My Dear Hammond: Have before me your favor asking for light on the subject of Gardner Land Bank Bill and will try to respond. You ask if the bill as passed by the last legislature is constitutional, and if not exactly in harmony, wherein is the difficulty? At the time that the bill was before the legislature, some of the leai necl members of the legal profession called attention to Art. IV. Sec. 46''of the State Constitution prohibiting the grant of public money and suggested that said constitutional provision prohibited the granting of one million dollars to the State Land Bank. It was answered at the time t h a t the one million dollars would continue to be in the possession and control of the Slate and would not j have been granted away "within the meaning of the Constitution The State Land Bank being a part of the State Government it was thought it would simply be the depository of the money for use of the farmers of the State and would always be subject to the control of the State. For that reason it was thought that the Constitution did not apply and therefore the bill was passed and signed by the Governor. But some of the lawyers still looked wise and expressed doubts. Attention was also called to Art X. Sec. 7 prohibiting exemption from taxation. The learned lawyers suggested that the proposed exemption of bonds in the Land Bank Bill was contrary to said provision. It was answered that the farmer paid taxes on the land and that furthermore exemptions of the same nature were already allowed by law. But the constitutional lawyers still looked dubious. Attention was also called by.the followers of Blaekstone to Art. XII Sec. 26 of the Constitution coverrng the creation of banks. It was t h o u g h t that the Land Bank Bill might infringe upon same. But it "was contended that said provision applied only to banks of issue and could not affect land bank of this character, which was not one of issue. To satisfy everybody and so as to clear all question, a constitutional amendment ha_s been submitted by initiative petition signed by more than 45,000 qualified voters. I trust that the foregoing definite statement will explain the legal difficulty. You ask, "Will the Gardner Land Bank Bill if carried at the general election be put in effect in case the State administration should change to Republican?" To such a question I can only answer that the Republican candidate for Governor has declared repeatedly that there is no need for the land bank act and if h« feels that way about it he would undoubtedly find many difficulties in the way of establishing the State Land Bank and it might not be good for the people of the State to put such an important trust in his hands. It is the experience of mankind that he beat fulfills a trust who is heart and soul for its accomplishment. , You write, "Please define in a brief way, how loans are to be repaid, I mean what per cent each year will be required to (repay the loan and the interest on a 25 year basis?" The principle and effect of amortization is well worth considering By amortization we mean the absorption of the principal debt white paying the interest-and all other charges during the term of the, loan. It is the experience of every farmer, or merchant, for that matter, that after paying interest for many years, the principal debt still stares him in the face. In tbe meantime the note has been renewed, more than one bonus paid, title investigations and numerous other little expenses have bee"n incurred, the total of which may amount to as much or more than the principal debt and at the end of a number of years, the original loan is still unpaid. Under the amortization plan of the State Land Bank this harrowing state of affairs is overcome and avoided. The trials and tribulations of renewal at the bank or from some private individual are done away with. The borrower makes up his mind in advance as to the necessary time which he wants for paying off the loan and arranges his payments accordingly. Under the provisions of the Land Bank Act he can borrow for five years or twenty-five years or any intermediate period Under the plan which is advocated a total payment of 6?4 per cent of a 25 year loan is paid annually by the borrow»r. This flj/l per cent covers interest of 4% per cent, all expenses of the loan and a part of the principal, so that at the time of final payment of the last 6J/4 per cent of the loan, the total debt is compl«tely paid off. To 'illustrate: Smith seeks to borrow $100.00 and wants 25 years in which to pay it off, principal, interest and all charges of every character. He makes this statement to the manager of the State Land Bank and the manager immediately figures up all the mathematical problems connected with it and same will show that the borrower must pay $6.50 annually, that is, 6)4 per cent of the original amount borrowed, and that such payment will wipe out the total debt at the end of the loan period. Of course, the same principle will apply for $1000 or $10,000 as borrowed. It is a very easy and simple plan and meets the unavoidable necessities of the farmer. The merchant in the transaction of his daily business turns over his capital many times and often borrows from Peter to pay Paul. If he has borrowed $100 or $1000 from the bank on six months time he can always meet it from the resources of his business. But the farmer relies upon his crop returns and the crops may fail once, twice, three times and even oftener. There may be a succession of bad seasons, of "excessive rains, of droughts, of overflows, of boll weevils and of many other things that happen to the farmer. Al! of which of course will make it impossible for him to meet his note and he has not the resources of the merchant to fall back upon. The principle of amortization, that is, paying the principal loan along with the interest and other charges, has been developed to the highest degree in European countries, especially in Germany, Belgium and Ireland. It was found in those countries that the system of small payments for a long term met the conditions and requirements of the farmers and the system was put into effect many years ago. Our system of 3 to 5 year loans is a burden instead of a relief to the farmer. It simply brings him into great difficulty and offers him tip as a lamb to be sheared by the money shepherds, who are always looking for renewals at an extravagant rate of interest and at oppressive bonuses. It might be mentioned here that loans to farmers in Germany and Sweden generally run 56^i years, in Switzerland, 57 years, in Denmark, 60 years and they run as high and as long as 68^ years in Ireland and 75 years in France. . . , The plan and principle of amortization cultivates thrift in the mind of the farmer and gives him the opportunity to work out his own salvation without excessive burdens and along lines of his own choice and suited to his' situation. . I trust that foregoing statement will somewhat clear the brush. But for campaign purposes our adversary -will continue to conjure up other eviU doubts and fears until the final victory. * 1 am with highest regards, Sincerely yours, -- FREDERICK D.
