Shortage Is Made Good.
Paying to the elate 117,500. the
Title Guarantee and Surety Co., of
Soranton, Fa., settled by compromise
the shortage of Judge C. E. Booo, the
defaulting former assistant auditor.
The full amount of his shortage was
$35,000. The peculations of Judge
Booo began under Auditor Gus Coul
ter, and continued through the admin
istration of former Auditor W. S. Ha
ger and even under Auditor Frank P.
James. The settlement was made
through Col. Ell H. Brown, represent
ing the surety company, with the sink
lug fund commission, and the 117,500
was accepted because many of the
peculations were of small amounts and
were hard to account for. Judge Booe
was paroled from prison and Is In busi

Circuit Ceurt Gives Orders,
The Franklin Circuit Court grant
ed to J. E. Williams a man
datory injunction, requiring Gov. Mc
creary to Issue to him a commission
as County .Judge of McCreary county.
The ease will be Immediately ap
pealed, -as Oev. McCreary staled that
he desired a court decision ' on the
question Involved in the construction
of the Act of 1912, creating the new
county. - . - i
The act authorised Gov. McCreary to
appoint a full complement of officials
for tho new county, and stipulated thaf
they should hold office until the next
regular county election. While the
regular election last November came
after the creation of tbe county and
the appointment of officials, it was not
the year In which county officials are
elected generally In Kentucky. Coun
ty officials over the state will be
elected next November, and Gov. Mc
Creary construed the law to mean that
the officials he appointed Should hold
until that time. Jf
Tbe Republicans in tyfCreary coun
ty nominated a ticket 0 fill the vacan
cies until next November and the re
turns showing that Williams hod re
ceived a majority of the votes of the
county, were certified to the Governor,
who refused to Issue the commission.
Williams then asked the court for a
mandatory injunction.
Rules on New County Officers.
Judge Stout in the Franklin circuit
court sustained a demurrer to the an
swer of State Treasurer Thomas Rhea
in the suit of Commission of Agricul
ture (J. W. Newman to compel the
treasurer to stamp as Interest-bearing
a warrant for $30,000 Issued by the
state auditor In favor of the state fair
board. The warrant was Issued under
an appropriation made by the general
assembly In 1912 to pay off notes of
the s(Ate fair,, payment of which had
been guarantee! by sixty Louisville
business men. The esse will be ap
pealed. ,
Judge Stout's opinion was not writ
ten. He held that the treasurer was
purely a ministerial officer and must
honor warrauts Issued by the auditor.
Should 'ttie opinion be affirmed by
the Ci-'Jrt Jf DTili-ttwottiev.-
all the appropriations made by tbe last
general assembly wb.es. the auditor
had Issued tbe. warrants..
Judge Stout decided that the act of
1912 requiring the state to pay for
bonds of state officials Is Invalid, as It
was not signed by the president of tbe
seuate. A test suit was filed la the
name of State Superintendent Barks
dale Hatnlett.-who submitted his bond
for approval and payment of the pre
mium. The rase will be appealed.
Loses Verdict Through Error.
Krror in instructions caused a re
versal of the Floyd Circuit Court by
the Court of Appeals in a case in
which Elizabeth Roblnett had recov
ered $500 damages on account of an
exciting ride she had from Catletts
burg to her home In Harold, Floyd
county, on tbe Chesapeake & Ohio.
Her father, with whom she was sitting,
and the conductor engaged in an alter
cation over her father's ticket, and her
father was knocked against her and
then put off the train. The conductor
was afterward declared insane, and
she sued the company, charging that
assault and battery had been com
mitted on her person. The court held
that if she had been brought Into phy
sical contact with the participants dur
ing; the fight by reason of one of them
being knocked against her, that sub
stantially fulfilled tbe statutory defini
tion of assault and battery, but the
trial court failed to give instructions
to the jury to which tbe defense was
Will Keep Accounts at Penitentiary.
The Individual accounts of prison
ers In the State Reformatory and the
Eddyvllle penitentiary will be kept by
the wardens instead of by the audit
or's office. Tbls plan was agreed upou
at a conference between State Auditor
1L M. Bosworth and Daniel E. O'Sul
llvan, chairman of the State Prison
Commission. The percentage of rev
enue from prison labor set aside for
the benefit of the prisoners will be Is
sued la lump to the wardens by war
rant on the treasury and tbe wardens
will Issue checks to tbe prisoners. This
was considered the simpler method of
handling the funds, as otherwise some
one representing the prisoners would
have to come to Frankfort from Eddy
vllle and send an order for a warrant
every time a prisoner wished to draw
his money.
