The lack of any national clearance (system in the past has been one of the largest contributing factors in making this lawlessness easy and profitable, Mr. Van Courtland states. With the coin mission's national clearance system in operation a car stolen in Maine, the numbers changed and the car sold anil registered in California, would imme diately le canglit, he asserts The plan is virtually a 'Tiii:gerprint" s.vstein as applied to automobiles. A mas ter record of every car registered in the -ts states, a well as the new cars that come into existence, is to be kept at the commission's headquarters. The numeri cal arrangement of the records makes che-!;ing of any vehicle simple and auto matic. A "Smith eight," for examp'e. engine number 1 ,:!. is registered with the state. The commission receives this number and goes to post it. but finds an other "Smith eight" already registered in that' state or some other and they do not. correspond in detail.

A matter which has a hearing on the case is the fact that several years ago a lire in Treasurer Wright's house destroyed a considerable number of papers and books belonging to the treasurer's otliee. This is reported to be handicapping the auditors in some of their investigations. Miss Keneey had been in the employ of Treasurer Wright for about 10 years, at tirst as housekeeper, but about five years ago. when Mr. Wright's eyes were causing him some trouble, she was asked to assist him with the town books, and since that time had given much of her time to this clerical work. She was held in high esteem in the town. A few years ago she bought a poultry farm, which, with her brother's aid, she conducted. Within a year she had sold poultry to the value of about S'.MMI, seed corn worth aliout S13." and other produce. She had among other things raided tur keys for market. From investigation Lt appears she had ample funds from these and other sources, and local people, cannot understand her apparent connection with the shortage in the treasurer's books. Efforts to show that she had mad" in vestments other than the one in her farm have proved fruitless. Miss Kenney is aliout 30. five feet eight inches tali, has dark hair, is- rather stAnt and weighs alxiut l"."i iiounds. She is fond of outdoor life and of photography. Visited Brother Feb. 22.
