JL1T1 TREASURER REQUESTED
Petition Liberally Signed Jlr. Wright
Last of Thrtw Who Lost
Taxpayers of La Grande will be giv
en an opportunity to reimburse the
third and last party to lose public
moneys in the failure of the Farmers
& Traders National bank.
On th strength of a petition signed
bv a large number of taxpayers, the
city council last night determined to
olac on the ballot for the coming
municiDRl election the question of re
imbursing J. K. Wright, formerly
treasurer of the city of La Grande,
for money lost in the bank craBh. The
petition sets forth that In view of the
fart that the school dlBtrlct reimburs
ed A. C. Williams and the legislature
ordered Treasurer' Frawley and Sher
iff Childer8 reimbursed It is only meet
and lust that Mr: Wright should be re
lmbursed as well. The question will
he rut to a" public vote December 11
at which time the municipal tuncuuu
is held. 1
Surrenders Proof of Claim.
In the event that the voters order
the reimbursement of Mr. Wright, the
latter will surrender to the city his
proof of claims and any subsequent
dividends that might be issued from
the government will then go to the
city direct. Mr. Wright paid every
rpnt lost back to the treasurer im
mediately after th,e failure of the in
stitution. This sum amounted to $3,
4R2 as. The first dividend reduced the
trttal sum Jl.667.07 and the second
dividend Issued by the government
was for 1384.24. ' There Is left, there
fore, a total of $1,567.07 which Mr.
Wright is loser because he was a pub
lic nfflrial and could In no wise be
Warned for the loss. The city, how
ever, has at no time been "out" for
the citv treasurer was reimbursed Im
mediately and what dividends have
been paid by the government have
went to Mr. Wright. The petitioa urg
ing the placing of this question on the
ballot was large.
