                         May 21, 1910

The Board of Regents met at its Office at 2 o'clock P.M., May
21, 1910.  Present, Regents Sunderland, Henderson, Sullivan,
Williams and Codd, and President Stubbs.  The meeting was called
to order by Chairman Sunderland.  Secretary Taylor being absent,
Regent Codd was elected temporary Secretary for the meeting.

President Stubbs brought before the Board the matter of a horse
dying after a trip made by Professor Hartman and Principal Howard
of Elko while on a trip of inspection for the University, Profes-
sor Hartman being one of the Committee on Accrediting Schools,
and going from Elko to Lamoille.  Thompson and Smiley, the Livery
Company, say they will sue the University to recover $150, their
value on the horse.  The Regents feel that the drivers of the
horse are not at fault, and that we cannot be held responsible,
and the President is instructed to employ E. E. Caine, an attor-
ney of Elko, to fight the case, he to be paid out of University
funds.  Moved by Williams, seconded by Henderson, and carried.

It was moved by Williams, seconded by Henderson, that the follow-
ing resolution be adopted.  The motion was carried.
