MNCOLX. Fob. 1. ( Special. ) The conrtl.
tutlon of the Btato provides that officers ot
the executive department shall foe allowed no
feet and that when any ecrvlco Is to be pec-
foimed by them the money shall < bo "paid In
advance Into the state treasury. " The prom-
Incnco given thla section In the submission
of the 1'ugotio Moore case and the expecta
tion that the supreme court will In Its deci
sion make a strict ruling on this part of the
constitution lias aroused considerable dls-
cumlon as to the meaning of the section re
ferred to Some contend , with Moore's ] avv.
ycrs , that U means that the pcroons rcqulr-
Ing the service to bo performed shall ( Irs ;
pay the money Into the treasury. Others
( hold that a strict Interpretation will bo that
the official Is requireto ! pay the money Into
the treasury before ho performs the corvlcc.
This discussion naturally leads to the query
as to how the ruling will affect the present
state officers.
H Is apparent that no matter which way
the court holds In the Moore case the present
Btatu auditor will bo left open to public
criticism on account of Ms manner ot hand ,
ling the fees that come Into Ills office. Uy
his last semi-annual report to the governor
( Auditor Cornell nhows that on May 31 he
had In his hands $7,038 In fees wSilch should
liavu been In the treasury. It also shows the
following collodions Juno , $451 50 ; July ,
S550CO ; August , $512.150 , September , * 254 CO ,
On Juno I , although ho had almost $8000 on
hand , the auditor turned $1,000 Into the
trcomiry On Juno 29 , with $7,39250 on
hand , ho paid In $0.100 On Augiut 31 , wlfi
over $2,300 on hand , he saw lit to pay to thu
treasurer $900 and on October 22 , with
nbout $2,000 on hand , ho paid $1,000 At the
tlmo of making the report , according to his
own figures , ho lind In his hands $1,001 10 ,
which the constitution sayu should be paid
Into the treasury In advance.
In order to obtain some light on this and
other questions from portons who have re
cently made constitutional provisions and
"unauthorized expenditures" a study , The
IJeo representative brought these facts to
the attention of Chairman Otto Mutz of the
legislative Investigating' committee.
Mi Mut7 said that If the auditor's state
ment made any such showing it was clearlj
n matter for Investigation In a further
conversation the chairman nf fir ' " -n" "
let the matter out that the report ot Ex
pert Taylor , which Is still iinpuu uneu , cum ,
attention to this state of affairs , and criti
cises the auditor for holding back themonej.
Mr. Mutr wtis also asked the following The
records In the office of the state audit-r
show that Governor llolcomb has drawn dur
Ing his three years In. office about $1JGO for
house rent. In violation of Oils section of the
constitution Do you consider H a part of
your duty , as chairman of the Investigation
committee , to Investigate and repoit on this
violation ot the constitution ? Do jou con-
hldcr the $1,200 drawn by the governor for
" " "unauthorized expendl-
"house rent , as an
tuic , " or aa n "shortage ? "
Mr Mutz said that in regard to the draw
ing of house rent money by the governor
there had always been considerable doubt
ns to Its legality , but Inasmuch as the monqj
had been appropriated for that purpose by
the legislature , he did not bellovo It to be
within the province ot his committee to In
vestigate the nets ot the legislature. He ad
mitted that the "house rent" feature was a
"perqulrtlto" prohibited by the constitution ,
but had no opinion to give ns to whether
It was an "unauthorized expenditure. "

FREMONT , Neb , Feb. 1. ( Special. ) A
mooting of the sugar beet raisers ot this vi
cinity was held nt the court house this nftci-
noon for the purpose ot raising money for
the proposed factory. There was a good at
tendance of the farmers from this vicinity
and much Interest was manifested. The
price to bo oald for beets by the new factory ,
It was stated , would bo $4 per ton and the
contracts would be as favorable to the beet
lolsers as those of any factor ) In the state
Of this $4 per ton the farmers were requested
to donate for the factory the sum of BO cents
per ton on tlio whole or a part of the acre-
ngo contracted for. About 600 acres woio
contracted for in a short time , whlnh on the
Uisls ot ten tons to the acre , means an ad
dition of $1,000 to the bonus. The farmers
were unanimously In favor of a factory , the
only question which In any way tended to
make them hesitate about subscribing , was
the kind of a contract the proprietors of the
new factory will sign. The prospects are
good for tlio raising of the balance of the
bonus needed to secure a factory hero In a
Ahort tlmo and It Is expected ; the plant will
bo completed In scasoci to work n > the ' 93
crop of beets.
