Against Ure Hqard
In Supreme Court
(From a Staff Correspondent )
LINCOLN. June 17.-(Ppeclal.)-Th. su
preme court has taken under advlM-ment
the application of Ptate Treasurer Hall
for ft writ of mandamus to compel County
iTeasurer Ure of Douglas county tu turn
oer to the state moneys in his penses
tton which the state treasurer alleges are
tue the state and to compel him to make
ticnthly remittances of state money
The( hearing was had before the court
this morning. Attorneys W. C. Ranwey
and I. C. Holland appearing for Mr. T"re
end Assistant Attorney General Ayres for
the state treasurer.
Attorneys for the county treasurer con
tended that the auditor and not the etate
tieaaurer is the party who can bring
action of the kind, as it is only upon a
showing by that officer after an exrmln
ation has been made by him as a'ldltor
of the affairs of a county treasurer that
J.he amount of money due the state can
be determined and that the county treas
urer cannot remit until he does knew.
Assistant Attorney General Ayrei said
the contention of the Ure attorneys was
wrong, as the state auditor would be un
able to examine all the county treasurers
every month to determine how much they
were owing the state and therefore It was
up to the treasurers themselves to know
what the amount was.
The parties were advised to submit
citations and briefs In the case.
