A Demand That One Who Owes the
Gilbert Bank Shall Pay Up.
Kdl tor Statesman :
I see by tho Ollbort receiver's re
port on file at tho court houso that A.
F. ITofor, Jr., owes tho ostato. Why
don't tho rocolvor do his duty and
make him pay? Or If Mr. Hofor Is so

out bnlng forced to? ORPHAN.
(From the Statesman, Feb. 11th.)
FROM MR. HOFER.
He Has Something to Say About That
Balance and Other Matters.
Since you lwivs seen lit to admit to
your columns nn nnnonymoun Item
signed "Orphan," concerning- tho Gil
bert bank recelvershp, I trust you will
glvo space to tlila reply. The writer
says that I am owing that concorn a
balauco, which Is a fact, but ho for
gets to state that the claims I have
against the bank nro fully four times
as much as my ovordraft. No offort
has over boon mado on tho part of Re
ceiver (latch or any ono olso, to col
loct thlaovudrnftof about $10, nolth
er In person nor by lottor, nor by for
mal notlco of any kind. I liavo twice
received notlco of a smnll dividend
from tho rocolvor, and confidently bo-
llovo that if half as much diligence
wej-o given tho subject of collecting
claims, tho unfortunnto doposltora
would havo received moro dlvldonds
before now. Furthermore, bow did
"Orphan' 'learn about this particular
case? Theso claims havo novor beou
published, nnd tho only conclusion Is
that ho Is nn olllcer of tho court, or
CAPITAL JOURNAL, 8ALEM, OREGON, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY ,
