rhe Controller of the Currency Avoid

&HIS SCHEME FOR MTIONAL BOTES
ToAdd 15,000,000 to the Circulation and
- Eemote a Big Tax.
FACTS ALL PIKAKCIEES WILL BEAD
Expansion of our national bank circula
tion is the chief aim expressed by the Con
troller of the Currency in his Jorthcominjj
report The methods he suggests to brine it
about, ihe flaws in the present national bank
laws, and many new and interesting com
parisons lead up to his deductions.
"Washikgton-, November 25. The
forthcoming report of Controller of the Cur
rency Lacey covers the year ended October
31, 18S9, at which time there were in exist-,
ence 3,319 national banks, the largest num
ber in operation since the inauguration of
the system. These associations possess an
aegregate capital of $620,174,365. The
last reports ot condition exhibit
their resources and liablities on
September 30, 18S9. The number re
porting at that time was 3,290. A summary
of these reports shows: Capital, 5612,584,-
095; surplus, $197,394,761; undivided profits,
$51,866,869; cross deposits, including amounts
due banks. 11.950.935,161; loans and discounts,
11,805,729,739. all of which items show an in
crease over any previous date.
The amount of circulation outstanding was
5203,662,732, of which 5131.SS3.33t was secured
by ttaited States bonds, and the remainder,
$72,279,396, was represented by deposit of law
ful money In the Treasury; These banks held
S91.972.900 in United States bonds, of which
SU6.471.700 were to secure circulating notes
(fl6i,326.9 of specie and $56,752,593 of legal
A THIED OF ALL THE CAPITAL.
Within the year 211 banks were organized,
Wring an accregate capital of 211,2111,000.
These banks deposited with the Treasurer, to
secure circulation. 54.S78.fS0 in United States
bonds, upon which were issued 53,812.975 in cir
culating no es. Thirty-six of the new banks
were organized in Texas, the largest number in
any one State. The State of Pennsylvania has
now the largest number of associations in ope
ration; Massachusetts leads in point of capital
stock, and Kew York in point of deposits and
volume of business.
The large number of new banks entering the
system, and their wide distribution, is an evi
dence, the Controller says, that the system is
adapted to the varied conditions existing with
in the extreme limits of the national domain.
Within the year 41 banks went into voluntary
liquidation; only 2 failed; leaving the net addi
tions to the system 1GS, as against 90 last year
and 123 the annual averago increase since the
inauguration of the system Notwithstanding
this increase, says the Controller, the system
lias not kept pace with the needs of the people
for increased banking facilities.
IT doess't pay so well.
This growing tendency to incorporate under
the statutes of the several States is cot at
tributable to any change in the law affecting
either national or State institutions; but is
charged directly to the fact, says the Con
troller, that no profit results to the banks by
reason of the deposit of bonds and issue of cir
culating notes. It is claimed in fact, he says,
that an actual loss results in many Western
States and Territories, where the interest is
highest and banking facilities most needed. It
is deemed certain by the Controller that with
drawal of bonds held in excess of the minimum
requirements will continue so long as the
present conditions exist, and it is asserted that
legislation is necessary to prevent a con
traction of the volume of national bank cur
In the opinion of the Controller the laws gov
erning national banks should be so amended as
to produce the following modifications:
First The minimum deposit of bonds to secure
circulation should be fixed at 10 per centum of
capital In respect to associations liavlnp a capital
or 300,000 or less, and l'or all .banks baring a
crealer capital a minimum deposit of S3tJLUjun
onassiiouia oe required.
tseeoDfl drrnlatlon should be Issued to the par
raineof the bonds deposited.
Third -beml-annuaf cfmy on circulation slionld
be so reduced as to eqnal one-fourth on per cent
perannnm. It Is held that these changes in the
lar would do little wore than save the national
banks from loss on account of circulation If the
present premium on United States bonds Is main
tained. THE MINIMUM DEDUCTION.
Taking as a basis of computation the capital
stock as it appears in the summary of reports
for September 30. 1SS9, the present minimum of
deposit of bonds is found to be 95,297,283. If
the law is amended as proposed, the minimum
of bond deposit required will be reduced to
543,89181, making possible a withdrawal of
S5M05.7C2 in bonds, upon which is based 516,
265,132 in circulating notes. It is asserted that
this would greatly exceed the limit of probable
contraction, it being fair to presume, says the
Controller, that the banks now maintaining a
deposit In excess of lecal requirements would
not withdraw the bonds thus released. Upon a
careful survey of the entire field. It Is the
opinion of the Controller that the proposed
legislation, taken as a whole, would tend to ar
rest the present contraction rather than accel
erate It, for the following reasons :
"WHY IT WOULD OPERATE.
First The present excess now held at a loss trill
probably Increase lra profit Is apparent.
.Second The banks now holdlnjr an excess win
not avail themselves or the privilege of with
drawal conferred by the reduction of the mini
mum. Third-The organization of new banks will be
nearly or quite doubled, and the deposit or bonds
received from this source will be maintained, even
under the reduced requirements.
Fourth-The withdrawal of bond by reason of
banks coins; Into voluntary liquidation will be
Fifth-The addition of 10 per cent In circulation
will apply to all bonds now on deposit, as well as
those which may hereafter be pledged, and would
"" nearly loo(00 to the cireulatlou upon
The operation of these various influences, the
Controller says, wouldtend to prevent any con
siderable reduction in the amount of bonds
lield to secure circulation, while the Increased
percentage ofnew issues would operate to neu
tralize the effect of any possible withdrawal,
and might inflate rather than contract the
total volume of national bank cinmlation. In
any event the provisions of section 9 of the act
" " ""s " aj,wiii sun De in operation,
limiting the deposit of lawful money or wltS
drawal of bonds to 53,000,000 during any calen
dar month, which would limit possible con
traction to 536,000,000, which is less than the
gross decrease of circulation daring the rear
A BAD TAX OIT CIKCULATIOir.
The reduction of the duty on circulation is
commended, upon the ground that the present
tax is unjust to the banks, because It is im
posed on account of a privilege now valueless,
and the revenues of the Government aro in ex
cess of Its requirements. This semi-annual
duty during the last fiscal year amounted to
51,410.331. and the total amount paid in Federal
taxes to June 30, 1889, by the system, on capital,
deposits and circulation, is stated at S1S7 664.
135 67. The reduced rate of duty would pro
duce a sum In excess of the expenditures made
by the General Government on account of the
In submitting this recommendation, the Con
troller states, that lie has been largely influ
enced by the increased accessions to the sys
tem from Western and Southern States, and
the evidence daily accumulating that it is not
only adapted to the wants or that vast area now
inadequately supplied wjth banking facilities,
but that its adaptation has become more fully
appreciated, it belnc of the greatest import
ance to those regions that the abundant capital
of the older States be utilized, and through no
other agency can it be so well accomplished.
The gam accruing to the Government bv rea
son of national bank noteslost and nnrprtosTnsH
is estimated at not more than 1 per cent, nor
less than one-balf of I per cent ot the local
Issue. This is based upon the amount now
outstanding of circulation Issued to groups of
basks which have been closed by reason of in
solvency for ten or more years.
WHAT HE HAS AVOIDED.
The Controller says be has avoided the dis
cussion of the various plans which have been
suggested for substituting other securities for
United States bonds as a basis of circulation,
and that he has confined himsell to the
presentation of such changes In the law as will
be generally accepted as practicable, and which
will be most likely to receive favorable con
sideration by Congress. He is of the opinion
that the consideration of propositions
lootinc to the adoption of untried
measures would Involve a delay fraught with
danger to the national banking system in Its
present exigency. In his opinion the adoption
of the amendments proposed will afford the
relief now necessary, and give an opportunity
for proper deliberation before adopting more
radical measures. He does not recommend
any issue of long date bonds, which would de
fer the payment of the present issues as they
mature, but does favor a reduction of Interest
upoh existing bonds to 2$ per cent by the pre
payment to holders of the difference between
that rate of, Interest and the future per cent
Interest which the bonds now carry.
