Ubi, Prosocuting Attornoy, presented tho followíng: lo the Honorable (he lioard of Superviton of Wuahlenaa Couniy : The undersigned Clork and Prosocuting Attomey of tho county, your com ■ mitieo to wlvoni wivs refcrred t!iu mattor of the examination as to tho issuing and paymont of certain oíd orders dnring the year 1870, would reipeotfully report that tlny huvü carot'ully oxaminml tho jouinal of the fffpeeedinga oí tho Board of tíupervisors, and aLso all thü othor roooruB Ín the office; of thc County Clurk and Tren- urur which cun thruw any light on the subject refened to, and asovituin as thu result of sneh tixaiuinatiou as follow.s : That ull wi;ru properly paid with tho exception of an order hereto attiM'.hi.'d, lx;ing an order dated üetober 17, 1SIK), drawn by thc Clerk, coujitersigned by Chuü. Sliior, thon chairman of the Board of Supervisors, ín favor of D. A. VTis: qi Iwavor, for orte hunrlivd autl sovcn and eighty-six-hun.lvedths dollars, and deliv ered to C JoslLn, at his request, December 00, 18(39. On tho 7th of Octobor, 18(50, thoro was allowed by the Board of Hupervisors to D. A., then a deputy-sheri(F, the sum of one hundred and sevuii aivl cighty-sIx-Uuiidi-eiltlis di)ll;u-.-t, lx:i)jg the; same anixmnt as that of the order rcferred to. This was the only allowance to the said D. A. Wiso of that amount. That as appears bj' the siub in tho order book in the Clerk's office (a copy of which stub is as follows : " Jiu. % D. A. Wise, üct. 9th, 1860, $107.88 "Van order was drawn in favor of tho said I). A. Wise, dated the 9th day of üetober, 18(0, for the exact ainouut allowed a abovo stated. By referenco to thc books in tlio office of the County Treasurer (Lcdger No. 2, page 256) we find the foÜowing entry : " 1861, Feb'y lst, By paid order to I). A. Wise, No. 2. $107.8(i," showing the order last aforesaid was paid to D. A. Wise tho very day it beoame pnyable, being for the full and exact amount allowed by the Board of Supervisors as aforesaid. The order hereto attachud is of the same mimber, to wit, No. 2, tbr the samo sum to-wit, L107.00, as thu oue paid Pebruary lst, 1861. It is the praotice in the Clerk's office after the animal meeting of the Board of Supervisors, to begin numbering order.s for tho paymont of claims allowed with number oue, aud proceed in regular order. By reference to thu order book referred to it will be diacovered that in the yuar 18(0 tle clerk began the first pago with No. One, and onterad thoreon also and fillcd out uumbor two, being tle onler horeto attacliud, and for some rcason, doubtless by inadvertence, began the next page also with number one aud proceeded thorefroin, No. Two on that page beLog the order paid to D. A. Wiso February lstr 1861, aud omittadto destroy or cancel th( duplícate on tlx; prior pag.e but allowud it to remain in the book. It remained there iroui Oetoberr 1800, until December, 1S6!),. a periocf of more than nine yoars, whwi it was deliberad to C. Joslin. At that timo in a coovcisation betweert the present Clerk and Mr. Joslin in reference to the great number of old orders that were let't in tbc office not called for, Mr. Kobison mentionud tbis order, not DOtioing that a soeond or duplic.ito bad been drawn aud delivered, whereupon Mr. Joslin n niarked that he was entitled to that, and finally it was deïivered tö him, tho Clerk noting, both upon the stub and the order itsolf, " Delivered D;c. 30, 1869 toC. Joslin at his request," which order was subsequontly paid by tho County Treasurer, as will appcar by referenco to Ledger No. 4, page J70, in the Tltiwr rer's office, and knowing that Mr. Wiso had, in thc year 1861, (intered tho army, and remaincd absent froui tho Stato for somc time, thought that porhaps ho might havo forgotten it. Your eommittee hus canfered with Mr. Wise but is unable Vo obtoin any satisfactory explanaitioii, his recolloction in regard to aiiairs, as. is very natural aftel a lapse of over t?n yoars, being very inilistinct. Ho statos thit he ktiow nothiag of it uutil called uport ly ono of tha SujMirvisors, and had no-t learned till then that the ordevliad been delivered to M r. Joslin and tho amount paid to him. He states furthor that if the order was improperly issued it should be repaid, but thinks that if the mattor could be fully understood it would bo foundto be correct. Yourcorauiittco, from tlip fullest examination thoy have bo;-n able ti ïuakc, can èoBM to no other conclusión thau that the order was left in the book by mistake and nover intended for delivery, and that the amount paid. should be rufuudcd to tho county. Your eommittee would reeoiumcnd thai all orders remainingin the books one year after their date beregiüterod, cut out and placed in the safe, as the partios in whoso Pavor they aro drawn are entitled to them. Thcy must be preservcd, and this, in thu udgmont of your committoe, is the most prudont dásvositioíi to bo ïuude. AU of which is rospectfully subnrittted. (Sigued) EDWIN F, UIIL, Pros. Att'y. JOHN J.
