WILL ADVERTISE FOR BIDS Commissioners Place thn Don&los County Bonds Upon the Market. DROKER3 TO BE GIVEN PLENTY OF TIME -Vlloivccl Until Dccpnthpr 1 In Sntimlt Tliclr IlIdH for IflSSO.OOO Worth of Exposition nml I li\K llunilii. The county commissioners yesterday took the first steps toward Rolling the fund ing and exposition bonds , voted at the late election , Commissioner Klcrstoad Intro duced tli5 following resolution , which was unanimously adopted : ItcBolvril , That the county clerk bo nnd la hereby limtructod to receive bids up to De cember l | 1897 , for the J1SO.OOO funding bonds nnd the $100,000 exposition bonds , its author ized by the vole of the people nt the elec tion held November 2 , 1&97. It Is believed that by bringing the bonds to the attention of the public at once , plenty of bids will bo received by the data men tioned , The bonds will thus b disposed of early and the money will be available. The board did not order the bonds printed since the official canvass of the vote had not yet boon reported. The board also failed to net any tl.no for a committee of the whole meeting to lay plans for the expenditure of the exposition npiro | < prlutlon. This was also delayed on account of the fact that the result of the canvass was not yet made known. From th : figures now available , the ofllclnl count will show that both propositions carried with a fair sized majority. On next Tuesday at 9 o'clock tbo cu nil i oners ami to icitnty attorney will meet Receiver Thomas H. McCaguo of the German Sivlngs bank In order to reach some sort of Hcttlcment over the dispute regarding the $19,000 of county funds that are tied up In the bin ! : . This was done upon a written ton request from the receiver , similar to ono made a year ago , upon which no action was taken. The receiver claims that there Is In the nelKhhorhool t > f $40uOO In , taxes which should ho returned to the bank. For some tlmo before It closed the bank dealt largely in buying property at delinquent tax sales. Of the property thus bought some J40.000 worth has been or will be declared Illegal by the courts and the sales will , therefore , bo set aside. The greater part of this prop crty consists of poor farm lots. IJie receiver maintains that the amount must be paid back by the county , and , therefore , has refused undOr Ilistructlon of the court , to turn over to the county any dividends duo on the county's deposK. VIEWS OF COMMISSIONERS. The county commissioners admit that this amount of money should ho refunded , but they maintain that the iccolver must look to other parties for the greater part of It. Of tliu $40,000 the county received somewhere between one-fourth and ono-thlrd , the bal ttiico being turned over to the city for city taxes and special iiBsessments. The comnils Dinners are willing to give the receiver credit for the actual amount the county secured but they say If they gave more they wouli be guilty of divergence of funds. Therefore they insist that the lecelver must look to the city and other parties for the remainder. commissioners ate supported by a re cent decision from Judge Dickinson. In a suit recently decided ho held that the county could be asked to refund only such portlot of the amount icallzed from tax siles us 1 actually iccelvcd.The rcma'ndcr ' , which was turned over to the city for city taxes , must bo recovered from the city. The county clerk was authorized to cm ploy mi additional clrrk for four weeks a a salary of $75 a month to rewrite the as Bossmeut rolls of South Omaha property to correspond with a recent opinion of the county attorney. This was that South Omaha was entitled to four asscssorshlps , and , ac cording to this , four assessors were elcctei at thu last election. ' In the past all o South Omaha was In ono district and bu ono assessor was elected. A request from Register of Deeds Elsassc to employ six additional clerks to bring the records of the office to date by the time hit ) term expires was referred to thu llnanc committee for Investigation. The ofllca I about eight weeks behind. The additions recorders will bo pi Id by the piece. The petition of the residents of Benson asking that their town bo Incorporated as : 'Village , was referred to the finance com nilttce. The quarterly report of the register o deeds for the three months ending Scptem ber 30 , 1897 , showed that the collections fo the period w-rc $2,122.83 , and the disburse menta , $1,707.50 , leaving a surplus of $415.35 According to the monthly report of Super Intcndent Wright of the poor farm , the mini ber of the linrutca at the institution In created six during the month s > t October ther * being 113 there now.
