The County Court

(-as transcribed from pages 271 - 272 )

Everything in municipal affairs has its beginning and the establishment of the county government by law brought with it the inauguration of the county or probate court; naturally, the duties of the judge were very light for a number of years, and the pay small, but with the lapse of years the work has grown to  such an extent as to occupy nearly the whole time of the judge.  During the last fifty-six years the court has had nine judges, as follows:  Starting with William Pitt Bartlett, who occupied the office from 1858 to 1861, his successors have been Ira Mead, 1862; John W. Stillman, 1863-65; H. W. Barnes, 1866-68; George C. Teall, 1869-73; Arthus C. Ellis, 1874-80; George C. Teall, 1881-86; A. C. Larson assumed the duties of the office in 1887 and was succeeded by Martin B. Hubbard, who took charge in 1897.  He remained one term of four years and was succeeded by the present encumbent, George L. Blum, who was first elected in 1901.
