BANKS OF WISCONSIN
ARE NOV IN A QUANDARY
Complications Over the Etate Treas
uryship Situation KempFs
Milwaukee, Wis., Sept. 3. There are
5G banks throughout the state which
have been made depositories of the
state funds and they have become very
anxious to know what is to be done re
garding the order of the governor to
turn over to the City bank of Madison
certificates of deposit for the funds in
The ostensible reason for requesting
this was that the security company
might be satisfied that the money was
actually in existence in the various
banks before they released Kempf
from liability under his bond.
In the order sent by the governor
and the state board of public accounts,
which includes besides the governor
the secretary of state and attorney
general, it was said that the funds
"may" be returned, but does not say
they will be.
While the banks are generally those
in control of La Follette men, not all
of them are, and some of them mani
fest a disposition to do as the Ger
mania National did in this city, refuse
to pay the money to anyone until the
supreme court has decided who the
treasurer really is.
Ixcal banks were today flooded with
telephonic inquiries from banks in the
state asking advice as to what to do
in the matter. The only Milwaukee
bank which recognizes Purtell. the
new appointee, is the Marine National,
which says it will pay his checks. It.
is presumed that enough others may
be found in the state who will recog
nize him so that the state will not be
cramped for funds immediately.

The Taitse is flooded and cannot be

Japanese left army, has directed his

were drowned there.
A private dispatch received litre re
ports that great fires are raging at
