The Freisinnige Zeitung declares that

TREASURER HARVEY SHORT.
He Is Apparently Out Something
Brunswick, Ga„ Aug. 20.—At a special
called meeting of Brunswick's mayor and
council held to-night, City Treasurer H.
H. Harvey asked to be relieved from his
office. Treasurer Harvey also requested,
in connection therewith, that an expert
accountant be placed on his books. Coun
cil granted Treasurer Harvey's request by
appointing City Clerk L. C. Bodet tem
porary treasurer, pending an investigation
of Mr. Harvey’s books, and also author
ized Treasurer Harvey to employ an ex
pert to examine them.
Treasurer Harvey's request was due to
the fact that he had recently found an
apparent error in his accounts, and in at
tempting to trace that error with City
Clerk Bodel, he had found his hills paya
ble account checked up about $19,000 short,
in continuing the investigation through
his expense account, an error of over
*I.OOO in his favor had been discovered,
making the apparent shortage of his ac
count as treasurer about *IB,OOO.
Treasurer Harvey, realizing that a mis
take had been made somewhere, decided
that the best solution of the affair would
be to turn his books over for expert ex
amination and let the experts balance
them. Treasurer Harvey has also noil
fled his bond company of the apparent
shortage. He is bonded in the United
States Fidelity and Casualty Company of
Baltimore for $15,000.
Mayor Atkinson and the individual
members of Council express tiie greatest
confidence in Treasurer Harvey, as do
ihose few citizens who have learned of
his request to Council to-night. The
Morning News corresi>ondent has thor
oughly investigated the matter, and there
is nothing whatever in the case on which
to base any suspicion of misuse of office
on Treasurer Harvey’s part. He Is a
young man, with a large family, consist
ing of a devoted wife and seven children.
Neither he nor any member of his fam
ily is extravagant, and they have always
lived in a very modest manner.
During the period that the apparent
shortage appears, Treasurer Harvey had
an income from property inherited from
his father and his office as treasurer of
nearly S4OO per month. He neither spec
ulated nor indulged in any bad habits
The present difficulty in hisk-aecounta can
be attributed to the bad bookkeeping of
his deputy, but beyond that no blatne can
now be attached to Treasurer Harvey’s
record. It is confidently believed by every
one connected with the case that when
all the* books and account* have passed
the scrutiny of expert examiners, a bal
ance will be struck, showing Treasurer
Harvey’s accounts all right.

His was the idea of a national association

' gathering of that association. The result

Noe took to tramping from love, not ne
cessity. Years ago in Danville, the psce
of his birth, when his parents though* h©
whs at school, the youth who was to be
exulted t 6 the future Pipe was engaged In
learning the rudiments of the gentle art
of “hoboing.” The present officers of the
Tourist Union are: Head Pipe-. Charles F.

quite a shock until the Tourists become
accustomed to it. Huge badges bearing
the picture of the comic paper ‘•Willie”
and ornamented with the coupling pin and
links, the insignia of the union, will be
given to each delegate on his arrival.
