no attempt to directly issue
bonds in excess of a prescribed limit would be made,
or if it were made could hope to succeed, since the
courts would be quick to put their seal of condemnation npon it.
Tae need, however, of an adequate
water supply is often urgent, and where const i'utional
barriers exist against raising the means for that purpose, a municipality or a legislature will not infrequently attempt to climb ever the same.
The recent decisions teach a lesson in that regard
whose significance is plain. They demonstrate (what,
indeed, was known before, though the fact is often
oveilooked) that courts are inclined to construe constitutional inhibitions strictly, and will not tolerate
efforts to do indirectly what it is forbidden to do
directly.
It may be said, too, that this isas it should
be.
It is ca3y to see good reasons why water debt
should stand on a separate footing and, therefore,
should not come within the provisions of a debt limit.
One cf these reasons is that the water brings its own
revenue, and hence iadebtedness incurred to obtain it
need not entail any burden upon the municipality.
The fact is recognized in many of the States, the
constitutions distinctly providing that water obligations shall not be counted in computing the indebted-

As many of the cities of the State had reached
this limit and yet wanted to spend money on their
water systems, the Illinois Legislature in 1899 passed a
water-works-imprcvement law the purpose of which
was to get around the difficulty. The new law allowed

thereof.
J udge Dibell pointed out that the only difference between this contract and any ordinary contract
which the city might make for the eolirgement of its
water works system on credit was that in this instance
it was the intent that the payment should be made
only out of the income to be derived by the city from
supplying the public with water through said system
at the rates prescribed, and that no other funds were
to be resorted to for such payment.

which is to be submitted to the people of the State for
adoption at the election on November 11. As was
pointed out in the columns of the Chronicle on July
6 last, the old instrument which has been in effect since
1875 is radically defective in the provisions relating to
debt and taxation. Bacause of these defects a decidedly anomalous situation has arisen concerning the
credit and the interest and debt-paying ability of the
municipalities (and also of some counties) of the State.

The foregoing shows that the Government debt on June 30 1901 was made up of (1) interest- bearing debt, $987,141,010, of
debt on which interest has ceased, $1,413,620 26, of (3) debt bearing no interest, $383,01^,584 63, making total gross debt,
$1,371,572,24189; subtracting from the total the net cash balance in the Treasury ($326,833,124 92) at the same date (June
30 1901), we have the net debt as it stood at the close of the last fiscal year, $1,044,739,119 97. To bring down the interestbearing debt to Oct. 1 1901 which, as stated, was $987,141,040 on June 30 1900 we must deduct the following: From
the Loan of 1908-1918 $1,357,200, from the Funded Loan of 1907, $9,131,350, from the Refunding Certificates, $120, from the
and from the Loan of 1904, $H12,650 (a deduction of $20,174,920), to reach the total of the
Loan of 19J5, $3,860,6
interest-bearing debt Octo er 1, 1901. which was $966,966,120.
For later and future details of the debt, see the same as issued every month in the Chronicle, the first or a later Saturday.
We now add, first, references to and citations from the laws which are the authority for the debt as it stands to-day, including
the new 2 per cent loan authorized March 14, 1900 second, the two tables on the next page, which exhibit all the particulars of the total debt of the United States on June 30 of each year from 1876 to 1901, and on October 1, 1901; third, the
Pacific Railroad bonds, which are never included in the Treasury debt statements.
" FUNDED LOAN OF 1 891 " (Column 1) 4^ per cents, continued at 2 per cent. The bonds of this issue were issued In exohange for the
413 per cent funded loan of 1891 by agreement between the Secretary of the Treasury and the holders, and were made redeemable at tfee
pleasure of the Government. Amount issued $25,364,500, but May 18 all were called for redemption on August Is, when interest ceased.
"CONSOLS OF 1 930."— (Column 9.) Bonds (2 per cent payable at the pleasure of the Government after 30 years) authorised
in " Act to define and fix the standard of value," etc. (for copy of Act see Chronicle, March 3, 1900, page 411), for the purpose of refunding

Secretary Gige's circular with reference to the operations for carrying out the refunding provisions of the bill in Chronicle, March 17, 1900,
page 5Qi). Of these 2 per cents there werd outstanding October 1, 1901, according to debt statement, $445,940,750.
" LOAN OF 1908-1918."— (Column 7.) The bonds included under this head are an issue of $200,000,000 3 per cents. They were
authorized by Act of June 13 1&98, and are known as the " War loan." The law provided that in allotting said bonds the individual subscriptions of the lowest amount must be first allotted. On the day the Act was signed a Treasury circular was issued (see circular in Chronicle of
Juue 13 1898, page 168,) inviting subscriptions for 32 days.from June 13 to July 14, for the amount of bonds stated, in both coupon and registered form, coupons in denominations of $i20, $100, $500 and $1,000, and registered in denominations of same amounts, and also in $5,000 and

taxes or duties of the United States, as well as from taxation in any form by or under State, municipal or local authority. Bonds to be sold at
not less than par in ooin, and proceeds to be applied to the redemption of outstanding 5-20s, par for par.
Outstanding (Ootober 1, 1901),
$248,241,700.
" REFUNDING CERTIFICATES" (Column 3).— Act of February 26 1879 authorized the Secretary of the Treasury to issue in exchang*
for lawful money of the United States certiticates of deposit of the denomination of ten dollars, bearing interest at the rate of 4 per cent, and
convertible at any time, with accrued interest, into the 4 per cent bonds described in the Refunding aot; the money so received to be applied
only to the payment of the bonds bearing interest at a rate not less than 5 per cent. On March 12 1879 the issue of these certificates and their
exohange into 4 per cent bonds were authorized; the certidcates were to draw 4 per cent interest from April 1 1879 and were converti >.e in
sums of $50 or its multiples. The amount issued at the close of the fiscal year (June 30 1879) was $39,308,110, but they had been converted
so rapidly that there were outstanding at that date only $12,848,210. On October 31 1879 the entire authorization had been reaohed, the
maximum amount of the issue being $40,012,750. Of these there were still outstanding on October 1, 1901, a total of $33,200.
" LOAN OF 1 925."— (Column 5.) Sales of bonds included under this designation were effected (1) in February 1895 to the amount of
$62,315,400 and (2) in February 1896 to the amount of $100,000,000. In a message to Congress under date of February 8, 1895 (published in
the Chronicle February 9 1895, page 244), President Cleveland stated in substance that in pursuance of Section 3700 of the Revised Statue*
the details of an arrangement have this day been concluded whereby bonds authorized under tlie act of July 14 1875, payable in coin at the
pleasure of the United States after the first day of Feb., 1925, with interest at the rate of 4 per cent per annum, to the amount of $62,315,400.
are to be issued for the purchase of gold ooin amounting to a sum slightly in excess of $65,000,000, to be delivered to the Treasury of the United
States, which sum added to the gold now held in our reserve will so restore such reserve as to make it amount to something more than $100,000,000. Such a premium is to be allowed to the Government upon the bonds as to dx the rate of interest upon the amount of gold realized at
331P. 0. per .inuum. At least one-half of thegold to be obtained is to be supplied from abroad. Section 3700 of the Revised Statutes is as follows:
"Sec 3700. The Seoretary of the Treasury may purchase coin with auy of the bouds or notes of the United States authorized by law at suoh
rates and upon such terms as he may deem most advantageous to the public interest."
For a construction of the "Refunding Act of 1870" and of the " Resumption Act of 1875," see Chronicle, February 18 1893, page 205.
The issue in February 1896 was an ordinary offering, open to all bidders, of $100,000,000 of the same bonds as the foregoin<— same in
date, same in time of maturity, same in rate of interest and time of interest payments. Consequently both issues are called the "Loan of 1925,"
of which there are outstanding $153,454,800.
"LOAN OF 1 904."— (Column 4.) The act of January 14 1875 authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury to use any surplus revenues from
time to time in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, and to issue, sell, dispose of, at not less than par in coin, either of the description!
of bonds of the United States described in the act of July 14 1870 for the purpose of redeeming on and after January 1 1879 in coin, at
the office of the Assistant Treasurer of the United States at New York, the outstanding legal-tender notes when presented in sums of not lee*
an fifty dollars. Under this authorization, and for the purpose mentioned, there were issued in Feb., 1894, payable in 10 years, $50,000,000 ot
000 of 5 per cents and in Nov 1894, there were issued $50,000,000 more for similar bonds for same purpose. Now outstanding $21,011,4.50.

LIMITATIONS.— Constitutional and statutory limitations
restricting municipal indebtedness have become quite a feature since
the crisis of 1873. In the States where these limitations are provisions
of the Constitution of course debts contracted in excess of such limitation are absolutely void. In Maine the amendment to the Constitution
took effect January 2, 1878, and is in the following form and words:
" Article XXII. Limitation of Municipal Indebtedness. No city or town
" shall create any debt or liability which, singly or in the aggregate,
" with previous debts or liabilities, shall exceed five per centum of the
" last regular valuation of said city or town provided, however, that
" the adoption of this article shall not be construed as applying to any
" fund received in trust by the said city or town, nor to any loan for the
" purpose of renewing existing loans, or for war, or to temporary loans
" to be paid out of money raised by taxation during the year in which
;

" they are made."

SAVINGS BANKS' INVESTMENTS-POWERS AND RESTRICTIONS.—The provisions regulating the investments and loans of savings banks and institutions for savings in the State of Maine are contained in Public Laws 1895, Chapter 161, Publio Laws 1893, Chapter

RR. Company at 2 per cent on stock, payable quarterly. This rental

HISTORY OF DEBT. New Hampshire's debt history is very brief.
This State has always been extremely conservative, and no bonds were
issued until after the breaking out of the CivU War. In 1866 New
Hampshire reported her funded indebtedness at $4,169,818, contracted exclusively for war purposes. June 1, 1869, the total outstanding was $3,213,962 22, against which the Treasurer reported
an asset of $77,082 89. The situation of the State debt now is as bel >w:

CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION.-At the November (1900)
election, it was voted to hold a convention to revise the State Constitution. The convention for this purpose wdl convene in the fall of
1902.
DEBT LIMITATION.—There is no restriction in the Constitution
of New Hampshire upon the debt-making power of the people through
the " General Court," except the following, which is the last olause of
Article 5 of Part Second of that instrument.
Provided, That the General Court shall not authorize any town to
loan or give its money or credit directly or indirectly for the benefit of
any corporation having for its object a dividend of profits or in any
way aid the same by taking its stocks or bonds.
The above is an amendment to the Constitution, which was ratified in
1877. The amendment would appear to be intended as a complete
estoppel to municipal loaning of money or credit to railroad and industrial corporations. It is to be noticed, however, that by its terms the
restriction does not specifically mention "cities," the words being

" any town."
In addition to the foregoing is the "Municipal Bond Act of 1895."
It tells in the matter of Issuing bonds what a municipal corporation
may do, what it must do, and what it cannot do. The law enacts: Sec.
1. The term "municipal corporation " means town, city, school district, village district

and village precinct.

Sec. 2.

Bonds issued must

be payable within 20 years, interest semi-annual, not exceeding 6 per
cent, may be payable in gold coin. If made payable in less than 20
years, may be extended but never beyond 20 years from time of issue.
See. 3. Bonds (except of cities) must be authorized by a vote of twothirds of all voters present and voting at an annual meeting of such
corporation, or at a special meeting if properly called, &o. (for which
Bonds must be signed by a majority of the Governing Board,
see act)
countersigned by Treasurer and have seal of corporation. Time
and place of payment and rate of interest, &c, may be delegated to
Governing Board. Sec. 4. City bonds must be authorized by resolution of City Council passed by at least two-thirds of members elected
to each branch taken by yeas and nays, signed by Mayor, countersigned
by Treasurer, seal of city affixed. Place of payment, rate of interest
and sale may be delegated to Treasurer. Sec. 5. Bonds shall be payable to bearer or to registered holder by name, and must be in form set
out in act— which see. In case bonds be made subject to call they must
contain statement to that effect as given in act. "The validity of any
bonds shall not be affected by any variation from the forms herein
Sec. 6. Treasurer to keep a book in which he shall
prescribed."

by virtue of this act and signed and sealed as hereinbefore provided
shall in favor of bona fide holders be conclusively presumed to have
been duly and regularly authorized and issued in accordance with the
provisions herein contained, and no holder thereof shall be obliged to

all debts must lie included except the following, which must be deducted— water debt, "cash and other means" In treasury and sinking
funds applicable to payment of debt so included; " but nothing contained in ins section shall prevent the issue of bonds for the purpose

DEBT LIMITATIONS.—There appears to be nothing In the Constitution or in the Statutes of Vermont providing a general limit to thfr
debt-making power of municipalities. Whatever in each case the Legislature authorizes, the city, town, county or other civil division can
issue. Of course the purpose of the improvement must be of a publio
character. Railroad subscriptions by towns are authorized by Section
2760, chapter 132 of the Revised Statutes, the section being as follows
Section 2760. A town may aid in the construction of a railroad organized under the general law by issuing bonds to aid such railroad,
by takine- capital stock therein, or in such other manner as it directs,
but the liability so assumed shall not exceed eight times the grand list
of the town at the time. Such aid shall be given in the way provided
in this chapter.
It will be noticed that this section contains a limit to the power
granted of making subscriptions in aid of railroads— to wit That the
subscriptions shall not exceed eight times " the grand list." To evolve
the " grand list" in Vermont, the authorities first prepare a schedule of
all the property, real and personal, of each individual, with valuations
entered at their real value in money, deducting debts owing after this
Is done "the grand list "Is made up by taking one per cent of that
amount, according to Section 317, Chapter 25, of the Revised Statutes,
which is as follows: "All taxable property shall be set in the list at one
per cent of its value in money on the first day of April of the year
" in which the list is made."
Following Section 2760, above cited, which authorizes subscriptions
In aid of railroads, are other sections describing the method in which
these subscriptions must be made, by calling a town meeting, voting,
Ac, &c. Then follows Section 2766, authorizing the issue of bonds.
Section 2766. Such town may issue bonds, with coupons payable
semi-annually, at a rate of interest not exceeding seven per cent, to
aid such road.
The only other general authority granted for the issue of bonds by
municipal corporations in Vermont is that given for refunding outstanding bonds and notes. The Sections which grant this power are
Sections 2769, 2775 and 2776, Chapter 132 of the Revised Statutes,
Sections 2769 and 2776 are as follows:
Section 2769. A town which has outstanding and unpaid negotiable
notes or bonds, issued to pay for stock subscribed to a railroad company, under any act of the general assembly, may issue other negotiable notes or bonds to pay or retire such outstanding notes or bonds.

7">. a town having outstanding and unpaid orders, notes,
bonds or coupons, issued under any act of the Legislature, for the purpose oi the erection of public buildings, or in aid of public Improve-

ments^ or tar the payment Of soldiers' bounties, may issue other
negotiable notes or bonds for the purpose of retiring the outstanding
orders, notes, bonds and coupons, in the same manner that it may issue
new notes or bonds to pa> or retire outstanding notes or bonds Issued
in aid of a railroad; and the powers, restrictions, duties and liabilities
of the town and town officers in the matter shall be the same as is
provided by law in the ease of the refunding by a town of town bonds
Issued in aid of a railroad; and the interest on BUCh new notes or bonds
shall be provided for in the same manner.
By Section 277f> municipal corporations other than towns have the
auie refunding powers granted them which are conferred upon towns
by the two sections last above cited.
The only other section which we need quote is Section 2751 of
Chapter 130. which names the objects for which towns may vote money.
If money is appropriated for any other object, the Charter or a special
statute must be looked to for the authority.
- OTIOM 2751.—Towns in town meetings may
vote such sums of
money as they |udge necessary for the support of the poor; for laying
out aiid repairing highways; for the prosecution ana defense of the
common rights and Interests of the inhabitants, and for other necessary
incidental town expenses.

OTIOM 4106.— The words "trust coinpanv" in this chapter shall be
construed to include savings banks and trust companies. A savings
bank, Barings institution or trust company may deposit on call in
banks, banking associations or trust companies in this State, or in the
cities of New York, Boston, Chicago, Albany, Philadelphia, or Concord,
New Hampshire, or in any other legal designated depository under
the laws or the united States, or in national banks in the cities of
St. Paul, Minneapolis and Kansas City, with or without interest, as
may lie agreed upon, sums not exceeding in the aggregate twenty per
cent of the assets of such savings bank, savings institution or trust

company.

Section 4107 enacts that savings banks may hold real estate acquired
on foreclosure or otherwise taken to secure debt, but it must be sold
within five years, unless certain prescribed steps are taken, when an
extension may be granted by the iuspector of finance for not exceeding three years additional.
Section 4108 authorizes savings banks to
demand and receive on loans 6 per cent interest.

SAVINGS BANKS INVESTMENTS-PRIVILEGES AND RESTRICTIONS.—The provisions of law relating to savings banks are
Chapter 174 of the Vermont statutes, Sections 4066 to 4131
amended from time to time. The first section having reference to investments is Section 4096, which treats of real estate
mortgages. It authorizes the investment of 70 p.c. of the assets in such
mortgages, one-sixth at least of which " shall be upon real estate in this
State "—that is Vermont. A proviso adds that ouly 50 per cent of the
assets may be invested in mortgages on real estate outside of Vermont.
Sections 4097 and 4098 relate only to obtaining and paying for insurance. Section 4099 is as follows, and has reference to investment
on personal security.
Section 4099— No loans or investments on personal seourity shall be
made except upon at least two approved names, uot less than two of
found

whom

reside in this State or within fifty miles of the institution making
such investment, and such personal loans or investments shall not be
for a Longer time than one year; and not more than oue-third of the
ts of a savings bank, savings institution or trust company shall be
Invested in personal secur.'
Section 4100 only covers a single point; that is to say it restricts to
fire per cent of the deposits the amount which a savings bank may
Invest in the lot and building for the transaction of its business, and
adds that a revenue may be derived from portions of the building not
required for the bank's use. The next section (Section 4101) covers
the most important of the provisions relating to investments that are
contained iD the law. We give the section in full below. The separation
into paragraphs and the ligures in parenthesis which numberand begin
the pira graphs are our own.

Section 4101— With the foregoing exceptions, the moneys deposited
Savings Banks, Savings Institutions and Trust Companies, and
theiucouu therefrom, shall be invested only as follows:

DEBT LIMITATIONS.—There seems to be no provision in the Constitution of Massachusetts limiting the power of the Legislature to
create State indebtedness, or limiting its power to authorize municipal
indebtedness. Statutes general and special have, however, been passed
on this subject with respect to Cities and Towns.

the Revised or "Public Statutes." The important sections to be cited

Provides that cities and towns shall not Inoux debt
except In the manner ami within the limitations prescribed In this
chapter
Provides las a preliminary for determining whether the
limitation fixed l>y Section (has been reached by any municipality)
thai the water debt and the sinking funds shall be deducted from the
total debt.

Provides that the first 17 sections of chapter 29 shall not
apply to debts Incurred In aid of railroads, to water scrip issued under
special statutes, or to Indebtedness for a fire district.
Provides that no city or town except as provided in the
following section shall become Indebted Id an amount which exceeds 3
per cent on the last prteeding valuation [but amended as noted below.]
Provides that cities and towns which were indebted on
S
the 13th day of June. 1875, to an amount not less than '2 percent on
valuation for thai year may "increase such indebtedness to the extent
"of an additional one per cent on that valuation and no more."
Provides that cities, &©., "may by ordinary rote incur
debt- for tempory loans iii anticipation 01 the year's taxes and of the
year
ext ensuing:
enow 7—Provides that other debts than those referred to in
section t> shall be incurred only by a vote of two-thirds of the voters
nt at a town meeting, of two-thirds of all the members of each
ranch of the city council, and approved by the Mayor; or it the Mayor
disapproves, by another like vote alter notice of such disapproval.
Provides that debts incurred for water must be payable
within 30 years; In constructing sewers within '20 years; all other debts
within 10 years.
••

S-

rlONS 9 to 17 inclusive, contain Interesting provisions relating to
sinking funds and other allied matters
Hon IS -Provides that any city which at a meeting of its voters
his accepted by a two-thirds vote any act to supply said city with
water, mav bv a vote of a majority of the members of each branch of
the city council contract debts and issue bonds for the purpose.
enow 19 Provides that towns, Ac, shall not Increase their debt
by subscriptions in aid of railroads beyond 3 percent of valuation but
tie limitation of this section shall not apply to temporary loans mentioned in Section 6
s- 20 to 23, which are the final ones of Chapter 29, have no
reference to the subject we arc discussing and need not be cited.
v* the reader has seen, the foregoing (Section 4, Chapter 29) Axes the
general debt limitation for cities aud towns at 3 per cent.
This general limitation was lowered by a later law. The provision is
found in Chapter 312, Section 2 of the Laws of 1885, which provision
reduces the general debt limitation of cities from 3 per cent to 2*2 per
cent on the average valuation for the preceding three years. Worcester,
Lynn. Gloucester and Brockton are iu the same Section exempted from
the operation of the Section until January 1, 1889— later than 1889 the
only exemptions we And in the Statutes are special in their purpose,
aot general. In 1893, however, authority was given for an addition of
ij per cent, to provide public playgrounds— that is to say, under Chapter 225, Laws of 1893, any town or city (except Boston) may incur an
indebtedness of *a% of the assessed valuation beyond the limit of in-

debtedness for playgrounds
The temporary loans provision, as it appears above in Section 6
(Chapter 29), is also changed by Section 4, Chapter 312, by omitting
"and of the year next ensuing " so that at present cities and towns by
ordinary tote can incur debts for temporary loans in anticipation of
the taxes of the year only in which such debts are incurred.
Temporary loans (for a term not exceeding one year) in anticipation
of money to be derived from an issue of bonds or other form of indebtedness, duly authorized, are provided for by a sta'ute approved June
14, 1398. The same Act states that the time within which said bonds,
etc., shall become due shall not be extended by reason of said tempor"
ary loan.
The foregoing statements cover all the material facts general in their
In addition to
application passed with respect to debt limitation.
these General Provisions there are various Special Laws which contain
exceptions to the general law as to debt limitation, which apply to
Cambridge, Lynn, Newburyport, Waltham, Worcester, &c, &o.
Boston was formerly subject to a special statute (Chapter 178 of the
Laws of 1385) limiting its debt to 2 per cent, but this was repealed by
Chapter 399 of the Acts of 1900, and that city is now subject to Chapter 312 of the Laws of 18^5 as above.

SAVINGS BANK INVESTMENTS-POWERS AND RESTRICTIONS.— The provisions regulating the investments and loans of

savings banks and institutions for savings in Massachusetts are contained in Bectlon 21, Chapter 317, acts of 1894, and amendments

In Boston are limited
by Chapter 399 of the Acts of 1900 as
on property, exclusive of the State
Section 1. The taxes assessed
tax, county tax and sums required by law to be raised on account
of the city debt, shall not exceed in any year in the city of Boston ten and one-half dollars, and in any other city twelve dollars,
on every one thousand dollars of the average of the assessors' valuations of the taxable pi operty therein for the preceding three years, the
valuation for each year being first reduced by the amount of all abatements allowed thereon previous to the thirty-first day of December In
the year preceding said assessment and any order or appropriation
requiring a larger assessment than is herein limited shall be void.
Section 2. Chapterone hundred and seventy-eight<f the Acts of the
year eighteen hundred and eighty -five and Chapter two hundred and
eighty one of the Acts of the year eighteen hundred and eighty-seven
are hereby repealed.
Section 3. This Act shall take effect upon its passage. [Approved
:

June 2b, 1000.]
The new law,

in repealing Chapter 178 of the Laws of 1885, repealed
a special Act limiting the indebtedness of the City of Boston to 2 per
cent of the assessed valuation, etc etc. Boston consequently is now
subject to Section 2, Chapter 312, Laws of 1885, which places the debt
limitation at 2*2 per cent of the average assessors' valuations of thetaxable property for the preceding three years. Reference to this
1885 law will be found in the debt limitations for the State of Massachusetts. See also Chronicle of August 4, 1900, page 250.
The foregoing limitation is of course exclusive of debts created for
water supply, and further exceptions have been made from year to
year by different legislatures, authorizing bonds outside of the debt
limit for various purposes, especially enumerated.
It is proper to state that under Chapter 93, Acts of 1S91. the city is
authorized to anticipate Its authority to borrow money within its debt
limit for any current municipal year.

Section 20. "The outstanding notes, bonds and contracts of towns
shall be paid and be f ultilled according to the tenor thereof, and all
public worgs now authorized to be prosecuted shall be prosecuted, and
all indebtedness now authorized to be iuourred on account thereof may
be incurred according to the tenor of the authority therefor.
Section 21. No town shall, without special statutory authority
therefor, incur any debt in excess of three per centum of the taxable
property of such town, including the indebtedness of such town on
the tenth day of April, one thousand eight hundred seventy-eight, but
the giving of a new note or bond, for a pre-existing debt, or for
money borrowed and applied to the payment of such pre-existing debt,
Is excepted from the provisions of this section, and the amount of any
sinking fund shall be deducted in computing such indebtedness."

A proposed new constitution, containing certain limitations as to
State and other debts, failed of adoption at the November election in
1898, was ag*ain submitted to popular vote in 1899 and again defeated.
There was a Constitutional Amendment adopted in 1900, but it did
not relate to municipal indebtedness
SAVINGS BANK INVESTMENTS AND RESTRICTIONS.-In
the Revised Statutes of Rhode Island (which were revised in 1896)Sections 54, 55, 56, etc., of Chapter 178, Title 19 (on page 548), will be
found the provisions of law with reference to Savings Bank Investments. Section 54, which recites in detail the stocks, bonds, etc., these
institutions are allowed to put their money in is as follows
8kction 54. Institutions for savings shall invest their receipts—
(1) In public stocks or bonds of any State or of the United States,
(2) Or in any bank stock, or in notes or bonds of any town or city,
(3) Or in notes of any school district or tire district in any New Eng
land State,
(4) Or in such corporate stocks or bonds as they may deem safe and
secure,

Or they may discount notes, bonds or drafts of individuals or corporations, with two other responsible endorsers, sureties or guarantors.
(6) Or the notes, bonds or dratts of individuals or corporations secured
by the public notes, stocks or bonds of any State of the United States,
or of any town or city or of any school district or tire district in any
New England State, or by the stock or bonds of any corporation which
may be deemed to be safe, or by mortgage on real estate.
Concerning Sections 55 and 56, the tirst appears to give savings
Institutions quite extensive powers as to making and keeping deposits
(5)

commercial banks. When so kept, however, they are to be kept
" payable on demand whether drawing interest or not."
The two
sections are subjoined.
8ection 55.—-No such institution shall have an amount exceeding
one-half of its receipts invested in notes, bonds or drafts of individuals
or corporations, unless secured by some public notes, bonds or stocks as
aforesaid, or by mortgage on real estate: but the preceding section shall
not be so construed as to forbid any such institution from placing and
holding on deposit in any bank such reasonable amount of their receipts as is customary and they may deem proper, payable on demand,
whether drawing interest or not.
Section 56.—No money shall be loaned by any institution for savings to any trustee, director or other officer of such institution.
For the other provisions of the law as they now are we would reiei
our readers to the Revised Statutes of 1896.

Note.—For debts of minor civil divisions not found among the statements given below, see "Additional Statemetits" at the end of this State.
The relation which the towns, cities and boroughs of this State bear
to one another is peouliar, and requires a word of explanation. The
is divided into eight counties, and these counties are made up of
towns, numbering in the aggregate 167. The towns are the civil unit,
and on the assessed valuation (which is called the " Grand List of each
town ") is levied the tax for State purposes as well as the tax for town
expenditures. Within the town is often situated a city or a borough, or
both, all of which may at the same time have bonds outstanding. There
are ten cities, each with one exception bearing the same name as the

State

town in which it lies. Of late several towns and cities whose limits
were about Identical have been consolidated and the outstanding
bonds of both town and city are reported together without distinction.
This is the case with the city and town of Hartford, which previous to
April, 1896, reported their debts separately. The oity and town of
New London have been consolidated and also Bridgeport city and
town. On December 7, 1897, city, town and school district or New
Haven were likewise consolidated.
The borough stands in about the same relation to the town as does
the city. The grand list as determined for the town is used by both the
city and the borough in levying taxes, the city, for instance, putting a

its own on its share of the total grand list of the town. This tax
additional to the town tax. In some instances the schools are in the
charge of school districts, which also are empowered to issue bonds
and to levy a tax, so that to cover the total tax paid by a city it is
necessary to take into account the State, town, city and school district
levies. In the statements which follow we give under one heading the
town and city, wherever they bear the same name, for though distinct
corporations, their debts are to a greater or less extent the debts of a
single community.

HISTORY OF DEBT.—The historical details of New York's State
debt from 1817 to 1894 will be found in the State and City Supplement of April, 1894. page 41.
During a period of eleven years ending in 1893 the State debt was
paid at the average of $1,000,000 per year, and practically wiped out.
At the November election in 1895 the proposition to issue bonds of
the State to the amount of $9,000,000, for the purpose of enlarging and
Improving the Erie Canal, the Champlain Canal, and the Oswego Canal,
was submitted to the voters and carried. These bonds have all been
Issued to date, but nearly $500,000 have been paid off from the proceeds
of the tax levied for a sinking f una, leaving outstanding Oct. 1, 19ol,
$8,500,660, which, with the $275,000 Comptroller's Certificates,
$400,000 Adirondack Park Bonds and $900,000 Defense Bonds, a total
of $10,075,660, constituted the State's indebtedness on Oft. 1, 1901.

DEBT LIMITATION— Cities,

Counties.

Towns and Villages.—

Constitution of New York State puts a general and
uniform limit to the power of all counties and cities of the State to contract and put out their obligations, leaving to the Legislature to fix the
debt making power of villages and towns only. These provisions are
found in Article 8, Section 10. We give that section in full. The
separation into paragraphs and the figures in parenthesis which number and begin the paragraphs are our own, we having inserted them so
thu t those who need to ref er.to or use any particular portion can the more
readily find the part desired. With that exception we give Section 10
of Article 8 as it reads, preserving even the punctuation.
(1) No county, city, town or village shall hereafter give any money
or property, or loan its money or credit to or in aid of any individual,
association or corporation, or become directly or indirectly the owner
nor shall any
of stock in, or bonds of, any association or corporation
such county, city, town or village be allowed to incur any indebtedness
except for county, city, town or village purposes. This section shall
not prevent such county, city, town or village from making such provision for the aid or support of its poor as may be authorized by law.
(2) No county or city shall be allowed to become indebted for any
purpose or in any manner to an amount which, Including existing

an amendment to the Constitution was adopted changing this paragraph to read as follows: Whenever the boundaries of any city are
the same af those of a county, or when any city shall inolude within
its boundaries more than one county, the power of any county wholly
included within such city to become indebted shall cease, but the debt
of the county heretofore existing shall not, for the purposes of this
section, be reckoned as a part of the city debt.]
(8) The amount hereafter to be raised by tax for county or city purfwses, in any county containing a city of over one hundred thousand
nhabitants, or any such city of this State, in addition to providing for
the principal and interest of existing debt, shall not in the aggregate
exceed in any one year two per centum of the assessed valuation of the
real and personal estate of such county or city, to be ascertained as
prescribed in this section in respect to county or city debt.
By the terms of the foregoing section, Paragraph (1), every " County,
Citv, Town or Village" is included in the prohibition against (1) loaning' "its money or credit," (2) in becoming "directly or indirectly the
owner of stock in or bonds of any association or corporation," and (3)
In Incurring "any indebtedness except for County, City, Town or Village purposes." Most of the other paragraphs include only Counties
;

;

and

Cities.

„

.

,

According to Paragraph (6) It seems that "any debt hereafter Incurred by any portion or part of a city, if there shall be any such debt,
shall be included In ascertaining the power of the city to become other
wise indebted."

We would also call special

attention to Paragraph

(7),

declaring that

amended in 1899] whenever the boundaries of any city may be the
same as those of a county or when any city shall include within its
boundaries more th*n one county, " the power of any county wholly included withm such city to become indebted shallcease, but the debt of the
[as

county heretofore existing shall not * * be reckoned as a part of
the city debt."
,
.
In May 1886 the New York Court of Appeals decided at the end of a
litigation begun in July 1885 that the sinking fund was not apartot
the city debt within the meaning of the above provision of the Constitution limiting the creation of debt to 10 per cent of the assessed valuation of the real estate.
Towns and Villages are not limited in their debt-making power by the
Constitution. Those municipalities will be govenned by general or
special statutes.

The 1895 Legislature passed an act " for the protection of bona fide
purchasers and holders of coupon bonds and of municipal corporations
against misfeasance, malfeasance or negligence of public officers."
The full text of this law was published in the Chronicle of June 8,
1895. V. 60, p. 1023.

EXEMPTION FROM TAXATION—There is one general New York

statute with reference to exemption from taxation " for town, county,
municipal or State purposes " of a class of bonds " issued by any village,
city, town or county" in the 8tate, which seems to have a wider application than is generally known. As originally pas-sed in 1881 the exemption applied only to bonds issued to pay up or retire bonds "created
to aid in the construction of any railroad." A new law was passed In
"
1886 (Chapter 316) making the tax exemption apply to " new bonds
Issued under the act to retire any of the then "present bonded indebtedness of anj village, city, town or county in this State." With reference
" All new
to such new bonds the third section of the act of 1886 says
bonds Issued by any village, city, town or county in this State under
the provisions of this act shall be exempt from taxation for town,
oounty, municipal or State purposes until the period when they are
made payable." In 1893 still another law was passed making the
statute cover any bonded indebtedness. The law as it now stands will
be found in editorial on page 4 of the April, 1894, Supplement.
In addition to the foregoing there are special laws authorizing special
Issues that are exempt, but which we have not room to quote here.
For New York City there is a general statute which directs how any of
That
its bonds may be made exempt from city and county taxation.
statute is subjoined.
Sec. 137. The Commissioners of the " Sinking Fund of the City of New
York for the redemption of the city debt," when duly authorized by
ordinance of the Common Council, may, by concurrent resolution,
direct that the bonds and stocks of said city, issued pursuant to law,
after June ninth, eighteen hundred and eighty, shall he exempt from
taxation by said city and by the county of New York, but not from taxa
tion for State purposes; and all bonds and stocks issued pursuant to
such authority shall be exempt from taxation accordingly, provided
that said bonds and stocks shall not bear interest exceeding the rate of
four and one-half per orituiM per annum. The bonds and stocks of the
city of New York issued pursuant to the provisions of this section shall
express upon their face the fact that they are exempt from taxation by
the city and county of New York, but not from State taxation, and
shall refer to this section, and to the ordinance of the Common Council,
and the resolution of the Commissioners of the Sinking Fund authorizing their issue.

SAVINGS BANK INVESTMENTS-POWERS AND RESTRIC1898 the New York Legislature passed an amendment to

TIONS— in

paragraph 6, Sec. 116, of the Savings Bank law of 1892. The amendment extended investments of savings banks to first mortgage railroad

Kings, the county government being consolidated with that of the'city
on January 1, 1896, under the provisions of Chapter 954 of the
Laws of 1895. Under the provisions of this act " the debt of the said
county shall not be deemed to be or be included as a part of the
debt of the City of Brooklyn, within the meaning of the provision of
the Constitution of the State of New York limiting the power of cities
to incur indebtedness." ISee Chronicle, vol. 62, p. 49.] The towns of
Flatbush, New Utrecht and Gravesend were annexed to the City of
Brooklyn in 1894 and the town of Flatlands became a ward of the city

Island City. A good part of the old County of
included in the Greater New York, and a law changing
the name of tbat portion of the old county ouUirie of Greater New
iork to Nassau County went into effect January 1, 1899.
The
amount of the outstanding bonds of this oounty which will be chargeable to the city of New York has been finally determined by the
Supreme Court (V. 71, p. 875.) Under this decision the city of New
York is liable for $3,796,032 11 of the old debt of Queens County as
t stood at the date of division
and the remaining $1.01 1,967 89
becomes an obligation of Nassau County. Instead of apportioning
certain boLds to New York City and to Nassau County, the debt and
interest will not be divided, but will be paid by New York City,
Nassau County paying over its proportion as it becomes due. New
York City pays -78952414973 of the principal and interest as it
becomes due, and Nassau County -21047585027.
The statement below shows the obligations of the old County of
Queens which remained outstanding on Sept.
1901.

Legislature meets annually the second Tuesday of January,

HISTORY OF DEBT.— New Jersey has always been a conservative
State; there are consequently no facts out of which to construct ahistory of debt issues. In a report made in 1838 the financial officer of
the State affirmed that New Jersey had put out no obligations of any
kind or loaned its credit to any company. The Constitution of 1844
forbade the creating of a State debt exceeding one hundred thousand dollars except for purposes of war, &c, as will more fully appear in the
item below with respect to "debt limitation." This exception, under
which it was allowable to exceed the hundred-thousand-dollar limit
became operative on the occasion of the breaking out of our Civil War.
Quite a debt was created at that period the small amount the State
now owes is the remnantof those war issues. The details are as follows.

(1) THE STATE la rest]
to Its debt-making power by the
State Constitution. In Article IV, Section VI, paragraphs 3 and 4, the
whole subject N disposed of. The third paragraph forbids a loan of the
State's credit, and the fourth paragraph forbids the creation of debt.
TheHenrovisions are as follows.
3. The credit of the State shall not be directly or Indirectly loaned in

any

case.

4. The Leirislatnre shall not in any maimer create any debt or debts,
Uabilityor liabilities of the State, which -hall singly or in the aggregate
with any previous debts or liabilities at any time exceed one hundred
thousand dollars, except for purposes of war, or to repel invasion, or to
suppress insurrection, unless the same shall be authorized by a law for
some single object of work, to be distinctly specified therein; which
law -.hall provide the ways and means, exclusive of loans, to pay the
-est of such debt or liability as it falls dne, and also to pay and
discharge the principal of snch debt or liability within thirty-five years
from the time of the contracting thereof, and shall be irrepealable until
snch debt or liability and the intere-t thereon are fuily*ftaid ai:d discharged and no such law shall take effect until it shall, at a general
election, have been submitted to the people, and have received the
sanction of a majority of all the votes cast for and against it at such
election and all money to be raised by the authority of such law shall
be applied only to the specific object stated therein, and to the payment
of the debt thereby created. This section shall not be construed to refer to any money that has been, or may be, deposited with this State by
the fiovernineiit of the United States.
;

:

fied therein, etc.

;

be seen, given in the

i

is,

as will

(2) CITIES, COUNTIES, TOWNS, Etc., are also restricted in thj
of oertain kinds of debt by Article I, paragraphs 19 and 20, o*the Constitution. We give the paragraph in full.
19. No county, city, borough, town, township or village shall
hereafter give any money or property, or loan its money or credit,
to or in aid of any individual, association or corporation, or become
security for or be directly or indirectly the owner of any stock or
bonds of any association or corporation.
20. No donation of land or appropriation of money shall be made
by the State or any municipal corporation to or for the use of
any society, association or corporation whatever.
It will be noted that the above prohibition relates to the giving of
money, property or oredit of cities, &o., to individuals, associations, or
corporations, &c, and that the prohibition is absolute, forbidding the
doing of such acts in any form, shape or manner. There is one other
restriction of the State Constitution, and that is found in Article IV.
Section VII., paragraph 11, which forbids the Legislature passing any
spec ial laws "regulating the internal affairs of towns and coutuie$";
in this and in all other cases in which according to the judgment ox
the Legislature general laws are feasible, the Constitution states that

making

geueral laws must be provided.
In compliance with this last provision the Legislature has passed
many general laws covering bonded indebtedness of cities, towns, etc.
They are so numerous they cannot be cited here. We would refer the
reader to the Revised Statutes of New Jersey published in 1896 under
the heading "Municipal Bonds" pages 693 to 716 both inclusive; and
also to the same heading ("Municipal Bonds") pages 2220, etc.

TAX EXEMPTION.— The State of New Jersey passed in 189*
a general statute which exempts from taxation the bonds, securities and other evidences of indebtedness of munioipal corporations
the provision covers not only the bonds, etc., to be hereafter
issued, but those as well that have been heretofore issued. It is a
sweeping statute, and one which is of decided interest to the holders of
the municipal securities of the State. The full text of it may be found
in the Statu and City Supplement for October, 1898, page 58.

passed in 1876. Since then the legislative tendenoy in the matter of
investments has been in the direction of allowing the management of
these institutions a wider choice and a larger discretion. In 1878 the
limits of the 1876 law were broadened in several particulars by a new
act of two sections, the first taking the place of section 26 of the act of
1876. In 1886 still another law was passed in place of the first section
of the law of 1878. Again in 1889 an act was passed extending materially the provisions of section two of the law of 1878, which covered the same subject matter contained in section 29 of the original law
of 1876, and thereby section 26 of the law of 1876 was superseded by
the law of 1886, and section 29 was superseded by the law of 1889. In
1901 Section two was further amended in the way specified below. In
1896 a supplement approved March 30, 1896 (Chapter 139, laws of
1896) to the law of 1876, making school district bonds an authorized
investment, went into effect. In 1897 an act was passed (approved
April 9) authorizing investments in bonds issued by commissioners
appointed by the Supreme Court of the State. In 1899 a further
supplement extending the permissible line of municipal investments
so as to include the bonds of townships and boroughs was approved
March 24. An attempt to add such securities to the list was made In
1898, but the measure then failed to receive the approval of the Gov-

of Original Thirteen

The 1899 law is as follows:
Section 1. It shall be lawful for any savings bank in this State to
invest its funds in the bonds of any city, county, town or township of
this State issued pursuant to the authority of any law of this state, or
in the bonds of any borough or village or school district of this State
issued pursuant to the authority of any law of this State; provided,
such borough, village or school district shall not, within the tea
years next preceding, have defaulted in the payment of any part of
either principal or interest of any legal debt or obligation thereof and
provided further, that the total indebtedness of any such borough or
village does not exceed ten per centum of its assessed valuation, and
such school district bonds are by law charged upon all the property of
the inhabitants of such district, or in any interest-bearing obligatioa
(other than obligations commonly known as improvement certificates)
issued by the city, county, town, township, borough or village ia
which such bank or institution is situated.
The following is the law of 1897 (approved April 9, 1897):
"8ec. 1. It shall be lawful for any bank, trust company, savings bank
or savings institution * * * incorporated under the laws of this
State, to invest moneys belonging to or deposited with any such companies in any bonds authorized by the laws of this State to be issued
by any commission appointed by the Supreme Court of this State by
virtue of any law of this State."
We omit the law of 1896 with reference to school distrlot bonds
because its provisions are included in the laws of 1899, quoted above.
Next we give the leading provisions of the general law as to investernor.

We do

not reprint the real estate provisions, as they cover a matter
to our present subject. It is sufficient to say that they are
two in number, marked (a) and (bj, and may bo summarized as below
faj authorizes the holding of a plot for erection of a banking building or buildings, portions of which may be rented, but the cost of lot
and bnlldlngs must not exceed 50% of the net surplus of the corporation:
fbj all purchases under foreclosure sales upon mortgages owned by
the corporation or sales under judgments or decrees obtained for debts
due, etc.: and all such real estate must be sold within five years unless,
on application to the State Board having supervision of Savings Banks,
time shall be extended.
But the character of permissible investments was further greatly
enlarged by the law of 1886, which is as follows
Section 1. That it shall be lawful for any savings bank or savings institution, incorporated under any law of this State, to invest moneys
deposited with it in the bonds of any city or county of any State of the
Unitea States of America, which have been or may be issued pursuant
to the authority of any law of any such State; provided, no such city or
county has, within ton years previous to making such investment by
any siioh savings bank or savings institution of this State, defaulted in
the payment of any part- of either principal or interest of any debt
authorized by law of such State to be contracted; and provided, further, that the" total indebtedness of any such city or county is limited
by law to ten percentum of its assessed valuation.
By anotber act the banks also have the right to invest in railroad
ionds under certain restrictions. The authorization was given by
Section 2 of an act approved February 22, 1888. Subsequently (April
27, 1838,) this Section 2 was repealed. On March 27, 1889, however,
The section is as follows
It was again re-enacted.
Section 2. That it shall be lawful for any savings bank in this State
to invest its funds in first mortgage bonds of any railroad company
which has paid dividends of not less than four per centum per annum
regularly, on their entire capital stock, for a period of not less than
live years next previous to the purchase of such bonds, or in any consolidated mortgage bonds of any such company authorized to be issued
to retire the entire bonded debt of such company.
The other law referred to above passed in 1889 amending section 2
of the law of 1878 is as below. It relates to loans on collaterals. As
noted above, a slight but very important alteration in the phraseology
of thi-* section was made by a law approved March 22, 1901, and
whi -h forms chapter 148 of the laws of 1901. The new words introduced are indicated by brackets [ ] below.
Section 2. Hereafter it shall not be lawful for any saving institution in this State to loan the money on deposit with the same, or any
part thereof, upon notes, bills of exchange or drafts, excepting upon
the additional pledge of collateral security or securities, which collateral security or securities shall be of the same nature and character as
those in which the money deposited may be invested as directed in the
Erst section of this Act, or the capital stocks of national and State banks,
or [the capital stock or bonds of] other corporations of this State,
which nave not defaulted in the payment of interest [or] dividends
within two years next preceding the time of such loan, and then only
to the extent of eighty per centum of the market value of such collaterals: provided, that the total amount of such loans shall not exceed
fifteen per centum of the total deposits held by such institution.
In addition to tbe foregoing (according to section 27 of the general
law of 1876) the managers can keep on hand or on deposit in any bank
tn the State, or in any trust or safe deposit company in New Jersey,
New York or Pennsylvania, an available fund of not exceeding ten per
cent of the whole amount of deposits with such corporation, or loan
the same on pledge of the securities named in the first section cited
above. Also (according to section 28 of the general law of 1876) they
can deposit temporarily in banks the excess of daily receipts over payments until such time as they may be judiciously Invested.

This city got into financial difficulties through making extensive
improvements. Interest was defaulted February 1, 1879, and a
compromise was finally effected with the bondholders, by which new 4
percent bonds dated July 1, 1882, were issued in exchange for the
old 7 per cent bonds turned in at 50 per cent of their face value.

HOOS, Mayor.

JORDAN. Comptroller.
Jersey City formerly suffered greatly from difficulty in collecting
taxes and assessments. Under the Martin Act, however, passed
some years ago by the Legislature, arrears of taxes are made liens on
the property, and if not paid within three years the property can be
sold to satisfy them. The city has also succeeded in adjusting the taxes
with the railroads, and the latter now pay into the treasury about
$225,000 annually. On Feb. 13, 1900, the citizens authorized the purchase of a water plant (now building) for the sum of $7,595,000. V.
70, p. 344. No bonds have yet been issued for this purpose. Jersey
City is in Hudson County.

declared bankrupt in 1882, and a compromise of the debt exclusive of the water debt ($185,000) was forthwith agreed to with most of the leading oreditors at 35 cents on the
dollar, the debt, exclusive of water debt, then amounting to about
$1,200,000. This settlement was completed in 1894, and interest is
now paid promptly on the new bonds. The water bonds were renewed
In 1891 at 4 per cent, an agreement having been made in 1890 by which
all accrued interest at 7 per cent was adjusted at the 35 per cent rate.
Interest on the water bonds is also promptly paid.

and are as follows.

Section 1. To provide for the payment of the present State debt, and
any additional debt contracted as aforesaid, the General Assembly

1

the said sinking fund shall consist of the proceeds Of the sales of the
public works, or an\ (rait thereof, and of the income or proceeds of the
sale of any stocks owned bj the Commonwealth, together with other
funds and resource* thai may be designated by law, and shall be
Incre as ed from ttane to time by assigning to it any part or the taxes or
other revenue of the State not required for the ordinary and current
expenses of government, and unless in case of war, invasion or Insurrection, no part of the said sinking fund shall be used or applied otherwise than in the extinguishment of the public debt.
The moneys of the State, over and above the necessary reserve, shall be used in the paymeni i>t the debt of the State, either
directly orthrough the sinking fund, and the moneys of the sinking
fund shall never be Invested in or loaned upon the security of anything
except the bonds of the. United States or oi this State.

such punishment shall be disqualification to hold office for a period of
not less than ti\ e years.
State loans in Pennsylvania, whether created for original indebtedness or authorized to fund existing indebtedness, are usually negotiated through the Governor and Commissioners of the sinking fund.
The last act of the Pennsylvania Legislature authorizing a public
loan was the act of June 8, 1881, when a thirty-year loan was effected
to fund existing indebtedness at a lower rate of interest.
The earliest date at which the last of the existing indebtedness of
Pennsylvania will mature is February 1, 1912, and under existing araugements the accumulations in the sinking fund will at that time
pay the total State indebtedness.
and Municipal Indebtedness.—Under the laws of
(2) County
Pennsylvania the power to create county loans is in the Board of
County Commissioners, which consists in each countv of three persons,
elected tri-ennially under the minority system of voting, by which
the minority party in each County usually has one member of the Board.
In cities and boroughs the power to create indebtedness is vested in
oouncils, municipal debts being created by ordinance.
The creation of county, city and other municipal indebtedness is
subject to the following constitutional limitations.
Article IX, Sec. 7. The General Assembly shall not authorize any
county, city, borough, township or incorporated district to become a
stockholder in any company, association or corporation, or to obtain or
appropriate money for, or to loan its credit to, any corporation, association, institution or individual.

Section 8. The debt of any county, city, borough, township, school
municipality or incorporated district, except as
herein provided, shall never exceed seven per centum upon the
assessed value of the taxable property therein, nor shall any suoh
municipality or district incur any new debt, or increase its indebtedness to an amount exceeding two per centum upon such assessed
valuation of property, without the assent of the electors thereof at a
public election in such manner as shall be provided by law but any
city the debt of which now exceeds seven per centum of such assessed
valuation may be authorized by law to increase the same three per
centum, in the aggregate at any one time, upon such valuation.
Section 9. The Commonwealth shall not assume the debt, or any
part thereof, of any city, county, borough or township, unless such
debt shall have been contracted to enable the State to repeal invasion,
suppress domestio insurrection, defend itself in time of war, or to
assist the State in the discharge of any portion of its present indebteddistrict, or other

;

ness.

8ection 10. Any county, township, school district or other municipality incurring any indebtedness shall, at or before the time of so
doing, provide for the collection of an annual tax sufficient to pay the
interest, and also the principal thereof within thirty years.
(3) Townships and School Districts.— In the various school districts
of the State the school directors have the power to create loans, sub10 above quoted, to provide for the
redemption of the same within thirty years.
In townships, the only authority, except that of the school directors
to borrow money, is in the road supervisors, who have no power to
create bonded Indebtedness, but simply to make a temporary loan for
necessary expenses, which must be provided for by an assessment of
sufficient township tax rate, known as road tax.

been reported as follows in the years named

SAVINGS BANKS INVESTMENTS-POWERS AND RESTRICTIONS.— Philadelphia is, we believe, entitled to the distinction
of starting the first savings institution in the United states. The
name this association bore was the " Philadelphia Savings Fund
Society," and it still exists, bearing the same name. Originally the
bank was not incorporated, but was a voluntary organization, suoh
societies in Great Britain being at that time of a like character. The

date of the organization was November 27, 1816, and the bank was
opened for business December 2, 1816. Mr. Hutchinson, who, now
holds the office, of President, states that the oldest ledger of the company
goes back to the time of opening, and shows a deposit on that day
(December 2, 1816) of five dollars. The company was not incorporated until February 25, 1819.
It is surprising that Pennsylvania, although engaged in such an early
venture in the department of savings institutions, should have made
so little progress in the same department since. Indeed, the second
organization does not bear date until 1847, and we think there had
only been 10 mutual savings institutions organized in the whole State
from 1816 down to the early part of 1890. We may assume, however,
that this slow development was in no measure due to a lack of desire
for savings banks on the part of the people of that common"
That such institutions were sought and needed is
wealth.
sufficiently evident from the fact that nine of the ten companies referred to above reported in 1890 that they held $63,957,841 of
deposits. In 1889 a general law, facilitating the incorporation of savings banks, was passed by the Legislature. Since then there has been
a small addition to the number of institutions, the total doing business
in the State In November, 1900. being 17, with deposits aggregating
$107,621,381 19.
The provisions of the special charters are all liberal as to investments. A law passed in 1885, and a supplement of the same passed
in 1889, authorizing the extension for twenty years of special charters, contains the following.
"Provided also, that no * * * Savings Institution or Savings

corporate iirhts and franchises, under the provisions of this act, shall
thereafter be allowed the privileges of a bank of discount, nor be
allowed to loan any money received on deposit, except first, mortgage
or lien upon real estate within this commonwealth, upon the bonds or
securities of the United States or of this State, or upon county, city,
borough, township or school bonus of any county, city, borough, townhip or school di-t net, within this commonwealth, or any other good

Authority to loan on any " good and valid security "appears to confer about as broad a discretion upon the managers as could be
expressed in a statute.

direction would seem to be assured under the liberality of the
provisions respecting Investments. The following is section 17, which
It

contains the investment limitations; we would especially direot
attention to subdivision four of this section:
EJECTION 17.— It shall be lawful for the trustees of any savings bank
to invest money deposited therein only as follows:

States is pledged to provide for the payment of the interest and the
principal.

(3) In the stocks or bonds of any State in the Union that has not
within ten years previous to making such investments, by such corporation, defaulted in the payment of any part of either principal or interest of any debt authorized by any Legislature of such State to be
contracted.
(4) In the stocks or bonds of any oity, county, town or village of
any State of the United States, issued pursuant to the authority or any
law of the State, or in any interest-bearing obligations issued by the
city or county in which such bank shall be situated.

be noted that according to the foregoing (sub-division
Pennsylvania savings banks are allowed to invest their
deposits in the bonds and stocks of any city, county town or village in
any of the United States. Furthermore, by the fifth subdivision bonds
and mortgages are left to the discretion of the trustees in all purchases,
except that they must be first mortgages on Improved real estate in
Pennsylvania. The next section (18) relates to the temporary deposit
of funds in banks and trust companies. It makes it lawful to deposit

Philadelphia, co-extensive with the county of the same name, is the
third city of the United States, has an area of over 130 square miles,
and includes a number of places which have almost the character of
separate towns. The county is under city control and has no separate
uebt. In the following table the various issues of bonds under the
general heads, Taxed City Loan and Untaxed City Loan, are given in
the order of their dates of maturitv.

DEBT LIMITATION.— Neitherthe new Constitution (adopted June
4, 1897,) nor the old Constitution nor the State statutes contain any
general provisions authorizing bond issues or limiting the debt-making
power, except that the new Constitution—
(1) Forbids the State (Article 8, Sec. 3) to borrow money or oreate
debt, "but pursuant to an Act of the General Assembly passed with
the concurrence of three-fourths of all the members elected to each
Hcise, except to supply casual deficiencies, repel invasion, suppress
Insurrections, defend the State in war or pay existing debts."
12) Forbids any county, city, town or other municipality (Article 8,
Sec. 8) to "lend its credit or appropriate money to, or assume the deot
of, or become a shareholder or joint owner in, or with, any private
corporation or any person or company whatever."
(3) Forbids any corporation (Article 9, Sec. 1) to be created, etc.. by
special act, "but only by or under general law"; "but the foregoing
provisions shall not apply to municipal corporations, banks," etc.
The above indicates that the authority as regards municipalities [except as already specified in number (2)] rests with the General
Assembly, and the General Assembly always passes special acts to
provide for special occasions and needs.

DEBT LIMITATION.—There

nothing in the Constitution of
Maryland limiting the power of the Legislature to authorize bondissues
is

either by the State or by its municipalities. No general limit for cities
and towns has been fixed by the Legislature, nor is there any general
authorization to be found in the statutes under which cities and towne
oan issue bonds. This power is lodged in the Legislature, and is delegated to the municipalities from time to time for specific purposes as
the occasion may arise. It is necessary, therefore, for the investor to
study the law in each case on this as well as on other points affecting
the loan with respect to which he may need information.

SAVINGS BANKS INVESTMENTS.-There are in
eral banking laws under which savings banks maybe

this State gen-

organized, and
yet we notice that even In 1890 a special charter was granted incorporating the Germania Savings Bank of Baltimore. However, in both the
general and special laws there appears to be a pretty general authority
granted for investing the deposits. The general law states that
Any savings institution incorporated under this article shall be
capable of receiving from any person or persons, or bodies corporate or
politic, any deposit of money which shall be invested or loaned out on
1
lood security in the discretion of the directors; provided that no part of
tl
he funds of said corporation shall be loaned to any officer or director of
such corporation.
In the special law passed in 1890, which we have referred to above,
the power to loan the deposits is made a little more definite. The section referring to that subject states that the " corporation shall have
" power to borrow money, receive money on deposit, loan money
taking such security therefor, either real or personal, as the Board of
Directors may deem sufficient; provided that no part of the funds of
" said corporation shall be loaned to an officer or director thereof."
We cannot discover any marked difference in the two provisions
cited, except that the enactment in the case of the new Baltimore bank
states distinctly that the security can be either real or personal. But as
much as that would, we think, be assumed as authorized under the general provision, since no limit is made and loaning on bond and mortgage
Is always a legitimate part of the business of savings banks.

Section 2. [Additional and for what purpose.] In addition to the

SECOND, As to

Cities,

die, so far as

the Constitution

affects the power of the Legislature to authorize these municipalities to create debt, the limitations are found in section 6 of article

(1)

article
forbids the General
8
money or loan
<Vc,
to become stockholders in or to raise
credit to aid corporations. <fcc. (2) Sections 1 and 2 of article 13 forbid
the passing pf special acts and require general acts for conferring corporate powers. (3) Section 6 of article 13 provides that the General

Assembly make provision for the organization of cities, &io., by general
laws and restrict their debt-making power. These sections are as follows:
Article 8, Section 6. [Counties, cities, towns or townships not author
ized to become stockholders. &c] The General Assembly shall never
authorise any county, city, town or township, by vote of its citizens or
otherwise, to become a stockholderiu any joint stock company, corporation or association whatever; or to raise money for, or loan its credit
to, or in aid of, any such company, corporation or association.
Akticle 13, Section 1. [Corporate powers]. The General Assembly
shall pass no special act conferring corporate powers.
.Section 2. [Corporations how formed]. Corporations may be formed
Under general laws but all such laws may from time to time be altered
;

or repealed.
tion 6, [Organization of cities, die] The General Assembly shall
provide tor the organization of cities and Incorporated villages by general laws and restrict their power of taxation, assessment, borrowing
money, contracting debts and loaning their credit, so as to prevent the
abuse of such power.
One at first sight would infer from section 6 article 8 above cited that
cities could not subscribe to the stock of or loan money to railroads, as
railroads are corporations and joint-stock companies. That, however,
is not a correct conclusion, as was decided In the case of Walkers*. The
City of Cincinnati, a case whioh arose under an act of the General
Assembly of Ohio entitled " An Act relating to cities of the first class,"
authorizing any such city to construct a line of railroad therefrom to
any other terminus In that State or in any other State. In
pursuance of the authority that act purports to give, Cincinnati
undertook to build the Cincinnati Southern Railroad. To test the legality Of that proceeding this action was brought. The Court's opinion is
very full and explicit, the conclusion being that from " the language
'ill the section It is quite evident that it was nut intended to prohibit
I'the construction of railroads nor indeed to prohibit any species of

generalization with regard
It is impossible to make any satisfactory
to the bonding power the Legislature has granted these municipalities.
There are a few sections of the Revised Statutes authorizing bond
Issues which have a universal application, such as the provision
(ranting power to issue bonds in anticipation of special assessments,
but most of the laws for that purpose cover only one class of cities, and
mauv ot theiu are so worded as to apply ouly to one city, and granting
an issue of bonds tor a specific purpose. No general laws limiting the
powers or municipalities to incur indebtedness have been passed, although section 6, article 13. appears to require it. And yet is it not a
question whether that section calls for any legislation of a general
nature except a general law "for the organization of cities, &c."

Cincinnati is situated in
County.
In 1895 the villages of Avondale, Clifton, Linwood, Riversid* and
Westwood were annexed to Cincinnati and their indebtedness was
assumed by that city. The Legislature of 1900 parsed a bill providing
for th>* annexation of a number of surrounding villages, subject to a
vote of the places affected. The annexation project proceeded so far
that the Board of Legislation had passed an ordinanoe providing for
an election in the territory affected, but later this ordinanoe was repealed (V. 71, p IO6O1 and the matter has sinoe beenjin abeyance
The city Sinking Fund Trustees entered into an agreement with
a New York firm In 1898 looking to the refunding of the Cincinnati Southern Railway bonds.
This agreement was set aside
by Judge Hpiegel on Aug. 18, 1898, and upon appeal the State Supreme
Court affirmed that riding. V. 67, p. 1 89 and 442; V. 68. p. 1143. The
U. S. Dintrict Court also deolared the contract void .V. 71, p. 928) and
this decision has been sustained by the U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
The Board of Trustees of the Cin. So. Ry. has also twice advertised
for proposals to refund these bonds, first on Dec. 20, 1898 (V. 67, p.
1122), when all bids were rejected. They again called for proposals July
19, 1899 (V. 68, p. 1236), but only a small portion had been offered for
extension when litigation again blocked further refunding operations.
This suit was dismissed on Sept. 7, 1-99. by Judge Davis, of the Common Pleas Court, and the decision was approved by the Suprema
court on appeal June 19, 1> 00. By agreement made in March, 1900,
between the two boards the Board of Trustees had until July, 1H01,
to extend time of payment of these bonds, and If refunding was not
accomplished by that time the sinking Fund Trustees were to undertake the operatiou.— V. 70, p. 495. The Board of Trustees, however,
has notified the Sinking Fund Commissioners that they »ill make no
further effort to extend these bonds, and the securities will therefore be
taken care of by the Sinking Fund Trustees, who will issue consolidated sinking fund bonds to provide the means for their redemption.
