ANOTHER SPRINGER LETTER MBARRASSES ITS AUTHOR Attorney General Now Says Judge Did Not Give Him Full Facts, and that Aloney Involved by En joined Warrants Cannot bo Paid Out, Contrary to Springer's Opinion. (Special to The liulletln) PKINKVHXK, July 1. Reciting thnt ho had not boon glvon nil the facts hy Judgo Springer, Attorney General Crawford has rendered hn opinion for County 'lrensnrer K. I Jordnn to the oltcct thnt tho $40,000 to $50,000 enjoined in the various suits Instituted aRnlnst tho county cannot be expended to pay accruing Indebtedness, contrnry to tho first opinion Riven the JudRo nnd which was printed In Tho liulletln lost week. Tho warrants enjoined had been registered by tho county treasurer nnd were afterwards called In by him at tho tlmo nil warrants wore adver tised durlnR the montn of May, and tho lncomltiR taxes had placed the county on a cash basis again. The act of calling In the warrants stopped the running of Interest apalnst the enjoined warrants from the date of tho call and has saved tho county much money. The attorney Roneral holds that slnco tho warrants wore called tho money was set aside to pay them whenever they should bo presented nnd that that money must be hold In readiness until the suit Is determined either for or ngnlnst the county. Un der the new deKsltory act, passed by the 1913 Legislature, tho county Is drawing 2 per cent interest on this money and will continue to do so as long as it is deemed neccssnry to hold these funds In the treasury. All warrants against the county are now being paid as fast as thej aro present ed but soon, probably durlnR July, warrants will again begin to bo reg istered for the want of funds and the county will have to pay C per cent In terest on all warrants registered un til collection of taxes begins next spring. However, It Is likely that the total sum of registered warrants for the remainder of tho year will bo as great as the sum enjoined by the suits now pondtiiR and uh Ioiir ih the county does not have to pay Interest on the enjoined sum at fi per cent until that suit Is determined, the county Is bet ter oft, even If tho enjoined sum must Ho In tho banks. Upon thnt sum the county profits by 2 per cent per an num credited monthly. ARRESTETJATSISTERS "Water Master Says J. X. QiillicrK In terfered Willi Water Hlghta. J. X.
