If the superintendent shall be satisfied from his investigation that the character and general fitness of the persons named as stockholders and executive officers are such as to command the confidence of the community in which such bank is proposed to be located and that there is sufficient business to support said bank in said community and that the convenience and needs of said community shall be served, he shall pass upon the sufficiency of the certificate of incorporation; and, if he approves the certificate he shall issue under his hand and official seal a certificate authorizing the proper official or officials to file the certificate of incorporation upon proof of payment of subscription to the capital subscribed for as required by law.
