I never carried out any /papers or anything like that, or closed jansr deals to vour Icnewledam? The testimony of the state's own witnesses furnished strong circum stantial evidence to indicate that Brinton told the truth in his state ment before the Investigating oom mdttee of the .house of representatives last winter to the effect-that It was the policy of the Bank of North Da kota to supply the Scandinavian* American Bank of Fargo with funds to loan to other Nonpartisan league enterprises. By cross examination, of Nels J. Brevig, assistant cashier of the Scan the dlnavlan-Ameriean Bank of Fargo, Arthur LeSueur, attorney for Brinton made Brertg admit that. Brevlg's AdoMoa On Aug- XS. 1*10. one month after the Bank of North Dakota had been opened, the Scandinavi an-American Bank ot Fargo had reoeived redepoalts of public money aanonntbe to shoot $S£S, 000. Ttels money "helped" materi ally in making loans to League enterprises which early In Octo ber. 1919, totalled about $4SO,000, although paH of these loans were made prior to the opening of the Bank of North Dakota. These loans were made on ac commodation notes In order that It will not appear on the hooks of the Scandinavian-American hank that the law. which pro hibits loaning to any person or corporation more than 15 per oent of the bank's capital had been violated. The Leagu# Exchange, F. B. Wood and his family, and Porter Kimball own 212 of the 500 Shares outstanding In the Scan dinavian-American bank. Questioned By IjeSueur Q. Mr. LeBueur: Why did those in dividuals sign those notes when the credit was extended to the United Stores Co. Tou didn't rely on them to pay them, did you, as being your main security or anything like that? A. Mr. Brevlg: Well, couldn't an swer that I didn't hive, anything to do with that part of It. Q. Don't you know as a matter of fact that there'is a law in the state of North Dakota that.provides a limit to loans which shall be made to any one individual or one concern you know that? A. Tes. Q. As a cashier of a bank? A. Tes sir. Q. Now is it not true: all we want is the facts, that these individuals sign th9se notes so that it will appear on these books that the law had not been violated when in fact those cor porations got all of these credits amounting to thousands and thousands, of dollars of excess loans, isn't that true? A. I suppose It is. One of the most striking features of Brevlg's testimony was his admission relative to the accommodation pa pe+s. The official transcript of this follows': Bank's Minutes Quoted Another Interesting feature of the afternoon canter* when Mr. LeSueur forced Mr. Brevig to read from the official minutes of a meeting of the directors of the Scandidavian-Ameri can bank held on July 28. 1919. in which the directors instructed H. J. Hagen, president, to arrange for the rediscount of $350,090 worth of paper of the Nonpartisan league and other league enterprises with the Bank of North Dakota, and also voted that Since the league had better facilities for floating its paper the amount to be carried by the Scandinavian-Amer ican bank be limited to $100,000. The court session was filled with sensations, oractically all of .them be Ing furnished by the testimony of the state's own witness under Mr. Le suaiur's cross examination. This began during the morning .session when Mr. IjeSueur forced Mr. Bwsvlg, who had teen put on the witness stand by the state to identify the records of the Scandinavian-American bank, to admit on July 28. 1919, the day the Bank of North Dakota opened, the Scandinavian-Ameri can bank had loaned S25,000 to league enterprises on aceoamodtet tion paper, and that on Angnst 5, 1B19, over $49,000 more had been loaned to the Nonpartisan league Itself on the same kind of accom modation notes. The same line of questioning was continued during the afternoon session the records of the Scandinavian-Amer ican bank being used to show that the loans. to the league enterprises were being steadily increased during ths months following the opening of the Bank of Xcfrth (Dakota. Conrumers" Stores Got About 9119,000 The total of loans to the Consum ers' United Stores Co.. alone was In the neighborhood of $116,000. "You could not have made this large amount of loans to the league enter prises In the early fall of 1919 if it had not been for the Bank of North Dakota, "could you?" demanded, Mr. LeSueur. "Well, it helped," replied Mr. Bre vlg. From a eonSUerattoii of the loans whlcb had been made by the Scandinavian-American bank, Mr. LeSueur turned to a ooisld orstion of the ownership of that institution, and from a stock book nrodooed at his command,, Mr. Brevlg showed that the league Exchange was the owner of lil shares of stock therein- F. B. Wood, five shares H. B- Wood, 10 shares Mrs. Flora 6. Wood, 6 shares, and Porter Kimball, 25. shares. 1 In connection with the ownership question. Mr. Brevig testified that J. J. Hastings, high finance expert of the Nonpartisan League, -became director and yjee president of the Scandinavian American bank in October, 1919, when he and Porter Kimball purchas ed some of the shares of President H. J. Hagen. This is In line with the testimony given by Brinton before the houseInvestigating 'committee last winter." Further investigation of Mr. Hast ings' purchase of stock in the' bank, was postponed until Tuesday morning at the request, of J. J. Weeks, special assistant attorney general, who asked for time to investigate the stock book with a view to a possible filing of ob jections to further investigations along this line. Mr. LeSueur Introduced in evidence several extracts' from minutes of meet ings of the boarl of directors of thc fjcarvdlnavian-American bank.x 1 -Si utmxe was tne man wno aid that as far as you know and Mr. Pad lock some times?
