Vague rumor has intimated to us
that the strictures laid by this pa
per upon tlw method-of doing busi-.
ness that was followed by the dei
funct banking firm of Hamilton,
Job & Co., were not fully appreci
ated by the gentlemen and some of
their closest friends, and that it
would "be just a.s welU" etc,, not
to reiterate them, as it would only
embarass and hinder the settling of
the bank's business and thus delay
the depositors from realizing on
their almost worthless ' accounts.
While we would be the last person
in the world to knowingly hinder
the defrauded depositors from se
curing the miserable per cent, of
their deposits which will finally be
doled out to them, still, for nil that
the l.KAniCR is stoutly in favor of
calling a spade a spade without fear
or favor, and can see no reason
whv an action of a shadv character
should be condemned when com
mi t ted by one person, and con
doned when committed by another

er's money and speculates with it,
loses it and is detected is sent to
the penitentiary. The banker who
takes the depositors' money and
speculates with it outside of every
legitmate bound of banking busi
ness and loses it nil is pitied and
Condoned. It is wrong. The bank
er ought to go as promptly to prison
as the other man who speculated
with money not his own; and if
there is no law on the statute book
to reach the banker, one should be
placed there as soon as possible.
Eram the appearances made by the
report of the assignee of the defunct
Corvallis bank it would take a great
stretch ol imagination to call some
of their transactions legitimate.
What their capital stock was is un
known to the general public, but it
is safe to assert that it does not
equal by many dollars the amount
of overdrafts honored by thti bank.
A goodly part of these overdrafts,
the whole of which are $565.75,
were made by the saw mill compa
ny of which Zephiu Job was at the
head. Out of a total of $04,608.83
in outstanding notes, there arc
about $38,000 of those connidered
as worthless. We venture to assert j
that this amount alone exceeds the
capital stock the bank had when
doing business. Without any per
sonal feeling in the matter, we
would like to see the next grand ju
ry of Jienton county sift the whole
matter thoroughly, and if the fail
ure has been legitimate then the
members of the (ailing firm should
receive the sympathy to which they
are entitled; but should something
worse than mismanagement appear
they should be as promptly sent to

In the circuit court of Linn county
Saturday the case of the injunction
suit of I). C. Sherman, of Salem, vs
A. J. Bellows and other trustees of
the Soldiers' Home, restraining the
state from locating the home at
Rosehufg, came up before Judge
Burnett. The case was submitted
without argument. A demurrer
was overrule I and a permanent in
junction granted. The case will at
once be taken to the supreme court.
This decision, if sustained by the
supreme court, will be sweeping in
its character, .'is it would involve
the legality of the location of any
other state institution at any other
place than the state capital. The
wishes of the people, as shown here
tofore in the location of various
state institutions at several towns
liesides Salem, seems to be that all
such state institutions should not
be at the capital, and if this is tol
the construction of the constitution
upon this point a constitutional
convention will doubtless be called
soon to remedy it.

A gentleman by the name of Ray,
of Sauvle's Island, a short distance
below Portland, makes overtures
toward Toledo, looking toward the
removal of his creamery and dairy
plant to this place, together with
about 100 head of milch cows.
The gentleman wishes the people
to subscribe enough stock to buy
half interest or ruore in his property.
In talking with some of our best
men we do not find them very favo
ably impressed with the idea.
Should we have to subscribe half of
the stock it is thought that it would
pay to subscribe the other half also
and own the entire business, and
get a new plant at the same time.
Col. R. A. Miller, of Jackson
ville, has been appointed register
of the Oregon City land office vice
J. T. Apperson. This change will
be an excellent one for the inter

to old age, we must say that it
would be difficult to find another
old barnacle like Col. Apperson in
the state. He has done more to
hinder and harass claimants in his
district than all the other registers
in the state put together, ten times
over. He will be succeeded by a
scholar and a man of understand
