LAN SHARK BILL
BECOMES A LAW
President Taft Signs Measure,
and t Will Become Op
erative in Thirty Days.
THE EFFECT IS DOUBTFUL
Chief Executive Expreues Doubt u to
Wisdom of 1 Per Cent
The loan shark bill ! at latt a law.
and will bo In operation In thirty days.
President Taft signed the bill yesterday
morning Otter a conference with Sena
tors Tanter and Curtis and Representa
tives Johnson. Dyer and Adair, all of
whom hae been Interested in the bill
since Its Inception.
Though signing the bill, the President
sent a memorandum to Congress ex
pressing the belief that the per cent
rate a month is experiments?); but stat
ing It as his opinion that the rate will
lx sufficient to allow the transaction
with reasonable remuneration of all legi
In the course of the memorandum, the
"I have concluded to sign this bill be
cause Its general purpose Is one with
which every good citlsen must sympa
thize." He states that It has been represented
to him tha,t the rate la too low to al
low leclimate pawnbroklng. and that it
will result cither in driving pawnbrokers
to Maryland and Virginia, from where
they may operate without restriction, or
will Induce others to Ue In the District
and put the law at defiance. He is hot
satisfied, howeter, that money lenders
with sufficient capital cannot do a legiti
mate business at a rate of 1 per cent a
month, and sees no reason why the ex
periment should not be made. He sug
gests that In case the rato Jirovrs too
low to be workable, it will nc an easy
matter for Congress to" Increase the per
centage to 14 or 2 per cent.
In addition to the establishment of tha
1 per cent a month rate, the other Im
portant provisions of the law relate to
tho fixing of a JJTO loan limit and the
establishment of a license fee of J3DO.
The pawnbrokers and loan companies
of the District do not hesltste to express
tho opinion that the new law will neces
sitate the abandonment of business by
many or tnem. It will, however, not
bring about this result immediately, as
It will require about a ear for the liqui
dation of the pledges on hand
There arc only about seven pawnbrok
ers In the District, but the number of
loan companies Is greater.
