Nashville, January 4,At tho lnet

conuiiltteo was nppnluted tinder n
joint resoltitlon to Investigate
and report to tho next
body the condition of .illldrs in tho
htate treasuror'fl ofllco. Tl:6 report
which has been made makes tho
startling exhibit of a four bundled
thousand dollnra deficit In the treas
ury. A consultation was had with tho
bondsmen of tho treasurer and It was
determined to suspend buslncHS In tho
ofllco for tho presunt. The treasurer
U Colonel Jfarsh T. Polk, a Domoerat
who la now tfervlne In that capacity u

that faith by asserting that he would
not pay tho January interest on tho

planations have been made yet. Tho
teport has created u profound sensa
tion, Nashville. January fi. -Tho an
nouncement from tho state capttol
this morning of the deficit In tho state
treasury, produced a geuulno sensa
tion throughout the city. Tho
following Is llo report of thu
legislative committee:1 Tho Joint se
lect committee to settle with thu
comptroller and treasurer report that
they have visited the ofllco of the
reasuror and upon Inquiry find
tho treasurer away from
tho capital. Ho has been for
two days and they ate not advised
when ho will return. JIls clerk states
that ho cannot go into a settlement of
tho treasurer's account till his return.
They also have Informal Ion from tho
bondsmen, or Homo of them, that tho
condition oftho treasury Is such that
they feel justllled to roeonnnend
that the workings of the
treasury bo stopped until
an examination oanj bo had. Tho
senate adopted the following resolu
tion: Whereas- The senate has rcat-ou to
behove that M.T. Polk, present treas
urer, Is a defaulter for the amount of
WOO.OOO; and, whereas, the
bonds given by Bald officer

of bonds to pay for tho Nickel Plate
road. This was at first denied, but

Is no absolute- means- of knowing
whether tho Lake Shore is to pay
for the Nickel 1'lato by the issue
of bonds, U Is at least probable bondstoM
about that amount will necessarily bol!
