Inefficiency of Operators
The meeting yesterday showed !

tea that at the outset the company

CAN DO BUSINESS
Another question which is deeply
interesting the busines men of Hono
lulu is whether a minority of the
1 stockholders of a bank can transact
' business. This point is fully covered
lhe following extract from a letter
ot instructions to bank cashiers from
j the Comptroller of the Currency, Wil-
Ham B. Ridgely, dated Washington,
D. C., November 29, 1901:
"it is unnecessary under the Na-
uonal Bank Act. to have a majority
of the stock represented at the an
nual meeting, as any number of
shareholders may organize and elect
directors. Notice need not be given
of the meeting, unless provided for
; by the by-laws, or business is to be
transacted that requires a specific
stock vote, such as the amendment of
artices Qf assoclatlon; In which
event' thirt' ,ia-vs' notice ln writins
or by publication in a local newspaper
should be given shareholders, if the
articles do not provide to the con
trary. "If the shareholders meet on the
day named in the articles for thc an
nual meeting, but do not elect direc
tors, they may adjourn the meeting
j from day to day (exclusive of' Sun-
s or legal holidays) without no
tice. If they do not meet on" the day
fixed, or meet and adjourn to a future
date (da's intervening)
provided by Section 5149 of the Unit
ed States Revised Statutes."
