John Breidenthal Severe in llis Recent Report. Discusses Plan of Working of a Topeka Concern. EXPENSES VERY HEAVY How People lVho Withdraw Lose Their Money. Record of Building Associations That Have Failed. Discussing the building and loan asso ciations in general, in his report,. Bank Commissioner Breidenthal states that the Kansas "national" associations make a better showing than the foreign associa tions that have done business in the state. The report says: "The Aetna Building and Loan associa tion, of Topeka, I consider th best na tional association doing business in the west; yet what a road it has traveled to arrive at its present . position, and how the pathway Is strewn with the poor victims who, after paying their dues for years, cannot withdraw and pkiv an even tjame. Examine the statement tor June 30 of this, the best of the lot; nute the im mense expense account over $18,700 ex pense of organization and first manage ment: a clear steal, for which the present management, however, is not responsible. Observe the following items in the prottt account, which are riot earnings, but de ductions from the money paid by stock holders, to wit: Installment stock to guarantee fund $!9.4"3 29 Profit on withdrawals 7,9 i0 Membership fees 1.0a9 4S Total $108,, 403 05 Add to this the membership fees paid to agents, which do not bhow on the books of the com pany, estimated 50,000 00 and we have a total of $15s,4o3 05 paid Into the 'profits1 of the association by stockholders that is, the common stockholders. And what have they re ceived in return thus far? The statement discloses what, as follows: dividends to stockholders JS8.213 21 Interest on withdrawals 'i.W Inrerest on prepaid stock r tit Interest on full-paid stock 1.2S4 97 A total of l'3.24s 34 or $". 1M. 71 less than they have contrib uted to the profit account. This is the net aggregate result for the common stock holders in the largest, safest and best 'gener.il' or natioiiM) association in Kan sas and the west, at the end of seven and one-half years. Those who withdrew early are the heaviest losers: those who h:ive been paying in for four years can now withdraw without loss: and those who have been paying for a longer period can withdraw with a fair prof't. and if thev CuntiJiUe for the full period of ten years will diaiht'.ess receive the par value of iheir stock.

Harper, president of the University of Chicago, hopes soon to " have Count Lypf Tolstoi, the eminent P.ussian author, humanitarian and re former, as his guest. President Harper has just returned "from a visit to' the count's home in Russia, where he Fpent a delightful time. He is the most aromlnent exponent in this country of the Tolstoi cult. of the most expensive local, and seven times the average of locals. A glance at the comparative statement of the nine principal local associations (page 132) as well as the tables showing the withdrawal value of stock at each six-month period (pages 134 to 13ti), demonstrates conclu sively that local associations are the only ones that are entitled to be classed as mutual co-operative companies. "A careful examination of the results obtained in a large number of these na tional associations demonstrates the fact that 75 per cent, of the stockholders with draw and suffer a loss of from 25 to 75 per cent, of their investment. In view of this fact, it should not be a difficult mat ter for any association, with any sort of management, to fulfill its contracts with the remaining 25 per cent.; yet few, very few, have done so, and many, very many, have absolutely failed. I contend that any business that must depend upon 75 per cent, of its investors losing a portion of their principal in order that the, re maining 25 per cent, may reap a "fair protit is not a desirable place for the in vestment of funds by persons whose in come is uncertain and who may be com pelled at any time to discontinue their payments, and that no such association should be permitted to do business as a mutual co-operative enterprise; for the only mutuality that exists, and the only point where there is co-operation for 75 per cent, of the stockholders is in the payment of losses and expenses out of their principal." In introducing his report Mr. Breiden thal explains that the delay is due to the failure of the officers of associations to make proper reports to the department. When the law tirst became effective he sent out 5J0 letters explaining what would be expected in the report from the asso ciations doing business in the state. About 60 replied. There are now 40 local and 12 national associations in Kansas. The law required reports in March and September. This was deemed inadvisable, and after conferring with the attorney general the commissioner asked for these statements In June and December. The report calls special attention to the law requiring officers of associations to give bonds; states that usury laws are applicable to these associations, and that solvency consists of having assets equal, at their market value, to the liabilities of the association and that the liability of a stockholder is the book Value of his stock. Further, that cumulative fines such as are likely to prove confiscatory of the stock are unlawful. Of the Great Kastern Co-operative Loan company of Emporia which he took charge of the commissioner says: "I re gret to say that the officers of the Em poria association induced a large number of their stockholders to transfer their stock to a South Dakota association that is not authorized to do business. The plan of this South Dakota association is a very unjust and inequitable one and the transfer to the same was an outrage. The business was transacted before the taking effect of our law and there is no means of redress for the victims." Another which, fell by the wayside was the Continental of Kansas City, Kas. "Prom the records of this association showing its expense account in its early history one must conclude that it was conveived in sin and brought forth in iniquity for the sole benefit of the gang.." The Mid-Continent ot corteyviue rauea. "The failure of this association," says the commissioner in this report, "is due to a combination of incompetency, rascality, and a general lack of knowledge of the business of a loan association." The commissioner refers to the National Savings and Loan association of Tepeka. He says: "This association was organized by a. 'noted promoter' of fake enterprises, and in its early history ail its receipts, I am informed, were appropriated by the ! "promoter, who issued stock to pay nis I personal bills. Later on, a number of j honorable gentlemen of good standing, but ! who were wolully lacking in knowledge ! of the business of loan associations, un dertook to put it on its feet. They are wiser now, though poorer in purse than a vear ago. The losses to stockholders are considerable in the aggregate, al though no individual has lost heavily, owing to the short life of- the associa tion." As a general proposition, referring to foreign associations doing business in the state, the report says: "For every dollar of profits they have paid our people four dollars of losses have been sustained through them. Eighty per cent, of the foreign associations that were doing busi ness" in Kansas five years ago have failed." Mr. Breidenthal says in conclusion: "Not a day passes that I do not receive inquiries with reference to some 'fake' In vestment scheme, such as 'Tontine Mer cantile companies,' 'Tontine Investment companies.' 'Diamond Investment com panies,' and all sorts of get-rich-quick schemes, none of which come within the scope of legitimate business enterprises, anil all of which will bring grief to at least 75 to S5 per cent, of those who invest, and jov to the 15 or 25 per cent., pro vided the other fellows will put up long enough and then drop out. No. business principle is involved in any of them, and none are authorized to do business in Kansas, nor can they receive authority to do business in this state. The next legislature should pass a law prohibiting this class of business under severe pen alties." Newton Fair Dates. Newton. June 30.

Continued on Page 5. 0E ON GRIMES. His Experience With, a Parrot in Kansas City. The Kansas City Times today con tained the following: "A very valuable parrot at the union depot yesterday afternoon created a laugh at the expense of Frank Grimes, state treasurer of Kansas, who came in on a late train yesterday afternoon. The parrot had a pretty good command of the English language, and when Mr. Grimes passed near it in going through the depot, it called out in a decidedly masculine tone of voice: " 'Hello, Frank! How is everything?' "Now, when anyone asks Grimes huw everything is going, he naturally sup poses the Burton campaign for the caucus nomination for United States senator by the Republican minority in the next Kansas legislature is referred to. So Mr. Grimes suddenly stopped taking his short-grass strides, believing that one of his friends had called to him. Turning around he saw standing near by a man whom he thought he recognized. " 'Since our delegation nominated Roosevelt everything is going our way with a Whoop,' he said, stepping up to his supposed interrogator, his face wreathed in smiles. " 'Who is Roosevelt?' the parrot in quired. The man Grimes addressed was standing between him and Polly's cage, so that the latter was hidden from the view of the Kansas treasurer. " 'Who is Roosevelt?' Grimes replied in astonishment. 'Haven't you ever heard of Teddy, the man J. R. Burton forced to accept the vice presidential nomination on the Republican ticket? Who are you, and where are you from, anyway?' he concluded, for he now saw that the man he thought he knew he didn't know at all. " 'Guess you'd better answer the par rot, replied the stranger with a grin. stepping aside so that Grimes could see the bird. " 'That's a funny-looking fellow,' said the parrot when it saw Grimes. "But Mr. Grimes didn't hear. He was hurrying away with a crestfallen countenance. He had missed an op portunity of telling how the Kansas del egation had been the original Roosevelt men at the convention and how Burton stood right next to him. He didn't re cover his equilibrium until he had drunk two lemonades. Buys a Whole Block. Coffeyvllle, June 30. Arthur R.

"Finally I gave up and thought I would wait for my end. One day I happened to pick up one of your books. I read of other women who were near death and had been cured by Peruna, so I thought I would try it. I took a couple of bottles and began to feel better.
