Wood , cashier , and LuUi < 5r Drake as- Hititunt cashier. Tlicbo o Ulcers , with John F. Coad , C. C. Hou ol and Gcorgo W. Doano , constituted the board of di rectors. This same corps of olllcors and directors arc its ollleors and directors to-day. When the bunk was organized the capital stock was fixed at $100,000 , but owing to n constant- and rapid in crease In the growth of the city and tlio banking Business of the city and county it has been doomed advisable by the directors to increase the capital stock of the itiBlitutioa until now it stands in the front rank as ono of the thrco banlcs of the state , having a paid-up capital of $500,000 and places it on an equal foot ing with the oldest bank in tlio city. During the five years and n half the bank has been doing business it has accumulated a surplus of $100,000 which is hold in addition to the paid-up capital of MOO.OOO. When the bank was first orgadlzod it was located in the building on the northwestern corner of Farnam and Thirteenth streets. About two years ago it became apparent to the directors of the institution that their apartments wore not largo cilough in which to carry on their already largo and growing business , and they began to ilrrango for the erection of their present new and clcg.vnt building which is now vir tually completed and was occupied by the banking institution last Monday for the Hrbt time. * The now building is situated on the northeast corner of .Farnani and Thir teenth Btruots. It was begun in April , I860 , and at present ovary lloOr in it is occupied. It is bovon stories high and is built of Massachusetts brown stone , St. Louis pressed brick and iron. It .is , with ono exception , the highest build ing in the city. The basement story is of brown stone , and is occupied by the Missouri 1'iicific railway company and the gas company. The remaining six btorics arc of pressed brick with brown stqno trimmings. The walls are solid masonry and do not contain a binglo stick of timber. The floors are laid on iron frames thrco feet apart anil a foot thick , between which are laid fireproof tiloafoot thick , In Hat arch position. The floors , are perfectly solid and dead 0411 ! are insured und luvvo been tested to support 2,600 pounds to the square foot , thus render ing them stroag enough to have vaults on any floor. The main entrance to the building is on Farnam street , and the banking Iloor and elevator is reached b\ra broad stone and marble stairway which leads to a wide , spacious hall. This hall is lln- isned in elegantly carved and designed antiquet oak. At the left of the main entrance is the en trance to the banking room. This room is finished in cherry and all the furniture in the room is of the same material. In the south end of tlio room are the private olliccs of the president and directors. Next to these are the desks of the cashier and his assistant. Then comes the enclosed compartments of the paying teller , the two receiving tellers , the discount and collection clerks and bookkeepers. These com partments arc largo and opposite to cacli is a window which affords the best .possible light for the clerics and book keepers to do their work by. In the north side of the booklccoping apartments are the thrco vaults , two of which are for the books. The money vault is seven foot high and 0x7 loot at the base. The bottom in of solid masonry. The walls are of railroad iron and brick , welded together and lined with steel three inches in thickness. The vault doors are of unusual weight and thick ness and are made of alternate layers of steel and iron , put together in a su perior manner and are secured by the Sargent lock. Tin ) safes and vaults were built at the works of , 'and by GUB Andreon , of this city. In the roar of these rooms are toilet , stationery and lunch for the use of the clerks in the bank. Tlio third and fourth stories of the building are occupied by the olllces of the Chicago & Northwestern Railway company and nave been specially jilted up for them. The remaining stories of the building are almost entirely occu pied by corporations of some kind , and it Ecoms now as though the entire build ing would be given up to corporation headquarters. All the rojoms in the building are finibhcd in hardwood and with the latest system of steam heating , water Bervlco and gas and cloetrje lights. The entire buildjng is constructed regard- lets of cost and for the convenience of these who may occupy it. Already six- EOvenUiB of the rooms in the building are occupied or rented , and some of the remaining ones have been spoken for. The building is a credit to the city and is also a monument of the growth and development of the business of the banking institution that built and own it.
