REPORT

THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.
DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY,
OFFICE OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY,
Washington, D. C, December 7,1891.

SIR : I have the honor to submit for the consideration of Congress?
in compliance with the provisions of section 333 of the Eevised Statutes
of the United States, the twenty-ninth annual report of the Comptroller
of the Currency.
The year covered by this report ended October 31, 1891. During
the larger part of this period severe depression was experienced in all
sections of the country, and business in its various forms was contracted in volume and unsatisfactory in results.
At the opening of the report year the stringency which characterized
the money market during the autumn of 1890 was at its height, its
most disastrous effects having been felt during the month of November.
A period of liquidation then set in which had hardly spent its force
when the bountiful harvest of 1891 brought much needed relief.
Notwithstanding the unfavorable conditions indicated, 193 new banks
were organized during the year, located in 41 States and Territories, and
possessing an aggregate capital of $20,700,000. The accessions are
numerically in excess of the average and have been exceeded in only
seven out of the twenty-nine years during which the system has been in
operation. During this twelvemonth 41 banks went into voluntary
liquidation and 25 became insolvent, leaving as a net gain for the report
year 127 associations, with a capital of $12,553,000, which is, as to number of banks, precisely the net average yearly increase during the life
of the system.
The number of banks now in operation is greater than at any former
period. There has been a satisfactory increase in the totals of capital
stock, surplus fund, and undivided profits, and this is also true of deposits, loans and discounts.
The number of banks in existence October 31, 1891, was 3,694, having in capital stock $684,755,865; bonds deposited to secure circulation,
$152,113,850; banknotes outstanding, $171,368,048, including $35,430,721 representing lawful money deposited to redeem circulation still
outstanding. The amount of circulation secured by the pledge of
United Stated boads has increased during the year $11,795,101.

It will be observed that Texas and Pennsylvania still stand at the
head of the list, as they have during the past two years, with 17 new
associations in each, Texas, however, having the larger capital. Following these come the States of Washington, Illinois, and Iowa with
11 banks each, and Nebraska and New York with 10 each. Kansas
jshows 9 new associations and ranks next to N£w York. It will be observed that notwithstanding the fatality attending banking operations
in Kansas and Nebraska these States take prominent places in point of
new organizations.
Of the associations entering the system during the year, 99, or slightly
more than one-half in number, are located west of the Mississippi River
and 59 in the Southern States.
Of the total number of banks in operation Pennsylvania has the greatest number of associations, Massachusetts the greatest aggregate capital,
and NewYork leads in amount of deposits.
The accessions to the system are widely distributed, both old and
new States being prominent in the list. It will be noticed, however,
that in proportion to population the increase is greater in the newer
States west of the Mississippi Eiver.
The following table exhibits the number of banks organized, failed,
and in voluntary liquidation, and the net increase numerically each year
since 1863:

*One bank restored to solvency, making 3,694 going banks.
t The total authorized capital stock on October 31 was $684,755,865; the paid-in capital,$683,248,175,
including the capital stock of liquidating and insolvent banks which have not deposited lawful money
for the retirement of their circulating notes.

The most notable feature of the foregoing table is the large number
of associations which have become insolvent during the year. They
aggregate 25 banks, with a capital of $3,662,000. The year 1873, however, appears to have been the most disastrous in point of capital, as
during that period the failure of 11 banks, with a capital of $3,825,000,
is recorded. The next in point of importance was 1877, when ten failures occurred, representing a capital of $3,344,000.
If we consider the relative proportions existing between the liabilities
of failed and active banks during various periods, it will be found that
seven years have been more disastrous than the one just closed, to wit:
1867,1872, 1873. 1877, 1878, 1882, and 1884. The liabilities of banks
closed on account of insolvency in each of these seven years constitutes
a larger percentage of the total liabilities of all existing banks than
is shown by the record of the year covered by this report.
Of the 25 failed banks, having an aggregate capital of $3,662,000,
13, representing $1,137,000 of capital, were located in Kansas and Nebraska.
The larger part of the failures in these two States were attributable
to four successive crop failures, and seem to be the result of unavoidable misfortunes rather than the lack of honest and efficient manage


6

merit. In many cases, however, the unfavorable conditions were greatly
aggravated by the collapse of unwise speculation in real estate, more
especially in city and suburban property.
The Comptroller endeavored by correspondence with various State
officers, receivers, and assignees to ascertain the number of failures of
banks and bankers other than national during the past twelve months,
but was unable to thus secure data upon which reliance could be
placed. He has been supplied, however, through the courtesy of a commercial agency,* with a list of failures in the United States of bankers,
brokers, trust companies, and savings banks for tha year ended June
30, 1891. These number in all 117 institutions, having liabilities estimated at $38,271,511, and assets valued at $20,794,092.
No reliable data in relation to the losses to creditors by reason of the
failure of banks other than national for recent years is accessible. In
order that a comparison may be made between the comparative safety
of national and State systems I am led to quote from the report of Hon,
John Jay Knox, then Comptroller of the Currency, for the year 1879,
where the subject is discussed. He says:
There is no means of definitely determining the amount of losses sustained through
the failures of banks operating under systems in vogue during the earlier periods of
the history of this country. The losses under those systems, both to the noteholders,
to whom there can be no loss under the national system, and to their general creditors and shareholders, are known to have been large. The loss to noteholders alone
is estimated to have been 5 per cent annually upon the total amount of circulation
outstanding. In Elliot's Funding System, on page 1176, it is stated that fifty-five
banks with an aggregate capital of $67,036,265 and circulation of $23,577,752, failed in
1841. The total bank capital of that year is stated by the same authority to have
been $317,642,692, and the circulation at $121,665,198; and it is also stated in the same
connection that in nearly every instance the entire capital of the banks which failed
was lost.
Numerous failures of private banking firms have occurred in this country within
the last six years, and the losses consequent upon three or four of them are equal to
the total losses which have occurred under the national system.
For the purpose of comparing the losses to creditors of insolvent national banks
with those sustained by the creditors of insolvent banks other than national, much
pains have been taken by the Comptroller to obtain as reliable and complete statistics as possible relating to the failures of State and savings banks and private bankers in the different States during the three years ending January 1,1879. The results
of his labors in this direction are to be found in the following table:

The amount of claims of five banks in Missouri, one in Kansas, and two in Nebraska could not be obtained.
In the foregoing table it lias been found impossible to give the capital, or the exact amount of dividends paid to creditors, the liabilities and the losses only having
been ascertained with any degree of accuracy. The differences between the two
items last named represent the amount which it is assumed will eventually bo paid
to creditors. The average annual loss sustained by creditors during the past sixteen
years by the insolvency of national banks throughout the United States has been
$390,012, and that occasioned by the failures of banks other than national, as shown
by the incomplete data obtained by the Comptroller, has for the last three years been
not less than $10,872,220.
In the States of Ohio and Illinois alone the losses during the last three years,
through the failure of State, savings, and private banks and bankers, aggregated
$8,039,102, of which $1,916,050 were in Ohio, and $6,123,052 in Illinois. The total losa
in these two States is greater by $1,798,913 than the total loss to creditors by all the
national bank failures which have ever occurred.

The failures for the current year have been numerous, many having
been characterized by gross mismanagement and some by criminality
of an aggravated character, yet nothing has been developed which indicates that the confidence in national banks on the part of the general
public, which is the outgrowth of an experience of twenty-nine years,
has been ill founded.
It is idle to suppose that absolute immunity from failure can be secured by the operation of any law which fails to provide for absolute and
complete governmental guaranty. That failures will be far more numerous during some years than others is to be expected. This is true of every
variety of business activity. The banks of the country are mere agencies through which the commercial and business operations of the people are conducted, and of necessity the losses which attend these operations are reflected in the profit and loss accounts of these agencies. The
net earnings of the banks afford a good criterion for judging as to the
measure of success which has attended the business operations of their
customers.
It is a well-known fact that periods of business activity and depression follow each other at reasonably well-defined intervals, and that no
means have been found for preventing the regular recurrence of what
were under other conditions, known as years of panic. There is no
doubt that the introduction of the national banking system and a
well-secured currency of uniform and certain value, has served to greatly
modify the severity of these periodical visitations and convert what
were formerly panics into more or less severe depressions. The latter
condition we have just experienced, and it is not remarkable that during the past twelve months while the country was suffering from a
monetary stringency which has seriously affected the entire commercial
world, we should have witnessed the failure of 25 banks out of a total
of 3,694.
That the law under which these associations operate is absolutely
perfect no one well informed will claim, but that it has afforded greater
security to its depositors and creditors than any other system is indisputable.
Since the foundation of the system 4,648 associations have been organized, of which 164 have become insolvent, equal to about 3 J per cent
for a period of twenty-nine years. Of this number the affairs of 102 have
been finally settled, representing $28,544,992 of proved claims, upon
which the claimants have received on an average 74.17 per cent, constituting a net loss to depositors of $7,372,036. The affairs of 62 banks are
still unsettled, representing claims proved to the amount of $29,247,036,
on which have been paid $17,456,167, leaving assets estimated at

$3,702,025 yet to be distributed, which would represent a loss to creditors
of $8,087,944.
It will bo observed that losses to creditors of national banks during
the twenty-nine years of the existence of the system, taking the amounts
ascertained and the amounts estimated, aggregate $15,459,980, or an
average of $533,103 per annum during the life of the system.
The average amount of liabilities of all the banks since 1863 approximates $1,055,434,022, indicating that the annual average loss to the
creditors of national banks for the period of twenty-nine years has been
only one-twentieth of 1 per cent.
In order to illustrate the increasing economy and efficiency which
has characterized the administration of insolvent banks by the Bureau,
the following table has been prepared, which covers all insolvent
associations whose affairs have been finally closed:

It will be observed that the banks have been classified into semidecades, haying regard to the date of insolvency. The conspicuous relative reduction in legal expenses is worthy of remark. The first semidecade shows an average disbursement for legal expenses of $4.03 on
each $100 collected, while the same item during the last semi-decade is
stated at only 81 cents.
The average expenses to each $100 of collections for receivers' salaries and all other expenses decreased from $9.13 during the first semidecade to $3.27 during the last. Taking into account all the expenses
of administration, we find that the cost per $100 during the last period
is $4.08, as against $13.16 during the first. A corresponding increase
in the percentage of dividends paid to the creditors of insolvent banks
is also to be noted.
During the first period, claimants received on the average 62.84 per
cent) during the last period 90.65 per cent, and for the entire life of
the system 74.17 per cent.
The increase in dividends and decrease in expenses go hand in
hand. The increase in rate per cent paid to creditors is due in part
to greater efficiency and economy in conducting the liquidations, and
partly to the fact that recent failures are less disastrous than in the
earlier years of the system. These results indicate that governmental
supervision is growing more effective as new and improved methods
are evolved from experience. Certainly no other system of liquidating
insolvent banks has ever proved so effective and economical; the record
of the pastfiveyears showing average dividends to creditors of 90.65 per
cent, and average expenses of only 4.08 per cent is in both respects
believed to be without a parallel.



REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OP THE CURRENCY.
AMENDMENTS TO PRESENT LAW.
The Comptroller desires to repeat in substance the recommendations
contained in his report for 1890.
In his opinion the present law should be so amended as to provide:
(1) That no association shall be required to maintain a bond deposit
of more than $1,000 to secure circulation.
(2) That every association may issue circulating notes equal to the
par value of the bonds so deposited.
(3) That the monthly withdrawal of bonds pledged to secure such
notes shall not exceed $3,000,000 in the aggregate.
(4) That the semi-annual duty ©n circulation be so reduced as to
equal one-fourth of 1 per cent j)er annum.
These recommendations are made upon the supposition that Congress
will not favorably consider measures looking to any considerable increase of circulation through further note issues by national banks.
While the Comptroller is of the opinion that bank notes possess certain
qualities not found in any form of governmental issues, but which are necessary to a perfect circulating medium, he is, nevertheless, aware that
the present is not an opportune time for presenting his views upon that
subject. He deems it wise to accept the situation, so far as note issues
are concerned, and ask for such legislation as will relieve national banks
so far as possible from the enforced and unremunerative issue of circulating notes, so that they may be unembarrassed in their efforts to
faithfully serve the public as banks of discount and deposit.
Inasmuch as the secured circulation of national banks has increased
$11,795,101 during the report year and is now much above the present
minimum requirement, no rapid contraction of circulation need be
apprehended.
The limitation provided in the third proposition would in any event
prevent a retirement beyond $3,000,000 per month. Such reduction
as might otherwise take place would be neutralized for five months at
least by the immediate additional issue of $15,211,385 under the second
proposition.
The reduction of the semi-annual duty is both just and expedient.
No adequate reason can be given for the taxation of a valueless and
unwelcome franchise for the purpose of swelling redundant revenues.
MONETARY STRINGENCY OF 1890.

The previous report year, which ended November 1,1890, showed a
comparatively small number of failures of national banking associations. Up to Midsummer of 1890 that year had been one of more than
average business activity. It was, however, apparent in the early
Spring, to those who were most observant of passing events, that unfavorable conditions existed, the evil effects of which would appear in the
near future. This arose from consideration of the fact that agricultural
interests were in an unsatisfactory condition, and also that overtrading
and unhealthful expansion were everywhere apparent. During the
year the building of railroads had been prosecuted with unusual vigor,
making necessary the placing of unusually large lines of securities.
Immense sums heretofore available as loanable capital in the New
England and Middle States had taken a fixed form by reason of invest


10

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

merits in the Mississippi Valley and upon the Pacific coast in city and
suburban property, in loans represented by farm mortgages, and in the
stocks and bonds of unnumbered corporations organized for the purpose of conducting various kinds of manufacturing operations, and supplying water, light, and rapid transit to the inhabitants of the many
rapidly growing cities and villages in the regions named. Not only
did these enterprises attract capital from the Atlantic States, but
English investors brought to this country vast sums for the purpose of
grouping together and recapitalizing corporations engaged in manufacturing, industrial, and commercial pursuits.
This unexampled movement of capital toward the West not only divested the Atlantic States in a large degree of the loanable funds heretofore available for the relief of those engaged there in manufacturing
and in business in its various forms, but it also had its effect upon the
West in unduly stimulating speculative operations in real estate and
laying the- groundwork for the future collapse in prices which it was
apparent must follow whenever the flow of money toward the field of
these operations should for any cause be greatly diminished or entirely
arrested.
The various banking institutions located in the region of country
affected by the speculative spirit thus incited became necessarily more
or less involved in the operations of their local customers. They found
themselves early in the Summer of 1890 carrying large lines of loans
representing investments in various forms of corporate enterprises,
which were in a large degree in untried fields and dependent for success
upon the rapid growth of towns and cities, yet unrealized. The banks
of the country were therefore in an unduly extended condition upon
the approach of Midsummer, and dependent in many cases upon* rediscounts with their correspondents in the reserve cities in order to
enable them to carry the heavy lines with which they were burdened.
While in this condition the transfer of funds to this country from England and the Continent became at first greatly reduced in volume, and
finally ceased. Not only was the supply of fresh funds from this source
.cut off, but it was discovered that during the late Spring and earlySummer months, as well as later on, vast amounts of American securities held abroad were forced upon the New York market by European
holders for the purpose of preparing for a collapse which was expected
to result from similar conditions of undue expansion existing abroad.
The Continental countries had already passed through a period of liquidation and loss consequent upon the failure of the Panama Canal Company and the French Copper Syndicate. England, by reason of unusually large investments in all parts of the world, and especially in the
Argentine Eepublic, was gradually but surely approaching an exceptionally severe monetary stringency.
As an evidence of this and the consequent disposition to increase the
stock of gold there held, in order to strengthen their cash resources, it
is noted that during the months of June, July, and August of last year
the net exportation from the United States of gold coin and bullion exceeded $14,000,000, and for the period extending from January 1,1890, to
August 31,1891, the net exportations of gold amounted to $75,405,613.
While these causes were operating to prevent the necessary relief from
reaching us from Europe, the demands upon the banks in New York
and other large reserve cities rapidly increased, producing a reduction
in the amount of deposits and an increase in the amounts loaned to and
rediseounted for the interior banks.



REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

The gross deposits of forty-six national banks in the city of New York
show a falling off of $44,831,356 between the 28th of February and 17th
of May, 1890; $13,519,527 of this representing a reduction in balances
due to interior banks and those located in other reserve cities, while
the reduction in loans and discounts was less than $10,000,000. The
New York banks, however, were enabled to so strengthen their positions during the months of June and July that the marked stringency
was delayed until August. It culminated about the middle of November, when the failure of a leading firm of brokers, the embarrassment of
one large State bank, and the failure of another occurred in New York.
These events were simultaneous with the announcement of the embarrassment of the Baring Brothers, of London, and the fact that a syndicate had been formed, headed by the Bank of England, through whose
agency Baring Brothers' obligations were guaranteed to the extent of
about $75,000,000.
The unsatisfactory condition of monetary affairs in England, and the
desire to be prepared for the effect of the announcement of the embarrassment of the Baring Brothers, induced the Bank of England to
borrow £3,000,000 in gold from the Bank of France, in addition to
£1,500,000 received from Eussia upon sale of treasury bonds. This
extraordinary transaction is an evidence of the serious character of
the monetary stringency in England, aggravated by the unsatisfactory
conditions apparent in almost every civilized country where English
capital has heretofore found investment.
Among the unfavorable conditions existing in our own country, in
addition to the undue expansion and resulting speculative investments
which have been heretofore noted, should be mentioned the greatly reduced yield last year of wheat, oats, and corn, and the low prices which
prevailed for the same. It is also to be observed that the importation
of foreign commodities in 1890 exceeded in value that of any previous
year. This was due, to some extent, to the passage of the new tariff
act, which was made to take effect on the 6th of October, 1890. This
undoubtedly greatly stimulated importations, in order that their arrival
prior to the date mentioned might enable them to escape the higher
rate of duty supposed to be imposed by the new act.
To relieve this severe monetary stringency the Secretary of the
Treasury increased his purchase of United States bonds to such an extent as to almost entirely exhaust the available surplus in the Treasury.
During the three and one-third months from July 19 to November 1,
1890, over $99,000,000 were disbursed in payment for United States
bonds and interest thereon. It is apparent, however, that while the
relief afforded was timely and the sums disbursed very large, the unfavorable and threatening conditions were caused to a greater degree
by want of confidence and a curtailment of credits than by lack of circulating medium. That this large disbursement had the effect of allaying excitement and promoting a return of confidence on the part of the
general public is no doubt true.
As has been noted, the monetary stringency culminated on the 15th
of November, 1890, and its effects within thirty days thereafter had to a
considerable extent passed away, so far as could be observed in the
larger cities. Its effect upon the country at large, however, still continued. ' Inability to place securities and to borrow money had arrested
the operations of a great multitude of corporations scattered all over the
country, and insolvency and failure had in a large number of cases ensued. Where failure did not take place new work was stopped, all



12

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

credits were curtailed, and business in its different forms became
greatly depressed. The growth of cities and villages was in many
cases arrested, and the prices of city property, especially of a suburban
character, became greatly reduced.
Corporations newly organized, with insufficient capital and inexperienced management, generally became insolvent, and speculative operations of every kind and character were prostrated. Liquidation took
place in all branches of business, resulting in the failure and extinction
of a large number of business enterprises which were never entitled to
credit and in the curtailment of the operations of many possessing ample capital and skillful management.
The process of liquidation above referred to did not end with the
monetary stringency in December, 1890, but has continued since that
date, and its influences are still felt and its effects observed. The subject is here discussed because of its intimate connection with the bank
failures of 1891.
CLEARING-HOUSE LOAN CERTIFICATES.

The effect of a general monetary stringency is felt first and most
seriously by banks located in the larger of the reserve cities. Whenever financial affairs are in a normal condition the surplus funds of the
local banks find their way to the vaults of their correspondent banks
located in the great centers of business activity. This is undoubtedly
due in part to the fact that these deposits may be made available
for lawful money reserve and that a small rate of interest is, as a rule,
X>aid upon bank balances by associations in the larger cities, and
to the further fact that the maintenance of a good balance with
their city correspondents strengthens the claim of the interior banks
upon the former for rediscounts when the temporary condition, of
redundancy passes away and the increased demand for money is
greater than the interior banks from their resources can conveniently
supply.
Tlius it results that the wants of a continent in case of general depression are at last brought through various channels of business
activity, by way of withdrawals or loans, to the bankers of the great
metropolitan cities for relief, and they are presented in such a form, in
many cases, as to preclude the possibility of refusal, if general bankruptcy is to be avoided.
During the period of the stringency above discussed the cities of
New York, Philadelphia, and Boston were subjected to the most pressing demands, amd after very careful consideration it was decided by
the associated banks that the exigency made necessary a resort to the
issuing of clearing-house loan certificates, for the purpose of settling
clearing-house balances. This expedient had been successfully resorted
to during the panics of 1873 and 1884.
At a meeting of the New York Clearing-House Association on the
11th day of November, 1890, the following resolution was unanimously
adopted:
Resolved, That a committee of five be appointed by the chair, of which the
chairman shall be one, to receive from banks members of the association bills receivable and other securities, to be approved by said committee, who shall be authorized to issue therefor, to such depositing banks, loan certificates bearing interest at 6 per cent per annum, and in addition thereto a commission of one-quarter of
1 cent for every thirty days such certificates shall remain unpaid, and such loan
certificates shall not be in excess of 75 per cent of the market value of the securities of bills receivable so deposited, and such certificates shall be received and paid
in settlement of balances at the clearing house.

Committee.

These certificates were, by unanimous agreement upon the part ot
the clearing-house banks, accepted in lieu of money in the settlement
of clearing-house balances.
In order to provide for the retirement of these securities in case the
collaterals pledged were found insufficient, the several boards of directors
of the associated banks were requested to, and did, pass a resolution
in the following form:
Resolved, That any loss resulting from the issue of loan certificates shall be borne
by the banks comprising the Clearing-House Association pro rata of capital and surplus, and this resolution shall be ratified by the boards of the respective banks,
members of the association, and a certified copy of such consent delivered to the
chairman of the loan committee.

This committee, acting under the authority granted by the above resolution, issued to the associated banks loan certificates aggregating
$16,645,000. The first issue was made November 12, 1890, and the
entire issue was retired on February 7, 1891. The largest amount outstanding at any one time was $15,205,000, on the 13th of December, 1890.
On the 17th of November, 1890, similar proceedings were had by the
Boston Glearing-House Association. On that day, at a meeting of the
association, the following resolution was unanimously adopted:
Resolved, That a committee of five be appointed by the chair, of which committee
the chairman shall also be a member, to receive from banks, members of the association, bills receivable and other securities, to be approved by said committee, who
shall be authorized to issue therefor, to such depositing banks, loan certificates
bearing interest at 7.3 per cent per annum, and such loan certificate shall not be in
excess of 75 per cent of the market value of the securities or bills receivable so deposited, and such certificates shall be received and paid in settlement of balances
at the clearing house.

It is observed also that the ultimate payment of the certificates, in
case the pledged collaterals proved to be insufficient, was provided for
through the ratification, by the boards of directors of the respective
banks, of the following resolution passed by the Boston Olearing-House
Association at the meeting above noted:
Resolved, That any loss arising from the issue of loan certificates shall be borne by
the banks comprising the Clearing-House Association pro rata, according to the
average daily amount which each bank shall have sent to the clearing house during
the preceding year. It was also voted that this resolution shall be ratified by the
boards of directors of the respective banks, members of the association, and a certified copy of such consent delivered to the chairman of the loan committee^

Committee.

When a bank applied for and received loan certificates it was required to deposit the necessary securities and to also execute and deliver
an obligation, of which the following is a copy:
The
Bank has this day received of,
, loan committee of the Boston
Clearing-House Association loan certificates issued by said committee in pursuance
of a vote of said association, passed November 17, 1890, to the amount of
thousand dollars, and has deposited with said committee the securities, a statement
whereof is hereto annexed, and said
Bank receives said loan certificates on the terms set forth in said vote, and agrees to pay the amount of said certificates, with interest thereon, as provided in said vote.

Under the operation of the resolution of authority granted by the
clearing-house committee, as above noted, loan certificates were first
issued on November 19, 1890, and the- last were issued on December 6,
1890. On the latter date the issue reached its maximum of $5,065,000.
The last of the issue was retired on January 6, 1891.
The Clearing-House Association of Philadelphia took action on November 18, 1890, at which time, at a meeting of the Clearing-House
Association, the following resolution was adopted:
Besolved, That, in accordance with resolution of September 24, 1873, as amended
October 18, 1873, the clearing-house committee will issue loan certificates to banks
applying and receive them in payment of balances.

The resolution of September 24,1873, as amended October 18, 1873,
reads as follows:
For the purpose of enabling the banks, members of the Philadelphia ClearingHouse Association, to afford proper assistance to the mercantile and manufacturing
community, and also to facilitate the inter-bank settlements resulting from their
daily exchanges, we, the undersigned, do bind ourselves by the following agreement on the part of our respective banks, viz:
First. That the clearing-house committee be, and they are hereby, authorized
to issue to any bank member of the association loan certificates bearing 6 per cent
interest on the deposits of bills receivable and other securities to such an amount
and to such percentage thereof as may in their judgment be advisable.
These certificates may be used in settlement of balances at the clearing hous e,
and they shall be received by creditor banks in the same proportion as they bear to
the aggregate amount of the debtor balances paid at the clearing house. The
interest that may accrue upon these certificates shall be apportioned monthly among
the banks which shall have held them during that time.
Second. The securities deposited with the said committee shall be held by them
in trust as a special deposit, pledged for the redemption of the certificates issued
thereupon, the same being accepted by the committee as collateral security, with
the express condition that neither the Clearing-House Association, the clearinghouse committee, nor any member thereof shall be responsible for any loss on said
collaterals arising from failure to make demand and protest, or from any other neglect or omission, other than the refusal to take some reasonable step which the said
1
depositing
 bank may have previously reojuired in writing.

Third. On the surrender of such certificates; or any of them, "by the depositing hank,
the committee will indorse the amount as a payment on the obligation of said hank
held by them, and will surrender a proportionate amount of securities, except in case
of default of the bank in any of its transactions through the clearing house; in
which case the securities will be applied by the committee, first, to the payment of
outstanding certificates, with interest; next, to the liquidation of any indebtedness
of such bank to the other banks, members of the Clearing-House Association.
Fourth. The committee shall be authorized to exchange any portion of said securities for others, to be approved by them, and shall have power to demand additional
security, at their own discretion.
Fifth. That the clearing-house committee be authorized to carry into full effect
this agreement, with power to establish such rules and regulations for the practical
working thereof as they may deem necessary; and any loss caused by the non-payment of loan certificates shall be assessed by the committee upon all the banks in
the ratio of capital.
Sixth. The expenses incurred in carrying out this agreement shall be assessed
uj)on the banks in equal proportion to their respective capital.
Seventh. That the clearing-house committee be, and they are hereby, authorized
to terminate this agreement upon giving thirty days' notice thereof at any stated
meeting of tne Clearing-House Association.
PHILADELPHIA, November 18, 1890.

At a meeting of the clearing-house committee, held this day, it was, on motion:
Resolved, That in accordance with resolutions of September 24, 1873, as amended
October 18, 1873, the clearing-house committee will issue loan certificates to banks
applying, and receive them in payment of balances.

H said agreement and of any renewals of the same, in payment of balances at the
c§ clearing house, for the sum of five thousand dollars, only from a member of the

Committee.

It will be observed that the original agreement under which the committee proceeded in this case was adopted during the panic of 1873
and after that subsided no further action was had under it until November, 1890, but the machinery was kept standing during the whole intervening period ready for immediate use whenever required.
The clearing-house committee having, by the agreement aforesaid,
been authorized to issue loan certificates resolved, on November 5? 1890,
to exercise this power, whereupon the banks desiring to take out loan
certificates were required to adopt a resolution empowering the hypothecation of securities, under which the issue of loan certificates, signed
by not less than three members of the committee, was commenced on
November 19, 1890, and ceased on May 22, 1891, the total issue being
$9,655,000. The maximum issue, $8,870,000, was reached on January
9. The certificates have all been retired excepting $170,000 issued to
the Keystone and Spring Garden National Banks.

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.
DOMESTIC EXCHANGES.

In his annual report for 1890 tlie Comptroller published certain data
in relation to domestic exchanges in the United States, which exhibited
the amounts of drafts drawn during the year ended June 30, 1890, (1)
upon national and other banks in the cities of New "York, Chicago, and
St. Louis, separately stated; (2) upon banks located in other reserve
cities, and (3) upon all other banks.
Out of the 3,438 national banks in operation on the 30th day of June,
1890, 3,329 furnished the desired information. While the facts thus
elicited attracted wide attention and proVed valuable as illustrating
the magnitude of the transactions liquidated through transfers of bank
credits, it fell short of all that might be desired from the fact that drafts
drawn upon reserve cities other than New York, Chicago, and St. Louis
were not separately stated but were given in the aggregate only.
It was thought desirable to again call for this information for the
purpose of instituting comparisons as between the operations of the
two years, and also for the purpose of ascertaining the magnitude of
the transactions with each of the reserve cities, to the end that similar
calls following this at suitable intervals rnigUt afford the means of ascertaining the relative growth of the banking operations of the several reserve cities of the United States. For this purpose circular letters were addressed to each active bank in the system, and replies were
received from 3,637, that being the number in operation on the 30th
day of June, 1891, exclusive of 22 associations that drew no exchange.
This cheerful cooperation on the part of every bank in the system is
worthy of special commendation, as last year 109 banks failed to make
the necessary report.
In comparisons made between the operations of the year ended June
30, 1890, and the year ended June 30, 1891, it will be remembered that
the former year covered the operations of 3,329 banks, and the latter
year 3,637 banks. The total amount of drafts drawn by these 3,637
associations during the year ended June 30, 1891, was $12,782,212,49*5.
Wefindthat of this amount there was drawn on New York $7,836,208,250,
on Chicago $1,254,693,941, on St. Louis $237,908,010, and on other
reserve cities $3,101,005,735, and on all other banks and bankers
$352,396,559.
Among the other reserve cities Boston leads with $1,492,266,242,
followed by Philadelphia with $541,333,403.
From this statement it appears that of the total sum 61.31 per cent
was drawn on banks in the city of New York; 9.82 per cent on Chicago;
1.86 per cent on St. Louis; 11.61 per cent on Boston, and 4.24 per cent
on Philadelphia. The total sum drawn upon the reserve cities, excepting New York, Chicago, and St. Louis, was 24.25 per cent and 2.76 per
cent on banks located elsewhere.

*The total amount of drafts drawn upon other reserve cities (not shown in detail in 1890) is
$3,101,005,735 and the percentage 24.25.

In order to facilitate a comparison between the operations of the year
ended June 30* 1890, and those of the year ended June 30, 1891, the
totals and percentages for the former year are included in the table.
It will be observed that in the total amount of drafts drawn there has
been an increase in each of the three central reserve cities and in the
amounts drawn upon all other reserve cities, but that the total of drafts
drawn upon all other banks has fallen off to a marked degree.
It will be noticed that the grand aggregate for all banks shows an
increase of $1,231,314,240, being slightly in excess of 11 per cent. So
far as the percentages show the relative importance of the.several
reserve cities the changes do not appear important. New York City,
relatively, has slightly fallen off wjiile Chicago and St. Louis each show
a slight increase in percentages. Other reserve cities have increased
from 21.88 to 24.25 per cent, indicating the growing importance of the
business tributary to the inland cities.

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

JSTotwithstanding that the total amount of drafts drawn by the national banks of the United States during the year ended June 30,1891,
shows a satisfactory increase over the operations of the year immediately preceding that under consideration, it should be remembered that
the year ended June 30, 1891, has been one of great depression on account of the monetary stringency which prevailed for the greater
part of that period, and the consequent liquidations which have been
in progress. While by far the larger part of the banking business is
conducted through associations belonging to the national system, it is
necessary to take into consideration the operations of banks other than
national in order to arrive at a proper estimate of the magnitude of the
business liquidated through the agency of the banking institutions of
the country.
In the collection of statistics required by the statute the Comptroller
has this year received reports from 4,342 corporations or firms other
than national banks which do a commercial banking business, in whole
or in part. Of these 2,572 are State banks, 171 loan and trust companies, 364 are savings banks having capital stock, and 1,235 are private bankers. These represent a capital of $356,749,315. If the
domestic exchange drawn by these banking institutions bears the same
relation to their capital stock as in the case of national banks, it will
be found that the amount of drafts drawn by banks and bankers other
than national will amount to $6,743,157,040.
In order to arrive at the grand total of domestic exchange drawn by
all the banks and bankers of the United States the following statement
has been prepared, exhibiting the amounts of drafts drawn by—
3,637 national banks, official
4,342 State banks, private banks, etc
Total

$12,782,212,495
6,743,157,040
19,525,369,535

As there are many banks other than national that do not report to
the Comptroller of the Currency, with regard to which no statistics
are accessible, it is probable that the amount estimated as drawn by
these institutions in the above table is understated.
The magnitude of the operations thus indicated illustrates how indispensable banks are to the safe and economical conduct of the business
of the country. This immense total of nearly $20,000,000,000 represents
simply the net balances between various localities adjusted through
the agency of banks, and bears a very small proportion to the gross
transactions which are taking place between the banks and their customers. Some idea can be formed of the magnitude of the total transactions of national banks by consideration of the fact that on the first
day of July, 1890, the receipts by 3,364 national banks of the United
States aggregated $421,824,726. If we take $421,000,000 as the average daily transactions of the national banks, and multiply this by 307
as the number of business days in the year, it will be found that the
total receipts of these banks for a single year would amount to
$129,247,000,000, or a sum greatly in excess of the estimated value of
all the real and personal property of Great Britain and the United
States combined.
When we come to realize with what economy and safety this immense
business is transacted the importance of perpetuating and perfecting
the national banking system can not fail to command attention.
In another part of this report will be found a statement of the average annual losses by reason of the failure of national banks. When

this comparatively small loss is placed against the immense transactions which have taken place through these agencies the conspicuous
fidelity of the associations constituting the system must be recognized
by every impartial observer.
EXAMINATIONS.

The national-bank act was perfected writh great care, and in its provisions were embodied all those salutary restraints which previous legislation and the banking experience of the world for many centuries
had demonstrated to be conducive to the safe and successful conduct
of banks'lorganized for commercial business. The wisdom of those who
were responsible for its preparation has been vindicated by the unexampled success which has attended banks organized under it during
the past twenty-nine years. No system has ever issued notes circulating at par over so wide an area of country, absolutely without loss to
holders; nor has any other afforded such complete security to depositors and creditors.
The administration of this act was committed to a Bureau of which
the Comptroller of the Currency is the chief officer, and all the provisions incident to the organization, supervision, and closing of associations are designed to be executed through the operation of the agency
so created. The duties of the Comptroller of the Currency, as the
chief executive officer, are set forth with great clearness and particularity. So far as the proceedings incident to the organization of new
associations are concerned, up to and including the certificate authorizing them to begin business, they are so conducted as to make it possible
for the Comptroller to personally supervise the details and see that the
law is obeyed.
It is impossible, however, for him to personally visit the various associations after organization is completed and ascertain for himself that
the conduct of their affairs is in every particular in conformity with
law. His information in relation to matters incident to the internal
management of a bank reaches him through two channels. First,
through what are known as " reports of condition," which are required
to be made by each association, upon call of the Comptroller, for some
past date, at least five times a year, and, secondly, through reports
made by national-bank examiners. Eeports of condition are made
upon the oath or affirmation of the president or cashier, attested by at
least three directors, and are required to be published in some newspaper issued in the locality where the bank is situated.
The report prepared in these cases is substantially a trial balance
from the general ledger, under such classifications as the Comptroller
directs, showing in detail the entire resources of the association upon
the one Land, and its entire liabilities upon the other. If. correctly and
honestly made, these published reports afford to the shareholders and
creditors of the association an opportunity to form a reasonably correct
judgment as to its solvency, its earnings, and the value of its shares.
Certain schedules accompany these reports, which are designed to
disclose such facts as will indicate whether or not any provision of
the national-bank act has been violated. This system of reports,
especially so far as it applies to banks under honest management, is no
doubt to a certain degree effective in preventing unwise and unlawful
acts on the part of those directly charged with the management.
As severe penalties are imposed upon any officer or employ £ who
makes or aids or abets others in making any false report or statement



REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

25

of the association with, intent to defraud or deceive, even those whose
honesty may be brought in question are constrained through fear to
make truthful reports. It sometimes occurs, however, that banks fall
under the management of those who are utterly wanting in integrity
and are undeterred by the penalties of the law. Occasionally the
active officers of the bank enter into such collusion as renders it comparatively safe, in their opinion, to make reports which are designed
to cover up unlawful practices, and to either overstate the value of the
bank's resources, or understate its liabilities, so that the published reX>ort thus made serves to grossly deceive those for whose benefit the
publication has been wisely ordered.
As banks under honest management are usually conducted in obedience to law, it is clear that the value of governmental supervision is determined by the success it may achieve in ascertaining facts hidden from
view by bank managers whose purpose it is to keep from the knowledge
of the Comptroller conditions which might involve impairment of capital,
insolvency, or criminality. The agency provided by law for ascertaining with greater certainty the condition of these associations is through
the periodical visits of examiners appointed for the purpose.
The authority for the appointment of national-bank examiners is
found in section 5240 of the Eevised Statutes of the United States,
wherein it is provided that—
The Comptroller, with the approval of the Secretary of the Treasury, shall, as
often as shall be deemed necessary or proper, appoint a suitable person or persons
to make an examination of the affairs of every banking association, who shall have
power to make a thorough examination into all the affairs of the association, and,
in doing so, to examine any of the officers and agents thereof on oath; and shall
make a full and detailed report of the condition of the association to the Comptroller.

This brief paragraph contains the only provision of law for the appointment of national-bank examiners, and is the only place where
his rights, powers, and duties are set forth. It is apparent that
these examiners were to be the confidential agents of the Comptroller,
and as such to have such duties and to exercise such powers, within
the law, as the Comptroller might from time to time direct.
As has been said, these examiners have always been regarded as the
confidential agents of the Comptroller, and the various communications
and reports transmitted by them to him have always been considered
as confidential and privileged.
The relations existing between the Comptroller and his examiners
is of such a character that they must necessarily possess his entire
confidence. Any information which might lead him to entertain a reasonable doubt as to the skill or integrity of an examiner would make
it his duty to immediately suspend him, even though the information
might be of such a character as could not be substantiated by competent proof, or of such a confidential nature as would make it necessary for the Comptroller, to withhold the character of the charges from
the examiner himself. The Comptroller would be derelict in duty who
would continue to employ the services of an examiner who had so conducted himself as to impair that complete confidence which must from
the necessities of the case exist on the part of his superior officer.
Inasmuch as the original purpose of those who framed the nationalbank act was to make a market for the securities of the United States,
to provide notes for circulation, and to create fiscal agencies for the
service of the Government, it is fair to presume that they had in view



26

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

such, an examination as would enable the Comptroller to ascertain
whether or not the various provisions of law had been complied with,
and to see that the interests of the Government were protected, so far
as they were involved in deposits of public moneys or the issuing of circulating notes.
Among other requirements the national-bank act provides that the
capital stock of an association shall be fully paid in cash, and that each
director shall be a citizen of the United States and the bona fide owner
of at least ten shares of the capital stock; that loans shall be made only
on personal security; that real estate, when lawfully held, shall be disposed of within the period of five years; that a list of shareholders shall
be correctly prepared and kept subject to the inspection of creditors
and shareholders; that a reserve of lawful money shall be held against
deposits; that dividends shall not be made until earned; that loans to
any one person, corporation, or firm shall not exceed in amount 10 per
cent of the capital paid in; that the liabilities of the association under
section 5202 of the Eevised Statutes of the United States shall not exceed the amount of its capital stock actually paid in; that checks shall
not be certified in excess of the drawer's deposit, and that loans shall
not be made while the lawful money reserve is deficient.
It would seem to be the duty of an examiner in making an official
visit to an association to ascertain whether or not these requirements
had been fully complied with and to report any disobedience of these
provisions of law brought to his attention. He is also expected upon
occasion to ascertain and report to the Comptroller as to whether or
not the latter can properly approve a proposed increase or reduction of
capital, and as to the propriety of permitting an association desiring to
do so to extend its corporate existence or go into voluntary liquidation.
Inasmuch as the Comptroller is authorized to require any association
whose capital becomes impaired to pay the deficiency by assessment
upon its shareholders and to appoint a receiver to close up its business
in case it fails to make good its capital within three months after being
notified so to do, and inasmuch as the Comptroller is further authorized
to appoint a receiver for any association which he shall become satisfied
is insolvent, it would appear to be the duty of an examiner to not only
ascertain but verify the liabilities and resources of an association and
make such an estimate of the value of the latter as will enable the
Comptroller upon his report to determine with reasonable certainty
whether or not impairment of capital or insolvency exists.
So far as can be deduced from the provisions of the act under which
national-banking associations are organized and operated, an examiner's duties are al)ove substantially set forth. In the letter of instructions addressed to examiners, and upon the blank reports furnished
for their use are found directions covering the requirements of the law
as above expressed. Much, however, must be left to the discretion and
intelligence of the examiner himself. No cast-iron rules, covering minute
details, can be issued to examiners as a class, for the reason that what
would be practicable, proper, and necessary in the case of a small bank
located in some obscure hamlet, would not be applicable in the case of
a large association in a central reserve city.
As a rule examiners find the greatest difficulty in so directing their
efforts as to ascertain whether or not impairment or insolvency exists.
They are directed to verify every credit and debt balance, to personally
count the cash, and to list and verify the loans and discounts and other
assets of the association. This verification can not, of course, be exhaustive, for the reason that the compensation awarded examiners by




REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

27

law would not cover the-time necessarily employed to this end. Nor
would national banks, as a class, be willing to surrender their books
and suffer interference with their business for a sufficient length of
time to permit the examiner to make a complete audit of their affairs,
even if they were willing to submit to the expense necessarily attending it.
The liabilities of a bank are represented to a large extent by pass
books in the hands of a multitude of depositors, by drafts issued to a
large number of purchasers and by them transmitted to distant points,
a large amount (several days' issue at least) always being in transit
and unpaid; in certificates of deposit and other like evidences of indebtedness held by persons unknown and inaccessible to the examiner,
in balances due to other banks, and in bills payable and rediscounts,
usually in the hands of distant correspondents of the association.
It is obvious, therefore, that it would be absolutely impracticable for
the examiner to make such a complete verification as would demonstrate beyond question that the entries stating these liabilities upon
the books of the bank precisely correspond with the amounts represented by these various evidences of indebtedness. Some of these
accounts may in a certain degree be verified by correspondence with
the distant creditors, but to call in all the pass books, certificates of
deposit, and drafts in transit would be obviously impracticable.
The examinations, and reports based thereon, have undergone a
gradual process of evolution during the more than quarter of a century that the national-banking system has been in existence. From
year to year the attention of the Comptroller has been called to new
and novel devices adopted by those who sought to cover up their criminality or prevent the discovery of serious losses. This has led to increased vigilance upon the part of examiners and to the adoption of
such measures as would, so far as possible, prevent the success of such
devices in the future. So, under the exigencies of the service the
scope and details of examinations have undergone gradual transformation and enlargement, making them more and more effective and valuable as the age of the system and experience in the wiles of dishonest
bank officials increases.
The small losses suffered by creditors of national banks in- the past
have led some part of the general public to feel that governmental
supervision should bo of such a character as to absolutely prevent these
associations from becoming insolvent and that in case such failures
occur those charged with the administration of the law are necessarily
derelict in duty. It is apparent, however, that such is very far from
being the case. It will be observed that the duties of the Comptroller,
and in some sense the examiners, are largely negative; that the law consists in large part of necessary limitations and restrictions upon the
operations of the associations organized under its authority. The
Comptroller is therefore mainly charged with the responsibility of indicating to bank managers what they shall not do.
The affairs of each association are, however, wisely placed under the
control of a board of directors elected by the shareholders, which is alone
vested with the power to direct its management. It is apparent that it
would be impracticable for any Bureau of the General Government
to undertake to participate to any degree in the receiving of deposits,
in the making of loans, and in the thousand details incident to the
management of each particular bank. It would be in the highest
degree unfortunate and unwise for the Government to attempt to



28

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

usurp in any manner the duties which are and must be devolved
upon the representatives of the shareholders of the various banks —
upon its directors and officers.
That the limitations and restraints imposed by the national-bank
act, supplemented by the periodical reports required and published,
have done much to promote the success of the banks constituting the
national system, and the security of the various creditors is demonstrated
by its history. It is, however, indisputable, and conceded by all those
informed as to the facts, that the system of examinations provided for
in the brief paragraph quoted at the beginning of this article is of paramount importance and absolutely indispensable to the conspicuous
success which has attended the operations of these associations from
the inauguration of the system.
The officers directly in charge of the various banks and the employes
to whom are committed the details incident to the proper conduct of
the business, are actuated by the same motives which inspire humanity
generally and are subject to the same temptations and the same
ambitions. In the opinion of the Comptroller, every such officer and
employe will admit that the expected * visit of a skilled examiner who
is to inspect and criticise the work upon which he is engaged incites
him to greater diligence, promptness, and accuracy, tends to deter him
from entering upon operations inconsistent with good banking, and
strengthens him in his efforts to overcome those temptations to disobey
the law which come to every bank manager through the pressure ot
customers in the most varied and insidious forms.
That the visits of an examiner should be always welcome to those
in charge of a bank is not to be expected. Those, however, who are conscious of having discharged their duties with fidelity and ability gladly
welcome the inspection of an expert who can properly appreciate the
results of their faithfulness. The officer in charge who earnestly desires
an honorable and successful career will gladly accept the services of
one who can aid him in verifying the various accounts of the bank and
in establishing the fidelity and ability of those subordinates who are entrusted with the details of business. The directors of any association
who are disposed to fulfill the important duties imposed by law and
to merit the confidence reposed in them by their shareholders, hail with
pleasure the visit of one whose sole object is to reinforce their efforts
to contribute to the safety and success of the institution which has
been committed to their care and direction.
Unfortunately dereliction of duty on the part of directors is the chiel
cause of failure upon the part of corporations generally and of national
banks particularly. It is this inattention to duty upon the part of
those chosen to represent the shareholders in the management of national banks which has made the visits of the examiner an absolute
necessity.
It has become a habit on the part of the general public whenever the
failure of a national bank occurs to at once challenge the integrity or
skill of the examiner charged with its supervision, oblivious of the fact
that Ms energy, his experience, and his devotion to duty may have pre-.
vented the failure of a score of more or less embarrassed institutions
as to whose mismanagement they are of necessity entirely uninformed.
The bank examiner as a rule faithfully discharges his duty. Every
disobedience of law, and everything indicating impairment of capital,
insolvency, or criminality are in most instances faithfully reported to
the Comptroller of the Currency. In every such case the Comptroller
applies the remedy named in the law. If the report indicates a minor




REPOKT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

29

disobedience of law or of tlie rules of sound banking, caution or .reproof
is administered. If impairment of capital is indicated he immediately
issues a notification that it be made good by assessment upon the shareholders. In case insolvency is shown to his satisfaction a receiver is
appointed.
The great service performed through the agency of bank examiners
consists largely, however, in meeting dangerous and unlawful practices at the threshold. The number of cases of this kind which have
been arrested at the beginning, and severe loss, if not insolvency, prevented by the prompt and timely action of bank examiners is very
great, although necessarily unknown to the general public, and hence
unappreciated by those whose interests have been protected.
The Comptroller feels the need continually of one or more supervising examiners of approved skill and unquestioned integrity who might
visit the various examiners in the field and bring the work into greater
uniformity and in many ways increase its efficiency. Although the instructions are explicit and the blanks so arranged as to constantly remind these officers of what a complete examination should consist, yet
the Comptroller can not always feel assured that these are fully understood and faithfully obeyed. And, again, when failures multiply and
exigencies arise making extra precautions necessary, the services of
one or more conspicuously capable examiners who are not permanently
assigned to any particulary district would be invaluable.
The Comptroller also calls attention to the fact that assistant examiners are needed in all the large cities, and that no such office now exists.
He therefore recommends that the law be so amended as to provide
for the appointment of not more than three supervising examiners who
shall receive an annual salary to be paid from the public funds; that
the Comptroller be empowered to appoint as many assistant examiners
as may in his judgment be necessary, to be paid such compensation as
maybe fixed by the Comptroller from the fees of the examiners by whom
they are employed.
That each supervising examiner, examiner, and assistant examiner
be required to take an oath before entering upon the discharge of his
duties, and also to give bonds in such amount and with such sureties as
may be satisfactory to the Comptroller.
CERTIFICATES OF STOCK.

Section 5139 of the Eevised Statutes of the United States provides
that "The capital stock of each association shall be divided into shares
of one hundred dollars each, and be deemed personal property, and
transferable on the books of the association in such manner as may be
prescribed in the by-laws or articles of association."
The reports of examiners indicate that too little care is taken in the
transfer of stock and in the issuing of certificates. In many cases
boards of directors neglect to prescribe in the by-laws the manner in
which the transfers are to be made, and, as a rule, the articles of association are silent upon the subject.
In other instances the by-laws set forth in general terms the manner
in which such transfers shall be effected, but it is frequently found
that they are not obeyed, and that the transfers are of a very irregular
character, and in many cases not lawfully executed. In some banks
no stock ledger is found; in others, certificates are signed in blank and
left for some subordinate to fill out and deliver when occasion shall require. In other banks certificates surrendered for transfer are not



30

properly cancelled and preserved, and in newly organized banks they
are occasionally issued to shareholders prior to their having paid in
full for the same. Where banks are increasing their capital, certificates are sometimes issued before the increase has been submitted to
and approved by the Comptroller.
These are a few examples of irregular practices on the part of banks
which have been brought to the attention of the Comptroller by recent
examinations.
The shareholders of national banks are its proprietors and' the certificates of stock issued to them are the evidence of their proprietorship.
The importance of preserving the record of such ownership is evidently
not sufficiently appreciated. While it is true that overissues of stock
are comparatively infrequent it is nevertheless the fact that examiners
often find difficulty in verifying trial balances taken from stock ledgers.
While in most cases this is simply an evidence of carelessness and lack
of system, yet, the examiner can not always be sure that the future
may not develop that a more serious condition exists.
One remedy suggested for this state of things is that all transfers of
stock be registered by a corporation acting in the capacity of an
agent for that purpose. This is a very valuable safeguard, and is comparatively convenient and inexpensive for banks situated in large cities.
This plan is certainly worthy of investigation by all boards of directors,
and it is recommended to their favorable consideration. The added
value attached to shares by reason of this registration would, in the
opinion of the Comptroller, exceed the slight cost which such registration would involve. As the system is, however, largely composed of
banks with small capital, located outside of the larger cities, in a great
majority of cases this plan would not be deemed feasible, and therefore
the remedy, so far as it applies to the system generally, must be found
in the greater care and activity of the directors of the several associations. They should first see that proper by-laws regulating the transfer
of shares are adopted. Proper books should be furnished for recording
the transfer of shares, in accordance with the terms of the by-laws, and
provision made for the frequent examination of the certificate book,
stock ledger, and transfer book by a committee charged with this special
duty.
The signing of certificates in blank should be forbidden, and great care
should be exercised in the cancellation and preservation of surrendered
certificates. As it is important in the enforcement of the individual liability of shareholders in the case of insolvent banks whose assets prove
insufficient to pay their debts that the question of proprietorship
should be definitely determined, it is recommended that a receipt be
taken from each shareholder upon delivery to him of the certificate
representing the stock of which he is the owner.
OFFICERS AND DIRECTORS AS BORROWERS.

While the failures of the year just closed have been in large part due
to well-defined causes, which have been operating with moro or less
severity in all parts of the civilized world, supplemented by the local
influences to which allusion has been made, it is evident that some
features of the more important ones are suggestive of needed changes
in the national-bank act. In almost every instance an investigation
of the affairs of an insolvent bank discloses the fact that the officers
and directors have too freely used the funds of the association for their
own purposes, either in a lawful or unlawful manner.



REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

31

The facility with, which the active officers of a bank may borrow its
funds seems to make it necessary that some added restriction shonld
be placed upon transactions of this kind.
In the organization of a national bank those who contribute the funds
which constitute its capital should dedicate the same to the business
of banking, and not to the creation of an instrumentality through which
they may proceed to borrow to an amount largely in excess of the sum
contributed by them to the original capital.
The principal limitation as to loans and discounts is found in section
5200 of the Eevised Statutes of the United States, which reads as
follows:
The total liabilities to any association, of any person, or of any company, corporation, or firm, for money borrowed, including in the liabilities of a company or
firm the liabilities of the several members thereof, shall at no time exceed one-tenth
part of the amount of the capital stock of such association actually paid in. But
the discount of bills of exchange drawn in good faith against actually existing
values, and the discount of commercial or business paper actually owned by the
person negotiating the same, shall not be considered as money borrowed.

This limitation is found to be wholesome in its general application,
but recent events indicate that additional safeguards are needed.
In my opinion some limitation should be placed upon the amount of
commercial or business paper which may be discounted by an association for any person, company, corporation, or firm, and a similar restriction should be placed upon indirect liabilities resulting from guaranty
or endorsement. If it is deemed necessary to limit direct loans to 10
per cent of the capital paid in it would for the same reason follow that
indirect liabilities should be subject to some limitation. Just what the
extent of the restrictions should be is not so easily determined, but, in
my judgment, the direct and indirect liabilities, in the case of a director,
should not exceed 20 per cent of the capital paid in.
The active officers of the bank, who are charged with the custody ot
its assets and the handling of its funds, should not, in my opinion, be
permitted to appear as borrowers or become in any way liable to the association with which they are connected. While this might work hardship in exceptional cases it would without doubt add greatly to the security of the creditors of the banks as a whole. It would be unwise to
forbid an association to loan to or discount for its several directors, as
they are usually selected from among the leading men in the various
branches of business, for the reason that they possess information which
is of great value in passing upon paper offered by those engaged in
the same line of trade with themselves.
There seems to be no serious objection, however, to placing some
limit upon their indirect as well as direct liabilities. The Comptroller,
therefore, takes this opportunity to recommend that the active officers
of a bank be excluded from incurring liabilities to the association
with which they are connected, and that the direct and indirect liabilities of a director be confined to 20 per cent of the paid-up capital,
leaving the limitations contained in section 5200 United States Eevised
Statutes intact. The Comptroller is also of opinion that the publication of the liabilities of officers and directors would afford a valuable
safeguard.
The Comptroller also desires to call attention to the fact that no suitable penalty is provided by law for violations of section 5200 United
States Eevised Statutes.
Aside from the power to bring suit for forfeiture of franchise under
the general provisions of law laying the groundwork for enforcing the



32

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

liability of directors, the Comptroller is without the power to enforce
obedience to the limitations of the section quoted. The remedy provided is so severe as to make it entirely useless, no Comptroller having
ever brought suit to forfeit the franchise of an active bank. The reason
for this is obvious, as such a j>roceeding would destroy the bank,
thereby greatly aggravating instead of affording a remedy for the evil
complained of. The Comptroller should be empowered by law to inflict
such a penalty, by way of fine or assessment, as would make excessive
loans highly unprofitable, and yet not so severe as to prevent its being
promptly and invariably imposed in every case brought to his notice.
BONDS OF BANK OFFICERS.

Circumstances attending recent failures have served to call the attention of the Comptroller to the fact that much greater care should be
exercised by boards of directors in the matter of the official bonds of
the officers and employes of their several banks.
The general verdict of those most experienced in the management of
banks is in favor of requiring official bonds from all who occupy
places of trust, and especially those who handle cash or convertible
securities. Under the national-bank act it is left discretionary with
boards of directors whether or not they shall require official bonds.
This matter should be taken up, fully discussed, and definitely decided
by each board of directors.
At the time of organization the matter usually has attention and
certain requirements are decided upon but are inefficiently carried out.
Frequently the by-laws of an association contain all that is necessary
in relation to bonds, but the reports of bank examiners disclose the fact
that these by-laws often become obsolete by reason of inattention to
their enforcement.
There are various phases of this subject which should be considered
by those responsible for the management of a bank. In the first place
it is necessary that the board of directors should decide as to the particular officers and employes who shall give official bonds and determine
upon the amount in each case. Ordinarily this covers the entire action
of the board in relation to the matter. This, however, does not constitute the full measure of their duty. Great care should be taken in preparing the form of the bond required so that in case it becomes forfeited the penalty can be enforced. Not only should the form of the
bond have careful attention but its terms should be such as to cover
not only criminal acts but such as involve a lack of due diligence on the
part of the officers or employes.
In this connection it is proper to say that the Comptroller is in receipt
of information, from a source which entitles it to the highest consideration, that bonds are habitually offered and frequently accepted which
guarantee the bank only against such misconduct of the officer as amounts
to embezzlement or larceny and do not secure it against gross carelessness or against connivance at or the overlooking of its spoliation by
others.
This warning should be heeded and every board of directors should
promptly order an examination of all official bonds in their custody by
competent counsel so that their bank may not suffer through their
neglect when an exigency arises.
Again, it is important that the sureties should be of such a character
as to insure the collection of the penalty in case of forfeiture. If the
surety is an incorporated company, as is common now? its solvency



REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY

33

should be fully ascertained, and the necessary information procured as
to its right to enter into such a contract under its charter. It is also
important that this class of bonds should be examined with especial care
as to whether they are broad enough in their terms to properly protect
the bank in case of the unfaithfulness of the principal.
In case natural persons are accepted as surety similar care should
be exercised. No one should be accepted as surety upon such a bond
whose responsibility for the penalty is not fully established. In addition
to this it is well to reject all those who are not of such high character
and established integrity as to unhesitatingly meet any losses which
may occur, regarding it as a moral as well as a legal Obligation.
It is quite frequently the case that a bond prepared and executed,
with satisfactory sureties, is found in the custody of or accessible to
the identical officer for whose faithful performance of duty it is the
bank's only security. It is the duty of every board of directors to see
that the custody of these bonds is committed to those who can have no
interest in their becoming mislaid or destroyed, and who will faithfully
keep and produce them when wanted.
The bond having been properly prepared and executed, signed bysureties known to be responsible and deposited in secure hands, it
remains for the board of directors to make a periodical examination in
order that their existence and safety may be verified, and for the further
purpose of ascertaining that the security once deemed satisfactory has
not become impaired by death, removal, insolvency, or some other cause
which would put the interests of the bank in jeopardy.
At the regular, annual visit of the examiner inquiry is made as to
whether the by-laws require official bonds, and if so whether or not they
have been executed in accordance therewith, and also as to their custody.
He is instructed to call the attention of officers to any circumstances
developed by his examination which would tend to impair the security
of the association. His suggestions in relation to this matter, however,
are usually necessarily made to the active officers of th& bank, who are
the identical persons from whom official bonds are required. It is often
impracticable for him to call the attention of the board of directors of
the bank to the necessity for the desired action in a given case.
The danger lurking here is greatly aggravated by the fact that, as a
rule, the active officers possess the unbounded confidence of the board
of directors, and this confidence generally remains unshaken until the
commission of some act which makes necessary a resort to the sureties
upon the official bond.
Unless the precautions above alluded to have had attention prior to
the discovery of the unfaithfulness of the trusted officer or employe*
the directors awaken too late to the fact that they have been derelict in
duty.

RESUMPTION OF BUSINESS BY CI OSED BANKS.

A conspicuous feature of the operations of this Bureau for the report
year has been the resumption of business by banks which had voluntarily closed their doors to business.



36

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

Ordinarily the closing of a national bank serves to so greatly impair
its credit as to render its resuscitation both impracticable and undesirable. In most cases the dishonesty or mismanagement which necessitates the closing of its doors causes such an impairment of confidence
as to prevent the bank, even under new and. competent management,
from regaining its former position and securing the necessary support
from the general public.
Ordinarily it is deemed better to organize a new association, with an
entirely new title, than to endeavor to reopen one which has been closed.
Occasionally, however, it occurs that the closing of a bank may result
from causes which neither seriously affect its credit nor greatly impair
its capital. In some such cases the confidence of the community is not
withdrawn, and the good will of the association, which may have had
a long and honorable career, is deemed by its shareholders worthy of
preservation.
It has been the policy of the Comptroller in every such case to encourage the adoption of measures that would enable him to withdraw
the examiner or receiver and permit the bank to resume business at as
early a date as possible. He has, however, invariably made it a condition precedent that the affairs of the association should be put in a
satisfactory condition. This would imply that its capital should be
unimpaired, that its cash should be substantially equal to its demand
liabilities, and that all doubtful and worthless assets should be eliminated; that all its affairs should be placed in strict compliance with
law and such changes made in its board of directors and officers as
would exclude those who had been guilty of mismanaging its affairs,
and generally such measures enforced as would insure a prudent, conservative, and law-abiding course in the future.
This policy has only been adopted in cases where the Comptroller was
led to believe that the conditions were, to a marked degree, favorable
to a successful future career.
The failure of a bank is always a calamity, even where the assets of
the failed institution are sufficient to ultimately pay in full its liabilities.
The delay necessarily incident to converting these assets into cash and
dividing them among the several claimants is the cause of much inconvenience and loss to a large number of depositors.
A national bank is organized for the purpose of conducting a commercial business, and is ordinarily the depositary for the current cash
receipts of persons engaged in every form of manufacturing, industrial,
and commercial business. Most of these enterprises are conducted with
capital barely sufficient to form a basis of credit, the latter being mainly
relied upon and of, by far, the greater importance. Every such firm
engaged in business is liable to have its credit destroyed by the locking
up of its cash resources, resulting in the dishonoring of its paper and
subsequent failure.
All classes, however, are represented among the creditors of these
insolvent banks. The desire to find a safe depository for funds temporarily idle moves all alike. The rich and the poor, young and old,
capitalist and laborer, all appear as claimants.
An investigation of the affairs of an insolvent bank invariably discloses cases of peculiar hardship and frequently brings to light such
misfortunes as are calculated to arouse the sympathies of the most indifferent. It is therefore a matter of great importance to the creditors
of a failed association that their balances be made available at the
earliest date practicable.

Not only are the creditors of a failed association greatly benefited
by its being speedily reopened for business but shareholders also, for
it is a well-established fact that the assets of such an association are
much more valuable to it as an active bank than if in liquidation or
in the hands of a receiver.
As a result of the policy outlined above six national banks, which
closed their doors to business, possessing an aggregate capital of
$2,225,000 and having liabilities amounting to $3,756,362, have been
permitted to resume business since the 1st day of January, 1891. One
other bank, closed by order of the Comptroller, having a capital of
$300,000 and liabilities amounting to $622,221, was permitted to go into
voluntary liquidation, the directors and principal shareholders of the
bank having provided the necessary funds to meet all liabilities.
The following table gives the title of these banks, date of closing,
date of resumption, and amount of capital and liabilities.

Of these banks the Newton National Bank of Newton, Kans., and the
Farmers and Merchants' National Bank of Clarksville, Tenn., were in
the hands of receivers. In the other cases no receiver had been appointed, a bank examiner being in charge between the date of closing
and reopening of the bank for business.
In each of the cases above mentioned the banks when reopened were
reported by the officer in charge to possess an unimpaired capital, cash
in hand sufficient to meet all demand liabilities, and under such management as gave reasonable assurance of an honorable and successful
career. All these banks are still in operation, having promptly met all
their obligations according to their terms, excepting the Washington
National Bank of New York, which was permitted to go into voluntary
liquidation and has paid in full all liabilities.
So far as the Comptroller is informed the records of the Department
disclose but one case in the history of the system prior to 1891 where
a bank once placed in the hands of a receiver was permitted to reopen.
It is hoped and believed that the future success of these banks will
be such as to warrant the Comptroller in continuing a policy which has
led to their rehabilitation.

For several years a statement has been presented, showing in condensed form, the changes occurring in the principal items of resources

It will be seen that capital, surplus, undivided profits, and deposits
have increased from $995,542,378 in January, 1866, to $2,596,606,111 on
September 25,1891, and that loans and discounts amounting to $500,650,109 have reached the sum of $1,989,354,239, which is nearly quadruple, and upon reference to other pages in this report that the number
of active banks has increased from 1,582 to 3,677. The holdings in
bonds have decreased from $440,380,350 to $174,907,550, but on April
4, 1879, an intermediate period, the banks held $712,437,900. The
specie held by the banks on January 1, 1866, amounted to $16,909,363,
was only $8,050,330 in 1875, and amounted to $183,515,076 on September 25, 1891, which was a falling off of more than $12,000,000 since October 2, 1890, on which date the highest point was reached.
The following comparative statement gives the percentages of loans
and discounts, United States bonds, and specie to the entire fund with
which the banks do business, which is made up of capital, surplus, undivided profits, circulation, and deposits.
In 1866 the percentage of circulation to capital, surplus, and undivided profits was about 45 per cent, and is now about 13 per cent, the
same as last year.

CIRCULATING NOTES.

The actual circulation outstanding on September 25, 1891, for which
the banks were responsible was $134,897,243, this amount being exclusive of $37,002,875 also in circulation but represented by lawful moneydeposited by the banks for redemption purposes whenever the notes are
received by the Treasurer.
The minimum deposit of the bonds required of the 3,677 national
banks in operation September 25,1891, was $104,933,987, upon which
only $94,440,589 of national-bank circulation could be issued. These
banks held, on September 25, $150,035,600 of bonds, and were actually
responsible for $40,456,654 of circulation more than the minimum. Some
banks do not take circulation.
Of the 3,677 banks 2,651 have a capital not exceeding $150,000 nor
less than $50,000 each, which is the lowest amount any bank in the
system may have, the aggregate capital amounting to $214,126,010.
The remaining 1,026 have a capital of over $150,000 each, the aggregate
amounting to $463,300,860. If an amount of bonds equal to the total
capital were deposited to secure circulation the whole body of banks
might have a circulation amounting to $609,684,183, or $515,243,594
more than the present minimum. A table in the Appendix, page 141,
shows, by States and geographical divisions, this information in detail.

The foregoing table is perpetuated to show'by comparison the falling
off in the amount of bonds deposited in excess of the requirement, and
it will be seen that the percentage of excess has fallen from 28 in
1882->83 to .12 in 1889-?90. Of the 239 banks organized during the
past fiscal year 143 have a capital of $50,000 each, amounting to
$7,150,000 5 56 have a capital of over $50,000 and not exceeding $150,000,
aggregating $5,280,000, and 40 have an aggregate capital of $15,250,000.
The 40 largest banks deposited the exact amount of bonds required by
law, and of the remaining 199 banks only 4 deposited bonds in excess
of the requirement.
Notwithstanding the continuous accession of new banks to the system, more than counterbalancing the number which fail or are placed
in voluntary liquidation from year to year, the outstanding circulation
steadily decreases.
The anomaly, however, is presented, as a^pesult of operations during
the past year, of an increased circulation for which the banks are responsible. This increase amounted to $9,720,287, and was caused by
the organization of new banks and additional deposits of bonds by
banks already organized. The aggregate outstanding circulation, however, was reduced by the redemption of $19,400,679, for which lawful
money had been deposited, leaving a net decrease of $9,680,392.
By referring to page 52 it will be observed that the total withdrawal
of bonds, for transfer to the Secretary for purchase or redemption,
amounted to $32,378,800, nearly the whole amount being substituted
by other bonds.
The following table shows by comparison for eight years the amounts
of lawful money deposited and the consequent decrease of circulation:

MARKET PRICES OF UNITED STATES BONDS.

The investment value of United States bonds increases as the relative
market price of such bonds declines. The 4J percents matured September 2, 1891, and it will be observed that the market price declined
very regularly up to date of maturity. The fluctuation in prices of 4
percents was not considerable, the decline, however, being about double
that during the previous year. The following table, prepared by the
Acting Actuary of the Treasury, will show the movements in prices
of the two classes during the year ended October 31, 1891:

BOND PURCHASES AND REDEMPTIONS BY THE TREASURY.

During the past report year, the purchase of 4 per cents was discontinued by the Government in the month of January, the total purchases
amounting to $8,645,850. Under Treasury circular dated October 9,
1890, the redemption of 4£ per cents commenced, interest being added
to the face of the bond up to and including August 31, 1891. Under
the various circulars issued, the total redemptions of 4J per cents
amounted to $33,966,150, and the total purchased and redeemed of
both classes to $42,612,000. The total purchases and redemption of
these two classes of bonds amounted to $373,484,150 since the issue of
circular dated April 17, 1888. Circular dated July 2,1891, provided
that any of the 4£ pei\cents theretofore called for redemption might be
presented for continuance during the pleasure of the Government, with
interest at the rate of 2 per centum per annum, in lieu of redemption.
A subsequent circular extended the time for presentation for continuance to September 30.
The amount of bonds so continued was $25,364,500. On November
1? there were $4,601,500 of this class of bonds which had not been
presented for redemption or continuance. Of this amount the national
banks had on deposit to secure circulation $199,400. The statutes re-

quire in tlie organization of a national bank a deposit of United States
registered bonds bearing interest, and the few banks holding these
bonds, being either indifferent or recalcitrant, were addressed by
circular to substitute interest-bearing bonds without delay. The question had heretofore arisen as to the legal status of a bank having
bonds on deposit which did not comply with the statutes, and the question, upon being referred to the Department of Justice, was decided
adversely to the banks declining to withdraw non-interest-bearing bonds
and substitute others.

BOND WITHDRAWALS BY NATIONAL BANKS.

The effect of the purchase and redemption of bonds during the year
by the Treasurer upon the volume of circulation was inconsiderable;
for, of the $3,926,050 bonds withdrawn by the banks, and substitution
not made upward of $1,553,000 were withdrawn on account of failed
and liquidating banks. Notwithstanding the withdrawal of $2,372,500
on account of reducing banks, there was an actual increase in the
amount of circulation, for which the banks are responsible, as will be
seen elsewhere.
The following table shows the class and amount of bonds withdrawn
by the banks, for purchase or redemption under Treasury circulars of
October 9, December 6, 1890, June 2, July 2, August 24, September 2,
and September 16,1891, and the class and amount of bonds deposited
from October 31,1890, to November 1, 1891, together with the total
withdrawals, on the deposit of lawful money, for which substitution
was not made.

This act provides for a reduction of the outstanding circulation of an

United States in sums of not less than $9,000, and the act of July 12,
1882, requires a deposit of lawful money for the retirement of the old
circulation of banks whose corporate existence has been extended.
Under these acts, and on account of liquidating and insolvent banks,
$454,844,949 of lawful money has been deposited with the Treasurer,
including $2,663,720 deposited for the redemption of notes of national
gold banks, and $97,756,232, for the redemption of national-bank notes
under the act of July 12,1882.
During the year ended October 31? 1891, $3,545,358 in lawful money
was deposited, $1,878,282 of which was by banks reducing circulation,
$1,352,926 by banks in voluntary liquidation, $70,398 by banks retiring old circulation issued prior to the extension of their corporate
existence, and $243,752 by insolvent banks.
The total amount deposited prior to and under the acts of June 20,
1874, and July 12, 1882, is $469,089,759, and of this sum $72,397,467
was deposited by banks in liquidation. Deducting from the total deposit the amount of circulating notes redeemed and destroyed without
reissue, which was $433,659,038, there remained in the hands of the
Treasurer on October 31? 1891, $35,430,721 in lawful money for the redemption and retirement of national-bank circulation, including $116,837 for the redemption of the circulating notes of national gold banks.
Prior to June 20, 1874, national-bank notes amounting to $10,431,135
were redeemed and destroyed without reissue, $423,227,903 having been
redeemed, destroyed, and retired since that date. The latter amount
includes $2,546,883 of the notes of national gold banks and $78,121,644
of the notes of national banks whose corporate existence has been extended.

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

There are no national gold banks now in existence, and the lawful
money on deposit with the Treasurer of the United States, amounting
to $116,837, represents the remaining outstanding* circulation of these
banks.
TAX UPON CIRCULATION, REDEMPTION CHARGES, AND ASSESSMENTS.

United States statutes subject national banks to the payment of a
semiannual duty of one-half of 1 per cent upon the average amount of
notes in circulation issued upon deposits of interest-bearing bonds of
the United States, and the banks are required under the provisions of
the act approved June 20, 1874, to pay the expenses incident to the
redemption of their notes to the Treasurer of the United States. The
banks are also required to pay the expenses of preparing plates from
which their circulating notes are printed. The fees allowed to national
bank examiners are paid by the banks at rates fixed in accordance with
the provisions of section 5240 of the Revised Statutes, as amended by
the act approved February 19, 1875. The amount of tax upon circulation and assessments collected during the past year were as follows:
Semi-annual duty on circulation
Cost of redemption of notes by the United States Treasurer
Assessment for cost of plates, new banks
Assessment for cost of plates, extended banks
Assessment for examiners' fees (sec. 5240, Revised Statutes)

CAUSES OF FAILURE.

The First National Bank of Meade Center, Kans., closed its doors
October 17,1890, being unable to satisfy demand liabilities presented
for payment.
Injudicious loans had been made which were not readily convertible,
and a sudden demand for the payment of a county deposit precipitated



62

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

suspension. The remote causes of failure were negligence of directors,
general stagnation of business, and decrease in values, resulting from
continuous failure of crops.
The First National Bank of Alma, Kans., for several months prior to
suspension of business had received more than ordinary attention from
the national bank examiner, two examinations having been made
within a period of six months. The president of the bank was accused
of borrowing money on the strength of the bank's indorsement for personal use and investment in private enterprises, and of issuing certificates of deposit in blank sums to be sold under contract by outside
parties. Judgments were resting against the president individually,
and judgment had been obtained against the bank by a correspondent,
the sheriff levying upon the real and personal property. The amount
of demand liabilities was very small and voluntary liquidation was contemplated, but an examiner, who visited the banfc with special instructions, closed the doors on [November 10, 1890, after due examination.
The First National Bank of Belleville, Kans., closed its doors December 2, 1890.
The president was a large borrower, and used the bank for individual
purposes. The banking house was destroyed by fire October 28, and
from that date deposits gradually diminished, seriously limiting the
business of the bank. The president was active in promoting local enterprises, some of which were total failures, and there was no return
from investments.
The creditors have been paid 55 per cent on the principal of claims
proved.
The American National Bank of Arkansas City, Kans., closed its doors
December 8, 1890.
The condition of affairs was complicated. The officers of the bank
had used assets to further personal interests, and created large and excessive loans. The immediate cause of suspension was inability to pay
a demand certificate of deposit. There was an unwarranted extension
of business in attempting to sustain enterprises in which the officers
were interested, and large sums of money were borrowed upon certificates of deposit at high rates of interest. Dividends were paid to shareholders not justified by the earnings of the bank, and the directors were
guilty of gross inattention to duty, disregard of the law and advice from
the Comptroller.
Dividends have been paid amounting to 20 per cent on the principal
. of claims proved, and the assets may prove to be sufficient for payment
in full.
The Spokane National Bank of Spokane Falls, Wash., closed its doors
December 18, 1890.
The entire management of affairs was committed to the cashier and
the vice-president, who were the moving spirits in speculative enterprises, which were carried on without interference or control by the
directors, the latter never giving the bank any attention, but lending
their names in support of the reckless operations of the cashier. About
one-half of the deposits were locked up in private banks and mining
interests. This condition of affairs made it impossible for the bank to
meet its demand obligations, and was the immediate cause of suspension.
A dividend of 15 per cent has been paid to creditors on the principal of claims proved.
The City National Bank of Hastings, Nebr., closed its doors December 27, 1890.
On October 17 an assessment upon the shareholders, amounting to



REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

63

50 per cent of the capital stock, was levied by the Comptroller, and
remained unpaid. The examiner upon taking charge discovered the
fact that more than one-half of an increase of capital certified to the
Comptroller as having been paid in, and authorized by him in accordance with law, was represented by the notes of subscribers, the obligations remaining unpaid at date of suspension.
Notes had been rediscounted for persons to whom the president had
transferred real estate at fictitious values. High rates of interest were
paid on certificates of deposit and bills payable to non-resident capitalists for several years prior to the suspension, and dividends not earned
were declared and paid to shareholders. The board of directors was
inattentive to duty, which made reckless mismanagement possible.
A dividend of 15 per cent has been paid to creditors on the principal of claims proved.
The People's National Bank of Fayetteville, N. 0., closed its doors
December 31, 1890, the immediate cause being a slight run by depositors. The condition of affairs, as reported by the examiner upon
taking charge, showed gross irregularities by the president and criminal violation of law. As a critical examination progressed, it was
found that the bank had been practically insolvent for many years, the
Comptroller and the examiners havingbeen deceived through systematic
and successful attempts to carry among the assets a large amount of
note's and bills as alive and secured which were in fact past due and
worthless.
The president was permitted to abstract funds of the bank upon the
indorsement of notes taken by him in connection with an outside enterprise, and which v/ere represented as being secured by chattel mortgage. Fictitious drafts were drawn and carried by the bank as bills of
exchange. The president was thoroughly dishonest; but, because the
directors and other officers either did not know their duties or utterly
failed to perform them, he was enabled to completely wreck the bank,.
All the facts were promptly reported to the United States district
attorney. The president was arrested, but the grand jury Tailed to
find an indictment.
A dividend of 20 per cent has been paid to creditors on the principal
of claims proved.
The First National Bank of Ellsworth, Kans., closed its doors January
26, 1891. Suspension was inevitable as the result of injudicious and
reckless loans to the cashier and his friends, the funds being used and
lost in speculation. A dividend of 15 per cent has been paid to creditors on the principal of claims proved.
The Pratt County National Bank, of Pratt, Kans., closed its doors
February 26, 1891. The president was a large borrower and a wild
speculator. The bank was compelled to take mortgages to secure his
indebtedness, which were not valuable as live assets, the aggregate
amount representing more than one-half of the capital of the bank. The
bank also suffered large losses in the earlier period of its existence,
but the management undertook to conduct a successful business byborrowing on bills payable and bills receivable and paying excessive
rates of interest on deposits. Upon sudden demand for the payment
of the deposit of the county treasurer, the bank was forced to suspend.
A dividend of 20 per cent has been paid to creditors on the principal
of claims proved.
The Second National Bank of McPherson, Kans., closed its doora
March 2y 1891. The failure of this bank was due to the reckless man


G4

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

agement of its president, who squandered the assets. "When the bank
suspended he committed suicide.
The Keystone National Bank of Philadelphia, Pa., was closed to
business on the morning of March 20, 1891 ? by order of the Comptroller
of the Currency, the examiner immediately taking charge.
An assessment upon the shareholders had been previously levied to
make good an impairment of the capital, as such impairment was then
estimated. The assessment was not responded to by the shareholders,
and upon disclosures made by the president of the bank in person to
the Comptroller, on the evening of March 19, immediate action was taken
and the bank was closed. According to the records of the bank as
then disclosed, the capital had not been entirely lost, but subsequent
investigation developed the fact that collusion among the officers and
employes had resulted in successfully deceiving the examiner and the
Comptroller with respect to the true condition of the bank.
The causes of the failure were reckless and criminal use of funds belonging to the bank, the bookkeeper having aided the president, who is a
fugitive from justice, in deceiving the examiner by false entries, such
entries being made at or about the dates of examination. This bookkeeper, after the suspension, admitted his guilt and was arrested,
brought to trial, and sentenced to imprisonment for a term of seven
years. Subsequently three other persons connected with the bank
were arrested upon information and are now held under bail for collusion.
A thorough investigation has progressed since the date of suspension,
for the purpose of ascertaining all the facts andfixingpersonal liability.
The city treasurer of Philadelphia appeared to be a large creditor, and
permission was granted State and city authorities to investigate the
records of the bank for the purpose of ascertaining the precise facts.
The Treasury Department also instituted an investigation of all the
records of the bank, with the view of ascertaining who is liable, criminally or otherwise, for the failure, which, is still in progress.
The Spring Garden National Bank of Philadelphia, Pa., closed its
doors on the morning of May 8,1891, being unable to settle with the
clearinghouse. This suspension closely followed that of the Keystone
National Bank, and as investigation proceeded it became evident that
there had been criminal violations of law. On May 28 the president
and cashier were arrested upon information and brought to trial. They
were found guilty and relegated to the penitentiary for a term of ten
years each.
The First National Bank of Eed Cloud, Nebr., was closed by the examiner May 22, 1891, payment of a certificate of deposit having been
refused, and in obedience to telegraphic instructions from the Comptroller. Upon investigation it was discovered that the bank had been
in an insolvent condition for a considerable period of time, such condition having been caused by irregularities of former officers and general mismanagement. No meeting of the shareholders had apparently
been held for more than two years, and the officers and employes
immediately in charge were permitted to conduct its affairs. The funds
of the bank were largely loaned to its officers and their relatives, the
loans not being properly secured.
The National City Bank of Marshall, Mich., closed its doors June 3,
1891. On June 2 the Comptroller was advised that the assistant
cashier had embezzled a large sum of money, but that the bondsmen
were able and willing to make good the entire loss without delay.
The cashier was very inattentive to duty, and tlie directors, having

unbounded confidence in the integrity of the employes, grossly neglected the interests of the bank. As investigation proceeded the embezzlement was found to equal the entire capital stock. On May 27
the examiner discovered the defalcation and informed the directors,
but as the bank was still considered solvent, no action was taken to
secure arrest, and the embezzler escaped before the doors were closed
and the examiner took charges
A dividend of 50 per cent has been paid to creditors upon the principal of claims proved.
The Eed Cloud National Bank of Bed Cloud, Nebr., was closed by
order of the Comptroller June 26,1891. All of its capital was represented by unconvertible securities, and the funds of the bank had been
invested in local enterprises, at great loss.
The condition of the bank was due to bad management and a total
disregard of sound banking principles.
The Asbury Park National Bank of Asbury Park, N. J., was closed
by order of the Comptroller July 1, 1891. During the period of the
bank's existence a sufficient amount of individual deposits were not obtained to make a profitable business. A large and costly building was
constructed, and as an asset was not consistent with the volume of business. The president borrowed large sums, bad loans were made, and
excessive interest was paid. Expenditures and losses were in excess of
earnings, the directors were negligent of duty, and false statements of
condition were made. The public and correspondent banks lost confidence and suspension became inevitable.
The Central Nebraska National Bank of Broken Bow, Nebr., was
closed by the examiner on the morning of June 12, 1891, upon receipt
of instructions from the Comptroller. The immediate and remote causes
for this action were the heavy loans made to individual directors, aggregating three-fifths of the capital of the bank, and the heavy loss sustained upon bills receivable, which had been foisted upon the bank
through questionable methods adopted by the officers in endeavoring
to aid outside enterprises wholly foreign to the locality. Large sums
of money were borrowed at high rates of interest, for which nearly all
of the good paper of the bank had been pledged as security.
The Florence National Bank of Florence, Ala., closed its doors June
22, 1891, the entire capital having been lost. The former president had
absolute control, improperly used the funds of the bank to sustain outside enterprises, and was forced to resign $ but his management had
placed the bank in a position from which it could not recover. The
suspension of the bank was precipitated by the protest of drafts aggregating an inconsiderable amount drawn upon a correspondent bank.
The Ninth National Bank of Dallas, Tex., was closed by the examiner
July 1,1891, upon receipt of telegraphic instructions from the Comptroller. The bank commenced business in September, 1890, and was
controlled by the cashier, who had previously become indebted for a
large amount to another national bank, of which he was an officer, and
funds of the Ninth National Bank were used to liquidate his indebtedness. The directors held meetings only on call, and were not attentive
to duty. A large proportion of the loans were made to irresponsible parties without sufficient security, and the proceeds were subrogated to
the uses of the cashier. A new management was effected, but the capital had become so impaired that suspension was inevitable. After the
examiner took charge an attempt was made to control sufficient funds
for the payment of creditors in full, so that the bank might be placed
in voluntary liquidation, bat the effort did not succeed. From the

records it would appear that the failure was almost entirely due to the
wild speculations and dishonest practices of the cashier.
The First National Bank of Kansas City, Kans., closed its doors July
16, 1891, upon demand for the payment of the city deposit. A former
president, in conjunction with the vice-president, were active speculators in real estate and the promoters of outside enterprises. These officers, and other real estate dealers, became indebted to the bank for
large sums, and when a reaction from abnormally high prices resulting
from a so-called "boom" occurred, were unable to meet their obligations or secure them with convertible collaterals. Settlements were
forced upon the bank by transfers of real estate, to such an extent that
the assets were tainted with a doubtful or worthless character. The
credit of the bank having become impaired, confidence was destroyed,
and stringency in the money market caused a withdrawal of deposits.
The bank was unable to borrow from correspondents, not being able to
pledge sufficient security, and finally could not meet demand obligations.
The First National Bank of Palatka, Fla., closed its doors July 17,
1891. The president was connected with a city banking institution
which failed. Public confidence was destroyed, which resulted in a considerable withdrawal of deposits. A large amount of stock, bonds, and
real estate mortgages were among the assets, which at date of suspension represented a large loss. Serious depreciation of values and stagnation of business were general in the locality. Formerly, the management having been left entirely to the president, loans and investments
were made in outside enterprises, dependent wholly upon the duration
of exceptional local prosperity. The president and his relatives were
large borrowers, and invested the funds in sustaining local schemes.
Finally the bank was unable to borrow from correspondents, or rediscount paper, and could not meet demand obligations.
The Farley National Bank of Montgomery, Ala., closed its doors
August 21, 1891. The immediate cause of the suspension was the protest of drafts, aggregating in amount a sum greater than the capital of
the bank, which had been cashed in the interests of a railroad company,
collateral security being held, but not readily convertible. Efforts are
being made to realize upon the security, so that the bank may resume
business.
The Rio Grande National Bank of Laredo, Tex., was closed by examiner upon receipt of instructions from the Comptroller September
14, 1891. The principal cause of failure Avas the use of the bank's funds
in sustaining an improvement company which owned a large area of
land in the locality. The bank was doing no business, its caj)ital was
seriously impaired, and its resources locked up in unconvertible securities. The depositors were few; the aggregate amount due was insignificant, and there was no money in the bank to loan.
The First National Bank of Coldwater, Kans., was closed by a national
bank examiner, upon receipt of instructions from the comptroller, September 21, 1891. An assessment upon the capital had been made, but
the shareholders did not respond. Former officers of the bank were
reckless speculators in real estate, and failed, owing the bank large
amounts. Their successors were large borrowers for similar purposes.
,The general causes which resulted in suspension were bad and careless
management and indifference to duty on the part of the directors, who
left the management entirely in the hands of the cashier. A movement
to raise sufficient funds to pay creditors in full, so that the bank might
be placed in voluntary liquidation, was abandoned.



REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

The First National Bank of Clearfield, Pa., closed its doors September 29, 1891. The entire capital had been lost. The management of
the bank rested wholly with the president, who had large interests in
ontside enterprises and a State bank, using the national bank for individual purposes. Excessive loans were made in sustaining outside
deals. Good assets were systematically abstracted, and worthless'
assets substituted. Loans not represented by the obligations of firms
and companies in some form or other, in which the president was interested, were based upon accommodation paper. Large loans were
floated, represented by paper made by persons and firms of doubtful
character. The bank acquired control of a mill property, which locked
up large sums of money in the purchase and operation, and was a losing
investment. The directors were either negligent or guilty of collusion.
The irregularities already discovered strongly indicate fraudulent and
gross violations of law. The president was promptly arrested and held
for trial.
The Washington National Bank of New York City was organized
June 5, 1890, with a capital of $300,000. Injudicious loans were made,
and the capital became seriously impaired. The doors were closed to
business March 24, 1891, but the assets being sufficient to pay all liabilities, the bank was permitted to go into voluntary liquidation.
The Newton National Bank of Newton, Kans., closed its doors November 20, 1890. A few months prior to this date an increase of capital
stock had been approved by the Comptroller, the affairs of the bank,
according to reports, being in good condition. A considerable number
of shares of stock were owned by non-residents, who regarded the
investment as secure without inquiry as to the conduct of the bank
with respect to its management.
After suspension the fact was developed that most of the increase
had been collected prior to authorization by the Comptroller, and was
represented substantially by loans made to a bank in Gruthrie, Okla.?
which had failed. The cashier of this bank was the cashier of the Newton National Bank and co-manager. The management of the Newton
National Bank practically rested with the vice-president and cashier.
Only one-third of the capital stock was held by local shareholders,
so that unusual facilities were afforded these officers for using the
funds of the bank uncontrolled, as they owned about two-thirds of the
stock locally held. The officers borrowed largely from the bank, and
pledged a majority of the good bills as collateral security for rediscounts. The Eastern shareholders were prompt in taking steps looking
to a repairment of the capital, and their efforts resulted in a deposit of
sufficient fresh capital in cash to place the bank upon a solvent footing.
The receiver was withdrawn, and the bank was permitted to resume
business July 1,1891.
The Farmers and Merchants' National Bank of Clarksville, Tenn.,
closed its doors December 10,1890, on account of the embarrassment
created by the failure of a private bank and firms indebted to it in
large sums. Eeports indicated that the embarrassment was temporary,
and immediate steps were taken by the shareholders to repair the capital, so that, if permitted, the bank might resume business. Their
efforts were successful, a voluntary assessment was levied and paid,
bad debts were charged off, and as a result there became available
funds sufficient to pay all liabilities, leaving the capital intact. The
bank was permitted to resume business April 20? 1891,

Out of 4,648 national banks organized since February, 1863, only 164,
or about 3.53 per cent, have been placed in the hands of receivers; this
includes 9 which had been previously placed in liquidation by the shareholders, but upon their failing to pay depositors the Comptroller appointed receivers to wind up their affairs. Of the 164 failed banks, 35
have paid creditors in full, principal and interest, 6 have paid principal
and a part of the interest, and 12 have paid the principal only. The
affairs of 102 of the 164 banks have been finally closed, leaving 62 in
process of settlement, of which 15 are virtually closed, with the exception
of pending litigation, leaving 47 receiverships in active operation.
The total amount so far paid to creditors of insolvent national banks
has been $38,629,123, upon proved claims amounting to $57,792,028.
The amount paid during the year has been $1,725,883, besides $15,903
paid for dividends declared prior to November 1,1890, on claims proved
since that date. Assessments amounting to $15,173,050 have been made
upon shareholders of insolvent national banks under section 5151 of the
Bevised Statutes of the United States. From this source the gross collections amount to $6,621,409, of which there has been received during
the past year $257,734. Suits are pending in some cases.
In the Appendix, page 208, a table will be found showing, under various heads, amounts collected from the assets of each of the 164 insol

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.
INACTIVE RECEIVERSHIPS.

Fifteen banks remain in the hands of receivers, the affairs of which
are practically wound up, and the trusts are kept on the inactive list
because of pending litigation or of the possession of assets, an immediate disposition of which would entail unnecessary sacrifice. The
expenses of a trust in this condition are nominal and limited to what is
actually necessary to proper and careful attention to the matters in
abeyance. Titles to property pass through a receiver and the courts,
but final dividends are sometimes paid from the office of the Comptroller, especially in the event of a considerable lapse of time after a
receiver has realized upon all available assets.
By comparison with the report of 1890 it will be observed that only
one of the banks then reported on the inactive list has been stricken
out. It is expected that the unsettled affairs of most of those in the
list will be disposed of within the next year and the receiverships
formally terminated.

BANKS IN VOLUNTARY LIQUIDATION.

mit resumption of business, the same title and charter number being
retained. The reasons for such requests are generally based upon an
unexpected appreciation in the value of assets, a desire to avoid sacrifices seemingly unnecessary, a change of management found to be important, and a desire to retain the title for its business value*
The Supreme Court of the United States has held that a national
bank in voluntary liquidation is not dissolved as a corporation, and may
bring suit or defend for the purpose of winding up its business (Bank
vs. Insurance Company, 104 X S., 54), and section 7 of the act apL
proved July 12, 1882, provides:
That national banking associations whose corporate existence has expired or shall
hereafter expire, and which do not avail themselves of the provisions of this act,
shall he required to comply with the provisions of sections 5221 and 5222 of the
Revised Statutes in the same manner as if the shareholders had voted to go into liquidation, as provided in section 5220 of the Revised Statutes; and the provisions of
sections 5224 and 5225 of the Revised Statutes shall also he applicable to such associations, except as modified by this act; and the franchise of such associations is
hereby extended for the sole purpose of liquidating their affairs until such affairs
are finally closed.

It has been held by the courts that under act of Congress approved
July 12, 1882, extending for the purpose of liquidation the franchises
of such national banking associations as do not request an extension
of their corporate existence, and making applicable to them the statutes relating to the liquidation of similar banking associations, the
shareholders may continue to elect officers and directors for the purpose of effecting liquidation. In*the case referred to, the court held
that the right to elect directors and such other officers as are usually
chosen by a business corporation is a part of the corporate franchise,
and that when the franchise is extended, although for a limited purpose, the corporation may exercise all the powers originally conferred
upon it which are appropriate for that purpose, among which is the
election of directors, the right to manage its own affairs belonging to
the bank through the shareholders, and not to those who by accident
are found to be directors in possession.
In 1868 the question arose as to whether the Comptroller of the Currency had authority to permit a national bank in voluntary liquidation
to resume all its corporate powers, the request having been made by a
bank which had been permitted to go into voluntary liquidation, the
shareholders haying rescinded a former resolution, and requesting leave
to withdraw notice to the Comptroller of a desire to liquidate the affairs
of the bank. The matter was referred to the Department of Justice,
and the opinion r
was rendered that resumption of business under such
circumstances w ould involve too many grave consequences to admit of
the supposition that such an event was contemplated by Congress, or
that it was consistent with the law.
It has been strongly urged, however, that inasmuch as the association does not lose its corporate entity prior to a disposition of the last
remaining asset, title and charter number having been preserved, and
the association having been inactive as to new business only, retroactive
action by shareholders owning, two-thirds of the stock, relative to resumption of business, should be equally potential with the original
resolution as to voluntary liquidation, inasmuch as the Comptroller is
not inhibited by the law from taking cognizance of such action.
By reference to the statute above quoted it will be seen that assoeitions which do not avail themselves of the provisions of the act for
extension of corporate existence are required to comply with the provisions applicable to associations in voluntary liquidation consequent

upon tlie action of shareholders, and that the franchises of the class
first mentioned are extended for the sole purpose of liquidation. It
seems improbable that Congress intended to make a distinction between
associations in liquidation by reason of the action or non-action of
shareholders, although in the first instance the language of the statute
is that the association may be closed, and in the other it is more
clearly indicated that the association is to be closed.
Even if it could be conclusively shown that the Comptroller can legally permit a bank in voluntary liquidation to resume business, there
would be insuperable objections to the exercise of such authority,
arising out of a consideration of those principles which underlie a sound
public policy with respect to the security of the depositors and creditors of national banks under existing law. Whenever depositors and
creditors are paid in full, shareholders are released from the stock liability prescribed by section 5151 of the Revised Statutes; and, if the association should be resuscitated, by what process could this liability
be reassumed or enforced? Furthermore, the convertible assets having been realized to liquidate indebtedness, the doubtful alone remain
to represent the interests of shareholders, and as constituting a part
of the capital would be a constant menace to the welfare of the association.
DIRECTORS.

All the powers of a national banking association are exercised through
its board of directors. As a general rule it may be said that associations will prosper just in proportion as their directors are intelligent and
faithful. The details of the business must of course be in charge of its
officers, and the duty of selecting these is one of the greatest responsibilities devolved upon the board, for unless the active managers are
skillful, honest, and attentive the affairs of the association can not
prosper.
With the selection of a proper corps of officers the duties of the directors are well begun, but this is far from constituting all that is required of them.
A recent decision of the Supreme Court of the United States has attracted attention to the fact that the duties and responsibilities of
directors of national banks are now ill defined. Without any purpose
to enter into a discussion of the decision in the case mentioned (Briggs
vs. Spaulding, et al)7 the Comptroller desires to say that legislation
should make these duties so clear and unequivocal that no person of
intelligence could plead ignorance of the requirements of the position.
National banks deriving their franchises from the General Government have in the past been conducted with conspicuous fidelity and
have afforded unexampled security to those who have made them the
depositary of their funds. While these facts are well known to all who
have access to statistics upon the subject, there is still room for progress
in the direction of security. No matter what safeguards are provided
their enforcement must necessarily be committed to human agencies, and
these are often unskillful and occasionally corrupt.
Experience shows that governmental supervision of national banks
has been in the past of very great service in promoting safe and conservative banking, although its value is neither fully understood nor
appreciated. Upon the directors, however, properly rests the responsibility of management, and any plan which contemplates relieving them
in this respect is false in principle and will be found vicious in practice.



REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

Neither can they be safely permitted to delegate their powers and
responsibilities to others, nor neglect them with impunity. If the
provisions of existing law permit directors of national banks to escape
liability for losses resulting from transactions forbidden by the national
bank act by pleading ignorance of such transactions, while such ignorance is the result of neglect of the affairs of the associations committed to
their charge, it will be useless to expect in the future any better results
than have been experienced in the past. As a matter of fact the greatest difficulty experienced by the Comptroller in promoting the successful management of the associations coming under his supervision has
resulted from his inability to inspire the directors of national banks
with a proper realization of the duties which they owe to the shareholders whom they have consented to serve and the creditors whom
they have engaged to protect. The greatest obstacles to be overcome
are neglect and inattention. In far too many associations boards of
directors never meet except upon the occasions when dividends are to
be declared, and even this is sometimes unlawfully attempted without
necessary action upon their part.
In other cases there is a disposition exhibited by directors to monopolize the loans and discounts of the bank, thus converting to their own
use the funds of others entrusted to their keeping, thereby exposing
the bank to losses by reason of want of proper distribution of its loans
and subjecting to inconvenience those customers of the bank who are
not favored with a place at the directors' table. Such inattention and
selfishness are too often the characteristics of bank directors and are
productive of serious consequences, but when accompanied, as they
sometimes are, by lack of integrity the most direful results are realized.
In relation to no matter connected with the conduct of national banks
is legislation more imperatively demanded than in making plain the
duties of those who accept the position of directors.
If to absent themselves from the bank and from the meetings of the
board affords safe grounds of defense when it is sought to hold them
accountable for losses which their presence and reasonable oversight
would have prevented, then the public have been grossly deceived as
to the measure of duty which shareholders and creditors may properly
demand of officers to whom such important trusts have been committed.
If the board of directors may safely neglect everything connected with
the conduct of a bank except the election of officers and the declaration
of dividends, then the law is greatly at fault. Such a complete abdication of powers ought not to go unrebuked and unpunished. All other
safeguards will prove of little value if the chosen and only representatives of the shareholders may lawfully refuse and neglect to give the
interests committed to their care such attention and supervision as successful proprietorship has at all times demanded.
LEGAL DECISIONS.

A digest of the most prominent national-bank cases will be found in
the appendix, page 00, decisions by the courts having been added from
year to year. This digest is intended to furnish the management of national banks with a convenient source of reference and to accommodate
the general public, much correspondence with the office being thus
avoided which would otherwise be necessary.
A very important case was decided by the Supreme Court of the
United States during the last term affecting the liability of directors
of national banks with respect to negligence and inattention to duty.

It will be observed that as compared with the previous year there
was a decrease in the volume of exchanges amounting to over
$3,000,000,000, and that nearly the whole of such decrease occurred
in the three principal eastern cities. The exchanges in New York
amounted to about 60 per cent of the whole sum for the United States,

A table will be found on page 171 of the Appendix, compiled from
returns made to the Clearing House by the national banks in New York
City, exhibiting the movement of their reserve, weekly, during October,
for the last fifteen years.
STATE, SAVINGS, PRIVATE BANKS, LOAN AND TRUST COMPANIES.

In addition to reporting the condition of associations organized under national authority, the law provides that the Comptroller of the
Currency shall procure and publish in his annual report to Congress
statements exhibiting the condition of banks, banking companies, and
savings banks organized under State and Territorial laws; and through
the courtesy of public officials, in all but 18 of the States and Territories, this Bureau has been favored with statements of condition of
such banking institutions. It has been the custom for the past few
years to add to information of that character similar returns from banks
in States in which examinations are not authorized by law and reports
of condition exacted. Such information is procured through direct correspondence with each bank and banker, over 5,500 having been requested to furnish statements for this report.
While there is an apparent reluctance upon the part of proprietors
of private banks to submit reports of their condition, officers of incorporated institutions report so generally that the returns herewith given
represent over 93 per cent of these institutions stated to be in operation, and unquestionably a larger percentage of their total banking
resources. During the year ended January 1, 1891, there was an increase of 606 over the prior year in number of banks organized, and
an increase of 583 in the number from which reports have been received this year, indicating that the field is practically covered by the
returns herewith published. Deviating in a measure from the j>lan of
tabulating these reports as heretofore given (official and unofficial returns having been abstracted and compiled separately), it has been
deemed best to consolidate all reports of each class of banks by States,
simply indicating official and unofficial returns by proper references.
Including reports made by private banks and bankers, statements
representing the resources and liabilities of 4,989 incorporated and
private banking institutions have been received, the aggregate resources
amounting to $3,448,785,431, the principal items of assets being $805,901,113, loans on real estate; $413,938,942 on collateral security other
than real estate5 $840,567,612 other loans and discounts; $157,933,522
United States bonds; $327,172,153 State, county, and municipal bonds;
$384,888,905 railroad, bank, and other stocks and bonds; $212,520,844
due from banks and bankers; $85,804,914 real estate, etc.; $165,634,081
cash on hand. The aggregate capital employed amounts to $356,749,315;
surplus and undivided profits, $304,624,493; deposits, $2,661,752,961.
Of the 4,989 reports, 2,572 are made by commercial institutions,
classified in this compilation, as State banks, having an aggregate
capital of $208,564,841; surplus and undivided profits, $81,116,533; deposits, $556,637,012.
Eeports from 171 loan and trust companies show their aggregate
resources to be $536,628,202. The capital of these companies is $79,292,889; surplus and undivided profits, $55,503,845; and deposits,
$355,330,080.
Especial interest attaches to the operations and condition of savings
banks, the repositories of the accumulations of the wage-earners, in
view of the extent of the obligations of these institutions and particDigitized forularly as their deposits represent nearly 90 per cent of their entire

liabilities. In eluding the 3G4 stock savings banks, reports of condition
have been received from 1,011 savings banks and savings institutions.
Of the 647 non-capitalized institutions, classed as mutual, all but 11 are
located in the New England and Middle States, while of those with

In the Appendix, p. 236, tables will be found showing by States and
Territories the condition of banks other than national, as obtained from
both official and unofficial sources; aggregate resources and liabilities
of each class; comparative statements of condition of State banks, 1872
to 1891; loan and trust companies, 1886-?87 to 1890-791; savings banks,
1886-?87 to 1890->91; private banks, 1887-?91; deposits in savings banks,
number of depositors and average amount due each, by States, in
1889-?90 and 1890-?91; and a summary of condition of the chartered

showing by States and Territories the estimated population of each on
June 1, 1891, based on the census of 1890, and the aggregate capital,
surplus, undivided profits, and individual deposits of national and State
banks, loan and trust companies, and savings and private banks of
the United States at date of reports of the various classes, nearest

such resources in each class of banks. It appears that the population
of the country on the date in question was 64,156,300, and the total
banking funds $5,840,438,191, an average of $91.03. The per capita
averages of such resources in each class of banks are: National banks,

LOAN AND TRUST COMPANIES IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.

During the first session of the Fifty-first Congress an act passed entitled, "An act to provide for the incorporation of trust, loan, mortgage,
and certain other corporations within the District of Columbia." This
act was approved on the 1st day of October, 1890. Under its provisions
companies can be formed for the purpose of carrying on within the District of Columbia any one of the three classes of business specified as
follows:
First. A safe deposit, trust, loan, and mortgage business.
Second. A title "insurance, loan, and mortgage business.
Third. A security, guaranty, indemnity, loan, and mortgage business.
It is further provided that the capital stock of said companies shall
not be less than $1,000,000, and that any of these companies may conduct a storage business when its capital stock amounts to the sum of
not less than $1,200,000.
Two methods are provided whereby companies may come under the
provisions of the act.

RErOKT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

(1) By an association of not less than twenty-five natural persons
to form a company, which shall receive its original charter from the
Commissioners of the District of Columbia and thereby become a body
corporate and politic, and as such vested with all the powers and charged
with all the liabilities conferred and imposed by the act upon companies
organized under the provisions thereof.
(2) Provision is made that any safe deposit company, trust company,
surety or guaranty company, or title insurance company, incorporated
and operating under the laws of the United States or the District of
Columbia, or of any of the States, and doing business in said District
at the time of the passage of said act, may avail itself of the provisions
of the act.
No charters have been issued by the Commissioners of the District of
Columbia to corporations formed by the association of natural persons
under the first method provided for in the act, but three companies, incorporated previous to the passage of the act and at that time doing
business in said District, have availed themselves of its provisions, to
wit: The American Security and Trust Company, the Washington Loan
and Trust Company, and the National Safe Deposit Company.
The American Security and Trust Company was originally chartered
under the laws of the State of Virginia, on the 12th day of October,
1889, with a capital stock of $1,250,000, divided into shares of the par
value of $100 each. This company executed a certificate of its intention to avail itself of the provisions of the act of Congress, on the 11th
day of November, 1890, and filed the same with the Comptroller of the
Currency. It having complied with all the provisions of law applicable thereto, on the 17th of November, 1890, the Comptroller issued to
said company the certificate contemplated by section 5 of the act approved October 1, 1890, and the company has since that date been
operating under its provisions.
The Washington Loan and Trust Company was incorporated under
the laws of the State of West Virginia on the 15th day of August, 1889.
This company has a capital of $1,000,000, divided into shares of $100
each, and was doing business in the District of Columbia at the date
of the passage of the act of Congress above referred to. It having filed
with the Comptroller of the Currency a certificate of its intention to
avail itself of the provisions of the act aforesaid and having complied
with the other requirements of the act, the Comptroller issued to said
company, on the 13th day of December, 1890, a certificate that it was
entitled to transact the business of a trust company.
The National Safe Deposit Company of Washington was at the date
of the passage of the act of Congress first above mentioned doing business in the District of Columbia as a safe deposit company, incorporated
by act of Congress approved January 22, 1867. On the 17th of March,
1891, this company executed a certificate of its intention to avail itself
of the provisions of the act of Congress approved October 1,1890. It
having complied with the provisions of law, the Comptroller issued to
said company, on the 3d day ofApril, 1891, the certificate contemplated
by the provisions of section 5 of said act, under which it was authorized
to enter upon the business of a trust company. It also has a capital of
$1,000,000.
Each of these companies has declared its intention to avail itself of
the provisions of the act of Congress aforesaid for the purpose of carrying on the kind or class of business described in subdivision 1 of section 1 of said act 5 that is to say, a safe deposit, trust, loan, and mortgage business, in addition to the powers lawfully exercised at the time

they severally came under the operations of the act of Congress above
referred to. Each of these companies has also deposited with the
Comptroller of the Currency securities equal in actual value to onefourth of the capital stock paid in, and is therefore entitled to become
and act as administrator, executor, guardian of the estate of a minor,
or undertake any other kindred fiduciary duty authorized by the act.
One, the American Security and Trust Company, is also authorized to
do a storage business, in accordance with the second proviso to the
third paragraph of section 1 of the act above referred to.
These several companies have each been duly examined, and have
made and published reports of condition from time to time as contemplated by the provisions of sections 5211, 5212, and 5213 of the Eevised
Statutes of the United States. A statement of condition at date of last
report will be found in the Appendix, pages 251-253.
Aside from associations formed under the national bank act and
those above enumerated, only one other corporation located in the
District of Columbia comes in any manner under the supervision of the
Comptroller of the Currency.
The institution herein referred to is the National Savings Bank of the
District of Columbia. This institution was chartered May 24, 1870,
and has since been in operation. It is now, however, practically in
process of liquidation, its business being gradually transferred to and
absorbed by the National Safe Deposit Company, above referred to.
A report of its condition on the 25th of September is published in the
Appendix, page 250, which will show its condition at that time. It is
understood to be the purpose of the directors of this bank to complete
the tranfer of its business to the National Safe Deposit Company and
to finally close its affairs at the earliest practicable date.
CONCLUSION.

During the year covered by the report the country has been passing
through a financial crisis, unique in its character but of great severity.
In no country are the conditions more favorable to the success of well
directed enterprise than in this, and in none can the speculative operator
find a more tempting and fruitful field. These conditions necessarily
tend toward overtrading and undue expansion of credits, and these in
due time result in collapse and general financial distress.
Although periods of business disaster follow each other at reasonably
well-defined intervals, the multitude, oblivious of the past, are always
taken unawares. Those charged with the management of national
banks are not free from the optimistic spirit which characterizes their
fellows, and hence the associations under their control invariably suffer
whenever these periods of depression recur. The failures witnessed
during the year just closed exemplify the operations of the forces to
which- allusion is made.
Whenever we consider the immense shrinkage of values which the
liquidations of the past twelve months involves, we are surprised that
the associations constituting the national system have not suffered more
severely. The growth of this system in recent years must not be overlooked when we are called upon to consider the degree of success that
has attended its operations.
It is rapidly becoming popularized and for that reason more intimately
connected with the business enterprises of the common people, reflecting with increasing faithfulness the degree of success or failure that attends their various commercial and industrial pursuits. So long as




86

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

banking remains free, associations will be formed by inexperienced men
whose management will sometimes prove unskillful and disastrous. So
long as dishonest men exist banks must not expect to entirely escape
the defalcations and embezzlements which occasionally startle the public. Failures are inevitable under any system which stops short of governmental guaranty, and the latter is, of course, impracticable. That
system, then, is best, all else being equal, which is found upon trial to
exhibit the minimum of failures. In this respect, the national system
stands unapproached and indisputably superior to all which have preceded it. It is confidently hoped therefore that such measures will be
taken by Congress as will serve to perfect a system which has proved
so effective in the past, and which is so necessary to the future welfare
of the people.
The Comptroller desires in closing to say that the past year has devolved upon the Currency Bureau an amount of labor and responsibility
which is entirely unprecedented. To those associated with him in the
conduct of the affairs of the Office he is greatly indebted for the intelligent
and faithful service which has made it possible to meet these increased
responsibilities. He also desires to gratefully acknowledge the valuable assistance rendered him by those charged with the preparation
of the statistical matter contained in this report.
EDWARD 8. LACEY,

Comptroller of the Currency.

I. CONSTITUTIONAL LAW.
1. POWERS OF CONGRESS:

(a) Congress has the constitutional power to incorporate banks. (McCullochv.
Maryland, 4 Wheat.. 316: Osborne v. Bank of the United States, 9 Wheat.
738.)
(b) Congress has power to clothe national banking associations, as to their contracts and dealings with the world, with any special immunities and privileges exempting them, in their trade and intercourse with others, from the
laws and remedies applicable in like cases to other citizens. (The Chesapeake Bank v. The First National Bank of Baltimore, 40 Aid., 269.)
(c) Thus, the provision of the banking law that no attachment, injunction, or
execution shall issue against a national banking association before final
judgment in any suit, action, or proceeding in a State court is constitutional. (Ibid.)
(d) The tax imposed on State or national banks paying out the notes of individuals or State banks for circulation is constitutional. (Veazie Bank v.
Fenno, 8 Wall, 533.)
(e) So is the tax imposed on them for paying out the circulating notes of municipal corporations. (Merchants'' National Bank of Little Bock v. United
• States, 101 U. S., 1.)
(/) Such a tax is not a direct tax within the meauing of the clause of the Constitution which declares that "direct taxes shall be apportioned among the
several States according to their respective numbers." (Veazie Bank v.
Fenno and Mechanics7 National Bank of Little Bock v. United States, mpra.)
(g) Congress having, in the exercise of undisputed constitutional powers, undertaken to provide a currency for the whole country, may secure the benefit of it to the people by appropriate legislation. (Veazie Bankv. Fenno,
supra.
(h) Congress has the power to divest the United States courts of their jurisdiction of suits by or against national banking associations. (National Bank
of Jefferson v. Fare et al., U. S. C. C. (E. D. Texas), 25 Fed. Bep., 209.)
2. POWERS OF THE STATES:

(a) National banking associations, being instruments designed to aid the Government in the administration of a branch of the public service, can not be
controlled by the States, except in so far as Congress may see proper to
permit. (Farmers and Mechanics1 Batik v. Bearing, 91 U. S., 29.)
(b) No authority from the State is necessary to enable a State bank to convert
itself into a national banking association. (Casey .v. Galli, 94 U. £.,673.)
(c) National banking associations located outside of a State are subject to its
restraining acts prohibiting all corporations, not authorized by the law of
the State, from keeping therein offices for the purpose of discount and deposit. (National Batik of Fairhaven v. The Phwnix Warehousing Company, 6
Hun, 71).
(d) It is competent for a State by penal enactments to protect its citizens in
their dealings with national banking associations located within the State.
(State v. Fuller, 34 Conn., 280; see also Taxation and Jurisdiction.)
II. POWERS AND LIABILITIES.

1. IMPLIED POWERS:

To the enumerated powers of national banking associations are to be superadded all the powers incidental to the business of banking. (Pattison v.
Syracuse National Bank, 80 N.Y., 82.)

2. AS TO COLLATERAL SECURITIES:

(a) A national banking association may take stock of a corporation as 7collateral security for a loan. (Shoemaker v. The National Mechanics Bank, 2
Abb. U. S., 416; Canfieldv. The State National Bank of Minneapolis, U. S.
C. C. (Dist.Minn.), I Northwestern Reporter, 173.)
93




94

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

2. As TO COLLATERAL SECURITIES—Continued.

(b) And it may take for such purpose the stock of another national banking
association. (National Bank v. Case, 99 U. S., 628.)
NOTK.—But this point was not necessary to the decision of the case.
(c) A national banking association may take a pledge of personal chattels as
security for a loan. (Pittsburg Locomotive and Car Works v. State National
Bank of Keokuk, U. S. C. C. (Eighth Circuit, 1875), 2 Cent. L. J., 692.)
(d) A national banking association may take as security for a loan the indorsement of a married woman, charging her separate estate. Such security is
to be treated as personal security, within the meaning of the banking law,
and not as a mortgage. (Third National Bank v. Blake, 73 N. Y., 260).
(e) A national banking association may take as collateral security for a loan
a warehouse receipt for merchandise. (Cleveland, Brown fy Co., v. Shoeman,
40 Ohio St., 176.)
(/) A national banking association may take as security for a loan the stock
of a corporation whose entire capital is vested in real estate. Such a loan
does not amount to a lending upon mortgage. (Baldwin v. Canfield, 26
Minn., 43.)
(g) An agreement by a national banking association to the effect that, in case
a note discounted by it shall not be paid, a mortgage given by the maker
to his indorser shall inure to the benefit of the association, is not inhibited
by the national banking law. (First National Bank v. Haire, 36 Iowa, 443 j
see also National Bank v. Matthews, 98 U. S., 621.)
(h) A national banking association having taken a mortgage on real estate to
secure a debt previously contracted may, in order to protect itself, pay off
a prior lien on the said real estate; and the lien which it thus acquires it
may enforce. (Ornn v. Merchants' National Bank, 16 Kans., 341; Holmes v.
Boyd, 90 Ind,, 332.)
(i) Where a national banking association has taken collaterals to secure a loan,
and, after the loan has been repaid, holds them to secure future advances,
it is not a gratuitous bailee; and it is responsible for the loss of such collaterals occasioned by its lack of ordinary care and diligence, though at
the time the bailor was not indebted to it. (Third National Bank of Baltimore v. Boyd, 44 Md., 47.)
3. SPECIAL DEPOSITS:

(a) A national banking association may receive special deposits. The provision in section 5228, Revised Statutes, authorizing an association "to deliver
special deposits" implies that it may receive them as a part of its legitimate
business; and this implication is as effectual as an express declaration to
the same effect would have been. (National Bank v. Graham, 100 U. S.,
699.)
(b) National banking associations have power to receive special deposits either
gratuitously or otherwise. (Pattison v. Syracuse National Bank, 80 N. Y., 82.)
(c) But the executive officers of an association can not bind it as a gratuitous
bailee, unless they have a special authority from the board of directors so
to do, or there exists a general custom or usage to that effect. (First National Bank of Lyons v. Ocean National Bank, 60 N. Y., 278.)
4. GOVERNMENT SECURITIES:

(a) National banking associations can engage in the business of dealing in and
exchanging Government securities. (Van Leuven v. First National Bank,
54 N. r.,671; Yerkes v. National Bank of Port Jervis,69 N. Y.,383; Leach
Y.Hale,31 Iowa, 69.)
(b) And where an association receives United States bonds of one class for the
purpose of having them converted into bonds of another class, it is not a
mere mandatary, but is responsible for the failure to deliver the bonds on
demand. (Leach v. Hale, supra.)
5. CERTIFIED CHECK:

A national banking association may "certify" a check. A " certified" check
is not within the meaning of section 5183, Revised Statutes, which prohibits the issuing of post-notes or any notes to circulate as money other
than such as are authorized by the national banking law. (Merchants1
National Bank v. State National Bank, 10 Wall., 604.)
6. PURCHASING CHECK:

A national bank may buy a check drawn upon another bank ; and whether the
check is payable to order or to bearer is immaterial. {First National Bank
of Rochester v. Harris, 108 Mass.} 514.)



REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

95

7. STOCK :

(a) A national banking association, in the compromise of a claim growing out
of its legitimate business, may take railroad stock. (First National Bank of
Charlotte v. National Exchange Bank of Baltimore, 92 U. S., 1'22.)
(b) And when necessary to do so, it may pay the difference between the value
of the stock and the amount of the claim. (Ibid.)
(c) A national banking association may take and hold the coupons of municipal bonds, and may maintain actions thereon. (First National Bank of North
Bennington v. Town of Bennington, U. S. C. C. (Dist. Vt.), Browne''s N. B.
Cas.j 437; see also Lyons v. Lyons National Bank, 19 Blatch., 279.)
8. DEPOSITS TO SECURE PERFORMANCE OP CONTRACT :

A national banking association may receive a deposit to be held by it as security for the faithful performance of a contract between the depositor and
another. (Bushnell v. The Chautauqua County National Bank, 10 Run, 378.)
NOTE.—But the court put the decision upon the further ground that even were
the contract ultra vires, the association, having received the deposit, was
estopped from setting up its want of power.
9. LOANS IN EXCESS OF ONE-TENTH CAPITAL:

(a) Sec. 5200, Revised Statutes, which provides that the total liabilities to
any association of any person, etc., shall not exceed one-tenth part of the
capital stock paid in, was intended only for the guidance of the association, and, though its franchises may be liable to forfeiture for violation of
the law, the association may recover of the borrower the full amount of
the loan. (Gold Mining Company v. Rocky Mountain National Bank, 96 U.
S., 640; O'Hare v. Second National Bank of Titusville, 77 Penn. St., 96; Shoemaker v. The National Mechanics' Bank, 2 Abb. U. S., 416; Stewart v. National Union Bank of Maryland, 2 Abb. U. S., 424.)
(b) A note is not illegal because at the time it was discounted by the association the maker was indebted to the association in a sum equal to more than
one-tenth part of its capital. (O'FLare v. Second National Bank of Titusville,
supra.)
(c) And a court of equity will not enjoin an association, at the instance of the
borrower, from transferring to innocent third persons notes and securities,
on the ground that the notes represent part of a loan made in excess of 10
per cent of the capital of the association. (Elder v. First National Bank of
Ottawa, 12 Kans., 238.)
(d) Where a State bank makes a loan to one person of an amount in excess of
one-tenth part of its capital, and is afterward converted into a national
bank, it may, after conversion, extend the time for payment of such loan
without violating section 5200, Revised Statutes. (Allen v. The First National Bank of Xenia, 23 Ohio St., 97.)
10. REAL ESTATE :

(a) Where a national banking association acquires real estate which it is not
authorized to take, the conveyance to it is not void, but only voidable.
And the title of the association to such real estate is good until assailed
in a direct proceeding by the Government. (Reynolds v. Crawfordsville
Bank, 112 U. S., 405 ; see also National BankY. Matthews, 98 U. S., 621; National Bankv. Whitney, 103 U. S., 99; Sivopev. Leffingwell, 105 U. S.f 3 ;
Fortier v. New Orleans Bank, 112 JJ. S., 439.)
(b) The amount of real estate which a national banking association may purchase to secure a pre-existing debt is not limited to the exact amount of
the debt, but as much may be purchased as is necessary to secure the debt
due, so long as the security of such debt is the real object of the purchase.
(Upton v. National Bank of South Reading, 120 Mass., 153.)
(c) Where the purpose is to secure a debt previously contracted, a national
banking association may take a conveyance of real estate worth more than
the debt, and pay the difference between the debt and the value of the
property. (Libby v. Union National Bank, 99 III., 622.)
(d) Where a national banking association sells real estate it may take a mortgage thereon to secure the payment of the purchase-money. (New Orleans
National Bank v. Raymond, 29 La. Ann., 355.)
11. CERTIFICATES OF DEPOSIT:

National banking associations may issue certificates of deposit. Such certificates are not post-notes within the prohibition of section 5183, Revised
Statutes. (Huntv. Appellant, Supreme Court of Mass., May 7, Ih86; Bid
dU v. First National Bank, U. S. C. C. (W. D. Penn.), 27 Fed. Rep., 503.)



9G

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

12. LIEN ON DIVIDENDS

An association has equitable lien upon dividends declared for any just debt
due to it from the shareholders. {Hager v. Union National Bank, 63 Me.,
509.)
13. CONTRACTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF OLD CORPORATION:

(a) Where a State bank has been converted into a national banking associa.
tion it may enforce all contracts made with it while a State corporation.
(CityNational Bank Y. Phelps, 97 N. Y., 44.)
(b) And it is liable, after the conversion, for all the obligations of the oM institution. (Coffee v. The National Bank of Missouri, 46 Mo., 140; KeUey v.
The National Bank of Crawford, 69 Penn. St~, 426.)
(c) A national banking association organized as the successor of a State bank
may take and hold the assets of the bank whose place it takes, though there
was not in form a conversion from a State to a national corporation, but
the organization of a new corporation. (Bank v. Mclntire, 40 Ohio St.,
528.)
(d) And such association will be liable to the depositors of the former bank.
(Eans v. Exchange Bank, 79 Mo., 182.)
14. PLACE OF BUSINESS :

*

(a) The provisions requiring "the usual business" of the association to be
transacted " a t an office or banking-house in the place specified in its organization certificate " must be construed reasonably; and a part of the
legitimate business of the association which can not7 be transacted at the
banking-house may be done elsewhere. (Merchants Bank v. State Bank, 10
Wall, 604.)
(6) Although the general business of a national banking association is to be
transacted at its place of business, yet if the association is fully advised
of the facts, and does not object, and there is no fraud, its officers, when
acting within the general scope of their authority, may bind it by acts done
at another place. (Burton v. Burley, 9 Biss., 253.)
(c) Under Revised Statutes, section 5190, providing that "the usual business
of each national banking association shall be transacted at an office or
banking-house located in the place specified m its organization certificate,"
a national bank can not make a valid contract for the cashing of checks
upon it at a different place from that of its residence, through the agency
of another bank. (Armstrong v. National Bank of Springfield, 38 Fed. Bet).,
883.) ^
(d) Whatever the terms of such an arrangement, being made before the date of
the drawee bank's certificate of authorization, it is invalid under Revised
Statutes, section 5136, providing that no banking association " shall transact any business except vsuch as is incidental and necessarily preliminary
to its organization, until it has been authorized by the Comptroller of the
Currency to commence the business of banking." (Ibid.)
15. CIRCULATING NOTES:

The circulating notes of a national banking association are valid, though they
do not bear the imprint of the seal of the Treasury. ..Such imprint was
intended to be simply evidence of the contract, and forms no part of the
contract itself. ( United States v. Bennett, 17 Blatch., 357.)
16. BUSINESS OF LIQUIDATING ASSOCIATION:

After an association goes into liquidation there is no authority on the part of
its officers to transact any business in its name so as to bind its shareholders, except that which is implied in the duty of liquidation, unless
such authority has been expressly conferred by the shareholders. (Richmond v. Irons, 121 U. S., 27.)
111. ULTRA VIRES.
1, DEALING IN STOCKS:

(a) A national banking association is not authorized to act as a broker or agent
in the purchase of bonds and stocks. (First National Bank of Allentown v.
Eoch, 89 Penn. St., 324 ; Weckler v. The First National Bank of Hagerstown
42 Jtfd., 581.)
v
(b) A national banking association can not deal in stocks. The prohibition is
to be implied from the failure to grant the power. (First National Bank v.
National Exchange Bank, 92 U. S., 122.)
NOTE,—But see, as to its power to deal in Government securities, Powers, 4.

2. PURCHASING NEGOTIABLE PAPER :

A national banking association can not purchase negotiabl? paper. (Lazear v.
National Union Bank of Baltimore, 52 Md., 78; First National Bank of Rochester v. Pier son, 24 Minn., 140; see also Farmers and Mechanics' Bank v. Baldwin, 23 Minn., 198. But see Smith v. The Exchange Bank of Pittsburg, 26
Ohio St., 141.;
3. LENDING CREDIT:

{a) A national banking association can not lend its credit. (Johnston v. Charlottesville National Bank, 3 Hughes, 657 ; Seligman v. Charlottesville National
Bank, 3 Hughes, 647.)
(b) A national banking association can not guaranty the paper of a customer
for his accommodation. (Seligman v. Charlottesville National Bank, supra.)
(c) The accommodation paper of a national banking association is void in the
hands of one who takes it with knowledge of its character. (Johnston v.
Charlottesville National Banks supra.)
4. MORTGAGER ON REAL ESTATE:

(a) National banking associations are by implication prohibited from taking
mortgages on real estate as security for contemporaneous loans. (National
Bank v. Matthews, 98 U. S , 621; Fowler v. Scully, 72 Penn. St., 456; Kansas
Valley National Bank v. Roivell, 2 Dill, 371; Commonwealth Bank v. Clark,
4 Mo., 59; Crocker v. Whitney, 71 N. Y., 161; Fridley v. Bowen, 87III., 151.)
(b) But where such security has been taken, no one but the Government can
be heard to complain that the association has exceeded its powers. (National Bank v. Matthews, supra ; National Bank v. Whitney, 103 U. S., 99;
Swopev. Leffingwell, 105 U. S., 3; Reynolds v. National Bank, 112 U. £.,405;
Fortier v. National Bank, 112 U. S., 439.)
NOTE.—These decisions overrule, on this point, Kansas Valley National Bank v.
Rowell, 2 Dill., 371; Crockery. Whitney, supra; Fowler v. Scully, supra;
Matthews v. Skinner, 62 Mo., 329; Woods v. People's National Bank of Pittsburg, 83 Penn. St., 57; Fridley v. Bowen, supra.
5. WHEN ASSOCIATION CAN NOT SET UP WANT OF POWER:

Where a national banking association has entered into a contract which it was
not authorized to make, a party who has enjoyed the benefit of sujch contract can not question its validity. (Casey v. La Socie'te' de Credit Mobilier,
2 Woods, 77; German National Bank v. Meadowcroft, 95 III., 124.)
IV. STOCK.
1. PURCHASING ITS OWN STOCK:

Where a national banking association purchases shares of its own stock, and
divides them among its directors, to whom the shares are transferred upon
the stock books, the transaction is void, and no title passes. (Meyers v.
Valley National Bank, U.S.D. C. (E. Dist. Mo.), 13 National Bankruptcy
Register, 34.)
2. LIEN ON STOCK:

(a) A national banking association can not acquire a lien on the stock of a
shareholder. And a by-law prohibiting a transfer until all liabilities of the
shareholder to the association are discharged, or a provision to that effect
in the certificates of stock, is void. (Bullard v. National Bank, 18 Wall.,
589; Bank v. Lanier, 11 Wall., 369; Conklin v. The Second National Bank, 45
N. Y., 655.)
(b) A national banking association can not take a pledge of its stock to secure
a deposit made by it with another bank. Such a transaction amounts to a
lending upon the security of its own shares. (Bank v. Lanier, supra.)
(c) Though a bank is prohibited from lending money upon the security of its
own shares, yet, if the shares have been sold and the proceeds applied to
the payment of the debt, the courts will not aid the shareholder to recover
the value of the shares. He can dispute the validity of the transaction
only while the contract is executory, and the security still subsists in the
possession of the bank. (National Bank ofXeniav. Stewart, 107 U. S, 676.)
3. MAY BE ATTACHED :

The stock of a shareholder indebted to it may be attached by the association
and sold on execution. (Hager v. Union National Bank, 63 Me., aO9.)

4. CAPITAL SET FREE BELONGS TO SHAREHOLDERS:

When a national banking association reduces its capital stock the amount of
capital thus released belongs to the shareholders pro rata and must be returned to them; and it can not be retained by the association for a surplus.
(Seeleij v. New York National Exchange Bank, 8 Daly, 400; S. C , 4 All. N.
C, 61; affirmed, 78 N. Y., 608.
5. CONTRACT TO GIVE SHARES FOR BUSINESS :

Where an association has made or ratified a contract to give a person a certain
number of the shares of its stock, upon condition that he will continue to
do his business with it, and derives the benefit from this contract, the
other party may recover of the association the value of the shares. (Mich
v. State National Bank of Lincoln, 7 Nelr., 231.)
6. TRANSFER OF STOCK :

(a) The transfer of shares in national banking associations is not governed by
different rules from those which are ordinarily applied to the transfer of
shares in other corporate bodies. (Johnson v. Laflin, 103 U. S.,800.)
(b) The entry of the transaction in the books of the association ia required, not
for the translation of the title, but for the protection of the parties, and
others dealing with the association, and to enable it to know who are its
stockholders. (Ibid.)
(c) A shareholder in a national bank, while it is a going concern, has the absolute right, in the absence of fraud, to make a bona fide and actual sale and
transfer of his shares, at any time, to any person capable in law of purchasing and holding the same, and of assuming the transferor's liabilities
in respect thereto; and this right is not, in such cases, subject to the control of the directors or other stockholders. (Johnson v. Laflin, 5 Dill., 65.)
(d) Under the pretense of prescribing the manner thereof, an association can
not clog the transfer with useless restrictions. (Johnson v. Laflin, supra.)
(e) When a shareholder, acting in good faith, delivers his certificates of stock,
with a blank power of attorney for making the transfer, and receives the
purchase-money, the sale is complete and the title passes. (Ibid.)
(/) Where a cashier, who is intrusted by the directors with the duty of transferring the stock of the association, refuses, for insufficient reasons, to
transfer shares, and the association subsequently becomes insolvent, the
owner of the shares may maintain an action against the receiver for the
injury sustained. (Case v. Citizens' Bank, 100 U. S., 446.)
(g) Where a shareholder who has sold his stock has delivered to the bank the
certificates of stock and a power of attorney with the request that the
transfer be made upon the books of the bant, and has had no reason to
suppose that such transfer was not made, he will not, should the bank
afterward become insolvent, be held liable as a shareholder, although he
still appears as such on the books of the bank. (Whitney v. Butler] 118
*7.S.,655.)
(h) But where the president of the bank is himself the purchaser of the stock,
then the delivery of the certificates and power of attorney to him with the
request to make the transfer upon the books of the bank would not be sufficient to discharge the seller from liability as a stockholder. (Richmond v.
Irons, 121 U.S., 27.)
(i) Where a shareholder of a national bank makes a bona fide sale of his stock,
and goes with the purchaser to the bank, indorses the certificate, and delivers it to the cashier of the bank, with directions to make the transfer on
the books, he has done all that is incumbent upon him to discharge his
liability, and he is not liable, though the cashier failed to make the transfer, upon the subsequent suspension of the bank, for an assessment made
by the Comptroller of the Currency, under Revised Statutes, section 5151,
to pay the bank's debts. (Hayes v. Shoemaker, 39 Fed. Bep., 319.)
7. SUBSCRIPTIONS TO INCREASE OF CAPITAL STOCK:

(a) Where one subscribes for shares in the increase of the capital of a national
banking association in a certain amount, such subscription and payment
are upon the implied condition that the increase shall be in the exact
amount so fixed; and if such amount is changed, the subscriber may avoid
the subscription and recover the amount paid in. (Eaton v. Pacific Bank,
144 Mass., 260.)
(b) And the certificate of the Comptroller of the Currency that the amount of
the increase in another sum has been paid in, which amount includes what
was paid by the dissenting subscriber, will not be conclusive upon such
subscriber. (Ibid,)



REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

99

7, SUBSCRIPTIONS TO INCREASE OF CAPITAL STOCK—Continued.

(c) But if such subscriber has assented to or ratified the change he will be held
a shareholder. (Delano v. Butler', 118 U. S., 634.)
(d) National banks have no authority to increase their capital stock except as
provided by Revised Statutes, sec. 5142, and act of Congress May 1, 1886;
and where an increase is attempted to be made without obtaining the consent of two-thirds of the stock, the payment in fall of the amount of such
increase, and the certificate and approval of the Comptroller of the Currency, as required by those statutes, the proceedings are invalid, and preliminary subscriptions to such increase can not be enforced. (Armstrong
v. Stanage et al., 37 Fed. Eep., 508.)
(e) A subscriber who has made payments on his subscription to the proposed
increase believing that the statutory requirements would be complied with
is entitled to have the amount thereof allowed as a claim against the
assets of the bank in the receiver's hands, (ibid.)
(/) When the previous proceedings looking to an increase in the capital stock
of a national bank have been regular and all that are requisite, and a
stockholder subscribes to his proportionate part of the increase and pays
his subscription, the law does not attach to the subscription a condition
that it is to be void if the whole increase authorized be not subscribed;
although there may be cases in which equity would interfere to protect
him in case of a material deficiency. (Aspinwall v. Butler, 133 U. S., 595.)
(g) The Comptroller of theCurrency has power by law to assent to an increase
in the capital stock of a national bank less than that originally voted by
the directors but equal to the amount actually subscribed and paid for by
the shareholders under that vote. (Md.)
(h) Where one subscribes for shares in an increase of capital stock of a
national bank and pays for the same without waiting to see whether the
whole amount of the increase is taken, he is bound by such subscription
#and payment, though the amount of the increase is afterward reduced by
"the bank and the Comptroller of the Currency. (Butler v. Eaton, Supreme
Court U. S., May 25, 1891.)
8. SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE OF CONTRACT TO SELL:

A specific performance of a contract to sell the stock of a national banking association will not be enforced in favor of a purchaser who places his claim
for equitable relief upon the ground that he desires to obtain control of the
association. Such an object is contrary to public policy. (FolVs Appeal,
81 Perm. St.} 434.)
V. SHAREHOLDERS.
1. ESTOPPED TO DENY INCORPORATION :

A shareholder who has held himself oat to the world as such is estopped to
deny that the association was legally incorporated. (Casey v. Galli, 94 U.
S., 673; WheelocJc v.Kost, 77 III., 296.)
2. INDIVIDUAL LIABILITY:

(a) The question whether there is a deficiency of assets, and when it is neces"
sary to enforce the individual liability of shareholders, is for the Comptroller to determine; and his decision in this matter is final and conclusive*
(Kennedy v. Gibson, 8 Wall, 498; National Bank v. Case, 99 U. S., 628',
Casey v. Galli, 94 U. 8., 673.)
(b) The amount contributed by each shareholder should bear the same proportion to the whole amount of the deficit as his own stock bears to the whole
amount of the capital stock at its par value. And the solvent shareholders
can not be made to contribute more than their proportion to make good
the deficiency caused by the insolvency of other shareholders. (United
States v. Knox, 102 U. S., 422.)
(c) A shareholder who disposes of his stock will continue to be liable thereon
until the transfer is noted on the books of the association. (Bowdell v.
Farmers and Merchants' National Bank of Baltimore, U. S, C. C. (D. Md.,
1877), Browne's N. B. Cas., 147.)
(d) The individual liability of a shareholder adheres to his estate after his
death until his place as a member of the association is taken by some new
shareholder. (Davis v. Weed, U. S. D. C. (Dist. Conn.), reported 44 Conn.,
569.)
(e) The receiver has a valid claim against the estate generally of a deceased
shareholder who died prior to the insolvency of the bank, but whose stock
has not been transferred. (Richmond v. Irons, 121 U. S. 27; Davis v. Weed,
supra.)



100

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

2. INDIVIDUAL LIABILITY—Continued.

(/) And the fact that the title to the stock of a deceased shareholder vests in
his administrator does not relieve the estate from the burden of an assessment. (Davis v. Weed, supra.)
(g) Nor will the fact that the administration is complete, and all the assets
have been distributed, defeat an action brought to recover the assessment.
(Ibid. But see Witters v. Soivles.)
(h) The United States district court has jurisdiction of au action at law brought
by the receiver of a national bank to recover an assessment made upon a
stockholder, and the action may be maintained in such event against the
executor of a deceased stockholder. (Stephens v. Bern-ays, U. S. C. C, E. D.
Mo.)
(i) One who appears on the books of the association as the owner of shares of
its stock is individually liable, though he hold the stock merely as collateral
security. (National Bank v. Case, 99 U. S.,628; Moore v. Jones, 3 Woods,
53;Bowdell v. Farmers and Merchants' National Bank of Baltimore, supra;
Hale v. Walker, 31 Iowa, 344; JVheelock v. Kost, supra.)
(j) But a pledgee of shares of stock in a national bank who in good faith and
with no fraudulent intent takes the security for his benefit in the name of
an irresponsible trustee for the avowed purpose of avoiding individual liability as a shareholder, and who exercises none of the powers or rights of
a stockholder, incurs no liability as such to creditors of the bank in case of
its failure. (Anderson, Receiver, v. Warehouse Company, 111 U.S., 479.)
(k) And where stock has been transferred as collateral security for a loan, with
the understanding that in case of default in the payment of the loan the shares
shall be sold, the transferee, upon default made, and before the bank closes
its doors, may sell the stock for a nominal consideration, though his purpose be to avoid a personal liability; and such a transaction can not be set
aside as a fraud upon the creditors of the association. (Magruder v. Colston,
44 Md., 349.)
NOTE.—The court put the decision upon the ground that the sale was in pursuance of a stipulation which formed a part of the contract between the
original owner and his transferee. See also Holyoke Bank v. Burnham, 11
Cush., 187, upon the authority of which the Maryland case was decided.
(I) If the trusteeship of one who holds stock in trust does not appear upon the
books of the association he will be individually liable. (Davis v. Essex
Baptist Society, U. S. D. C. (Dist. Conn.), reported 44 Conn., 58'2.)
(MI) 11 transfer of shares for the purpose of avoiding liability, though made
A
out and out," is void. National Bank v. Case, supra; Bowden v. Santos,
1 Hughes, 158.)
(n) And where a shareholder, who has knowledge of the insolvent condition of
the bank, transfers his shares, without consideration, to a person unable to
respond to the assessment, the transfer may beset aside and the individual
liability of the transferrer enforced. (Bowden v. Johnson, 107 U. S., 251.)
(o) The real owner of the stock is liable as a stockholder, though when he porchased the stock he had it transferred upon the books to another. (Davis
v. Stevens, 17 Blatch., 259.)
NOTE.—The case of the owner of the stock is thus different from that of a
pledgee. (See Anderson v. Warehouse Company, supra.)
(p) Where shareholders have assessed themselves to the amount of the par value
of the stock for the purpose of restoring impaired capital, the contributions
made in pursuance of such assessment, though all used in paying the debts
of the association, will not so operate as to discharge the shareholders from
their individual liability. (Delano v. Butler, 118 U. S., 634.)
(q) The individual liability of the shareholders of an insolvent association may
be enforced for the purpose of paying all of its liabilities, and not merely
for the purpose of paying its " debts," technically so called. (Stanton v.
Wilkeson, 8 Ben., 357.)
(r) The individual liability of the stockholders must be restricted in its meaning to such contracts, debts, and engagements of the association as have
been duly coutracted in the ordinary course of its business. And, therefore, creditors of an association who make settlements after the association is
put into liquidation and receive from the president payment of their claims
in paper of the association, or the individual notes of the president himself,
indorsed or guaranteed in the name of the association, are not to be considered as creditors of the association entitled to subject the stockholders
to individual liability; for these are new contracts. (Richmond v. Irons,
121 U.S.,27.)



REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

101

2. INDIVIDUAL LIABILITY—Continued.

(s) The individual liability of the stockholders is en forcible only in behalf of
all the creditors, and any security given by a stockholder for his liability
in this respect should likewise be for the benefit of all the creditors. Accordingly, a mortgage of all the individual property of a stockholder, made
after the bank has closed its doors, for the purpose of securing a single
depositor, is void as against a judgment obtained against such stockholder
in an action by the receiver to recover the amount of his individual liability. (Gatch v. Fitch, 34 Fed, Rep., 566.)
(/) Where a married woman is by the State law capable of holding stock in a
national bank in her own right, she is liable to an assessment upon her
shares, though the law of the State does not authorize married women to
bind themselves by contracts for the payment of money. The law annexes
her obligations by its own force ; no act or capacity to act on her part is
required. {Witters v. Sowles, 35 Fed. Rep. 640; S. G. 32 Fed, Rep., 767.)
(n) The coverture of a married woman, who is a shareholder in a national bank,
does not prevent the receiver of the bank from recovering judgment against
her for the amount of an assessment levied upon the shareholders equally
and rataibly under the statute. (Keyser v. Hitz, 133 U. S., 138.)
(v) While it is undoubtedly the rule as regards stockholders that one put upon
the books as a stockholder without his consent can not be held for any liability in respect to such stock, yet where the person to whom the stock is
transferred is a director of the bank, and is concerned in the management
of its affairs, he must be presumed to have knowledge of the fact that the
stock stood in his name, and if he has not repudiated the transfer to himself, is liable as the holder of sucli stock. (Brown v. Finn, 34 Fed. Rep.,
1240
(w) In such case the mere return of the dividends paid upon the stock to the
person by wl.-om the transfer was made will not be a sufficient repudiation
thereof. (Ibid.)
(x) The State statute of limitations applies to a suit brought by the receiver of
a national bank against a shareholder to recover an assessment upon his
stock to pay the debts of the bank. (Butler v. Poole, 44 Fed. Rep.,1)86.)
3. WHEN LIABILITY DISQUALIFIES FROM VOTING:

The provision of section 5144, Revised Statutes, which disqualifies shareholders
" whose liability is past due and unpaid " from voting at meetings of shareholders, applies only to liability for unpaid subscriptions for stock. (United
States ex rel. v. Barry, 36 Fed. Rep., 246.)
4. RIGHT TO INSPECT BOOKS :

Code of Alabama, 1886, section 1677, which provides that stockholders of all
corporations have the right to have access to, and inspection and examination of, the book, records, and papers of the corporation at all reasonable
and proper times, applies to national banks located within the State; and
mandamus will lie against the officer having custody of the books to enforce
the right. (Winter v. Baldwin, 7 So., Rep., 734.)
VI. OFFICERS.
1. TENURE OF OFFICE :

(a) The officers of a national banking association can hold their positions only
by the tenure specified in section 5136, Revised Statutes, viz, the pleasure
ofthe board of directors. (Harrington v. First National Bank of Chittenango,
S. C. N. r., 1873, Thomp. N. B. Cas., 761; see also Taylor v. Button, 43 Barb.,
195.)
(b) Directors of national banking associations may remove the president, both
under the law of Congress and the articles of association, where the latter
so provide. The power exists, though the association has adopted no bylaws. (Taylor v. Mutton,supra.)
•;?. BONDS OF OFFICERS:

(a) It is not necessary that national banking associations shall signify their approval ofthe official bonds of their officers by memoranda entered upon the
journals or minutes of the directors. The acceptance is to be presumed from
the retention ofthe bond, and from the fact that the officer is permitted to
enter upon or continue in tne discharge of his duties. (Grover v. The Lebanon National Bank, 10 Bush.t 23.)



102

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

2. BONDS OF OFFICERS—Continued.

(b) Where the sureties of an officer can reasonably be presumed to have been
deceived by the statement of the condition of the bank published just
prior to the execution of the bond, and to have been led to think that there
was no deficit, whereas there had been a misapplication of a large part of
the funds by the officer whose bondsmen they became, which fact would
have been ascertained had the directors exercised ordinary dilligence, the
sureties are discharged from their liability. (Grover v. The Lebanon National Bank, supra.)
3. DIRECTORS MUST ACT AS A BOARD :

The election of an individual as a director does not constitute him an agent of
the corporation with authority to act separately and independently of his
fellow members. It is the board duly convened and acting as a unit that
is made the representative of the association. The assent or determination
of the members of the board acting separately and individually is not the
assent of the corporation. The law proceeds upon the theory that the directors shall meet and counsel with each other, and that any determination
affecting the association shall be arrived at and expressed only after a consultation at a meeting of the board, attended by at least a majority of its
members. (National Bank v. Drake, 35 Kans., 564.)
4. BORROWING MONEY OF ASSOCIATION:

An officer may, in the ordinary course of business, borrow money of the association. (Blair v. First National Bank of Mansfield, U. S. C. C. (N. D. Ohio),
1877, 10 Chicago Legal News, 84.)
5. LIABILITY FOR VIOLATIONS OF LAW:

(a) All directors who participate in and assent to a loan in excess of one-tenth
of the capital of the bank, in violation of section 5*200, Revised Statutes,
will be liable to the bank for all damages sustained by it in consequence of
such loan. (Witters v. Sowles, 31 Fed. Rep., 1.)
(b) If a cashier, without authority from the directors so to do, makes a loan in
excess of one-tenth of the capital of the association, he will be liable, in
case of loss, for the amount of the excess. (Second National Bank of Oswego
v. Burtj XIVNew York Weekly Digest, 290. Reversed in court of appeals
on ground that transaction was discount of bill of exchange drawn against
actually existing values, 93 N. F., 233.)
(c) The directors of a national bank will not be held liable for loss occasioned
to the bank through the frauds of a co-director in which they had no part,
and which were perpetrated without their connivance or knowledge. It
is not sufficient to charge them with liability .that the frauds might have
been prevented by the exercise on their part of a proper degree of supervision over the affairs of the bank. (Movius v. Lee, U. S. C. C. (N. D. N. Y.),
30[Fed. Rep.,298.)
(d) Directors of a national bank are " officers" within the meaning of Revised
Statutes, United States, section 5209, which makes it a misdemeanor for
bank officers to make false entries in any book, report, or statement of the
bank, with intent to deceive any of its officers. ( United Stales v. Means et al.,
42 Fed. Rep.,599.)
(e) The personal liability of directors of a national bank for violation of
Revised Statutes, United States, section 5204, by declaring dividends in
excess of net profits, and of section 5200, for loaning to separate persons,
firms, or corporations amounts exceeding one-tenth of the capital stock,
can not be enforced in an action at law. (Welles v. Graves, 41 Fed. Rejy., 459.)
(/) Under Revised Statutes, United States, section 5239, providing that if the
directors of a national bank shall violate any of the provisions of the title
relating to the organization and management of banks, the franchises of
the bank shall be forfeited, such violation, however, to be determined by
a proper court of the United States in a suit therefor by the Comptroller,
and that in cases of such violation every director participating therein shall
be personally liable for all damages which the bank, its shareholders, or any
other person shall have sustained in consequence thereof, the Comptroller
can not authorize the receiver to bring suit, under section 5234, to enforce
such personal liability, until it has been adjudged by a proper courtthat such
acts have been done as authorize a forfeiture of the charter. (Ibid.)
(g) The right to maintain an action under Revised Statutes, United States, section 5239, to recover from a bank director the damages sustained by his bank
in consequence of excessive loans made by him while serving in the capacity of director, is not affected by the fact that the Comptroller has or has
not procured a forfeiture of the bank's charter. (Stephens v. Overstolz, 43
 Fed. Rep., 771.)


REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

5. LIABILITY FOR VIOLATIONS OF LAW—Continued.

(/<) For services performed by the district attorney in bringing a suit against
a uational bank, and obtaining a forfeiture of its charter, he is not entitled to more than $10, the fees prescribed by section 824, there being no
other law of the United States giving a compensation to a district attorney for such services. (Bashaw v. United States, 47 Fed. Rep., 40.)
(i) A stockholder of an insolvent national bank for which a receiver has been
appointed can not maintain an action at law against the directors for the
purpose of making them personally liable for the mismanagement of the
bank, but the action must be brought by the receiver. (Howe v. Barney,
45 Fed. Rep., 668.)
(j) Revised Statutes, United States, sections 5234 and 5239, prescribing the
method of enforcing the liability of the directors of national banks for violation of the banking law, are exclusive of other remedies, and a creditor of an
insolvent bank, for which a receiver has been appointed* can not sue its directors for the purpose of making them personally liable for the mismanagement of the bank. (National Exchange Bank v. Peters et ah, 44 Fed.
Rep., 13.)
6. DIRECTORS OF CONVERTED BANKS:

(a) When a State bank is converted into a national banking association all of
the directors at the time will continue to be the .directors of the association until others are appointed or elected, though some of them may not
have joined in the execution of the articles of association and organization certificate. (Lockivood v. The American National Rank, 9 R. /., 308.)
(b) And semble, that the directors of a bank at the time of its conversion into
a national banking association are not required to take the oath of directors. (Ibid.)
(c) But even were the oath required, a majority of all who were directors at
the time of the conversion, and not merely a majority of those who take
the oath, are necessary to constitute a quorum. (Ibid.)
7. RETIREMENT OF DIRECTORS :

(a) The law providing no particular mode by which a director is to resign
from the board, an oral resignation would be as good as any. (Movius v.
Lee, 30 Fed. Rep., 298.)
(b) The president being the head of the board, a resignation to him is a resignation to the board. (Ibid.)
(c) A director is not prohibited from resigning during the year. The apparent
purpose of the provision in regard to the term of office is to make it conform to the time of the new election, and not to absolutely require every
director to serve the full term. ^(Ibid.)
VII. INTEREST.
1. WHAT INTEREST ASSOCIATIONS MAY TAKE:

(a) The provision in section 30 of the act of 1864 "that where, by the law of
any State, a different rate is limited for banks of issue organized under
State laws, the rate so limited shall be allowed for associations organized
in any such State under the act," is enabling, and not restrictive; and,
therefore, a national banking association in any State may stipulate for
as high a rate of interest as by the laws of such State a natural person
may, although State banks of issue are restricted to a less rate. (Tiffany
v. National Bank of the State of Missouri, 18 Wall., 409.)
(6) But it is not to be inferred from Tiffany v. National Bank of Missouri that
whatever by the laws of the State is lawful for natural persons in acquiring title to negotiable paper by discount is lawful for national banks.
(National Bank v. Johnson, 104 U. S., 271.)
(c) The interest which a national banking association may charge is limited to
the rate allowed to the banks of the State generally ; and the fact that a
few of the State banks are specially authorized to take a higher rate is
not a warrant for a national banking association to do so. (Duncan v. First
National Bank of Mount Pleasant, U. S/D. C. ( W. D. Penn., 1878), 11 Bank
Mag., 787; Gruber v. First National Bankf 87 Penn. St., 468.)
(d) Where the State law does not limit the rate of interest which may be
charged on loans to corporations, a national banking association located
in that State can not charge more than 7 per cent interest on such loans.
(In re Wild, 11 Blatch., 243.)

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

1. WHAT INTEREST ASSOCIATIONS MAY TAKE—Continued.

(e) Where by the statutes of the State parties nre authorized to contract for
any rate of interest, national banking'associations in that State may likewise contract for any rate, and are not limited to 7 per cent. (Hinds v.
Marmelejo, 60 Cal., 229; National Bank v. Bruhn, 64 Texas, 571.)
2. ON CLAIMS AGAINST INSOLVENT AND LIQUIDATING ASSOCIATIONS :

(a) A depositor in a national banking association which has become insolvent
is entitled to interest on his deposit. (National Banlc of Commonwealth v.
Mechanics' National Bank, 94 U. S., 437.)
(b) He is entitled to interest from the date of the suspension_of payments ; and
no demand upon the association is necessary. (Chemical National Bank v.
Bailey, 12 Blatch., 480.)
(c) Claims, when proved to the satisfaction of the Comptroller, are upon the
same footing as if put in judgment, and therefore bear interest; and the
fact that, under certain circumstances, there might be thus a compounding
of interest will not defeat the right to interest. (National Bank of Commonwealth v. Mechanics' National Bank, supra.)
(d) But where a creditor has obtained judgment against an insolvent national
banking association for the full amount of his claim and interest, he is not
entitled to interest upon the face of the judgment, but only upon the amount
of the claim at the time of the failure. (White v. Knox, 111 U. S., 7-84.)
(e) The creditors of an insolvent national banking association in the hands of
a receiver are entitled to interest on their claims during the period of
administration. (Chemical National Bank v. Bailey, supra.)
(/) The assessments made by the Comptroller upon the shareholders of an insolvent association bear interest from the date of the order. (Casey v . Galli,
94 U. £.,673.)
(g) In the case of book accounts in favor of depositors, interest begins to run
against an association in liquidation from the date of the suspension of
business. (Richmond v. Irons, 121 U. S., 27.)
3. USURY:

(a) The usury laws of the States do not apply to national banking associations.
(Farmers and Mechanics' Bank v. Bearing, 91 U. S., 29; Central National
Bank v. Pratt, 115 if ass., 539; First National Bank v. Gorlinghouse, 22 Ohio
St., 492; Davis v. Randall,115 Mass., 547; Bintermister' Y. First National
Bank, 64 N. Y., 212.)
(b) And the remedies provided by the State for the taking of usury can not be
resorted to. (Farmers and Mechanics' Bank v. Bearing, supra; Wiley Y. Starbuck, 44 Ind., 298.)
(c) The taking of illegal interest by a national banking association does not
render the contract void. (Farmers and Mechanics' Bank v. Bearing, supra.)
(d) It does not invalidate an indorsement or a guaranty of the notes upon
which the usurious interest was paid. ( Oates v. First National Bank of
Montgomery, 100 U. £.,239; Lazear Y. National Union Bank of Baltimore, 52
Jftf.,78.)
(e) But usury destroys the interest-bearing power of the obligation; and there
will be no point of time from which it can bear interest. (Lucas v. Government National Bank, 78 Penn. St., 228.)
(/) The usury works a forfeiture of the entire interest accruing after maturity
and before judgment, as well as that which accrues before maturity.
(Shunkv. The First National Bank of Gailion, 22 Ohio St., 508.)
(g) The discounting of business paper by a national banking association at a
higher than the legal rate is usurious, though the law of the State fixes no
limit to the rate which natural persons may take for the discount or purchase of such paper. (Johnson x. National Bank of Gloversville, 74 N. Y.,
329; affirmed in National Bank v. Johnson, 104 U. S., 271.)
(h) By charging more than legal interest on overdrafts, a national banking
association loses the right to recover any interest at all. (Third National
Bank of Philadelphia v. Miller, 90 Penn. St., 241.)
(i) The liabilities of antecedent parties to a note or bill will not be affected by
the usurious character of the transaction between the payee and the association ; aud the association may recover the full amount of the note or bill
from the maker or acceptor. (Smith v. The Exchange Bank of Pittsburg, 26
Ohio St., 141.)
(j) Usurious interest which has been paid to a national banking association
can not be applied by way of payment or set-off in any action by the association to recover the amount of the loan. (Barnet v. Muncie National Bank,
98 U.S., 855.)



REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

105

3. USURY—Continued.
(A;) Nor can the penalty for taking the usurious interest be recovered by way of
counter-claim in such action, bat a separate action must be brought there*
for. {Ibid.)
NOTE.—This case overrules portions of the decisions in Lucas v. Government National Bank, supra; OverholtY. National Bank, 82 Penn. St., 490; Cake v.
The First National Bank of Lebanon, 83 Penn. St., 303.
(Z) A director is not by reason of his position estopped from setting up the defense of usury in an action brought against him by the association. {Batik
of Cadiz v. Slemons, 34 Ohio St., 142.)
(m) Where a national banking association has discounted notes for another
bank at a usurious rate of interest, the fact that the other bank has charged
illegal interest on those notes to its customers will not affect its right to
set up the defense of usury in an action by the association. {Third National
Bank of Philadelphia v. Miller, supra.)
{n) The amount which may be recovered from the association as a penalty is
twice the amount of interest paid, and not simply twice the amount in excess of the legal rate. {Crocker v. First National Bank of Chetopa, U. S. C.
C. {Eighth Circuit), 3 Am. L. T. [N. S.], 350; Overholt v. National Bank of
Mount Pleasant, 82 Penn. St., 490 ; see also Barnet v. Muncie National Bank,
supra.)
VIII. INSOLVENT ASSOCIATIONS.
1. NOT SUBJECT TO BANKRUPT ACT:

National banking associations were not subject to the bankrupt act while that
act was in force. {In re Manufacturers* National Bank, 5 Biss., 499.)
2. WHAT CONSTITUTES INSOLVENCY :

The term " insolvency," as used in section 5242, Revised Statutes, forbidding
transfer of the assets of national banking associations after, or in contemplation of, such insolvency, has the same meaning as it had when applied
to traders in the bankrupt act; that is, it does not mean an absolute inability of a debtor to pay his debt at some future time, upon a settlement
and winding up of his affairs, but a present inability to pay in the ordinary
course of business. {Case v. Citizens' Bank of Louisiana, 2 Woods, 23; Market Bank v. Pacific National Bank, 30 Hun, 50.)
3. ASSETS A TRUST FUND:

Upon the appointment of a re3eiver all the assets of the association become in
his hands a trust fund which the statute of limitations does not touch or
affect. {Middle v. First National Baiik, U. S. C. C. {W. D. Penn.), 27 Fed.
Rep., 503.)
NOTE.—But this point was not necessary to tho decision of the case, for suits
against insolvent corporations are by a law of Pennsylvania expressly excluded from the operation of the statute.
4. UNITED STATES HAS NO PRIORITY:

(a) Section 3466, which gives the United States a priority for all claims it has
against insolvent debtors, does not apply to the case of an insolvent national banking association. {Cook County National Bankv. United States,
107, U. S., 445.)
(b) And as against the proceeds of the bonds deposited to secure circulation
the United- States can set off no claim, except for money advanced to redeem the notes. {Ibid.)
(o) And upon the failure of an association its 5 per cent redemption fund can
not be retained by the Treasurer to pay taxes due to the United States, but
the fund passes to the Comptroller as an asset of the association. {Jackson v. United States, 20 Ct. Ch., 298.)
5. CLAIMS FOR TORTS:

Claims arising out of the non-feasance or malfeasance of the association should
be paid ratably with the debts, technically so called. {Turner v. First National Bank of Keokuk et al., 26 Ioiva, 562.)
6. PREFERENCES:

{a) A preference, to be within the meaning of section 5242, Revised Statutes!
must be given to an existing creditor to secure a pre-existing debt. A transfer by an insolvent bank to secure a contemporaneous loan is not a violation
of the law. {Casey v. La Soci6U de Credit Mobilier, 2 Wood, 77.)




10G

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

6. PREFERENCES—Continued.

(b) Revised Statutes, United States, section 5*242, which prohibits all transfer*-*
by any national banking association made after the commission of an act o J
insolvency, or in contemplation thereof, with the view to a preference o
one creditor over another, is directed to a preference, not to the giving of
security when a debt is created; and if the transaction be free from fraud
in fact, and is intended merely to adequately protect a loan made at the
time, the creditor can retain property transferred to secure such a loan
until the debt is paid, though the debtor is insolvent, and the creditor has
reason at the time to believe that to be the fact. (Armstrong v. Chemical
National Bank, 41 Fed. Rep., 234.)
(c) A banker's lien for the amount of the balance of its general account does
not exist when the securities have been deposited with the bank for a
special purpose, or for the payment of a particular loan. (Ibid.)
(d) Revised Statutes, United States, section 5242, which invalidates all transfers
of the notes, bonds, or bills of exchanges of a national bank, after the commission of an act of insolvency, with the view to the preferences of one
creditor over another, does not prohibit a bank which has in good faith
accepted the draft of a national bank the day before the latter's insolvency,
and afterward paid the same, from applying the proceeds of collections
made by it, on paper in its hands belonging to the insolvent bank, to the
payment of the draft, since its lien on such collections runs from the date
of the acceptance. (In re Armstrong, 41 Fed. Rep., 381.)
(e) The insolvency need be in the contemplation of the bank only. It need not
be known to the person to whom the transfer is made. (Case v. Citizens1
Bank of Louisiana, supra.)
(f) After the directors of an insolvent association have voted to close its doors,
any transfer of assets whereby a creditor secures a preference must be presumed to be made with an intent to prefer. (National Security Bank v.
Price, 22 Fed. Rep., 697.)
(g) Where the officers of an association which is in danger of insolvency, fo\
the purpose and in the expectation of preventing a failure, make a pledge of
securities to a depositor to induce him not to withdraw his deposit, such a
pledge is not a preference within the meaning of section 5242, Revised
Statutes, and will not be set aside when the association afterward is declared insolvent. (Roberts v. Hill, 23 Fed. Rep., 311.)
(h) Where an insolvent association receives a deposit a short time before closing its doors, its officers knowing of the insolvency at the time, the receipt
of such deposit is a fraud upon the depositor, and no title passes to the
association, and therefore the depositor may reclaim the whole amount
of the deposit; and as he claims under his orignal title, and not under a
transfer from the association, such reclamation does not amount to a preference. (Cragie et al v. Hadley, 99 N. Y, 131.)
(i) A trust was not impressed upon funds deposited on day the bank closed its
doors in the absence of proof that the deposit had not gone into the general
fund of the bank and lost its identity before reaching the receiver. (In re
North River Bank, 14 N. Y, 261.)
(j) But a creditor will not have a lien upon the funds of the association because
checks given in settlement of balances were fraudulent, and were given at
a time when the bank was hopelessly insolvent and its officers were contemplating flight. (Citizens' National Bank v. Dowd, 35 Fed. Rep., 340.)
(k) Where the proceeds of an item indorsed u for collection and return " were
mingled with other moneys of the bank, if it was a breach of trust it was a
convertion, and plaintiff became a simple contract creditor, with no preference at law. (Philadelphia National Bank v. Dowd, 38 Fed. Rep., 172.)
(?) Where by agreement and custom a national bank received drafts from its
correspondent indorsed "for collection for the," and credited it to them as
cash, with the understanding that any unpaid draft should be charged
back, and where the collecting bank failed before collection, the proceeds
of the draft coming into the hands of a receiver, the correspondent bank
has the rights of a general creditor only. (First National Bankv. Armstrong, 39 Fed. Rep., 231.)
(m) Where a national bank collected all papers sent to it by complainant under an arrangement which constituted the bank the agent of complainant,
the latter can recover, on the ground of a trust, from a receiver of the
bank such portion only of the proceeds of its paper sent to the bank as it
shows has passed into the receiver's hands, either in its original or some
substituted form. (Commercial National Bank v. Armstrong, 39 Fed. Rep.,
s 684.)

0. PRE F EnKNCES—Continued.
(n) Wliero checks and drafts sent from one bank to another indorsed "for collection" and credited "subject to payment" according to the dealings
between the banks, and part of them were paid to the receiver of the latter
bank after its failure and the balances were credited to it by the payors,
the amount paid the receiver should be accounted for as a trust fund, but
the balance as a general debt. (First National Bank v. Armstrong, 42 Fed.
Eep., 193.)
(o) Negotiable paper with restrictive indorsement credited by agent on date
of receipt u subject to payment," although account is subject to be drawn
upon, title is not transferred, and upon the insolvency of the agent before
receiving notice of the collection of the item, the owner is entitled to the
proceeds in the hands of the collecting agent. (Fifth National Bank v.
Armstrong, 40 Fed. Rep., 46.)
(p) The drawers of a draft deposited with a bank for collection, and by it forwarded to a correspondent bank, are entitled to the amount as against
the receiver of the forwarding bank, which was insolvent, and known to
be so by its officers when it received the draft, and suspended payment before the proceeds were withdrawn from the collecting bank. (Importers
and Traders' National Bank v. Peters et al. (Court of Appeals. N. Y.), 25
N. E. Eep., 319.)
(q) When a bank which has received a draft for collection sends it to another
bank for that purpose, and on being advised that the latter bank has collected the draft credits the depositor and then becomes insolvent without
having received the money from the collecting bank, the depositor remains
the owner of the draft, and is entitled to its proceeds from the collecting
bank against the receiver and the creditors of the insolvent bank. (Armstrong v. National Bank of Boyertotvn (Court of Appeals, Ky.), 11 S. TV. Rep.,
411.)
7. BASIS FOR ESTIMATION OF DIVIDENDS:

In estimating the dividends to be paid out of the assets of an insolvent association, the value of the claims at the time when the insolvency is declared is
to be taken as the basis of distribution. (White v. Knox, 111 U. S., 784.)
8. SET-OFF:

(a) A person liable upon a note to an insolvent national bank may set off
against his indebtedness the amount of hisdeposits with the bank. (Platt
v. Bentley, Thomp. N. B. Cas., 758.)
(&) But a debtor can not set off the amount of a deposit assigned to him after
the act of insolvency committed. (Venango National Bank v. Taylor, 56
Penn. St.,U.)
(c) Funds received on the discounting of a note and deposited with the discounting bank, subject to the check of the depositor and which had been
drawn upon by him, but were intended by him to meet the note when due,
can not be pleaded as a set-off in an action on the note brought by the receiver of the discounting bank who received the note before maturity.
(Armstrong v. Scott, 36 Fed. Rep., 63.)
(d) The commercial paper of a national bank becomes overdue and dishonored
after the commission of an act of insolvency and appointment of a receiver, and is subject to all equities between the bank and the original
party to whom it was payable, (U. St D. C. (N. I). Ill), May, 1890.3
(e) A set-off under Illinois statute in favor of the maker of a note or bill is
available if the paper is assigned after due, whether arising out of the
same transaction or otherwise. (Ibid.)
9. CLAIM FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT OF LEASE :

Where a national bank has leased a banking house for a long term of years, and
subsequently becomes insolvent, but during the time it continued business
had not defaulted in paying the rent, the leseor has no claim against the
receiver by reason of the insolvency or dissolution of the corporation or
the forfeiture of its franchises, or by the refusal of the receiver to take
under the contract and pay the rent. (Fidelity Soft Deposit and Trust Co. v.
Armstrong, 35 Fed. Rep., 567.)
IX. RECEIVER.
1. OFFICER OF THE UNITED STATES:

A receiver, when appointed by the Comptroller, with the concurrence of the
Secretary, is an officer of the United States. (Stanton v. Wilkesonj 8 Ben.t
 357.)


108

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

2. WHOM HE REPRESENTS:

He represents the bank, its stockholders, and its creditors ; but he does r.ot ii
uny sense represent the Government. (Case v. Terrell, 11 Wall., 199.)
3. HOW FAR SUBJECT TO COMPTROLLER'S ORDERS:

(a) The clause of section 50, act of 1864, which prescribes that the receiver shal
he *' under the direction of the Comptroller/' means only that he shall b
<
subject to the Comptroller's direction, not that he shall not act jvithou
orders. He may bring suit to collect assets without having been instructe<
to do so by the Comptroller. (Bank v. Kennedy, 17 Wall.)
(b) The receiver of a national bank is the instrument of the Comptroller, am
may he removed by him, (Kennedy v. Gibson, 8 Wall., 505.)
4. POWER OF COURTS TO APPOINT:

(a) Tim power of the Comptroller to appoint a receiver is not exclusive; it doe;
not oust the courts of equity of their authority in the matter; and there
fore a court of competent jurisdiction may place the bank in the hands of J
receiver in cases where, according to the rules of equity, it may pursue sucl
a course with regard to insolvent corporations generally. (Irons v. Manu
facturers' National Bank, 6 Biss., 301; Wright v. Merchants' National Bank
1 Flippin, 561.)
(b) Where a bank has gone into voluntary liquidation, and the Comptrolle
has no power to appoint a receiver, a proper court, in a case where sue!
action is necessary to protect the interests of a creditor, will appoint a re
ceiver for it. (Irons v. Manufacturers1 National Bank, supra.)
(c) Where a national hank is insolvent, and in process of voluntary liquida
tion, and its affairs are being greatly mismanaged by its managing agents
to the injury of its creditors and stockholders, and some of the cretlitor
and stockholders are being favored to the injury of others, a receiver ma;
be appointed in such a case, even where the bank only has been made i
defendant. (Elivood v. First National Bank, 21 Kans., 673.)
5. DEBTORS OF ASSOCIATION CAN NOT QUESTION LEGALITY OF APPOINTMENT:

The legality of the appointment of the receiver can not be questioned by th<
debtors of the bank when sued by him. The bank may move to have th<
appointment set aside, but the debtors can not. (Cadle v. Baker, 20 Wall.
650 ; see also Platt v. Beebe, 57 N. F., 339.)
6. RECEIVER'S DECISION NOT FINAL:

The decision of a receiver rejecting a claim is not final. The claimant still ha
the right to sue. (Bank of Bethel v. Pahquioque Bank, 14 Wall, 383.)
7. SALE B Y :

(a) The receiver can not sell the real or personal property of the bank withou
an order from a court of competent jurisdiction. (Ellis v. Little, 27 Kans.
707.)
(b) Nor can he sell upon the terms in conflict with the order. (Ibid.)
(c) And under an order permitting him to sell the property of the bank he cai
not exchange, trade, or barter it for other property. (Ibid.)
(d) A sale made by a receiver under order of a court is to all intents and pur
poses a judicial sale. (In re Third National Bank, 9 Biss., 535.)
8. CONTRACTS OF :

(a) As the power of a receiver of a national bank appointed by the Comptrolle
is limited, a person dealing with him in his official capacity is bound as i
matter of law to have knowledge of his authority to act, and if contract
and agreements are entered into with the receiver in excess of his authority
as conferred by law, the parties contract at their own peril and the estati
of the bank can not be charged for the default or inability of a receive
acting outside of his functions as receiver and beyond the duties which i
involves. (Ellis v. Little, 27, Kans., 707.)
(b) The receiver can not charge the estate of the bank by any executory con
tract, unless authorized so to do by the provisions of the national banking
law, and the order of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained upon th<
terms of said law. (Ibid.)
9. EXPENSES OF RECEIVERSHIP FOR ASSOCIATION WHICH HAS GONE INTO LIQUIDATION

Where after an association has gone into liquidation a receiver is appointee
at the instance of the creditors, the expenses of such receivership must b(
paid by the creditors. The shareholders can not be made individually
liable for such expenses. (Bichmond v. Irons.)



REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

X. TAXATION.
1. WHAT MAY BE TAXED :

(a) A State can not tax the capital stock of a national bank as such. The
tax must be assessed upon the shares of the different stockholders. (Collins
v. Chicago, 4 Biss., 472.)
(b) Under Revised Statutes, United States, section 5219, which declares that
nothing in the national banking act shall prevent all the shares of stock
of a national bank from being included in the assessment of the personal
property of the owners of such shares, an assessment of the entire stock of
a national bank in solido against the bank itself is invalid. {National Bank
of Virginia v. City of Richmond et al., 42 Fed. Rep., 877.)
(c) The assessment of the entire capital stock of a national bank in solido
against the bank itself is invalid. The bank may pay the tax assessed upon
the shares of its different stockholders, and it will have a lien thereon
when it pays such tax until the same is satisfied; but if for any cause the
tax levied upon the different stockholders is not paid by the bank, the
property of the individual stockholders will be liable therefor. {First
National Bank of Leoti v. Fisher (S. C., Kans.), April 11,1891.)
(d) The individual stockholders of a national bank are allowed the same deductions from the assessment against them upon their shares of stock as other
tax payers in the State, owning moneyed capital, are allowed. (Ibid.)
(e) The term " moneyed capital "~as used in Revised Statutes, United States
respecting State taxation of shares in national banks embraces capital employed in national banks, and capital employed by individuals when the object of their business is the making of profit by the use of their moneyed
capital as money. (Talbott v. Silver Bow County, Montana, 139 U. S., 438.)
(/) Laws, New York, chapter 596, section 3, which provides that the stockholders in banks and trust companies organized under the authority of the
State, or of the United States, shall be assessed for the value of their shares
of stock, but which'omits to provide for the taxation of the shares of stock
in other private corporations, does not contravene Revised Statutes, United
States, section 5219, which forbids the taxation of shares of national banks
at a greater rate than is assessed on other " moneyed capital" in the hands
of the individual citizens of the State. (Palmer v. McMahon, U. S. S. C.)
(g) The shares of a national bank are taxable to the owners, and the bank is
*
not liable primarily or as the agent of the shareholders, under the act of
Congress, or the various laws of the State or Territory, for the payment of
a tax levied upon such shares; but if such bank, through its proper officers,
voluntarily lists such shares as the property of the bank for taxation, and
the taxing officers of the State or Territory in pursuance of such erroneous
listing tax the same in the name of the bank, equity will not relieve the
bank from the payment of such tax by enjoining its collection in the absence of a proper application to all the statutory tribunals authorized to
hear such matter and determine and grant the proper relief. '(Albuquerque
National Bank v. Peoria et al. (S. C, N. Mex.), January 28, 1891.)
(h) The entire interests x>f the shareholders may be taxed without any deduction for that portion of the capital which is invested in United States securities. (Van Allen v. The Assessors, 3 Wall., 573.)
(i) New shares issued by a national banking association can not be taxed until
the increase of capital has been approved by the Comptroller of the Currency. (Charleston y. People's National Bank, 5 S. C, 103.)
(j) The manifest intention of the law is to permit the State in which a national
bank is located to tax, subject to the limitations prescribed, all the shares
of its capital stock without regard to their ownership; and, therefore, a
national bank may be taxed upon the shares which it holds in another
national bank. (Bank of Redemption v. Boston, 126 U. S., 60.)
(k) The undivided surplus of a national banking assciation, unless invested
in Federal securities, may be lawfully taxed by the State. (North Ward
National Bank of Newark v. City of Newark, 10 Vroom, 380; First National
Bank v. Peterborough, 56 N. H., 3*5.)
(I) But, of course, if the surplus is taken into consideration in estimating the
taxable value of the shares, it is not to be taxed separately. (North Ward
National Bank v. City of Newark, supra.)
NOTE.—But it has been held in Maryland that the stock of an association
represents its whole property, and where a tax is assessed upon the shares
a separate tax upon the real or personal estate amounts to double taxation; and, therefore, where the organic laws of the State prohibit double
taxation, such a tax upon the property of an association is void. (County
Commissioners v. Farmers and Mechanics' National Bank, 48 Md., 117 ; see
also National State Bank v. Young, 25 Iowa, 311, wherein it was held that
 the States could tax only the shares eo nomine and the real estate.)


110

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

1. WHAT MAY BE TAXED—Continued.

(m) The surplus fund of a national banking association is not excluded in the
valuation of its shares for taxation. (Str afford National Bank v. Dover, 51
N. ff.,316.)
(n) Where shares of stock are assessed at their actual cash value, without anj
deduction for the real estate owned by the association, the real estate
should not be taxed eo nomine. (Commissioners of Mice County v. Citizens
National Bank of Faribault, 23 Minn., 280.)
(o) Real estate owned by a bank constitutes part of its assets, within the
meaning of Code of Mississippi providing that banks shall pay a privilege
tax, whose amount varies with their " capital stock or assets" in lieu ol
all other taxes. (Vicksburg Bank v. Worrell, 7 So. Rep., 219.)
(p) The States can not tax the circulating notes of national banking associa
tions. (Hornev. Greene, 52 Miss., 452 ; Contra Board of Commissioners v
Elston, 32 Ind., 27, see also Ruffinv. Board of Commissioners, 69 N. C, 498:
Lily v. The Commissioners, 69 N. C, 300.)
2. RATE:

(a) Where the State banks are taxed upon the capital, no tax can be imposed
upon the shares of national banking associations ; for as the capital of the
State banks may consist of the bonds of the United States, which are exempt from State taxation, a tax on capital is not equivalent to a tax on
shares. (Van Allen v. The Assessors, 3 Wall., 573; Bradley v. The People, A
Wall., 459.)
(b) But though the tax upon the State banks is not eo nomine a tax on shares,
yet if it is equivalent to such a tax, the shares in the national banking associations located in that State may be taxed. (Frazer v. Seibern, 16 Ohio St.^
614; FanSlykev. State, 23 Wis., 656; Boijnoll v. State, 25 Wis., 112.)
(c) Where by local legislation different rates are prescribed for different classeg
of moneyed capital, the rate imposed upon shares of national banks should
approximate as closely as may be to the rate imposed upon other moneyec
capital of the same or similar class, viz, shares of Sfcate banks. (City National Bank v. Paducah, U. S. C. C. (Sixth Circuit, 1877), 5 Cent. L. J., 347.)
(d) Congress meant no more than to require of the States, as a condition to the
exercise of the power to tax the shares in national banks, that they should,
as far as they had the capacity, tax in like manner the shares of banks of
issue of their own creation. (Lionberger v. Bouse, 9 Wall., 468.)
*
(c) Therefore, where a State has previously contracted with the banks which
it has chartered that they shall not be taxed above a certain rate, a tax
upon national-bank shares at a greater rate is not invalid if this rate ie
not greater than that assessed upon all the moneyed capital within the
State, except that of the State banks. (Ibid.)
(/) Any system of assessment of taxes which exacts from the owner of the
shares of a national banking association a larger sum in proportion to the
actual value of those shares than it does from other moneyed capital,
valued in like manner, taxes the shares at a greater rate, notwithstanding
that the percentage of tax on the valuation is the same as that applied to
other moneyed capital. (Peltony. Commercial National Bank, 101 U.S., 143.]
3. VALUATION:

(a) In estimating the value of the shares for the purpose of taxation reference may be had to all the property and values of the bank. (Saint Louii
National Banky. Papin, U. S. C. C. (Eighth Circuit), 3 Cent. L. J., 669.)
(b) If no excessive valuation is complained of, and a correct result is arrived
at, equity will not restrain the collection of a tax because the method oi
computation was erroneous. (Ibid.)
(c) The shares may be valued for taxation at an amount exceeding their face
value, if this amount is not at a greater rate than the valuation set upoi]
other moneyed capital in the State. (Hepburn v. School Directors, 23 Wall.
480.)
(d) Under the statute of New York, shares in national banking associations
should be taxed at their real or market value. (People v. The Commissionen
of Taxes and Assessments, 94 U. S., 415.)
(e) Where shares in national banking associations are purposely valued proportionately higher than the other moneyed capital in the State, the assessment is void. (Pelton v. National Bank, 101 U. S., 143.)
(f) And the collection of what is in excess of the rate imposed on the other
moneyed capital may be enjoined. (Ibid.)

3. VALUATION—Continued.
(g) It is not required that the State should abandon systems of taxation of
their own banks, or of rnonoy in the hands of their other corporations,
which they may think the most wise and efficient modes of taxing their
own corporate organizations, in order to make that taxation conform to the
system of taxing the national banks upon the shares of their stock in the
hands of the shareholders; all that is necessary is that the system of State
taxation of its own citizens, of its own banks, and of its own corporations
shall not work a discrimination unfavorable to the holders of the shares of
the national banks. {Davenport Bank v. Davenport, 123 U. S.} 83.)
4. EXEMPTIONS:

(a) The intention of Congress was that the rate of taxation of the shares should
be the same as, or not greater than, the tax upon the moneyed capital of
the individual citizen which is subject and liable to taxation. (People v. The
Commissioners, 4 Wall, 244.)
(6) Therefore, it is not a ground of objection to the validity of a tax on shares
that, while deductions for United States bonds are made from the personal
estates of individuals and the capital of State corporations, no deductions
are made on account of the capital of national banking associations invested in such bonds. (Ibid.)
(c) The fact that by the statutes creating them, which statutes were passed
prior to the national banking law, State banks are entirely exempt from
taxation will not render a tax upon the shares of national banking associations void. (City of Richmond v. Scott, 48 Ind., 568.)
(d) And a State tax upon shares in national banking associations is not rendered invalid by an exemption of the shares of other corporations, the capital of which consists of property required to be listed for taxation as such.
(Mclver v. Robinson, 53 Ala., 456.)
(e) Merely a partial exemption of other moneyed capital will not invalidate a
tax upon shares in national banking associations. (Hepburn v. School Directors, 23 Wall., 480.)
(/) But though Congress did not contemplate that there should be an absolute
equality (which in the nature of things is impossible), yet it did intend
that there should be a substantial equality ; and therefore, if the exemptions in favor of other moneyed capital are so palpable as to show that
there is a serious discrimination against capital invested in the shares of
national banking associations, the tax will be declared unlawful. (Boyer
v. Boyer, 113 U. S., 690.)
(g) A State law which does not permit a deduction to be made from the assessed value of bank shares for all debts due by the holder thereof, while
authorizing such a deduction to be made from the assessed value of moneyed capital otherwise invested, is void. (People ex rel. Williams v. Weaver,
100 U. S., 539, reversing S. C, 67 JV. Y., 516, and overruling People v.Dolan,
36 N. Y., 59.)
(h) In the assessment and taxation of shares of national-bank stock, the owners
thereof, having no other credits or moneyed capital, are entitled to deduct
their bona fide debts from the value of such shares of stock. (Wasson v. Bank
(Ind.),8N. E. Rep.,97.)
(i) Revised Statutes, section 5219, providing that shares of national-bank stock
may be taxed as part of the personality of the owner, and that each State
may tax them in its own manner, except that the taxation shall not be at a
greater rate than is imposed on other "moneyed capital" owned by citizens of the State, and that the shares of non-residents shall only be taxed
in the city wherein the bank is located, do not authorize the taxation of the
stock of a bank in solido by the city in which it does business, but only the
shares of individual owners residing in the city are taxable, and they must
be taxed separately, in order that the owner may deduct from their value
the amount of his personal indebtedness, where the State laws or municipal
ordinances permit such deductions, and require equality of taxation.
(First National Bank of Richmond v. City of Richmond et al., 39 Fed. Rep., 309.)
(;') The main purpose of Congress in fixing limits to State taxation on investments in the shares of national banks, was to render it impossible for the
State in levying such a tax to create and foster an unequal and unfriendly
competition by favoring institutions or individuals carrying on similar business
and operations and investments of a like character ; and the language of the
law is to be read in the light of this policy. And, therefore, the exemption
of shares of stock in corporations, the business of which does not come into
competition with that of the national bank (e. g., railroad companies, mining



112

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

4. EXEMPTIONS—Continued.

companies, manufacturing companies, and insurance companies), does not
invalidate a tax upon national-bank shares. Capital thus employed is not
u
moneyed capital " within the meaning of the act of Congress. (Mercantile Bank v. New York, 121 U. S., 138.)
(k) Bonds issued by a State, or under its authority by its public municipal
bodies, although they undoubtedly represent moneyed capital, yet as from
their nature they are not ordinarily the subject of taxation, are not within
the reason of the rule established by Congress for the taxation of nationalbank shares, and the fact that the State exempts them from taxation does
not deprive it of the right to tax shares of stock of national banks in the
State. (Ibid.)
(I) Although deposits in savings banks constitute moneyed capital in the
hands of individuals within the terms of any definition which can be given
of that phrase, yet they are not within the meaning of the act of Congress
in such a sense as to require that, if they are exempted from taxation,
shares of stock in national banks must thereby also be exempted from
taxation ; for it can not be supposed that savings banks come into any possible competition with national banks. (Ibid.)
(m) Under act Louisiana, 1888, section 27, relating to taxation of national-bank
shares, making no deduction for that part of the bank's property entering
into their value which consists of non-taxable State and national securities,
which deduction may, under the act, be made by individuals, a tax on
national-bank shares violates Revised Statutes of the United States, section 5219, prohibiting the assessment of such shares at a greater rate than
moneyed capital in the hands of individual citizens, audit is immaterial
that the same discrimination is made against other corporations. (Whitney
National Bank v. Parker, 41 Fed. Rep., 402.)
5. COLLECTION OF TAX FROM THE ASSOCIATION:

(a) A State tax upon shares is valid, though the tax is collected from the bank.
(National Bank v. Commonwealth, 9 Wall., 353.)
(b) And the State may require the banks to pay a tax rightfully laid upon the
shares. (Ibid.)
(c) And where the tax on shares is payable by the association, the collection
of the tax may be enforced by distraint of its property. (First National Bank
v. Douglas County, 3 DHL, 330.)
(d) But where the tax laws of the State make the bank the mere agent for paying the tax on shares, and direct it to retain so much of the dividends as
will answer that purpose, other agents being required to pay taxes for their
principals only when they have under their control the property, money,
or credit of such principals, the bank can not be made liable unless it has
the control of the property, etc., of its shareholders, or has dividends in its
possession, or has failed to retain them. (Hershire v. First National Bank,
35 Iowa, 272.)
(e) Act Louisiana, 1888, section 27, providing that shares in banks shall be
assessed to the shareholders, but requiring the bank to pay taxes so assessed,
and authorizing it to collect the same from the shareholders, imposes a tax,
not upon the bank, but upon its shares, as permitted by act of Congress,
providing 4hat a State may determine the manner of taxing the shares of
national banks located in the State. ( Whitney National Bank v. Parker, 41
Fed. Bep., 402.)
6. LICENSE TAX:

(a) National banking associations can not be subjected to a license or privilege
tax. (Mayor v. First National Bank of Maoon, 59 Ga., 648; City of Carthage
v. First National Bank of Carthage, 71 Mo., 508; National Bank of Chattanooga v. Mayor, 8 Heiskell, 814.)
(b) A State law prohibiting the establishment of banking companies in the
State without the authority of the legislature was not intended to apply to
banking corporations created by authority of Congress, since such corporations may be legally established in the State without the consent of the
legislature. (Stetson v. City of Bangor, 56 J/e., 274.)
7. POWERS OF TAXING OFFICERS:

(a) Municipal officers can not asses a tax upon the shares of national banking
associations until authorized to do so by some law of the State. (Stetson v.
City of Bangor, 56 Me., 274.)
(&) The officers of a national banking association can not be compelled to exhibit to the taxing officers of a State the books of the association showing
the deposits of its customers. (First National Bank of Youngstown v* Hughes,
 U> S< C. C. (Ni D. Ohio, 1878), BrQWntfs N* B* Gas<t 176,)


REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

7. POWERS OF TAXING OFFICERS—Continued.

(c) Code Alabama, 1286, S. 1677, which provides that stockholders of all private
corporations have the right to have access to, and inspection and examination of the books, records, and papers of the corporation, at all reasonable
and proper times, applies to national banks located within the State, and
the rights of stockholders are not curtailed nor the statute in conflict with
Revised Statutes, United States, which provide that national banks shall
not be subject to visitorial powers other than those authorized by Congress
or vested in the courts of justice. (Winter v. Baldwin, Ala., 7 So., 734.)
(d) The only remedy for the making o f a false return to the auditor by the
*
cashier of a bank, of the resources and liabilities of the bank for the purposes of taxation, is afforded by revised statutes of Ohio, section 2679, which
provides that the auditor may examine the books of the bank, and any officer or agent of it under oath, and make out the statement; and any officer
of the bank may be lined not exceeding $100 for failing to make the statement, or for willfully making a false one. (Miller v. First National Bank, 21
N.E.Rep., 860.)
(e) A national banking association is not exempt from examination by internalrevenue officers when it has in its possession any articles subject to an
internal-revenue tax. Such an examination is not the exercise of a yisitorial
power, and therefore is not prohibited by the provision of section 5241,
. Revised Statutes, that the national banks shall not be subject to any visitorial powers except those authorized by the national-bank act or vested
in the courts of justice. (United States v. Bhawn, U. S. D. C. (E. 1). Penn.),
Thomp. N. B. Cas., 358.)
(/) Where by the tax laws of a State a perpetual lien for taxes attaches to
property only by virtue of a levy thereon, and such levy is not made prior
to the insolvency of the bank, the taxing officers of the State will be restrained, at the instance of the receiver, from levying upon the property
of an insolvent national bank, and selling it, for the purpose of collecting
a tax. (Woodward v, Ellsworth, 4 Colo., 580.)
(g) A State may require the cashiers of national banking associations located
within its territory to transmit lists of the shareholders to the taxing officers of the various towns in which the shareholders reside. (Waite v. Dowley, 94 U. S., 527.)
8. ENFORCEMENT OF TAXES:

A tax duly assessed upon shares may be enforced in accordance with the general laws of the State on that subject. ( Weld v. City of Bangvr, 59 Me.,
416.)
9. LOCATION OF ASSOCIATION FOR TAXING PURPOSES :

An association which opens au office for the purpose of receiving deposits in
another place than that in which it was organized does not become " l o cated" in that place for purposes of taxation. (National State Bank of
Camden v. Pierce, U. S. C. C. (E. D. Perm.), 18 Alb. L. J., 16).
XI. JURISDICTION.
NOTE.—The jurisdiction of the Federal courts in national-bank cases was very
materially changed by the proviso to the fourth section of the act of July
12, 1882. The proviso is as follows:
il
Provided, however, That the jurisdiction for suits hereafter brought by or
against any association established under any law providing for national
banking associations, except suits between them and the United States, or
its officers and agents, shall be the same as, and not other than, the jurisdiction for suits by or against banks not organized under any law of the
United States which do or might do banking business where such national
banking associations may be doing business when such suits may be begun.
And all laws and parts of laws of the United States inconsistent with this
proviso be, and the same are hereby, repealed."
The jurisdiction of the United States circuit courts in suits by or against national banks is thus defined by section 4. act March 3, 1887:
" SEC. 4. That all national banking associations established under the laws of
the United States shall, for the purposes of all actions by or against them,
real, personal, or mixed, and all suits in equity, be deemed citizens of the
States in which they are respectively located; and in such cases the circuit and district courts shall not have jurisdiction other than such as they
would have in cases between individual citizens of the same State.

JURISDICTION—Continued.

" The provisions of this section shall not be held to affect the jurisdiction of
the courts of the United States in cases commenced by the United States,
or by direction of any officer thereof, or cases for winding up the affairs of
any such bank.'7
1. JURISDICTION OP FEDERAL COURTS PRIOR TO THE ACT OF JULY 12,

1882:

(a) National banking associations may sue in the Federal courts. The word
" by " was omitted from section 57 of the act of 1864 by mistake. (Kennedy
v. Gibson, 8 Wall, 505.)
(6) A national banking association may sue and be sued in the circuit court for
the district in which the association is located, irrespective of the amount
in controversy and the citizenship of the parties. (County of Wilson v. National Bank, 103 U. 8., 770; Mitchell v. Walker, U. S. C. C. (W. D. Penn.,
1879), Browne'8 N. B. Cas., 180; Commercial Bank of Cleveland v. Simmons,
U. 8. C. C. (W. D. Ohio), 10 Alb. L. J., 155.)
(c) But where the amount in controversy does not exceed five hundred dollars,
the association can not sue in a Federal court outside of the district in which
it is established. (St..Louis National Bank v. Brinkman, U. S. C. C. (D.
Kans.),lFed. Rep., 45.)
(d) A national banking association located in one State may bring an action in
the circuit court of the United States sitting within another State against
a citizen of that State. (Manufacturers7 National Bank v. Baack, 8 Blatch,,
147.)
(e) When a national bank is sued in a Federal court the suit must be brought
in the district in which the bank is located. And service upon an officer of
the bank in another district will not give the court of that district jurisdiction of the cause. (Maine v. Second National Bank of Chicago, 8 Biss., 26.)
(/) A United States district court has jurisdiction of a suit in equity by or
against a national banking association located within the district. (First
National Bank of Pittsburgh v. Pittsburgh and Castle Shannon Railroad Company, 1 Fed. Bep., 190.)
(g) A circuit court has no jurisdiction of a suit by a private person to compel
the Comptroller of the Currency and the Treasurer of the United States to
disclose what disposition has been made of the United States bonds deposited with the Treasurer by a national banking association, and for a decree
directing those officers as to t>mir duty regarding such bonds. (Van Antwerp v. Hulburd, 7 Blatch., 425; Van Antwerp v. Hulburd, 8 Blatch., 282.)
(h) Section 380, Revised Statutes, which provides that "all suits and proceedings arising out of the provisions of law governing national banking associations, in which the United States or any of its officers or agents shall
be parties, shall be conducted by the district attorneys of the several districts under the direction and supervision of the Solicitor of the Treasury,"
does not enlarge the jurisdiction of the circuit court, and can not be held
to confer jurisdiction in such suits or proceedings upon a court not having,
independently of this section, authority to entertain them. ( Van Antwerp
v. Hulburd, 7 Blatch., 426, supra.)
(i) National banking associations, being corporations organized under the laws
of the United States, are entitled as such to remove into the circuit court
of the United States suits brought against them in the State courts.
(Cruikshank v. Fourth National Bank, 21 Blatch., 322; see also Removal
Cases, 115 U. S., 1.)
(j) A United States district court has jurisdiction to authorize a receiver to
compromise a debt. (Matter of Plait, 1 Ben., 534.)
(k) An action at common law to recover a debt due to the bank may be instituted by a receiver in a United States district court, he being an officer of
the United States within the meaning of section 563, Revised Statutes.
(Platt v. Beach, 2 Ben., 303; Stantonv. IVilkcson, 8 Ben., 357.)
(Z) The power of a national banking association to take a mortgage upon real
estate is a question which the party raising it should be permitted to litigate in a Federal court; and he should not be sent into the State courts to
try this question on the distribution of surplus moneys in a foreclosure
suit, or in a suit brought by the party holding the alleged invalid mortgage. (In re Duryea, U. S. D. C. (S."l). N. Y.), 11 National Bankruptcy
Register, 495.)
2. JURISDICTION OF FEDERAL COURTS SUBSEQUENT TO ACT OF JULY 12,

1882:

(a) The tenth subdivision af section 629, Revised Statutes, which confers upon
the circuit court of the United States jurisdiction of all suits by or against
any national banking association established in the district for which the

court is held, lias been repealed by the proviso to section 4 of the act of
July 12, 1882. (National Bank of Jefferson v. Fare el al., U. S. C. C. (E. D.
Tex.), 25 Fed. Eep., 200.)
(b) The object of this proviso was to deprive the United States courts of jurisdiction of suits by or against national banking associations in all cases
where banks organized under State laws could not likewise sue or be sued
in such courts. (National Bank of Jefferson v. Fare et al., supra.)
(c) But the proviso does not affect the right of the receiver of an insolvent association to sue in a Federal court. (Sendee v. Connecticut and P. E. E. Co.,
26 Fed. Eep., 677.)
(d) Nor would the act of July 12, 1882, take from the circuit court jurisdiction
of a suit brought against a director for negligent performance of his duties;
for as such suit rests upon the requirements of the United States laws, and
by-laws made pursuant thereto, it is a case arising under the laws of the
United States. ^ (Witters v. Foster, U. S. C. C. (D. Ft.), 28 Fed. Eep., 737.)
(e) In an action against a national bank in a circuit court of the United States,
if all the parties are citizens of the district in which the bank is situated,
and the action does not come under section 5209 or section 5239 of the Revised Statutes, the circuit court .has no jurisdiction. (Whittemore v.
Amoskeag National Bank, 134 TJ. £.,527.)
(/) The Federal courts have jurisdiction of an action between a national bank
located in one State and a citizen of another State. (First National Bank
v. Forest, 40 Fed. Eep., 705.)
(g) An action between a receiver of an insolvent national bank and a depositor
does not present a Federal question under Revised Statutes of the United
States, section 5242, avoiding preferences to creditors of such an insolvent
bank. (Tehan v. First National Bank et al., 39 Fed. Eep., 577.) On motion
to remand to State court.
(7i) A receiver of an insolvent national bank is an officer of the United States
within the meaning of section 563, Revised Statutes of the United States,
which gives the district courts jurisdiction of " all suits at common law
brought by the United States, or any officer thereof authorized by law to
sue.'7 (U, S. D. C. (E. D. Mo.), Feb. 24, 1890.)
3. JURISDICTION OF STATE COURTS:

(a) State courts have jurisdiction of suits by and against national banking associations. (Bank of Bethel v. Pahquioque Bank, 14 Wall., 383; see also Ordway v. Central National Bank, 47 Md.y 217, and Clafflinv. Houseman, 93 U. S.,
130.)
(b) Where a national banking association is sued in a State court the suit must
he brought in the city or county in which the bank is located. (Cadle v.
Tracey, 11 Blatch., 101; Crocker v. Maine National Bank, 101 Mass., 240.)
NOTE.—But the New York court of appeals has held that the provision of the
national banking law as to the jurisdiction of State courts is permissive
only, and not mandatory, and that a State court, in a proper case, may entertain a proceeding against a national bank located in another State. .
(Cooke v. The State National Bank of Boston, 52 JV". F., 96 ; Eobinson v. National Bank of New Berne, 81 j\ r . Y.,385; see also Adams v. Daunis, 29 La.
Ann., 315.) And in Talmage'v. Third National Bank, 27 Hun, 61, the supreme court of New York said: "The words of restriction to the placewhere said 'association is situated7 apply to the county and municipal
courts and not to the State courts. In the State courts of general jurisdiction a national banking association can be sued whenever an individual
can be for the same cause.77 In Cooke v. The State National Bank, Chief
Judge Church questioned the constitutional right of Congress to deprive
the State courts of jurisdiction in such cases.
(c) A State court can entertain an action brought to recover of a national
banking association the penalty for taking usury. (Ordway v. The Central
National Bank, 47 Md., 217; Hade v. McVay, 31 Ohio St., 231; Bletz v. .Columbia National Bank, 87 Penn. St., 87.)
(d) The State courts have jurisdiction of an action brought by a shareholder
on behalf of himself and other shareholders to recover of the directors of
an insolvent association damages for injuries insulting from their negligence and misconduct. (Britwkerhoff v. Bostwick, 88 N. Y., 52.)
(e) A State court has no power to make an order directing the receiver of a
national bank, who has been appointed by the Comptroller of the Currency,
to pay a judgment obtained against the bank before the receiver was appointed. (Ocean National Bank v. Carll, 7 Hun, 237.)



116

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

3. JURISDICTION OF STATE COURTS—Continued.

(/) Stato courts Lave no jurisdiction of the case of an embezzlement of the
funds of the association by one of its officers. (Commonwealth v. Felton,
101 Mass., 204; Commonwealth ex rel. Torrey v. Ketner, 92 Penn. St., 372.)
(g) The defense of usury may be set up in action brought in a State court.
(National Bank of Winterset v. F<yre, 52 Iowa, 114.)
4. UNITED STATES CAN NOT BE SUBJECTED TO JURISDICTION OF COURT:

Neither the Comptroller nor the receiver by putting in an appearance to a suit
can subject the United States to the jurisdiction of a court. (Case v. Terrell, 11 Wall,, 199.)
5. CITIZENSHIP:

A national banking association is for jurisdictional purposes a citizen of the
State in which it is located. (Davis v. Cook, 9 Nev., 134.)
XII. SUITS.
1. BY AND AGAINST ASSOCIATIONS:

(a) Suit may be brought against a national banking association though it is
in the hands of a receiver. (Bank of Bethel v. Pahquioque Bank, 14 Wall.,
383; Security National Bank v. National Bank of the Commonwealth, 2 Hun,
2«7 ; Green v. The Wallkill National Bank, 7 Hun, 63.)
(I)} Where the tax on shares is collected from the association it may bring a
suit to enjoin the collection of an illegal tax. (Cummings v. National Bank,
101 U. £.,153; Peltonv. Commercial National Bank, 101 U. £.,143; Boyer v.
Boyer, 113 U.S., 143.)
(c) A State law authorizing national banking associations which have been
converted from State banks to use the name of the original corporation for
the purpose of prosecuting and defending suits is not in conflict with the
national bankiug law, and therefore proceedings based upon a judgment
obtained before the conversion may be instituted by such association in
its former corporate name. (Thomas v. Farmers' Bank of Maryland, 46 Md.,
43.)
(d) A national banking association is a foreign corporation within the meaning of a State statute requiring corporations created by the laws of any
other State or country to give security for costs before prosecuting a suit in
the courts of the State. (National Park Bank v. Gunst, 1 Abb. N. 6\, 292.)
(e) As a national banking association can acquire no title to negotiable paper
purchased by it, it can maintain no action thereon in a State where the
person suing must be owner of the paper. (First National Bank of Bochester
v. Pierson, 24 Minn., 140.)
(/) But in a State where the holder may sue without respect to the ownership
an association may bring suit upon paper so acquired. (National Pemberton Bank v. Porter, 125 Mass., 333 ; Atlas National Bank v. Savery, 127 Mass.,
75.)
(g) Suits brought by a receiver can not be settled or compounded upon an
order of the Comptroller; this can be done only with the authority of the
court. (Case v. Small, 2 Woods, 78.)
(h) An action for money against a national bank whose corporate existence is
admitted is not a suit arising under the laws of the United States. ( Ulster
County Savings Institution v. Fourth National Bank, 8 N. Y., 162.)
2. B Y SHAREHOLDERS :

(a) A shareholder of a national banking association can not maintain an action
against the directors to recover damages sustained for neglect and mismanagement of the affairs of the association whereby it became insolvent and
its stock was rendered worthless. Such an action can be brought only by
the corporation itself. (Conway v. Halsey, 15 Vroom, 462.)
(b) But where the receiver refuses to bring an action against negligent directors to recover the amount which the shareholders have been compelled
to contribute to pay the debts of the association, an action against such
directors may be brought by a shareholder on behalf of himself and the
other shareholders. (Nelso7i v. Burrows, 9 Abb. N. C, 280.)
(c) And when the receiver is a director, and one of the parties charged with
misconduct and against whom a remedy is sought, the action may be
brought by a shareholder on behalf of himself and the other shareholders.
(Jfrinvkerhoffv. Bo8twick} 88 N. Y., 52.)



EEPOET OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

3. BY RECEIVERS :

(a) A receiver may sue either in his own name or the name of the bank.
{National Bank v. Kennedy, 17 Wall., VJ.)
(b) Suits and proceedings under the act in which the United States or their
officers or agents are parties, whether commenced before or after the appointment of a receiver, are to be conducted by the district attorney under
the direction of the Solicitor of the Treasury. (Bank of Bethel v. Pahquioque
Bank, 14 Wall, 383.)
(c) But section 3$0, Revised Statutes, is directory merely, and the employment
of private counsel by the receiver can not be made a ground of defense to a
suit brought by him. {Ibid.)
(d) Receivers may sue in the courts of the United States by virtue of the act
without reference to the locality of their personal citizenship.
(e) The provisions of the codes that every action must be brought in the name
of the real party in interest, except in the case of the trustee of an express
trust, or of a person authorized by statute to sue, does not apply to the
receiver of a national banking association suing in a Federal court held in
a State which has adopted the code procedure; for the right of the receiver
to sue is derived from the national banking law. (Stanton v. Wilkeson, 8
Ben., 357.)
(/) Under section 1001 of the Revised Statutes, no bond for the prosecution of
the suit, or to answer in damages or costs, is required on writs of error or
appeals issuing from or brought to the Supreme Court of the United States
by direction of the Comptroller of the Currency in suits by or against insolvent national banking associations, or the receivers thereof. (Pacific
National Bankv. Mixter, 114 U. 8., 463.)
4. BY CREDITORS OF'INSOLVENT ASSOCIATION:

(a) The creditors of an insolvent association must seek their remedy through
the Comptroller, in the mode prescribed by the statute j they can not proceed directly in their own names against the stockholders or debtors of the
bank. (Kennedy v. Gibson, 8 Wall., 498.)
(b) The writ of mandamus can not issue in a case where its effect is to direct
or control the head of an executive department in the discharge of an executive duty, involving the exercise of judgment or discretion. (United
States ex rel. Boynton v. Blaine, 139 U. S., 306.)
5. FOR USURY :

(a) The penalty for all illegal interest paid to a national banking association
within two years prior to the commencement of proceedings may be recovered in a single action, whether the amount was in one payment or in
several. (Hintermister v. First National Bank, 64 N. Y., 212.)
(b ) Where a bankrupt has paid usurious interest, his assignee may bring an action against the association to recover the penalty. ( Wright v. First National Bank of Greensburg, U. S. C. C. (Dist. Ind., 1878); Crocker v. First
National Bank of Chetopa, U. S. C. C. (Eighth Circuit, 1876); 3 Am. L. T.N. S.,
350.)
(c) The party who paid the usurious interest is the only party to the note who
is entitled to sue for the penalty. (Lazear v. National Union Bank of Maryland, &2Md.,78.)
(d) Under Revised Statutes, United States, 5198, providing that a suit against
a national bank for taking usurious interest must be commenced within
two years from "the time the usurious transaction occurred," the limitation begins to run from the time when such interest is paid. (National Bank
v. Carpenter, N. J., 19 A., 181.)
6. TO ENFORCE LIABILITY OF SHAREHOLDERS:

(a) When the full personal liability of shareholders is to be enforced the action must be at law. (Kennedy v. Gibson, 8 Wall., 505; Casey v. Galli, 94
U. £.,673.)
(b) And it may be at law, though the assessment is not for the full value of the
shares; for, since the sum each shareholder must contribute is a certain
exact sum, there is no necessity for invoking the aid of a court of equity.
(Bailey v. Sawyer, 4 DHL, 463.)
(c) But the suit may be in equity. (Kennedy v. Gib8ont supra.)
7. EXECUTION:

A judgment against a national bank in the hands of a receiver only establishes
the validity of the claim ; the plaintiff can have no execution on such judgment, but must wait r>ro rata distribution. (Bank of Bethel v. Pahquioque
Bank, 14 Wall., 383.)




118

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

g. ATTACHMENTS:

(a) When a. creditor attaches the property of an insolvent bank he can not
hold such property against the chiiin of a receiver appointed after the attachment suit was commenced. Such creditor must share pro rata with all
others. (First National Jlank of Selma v. Colbij, 21 Wall., 609 ; Harvey v.
Alien, 16 Blatch., 29.)
(b) No State court can issue an attachment against the funds of a national
hank. Although the provision forbidding attachments was evidently made
to secure equality among the general creditors in the division of the proceeds of the property of an insolvent bank, its operation is by no means
confined to cases of actual or contemplated insolvency ; but the remedy is
taken away altogether and can not be used under any circumstances. The
effect of the provision in section 524*2, Revised Statutes, is to write into all
State attachment laws an exception in favor of national banks, and all
such laws must be read as if they contained an exception in favor of national banks. (Pacific National Bank v. Mixter, 124 U. S., 721.)
NOTE.—This case overrules the decision of the New York court of appeals in
Robinson v. National Bank of New Berne (81 N. Y., 385), where it was held
that the national banking law does not prohibit attachments against the
property of national banks, except in eases where an act of insolvency has
been committed, or is contemplated. See also National Shoe and Leather
Bank v. Mechanics' National Bank, 89N. Y., 467; Eaynor v. Pacific National
Bank, 93 N. Y., 371; Southwick v. First National Bank of Memphis, 7 Hun,
96.
(c) Nor can an attachment be issued by a circuit court of the United States ;
for as by the law of Congress all power of issuing ^attachments against
national banks before judgment has been eliminated" from State statutes,
there can be no laws of the State providing for such a remedy on which
the circuit court can act. (Ibid.)
D. ABATEMENT :

An action brought by the creditor of a national bank is abated by a decree of a
district or circuit court dissolving the corporation and forfeiting its franchises. (First National Bank of Selma v. Colby, 21 Wall., 609.)
10.

ESTOPPEL:

(a) A shareholder against whom suit is brought to recover the assessment
made upon him by the Comptroller will not be permitted to deny the existence of the association, or that it was legally incorporated. (Casey v.
Galli, 94 U. A, 673.)
(b) Where one sued by a national bank is accustomed to deal with it as such,
and does so deal with it in respect to the matter in suit, he is estopped from
denying its incorporation. (National Bank of Fairhavenv. The Phcenix Warehousing Company, 6 Hun, 71.)
11. SUITS AGAINST LIQUIDATING ASSOCIATIONS:

A national bank which has gone into voluntary liquidation will continue to
exist as a body corporate for the purpose of suing and being sued until its
affairs are completely settled. (National Bank v. Insurance Company, 104
U. S., 54; Ordway v. Ctntral Naional Bank, 47 Md.s 217.)
12. TRANSITORY AND LOCAL SUITS :

The provision of the banking law, section 5198, Revised Statutes, which requires that actions brought against national banking associations in State
courts shall be brought in the county or city in which the association is
located, applies only to transitory actions ; it was not intended to apply to
actions local in their character. (Casey v. Adams, 102 U. S., 66.)
13. SURVIVAL OF SUITS:

Whether a suit against a director for negligent porformance of his duties, as
required by the statutes of the United States and the by-laws of the association, will survive against the executor or administrator denends upon
State laws. ( Witters v. Foster, U. S. C. C. {Dint Vt.), 25 Fed. -Rep.,737.)
XIII. EVIDENCE.
1. CERTIFICATE OF COMPTROLLER :

(a) The certificate of the Comptroller of the Currency that an association has
complied with all the provisions required to be complied with before commencing the business of banking is admissible in evidence upon a plea tii




REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

119

1. CERTIFICATE OF COMPTROLLER—Continued.

nul tic I corporation; and such certificate, together with proof that the association lias been acting as a national banking association for a long time,
is amply sufficient evidence to establish, at least prima facie, the existence
of the corporation. {Mix v. The National Bank of Blooming ton, 91 III., 20 ;
see also Merchants' National Bank of Bang or v. Glendon, 120 Mass., 97.)
(h) The certificate of the Comptroller that the association has complied with
all the provisions of law touching the organization of associations removes
any objection which might otherwise have been made to the evidence upon
which he acted. (Casey v. Galli, 94 U. S., 673 ; Thatcher v. West Biver National Bank, 10 Mich., 196.)
(c) And in a suit against the association or its shareholders such certificate of
the Comptroller is conclusive as to the completeness of the organization.
{Casey v. Galli, supra.)
(d) A letter from the Comptroller directing the receiver to institute suit, if not
objected to at the time, is sufficient evidence that the Comptroller has decided that the enforcement of the individual liability of the shareholders
is necessary. (Bowden v. Johnson, 107 U. S., 251.)
2. EVIDENCE OF INSOLVENCY :

(a) It is not necessary that the facts upon which the Comptroller bases his
action in appointing a receiver should be established by what is competent
legal evidence ; but he is left to be satisfied as best he can be, under the
peculiar circumstances of each case, of the facts and the necessity for the
exercise of his authority. (Platt v. Beebe, 57 N. Y., 330.)
(b) A return oinulla hona upon an execution issued against the property of a
national bank is proof of its insolvency. (Wheelock v. Kost, 77 III., 296.)
3. NECESSITY FOR ASSESSMENT BY COMPTROLLER :

It is not essential, in an action to enforce the individual liability of the shareholders of an insolvent national banking association, to ayer and prove
that the assessment was necessary ; for the decision of the Comptroller on
this point is conclusive. (Strong v. Southworth, 8 Ben,, 331; Kennedy v.
Gibson, 8 Wall., 505; Casey v. Galli, 94 U. 8., 673i)
XIV. CRIMES.
1. UNDER UNITED STATES LAWS:

(a) The willful misapplication of the moneys aud funds of a national banking
association, made an offense by section 5209, Revised Statutes, must be for
the use or benefit of the party charged or of some person or company other
than the association. (United States v. Britton, 107 U. S., 655.)
(b) The exercise of official discretion in good faith, without fraud, for the advantage or the supposed advantage of the association, is not punishable ;
but if official action be taken in bad faith, for personal advantage and
with fraudulent intent, it is punishable. (United States v. Fish, 24 Fed.
Bep., 585.)
(c) It is not necessary that the officer should personally misapply the funds
of the association. He will be guilty as a principal offender though he
merely procures or causes the misapplication. (Ibid.)
(d) A loan in bad faith, with intent to defraud the association, is a willful misapplication within the meaning of the statute. (Ibid.)
(e) It is no defense to a charge of embezzlement, abstraction, or misapplication
of the funds of a national banking association that the funds were used
with the knowledge and consent of the president and some of the directors.
The intent to defraud is to be conclusively presumed from the commission
of the offense. ( United States v. Taintor, 11 Blatch., 374.)
(/) Where the president, charged as a trustee with the administration of the
funds of the bank in his hands, converts them to his own use without authority for so doing, he embezzles and abstracts them within the meaning
of section 5209, Revised Statutes. (Tn the matter of Van Campen,2Ben , 419.)
(g) If, with intent to defraud the association, an officer allows a firm in which
he is a member to overdraw its account, he will be guilty of misapplying
the funds of the association. (Ibid).
(h) As the national banking law makes the embezzlement, abstraction, or
willful misapplication of the funds of a national banking association
merely a misdemeanor, a person who procures such an offense to be committed can not be punished under a State statute which provides that a
person who procures a felony to be committed may be indicted and comvicted of a substantive felony. (Commonwealth v. Fellon, 101 Mass., 204.)




120

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY.

1, UNDKK Ui\n I:I>,STATKS LAWS—Continued.

(i) An indictment charging defendants wifli aiding and abetting a director in
a willful misapplication of the money of an association must state facts
to show that there \\I\H been such misapplication committed by the director.
(United States v. Warner, U. S. C. C. (S. B. N. F.), Feb. 13, 188(3, 26, Fed.
Rep., 616.)
(j) Allowing the withdrawal of the deposit of one indebted to the association
can not be charged as a misapplication of tlie money of the association.
( United States v. Brit ton, 108 U. S., 193.)
(1c) It is not a willful misapplication of the moneys of the association within
the meaning of section 5209, Revised Statutes, for a president who is insolvent to procure the discounting by the association of his note not well
secured. (Ibid).
(I) To constitute the offense of a willful misapplication of the moneys, funds,
or credits of the association within section 5209, Revised Statutes, it is
not necessary that the person charged with the offense should have been
previously in the actual possession of such moneys, funds, and credits
under or by virtue of any trust, duty, or employment committed to him .
Nor is it necessary to the commission of this offense that the officer making
the willful misapplication should derive any personal benefit therefrom.
When the funds or assets of the bank are unlawfully taken from its possession, and afterward willfully misapplied by converting them to the use
of any person other than the bank, with intent to injure and defraud, the
offense as described in the statute is committed. ( United States v. Harper,
33 Fed. Rep., 471.)
(m) This criminal act may be done directly and personally, or it may be done
indirectly through the agency of another. If the officer charged with it has
such control, direction, and power of management by virtue of his relation
to the bank as to direct an application of its funds in such manner and
under such circumstances as to constitute the offense of willful misapplication, and actually makes such direction or causes such misapplication to
be made, he is equally as guilty as if it was done by his own hands.
(Ibid.)
(ti) Any entry on the books of the bank which is intentionally made to represent what is not true or what does not exist, with intent either to deceive
its officers or defraud the association, is a false entry within the meaning
of the statute. ( Unitei States v. Harper, supra.)
(o) It may be made personally or by direction.
(p) The erasure of figures already written in the books of a national bank and
the substitution of other figures which falsify the state of the account constitute a "false entry" within the meaning of section 5209, Revised Statutes, by which it is declared to be a misdemeanor to make " any false entry
in any book, report, or statement of the association with intent to injure
or defraud," etc. ( United States v. Crecelius, 34 Fed. Bep., 30.)
(q) Where false entries are made by a clerk at the direction of the president,
the latter is a principal. (In the matter of Van Campen, supra; United States
v. Fish, supra.)
(r) Prior to the act of February 26, 1881, a notary public holding his commission under a State had no authority to administer the oath required by section 5211, Revised Statutes; and therefore a cashier who made oath before
such notary to a false statement of the condition of his a sociation was not
guilty of perjury. ( United States v. Curtis, 107 U. S.t 671.)
(s) To constitute the offense of willful abstraction by an officer, denned by the
statute, it is necessary that the money or funds of the association should
be withdrawn by the officer or by his direction; that such taking or withdrawing should be without the knowledge or consent of the bank, or of its
board of directors; that the money or funds so taken or withdrawn should
be converted to the officer's own use, or for the benefit and advantage of
some person other than the association, and that this should be done with
intent to injure and defraud the association. (United States v. Harper,
supra.)
(t) A report of condition of a national bank, whether called for by the Comptroller of the Currency or not, which is a report in the usual form made by
an officer of the bank in his official capacity, if it contains a false entry
made with intent to deceive, is within Revised Statutes of the United States,
section 5209, which discloses such false entries to be a misdemeanor. ( United
States v. Hughitt, 45 Fed. Bep., 47.)

2. UNDER STATE LAWS:

(a) An officer of a national banking association can not be punished under State
laws for embezzling the funds of the association. (Commonwealth ex rel.
Torrey v. Ketner, 92 Penn. Si , 372 ; Commonwealth v. Fellon, 10L Mass., 204.)

(h) But where the offense committed by an officer is properly a larceny of the
funds, and not an embezzlement, he may be indicted under a State law.
(Commonwealth v. Barry, 116 Mass., 1.)
(c) And an officer may be punished under State laws for making false entries
in the books of the association with intent to defraud it. (Luberg v..Commonwealth,y4 Penn. St., 85.)
(d) The officers of a national banking association may be prosecuted under
State statutes for fraudulent conversion of the property of individuals deposited with, and in the custody of, the association. (Commonwealth v.
Tenrtey, 97 i/ass.,50; State v. Fuller, 34 Conn., 280.)
3. TERM "UNITED STATES CURRENCY'7 IN PENAL STATUTES:

The circulating notes of national banking associations are included in the
phrase "United States currency" when used in a penal statute. {State v.
Casting, 23 La. Ann., 1609.)
