there bad been no complaints of nil)

A curious feature of tlio matter It

which dlil not belong to him, he re
tains his "position In the tax olllre
while the man who through a mistake
allowed him to collect commissions
not owing to lilm, Is fired.
The following official statement In
rcgnid to tlio matter has been made
by Governor Frcar:
"Mr. Holt, tho Tax Assessor has
tendered his resignation and It has
been accepted. Tho Treasurer anil
myself requested Mr. Holt's resigna
tion, and, nfter thinking tho matter
over, ho tendered il nnd It lias been
Wo liavo been Investigating the
matter at great length and very care
fully, realizing Its seriousness from
tho standpoint of Mr. Holt as well at
that of tlio Territory, nnd havo been
unable to come to nny other tonclu
sloit than that It would be impossible
to retain him.
"Scleral matters have been looked
into. At piesent only the following
need bo stated:
".Mr. Holt certified claims On com
missions on tax collections of Mr. llnr
bottle la excess ot tho amount duo tc
Mr. Harbottle, or, moie particularly
ho allowed Mr. Harbottle commissions
twlco on tho samo collections, clthci
Intentionally or by mistake.
"Afterwards, as ho hlmelf admits
ho directed Harbottle to prepare false
statements to bo submitted to the
Trcasmor in order to cover up the
matter, tho falsity consisting in the
icprescntatlon that Harbottlo luaiU
certain collections with which ho hat'
in fact had nothing to do.
"When asked to explain, Mr. Hob
nt first denied that ho had paid double
commissions on the samo collections
but later was forced bv his own act
and llgures to admit It. Ho then on
deuvored to show that ho had lator
mado deductions from other commln
slons to Harbottlo to an extent sulll
dent to correct the overpayment, but
In order to make out n showing of this
kind ho had to mado an Incorrect
statement, tho Incorrectness of which
was apparent from other stntcmenU
and figures nt his own.
"Ono result of his overpayment wa.
that tho County of Oaliu overpaid the
commissions properly paynblu by II
and has not yet been reimbursed. Mr
Holt concedes this and, although he
has known of it for a long lime, lint
not acquainted tho county of tho facts
nor reimbursed tho county.
"Tho Government recognizes that
everyone is liable to maku mistakes
and If an officer piovos himself In gen
crnl qualified mistakes now and then
can bo overlooked, but when an ofllcet
deliberately falsities In tho perform
nnco of his ofllclal duties tho situation
Is very different."
Asked If Other changes In tho Tax
Office had been decided on, tho Gov
"Tho present olllco foico will go on
without Mr. Holt until u successor Is
Who this successor Is to bo has not
been announced, but in Iuw of tho
fact Hint it Is well known that Camp
bell has for n long time been trying
to got rid of Holt In order to put Chas.
Wilder in his place. It Is probable
that tho latter will get tho plum.
If ho does, however. II will bo a
pmmotlon ot tho second deputy over
tho head of the first, Arthur Neely
As wns pointed out by tho II u 1 1 u 1 1 n
recently, Wilder, although only sec
ond deputy and therefore n subordln
utu of Nccly's, has, by Campbell's ord
ers, been drawing down a salary ol

not to causo any surprise.
Campbell stutcB that tliu whole
trouble started with Holt's action
while the Treasurer was In the Hast
in requesting tho County of Oaliu tt
pay commissions on tho collection ot
delinquent taxes. This matter was
discussed at length In the 11 u lie tin
at the tlmo the request was ninde tint
when tho Supervlbors voted lo pay a
ten per cent commission. At thai
tlmo no objection was mndo to the
plan, and It appeared reasonable tc
everybody. Campbell, however, stalei
that when ho heard of It, lie strongl
disapproved and wrolo Holt accord
Regarding tho Harbottlo mm tor

collected 110 personal taxes. Ills ac
tual commissions on collections thai

Tttrltory, $4(MD; from tho county

"Ho was paid, however, fiom till

JlO.GOn total of $71.4!). In othei
words, tho county. Instead of pa)lnt,
$ir.."i. paid $10.(10. or $24.8r. mori

siend of paying u commission oi

than It should. The county Is nctuall
out $24.85 on this one transaction
"That may luno been by error we
nro admitting It was by error but
nothing has been done toward recti
fylng It bo far ns tho collector Is con
corned. Harbottlo's testimony win
that Holt purposely did It, but wi
liino nothing to say about lh.it. Tin
fact Is it was not rectified."
In connection with this statement. It
Is to bo remembered that tho l.eglsla
turo created tho office ot Assistant
Treasurer, which Is filled by Heiirj
Hnpal, In order that that official might
hno.)wor to perform tho duties ot
Treasurer at such times as tho lnttci
official should bo out of tho Territory
Whllo Campbell was awjy, thciefore.
Hnpal was acting Trainer nnd
Campbell was temporarily out of of
ficc. It Is difficult to ice, therefore,
what tho latter had to do with any ac
tlons taken by tho Acting Treasurer
And Hapal mado no objection to
Holt's plan of having tho collectors
paid by commissions deducted from
tho County tnxos collected.
Aknu, tho Chlncso whoso suit
against Dr. Goodhue, the Government
physician of North nnd South Konn,
for $Ii000 damages for Illegal nrrcst
and examination as a leper, was tried
In Judge Do Holt's court, was award
ed by the Jury one-tenth of tho
amount sued for.
Tho Doctor stnted this morning
Hint ho has no Intention of giving up
cither tho fight or tho money, but
says he will take nn appeal to the
Supremo Court. Ho wns defended by
Deputy Attorney General Whitney.
