GRAND JURY WORKS ON BIG SCANDAL
Chief Clerk Henry Smith of tlic Ju
dietary Department tills morning Hint
ed c'cflnltely tliat 1. Hanson Kellett
wns nut the only clerk of tho Depart
ment who lind emb"ziled funds In tho
custcdy or tlio Circuit Court. He also
Bald that not only Judge Do Holt, but
nil tho other Judges ih well, had sign
ed logus checks, which had been pre
sented to them for their endorsement.
Tho matter will bo taken up again by
tho (Irund Jury when It meets on Mon
duy, and It Is an assured fact that a
big sensation will soon electrify the
quiet haunts or tho Judiciary.
Smith said that out or tho J30O.O00
geucial fund In tho custody of the Cir
cuit Court nbout $1600 had been em
bezzled. This fund represents money
which has bcon paid Into court pend
ing litigation, and does not Include tho
moneys handled by tho clerkH in their
capacity as guardians, commissioners,
trustees, etc., of various estates.
"Tho accounts or tho different es
tates nro all placed In thn First Na
tional Hank as one fund to the credit
or the Klrst Circuit Court," said Hmltli
when Interviewed about tho matter to
day. "Formerly any one or tho six
clerks or tho Department could draw
money from It, upon getting the signa
ture of one of tho judges on the clerk,
but under the now ruin passed jester,
day I will now be the only one who
cnu do so.
"The matter Is a very involved one.
ns some or the clerks bavo been draw
ing checks on ono estate, but charged
tlio amount to another, so that tho
whole affair Is very .complicated.
There are about half a dozen or es
tates Involved, but 1 cannot toll )ou
their names, as I nm bound by oath as
n witness before tho Oram! Jury. As
n matter or ruct. I am to appear be
fore tho a rand Jury again next Mon
day morning. Indeed, I would like In
tell you more about tho whole matter,
but j on realize that I am bound."
"Aro any other clerks Involved bo
Hides KellcttT" naked tho reporter.
"Yes; I can say that there nre moro
I linn Kellett," answered Smith. "It Is
not lair that ho should bo shouldering
the wholo blamo ror It, when there uro
iKlieis who did tho same. However,
Kellett wns tho worst one."
"Have any other Judges endorsed
mien bogus checks besides Judge Do
"Yes; they nil hnvo Hoblnson, Clear
nud nil ol them,
"The shortago will not amount to
much more t linn $1600," continued
Smith. "It Is cortaln that It will not
exceed $1000. Tho bank account has
Hot been balanced slnco March, 1902,
mill that Is when nil tho grafting be
gan As n matter of fact, I am not
through with tho Investigation us yet.
In many cases thoro are parties con
cerned In thn estates who aro hurd to
locate, and they nro wanted to verify
"How Is tho amount, which has
beu.i embezzled to bo made good?"
asked tho reporter.
"Well, either by the Legislature
passing an act to cover It." answered
Smith, "or by holding tho bondsmen
of tho clerks responsible."
Judgo Itoblnson, when seen nbout
tho matter said that it was Impossible
ror n Judgo to hold bis clerk nt arm's
length. Checks were continually be
ing passed up to the courts for en
dorsement, often In the middle of tlio
trial of n case, and it would be nut or
the iiuestlun to nnd time to go through
the accounts tn verify it.
Judge Dc Holt said Hint the (ltiOO
which luul been cmberzled enmo out
or the moneys which bad been paid in
to the courts In cases pending, nnd had
nothing to do with guardianship and
trusteeship matters, as, far Instance,
tho Uarcto estate affair, which was the
first case brought ngalnst Kellett.
Henry Smith was working on tho mat
lex and would soon prepare a report
thereon, nnd tho Judge referred the
reporter to hi in ror further Informa
The Drand Jury has already put In
n couple or dajs or hard work on the
matter and next week It will undouht
edly ho kept busy with the same thing.
Heretofore only Henry Smith nnd
James Thompson, who hnvo conducted
the Investigation or the accounts In
volved, hnve appeared bcroro tho In
milsltlon, but tlio Grand Jury Intends
to call many other witnesses In the
case, principally the people, who have
Interests In tlio depleted estates, who
will bo called to show that they had
no Interest In tho checks which wcro
drawn allegedly in their bcmrtT" -
It must bo remembered that besides
tho clerks who aro at present holding
oince, there Is a possibility of somo of
the ex-clerks, who have now retired,
being Involved, as the embezzlements,
according to Smith's statement, date
from as far back as March, 1902.
V. O. Smith, or the Inter-Island Co ,
confuted the opinion, which was gain
ing ground here, that the steamship
company wished to pull away from tho
rallroud wharf for the purpose or em
barrassing and hampering the rail
road. He snld the two companies aro
on tho friendliest of terms, that their
Interests cro identical In iiiiiny ways
and that the only motive or the Inter
Island Co. In tlilg matter was n desire

Itho verdict returned by his Jury yeslor
'day In tho Shlmalshl case. In which u
Japanese pimp who had shot nnd
wounded his former mistress, who re
fused to cohtlmie to gle him her dis
honorable earnings, was found guilty
of assault only. In spite or the fact that
he was charged with assault with In
tent to commll.murdcr.
Shlralshl wus brought before tho
Court this morning for sentence. Ills
attorney, W. T. Itnwllns, spoko ror
clemency. Ho pointed out the fact
Hint the verdict wns evidently the re
sult or a compromise, showing that
some tho Jurors thought that tho de
fendant was not guilty.
Deputy Attorney General Fleming
said Hint the verdict was a ridiculous
one. It should have been one for ns
sault with intent to commit murder,
or ut least with Intent to commit man
slaughter. "I must confess Hint I w,is very
much surprised at the verdict," said
Judge Do Holt. "To my mind the evi
dence clearly Justified n verdict, a J
charged, for assault with Intent to com
mit murder. Thero was, or course,
some debatable ground on the subject
or premeditation, so there might have
been some Justification ror n verdict
ror assault with Intent to commit man
slaughter. "Tho verdict has every appearance
or being ii compromise verdict, nl
thought the Court expressly Instructed
