CHARGES AGAINST A TREASURER
Judge Louis C. Barley, of the Cor
poration Court of Alexandria, on Wed
nesday, as stated in yesterday's Gazette
entered a final decree in the Circuit
Court of Prince William county in the
suit of the board of wpemwrs of that
county against James E Herrel ,
C?ThesuftaSwWci-. has been pending for
over three years, invoived thc accuracy
of the defendant's accounts ever smce
ho became treasurer in lb.)J.
One of the charges which the decree
sustains is that, the treasurer failed to
account properly for all oJ the p^alty
received on taxes collected after the Is
of December of the year when due.
Another charge which is sustainetl is
that he failed to account for nil ot the
money received on account, o
demption and sale of land reu.tnedde
linquent for the non-payment of taxes.
The court also held that he had
charged too much commission on Um'
collected. ltwasnl.-nscertH.ned th.??.
the treasurer had failed ?.? account fn.
certain interest collected <>n taxes pai
after June 15.
A number of other charges wen- a *>
sustained, such as his failure Jo^return
delinquent tax tickets to the clerk s o,
fice as required by law: fa'lurc ? ?
hibit his cash statement to Iht jud,
and Commonwealth's .itlomev.
his failure to render the hoard of .1.
pervisors the bi-monthly statements r
quired by law.
One of the most sensational charge*.
which was sustained, was the oiiethiu
in 1907 (when lie was a candidate fo
re-election) be placed on the list of
qualified voters a number of P^???'1
whom he bad previously ^UKned doj (
linquent for the non payment of pol j
""it rendering his opinion. Judge!
Barlev said that be felt the court had
been trilled witb. as he bad recom
mitted a former report in the cause a
the very earnest request of the d?feru**
ant to give him an opportunity of
filintr certain statements, which, it was
claimed, would disclose allege. 1 inac
curacies in the commissioner s iepoit,
that several months had elapsed, and
the defendant bad been given every
opportunity of filing his statements,
but that he had failed to do so. and bad
announced that lie bad nothing further
The court also said that the treasurer s
office was the worst kept office lie had
ever seen, and that the official books
and records were in such a. ??odltl?
as to render extremely difficult an
accurate settlement; that he .could not
understand how such a condition had
been tolerated as long as it had
When the suit matured, nearh taiee

exhibits filed before him
barrel The fee paid him for this re
port was the largest by far paid any
commissioner in the circuit within the
recollection of many attorneys.
Upon a bearing of this re??*.

the commissioner, with instructions to
revise his report or not, as he was ad
vised, '^be second report, wbic
recently filed, adheres to the views
taken in the first, and by decree en

CXAPP INSISTS WIFE SHOT HIM.
H. Mason Clapp, the wealthy club
man, who was shot in the neck and
seriously wounded during a quarrel
with his wife in their Girard avenue
apartment, Philadelphia, on December
12, yesterday disproved the rumors
that they were to be reconciled, when
he appeared beforo a magistrate and
swore that she had deliberately shot
him. She was held in $2,500 bail,
charged with assault and battery with
intent to kill.
Clapp swore at the hearing yester
day that Mra. Clapp shot him when he
was about to slap her face during a
quarrel, which was caused, he stated,
by her "staying out late." He testi
fied that she returned home at 1:30
o'clock in the morniug, telliug him
that she had been on an automobile
ride. He sa>d he had reason to believe
this was not true. When he rebuked
her, lie said she first shot him and
then firedbullet through the ceiling

Skaters yesterday on Great South
Bay, near Patcbogue, L. I., stumbled
over the body of George Brown, lying
face downward on the ice. Two miles
away they found sin iceboat in which

terrified lad apparently remained with
the boat at tlx: mercy or the wind until

j Brown lived in Sayville, and was the
son of uell-to-d?? parents. He was au
expert tec yachtsman, hut the boy was
a novice. A g;ia!i in Crown's head and
frozen blood about his fa?v. indicated
that he was thrown violently.
The two took the craft out yesterday

Civil League of Maine and a promi

ing before A. \V. Gilman, State Com
missioner of Agriculture, at Bangor,
ou Wednesday danced the coochee-coo
chec dance to show why the Eastern
Maine State Fair Association should
not receive the annual gratuity from
the state of about. $1,700.
He said the fair managers allowed
an immoral show on the grounds in
which young women gave dances which
tended to corrupt the morals of youth
and did not promote the interests of
agriculture. Dr. Berry said he saw
the show twice. He also took in the
"after show." for which he paid 25

Catarrh. Get Ely's Cream Balm at once.
Don't touch the catarrh powders and
