- Trouble is brewing over in No-
lan county over the question of
removing the county site from
Sweetwater to Maryneal, a new
town on the Orient within five
miles of the geographical center
of the county. Courthouse iights
are nearly always bitter fights
and the Nolan county case is not
likely to be an exception to the
mile. Petitions are being circu-
lated and very considerably sign-
ed throughout the county asking
the commissioners to order an
election for an early date to de-
cide the question and late reports
say that the required numbei^of
voters to secure this election have
already signed the petition. The
situation seems to be that the
town of Sweetwater, th^ present
county site of Nolan county, is a

Gatch declines to discuss the sit-
uation. The shortage is alleged
to be $137 000
The alleged embe^zlemegt is
said to have been made possible
by manipulation fit an adding
mach ine. The Lewiston National
Bank and Idaho Trust company
consolidated a year ago. The
aggregate deposits at the present
time are about $600,000, of which
$450,000 is subject to check.
Cash on hani is about $200,000.
The case has been placed in the
hands of the comptroller otiJjjr-

arrests will be made.

That the defendant company was the

of survey No. 22, as the assignee of
Jere Reese, both of whom had acquired
the same from the state of Texas, un-
