Syllabus

A clerk of a district court is entitled to charge for entering orders approving marshals' accounts. United States v. Van Duzee, 140 U. S. 169, approved.

He is also entitled to charge for certifying copies of such orders to be forwarded to the department with the accounts, but not for the seals affixed to such copies unless such authentication is required by the Treasury Department.

He is also entitled to charge for copies of orders for marshals to pay supervisors of elections without regard to the necessity for such orders or the power of the court to make them.

He is also entitled to a fee for filing a marshal's account with vouchers attached, but not to a separate fee for filing each voucher.

He is also entitled to fees for recording, after the determination of a prosecution, all the proceedings relating to it, including the order of commitment.
