New Receiver of Title Guarantee &
Trust Company Takes Places
Vacated by Hill.
At a meeting of the officers of the
defunct Title Guarantee & Trust Com
pany held yesterday afternoon, E. C.
Clears, the new receiver, became presi
dent of the four subsidiary companies.
When the bank failed and George H.
Hill, vice-president of the concern, was
appointed receiver, he became presl-'
dent of the subsidiary corporations, and
yesterday, when he stepped down and
out of the presidency of these companies,-
his official connections with the
Title Guarantee & Trust Company
ceased and now he is under a salary as
a clerk. The four principal companies
are the Commercial Trust Company,
Colonial Investment Company, the-Portland
Development Company, better
known as the Late Pence, and the Ore
The removal of Hill from official con
nection with the Title Guarantee &
Trust Company's affairs will occasion
no surprise, and Receiver Mears ex
plained yesterday this action was
brought about Just as quickly as the
matter could he reached. Hill, because
of his knowledge of the inside working
of the concern, has been retained In
the capacity of a clerk and will assist
Receiver Mears. He Is the only one of
the former officers of the bank that
has been retained. T. T.. Burkhart, for
merly the treasurer of the company,
severel his connection with the bank
on Saturday last. The meeting held
-yesterday afternoon was a brief one.
Receiver Mears was elected president
of the holding companies and he takes
one share of stork in each company,
so that he can be also one of the di
rectors. On share of stock was also
taken over by several of the clerks
employed by Receiver Mears, and they
will constitute the directors.
It is' expected that the work of the
experts placed in the bank by District
Attorney Manning and on request of
Attorney-General Crawford, will be
completed by Saturday. Considering
the methods used fcy the official!, of the
bank, the work of the experts has been
rapidly done. That they have found
the grossest kind of irregularities is
admitted by District Attorney Manning
and it is evident that things are found
to be in worse shape than was expected.
During the hearing before Judge
Wolverton when the creditors of the
bank were fighting to have Receiver
Hill removed. Attorney Joseph Simon
announcedffn open court that It was his
belief that the bank would be able to
pay dollar for. dollar. From later de
velopments It Is evident that Attorney
Simon had either been misinformed as
to the exact conditions existing in the
bank or that he had not gone into the
matter deeply, for the experts have
found nothing tliat would lead them to
hope that such a thing is at all possi
ble. When all of the facts are made
public about the Title Guarantee &
Trust Company, It will undoubtedly be
found that the wreck was about as
complete as it could have been made
had the officials planned Its destruc
Receiver Mears saj's he Is - not yet
In a position to know how much the
creditors will get from the bank. He
will wait until the experts are through,
then when thefr reports are- In his
hands and he has checked them up, he
will be better able to give some Idea
as to the exact condition of affairs. He
has installed a rigid system of economy
and he says he will save to the depos
itors and creditors every dollaV possi
ble. He will make a monthly report to
Judge Wolverton and will make no
move without first consulting him.
