FAILS IN HIS WORK
AS PER INSTRUCTIONS
Through the obstinacy of D. W.
Cole, who has had charge of the
building of the llshwav at the Derby j
dam on the Truckee river, and who
Is now working Irrespective of plans,
there is a possibility that work on
that enterprise will be discontinued
within the next few days.
When construction of the fl-.'hway
began a few months ago it was to be
done under plans presented by the
Nevada and California Fish conimls
sioons and approved by Franklin K.
La no of the Interior department.
Cole was placed In charge of the
work and for a while implicitly obey
ed instructions. Later, however, he
continued operations without regard
to instruetUonn or anything else and
arbitrarily shortened the ladder way

members of the commission reported

ELECTION HINT
WILL START TOMORROW
The county commissioners mel at
tho usual hour this morning at the
county courthouse and the routine
business was taken up. Mr. Dooher |
who had previously flled his petition
for a recount of tho ballots of tho last
election, was present when the board |
met. At Ids suggestion it was decid
ed to take up and finish all routine
v.orl before taking action ?: the mat- 1
ter of the election contest. ,.s it will
probably take the better part of two
days to complete the work In hand |
tiie contest piattor will not be taken
up until tomorrow afternoon and pos
sibly not until Wednesday.
This case will be watched with
more Interest than any case In Elko
county In many years as .1 ureal deal |
may depend upon Its termination. I
Many Intimate friends of Mr. Me
liride are hoping that Mr. Dooher may |
be successful for the reason that lie
would be in closer sympathy and
touch with Governor-elect IJoyle and
his administration of state affairs.
!? roin the outline o t his policies it is
generally believed that the governor J
Is going to urge the passage of many
beneficial laws, and it If hoped that
he will have a legislature that will I
assist and co-operate with rather than \
hamper hint.
On the outcome of this contest may I
depend which of the two parties will
organize the assembly.

OLDEST SUBSCRIBER
RENEWS SUBSCRIPTION
Oliver Rifle, one of the earliest
pioneer residents of Elko county, paid
the Independent office a viait Satur
day, and left a deposit for a year's
subscription.
The renewal of a subscription or
the entering of a new subscriber is a
common thing indeed, and is not con
sidered worthy of mention, but in the
case of Mr. Iliffe we find one extra
ordinary. He has been a regular sub
scriber for thirty consecutive years,
and was an intimate friend of General
Kelly, S. S. Sears and C. \V. Grover,
former editors, long since passed
away.
Wo are pleased to report Mr. Riffe
as enjoying the best of health despite
liis advanced years. He ?s one of the
youngest, most active and energetic
old gentlemen In th? county. We
wish him a continuation of health and
happiness and hope that he will be
able to continue to enjoy the Indepen
dent for another thirty years at least.

SACRAMENTO MURDER
RECALLS DURANT CASE
i
i
A Sacramento dispatch of the Gth
says: The murdered body of Marga
ret Millings, ten years old, was found
In the basement of a church today by
David ^Fountain, the janitor, who was
dusting up for Sunday. The child
had been atttacked and strangled to
death.
Fountain notilied the Kev. Charles
F. Ochler. pastor of the church, who
in turn notified the police. The jani
tor was taken into custody. He told a
straightaway story which found cor
roboration in some, particulars to
night.
The Millings girl had been meeting
at the church w.. ue companions
twice a week to sow on Christmas
gifts. Today was not a meeting day
and, she Is supposed to have gone to
the church by mistake.
How she got in and who the mur
derer was remained a mystery late to
night. Fountain told the police he
locked the doors upon going to lunch,
and noticed, upon returning that one
of them was open. lie said this could
be corroborated by Denjamin Ochler,
the paster's soon, who was fixing an
automobile near the church and whose
attention. Fountain said, he directed
to the open door. Going to the base
ment after a duster, he found the
body huddled In a corner, strangled
with a cord and with the marks of a
man's hand gouged into the face.
Aspects of the murder thus far re
vealed recalled those of Minnie Wil
liams and Ulanclie Laniont, In San
Francisco in 1895, for which Theodore
Durant was hanged. The victims in
this case, however, were adults.
Fountain, according to a statement
made by the police late tonight, had
made visits to the Milling residence
on several occasions. I)r. Ochler, the
pastor, said that on several occasions
he had rebuked Fountain for his de
meanor towards young girls of the
church and that he had instructed
him not to be familiar with tlu-m.

Kmery Ferguson, a teamster in the
employ of Pete Ogilvie of South Fork,
was seriously Injure*! yesterday af
ternoon when a team which he was
driving, became frightened and ran
away. Ferguson was on his way from
the Ogilvie place to this city with an
other man in the wagon when the
team became frightened. He made
desperate efforts to check their speed
but was unsuccessful and llnally was
thrown out of the wagon. Although
the man who was "In '-the wagon n t
the time with Ferguson escaped un
hurt, Ferguson Buffered two badly
broken legs and if a son of Tom
Rrennan had not passed that way In
an automobile and picked him up It
probable that he would have been
compelled to remain in the road for
an indefinite period of time before
anyone passed who could give him aid.

man to the county hospital where he
Is now being cared for. Although he

that he will eventually recover from

his action by Attorney Otto T. Wil
liams, and the petition asks for a re
count of all voted of the entire coun
ty. Mr. F.ooher was a candidate at
the last election Tor the position of
assemblyman on the Democratic
ticket. Allen O, McBride, who was
the next lowest, was a candidate on
the Republican ticket, and he led Mr.
Boylier by only three votes.
Certain irregularities are known to
have been made in the count in sev
eral precincts, notably in Carlln, and
Mr. Booher expects to overcome the
majority or Mr. McBride and win
out In the recount.
As it is no certainty as to which
party wili have the organization of
the lower house and it may all de
pend upon the result of this contest
it will be watched with keen in
terest ? not only by the people of 101
ko county hut l?y the whole state.
Should the recount result in a tie
vote, which is not at all improbable,
then a new election will be called.
It will not, however, have any effect
on the other candidates.
The interests of Mr. McBride will
be looked after by Attorney E. A.
Klein.
