The affair of the now defunct Pen
dleton academy may be aettled out o'
court and the various creditors In this
city may receive 50 cents on the dollar
for their various claims, which amount
in the aggregate to something like
$2,500 in the city of Pendleton, says
the Live Wire. ,
- Such in substance was the gist of
the recommendations 'by the Com
mercial club last night to the board of
trustees of the Institution, after a
statement had been made by Dr. C. J.
Smith, one of the trustees, that the
Presbyterian board, under whose con
trol the Institution was conducted.
were willing to assume such an obli
gation, provided that a deed for the
property be given by the present trus
tees and the matter be settled without
a foreclosure suit in the circuit court
Statements were made that the
Presbyterian board, which is the na
tional organization of that denomina
tion, holds mortgages on the present
property to the extent of $14,000. For
several years the Institution was con
ducted at a loss and the board is not
willing to advance further funs tr
conduct It.' Th Ptndleton academy
was first statted here some 25 ' years
igo and at various times the city of
Pendleton has donated funds for its
-onduct. until an amount equal to
i0,000 una ubkm contributed In T?.T-
Should the board be willing to ac
" pt the overtures that will be made
by the local board trustees, It is
thought that Pendleton creditors will
receive the amount mentioned above
on all their claims, but Bhould it be
necessary to take the settlement into
court and a foreclosure of the mort
gage allowed, their claims would be
settled for much less. The move is
made simply to settle tht debts and
save Pendleton creditors as much as
possible out of the wreck.
