became exhausted the state treas
urer was authorized to and did
tnvest reneral fund warrants in
the Industrial accident fund,
which investment would draw b
per cent interest and would con
stitute a debit ot the general fund
ni a credit ot the industrial ac
cident fund. In this manner the
necessity of returning such war
rants to the payee was avoided, as
waH the resulting incon venienc-.
and possible necessity of discount
ing these warrants at banks.
"Prior to each taxpaying period,
the general lund is always very
low and just prior to the payment
of the first half of taxes this year
the fund was depleted but by in
vesting general fund warrants in
the funds of the industrial acci
dent commission, the necessity
rising from the emergency of in
dorsing and returning1 general
fund warrants was avoided.
