NOTE; If the interest on the bonds is added to the total of warrant indebtedness and accrued interest on warrants, the result will be $254,543.40. The discrepancy is due to the fact that the total of the bond issue to take up the warrant indebtedness was only $206,024., leaving a difference of $10.96. These figures were obtained from the Financial History of the State of Washington, pp. 349-350.
