EFFECTS OF BANK GUARANTKL
The recent Oklahoma bank failurb,
of course, is n^ t conclusive proof o 1
anything in the matter of the bank
guarantee law. A bank in Kansas
City failed when there was no pun;
anty law, and was r. opened and al'
depositors were paid without the ai-1
of any guarantee law. It Is seldom
that the workings of a disputed stat
uto are so positive and summary 13
to be demonstrated either one way
or the other by a single Instance. In
the Oklahoma case It wiw boasteI
that there was no run made on the
bank, and credit was given to th '
guarantee law. There is seldom i
run on any bank where there Is posl
tively no use in running. The run
comes before the failure. The Okla-
homa depositors knew they woul 1
get whatever they would ret Just as
eurely by waiting as by running. Ev
erybody knows, too, that the Okla-
homa law, bad aa It is, is a thousand
per cent better than the Kansas law.
which In almost all respects Is s
marvel of stupidity.
The first question in the Oklahonn
case is this: Did the existence of the
guarantee law encourage the man
ogers of the bank which broke to be
reckless? Probably It did, as that Is
the natural effect of such a law. Ths
next question Is: Did the breaking
of that bank cost careful banks som--
money, and if so, Is It fair to make
such careful banks to pay for the
carelessness or villainy of other
banks without compensating them for
the risk and the cost? Certainly
there is no compensation in this case
Insurance without pay is an outrage
or a fraud or both. In the Kansas
case It is both.—Kansas City Journal

loom up as a Republican state, though
the latter will remain longer in the
vision than the former and with a
great deal more brilliancy.
Haskell's announcement that ho
will retire at the expiration of his
present tonn was likely reached after
holding his ear to tho receiver of a
wireless phone; at any rate, it was
an admirable conclusion.
When Attorney Oencral West goes
Into the newspaper business, as he

equal chance of self-defense as that

will he use It as freely?
The Oklahoma faiTOi-rs are said to
be well supplied with ready cash
with which to discount their pur-
chases; but It's more than likely they
will not be so flush after they pay
their taxes for tho last year.

Several prominent politicians have

It begins to look as If a great many
men were elected to office In Okla-
homa that should have been sent to
the penitentiary before their election,
Instead of after.
With the bank guaranty law
knocked out of business In Nebraska
by the Federal Courts, the Oklahoms
monstrosity begins to look as if It
needed medical attention.
The name of "zoological garden of
cranks"—the term applied to Oklaho-
ma's constitutional convention and
first legislature—might not sound so
harsh if It were not true.
If Commander Peary and Dr. Cook
do not cease quarreling over who
discovered the North Pole first, the
public will come to the conclusion
there never was a pole.
The Dallas (Tex.) 8tate Fair enter-
tained the congress of mothers this
week, the only mothers being absen'
were the mothers of Democracy—Bai-
ley and Bryan.
It Is certainly evident that a ship-
ment of goods from another state in-
to Oklahoma does not become the
property of the consignee until he
has taken it Into his possession, and
■till such shipments are being con-
fiscated by state officials with no real
authority of law to sustain the seiz-
ures. Will not the state beoome
liable under the law for whatever
damages mey bo sustained by the
consignee In all these cases and
mulcted to the tune of several thou
sand dollars? If a private citizen
has no right to seize goods consigned
to another, what right has the state
under the same law? If the law pro-
tects the state In the performance o'
an Illegal or unlawful act, can not a
private citizen contend for the same
protection under the law which pro-
tects the state?
Anyhow, the territorial treasurer

| Will any one deny that if another
f.illure equivalent to that of the re-
' cent collapse of the Columbia Bank
& Trust Co. should occur at this
time, requiring the payment of an-
other assessment of the same propor-
tions demanded by the state officers
| to settle the debts of the Columbia,
j that the state banks would either
uniformly resist the collection of the
tax or surrender their state charters?
No one would deny them the right to
surrender their sta'a charters and
continue under federal charters.
Could the tax be successfully re-
sisted? If It could, and If It should
be successfully resisted, where would
the depositors' guaranty come In;
where would the depositor get his
money? The United States Circuit
Court, sitting in the state of Nebras-
ka, has recently held that the Ne-
braska bank guaranty law Is In con-
flict with the provisions of the fed-
eral constitution and Is therefore In-
valid. The fourteenth amendment of
the federal constitution provides
among other things that "No state
shall deprive any person of life, lib-
erty or property without due process
of law," and the Federal Court In
Nebraska held that to arbitrarily re-
quire a bank to pay a tax to a guar-
anty fund as a condition of Its dolus:
business in the state was in conflict
with the fourteenth amendment; that
it deprives the citizen of his liberty
and property without due process of
law. If the guaranty principle In
state bank legislation is invalid, when
tested by a federal court In Nebras
ka, it is also invalid under the same
test in Oklahoma, and It would seem
clear that all that is lacking to hold
the Oklahoma guaranty law Invalid
is a decision of the Federal Court con-
sidering and construing It.
The Farmers' Sta'e Bank, located
at Oklahoma City, was organized a
number of years a^o and has been
doing business up to this time as a
state bank; It has been officered and
managed and directed by shrewd,
able and sagaclou3 bankers. The per-
sonnel of Its directorate is made up
of men of broad financial experience,
and one of the loading lawyers of the
state, the president of the SUte Bar
Association, is one of its directors.
That such a bank, with the largest
volume of business, the largest lino
of di'j) its of any state bank In Ok-
lahoma should surrender Its charter
to operate as a state bank and In-
corporate under the federal law as a
national bank at this particular time
Is worthy of more than casual notice.
Up to the time of the failure of tha
Columbia Bank & Trust Co., which
Is the first test the Oklahoma ban';
guaranty law has been subjected to,
quite a large number of banks had
done the very opposite thing to what
the Fanners' State Bank Is now do-
ing—that is, they had surrendered na-
tional charters and taken state char-
ters. Now we have a very conspicu-
ous instance which would indicate
that the tide of change has set in In
the other direction.
Candidly now, what does this
mean? Why this chanve?
The meaning Is clear as a turnpike
road. The following statement ap-
pears In the Dally Oklahoinan:
"Since the state guaranty law be-
came operative, more than a year
ago, this bank has paid Into the
state bank guaranty fund $10,000. Of
this amount $4,000 was paid when the
recent levy of three-fourths of 1 per
cent was made upon the state banks
to take care of the Columbia Bank
& Trust Co. failure. * • •
Ten thousand dollars in two years
to pay some other bank's debts! Four
thousand dollars to assist in paying
for the shortcomings, mismanage-
ment and misfortunes of one single
bank failure, for whi^h they were ia
nowise responsible! What other ra-
tional conclusion could men of their
caliber reach? They doubtless con-
cluded that they were not conduct-
ing a banking institution to pay some
GRAND HALF PRICE OFFER.
Contemporaries which are speculat
ing on how the Oklahoma people will
be affected by President Taft'3 r<
mark concerning their constltutioi
need not worry. The rational people
of the new state know as well as Mr
Taft that their constitution, framed
by Haskell and Bryan, is in no wise
misrepresented when it is called i
"zoological garden of cranks."—Kan
