Statutory duties, imposed upon the County Commissioners to manage the county finances and allow no claim against the county not properly chargeable thereto, remain unaffected by duties of Clerk appointed by said County Commissioners and specified by subsequent statute, same being clerical duties. Larmore et. al. v. State, 180 Md. 347, 24 A, 2D 284 (1942).
County Commissioners, by acceptance of their offices, accept statutory duty to ver indebtedness and expend the money of the county, and such duties could not be delegated to Clerk appointed by them under statutory law. Larmore et. al. v. State, 180 Md. 347, 24A. 2d 284 (1942).
Where County Commissioners are derelict in their duties, which enabled their Clerk to steal the county's funds, evidence that they were following a system used by prior Boards and that they neither received any of the stolen funds nor had any knowledge of the Clerk's dishonesty or any reason to suspect same, is irrelevant and was properly excluded.
