view of investigating his record, and
that of his predecessors, but on account of
illness of the deputy, and the urgent use
of the books by the Court, were unable
to proceed further, but would recom

grand jury le especially called to the
matter, and also recommend that civil
suits le entered against all ollicials and
ex-otlicials, or their bondsmen, for all
sums due and unaccounted for.
We recommend that if the insane
woman referred to by jail committee

PRORATE CLERK H OFFICE.
We, your committee appointed to ex
amine the books of the probate clerk
and ex-officio recorder of Grant county,
report as follows:
Owing to the limited time at our dis
losal we could only give the same super
ficial examination. We examined the
probate records, county commissioners'
record, warrant stubs and account books,
journal and ledger, license books, Iwiid
records and otlicial bond record. We
find the books neatly and properly kept,
and bills and receipts filed in order.
The Ixmd record of the 1889 issue,
through no fault' of the present county
clerk, is very incomplete and we recom
mend that the record lie filled out from
the bonds.
The late election cost the county
$1,395.70 for registration, judges and
clerks of election and bringing in of bal
lot Ihjxos.
The total amount of current expense
account allowed but unpaid since Octo
ber 13th, 18911, is $20,148.97.
Total amount of bonded indebtedness
$218,100.
Total debt $2:18,240.97.
The fire proof vault of this ollice
should be improved or enlarged.
We find that some of the liondsmcn of
county ollicials have left the county but
lielieve the remaining bondsmen are suf
ficient. Respectfully submitted,
