Chap. 57–An Act authorizing and directing the state board of education to renew teachers’ certificates expiring in 1933 and 1934.

 

[Approved March 10, 1933]

 

      Whereas, On account of the great economic depression, causing the suspension of sixteen banks in Nevada, such banks holding therein as deposits a large portion of the state and county school money set aside by law for the payment of teachers’ salaries, many teachers within the State of Nevada are without funds, and consequently will be unable to bear the expense of attending summer schools or to meet all the requirements concerning renewal of their certificates, and thus cannot maintain a standing which will allow the state board of education to renew such certificates; and

and county school money set aside by law for the payment of teachers’ salaries, many teachers within the State of Nevada are without funds, and consequently will be unable to bear the expense of attending summer schools or to meet all the requirements concerning renewal of their certificates, and thus cannot maintain a standing which will allow the state board of education to renew such certificates; and

      Whereas, Many of such certificates will expire during the years 1933 and 1934, with no fault or intent of the holders thereof; and

      Whereas, Such teachers have no other income nor other means of earning a livelihood, and therefore renewal of such certificates without attendance of summer schools will be but a matter of common justice to them, as well as a vast benefit to the patrons of the schools whom they serve; in turn a direct benefit to the whole state; now, therefore,

 

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and

Assembly, do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  During the calendar years 1933 and 1934 it is hereby made the duty of the state board of education, and the particular officers charged with the execution of such duty, to renew each and every certificate of each and every teacher holding the same who has in all other respects complied with the laws of the State of Nevada pertaining thereto, which at any time during said years shall expire, upon the application in writing of the holder or holders thereof, stating the grounds or reason for the renewal of such certificate or certificates.

      This act shall not be construed to apply to any case wherein a certificate has expired previous to the approval of this act.

      Sec. 2.  Nothing in this act shall be held to supersede or conflict with the state board of education in relation to holding summer schools for the benefit of teachers who may be financially able and who desire to attend summer schools to be held in the years 1933 and 1934 in Nevada.

Chap. 59–An Act to suspend interest payments and delinquent penalties upon taxes for the year 1932, payable on or before the first Monday in December, 1932.

 

[Approved March 10, 1933]

 

      Whereas, Owing to the general demoralization of the farming industry in various sections within the State of Nevada, and the inadequate market for farm crops during the year 1932, and previous thereto, many and divers taxpayers and citizens were unable to pay taxes due unto various counties and unto the State of Nevada at the time payment was due, on or before the first Monday in December, 1932; and

      Whereas, By reason thereof taxes in large amounts and by a multitude of persons have become delinquent in various counties of the State of Nevada; and

      Whereas, If the original taxes due the various counties and the state by reason of the conditions aforesaid were paid without assessing and collecting the usual fifteen per cent penalty and the three per cent per month interest rate due under the law, a vast amount of these taxes would be paid, and the counties and state would get the benefit, at the present time, of the tax money, and a great many of the properties would not be sold to the county for delinquent taxes and penalties; and


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1933 Statutes of Nevada, Page 67 (CHAPTER 59, Senate Substitute for Assembly Bill No. 3)ê

 

paid without assessing and collecting the usual fifteen per cent penalty and the three per cent per month interest rate due under the law, a vast amount of these taxes would be paid, and the counties and state would get the benefit, at the present time, of the tax money, and a great many of the properties would not be sold to the county for delinquent taxes and penalties; and

      Whereas, If some relief is not given in these cases, a great many of the taxpayers will not pay their taxes, and the various counties will be burdened with ownership of lands which will rapidly deteriorate in value and be a liability to state and counties.

 

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and

Assembly, do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  The county treasurers, as ex officio tax receivers of the various counties of the State of Nevada, are hereby authorized, empowered and directed to accept all taxes, exclusive of penalties, interest and costs upon all property, real or personal, appearing upon their various assessment rolls, and upon which taxes were due the first Monday in December, 1932, for and upon all property assessed in each county for the year ending December 31, 1932; provided, that said taxes shall be paid by the property owner, in full amount, exclusive of penalties, costs and interest charges on or before midnight of June 1, A. D. 1933.

      Sec. 2.  This act shall be deemed to be a relief act for all delinquent taxpayers within the State of Nevada, for the period described in section 1, and shall not be extended to or be operative for any other period.

      Sec. 3.  The county auditors of the various counties of the State of Nevada and the state controller and the Nevada tax commission of the State of Nevada and all other officers and agents of the various counties and state are hereby authorized, directed and empowered, where the tax, exclusive of penalties and interest mentioned in section 1 hereof, shall have been by the property owner paid, to credit the tax receiver with and charge off said delinquencies, penalties, costs and interest. If any taxpayers shall have paid any penalty for delinquency for said year, prior to the passage and approval of this act, the county commissioners of the proper county, upon satisfactory proof thereof, shall allow a refund therefor and direct the payment of the same.

      Sec. 4.  This act shall expire by limitation at midnight upon June 1, 1933.

      Section 1.  Section 1 of the above-entitled act, being paragraph 8490 N. C. L. 1929, is hereby amended to read as follows:

      Section 1.  Witnesses required to attend in the courts of this state shall receive the following compensation:

      For attending in any criminal case, or civil suit or proceeding before a court of record, referee or commissioner, or before the grand jury, in obedience to a subpena, four dollars for each day’s attendance, which shall include Sundays and holidays.

      For attending in a civil suit or proceeding before a justice of the peace, three dollars for each day’s attendance, which shall include Sundays and holidays.

      Mileage shall be allowed and paid at the rate of fifteen cents a mile, one way only, for each mile necessarily and actually traveled by the shortest and most practical route; provided, however, that no person shall be obliged to testify in a civil action or proceeding unless his mileage and fees for at least one day’s attendance shall have been tendered or paid him or he shall not have demanded the same; and provided further, that no person shall be obliged to testify in a civil action or proceeding unless his mileage and at least one day’s fees shall have been paid him if he demanded the same.

      Witness fees in civil cases shall be taxed as disbursement costs against the defeated party, upon proof by affidavit that they have been actually incurred. Costs shall not be allowed for more than two witnesses to the same fact or series of facts, nor shall a party plaintiff or defendant be allowed any fees or mileage for attendance as a witness in his own behalf.

      No per diem or mileage shall be allowed or paid to witnesses in criminal cases in justice courts; provided, however, in preliminary examinations, where witnesses are compelled to travel a greater distance than fifteen miles one way, they shall be paid fifteen cents per mile one way only for each mile necessarily and actually traveled by the shortest and most practical route, and in addition be paid four dollars a day for each day that they are actually in attendance (which shall include Sundays and holidays), which said claim, when itemized in detail, shall be allowed, audited and paid as are other claims against the county; and provided further, that before any such claim shall be allowed, audited or paid as herein provided, the district attorney and magistrate shall certify thereon that the person in whose behalf such claim is made was a necessary and material witness at such hearing or examination; that the hearing necessarily consumed the number of days for which compensation is claimed; that the claim is correct and that the attendance of such witness was required before such magistrate.

a day for each day that they are actually in attendance (which shall include Sundays and holidays), which said claim, when itemized in detail, shall be allowed, audited and paid as are other claims against the county; and provided further, that before any such claim shall be allowed, audited or paid as herein provided, the district attorney and magistrate shall certify thereon that the person in whose behalf such claim is made was a necessary and material witness at such hearing or examination; that the hearing necessarily consumed the number of days for which compensation is claimed; that the claim is correct and that the attendance of such witness was required before such magistrate.

      Sec. 2.  Section 2 of the above-entitled act, being paragraph 8491, N. C. L. 1929, is hereby amended to read as follows:

      Section 2.  Each person summoned to attend as a grand or trial juror, unless on or before the day he is summoned to attend he be excused by the court at his own request from serving, shall receive (except as hereinafter provided) four dollars per day for each day he may be in attendance, which shall include Sundays and holidays, and fifteen cents a mile for each mile necessarily and actually traveled by the shortest and most practical route, one way only; provided, however, that where the mileage does not exceed one mile no allowance shall be made therefor.

      In civil cases the per diem of each juror engaged in the trial of the cause shall be paid each day in advance to the clerk of the court, or the justice of the peace, by the party who shall have demanded the jury; but in case the party paying such fees shall be the prevailing party, the fees so paid shall be recoverable as costs from the losing party. If the jury from any cause be discharged in a civil action without finding a verdict, and the party who demands the jury shall afterwards obtain judgment, the fees so paid shall be recoverable as costs from the losing party.

      Jurors actually sworn and serving in civil cases or proceedings in justice courts shall receive three dollars per day as full compensation for each day of said service.

      No fees shall be allowed nor mileage paid trial jurors in criminal cases in justice courts.

      The fees paid jurors by the county clerk for services in a civil action or proceeding (which he has received from the party demanding the jury), shall be deducted from the total amount due them for attendance as such jurors, and the balance only shall be a charge against the county; provided, however, the fees for the first day’s attendance and each additional day to and including the day the jury is impaneled shall be a charge against and be paid by the county.

      Coroners’ jurors (with not more than three persons upon the jury) shall be entitled to receive for each day’s service two dollars and fifty cents, to be certified to the county clerk by the coroner, and audited, allowed and paid as are other claims against the county; provided, however, that when it is necessary for a coroner’s jury to travel a greater distance than one mile to view the remains, or to the place where the inquisition is held, the necessary and actual expenses incurred by the said coroner for the transportation of the jury shall be allowed, audited and paid as are other claims against the county, after having been duly certified to by the said coroner.

[Assembly Bill No. 247–Lincoln County Delegation]

 

Chap. 72–An Act for the relief of Francis M. Seegmiller.

 

[Approved March 16, 1933]

 

      Whereas, Francis M. Seegmiller was engaged under contract by the Lincoln County board of education as a high school mathematics teacher for the school year of 1929-1930, at a salary of $1,600 for nine months of school, payable in ten monthly installments of $160 each; and

      Whereas, He faithfully performed all duties required of him under said contract for a period of seven months, but actually received only four vouchers, each in the sum of $160, a total of $640 out of the total of $1,244.44 which he had earned, owing to the fact that payment on school orders was stopped by the state board of education when it failed to issue a high school certificate to said Francis M. Seegmiller because he lacked the required hours of practice teaching; and

      Whereas, The balance due has been ever since held in the Lincoln County high school fund for the specific purpose of paying the balance believed to be due, but which cannot be paid legally without legislative action.

 

The People of the State of Nevada, represented in Senate and

Assembly, do enact as follows:

 

      Section 1.  The board of education of the county of Lincoln is hereby authorized and directed to issue its school order to Francis M. Seegmiller covering balance due for services rendered as teacher of mathematics in the Lincoln County high school at Panaca during the year 1929-1930, in the sum of $604.44.

      Sec. 2.  Upon issuance of said school order, the county auditor shall draw his warrant upon the county treasurer in the amount of said balance due, less the sum of six dollars to be deducted for teachers’ retirement fund, and the county treasurer shall pay the same out of the Lincoln County high school fund.

      Sec. 3.  This act shall become effective upon its passage and approval.

      Section 210 1/2.  If the property levied on is claimed by a third person as his property by a written claim verified by his oath or that of his agent, setting out his right to the possession thereof, and served upon the sheriff, the sheriff must release the property if the plaintiff, or the person in whose favor the writ of attachment runs, fails within five days after written demand to give the sheriff an undertaking executed by at least two good and sufficient sureties in a sum equal to double the value of the property levied on.

days after written demand to give the sheriff an undertaking executed by at least two good and sufficient sureties in a sum equal to double the value of the property levied on. If such undertaking be given, the sheriff shall hold the property. The sheriff, however, shall not be liable for damages to any such third person for the taking or keeping of such property if no claim is filed by any such third party.

If at any time during said thirty days, a petition signed by qualified electors numbering not less than 20 per cent of those who voted at the last preceding general municipal election, requesting the repeal of the ordinance or its submission to a referendum, be presented to the board, such ordinance shall thereupon be suspended from going into operation, and it shall be the duty of the board to reconsider such ordinance.

      Any proposed ordinance, resolution or amendment to this charter, may be submitted to the board by petition signed by qualified electors numbering not less than 20 per cent of those who voted at the last preceding general city election. The form, sufficiency and regularity of such petitions shall be determined in the manner herein provided. The petition presenting the proposed ordinance, resolution or amendment shall contain a statement in not more than 200 words giving the petitioners’ reason why such ordinance, resolution or amendment should be adopted; and if such petition shall contain a request that the said ordinance, resolution or amendment be submitted to a vote of the people, the board shall either (a) pass such ordinance without alteration at its next regular meeting, after the sufficiency of said petition has been determined and certified to by the clerk, or (b) immediately after its refusal to pass such ordinance, resolution or amendment at such meeting, and after certification by the clerk as to the sufficiency of the petition, call a special election, unless a general city election is to be held within ninety days thereafter, and at such special or general election submit such proposed ordinance, resolution or amendment without alteration to a vote of the electors of the city.
