How Interest Las*.
• -tll'lA. April ».—On June 11
nexl -111 jr.. Into effect the act pass
ed by the last legislature making
'. the legal rate at Interest In t bis
state t per rent, per annum on all
Interest-bearing documents, unless
a higher rat* Is specified In a written
contract, and then It cannot legally
exceed it per cent. The maximum
for state warrants la fixed at S per
tent, and that only In case a Irs*
rate Is not specified tn th* warrant-
I County, city, town anil school war-
I rants will draw « per cenl. unless a
!•-** rate Is Bpeclfled. It will be tin
ticed that all handlers of these ******
rants will have to accept them at
I whatever rate of Interest may he
specified on them aa long as th*
maximum i* not exceeded. Hut by
j f*r the mo*t arbitrary section Is the
IOS* which state. -It .'.ill b" th*
duty or every public officer Issuing
I public warranta to make monthly
I Investigation to ascertain the mar
ket value of the current warrants ll
sued by them, and he shall fix th*
rate of Interest on warrants Issued
by him during the coming month SB
that the par value (not exceeding
the maximum I***— prescribed)
shall In- th- market value thereof."
This practically places Ihe state
and county auditors In s poslllon
to dictate the amount of Interest
' i that warrants shall bear, which
' seemingly places vast powers In th*
' officials' hands.
