Secretary Houston said that not withstanding the wide prevalence of special rural financial establishments abroad, the great mass of farm loans were made by private institutions. adding that in this country, no mat ter what federal or state rural credits legislation was had, much of the lend ing on farm securities would be done by private establishments. The de partment had ascertained after inves tigation, he said, that $930,000,000 is lent on farm mortgages in the United States by banking institutions and state and private funds, and that in surance companies had invested $600,- 000,000 in farm mortgage loans.
