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.
Yours Very Truly,

TROUBLE FOR TAX
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
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

A customer recently called from Elko County
and in telling us some of bor troubles sbs said her
husband didn't treat her right" We told her she
must dress np and look her beat, even for her hus
band. She purchased an inexpensive hat, a house
dro?a for $1.70 and an afternoon gown for fo.US and
some other necessary apparel. Our advice was to
feed him well and wcur her new clothes. She is de
lighted with the result

It is to be the People's Automobile to contain a
small removable sign, on each side of the car; it will
meet all trains, take customers to and from their
homos for fittings, and when it is not in use it will
be at the disposal of any physician for a patient,
who is in need of a half hours ride. I am in this
contest to win and not as an advertisement.
