2 VOLUME 69 CARSON CITY, NEVADA, FRIDAY, MAY 19, 1922 NUMBER 114 x m J. P. SEXTON DEFIES STATE BODY AGAIN HOLD FIRST fflCAIWS EXHIBIT ATTEMPTS MURDER OFFER AIW1ENT WIFJIS ARE SUED IN MEMORIAL BUILDING The hearing of the public service commission of the state of Nevada at Palisade yesterday on rates and practi ces of the Eureka Nevada Railway was adjirhed shortly after opening he cause of the failure of J. F Sexton, vice-president and general manager of the rdad to appear. Mr. Sexton refused' to appeaV lecause summons for his ap pearance had been sent by registered mail and not served on him personally, the Reno Journal says. The commission, which was repre sented by Chairman J. F. Shaughnessy, heard pleadings of the attorneys rep resenting the F.urcka Chamber of Com merce and Mr. Sexton and adjourned to . take the matter of service of sum mons under advisement. Future steps to le taken by the commission in thd case were not made known by Mr. Shaugnessy last night upon his return to Reno although he said no definite action could be taken until the service of summon had been made. The hearing yesterday was intended to le a conclusion of the hearing of some weeks past which was interrupted by the failure of Sexton to appear and also by his order stopping service on the lines of the Eureka Nevada road and the discharge of his employes. At the time this order discontinuing ser vice was made a section ot track had leen washed away by flood waters. An order was later issued by the commis sion to compel Sexton to repair the road and put it into operation again. The road has been in service for sev eral weeks. Sexton has refused to attend the meetings of the commission or to pay any attention to some four or five or ders issued by them concerning the op eration of bis railway. The last sum mons was directed to hm to attend the meeting yesterday with a view, it is said, of changing some of the orders and terminating others. The complaint under which the com mission has been holding hearings, was made by the Eureka Chamber of Com merce which asks that rates be lowered and that an investigation of the manage ment of the line be made. The Eureka organization was repre sented yesterday by A. H. Johnson and K. H. Walker. Mr. Walker is a traffic expert for .the Reno Chamber of Com merce and was retained by the Eureka body to handle that end of their case. Mr. Sexton was represented by P. A. McCarran of Reno. Ro1ert Richards appeared as counsel for the commis sion. , Meeting for the first time in the new club -rooms in the Heroes' Memorial building, Capitol Post No. 4 of the American Legion last gathered at a special assemblage to considcrplans for the consummation of the state con vention of that organization, to be held here the latter part of June, according to all available information.
