Judge Louis C. Barley, of tbe Cor?
poration Court of Alexandria, on Wed?
nesday, aa stated in yesterday'l Ga/.ette
entered a final decree in the Circuit
Court of Prince William county in tbe
suit of tln: board of supervisors of that
county against James E Herrell, tbe
Tbe suit wbicb bas been pending for
over tliree year-. involved tbc accuracy
of tbo defendants aecounts ever since
he became treaaum io 1899.
oneof thecharges wbicb the decree
su.-tains is that tbe treasurer failed to
aeeount properly for all oJ tbe penalty
received on taxes collectcd after tbe 1st
ol December of tbe year when due.
Another charge wbicb is tttataloed ia
that be failed to aeeount for nll < f the
money received on aoCOOOl of the re
ilemption and sale of land returned de
lirepient for the non-payment of taxes.

A number of other cbarge
sustained, such as bis failure IO return

hiL.it bis cash statement to tbe jndge
and Coiiinioiiweahh's attomer. aad
bis failure to render tbe board of BUi
pervisors tbe hi-monthly statements re
(juired by law.
One of the most sensatioual charges,
whieh was aoet titied. was tlie one th:r

re-oleelion) he p!a ed UD tlie list of
qualined volcrs a number of persot s

euraeiea in tbe tt^mmb-ao-wr'a repoit;
that several mootba h:\d elap^ed, and
the defendant had been given every
opportunity of filing his statements.
but tbat he had failed todo so. and had
announeed that lie had nothing further
The court also said that tho treasurer's
oflice was the worst kept office ho had
ever seen. and that the ollicial books
nnd reeords weie in sueh a condition
as to render extreinely difficult an
arcurate settlement; that ho could not
uuderstand how sueh a condition had
been tolerated as loug as it had.
When the suit inatured, nearly three
years ago, by consent of all parties to
the eause the matter was referred to 0.

ney for Fairfax county, as a special
commissioner to report on ihe trea?

him for over two years, and the testi?
mony, hooks, papers.'record. aud other
ezbibita filed before him would fill a
barrol. The fce paid him for this re?
port was the largcst hy far paid any
commissioner in the circuit within the
recollection of many attorneys.
Upon a hearing of this report tn
July the report was recommitted to
the commissioner, with iustructions to
reviea his report or not, as he was ad
vi.<ed. The second report, whieh was
nvontlv filed, adhe'res to the views
