STATEMEFT FOR THE PRESS.
April 21, 1917.

Renewal of discount activities by some of the Federal reserve banks,
continued liquidation of acceptances,, further issues of Federal reserve
notes and transfers of gold to thj Federal Reserve Agents ad cover for
the additional note issues, are indic&ted by the weekly bank statement
issued today as at close of business April 20, 1917*
-Aggregate gold
reserves of the banks show a gain of about one-half million, while total
cash reserves increased about 3«S millions.
The total gold resources
of the system, including amounts of gold held by both the Federal reserve
banks and agents s o - .- a gain for the weak of about 9*3 millions, and
hw stand now at $958,171,000, having increased about 30 per cent since the
beginning of the year.
The week witnessed considerable transfers of geld from New York
to other Federal reserve banks, largely through the Gold Settlement Fund.
As a result the gold reserve, of the Hew York bank shows a decrease of
about 15 millions, while the bankas adverse balance of about 17*3 millions
in account with the other Federal reserve banks., has given place to a
favorable balance of over 1.5 millions. Government deposits with the
bank increased about 2,7 millions, following transfers of funds by the
Treasury from three other banks, while earning assets decreased about
3 millions through liquidation of acceptances. Gains in gold reserve by
other Federal reserve banks are due in most cases to increased balances
in the Gold Settlement Fund, accompanied by decreases in amounts due
from other Federal reserve banks.
Discounted paper on hand shows an increase for the week of about
7*7 millions, Boston, Minneapolis and New York reporting the largest in­
creases under this head. Of the total held $5 , 972 , 000 , as against $5,546,
000, is represented by member bank collateral notes. Over 80 per cent
of these notes are held by the Cleveland, Richmond and St. Louis banks.
The gain in the holdings of discounts is offset by the decreases in the
holdings of acceptances, all the banks, except Richmond and Minneapolis,
reporting net liquidation; of bank paper on hand.
No changes worth men­
tioning are shown for other classes of investments.
Total investments,
$227,4-00,000, constitute at present 403 Per cent of the banks’ paid-in
capital.
Of the total 32 .1 per cent is represented by acceptances;
21.9 per cent by U. S, certificates of indebtedness; 15*9 Psr cent by
U. S. bonds; I 3 .I per cent by discounts; 1 0 . 3 per cent by Treasury notes,
and 6*7 per cent by warrants.
Accession to the system 0| the Peoplei.8 Bank of St. Paul is reflected
through the increase of about $ 11 , 000, in the paid-in capital of the
Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank. Government deposits show but a slight
decrease for the week, though there has been considerable shifting «f
funds mainly to the New York bank.
Member be.nk reserve deposits show
a net gain for the week of over 1 million, Boston, Cleveland and San
Francisco reporting the main increases under this head.
Net issues to date of Federal reserve notes aggregate $440,539,001},
an^‘ increase... during the week of $8 , 751 , 000, nearly two-thirds of which
represents additional note issues by the New York and Chicago banks. .
Against the total issued the Agents hold $418,538,000, of gold and $23 ,826,000, of paper* The banks report- an actual Federal reserve note cir­
culation of $414,357,000, and aggregate liabilities thereon of $16,459,000

STATEMENT FOR THE PRESS.
April 28, 1917*

The Federal Reserve Board made public to-da? its weekly bank statement
as at close of business on April 27^ ■1917 *
statement reflects to some
extent the week!s credit operations of the Treasury in procuring, through the
Federal reserve banks, a temporary short-time loan of 250 million d o l l a r s ,
largely for the benefit of the British Government. The part taken by the Fed­
eral reserve banks in the latest loan was mainly that of fiscal agents in re­
ceiving subscriptions and concentrating the funds subscribed at the New York
Reserve Bank for transfer to the financial representative of the British Gov­
ernment# A relatively small amount of $8,145,000, represents subscriptions
of the Federal reserve banks themselves, both for own account and on behalf
of coriaiii
banks.
Other items showing the effect of the reserve bans1 assistance in the
loan operation and of tho concentration of funds in New York lor the credit and
use of tho Govofhment are gold and cash reserves which show<jfi|creases for the
week of 17*4 and 11*5 millions respectively; uncollected items which increased
37*9 millions, of which 17 millions represents xhe increase in.the amount of
transferrdrafts bought;
Government deposits, which gained 57*7 millions, or
7#5 millions more than the portion of the loan reserved by the Govern ment for
its own use; and member bank reserve deposits, which decreased 22*8 millions
during the week*
The New York Reserve bank statement indicates an increase for the Week of
about 53*8 millions in its balance with the Gold Settlement Fund, resulting
from the transfer through the Fund of subscriptions to the 250 million dollar
loan received by the other Federal reserve banks* As a further result, the
bank reports the change of a favorable balance of about 1*5 millions in account
with other Federal reserve banks to an adverse balance of 4l«8 millions, which
is, however, offset in part by a considerable increase in Clearing House ex­
changes and out-of-town'items* Changes in reserve and deposits shown for the
other reserve banks are due mainly to transactions in connection with the loan
issue* The reserve position of the banks as a whole is slightly less favorable
than the week before, the ratio of cash reserve to net deposit and note liabil­
ities having declined from 74*2 to 72*5 Psr cent* Larger reductions in cash
reserve and in reserve percentages are indicated for the P h i l a d e l p h i a and St*~
Louis banks, the former bank reporting as an offset a change from 1*2 millions
due to other Federal reserve banks, to 6*6 millions due from other Federal re­
serve b&nks, and the latter - an increase of about 4 millions in the amount of
transfer drafts bought.
Apart from the mentioned increase of $8,145,000 i*1
amounts of U* S*
Government certificates, the banks show some gains in discounted paper o n hand,
Philadelphia, Richmond, Chicago and St.Louis reporting the main increases under
this head* Acceptances on hand declined about 1#5 millions in volume, the lar­
ger decline of 3*6 millions shown for the Boston bank being offset largely by
gains reported by the other Eastern banks* Total earning assets of the banks
stand at present at $239,260,000 or 424 per cent of the banks1 paid-in capital,
compared with 403 per cent shown the week before* Of the total investments
29*8 per cent is represented by acceptances;
24*3 Per cent by 2 per cent and
3 per cent certificates of indebtedness;
15.*1 P^r cent by U* S. bonds; l4*7
per cent by discounts; 9*8 per cent by Treasury notes; and 6*3 Ver cen^ ^
vtfarrants♦
Additional note issues for the week of over 6 millions are reported by Fed­
eral reserve agents. Against the total of $446,544,000 of Federal reserve notes
outstanding the agents hold $422,905,000 of gold and $25,981,000 of paper* The
banks report a total of $420,509^000 of reserve notes in actual circulation and
$18,226,000 of aggregate liabilities thereon*
