LEXINGTON AND DAYIDSON COUNTY.
Ex-Sheriff Dorsett Makes an Assignment.
Lexington Dispatch, Augnst 2Sth.
Friday ex-Sheriff T. S, F. Dor
Bott met with his bondsmen and
executed a deed of trust, with E
E. Raper, Esq., trustee, which
covers all his personal property
and real estate, in order to protect
his bondsmen and make good as
far as possible any shortage that
may remain after the final settle
ment of taxes has been affected
with the county treasurer. From
the best authority possible The
Dispatch ascertains that there is a
gross shortage of between $27,000
and $28,000, It is stated that
the uncollected taxes will amount
to about $4,000 and that the net
returns from the property turned
over to the trustee will amount to
about $15,000, making the assets
total $19,000 which leaves a net
shortage of about $8,000 or $9,000.
These figures are not given The
Dispatch as absolutely correct.
The shortage may be more and it
may be less. Of course the county
and Btate are fully protected by
the bondsmen and will lose noth
ing. The sheriff gives a bond for
county taxes and one for state
taxes, and in this instance the
county bond is for $30,000 and
the state for $13,000. However
Sheriff Dorsett gave $3,000 more
than necessary on the county bond,
wnicu is signea up iot spdd.UUU, tne
total of the two bonds beins
$46,000. The bondsmen on the
county bond are as follows, with
the amount they are responsible
for: H. W. Dorsett, $3,000; H
C. Grubb, $15,000; J. H. Mock,
$2,000; J. M. Rothrock, $2,000;
E. H. Dorsett, $1,000; L. F.
Weaver, $1,000; J, L. Michael,
$3,000; G. W. Montcastle, $4,000;
R. I. Nance, $2 000. Total $33,000.
The bondsmen on the state bond
and the amounts follow: H. W.
Dorsett, $3,000; H. C. Grubb, $5,
