These ate the figures, taken from
the quarterly teportsof the clerk and
published in this paper. Now deduct
the total expenses for these nino
months from tho total fees collected
for tho same period and wo have a bal
ance of 9321,85 as excess fees in his
hands on September .'list. Now deduct
from this last sum the 9300 in fees that
were drawn ns clerk of the bonrd for
these throo qunrters, or nine months,
and which under tho clrcumstnncos
when tho other fees were sufflclont to
pay tho current expenses of tho olllco
should not have been drawn, nnd you
will find Hint tho excess fees amount to
just $21 85 for nino months. The last
statement of the county clerk showed 11
balance in fees in his hands f $055 3.r),
a portion of which was carried over
from the year 1808. The annual stiito
ment made to the county board for
1808 shows thnt tho totnl of fees col
leeted for the year, including tho $400
fee for noting us clerk ot the county
bonrd, to bo $2813.50. The expendi
tures for the same year were salary of
clerk, 81,500.00; deputy clerk, $700.00,
and extra clerk hire, $280.00; making a
to-.al of $2,480. This latter amount de
ducted from the fees collected leave, a
balance ol $333.50 which was carried
over and together with the $321.85 ex
cess fees for the past three quarters
niiineft me sum imai 01 ine excess lees
in his hands on October 1st, 161)9, to bo
$055.35, ns his last statement, shows.
Now had tho present county clerk
did as his predecessors and accepted
this feo only when necessary, where
would this enormous sum liavo been
at present? Has the county made any
saving through tho operation, or is it
merely a transfer of funds for appear
unco snke, to swell tho receipts nnd
make the average person think won
ders had been accomplished? Ono
thing is cortain, and that is thatnc
cording to his own reports ho has
drawn tho feo regularly whether ho
needed it to meet expeutes or not. If
he bad done as otheis ditt the prob
abilities are that $000 of this sum
would have remained in the county
treasurer's hands without any transfer
to the clerk's fee book and then back to
tho treasurer as excess fees. From tho
annual report of 181)3 it is self evident
that at least once the fee was necessary
to moot the accrued expenses. There is
one thing, however that the quarterly
reports do show, and that Is that dur
ing thu twenty-one months last past
