FILE NUMBER 26

ASSEMBLY JOINT RESOLUTION–Memorializing the Federal Power Commission and the congressional delegation of the State of Nevada in favor of the Rock Springs Project and calling their attention to the importance of such project to the people of the State of Nevada.

 

      Whereas, An application was filed in September 1958, whereby certain pipeline companies sought authority to build a pipeline from Wyoming through Nevada to California, such application being known as the Rock Springs Project; and

      Whereas, Such project would result in the construction of approximately 130 miles of pipeline within the State of Nevada, at an estimated cost of $15,500,000, and the construction of a great compressor system at an estimated cost of $3,000,000, for a total installation of $18,500,000 in taxable property; and

      Whereas, The completion of this project would result in an additional and greater source of private and industrial power to the people of the State of Nevada and because of closer transmission a resulting lesser cost would be of considerable economic value to the people of the State of Nevada; and

      Whereas, If the Rock Springs Project is not approved by the Federal Power Commission a substantial rate increase for private and industrial power is anticipated in the Reno-Sparks area as well as other areas now being served by existing power companies; and

      Whereas, A. J. Maestretti was a member of a well-known Nevada pioneer family and was a resident of Nevada throughout the major part of his illustrious 88 years; and

      Whereas, The capricious Secretary of the Interior, although attempting to refute the imputation that the Bureau of Land Management is “anti-grazing,” recently announced a plan for substantial increases in fees for graziers using the public lands for the alleged purposes of preventing a further decline of western grazing areas and for the rehabilitation of range lands, and with fantastic caprice indicted public land graziers for “not paying their fair share for the resource which directly benefits them”; and

the rehabilitation of range lands, and with fantastic caprice indicted public land graziers for “not paying their fair share for the resource which directly benefits them”; and

      Whereas, The Secretary of the Interior, wearing a halo of economic discrimination, has termed this alleged abuse of public lands a “national disgrace,” and with true bureaucratic lamentation has observed that “the nation is peering over our shoulder and it does not like what it sees”; and

      Whereas, We agree that the nation might not like what it sees, when it observes the Bureau of Land Management, the tapeworm of the livestock industry, inelastic because of administrative paralysis, pursuing a plan of officeholder perpetuation coupled with high administrative costs and an outmoded policy of land control developed over a century ago; and

      Whereas, Although it is unlikely that it could happen, if the Bureau of Land Management would evidence some administrative efficiency and adopt businesslike methods the proposed plan of grazing fee increases would be unnecessary; and

      Whereas, If this unrealistic plan of the Secretary of the Interior becomes effective it will result in the destruction of an industry vital to our Nevada economy; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Senate and the Assembly of the State of Nevada, jointly, That this 52nd session of the legislature of the State of Nevada, not particularly treasuring (as apparently does the Secretary of the Interior) “the frontier spirit and flaming independence of the western stockman,” but realizing that the very lifeblood of our livestock producers, economically dependent on the use of public lands, is at stake, hereby vigorously opposes and categorically condemns any proposed increase in grazing fees for the use of public lands, and entreats the members of Nevada’s congressional delegation to unite in their efforts to defeat the proposed ademption of the legacy of the Nevada livestock industry; and be it further

of that imposing order for the issuance of a charter and the institution of a chapter to be located in historic Virginia City, Nevada, and to be known and designated as the Julia C. Bulette Chapter; and

      Whereas, The granting of the requested charter for the Julia C. Bulette Chapter would advance the cause of Clamperdom throughout the historic West by allowing Nevada citizens, residents of the Silver State and descendants of the argonauts, to receive the ennobling Staff of Relief and be commended thus to the kindness and protection of all Clampers, Clampatriots, Vituscans and Frolicking Friars throughout the known world; and

      Whereas, Virginia City, the star of the Comstock, rich in historic mining lore, is a proper site from which the banner of E Clampus Vitus should, in all its glory, wave forever; and

      Whereas, The very name chose for the proposed chapter, “Julia C. Bulette,” is most appropriate, bringing to one’s mind a picture of the tender loving care offered to the Comstock miner by that lady in times of need; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Assembly of the State of Nevada, the Senate concurring, That the 52nd session of the legislature of the State of Nevada hereby supports and approves of the petition hereinbefore described and recommends to the Grand Council of the Ancient and Honorable Order of E Clampus Vitus that affirmative, positive action be taken on such petition in order that the Julia C. Bulette Chapter of E Clampus Vitus may be instituted in historic Virginia City, Nevada, with creditable pageantry and commemoration.

      Whereas, The establishment of a national cemetery in Nevada could be accomplished at low cost to the Federal Government, the United States being the owner of 87 percent of the land area of the state, and the Department of the Army having estimated the cost of establishing a national cemetery consisting of 53 acres and having a grave capacity of 30,240 at $630,000, or consisting of 31 acres and having a grave capacity of 15,120 at $440,800; and

      Whereas, The average cost of burial of a veteran in Nevada in a private cemetery, according to statistics of the Department of Defense, is $765, including undertaking service, the average cost of a private cemetery plat being $150; and

      Whereas, In 1789, the people of America were fearful that government might restrict their freedom and, through the first Congress of the United States, proposed a Bill of Rights essentially telling the government what it may not do, which limitations upon government were adopted by the people and are clearly set forth in the first 10 amendments to the Constitution of the United States; and

      Whereas, That Bill of Rights has had a profound impact upon the history of the world, evidenced, among other examples, by the fact that 40 million immigrants gave up everything to come to this new land, seeking something promised here, and only here; and

      Whereas, Even though many other countries have abundant natural resources, vast vacant lands and climates as beneficial as the United States, those people elected to come here because of the promise of security, freedom and the precious right to live as free men with equal opportunity for all; and

      Whereas, In July of 1868, a new guarantee of freedom was ratified having as its purpose freedom for the slave race but still guaranteeing equal protection for all, which new guarantee is contained in the 14th amendment to the Federal Constitution, quoted, in part, as follows:

“No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”;

      Whereas, NADA conventions provide a once-a-year opportunity for the automobile dealers of America to assemble to exchange view-points, to discuss their mutual problems, to study and resolve many matters of vital interest to this important segment of American business, and to plan for the future in the best interest of all such dealers and the American public which makes up their customers; and

      Whereas, At the annual NADA conventions, the automobile dealers are provided with an opportunity to meet the executives of the automobile-manufacturing companies and to appraise the very “top brass” of the problems confronted by such dealers, their millions of customers and the American public at large, thus placing the manufacturers of the vehicles upon which America has now become so dependent in a better position to continue to improve such vehicles and to serve this country in the great traditions of free enterprise; and

      Whereas, Such conventions provide an opportunity for the automobile dealers to meet “home office” executives of the finance institutions which serve so vital a function in the myriad credit transactions by which such dealers conduct the business of putting wheels beneath the people and products of this great land of progress and freedom; and

      Whereas, The exhibition of vehicles and related equipment and tools which is a part of every NADA convention is recognized throughout the world as one of the highly important trade shows of the automotive industry, attracting the nation’s biggest equipment manufacturers and producers of services for the retail automobile industry, resulting inevitably in progress and other vast benefits for all concerned; and

      Whereas, The State of Nevada and the City of Las Vegas are highly honored to be selected as the 1965 host to the NADA convention; now, therefore, be it

      Resolved by the Assembly of the State of Nevada, the Senate concurring, That the legislature of the State of Nevada and the citizens it represents extend sincere appreciation to the National Automobile Dealers Association for selecting Nevada as the site of its convention.

Senate Joint Resolution No. 13–Senator Lemaire

FILE NUMBER 79

SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION–Memorializing the President of the United States and the Postmaster General to cause to be issued a postage stamp in commemoration of Ruel Colt Gridley.

 

      Whereas, In the early 1860’s, Ruel Colt Gridley, a boyhood friend and neighbor of Mark Twain from Hannibal, Missouri, and a veteran having served with the Armed Forces of the United States in its war with Mexico, came west to the mining camp of Austin, Lander County, in the Territory of Nevada, where he built a building and entered into a successful business as a merchant of groceries and provisions; and

      Whereas, In 1864, as Austin was growing from a camp into a town, the terrible Civil War between the states was raging to the south and east, stirring the souls of patriots, awakening and strengthening the political beliefs of all Americans, and leaving in its wake many thousands of wounded, crippled and suffering soldiers in such rude hospitals and rest camps as were known and available at that time; and

      Whereas, There existed at that time a country-wide movement known as The Sanitary Fund, a forerunner of the American Red Cross, administered by a great number of humanitarian volunteers to raise money with which to buy food, clothing and medical supplies for such sick and wounded soldiers; and

      Whereas, During April of 1864, the town of Austin prepared for its first municipal election for the purpose of adopting a charter and electing its first mayor and other city officials; and

      Whereas, Although sympathetic to the cause of the South and of the political convictions of the group locally referred to as “copperheads,” Gridley was a man of integrity, dedicated to the principles of democracy, willing to abide by the dictates of the people of his land as expressed through democratic processes of legislation and law; and

 


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

ê1963 Statutes of Nevada, Page 1448 (File Number 79, SJR 13)ê

 

of democracy, willing to abide by the dictates of the people of his land as expressed through democratic processes of legislation and law; and

      Whereas, In the good-natured manner of respectable and respected men of opposite convictions, Gridley entered into a wager with a friendly member of the opposite political group, whereby Gridley pledged himself to carry a sack of flour upon his shoulder for some distance while the local brass band played “Old John Brown,” in the event one David E. Buel, the Democratic Party candidate for mayor, should be defeated in the election; and

      Whereas, Buel was defeated at the polls on April 19, 1864; and

      Whereas, The people of Austin, having spoken through the process of democracy, Gridley paid off his bet by decorating the sack of flours with ribbons and flags and marching across Austin, accompanied by his young son carrying a flag of the United States, following a procession consisting of the newly elected mayor and city officials mounted on fine horses, in turn followed by the Democratic Central Committee carrying flags in honor of this country and carrying a sponge to be “thrown in” at an appropriate time during the ceremonies and a new broom with which to signify a “clean sweep” for the opposing political forces and a “clean house” at the end of the newly begun terms of office, and accompanied by the local band playing the prescribed marching song; and

      Whereas, Upon fulfilling the obligations of his lost wager and reflecting the best qualities of American good sportsmanship and statesmanship, Gridley offered to sell his decorated sack of flour for $200 to be contributed to the Sanitary Fund, thus setting in motion a completive bidding situation whereby person after person purchased the sack of flour then rededicated it to be sold again for the same purpose; and

      Whereas, The story of the sack of flour was published in newspapers and otherwise carried throughout the country with the result that, during the following 9 months, Gridley traveled from San Francisco to New York and many other places across the country, selling the sack of flour over and over again for the purpose of raising funds for the Sanitary Fund; and

      Whereas, By the time Gridley returned to his home he had raised a substantial sum of money, estimated to be more than $200,000, all of which was delivered to the Sanitary Fund for the benefit of ill and wounded soldiers; and

      Whereas, It is fitting that the the story of this deed and the evidence of democracy and humanitarianism in action which preceded and surrounded it should be again published and made known to this generation of Americans as another instance of proof that the good deeds of men continue to live on long after death has removed their doer from this world and as an example of the valuable results which may come from even small instances of good-natured and good-humored fellowship in democracy; and

      Whereas, The issuance of a postage stamp of the United States commemorating the life and the deeds of Ruel Colt Gridley would serve in a most magnificent and fitting way to fulfill the purposes behind this resolution; now, therefore, be it
