To thu Poeple of the Third L is ritt:- ' . , Having tendered to the president ofjthe board-pi supervisors my resig nation from membership, it) thatbody, I tonisder it proper to . make this public statement of the reasons actua ting my course : In any conflict between public itnd privata interests, it is the duty of every public official to either guborcli ate his own affairs, or afford to those who placed him in office an portuuity of filling his place. -Th.s is the situation which confronts n-vi. I sh.tll be absent from the court during several months of this ye:; una, in my judgmeut, such abseuti will render impossible the proper bit elm ge of the duties of a memb'ir of the board of supervisors. It would entail upon my asset elates duties and responsibilities wl ich l have no right to call upon , them to discharge, and would leave the citizens of this district without, a member to whom to appeal could be made iu the uumeroua mut ters arising during the vacation of the board. .
