(From, Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Jan. 10.-8pecial. Secretary
Royse of the BUt Banking board ha made
the following recommendation! to the legis
lature: While the banking act of thla state In the
main ha proven very satisfactory, expe
rience nan shown that some needed amend
ments are required to make It effective.
Under the present provision banks under
the supervision of this department are re
quired to pay for but one examination each
year. Experience proves that It Is some
times necessary to make mors than one
examination each year In order to keep
the requirements of the law enforced. This
Is usually due to the negligence or In
competency of the management of the
bank, snd I would respectfully recommend
an amendment providing that an exam
ination fee (hall be paid for each exam
ination found necessary by the department.
There Is no reason why. In eases where
the management makes more than one ex
amination necessary, that the work should
be done for nothing.
With regard to a surplus fund, under
the piesent revenue law a bank Is taxed
on Its capital, surplus and undivided
profits. This provision of the law ha a
tendency to discourage, on the part of
banks, the building up of a surplus fund,
which Is certainly a safeguard to the sol
vency of a bank, and the department be
lieves that It would be wise to only tax
the capital and surplus up to the point
where the surplus equals 20 per cent of
the capital. This would have a tendency
to encourage' the building up of a surplus
which could not be but beneflolal.
F.xtendtn; Lesa Limit.
It Is further recommended that the pres
ent banking act be amended so that a
bank may loan 20 per cent of It capital
and surplus to any one Individual, Arm or
corporation. Instead or 20 per, cent of Its
capital, aa now provided.
The appropriation for each examiner by
the last legislature was f 1.200 for the bled
nlum. making two each year for expense.
which Includes transportation. 1 It must be
evident to the lawmaking body that this
sum Is entirely inadequate unless the ex
aminers accept free railroad transports
. tlon. If, In the opinion of the next leals-
l.lim k. ..llrn.J ...... . . .,,11 ..J
should be abolished, the present banking
act should be amended and appropriation
made sufficient to cover the traveling ex
penses of the examiners, which. It Is esti
mated, would require an appropriation
about double th amount heretorore appro
My predecessor recommended that th
Word '"bank" be defined by statute,, and
my experience bears him ' out In making
the' recommendation. The statute should
rovUi that the word "bank" Or "Danker
e used only by an. Individual, firm or cor
poration . chartered to do a banking busi
ness, and ti e word "bank" or ' bank rig '
be specifically denned as doing any one of
the following: Receiving deposits, paying
checks, buying and selling exchange.
Pursuing any one or all of the above a

rooming at the Rhodes rooming house for
three weeks When th disease was dis
covered, and that the family had every
chance to become Infected during that
time. That Rhodes' clothing was thor
oughly fumigated when he was discharged'
by Dr. Bellwood and that Rhodes was di

his own fault If direction were not car

New Rate for Supervisors.
HASTINGS, Neb., Jan. 10. (Special.) In
following a ruling by the county attorney
the Adam county Board of Supervisors has
departed from the long established custom
by which new members of the board have
begun thslr service On the second Tuesday
In January following their election. The
constitution declares that all county of
ficer shall begin their service on the
first Thursday following the first Tuesday
In January. The office of supervisor, how
ever, I not mentioned In th constitution,
nor Is there any statutory provision de
claring directly when supervisors' terms
begin. The only law on the subject 1 one
providing for a reorganisation of boards
on the second Tuesday in January fol
lowing election. Until this year outgoing
members of the board have always served
until the second Tuesday. County Attorney
Snider ruled to the contrary and accord
ingly the terms of the new members will
date from the first Thursday after the first
This Is a question which has occasioned
considerable discussion In various counties
throughout the state. It has never been
passed upon by the supreme court and
there Is, therefore, no fixed rule to follow.
The Adams county board has reorganised
with Charles E. Hill as chairman.
