Omaha has always t.iken trreat iirlde in
the soundness and strength of Its bunking
Institutions , as \ \ ell as In the Immense limit-
iiusscunteri'il hero and transacted by them.
Slnct ! the da.vs nt "wild-cat ' currency , the
hanks of width tlmu vele speedily ami
thoroiiKhly extiTinlnated liy tlie panic of
1K > 7 , there has ot been a single insuince
ot tiank tallure In Omaha. Tht-rearenow
oruunlzed and I'.olm. ' busini-s in this
city and In South ilmahu twenty-one
one strong llnanclal Institution- this
number nine are national banks two state
Kink- , four prlvuU- banks , two savings
banks and four loan and trust companies
The year just clo-ed has been a remark
able onu In sumo respects , 'linemuR -
nlllcent edifices I'mhanking piniio-e h-ivo
been ercctttlhlih , with the twu pie-
vlonsly lii lit , make live as elewint struc
tures as t-.ui te , fmintl In anv city of
theM"t. . The b.illdlims rel'erretl to
are those of the Nebiaska Nutloi al , on thu
northwest coiner of Twelfth and 1'arnam
streets ; the- Omaha National , on thu west
side of Thlrtcenih between I'arnam and
Douglas ; thu Knifed States National. on
the southwest corner of Twelfth and I'ar-
mini : tlio Hirst National , on the southeast
corner of Thirteenth and Farnam , and thu
MeiThiints' National , o-i the northeast cor-
nerof Thirteenth and I'arnam. Tne hi-t
three namei' were elected la-t year , anil
the cost of Hum was us follows : first
National , ftfMiili ( , : Merchants1 National ,
ilTli.imi ; Knitett States National , if I.Mi.niKI.
Another notubl- event ot the year has
been the .selection of ( iniiihn as a national
re-erve t > lty. In accordance with an act ol
congress passed last winter. Prior to this ,
tht ) re-ervo cities , tmtshle of New York
( the one central reserve city i , were Phila
delphia , llo-ton , llaltiinore. Chicago. Cin
cinnati , Nuvv Ol leans. St. Louis , San Fran
cisco , 1'lttshurg. Milwaukee , Cleveland ,
Detroit and I.oulsvlle. Kndcr the new law
Omaha ami Kansas City have been math
reseive cities like New York. ThecHcel
of this Important change. Is that banks li
other than reserve cities can counl
balances dun them by banks In Omalui
as a portion of Hi.- lawful res , rve the.v
are reijuired to have on hand. 'I'he iismi !
reserve required is l" > per ci nt of depo-ll
liabilities , tliree-llf tils ofvh ch may be h :
oalanco In r erve city banks. There
inalnliiK two tilths or ii p.-r cent must be In
lawful money or specie on hand. naUona
bank notes not i minting as such.
A re-erve city bank is reimlreil to holt'
tf.'iper cent on hand , one-halt of which nuij
consist of balances dim from central it-
serve banks and the remaining one-half 1/1
Itf'i percent must bo kept on hand In speclt
antUawfnl money. It wilt thus bo seer
that the re-er e o { money reiiilred | to hi
tin hand Is more than doubled for iv-ervc
cities anil It will be interesting to note how
well the Omaha banks have met the new
requirements.
The total deposits of theOmnli i national
banks i according to the October statement- '
were tl l,7-til : > ' II j I'.lpcr cent revervu required

held by the banks , it.'l.'ini.tit ; amount ot

Another Intesestlng statement slowing
thu condition of the national banks In tin
city Is contained In the following table ol
