MASTERS IN CHANCERY.

Masters in chancery, in this state are appointed by the president judges of the circuit courts, and hola their appointments until removed by the courts. After taking an oath faithfully to discharge the duties of master in chancery, they have power and authority to take the attestation to all bills and answers in chancery to which an oath or affirmation is necessary, to take depositions, administer oaths to witnesses, to strike the balance of any accounts which may be in controversy, to examine into any alleged impertinence or scandal in a bill or answer, and into the sufficiency of an answer or examination, to amine bills of cost, and such other matters as may be referred to them by the court, and to certify to the court in writing the manner in which they have executed such orders.

So varied and multiplied are the subjects which may be referred to a master, and on which he may be required to report his opinion to the court, that it would be almost impossible to enumerate them; and in all the different subjects of reference, scarce any three cases are so similar as to be reducible to fixed form. For this reason, and because forms are unimportant to a man who is qualified to execute the duties of master in chancery, none are offered.

RECORDERS.

There is in each county a recorder, who is elected, for the term of seven years, by the qualified voters of the county, and keeps his office at the seat of justice. The recorder is required, before he enters on the duties of his office, to give bond to the state of Indiana, in the sum of two thousand dollars, with security to be approved by the associate judges of the proper county, conditioned for the faithful discharge of his duties; which bond is filed in the office of the secretary of state for the benefit of all persons concerned.

It is the duty of the recorder, to provide large books, well bound and covered, and therein to record, in a fair and legible hand, all deeds and other instruments of wri. ting brought to bim for that purpose, in regular succession according to the time they are brought into the office, and to enter in a book, to be kept for that purpose, every deed in writing brought into his office for record, noting the names of the parties, the date of the deed, the day of bringing it to the office for record, and the place where the lands lie; and also to make and prefix, or annex to each book of records, a complete index of all deeds and other instruments recorded therein, containing the names of both parties to the deed in alphabetical order.

Recorder's bond.

Know all men by these presents, that we, James Dodge and David Frame, of Marion county and state of Indi. ana, are held and firmly bound unto the state of Indiana, in the sum of two thousand dollars, for the payment of which, well and truly to be made and done, we bird ourselves, our heirs, executors, and administrators, jointly

and severally, firmly by these presents, sealed with our seals, and dated this 1th day of August, A. D. 1832.

The condition of the above obligation is such, that if the above bound James Dodge will truly and faithfully discharge the duties of recorder of the county of Marion, and will safely keep and preserve the records and other writings belonging to his said office, and will, at the expiration of his term of service, deliver the same over, whole, in good order, and undefaced, to his successor in office, then the above obligation is to be void and of none effect, otherwise to be and remain in full force and virtue in law.
