TORRENS SYSTEM WILL LOWER
NUMBER OF LAND DISPUTES
"Please explain that to me again."
Joe Connery, county recorder,
asked a Day Book reporter to repeat
So the reporter said:
"The city council harbors ' com
mittee has ordered the city surveyor
to make borings in land adjoining
Lake Calumet By means of the dirt
brought up from these borings they
expect to determine whether the land
is natural and God-made or whether
it's artificial, fiHed-in land. This data
is then to be used in ascertaining
who owns title to the land."
"It sounds interesting," said Con
nery. "It looks like one more of those
tangles In Cook county real estate
which would not exist under proper
public organization of the title busi
ness of the country. As the Torrens
system is increased in use I believe
land title disputes will decrease in
number. In this case, which is a
dispute between the Pullman Co. and
the City of Chicago, wWcheverparty
loses is able to stand the loss. But
a title dispute where a workingman
has a citylot or a small suburban
farm taken away from him because
of clouded title is a serious matter.
That's where the Torrens system is
the friend of the little fellow who
wants an absolute cinch, an undis
puted title, to the larid he buys with
savings from his day wages."
