CARSON CITY, NEVADA, WEDNESDAY, MAY 3, 1922
ORDER NINETY DAYS MORE FOR
PICftfORD CASE CONSIDERATION
As a result of a resubmission of the
Pickford divorce case to the state su
preme court today that court will have
an additional ninety days in which to
consider the divorce case. An order
of resubmission was made by the court
and x stipulation for the postponement
was entered into between Attorney P.
A. McCarran for the actress and Deputy
-Attorney-General Robert Richards for
The state law provides that cases
must be decided by the supreme court
within ninety days after submission, but
an extension of that time is often neces
esary and the case is resubmitted, which
permits an additional ninety days.
NO INTIMATION OF "MUST"
TRUSTEE HURLEY SAYS
Carson City, May 3, 1922.
Editor, Appeal : The News Is in er
ror when it intimates that Mr. Murphy
was told that he "must" sign this pc-
tion as the representative of the larg
est taxpayer in the city. There was no
intimation of "must" in my request to
taxpayers to attach their names to the
petition. The word was used to scare
some of the signers, in order to with
draw their names after having signed,
lest it would injure their business.
The proposal to exempt property
owners of the north end was bait
thrown out by A. B. Gray in order to
get "toots" to help his scheme. He
would promise the north end, south
end, or any other end or part that
would help his purpose. He seems to
leIong to that class of men who "never
refuse a promise, or keep one."
No matter what quibbles the News,
or its client may resort to, the one ir
refutable property owner or taxpayer
in the city acknowledges the justice of
bearing its part of the burden without
"passing around the hat." There is an-
other fair-minded property owner up
there, E. J. Walsh, who expresses his
willingness to shoulder his burden for
a block. Who is next, before we pass
a "draft law" or paving ordinance?
In the south end, Herman Spring
meyer is anxious to have that part of
Main street paved and will pay for a
Hurry up, gentlemen, don't miss the
golden opportunity. The Dunn bill, de
creasing federal aid, has ln'en passed
by a large majority in the house. I
warned the city council against the dan
ger of delay, but was informed that the
present federal program would continue
for five years.

OF HIRED DEFENDERS
Editor, Appeal : When an attorney
is admitted to practice law, he is sworn
to obey all orders of the court, among
other things. If ordered to defend any
one he must do it, pay or no pay. I
have defended hundreds, accused of
selling whiskey to Indians . principally,
and if I rememler right, I helped to
convict them all except two. Ie de
sire to relate a fe wexperiences :
The first I acquitted, or rather he ac
cquitted himself, was a young man who
looked as much like an anarchist as
Trotzky. When first asked if he wanted
a lawyer he said no. He changed his
mind, and I was appointed to Judge
Farrington. I interviewed him a few
minutes before impanelling the jury,
and he told me plainly that he had
watched the Indian that morning, and
also saw him following him when he
threw away a flask of whisky on the
side near a pole in an alley in Reno.
Upon the stand, a few minutes later,
he utterly denied ever seeing the In
dian at all in all h's born days. I was
dumbfounded, but kept sufficient pres
ence of mind to keep my mouth shut.
It acquitted him, and as he walked out
he said to me: "You did pretty well,
The other was accused of robbing the
postoffice at Rawhide, and stealing a
new package or book of stamps, from
which only two sheets had been re
moved when introduced in evidence by
Sam Piatt, the United States attor
ney. Th's package or book of stamps
had been found in defendant's trunk,
after he was placed in jail. Mr. Piatt
also introduced parts of sheets of
stamps which had been found on the
person of the defendant, and it was
proved also that he had sold a few
stamps around town. I am a printer,
and about the first thing I noticed about
the stamps found on his person and
those found in the trunk of the defen
dant was a difference in the width of
the margin. I said nothing about that
until I argued before the jury, and
showed the difference in the margins,
proving that the stamps found on the
person of the defendant could not have
