GREATER HUMBOLDT
IRRIGATION PROJECT
E C McClellun and C Arthur
Stephens, of San FrancUco, return
ed to Elko from a seven days trip,
of Ncrlh ForU, interviewing the
watpr users ir. the Greater Hum
boldt Corporation. Without one
exception all who were seen came j
into the company. It proves that
the people are fully alive to the
possibilities of wuter development
ill the valley, and are ready and
anxious to receive the benefits of
it.
Mr McClellan reports now that
there has been $13, 575. 00 subscrib
ed. Of this amount, $6280.00 cover
land around Lovelock; $2345.00
south of the railroad and $-1950.00
north.
The subscription list now num
bers J. J. Hylton, J. E. Williams,
Geo. W. Hanna, C. A Toyn, C. A.
Clayton, Drown Bros., G. M. Bow
er, Andrew Westland, Jas. T. Hol
land, Mrs Ella Adatns, I'. J. Ogil
vie, E. C. Kidded, F. T. Hunter,
Frank Smiley, C. A. and L. M
Laing, M. B. Connell, F. C. Ruth
erford, R. and H. Morse. C. L.
Nickols, Geo. E Hlundcll, J.E.Smith,
Hylton and Clayton Brop., S. A.
and R Tucker in Elko County.
The heaviest subscribers to date
is the Lovelock Land and Sugar
Co., with S5, 000.00.
As less than one tenth of the
water users in the * valley have
been seen, ami many of ihose sub
scribing last fall and winter said
they would take more lefsr, there
seems very little doubt but what
he watei uters will C8rry out the
plans themselves as if is estimated
j about $5,000 will cover what is re
quired; but there will be no trou
ble in securing money from the
outside now to make up any defic
iency in subscriptions.
Mr. Stephen is enthusiastic over
what he has seen of the country
so far and >-ays Nevada is going
' to be his Mate from now on. He
iwas royally treated on this trip
and had his first feast on fage
chicken.
' PULLMAN TO PAY
ITS TAXES
i Eud of two year's contest settled
out of Court
Litigation is ended
District Attorney Carville ha?
been notified by the Pullman Palace
. Car company that it will pay taxes
accrued against that corporation
I and hereafter pay like any ordinary
citizen of Elko county. This change
of heart comes as a surprise to
, everybody an it was stated that the
case would be fought to the Inst
I ditch.
The amount involved for the lust
year is $1880.20, find this year the
I amount of the Pullman taxes will
be fully as much and possibly more.
Hy the settlement the company pays
nil costs ?nd the county will he
enriched to the extent of nearly
$2000. The Pullman Company
realized that a fight in the courts
was hopeless and that in the end it
would be obliged to pay the whole
umount assessed anyway, so the
company came otT its high horse
and agreed to pay its taxes like
any good citizens. A letter tft Dis
trict Attorney Carville says the
check for the $1880.26 taxes for
1012 will be sent to Elko in a day
or two and the 1913 taxes will be
paid promptly.

WHAT NEWSPAPER MEN
ARE GOOD FOR
An Exchange remarks: "What'* ^
a newspaper man good for anyhow* .
Liste!
"If some fellow or bunch of fel
lows have an ax to grind, and the
paper can be of benefit to them in
furthering their scheme, then the
newspaper man is a good fellow.
"If the court house is in danger |
of removal, to the detriment of |
the business interests and the prop-j
erty owners, and the newspapers
howl and snort to keeps the coun- j
ty seat here, without money and |
without price, then the newspaper
man is a good fellow.
"If somebody or some institution
wants something for nothing and
the newspaper man is sucker
enough to give it then he is a good
fellow.
JAPS FINO WAY
TO EVADE LAW
San Francisco, July 28 - Japa
nese land c.wners of California have
fouf.d a loon-hole in the anti-land
law which will enable them to es
tablish practically perpetual owner
ship of land now acquired, for
themselves and their heirs, thus
defeating that provi.-iun of the act
which was designed to eventually
force them out of ownership by
death.
Incorporation is the weapon to
which the Japanese farmer is re
sorting to partially nullify the new
law. Oriental farmers are combin
ing their farm land units and in
corporating block companies in
the belief that the stock compan
ies in the coporntions upon their
deaths may be transferred to heirs.
The maximum life granted lo a
domestic corporation under the
California law is 50 years. All of
the Japanese land corporations that
have been organized since the alien
was passed are forni'd for the lim
it. The Califorina law also pro
vides that corporation is privileged
to reincorporate the at expiraton
of its charter.
Figuring that their tenure of
farming property will be safe for
at least 50 years, or as long as
they CHfi expect to live, dozens of
fares from Fresno Florin, Newcos
tle'and other Japanese colonies arc
rushing to file articles of incorpor
tion with the secretary of state, be
fore the law becomes effective,
August 10.
Twenty four Japanese land com
panies filed articles of corporation
yesterday, bringing the total for
the last two weeks up to more
than fifty. Reports from several
county recorders indicate that with
in the next week the secretary of
state can expcct hundreds of other
land companies.

PRINTING THE TUX LIST
At the last session of the State
legislature section 16 of "An Act
to provide revenue for the state of
Nevada and other matters relative
thereto" was amended and provid
ed that the Assessor should have
th<> assessment roll printed on or
before the first Monday in Septem
ber and the legislature went further
than this. It provided that the
board of county commisioners
should arrange to pay for the print
ing of the same and they should al
low the claim when it was present
ed.
It is rather a strange proceed
ing to call for bids and get the
lowest bids from some pap^r that
wants to "scale" on the rates, and
then give it to some other fellow
who will do the work for the "scab"
price. The law appears to be on
the side of the assessor and County
Commissioners. In fa*;t, they sim
ply followed the letter, if not the
spirit of the law. The last legisla
ture certainly takes ^ie cake for the
ambiguout wording of more than
one piece of important legislation
However, one thing is certain
printers are not likely to break
; their necks to put in low bids when
there is no certainty that they will
get the work even though they bid
i below all competitors.
They did not tell the assessor
where it should he printed but aitn
Dly told him that there was that
sum of money for him to use for
the purpose. This under the advice
of Attorney Moore, and in strict
conformity witn the law as passed
by the last legislature.
Conrary to thp statement of the
Reno morning paper, the board of
county commissioners did not take
unto themselves an> privileges that
are connected with the assessor's
office. but simply did as the law
tells them to. They arranged for
the printing of the roll and in do
ing so set aside a stipulated sum
for the purpose.
The assessor is perfectly free to
have the printing done where he
will, tis long as he confines himself
to the amount stated.
The Reno paj ers are having a
row ovr the printing of this liste
under the new law. The county
Commissioners called for bids and
the following prices were revealed
when the bids were ocened.
Sparks Tribune $750
Reno Journal 490
Reno Ga/.el te GOO
The White Co 620
The Nevada I'ress 625
After reading the bids the board
took action and then and there set
aside from the monies in the county
treasury the sum of $490 for the
printing of the tax roll.
