Excerpt from Proceedings in the Senate, Vol. 2: On the Investigation of the Charges Preferred Against Horace G. Prindle, County Judge and Surrogate of Chenango County; In Pursuance of a Message From His Excellency, the Governor, Transmitting the Charges and Recommending His Removal

Now, I wish to call attention to a further part of that Opinion to show the close construction which the judge gives to the statute: In the first place, he says, I will inquire what is forbidden by the statute.

N o judge or other officer 'to whom any fees or compensation shall be allowed by law for any service, shall take or receive any other or greater fee or reward for such service but such as is or shall be allowed by the laws of this State (2 R. S. 650, This prohibits the officer from taking a greater fee or reward for some service rendered by him than the law allows for such service, and it only extends to cases where a fee or compensation is allowed by law for that particular service. It has nothing to do with any service not coming within the fee bill; as where an attorney charges his client for a journey, or for drawing or copying papers for which no fee or compensation has been specially provided by law. For cer tain services the Legislature has given to officers a specified fee or reward, and has forbidden them to take more. But where no fee has been prescribed by law the Legislature has not undertaken to say how much or how little shall be charged for any service which may be rendered. That is left to be settled by the principles of the common law.
