Trust Comp .-ir .y, (I might say this company was MCL composed of local farmers) for a' ";nayi;num amount of $.iO,Ot50,000 for he pi;rpo.=e of rai.=^ing money'to pay .'or the road and its proper equipment riiis mortgage was in due course of time foreclosed in the United Staes Circuit court, and Charles AV. Blair of Fort Scott was appointed special master to the railroad property, o satisfy the judgment obtained. This ';e did and four men. Moses Taylor, !'er.-IinEnd W. I'eck Nathaniel Th.ay- ix Geo. S. Hale and Charles Merriam liid in tho entire lot at $760 000. These -entlemen conveyed to the reorganized railroad company. "The special master's deed was fil- ^d in the several counties along the :ine from Lawrence to the south, line )f the state, in Allen county it j«-as 'iled on the first day of February, STO .".nd recorded in book Q at page • "In tl'.e recording of this deed, the '•e^ister of defds made an error, and -hows in the part of the deed reciting the sale of the property, the name of Mr. Peck as Frederick W. In the granting clause the name is correctly stated as Ferdinand AV. ".Vfew weeks ago > an Abstract of Title to a half sectiofa of land, conr veyed by this deed was made, in the usual long form style and was submitted to an attorney in Kansas City, or examination. Kansas City attor- :iey.-i in.'.i?t that the real estate of the universe and especially Kansas, mu^t '>e conveyed under the laws and usages of Missouri, and under special rules adopted by each e^^amlner, so this particular examiner required the vendor to furnish an abstract sbowtn; ojiies of all instruments recorded ;h!:--. was complied with and this im- ainterlal error, always known to local abstractors, and attorneys, was discovered and a certified copy of tbo^ ' record of the deed, was procured from riouglis county and recorded here, to -•low that tn* name of 'Ferdinand' In' the granting clause the one that conveys was not 'Frederick.' No new conveyance Is made no title changed and but for the length of the instrument no inore attenUon should be given it than to hundreds of affidavits made to correct names which are so often recorded. The transaction, certified copy and recording proliably -ost the grantor ten dollars. Just a llt- •.!e carelessness on the part of the reei.ster of deeds, and if it serves to itake recorders more careful In the future, the public could well afford to -?lm.hurse him for the outlay." .
