-Y ANSWERS EXPERT.
;$al He Shows That Expert Kingsley's Findings Were Biased and In correct. The reply of Q. B. Kelly and hi» at torney, H. W. Dunton, to the charges made against Mr. Kelly by C. S. Kings ley who exported the penitentiary booke. slows conclusively that the expert got things a little mixed in hib report to the state prison board. Mr. Kelly's answer is too long to publish in full but we give a few sections to show that Mr. Kelly was falsely accused of wrong doing by Mr. Kingsley: We feel restrained to call the atten tion of the board to the facts that Mr. Kingsley after exporting the books, took it upon himself to make certain entries in the books, which were so full of er rors that he drew red lines through his work on pages 126-8-9. and entirely severed from the cash book under date of August 15th, when he was not ap 1x>inted "expert'' until Aug. 19th. He has made fictitious and "unau thorized" entries on the ledger which »re incorrect, and with the apparent ob ject of showing a deficit against Mr Kelly, where none existed. "Expert" Kingsley in balancing Sam Mathews' account, subtracts the debits, $12.80 from the credits, $40.08, and ob tains a balance of $17.87. A glance will reveal the fact that the correct balance is $27.73. In the account of "the State of Ida ho. M he subtracts the debits, $2.70 from the credits. $844.86, and obtains a bal ance of $814.16, when the correct amount is $842 16. Fifteen other accounts in the ledger show errors either in subtraction or ad dition or both, made by "Expert" Kinusley in taking off his balances. The month of May, 1904," says "Ex pert" Kingsley, "appears to have been a troublesome month in the affairs of the chief clerk—history of bank ac count troubles, etc. This is one statement of "Expert" Kingsley's to which we cannot take exception and a little explanation is in order: We opened an account with the First National bank and on the statement of the warden that certain amounts had been deposited by him, the bank was charged; and similarly, the warden re ported verbally to the chief clerk to credit the bank with certain amounts which he had checked out. The clerk realizing that the only business like way to handle a bank ac count is to enter deposits only from de posit slips or a bank book, and check either from the checks themselves or the stub; and observing that Mr. Perrin sometimes paid cash ont of his pocket and asked that same be entered as check, asked the warden for his bank book that he might know whether or not his account harmonized with the bank'«. The warden claimed that he kept no, bank book and refused au examination of his check book, saying the stubs were not filed out. * The clerk thereupon asked the bank to make np a book showing all ttos> transactions of the warden with the bank from the time the account was opened to date (May 1, 1904. ) . Said bank book revealed the fact that no warrants had been deposited since December, 1903, and that the balance in the the bank to the credit of the peni tentiary was only $21.90—when there should have been $1347.88. , * Mr. Kelly was very much worried over the situation, wondering to what (< extent he wonld be held responsible for the entries, even tnough he had been ordered to make them by Mr. Perrin, and talked the matter over with Mr. Bingham, the deputy warden, who ad vised that they (Bingham and Kelly) go at once and lay the matter before the attorney general. They did, and Mr. Bagley told them that Mr. Kelly should baye insisted on vouchers, bank book, etc., so that the entries in the state books, for bank transactions would always agree with the aocount kept at the bank. Continuing. Mr. Bagley said to Kelly: "You have an understanding with the warden at once, make your books agree with the bank's and charge to the war den personally the money he has used in his own affairs. "Then have Mr. Perrin authorize you, over his signature to make the en tries necessary." . On May 14th, 1904 (see cash book folio 103) the clerk made the proper trios to straighten this affair, called the Warden in his office and told Mr. Per rin that he knew his true condition. Whereupon Mr. Perrin confessed that he was sorry that he had not reported matters correctly to the clerk, but that he had expected to replace the money* within a short time, and even had the promise of $1100.00 in a few days. Mr. Perrin turned back into state funde during the month of May in the neighborhood of $1000.00, so that at the time of the chief clerk's suspension (Aug/ 16, '04) if we include the July warrant—not at that time reported— Mr. Perrin's shortage was only $868.32. The "Foregoing analysis" will show why "actnal bank transactions" were not recorded "to the confusion of ac counts," etc., and that no item therein is "unauthorized," and that the regularities" are not the clerk's, hut the warden's. As will be seen by the following true and correct copy, Mr. Perrin, authorized the clerk on May 14. 1904, to charge his (Perrin's) personal account witn $1325. 48, crediting the bank with $407.18 and the warden aocount with $918.3Q; « Boise. Iaaho, May 14, 1004. Q. B. Kelly, Chief Clerk, Dear Sir: en^ ir I hereby acknowledge as correct the statement handed me today by you, a copy of which is attached hereto, and authorize you to make the charges against my personal aocount, of the re spective amount in the warden's ac- ! count and . the bank account, i $918.80 and $407.) ! (viz: Yours truly, C. S. Perrin, Warden. Reference to the cash book will show that the amount of cash on hand should be $462 59 which amount was turned over by Mr. Kelly, and for which he bolds receipts. "Expert" Kingsley throughout his re port, uses the amount of $230-63 as the cash on hand. The trial balance, folio 9, is pvoof*that the books were in balance before the "expert" made his entries, and demon strates that every dollar that has passed through Mr. Kelly's hands isac ounted for. r*. , The statement of resources and lia bilities-immediately following the trial balanoe is based ou Williams and Rog ers' method and shows the true finan cial condition of the institution. ( Total liabilities, $832.06. $968.74. t. S. $1868.82.) Reference is now made to the five "Findings as matters of fact"—on folio 17 of "Expert Kingsley's report—all of (Signed) Total resources, Perrins' insolvency, ; which we have refuted except No. 3, "That he has changed and converted the funds of said institution from the original currency in which received to other currency." This is too deep for us to solve. I J J Respectfully submitted, Q. B. Kelly, H. VV. Dunton, Attdrney for Q. B.Kelly. INSULTS THE WOMEN. Rev. Clay, Democratic Nominee for Congress, Casts Reflections on Mormon Girls. j The people of this city resent the declaration of Rev. B. F. Clay, Du boisite candidate for congress, made in his recent speech in this city, when he said that Mormon girls are not as virtuous as the Gentile girls. The experience of every citizen of Pocatello proves that the assertion is absolutely without foundation of any kind whatsoever. They have known Mormon girls and they know the Gentile girls and they will testify that the Mormon girls rank in virtue and chastity high, very high indeed. If the entire truth must be t^ld, they rank higher in this respect, as a whole, than their Gentile sisters, and by this no reflection is intended upon Gentile girls by any means. All of them bear excellent reputations in this Vicinity with, of course, unfortun ate exceptions. The people who heard Mr. ('lay's declarations were indignant and they had a right to be indignant. They know that he was misrepresenting a large part of the inhabitants of this city and munity who are no more easily mis lead than any o^her people in other parts of the country. Any one having a C 1 .. com decent regard for the people anioug whom he lives would resent the imputation cast up on the young ladies when he knows them to,be false, and those who do ! ! resent the foul misrepresentation will emphasize that resentment by adding to the number of votes that are east against against the unjust and uncalled for religious fight fath ered by Dubois and nursed by Clay. —Pocatello Advance.
