26-1018. Payment of claims. Claims presented to the director prior to the expiration of the time fixed in the notice to creditors therefor, and allowed by him, shall be paid in the order of priority hereinafter fixed. Those filed after such expiration and prior to one (1) year thereafter shall be entitled, after they have been allowed by the director, to share in the distribution of the assets of the bank only to the extent of the assets undistributed in the hands of the director and available for the payment of claims of their order of priority at the time such claims are filed, but as against other claims of their same order of priority, on which dividends have been paid, they shall be entitled to payment in a proportionate amount before further payments are made on such other claims. All claims filed after the expiration of one (1) year following the date fixed in the notice to creditors as the time for presentation of claims are not entitled to be allowed or paid unless all other creditors’ claims of any kind or character, except claims of shareholders, based on stock or assessments paid on stock, shall have been fully paid and discharged, and a surplus remains in the hands of the director, and then only from such surplus.
