Barton Writes Letters.
'State Auditor Barton' this afternoon
wrote the letters wlrlch have been hang

dressed to former officers -of the Union
Fire Insurance company were identical
and were as follows:
"We have In our possession a contract
signed by you and your associates In

to the Woodmen Fire Insurance company
all ' possessions of the Union Fire Insur
ance company, Including furniture and
fixtures, supplies, books, money's, bills

Mr. Barton also addressed a letter to
State Superintendent Deliell In which he
Informed that officer that while it was
apparent from the latters' letter the
payments to the teachers examlng board
were correct so far as they related to
examinations of teachers and of the
twnlve schools enumerated in the bill
authorising the creation of the board, he
still found no authority for payment of
money for examinations pf the state nor
mal schools and he would refuse In the
future to audit bills for that service.
State Superintendent Dclzell did not de
sire to say anything regarding the letter
except that he. doemd the normal exami
nations necessary to enable the board to
properly perform its work.
