STATEMENT MADE
BY J. T. PATTISON.
Declares That at Former Removal He
Was Charged With Shortage
Which Was for an Amount
He Never Received.
The State.
Edgefield, Dec. 21.-J. T. Pattison,
treasurer of Edgefield county, who
as suspended by Gov. Ansel as a re
uit of a report charging shortages
his accounts, today gave out the
ollowing statement:
"HavifAg read in yesterday's issue
he tremendous statement made to
v. M. F. Ansel by Comptroller Gen
ral A. W. Jones as reported to him
y E. B. Wilson, his expert account
nt, it is but justice to myself that
the public know something of the
th or falsity of that statement. On
the 6th of January, 1905, I took
harge of the treasurer's office here
d in May of the same year, in mak
g up a report of receipts and dis
ursements, it was ascertained that I
as short in cash something more
an $4,000. I went to work to find
cause of this discrepancy and
'thin about three months after I
ook charge it was found that I was
arge with an amount that I should
ave received but did not receive and
e balance was traced to the Far
ers' Bank of Edgefield, where I
tand ready to prove it is. This short
Auditor J. B. Haltiwanger made
wn to the foreman of the grand
, A. F. Padgett, who was at that
e and is now president of the
ers' bank. Afterwards the in
gating committee for the grand
the .foreman being chairman,
oborated the stat4ment already
de.' Subsequently both the auditor
d myself notified Comptroller Gen
A. W. Jones and he and his ex
s worked the matter to their sat
action aid for this I was removed.
however, was. reinstated after put
g up this money, which I am now
ue the Bank of Edgefield, as the
rds in the clerk's office will show.
e'county and State lost nothing in
transaction.
A'As to the investigation recently
ade by Eugene B. Wilson from the
omptroller. general's office, I stand
ady to show and to prove by books
d vouchers checked by him that
statement made by him is not only
correct but~ false, and this state
ent Comptrol1er General A. W.
nes makes to G av. M. F. Ansel
'thout maaking any effort to ascer
*the truth of,it. If men of honor
d selfrespyet are to be subjected to
eh humiliation and such indecen
s as are contained in the report of
W. Jones to the governor as is pub
hed in the State of yesterday, then
does seem that the time has really
me when all decent and respeeta
~men will surely seek other' em
yment than that of public office.
