I'etek Paqv.-.t, Receiver.
Seventy-six men, says the Al
bany lk-rald, acting for themelves
individuallv, as the assignees of
forty more of their fellows, each
and all of whom are, or have been
clerks, agents, servants or em
ployes of the Oregon Pacific Rail
road company and the Willamette
Valley and Coast Railroad Com
pany have filed a plea in interven
tion, iu the circuit court of Denton
conuty, through their attorneys,
Messrs. D'Arcy tt Dingham, of
Salem. It was filed in the now
famous suit of The Farmers' Loan
& Trust Company, trustee, vs. the
corporations before named, and will
serve as a wedge with which to
effect an opening for the equitable
standing of these c'.aluis Unit have
been so persistantly ignored in all
the previous litigation and will, in
fact, bring these men and their
claims squarely "into court" where
they must be legally and honestly
disposed of. The aggregate amount
of these just and Ion,; overdue
$70,000 and to say that they will
be pushed to the very last limit of
their validity is superfluous.
In the complaint tiled by these
men it is alleged that the Farmers'
Loan & Trust Company when they
sued for foreclosure against the
railroad last October, claimed a
mortgage indebtedness against the
defendant companies of $15,000,000,
that they asked for; and were al
lowed, a receiver of the entire fran
chise, property, premises, and
purtenances, of every nature find
sort whatsoever of ald defendant
railroad companies and each of
them, including all the property
and premises, mentioned and con
veyed in said mortgage, or deed of
trust to plaintiff, together, with all
money and credits on hand and the
earnings of the same that such re
ceiver or receivers may be granted,
by this court, such powers as may
be deemed necessary and proper."
The complainants now make the
pertiment allegations that the
Farmers' Loan & Trust Company
as trustee, and as the greatest credi
tor in interest, in the whole matter,
has never in any manner assisted
the court to properly administer the
affairs of these wrecked companies
but has contented itself with stand
ing id'y by and witnessing several
inadequate sales of these properties,
which the Trust company's own
expert has reported to be worth
actually $3,500,000; that the said
properties, unless bid on at the
coming sale by the Farmers' Loan
& Trust company,' will not sell for
enough to pay court expenses; that
said Trust company has never
heretefore been a bidder even in
behalf of its own Immense claim, at
any of tjie several sales which have
transpired; ami in the face of these
charges, these employes pray for
an order of the Court, requiring
and compelling this big creditor
trust company to pay Into court the
several amounts claimed by the
hundred and odd claimants bring
ing this suit, together with interest
at 8 per cent, thereon, until the
same shall have been paid.
Tlie cft'-e is one that will attract
broad interest, as a new feature in
the multiplicity of features already
established to the history of these
fine projierties np to date, and it
has the cctiliur merit of being an
element on which popular sympathy
will focus itself, whether it has a
suctesi-ful issue or not.'
There is never any thing un
certain about Van Clf've- And the
Post. The buzzard and the vulture
never are keener to s-enl carrion
than Van and his Post are to scent
boodle. And it don't take but
mighty little boodle to furnish the
scent for them either. It is one
comfort to be able to always tknow
where to find a man or paper.
If that present owner map busl
ness had lcn a honest deal, the
court and lontntctors would have
been open ami above hoard In the
mauer. it wouii navt gone on
record in the journal as the law
demands and they would have
sneaked around about it 111" lot
of sheep killing dugs.
.The Job Bank anil the County
It will be remembered that Ben
ton county brought suit some time
ago against J. R. Bryson, as assign
ee of Hamilton, Job & Co. to re
cover the amount of money the
county had on deposit in that in
stitution at the time of the failure,
alleging that such money was a
trust fund and must be returned as
such. The Corvallis Times in
peaking of the case says:
''In the case of Denton county
against J. R. Bryson as assignee of
Hamitou, Job & Co., the assignee,
has filed his answer and admits
that there was a balance in favor of
Denton county of $11,057.86 when
the bank sniended. but denies any
any knowledge as to whether any
part of that money is in his hands
as the assignee. And also denies
that the money placed there was a
special deposit or bailment of said
money, ami that it was not intend
ed that the identical moneys depos
ited should be returned, but that
111 nmi irirn imilnr tn nil rmtioml
deposits; that the same was mingled
with the other mencys of the bank.
It further denies that Burnett,
county treasuier of Benton county,
is in any way entitled to preference
over the other genet al depositors
for any part of the money iu the
hands of the assignee.
The answer for"h separate defense
alleges in effect that more than two
years prior to May, 1893, the coun
tv treasurer opened an account
with said bank iu the name of M.
r. Duruett, county treasurer, sub
ject to check and that he drew
against the same by check, and
that the same was received, not as
special but os general deposits iu
the siild Lank and that the same
was not kept separate from, but
was mingled with the general funds
and not capnpie of identification.
It is also claimed as a .defense
that the county treasurer presented
a claim for this against the assignee
and also claims that Benton county
by its agents and officers hud knowl
edge of the custom of the county
treasurer of depositing the county
funds with the bank on general de
posit subject to check:
The answer claims that it would
be inequitable and a prejudice to
the other creditors to allow plaintiff
to receive payment in full of said
$11,057, or to make any claim oth
er than the money was a general
It is claimed that on May tst,
1893, Hamilton, Job & Co. had
cash on hand iu the sum of $31, 713,
and tha between May 1st, 1893,
and June 10th, Hamilton, Job &
Co. received numerous deposits and
that the same were not used for the
purpose of making loans but were
used in paying the indebtedness of
the bank; and alleges that the
claims so far presented aggregates
about the sum of $223,555.40, and
the assets aggregate in all about
the $130,000. The assignee claims
that he received from said Hamil
ton, Job & Co. $1 1,725.21, and no
more in money, and that there has
been $30,000 of claims and de
mands made upon the ground that
the sums included in the same were
trust funds and were entitled to be
paid in full, and that the claims
have not been adjudicated as to
whether they were trust funds or
not, and claim that it would be un
just to the other creditors."
The Albany Democrat, a patent
medicine advertisement daily that
indicts itself upon a few of the peo
ple of Albany calls the editor of
this paper a populist because it
stands up for the people against a
rottou swindle that one of his fat
friends which was imported over
here is helping to engineer through.
If standing up against such things
as tVe Job bank dwindle, the Hadlcy
railroad swindle, and the preseut
ownor map business makes an editor
a populist, then we plead guilty.
And we are not ashamed of it
