Belief in the future of the Malta
and surrounding country was ex
pressed this morning in the filing ot
the articles of incorporation with the
county clerk for the establishment
ot the Malin State Bank.
Capltaliation Is to be $15,000.
The incorporators are J. W. Siem
ens, John Siemens, Louis Boldlsher
and Edward Bloomlngcamp, all ot
Kiamatn raits, ana A. Kalina, a.
merchant' ot Malin.
According to John Siemens it will
be the first part of October before
the bank can open its doors. The
articles of incorporation must be
duly filed in Salem, which will mean
a wait of sixty days or more before
the bank can open for business.
The bank is the result of 'careful
consideration on the part of the in
corporators, who are convinced that
the Malin country has a future be
fore it. The land about Malin is
very productive, and yields largo
quantities ot flay. It is selling now
for $125 an acre, while some of tha
land about Klamath Falls Is on the
mniket for $100 an acre Much of
the Malin land is former homestead
land, that was settled some years
ago, and is now under irrigation.
