Tho former county troasurnr reported a balance on hand of $899,958.80 and tho bank statements show a balance on hand of $905,011.85. It Is 'believed that most of this can be settled easily, The larger 'balances shown In some of the-country banks Is believed due to the fact that taxes collected recently and not turned vor to the troasuror have been credited to the county account. In moat Instances only a tew cents or dollars difference exists. The county commissioners have contracted with J. E. (laton & Co., of Topeka for an audit of the treasurer's office from October 1, 1920, when tho last audit was completed, up to date This audit is to cost not to exceed $2,400 and must be completed by Sep tomber 1.

I had all kinds of faith In Mr. Grundy, In Mr. Baddeley. Ot course we knew wo had somo paper that was bad; tako for Instance the Rust loan, that was a bad x loan and we tried to release •some of the other questionable paper when we took charge. I still bolievo In the future ot this bank and will pay my assessment and take new stock lu seeing the reorganization of the bank. This instance hasn't changed my faith In humanity. 1 think with Mr. Williams our officers, should be heavily bonded and know' that In tho futuro the affairs of the back will he more closely watched after." Rosier Tells of Investigation. W. l>aoy Hosier, secretary of the board made a littlo more detailed explanation Into what the directors had found out which had beon previously touched upon by speaker 's. He spoke of the amount of questional paper which had been cast aside by the bank examlnor. "Some of this is redoemable," ho said; "Some can be secured at once and become ifllt Sedge loans. After tho $110,000 has been charged off, coming from capital and surplus, 1 ibelleve there Is $50,000 that can be secured within a week leaving $60,000 or assessments. This must be all cleared up bofore a reorganisation can tako placo. Than new stock mu3t bo subscribed, and re-organliation made under tho old charter. "I Would bo willing to make the voluntary stock assessment and take out now stock if I was assured tho new mau In charge was all right, juBt as you feel. Will Realize on Much Paper.

Wo found a $5,000 note which wo considered uncollectuble. The man giving that note came to town yesterday, came to the bank and voluntered the information'that he owed the bank the amount, and that he alno cwed another 'note of 311,C00 r'f which the bank had no cognizance. Ho raid that within 15 daya ho might be ali 'o to clear up all ^of his indebtedness and if not than within 0 or 9 months -but that ho would pay what ho owed the bank." Another stockholder who spoke wae John Enns, of Innian, a banker himself. "It looks to mo that there Is only one thing to do and that is re-organlr.0. ! would like to. I want to suggest that It might bo a better plan that when these notes, which must bo checked off in ro-organtzatlon, are collected, that this money "Tbo given back In dividends. It would help In selling stock." (Dr. Welch, concurred in this Suggestion later on.) Henry Shears said he had 25 shores ot the city, the reward offered now is $1,250. To this latest contribution.! 1 * 23 $760 had proviously beon subscribed, $500 by the directors and $250 by the state banking department.

VET ORGANIZATIONS AGREE ON PROGRAM .Probably the most traveled hat in the world honored HutchinBon with a visit, this morning when Santa iFo train No. 49 stopped for a short while. The boys of tho local express office had the honor of entortainlng the distinguished visitor and seeing that it started safoly on toward its destination! ~ The hat, which was of the felt variely, bore evidence of long and continuous travel. It was covered with tags showing where it had been and also telling where it was to be returned. Tho hat was started on its long journey by the San Francisco lodge dT the express employees union, and ono of the tags stated that It must bo returned there ly Sept. 9. According to the tags on tho hat, it had boon to St. Paul, Omaha, Chicago, Kansas City, Ogden, Utah, Memphis, Tennessee, Arkansas City, Kansas, and Jersey CIO, New Jersey. While In Jersey City the hat attended tho Wll- lanl-Flrpo fight according to tho tag.

SOLD MUCH MOVIE STOCK BUT MONEY IS ALL GONE saying we wanted no favors only the legal rights of our clients." On tho same day, Mr. McAdoo said, ho wrote a letter to Chairman Hurley representing tho incident. His letter, ho declared, characterized the Offer as a "favor," as a "offenslvo and surprising suggestion." Justice Stafford admitted part of the letter containing this reference, but excluded other portions. ^ Mr. McAdoo said his recollection of details of the negotiations was vaguo through the lapse of four years. After John Ilarton Payne succeeded Chairman Hurley In August 1919, he recalled, the board gave him a hearing. DlA't Understand Position. "What WHS tho position of the gov* eminent at that meeting?" asked Mr. Lambert. "I never got clearly the position of •tho government," Mr. McAdoo replied. "My impression Is that somo other basis of settlement was suggested, under which the company should undertake to buy tho vessels from trie government." Mr. McAdoo testified that his firm took the Virginia company's case for a fixed feo of $50,000 which was received "ultimately," in two Installments. Counsel then went Into othor business relations of tho McAdoo tirm with the Morse interests relating to fees onx tonnage secured for tho United States transport company.
