Poulsen, Optometrist and A copy of the supreme court's decision denying a petition "for a writ of mandate to compel Judge Bartlett of the Washoe district court, to order a jury to sit without fees in the damage suit of Melvin F. Phillips against D. F. Capps and Tom Ginocchio, shows that the high court did not base its action on the merits of the petition, but simply held that the process of mandamus was no the proper remedy. The instrument was received today by J. W. Dignan. counsel for Phillips, who, with P. A. McCarran, prosecuted the writ. After digesting the decision, Dignan announced that he would take the matter back to the supreme court by an appeal from Judge Bartlett's original order denying his application for a free jury. The court then must pass upon the question of whether or not the authorities cited by the plaintiff may be applied to Nevada procedure, and if so, whether Phillips is a pauper in the sense that he is entitled to gratuitous jury service. In passing" on the ques tion in the trial court, Judge Bartlett held that Phillips is not a pauper, the man's own statements having shown that he was capable of earning a fair daily wage. Phillips said, he had no money and was temporarily out of employment. . Capps and Ginocchio, teh defendants in the case, are police officers. Phillips claims ' he was subjected to'-brutal treatment at the hands of the patrolmen when they placed him under arrest several months ago. CLEVER FORGERY ft r -r CAUSES ARREST An asserted forgery so cleverly executed that the victim's own brother, failed, to recognize it as such, resulted in the issuance of a complaint today for Hugh Sheldon, an accountants who was apprehended at Fernley late yesterday at the request of the Reno police. Sheldon formerly was fh the employ of J. C. Tranter, a public accountant, and it was Tranter's name that was forged to a check for $38.50 . and also to a : $10 check. The check for the larger amount, upon which the complaint against Sheldon is based, was presented to George F. Tranter, brother of the man whose name was used, and the brother cashed it. The check also was honored by the bank on which it was drawn. Summer Comfort for Growing Feet To us most important consideration in children's shoes is that they shall guide growing feet aright.

WATER DECISION INTERESTS NEVADA Pending the receipt of the full text of the supreme court-decision in the Colorado -Wyoming water case, which was rendered yesterday, stata officials would make no extended comment as t ; the effect the decision would have on water questions in this state. The Colorado-Wyoming case involved the right to waters of the Laramie river which rises in Colorado and flows into Wyoming. Several years ago land around the source of the river was taken up by Colorado peopls and a tunnel driven to carry water zo an irrigation project in Colorado. Water users in Wyoming, further down the Laramie river, contended this diversion prejudiced their rights to the stream and that the diversion in Colora lo was unlawful. The case was submitted to the supreme court after extended litigation and Colorado contended that it had a right to all waters originating in :hat state, regardless of the rights of others on the same stream but in another state. The supreme court decisions enjoined Colorado from taking more than 15,500 second feet of water annually from the Laramie river for the Laj3-mie-Poudre project, and apparently the Colorado contention was not upheld. The case attracted unusual interest among the Western states and the United States reclamation service officials, as similar water problems occur in many places in the West. SUIT ON NOTE Suit was filed in the district court today by R. R. Sischo who seeks to recover $590 alleged to be due on a note from the Allied Land & Live Stock Company, P. Etchecopar and D. Lexalt.
