[From Swea City Herald.] Clark Orton, clerk of the district court, was in Swea City Friday call- Ing on friends. He is serving his second term and is a candidate for reelection. Clark Is one of the most colorful figures ever in Kossuth county politics. Before his election four years ago his writings in both the local and state papers concern- Ing politics drew wide attention, and never failed to stir up comment. An attack on Tammany hall which was published exclusively In the. Herald while he was campaigning for office the first time was a bombshell in Kossuth politics. But since he was elected to office he has tamed clown. Chided .about it Friday he replied there were so many "reds and bolsheviks" these days that his voice would be drowned in the general din if he were to swing into action again. According to a prepared statement which he left with the Herald the work in the clerk of courts office had increased 46 per cent during 1931 over 1930. The office now has over 13,200 cases in law and equity on the com- I bination docket while neighboring agricultural counties have from | 7,000 to ' 11,000. That is because Kossuth is a double-sized county. During the three years Clerk Orton has been in office he has placed 1,180 cases in law and equity on his dockets besides handling 410 new estates and guardianships in probate"' cburt; arid, ' 234 cases in 1 criminal court. That Is . approximately, ten per cent of all the cases which have been handled in his office since the county was organized over 75 years ago. Sixteen closed banks are - now in the process of liquidation through his office. Each bank case is the equivalent in work to more than 20 cases in law and equity. During the 11 years, 1910 to 1920, inclusive, there were only eight farm foreclosures, amounting to $42,714, that 'were not 'redeemed in Kossuth county. In the single year of 1931 there were over $1,250,000 of unredeemed foreclosures In his offi'ce. He has handled this Increased business • without extra ''help other than • what wae customary In years, gone by, i , Concerning the cut in salaries of the court house officials he aays: "The 10 per cent cut .is agreeable to me as Ions as the money goes to the county poor fund and is not used to •buy snowplows and tractors and to hire extra help 'for the supervisors to pass the buck to. In addition to his 10 per cent -cut it Is said Clerk Orton delivered dally throughout the winter, free of charge, seven quarts of milk to four Algona families having 14 children. He said he had saved $T5 a month tmt'of his salary since had been in office, and with this money added to a small sum he had upon taking office he had. bought 20 acres of •ian'djind built a home a mile south of Algona in Creaco township. He adds: "I have only taken my family of five children to three picture shows in the last three years and until May 1 my car has not been out of the city limits of Algona in 18 months, not because I am so tight but because I am too darn H. N. KRUSE FOR s Mr Orton's belief that eal- arled men, especially salaried men who draw over $100 a month, are the best able to give. He said: "There are men. friends of mine W ho are considered Veil to do who own one or more farms and their homes in town who, are having a hard time to pay taxes and support Treasurer be no change for 'the for the common people dur- excepting ry comfort V the twinkling o* an eye labor begging to operate the machinery and one half of the gold SFSrKrM.
