V AH Country Banks NEW YORK, Sept ' 21.-A ruling of great interest to country banks was laid down here today by Lawrence O. Mur ray, comptroller of the currency, in an address delivered to a gathering .of na tional bank examiners. On and after Oc tober 1, he said, he desired that at the examination of all country banks the board of directors shall be convened and the examination of assets made In their presence.- ; ' - ' ' The comptroller cautioned the examin ers to inquire very- carefully Into . any undue concentration . of the loans of a bank in companies' controlled by' the bank's officers or directors." , I speak now," he continued, "of any bank where such a concentration would ruin the bank If the loans are bad. When ever you come across a ease where the directors or officers are Unduly cdncen- tratlng the funds of a bank in corpora tions controlled by themselves, and where you have no information on which to base an opinion as to whether the loans are good or bad, It seems to me you are clearly entitled to one of .three things: First, that the books of the corporations be voluntarily opened to you, or, second, that the directors give you a full state ment in detail of the business of the con cerns; or, third, that a copy be given you of a report on the company or corpora tion made by an Independent auditor." Mr. Murray complimented the examiners for their work, but added that "we must Improve It materially." He said he considered the country ex aminer, is often overworked - and under paid, but nevertheless he Insisted Vthat the time given to examining : country banks be materially lengthened."

They started o"t with the proposition that they were going to make great economies, but when the final ac count was made up It was found that 'the 'econom'es" crippled all those branches of the government where there were na votes and . the extravagances In which they freely indulged were poured out lavishly where It was thought that large sums from the traf sury would result In se curing support at the po'ls. The economies and extravagances alike lyere determined not by the interests of the government oi the people, but in every case by the hopt of votes." ' ., - The speaker asserted ' that the actions of the democratic legislators had crippled the State department to effect a saving of $99,000; that they selected this year, when Mexico Is in a fitment of revo lution, to cut off five cAvalry regiments from the army; that their economy had caused this country to drop from second to third place among the navies of the world, with the Panama canal on the point of being "opened and that their civil service legislation threatened the dis organization of the service.
