The sale of the O. V. last Friday for the pitiful sura of $200,000 have blighted the men's hopes of secur ing their back pay. It is now understood than the claims in order preferred will stand soraethiug like this: First the court expciLses of sale; second, the due and delin quent taxes against the road; third, the $40,000 in receiver's certificates issued by Receiver Hadley last spring to pay the pretended 46 per cent, of back pay; and fourth, the time, The Corvallis next Tuesday, when the court will be asked to confirm the sale. The great question now is, is whether the court will so confirm the sale, ond upon this jiolut there are many opinions, The men, as is stated elsewhere are making strong efforts to pre vent a confirmation and protest upon protest from other interest-! ed parties are being poured in upon Judge Fulerton to the same end, Should the court confirm tee sal the men are defrauded out of their money and the tnost( outrageous steal of the times has been perpetrated to a finish. The developments of next Tuesday at Corvallis arc anxiously awaited, 1 . , Representative Bowers of Cal ifornia, lias Introduced to bill of an 1 mportant nature. It is to estab.. ish a system of postal savings banks in the United States, every first, second and third-class office to lie a receiving point for depositors of not less than $$ or more than $300 on the same day, on which funds the government is to guarantee interest at three per cent, per annum. At the request of the depositor bonds ' will be Issued to lilru by the Secre tary of the treasury in the denomi nation of $100, to run twenty years at four per cent. Interest. Mr, Howers said that his idea was two-fold: First, to provide means by which the people could put their savings in a place where its security would be absolutely i certain; second, to open a way for) the raising of funds for the govern- j nient without resorting to methods! of taxation which would be felt by j the people. i The small savings of the people , had always, he said, been a means) of acqui lug wealth by sharp per- i ; f : I sons ami corporations ui vuuuus kinds. For instance, a savings batik was now an adjunct of nearly all commercial banks, and the former was used as a dumping ground for all the worthless se curities of the latter, so that in some cases of failure the depositors in commercial banks had received four times as much of their de posits as had the depositors in sav- ings Institutions that were part and : parcel of them and had failed at the same time they did. Mr. Bowers said he did not ex pect the bill to pass at this session, though he would make a strong fight tor it. The Wall-street in terests would antagonize it, and all . banking interests would join them. ! 1 i ' i 1 . 'I- V si i A' u A! ' I : J CrraUU, Ortfoa.
