TO SUE FORMER
GAME WARDEN

DES MOINES, Jan. 30 -- Attorney General Ben J. Gibson was instructed by the state executive council today to bring suit of accounting against E. C. Hinshaw of Spirit Lake, former state fish and game warden.  The state will demand that Hinshaw show how he disposed of money he is said to have received from the sale of fish while he was in office.  The last session of the general assembly apointed [sic] a committee to investigate charges against Hinshaw's alleged misconduct of office.  This committee referred the matter to the state executive council for definite action.  Members of the executive council passed resolutions last Friday requesting the attorney general to bring suit against Hinshaw for accounting to certain funds.  It was not until today, however, that the resolution was made public.  Hinshaw served as fish and game warden for five years.

The following article was published in the "Nashua Reporter" (Nashua, Iowa) on February 16, 1922:18

Investigations into the accounts of former state game warden, D. [sic] C. Hinshaw of Spirit Lake began by the Thirty-eighth general assembly, have culminated in a suit for an accounting to be brought by the state against Hinshaw at Spirit Lake.  The executive council has asked Attorney General Gibson to bring suit at once to determine if Hinshaw, as charged, sold fish belonging to the state and appropriated the funds.  When the department affairs committee began an investigation of Hinshaw's acounts [sic] Hinshaw resigned.  The probe was not completed.  The assembly last winter again started a probe but did not complete the work and turned it over to the state executive council.  An investigation was made by the attorney general's office and with the evidence thus collected the council has decided to bring suit.

The following article was published in the "Press-Citizen" (Iowa City, Iowa) on Thursday, May 22, 1924:19

E. C. Hinshaw of Spirit Lake, former state fish and game warden, against whom suit has been pending for several years, won his case in the state supreme court when it was decided that he had a right to speculate in the disposal of the soft fish caught under his direction from Iowa lakes.  The state contended that Hinshaw received $800 through selling permits to fishermen to remove "soft fish" from state waters; that he received additional sums through charging from a quarter of a cent to 3 cents a pound for fish taken by permit holders; and that the state was entitled to an accounting for all the profits, approximately $6,900, Hinshaw made.  "A public officer is not required," the opinion states, "to give every instant of his time to the public service in such a sense that he cannot, if wholly consistent with his public duties, perform any other service or earn money from other sources.  His first and paramount duty is to perform all the requirements of his office, but he is not barred, because he holds public office, from investing his funds in a legitimate enterprise, nor prohibited from receiving profits from an independent business in which he may have an interest."
