of the opinion that the fund has not right
in the general fund and should not be di
verted for any other purpose that that
for which It ia intended.
A fund which is paid into the Institute
for the Feeble Minded at Beatrice Is also
handled peculiarly. The statutes cover
ing the disposition of funds to state in
stitutions eay that It shall be unlawful
dfor any official of a state Institution tn
receive any fees or any money belonging
to the atate without paying the same
into the state treasury, but provides that
"the head of any institution receiving
from any source funds to be held in
trust and expended for the benefit of any
inmate thereof, shall not be required to
pay such trust funds Into the state treas
ury as provKed herein, but shall at the
end of each month file with the state
auditor a detailed and attested statement
of all such moneys received and expended
by him or her."
The Beatrice institute receives from the
different counties of the state which have
inmates in the institution a certain
amount of money each year for the sup
ply of clothing, etc., to the Inmates. This
amounts to a considerable sum, but, ac
cording to the state auditor, the superin
tendent of the Beatrice institution haa
made no report on this fund, and nelthf-''
has the State Board of Control required
the superintendent to make any report
to them, according to information given
out at the office of the secretary of

Just, why the law, so plainly written,
should be Ignored and the superintendent
of an. institution given money to handle
