So .ays Governor Carter in rela
tion to the Territory's present finan

Mr. Carter is now concentrating
every effort to help along the work
of the Legislature at special session
to commence April 6. And the
Governor has called upon all de
partments of the Government to co
operate in paving the way of the
law-makers, that the work of the
latter may be laid before them in a
form that will insure quick and
effective action; action which will
result in a practical, reasonable,
business-like solution of the diffi
culties now confronting the Ha
Following up the idea of putting
upon litigants more ol the costs of
litigation, reported exclusively in
yesterday's Bulletin, the Governor
states that it is doubtful whether,
under our present system, the
method in vogue does not operate
more to the benefit of rich corpora
tions than to the benefit of the poor
Mr. Carter believes there is con
siderable to be said on either side of
the question, but there appears to
be great opportunity for improve
ment from a financial standpoint
when it is considered that corpora
tions can fight out protracted legal
battles, calling for juries and other
court running expenses, at a cost,
sometimes, infinitely small in com
parison with the interests involved;
and does not the fact that court
costs are comparatively light tend
to encourage litigation, consuming
the time of the courts, where it
might otherwise be avoided.
"Placing upon litigants the costs
of litigation," says the Governor,
"would do away with many trivial
matters which now take up the
time of the courts. And the Ter
ritory has to stand the bulk of the
burdcu of all this.
"Can we afford it all? How does
the system work when carefully ex
amined? "These are questions for the peo
ple to seriously consider.
"If we want to proceed on this
benificent theory are we ready to
stand increased taxation to meet
the expenses of the Government?
It is such a system as the present
that results in a congestion in the
courts. Perhaps the attorneys
might not favor an increase of finan
cial responsibility on litigants, but
j that is not the question. We have
got to come within our revenue or
increase or revenue."
The above is one of the questions
which will be brought before the
representatives of the people in spe

The out-of-town merchant owed
the Kansas City house $200 for
goods purchased the month prev
ious, says the Kansas City Star.
The bill was due and a letter was
written requesting payment. A
letter came back saying that the
writer was somewhat short of cash
and requesting an extension of
ninety days on the bill. The Kansas
City merchant wrote another letter
saying that he must insist on the
payment of his bill and suggested
that if the customer was "hard up"
the local bank would undoubtedly
accommodate him with a loan of
$200, so that the bill might be paid.
In Seventy-two hours the Kansas
City man received a reply, which
he is carrying around and showing
to his friends as a certificate of the
nerviest business proposition ever
issued in Missouri. The letter

was told that it would be necessary
to get another signature on the note
