon began to niako herself very ox-
ponslvofor the festive James. Ho scorns to
have lost control of himself , and in
order to keep up the swim into which ho
had foolishly plunged found it necessary to
have more funds than his salary amounted
to , and stole about $2,000 from the
state. Ho had an opportunity to
do this by being senton two
occasions to Topcka to make settlement with
the order and treasurer , and draw the funds
for current expenses at tbo iustitutlon. Each
time he appropriated $1,000 to his own use ,
had forged receipts made out by nn expert
bookkeeper who was then serving a term in
the pen for crooked work , and placed the
balance to Warden Jones' credit. When ho
had reached the end of his string and was
about to bo exposed Pusoy fled. Detectives
were put on his track and they captured him
at Cincinnati. Ho was brought back , tried ,
found guilty and sentenced to servo a term
of six years. The woman came to Omaha
und-hns been known as the proprietress of
a disreputable house.

men are watching each other in Boll and
Harlan counties , this state , and Clalborno
county , Tennessee. These counties com *
prison portion of the district made notorious
for years past by the bloody fight between
rival factions. Ono of thcso It now being
bitterly waged. It started on a small scnlu
near hero last week , and has spread Jo tha
vicinity of Barboursvillc , Tcnn. , whore It li
being prosecuted with vigor , For several
days early In the WOOK the mountains in tlio
vicinity of Barboursvlllo were nllvo with de
termined men , armed to the teeth , The Inevitable -
evitable cnuio nud a pitched battto was
fought , lu which It was said that more than
llvo hundred shots were llrod und a number
of pcoplo wounded. But the injured were
spirited away , aud their posse number can
not bo learned. A sheriff's ' was sent to
arrest the rioters , but they were
fired upon and driven back to H r
boursvlllo. It was then that Judge
Cull himself headed n posse and
made for the mountains * . Another
pitched battle resulted , but the Judge's
party , stronir and well-armed , were the vic
tors , and succeeded in arresting live of thu
desperadoes. The sheriff's ' posse Is still In
thv mountains after others of the outlaws ,
aud before the month ends It Is likely a
dozen lives will bo sacrificed In the effort
now making to enforce the laws. Notoulynro
the people of this city and county alarmed ,
but those of Knox county as well , and no
body ventures out unarmed , and few unac
companied by a friend.
Last night word was received by courier
that in a flgtit near Salt Trace , Saturday
night , four men were lUlled and halt a doon
wounded. Reinforcements have goi\o \ out.
A thousand armed men are now hi the
mountains , and it is safe to nay the men will
bo shot to death and the world will never
hear Of it. A fort is bofug erected by ono
faction. The sheriffs of the three counties
nro arranging to make a combined campaign
against the outlaws , who swear they will
never bo taken.
