The la-t wish andcherif-iied intent ona
of Honest John Myers, the Resident and
manager of the Commercial and Savinifs
Hank, of the Last Side, whoso doors
weie closed during the panic of the lurd
Iiriii-H, thai every depositor ami h!1 debts
of tlie institution should he paid in time
in full, have now been fully carried out
by J. K. Hedges, of Oregon City, admin-
islratorofthee-taieof Mr. Myers. The
outcome is hichly creditable to the rnsn -
sgement and fidelity with which Mr.
Iledi'cs carried forward the plans of Mr.
.Myers in paying depositors and creditors.
At the time trie Commercial and .Sav
ings liiink closed, says the Oregoman,
its assets would have brought little or
nothing had they been sold out at auc
tion as proposed. At a meeting of the
depositors held in the office of the bank
Mr. Myers mnle a proposition 'o take
Ihe assets, also to throw his own per
sonal fortune into the scale, and pay oir
tiie deposits, amounting t') something
over J.S.OOO, and the liabilities, provided
that time be given to realize on the prop
erty. There was a long discussion over
the proposition. Some were opposed to
accepting it and were in favor of "wiping
the whole thing up" at once.
J. S. FVs, and a few of the conserva -
live depositors, nrged that the proposi
tion he accepted. This was finally agreed
to and a paper was draw n up w hich was
signed by John Myers and the depositors.
Mr. Myers then turned his personal for
tune in with the BBsets, and at the
time of his death was making progress
in liquidation. Mr. Hedges, his admin
istrator, took up the work, and a few
days ago wag around on the East Side
pay ing off w hat was left unpaid on the
deposits, the main portion of which had
already been paid. The only loss that
is sustained, if it can be called a loss, is
the interest on the money.
This is the only batik that failed com
pletely in Portland that has paid out
dollar for dollar. J S Foss. has the or
iginal document signed bv John Myers
and the depositors at tlie time' the 'bank
clofed. He cxpres-es great satisfaction
over the final outcome. He fays that
the finances have been so managed tnat
the heirs will receive something. .
