                      Supplemental Pleading

              Application for Writ of Habeas Corpus


     Now comes Dan Leslie Meador, as and for himself and his next

friend,  Wayne  Richard,  Gunwall,  to  enter  this  supplemental

pleading  and   attending  exhibits  in  support  of  Plaintiffs'

original Application  for Writ  of Habeas  Corpus. The reason for

addition is  that evidence  supporting this supplemental pleading

was not  secured until  Friday, May 16, 1997, at a time which was

too late  to construct the pleading and get in the mail on Friday

or Saturday of the week immediately past.

     The exhibits  are as  follows: A  cover letter  to Plaintiff

from David  K.  Smith,  the  State-Federal  Coordinator  for  the

Oklahoma Tax Commission, a true and correct copy of the Agreement

on Coordination of Tax Administration executed in 1982-83 between

a former commissioner of the Oklahoma Tax Commission and a former


         Dan Leslie, Meador, et al. v. Stephen C. Lewis:
                          Page 1 of 7


Commissioner of  Internal Revenue,  and a  response  letter  from

Plaintiff to  Robert E.  Anderson, chairman  of the  Oklahoma Tax

Commission. I,  Dan Meador,  attest herewith  that all  three  of

these documents  are true  and correct  copies of originals - the

Agreement on Coordination of Tax Administration is certified by a

Ms.  Stewart,   an  assistant   secretary  of  the  Oklahoma  Tax

Commission.

     Plaintiffs herewith  adopt all  averments pertaining  to law

and fact set forth in the May 17, 1997, letter from Dan Meador to

Chairman Anderson, and hereby incorporate these matters into this

pleading.

     Plaintiffs allege  and believe the Agreement on Coordination

of Tax  Administration was  executed without  authorization under

State of  Oklahoma law  and without  authorization of laws of the

United States  as both authorize the Secretary of the Treasury to

enter such  agreements, not the Commissioner of Internal Revenue,

and there  is no  authority for  the Secretary of the Treasury to

delegate this  authority to  the Commissioner in the geographical

United States.  Further, statutes in Title 5 of the United States

Code make it perfectly clear that these agreements, when properly

executed, apply only to Federal officers and employees liable for

tax prescribed  in Subtitles  A & C of the Internal Revenue Code,

with   Treasury    Department   (General    Accounting    Office)

administration and enforcement authority being limited to Federal

agencies, as  defined at  5 U.S.C.   5517  & 5520,  there is no

grant of  Federal authority  to administer  state qualified taxes

beyond Federal  jurisdiction and  as such  taxes might  apply  to

people other than Federal employees.


         Dan Leslie, Meador, et al. v. Stephen C. Lewis:
                          Page 2 of 7


     Plaintiffs reiterate  that the  Internal Revenue  Service is

not an agency of the United States Department of the Treasury (31

U.S.C.   301-310), but  as successor  of the Bureau of Internal

Revenue, is  an agency  of the Department of the Treasury, Puerto

Rico, with  authority only in United States off-shore territories

(Puerto Rico,  Guam & American Samoa; see Internal Revenue Code 

7701(a)(12)(B)), and  that the  Commissioner of Internal Revenue,

originally in  the Treasury  Department when  created via  Act of

1862, is  now an office in the Department of the Treasury (I.R.C.

 7802), but not the United States Department of the Treasury (31

U.S.C.   301-310), who  has authority  only  in  United  States

maritime and  territorial jurisdiction (T.D.O. No. 150-42 (1953),

as amended  by T.D.O.  No. 150-01  (1986)),  under  authority  of

Executive  Order   No.  10289  (see  26  CFR,  Part  301.7621-1).

Plaintiffs allege  that this Order is not applicable to the Union

of several States party to the Constitution of the United States,

nor does  it convey  authority relating  to I.R.C. Subtitle A & C

taxing authority.

     Rather, when  and if  the Secretary  of the  Treasury enters

agreements to  collect qualified  state, city,  or county tax for

Federal States  subject to  Congress Article IV  3.2 legislative

jurisdiction (District  of  Columbia),  the  agreements  must  be

executed under  authority of  the present  E.O. No.  11997, which

clearly specifies  administration and  enforcement on the Federal

side without  suggestion of  extending United  States  Government

authority to  people other than those who are otherwise obligated

to Subtitle A & C taxes.


         Dan Leslie, Meador, et al. v. Stephen C. Lewis:
                          Page 3 of 7


     Further, the Agreement on Coordination of Tax Administration

and attending regulations in 26 CFR, Part 301 in particular would

appear to  impose Subtitle F collection and enforcement authority

when in  fact Subtitle  F of  the Internal  Revenue Code  is  not

effective as  law until  Title 26  of the  United States  Code is

enacted  as  positive  law,  which  it  hasn't  been  (I.R.C.  

7851(a)(6)(A) &  7806(a)). Therefore,  matters at  hand have been

effected and  prosecuted  under  completely  bogus  authority  as

Congress has  not enacted Title 26 of the United States Code into

positive law,  and the  Legislature of  the State of Oklahoma has

not enacted  Subtitle F  of the Internal Revenue Code as positive

law in the State of Oklahoma.

     Plaintiffs also  allege that  the Article  IV United  States

District Court  for the  Northern  District  of  Oklahoma  cannot

unilaterally expand  Federal jurisdiction  within  the  State  of

Oklahoma  or   any  of  the  other  Union  states  party  to  the

Constitution without securing an amendment to the Constitution of

the  United   States  which   expands  jurisdiction  beyond  that

prescribed at  18 U.S.C.  7(3), where jurisdiction is secured in

compliance with  40 U.S.C.   255 and corresponding State cession

laws (80  O.S.   1, 2 & 3), nor can the Federal Law Enforcement

Community exercise  general police  powers in the sovereign State

of Oklahoma.

     Further, Plaintiffs  allege  that  statutory  authority  for

enforcement of  agreements such as the O.T.C.-C.I.R. Agreement on

Coordination of  Tax Administration,  when properly  executed, is

vested in  the Solicitor  of the  Treasury, now designated as the

Attorney General,  and that such execution must be carried out in


         Dan Leslie, Meador, et al. v. Stephen C. Lewis:
                          Page 4 of 7


conjunction with  the General  Accounting Office,  not the United

States Department  of the  Treasury, an executive department, the

Department of  the Treasury, Puerto Rico, or the Internal Revenue

Service, a/k/a Bureau of Internal Revenue, Puerto Rico.

     Plaintiffs herewith  adopt and  bring  forward  all  matters

presented in  their  original  Application  for  Writ  of  Habeas

Corpus.

     Plaintiffs respectfully  request that  judicial officers  of

the Tenth  Circuit Court of Appeals issue a Writ of Habeas Corpus

to the  United States  Attorney  for  the  Northern  District  of

Oklahoma demanding  that he  produce authority to bring causes on

the part  of the  Internal Revenue  Service,  an  agency  of  the

Department of  the Treasury,  Puerto Rico,  and show  any offense

which was  committed in  United  States  maritime  and  off-shore

territorial jurisdiction  which  might  be  subject  to  Internal

Revenue Service  authority and  legitimate sphere of operation as

an agency  delegated authority on behalf of the "United States of

America", the "Central Authority", or the "Competent Authority".

Plaintiffs hereby certify by our respective signatures that all

matters of  law and  fact set forth herein are to the best of our

current knowledge, understanding and belief accurate and true, so

help us God.
