Leeman’s Bill respecting Dealings in Bank Shares.

A clique or cliques of „speculators for the fall“ fastened upon certain Banks etc, in 1866, made to fail by the operation of these unscrupulous tricksters. Thus Agra and Masterman’s Bank. A telegram was sent out to India by the operator to a certain clique that it had failed. At that time not the smallest foundation for that rumour. Effect run upon the different branch banks in India (by depositors); London bank unable to meet them, chiefly owing to the great distance; result failure of the London bank. … dealings for time at Stock Exchange, i.e. speculators who have no shares allowed to make fictitious sales of shares they do not possess, for delivery at some remote date, upon the prospect of buying them at a lower price, in the interval. Before the said telegram was sent to India, a clique of speculators had sold the sales shares largely for future delivery, and this was one of the expedients resorted to in order to render those operations profitable. In order that these miscreants should pocket their illgotten gains, widows, orphans, and dependent persons have been ruined or brought to the verge of ruin. If, from any cause, as mit der Agra and Masterman’s Bank, there should be a sudden demand for all the money lodged by the depositors, while the money lent can only be recovered by instalments as they fall due, no bank could meet such pressure. In 1866 no less than 51,000 persons in England and Wales registered as the holders of shares in joint stock banks, including persons in every grade of life. Aber die number of depositors, 20, 30, perhaps 50 × greater. We do not want banknotes if we can keep banking accounts and make our payments by cheques.

Limited Liability. High Nominal Shares.

Small sum paid upon deposit. Few intended to be permanent investors. All thought that, if ever a period of adversity arrived, some one else would have to bear the brunt of it; besonders so long as premiums reigned. The experience of last crisis has shown that there is no market for shares of heavy nominal amount of which only a little is paid. The terror of coming calls has outweighed all intrinsic merit; £100 shares with £10 paid, were, and still are, unsaleable.|

Mit Bezug auf die Section called „The General Undertaking“: Of £6,710,000 capital issued, the enormous amount of £2,945,296 for interest, commission, and „loss on issue“; which means that, in paying away to contractors for work performed securities of the nominal value of £6,710,100, they were received by the contractors as only £3,763,804 in cash. There is one item of £1,500,000 of ordinary stock which is put down as issued at a loss of £1,113,663; that is, the 1 million and 1/2 of stock went for £386,337.

Plethora of money.

There is always a large amount of floating capital in the country which is never invested, so to speak, but only laid out from day to day, or, at all events, in the very shortest-dated securities. So long as trade is brisk, this money proves remunerative enough for the purpose for which it is intended … But although a good deal of our capital is not available for investment in permanent securities, there is still a very considerable amount kept out of employment by sheer distrust.

(David Barclay Chapman)

The fellow, redolent as he is of the history of 1853–58, macht ein enthusiastic revival of himself. Aber in fact, he secured upwards of £27,000 on 3. Aug. 1865 (out of the House)[.] The stigma on the „revered“ brows, that they had surreptitiously rescued all their connections and friends from bitter loss, and involved others in bitter loss, for the comfort of all their connections and friends.

(Zusammensetzung des Investigation Committee) (Solicitors) (Scapegoats)

Dieß Committee speaks only of contractors, nicht of the directors, and still less of the solicitors. Now, auf dem first meeting in St. James Hall, „a cut and dried“ committee proposed by Cornelius Surgey, and enforced. (He intimated that he had many proxies.) This Surgey himself is or was the broker to Messrs. Freshfield and Newman; another member of the committee is a near relative of Surgey’s own partner; another most active member was for years a partner of Newman’s brother-in-law, Newman being the principal manager of the business of Freshfield and Newman. Ferner: the new board is composed of the members of this committee, with the addition of Lord Harris as a figure-head. The board remains practically Surgey’s committee. Then this Surgey, who professed in his long speeches at St. Martin’s Hall to know nothing of the Co. and its past management, turns now out to be the very man upon whose advice the board raised loans on the new stock created in 1864 rather than sell it to the proprietors and the public, when it could have been disposed at [a] far better price than it would have fetched since, viz. about £40 instead of which it was eventually sold for £27. 10s., after the Co. had paid enormous amounts for interest and commissions on temporary loans. … Within the last few years an amount closely approximating to 1/4 Mill. St. has been paid to the solicitors of the Co. for their own charges, not including amounts paid to other parities. If this amount was not paid for the purpose of keeping the Co. right in legal matters, what was it paid for?
