THAT INSURANCE CONTROVERSY
The Text Citxo Itcforc the Supreme Court
I. ! holy to Ho Hotly Contested.
LINCOLN , Neb. , Nov. 17. The In-
; al controversy as to the liability to
.ho state of the insurance companies
that paid fees to Eugene Moore as
nndltnr In becoming more complicated
and the test case now pending before
ho supreme court promises to be hot
ly contested on both sides bcforo a de
cision Is allowed to stand. In the
liricf and argument of the defendant
in the case of the State of Nebraska
against the Home Insurance company ,
filed in the supreme court , three
points are raised by which It is hoped
lo relieve the Insurance companies ot
all further liability.
The argument opens with the asser
tion that the brief of the state con
tained no positive argument in sup
port of Its claim and that the attor
ney general preceded upon the as
sumption that because Moore was not
convicted under section 124 of the
criminal code , as auditor of public ac
counts , of embezzlement of the insur
ance fees iu question , and because the
sureties upon his ofllcial bond are not
liable to the state for his defalcation
with regard to money which he , as
auditor , had no right to receive.
The llrst of the three points raised
by the Homo Insurance company la
that under the constitution of Nebras
ka the auditor had no right to per
form services for the defendant and
oltcr Insurance companies unless the
fees therefor were paid In advance
into the state treasury. The second
point is that the state Is estopped to
claim from the defendant insurance
company compensation for services of
the auditor which he could not legally
perform unless the fees therefore were
paid in advance into the state treas
ury.
