Raleigh, Oct. 12. — Fly-by-night saiga
men are still trying to sell "blue sky"
and worthless stocks to people ta
North Carolina In spite eof hard
times, and some of them are succeed
ing In doing it, according to Com
missioner Stanley Winborne, in charge
of the securities division of the State
Corporation Commission. Not as many
complaints are being received now as
when times were better and money:
more plentiful.. But the get-rlch-quich
Wallingfords are still operating apd
finding those who are willing to take
a chance on questional stocks, Win
borne said.
Within the past few days a com
plaint has been received from Win

By CHARLES L. GOTTHABT, JR.
Chicago, Oct. 12—Twenty years were
required by Samuel Insull in the con
struction of the largest of the units
making up the huge public utility sy
stem which he created and then lost.
This is the Middle West Utilities
Company SI,OOO 000.000 holding com
pany controlling public utility proper
ties selling gas- electricity and other
service in 32 sthtes and parts of Can- j
a da.
Receivers* auditors already have |
spent five months in untangling the j
affairs o i the company, spread from ■
the Atlantic seaboard to Texas and
have not completed their task.
Maw of Operating Companies j
Thus far. they have devoted their at- j
tention only to the top holding com- j
pany and have made no attempt to j
nnrarvel the nrnae of interlockin' |
transactions between the parent com
pany and the 119 actual operating com
panies in the group.
Although the receivers have assur
ed stockholders there will be no bank
ruptcies in the Mid*J >o Wert system,
and that the group will sue reed under j
capable management, the stockhold- !
crs. i; appears will wa>. possibly years •
b‘-toic even a partial return can be
realised on their inveo,mcn*.
Samuel Instill, it is reported, Was
lelk wd of his connect.Mi with the
-Millie West receivership when it be
"an.e known that he signed vouchers
for nioney to be used by his brother
Mar. in. president of company, in ,
s importing the latter's speculative
transactions in the stock maiket .
Large Sam Borrower!
This is only one of the many develop ,
merits coming under the Attention of
■ e receivers. Another was the alle
gation that Marshall E. Sampson, 1
high executive* in the group, h id bor- J
rowed $400,000 of stock from the
company, giving only his T. O. U. as

department of the Corporation Com
mission, Mr. WJnbome said.
"This stock may be perfectly good
and the salesmen may be entirely
sincere In selling it,” Mr. Wlnborne
said. “Yet they are violating the law
since they are not licensed salesmen
and are selling stock that has not
been registered or approved. Conse
quently every person approached by a
stock or bond -salesman should de
mand at once to see his State license
and also determine whether or hot

was able to raise funds to finance his
\arious operations.
‘I his magic power to raise money
different periods aai enabled In
-a.l to squeeze out of tighi pieces on
many of facions and had hr not mis
ludged the length of „t;». present io
reasion it might hive saved him
r.„am. After the depression began
late hi 1929 he was able to raise sev
eral hundred millions through public
financing.
He raised $53,000,000 through the
sale of Insull tility Investments, In;,
debentures alome. In addition, he
got $24,000,000 through the marketing
of notes of the Corporation Securities
company. These are the two invest
ment trusts now in receivership.
Banks Continued Lending
Throughout 1930 the borrowings
continued and the public and bankers
evidenced their willingness to lend,
and bankers did not begin showing any
hesitancy to provide new funds until
late In 1930. As security for these
loans, stocks of the various Insull
companies were provided as collateral.
As the stock market continued to
fail, more securities went to the banks
for loans, and about all tSie stocks re
maining in Insull’s hands before the
leans were cut off were a miscellane
ous assortment of securities whose
market value was not readily aseer
tainable.
And as fast as Insull Was able to
obtain new funds, the money went
back Into tlhe stock market in an at
tempt to stem the greatest decline
the market ever has known.
Stockholders’ RmKHU Hopcte—
The claim* of the debenture holder*
of the tjwo investment cogipanles
amounted to a little less than $32,000.-
000. The.banks had loaned approxi
mately $W.0OO!OOO to the; companies,
and m return got practically all th«
assets. The position of: tfee-stockhold
ers is hopeless.
Now the question has be<f* raised
whether the banks had the right to
take all or nearly ali, of the. assets of
the firms to protect thoir-loans. It
was this consideration) whi<& led Fed

Use Mud To Level.

BT 4. €. BAtKEBVII.L
Raleigh, Oct. 11.—The State High
way Commission is planning to re
pair its concrete and asphalt roads
with mud. But this mud will be put
underneath the hard surface instead
of on top of it. Leslie R. Ames, chief
engineer, said *oday. In unrig mud
to repair and level out sunken places
in peved roads, a hole is drilled thro
ugh the pavement and the mud pump
ed underneath it. This forces the pave
ment up Into the proper position.
Equipment Engineer B. W. Davis
has juet returned from an inspection
trip to the western part of the State,
where he saw one of these mud re
pair outfits in operation by a main
tenance crew just across the South
Carolina line. Davis expects to built
a similar outfit at the State Highway
Commission equipment shops here.
“All we need is to mount a heavy
duty pump with an old Ford motor
to ru nit, on a truck and we will be
able to use the ‘mud treatment’ on
our roade,” Davis said. “The complete
outfit consists of the heavy duty pump
and hose, similar to fire department
hose, a concrete mixer to mix the mud
two trucks to haul the mud to the
mixer and a neumatic drill to drill the
.necessary holds in the concrete pave
rrtent. We alraedy have tfie drills,
mixers, trucks and other equipments,
*o alt we need to build is the pump.
We can do that for not more than
S2OO I am certain.”
