an opportunity to make such ans- ?

dations until you have such reason- |
able time to prepare the same as j
you may desire, or l^otifying me

wer.
"I am very truly yours,
Tasker L Oddie,
"Governor"
Judge Frank P. Langar., has is
Bued the following statement con
cerinng State Bank and Trust mat
ters:
"My attitude and feeling con
cerning the receivership of that
Bank and Trust Company and the
serious reflection upon my integ
rity aB a man and as a judge were
fully expressed in my letters to
the Nevada Legislature during the
first session. I can only repeat
them here. I know in my own
car that 1 have endeavored at all
times as a judge to exercise the
best possible judgement of which
I was capable.
I am now reudy to Btand for all
by any fair, calm and impartial
investigation of my administra
tion as judge of this district have
no fear of the truth and am sure
the truth will reveal my official
acts as having been prompted and
carried out by the highest motives
and integrity which my position
commands. Notwithstanding the
attacks made upon mc I have con
tinued and am still striving to
carry out my official duties uninflu
enced by matters out of the court
room and to judge the law and the
facts in accordance with my official
oath.
This I have sworn to do regard
less of consequences. Concerning
my recent ruling in which I declin
ed* to set aside previous orders
made by mo, in that, as well as
other matters submitted to me
I decided in accordance with the
law as I understood it. To have
done otherwise would have been
flagrant violation of my duty. An
appeal has been taken to the Su
premo Court, from this ruling.
The decision of this higher tribun
al I shall cheerfully and mnst
abide, no matter what it may be.
Of course 1 deeply regret the re
flection upon myself and family
and I am eager and anixoui that,
the most searching inquiry be
made. I shall do everything in rny
power to bring out the truth.
1 disclaim any responsibility for
the failure of the State Bank and
Trust Company"

the Western Pacitiie for shipment
to Utah.lt is said the company ha*
, considerable low grade ore on the
dump, of which a good sample

four-horse outfits doing the haul
ing.

been received from Los Angeles
j by Barney Rrothers. It will be

profit from their holdings. Samples

termining the exact value of it.

the state of Nevada who regularly
employ two or more persans. auto
matically came under the provis
ions of the Nevada industrial insur
ance act July, 1 uniess they noti
fied their employes and the Ne
vada industrial commission of their
intention to reject the act. Rejec
tion of the terms and provisions of

definite physical act of notification
as above stated. Failure to give

to acceptance of its terms in full ;
on the part of the employer.
Employers who formally reject
ed the law thereby elect to take
their chances under the common
law as modified by the industrial
insurance act, as to having to pay
damage for personal injuries sus
tained by any of their employes.

MBS. J. W. PUETT
The light of another home went
out Thursday afternoon when Mrs. ;
J. W. Puett crossed over the Great
Divide at her Carlin home.
Mrs. Puett was the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. A. Bruce who passed
away in Elko a few years ago. She
was born in Yanktown, South Da
kota, August 21, 1S74. At an early
age she came to Elko with her par
ents and resided here until her ?
marriage to Mr. John W. Puett of
Carlin on September 2, 1896. Ten
children were the fruits of this un- ,
ion. Seven boys and girls ranging'
in age from sixteen years to eigh
teen months, are bereft of a moth
er's love and a mother's care.
Mrs. Puett was devoted to her
home and family. She lived only!
for them. Now that she is gone
from them, may the memory of
her .^elf- sacrifice and her devotion
to her home be to the children and
father more precious tr.an gold arid
more enduring than brass. May
God guard and protect the mother
less children.
Beside Mr. Puett and children,
three brothers, Alfred, George
and Harry, and two sisters, Miss
Pearl and Mrs. M. II. Cooper, sur
vive her. The bereaved family have
the sympathy of a large circle of
friends in their great sorrow.
The funeral took place at Carlin
this forenoon and was largely at - 1
tended. After the services, the
remains of this loving mother were
hidden from mortal sighf in the
Carlin cemetery. There may her
body rest while her pure spirit finds I
eternal peace on the Evergreen
Shore.

MURDER
? ?
Four Men In Saloon Row
One Dead, Two Are
Near Death
Caliente. New, July 3 ? William
Robinson was instantly killed and
Philip Dubois and Jostph Meyers
were fatally injured in a row
which occurred in the Elk's saloon
here at 2 o'clock. The three men
are said to have ?been shot by
George Hnrper aged 20, who is a
pumpman. Dubois is 38 years of
age, Meyers is 30 and Robinson
was 28.
The trouble is said to have been
precipitated by an argument relat
ing to labor unions, and it is un-j
derstood that Harper accused Rob
inson, Dubois, and Meyers of be
ing "scabs." All four men are
said to have been under the influ
ence of liquor.
After the altereation Harper is
said to have left the saloon. Short
ly afterward, however, he return
ed, and opened fire upon the three
men with whom he had been quar
reling. Robinson was shot through
the head and died almost instantly;
Dubois was shot in the stomach
and Meyers in the head. Robin
son's body was removed to an un
dertaking establishment and the
wounded men were taken to a hos
pital. It is thought both will die.
After the shooting Harper disau
peared. Sheriff Dan RonnoW of
Pioche, Nev, was here today inves
tigating the shooting but obtained
little satisfaction.
