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, ]
The balance of the increase j
is In real estate and mining |
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.

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 records of Tuskogee Insti
tute show that during the first
six months of 1927 tncre were
nine lynchings in the United
States. This is the same number
as for the corresponding period
n 1925 and 1926; four more than
for the first six months of 1924;
six less than for the first six
months of 1923; 21 less than for
the first six months of 1922 and
27 less than for the first six
months of 1921.
The figures show a gratifying
decrease in the lynching activi
ties of the South. AH of the per
sons lynched in the first six
months of this year were Negroes.
The offenses charged were, mur
der, 4; attempted murder, 2; rape
1; improper conduct, 1; charge
not reproted 1.
The states in which lynchings
occurred and the number fi each
state are as follows: Arkansas,

of course, right to the point.
The speaker expressed the hope
that the club under its new ad
ministration would continue its
good work and that members
should show ever increasing act
vity in behalf of Rotary. He con
gratulated Las Vegas on having

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
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
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.

court was the first speaker at the
afternoon session. His observa !
tions were along the lines indi

attorney of Washoe county, took!

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.

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.
Taking the $104,930.58 collected
through the four cent tax as ba
sis the figures indicate that
2,632,204 galons of gasolie were
used by the cars in the state of
Nevada during the months of
April, May and June. Clark
county’s share of this would be
over 200,000 gallons or aibout one
tenth of the total gasoline used
in the state.
i ue luiui uuiuun wi uwjubcs
issued in the state for the first
half of the year was 22, 982.
According to the last census
this would give one car to every

Prediction That Agreement
Between Arizona and
Other States Will Be
Reached Following Denver
.... (Nevada State Journal) _
Hope that an agreement be

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.”

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
"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.

agreement, assurances were giv

states will fight for the legisla
