Dollars, Discovered Negligent in Filing Bonds With Sfec relary of State-Producers News Brings Matter to tion or Governor Erickson for Rectification—How Skelton Evaded Lawsuits. State Superintendent of Banks, Who Supervises Millions of GOVERNOR CAN REQUIRE FILING OF BONDS Ever since the Bankers Association boldly put their hired attorney on the Bank Code Commission, created by the recent Montana legislature, osten sibly for the purpose of passing bank ing laws, and thereby sabotaging any attempt to pass laws for the protec tion of the people, the actions of the bankers and their satellites have been closely watched in Helena, most secret moves are daily reported to a powerful organization now op eating for the protection of the pub lic against the dark forces cf the state. Bank Examiner Supervises Millions of Dollars Their This organization last week report ed to the Producers News that Mr. Larson, who was appointed State Ex aminer and Superintendent of Banks, has not filed any bonds with the Sec retary of State for either office, the State Examiner supervises and sometimes handles many millions of State and County funds as well as has control of many millions more in banks, ( his failure to file bonds is a matter of serious import. Mr. Skel ton, the last Superintendent of Banks filed bonds as State Examiner, but he and Governor Dixon evaded the law requiring him to file bonds as Bank Examiner. He was thus able to cape many suits which could be insti tuted against him fo failing to prop erly supervise banks and to save the depositors of the state many millions of dollars due to the criminal negli gence, or worse, of himself and Ids many highly paid subordinates. May Be Honest but Should Be Bonded Little is known of Mr. Larson ex cept that he acted in some clerical capacity in a bank controlled by Tom Marlow, the cleverest dark alley po litical financial manipulator in Mon tana. Although he has not long been a resident of the state he may be hon est and efficient, but there are not wanting several who had sorrowful experiences with banks during the past four years who think he should be bonded to the limit the law allows. Letter to the Governor It is possible Governor Erickson has overlooked this matter and for that reason it is brought to his attention in the following letter addressed to mm by the Poducers News this week: „ T _ August 16, 1925. Hon. J. E. Erickson, Office of the Governor, Helena, Mont, Sir: As es We respectfully ask your atten tion to a subject which, we be , Jieve, was culpably neglected dur ing the preceding administration, namely, the bonding in the pub » * m n ^ Sfat ® Söfterin tendent of Banks. ra ^tfaqo iry we learn from from the Secretary of State that the present Superintendent 1c interest of of Banks has filed no bond either as State Examiner, or as State Su perintendent of Banks, whereas, under Section 6070 of the Code, "if required by the governor" he shall file a bond of not to exceed $75,000 conditioned for the faith ful discharge of his duties in the special capacity of Superinten dent of Banks. We know of no reason why the preceding executive permitted Mr. L. Q. Skelton to handle many millions of dollars of the people's money, and in addition, to stand arbiter of the stewardship over many other millions in banks not closed, with not a dollar's worth of security for any default of of ficial duty. This condition cohtin- * ued for four years, and there are not wanting in most of the com munities where there have been failed banks those who declare that insolvent banks were crimi nally allowed to keep their doors open, and in other instances that officers of failed banks—usually cashiers—have been installed by the nomination of the State Su perintendent as receivers, and thus enabled to destroy the evi dence of any crimes they have committed, torious was the instance of Mr. Skelton being himself a director of a bank which had possibly the most disastrous, criminal and scandalous insolvency of all—the Banking Corporation of Montana —while a sworn public officer with the duty to superintend and guard the public against the de linquencies of such directors. He was at once the wolf and the shepherd. Yet even after his ïn dictment for felony, not only was he not removed from office, but was not so much as asked by the then governor to furnish a bond for his remaining two or three years of incumbency. We know nothing of the pres ent incumbent except that he is your appointee. But we feel that you will take it in good part, and even welcome the suggestion as a possible protection of yourself from criticism in the future, thaf we urge, in behalf of a commu» mty that has sorely suffered from wildcat and criminal banking and from maladministration by tho personnel of the «tote m»K department, th* the full *•» * ' - requiring of nrMAnt ci** ,ü0 2 bond from the K" 1 ^'^Superintendent of Banks, in addition to his bond state examiner.
