The witness was aeVed If the records c !

that- the records did not disclose any receipt

p. first hour of the afternoon session yes-
\y was taken up by the cross-examjna-
tjqu'of Export Helblg hy Attorney Whcdou ,
xyjjo attacked the qualification of the witness
fti an expert accountant and attempted to
"llfOiQ the testimony given by the witness
* tbu result of his examination of thu treas-
uior's books. TliU attempt was not success
ful , the witness retaining his self-possession
throughout the crossfire of questions pro
pounded by the attorney.
Tha iieJt wlttios called In rebuttal by the
state was Kr'il A. Archar , an expert ac
countant employed In the offlce of the state
auditor. He testified that ho Is now em
ployed to check up the various county treas
urers and make a report to the auditor. Ho
said lu had been employed to assist In check
ing up the books and records of the state
treasurer. Regarding his experience as an
accountant , the witness said he had been
deputy county clerk of York county and had
been employed In auditing and checking
public accounts up to the time ho was em
ployed by the slate auditor.
The wltnei'3 was then Interrogated regard
ing the expenditures from the permanent
school fund and corroborated' the evidence
given by Helblg ius to the total of the ex
penditures from this fund. He was asked testate

The attention of the witness was called to
the draft In payment of the bonds of Otcc
county , amounting to $85.000. He stated that
thn amount of the draft was charged against
the permanent school fund. Ho also stated
that the Snundcro county bonds were paid
for out of the permanent school fund. The
witness further stotpd that the $201.000

the wllnca ? . and hu was cross-oxamliiqd by
Attorney Whedon. The .erosg-examlnallon
did not ehaneo Mr. Archcrd'o testimony In
any material particular.
Ilobert Taylor of Omaha was the next
witness. Ho said he had been employnd
as an accountant with railroads In various
parts of the country for the past twenty-
eight yeurs , the last two years having been
spent In the employ of the H. & M. and
Union Pacific. He said he had been cm-
ployed to audit the books and records of the
Btate treasurer and auditor from April 20
to June 7. thin year.
The witness testified that ho had exam
ined the accounts of Hie treasurer as shown
by the records In the auditor's ofllcf. Tha
evUi'iiee given by this witness was merely
corroborative of that of Experts Helblg and
Archer , showing the same condition of the
receipts , expenditures and balances In Ihc
mineral fund and the permanent oehool
The state then called Treasurer J. n.
Meservo and asked him what conversation
hu had had with Hartley weanling the
amount of the state general fund In his
hands at the elowj of business on the last
day of Hartley's term , January 6 , 1807.
The witness stated that Hartley submitted
s statement to him at that time , which had
been furnished by the auditor for the pur
pose of settlement. Ho produced the state
ment and stated that Hartley told him at
the lime that the statement represented
the money In the various lunds , and also
the securities he had to be turned over to
( ho witness.
The state then offered In evidence that
portion of the statement showing the amount
In the general fund and also the amount In
the permanent school fund. Tb offer was
received over the objection of the defense ,
the statement showing balances In these
funds in the same amounts testified to by
the experts as being eh own by thu treas
urer's records , as follows : In the gener.il
15-53' Permanent school
- ' fund ,
, . .
The witness was then asked how much
money had been actually turned over to
him by the defendant In the permanent
school fund.
This was objected to by the defense on the
giound that the settlement had already been
adjudicated by the supreme court
County Attorney Haldrlge said this evi
dence was pertinent as rebutting the con
tention of the defense that Hartley's private
money had been used for the benefit of the
The defense objected that the admission of
this testimony would bring Into this case the
question of the final settlement of Hartley
with lite successor without allowing him anv
opportunity for defence.
Attorney General Smyth said the Plate
would offer the testimony for the sole pur-
poaa of showing that the Otoe and Saumlenr.
county bonds were paid for out of thi- per
manent school fund and not out of the In
dividual funds of the defendant.
Attorney Mahoney Insisted on his objection
claiming that It Involved bringing into till'
case the matter of the settlement of the de
fendant with his successor , which had no
connection with the case at bar , and also be
cause the transaction In question occurred
In Lancaster county , and 'whether the amount
turned over agreed with the balance shown
by his statement or whether it did not agree
had no bearing upon this case.
After a lengthy discussion Judge Halter
ruled that the question should he put In a
different form and the attorney general asked
the witness whether Hartley had paid to
him moro money In the permanent school
fund than was called for by his statement
The defense opposed this question , but the
objection was overruled , and the witness re
plied that he did not at thai time or at any
other time turn over more money than was
called for by the report.
The wltnetH was not cross-examined by the
The state then offered In evidence the four
oheets produced by Hanker Hanvood , containIng -
Ing the account In the First National of Lin
coln of Hartley as state treasurer. This Is
the account which the defense offered In evi
dence and then , after the court had recon
sidered Ita ruling excluding It and notified
the defense that the accounl 'would be re
ceived In evidence , the defense declined to
offer 4 liu account again.
Mr. 'Mahoney objected to the admission of
the account saying that wheu ho ( list offered
It ho was prepared to show why It had been
opened , but the state had objected and the
defcrse. had > been unable toehrtw this , and he
claimed that It was shutting out the defense
by admitting the account at this time.
The objection was overruled after the offer
had been modified t > o as to cover only such
part of Iho accounl as WBH related to cer
tain checka introduced by thu defense ,

that It had completed Its case with the ex

The National iMucatlotul nssoclntlon
which meets at Milwaukee next month and
which Omitlui Is trying to got for 1SOS. Is
tlio largest convention which this city has
yet sought to bring here. The effort to bring
tlio association to Omaha has been taken up
actively by the teachers lithe state ns well
ns by thcue In tlio city , ami they hnvo had the
hearty co-opcratlon of the business Interests
of Omaha. Preliminary steps to secure the
ronvonllon hnvo been taken , niul the delcgn-
tlon from Nebraska will bo armed with all the
proper documents to formally Invite the as
sociation to conic to this city In tlio exposi
tion year.
This association , the strongest organization
of teachers In the world , has been In exist
ence for nearly halt a century , though Its first
president , 1'rof. Salmon Ulchards , In still liv
ing in the city of Washington. The associa
tion led n precarious life for many years , but
nt the meeting held In MndlsonVls. . In 1881 ,
was finally placed upon n firm footing , finan
cially and othnrwlse. Themes W. Hlckiicll
was president a. ' , this the first of the grout
meetings. Since that time thu attendance
1ms varied from 5,000 to 20,000 , the meeting
at Toronto In 1S91 having reached fully the
latter llgurc. The coming mealing at Mil
waukee promises to equal If not surpass the
Toronto meeting. Tile association now brings
each j-ear lo .some Inrgo ( a small city can nu
longer entertain It ) 10.000 to 15,000 comfort
able , Intelligent people , who pay their bills
nnd enjoy themselves much after the fashion
of ordinary human beings , n crowd of people
who show wide departure from the tradi
tional "schoolma'am" and "schoolmaster"
Omaha will provide as a hall for tha largo
meetings the Den of the Knights of Ak-
Sar-Uen , with seating capacity for 10,000.
This is a better ball for meetings than the
association has had , except the hall which
Milwaukee will provide for the coming meet
ing ; also suitable halls for all section and
committee meeting's.
A mass meeting was held some two weeks
ago , at which a committee was appointed ,
consisting of Superintendent Pear-M , Mr.
Victor Uosewater , Mr. John 13. Utt , Mrs.
F. M. Ford and Mrs. Jennie 13. Keysor ,
which was to make detailed arrangements
secure a definite formal proposition , and re
port nt an adjourned meeting. The work
Is about completed , and another mass meetIng -
Ing will be held Tuesday , Juno 22 , at which
the committee will report , and committees
will be appointed to attend the convention
at Milwaukee and present Invitations of
the varlouo bodies.
In dlscuss'ing tne prospects for ( securing
tha convention Su'pcglutcndent Pearso saiii :
"The afsocuilioirfnteds to be assured of
adequate hotejjnccummodation. Omaha can
give thLs asauraiicj. } \ canvaia ol a few of
the leading hotels chowv capacity for 2,600

smaller hotelsr-'anfl those In the- residence

houses of the clly' , > and as many more in pri
vate homea wlilch'Kvould \ > s available. Add
to this the Increased accommodation ! ? which
will bo provide tT .foe the txposlllon year and
no trouble need "bo feared In caring prop
erly for the .
"Tho western railroads have always been
the .best Jrlenits" the .association. .Their
courtesy and 'hbcriillly In the way of rates ,
in condition of'-tlckcis ; and In limits for the
return journey , have been unfailing , and sat
isfactory arrangements In these respects maybe
bo counted upon as a foregone conclusion
for the Omaha meeting.
"The city Is attractive In July. A view
fiom any commanding point , like the High
school tower , snows the best residence dis
tricts embowered In trees and commodious
homes , and charming grounds are found in
every direction from the business center.
There the fine blocks of wholesale , business
and olllce buildings stamp Omaha as a met
ropolitan city. The streets , well lighted ard
paved , are traversed in every direction by
electritT cars , which make access easy to
every part of the city and Its suburbs.
"Omaha has been" little late In formally
entering the contest , but now being in , ex
pects to give a good account of herself.
"Los Angeles will present an invitation ,
hut the principal competitor seems likely to
be Salt Lake City. This is a pleasant place ,
but for several reasons It Is not believed the
association will wish to meet there In 1898.
Salt Lake City Is not likely to change. It
will be the same in 1S9S that it Is In 1807 ,
or as It was in 1895.
"Tho thousands who go to California this
year , tempted by the phenomenally low fares
offered to the Young J'eople's Society of
Christian Endeavor , and not likely to ba
offered again for years , will all , either going
or coming , stop In Salt Lake. Two years
ago the Nebraska Endcafor aitioclatlon met
In Denver nnd thousands who were there
visited Salt Lake. If the association should
go to the metiopol'o ' of the desert in 1899 ,
or 19CO , or 1901 , would not any one of them
be just as good a , year as 1SU8 ? While In
JSOS Omahu will , be at Its best , will have.
mast , attraction ? anil , will be- best cqiilppeu
to eare for the convention. It will bo
Omaha's year.
"It may bo true that some , doubtless many
of thos ? going , if tlio meeting were In Salt
Lake , would stop over In Omaha , but not
moro than one.-half or one-third as many
would go to Salt Lake as would be likely to
come to Omaha. The great bulk of the
membership of the National Endeavor asso
ciation conies from the territory within 800
miles of Omaha. The great bulk Is from the
territory lying cast of a line drawn north and
south through Omaha. Is It good public
policy to compel all those who go to travel
the additional 1,200 miles lying between

would certainly suffer In funds through de

serious , great numbers of the educators of
tha land for whom the association oxlsts and
holds Its meetings would be deprived of the

greatly Increased expense.

The Omaha 'itlMj are preparing for the
final effort to s'fWre ' the 1898 convention of
their order for Alji.i , c'tyThe grand loJgo
of the Denevolimt.'Qrder ' of Elba Is ng.irdoil

conventions ttia iVlll bo l.cld 'luring t'io
year , and same of the biggest cities l'i the
r-nmtry aru disputing with Omaha 'he ' right
to Ita entertainment. For several mouths
past the Omaha members of the order huvc
been planning to secure the pltrn for their
city and their efforts have arousu'l more
than an ordinary degree of local enthusiasm.
Aside from that they hareaiu'cccilu.1 In inter.

their plans and they have , an excellent clianto
to win out.
Detroit , Denver and Louisville are Ml
after the. convention , but Ilaltlmoro and
Philadelphia are believed to be the most for
midable rivals of Omaha. All these cities
will send special trains loaded with uni
formed Klks to the next grand lodge at
Minneapolis where thu battlu for the 1S98
convention 'will ' \ > o fought. Grand Itnpidi
( n thought to have dropped out of the rac ?
and the bulk of the delegate * who were for
that city will be likely to bo for Omaha. Down
In Texas a number of lodges have Instructed
their delegates to vote tor Omaha first , last
and all the time , and the Indications are
that the western delegates will be a unit
In favor of the Exposition city.
The local lodge expects to RO to Minne
apolis nearly 100 strong. The member. * will
wear their new uniforms and will be ac
companied by the Twctity-pecond lufnntry
band. They will travel on n special train
from DCS Molnes to Minneapolis and when
they get on the ground they will give Ihelr

Today will complete the fourteenth
month that the shipper , ! of Omaha hove
been waiting for the Kllihorn and the Union
Pacific railroads to put In the long prom
ised Lincoln rates. It will bo remembered
that now tariffs , giving lo Omaha the same
rates westward ns Lincoln enjoyed , were
Issued and were to have gone Into effect on
April 20 , 1S96. There was some opposition
to the new rates from the Lincoln mer
chants , and the roads rero enjoined from
making tlio rates effective. The Omaha
uiorchuuts allowed the matter to be pat-sed
by temporarily , accepting the promise tlut
the rate would bo put in before "a great
while. "
It Is probable that the matter will ho
taken up once moro and that within the
next ten days something definite , uno way
or the other , will be decided. The freight
rate commltteo of the Omaha Commercial
club , composed of the representatives of
fourteen of tlm principal business houses ,
has taken the matter up and resolved to
push It earnestly. Several requests have
been made for a meethiK with General Man
ager nidwell of the Klkhorn to consider the
matter , and a conference will doubtlew be
had within the next fendays. . Though the
matter has been apparently slumbering for
the past fourteen month. * , ' the Omaha mer

progress today between the Interested parlies

difficulties which have threatened a serious
wain In passenger rates In the west. A
conference was held this afternoon between
representatives of the Missouri Pacific , Santa
Ke , Oregon Short Line , Hlo Grande , Western ,
Jlurllngton and Hock Island roads , the out
come of which Is hoped to be an amicable
settlement of thu interests In dispute. It Is
said there is no likelihood of the gateway
being again closed to oil the roads but the
Union. Pacific. It has finally been decided
that whatever terms are made for one road
will apply. to all. In other words , the Union
Pacific will bo treated no hotter and no wonio

CHICAGO , June 1'J. The Omaha road has
decided to meet thn ralo of $30.50 made by
the See Line from Duluth and West fill-
perlor for the round trip between thebo
points and Chicago , Just how the Omaha
road can do this Is not easy to understand ,
as all the roads runnliiK out of Chicago to
the cast have said that they would demand
their full percentage of all the tickets H > ld
from the northern cities to Chicago. H is
said , however , that the Omaha will sell all
of the tickets possible between now and
next Tuesday and fight out later the iue ; -
tlou of divisions wllh the I'asUru loads.
This action may have the effect of opening
up the fight over again hut the balance of
the Chlcngo-St. Paul roads are walling to
see whdt the Omaha will Ret out of the di
visions , and If It In compelled to stand all
of the reduction they will take no actljn la
