OF BiilG LIS
Secretary of State, in Official
Report, Insists Changes
In. his biennial report filed with the
governor yesterday C. S. Tingey, secre
tary of state, urges the creation of a
banking department In the state govern
ment and the appointment of oho or
moro bank eocamlners to give porsonal
attention to tho banking business und
protect the people's money.
Mr. Tingey declares that the banking
"department has como to bo essential to
tho state. He recommended similar ac
tion by the last legislature but without
avail. Ho now aska that the governor
and tho logislnturo givo the matter tholr
earnest attention, jaying:
"1 am moro than over Impressed with
ttio need for tho creation of the bank
ing department. Under the prosont law
there is but one examiner and he Is rer
oulrtd to make examination of each of
uie soventy-elght corporate and one pri
vate bank ut least once a year, but dur
ing tho long Intervals between examina
tions a bank easily could be wrecked
either through bad loans and Investments
or by acts of dishonest or Incompetent
"Neither tho exa.miner nor the secre
tary of state, who Is cx-offlcio bank com
missioner, h&e tho tlmo to give special
attention to vreak or unsound banks un
der the present law. I therefore recom
mend that our banking law bo amended
to create a banking department or bu
reau, that each stato and private bank
or trust company bo examined at leas:
twice a year and that tho present ex
amination foo be reduced and that sal
aries be provided that will enable the
stato to secure men well qualified for
the positions of examiners."
The secretary suggests that tho law
which gives the secretary of ntate final
Jurisdiction In granting or refusing char
ters to banks be changed so as to give
the applicant the right of anneal to t.he
state board of examiners. Mr. Tingey
has refused three charters during the
blcnnlum because he was certain tho
field of the proposed banks was already
adequately supplied with banking houses.
"It has been the policy of thla depart
ment to have fewer but stronger banks."
Tho .statistical portion of the report
shows tho total receipt!! of the de'part
ment were 5234.497.99. Tho Incorporation
license tax netted tho atatc J151.331.25 as
compared to J.15S.690 for tho preceding
two years. Tho decrease Is accounted for
by tho fact that most Incorporations have
reduced tholr capitalization to the mini
mum. During tho two years 1210 automobiles
wore registered and given license, the
fco to the state amounting to 32937.S0.
The total number of automobiles regis
tered In tho state November 30 was
Land patents to the number or 1G93
were Issued, covering ,329,395 acres.
During the blcnnlum 1011 Incorpora
tions wcro organized ln tho state, In
cluding thirty-six churches and 119 for
Investment of funds held far tho re
demption of state bonds' has ijettort the
state 531,972.51 during the two years. The
secretary suggests that tho legislature
authorise tho Investment of funds held
for redemption of bondn maturing In
1916. 1913 and 1920.
P1CEL POST BRINGS
TREE TOSJLT LAKER
Increased Number of Pack
ages Received at Local
Probably tho strangest package yot
received at the local postofflco for par
cel post delivery' Is n tree, which came
yesterday afternoon. While, the tree was
not large It was a perfect fir, sent from
a nearby office in tho mountains to a
Salt I.ako party. A pair of snowshoes
was also received for delivery here.
Turkeys, chickens and butter wero
among the commodities snt in from the
rural districts to be delivered In tho city.
The farmers aro already beginning to
tako ad-antag'o of tho delivery to send
farm products to their city, neighbors.
This feature lc expected to Increase
Of tho 37C parcel post packages re
ceived for delivery at the postofflco
Thursday fifty were Insured, showing
that this feature Is going to prove popu
lar. Tho insurance fee Is 10 cents, and
covers a valuation not exceeding 550.
Tha number of packages both coming in
and going out at the office yesterday
was greater than tho day previous. Ever
sineo tho parcel post went Into opera
tion Wednesday the stamp windows of
the postoffice have been unutually busy
welglilng and supplying stamps for the
Tho greatest trouble, ro far seems to
be the fact that many are mailing pack
ages without putting on the new pwrccl
post stamps. Many come ln with regu
. lar stamps on them, and. according to
the law. they must be "held for post
I age." Others arc mailed ln the Street
I boxes Instead of. the Indicated branch
offices or main office, ond others come
In without a return address.

Members of Legislature Try
ing to Organize for' Mu-
- , tual Benefit,
Efforts ire being made to organise the
ten members of the lotver house 'of the
ilt legislature from Salt I-ake county
Into a compact working force, so that the
ten votes may be cast as a unit ort all
Important matters. Tho members of the
Salt Lake delegation Incline to tho be
lief that no member from Salt Lake can
bo elected speaker, but they hold that
without the votes of Salt Lake county
no country rnembor can be chosen. They
propose, therefore, to vote for the candi- j
date for sp.iaicor who will promise "the
Salt Lake members the most In the way
of Important chairmanships.
There aro thlrty-ono Republican mem
bers of tho lower housp. Jt is expected
that all will agree to abide by a, caucus
vote on the officers of tho house. The
votes of sixteen members are therefore
necessary to enable any candidate to get
the speakership. Tho votes aro from
Salt Lake county. The other twenty-one
voles arc believed to be fairly evenly di
vided between W. J. Scelov of Emery
county and John 7. Henrle of Garfield
county, the loading candidates for spcak
or. Thlt? being the case, tho votes of
the Salt Lake members. If cast as a unit,

Members of the house from Salt Lake
county point out that this situation will
leave Salt Lake in a position to ask for
whatever It chooses In the way of com
mittee assignments. K. L. Judd and
Clatujo T. Barnes wish I ho chairmanship
of the judiciary committee; David Cook
wants tho committee on mines. M. H.

Jane Skolfleld the committee on public

members commlttco assignments of more

however, may come to grief. Country

In the legifllaturo aome. years ago by
Aqulla Nebekcr when the country mem

would be posslblo for tho country mem

to be adhered to. Under tho law, tho
executors cannot sell an' property of
tho estate outright. They must secure
tho permission of tho district court and
then dispose of it to tho highest bidder.
But no doubt exists that the Desorct
National bank will be tho highest. It
is because of tho good price offered that

This will be done today. Mr. Williams
expects to filo his petition this morning.
Under the law, notice of leu days must
be published before the sale is consum
