France to Ex tend Credit to Nations Farmers German Method is Also Outlined By Associated Detroit Sept problem o agricultural development eclipsed the currency question at the closing ses sion of the American Bankers asso ciation With the exception of the election of officers the association de voted practically all its time to ad dresses on agricultural betterment and discussing plans suggesting as sistance to American farmers The advisability of forming in the United States a cooperative de mocracy of state mortgage loan banks united into a powerful central organ ism for strengthening banking was recommended for consideration of the American Bankers association here today by Charles A Conant The sub ject of Mr Conants address was Land and Agricultural OUR SYSTEM FAULTY Mr Conaat began by referring to the pressure of population upon food supply and the necessity of increas ing the area of cultivated land by im proved methods of extending credit to the farmer He pointed out that bit ter experience had proved projects for ssuing money upon land to be unsound but that Europe had solved the prob em of the ready transfer ability of mortgage loans and low rates of in terest to the borrower by taking a leaf from the experience of the limited lia bilitycompany in the issue of bonds sttares DESCRIBES EUROPEAN METHOD In he said the man who ins money to lend upon mortgage is no longer obliged to make personal examinaton of the property nor to risk his capital upon a single investment n a nontransferable form He has only to buy a negotiable pon or registered according to his he can sell as read ly as the bond of the government and with even less risk of fluctuation in ts price He has behind the bond not merely the land the source of all wealth but he has the pledge of a stock company that they have examin ed the properties upon which loans have been made that all such proper ties are held in the aggregate as as sets against the outstanding bonds and that the company has in addition an adequate capital to cover any unex pected shrinkage in the value of the property behind its bonds The bonds issued by the Credit Foncler of France under this system are made attractive to the borrower by the system of mortization by which they are paid off and by the long terms over which the amortization ex tends In the loans made by the Cred it Foncier of France more than three fiuarrers are for periods of fifty yean or more so that the amortization charge involves only a small addition to the annual interest COMPARATIVE RATES The rate of interest charged upon loans during the last few years by ttu Credit Foncier of France has per cent For a loan repayabl in thrty years the semiannual pa ment required has been pe or just under 3 per cent mak ing the two payments for the yea ermal to or just under G pe cent Where tho loan is for fort years the sum of the two annual pa uients falls to per and fo fifty years to per cent It ma not be possible to float bonds in thi country at a rate so low us to permi loans upon mortgage nt per com but even if 5 or 5 12 per cent i charged tho additions for the amortiz ation of the principal wil not bo mater tally greater than in the case of th loans made by the Credit Foncier o France While it might not be possible t loans as low in America as the are made in France it ought to he pos sible to make them at a point nine lower than the farmer pays under th existing system of disposing of mor gages to Individual The era go mto of interest shown by th PARADE OF ELKS Frank Quest a Bystander Captures Runaway
