Land Sharks and Others So Bold In Their Juggling of Books and De scriptions That Uncle Sam May Qet Them. Thoro are tnoro suttB fllod In tho courts of Van Buren County, Michi gan, to removo clouds from land titles than thoro ara fllod for that purpose In any othor county In tho United States, Including thoso containing the largest cities in tho country. Thoro hnvo boon moro professional land thtovos at work in Van Buren County than in any othor county in tho United States, nnd thoy are still at work. Men counoctod with cortain linos of business and using officials olected in somo townships as tholr tools aro ongagod all of tho tlmo In clouding tho titles of honest and bona fldo land owners. This fact has dono moro to koop tho county back than any other thing. Tho bad namo given to this part of tho Stato of Michigan by tho land crooks Is bocomlng a by-word through out tho nation. Many of thoso crooks claim land on tho strongth of tax tltlos ob talnod after tho rightful ownors had paid tho taxes through Juggling of descriptions nnd tax books. Efforts aro to bo mado to roach somo of thorn through Federal action, as tho peculiar hold thoy hnvo on local authorities precludes hopo of reform In that direction. Victims of theso bands of crooks aro udvisod that if thoy llvo outsldo of Michigan thoy can bring suit against olllclnls, backors, brokers or othors who dnmago them or tholr In terests In tho U. S. courts. Tho citizens of Van Buron County should Svi.ko up to tho 'situation and rotlro thoso grafters to tho ponlten tiary or to somo othor placo whoro their publlo records cannot Injure tho community. Van Buron County is naturally rich in soil, dollghtful in climate nnd geo graphically ideal for success in overy lino. Its prospects hnvo boon blighted. Tho testimony of all outside pooplo who havo Invested thoro Is that thoy havo boon skinned and botherod by tho land shark syndicate.
