SATURDAY, JULY 23, 1927 NUMBER 30 COUNTY VALUATION SHOWS INCREASE Clark County Assessment Roll Valuations Increased Nearly One and Three Quarters Millions. • . A substantial increase of about one sixth in the county valuation was announced by County Asses sor F. C. DeVinney this week when the assessment roll were completed 'for the year ending June 30, 1927. This increased valuation of$l,1 723,616 over the last year's total of $10,219,368. This brings Che county valuation up to $11,942,884. The Union Pacific railroad vafl 'nation was increased by $1,382,179 ] from $5,940,090 to $7,322,269.; This increase is due to the find-, ing of the State Tax Commis sion which met in Carson a few months ago and ordered that the valuation be raised. The American Railway Express, The Pullman Company, The Con solidated Power and Telephone Company and other public utili-! ties valuations were raised $66, ] 33'4.

MANY REFINEMENTS IN NEW BUICK MODEL Twelve luxurious closed models and four de luxe open cars com prise the line of Buicks for 1928.1 AH embody refinements undream ed of, even in the costliest custom motor cars. There Ls no marked difference in appearance between the short-; er and the longer wheelbase models of Buick for 1928. Both have the same radiator shell, and the same stylish low coutour. Headlamps, in Buick for 1928, cast the tame quantity of light when Tufned on dim as wthen bright. In the dim position, how ever, the light fa depressed to the road directly In front of the car, where it can not inconvience aproaching drivers. New rigidity is assured in the Buick front fenders, on the 1928 models, by a one-piece tie rod, which also supports the head-, lamps. Two brackets, instead of one as formerly, give the fenders additional strength. Another new feature is the combination tail stop and backing libht, entirely automatic in oper light. Beside adding to the car’s distinction, it increases the Buick factor of safety. The improved radiator emblem resembles last year’s, but is more graceful and typifies, in a great er degree, the speed and luxury which are Buick’s. It is bounted on a deeper heavily nickeled radiator shell. motor i m pro vc men to •! The iniprovellents in Buiok’s fauous vibrationless six-cylinder . vaflve-in-head engine lend a speed, getaway and hill ability never before acheived, either by Buick or any other motor car. JJo adjustment of generator brushes, to regulate the rate of battery charge, is required. A thermostatic regulator, Entirely automatic, tempers tthe charge ■properly, under all weather con ditions. preventing under-charging) or over charging. ■Cold-weather starting, which ! has always been easy with the I Buick becomes still more certain j in the new machine. The gear ratio between the starter and j fly-wheel has been increased to! bring about this end. Greater simplification appears '■ in the distributor head this year. This is due to the new accessibil ity of the adjustment screwy Tighter seating valves, and con sequent 3aving of power, result from a new head design whereby the valve seats are more evenly cooled. This change has been made in the light of long study of combustion problems and lhas insreased the portion of fuel ; transformed Into useful power, thereby bettering performance. Still further power increase Is assured by the enlargement of the entire exhaust system. - • Rates of fare on the Boeing Air Transport line from Reno toj various cities along the route1 were announced by O. C. Rich-j adreon, the Reno field manager. The one way ticket from Reno to San Francisco is $23.00 per person. This rate is higher than the fare on the line of the West ern Air Express Company from here to L03 Angeles which is a greater distance. The fare from Reno to Salt Lake is higher than from Las Vegas to Salt Lake. Las Vegas can be very proud that she is on an air line which gives such good service at so low a price. The Western Air Express Company is tihe first line of its kind’ which has been a financial success. The Turkish president has pre pared a speech which is two days long Wait till Tom Heflin hears about this.

I Matter of Constitutionality of Three Months Resi dence Argued and Submit ted to Supreme Court Because many suits for divorce under the three-months residence divorce law and a number of de crees granted, the supreme court of the state of Nevada is ex pected to tender an early decision in the matter of the law's con stitutionality, which was argued and submitted Wednesday. It is the general belief that the law wiU be upheld. The action before the supreme court is an appeal for a writ of prohibition to prevent Judge George A. Bartlett of the Washoe county district court from pro ceeding with the case in which he declared the law constitutional, says the Nevada State Journal. Among the attorneys who pre sented the arguments were those representing the plaintiff and the defendant in the test case, two ap pointed by Judge Bartlett to pre sent the views of his court, one to present the views of Judge G. A. Ballard, who Tirst questioned the validity of the law, and two ap pointed amicus curiae by the su preme court. One of the latter was Atty., Gen., M. A. Diskin. Though two of the attorneys presented the negative side of argument for the purpose of the test, it was remarked that the en tire seven expressed the belief personally that the measure was valid. Harlan Heward, counsel for the defense in the case, who elected to raise the question of the con stitutionality of the threejmonths law in Judge Bartlett’s court, opened 'he arguments. He con tended that the legislature toad no authority to amend or repeal the initiative measure adopted toy the people in 1922, which pro because, under the provisions of vided for a six month’s residence, section 2, article 19, of the Con stitution of the State of Nevada, the people have reserved to them selves "the power to amend or repeal laws adopted, by them. He further contended that the title of the 1927 act was defec tive, as it attempts to amend what the act itself designates as a proposal, and not an existing law. George B. Thatcher, amicus cu riae of the Washoe county court, answered the arguments of He ward and insisted that under sec tion 3 of the constitution a mea sure initiated by the people and and for which a substitute was proposed toy the legislature, could be repealed or amended by the legislature. Mr. Thatcher al so asserted that the title of the act was sufficient, under deci sions heretofore rendered by the supreme court. uiaj iiiaoiiuui u, ouvM uvj tng the petitioner in the district court was the first speaker at the afternoon session. His observa ! tions were along the lines indi cated by Thatcher. Lester D. Summerfield, district I attorney of Washoe county, took! the position that section 3 of ar-! tide 19 of the constitution had j reference only to such measures. as were adopted by a majority I vote cast at the election, and it j was admitted by opposing coun sel for petitioner that the initia tive measure provided for a six! months residence in divorce cases did not receive a majority of the votes cast at the election. George S. Brown presented in ful and filled with the clerk of the i court a st^temet containing the j opinion of Judge Ballard and set-! ting forth his views as to the unconstitutionality of the law. Brown stated that these were not his own views and he expressed himself as being satisfied that the law was constitutional. M. A. Diskin, attorney general, appointed 'by the supreme court as amicus curiae, stated to the court that after a careful investi gation of the la.w^ and the conten tions raised by the petitioner he was of the opinion that the objec tions as to the invalidity of the 1927 aot were without merk for the reason that the measure adopted toy the people in 1922 was initiated by petition and that the substitute proposed toy the legis lature was not a law and did not become a law until adopted by the people. The attorney general stated that the constitution of Nevada gave to the legislature the right to amend or repeal such a measure after the expiration of three years frc%u adoption. eGorge Sanford, also amicus curiae toi the supreme court, claimed t inasmuch as the law adopted by the people had ■> been proposed by the legislature, the legislature had the power to amend or repeal the law at any time after its adoption. He con curred in the conclusions reached by other counsel who held the statute to be entirey constitutional in every respect. It doesn't fake much of a car at that, to last some drivers a life-time.—Arkansas Gazette. MARRIED SHiCERIN-ORIGGS: in this city, Wednesday, July 20, 1927, Joseph A.

GASOLINE ¥x FEES Mil 10 COUNTIES Clark County Receives $4, 038.43 of the Amount Collected in Second Quar-j ter of 1927. — During the three months’ per-! -iod, ending June 30, the four cent' gasoline tax fund collected iby: the state amounted to $115,146.17 of which $10,215.59 was refunded leaving $104,930.58 to be dis tributed on a basis of fifty per cent to she state and fifty per cent to the various counties, ac cording to the number of cars registered in the counties.

CALIFORNIANS HOPE FOR RIVER COMPACT Prediction That Agreement Between Arizona and Other States Will Be Reached Following Denver Meeting. .... (Nevada State Journal) _ Hope that an agreement be tween Arizona and other lower basin states on the Colorado ri ver may be reached at a confer ence, tentatively planned for August 10 in Denver, was express ed yesterday by members of a southern California commission, who stopped in Reno after visit ing the states primarily Interest ed in conservation an^l controll of the waters of the Colorado. The members of the group were Earl C. Pound, president of the Imperial Valley irrigation dis trict and designated by Governor C. C. Young as one of the men to ibe appointed as a memiber of the Colorado river commission for California^ W. B. Mathews, chief counsel of the department of water and power of Dos Angeles; T. A. Panter, assistant electrical engineer for the bureau of power and light of Dos Angeles; Ralph H. Criswell, Colorado river agent of the department of water and power, a former member of the city council of Los Angeles; W. J. Dowd, chief engineer of the Imperial district; Charles L. Childress, chief counsel for the district, and F. H. Mclver, sec retary and treasurer. The members of the commis sion said they ha^l been on a “friendly visitation” to the four upper basin states, stopping at Santa Fe, Denver, Salt Lake City and Reno. “In all states we found a friendly attitude toward the great desire to see the compact of the seven states ratified by Arizona.” Uitttnn ui a,s»iMtuu c lu v^am ornia and Arizona in terminating the differences of those two 6tates relative to agreements for distribution of benefits to accrue from construction of the proposed dam, were made by the upper states, the visitors said. “California feels friendly to ward Nevada and appreciative of the efforts of Nevada in forward ing plans for the dam. At no time since the seven state pact was prepared and signed has there been any serious differen ces of opinions between the offic ers of Nevada and California,” Pound stated. “There has been nothing but the most harmonious relations between the two states he con tinued. "In 1926 Nevada and California agreed on a proposal for a three state compact, formulated by J. G. Scrugham of Nevada, .but the pact was rejected by Arizona.” The upper states, the Califor nian added, have offered to act as judges at the coming confer ences between the lower states. ii mtf luwer stales cau itjacu au agreement, assurances were giv en to the travelers that the upper states will fight for the legisla tion for 'he dam in congress. The visitations were said to have been entirely satisfactory, and probably v> have paved the way for concrete action at the coming conference. Governor Young of California will be in attendance at the Den ver meeting, it was stated. Yesterday the men held a con ference with Governor Balzar, George W. Malone, state engineer, True Vencill and other officials, which was described as very sat isfactory. There was no thought at the conference, Criswell said, of try ing to enter into any agreement with Nevada. The party left Reno last night to go to Sasramento to make an unofficial report to Governor Young and the members of the California water commission.
