Prominent Among County Officers
Are H. H. Berg of Towner and
Adolph Wacker of Washburn.
The Registers of Deeds Associa

annual session in the cayital city
Wednesday afternoon at the court
house and there was a large number
of the officers present from all parts
of the state.
The gathering devoted nearly all
of its time to the discussion of mat
ters of legislation which will be more
fully talked over at the meeting this
morning. It is expected that a num
ber of bills will be prepared for sub
mir'-ion to the legislative assembly.
One of the principal matters up fc
consideration was that of the adjust
ment of fees.
Prominent among those in attend
ance were H. H. Berg of Towner,
president of the association, and
Adolph Wacker of Washburn who Is
secretary and treasurer of the or
ganization. Mr. Wacker, it will be
remembered, is the young man against
whom the fight was directed two
years ago when McLean county was
divided in an effort to oust him from
office. However, he won his case,
and to show their apprecation of his
good work, the voters re-elected him
to office at the recent general elec
