Springfield, 111., Nov. 26.—(By the
Associated Press.)—Suits for ac
counting against five former state'
treasurers alleging shortages of ap
proximately $2,500,000 were started
today by Attorney General Edward J.
The suits cover the six terms pre
ceding that of the present treasurer.
Edward E. Miller, and are directed
against all state treasurers who held
office between 1909 and 1921. State
Auditor Andrew R.ussel, who was
treasurer -twice during the period, is
defendant In two suits.
The other former treasurers In
volved are Governor Len Sma'l, Lieu
tenant Governor Fred E. Sterling, Wil-
Ryan' Jr"and
Interest turned over to the state by
these former treasurers, according to.
figures given by Attorney General

Evidence Furnished.
Disclosures made through the in
vestigation of the state treasury
which resulted in indictment of Gov
ernor Small, Lieutenant Governor
Sterling and Vernon S. Curtis, bank
ing associate of Governor Small, last
July, furnished-the evidence on which
the civil suits were 'based, the attor
ney general's office announced.
The suit against Lieutenant Gover
nor Sterling, filed today, alleges that
10,000,000. of state money used by
Governor Len Small and the late Sen
ator Edward C. Curtis for their own
personal profits, continued under the
control of Curtis after Sterling,
Small's successor, became treasurer.
The bill alleges that shortly after
Small became treasurer in 1917 he
entered into a scheme with Curtis to
use large sums of state money for
their own private gain. Small, at the
expiration of his term, the bill con
tinues, removed from the treasurer's
office, books and records relating to
deposits, loans and interest earnings.
Immediately upon the commence
ment'of his term as treasurer. Ster
ling, the bill further alleged, became
a party to a plan through which the
money was to continue under the con
trol of Curtis, that additional sums
were to be turned over to him, and
that the scheme was carried out, to
the personal profit of all in the al
leged plot.
Collected Big Interest.
A large part of the money handled
through the arrangement was invested

Close Rim Beaukse Of Non
payment Of Taxes Gov
ernor Nestos To Issue A
Strong Appeal In A Few
Days To State Taxpayers.
(By Staff Correspondent.)
Bismarck, N. D, Nov. 26.—On ac
count of the depleted condition of the
state treasury, Govjernor R. A. Nestos
will in a few days issue a strong ap
peal to all taxpayers of the state who
are at all financially able to do so to
pay up their taxes before the annual
tax sale which is 'to be held Decem
ber 13.
Both the state and its sub-divisions,
school districts, etc., are urgently in
need of funds the governor points out
and investigation of the condition of
the various state funds as shown in
the records of State Treasurer John
Steen confirms this view.
Drafts Arc Large.
Take for example the general fund
from which the ordinary running ex
penses of the state are paid. On No
vember 23, when the new administra
tion came into office the' balance re
maining in this fund was-91,37.1. Tax
receipts not yet apportioned will add
about $100,000 to this fund on De
cember 1, but the drafts drawn
against this fund will just about wipa
out both the balance and the addi
tional receipts for this month at the
rate the latter are at present coming
Other funds are in the same condi
tion. The permanent school l'und
contain^,only $32,189. The perma
nent fund of the state university now
has a balance of only $890.40 and
that of the state agricultural college
at 'Fargo one of $4,409. .'
In Worst Condition.
Of the special funds, that of the
state license department is in -the
worst shape. On November 23 the
balance in this fund amounted to
$1,626, and there are unpaid current
bills amounting to over $5,000 to be
met. It Is probable that some of
these bills will have to go unpaid until
1922, as the receipts for this fund
will be small until next June.
The Real Estate Bond payment
fund (presents a. serious problem. At
present there is in this fund $29,SS5
There will be few additions

drawing interest at five and three
fourths per cent Or about $115,000.
Tax Levied for 1992.
A tax to meet this interest has been
levied for 1922, but this will not be
available in time to pay the 1921 In
terest which must be raised from oth
er sources. Defaults of interest pay
ment on the part of makers of real
estate mortgages against which the
bonds are issued has caused this sltu
I ation.
Some Funds in Good Shape
On the other hand some of the Siata
special funds are in good shape. There
lis for example in the Workmen's
Compensation fkind at this time tho
[sum of $1,022,545. This is a separate
fund however raised by premiums
charged employers for employes' in
surance, and may jiot be put into the
general fund to pay the current ex
penses of the state government.
These conditions are chiefly due to
non-payment of taxes. On October 1.
