STATEMENT FOR THE PRESS.

December 9 , 1916,
Large rediscount operations of the eastern banks during the past week,
as w ell as considerable purchases of paper in the open market,are indicated
by the weekly bank statement issued by the Federal Reserve Board as at close
of business on December 8, 1916.
Federal reserp notes in circulation increased
by over 10 m illio n s , a ll the banka except S t, Louis and Dallas reporting addi­
tions to th eir outstanding circulation.
Aggregate gold reserves show a de­
crease for the week of 1 1 ,2 m illion^, while total cash reserves declined 1 7 .4
m illio n s .
Total net deposits increased about 7 m illio n s, while earning as­
sets went up about 2 3 .3 m illions, the difference between these two items rep­
resenting approximately the decrease in total cash reserve.
New York reports an increase of 9 ,3 inillions in discounts and of 4 ,7
m illions in acceptances held, also a total of about 4 m illions of gold trans­
ferred to the Agent against Federal reserve notes.
On the other hand the bank
liquidated during the week about 6 .4 m illions, net, of warrants, issued almost
the entire amount of notes received from the Agent, and reduced by about l / 2
m illio n its favorable balance in account with other Federal reserve banks.
The bank's total cash reserve shows a decrease of 6 .4 m illio n s, mainly in the
amounts of silv e r and legals on hand,
Ph iladelp h ia shows a decrease of 6*7 m illions in reserve, together with
an increase of 3 ,3 in earning assets, a total of 1 .8 m illions of gold trans­
ferred to the Agents, a reduction of over $ 7 0 0 ,0 0 0 in total deposits, and a
substantial decreaaein the amounts due to other Federal reserve banks.
De­
creases in reserves shown by the other banks may be traced chiefly to invest­
ment operations for the week;
in part, also, to the building up of favorable
balances in account with other Federal reserve banks, and to transfers of
gold to Agents against notes issued by the la t te r .
»

Discounts on hand, - $ 3 8 ,3 4 5 ,0 0 0 - exceed by nearly 5 m illions the previous
high record total shown "about a year ago.
Over 60 per cent of the total d is ­
counts is held at present by the 3 eastern banks, and only 15 per cent by the 3
southern banks.
The total includes $ 9 ,7 5 0 ,0 0 0 of member banks' collateral notes
reported by 11 reserve banks.
An increase of 1 3 ,4 m illions is shown in the aggregate of acceptances held,
all the banks except Boston showing substantially larger holdings of this class
of paper than the week before.
Of the total b ills - including acceptances - on
hand, 4 6 .8 per cent mature within 30 days and 3 1 . 4 per cent after 30 but within
60 days.
Liquidation of New York City notes accounts largely for the decrease
of over 8 m illions in the total holdings of municipal warrants.
Transactions
in U. S . bonds are reported by 8 banks, resulting in an increase of $ 1 ,3 3 3 ,0 0 0
in the total h e ld .
There has been no change during the w§ek in the amount of
Treasury notes on hand.
Total earning assets show a gain of 23-1/3 m illions,
constituting 402 per cent of the banks* paid-in cap ital, as against 360 per cent
shown the week before,
Of the total, 5 3 .5 per cent is represented by acceptances
1 8 ,5 per cent by U, S , bonds;
1 7 ,1 per cent by discounts;
5.9 per cent by war­
rants;
and 5 per cent by Treasury notes.
Government deposits increased about 1 , 9 m illio n s, the New York, Boston and
San Francisco banks reporting the largest net gains in Crovernraent funds.
Bank
deposits show a net gain of 5 .1 m illio n s, resulting from a decrease in the
amount of transit items, which are treated as deductions from gross deposits.
No change is shown in the ret amount of Federal reserve bank notes out­
standing.
Federal Reserve Agents report a total of $ 3 7 9 ,4 5 2 ,0 0 0 , net of Fed­
eral reserve notes issued, against which they hold $ 2 6 4 ,6 3 9 ,0 0 0 of gold ana
$ 1 5 ,4 5 4 ,0 0 0 of paper.
The banks show a total of $ 2 5 7 ,3 0 2 ,0 0 0 of. Federal reserve
notes in circulation and aggregate l i a b i l i t i e s of $ 1 1 ,4 2 3 ,0 0 0 on notes issued
to them by the Agents.

reserve agents against notes issued, increasing t h e ir aggregate gold holdings

As against an increase of 6»7 m illions in reserve, the New York bank

of 8 . 1 m illions in the balance due from other Federal reserve banks.
Chicago's gain o f 4 . 1 m illions in reserve is accompanied by a reduction of
about 4 . 5 m illions in its favorable balance in account with other Federal
reserve banks, and a gain of over $ 7 0 0 ,0 0 0 in net deposits.
San Francisco
reports an increase in reserve of slightly less than 2 m illio n s , the larger
increase in the b a n k 's net deposits being offset in part by transfers of
gold to the agent .
Discounted paper on hand shows a decrease of about $ 6 0 0 ,0 0 0 for the
week, the New York and Boston banks reporting smaller holdings of paper
than at the end of the preceding week.
Of the to tal discounts over 12#5
m illio n s , or almost 30 per cent, is represented by advances to members on
th eir own c o lla t e r a l notes.
Acceptances on hand gained about 3»1 m illions,
Richmond, Minneg? olis and Kansas City reporting the largest increases under
this head.
Of the total b ills - including acceptances - on hand, 46«7 P©r
cent mature w ith in 30 days, and 32*5 P®r cent a ft e r 30/ but w ithin 60 days.
Transactions in United States bonds are shown for
three banks,
the total on hand - 4 2 .6 m illions - being over 1 m illion in excels of the
total shown the week 1bfore.
No change is reported in the amounts of 1 -year
Treasury notes held.
Liquidation on a large scale of local city warrants
by the New York bank accounts m ainly for the decrease of over 2 millions
shown in the to t a l holdings of municipal warrants.
Total earning assets are at present in excess of 225 m illio n s, con­
stitu tin g about 405 P©r cent of the banks' paid-in c ap ital, as against 3OO
per cent s ix months ago.
Of the total earning assets 5 4 .5 Per cent is rep­
resented by acceptances]
1 8 .9 per cent by United States bonds;
16*7 psr
cent by discounts;
5 P®r cent by warrants, and 4 .9 per cent by Treasury
no te s .
No appreciable change is shown in the total of Government deposits,
though there has been some s h iftin g of Government funds between banks dur­
ing the past week.
Large increases in net bank deposits are indicated for
the Boston, NewYork and San Francisco banks.
L ia b i l it y on circulatin g Federal reserve bank notes has been exting­
uished through the deposit of la w fu l money with the Treasurer of the United
States.
Federal reserve agents report the issue of $ 2 8 9 /7 7 8 /0 0 0 , net, of
Federal reserve notes, an increase of over 10 m illions during the week.

paper.
