ATTORNEY VAN FLEET
INDICTED AT ELKO Elko, Nevada, Nov. 30.—Three in dictments, two charging subornation of perjury and one charging perjury, were returned against Carey Van Fleet, prominent Elko attorney, by the Elko grand jury. This developed yesterday when Van Fleet returned from Salt Lake City and was placed under arrest shortly after he got off the train. On the two subornation charges of perjury, Van Fleet appeared before District Judge Taber, who fixed his bail at $1000 in each case. Bail was furnished by John Henderson and Robert W. Hesson. The two subornation of perjury charges are the result of the trial of Henry J. Jones and J. G. Gregory for malfeasance in office while mem bers of the Board of County Com missioners. The two men were re moved from office by District Judge Walsh of Esmeralda County, sitting for Judge Taber. It is charged Van Fleet “did wilfully and feloniously suborn Henry J. Jones and J. G. Gregory to wilfully, falsely and cor ruptly swear to an answer to an amended complaint.” The complaints against Jones and Gregory are set out in full in the in dictments. The complaint charging perjury is in connection with the contempt charge against E. M. Steniger, grow ing out of the publication of the re port of the grand jury on the Jones and Gregory cases. The complaint charges Van Fleet with swearing that Steniger admitted to him that he had seen a copy of the grand jury report before it was filed, “whereas, in truth and in fact the said E. M. Steniger did not admit that he saw a partial report of the grand jury be fore the same was filed.” Van Fleet is one of the most prom inent attorneys in the State. He is a son of William Van Fleet, judge of the United States district court at San Francisco. “My indictment is the outcome of the defense I made for the County Commissioners in the removal case,” said Attorney Van Fleet this morn ing. “Two of the indictments are based upon technicality and pleadings One indictment is based on a proceed ing I brought against Editor Steni ger to ascertain whether he had re vealed secrets of the grand jury room, it being brought to our atten tion that the reports of the grand ju ry were seen by him before they were filed. “The whole thing is a result of the bitterness arising out of the commis sioners’ case. There is no doubt of a favorable result, so far as I am con cerned, and I do not fear the out come. The witnesses before the grand jury on my indictment are Judge Talbot and Deputy Attorney-General Patrick and what they alleged against me as to pleadings will be found, I have no doubt, in their own plead ings. I have never made any false affidavits, nor have 1 ever asked any of my clients to make any.” Sugar Restrictions Rescinded Effective at once and until further notice, the certificate plan, as well as all restrictions on household purchase and consumption of sugar have been suspended, according to an official communication received from the U ni ted States food administration for Ne vada. Grocers may sell any reasonable quanity of sugar to families, restau rants, bakers and others without re quiring certificates or other evidence of sale. This modification of rules is made possible by congestion at refineries, surplus from American sugar saving during the last six months, and the availability of new Cuban and Java sugars. No rules of the United States food administration regarding hoarding or governing licenses are affected by this order, and remain in full force and effect. _ With portentous clouds hovering about them in Holland the former kaiser and his effeminate offspring might well join in the refrain,“Where Do We Go From Here?” BONO OWNERS ORBED TO 1 HAVE CUPONS RE6ISTERE0 Washington, Nov. 26.—To insure against loss or theft of liberty bonds, owners are being urged by the treas ury to have their coupon bonds regis tered although the procedure results in agreat amount of work and expense for the Government now that the number of bond owners runs above 30,000,000. The registration can be arranged at most banks, and is done without cost to the owner. After registration, if a bond is accidentally lost, stolen or destroyed, the Govern ment will pay it at maturity just the same and interest checks will be mailed to the bond owner twice a year without requiring him to go to the trouble of clipping coupons and presenting them at a bank. “The fact that bonds of the first liberty loan or bonds of the second liberty loan are converted into bonds bearing higher rate of interest does not affect the dates on which interest is payable,” explains a treasury an nouncement. Interest is paid on bonds of the first loan, regardless of whether they have been converted, on June 15, and December 15; on bonds of the second loan, May 15 and November 15; third loan, March 15 and September 15; fourth loan, April 15 and October 15. _ Nevada State News There are only two breweries in Ne vada affected by the war-time prohi bition law which became operative December 1. They are the Reno Brewing Company plant located in Reno and the Capital brewery at Carson. The Imlay correspondent of the Lovelock Review-Miner says. “Re port says that J. R. Tubs, Assembly man elect, is not to be discharged for ‘running for office’ as reported in one of the local papers. He received word to report for work as master of the night yard. The indictment against F. H. Van Volkenburg, who was arrested in California and taken back to Elko, is for grand larceny. His bail was fixed at $1500, which was furnished by hisfather-in.-law, William Hunter. VanVolkenburg is acused of stealing a set of wrenches, fireman’s uniform, etc., of the value of more than $50. He was formerly connected with the Elko fire department. James Russell, one of Nevada’s earliest and most widely known pio neers, died at his home at Elko Nov. 28 following an illness of a month. The death of Mr. Russell Recalls to the minds of Nevada pioneers and old-time residents of Elko County the early days of this State, when Mr. Russell operated on the Com stock and later at the mining booms in Austin, Eureka, Mineral Hill and White Pine County. He settled in Elko in 1876, engaging in the live stock business, and retired from ac tive life ten years ago. John Dewar, State Senator-elect from Storey County, died at Virginia City Wednesday of last week of in fluenza. Senator Dewar had been a prominent resident of Virginia City for a great many years. He repre sented Storey County in the Assemb ly in 1915, and had taken an active interest in Republican politics for some time. In the last election he defeated former Senator Kinney. The death of Mr. Dewar will neces sitate a special election to be called by the Governor. The Nye County Council of Defense has notified the Federal Industrial Commission that 100 men can be giv en employment immediately in local mines. There is not a property in the camp that has not suffered from a shortage of labor so that when the influenza struck there the mines sus tained a solar plexus which was quickly reflected in. their reduced tonnage. It is the belief that many skilled men from various canton ments will drift back as soon as they receive their discharges and in this way the supply of skilled labor will be replenished while ordinary labor will be renewed by the men diverted in response td the information sent out. EAT SUBSTITUTES UNTIL CHRISTMAS To the end that stocks of victory and other substitute flours may be utilized without waste, the Federal food administration for Nevada has requested all housewives, bakers and restaurants to continne the purchase and use of substitutes to be used at their convenience and any quantities they desire. Such use is not manda tory, but is necessary in view of the utter criminalty of food waste under present conditions of world shortage. "Stark famine is blighting half the world,” runs the food administration statements, “and no loyal citizen of Nevada is willing for the small stocks of substitute in the hands of our grocers to spoil and be wasted. In sofar as this waste occurs, just so far are we guilty of withholding foodstuffs from starving millions. And exactly as we meet our present pressing obligations to save and send food, just so will we be judged by future generations as having done our duty to humanity. True, some of these other flours cost slightly more than wheat, but the quantities are so small, and the time during which it will be necessary for us to use them so short, that the differ ence is not appreciable. Let us meet this small demand as we have met all others.” All May Now Afford Automobile* Washington, Nov. 29.—A Liberty fuel, vastly cheaper than gasoline, possessing greater horsepower, less carbon, odorless, tasteless and non corrosive has been invented by offi cers of the War Department and is now being produced in large quan tities, was made known to-day.
