A bill providing for a natural sys
tem of farm land banks has been
introduced in congress.
This measure is tentatively the
administration bill for the establish
ment of a national rural credit sys
tem !t represents the results of the
labors of a United States commission
appointed by President Wilson last
April to investigate the rural credit
system in European countries and
report thereon.
The bill In the form Introduced
has not the unqualified indorsement
0 the house banking and currency
committee. It represents in the
main the views of the committee and
go far as the measure's general prin
ciples are concerned It has the ap
proval of President Wilson.
President Wilson has been positive
upon one point.in regard to a rural
credit system for the United States.
He is opposed to any scheme by
which the United States government
would become directly the creditor
of the farmer. This view is in en
tire accord with the views of the
majority members of the house com
mittee on banking and currency.
The bill, as introduced, provides
for the creation, operation and
supervision of a national farm loan
bank system through which the
farm land banks to be established
under the terms of the act, or to be
created through the federation of
existing state farm mortgage con
cerns and farmers' banks, shall be
come the new rural credit system of
the United States.
The bill provides for the organiza
tion under national charter of
national farm land banks by 10 or
more persons. All laws relating to
these banks are to be executed by the
commissioner of farm land banks,
who shall head a special bureau in
the treasury department.
The commissioner Is to be appoint
ed by the president with the advice
and consent of the senate, at a sal
ary of $6000 a year. There Is to be
a deputy commissioner, with a sal
ary of $3500.
Two Kinds of Bunks
The bill provides for the establish
ment of two kinds of farm land
Banks—co-operative and profit-mak
ing. If organized on the co-oper
ative plan it is provided that no
stockholder shall own more than 10
per cent of the share capital. The
dividends are limited to the pre
vailing interest rates of the commun
ity, any excess earnings to be dis
tributed among patrons of the bank
in proportion to the amount of busi
ness done with the bank.
Shares of stock in the co-operative
banks are to have a par value of $25
each., A minimum capitalization of
each bank is fixed at $10,000.
If the bank is not organized on
the co-operative plan a 0-year
charter is provided. The bank is to
have power to make contracts, to sue
and be sued, and to be under the
control of a board of directors hav
ing not fewer than five nor more
than nine members.
The specific powers given to land
banks are to accept and pay Inter
est on deposits not exceeding 50 per
cent of the paid up capital and sur
plus; to receive deposits of postal
savings funds; to make loans for not
more than 35 years maturity 'on
farm lands anywhere within the
state in which the bank operates,
provided that the farm loan shall not
exceed 50 per cent of the value or
improved farm lands or 40 per cent
of unimproved lands.
Every loan must be reduced by an
nual or semiannual payments on
the principal if the loan is made for
more that five years. The bank la
empowered to issue, sell and trade
In its own collateral trust bonds se
cured by first mortgages or first
deeds of trust. The interest on loans
may not exceed interest on bonds
by more than one per cent. As rap-
Idly as amortization payments are
made bonds are to be called in and
Paid or purchased in the open mar
ket and retired.
Bonds may not be issued by the
banks against mortgages running
1088 than five years. The capital
stock surplus and deposits may be
used temporarily for the purchase
of mortgages or bonds.
The banks are permitted to do a
general banking business, including
the purchase and sale of gold bul-
Hon, the collection of notes, draft 3
and bills of exchange, the discount
of commercial and other short time
Co-operative banks may carry on
for their stockholders all business
now permitted to national banks,
under rules and regulations pre
scribed by the commissioner.
No bank may issue bonds to ex
ed 15 times the amount of its
capital and surplus. The amortiza
tion payments must be sufficient to
ray interest charges, the administra
tion charges of the bank and to re
tire the entire obligation at its ma
No national farm land bank may
'end money on faith or credit or on
the assignment of Its own bank stock
° the stock of any other farm land
°ank. it may lend one Individual a
sum not exceeding 20 per cent of its
capital and surplus.
Profit Making Banks |
The shares of stock in the profit
making banks shall have _ par value
of $100, each stockholder being en
titled to one vote for each of his
shares. Double liability is made
mandatory with the provision that
stockholders may assume a largei
liability by a two-thirds vote. This
permission is intended to permit co
operative banks to improve their
credit by assuming, it: necessary, the
unlimited liability of German land
National land bank bonds are
made available as security for postal
savings funds, as legal Investments
for time deposits of national banks,
and as security for loans made by
national banks to national farm
land banks. National banks may so
lend money to the extent of 25 per
Cent of their capital and surplus or
one-third of their time deposits.
The value of farm lands on which
loans are to be made is to be deter
mined by an appraisement commit
tee composed of three members of
the board of directors and appointed
by that board.
National farm land banks are re
quired to maintain a reserve of five
per cent of time deposits and two
per cent on checking deposits. This
reserve may be held in cash or in
balances with other banks.
The banks are not permitted to
operate branches, but are allowed to
maintain loan agencies throughout
the state in which they operate. They
may maintain sales agents for the
sale of their bonds within the state
or outside it. This provision is ex
pected to permit the establishment
of many agencies in New York City.
Who Its For
To provide a systematic and abso
lutely safe plan for the investment of
savings, and to aid its members to
acquire homes of their own is the
object of the Pullman Savings and
Loan Association. The Association
is in every sense a Home institution.
It is for the Practical Man, who
realizing the uncertainties of busi
ness and of health, and of the folly of
spending all his money as fast as he
gets it, provides for an emergency.
It is for the Prudent Woman, who
out of her earnings or allowance, de
sires to put away a little money,
monthly, where it will be securely
and profitably invested, and give her
the least trouble and where she can
get it when needed.
It is for the Young Man possessing
the manhood and determination to
save something every month from
his earnings as a reserve fund, to
draw on when sick or out of a posi
tion, for providing a home or for a
start in business.
It is for Boys and Girls, to help
them to be economical and industri
ous and to encourage them to ac
quire the habit of saving, provide a
fund to educate them and to make
them independent.
It is for Societies, Fraternal and
Other Organizations wishing to in
vest their income for the p-rpose of
creating a reserve fund, or for build
It is for all Peeking a Home or
who want to improve their property,
or pay off a mortgage or to provide
a fund for any other worthy purpose.
