State Inspector Finds $20,730 Is
Due State Ex-Official Asks
Suspension Of Judgement,
Frankfort,Ky.,Nov., 20. State
Inspector and Examiner Sherman
Gqodpaster filed with the gover
nor his report on the state iusur
ance for' the past four years,
while C. W. Bell was commission
er, and-finds that $20,730 is due
the state from 'the insurance
companies during that period is
unaccounted for. The total
figures that in fees, license, etc,
there should have beeu turned
over fo the state $201,514.79 in
the four years, while in fact on
ly $18(1,203 51 was turned over.
The total amount that should
have beeu collected for the 2
per cent tax on all premiums was
.$1.417,084 33, while iu fact but
$1,411,001,90 is accounted for,
leaving $5,412.43 unaccounted
for or a total of $21,700 missing.
The inspector makes no charges
agaiustMr. Bell or auy 6f his
subordinates-, except that of al
most criminal carelessness and
say their rceords show that so
much money ah?u!d have been
turned ever to the state, but was
not turned over; bat. the books
of the office were bungliugly aud
carelessly kept jth'at'itiB possible
that some of the insurance com-
tnl ovve'a-part 6(
this $20,000, hut he has uo way
of ascertining this fact, except to
make out accounts against the
companies and present them
which would tal six months.
He said, however, if the com
panies failed to pay, it was the
duty of the commissioner to re
voke their license aud as no
license were revoked the presum
ption is that they paid what
they owed. The inspector says
the fees of the office are charg
able to the commissioner and his
failure to collect them makes
him responsible to the same ex
tent as if he had collected them.
Commissioner Bell ssid he had
uol seen a copy ot the report and
;had nothing to say now, except!
to ask his friends to suspend
judgement for a few days.
