Reeogniis City Treasurer's Signature.
I INNINGS VWILL N6HT FOR OFFICE
rrlire Intention tr Hold n I'nlll
Forced Ont br Writ of
Ooitrr from tbe
"Countr Treasurer Kink Thursday or
shortly thereafter will notify thoso banks
In which city funds are on d -posit not to
recnfcnire the sisnfiture of A. HermtnKS a
rlty treasurer atier January 4 This will
be the firft etep Mr. Kink will take In con
formity with the provlFlons of the rlty
rharter that lie. berome rlty treasurer "i
officio January 4. This nrtl.m Is to antici
pate a right on the part of the present
rlty treasurer to hold on to his ofllre.
It was learned Wednesday for sure that
Mr. Hennlnps would flKht for the ofTlre.
Contrary to his avowed Intentions quietly
to resign, Ftep down and out JunuAj-y 4
and turn over the rn.h to County Treas
urer Fink, as provided in the rharter, Mr.
Hennlna-s will harm on to his offlre until
tarred loose hy a niiindate from the state
This course Mr. Hennln(t decided upon be
fore withdrawing from the rare for the
republican nomination for mayor and the
energy he has been expending hustling
votes for the hlfthest office In the rlty he
will now concentrate In an effort to hold
what he has.
All this Mr. ITennlntrs has decided upon
not because he wants to remain city treas
urer of Omaha, he said, but because he
wants to be aura that ha la being legally
llnnch from School Hoard.
The action of the school board In decid
ing not to release Mr. IfenninK'a bondsmen
pave him a strong hunch to hold onto the
office, as he feared about the time the
mayoralty race w:is warming tip along
would come the school board to hold him to
his bond. This would have placed him, he
thinks, tn the attitude of fighting for the
office, while running for another one, so he
concluded to gt out of the running and let
the courta suy whether he will still be city
treasurer after January 4.
The Cathers cane will make no difference
In the treasurer matter, Mr. Hennlngs said,
but action will have to be brought against
him In the nature of a mandamus to com
pel him to turn over the office.
In tho matter of the school hoard re
fusing to release the bondsmen of Treas
urer IIennlng. Assistant City Attorney
Herdman Is of the opinion that it will play
a very little part in the proceedings at
tendant upon the transfer of the otflce to
the county treasurer.
l.ntT Releases Comiinny.
"The law releases the bond company,"
said Mr. llerdmun, "and when the city
tn3iirer turns over the money according
to law that la all he will have to do. So
far as tho school board Is concerned It
couldn't release the bond company If It
wanted to, unless the law required It to.
In this case the charter Itself will take
care of the relcane of the bond of the out
going city treasurer."
Tho notification of the banks by Treas
urer Finlt not to recognize Mr. Hennlngs
h city treasurer will, In all probability,
result in having all the city funds on de
posit tied up for an Indefinite period, as
the bajiks probably will not recognize Mr.
Kink aa city treasurer until the caBO has
been passed upon by the supreme court. It
will mean that no warrants can be paid
until It la settled hy the courts who la the
legal city treasurer.
County Treasurer Kink has filed his bond
for the new term of office beginning Janu
ary 4, in the sum of Siixvuo. When he com
pletes hla bond for Omaha city funds Mr.
Fink will be bonded fur close to $1,000,000.
AND THE DUCKS CAME BACK
Incident Transpire Which Convinces
Henry Illller thai 1--tt1 Have
"'Don't tell me that ducks have no sense, "
said Henry Ilillcr, coming down on a street
car Wednesday morning. "Here's the proof
that a duck is as intelligent as a dog.
A few days before Christmas two live ducks
wero received ut our house, ostensibly for
the Christmas fea-n. They were In a box
and were placed on the porch at the back
of the house. No sooner had they arrived
until they began to talk, duck fashion, and
they seemed to bu very well aatlslled with
their surroundings. The birds were left
outside during the night and the next,
morning, when we went to look after them,
they had disappeared. Somehow or other
they had gotten out of the box. The
natural presumption was they were stolen.
Hut I didn't think bo. At all events the
box was set aside and the mutter was
forgotten until Christmas morning, when
we heard a quacking outside, and on going
out where th box had last been placed,
there those two ducks wero talking to
themselves and were glad to get back.
No, we didn't kill them. We are going to
keep them. You see, they sukpected they
wire going to get it In the neck and bo
they Just slid out. Being strangers in the
city they did not know where to go and
came back to our house. The funny part of
it Is. those ducks had never ben in Omaha
before and how they munagrd to get back
to our house after being gone a day or
two, I don't know, unless U was that they
just determined to see If we had the nerve
to kill them after placing so much conU
tlaace lit us."
