OKO DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE Elko. N't'V., Sept. 18th, 11U3. E-Htor Elko Independent, I have been so busy for the pa t few days that 1 have been unahh until now to give my version of tlr Klko Development League contro ter.' y. ,)Ut is Bs '"Hows:? In Mr Gray's article in your issue of September Gth, he f..y. that h s predecessor made no re port to him, nor turned over ony cf the membership application blank, to, but he was given a list ot the member with some marked i ail ar.d that upon investigation ho found some who were nut so 111 rl eii had puid one year's dues. I w ?r t tj ?ay that Ht the time 1 waesu: r ceded b> Mr. Gray, he >va> at t ;r son and did not return here u til the legislature adjoined and th.it ail the papers of the Leugue, gether with the membership bl; arid the I it t of members was tur I ot*?r by iny-elf to thp First Nati- i ? al Hark, whose President, Mr. Kimball, wus also President of the League. Mr. Kimball was in Silt Lake at the time and 1 left the package at the hank with insti tiun? to give it to hirn when he r turned, which 1 suppose was <1 and w lien Mr Gray was given tl list of members, I cannot umi r stand why the other papers w it not givjn to him also. Mot kn- .v ing what li t of members Mr '1 received, I do not know who r j have bt en marked paid or ott : ? wise, but I am enclosi ? jou ' >?: ' Treasurer's list of those wh" i their fees either to hirn or to i self d iring my term as Secrctar . 1 ? a list by the way which was ! ways easy of access to Mr tir ? y . " and which did not necesbitnti ;> very strenuous investigation uj r ' his pa't to determine who l:a I p aii<l who not ? and lest there i < some doubt in the minds of ? people of this county as to whet ' soir.e who have paid their due; to the League, may not have r< i ed credit for the same, I want ti say that if any member who p his dues either to myself or to Mr I Hender : >n between the dat.- I v Dec., 4t*?. 11M2 and April Mi 11)13 inclusive dms not find ! itarre among those of the cnclo. il list nn ' w.'l produce any evider of any payment to either oni of >i I will immediately pay the tain to the treasurer.

TROUBLE FOR TAX COMMISSIONERS i lie Elko County Commissioners "ounty auditor, district attorney and several other lawyers met in an j informal way this morning to dis cuss the rulings, edicts and com niands of the Stute Tax Commiss ; ">n. No decision was reached on nny point except that it appears i to be the gencnl opinion that the |l"..ko C ounty Tax rolls shall not ; leave the county. The old law which' in no way has been repealed or in* rfcred with by the new law pro ; vides who of the County officers ' : il'l 'je custodians of the tax rolls ; u <1 the date such officers shall re |cci\e them and hold them and then turn them over to the next official. By the time the rolls j i ' ach the County Treasurer the time limits set by law will be com plied with and there will he no ??i anc- i r the Tax Commission to t-> s' rab the rolls in the meantime. The county commissioners are in! receipt of a letter from the State C mmission ordering the county ! commissioners to hurry up their! equalization work and send the i rolls to Carson. 'I here is no au thorityjn the new law to back up eh a demand and the old law till in f?,rce so arranges the dis position (.f the custody of these r?'Il> i u the Tax Commissioner's demand for immediate surrender of the tax rolls cannot be complied with. As a result the Tax Com mission will not get the tax rolls, "me of the lawyers present this v rning intimated that if the rolls diil go to Carson that some tax :yer might start a suit against his taxes on the ground rJls were not in the county and thereby the whole iiinty tax assessment would be <1 up, as what affected one wculd vt everybody. There was also an intimation that the law creating the lax Commission and vesting it with power had been passed irre gularly and if a tight *'as necess ary the history of this alleged irro ular and illegal legi lation would l>e exposed and on its merits it would L?e shown the law was inop rative as a consequence of the four.-e by which i; was passed. An other phase which may be a serious stumbling block to the Tax Com - in is that the matter may be thr wn into t he United States courts and the possibility of n vio lation r.f the United States consti tution shown. 1'lie more the Tax Commission gone into the more helpless the state body appears. ATTEMPTS TO END LIFE William Dunstan attempted to inii hi? life last night at about ten ock by placing a rope around l is neck and jumping from the sec < mi story ( $ Thompson's livery sta l If. Several men in Hie office heard the thud of Dunstan's falling body ml rushed out where they found him dangling from the end of a rope. They removed the rope from about his neck and found him uninjured except a little skin was knocked otf about his neck. Dunstnn was arrested and locked up. It is probable that a charge > f attempted self destruction will I ? placed against him. No known reason is stated for his rash actl ut despondency is supposed to be1 responsible.
