GEORGE SH0WSHIS RECORD Accounted for At! Interest as Treas urer of Custer County. REPLIES TO CAMPAIGN ST0BY First Official to Giro Surety Bond Saowa How Condltlona Differed , v Ten Yeara Ago from Those Hon Prevailing;. ' 1 (From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN, Aug. 28.-(peclal.)-State Treasurer W. A. George has Issued the following statement regarding the charge that he did not turn over interest money during his term of office as county treas urer of puster county; - My attention - has been " called to tan article appearing in one of the democratic papera of August 27, regardlng'my admin istration as county treasurer Of. Custer county, The article in question is mislead- ing., it swtes tnav i-enirea irora the of flee 1 IW0. The facts are that I served 1908, to January, 1W6, ear ago. Vi Aft Indirect charge la made that I did not . account-in full for interest resolved rrom the banks from county deposits. That charge Is not true. Bering the years of my adminlstratton''and years preceding It was the custom of the banks desiring county funds for deposit under the law then m; force- to lite Wtlh the county board a bid for specified amounts and with suoh bid a bond to protect same, and such banka designated by the county board as county depositaries. During my administration the bids and bonds as filed were not sufficient to cover more than a minor portion o f the funds on hand, and In the office, and the balance of funds, were left In - the treasurer's hands, for which he was personally . re sponsible. Numerous requests were made by me to the county board to relieve the situation by furnishing additional legal depositories or providing a burglar-proof safe and put on a night watch, but with out Success. All Interest received from the legally constituted depositories has been . ac counted for, and no Interest was received that was not accounted i for.. other than the legal deposits., I do not owe Custer county one cent for interest. X was the first county treasurer of Custer county to give surety bond, which was given at a cost of 1386, and by so doing relieved myself from obligation to any Individual or banks, such as would huve arisen through my request as sign? era as security on my bond. The legislature, session of 1905, amended a depository law so as to provide for the safe keeping of all county and state funds, relieving the treasurer from peri sonal liability. The law . was again amended in 1907 and again in 1909 and this leaves conditions entirely radically different from what they were ten year ago. Another noticeable change in con ditions as to what they were ten years ago, the county treasurer : received a salary fit 12,000. provided the fees of the office ware sufficient to pay the same, and the provisions for. clerk hire were not sufficient, squiring- the office force to work days, nights and Sundays to keep up the work.whllencw the treasurer re ceives a straight salary ot li,aXr with, no restriction aneV-is aliowed ail clerical help needed to pwformr thaf-worlti.. Under the law onw In force all. counties receive not lass than 2 per cent on their dully balancea "and the state treasurer fets 3 "Per cent on such daily balancea. tader the guarantee law all state banks may be made county or state depoattoriea without the necessity ot Blvtmc bond.-. . The examiner who ihecke up- the rec ords of Custer county for the- uiat-alx-teen years states In his 'report to the county board that my accounts are ab solutely correct, that he found no altera tions or' errors 'therein, and In said re port Is embodied as I take- It a strong compliment for efficiency with which the work In the office was done during my four yeara as county treasurer.- ! - - WALTER A.
