neither of these gentlemen would give

made it apparent that shortages do ex

First, Messrs. Harralson and McCaig
spent ten days in Brunswick, returned
to Savannah and returned together with
Mr. H. C. Prince, comptroller of the
system, and Mr. J. S. Itussell, a repre
sentative of the Guaranty Company of

I can say I know nothing or it.”
Continuing, Mr. Verdery said: “1
have lived in Brunswick seventeen
years and in all that time I have en
deavored to live an honest upright
life, I have been economical in my
home life, have never speculated lo
the slightest degree, and atn oonvino
ed that if I were able to be at my of
fice I could explain many things that
now appear mysterious. However, if
lam short, I wilt endeavor to pay
every cent of it.”
Mr. Verdery is quite an ill uian and
in all probability, will not be in con
dition to visit his office in ten days.
During bis illness, and pending the
obeok, whioh is still in progress, Mr.
P. M, trisoh, formerly ohief clerk in
the office will be in charge of the

checked into that position.
Mr. Verdery has lived in Brunt
wiok many years, and enjoys to the
fullest extent the perfect confjdefloe
of the oomutunity.
