      Sec. 2.  A mortgage of personal property or crops may be given to secure the repayment of sums that may be optionally or obligatorily advanced, expenditures that may be made, or indebtednesses or obligations that may be incurred subsequent to the execution of such mortgage. If the maximum amount, the repayment of which is intended to be secured by such mortgage, is expressed therein, such mortgage shall be and constitute a lien or encumbrance of rank, effect, status and standing equal to that established thereby initially and as it may thereafter obtain, as security for the repayment of any sums, expenditures, indebtednesses, and obligations, owing or due or becoming owing or due thereunder, up to and including such expressed maximum amount which shall be considered only as a limit of the debts, sums, expenditures, indebtednesses, and obligations that may be secured thereby at any one time, and not to include such as may have existed and been repaid or discharged thereunder.

In case there are insufficient funds in the bond trust fund to cover the loss, then the state controller shall draw a warrant for the full amount in that fund for the purpose of making restitution in part, and he shall report the condition of the fund to the governor, who shall take the necessary steps to have it included in the budget, and report to the next succeeding legislature.

[Approved March 28, 1935]

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1935 Statutes of Nevada, Page 287 (CHAPTER 135, SB 140)ê

 

throughout the state, making it impossible for many people in the state to support themselves and their families; that these conditions create a public emergency and constitute a menace to the health, safety, morals and welfare of the people of the state; that it is essential that public works projects, financed in whole or in part by the United States of America or by the state, be commenced as soon as possible in order to reduce and relive this unemployment and prevent irreparable injury to the people of the state; that to this end it is necessary to provide a method for the expeditious acquisition of any lands necessary for such public works projects; that such public works projects are hereby declared to be in furtherance of the public welfare and to be public uses and purposes for which money may be spent and private property acquired; and the necessity in the public interest for the provisions hereinafter enacted is hereby declared as a matter of legislative determination.

      (b) Without limitation upon the generality of the foregoing paragraph hereof, it is hereby declared that insanitary or unsafe dwelling accommodations exists in various areas of the state and that consequently many persons of low income are forced to reside therein; that these conditions cause an increase in and spread of disease and crime, constitute a menace to the health, safety, morals and welfare of the citizens of the state, impair economic values, and are not being, and cannot within a reasonable time be, corrected by the investment of private capital available for profit-making enterprises; that the clearance, replanning and reconstruction of the areas in which insanitary or unsafe housing conditions exist and the provision of safe and sanitary dwelling accommodations for persons of low income are public uses and purposes for which private property may be acquired.

      Sec. 3.  Definitions.  The following terms whenever used or referred to in this act shall have the following respective meanings, unless a different meaning clearly appears from the context:

      (a) “Public works project” shall mean any work or undertaking which is financed in whole or in part by a federal agency, as herein defined, or by a state public body, as herein defined.

      (b) “Federal agency” shall mean the United States of America, the federal emergency administration of public works, or any other agency or instrumentality, corporate or otherwise, of the United States of America.

      Sec. 16.  Declaration of Taking.  At any time at or after the filing of the petition referred to in section 5 hereof, and before the entry of final judgment, the petitioner may file with the clerk of the court a declaration of taking, signed by the duly authorized officer or agent of the petitioner, declaring that all or any part of the property described in said petition is to be taken for the use of the petitioner.

      Said declaration of taking shall be sufficient if it sets forth: (1) A description of the property, sufficient for the identification thereof, to which there may be attached a plat or map thereof; (2) a statement of the estate or interest in said property being taken; and (3) a statement of the sum of money estimated by the petitioner to be just compensation for the property taken.

cause shown) on which the parties in possession shall be required to surrender possession to the petitioner. In the event that the petitioner is an authorized corporation, the court, prior to directing surrender of possession to the petitioner, shall require such security to be given, in addition to the amount deposited in court, as will reasonably assure the payment of any amount ultimately determined as the compensation to be paid.

      The ultimate amount of compensation shall be fixed in the manner heretofore specified. If the amount so fixed shall exceed the amount so deposited in court by the petitioner, the court shall enter judgment against the petitioner in the amount of such deficiency, together with interest at the rate of six per centum per annum on such deficiency from the date of the vesting of title to the date of the entry of the final judgment (subject, however, to abatement for use, income, rents or profits derived from such property by the owner thereof subsequent to the vesting of title in the petitioner), and the court shall order the petitioner to deposit the amount of such deficiency in court.

      Sec. 17.  Right to Dismiss.  At any time prior to the vesting of title to the property in the petitioner, the petitioner may withdraw or dismiss its petition with respect to any or all of the property therein described.

      Sec. 18.  Divesting Title of Owner.  Upon vesting of title to any property in the petitioner, all the right, title and interest of all persons having any interest therein or lien thereupon shall be divested immediately, and such persons thereafter shall be entitled only to receive compensation for such property.

      Sec. 19.  Payment of Award into Court and Disbursement Thereof.  The payment into court by the petitioner of the amount of any award or the deposit in court of the amount estimated by the petitioner to be the just compensation for the property taken or condemned, shall be deemed to be a payment or deposit of money for the use of the persons entitled thereto.

      Such payment or deposit shall constitute a payment to the persons entitled thereto to the extent of the moneys so paid or deposited into court.

      Any such payment shall be as valid and effectual in all respects as if it were made by the petitioner directly to the person entitled thereto or, in the case of a person under legal disability, to his guardian, whether or not (a) such person or his whereabouts is known or unknown, (b) such person is under a legal disability, or (c) there are adverse or conflicting claims to such awards.

      The money paid into court shall be secured in such manner as may be directed by the court, and shall be paid out by the special master to the persons found to be entitled thereto by the final judgment of the court.

CHAPTER 136, SB 151

[Senate Bill No. 151–Senators Robbins, Getchell, Tobin, Sadler, and Carpenter]

 

Chap. 136–An Act to appropriate the sum of thirteen thousand ($13,000) dollars to be used in payment of the balance of court costs and expenses, as heretofore allowed by court, but remaining unpaid in the Humboldt river water adjudication, and providing for the refund thereof out of taxes to be levied against the property of the water users along the Humboldt river stream system.

 

[Approved March 28, 1935]

 

      Whereas, The district court of the Sixth judicial district of the State of Nevada, in and for the county of Humboldt, the Honorable H. W. Edwards presiding, heretofore duly allowed the sum of $23,939.41 to be taxed as court costs and expenses in the Humboldt river water adjudication; and

      Whereas, The state engineer’s “Adjudication Emergency Fund,” created by chapter 136 of the 1929 Statutes of Nevada, out of which these costs and expenses would ordinarily be paid, is now exhausted due to the fact that all of the moneys in said fund have been used as part payment of said costs and expenses; and

      Whereas, There has been advanced from the state engineer’s revolving fund created by 1929 Statutes of Nevada, page 138, the sum of $5,227.98, as part payment of said court costs and expenses which has not, as yet, been repaid to said fund and which should be fully reimbursed; and

      Whereas, There is still due, owing and unpaid as such court costs and expenses so allowed in said Humboldt river water adjudication, a balance or remainder of approximately thirteen thousand ($13,000) dollars for services actually already rendered, and there is no money available for the immediate payment thereof, although the full amount of said costs and expenses so allowed by the court has been duly certified by the state engineer and will soon be levied against the lands of the water users along said stream system, as required by the water law of this state, but cannot be collected in due course for one year or more; and

Such reports shall be verified by the oath or affirmation of its president or vice president, and cashier, the person by whom the same was prepared, and by at least a majority of the directors. Each report shall exhibit in detail, and under the appropriate heads, the resources and liabilities, and a profit and loss account of such bank at the close of business on any past day specified by the superintendent of banks, and shall be transmitted to him within ten days after the receipt of a request or requisition therefor by him, and shall be published in condensed form, according to his requirements, within ten days after the same is made, in a newspaper published in the county in which such bank is established, for one insertion at the expense of the bank, and such proof of publication shall be furnished within five days after the date of publication, as may be required by the superintendent of banks. The superintendent of banks shall also have power to call for special reports, which need not be published, from any bank whenever, in his judgment, the same is necessary in order to gain a full and complete knowledge of its condition; provided, the prior date specified by the superintendent of banks for reports, other than special reports, shall be the day designated by the comptroller of the currency of the United States for reports of national banking associations. Each of the three annual reports as in this section required shall be kept posted in a conspicuous place in the banking room in which said bank carries on its business, and shall be made in such a manner and form as to show the exact financial condition of said bank, for the inspection of its depositors and customers.

      Sec. 9.  The above-entitled act shall be amended by the addition of a new section, to be known as section 23a, to read as follows:

      Section 23a.  The state board of finance is hereby authorized, upon a proper application showing good cause therefor, to authorize any bank organized under this act to restrict, for a limited period, the percentage of withdrawals from all of the accounts of such bank.

      Whenever, in the interest of public business, any such bank shall deem it necessary to curtail or restrict the withdrawals of its patrons for a limited period, said bank, through its proper officers, may make application, setting forth the reasons therefor, to the state board of finance requesting an order or authorization from said board to restrict, for a limited period, withdrawals by depositors of said bank to a specific percentage of their respective deposits.


…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

ê1935 Statutes of Nevada, Page 323 (CHAPTER 147, SB 110)ê

 

forth the reasons therefor, to the state board of finance requesting an order or authorization from said board to restrict, for a limited period, withdrawals by depositors of said bank to a specific percentage of their respective deposits.

      Upon receipt of such application by the state board of finance, and good cause appearing therefor, said board may issue to said applicant, after consulting the superintendent of banks, an authorization specifying therein the percentage of all deposits which said bank may pay to its depositors, and the period to which such restriction or limitation may extend; provided, that, for good cause shown, the said state board may shorten, cancel, extend or renew such authorization whenever such board may deem such action proper in the interest of public business.

      Any bank obtaining any order or authorization authorized by this section shall post and maintain, during the period of restriction, in a conspicuous place in or upon its banking premises, a certified copy of each such order or authorization.

      The board of finance is further empowered to authorize all such banks to thereafter receive new deposits which shall be segregated from the old deposits, and said new deposits shall not be subject to any restriction as to the withdrawal thereof, except as provided in the terms of any time certificate of deposit or savings passbook, and said new deposits shall be invested in such liquid assets as may be approved by the state board of finance in order that such banks may at all times have sufficient funds available to meet the demands on such new deposits in accordance herewith.

      Sec. 10.  Section 47 of the above-entitled act shall be amended to read as follows:

      Section 47.  No person, firm, company, corporation or association, except banks doing business under the laws of the United States, shall engage in the banking business in this state without first obtaining from the superintendent of banks, as herein provided, a license authorizing such person, firm, company, corporation or association to use the name and transact the business of a bank. The transacting of any banking business without such authority shall constitute a gross misdemeanor.

      A bank having a capitalization up to and including $100,000 shall pay a license fee of $200;

      A bank having a capitalization of more than $100,000 and up to and including $200,000 shall pay a license fee of $300;
