POINT OF LAW AN ISSUE
Difference of Opinion as to Amount
of Various Funds Official Should
Place In Depository Banks.
Bank Holds $24,434.24.
BOISE, Idaho. May 2. (Special.) Today
Governor Gooding made public the report
tendered to him by "W. S. Chaney, State
Bank Commissioner, of the condition of
tlie State Treasurer's office. Mr. Chaney
made a complete Investigation of the of
fice, upon request of the Governor, and
the report Is on the condition of the
office and the booKs of the State Treas
urer at the close of business on April 24.
The report is In much detail and covers
a number of long type-written pages. It
Bives cash on hand, a report upon the
bonds furnished by depository banks for
funds deposited therein, verified balances
due from banks in the collection ac
counts (which accounts are not carried
on the general ledger of the State Treas
urer), and the balances due from de
pository banks to March 31, last.
There are certain endowment funds
which the law does not give the Treas
urer the right to deposit. They must
be held in the vault. The Treasurer
Insists that he may deposit certain en
dowment funds but not all. Of the en
dowment funds, he says he must hold
J268.S42.30. The total of all the en
dowment funds is $398,719.94. The ac
tual amount of cash In the vault is
found to be $266,1 97.69. According- to
the report, if the Treasurer's construc
tion of the law is correct regarding
endowment funds, he lacks about J27J0
of havinqr enough cash on hand. If his
construction is wrong, lie should have
in his vault, according to law, an addi
tional sum of S131.522.25.
The report shows the Treasurer, on
April 23, had a "collection account" in
three Boise Banks amounting to: Boise
City National. $31,825.57: Bank of Com
merce, $41,5ii8.93; Capital State (now closed;,
$24,434.21. There is no provision in the
Idaho statutes for collectiQn Recounts.
On April 1 the report shows the Treasurer
liad on deposit as collection accounts in
the Roise National about $76,000 and in
the Bank of Commerce over $2,O0O.

FINDS MAN UNDER BED
Voting Woman's Nightly Search Is
Because his brain was so befuddled from
numerous potations that he couldn't tell
his own room Joe Dowles fell into the
clutches of the police last night, and
rests as comfortably as adverse condi
tions will permit in a cell in the City
Jail, under the suspicion of being a
thief. Dowles was found under the bed
of Miss Anna Iakkon in the Wisconsin
Hotel, at 565 Hood street. The discovery
of a man under her bed startled the
young woman so that she shrieked and
fainted. Her shriek brought Alex Swan
son, who occupies the next room, to
her assistance. Swanson grabbed the
man and held him until the arrival of
Investigation proved that a gold watch
valued at $30 and $3.75 In money were
missing from Miss Lakkon's bureau. The
room was also in great disorder, as if
it had ben looted. The watch could not
be found. In Dowles' pockets, however,
was found exactly $3.75. The man. was
plainly incapacitated from liquor.
From his mutterlngs it was deduced
that he had imagined he was in his own
home, and had sought refuge under the
bed, fearing the consequences of meet
ing his wife in his Intoxicated condi
tion. How he happened to get into the room
Is a mystery the police are trying to

on the charge of bribery in connection
with a trolley franchise.
The Jury was out only two minutes.

unexpected In view of the lack of corro
borative evidence, the speed with which
the jury rendered a unanimous ballot
proved disconcerting to the prosecution.
This, makes the second acquittal In
the series of three trials. The jury was
out but two minutes, and then returned
with a yerdict of "not guilty as
The defendant had been under a great
nervous strain during the trial, as the

the turn of events.
On this occasion. Ford was acquitted
of the charge of bribing Daniel Coleman,
a Supervisor under the Sehmitz-Rucf
regime, when the trolley franchise deal
was put through. Twelve other Indict
