QUESTIONED ABOUT MJATES Butler Says Neither He Nor Mudgett Was Enthusiastic to Make Purchase BOND MEN OFFERED LITTLE Thorp Requtst Again la Mat With Order to 'Put Question in Writing' Issuance of $400,000 worth of certificates of Indebtedness by the North Dakota capitol commission and the need of such an issue were studied Saturday by the legislative investigating committee with P. H. Butler, acting manager of the Bank of North Dakota, being examined during most of the hearing. Butler said neither he nor Col. C. F Mudgett, manager of the bank until recently were "very enthusiastic" about purchasing the certificates and that before they agreed to do anything they received an opinion from the attorney general's office. Butler reported the issue of certificates was necessary before the "contractors" would sien contracts for portions of the capitol building work. ernor George P. Shafer had reported he wanted the capitol building program completed under his adminstra-tion as the incoming administration might be unfriendly. Sen. W. O. Bangert, member of the 4nvKt.isnt.inff committee, read min utes of the capitol commission into the records that referred to the need ; of the certificate issue so the commission could take advantage of low prices on materials. Butler said he did not know whether any of the $400,000 had been used yet for that purpose. Consulted in August ntitis tniri of the Drelimlnary ar rangements for the issuance of the certificates, relating w me ;ivug-ing committee tha', as early as Au-n,ct taw. the Bank of North Dakota had been consulted concerning their purchase. He said Shafer took up the matter with the bank and reported Shafer as having told bank officials money from the certificates was needed in the comoletion of the work on the new capitoi.

Departments Suggestion Made That It Would Be Pair to Those Whose Books Are 0. K. A complete audit of all state de partments, as a result of information uncovered by investigations of affairs of two former state officials, is being considered oy Nortn oaicota state oi-fleers. The arrest of John Gammons, former state Industrial commission secretary, on charges of embezzlement, and testimony offered before a leg islative investigating committee that O. A. Praser, former adjutant general and capitol building commission member, entered duplicate travel expense vouchers against three state funds, has caused state officials to consider the advisability of auditing all other departments. Officials who are advocating the sweeping audit saia mis wouia done with the thought that since counts of some state officers have been questioned, an audit of the books of other officers should be car ried out in fairness to the officers whose books are in proper shape.
