Temple, one of the official bondsmen of Fred M. Russell, Johnson county sheriff and collector, said Wednesday the bondsmen were working on terms for a settlement of a reported $26,700 shortage hi Russell's accounts atfer the grand jury had decided against indicting him. Russell lacked this amount in his final settlement, and auditors of the state comptroller's office, in disclosing it last week said:' "This situation is caused to a great extent by Mr. Russell's desire to help the public of Johnson county by taking up all county warrants that were submitted to him even though he had no moneys belonging to the county general fund and at the time he made his settlements, he of course knew he could not use these county general warrants to settle the accounts of other funds, therefore he was unable to complete his final settlement." j The grand jury now in session made j an investigation of the alleged short- J age this week but it was announced \ that it had decided not to indict Russell. . .
