[POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT.] people of Kossuth county do not wish to extend, another term to me, I will willingly abide by their decision and forever feel thankful to them for the kindness and consideration they have already , so generously shown me', and only hope that my services and poor efforts at economy have met with their approval. I am now serving my second term as Clerk of the District Court, which office Is entirely different A STATEMENT TO KOSSUTH VOTERS I wish to announce that I am, and have been since the campaign first opened, a candidate for the office of the Clerk of the District Court. The March term of the District Court Is still open and it will be impossible for me to make a campaign and renew my acquaintance with the voters of Kossuth county without neglecting the duties of my office. I will, therefore, make my appeal to the voters through the columns of the newspapers, and I would ask the voters to watch this space each week until the June primaries are over. It is not because my '.'numerous friends" have "demanded" that I run, or that I am "literally pushed Into the race," but, (because 'I want .the office; as any man with a fam- ily'of five children-to support and educate, should want a job during •these trying and disastrous days. If it should come to pass that the good arate sets of books tor the State Department of Vital Statistics In the matters pertaining to birthsi deaths, marriages, and. divorces. He also issues and records permits for Sacramental wine and Intoxicants necessary for use In the hospitals, The Clerk is also a United States officer and Issues passports; he Is also connected with the Veterans' Bureau, but Is not allowed a fee of from ,ten to twenty dollars to make out or fill in a little blank piece of paper, asking for a pension, but must render this simple service free of charge. However, we make no claim of any "stand in" or "pull" with any United States Senator or other government officer, neither do we consider this "hocum" necessary. The records of all the closed banks are to be found In the Clerk's office and all the legal transactions carried on by the receivers. All transcripts of judgment from outside District Courts and local Justice Courts are recorded here. Criminal matters'entering District Court are docketed and handled separately as Criminal Court. Juvenile Court Is a branch of this office, also widows' pensions. The Clerk draws and empanels called upon to certify. I mention these matters only verify my former statement the Clerk of the District Court of* flee is different from other office* In,the Courthouse, and that a does not reach any 'degree of efft»- clency until he has served at teasfc one term. Any intelligent man can. fill the office. I am acquainted* either directly or indirectly, with all: of my opponents, and I'belleve, withi the same experience, any them are as capable or from that of any.other office In the Courthouse, Inasmuch as It requires from one to two years of service before a Clerk Is- sufficiently competent to perform the duties of that office efficiently and' with any degree of accuracy. There are many voters In Kossuth county who are unfamiliar with the duties of Clerk of the District Court unless they have been connected with some legal procedure. This office might be called a : "clearing house" for all matter pertaining to law, equity, criminal and probate matters, which of course, are handled by Attorneys and Abstractors, and enatiles them to judge fully the services rendered by the Clerk and to them I would refer the voters of Kossuth county as to the degree of service I have given while filling this office. I A Clerk of Court is also Judge of Probate in Iowa. This duty, In a great many states,, as in Minnesota, is an entirely separate office from that of the Clerk of the District Court 'and handled by a separate set of officers. 'He is also af'State the Grand and Petit Juries, registers their attendance and records their findings. , He Issues orders for their pay, and above all, often saves'the taxpayers many hundreds of dollars by staying over-time at his'!telephone notifying Jurors when they are 'not needed. ' The offices of Coroner and Sheriff make their reports to the Clerk. He Issues subpoenas for witnesses, keeps track of their time and pays them when the costs in the cases are collected. He collects and disburses between Fifty Thousand and Seventy Thousand Dollars each year, not Including land redemptions, writing approximately one thousand checks. He figures judgments, interest- and attorney's fees in District Court cases. The Clerk approves and cancels all bonds. This office 'has over one hundred legal forms to issue and make out. He also serves on the Insanity Commission and attends to all the legal procedure pertaining to that commission. The commitments to the various hospitals, and all papers pertaining to the same are directly a part o£ his duties. The Iowa Code provides nineteen different "assu- ances of processes" under the seal of the Court with which he must be familiar and thirteen different one of perhaps more capable than I am, to fill this* office. During my Incumbency as Clerk of Court I have at all times, dlU> gently tried to keep down the expenses of my office and make It payout without expense to the taxpayers. I would ask that voters wb<k are Interested secure a copy of the last Elnancial report (1931) front, the Kossuth County Auditor, artd they will find that my office collected $7759.92, of which $4145.35 represented "fees" paid to Kossutlt county. They will also discover that the office expense was only $3565.13, leaving $580.22 for the purchase oE books, or other office expenses. Besides this, we have collected $1482."5* in fines and forfeitures which goesr to the school fund. Credit for thla also goes to the County Attorney and Sheriff's .office. We have also* In trust fund the sum of ? 2131.67; a part of which will go to 'tha county. ', The expenses >ln this office havet been heavy, .'because of the great In,crease of work in all departments, especially in foreclosures and bank failures. One of the county seat newspapers, who checked our dockets is authority for the statement that our work in 1931. was over 40f a greater than in 1930 in equity an* law cases, yet my especially efficient deputy and I have handled this .increase of work without other, aa> slstance than <is customarily given, this office. Because of some wild statement* that have been broadcast over th« county for political purposes, in th* next issue of this paper I will maka a sworn statement as to the business transacted in my office during the period I have been in office a« compared with the business transacted during the same period of my 'Officer, recording and keeping sep-1 questions of law upon which he opponent,- J. A. Freeh. Respectfully dedicated to th» Voters of Kossuth county. CLARK OR.TON, Candidate for the Office o* tn* Clerk of the District Court, subject to the Will of the Voters of Kossuth county.
