(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Feb. 20. (Special.) Repre
sentative H. H. Hanks of Otoe county pre
dicts the adoption ot the Torrens land
transfer system by the next legislature.
Mr. Hanks Is author ot the bill creating
the Nebraska Torrens commission. Ha waa
in Lincoln today and examined soma ot
the details ot the commissioners report.
- ''Basing my ' opinion upon what I had
read and heard of lta work In other sates,
I believed when I Introduced the Torrens
bill, and do now, that the system would be
adopted by the next legislature by an al
most unanimous vote," said Mr. Hanks.
"8everal states have adopted the Torrens
aystem of transferring real estate and I
believe It Is but a question of time till
every state In the union will have It In
operation. England partially adopted It
In 1861 and by a provision passed In 1897
It Is now practically compulsory. This
certainly speaks well for the system.
- Wherever I hare found It once In operation
It has never been repealed. The register

Me tiinki. sneaking of the reports. "How
ever, the division will only have the effect
ot making the next legislature more con
servative. I am confident the more people

quite sure the bar of the state will not op
pose the measure. I was talking recently
with an attorney from Illinois, who has
kept in close touch with the Torrens law
because he expected to return to Chicago
to practice. He states that no prominent
attorney would oppose It. Every able
lawyer Is In favor of progress and what Is
beneficial to 99 per cent of the people Is
beneficial to him. The state bar ot Illinois
gave Its sanction to the bill. In Virginia
the state bar association after several dis
cussions appointed a committee to draw up
the bill and present It to the legislature
and urge it paaaage. Brevity, aecurity
and lnexpense recommend It to all. Its
merits are founded upon It test. Trial

Interest money paid Into the treasury by
Mr. Meserve during the year 1898. and the
money alleged to have been received from
the South Omaha Institution Is not In
cluded In any of the amount.
The books of the Treasury department
show that four payments of Interest on cur
rent funds were made by Mr. Meserve for
deposits In state depository banks during
the year 1899. They are credited within
about thirty days after the end ot each
quarter of the year. There Is nothing In
the book to show how much of the In
terest money wss received from the differ
ent banks, nor how much money each ot the
banks had on deposit. The payment were
made tn lump sums and were credited
"From depository banks, interest on cur
Expert bookkeepers examined the records
and came to the conclusion that there was
no way of telling to a certainty whether
or not any Interest on permanent school
money had been credited from depository
or other banks. It was granted that Mr.
Meserve might have paid In some of the
money he Is alleged to have appropriated
to his own use. It was hinted that Me
serve might make hi defense along this
line, maintaining that the payments made
during the year included the Interest money
received from the South Omaha bank.
Baak Reports Throw Light.
Since the expert went over the books,
however, a bundle of bank reports wa
discovered which threw new light on the
matter. The Item ot these reports were
checked over and it was soon found that
all of the Interest money paid Into the
treasury by Mr. Meserve could b ac
counted for a being derived from de
posits of current funds, and from no other
funds. Mr. Prout 1 prepared, to submit
this evidence tn court.
An estimate baaed on the average monthly
balances of the current fund bear out the
attorney general' statement. The average
monthly balance during the 1899 fiscal year
waa $300,680.22. Interest on this average
amount at 3 per cent, the lowest legal rate,
would have been $9,020.40. The payment
during the period amounted to $8,884.1$.
The discrepancy Is easily accounted for,
because the former figures are merely an
estimate based upon an average. The show
ing would Indicate, however, that Mr. Me
serve did- not pay into the treasury much
more than the interest received on lawful
deposits of current funds.

testimony In the trial of Charles Woodwsrd
on the charge ot killing Sheriff Rlcker.
At the morning session Deputy Sheriff
Milne and one other witness were exam

Mrs. Rlcker. wife of the dead man. Mrs.
Woodward, wife of the prisoner, and her
elater were compelled to leave the court
room, objections having been raised to
their staying and lUtenlng to the testi
Testimony this afternoon showed that the
prisoner had Rlcker' gun when he ar
rived tn Montana and traded It to a young
man named Owens; also that he stole a
horse eight miles east of town and rode it
to the Woodward ranch. Eighteen wit
nesses for the state have been examined
and there are ten more to go on the stand
Two of the state's moet Important wit
nesses, Owens and Berkbelmer, will be put
on the stand tomorrow morning. These are
the two men who captured Woodward and
received the $1,000 reward, and to whom he
Is said to have told the whole story of the
killing and the escape.
It Is stated that the prosecution will ex
amine twenty witnesses, and that the de
fense will begin Its case tomorrow. The
defense haa only three witnesses, but U
prepared to make a strong fight for Wood
ward' life; What the evidence In the
prisoner' favor Is, his attorneys will not
say, but It has been learned that test!
mony will be Introduced to show that Jim
Westfall, the escaping prisoner that has not
yet been captured, killed the sheriff, and
not Woodward. Clark Johnson, one of the
witnesses for the prosecution, testified that
he and Westfall were at the Woodward
ranch when Rlcker waa killed. Westfall
went outside of the house shortly after
Rlcker started for the barn and a few mo
ments later he heard a shot. Going out-

dark object lay near the barn door. Both
men shot at the barn and Westfall said
"Watch me shoot that sucker," pointing

were unanimously of th opinion that aa tb

the state could better afford to forego the
benefits of the national meeting and apply
the expense of the delegate upon the work
In Nebraaka. Accordingly not cbly this has
