Farm Loan Act To

Whether or not the new farm loan

by Congress and has had the approval

effect upon agricultural interests in
Hawaii has not been learned; but it
is qu'te certain that it will have far
reaching effect on the mainland.
The act provides a system for loan

long periods and prescribes an author
ization plan for easy repayments. The
legal rates of interest in- the law is
six per cent. This In urban circles,

per cent money is quite prevalent in

The purpose is to attract money to
the farm loan Held, and a method has
been worked out whereby those who
have money to lend can find safe in
vestment In the form of debentures of
bonds of small or large denominations,
issued by the banks and based on the
security of mortgages on farm lands.
The borrowing proceeds under the '
general supervision of a federal farm
loan board in the treasury department,
composed of the secretary of the treas
ury, as' chairman ex-offico, and four
members appointed by the President
The loans are made exclusively
through national farm loan associa
tions composed of borrowers.
These associations shall be share
holders also In the farm banks, and.
in that way the members who are bos
rowers will share in the profits of
the bank. The money for the loans is
to come partly from the capital of the
banks and partly from the sale by the
banks of bonds secured by first mort
gages on farm lands. The national
farm land associations will be com
posed of ten or more persons who own
and cultivate farm land qualified as
security for a mortgage loan under
the new act, provided the aggregate of
loans desired by the membership is
not less than 20,000. There is an
elaborate system of -safeguards, the
result of many years of study by ex
perts and commissions. Some of these
commissions traveled in Europe and
culled from experience of farm loan
organizations almost the world over.
The lawmakers believe they have a
law adapted to the peculiar conditions
in the United States. Along with the
strictly governmental enterprise, there
is authorized a system of Joint stock
land banks that may carry on the
business of lending directly to farm
borrowers. These banks must have a
capital of not less than $250,000 and
be under the supervision of the federal
farm loan board.
The new law is expected to give a
great impetus to agriculture ly en
abling1 the farmer to realize on his se
curity and provide himself with work
ing capital, just as meuhants and
other business men may do. But It
is claimed that one of the great fea
tures of tiie new law will be educa
tional in demonstrating to the Ameri
can farmer the advantages of co-operation.
