It has been owing to MBT this feature in the charters of the Virginia banks,that the most decided instances of their mal-administration may be traced; of their imprudent and excessive loans to individuals; and of their over-issues, when the eagerness for speculation was the strongest, and most required a check.To these objections it may be replied, that the banks of Virginia have been as prudently conducted as any other. They have, indeed, twice suspended cash payments; but it was at times when nearly all the banks in the United States had done so. They have, occasionally, lost by bad MBT Shoes debts; but so have all the other banks. Even the charge of favoring particular individuals, and persons of great popularity, has been often brought against other institutions, whose directors were chosen principally or wholly by the stockholders.All this may be very true, and yet furnish no satisfactory answer to the objections.

To prevent favoritism, therefore, and a particular party or clique from obtaining an MBT Shoes Sale exclusive control over the bank, a certain proportion of the bank directors should be changed every year.
