A.S. Halsted telegram to Fred R. McNamee, Aug. 7, 1922, page 2

Full Text

- 2 - a point to do this because of seriousness of situation at Las Vegas and total lack of support from State authorities. If Federal officers reluctant to assume this responsibility suggest to them that we will be glad to take up matter with Department of Justice at Washington. Comstock anxious to begin handling trains in front of passenger depot and marshal should be given sufficient aids to protect this work as independent of injunction present handling of trains in yards is delaying and therefore interfering with interstate trains and mails. Think in view of positive identification of Zentmeyer [i.e., Zentmyer] we should demand of Governor that he either order arrests made or instruct District Attorney to impanel grand jury for investigation. Even if grand jury hearing results in farce it at least will have effect of showing up attitude local authorities. What are your views on this matter? Keep me fully advised here. A. S. HALSTED.
