In the Sacramento and San Joanquin Valleys OFFICIALS' BONDS MAY BE INCREASED Claim Made That Heads of the State Offices Do Not Furnish Sufficient Security SACRAMENTO. Nov. 24-— According to Information given out at the Btate rapltol th^ attention of Governor elect Johnson and the legislature will be called to the amount of bonds now fur nished by state officials, with a view to having , several of them increased tenfold. Among those suggested for in crense are the secretary of state, the superintendent of public instruction and the state printer. "U'hen the codes were adopted many years ago the general bond furnished by state officials was fixed at $10,000 each for the attorney general, state printer, register in land office, secre tary of state, superintendent of public instruction and clerk of the supreme court. It Is pointed out that although the receipts In the office of secreta.ry of state have increased from $25,000 annu ally to f1. 000,000 annually, the 6ecre retary of state is required to furnish a bond no larger than that of the su preme court clerk, who handles not more than $1,000 a month. It is also suggested that while the state con troller, who handles no money, is retired to put up a bond of $50,000, that the state treasurer, who is now handling $10,000,000 annually of the state's funds, is required to put up a bond of only $100,000. The state printer expends about $400,000 for school books yearly and turns the books over to the of public Instruction, yet both of these furnish a bond no higher than that of the attorney gen eral, who handles no money.
