The President sent a special message
to Congress today in which he says
that in view of the decision of the
Supreme Court declaring the Employ
ers' Liability Law to he unconstitu
tional, legislation is needed in regard
to the relations of capital and laboi,
the corporations and the public.
The liability law should be reenact
cd and limited to cases to which it
can leeally apply.
The President advises an act com
pensating employes injured in the
Government service, .Also action is
necessary to prevent advices in in
junctions in labor cases.
The Government should assume a
measure of control of interstate rail
roads and also restrain stock water
ing, 'over-capitalization, and gamb
ling in stocks and commodities.

Tax Office Row
Starts Investigation Ot
A row has hrokep. out between
Tax Assessor James L. Holt and
Treasurer Campbell which Is so se
rious that it has been taken up by
Secretary Mott-Smlth and Attorney
General Hemenwny and an Investi
gation, which has already Instcd sev
eral days, is under way. What the
final result will be cannot be stated
at prcsont, but 11 Is rumored that
Campbell demands that Holt be fired
from Ills nosltton. In case Holt wins
out, theie Is liable to bo another va
cancy In the tax office.
Campbell has taken up n complaint
made by I. II. Harbotttc. a collector
of the Tax Office, who charges Holt
with what virtually amounts to mnl
fcaBanco In office. According to
llarhottlo's statement to the Socre
tary of the Territory, Holt paid him
commissions which were not due him,
merely to show that ho hold no hard
feelings against tho collector. Har
bottle Is said to have told Jlmmto
Iloyd before Christmas that he was
going to make trouble for tho Tax
Assessor nnd mako things so hot tor
him that ho would havo to get out.
Holt absolutely denies tho charges
and says that he is glad tho matter
Is being investigated, for tho closer
tho investigation the surer he Is ot
being fully exonerated.
It has long been reported that
Treasurer Campbell wanted to get
rid of Holt and would bo glad to find
como pretext for demanding that he
be removed. Ho Is claimed to be
using tho present opportunity vigor
ously to mako trouble for tho Tax
Asbescor, and Is backing Harbottle up
The trouble, all arose originally, It
seems, through Holt's action In sus
pending Harbottle for using profane
languago toward his suporlor. Ac.
cording to tho story told by Holt's
friends, tho Tux Assessor on the 8th
ot last October Instructed Harbottle,
who was then ono of tho office depu
ties, to look up for him some Infor
mation regarding a number of poll
taxes upon which the department
wished to start suits. This Hurbot
tlo was supposed to do after tho hour
when tho office closes. Hut at 4
o'clock Holt saw Hnrbottlo going out
ot tho door without having done the
work. Ho cnlled him back and ask
ed why he had not obeyed instruc
tions. Harbottle grumbled some
thing and went out. As ho was go
ing out of tho outer door, Holt under
stood him to uso a vllo and obscene
Tho next day Holt called his dep
uty into tho offiro und gavo him a
chanco to apologize, and when ha
(ailed to do so, told him to take his

coat nnd hat nnd get out, that ho
Some days after this Uldcr Waller
of the Reorganized Mormon Church
called on Holt and said that Harbot
tle had joined his churcti, that ho
had reformed, and wns sorry for
what he had said and would do bet
ter. Waller asked that Holt rein
state Harbottle. Holt said that bo
would consider the matter, although
he thought that Harbottle was right
Tho next Sunday Hnrbottlc'o wlfo
tailed on Holt and asked him to re
instate her husband, saying that ho
hna turned over n new leaf, Tho
following day Hnrbottlo himself for
the first tlmo saw Holt and apolo
gized for what he had done. Ho said
that ho had been afraid that Holt
intended to supplant him with a Jap
r.r.c3o and for that reason had been
working ugatnst him In and out of
tnc office. Hut he would stop that
and attend to business Jt he wcro
given another chnnce.
Holt accepted the apology and tolcfL-'-.
him ho could go to work again, but
would havo to start at the bottom
nnd work his way up. Hnrbottlo
wns, therefore, set to work collecting
outside, on a commission.
During the first week In Xovcnibet
Hnrbottlo turned In his collections
up to November 5. This date should
have been Included In the November
accounts, but In order to mnke Har
bottle's pay for tho month a little
larger. Holt allowed him to Includo .
tho collections of tho Cth, amounting '
to sovcral hundred dollars.
Hut when Harbottle turned over
his November accounts It Is claimed
ho again Included tho collections of
November 6, nnd drew down his com
mission for the nmount a second
time. Holt's supporters say that tho
reason this could bo done was that
November was tho busy month and
tho office was so rushed that not all
former collections had yet been en
Harbottle, on the other hand, says
that Holt patted hlmn tho shoul
der, und said, "That'll be all right.
I'll lot ou draw commission on this
again, Just to show that thcro Is no
Holt when asked about this state
ment today, denied positively that ho
ever said or did any such thing. He
ha Id that tho allowing n doublo com
mission was merely an error.
Harbottle further claimed that he
had been told by Holt thnt poll taxes
paid In at tho offico, for which he
had tho collection bills which ho
had been trying to collect, should bo
