Schwietert, the popular and well known Burt auctioneer, was at Des Moines taking treatment for a nervous break down. Mr. Schwietert has many friends in this county who will be glad to see him return fully recovered. Reader Comment To the Editor:—The May bulletin of the Algona Iowa State Bank, gives this item, "An abstract of title gives no title to the property described in the abstract." To the ordinary citizen this Is a grotesque statement. Why commit the absurd antic of going to an abstractor when he does nothing for you toward securing title? This question has been asked by Avise men for, lo, these many years. It would be cheaper for the State of Iowa to buy out all the abstractors in the state, even at a high price and take care of titles through the recorder's office. A purchaser should be able to get title to real estate by receiving a slip of paper just as he does when he buys bank stock. As it now is, even the court does not guarantee title may not be questioned. Land titles represent the greatest value in Iowa, yet they are on no stable basis. What then does the abstractor do for the money you pay him for abstracts? He simply furnishes a record of ownership of real estate. Under our present law title system, the entire proceedings of a law suit affecting' title becomes a part of an abstract. A whole divorce case must be spread on the abstract; a suit disputing title becomes a part of an abstract, when an executor administers an estate his various activities, including application to court, order of court, names of heirs, final report, discharge of executor and all the rest part of an abstract. Time and legal action combine to make a whole book of Iowa abstracts. Each abstractor covers a certain period in the history of ownership and only that. He is only responsible for the period named. How then is the purchaser to know his title? He goes to the lawyer, pays a fee and gets an opinion. But he gets no title. All the purchaser has is an abstract and an opinion. If any question of title arises the owner goes to the attorney again and pays another fee. Can this be remedied and the holder of real estate made secure in his title? Certainly it can. When Chicago had Its great fire during t;-.e *• -ve-.tic -. rcmnls of titles wre burned and lost in w|-. ile arena. What wr* to be done? Abstractors were no good. In a pinch they never arc and fro-.n the nature of the problem no\ er can bo anything but scribes. Chicago reported to the Torrcns system of titles for the portion where abstracts had been burred. No question of title eels under this system because the state first takes title and then transfers title to the purchaser. When the state takes title all old mortgages must he paid by the new purchaser Issuing his own mortgage and the olil mortgage is (••in- celled. Everything connected with the nev/ title is in the now owner's name. This one clearing up is fi-ial. There is no appeal from it. The new purchaser gets n slip of paper which is recorded. Title cannot be questioned because the incident was closed when the state took title. The chasing from pillar to post concerning each and every parcel of land by each abstractor is clone away with. The land holder is released from all abstract expense except a small fee for the official service of the state. The abstractors can be converted to the change by buying their books. But the lawyers! Let them make their own answer. The general public should throw up their hats and celebrate their release from abstract troubles. S. H. McNUTT.
