FURTHER LAND REFORMS.
Commissioner Provides for Recording
Patents When Papers Lost.
Washington, Nov. 8. The commis
sioner of the general land office has
formulated a plan whereby parties hav
ing some interest In land, patents for
which were Issued years ago but which

entee, may, without incurring the ex
penses of searching for lost duplicate
receipt or furnishing abstracts ol title,
have such patents sent directly to the
proper county officer for record.
It is believed that this method will
. be the means of placing many of there
ancient Instruments on record and of
straightening out title without Impos
ing extra expense upon interested par
ties other than the fees of county offi
cers. It Is said that many valuable
tracts are thus involved.

Senstor Heyburn Mskes Vigorous Ap
peal to Roosevelt.
Washington, Nov. 8. Senator Hey
burn called on the President yesterday
to protest against further deposits of
government money with New York
banks until those institutions consent
to pay reserves of Western banks in
cash instead of cashier's checks. The
piesideut requested the senator to pre
sent his views in writing, which he
did ss follows:
"On behalf of the people of Ihs
Western states, and especially tbose of
the Northwestern states, I would urge
that no further deposits) of money from
ths treasury of the United States be
made in New York banks except on
the condition that such banks shall
immediately make available in money
to the banks in such Western states the
full amount of the reserves held by
such New York banks on account of
such Western banks.
"The tying np of msny millions of
dollars of Western money representing
the reserves of the Western bsnks held
by New York banks must inevitably re
sult in empowering the New York
banks to determine the time and condi
tions of free resumption of banking
functions by the Western hanks, where
as, If the reserves of the Western banks
could be converted Into available mon
ey at once, the financial situation of
the West would be free from domina

Secretary Cortelyou Swings Club Over
Wasington, Nov. 9 The West is to
receive sll the assiitancc at the com

meet the great demind for money to

discussed the situation with the presi

plan, which will be carried into effect,
unless the Eastern banks tlse to the
occasion and show )m selfishness.
Mr. Cortelyou is of ths opinion that the
large Importations of gold and the
housecleaning which has been done in
New York have placed the banks there
in a materially Improved condition.
The government no longer feels the ne

of meeting the situation which exists

for cash for crop-moving purposes.

Portland, Nov. 7. Distress of the
Title Guarsntee A Trust comnanv
reached a climax yesterday when Judge
Wolverton of the I'nited States District
court ordered the institution into re
ceivership, on application of Nathan!
Coy, a stockholder, thiouith Joseph Si
mon, attorney. Judge Wolverton ap
pointed as receiver Ueorge II. Hill,
vice president of the bank. The
matter was taken Into the Federal court
because Coy is a nonresident nf Oregon,
living near Boeton.
The bank closed on Monday of last
week, with only $9,000 lank money in
its vaults and U,IHI0 due from other
banks, out of deposits aggregating II,
800,000. In the succeeding holidays
proclaimed by the governor, the hank,
unlike the other money institutions ol
the city, rrmsined closed.
The trouble of the bsnk was precipi
tated by the call of State Treasurer
Steel, on the last day it was open for
business, for $100,000 of state funds.
The state has on deposit $31tft,0J0. This
money, says J. Thorburn Koss, presi
dent of the company, and other bank
otiicers, is amply secured by surety
bond in Treasurer Steel's favor for
$100,000 and by timber land collateral
made over to him in the last few days,
from the assets of the bank. How
much depositors will get of their mon
ey depends on the ham. linp of the
bank's assets, which are i f a kind that
cannot be turned quickly into cash.
They consist chiefly of real estate. The
liabilities are placed at $2,600,000
and the assets at$ 8,000,000.
The failure of the Oregon Trust A
Savings bank last Augut-t, started
a run on the Title Guarantee A Trust
company, resulting in withdrawal of
$486,000 deposits up to October .8.
Thia exhausted the bank's supply of
ready funds and it was unable to realize
on its several big projects.
