can it be said with truth that the
Advertiser is the mouthpiece ol this
administration," said Governor
Carter this morning as he glanced
over the editorial page of the paper
referred to. "If I am ever con

have but to produce a copy of the
Advertiser of today to prove the
The above remarks were the re

The Governor, referring again to
the morning paper, remarked that
many of the statements therein,
touching on the proposition of ask
ing Congress to ratify the County
law and on the Governor's atlitude
in the matter, were unwarranted.
Mr. Carter suggested that he might
have been approached on the sub
ject, for information,
faulty assertions were made.
The Governor appeared to be at
a loss as to what was the Advet
tiser's real attitude on the County
Speaking of the soundness of the
idea to get Congress to ratify the
County Act, the Governor said:
"But recently I realized that
this possibility of various parties
successfully contesting the validity
of certain sections of the County
Act was one of the most serious
affairs confronting the administra
tion. The Legislature has provided
for County government and, in do
ing so, cuts off the Territorial Gov
ernment nltopetber from exercisinir
ntiv nurlinrirv nlniio- linp loft for 1 erale balt-
the counties to travel.
Mr. l' M. Hatch, who was going
to Washington anyway, was asked
to bring the matter before Congress.
"If Congress will ratify the
County Act and leave it to the next
Legislature to amend we will have
found the simplest, quickest and
cheapest means of safeguarding the
Territory against such possibilities
as I have spoken of as following
the knocking out of the County
Act in the courts. It seems to me
that this is a matter demanding im
