Opportunities Await You? Come! TAKES HONEY TO HIM COUNTY * If anyone imagines that it does not take very much money to run a coun ty the size of Elko county, it IB only I necessary to take a look at the money disbursed by the county commission ers at their last meeting. And the last meeting, with the exception of the election expenses was nothing more than any other meeting in this line. At this meeting the bills paid including the salary of the different county and township officers from the general county fund ran up to a total of nearly $8400 for the expenses of the month. The expense for a year at that rate would total $100,800, a large sum of money. The fact that it takes as large a sum of money to pay merely ? the general expenses on Elko County is reasou enough to make every man in the county register and cast his vote at every election, and not only cast his vote, but cast it in an in telligent, thinking way.

BACK HAUL HEARIRB IS AGAIN RESUMED Discussion of the back-haul propos ition has been again resumed. This time the hearing is taking place in Chicago before Specia Examiner Hen ry Thurtell. The entire railroad com mission of Nevada are at present at the meeting. The railroads have caused the ques tion to be again opened up and ask the priviledge of making a lesser rate through to the Pacific coast than they make to intermounatain points. They avert that if they are allowed to re duce their rates to the coast from 15 to 50 per cent that they will be able to compete with the water lines af ter the opening of the canal. Oth erwise they will be at a disadvantage. California representatives are on hand to assist the railroads as well as rep resentatives of the middle state. Western representativs are oppos ing the request and demand if the rates are lowered to the coast the Intermountain region should enjoy a similar reduction. The matter will probably be bitterly fought. Henry Thurtell, the special exam iner, before whom the case Is being heard, was one of the first railroad commislonrs of the state. Before re ceiving the appointment he was a professor in the state university. He is well known all over Nevada. n : MINE ACCIDENTS ARE DECREASING Fatalities in and about the quarries in the United States were fewer in 1913 than in 1912, but were higher in Great Britain and France for the cor responding years.
