"MAKING MEN GOOD BY LA VS."
The prohibition discussion in Missouri
has given the occasion for much idle
saying of the generality, "You cannot
make persons good by law." Like most
generalities, this comes tripplingly from
the tongue without any burden of sense.
For that phrase, as used, simply means
nothing at all.
In the most imaginably perfect state
of society a law might conceivably be
an element of discord and so be a wick
ed thing. Even in such a social state as
it is wholly within the bounds of swift
progress to attain, laws for morality
and laws prohibitory of one thing or
another might be needed not at all or in
very sparing degree. Hut to take a
doctrine fitted to one condition of society
and apply it to another hus no value
Now, it is true with emphasis that to
lay down police codjs of conduct-like
don't sell whiskey, don't beat your
grand-mother and don't do a great many
other things-is not at all the limit of
the social function. It is even stupid
and close to criminal to rely on such
crutches for good conuct when the eco
nomic and political conditions that make
so many persons lame are unrectilied.
Possibly indeed, it may be said cer

OKLAHOMA BANK LAW.
The Oklahoma Guaranty Bank De
posit law went into operation Feb. 14,
l'.iOH. The chief features of the law
are as follows:
A guarantee fund is created and
placed under the general management
of the State Hanking Hoard.' Each
bank and trust company organized un
der the law3 of the state is required to
contribute 1 per cent of its average
daily deposits for the preceding year,
less deposits of United States and state
funds, properly hecured. Annually
thereafter each such bank and trust
company shall report its average daily
deposits and contribute 1 per cent on
whatever this amount may exceed the
previous averages. If the fund is de
pleted from any cause, a Fpeeial assess
ment is levied to keep up the fund to 1
per cent, of the total deposits. Any
new bank or trust company, when or
ganized, shall pay J! per cent, of its
capital stock into the guarantee fund.
From the fund thus created the deposi
tors of any insolvent bank or trust com
pany complying with the provisions of
the law are to be paid immediately, the
state then having a first lieu upon the
assets of the insolvent corporation.
The Oklahoma law litis not "closet'
the door of hope against the reckless
and incompetent banker," but has ac
tually opened it much wider than it was
before; ho that the state today fci iiis
to be entering upon an era of wildcat
banking, which if it is not checked, will
ultimately result in financial disaster,
Hetwcen JanuaJv 1 and October 111
forty-seven new state banks were or
ganized in Oklahoma; and all but five
of these were capitalized at only $10,
000. The maria for starting new banks
is not confined to the towns; in the little
village of Harrah, which has but about
150 inhabitants, two banks have been
established, their total deposits being
less than $15,000.
Men of indifferent characters are al
lowed to oriranize banks. One of the
new banks in Oklahoma was started by
a man just released from the state pen
itentiary; another, by a man who had
twice failed in business and had then
organized a national bank. In this he
obtained only $27,000 deposits on a cap
ital of $25,000. On the first of Mast
J uly he started a state bank under the
new law, and by September 2:1 his de
posits amounted to $lll,:iSt.T5. In an
other case a saloon-keeper, who had
been forced out of business by the pro
hibition law, started a bank on a very
small capital and soon had deposits ro
the amount of $:!0,000 or $40,000.
Reckless banking is in evidence. Un
der the new Oklahoma law bankers are
found offering 5, t, and even 8 per cent,
interest. The false impression is
created that the state's cretlit is pledged
t'i pay all losses, some of the banks
even printing on their checks state
ments to the effect that "Your Depos
