tion to the authorised capital of national
banks Of $50, 16,240, of which $33,632,600 were
from banks organized . since October 8L
1904, and $26,803,740 from old associations
increasing their caDitallsatlnn. The net
increase, however, was but $30,899,740, as
there was a loss of $28,436,600 as a result
uf voluntary liquidations, failures and re
ductions of capital of continuing banks.
The average capital of the 8,617 national
hanks In existence on March 14. lain wn
170,000. At the close of business on Oo
tober 81, 1906, the average capital of the
6,868 banks then tn -operation had been re
duced to $138,000, the reduction being due
lo tho organization of banks with capital
t:f less than $50,000, under authority of the
act of March 14. 1900, the latter being
organised generally with capital of $26,0uo,
altnough the exceptions raised the average
of that class of banks to approximately
wS.OOo. The average capital of the 947 banks
organised under authority of the act of
18S4, and from March 14, 1900, to October
.",1, 1906, was $120,000, making an average for
.tie 1,702 banks organized during the period
ii question of approximately $60,000.
' At the close of business on October 81,
1306, registered bonds to the amount of
v.93,912.790 were on deposit with the treas
urer of the United Slates, tn trust as se
curity for national bank circulation, of

W.215,640, fours of 19u7 to the amount of
4,030.860 and fours of 1926 to the amount of
4,466,0O0. The average market price of 2
per cent consols In November. 1904, was
101.7838. The maximum price was reached
in March, 1906, namoly, 105.1389. In October,
)90C, the average market price of these con
' sols fell to 103.4295, giving them an average
' investment value In October of 1.826.
The percentage of outstanding circula
tion to the paid-in capital of national
banks, as shown by reports of condition,
IKTlodlcally from January, 1866, to Decem
ber, 186. materially exceeded 50 and ranged
from a maximum of 70.3 at the close of 1868
to 60.6 at the close of 1S5. , From the latter
date there was a gradual decrease to 18.4
hi July, 1891. From October, 1K93, to March,
U95, the average was approximately 26 per
cent and thereafter a steady and slight In
crease to 33.8 per cent In December, 1899.
'i'ho act 'Of March 14, 1900. resulted in an
increase of the rate to 38.3 per -cent on
April 28 of that year and 47.3 at the close
of the year. With the exception of July,
1902, when the rate was 44 per cent, the
proportion of circulation to capital has ex
,vfirt 4j rmr cxnt since the date last

Growth of Banking; la lalted States.
From returns made to this office on or
about June 30. 19"2, it appears that there
were In operation 4.635 national banking
associations, with capital of $701,990,664 and
Individual deposits of $3,OM,875.772, and also
7,8v incorporated state and private banks,
with capital and deposits of $499.621, 2i8 and
$,005.847,L:14, respectively. The non-reporting
banks to the number of 3.732 bad capi
tal and deposits estimated at $138,548,664
and $478,592. ,92, respectively, or an aggre
gate of 16.156 banks and banking Institu
tions, with enpitnl of $1,340,160,416 and de
posits of J9.5M..H5.778. The first estimate
made by this office as to the number, etc.,
of non-reporting bunks, published In 1903,
was for the year Wi. From returns on or
about June 30. 1906. It Is shown that the
number of nntional banks has Increased
during the last three years to 6.668, with
capital of $791,567,231 and deposits of $3,783,
658.494. The number of state and private
banks reporting and non-reporting are now
14.242, with capital of $74, 263,149 and de
posits aggregating $8,002,662,822. The totul
number of national, state and private banks
In the United States and Island possessions
Is therefore 19,910, with aggregate capital
of $1.519.8.10.380 and individual deposits of
$11,786,321,316. The number of national banks
In activo operation has increased since 1902
by 26 per cent, and the figures presented
inoicaie mat oatiKs oiner tnan national
have Increased at the rate of about 22 per
cent during this period.
In 1903 national bank capital represented
52.4 per cent and deposits 32.3 per cent of
aggregate cpltal and deposits, respectively.
or ait reporting ran King institutions.
There was in existence In 1902. as esti
mated, one bank for every 4,897 inhabitants,
and, based on the estimate for the present
year, there Is one bank for every 4,182 In
habitants. Stock of Money of the World.
Under direction of the director c.f the
mint there has been recently compiled a
statement based on the latest Information
obtained relating to the monetary systems
and approximate stock of money lr the
principal counties of the world at the close
of the year 1904. The summary relates to
forty-seven countries, In all of which gold
Is the monetary standard, with the excep
tion of the Straits Settlement, Bolivia, and
the Central American states.
The aggregate stock of gold, silver, and
Uncovered paper currency is reported as
amounting to $12,6'0.oon.OOO, classified as fol
lows: Gold, $."., 987, 100.000; silver. $3,130,400,000;
uncovered paper currency. $3,392,500,000. The
gold represents 48 per cent of the stock,
and the silver and uncovered paper cur
rency 25 and 27 per cent, respectively.
Comparing this statement with that relat
ing to the stock of money at the-close of
1903. it appears that the holdings of gold
have Increased to the extent of VUi8.M0.000,
but that sliver and uncovered paper cur
rency have decreased $71,000,000 and $01,000,
000, respectively, the net Increase In the
stock of money being $196,900,000. The

tates and Is stated as amounting to
$1,348,200,000. France is second in the list,
with a stock of $926,400,000; followed by

United Kingdom, $533,200,000; Austria-Hungary,
3.105.0W.00O: India. $263,900,000; Italy.
$131,400,0110; and Australasia, $128,600,000. The
tcading countries with their stock of sllvar
are as follows: United States, $685,100,000;
India. $603,800,000; France. $411,100,000; China.
$350,000,000; Germany. $210,200,000; Spain.
ws.iw.uuo; united Kingdom, 113,400,0.
Russia, $101,900,000. With the exception of
Colombia, which has $741,000,000, the United
8tates leads the principal countries of the
world with a stock of uncovered paper
currency of $539,900,000, followed by Brazil
with $368,100,000. the next in the list being
Argentina, $286,100,000. Germany's stock of
uncovered paper currency Is $169,800,000, and
that of Italy $160,700,000. The amount of
this kind of currency in Spain s $125,100,000,
the next In the list being the United King
dom with $118,100,000; Belgium, $111,900,000;
France. $110,900,000. and Japan. $101,200,000.
The greatest per capita stock of money
is held In France, namely, $37.13, followed
by the United States with $31.41: Germany,
$22.46; Spain, $19.83; United Kingdom, $17.58;
Italy, $9.26; Austria-Hungary, $9.04, and
Russia, $6.90.
The countries reported have an argregate
population of 1,298,600,000 and on average
per capita holding of money of $9.63.
Money In the I'nlted States.
"At the close of the fiscal year ended June
SO, 1906, the stock of money in the United
States amount d to $2,883,109,864, of which
$2,031,296,042 was in coin. Including bullion
In the treasury, and $851,813,822 United
States and national bank notes. The coin,
bullion and paper currency In the treasury
as assets amounted to $295,227,211, the re
mainder, $2,687,882.6.-10, being in circulation.
The estimated population of the country
on this date was 83,260,000, giving an average
circulation per capita of $31.08. The amount
of money held by national and other re
porting banks at date of reports nearest
to June 30. 1906. was $987,800,000, which leaves
$1,600,100,000 outside of the treasury and the
reporting banks. Stated In percentages the
money In the treasury represents 10.24 per
cent of the stock; In reporting banks, 34.27
per cent, and elsewhere, 65.49 per cent.
The per capita unaccounted for appears to
be $19.22.
Dank Examination and Supervision.
After a careful study of the cases which
have come under my observation during the
lust four years, I am firmly convinced that
no system of bank examination or super
vision from the outsido of the bank can ab
solutely prevent fraudulent bank failures.
The more thorough and efficient the super
vision the more surely and quickly frauds
will be discovered, and the more fear of
detection will tend to prevent them, but
they cannot be surely and In every case
prevented by any practical means outside
of the bank.
I am also equally convinced by the same
experience thut with careful and efficient
work on the part of the examiner, aided by
Intelligent and thorough letters of criticism
based on the examiners' reports, any board
of bank directors of fair intelligence with
an honesty desire to obey the law can, by
co-operating with the examiner and the
comptroller, make the failure of their bank
practically if not absolutely Impossible.
No outside supervision can supply honesty
or brains for the management of a bank or
take the place of either when it is lacking.
The best it can do is to discover acta of
dishonesty or bod errors of judgment after
they have occurred, and to some extent
prevent illegal acts by fear of their dis
covery and punishment.

Book Island Propoiei to Build Line to
Jetter Brewery.
la Making Exteastoa Company Will
Have te Get Right to
Cross Streets from
More railroad building Is in prospect for
South Omaha. A few days ego mention
was made In The Bee of the possibility of
the Rock Wand road running- track up the
hollow to the Jetter brewery. Yesterday
Superintendent Wilson of the Rock Island,
with headquarters at Falrbury, and John E.
Utt, general western agent, visited the city
and looked over the ground. Several South
Omaha business men and a few members of
the city council were with these railroad
representatives during the greater part of
the afternoon. Several lines were gone over,
but no decision as to the route was reached.
It Is probable the Rock Island stub, which
now stops near the southwest line of the
Swift plant, will be extended up the hollow
across acre property to the brewery. Tn
making this extension It will be necessary
for the city council to give the Rock Island
permission to cross Twenty-seventh street
and also Thirtieth street. The balance of
the streets south of Swlft'e are not opened,
bo that only the permission of the owners
of acre property would be necessary. As
John J. Ryan and Balthas fetter own a
large portion of the tract it will not be a
hard matter to secure from them the right-of-way.
It is understood that by making the ex
tension mentioned the iRock Island would
not In any way Interfere with the proposed
viaduct of the Union Pacific, which is to ex
tend from Twenty-fourth and U streets to
Twenty-seventh and T streets.
May Have Another Inspector.
Members of the South Omaha L4ve Stock
exchange and others doing business at the
stock yards are pleased at the prospect of
an additional Inspector being appointed for
this place.
"The appointment. If one is made," said
an official of the exchange last night, "will
be in the nature of a representative of
Secretary Wilson and not what might be
called officially an Inspector. Such an offi
cial here would have authority to decide
questions for the department which are now
too weighty for the chief Inspector and have
to be forwarded to .Washington fox ft de
cision. By the locating of such an official
here a great deal of time would be saved
and add greatly to the Importance of this
market. Chicago has such an official and
South Omaha certainly needs one as much
as that city. We are in hopes that thN
secretary of agriculture will make this ap
pointment soon." '

Payer Doing; Nicely,
Thursday the pavers on Twenty-fourth
street made quite a showing.' A half block
of paving between I and J streets was put
down and a half block of concrete base be
tween J and K streets was laid. Contractor
Jim Parks said last night that with three
or four days more of good weather he
would have the paving laid to Missouri
avenue. Yesterday workmen in the employ
of the street car company nearly com
pleted the raising of tho tracks between K
and Missouri avenue to grade. The con
crete mixer was in operation all day. No
more of the east side of the street is to be
torn up until the pavement Is laid to Mis.
sour! avenue. By taking up the stone foot
ings on the outside of the street car tracks
and putting down brick a good connection
between the tracks and the pavement
proper Is made. This is not only an im
provement in looks, but makes the pave
ment more durable.
Western Ranee Cattle,
C. Lv, Talbot, chief brand inspector at the
stock yards, is figuring on his report for
the year. Last evening Mr. Talbot said
"At the present time I cannot tell Just how
many head of range cattle were received
at South Omaha. I am busy working on
my reports now, as I am anxious to get
away to Cheyenne to report to the direct
ore of the brand associations. The range
season is practically over and by the mid
dle of the month I think that I will be
able to give out some Information regard
ing the conditions existing on the range
this year and the number of head of cattle
sent to South Omaha."

Boyles College Defeated In Opening:
Contest of Basket Ball Season.
Boyles college and the Omaha High school
opened the basket ball season last night
with a game In the Boyles gymnasium.
The high school won by a score of 47 to
17. The college team gave its opponents a
hard rub during the first half, first one
throwing goal and then the other, the half
closing 16 to 13 In favor of the high school.
In the second half the high school became
more accustomed to the floor and the con
test was a walkaway. In this half the high
school - team made 81 points to its oppo
nents' 4.
Rasmussen, with five goals, proved the
best sroremaker for the Boyles. Flothow
made three goals. Rasmussen and Web
ster were evenly matched at center. Hall
and Clark for the high school did brilliant
work, the former tossing ten goals and the
latter nine. Webster threw four goals.
Thomaa played one forward position for
the high school, while Paxton and Burnett
alternated at the other. Both of the latter
are new players, and considering their lim
ited experience they, showed up well.
The easiness of the game waa a surprise
to the high school players. They had
beaten Boyles S3 to 13 In a practice game at
tho Young Men's Christian association. but
they expected the college boys to do much
better on their own floor. The lineup:
Hull F.lF RothichMd
Clark F.lF. Flothow
Wtbster C. Ic Rlimumn
Thomas O.IO Joy
Putos, Burnett O.ld Powell
