Term of Charles II. McWhorter
Clerk or thu Orphans Court and Regis
ter in Chancery Kxpires Muy 27th—Ap
plicants for the 8uc<-e»»ion.
The term of Charles H. McWhorter
clerk of the orphans court and register in
chancery, expires May 27th. The uppli
for the succession are Speaker of the
Senate John P. Donnhoe, ex-Scnator Colin
Ferguson of Appoquinimink hundred,
George W. Spicer of Marshallton and
Register McWhorter.
As the latter w
appointed during the
administration of Governor Biggs, when
"appointments were the rare exception,
a certainly not the rule, some surpriso
naturally expressed when Register
McWhorter entered the lists for a second
term. He gives the following reasons for
his action :
When he took charge of tlie offleo in
May. 1887, its business records, through
the dissipation of one of his predecessors
and the financial shortage of another,
a wreck. All known of its financial
that the bank-book showed a
balance in bank, but there w
to show to whom
what estates this
money should be credited. No charge
made of money paid out by order of the
court, except the mere entry on tho court
records, und as long as there was a balanco
in bank.no defalcation could be discovered.
Mr. McWhorter, being confronted with
a bank balance insufficient to meet the
orders allowed by the court, made a thor
ough examination, by direction of ('han
ceiior fcjttiilsbury, of tho records for 40
years past. He took each individual case,
found the money puid into court and paid
out on account of each, nnd opened a
ledger account in each instance, mean
while straightening out the record books,
of which
that the
any of the leaves.
This work of ronovating the important
records of the court occupied from J
15th, 1887, to March 28th, following. A
conimitteo of lawyers appointed to
amine this work and report upon its et
■licieney, received $500 for their
Mr. McWhorter has received nothing for
his. In fuel, ho is out of pocket, having
$500 during this time for tho
of clerks to keep up his office work,
which he was compelled to almost c
pletcly abandon in order to straighten out
the records. But. ho put the office records
in such shape that now a glance will show
the balance in bank, and to wliut estate it
till belongs.
Mr. McWhorter says that for three and
-half years of his term the ofii
far from profitable ono, but he secured
legislation which threw more business into
tho orphans court, and thereby increased
tho fee compensation of the clerk. Ashe
done this work, and made such a
change for tho bettor, ho feels that he is
fairly entitled to another term, a feeling
that is heartily endorsed by his many
friends. On his recommendations are the
names of 63 members of the New Castle
county bar, besides the signatures of pn
incut citizens, in all branches of business.
Mr. McWhorter feels that under the cir
cumstances he is justified in asking for
another term.
