thought of the Torrens' system, and ro
plled In onthuslastlc pralse of lt. Mr.
Scott sald at tho outset that he had been
studylng the system for some days past,
and was convlncod that It was a great

most ' [ntermlnable annoyance to persons

he was convlnced that had the Torrens

Mr. Scott seemod to ho nnablo to say too
much for lt. Ho belleved that Iho tlrrrs

went on to tell how easlly and slmply it
would operate, taklng the transfer of

"Ho has been elected by tho Legislature

The vlew taken by Senator Danlel Is
