FAVOR BOARD ON CHARTERS
Minnesota Bankers Would Limit Num
ber of New Institutions.
St. Paul, Dec. 23.Six hundred rep
resentatives of Minnesota state banks
in convention here went on record,
with but one dissenting vote, in favor
of the enactment by the legislature
of a law giving to some board or com
mission the power to refuse bank
charters when in its opinion the or
ganization of such bank or banks
would be detrimental to the best in
terests of the people.
The vote was taken at the request
of Albert H. Turrittin, state superin
tendent of banks, after a resolution
had been introduced by M. T. Dunn,
president of the Citizens' State bank
of Brainerd. This resolution contem
plated giving to the superintendent
the power to grant and deny charters
at his discretion, but Mr. Turrittin
and others objected to this as giving
too much authority to one man.
