ANCIENT STATUTE UNCOV
ERED BY COMMISSION'S
Asks Repeal of Law Enacted ir
1S74—Act Hinders Organi-
zation of Private
Dallas, Texas.—The Texas Wel-
fare Commission in its investigation
of legislation in relation to the or-
ganization of private corporations
developed some very ancient statutes
which have been covered by the de-
bris of a half century of custom. One
of these statutes which has been
water-logged by custom and has es-
caped the notice of many corpora-
tions that depend largely upon bond
issues for financing their projects
was brought to the attention of the
Commission by R. C. Duff, chair-
man. The statute in question wa«
adopted in 1874 and prohibits pri-
vate corporations from incurring an
indebtedness greater than the amount
of their capital stock.
Many private corporations ignor-
ant of or indifferent to this law
have frequently violated it and by
common custom have long ignored
it, but corporations that place their
securities upon the market where
they are examined by skillful law-
yers find their bonds rejected on ac-
count- of this statute. The provision
was incorporated in our law upon the
erroneous theory commonly accepted
at that time that a corporation
should not incur a debt greater than
the amount of the capital stock. The
Commission finds the statute a men-
ace to creditors in good faith and
asks that if be repealed.
The watering of stock of private
corporations also came in for se-
vere censure at the hands of the
Commission and they made a plea
for higher standards of business
morality in legislation for the pro-
motion'and organization of private
corporations. The report of the
Commission.of this subject in part,
is as follows:
"When the disposition of the state
concerning railroad securities is re-
membered, it is remarkable that pub-
lice sentiment has not heretofore
driven our legislatures to throw more
safeguards around the organization
of private corporations, whose stock-
is intended to be sold to the people
of Texas. Some rational legislation
that will insure some reasonable re-
levancy between the value of the
property owned or to be owned by
the corporation and the securities to
be issued by the same should be
