EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT OF
FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF CLEVELAND
RESULTS OF OPERATION

T h a t still further progress in the readjustment of banking and
business to meet the change in economic conditions had been made
in 1922 is evidenced by figures covering the operations of the
Discount Department of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland
for t h a t period. An additional reflection of this accomplishment
may also be found in the condition of member banks in this
District, to which reference is made elsewhere in this report.
Loans and discounts to member banks were more than 50 per
cent less than in 1921, although the number of approved applications was 25 per cent less. The number of borrowing banks
increased from 509 in 1921 to 540 in 1922. It is interesting to
note t h a t all of our 105 state bank members were borrowing at
some time in the year.
All classes of rediscounts show smaller totals than in 1921, the
percentual decline being least in agricultural and live-stock paper.
During the year 1922 no paper of other Federal Reserve banks
was rediscounted at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.
Daily average earning assets were $120,473,495, compared
with an average of $171,675,075 in 1921, a decline of about 30
per cent. The average rate of earnings in 1922 was 4.099 per
cent, compared with 5.395 per cent the preceding year.
Net earnings for the year amounted to $2,533,016.02. Of this
sum dividends paid to stockholding member banks amounted to
$692,436.27; reserves for depreciation, etc., totaled $264,327.96;
the surplus fund was enlarged in the sum of $861,263.90, and the
balance, $714,987.89, was transferred to the Government as
franchise tax in accordance with the provisions of the Federal
Reserve Act.
Schedules 4 to 15 cover in detail operations of the Discount
I )PT"}?1 r*t"TTlPT"lt"

MOVEMENT OF MEMBERSHIP

Three state banks, having total resources at time of admission
of $13,597,412, were admitted to membership during the year
1922.
Four national banks were admitted during the period under
review, three being newly organized banks, while the fourth
was organized to succeed an institution whose charter had expired.
Nine national banks liquidated in the Fourth Federal Reserve
District, seven being merged with other institutions, one surrendering its national charter to operate as a state bank, and the
other being succeeded by a new organization.




7

One small state bank withdrew from membership in the System.
The net result was a loss for the year of three banks, the
number of members at the end of the year being 881. The total
paid-in capital of the bank on December 31, 1922, was $11,708,050.
The changes in membership throughout the year are given in
detail in Schedules 16 and 17.
RELATIONS WITH MEMBER BANKS

A cordial and friendly relation with our member banks has been
increased and extended by frequent personal contacts through
the department of bank relations. During the past year 1,680
calls were made upon members, and 86 upon non-members on
matters of interest. Eighteen group meetings and four state
conventions were also attended by representatives of this department.
BANK EXAMINATIONS

The Examination Department of the Federal Reserve Bank of
Cleveland has continued to act in complete harmony with the
various state banking departments and the office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
There has been no change in the staff of this department, except
t h a t one assistant examiner has been commissioned as an
examiner.
Eighty-six examinations of member banks were conducted
during the year, the total resources of these banks at time of
examination being in excess of one billion dollars. Three examinations of state banks were made in connection with applications for membership in the System.
In Schedule 18 may be found a detailed statement of the various
examinations conducted during the year.
FEDERAL RESERVE NOTES

There has been a marked contrast in the movement and circulation of Federal Reserve Notes as compared with the year 1921.
Reported circulation as of December 31,1921, stood at $214,775,185
and a sharp decline in amount followed until February 4, when
the low point of the year, $191,130,100, was reached. The
movement for the balance of the year was slightly upward, with
a sharp upturn in December.
During the current year the Federal Reserve Agent received
$175,300,000 from the Comptroller of the Currency and there was
issued and reissued to the bank $191,045,000. The Federal
Reserve Agent redeemed $11,785,000 during the year and there
was $144,224,150 returned to the Treasurer of the United States
for redemption and delivery to the Comptroller for destruction.
The record of interdistrict movement of notes indicates that
$85,807,345 in fit and unfit notes was returned to the bank for
use or to Washington for redemption by other Federal Reserve
banks, while $75,243,500 in fit and unfit notes issued by other
banks was returned to them or to Washington for redemption;




8

the bulk of these operations in each direction affecting the Federal
Reserve Banks of New York and Chicago.
Except for a sharp rise in the amount of notes issued in December, the outstanding feature of circulation has been the complete
freedom from any spectacular rise or fall. The balance outstanding as of December 31, 1922 ($274,900,550), while a little higher
than a year ago, may be said to reflect an unusual demand for
currency for seasonal buying and a decline in this figure may
be expected during the early months of 1923.
FEDERAL RESERVE BANK NOTES
The necessity for bank note circulation in the small denominations (l's—2's—5's) has passed, by reason of the introduction of
United States issues in larger volume during the year.
The
reverse operation of the Pittman Act (buying silver and coining dollars) has provided a basis for enlarged issues of silver
certificates, and a larger portion of the fixed amount of Legal
Tender Notes is now issued in smaller denominations.
A year ago the liability of this bank for Federal Reserve Bank
notes outstanding stood at $5,843,000, secured by deposit with
the Treasurer of the United States of $8,040,000 special Certificates of Indebtedness. During the year all of these certificates
have been redeemed by the Treasury Department, which has
assumed liability for the negligible amount of these notes still
outstanding on December 31.
OPERATIONS OF BRANCHES
There has been no change in the scope of the functions of the
branches at Cincinnati and Pittsburgh, both of which have continued to render full and complete service in the respective
territories allotted to them.
NEW BANK BUILDING
During the past year work on our new building has progressed
quite satisfactorily considering the many strikes and labor
difficulties t h a t have arisen. It is estimated at this time t h a t the
building will be ready for occupancy on or about May 1, 1923.
As a result of the bank operating in one building instead of six,
as at present, and with the splendid working quarters and strong
vaults t h a t have been installed, member banks may be assured of
additional and better service than we are now able to render
because of our congested working quarters and inadequate vault
facilities.
CLEARING AND CHECK COLLECTION DEPARTMENT
The number of checks handled by the Federal Reserve Bank of
Cleveland during the year 1922 exceeds by more than nine
million the number handled in any previous year, although the
amount involved is considerably less than that of 1920. This
phenomenon is probably explained by the difference in the prices
of commodities, a reduction in the volume of income tax payments, and a smaller volume of dealings in government securities.




Q

During the year 1922 a total of 57,292,868 items was handled,
of which 53,251,136 were payable in this District, 1,840,571 were
forwarded to other Federal Reserve banks and their branches,
(including items forwarded direct to drawee banks in other
districts), and 2,201,161 were drawn on the Treasurer of the
United States. The daily average number of items handled
throughout the year was 189,267.
On October 16 a new high record was established when this
bank and its branches handled 333,372 items.
Schedule 23 gives in detail the operations of this department.
COLLECTION DEPARTMENT

The year 1922 was another of increased activity in the Collection Department. The volume of items handled showed an
average monthly increase of 22 per cent over 1921. Items were
handled in the amount of $405,362,426.39, consisting of 349,551
actual collections.
In accordance with recent recommendations, the Federal
Reserve Bank of Cleveland has authorized its member banks to
forward their non-cash items direct to the Federal Reserve
banks of districts in which they are payable. So far, however,
only about 10 per cent of our member banks have availed themselves of this privilege, and these banks for the most part have
confined their operations to sending direct only such items as
are payable in cities in which Federal Reserve banks or branches
are located.
Ninety and seven-tenths per cent of collection items handled
originated in this District. Twenty-three and eight-tenths per
cent of all collections handled were local collections—i. e., payable
in the cities of Cleveland, Cincinnati, or Pittsburgh.
The percentage of collections returned unpaid during 1922 was
1.06 per cent less than in 1921. Approximately 85 per cent
of the total number handled were paid, with 14 per cent unpaid, about 72 per cent being paid without deduction.
FISCAL AGENCY OPERATIONS

The great increase in the volume of work handled by the
Fiscal Agency department during the last two months of the year
was occasioned by the redemption of the called Victory Notes and
the 1918 series of War-Savings Stamps. Figures showing the
number and amount of War-Savings Stamps received during
November and December for exchange or redemption as of
January 1, 1923, are not included in the totals for the year but
are given separately in Schedule 29. Schedule 30 gives in detail
the redemption of the called Victory Notes.
Thirteen issues of United States securities were offered for
subscription during the year. The total subscriptions to these
issues amounted to $717,842,300, which was nearly 100 per cent
in excess of the amount allotted, $373,921,700.




10

There was a marked decline during the year in the number
and amount of conversions as well as in the number and amount
of all classes of exchanges. There was a marked increase, however, in the amount of Treasury Savings Securities issued. The
redemption of Government coupons remained on about the same
level as last year.
Detailed statements of the operation of the various Fiscal
Agency departments appear in Schedules 27 to 34.
PERSONNEL

There has been no change in the directorate of this bank since
our last report. In the 1922 election Messrs. Chess Lamberton
(Class A) and R. P. Wright (Class B) were reelected.
But one change occurred in the directorates at our branches,
Mr. T. J. Davis succeeding Mr. W. S. Rowe as a director at the
Cincinnati Branch. Mr. Rowe was not a candidate for reappointment.
There have been no changes in the official staff.
During the first eleven months of the year there had been
a steady reduction in force, until on December 1 there were
about 50 less people on our payroll than at the first of the year.
During the month of December, by reason of the tremendous
amount of work incident to the redemption of called Victory
Notes and 1918 series of War-Savings Stamps, it was necessary
to make substantial temporary additions to the force until these
operations are disposed of.
A comparative statement of the number of bank employees on
December 31, 1921, and December 31, 1922, is appended as
Schedule 35.
GENERAL BUSINESS AND FINANCIAL CONDITIONS

While the value of earning assets held by the Federal Reserve
Bank of Cleveland at the close of the year shows but a small
loss from the amount held at the close of the previous year,
there is a distinct change in the character of assets held. Bills
discounted have declined from approximately 115 million to 38
million. Bills purchased have increased from 5 million to 51
million, and holdings of government securities (other than Treasury certificates to secure bank note circulation) have increased
from 53^2 to nearly 26 million.
The year has been marked by a plentiful supply of money and
credit, relatively low interest rates, and substantial increases both
in demand and time deposits in member banks. On the basis of
figures furnished by 84 reporting member banks in this District,
loans and discounts have increased 9.8 per cent and deposits
have increased 19.4 per cent.
The year closed with interest rates firm and plenty of credit
available for legitimate business.




11

The revival in commercial and industrial activity which was
noticeable in the early months of the year gained momentum
as the year progressed, and by the end of December a quite substantial recovery had been effected.
In some lines of industry new production records were established. This is true especially of the automobile and rubber tire
industries. The iron and steel industry is continuing to expand
and is working in this District from 75 to 85 per cent of normal
capacity. Coal production, which was curtailed sharply as a
result of the coal strike and later affected to a greater or less
degree by the strike of the railway shopmen, has been resumed
vigorously, and while stocks generally, either in the hands of the
dealers or the public, are not as large as usual at this time of
year, the fuel shortage is more apparent than real.
Mercantile concerns generally report a satisfactory volume of
business, with heavy holiday buying. While there is no evidence
of the extravagant purchasing of 1919, there is a noticeable
demand for the better grades of goods.
Agricultural yields for the most part were up to average, and
the rather sharp advance in the price of farm products during the
past few months has resulted in a considerable increase in the
purchasing power of the farmer.
