|

he written consent of such person, firm or partnership of the same or

similar name, such name of such proposed corporation not being the same or similar to the name of any banking corporation then operating under the laws of this State or of the United States, and all associations formed under this Act shall have their capital stock divided into shares of one hundred dollars ($100) each. § 3. As soon as may be after receipt of authorization, books of subscription to the capital stock may be opened, and when the capital stock shall have been fully subscribed for a meeting of the subscribers to the stock of such association shall be called (each subscriber having had at least three days' notice) for determination of the number and election of directors to serve as managers for one year, and until their successors are elected. And no director shall be elected unless he shall have received votes representing at least a majority of the shares of the association; and the voting may be done by person, or by proxy, and at such election the subscribers or stockholders shall have the right to vote for the number of shares owned or subscribed by him for as many perSEs as there are directors to be elected, or to accumulate such shares and give one candidate as many votes as the number of directors multiplied by the number of his shares of stock shall equal, or to distribute

them on the same principle among as many candidates as he shall deem

proper. § 4. The directors so elected may proceed to organize by the election of one of their number as president, and may appoint the necessary to cers and employees and fix their salaries to carry on the business of he bank or association and make by-laws (not inconsistent with this Act) for the government of the bank or association; and each director shall take and subscribe to an oath such as the Auditor shall prescribe of fealty to the bank or association of which he is director and that he Will, so far as the duty involves on him, diligently and honestly adminsier the affairs of such bank or association and will not knowingly vioale or willingly permit to be violated any of the provisions of this Act;

When the directors have organized, as in section 4 of this Act, and the capital stock of such association shall have been all fully paid in and record of the same laid before the Auditor, he shall by himself or some competent person of his appointment, make a thorough examination into the affairs of such association, and if satisfied the authorized capital has been paid in, and that the association has the full amount dedicated to the business, including proposed surplus, if any, and when they pay into the Auditor's office the reasonable expenses of such examination, he shall give them a written or printed certificate under seal authorizing them to commence the business designated in section 1 of this Act. And said certificate and the permit issued in accordance herewith, duly certified by said Auditor, shall be filed and recorded in the office for the recording of deeds in the county where such bank is organized and the original or a certified copy thereof shall be evidence in all courts of the existence and authority of said corporation to do business.
