They would'become a quick and
responsive asset. In this new
State it can b3 adopted at great
advantage, because titles have a
brief origin or starting point.
The expense of furnishing certifi-
cates of title would be much less
than in old states where the mu-
niments of title extend through
many volumes. Let the new
State adopt the System. It may
not be put into the constitution
as the legislature will be suffi-
ciently empowered to put it into
forco.if it is the will of the people-
In every sphere of human ac-
tivity great risks call for large
profits. The proposed system
gives security to the ipvestor and
curtails the tribute for credit ex-
tended under the old system.
Within the past fow days the
Wall Street Journal which sffeks
to give information, as to good
security, to moneyed barons and
investors of Wall Street and oth-
er parts of the United States, has
spoken volumes for the system,
by editorially stating that the
Torrens Land Certificate is evi-
dence of the best title known in
law and that the investments in
the same are the best that can
possibly be made. We must con-
clude that if profits are made
commensurate with the risks,
this system would prove a boon
to the borrower.
The assurance fund, contrary
to Mr. Henshaw's contention,
has been held by the highest ju-
dicial authority to be constitu-
tional and the system not a nov-
elty in our jurisprudence. Those
who have been deprived of land,
through no fault of their own,
but through fraud, negligence,
mistake or misfeasance of any
recorder, can resort to this fund
for indemnity for any loss they
might have sustained.
tures for its adoption. The Uni-
ted States govejneaent has offi-
cially approved of the plan by in-
troducing it in the Philippines,
Hawaii and Pcrto Rico. At the
World's Real Estate Csngress in
1903, made up of:well known experts,
the following resolution was car-
ried with but two dissentihg votes:
"It is the sense oj the Worlds
Real Estate Congress that they
shall do what lies in their power
to call the attention of the various
state legislatures to the benefit of
the Torrens System, and recom-
mend its adoption, so modified as to
suit it to their state constitution
I am advised that a number yf
the local unions and one branch
of the Farmers Union of Indian
Territory, havo endorsed the sys
tem. The president of our con-
stitutional convention and Hon.
R. L. Owens, candidate for the
United States Senate, and many
other prominent men in this state
have been considering the system
and are to day earnest advocates
of the same. I assume the respon-
sility for putting a plank, declar-
ing for the system, in our plat-
form for this district. It was en-
dorsed by our convention, and I
venture the assertion that Mr.
Henshaw voted for the distin-
guished gentleman who was eleo-
ted as our delegate to the consti-
tutional convention on that plat-
form. Ah, "consistency, thou
art a jewel."

Mr. Henshaw says, "I take it
that Mr. Franklin, like many
others, has not given this matter
serious thought." Well, that is
going some, but 1 shall treat it as
a friendly thrust. He remind:
me of a man who was on a jury
that could not agree. He bad
hung out against eleven men un-
til they were discharged. After-
ward he remarked, "there were
eleven of tha contrariett men I
ever knew." I am not by my-
self in sympathy for the Torrens
System - The Bar Associations
of nearly every state have de
clared such a system constitution-
al and commended iUCommittees
of different legislatures have done
the same. The Bar Association
of Texas commenced to consider
the proposition in 1897. They
had a special committee to inves
tigate it for five years, and fin
ally in 1904 they passed a resolu
tion recommending the law Just
recently a bill to put in force the
system has been introduced in the
Texas legislature. It is not a
new idea. The system has been
in use in Buda PeBth since the
twelfth oentury. It prevails in
the entire German empire, in
Denmark, Norway, Russia and
the German oantons of Switzer
land. It is the law of all Austra
lia, but the truest test of its mer
its lies in its operation under the
English law. It is in force in
most of the British oolonies, even
in the center of feudal relics
