Petition to Declare
Lytle Bankrupt Fails
It's no use trying to have afarmer
declared bankrupt That's federal
law, as . was shown In United States
district court this morning when
Judge Bean dismissed a petition to
have E. JE. Lytle, former railroad build
er, declared a bankrupt
An involuntary petition - In .bank
ruptcy was filed against Lytle some
time ago ly certain of his creditors,
but testimony this morning was that
his assets are approximately $600,000
as against approximate liabilities of
. But the rest reason that Judge Bean.
dismissed the petition was that Lytle
showed that he is the owner of 6000
acres near Walla Walla, and the bank
ruptcy law provides that a fanner may
nor. os xorceo tmo Bankruptcy.
The attempt was made . following
Lytle's turning over his farm to a
creditor to run as trustee. Otber cred
itors, fearing the trustee would nave
an advantage of them, tried to have
Lytle declared bankrupt. - .

report of the results of his investiga
tions of the charge made by the banks
of this group for the various services
which they perform. The day a pro
gram was' so crowded with events that
I there was no time to discuss It and
no action was taken upon it It waa
considered so valuable by some that ft
will doubtless be discussed formally
at the state convention to be held la
Portland next month.
The report shows there is now BO
uniformity in making charges for serv
ices rendered. A great many banks do
a great many things free for which
other banks charge up to $1. it is
the concensus of opinion that it would
be better for the banks snd fairer to
the publio generally it all customers
had to pay uniform fees for like serv
ices rendered and It thoae fees were
fixed at the lowest possible figure
commensurate witb the service ren
dered. Secretary Etaramons' report cov
ers particularly - exchange charges oa
checks and drafts, general collectlone
and escrow charges. The report is of
equal interest to jobbing houses as to
Banks Charge Different Bates. The
report Is a summary of the replies re
ceived from SS banks, no names being
given. All were from points outside
of Portland because the experiences
of country hanks are different from
those of city banks. Practically all
banks reporting favor their correspond
ents, doing much work free because
of this fact. This Is the case with
sight drafts drawn on customers when
received from correspondents. Bome,
however, charge from 1Q cents to IB
cents per hundred, with 16 cents per
hundred for each additional $100' over
$$00. Only two banks make uo charge
when sight drafts come from jobbers
on customers of the bank. The charges
mad range from 10 cents per $190 to
60 cents flat for each item. Most
banks 'make no charge for sight drafts
drawn by their customers whether the
collection is made or not For collec
tion of interest on notes left in their
keeping few banks make charges. Five
