here reproduce an article on said aSBTOia
tions that appeared in last Saturday's
Vrtti It sheds a great deal pt light on
the subject-.:' Read it carefully,, .
BlILUINO AND LOAN ASSOCIATIONS.
Much has been said of co-operative as-'
sociationa for manufacturing and for car
rying on other branches of productive
industry, as well as of co-operative stores,
but what are known as building and loan
associations, representing another appli
cation of the anme mutual principle, are
comparatively little understood. The
latter offer very decided advantages uot
only to tbe working people, but to all
persons in receipt of wages or a fixed
salary, whether shop girls or .railroad
superintendents.. ' ; J i
The building and loan 'association is
iu the nature of a saving bank, all the
depositors iu which are stockholders and
entitled to a pw rmlm share of, the profits
which their aggregated savings cumuli
id a perfectly mutual concern, there be
inro tr l-llkS fT at t slr IllliVil
, AAW it-S IV1S f-a- ,Wi . IWVMwtw j
j ana, a usually managed; the offaccrs fnrj
the most part serving without salaries.
The expenses are exceedingly small.
.A prominent ' feature of such dseocia
tions is the privilege accorded ' to mem
bers of borrowing' money,' iu amounts
proportioned to the number of their
shares of stock on remarkably favorable
terms. This enables a poor man to be
come tbo absolute owner of a bouse isr
from eight to eleven years by paying an
nually but a small sum in addition to the
rent of it.
' A law passed by the - Legislature of
Pennsylvania in 1859 "provides for the
incorporation of building and loan asso
ciations, and prescribes certain" general
rules and limitations respecting them,
Some of the derails of tbeir working are
a little complex, but the plan in the main
is very simple, and entirely within the
comprehension of everybody.-" A man
or woman either who can save ten dol
lars a month, may take ten -shares of
stock, w hich have a nominal; or prospec
tive value of S200 each. B3I continuing
monthly payments of $10 during a term
which varies from eight to eleven years,
he cau withdraw tbe sum . of i, 000 at
the end of that time. Supposing the as
soci.ition fo run niue years, and six
months (which is about the average
period under good management), such a
stockholder actually pays hut $1,140 in
return for the $2,000 which Le obtains
He thus realizes an average annual in
terest of very nearly eight per cent, on
bis money, while five per cent, is the
highest ever allowed by saving banks,
and four per cent, is the mote usual rate,
This example shows the paramount
advantages of such mutual socities sim
ply as a depository for savings. Of
course a smaller or larger amount of
stock may be taken with proportionate
Men who desire to borrow moderate
amounts of money, either for the pur
pose of purchasing or building a house.
or starting in buiness, find quite as great
an advantage from the possession of
stock in a building and loan association
though they may be obliged to pay s
considerable premium in addition to legal
interest, That premium goes to swell
the common fund, and the larger the
profits thus made by the association the
sooner its objects ia accomplished and
tbe end of its existence reached, when
the borrower is not only relieved from
further payments of interest, but bis note
and mortgage are cancled without the
payment or any principal beyond the
amounts which have been received from
him as monthly dues on bis shares of
The stock in these associations may be
transferred at any time, and always for
more than it cost; thus there is no possi
bility of loss, provided honest or respon
sible officers are chosen. The principles
and workings of this, plan cannot all be
explained within the limits of a newspaper
article. Several books have been writ
ten coucern:ng it, and a monthly journal.
The Building Atfociatio J-mrnal
devoted to the subject, has been publish
ed in Philadelphia for more than a year
The idea of such associasions originated
in Scotland about 1815. The first one
in this country was organized in Frank
ford, Philadelphia. January, 1831. The
number now in this city is estimated at
350, and the average of eapittl invested
in then! at upwards of $25,000,000. " "
