Honolulu Papers Find
"New" Story That Is Old
Both Honolulu papers have JUBt dis
covered the fact of the consolidntion
Into the present Bank of Maui, Ltd.
of the former First National Bank of
Walluku, First National Bank of Pala,
and the Paia National Bank, the
lull story of which was told Beveral
months ago in the Maul News. The
story they now have is also wrong, in
that it has the three banks combining
under a national charter.
The fact is, as previously stated,
the three banks have surrendered
their charters as national banks, and
have combined under a territorial
charter. This was done for the
reason, that Clarence H. Cooke, pre
sident, and one of the principal stock
holders, could not hold his position in
the three banks under the law against
inter-locking directorates ; and also
because under the territorial law the
bank has more latitude, particularly in
the matter of lending money on real
estate security. Other than this there
is really no vital change, the three
institutions having previously been
virtually the same except in name.
DEATH OF FORMER MAUI MAN

6 years was a resident of Makawao,

He was in the contracting business at
the time of his death.
