Fate of German - American
' Concern! May Be Decided at
Meeting of Bankers to Be
: Held This Afternoon.
COIN FORTHCOMING IF
Plenty of Time Will Be Granted
by Associated Banks to
Wind Up Affairs.
There la a strong probability that the
Portland Clearing House association and
the German-American bank will come
to terms in the matter of the $300,000
loan at a meeting of the directors of the
clearing, house banks, which has been
called for 3:30 o'clock this afternoon.
While negotiations between the Ger
man-American bank's representatives
and tha Clearing Houae association have
been aomewhat atralned alnca the direc
tors or the clearing house made it a
condition precedent to the request for a
$300,000 loan that the German-Ameri
can liquidate; but at no time have the
conditions laid down by the clearing
houae been absolutely rejected, although
the breaking point haa been wellnlgh
reached at several conferences between
representatives of the two Interests.
Seelsloa Beached Today.
W. A. MacRae, manager of the Bank
of California and president of the Clear
ing House association, said this morning
that K -had 'not authorized any atate
mn t ' . to i the ; effect that negotiations
were prr so rar aa tna loan is concerned
"The answer 'of the German-Americairil,"'13;'""0 ,M the east coort or
bank .to the proposition has not been
considered by the clearing' house," said
Mr.-MacRaer "but will be taken up this
afternoon and probably disposed of.
However, the German-American bank
is not required to settle vlth the de-
posltors of the Oregon Trust for aeveral
days yet, and there is plenty of time to
mrk t Mtinfantorv .mnnment with
the clearing house, no matter what' may
be done at this afternoon's meeting.
Bank Xnst Be Closed. .
As ' expressed by a director,' of the
clearing houae,- this morning, the clear-
mg no.e dshm ...n ru, lu ,
sufficient funds for wiping ou the af-
faira of the defunct Oregon Truat ft
Savings bank, but demand as condition
precedent, that the German-American
bank ehall notify the public that It will
proceed to liquidate its affairs.
The clearing house banks are not dis
posed to limit unduly the time in which
the German-American shall quit busi
ness. In fact, they want the German-
American to have all the time necessary
to realize the utmost out of Its securi
ties, but the association feela that It is
best for 11 concerned that every trace
6f the Oregon Trust ft Savings bank
ahould be eliminated from the financial
life of Portland.
There Is a well defined undercurrent
of feeling In banking circles that the
conditions imposed by the clearing house
banks will be accepted by the German
American bank between now and Satur
day and that the unpaid depositors in
the old Oregon Trust will be settled
with according to the agreement mail I
two years ago between the German-
American bank and, Judge Gantenbeln
of the circuit court. '

Corbett eatate and other heavy stock

The Normans arrived InVPortland

today at the consummation of the huge

at the time the option was taken that
th hotel would be enlarged either by
carrying out toe original plans of build-

Two Bold Their Shares.
By today's transaction the Normans
secure1 4750 of the 5000 shares of the
capital stock of the Portland Hotel com
pany. But two aharehoiders refused
to come in under the terms of the op
tion. The Allsky Interests and those of
Harry Hunter.' However, there are still
a few small blocks of stock that have
not been deposited. These may be
turned over to the Normans later, un-
der the same terms applying to the

By acquiring the Portland, the Spo
kane hotel men extend their holdings
to four cities of the northwest. They
now own tbe leading hotels In Spokane,
Tacoma, North Yakima and Portland.
; No realty deal ltt recent years has at

Involving the transfer of Portlartd'a big
hotel property. It waa generally be-
lleved at the time the Normana secured
tne option tnac tuey wouia do unaoie to
float a loan large enough to take over
the property at a figure so close to its
actual value. , They did fall in their
efforts to put the deal through In east
ern cities, but were able finally to in
duce Spokane hanks to come to their
assistance. That they were able to do
so Is regarded as the best proof possible
of the desirability of Portland business

be no change in the personnel of the
