The work of the County Actl
Commission has been completed
and the bill providing for counties
and their government, which is a
compromise measure of the former
printed measures, was presented to
Governor Carter on last Wednes
day for his approval and submis
sion to the legislature. Chairman
Cooper, Commissibncrs Crabbc,
Fernandez and Stewart voted for
the compromise bill, hut Commis
sioner Watson went on tecord as
objecting to the restriction placed
on the counties from levying taxes,
which he regarded as the fund
amental prittciple of county gov
The compromise bill is a com
bination of the two printed bills
known as the Cooper-Watson and
McCants Stewatt bills. These two
measures have been boiled down
and the different plans harmonized
into one concrete measure. In
addition to the act creating coun
ties, a supplementary bill is offered
providing for the election of the
Board of Supervisors. A Hoard of
Supervisors is created as a part of
the county government scheme,
but as some persons claim the elec
tion of the Supervisors is unconsti
tutional and contrary to the Organic
Act, the method of selection is left
to a supplementary bill to be en
acted as a law. The Supreme Court
can then pass upon the question,
without invalidating the entire
