That awful plank In tlio National Democrat lo platform of 1003 known n.s "Hank Guaranty" is now receiving attention nt tliu hands of our stato legislature. During the rccont cam- i'.ugii uieru wore 1101 n lew oi lilt' lenders of tlio opposition who pro nounced the prinolplo altogether wrong, but tho sentiment, especially in Nehrnska, Is rapidly changing and n law will undoubtedly bo pasbed dur ing the present, tession that, will make tho depositors in Nebraska banks wife. 'I he Corn-Art a few wcoks ngo pub lished an article upon this uubject by our fellow townsmnn, Mr. Argabrlght, in defenso of tho "prlnclplo" of Hunk Guaranty which presontcd a new fea ture that of "state ccrtlflentcs" in plneo of an idle "cash" fund for tho protect ion of depositors in fulled banks. Tho Argus in its issuo of last week makes reference to tho subject, endorsing tho State certificate plan as "meritorious," l)Ut suggf sts as a better ohm that I ho directorate of each bank bo personally responsible for tho paymont of all de positors therein. Anything bearing upon this subject in rood for thought, nnd tho ninter is so complex that no ono man or sot of men will be ablo to formulate n bill that will be perfect in the beginning, yot a step or two forward is to be .do hired. Wo havo boforo us a bill pro pared by Fred Volpp, of the Tenth Senatorial District, entitled, "An Act Providing For Tho Organization, Sup ervision, And Control Of Hanks, And For Tho Liquidation Of Insolvent Jlanks, And Tho Protection of Deposit ors Therein; And The Repealing of Chapter rj. Compiled Statutes Of 11)07, And A 1 Acts And Parts Of Acts" In comlsteiit With This Ac." O r opin ion has bcon asked regaiding tlio merits of this bill. It is a step in the right direction; it provides for an increase of the capital Jitoelc of banks generally, especially in towns like Hcd Cloud tour banks would l.o required to have a paid up cnplt.lofS:.0,(ll)0.C() each). The Capi tal Stock must be olivet nt tho begin ning with actual ea-h, allowing not to exceed twenty-llvo per cent to be in Vested in Hanking House and Fixtures which shall bo lis ed at their actual cash value. Jt provides severe nonal- tles for irregularities jn baukipg; pro The bulkof lotiiHordinarlly accepted by our banks could not bo classified by the above list. Possibly this is an overnight or is it posslb'o that two nntno commercial paper is not to bo considered good? Tho plan of assessing each bank on tho item of "deposits" for tho purpose of creating a "banking fund" out of which examiners salaries should bo paid, ote, Is good, as It properly equal izes the expense. Our space is too limited to offer an extended criticism of tho "bank guar anty" feature of this bill. It provides for a voluntary membership in what It terms the "Depositors Protective Fund." Nono except incorp irated hanks having as many as flvo directors each of whom owns at least ton shares of its stock not pledged for tho secur ity of any debt; that has no money loaned to any of its activo inanngors; that has a capital and surplus equal to ton percent of its gross deposits, and other qualifications too numerous to mention, are ellgiblo to membership, which ucco-sarlly debais all individual and partnership banks. A voluntary membership in such a fund would dofoat the purpose of state law to protect nil depositors. If u bank desires to make its depositors porfectly secure it can do so voluntar ily under any law. -oven the Moral Law. "Tlio Depositors Protective Fund" carries some benefits, however, de signed to attract banking corporations to its membership, viz., all public funds belonging to the state, county, city, township, village or school district shall be deposited in such banks with out special bonds or other security be ing required, nnd it shall bo unlawful to deposit them elowhoro As Individual and partnership banks which aro ofton more tollable than corporations, are debarred from the privileges of tho "Depositors Protect ive Fund," such a law, if passed, could hardly bo called a Stato Hanking Liw in .tho broad souse of tho term, but rather u law creating or authorizing a giant banking company known as the "Depositors Protective Fund." It would bo a safe institution, but the qualifications nocessary-to member ship might not admit of our having a "branch," handy. Our idea of a "Hank Guaranty" is to inako it applicable to all banks; make ono as safe as the other in the law's requirements, and make them all subscribe. The Argus suggestion that the di rectors give bonds and become per sonally icponslble for the full amount of tho banks deposits is wisely put. The bond should bo made to tho stato. approved by tho State Banking Hoard, and tho state take charge of the Insol vent bank. No "fund" is necessnry other than tho "stato certificates" which would bo much more acceptable than "directors obligations," as they would bo in amounts to correspond with tho paper currency or the country and receivable at all banks. Mr. Argabrighfs plan is more in tho natuie. of mutual insurance. Kach bank is 'assessed" on its deposits, if need be, to insure its depositors. Tho insurance company (which in this case is the stato) should seo that its mem bers aro responsible and worthy of their charters. Directors and bond men might somotimo fail, but an in surance company like the state hardly ever.
