Following is the second of the weekly statements issued by the Federal Re­
serve Board designed to show more accurately than heretofore the volume of the
nation’ s banking business. The statement comprises returns of total amounts of
debits to deposit accounts of clearing house banks in about 125 cities. Trans­
actions during the two weekly periods ending Jfedhesday, August 21 and August 28
are given. A recapitulation is added in which totals are given by Federal Reserve
districts of returns made by cities reporting both weeks. The figures in the re­
capitulation are fairly ccirparable, though as the result of efforts of both the
Clearing House managers and the Federal Reserve barks, rare nearly complete re­
turns for the several clearing house centers have been received this week than the
week before.
Figures by Federal Reserve districts are as follows (in thousands of dollars,
i . e . , 000' s omitted):
