NOT LEGALLY CONDUCTED
Atlonuy Oriieiul Malonry Ki-imIith hii
Opinion .AflVctinc Building unit I.ohii h-
Attorney General Maloiiey has ren
lered a sweeping opinion against the
present manner in which the build
ing and loan associations of the state
are being conducted. The opinion
is technically, the same as that rcii-
lered by his predecessor and similar
officers in -other states. Mr. Malo
nev's decision is as follows:
1. Building associations cannot
lend their funds tc other corporations
of this state, taking security for their
2. Building ar-sociations cannot
issue s'.ock fully aid up and pay in
terest on profits thereon.
3. To allow building "associations
to take advance piyruents on their
stock and pay interest thereon would
be to permit" then to violate both
the letter and the spirit of the law
to which they owe their existence.
.4. Building associations cannot
lawfully borrow money.
.". Directors of associations can
not be paid even a nominal fee for
('. The expense of a committee in
valuing real estate offered as secur
ity for loans may properly be paid
by the association.
In reply to the q leries. --can build
ing associations collect or deduct
from the monthly installments a
fund for the payment of expenses,
the same to cover salaries or com
missions to agents, clerks, etc.;" and
can membership fees be utilized for
the payment of commissions to
agents," the attorney says:
The law only provides'for the pay
ment of a salary to a secretary, and
for certain other fees to be paid
auditing committee . I recognize the
fact that in order to carry on the
business of such association they
will of necessity incur expense in so
doing, and the law not having pre
scribed the manner and mode Of cre
ating a fund of liquidating such ex
pense, it is necessary to see what
reasonable construction should be
given the law in order to meet such
emergencies. Theie can be no doubt
that office rent, fun iture, stationery,
fuel, clerk hire, would be reasonable
expenses, and should be liquidated.
From what source miust the money
come to defray them? I think ft
should come in the lirst instance out
cf the profits of the association. In
no event should the monthly dues be
applied to such uses until all other
sources of income are exhausted, as
they are intended as payments on
stock. The objection to allowing
membership fees to be applied to
paying commissions to agents is that
thereby a fund is created for a spe
cial purpose, and which under cer
tain emergencies miy become neces
sary to be applied to "the liquidation
of other expenses as " well as such
The officers of bc.ilding and loan
associations claim tl at the banks are
responsible for the agitation of the
matter, as consideiablc money has
been withdrawn from such institu
tions and invested in building and
loan stock. If Atorney General
Maloney's opinion is enforced it will
undoubtedly compel the appointment
of a receiver for every building and
loan association in the state, as it
will be impossible for them to at
once repay the money invested in
paid up stock.
The Habit of CerrleiutiieM.
In youth men are se'f reliant, self as
sertive und self suffic ient. Soon they
find themselves mistaken, possibly in lit
tle things at first, for tie fact is they are
still small in knowledj. e and influence.
Hence the chagrin of the first errancy is
softened by the reflecti n that its conse
quences cannot work l luch harm. Too
often they fail to empiiasize the impor
tance of the value of tl.eir utterances as
their personal influenc'. widen. Hence
their testimony without sufficient proof
for themselves begins to work mischief
for others. Then follow surprises, mis
understandings, alien itions, crimina
tions, heartaches and occasionally some
thing worse. Friendshi ps are broken, in
tegrity is wounded, comidence is shaken,
human testimony ia sut-pected.
Now all this is not t he result chiefly
of any essentially bad trait in human
nature. It arises rathirfrom careless
ness and a sort of insinc ere habit of con
doning the fault on the score of personal
insignificance. "Oh, I didn't mean it!"
covers a multitude of Jiese sins among
our younger friends. Bu t, alas'younger
friends" soon grow into midlife, and the
careless habit, once indulged, barnacles
itself upon age. Boston Commonwealth.
1u Order rieiixed the Cook.
The following story is told on a mis
sionary of the China inland mission, a
bachelor keening honse for himself in the
southern part of China: One morning,
in ordering his dinner, he wished to tell
his cook to buy him a chicken. Instead
of saying "ye"' for chicken he aspirated
the word, s.iying, "Bay me a 'che.':'
His cook thought that was an eminently
proper command and went abont his
marketing in high good humor. At noon
the missionary found no chicken cooked
in fact, no dinner at all, for his cook had
not returned. About dark the man
came back, saying: "This was not a
good day for buying wives, and I have
been all day looking for one, bnt at last I
found one for you. She is rather old and
not pretty, but you can have her cheap.
I have promised $40 for her." New York
