r.f the tlelallN upon which tho ohurae of shoriUKo was inaile, I hud lie
como perfectly Htitlsflftl that no such shorlaito hud ever existed; but
that tho ullegnd ahorlage reported by the Colorado accountant resulted
from his failure to allow credits shown tiy tho imoks of original entry
and rcA'clpts from tho lerrltorlal treiisuier. to which Mr. ltursum wus
clenrly elitltlud; und ulso from absolute errors In fliiiires ty the account

there hud been no shortage whatever in Mr. Ihirstim's accounts with
