ready assessed, or the extraordinary demands made upon it 
for unemployment relief, and which is or may become unable 
to borrow through the ordinary banking channels or the is- 
suance and sale of bonds sufficient money to meet such gov- 
ernmental needs, or outstanding or maturing obligations to

ernor and council shall determine that an emergency exists in 
such town, city or county, and that such town, city or county is 
unable to borrow money through the usual banking channels, 
upon reasonable conditions as regards payment of interest or 
otherwise, or is prevented by the existing laws of the state 
relating to borrowing by towns, cities or counties and the is- 
suance of bonds, or is unable to place loans owing to its im- 
paired financial condition, the governor and council are hereby 
authorized to issue a certificate under the seal of the state 
declaring the existence of such emergency and authorizing 
such town, city or county to issue emergency notes or bonds, 
in such amounts payable at such times and with such rates 
of interest as the governor and council may determine, and

notes or bonds and their action in reference thereto shall be 
binding upon said town, city or county.

money realized from such emergency loans shall be deposited 
with the state treasurer or in such banks as the governor and 
council may determine, and shall be paid over to the disburs- 
ing officer of such town, city or county only on the order of the 
governor, in such amounts as he may determine. The gov- 
ernor is hereby authorized to appoint a fiscal agent to super- 
vise and direct the incurring of obligations against, and the 
expenditure of, said funds. If it becomes necessary, said 
funds, on order of the governor, may be paid over to such 
fiscal agent, to be by him disbursed for the benefit of such 
town, city or county. 

5. Orders Countersigned. If. in the opinion of the gover- 
nor and council it shall become necessary, they are hereby 
authorized, at any time before said loans are paid, to empower 
the fiscal agent appointed by the governor to countersign all 
warrants or orders for the payment of any money drawn upon 
any funds held by the treasurer of the political subdivision 
whose emergency loans authorized by this act shall remain 
unpaid, and after being notified by the governor and council 
of such action the treasurer of such political subdivision shall 
pay out no money unless upon warrant or order countersigned 
by such fiscal agent. 

6. Conditions Imposed. The governor and council, before 
such certificate is issued or the payment of such loans is 
guaranteed by the state, may impose such further restric- 
tions, conditions and stipulations as will protect the state's 
interest and insure an orderly, economical and efficient conduct 
of the fiscal affairs of the political subdivision for which said 
money is borrowed. 

7. Expenses. All expenses incident to the making of said 
loans or the compensation of any fiscal agent shall be paid 
from the proceeds of such loans on order of the governor.

carrying into effect the provisions of this act and for that pur- 
pose may issue bonds and notes in the name and on behalf of 
the state of New Hampshire at a rate of interest to be de- 
termined by the governor and council. The maturity dates 
of such bonds shall be determined by the governor and coun- 
cil, but in no case shall they be later than twenty years from 
the date of issue and all bonds shall be callable at any time 
after twelve years. Such bonds and notes shall contain an 
express guarantee which shall be deemed a contract on the 
part of the state, that toll will be collected, in accordance with 
the provisions of this act, until the date of maturity of said 
bonds and notes or until sufficient money shall have accumu- 
lated to pay said notes and bonds and the interest thereon at

nations as the governor and council shall determine, may be 
registerable as to both principal and interest, shall be counter- 
signed by the governor and shall be deemed a pledge of the 
faith and credit of the state. The secretary of state shall

amount received for the same, the date of the sale and the 
date of maturity. The treasurer may negotiate and sell such 
bonds and notes by direction of the governor and council in 
such manner as they may determine most advantageous to 
the state. The proceeds of the sale of such bonds and notes

rants drawn by the governor for the purposes of this act 
alone and the governor, with the advice and consent of the 
council, shall draw his warrants for the payment from the 
funds provided for bj^ this act of all sums expended or due 
for the purposes herein authorized. Interest from such bonds 
and notes shall not be subject to the taxes imposed by chapter

hereunder the treasurer, under the direction of the governor 
and council, shall for the purposes hereof borrow money from 
time to time on short term loans to be refunded by the issu- 
ance of the bonds hereunder. 

9. Toll. There shall be collected for the use of the bridges 
and approaches thereto provided for herein, including said 
Dover Point Toll Bridge, such charges or toll as the commis- 
sion shall deem reasonable from the various vehicles and 
pedestrians making use thereon. The toll collected shall be 
deposited with the state treasurer, who shall keep the same 
in a separate account designated as such and the operating 
expenses and upkeep of said bridges shall be paid from said 
account so long as toll is collected. From the balance remain- 
ing after the payment of the operating expenses and upkeep, 
the governor with the approval of the council shall pay the in- 
terest and principal on the bonds and notes issued hereunder. 
During the construction of the new bridges, the governor 
may, if necessary, draw his warrant upon the general highway 
fund to pay the interest due upon any bonds and notes that 
have been issued in accordance with the provisions of this 
act, such payment to be repaid to the highway department 
from the tolls collected. 

10. Operation and Maintenance. When the bridge over 
Little Bay is constructed, the commission shall discontinue 
the use of the existing Dover Point Toll Bridge as a means of 



80 Chapter 65 [1933 

public travel and demolish or dispose of the same in such 
manner that it will not be available for use for highway travel. 
The bridges constructed under the provisions of this act, in- 
cluding the approaches thereto, shall be operated and main- 
tained out of the toll receipts as provided in section 9 until 
toll collection shall cease, and thereafter the expenses of 
maintenance and operation shall be paid in accordance with 
the provisions of law then in effect. Toll collection shall cease 
upon the accumulation in the hands of the state treasurer of 
sufficient funds with which to pay all bonds and notes, to- 
gether with the interest thereon, issued hereunder. 

11. Repeal. Chapter 158 of the Laws of 1931 is hereby 
repealed. 

12. Takes Effect. This act shall take effect upon its

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in 
General Court convened: 

1. Oflficers, Directors and Trustees. Amend chapter 260 
of the Public Laws by inserting a new section following sec- 
tion 5, as follows : , 5-a. Removal by Commissioner. When- 
ever, in the opinion of the bank commissioner, any officer, 
trustee or director of a savings bank, state bank, guaranty 
savings bank or trust company shall have continued to violate 
any law relative to such savings bank, state bank, guaranty 
savings bank or trust company or shall have continued unsafe 
or unsound practices in conducting the business of said bank, 
after having been warned in writing by the bank commis- 
sioner to discontinue such violations of law or such unsafe or 
unsound practices, he may cause notice to be served upon such 
officer, trustee or director to appear before him to show cause 
why he should not be removed from office. A copy of such 
order shall be sent by registered mail to each trustee or 
director of the bank affected. If, after granting such officer, 
trustee or director a reasonable opportunity to be heard the 
bank commissioner finds that he has continued, to violate any 
law relating to such savings bank, state bank, guaranty sav- 
ings bank or trust company or has continued unsafe or un- 
sound practices in continuing the business of such institution 
after having been warned to discontinue such violations of 
law or such unsafe or unsound practices, the bank commis- 
sioner may, with the approval of two persons of good stand- 
ing in the banking business, to be named by the governor upon 
the request of the bank commissioner, order that such officer, 
director or trustee be removed from office. A copy of such 
order shall be served upon such officer, trustee or director and 
upon the bank of which he is an officer, trustee or director 



1933] Chapter 67 83 

whereupon such officer, trustee or director shall cease to be 
an officer, trustee or director of such bank: Provided that 
such order and the findings of fact upon which it is based 
shall not be made public or disclosed to any one except the 
officer, trustee or director involved and the trustees or 
directors of the bank affected, otherwise than in connection 
with proceedings for a violation of this section. No such 
officer, trustee or director removed from office as herein pro- 
vided shall, without the consent of the bank commissioner, 
participate in any manner in the management or operation of 
said bank. Any person so removed from office may, with the 
approval of the trustees or directors of the bank affected 
expressed by majority vote in which he shall not participate, 
appeal by petition to the supreme court within thirty days 
from date of order of removal. Upon hearing, after such 
notice as the court may order, the burden of proof shall be 
upon the petitioner to show that the order of removal is 
clearly unreasonable or unlawful, and all findings of the bank 
commissioner upon all questions of fact properly before him 
shall be deemed to be prima facie lawful and reasonable and 
the order shall not be set aside or vacated except for errors 
of law unless the court by a clear preponderance of the 
evidence before it finds that such order is unjust or unreason- 
able. Pending decision of the supreme court, the order of 
removal shall continue in effect. 

2. Deposit of Funds. Amend section 17 of said chapter 
261 by inserting after the figure 19 in the third line the fol- 
lowing; but such deposit shall not, at any time, exceed fifty 
per cent of the unimpaired capital, surplus and net undivided 
profits of such national bank or trust company except with 
the approval in writing of the bank commissioner; so that 

said section as amended shall read as follows: 17. . 

A savings bank may deposit its funds in a national bank or 
trust company whose capital is unimpaired and whose credit 
is good, subject to the limitations of chapter 262, section 19, 
but such deposit shall not, at any time, exceed fifty per cent 
of the unimpaired capital, surplus and net undivided profits 
of such national bank or trust company except with the ap- 
proval in writing of the bank commissioner; but until such 
deposit it shall keep all its coin, bills, notes, bonds, securities 
and evidences of debt separate and apart from the assets or 



84 Chapter 67 [1933 

l>roi)ci'ty of any otlier corporation or person. If the officers 
of a savings bank fail to comply with this provision they may 
be removed by the commissioner. 

3. Part Limitation Removed. Amend section 19 of said 
chapter 261 by striking out all of said section after the words 
"five per cent" in the sixth line so that said section as 
amended shall read as follows: 19. Dividends. After pro- 
viding for the requirements of the guaranty fund, savings 
banks and savings departments of trust companies may pay 
dividends from their net income, but not in excess of three 
and one-half per cent per annum, unless the total value of the 
assets of such savings bank or savings department, as deter- 
mined by the commissioner, shall exceed the amount due the 
depositors by at least five per cent. 

4. Guaranty Savings Banks. Section 26 of said chapter 
261, relative to interest rates on deposits, is hereby repealed. 

5. Amendment. Amend section 8 of said chapter 262 as 
amended by section 4 of chapter 89 of the Laws of 1927 and 
by section 10 of chapter 122 of the Laws of 1929, by striking 
out after the word "certificates" in the eighth line the follow- 
ing words; "provided that not exceeding fifteen per cent of 
the deposits may be so invested whenever the assets of any 
bank, as determined by the bank commissioner, shall exceed 
the deposits by as much as fifteen per cent thereof," so that 
said section as amended shall read as follows: 8. Limita- 
tions. Not exceeding sixty-five per cent of the deposits shall 
be invested in securities authorized under sections 9 to 12 in- 
clusive; not exceeding five per cent of the deposits shall be 
invested in the securities of any one company ; and not exceed- 
ing ten per cent of the deposits shall be invested in securities 
authorized by sections 9 to 12 inclusive other than bonds, 
notes, equipment securities and receivers' certificates. No 
investment shall be made in the securities of a corporation 
authorized by paragraphs VIII, IX and X, of section 12 of this 
chapter, unless at least sixty-five per cent of the gross income 
of such corporation is derived from the direct operation of 
its water, heat, ice, gas, electric light or electric power busi- 
ness, or a combination of two or more of the foregoing de- 
scribed businesses. 

6. Temporary Provision. Until May 15, 1985, mortgage 
bonds described in paragraph I of section 12 of said chapter 



1933] Chapter 67 85 

262 having an annual net income of not less than two million 
dollars shall be legal for investment by savings banks and sav- 
ings departments of trust companies provided that such rail- 
road companies have earned their fixed charges in each of the 
next preceding three years and have met all interest and 
maturing principal payments without default. For the pur- 
poses of this temporary provision mortgage bonds are defined 
to be bonds secured by (a) a first mortgage or a mortgage or 
trust indenture which is in effect -a first mortgage, on property 
owned or operated by such railroad company or (b) a refund- 
ing mortgage which covers at least seventy-five per cent of 
railroad owned in fee by such railroad company at the date of 
the mortgage, and provides for the retirement of all outstand- 
ing mortgage debts which are a prior lien upon such railroad 
owned in fee and covered by said refunding mortgage at the 
date thereof. The provisions of said paragraph I and of any 
other parts of acts inconsistent with this section are hereby 
suspended until May 15, 1935. 

7. Public Service Securities. Amend paragraph VIII of 
section 12 of said chapter 262 as amended by section 16 of 
chapter 122 of the Laws of 1929 and by section 11 of chapter 
96 of the Laws of 1931 by inserting after the word "com- 
panies" in the twelfth line the words: when the total interest 
bearing indebtedness of such companies does not exceed sixty- 
five per cent of the value of the assets as shown by the cor- 
poration's books excluding amounts due from affiliated com- 
panies, and further that such bonds or notes, or the agree- 
ment under which they are issued, provide that so long as 
such bonds or notes are outstanding the then existing mort- 
gage debt shall not be increased unless such bonds or notes 
are equally secured or are refunded by, or paid off out of the 
proceeds of the new issue ; and by inserting at the end of said 
paragraph the words, Provided, however, that until May 15, 
1935, savings banks and savings departments of trust com- 
panies may, with the written approval of the commissioner, 
and not otherwise, reinvest the proceeds of sales of bonds of 
such public service companies in mortgage bonds issued, as- 
sumed or guaranteed as to principal and interest by public 
service companies, provided such bonds were eligible for such 
investment on April 9, 1931, and the net income of the com- 
panies which issued or have assumed or guaranteed the same 



86 Chapter 67 [1933 

shall in each of the three years preceding such investments 
have been not less than one and one-half times the annual in- 
terest on the obligations in question and all other obligations 
of corresponding or prior lien, so that said paragraph as 
amended shall read as follows : VIII. Bonds ; Notes. 
Mortgage bonds issued, assumed, or guaranteed as to principal 
and interest, by public service companies and mortgage bonds 
of companies controlled by such companies for the refunding 
of which mortgage bonds of such companies are specifically 
reserved; provided, that in at least three of the four years 
next preceding such investment the net income of such com- 
panies shall have been not less than two hundred and fifty 
thousand dollars and not less than twice the annual interest 
on the obligations in question and all other obligations of 
corresponding or prior lien; and bonds or notes issued, 
assumed, or guaranteed as to principal and interest, by public 
service companies when the total interest bearing indebted- 
ness of such companies does not exceed sixty-five per cent of 
the value of the assets as shown by the corporation's books 
excluding amounts due from affiliated companies, and further 
that such bonds or notes, or the agreement under which they 
are issued, provide that so long as such bonds or notes are 
outstanding the then existing mortgage debt shall not be in- 
creased unless such bonds or notes are equally secured or are 
refunded by, or paid off out of the proceeds of the new issue ; 
provided, that in at least three of the four years next preced- 
ing such investment the net income of such companies shall 
have been not less than five hundred thousand dollars and not 
less than twice such interest ; provided, also, that in all cases 
under this paragraph the company is subject to the regulatory 
supervision of a state commission or shall operate under a 
franchise or franchises under which at least fifty-one per cent 
of its gross operating revenue is earned and extending at least 
three years beyond the maturity of any such bond, or under 
an indeterminate franchise or permit from, or agreement with, 
a public service commission or other competent public author- 
ity, which franchise, permit or agreement equally protects the 
security of the bondholders. Provided, however, that until 
May 15, 1935, savings banks and savings departments of trust 
companies may, with the written approval of the commis- 
sioner, and not otherwise, reinvest the proceeds of sales of 



1933] Chapter 67 87 

bonds of such public service companies in mortgage bonds 
issued, assumed or guaranteed as to principal and interest by 
public service companies, provided such bonds were eligible 
for such investment on April 9, 1931, and the net income of 
the companies which issued or have assumed or guaranteed 
the same shall in each of the three years preceding such in- 
vestments have been not less than one and one-half times the 
annual interest on the obligations in question and all other 
obligations of corresponding or prior lien. 

8. Change of Publication. Amend section 22 of said chap- 
ter 262, as inserted by section 13, chapter 96 of the Laws of 
1931, bj" striking out all the first sentence relative to publica- 
tion of lists of legal investments in May and November and by 
substituting in place thereof the following: Within the first 
ten days of November of each year the commissioner shall pre- 
pare a list of all the bonds and notes which are then legal in- 
vestments under paragraphs 1, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, 
X, XI and XII of section 12 of this chapter. The commis- 
sioner shall each month issue supplements noting any changes 
in the investment list which have taken place since the prior 
full list was published, so that said section as amended shall

the first ten days of November of each year the commissioner 
shall prepare a fist of all the bonds and notes which are then

Whereas, the employment of women and minors in trade 
and industry in the state of New Hampshire at wages un- 



1933] Chapter 87 107 

reasonably low and not fairly commensurate with the value 
of the services rendered is a matter of grave and vital public 
concern. Many women and minors employed for gain in the 
state of New Hampshire are not as a class upon a level of 
equality in bargaining with their employers in regard to 
minimum fair-wage standards, and "freedom of contract" as 
applied to their relations with their employers is illusory. 
Since a very large percentage of such workers are obliged 
from their week to week wages to support themselves and 
others who are dependent upon them in whole or in part they 
are, by reason of their necessitous circumstances, forced to 
accept whatever wages are offered them. Judged by any 
reasonable standard, wages are in many cases fixed by chance 
and caprice and the wages accepted are often found to bear 
no relation to the fair value of the service rendered. Women 
and minors employed for gain are peculiarly subject to the 
over-reaching of inefficient, harsh or ignorant employers and 
under unregulated competition where no adequate machinery 
exists for the effective regulation and maintenance of mini- 
mum fair-wage standards, the standards such as exist tend 
to be set by the least conscionable employers. In the absence 
of any effective minimum fair-wage rates for women and 
minors, the constant lowering of wages by unscrupulous em- 
ployers constitutes a serious form of unfair competition 
against other employers, reduces the purchasing power of the 
workers and threatens the stability of industry. The evils of 
oppressive, unreasonable and unfair wages as they affect 
women and minors employed in this state are such as to 
render imperative the exercise of the police power in the state 
for the protection of industry and of the women and minors 
employed therein and of the public interest of the community 
at large in their health and well-being and in the prevention 
of the deterioration of the race, now therefore. 

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in 
General Court convened: 
1. Definitions. Terms used in this act shall be construed 
as follows, unless a different meaning is clearly apparent from 
the language or context: 

I. "Commissioner," the labor commissioner. 

II. "Wage board," a board created as provided in section 5 
of this act. 



108 Chapter 87 [1933 

III. "Woman," a female of twenty-one years or over. 

IV. "Minor," a person of either sex under the age of 
twenty-one years. 

V. "Occupation," an industry, trade or business or branch 
thereof or class of work therein in which women or minors are 
gainfully employed, but shall not include domestic service in 
the home of the employer or labor on a farm. 

VI. "An oppressive and unreasonable wage," a wage which 
is both less than the fair and reasonable value of the services 
rendered and less than sufficient to meet the minimum cost of 
living necessary for health. 

VII. "A fair wage," a wage fairly and reasonably com- 
mensurate with the value of the service or class of service 
rendered. In establishing a minimum fair wage for any serv- 
ice or class of service under this act the commissioner and the 
wage board without being bound by any technical rules of 
evidence or procedure (1) may take into account all relevant 
circumstances affecting the value of the service or class of 
service rendered, (2) may be guided by like considerations as 
would guide a court in a suit for the reasonable value of 
services rendered where services are rendered at the request 
of an employer without contract as to the amount of the wage 
to be paid, and (3) may consider the wages paid in the state 
for work of like or comparable character by employers who 
voluntarily maintain minimum fair-wage standards. 

VIII. "A directory order," an order the non-observance of 
which may be published as provided in section 12 of this act. 

IX. "A mandatory order," an order the violation of whicli 
shall be subject to the penalties prescribed in section 22, para- 
graph II, of this act. 

2. Prohibition. It is hereby declared to be against public 
policy for any employer to employ any woman or minor in an 
occupation in this state at an oppressive and unreasonable 
wage as herein defined and any contract, agreement or under- 
standing for or in relation to such employment shall be null 
and void. 

3. Powers of Commissioner. The commissioner or any 
representative duly authorized by him shall have full power 
and authority: 

I. To investigate and ascertain the wages of women and 
minors employed in any occupation in the state; 



1933] . CHAFfER 87 109 

II. To enter the place of business or employment of any 
employer of women and minors in any occupation for the pur- 
pose of examining and inspecting any and all books, registers, 
pay rolls, and other records of any employer of women or 
minors that in any way appertain to or have a bearing upon 
the question of wages of any such women or minors and for 
the purpose of ascertaining whether the orders of the com- 
missioner have been and are being complied with ; and 

III. To require from such employer full and correct state- 
ments in writing of the wages paid to all women and minors 
in his employment. 

4. Investigations Authorized. The commissioner shall 
have the power, and it shall be the duty of the commissioner 
on the petition of fiftj^ or more residents of the state, to cause 
an investigation to be made by any authorized representative 
of the commissioner, of the wages being paid to women or 
minors in any occupation to ascertain whether any substantial 
number of women or minors in such occupation are receiving 
oppressive and unreasonable wages as herein defined. If, on 
the basis of information in the possession of the commissioner, 
with or without a special investigation, the commissioner is 
of the opinion that any substantial number of women or 
minors in any occupation or occupations are receiving such 
oppressive and unreasonable wages, he shall appoint a wage 
board to report upon the establishment of minimum fair-wage 
rates for such women or minors in such occupation or 
occupations. 

.5. Wage Boards; Membership. A wage board shall be 
composed of not more than three representatives of the em- 
ployers in any occupation or occupations, an equal number of 
representatives of the employees in such occupation or occupa- 
tions and of not more than three disinterested persons repre- 
senting the public, one of whom shall be designated as chair- 
man. The commissioner shall appoint the members of such 
wage board, the representatives of the employers and em- 
ployees to be selected so far as practicable from nominations 
submitted by employers and employees in such occupation or 
occupations. Two thirds of the members of such wage board 
shall constitute a quorum and the recommendations or report 
of such wage board shall require a vote of not less than a 
majority of all its members. Members of a wage board shall 



110 Chapter 87 . [1933 

serve without pay, but may be reimbursed for all necessary 
traveling expenses. The commissioner shall make and estab- 
lish from time to time rules and regulations governing the 
selection of a wage board and its mode of procedure not incon- 
sistent herewith. 

6. ; Powers. A wage board shall have power to 

administer oaths and to require by subpoena the attendance 
and testimony of witnesses, the production of all books, rec- 
ords, and other evidence relative to any matters under in- 
vestigation. Such subpoenas shall be signed and issued by a 
member of the wage board and shall be served in the same 
manner as if issued out of the superior court. A wage board 
shall have power to cause depositions of witnesses residing 
within or without the state to be taken in the manner pre- 
scribed for like depositions in civil actions in the superior 
court. 

7. ; Commissioner to Assist. The commissioner shall 

present to a wage board promptly upon its organization all the 
evidence and information in the possession of the commis- 
sioner relating to the wages of women and minor workers in 
the occupation or occupations for which the wage board was 
appointed and all other information which the commissioner 
deems relevant to the establishment of a minimum fair wage 
for such women and minors, and shall cause to be brought be- 
fore the committee any witnesses whom the commissioner 
deems material. A wage board may summon other witnesses 
or call upon the commissioner to furnish additional informa- 
tion to aid it in its deliberations. 

8. ; Report; Recommendations. Within sixty days 

of its organization a wage board shall submit a report includ- 
ing its recommendations as to minimum fair-wage standards 
for the women or minors in the occupation or occupations the 
wage standards of which the wage board was appointed to in- 
vestigate. If its report is not submitted within such time the 
commissioner may constitute a new wage board. A wage 
board may differentiate and classify employments in any oc- 
cupation according to the nature of the service rendered and 
recommend appropriate minimum fair rates for different em- 
ployments. A wage board may also recommend minimum 
fair- wage rates varying with localities if in the judgment of 
the wage board conditions make such local differentiation 



1933] Chapter 87 111 

proper and do not effect an unreasonable discrimination 
against any locality. A wage board may recommend a suit- 
able scale of rates for learners and apprentices in any occupa- 
tion or occupations, which scale of learners' and apprentices' 
rates may be less than the regular minimum fair-wage rates 
recommended for experienced women or minor workers in 
such occupation or occupations. 

9. Acceptance of Report; Hearing. A report from a wage 
board shall be submitted to the commissioner who shall within 
ten days accept or reject such report. If the report is re- 
jected the commissioner shall resubmit the matter to the 
same wage board or to a new wage board with a statement of 
the reasons for the resubmission. If the report is accepted 
it shall be published together with such proposed administra- 
tive regulations as the commissioner may deem appropriate 
to implement the report of the wage board and to safeguard 
the minimum fair-wage standards to be established, and 
notice shall be given by publication of a public hearing to be 
held by the commissioner at which all persons in favor of or 
opposed to the recommendations contained in such report or 
in such proposed regulations may be heard. 

10. Approval of Report; Directory Order. Within ten 
days after such hearing the commissioner shall approve or 
disapprove the report of the wage board. If the report is dis- 
approved the commissioner may resubmit the matter to the 
same wage board or to a new wage board. If the report is 
approved the commissioner shall make a directory order which 
shall define minimum fair-wage rates in the occupation or 
occupations as recommended in the report of the wage board 
and which shall include such proposed administrative regula- 
tions as the commissioner may deem appropriate to imple- 
ment the report of the wage board and to safeguard the mini- 
mum fair-wage standards established. Such administrative 
regulations may include among other things, regulations 
defining and governing learners and apprentices, their rates, 
number, proportion or length of service, piece rates or their 
relations to time rates, overtime or part-time rates, bonuses 
or special pay for special or extra work, deductions for board, 
lodging, apparel or other items or services supplied by the em- 
ployer, and other special conditions or circumstances; and in 
view of the diversities and complexities of different occupa- 



112 Chapter 87 [1933 

tions and the dangers of evasion and nullification, the commis- 
sioner may provide in such regulations without departing from 
the basic minimum rates recommended by the wage board 
such modifications or reductions of or addition to such rates 
in or for such special cases or classes of cases as those herein 
enumerated as the commissioner may find appropriate to safe- 
guard the basic minimum rates established. 

11. Special License in Certain Cases. For any occupation 
for which minimum fair-wage rates have been established the 
commissioner may cause to be issued to a woman or minor, in- 
cluding a learner or apprentice, whose earning capacity is im- 
paired by age or physical or mental deficiency or injury, a 
special license authorizing employment at such wages less 
than such minimum fair-wage rates and for such period of 
time as shall be fixed by the commissioner and stated in the 
license. 

12. Non-observance of Orders. If the commissioner or his 
authorized representative has reason to believe that any em- 
ployer is not observing the provisions of any order made by 
him under section 10 hereof, the commissioner may, on fifteen 
days' notice, summon such employer to appear before him or 
his authorized representative to show cause why the name of 
such employer should not be published as having failed to ob- 
serve the provisions of such order. After such hearing and 
the finding by the commissioner of non-observance, the com- 
missioner may cause to be published in a newspaper or news- 
papers circulating within the state or in such other manner as 
the commissioner may deem appropriate, the name of any such 
employer or employers as having failed in the respects stated 
to observe the provisions of the directory order of the com- 
missioner. Neither the commissioner, nor any authorized 
representative of the commissioner, nor any newspaper pub- 
lisher, proprietor, editor, nor employee thereof shall be liable 
to an action for damages for publishing the name of any em- 
ployer as provided for in this act unless guilty of some wilful 
misrepresentation. 

13. Mandatory Order; Hearing. If at any time after a 
directory minimum fair-wage order has been in effect for five 
months the commissioner is of the opinion that the persistent 
non-observance of such order by one or more employers is a 
threat to the maintenance of fair minimum-wage standards 



1933] Chapter 87 113 

in any occupation or occupations the commissioner may give 
notice by publication of his intention to make such order 
mandatory and of a pubhc hearing to be held at which all per- 
sons in favor of or opposed to a mandatory order may be 
heard. After such hearing the commissioner, if he adheres to 
his opinion, may make the previous directory order or any 
part thereof mandatory and so publish it. 

14. Modification of Wage Order. At any time after a 
minimum fair-wage order has been in effect for one year or 
more, whether during such period it has been directory or 
mandatory, the commissioner may on his own motion and shall 
on petition of fifty or more residents of the state reconsider 
the minimum fair-wage rates set therein and reconvene the 
same wage board or appoint a new wage board to recommend 
whether or not the rate or rates contained in such order should 
be modified. The report of such wage board shall be dealt 
with in the manner prescribed in sections 9 and 10 provided 
that if the order under reconsideration has theretofore been 
made mandatory in whole or in part by the commissioner 
under section 13 then the commissioner in making any new 
order or confirming any old order shall have power to declare 
to what extent such order shall be directory and to what ex- 
tent mandatory. 

15. Modification of Administrative Regulations. The com- 
missioner may at any time and from time to time propose such 
modifications of or additions to any administrative regulations 
included in any directory or mandatory order of the commis- 
sioner without reference to a wage board, as he may deem ap- 
propriate to effectuate the purposes of this act, provided such 
proposed modifications or additions could legally have been 
included in the original order, and notice by publication shall 
be given of a public hearing to be held by the commissioner 
at which all persons in favor of or opposed to such proposed 
modifications or additions may be heard. After such hearing 
the commissioner may make an order putting into effect such 
proposed modifications of or additions to the administrative 
regulations as he deems appropriate, and if the order of which 
the administrative regulations form a part has theretofore 
been made mandatory in whole or in part by the commis- 
sioner under section 13, then the commissioner in making any 
new order shall have the power to declare to what extent such 
order shall be directory and to what extent mandatory. 



114 Chapter 87 [1933 

16. Appeals to Court. Any person aggrieved by any deci- 
sion of the commissioner may apply to the superior court, 
within thirty days after the action complained of has been 
handed down, by a sworn petition, setting forth that such de- 
cision is illegal or unreasonable, in whole or in part, specify- 
ing the grounds upon which the same is claimed to be illegal 
or unreasonable. 

17. ; Procedure. The court shall direct the record in 

the matter appealed from to be laid before it, hear the evidence 
and make such order approving in whole or in part or setting 
aside in whole or in part the decision appealed from as justice 
may require, and may refer any matter or issue arising in the 
proceedings to the commissioner for further consideration. 
The filing of the petition shall not stay proceedings upon the 
decision appealed from, but the court may, on application, 
notice to the commissioner and on cause shown, grant a re- 
straining order. 

18. ; Certifying Record. An order of court to send up 

the record may be complied with by filing either the original 
papers or duly certified copies thereof, or of such portions 
thereof as the order may specify, together with a certified 
statement of such other facts as show the grounds of the 
action appealed from. 

19. ; Hearing, etc. The court may take evidence 

without being bound by any technical rules of evidence or pro- 
cedure, or may appoint a referee to take such evidence as it 
may direct and report the same with his findings of fact and 
conclusions of law. 

20. ; Costs. Costs shall not be allowed against the 

commissioner unless it shall appear to the court that he acted 
with gross negligence, or in bad faith, or with malice in mak- 
ing the decision appealed from. 

21. Employers' Records. Every employer of women and 
minor workers shall keep a true and accurate record of the 
hours worked by each and the wages paid by him to each and 
shall furnish to the commissioner or his authorized representa- 
tive upon demand a sworn statement of the same. Such rec- 
ords shall be open to inspection by the commissioner or his 
authorized representative at any reasonable time. Every em- 
ployer subject to a minimum fair-wage order whether direc- 
tory or mandatory shall keep a copy of such order posted in a 



1933] Chapter 87 115 

conspicuous place in every room in which women or minors 
are employed. Employers shall be furnished copies of orders 
on request without charge. 

22. Penalties. I. Any employer and his agent, or the 
officer or agent of any corporation, who discharges or in any 
other manner discriminates against any employee because such 
employee has served or is about to serve on a wage board or 
has testified or is about to testify before any wage board or 
in any other investigation or proceeding under or related to 
this act or because such employer believes that said employee 
may serve on any wage board or may testify before any wage 
board or in any investigation of proceeding hereunder shr.'^ 
be fined not less than fifty nor more than two hundred dollars. 

II. Any employer or the officer or agent of any corporation 
who pays or agrees to pay to any woman or minor employee 
less than the rates applicable to such woman or minor under 
a mandatory minimum fair-wage order shall be fined not less 
than fifty nor more than two hundred dollars or imprisoned 
not less than ten nor more than ninety days, or both, and each 
week in any day of which such employee is paid less than the 
rate applicable to him under a mandator}^ minimum fair-wage 
order and each employee so paid less shall constitute a separate 
offense. 

III. Any employer or the officer or agent of any coiTDora- 
tion who fails to keep the records required hereunder, or 
refuses to permit the commissioner or his authorized repre- 
sentative to enter his place of business, or fails to furnish such 
records to the commissioner or his authorized representative 
upon request shall be fined not less than twenty-five nor more 
than one hundred dollars, and each day of such failure to keep 
the records requested hereunder or to furnish same to the com- 
missioner or his authorized representative shall constitute a 
separate off"ense. 

23. Civil Actions. If any woman or minor worker is paid 
by his employer less than the minimum fair wage to which he 
is entitled under or by virtue of a mandatory minimum fair- 
wage order he may recover in a civil action the full amount of 
such minimum wage less any amount actually paid to him by 
the employer together with costs and such reasonable at- 
torney's fees as may be allowed by the court, and any agree- 
ment between him and his employer to work for less than such 



116 CHAPTER 88 [1933 

mandatory minimum fair wage shall be no defense to such 
action. At the request of any woman or minor worker paid 
less than the minimum wage to which he was entitled under 
a mandatory order the commissioner may take an assignment 
of such wage claim in trust for the assigning employee and 
may bring any legal action necessary to collect such claim, 
and the employer shall be required to pay the costs and such 
reasonable attorney's fees as may be allowed by the court. 

24. Saving Clause. If any provision hereof, or the applica- 
tion thereof to any person or circumstance, is held invalid the 
remainder of the act and the application of such provision to 
other persons or circumstances shall not be affected thereby. 

25. Takes Effect. This act shall take effect upon its 
passage.

purposes or knowingly employs in the sale or distribution of 
beverages any person who has been convicted of a felony or 
otherwise fails to carry out in good faith the purposes of this 
act the permit of such permittee may be revoked by the com- 
missioners after the permittee has been given an opportunity 
to be heard in his defense. The commission is authorized to

point and shall send notice of such hearing in writing by 
registered mail to the permittee involved and shall publish 
notice of such hearing at least once in a newspaper with cir- 
culation in the town in which such permittee is doing business.

permit if the commission believes, after such hearing, that the 
profit made from the sale of beverages by such permittee is 
unreasonable and excessive.

port and deliver anywhere in the state of New Hampshire 
beverages ordered from and sold by them in vehicles operated 
under the control of themselves or of their employees or 
agents; provided that the owner of every such vehicle shall 
have obtained for such vehicle from the commission a vehicle 
permit for the transportation of beverages. Such permits 
shall be valid for one year from their respective dates unless

operated by him and shall upon demand of any constable, 
policeman, sheriff, deputy sheriff, motor vehicle inspector or 
any employee of the commission produce such permit for in- 
spection and failure to produce such permit shall constitute 
'prima facie evidence of unlawful transportation and shall in

revocation or cancellation of such permit. Except as other- 
wise provided herein beverages may be transported within the 
state of New Hampshire only by a railroad or steamboat cor- 
poration or an individual or corporation regularly and lawfully 
conducting a general express or trucking business and in each 
case holding a transportation permit in full force and effect

making of any such false statement in any such application or 
in any such accompanying statements, whether made with oi' 
without the knowledge or consent of this apphcant, shall, in 
the discretion of the commissioners, constitute sufficient 
cause for the revocation of the permit.

application thereof to any person or circumstances is held 
invalid the remainder of the act and the application of such 
provisions to other persons or circumstances shall not be

unless it is equipped with two lighted headlamps of approxi- 
mately equal candle power which shall throw sufficient light 
ahead within the traveled portion of the highway to make 
clearly visible all vehicles, persons or substantial objects upon 
the roadway within a distance of two hundred feet; and no 
motor cycle shall be operated unless it is equipped with one 
headlamp which shall throw sufficient light ahead to make 
clearly visible all vehicles, persons or substantial objects upon 
the roadway within a distance of one hundred and fifty feet. 
No headlamp shall be used upon any motor vehicle so operated 
unless such lamp is approved by the motor vehicle commis- 
sioner and is equipped with a lens or other device, approved by 
the motor vehicle commissioner, designed to prevent glaring 
rays. No device which obstructs, reflects or alters the beam 
of such headlamp shall be used in connection therewith unless 
approved by the motor vehicle commissioner. Application for 
the approval of a lamp, headlamp reflector, lens, or other 
device, accompanied by a fee of fifty dollars, may be made to 
the motor vehicle comm.issioner by any manufacturer thereof 
or dealer therein. Every lens or other device designed to pre-

dazzling light, when measured twenty-five feet or more ahead 
of the lamps on a surface of uniform grade, shall rise to a 
greater height above such uniform grade than the centers of 
the lamps, provided that in no case shall dangerous or dazzling 
light rise to a greater height than forty-two inches above such 
grade at a distance of seventy-five feet or more ahead of such 
vehicle. Every lamp, bulb or light used in any headlamp on 
a motor vehicle shall be of such candle power as may be 
specified for the approved device in the certificate approving 
the use thereof. Every reflector which is used as a part of 
such headlamp shall have a highly polished reflecting surface 
of silver, glass, or such other material as shall be approved by 
the motor vehicle commissioner after satisfactory tests have 
been made, and every reflecting surface shall be free from 
dents, rust, and other imperfections. The operator of every 
motor vehicle shall permit any properly authorized person to 
inspect the headlighting equipment of such motor vehicle and 
to make such tests as he may deem necessary to determine 
whether the provisions of this section are being complied with.

Takes effect. 



Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in 
General Court convened: 

1. Declaration of Policy. The business of operating motor 
vehicles transporting property for hire on the highways of 
this state affects the interests of the public. The rapid in- 
crease in the number of motor vehicles so operated, and the 
fact that they are not sufficiently regulated, have increased 
the dangers and hazards on public highways, and regulation 
of common carriers and contract carriers as hereinafter de- 
fined is necessary to the end that highways may be rendered 
safer for the use of the general public; that the use of the 
highways for the transportation of property for hire may be 
restricted to the extent required by the necessity and con- 
venience of the shipper and receivers of freight, and that the 
various transportation agencies of the state may be cor- 
related so that public highways may serve the best interest 
of the general public. 

2. Common Carrier Registration. No person, corporation, 
partnership, association, railroad or railway company, shall 
operate any motor vehicle, not running upon rails or tracks, 
upon any public highway transporting property for hire as a 
common carrier, between points within this state, without 



1933] Chapter 106 147 

first obtaining a registration certificate and special number 
plates from the public service commission, hereinafter called 
the commission. Said applicant shall file with the commis- 
sion the following: 

I. The schedule of rates to be charged applying to the 
service to be rendered, such rates to be computed on a mileage 
basis.* 

II. An indemnity bond or insurance policy which shall ade- 
quately provide for the reasonable protection of the owner or 
owners of the property transported. 

III. The routes over the highways within the state over 
which it is proposed to operate said motor vehicle or vehicles 
as common carriers. 

IV. The fees required as hereinafter provided. 

If the indemnity bond or insurance policy are satisfactory 
the commission shall issue a registration certificate and special 
number plates. In cases where a common carrier has been 
rendering a substantially uninterrupted service, the operation 
may lawfully be continued pending issuance of the certificate 
if application is made within fifteen days of the effective date 
of this act. 

3. Contract Carrier Registration. The term contract 
carrier as used in this act shall include every person, firm or 
corporation transporting property for hire by motor vehicle 
on any public way in this state, other than common carriers, 
those transporting products of their own manufacture or 
labor and those exempted in section 4 of this act. Whether 
or not any person, firm or corporation is so transporting prop- 
erty shall be a question of fact. No contract carrier shall 
operate any motor vehicle for the transportation of property 
for hire on any public way between points within this state 
without first obtaining a registration certificate and special 
number plates from the commission. If any contract carrier 
operates upon any public way in this state in competition with 
any common carrier or common carriers, such contract carrier 
shall file with the commission the rates, rules or regulations 
applying to such service provided, however, that such filing 
shall not be necessary if property is to be transported for any 
common carrier when the rates charged the public for the 
transportation of such property are filed with the commission. 



Amended section 1, chapter 169, post. 



148 Chapter 106 [1933 

4. Exemptions. There shall be exempted from the pro- 
visions of this act: 

I. Motor vehicles not principally engaged in the transporta- 
tion of property for hire. 

II. Motor vehicles operating exclusively within the limits 
of a single city or incorporated town or within ten miles of the 
limits thereof or motor vehicles operating beyond such ten- 
mile limit on occasional trips, not exceeding two trips in any 
thirty-day period. 

III. Motor vehicles while engaged exclusively in work for 
any branch of the government of the United States or for any 
department of this state, or for any county, city, town or 
village. 

IV. Motor vehicles engaged exclusively while in the de- 
livery of the United States mail. 

5. Change of Rates. No common or contract carrier shall 
charge, demand, exact, receive or collect for any service 
rendered an amount greater or less than the rates on file with 
the commission, provided, however, that any such carrier 
holding a registration certificate may file new rates, rules 
and regulations or change the highways over which it gives 
service by filing notice thereof with the commission. 

6. Public Record. The records relating to each registra- 
tion of common and contract carriers under this act shall be 
kept on file at the office of the commission and shall be avail- 
able to the public at all reasonable times. 

7. Name of Owner. No motor vehicle shall be operated 
on the highways of this state transporting property for hire 
unless it has printed on both sides of said vehicle in plain, 
legible printing the name and address of the owner and the 
weight of the vehicle and the gross weight for which said 
vehicle is registered by the motor vehicle commissioner. 

8. Hours of Service. It shall be unlawful for any driver 
to operate, or for the owner thereof to require or permit any 
driver to operate, any motor vehicle for the transportation of 
property for hire on the highways of this state when the 
driver has been continuously on duty for more than twelve 
hours, and after a driver has been continuously on duty for 
twelve hours it shall be unlawful for him or for the owner of 
the vehicle to permit him to operate any such motor vehicle 
on the highways of this state until he shall have had at least 



1933] Chapter 106 149 

eight consecutive hours off duty. It shall be unlawful for any 
driver to operate, or for the owner thereof to require or per- 
mit any driver to operate, any motor vehicle for the trans- 
portation of property for hire on the highways of this state 
when the driver has been on duty more than sixteen hours in 
the aggregate in any twenty-four-hour period, and when the 
driver has been on duty sixteen hours in any twenty-four- 
hour period it shall be unlawful for him to operate or for the 
owner thereof to require or permit him to operate a motor 
vehicle on the highways of this state until he shall have had 
at least ten consecutive hours off duty. Periods of release 
from duty herein required shall be given at such place and 
under such circumstances that rest and relaxation from the 
strain of the duties of the employment may be obtained. No 
period oft" duty shall be deemed to break the continuity of 
service unless it be for at least three consecutive hours at a 
place where there is opportunity for a rest. In case of an un- 
foreseen emergency the driver or chauffeur may complete his 
run or tour of duty if such run or tour of duty, but for the 
delay caused by such emergency, would reasonably have been 
completed without a violation of this section, provided, how- 
ever, that the provisions of this section shall not apply to 
trucks while under the control of two licensed operators. The 
commission shall have authority to enforce the provisions of 
this section. 

9. Fees. Each application for a registration certificate or 
special number plates for operation as a common carrier shall 
be accompanied by a fee of five dollars, except that the fee for 
the period ending December 31, 1933, shall be two dollars and 
fifty cents, such money to be used for the purpose of defray- 
ing the expenses of administering this act. A copy of said 
certificate and the special number plates shall at all times be 
displayed on each motor vehicle authorized by the commis- 
sion to operate under the provisions of the foregoing sections. 
Tlie charge for each additional plate and copy of registration 
certificate shall be two dollars. In the case of contract car- 
riers the charge for registration certificate and special num- 
ber plates shall be two dollars. Plates shall not be changed 
from one vehicle to another unless written notice thereof has 
been mailed to the commission. No certificate may be trans- 
ferred or sold without the consent of the commission authoriz- 



150 Chapter 107 [1933 

ing such transfer or sale. No certificate granted under this 
act shall be effective after the thirty-first day of December 
of the year of its issue. The renewals shall be issued upon 
application made in accordance with the commission's require- 
ments upon the payment of fees prescribed for original 
applications. 

10. Operation by Railroads. A railroad operating motor 
vehicles not running upon rails or tracks upon the public ways, 
whether or not such operation is carried out by means of a 
subsidiary or subsidiary companies, shall be subject to the 
provisions of this act as to its rates and services, and as to 
such operation shall not be subject to the requirements con- 
tained in the statutes applying to common carriers by railroad 
as to rates and services.

relating to bank commissioner and banks by adding a new 
chapter following chapter 268, as follows: 

CHAPTER 268-A 

REGULATION, CONSERVATION AND REORGANIZATION UNDER 
DIRECTION OF THE BANK COMMISSIONER 

1. Regulation. The commissioner upon the application of 
the board of trustees or directors of any institution under his 
supervision, may regulate the time, amount and manner of 
payment and withdrawal of all classes of deposits; the recep- 
tion of all classes of deposits ; the investment of assets within 
statutory limits; the amount of reserve without limitation 
otherwise imposed ; the borrowing of money ; the pledge of 
assets; the valuation of assets; the collection and payment of 
accounts; the payment of dividends; the employment and 
compensation of personnel ; the retirement of shares ; and any 
other business of such institution, whenever and during such 
time and to the extent that he deems such action necessary 
for the protection of its depositors and other creditors. Regu- 
lations hereunder shall be by written order signed by the com- 
missioner and filed in his office. Copies thereof signed by the 



1933] Chapter 114 161 

commissioner shall be served as hereinafter provided. The 
commissioner may change, cancel or terminate any such 
orders from time to time as he deems the interest of such 
depositors or creditors require. Until May 15, 1935, the com- 
missioner may exercise any and all rights and powers con- 
ferred by this section without application of the board of trus- 
tees or directors when he deems the public good so requires. 

2. , Notice. Notice of any order of the commissioner 

made hereunder shall be sufficient if served on the treasurer 
or cashier or other person in charge of the business of the 
institution affected and on one other officer or a trustee or 
director thereof but any order relating to the withdrawal, 
payment or reception of deposits shall, in addition thereto, be 
posted in that part of the institution commonly used by its 
depositors. Any person may serve such notice. The commis- 
sioner may give such further notice of any such order as he 
deems desirable. Notice of any such order relating to the pay- 
ment of accounts other than deposits may be given creditors 
by registered mail and a return receipt signed by or for a 
creditor shall be sufficient evidence of receipt thereof. 

3. , Violation. It shall be unlawful for any such in- 
stitution or officer, trustee, director or employee thereof hav- 
ing notice or knowledge of any such order to violate the pro- 
visions thereof. 

4. Limitation of Actions. No right of action by or for any 
party in interest, including persons under disability, shall lie 
at law or in equity for the recovery of any money or property 
in excess of that which may be paid or delivered by such in- 
stitution under any such order. The assets of an institution, 
under regulation as to payment of money, shall not be subject 
to attachment or trustee on process against it as a principal 
defendant. No mandatory or restraining court order shall be 
made against the commissioner or institution under his regula- 
tion hereunder or its conservator, officers, trustees, directors 
or employees, except as provided in section 8. 

5. Conservator. Whenever the commissioner shall deem 
it necessary in order to conserve the assets of any institution 
under his supervision for the benefit of the depositors and other 
creditors thereof, he may appoint a conservator of such insti- 
tution and require of him such bond and security as the com- 
missioner deems proper. The conservator's appointment shall 



162 Chapter 114 [1933 

be recorded in the office of the secretary of state and a copy 
thereof shall be placed in the corporate records of the institu- 
tion affected. The conservator, under the direction of the 
commissioner, shall take possession of the books, records and 
assets of every description of such institution and take such 
action as may be necessary to conserve its assets and to 
manage, direct and control the business of the institution if 
any part of its business is to be continued or resumed. 

6. , Powers and Duties. The conservator shall have 

all of the powers which could otherwise be exercised by the 
officers, trustees and directors of such institution and what- 
ever powers are necessary to carry out the provisions of this 
chapter and he shall be subject to all of the duties otherwise 
imposed upon them as extended or limited by this chapter, 
and by regulations promulgated by the commissioner under 
the provisions of section 1. The appointment of a conservator 
shall not affect any regulation hereunder in force at the time 
of his appointment nor the right of the commissioner to make 
further regulations hereunder. The compensation and ex- 
pense of the conservator and his assistants and the other 
expense of the institution shall be paid from its assets upon 
order of the commissioner and shall be a lien thereon prior to 
any other lien. No officer, trustee, director or stockholder 
shall be liable for any act of a conservator or in any respect 
for any result of conservatorship nor shall they be liable for 
any act of omission during the time that a conservator re- 
mains in possession of such institution. 

7. , Removal. The commissioner may remove a con- 
servator at pleasure. He shall terminate such appointment 
when he deems the interest of the depositors and other credi- 
tors no longer requires conservatorship and permit such in- 
stitution to resume the transaction of its business subject to 
such terms, conditions, restrictions and limitations as he may 
prescribe. If at any time the commissioner deems it in the 
interest of depositors and other creditors to liquidate any in- 
stitution under his supervision, whether under regulation or 
conservatorship or not, he may proceed under the provisions 
of chapter 268, and the appointment of a conservator of such 
institution may be vacated or continued by order of court 
thereunder. 

8. Review and Appeal. Any party in interest may apply 



1933] Chapter 114 163 

in writing to the commissioner at any time for a change, can- 
cellation or termination of any order of regulation, a}Dpoint- 
ment of conservator or payment of compensation or expense 
during conservatorship and the commissioner shall take such 
action thereon as he deems the interest of depositors and 
other creditors require. Any such party aggrieved by the 
action of the commissioner or his refusal or neglect to act on 
such application within fourteen days from the date of such 
application may appeal within the next seven days from said 
order by petition to the superior court. Upon hearing after 
such notice as the court may prescribe, the burden of proof 
shall be upon the petitioner to show that such order is clearly 
unreasonable or unlawful, and such order shall be deemed to 
be prima facie lawful and reasonable and shall not be set aside 
or vacated except for errors of law unless the court by a clear 
preponderance of the evidence before it finds that such order 
is unjust or unreasonable. No appeal shall lie to orders of 
court made in connection therewith unless taken within seven 
days from the date thereof. The commissioner shall have 
the right of such appeal. Upon such appeal any two justices 
of the supreme court, without hearing, may stay any order of 
the superior court to the extent that such order of the commis- 
sioner shall continue in effect pending final decision of the 
supreme court. The superior court shall have the right to 
issue injunctions to prevent multipHcity of proceedings for 
change, cancellation or termination of orders of the commis- 
sioner made under the provisions of this chapter, or to prevent 
undue interference with the regulation, conservation or re- 
organization thereunder and to issue mandatory or restraining 
orders against the commissioner, a conservator, officer, trustee, 
director or employee of an institution under the supervision 
of the commission for violation of law or lawful order. No 
other right of injunction or mandatory order shall lie against 
the commissioner or any person acting under his direction or 
control or orders made by him under the provisions of this 
chapter. 

9. Preferred Stock or Shares. Notwithstanding any other 
provision of law the stock or shareholders of any institution 
under the supervision of the commissioner, with or ^without 
conservatorship, having capital stock or shares, including cer- 
tificates of ownership of capital, surplus and undivided profits 



164 Chapter 114 [1933 

or guaranty or special funds may by majority vote of said 
stock or shares, with the approval of the commissioner, issue 
such additional stock or shares as the needs of such institution 
require. Such additional stock or shares may be of such 
classes of preference over other stock or shares as to divi- 
dends, retirement, and distribution in liquidation, and such 
classes may be of such par value as the commissioner shall 
determine. No dividends on stock or shares issued and out- 
standing at the time of the first issue of preferred stock or 
shares hereunder shall be declared or paid until all preferred 
stock or shares issued hereunder shall have been retired unless 
such preferred stock or shares shall otherwise provide. No 
filing fee or franchise tax shall be assessed upon or on account 
of any preferred stock or shares issued under the provisions 
of this chapter. Such preferred stock or shares may be given 
voting rights, shall not be subject to assessment and the 
owners thereof shall not be liable for any debts, contracts or 
engagements of the issuing institution. Each share of each 
class shall be equal in all respects to every other share of the 
same class. No preferred stock or share shall be issued until 
the par value thereof shall have been paid in by cash, other 
assets approved by the commissioner, or charged against the 
deposit of the purchaser in the issuing institution. One class 
of such preferred stock or shares may be set aside for sale to 
depositors and other creditors of the institution in proportion 
to their deposits or undisputed claims. Notice of such right 
to purchase shall be given each depositor and other creditor by 
mail postpaid addressed at his or its last known post-office ad- 
dress. Such notice may be waived in writing. Any unpurchased 
stock or shares of such class remaining after ninety days after 
such notice or waiver may be sold, with the approval of the 
commissioner, without further restriction as to purchaser. Not- 
withstanding any other provision of law, any trustee, guardian, 
conservator or other fiduciary, administrator and executor or 
other legal representative may purchase stock or shares of 
such preferred class to the extent of the amount standing to 
their credit in the issuing instituion or their claim against the 
same but such purchase shall be made only through charge 
against their deposit in or claim against such institution. The 
commissioner may call meetings of stock or shareholders at 
any time for the purpose of taking action on a proposal to 



1933] Chapter 114 165 

issue a class or classes of preferred stock or shares. Notice 
of any meeting of stock or shareholders for that purpose called 
by the commissioner or otherwise legally called shall be suf- 
ficient if sent by registered mail to each stock or shareholder 
at his address as it appears on the records of the institution 
fourteen days at least before the day of said meeting and the 
commissioner may send such notice. Such notice may be 
waived. Whenever any preferred stock or shares shall have 
been authorized under the provisions of this section, the 
charter, articles of association or agreement and by-laws of 
the institution affected shall be construed to have been 
amended to give effect to such change. Notwithstanding any 
other provision of law any institution, under the supervision 
of the commissioner, by majority vote of its stock or shares 
or by majority vote of corporation members if a mutual savings 
bank, with the approval of the commissioner, may issue pre- 
ferred creditors certificates. The commissioner may approve 
such issue when it appears to him that the needs of the in- 
stitution or bank can not otherwise be met or reasonably 
anticipated. Such preferred creditors certificates shall be of 
such amounts and on such terms as the commissioner shall 
determine. They shall not be issued at discount nor for satis- 
faction of existing obligations. They shall be issued only for 
cash for the purpose of raising new capital or money. They 
shall constitute a holder thereof a preferred creditor of the 
issuing institution or bank. 

10. Federal Benefits. Notwithstanding any other provi- 
sion of law, any institution under the supervision of the com- 
missioner is authorized to exercise, with his approval, such 
power and do any and all things necessary to avail itself of the 
benefits of the act of Congress of March 9, 1933, entitled "An 
Act to Provide Relief in the Existing National Emergency in 
Banking, and for Other Purposes" and any acts in amend- 
ment thereof, and any other acts of Congress granting powers 
to or conferring benefits on such institutions now or hereafter 
adopted, without limiting or impairing in any way the author- 
ity upon the commissioner under the laws of this state. 

11. Reorganization. A majority of the stock or share- 
holders of any institution under the supervision of the com- 
missioner by stock or share vote, or a majority of the corpora- 
tion members of a mutual savings bank may submit to the 



166 Chapter 114 [1933 

commissioner at any time a plan for reorganization of such 
institution or bank. Such plan shall be in writing and shall 
be signed by the applicants. If such plan does not provide for 
the reduction or deferring payment of the amount standing 
to the credit of any depositor or for the reduction of the 
amount or deferring payment due any other creditor, said 
plan shall become effective upon approval of the commissioner. 
If such plan does provide for such reduction or deferment it 
must be accompanied by the written assent of the owners of 
at least two thirds in amount of the total deposits and other 
liabilities so affected. The commissioner, if he approves the 
plan, shall file it with the superior court in the county in which 
is located the office and principal place of business of the in- 
stitution affected together with a petition for its allowance. 
The commissioner shall also file with said petition a statement 
of the condition of such institution including his valuation of 
its assets. He shall file with said plan the written assent of 
depositors, other creditors and stock or shareholders or mem- 
bers of a mutual savings bank corporation who have agreed 
to its provisions. The court after such notice, to depositors, 
creditors and stock or shareholders or corporation members 
whose assent is not so filed, as may be ordered shall upon hear- 
ing make such orders thereon as the facts warrant and shall ap- 
prove such plan with such changes therein as are approved by 
the commissioner as justice and equity shall require. No ap- 
peal shall lie to such orders and approval unless taken within 
thirty days from the date thereof. If no appeal is so taken, 
or upon the dismissal of such appeal if taken, such approval 
shall become final and the reorganization plan thereunder 
effective forthwith and all parties in interest shall forever be 
bound by the provisions thereof. Such reorganization plan 
shall provide for the issue to each depositor of a negotiable 
non-interest bearing certificate showing the amount of 
deficit charged to his account. The issuing institution with 
the approval of the commissioner, by majority stock or share 
vote or by majority vote of corporation members if a mutual 
savings bank, may redeem such certificates in whole or pro- 
portionately in part after all preferred stock or shares, issued 
under the provisions of this chapter, has or have been re- 
tired, or provision for such retirement, approved by the 
superior court or assented to in writing by the owners of such 



1933] Chapter 114 167 

stock or shares has been made; but such certificates shall not 
otherwise be deemed to be a liability of such institution. No 
dividend shall be declared or paid and no distribution in 
liquidation shall be made on any stock or shares of the issuing 
institution, except on preferred stock or shares issued under 
the provisions of this chapter, until such certificates have 
been redeemed in full, or provision for such redemption, ap- 
proved by the commissioner, has been made. 

12. Retirement, Restoration. Notwithstanding any other 
provision of law the stock or shareholders of any institution 
authorized by section 9 to issue preferred stock or shares, 
with or without conservatorship and with or without author- 
ized issue of preferred stock or shares, with the approval of 
the commissioner, may, by majority stock or share vote, reduce 
the amount of its capital or its guarantee or other special fund, 
in which shares of ownership have been issued, through the 
retirement of stock or shares or the reduction of par or face 
value thereof. Any such reduction may by like vote and ap- 
proval be restored in whole or proportionately in part from 
future earnings or profits when the capital fund and surplus 
is not or will not thereby be impaired. No retirement of stock 
or shares or reduction in par value thereof hereunder shall 
operate to relieve the owner thereof of any liability attaching 
to the ownership of such stock or shares so retired or reduced 
in par value. 

2. Other Powers not Limited. The provisions of this act 
shall not be construed to limit any other power conferred by 
law upon the bank commissioner. 

3. Application. If any provision of this act, or the applica- 
tion thereof to any person or circumstances, is held invalid, 
the remainder of the act, and the application of such provision 
to other persons or circumstances, shall not be affected 
thereby. 

4. Takes Effect. This act shall take effect upon its 
passage.

may be determined by the governor and council, for the pur- 
pose of carrying out the provisions of this chapter. Such 



220 Chapter 159 [1933 

bonds shall contain an express guarantee, which shall be 
deemed a contract on the part of the state, that tolls will be 
collected, in accordance with the provisions of this act, until 
the date of maturity of said bonds or until sufficient money 
shall have accumulated to pay said bonds and the interest 
thereon at the dates of maturity, shall be in such form and 
such denominations as the governor and council shall de- 
termine, may be registerable as to both principal and interest, 
shall be countersigned by the governor and shall be deemed 
a pledge of the faith and credit of the state. The secretary

6. Tolls. There shall be collected for the use of said 
Hampton Harbor Toll Bridge and the approaches thereto after 
the same are acquired by the state, such charges or tolls as 
the governor and council shall deem reasonable from the 
travelers thereon. The tolls collected shall be deposited with 
the state treasurer who shall keep the same in a separate 
account designated by the name of the bridge and the operat- 
ing expenses and maintenance of said bridge shall be paid 
from these funds. The balance remaining after the payment 
of the operating expenses and the maintenance shall be applied 



1933] Chapter 159 221 

by the governor, with the approval of the council, to the pay- 
ment of the interest and principal of the bonds issued here- 
under. In the event of such balance proving insufficient to 
pay any accruing installment of such interest, or the principal 
of said bonds at their maturity, the governor, with the ap- 
proval of the council, shall draw his warrant for payment of 
the deficiency out of any funds in the treasury not otherwise 
appropriated. Toll collections shall continue until cessation 
of the same is ordered by the governor and council. 

7. Eminent Domain. If the governor and council shall be 
unable to agree with the owners upon the price to be paid for 
said bridge or such lands, rights or easements as may be 
deemed necessary for the carrying out of the provisions of 
this act, excepting lands, rights or easements to be acquired 
from the town of Hampton, the governor and council are 
hereby authorized and empowered to take and appropriate the 
same for the use of 'the state and shall file in the superior 
court a petition, in behalf of the state for the assessment of 
damages occasioned by such taking. Such notice of the 
petition shall be given to interested parties as may be ordered 
by the superior court and the procedure shall be such as 
justice may require. Either party shall be entitled to have 
the damages assessed by jury, and upon the payment or satis- 
faction of the judgment the title shall vest in the state. 

8. Operation and Maintenance. The Hampton Harbor Toll 
Bridge, including the approaches thereto and appurtenances, 
when acquired under the provisions of this chapter shall be 
operated and maintained out of the toll receipts as provided 
in section 6, until toll collections shall cease and thereafter 
the expense of maintenance and operation shall be a charge 
upon the highway funds. 

9. Federal Appropriation. The governor and council, with 
such co-operation as the New Hampshire members of congress 
and the New Hampshire Shore and Beach Preservation and 
Development Commission and other interested parties may 
give, shall, in conformity with the announced plan of the

Whereas this distress is so general and widespread as to 
require a unified direction of measures for its relief, now

sulting from the existing depression but not longer than De-

relief. The governor is hereby authorized to appoint said 
director and fix his compensation and may remove him for 
cause. All expenses incurred by said director under the pro- 
visions of this act shall be paid by the state treasurer from 
the emergency relief fund hereinafter provided for. 

2. Powers and Duties. Said director shall have general

charge of the administration of the poor relief provided for 
in this act, may make such rules and regulations as may be 
necessary for said administration, shall exercise a general 
supervision of the work in the state, and shall have such other 
powers and duties as may be necessary and reasonably re- 
quired for the effective administration of this act. 

3. Poor Relief. During the time when this act is in force 
said director is hereby directed to assume and exercise when- 
ever and so far as it may be expedient all the authority and 
powers now vested in other agencies of the counties, cities or 
towns in respect to aid for persons who are poor and unable 
to support themselves, other than such persons as are cared 
for in institutions of the state and of the counties, and to 
grant or administer aid either by direct relief or employment 
projects in such manner and under such conditions as may be 
necessary. 

4. Administration. For the effective administration of 
this act the director is hereby authorized to divide the state 
into administrative districts, provided such districts do not 
cut across county boundaries, and the director shall appoint a 
trained welfare worker to have general charge of the adminis- 
tration of poor relief under this act in each district and such 
other assistants as may be necessary and fix their compensa- 
tion. Such workers and assistants shall be subject to super- 
vision by the director and shall serve during the pleasure of 
the director. Said workers are hereby directed to consult with 
and employ in the administration of this act county commis- 
sioners, selectmen, overseers of the poor and other agencies of

act or of existing statutes. The assistants employed by the 
director as herein provided other than the workers in charge 
in each district shall be residents of New Hampshire. 

5. Authority to Accept Funds. The governor and council 
are hereby authorized on behalf of the state, to accept and to

partnerships or corporations. 

6. Bonds Authorized. In order to supply the additional 
funds needed for carrying out the purposes of this act, the 
state treasurer is hereby authorized, in the discretion of the 
governor and council, to borrow in such amounts as may be 
determined by the governor and council upon the credit of the 
state six hundred thousand dollars ($600,000) for the calendar 
year ending December 31, 1933 and one million two hundred 
thousand dollars ($1,200,000) for the calendar year ending 
December 31, 1934, and for that purpose may issue bonds or 
notes in the name of, and on behalf of, the state at the lowest 
rate of interest obtainable, in such form, such denominations, 
at such dates of maturity and at such time as the governor 
and council may determine. Such bonds and notes shall be 
countersigned by the governor and shall be deemed a pledge 
of the faith and credit of the state. The secretary of state 
shall keep an account of all such bonds and notes countersigned 
by the governor, showing the number and amount of each bond 
or note, the time of countersigning, the time when payable 
and date of delivery to the treasurer. The state treasurer 
shall keep an account of each bond and note, showing the 
number thereof, the name of the person to whom sold, the 
amount received for the same, the date of the sale and the 
time when payable. The treasurer may negotiate and sell such 
bonds or notes by direction of the governor and council in such 
manner as they may determine most advantageous to the 
state. 

7. Emergency Relief Fund. The money received from the 
sale of the bonds or notes authorized by section 6 hereof, and 
all moneys received by the state as provided in section 5 
hereof, shall be deposited with the state treasurer to the 
credit of a special fund to be known as the Emergency Relief 
Fund and paid out by him upon warrants drawn by the gover- 
nor for the purposes of this act alone; provided that any 
moneys remaining to the credit of such fund after the termi- 
nation of the period during which this act is in force, and after 
all obligations against such fund have been liquidated shall 
be held by the state treasurer and applied to the payment of 
the bonds or notes issued hereunder. 

8. Accounts; Allocation of Payments. The director under the 



1933] Chapter 160 225 

supervision of the governor shall cause to be kept an accurate 
account of all moneys received to be credited to the said special 
fund and of all payments made therefrom. The accounts shall 
be of such a character as will distinguish the payments made 
in the form of direct relief of persons in the several counties, 
cities and towns and the governor and council shall have the 
power to make rules and regulations relative to the allocation 
of payments for such relief to the several counties, cities and 
towns; provided that not less than ninety thousand dollars 
from the proceeds of the sale of the bond issue provided for 
herein shall be allocated to any county including its cities 
and towns if sums totaling such amount are requested by the 
county commissioners; and provided further that not less 
than five per cent of the balance of the Emergency Relief Fund 
other than the proceeds of the bond issue shall be allocated 
to any county including its cities and towns if sums totaling 
such amount are requested by the county commissioners and

9. Reimbursements of Fund by Counties, Cities and Towns. 
All expenditures in carrying out the purpose of this act shall 
be made in the first instance from said emergency fund but 
the several counties, cities and towns shall, from time to time, 
reimburse said fund for all expenditures allocated to said 
counties, cities and towns to the extent of twenty-five per cent 
thereof. For the purpose of fixing tax rates and tax assess- 
ments of the several counties, cities and towns the director 
and the county commissioners are authorized to estimate the 
amount to be charged to each county, city and town and to 
instruct the tax commission in regard thereto. The county 
conventions shall take into account in making their appropria- 
tions the amounts expended and debts incurred prior to the 
passage of this act for the purpose of poor relief, together 
with such reimbursements to the state as the county is re- 
quired to make under the provisions of this act. 

The selectmen of towns and mayors of cities are hereby 
authorized and shall, upon instructions from the tax commis- 
sion, direct the fixing of tax rates and the assessment of taxes, 
so that only .such amounts shall be raised for the relief of the 
poor of the town or city as will equal the amounts expended 
and the debts incurred for poor relief prior to the passage of 
this act, together with reimbursements to the state as the 



226 Chapter 160 [1933 

city or town is required to make under the provisions of this 
act. In the administering and for the purposes of this act 
alone the director shall have the power to determine what per- 
sons are poor and unable to support themselves, and to provide 
a procedure for the determination of all questions arising rela- 
tive thereto, and to make agreements with other states in re- 
spect to the aid of, or the reimbursement for aid granted to, 
persons not residents for a length of time as determined in 
such agreements, of the state in which they happen to be at 
the time the aid is sought by or given to them. 

10. Termination of State of Emergency. The governor, 
with the advice and consent of the council, may at any time 
declare the termination of the emergency for the meeting of 
which this act is passed, but failing such declaration such 
emergency shall be deemed to be terminated on December 31, 
1934; and upon such termination the director shall cease to 
have the powers and duties by this act conferred upon him 
and the affairs of the organization set up for the administra- 
tion of this act shall be wound up and liquidated. 

11. Report. On the termination of the emergency the 
director shall cause to be prepared and submitted to the gen- 
eral court a report setting forth an account of all payments 
into and from said special fund and of all operations had in 
carrying out the provisions of this act. 

12. Suspension of Laws. All acts and parts of acts in- 
consistent herewith are hereby suspended while this act is in

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in 
General Court convened: 

1. Declaration of Public Emergency. It is hereby declared 
that a public emergency exists affecting the welfare, comfort 
and safety of the people of the state resulting from the 
abnormal disruption of economic and financial processes. 
Therefore, in the public interest the necessity for legislative 
intervention by the enactment of the provisions hereinafter 
prescribed is hereby declared as a matter of legislative 
determination. 

2. Definition. As used hereinafter the word "person" 
shall mean individuals, associations, and corporations. 

Foreclosure Sale Proceedings 

3. Sale. In proceedings for the foreclosure of mortgages 
or liens on real property under the provisions of chapter 215 
of the Public Laws and chapter 217 of the Public Laws, as 
amended by chapter 88 of the Laws of 1927, the mortgagor 
may petition the court having jurisdiction thereof to order 
the officer foreclosing such mortgages or liens not to take 
possession of, advertise for sale, or sell such property if such 
proceedings would work an unjust hardship upon the peti- 
tioner because of abnormal economic conditions. 

4. Petition. The petition shall be sworn to under oath. 



228 Chapter 161 [1933 

shall set forth the manner in which such taking of possession, 
advertising for sale, or the sale of such property would work 
an unjust hardship upon the petitioner, and the length of time 
it would be necessary to suspend such proceedings in order 
to avoid unjust hardship upon the petitioner, and shall include 
an affidavit under oath containing a schedule of all the debts 
of the petitioner, secured or unsecured, the names and 
addresses of his creditors, any securities held by such 
creditors, a full statement of his assets, their present value, 
and their value under normal economic conditions, and a brief 
statement of his past conduct in meeting his legal obligations 
and liabilities. 

5. Notice. The petitioner shall cause a notice of such 
petition to be given to all parties to the foreclosure proceed- 
ings by mailing, by registered mail, to the last known address 
of such parties a copy of the petition. 

6. Hearing. Upon a sworn affidavit of the petitioner that 
such notice has been given the court shall forthwith fix a time 
and place for a hearing thereon. 

7. Orders. If after due hearing the court shall determine 
that the taking of possession, advertising for sale, or sale of 
such property under foreclosure proceedings would work an 
unjust hardship on the petitioner, and that there is reason- 
able probability that such hardship would be avoided by 
suspending for a reasonable period said taking of possession, 
advertising for sale, or sale of said property, he may, upon 
such terms and conditions as justice requires, order said tak- 
ing of possession, advertising for sale or sale suspended for 
such reasonable period. 

8. Additional Orders. A party may apply at any time to 
the court having jurisdiction thereof for such additional 
orders in the premises as may be proper under the foregoing 
sections, and such court shall have jurisdiction and authority 
to revoke, revise, alter or modify any previous orders therein 
made by him or by any justice of such court. 

Proceedings to Redeem 

9. Redemption. While this act shall be and remain in 
force, in proceedings to foreclose a mortgage or lien upon real 
property upon petition by the mortgagor or lienor the court at 
the time of entering the decree of foreclosure, in his discre- 



1933] Chapter 161 229 

tion, and upon such terms and conditions as shall be equitable 
under the then existing conditions, may extend the time with- 
in which the premises may be redeemed, for such period as 
would not work an unjust hardship upon the parties inter- 
ested, and at any time thereafter upon the petition of the 
mortgagor, lienor or those holding under him, on notice to the 
mortgagee and after hearing thereon, may reopen such decree 
and make such further orders relating thereto as justice may 
require. The provisions of this section, so far as pertinent 
thereto, shall apply to decrees heretofore entered where the 
time therein fixed for redemption has not expired on the date 
of such petition. 

10. Additional Orders. Any party in interest may apply 
to the court at any time upon the grounds of a change in 
conditions and the court, upon due notice and hearing, may,

1933] Chapter 182 275 

be construed as follows unless a different meaning is clearly 
apparent from the language or context: 

1. "Person" shall mean and include individuals, corpora- 
tions, trustees, lessees, holders of beneficial equitable title, 
voluntary associations, receivers and partnerships. 

IL "Affiliate" shall mean and include the following: (a) 
Every person owning or holding directly or indirectly twenty 
per cent or more of the voting capital stock of a public utility, 
(b) Any corporation, voluntary association or trust twenty 
per cent or more of the voting capital stock of which is owned 
or controlled directly or indirectly by a person owning or con- 
trolling directly or indirectly twenty per cent or more of the 
voting capital stock of a public utility, (c) Any person with 
whom a public utility has a management or service contract 
or arrangement of the character set forth in section 2, but 
not including contracts for personal services with persons not 
otherwise affiliated. 

Contracts Between Public Utilities and Affiliates 

2. Filing of Contracts. The original or a verified copy of 
any contract or arrangement and of any modification thereof 
or a verified summary of any unwritten contract or arrange- 
ment, the consideration of which exceeds five hundred dollars, 
hereafter entered into between a public utility and an affiliate 
providing for the furnishing of managerial, supervisory, con- 
struction, engineering, accounting, purchasing, financial or any 
other services either to or by a public utility or an affiliate 
shall be filed by the public utility with the commission within 
ten days after the date on which the contract is executed or 
the arrangement entered into. The commission may also re- 
quire a public utility to file in such form as the commission 
may require full information with respect to any purchase 
from or sale to an affiliate, whether or not made in pursuance 
of a continuing contract or arrangement. 

3. Failure to File. Any contract or arrangement not filed 
with the commission pursuant to section 2 shall be unenforce- 
able in any court in this state and payments thereunder may 
be disallowed by the commission unless the later filing thereof 
is approved in writing by the commission. 

4. Investigation and Proof. The commission shall have 
full power and authority to investigate any such contract, ar- 
rangement, purchase or sale and, if the commission after 



276 Chapter 182 [1933 

notice and hearing shall find any such contract, arrangement, 
purchase or sale to be unjust or unreasonable, the commission 
may make such reasonable order relating thereto as the public 
good requires. In any such investigation the burden shall be 
on the public utility and/or affiliate to prove the reasonable- 
ness of any such contract, arrangement, purchase or sale with, 
from or to an affiliate. If the pubhc utility shall fail to satisfy 
the commission of the reasonableness of any such contract, 
arrangement, purchase or sale the commission may disapprove 
the same and/or disallow payments thereunder or such part of 
any such payment as the commission shall find to be unjust 
or unreasonable. No payment disallowed by the commission 
shall be capitalized or included as an operating cost of the 
public utility in the fixing of rates or as an asset in fixing a 
rate base. If in any such investigation the public utility or 
affiliate shall unreasonably refuse to comply with any request 
of the commission for information with respect to relevant 
accounts and records, whether of such public utility or any 
affiliate, any portion of which may be applicable to any trans- 
action under investigation, so that such parts thereof as the 
commission may deem material may be made part of the 
record, such refusal shall justify the commission in disapprov- 
ing the transaction under investigation and/or disallowing 
payments in pursuance thereof, 

5. Summary Order in Certain Cases. If as a result of an 
investigation in accordance with the preceding section the 
commission shall find that any public utility is making any 
payment or about to make any payment or doing or about to 
do any other thing which substantially threatens or impairs 
the ability of the public utility to render adequate service at 
reasonable rates or otherwise to discharge its duty to the 
public, the commission may apply to the superior court for an 
order directing the public utility to cease making any such 
payment or doing such other thing and thereupon the court 
shall make such order as the public good may require. 

6. Disallowance of Charges Under Existing Contracts. In 
any proceeding whether upon the commission's own motion or 
upon complaint involving the rates or practices of any public 
utility, the commission may disallow the inclusion in the ac- 
counts of a public utility of any payments or compensation to 
an affiliate for any services rendered, or property furnished. 



1933] Chapter 182 277 

under existing contracts or arrangements with an affiliate 
unless such public utility shall establish the reasonableness of 
such payment or compensation. 

Reports Disclosing Interests in Public 
Utilities and Affiliates 

7. Annual Reports. Every public utility annually report- 
ing to the commission under chapter 240 of the Public Laws 
shall also annually report the name and address of, and the 
number of shares held by its officers and directors and each 
holder of one per cent or more of the voting capital stock of 
the reporting public utility, according to its records. 

8. Information Concerning Control. The commission may 
also require such other information as to the direct or indirect 
control of a public utility or affiliate from a public utility, affili- 
ate, or other person as may be reasonably required for the 
effective enforcement of this chapter. 

Procedure 

9. Rules. The commission shall have power to make such 
reasonable rules as will aid it in the administration and en- 
forcement of this act. 

10. Appeal. From any order or decision of the commission 
in the exercise of the jurisdiction and power conferred upon 
it by this chapter, an appeal shall lie to the supreme court. 
Such appeal shall be governed by the provisions of law now in 
force respecting appeals from orders of the commission and 
which are not in conflict with the provisions of this act. 

Miscellaneous Provisions 

11. Sale of Securities to or by Employees. No public 
utility shall without the approval of the commission permit 
any employee to sell, off"er for sale, or solicit the purchase of 
any security issued by an affiliate, during such hours as such 
employee is engaged to perform any duty of such public 
utility; nor shall any public utiHty by any means or device 
whatsoever require any employee to purchase or contract to

corporation; nor shall any public utility require any employee
