STATEMENT FOR THE PRESS.
April 1, 1916 *

The Federal Reserve Board made public today its weekly bank
statement as at close of business on March J>1, 1916 - The state­
ment indicates decreases of 6<9 millions in the combined gold re­
serves and of 9*1 millions in the total cash reserves of the banks,
largely the result of substantial net withdrawals of bank deposits
from the Boston and New York banks.
Chicago reports a decrease of
over 1 million in its total reserve accompanied by increases of 3*2
millions in the amount due from other Federal reserve banks, and of
2.1 millions in total deposits.
The Cleveland bank reports a de­
crease of 1*3 millions in deposits*
Its reserve shows but a slight
decrease, while the amount of its investments decreased almost 1
million dollars during the week.
There is but little change shown in the amount of rediscounts
on hand, the banks more active in the rediscount business reporting
about the same amounts of discounts held as the week before. Bills
bought show an increase of about 1-2 millions, New York alone re­
porting an increase of about 0-5 million under this head.
Over
30 per cent of the paper on hand matures within 30 days, and almost
35 per cent after
but within 60 days.
The holdings of United
States bonds show but little change, as the $9^000,000 limitation
upon the amount of bonds securing National Bank currency, which
National banks might withdraw during any one month, was reached on
March 16, and prevented further release of bonds through deposits
with the Treasurer of the United States. The aggregate of municipal
warrants increased less than 0 .4 million, though the New York bank’s
holdings of this class of securities show a gain of over 1.6 millions.
Of the total earning assets of about 135 millions, acceptances
constitute at present the largest share, v iz ., 29-9 Per cent., followed
closely by United States bonds, 29<8 per cent, while warrants are
24 .5 per cent, and rediscounts 15*8 per cent of the total* The
ratio of total earning assets to paid-in capital has increased to
246 per cent from 152 per cent, shown at the beginning of the year.
Government deposits show an increase during the week of 3 *^ millions.
Bank deposits declined 8.8 millions, net withdrawals being largest
in Boston and New York where cash requirements for quarterly pay­
ments are heaviest.
The amount of Federal reserve bank notes in circulation,
$964,000, shows a decrease for the week of almost 100 thousand
dollars.
Federal Reserve Agents report a total of I 9O .2 millions
net of Federal reserve notes outstanding, or about 0*7 million less
than the week before.
Against this total they hold 179*3 millions
in gold and 11.2 millions of paper. The banks 5 outstanding circula­
tion is given as 163 millions, with net liabilities thereon of 8.9
million dollars.

STATEMENT ,'FOR THE PRESS *
April 8, 1916*

The Federal Reserve Board made public today its regular weekly
/bank statement as at close of business on April 7, 3.916. The statement
indicates considerable activity of the banks in the open market during
the past week,trgsurting in an increase by about 11,8 millions in the
/
total amount of^/banks 1 earning assets. Among these assets are shown^/^
$1,932,000 of United States Treasury notes issued in exchange fojr^2per
cent bonds previously acquired by the Federal reserve banks .^"These notes
bear interest at the rate of 3 per cent per annum and are payable one year
after date of issue. The combined gold reserves of the banks decreased
during the week 7*9 millions, while the banks* aggregate casjh reserves
declined about 6.2 millions. Considerable net withdrawals of gold are
reported by the Boston, Atlanta, Chicago and Dallas banks.
The decrease in Boston*s gold reserve by about 1*5 millions
is practically offset by an increase in the total due from other Federal
reserve banks. As against a reduction of 1*5 millions in its gold holdings,
Atlanta reports the purchase of over one-half million of United States
bonds and the deposit with the Agent of 1 million dollars to enable it to
withdraw maturing paper, The increase by 1,7 millions in the amount of
United States bonds on hand more than accounts for the loss of 1.1 millions
of Chicago’ s gold reserve^ while the purchase of about 1*5 millions of
United States bonds fully offsets the decrease of 1*3 millions in Dallas1
gold reserve,
A renewal of discount activity after a period of comparative
inaction is shown for the Chicago and Dallas banks.
The aggregate^discounted paper held by the banks indicates for the first time during the
present year an increase over the figures shown for the preceding week*
Acceptances on hand show an increase of 1.7. millions, the New York and
Philadelphia banks reporting the largest gains under*this head. Of the
total holdings of this class of paper the three banks on the Eastern
seaboard are credited with over 80 per cent. Of the total amount of paper
on hand 31,7 per cent matures within 30 days and 34,1 per cent after 30
but within 60 days.
The week witnessed the purchase by 7 banks of nearly
5 millions of United States bonds, also an increase of 2#2 millions in
the holdings of municipal warrants, Cleveland reporting the purchase of
about 2 millions of notes issued by Ohio municipalities*




-2

-605-

Of the total earning assets of 146.8 millions, bonds c ilo *
stitute at present 30.3 per cent, acceptances — 28.7 per cen^^waj. rants - 24.0 per cent; discounts - 15,2 per cent ; and United States
Treasury notes 1.3 per cent.
The ratio of total earning assets to
paid-in capital now stands at 268 per csnt, as against 246 per cent
the week before, and 163 per cent reported at the end of the first week
in the present year.
Government deposits show a decrease for the week of about
,
1 .5 millions, the New York bank reporting the net withdrawal of 2.2
millions of Government funds. The aggregate member bank deposits in­
creased about 3.5 millions , largely with the Boston, New York, and
Cleveland banks.
The outstanding circulation of Federal reserve bank notes
increased about 0,3 million.
Federal Reserve Agents report a total of
