Adds Valuable Compil
ation to Work Done
WASHINGTON, Feb. 8.—The
banking laws of all the states and
territories of this country have been
summarized and compared in a re
markably clear and useful digest, is
sued today under the auspices of
the National Monetary commission as
another output of its exhaustive in
vestigation of banking and financial
operations and conditions in this and
other countries. This digest, practical
ly unique in scope, is the work of
Samuel A. Welldon, of the New York
bar, and in its preparation the com
piler has had the assistance of the
banking officials of most of the states
Although for practical reasons the
compilation has been sharply con
densed, it makes a volume of 750
pages, so comprehensive in its treat
ment of the varying laws of the sev
eral jurisdictions that it will prove
invaluable to all students of banking
and of bank legislation and will no
doubt be in great demand.
It has not been attempted to pre
sent anything but the substance of
the statutes, for the reason that a
digest dealing with their application
or interpretation would involve great
labor and fill an amount of space
greater than the commission thought
proper to give to the subject. The
digest deals with the general corpora
tion laws of the states (as distin
guished from the banking lawsl only
where they were peculiarly accessi
ble or the bank statutes left blanks
I which needed to be supplied. Provis
ions of the state laws dealing with
circulation are omitttd as being of
no practical value in view of the pres
ent control of circulation by the na
The statutes are systematized as
far as possible under the bead of each
state by division into three general
captions—banks, savings banks and
trust companies—but in some cases
material which applies to one or
more classes is presented under one
While it has been possible, where
the statutes went into elaborate de
tail, to give all their provisions in re
gard to minor matters, such as the
duties of state officials, legal proces
ses, form of pass books, and legal pro
ceedings for assessing stockholders,
references are given which enable a
competent attorney to turn quickly
to anything desired on these subjects.
One of the most valuable features
of the report, from the standpoint of
general research, is the summaries of
the legislation in each state govern
ing the principal subjects of banking
law, arranged in tabular form. There
is a table for commercial banks, one
for saving banks, and one for trust
companies. These tables set fourth
