however the fever mastered the patient , and

Governor Holcomb came to Omaha ycb-

lu the suit agali 3t the bondsmen of c\-Stato
Treasurer Bartley to testify to what he
terms the real condition jot affairs In the
treasurer's olllee at the , close of Bartley s

ttcond term Ho found , however , that the
attorneys In the case would eonbume the day
In arguing law points , and he returned to
Lincoln , subject to the call of Attorney
General Smyth.
The governor eald he did not think there
j would be any dllllculty in his securing an

the couit had ruled that'the attorneys for
the defense could not offer testimony to

limy become certain the court will refuic to
allow them to proceed " He said these btato-
mcn H had been prepared ostensibly for the
purpobe of deceiving the public
"Por Instance , " said the governor , "they
give out the Impression that the money in
ill jiosltory banks and the liiunoy on hand was
all that was In the treasury at theclobo of
Hartley's first term Thli ia erroneous ami
undoubtedly framed tot deceive The supreme
premo court has decided } that the state
treasurer cannot lawfully deposit the school
funds In depository banks as depository
hanks In fact the Interpretation put upon
the depository law has been that It applies
only to what are called-current funds In Its
application Current funds are distinguished
from school or trust funds and the latte-r are-
cared for by the treasurer just as they have
been during the history of the stute.
"When Hartley be gan his second ter-n he
hud on deposit In depository banks about
$250.000 , exclusive of the sums tied u | . In In
solvent banks , which at tha * tlmo were the
Capital National at Lincoln and the Buffalo
County National at Kearney In addition to
that bo had about $250,000 on hand The at
torneys for the defense In this trial now seek
to show that that was all the money the
treasurer had In his possession , which Is not
true , lie also had between { 175,000 aod { 500-
000 In school funds which were not recorded
ab being deposited in depository banks This
money was deposited In banks of his ow"h
selection , regardless of whether they were de
pository bankn or otherwise. No one ex
pected the treasurer to keep all that money
in the vaults at hlo olllee. It never had been
done and Is not now done H would not be
safe. Thcbo funds were bolely In charge of
the treasurer as had been decided by the supreme
premo court "
The governor did not say In what shape
Bartley had this sum of school money , but
rather Implied that It was deposited In
various banks over the state He forcibly
reiterated his statement that there was no
shortage at the close of Hartley's first term ,
and that Hartley made no statement to him ,
either pcrbonally or by some one In his
ofllce , that ho was short It * his accounts
He felt confident that he would be able to
clear up the who'o queistlon If given an op
portunity to testify In the trial. If the
was denied him , he raid ho would make a
statement , giving the details , and furnish
