W.C. Morgan, County Judge, made a statement to the false reports circulating regarding the signing of the lease of part of the courthouse yard for a filling station. “This is not true. I signed the orders of the Fiscal Court for that meeting the same as always, but did not sign the lease.” He went on to say it is the duty of the County Judge to sign the orders as passed by the Court whether he likes them or not but the law is mandatory and says the County Judge shall sign the orders as passed and should he refuse to affix his name to the record, he would be compelled to do so by mandamus proceedings and stand a first class chance of losing the office he holds.
