A stringent State law is needed to
regulate the establishment of banks.
There are too many wild-cat Onanclal
schemes now In existence In Chicago.
Not wishing to compete with the Dig
hanks, Irresponsible people are starting
up small banks In the outlying districts
or Chicago, from time to time. This
practice has bad disastrous results
upon the business and financial Inter
ests or the entire city. Many hundred
small business men and traders have
been ruined by this class or Institu
tions. t .
This nefarious practice' should be
stopped and the only way to atop It Is
by municipal legislation.
A provision ought to be made In the
city charter authorising the dty under
Itf police power to regulate the estab
lishment of banks aad creating la
pursuance of this work a board for
the examination of all proposed new
banking concerns. Snch a board
should be given nmple power to exam
ine Into tbe financial standing of the
promoters of these Institutions, and
none should be allowed to be licensed
unless such as could show assets ample
for the carrying on of their business,
sufficient to cover the amount of their
deposits, and sound and substantial
enough to thoroughly protect their
There can be no question as to the
right and the Justice of the city to
exercise such power under a properly
constructed charter provision. If the
city hns the right to regulate plumb
ers, to regulate engineers, to regulate
the elctrlcnl business, to regulate pawn
brokers and the scores of other busi
ness enterprises and Industries over
which It exercises unquestioned super
vising powers, It certainly has a per
fect right to regulate the banking busi
ness, which Is of far more Importance
than anything In the line of business
la the city, because upon the legitimate
and honest business methods of these
Institutions depends tbe welfare of the
entire city In Its business and commer
cial life, while methods of a contrary
kind Indulged In by small, Irresponsible
speculative concerns only results In
failures that'lnvotvo Injuriously tbe In
terests of tbe entire community. How
