Have this evening carefully examined the
reports of R. N. Stevens, U.S. Comr. & Recorder
in Nome for he year beginning July 23rd 1900 &
ending June 30th 1901. I find that his receipts
- the receipts of the office for such term were
just about equal to his disbursments
- he only turned in $483.00 in cash for the
year: his receipts were $22,895.65
" disbursments " 22,700.45!!
