TREASURER NOLAND uor,-jrt,l Ktr iha finvAPnnr Suspended by llie bOVemOl, rending an Investigation of His Books. no Warranto Irroceedins to be Instituted to Oust Him From Oifice D.niasing Humors. The Matter Soon to be Settled and the Facts Made Known. Jefferson Civ. ilo.. March 5 Got. Frauds yes'eriiav formally suspended J ... . - . m . I I I Slate Treasurer tvJ. . oianu ana as sumed charge of the state's Gnauces pend ing the investigation of the office accounts The published reports that the suspension occurred last FrMay, on the iroveiuur's re turn from New York, are incorrect. The books of the treasurer's office have been in the governor's charge since that time, but Mr. Poland continued at the head of the deoartineut until le uoved by the govern or's action yesterday. The formal notifi cation of his suspension was received by Mr. Noland in the coventor's office at the capitol at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon, there being pre-ent bc-'des Gov. Francis, Mr. Inland Mr. C. C. Maffit, chairman of the demociai-c s'-ie central committee; John H Overall- vice president of the Si. X.onis board of police commissioners, ana Attorney Genea 1 John M. Wood. The office of :he i easurvr of the slate of Mis souri is now ab?olu;e'v in the control of Gov. Fiancis, end when its doors were opcn-d this morn lug Mr. Poland, for the fiiSt lime suce his election to office, bad no more husiuos there than i: private c tV.en of the state. In addition to suspending the Treasurer Gov. Francis stated that he bad decided to bring quo warranto proceedings H the Supreme Court to ou.t Mr. Noland from office. The court will m?et next Monday. The siae will be lepreieutcd by Attorney General Wood. Mr. Noiand had nothing to say for pub lication on ihe question of defending the action which will be bruu -lit against him. He'takes a cheerful view of the situation, and expresses the belief that the quo war-i-jtito pr jceedings and the suspension are not significant when taken in connection with the examination of his books which the Governor has heeu mkPg. He is not afiected by the presumption thU ;.!e Gov ernor's action may be the result of discoveries unfavorable to him, and ra cists in ihe statement that the books ars perfectly straight, and that the Governor's reports will so stale. Gov. Francis, while hi 7oez not s?.y thai the court proceedings are the legitimate outcome of lheiuvesli;.a ion, admits hai he has discovered "certain in egu la: ities." Just what these irregularities are he will not explain until the examination has been completed, which may not b for sev pr.;l davs. Mr. Xo aud's fiiend claim that, r nroner invedi'-a'ion of the books and accounts of bis office can not be made wi'hin the short space of lime which the ... t itm . Govci nor has been at wors. xney ciauu that a week's more time is absolutely nec essary to do justice to the Treasurer, as all of the accounts must be gone over to pre pare a correct report. Ex-Gov. Albert P. Morehouse, C. C. Maf filt, John H. Overall and State Auditor J. M. Seibert arrived here last night on the midnight train. To-day tbey were closeted with Gov. Francis and Secretary cf State Leseur, at difierent times, presumablyfcon sidering the rumors about the alleged shortage in the accounts of the state treas urer. The little town is full of ail manner of damaging reports about the subject, which is absorbing everybody's attention, but definite and positive inforaia'ion from a reliable source can not be obtained. If there is a shortage none of the stae offi cials will admit it, and Mr. Noland him self strenuously denies all reports to that eflenL. Mr. J. S. Flcmming, the Jelfcson City banker, who is on Roland's bond, is th. source to whom most of the damaging rumors can be traced. He is apparentlv satisfied in his own mind that the accounts are not Biraight, but thus far has given no authority for his statements. Gov. More house, Attorney General Wood, State Sec retary Lesueur, C. C. Maffitt, John H. Overall and State auditor Seibert say that they haye no information on the subject which they consider tiustworihv, and in sist that in the fact of Mr. Noland's denials nothing short of the governon's report can be taken as final. Mr. Flemings places the amount of the deficit at $30,000 and a rumor to that efiect, which emanates from htm, is believed to be the foundation of the reports against the state treasurer. The common talk around the Madison House is that the shortage will come to exactly $32,000, but no one seems to care to father'such a statement. And probably the most talked ot lcature ot tne case 13 a storv that the delegation which came up from St. Louis last night, and who are be lieved to represent the bondsmen, were pre pared to make ood any slioriage mat might appear as the result of the govern or's examination, but as the fact of a short age has not -vet been established, they re fuse to discuss the matter, and admit noth ing about the action taken at the St. .Louis mcetine. The sum which it is stated has been subcribed by the bondsmen i placed at various figures between S25.O0O and S35.000. Got. Francis was seen at the mansion at 9;Sft o'clock last night. He made the following statement concerning his action in suspending the state treasurer yester day. "At 5 o'clock this afternoon I formally notified the state treasurer ot his suspen Kinn from office. The notification was rnn rhed in the following language: "E. T. Noland, treasurer of the 3tate of Missouri. Sir You are hereby suspended from the office of slate treasurer of Mis Knnri under the provisions 01 articles 1 ana 2, chapter 164, of the Revised Statutes 0 18S9. . It. Feaxcis, Governor." "The statute makes the suspension man rlatnrv in certaiH cases. It reads that 'whenever the treasurer shall willfully fail to make a monthly report to the governor, or when it shall appear that such report is .aisc, or that the treasurer has failed to d2 ! posit the slate money as required by law, or hap drawn out ot any depository qx ine stale's funds, except as provided by law, "hen, in any such case, he shall be immedi suspended by the governor and hii IS ; office taken in charge as provided by law, and upon prcof of any such otiense he shall forfeit his office, and the attorney general shall take immediate steps, undrr direction of the governor, to have said officer removed by quo warranto proceedings in the supreme court of the state. Under that sec tion the Treasurer has been suspended. The examination which T have been mak ing since last Friday has made clear, it appears to me that irregularities exist, con sequently I have acted according to the statute." "What are these irregularities, Gover nor I can't snecifv the irregularities, be- caue they might not prove to be irregu larities." "Is J here a shortage ?" 'There armeaia Lo be : hut if it should he it will be small, and of such proportions He would not hurt ihe bondsmen." Gov. Francis lata last night appointed the following gentlemen as the comm'ttee to examine thd hooks of the Treasurer : Cha. Parsons, St. Louis ; Win. H. chics, Kansas City ; and Fiuis Marshall, of Un ionville. J fleson City. Mo., March 6. The corn mi nee appointed by Gov. Francis to ex amine into the condition of the stale treas. ury has beun to arrive. Mr. W. II. Chick, vice president of the Nttional bank of Kansas City, came in yesterday afternoon. Mr. Charles Pasons, of St. Louis, is ex necled to-day, and Mr. Fijis Marshall ol Unionville will be here to-night. This committee is composed cf men eminent in tne financial world, and who have the en tire confidence of the public. Mr. Click has been for many years a banker at Kansas City and vots the dem ocratic ticket. Mr. Parsons is not only president of the Stte Saying bsnk, but is president of thu American bauKers' asso ciation, and hi politics is a Dromiue.U republic tn. Mr. Marshall is the National bank exarniuer for Missouri and a demo crat. A telegram ws received from Mi. Marshal ye-terday morning, announcing that he could not serve on the rotnmil ee without the consent of the comptroller of the currency, and it ia supposed he has uirtaned oujnt, f .r ibis afoiooon ne notified the Governor that he would ariive to-night. Thescone of the examination to be ma-'e d- this commitlee will r.ot inae be limied to any period o time. It will simply be their duty to ascertain how much money is in ihe frens ury and how much monev ouuht to there, and report accordingly. This labor ivill not, it is believed, consume more than two days' time, and therefore a report will be expected by Saiuiday. Some expe dition U necessary by reason of the fact ihat the Supreme Court will be in session next Monday, and the Governor and Aitoruey-Gecsra' ar: desrey.us of hayi g matters in snape to present lo the couU. The Governor stated lo day there hu. ben no new developcments in thocrse. IL had a long conference with Mr. Chick this morning, but beyond that no'.hirig hitd been done. Ihe treasury has been closeu for tweutv four hours, but will be reopened to morrow in charge of the governor and tht txamining board. Mr. Nowland still -declines to be- inter viewed farther than to say that there is no deficiencv. He denies emphatically the published slories about nis losing money at poker, ? n 1 says he never bought an option in his life. There is naturally much sym- pathv for Mr. Noland, as he had been con- nected with the treasury department since 1S7-1. and has reared a large family in Jefierson City. He has been a generous, kindly man, and during his resiuence oeie has been at all times above suspicion. It I is not surprising, therefore, that local sym- universal. 1 Some of the gentlemen connected with the meeting of Mr. NolandJs bondsinen hi St. Louis last Saturday are resenting the criticism which followed their refusal to be interviewed at that time. They say it was unfair to haye denied them their con- siitulional right to keep their mouths shut On mat Occasion.

But Governor Francis blocked the game and refused to allow any white- washing. The result of this delerml-jed etnn rl nf tha onvprasr'fi comDletelv unset all plans, and has practically knocked the last prop Irom unaer tne treasurer. It is firmly believed that to a certain extent Treasurer Noland is being crucified for other people's sins. He will probably talk when the attorney general commences proceedings against him,- which will occur as soon aB the committee reports, and, if it turns out he is the only one that has doue wroDg, there are a number of parlies here that will be surprised. When Mr. Noland does talk for publication, there will oe some very interested readers here. The governor ccme. into the treasurer's office at 10 o'clock yesterday morning. He discussed some unimportant correspond- ence with Cashier Wllkerson for a few minutes, and then wrote the following notice: "I have taken charge of the state treas- urv unaer bwuuu woo ml uic awmku Statutes of 1880. All checks agaiast etate funds will be signed by me until farther notice, D. E. Francis, Governor." Tue governor was greatly annoy eA in miking his investigation by the new de pository law. The surplu- funds of the state are held by six hanks, the Franklin, of St. Louis: the Exchtng and birst National, ot Jeflerson Citv; the Union National, First National and Kansas Ciy State bank, uf Kansas City, ihe surplu of fund on the 1st of March amounted lo over $1,500,000 ami interest is piid up on daily balance. ISo pos-sibie error was dis covered in this matter. Until Treasurer Noland makes his state ment, it will probaitly never be known ju-t where all of the money went to or what it went for. He still maintains that the money cau be found in the treasury, and here there should be a more thorough ex planation of the repealed expression of opinion ftom stale officials and uondhmen ihat ihey believed the govenors invest iga tion would reveal the fact ihal no deficit existed. Thev reckoned a'l the lime with out counnns the governor in. Ihey were all aware of the tnortage aud it is not to be doubled thit the bondsmen attempted o mske it up. The s quel proves th.it Governor Francis was doing Jus own thinking. He went upon the theory that it was useless to try 10 place a certain sum of money in the treasury without t-hoxvmg where it came from, and withuiit ihe same being charged upon ihe au'iilor a book. This is the straw that broke ihe camel V ! ick. The Governor assumed that if thtiv is a shortage his investigation must show so, aud then is the time to notify t.u. bondsmen and prepare the way to make the state's loss good. This was an entire change of programme from what was expected and the result can be better imagined than described. The commitlee appointed will lake ihe auditor's books ad ascertain the exact amount the treasury is charged with in the various funds aud in conclusion ihey wii call on the governor as acting treas urer to show ihe condition of the treasury. He will then in turn make the coinmiuet report the basis of au official communi cation lo the attorney general selling forth in detail what irregularities and defects exist. Upon this information the attor ney general will commence quo warranto proceedings in the supreme court to the end that a writ of ousier may be issued The power of the governor to suspend an elective o3icer is questioned by Mr. Nolaud's friends. Attorney General Wood informed a .epoi ter yesterday that he had exmiued the law lelatiog lo the sut ject, and was cleaily of .he opinion tu.t ihe governor had not erceedtd his authoriiy in this i5pect, then-fore the ecfre pro ceedings we.e aulho -17 d by l-.iw. General Wood also sail! he would C-uj : en ihe quo warranto proceedings a an!..-. . notified by the governor. There is so e ill feeling over the inves tigation among Mr-No'and;s f rio ids. It is said thai ev ry c.ie cf Mr. Noland's bondsmen, wi:h the axcep'iou of J S. Fleming, was opro-.e I to Govei ?or Fran cis' uommaliou, and 1'ieie is some spite work soroiwhete, but the common verdict is lh.it the end jiu.iSied ihe means. SUimciU xt Rzv.

Taney Ci y, a little town about five miles from Forsythe, the pies nt country seat, became th? strong, s aspirate for the honors, and at last the hunt became nairwea aown to those two cities. Numerously signed pettions were ?ent mi to the county . . . 1 i! i A clerk praying ior an eiecuuu m cide this que tion, hut the counfy tourt concluded t at if there was any thing :one it would be by themselves, and the resalt was that the wLole year has been wasted in getting icady to d cide the ma' ter by 'he full bench. The greater the delay the moic difficult became the decision, for the judges saw that they had a light on their hands whichever way they voted. The old jeal jusies broke outufesh and th-re was a ceriainty of a bloody light as s- on r.s tlie de isicn was made. About two we-ks cjo the matter was to be bTought to a fermiat;on, and an immense crowd gathered at I)isylhe for the purpose of hear iug lliedscisin of the judjes. But heie came an jiher dissapointmenr. The judge from the oasierc paj t of the couuty was absent, "fie siut wa that sickness would prevent hs et'endance.

He knew that on his decision tested the whole ca?e, a. hs ballot would break the tie He had studied the matter ail over, aud ciak to the conclusion that his life wai of mote consequence to him than was the county seat to the people, aud theiefore he would slay it home and let them fight it out as it hr?t pleased the contending pasties. Those who remember the circum stances of the last two years in South ern Missouri know tbat in Taney toun'y there are two non-polhkal paities which have been in opposition for yen?. Thre are ihe Bald Knob scis ziid the Anti-Bald Knobbers. Thee lwo parlies have taken up ihe fight acd are at war over the location. This being the case, it can be readily seen why ihe judge was at a lo? lo I;uow hov to please both parties. Ou the last day that was feet for the on veniog of the counly court the town was full of meo, representing both factions, ano when it was learned (hat the judge would not brave the people and fat his vole for either place, the members on both sides br gannllingthenijelves up on the while whiskey, wjich is only to be found in tub seclioD. The re?ult was "hat -le towa was soon full of mea who were fighting dt uc k. A dozen or so ordinary fights on the stieeta occured, but it remained for the coming of night tobrmg a cul mination of toe trouble. One of the doggeries, which by courtesy is called a "grocer" was full of a rough, push ing, swearing crowd of men who were es ited over the question of spending 3,000. Suddenly a blow was struct md instanllv the room was converted iuto a bedlam. The lights were put out and, in the darkness, the biting and iiousins that went on was some thing fearful. By mutual consent pistoh .e3md o be u.booed, but A. kiiivs aid tceih were brought into pi y wth terrible effect. When the si ruggle died out from sheer exhaus iim ou te part of the combatans and the lights were brought in, the rcene that predentcd itself was hor rib'e Blood covered everything. Men in al-st-gsof stupr lav around the floor. .Faces in all stages of muti lation were seen, and the whole place had the appearance of a slaughter pen. No one as killed, but the wounds were of such a serious nature that it will be mauy weks before the participants of the free fight will fully recover from the effects of their debauch. Bui the county seat ques tion is still undecided. Tn-y county has a population of n,000, and its indebtedness h Sl$, UU0. As the proportion of taxpayers! lo the population s sm;ul, this I avss: the county in a very bid condition! hnancially. Uuuoty warrants are held at 40 cen's on .he $1 an.t haul to sell at that price. As there ?re e'jrht men held for murder in the liist degree and seven for second degree, all of which cases are to be tii-d at the comics session of the circuit court, it is estimated '.hat the county warrants will soon be worse t'tan valueless to the holders.
