Legislature Kltnnlil Iaa This Need-
ed Rploriu Next Year -Much
Time nnd Expense Naved.
Tbo last Legislature would
probably liavo passed Represent
ative Robertson's bill to simplify
the transfer of laud titles under
what is known as tbe Torrens
system had it boon better acquaint
ed with its actual workings. In
stead, however, of passing the bill
the wholo subject was referred to
a commission of which Represent
ative Robertson was made chair
man. If the Bulletin is cor-
rectlv informed that commission
has not yet held a meeting or
done anything toward accom
plishing the work delegated to it
by the Legislature.
It is time the matter wob agitat
ed and something done. The
costly system of transfers at pres
ent in vogue is too far behind the
ago tor present requirements,
let alono the constantly increasing
expense incurred in fees for
searching titles, drawing up trans
fers aud recording, all of which
are douo an ay with uuder the
Tho Torreus land transfer sys
tem is the best, if not the only,
system for the retorm of our cum
brous aud costly methods of
changing tho ownership of real
estate. Tho disadvantages of tho
present system aro well known.
The cost and annoyance of get
ting abstracts of title, of having
legal ( 1 ) advice upon the suffici
ency of the abstract, of getting
deeds, etc, has been impressed
upon every man who has had oc
casion to buy or sell land or raise
money on mortgago. This cost
and annoyance increases every
voar. The system is simple today
compared to what it must become
in a century if it is allowed to
develop on present lines. No in
vestigation of titlo is now conclu
sive unless on a suit at law, aud
at every transfer the whole series
of records must be traced back to
the original titlo.
The Torrens Land System bill
to bo reported by tho commission
to the next Legislature and which
should bo promptly passed by
that body will make the beginning
of the end of tho present costly
methods. It will provide means
by whioh a title once investigated
and certified by a court and reg
istered may thereafter be trans
ferred by certificate bb readily as a
share of stock. The state's certi
ficate of title will thereafter bo
conclusive evidence of ownership,
and a transfer of that ownership
becomes a simple matter of sur
rendering ono certificate and
taking out another. Tho measure
is not compulsory. It interferes
with no present rights or customs
of tho poople. But it opons tho
way to plaoo property under tho
new systora and gives an owner
the opportunity, when he has
once gono to tho expense of veri
fying the title to his property, of
making it needless to examine the
Nobody would think of making
the purchaser of a bond or a
share of stock or a ship search
tho record of every transfer back
to tho origiual owner before he
could feel safe in buying it. Such
a proposition would bo considered
absurd. There is no loss absurdity
in maintaining tho prosont system
for transferring land.
It would sooiu to be tho duty of
tbo Commission to gather such an
array of facts and figures con
cerning tho now systom a in
roadinesa for uso in supporting
tboir bill that the Logislaturo will
havo nc possiblo oxouso for not
passing it, bittorly fought as it no
doubt will bo by a few attorneys
and soarchors of records who liavo
a lucrative monopoly in tho pro
Hout cumbrous inothodu.

At least ono nf tbo prominent
members of the Healani Boat
Club iloos not think that his orga
nization lino bepn getting a square
deal in some of the papers. When
interviewed regarding tho rumor
ed intention of that club to follow
the example of the Myrtle Boat
Club in getting a new racing
bargn ho talked straight up and
down about the relations existing
between those two aquatio bodies.
He was checked at tho outset of
his talk with a question about an
assertion freely made around
town by some Myrtle men, to tho
effect tbat on every occasion of
cross purposes their Club gives up
more thau half of tho road and a
piece of the drain.
"About tho dances, for in
"Yes, take tho mattor of dancos.
Tho lleahiuis beitfg in debt de
cided that a monthly moonlight
dance would be a nico way to
help got out of debt. Thore was
nothing of the kind in the Myr
tles' program, and, when they went
to havo a dance on tho samo night,
wo tried to arrange otherwise by
a couforonco, but they would not
give us (iuy satisfaction.
"Now, about boats. Tho con
staut driving of ono club to get
better boats than tho other for
racing takes more monoy than
any of tho clubs can stand. This
sort of thing wbb going on, how
over, until last 'year, when, under
an arraugemont of the Rowing
Association, it was agreed that we
should get those two four-oared
practise shells, identical in ma
and ono for each club, from Au
"So for so good, but lately tho
Myrtles determined to got a bettor
racing barge yes, six oared a
bettor ono than ours. They sont
an order to Rogers of San Fran
cisco for tho barge, but taking
care not to notify the Healanis
of their purpose beforehand.
"Well, I may as well tell you
that the last steamer took away an
order from us for a barge to be
made by Rogers and exactly on
the same modol as tho one order
ed by the Myrtles.
"If ours prove to be twenty
pounds heavier, so long as the
model is strictly followed, we
won't kiok, or if ten pounds light
er thau theirs they will havo no
right to kick. Wo take our
chances on that point.
"I think our action in this mat
ter shows that we want to bo
square, as well as avoid ruinous
competition in getting now boats.
We might if we chose had ordered
a paper boat from Waters of New
York, which would bo far lighter
than the Myrtles' barge, and they
would havo had no reason to com
plain. "Wo roally do not want to row
in better boats tha"n our opponents,
as thou if we won tho victory
would be attributed to the boat.
"It is charged by some of tho
combativo members of tho Myrtlo
that we aro in league against that
club with tho Leilani Boat Club.
There is nothing in this chargo,
although wo may mako any com
bination we ohooso, especially to
ensure a fair field and no favor in
