Board met, same members present. Board proceeded to destroy uncalled for warrants and destroyed warrant No. 2377 in favor ot Wm. Currie dated Jan uary llth, 1S93. Board continued to check up county treasurer's and county auditor's books. The following is the report uf A. L. Miller, states attorney to Jan. 3, 1899. To the Commissioners of Pembina County: Gentlemen:—I beg leave to report the following, as such matters as I de it proper, your attention should be called too, as they might otherwise be]overlook ed. First. During the term Qf N. C. Young a judgment was secured against Charles Keller and one Greenwood for some thing over $500 by direction ot Judge Templeton. This judgment was secured upon an action brought against the de fendants as the bondsmen of one John Goodman held to answer on tiie charge of violating the prohibition law. This matter has never been brought to a suc cessful issue because of its peculiar legal standing, the defendants having made a motion for a new trial during the term of Mr. Young, which has never been argued although several attempts were made at fie June. 1898 term by myself and Mr. Young to take the matter up, with Mr. Kneeshaw attorney for the defendants. This matter should be disposed of soon. Second. At the June, i89^ term, by direction of Hon. O. E. Sauter, judge, the bond of C. Adamson was forfeited and the court instructed the states attor ney to proceed to collect the same Adamson was represented by fudge E. W. Conmy as. attorney, and some time after the adjournment of the June term wrote me asking that no action be start ed as Adamson was in Manitoba and making pr. parations to pay the bond and secure the release of his bondsmen. The matter was taken up once or twice after that time with Judge Conmy, with the result that no suit was instituted in the hope that a settlement could be affected without. This matter should be closed up as soon as possible as the surities on said bond are not considered good. In the matter of the State vs Louis T. Nelson, who was sentenced during the June term 1898 by Judge Sauter under the bastardy act ol 1895 application was made to Judge Sauter lor the discharge of Nelson under the provisions of Sec. 618U to 6143 inclusive of the Revised Codes, and Nelson at the hearing dis closed to the court that iic- was possessed of a silver watch and gold chain and that the sum uf one hundred and five dollars was due him from his brother, Thedore Nelson of Cavalier county for work. The cuurt authorized the release of Nelson upon his turning over to the states attor ney the watch and chain and an order on Thedore Nelson for the payment of the mouey due. Nelson turned over the watch and chain and the order to me on the 17th of September and on the 21st i.ay of September the order was accepted by Thedore Neison, who promised to pay the same. The watch, chain and order have been turned over to my suc cessor? In the case of Nevins vs Gordon and others, which was a case arising out of th: drains made in the vicinity of Bath gate in tuis county. Full settlement was mad throug.i negotiations with your board, as you a aware of all the steps 12 taken. I I wouiii a so port ill tin the various .8 1' u\ c.iSes agiin»t c.ev..tur companies *, I .•V Is" J- v, doing business in the county, settlement was also made through negotiations with your board, as will be shown by the records, and the records will show the particular cases which were settled and I understand the money paid into the treasury. In the matter of drain No. 10 petitioned for by the citizens of St. Thomas and Midland townships I would say that A. Childerhose, one of the parties assessed for benefits, brought action to enjoin the auditor for extending the assessment in the taxes, which matter was duly tried before the court at a special term held in St. Thomas, and by order of the court Childerhose was relieved of his assess ment. At that time the evidence dis closed that the drain commission had failed to comply with the provisions of the statute in proceeding for the comple tion thereof, lor this reason it will be impossible to complete under the present proceedings the construbtion of that ditch. In addition to the above I have made special report to W. J. Burke, states attorney elect of this county, in the vari ous suits pending in which the county is interested. We, the board of county commission ers of Pembina county, have made a close examination of the county auditor's and county treasurer's books commenc ing from the date of last checking, we have checked up records of both of said offices making examination of warrants, orders, vouchers, etc on file and find the business affairs of both of said offices satisfactory and correct.
