Teeumseh and Johnson county people gen
erally speaking are satisfied at the verdict
of the district court of Nemaha county,
in Auburn Saturday, finding Charles M.
Chamberlain, ex-cashier of the failed Cham
berlain hanking house of this city, guilty
of embezzlement. The case was taken fi'om
this county on change of venue.
The Chaniberlaln banking house of this
city closed Its doors In August, 1S02. a few
days after the cashier had left for the east,
ostensibly to raise funds for immediate use
In the concern. Chamberlain disappeared,
going first to Cuba, then to Mexico, later
to the Pacific coa. states and finally to
Canada. April 15, lu5, he became wearied
of dodging the law, for there was a reward
of 11.200 for' his return, offered by the
Board of County Commissioners of Johnson
county. Chamberlain came to Lincoln
from Chicago, where he worked for a few
weeks In a packing house, and from the
office of his attorney, Mr. Rose, the sher
iff of Johnson county was telephoned to
come to Lincoln, and Chambeiiuin would
accompany him home, which lie did.
A grand Jury in this county-on March 3.
19i3, brought in eighteen Indictments against
Chamberlain. Chamberlain was acuultted
on one of these, and the one on which he
was convicted in Auburn last week no
doubt covered some ground that Is con
tained In others. This particular indict
ment acciiNed him of embezzling Sio.ooo of
the bank's money on August 25, 1902, the
day he departed for parts unknown.

WASHINGTON. May 30.-Speclal.)-A
clear exposition of the amendments to the
bankruptcy law proposed by him In a bill
Introduced In the . house last Tveek was
given today by Congressman Kennedy for
the benefit of readers of The Bee. Mr.
Kennedy holds that the bankruptcy law
Is now a recognized necessity In the busl
ness world, benefiting alike the creditor
and the honest debtor, and his amendments
are designed to make the way of the dls
honest debtor still harder.
saea aoout tne possibility or the re.
peal of the present law. Mr. Kennedy said
"The present bankruptcy law Is a striking
evidence of the fact that Intelligent and
experienced business men frequently stand
In their own light. For many years the
majority of them persistently opposed the
proposition to enact su -h a law, and ths
passage of the act was made possible only
after a long campaign ot education. Prior
to Its passage the United States was ths
only civilized nation without a bankruptcy
law. At the time It was passed the ma
jority of the business Interests of the
country believed It would serve a tempo
rary purpose only, and then should be re
pealed. In other words, they thought the
bankruptcy courts should be used as so
many clearing houses to clean up the
accumulation of financial disasters and fail
ures, and then they should be closed
again until a new crop had accumulated.
Today 85 per cer.'. of the business interests
of the country ir-? In favor of the law
and want It continued as a permanent part
of the commercial system. This Is the
correct theory. Ine bankruptcy law will
not be repealed now, or at any time In the
Law la Better Enforced.
"There have been complaints about the
law and Its operation, but these have been
traceable not so much to the law as to its
exocutlon. When the doors of the bank
ruptcy courts were opened, after belti
closed for twenty years, these courts wrre
filled with debtors clamoring for relief
from their burdens. The malority of them
had little left but liabilities. I'll- law was
new to .the courts, the referees, the
trustees and the attorneys engaged in the
proceedings. It had to be construed. The
Judges, the referees and the trustees were
Inexperienced In bankruptcy proceedings.
The business thrust upon them as so
great that they had little time to investi
gate thoroughly the ftnnnial affairs of
the bankrupt, and In mar. case he was
discharged without having fully accounted
for his property. Now thsse official liot
only have experience, but they have the
time properly to administer the luW, md
they are getting better results.
Itrferees Recommend Changes.
"In 1903 the original act was amended in
certain important particulars, and was
greatly strengthened. The referees In bank
ruptcy, through their association, last year
recommended certain further amendments,
most or all of which should be adopted.
The bill introduced by me In the house to
further amend the law deals with four
propositions. It provides that if the bank
rupt makes a false written statement to
obtain . credit, even though , not made . to
the creditor direct, he shall not be dis
charged, if it appears that lie made It to
be communicated to the creditor or to the
trade for Instance, If he made It to one
of, the commercial agencies. It also pro
vides that the burden of proof shall be at
all times on the bankrupt to account for
all assets owned hy hlni at the time he
obtained the credit. Both of these pro
posed amendments were recommended by
the referees. Taking them together, the
dlshonst debtor is caught coming and going.
If he has made a written statement sched
uling his property, he must either admit
that the statement was false, or he must
account for the assets he represented lie
Two lie iv Provisions.
"My bill contains two provisions not ad
vocated by the referees. One is, in effect,
that If the bankrupt testifies falsely In
the bankruptcy proceedings, he shall not be
discharged, and the other is that In no
event shall he be discharged until the
bankrupt estate has been fully adminis
tered and the property distributed to the
"Experience has taught that shortly
after being adjudged a bankrupt, he ap
plies to the court for his discharge, and
frequently obtains It before the referee or
the trustee has an opportunity to Investi
gate his financial affairs. The result Is
that often, after he has been discharged,
something develops which would prevent
his discharge if known when the order was
eptered. The facts are never fully known
about the bankrupt's property In the be
ginning of the proceedings. They come out
from time to time aa the investigation pro
ceeds. The bankrupt should be kept In
court Until everything has been accounted
for to the satisfaction of the court and
the creditors. Of course, under the present
law, the order discharging the bankrupt
may lie revoked upon a proper showing,
but that puts the burden on the creditors;
and occasionally the bankrupt gets his dis
charge and moves out of the Jurisdiction of
the court before the facts warranting the
revocation of the order are discovered.
'"A bankruptcy law, properly adminis
tered, Is a protection to the business In
terests of the country. The present Isw
should be perfected; Its provisions should
be rigidly enforced, and the dishonest
debtor should receive no consideration
whatever from creditor or court. Wherever
In the course of the proceedings, the bank
rupt commits one of the criminal offenses
defined in the law be should be prose
cuted without fear or favor."
