STATEMENT FOR THE PRESS.
January 19, 191G,
Largo increases in Gov emu. nt deposits, following the pay­
ment of the last installment oi thv 8;cond Liberty Loan together
with a substantial gain in rea:rvos are th- outstanding foaturo of
.
the. Federal Ros:rve Board's bank statement showing condition of tho
Reserve banks as at clos. of business on January 18, 1918.
Now York reports a gain of about 34 n.illions in reserve,
together with not liquidation of over 15 millions in certificates
of indebtedness and an incroa3o of about 18.2 millions in its bal­
ance duo to othor Federal Rosorvo banks. Richmond’ s loss of 7,9
rJLllions in roaorvo is duo prii-arily to heavy discounts, also to
a decroaoo of 4,1 millions in m mbs r bank deposits and a net ino
croaso of 6,3 millions An its balance due iron, other Federal Ro­
sorvo banks, off sot to s o
n.o oxtont by tho gain of about 15 millions
in Govornr.ont deposits. Chicago reports a loss of 12.1 millions
rosorvo, its gain of 41,8 trillions in Government deposits bei4g more than offset by heavy discounts of paper, chiefly collat­
eral notes secured by Government obligations, and the purchase in
large volume of transfer drafts for the accommodation of its mem­
bers. Changes in reserves shown for the other banks are due to
increasetsin Government deposits or, where decreases occur,
mainly to changes in the balances in account with other Reserve
banks.
Discounted paper on hand shows an increase for the week
of about 32.8 millions, Chicago, and Richmond reporting the greateatgains under this head. Of the total, over 300 millions, or al­
most one-half is represented by paper protected by Government se­
curities, the New York, Boston and Chicago banks reporting together
over 75 per cent of this class of paper, A decrease of about 18.5
millions is shown in the holdings of Government securities, the
New York and Cleveland banks reporting considerable sales of Gov­
ernment securities held as temporary investments. No substantial
changes are shown in the holdings of acceptances or other earning
assets. Total earning assets increased about 12.6 millions and
constitute 69,1 per ijc n of the banks1 net deposits, as against
-t
70,7 per cent the week before. ,,0f the total, discounts consti­
tute 58,4 per cent; acceptances ij4.9 per cent; U. S. securities,
16,3 per cent and other earning assets, 0,4 per cent,
Payment by newly admitted members for Federal Reserve
Bank stock accounts for a total increase of $335,000 in capital
account, the New York Bank alone reporting an increase of $260,000
under this head. All the banks report substantial increases in
Government deposits, Chicago, Cleveland and Boston showing the
largest gains. Members* reserve deposits fell off at all the banks,
declines being largest at the four Eastern banks. An increase of
about 10.5 millions in other deposits is due chiefly to the open­
ing of an exchange account by the Argentine Government with the
New York Federal Reserve Bank.
Federal Reserve Agents report an addition for the week
of $4,957,000 to the net amount of notes issued. Against the total
of $1,373,105,000 of notes outstanding they hold at present
$796,727,000 of gold and $609,056,000/piper. The actual note cir­
culation shown by tfie banks totals $1,^38,797,000, marking a fur­
ther decrease for the week of $3,402,000.

SEATiS/IaL£T POE THE PHE53

January ?.S, 191S
Reports from 659 member banks ir. 101 cities, reflecting condition
as at close of business on January 11,

(as against 640 b&nke, jn

96 cities

heard from the week before) indicate net decreases of about U3 millions in
Government securities owned and of
obligations.

32 millions in loans secured by Government

For the New York City banks a decrease for the week of about

IS .3 millions in Government securities owned is shown, while loans secured
by Government obligations fell off about 35*6 millions.

Loans and investments

in the aggregate show but little change, while loans ~nd investments of the

56

reporting New York banks show a decrease for the week ox about 35 millions,
Government deposits declined about 131,4 millions, withdrawals
being heaviest at New York City«

Large portions of the funds withdrawn were

deposited to the credit of the Allied Governments, chiefly at Now York City
banks,

Accordingly, aggregate net demand deposits of all reporting banks shew

an increase for the week of 272.4 millions, of which 111,3 millions represents
the increase in demand deposits reported for the New York City member banks.
The ratio cf loans and investments to total deposits of all reporting banks,which the week before stood at about

105 per cent, has gone

down to 104 per cent, while for the New York banks this ratio has declined from

100,7 to 99*9 par cent*

Reserves with the Federal Reserve bank show an increase

more cr less commensurate with the gains in demand deposits.

Of the tot^l :;e*’

serve account of l,49o»5 millions shown for January 11 by all Federal Reserve
Banks * the share of the reporting banks is slightly over SO per cent, this
ratio continuing fairly constant from w^ek to week.

For the reporting banks

in the New York Reserve district this percentage runs as high as 95 P~r cent..
Little change is shown for cash in vault and time deposits, The ratio of combined reserve and cash in vault to total net deposits of all
reporting banks remained unchanged at about

15 per cent.

For the Hew York

City banks, ,owing to substantial increases in reserve and cash, this ratio
shows an increase from




15*7 to 16.5 Per cent.

STATEMENT FOR THE PRESS
January 26, 1918.
Heavy withdrawals of Government deposits coupled with substantial
increases in member bank reserve deposits mainly at the four Eastern and
the San Francisco banks are indicated in the Federal Reserve Board's weekly
bank statement issued as at close of business on January 25, 1918. Aggre­
gate gold reserves shew a decrease of about 3 millions while total cash re­
serves fell off about 1.5 millions.
New York reports a gain of 35.2 millions in total reserves accom­
panied by an almost equal increase in member bank reserve deposits. The bank
liquidated about 26 millions cf investments, mainly U. S. certificates of in­
debtedness, held temporarily for the accommodation of member hanks, and col­
lateral notes, secured by Liberty bonds and certificates of indebtedness;
it also paid off an aggregate balance of over 25 millions in account with
other Federal Reserve banks. Chicago’s decrease of 34.7 millions in reserves
is due largely to the withdrawal of 31.8 millions of Government funds, also
to an increase of 5.3 millions in investments. Changes in reserves reported
by other Banks are due largely to the withdrawal.* of Government deposits or,
to the shifting between banks of credits in the Gold Settlement Fund.
Bills discounted on hand show an increase of 24.2 millions, the
Cleveland, Chicago, Kansas City and San Francisco banks reportirig substan­
tial additions to their holdings of members banks' collateral notes, secured
largely by Government obligations, Of the total discounts held, the amount
of paper secured by Government obligations is 312.5 millions as against 300.3
millions the week before. Holdings of Government short-term securities,
largely certificates of indebtedness, show a decline for the week of nearly
50 millions, the New York and Cleveland banks reporting the largest sales
of this class of securities.
Acceptances held increased by about 16.1 millions, Boston and New
York accounting for practically the entire increase shown. U. S. bonds on
hand show a gain of 4,6 millions, mainly at the New York and Minneapolis
banks. The inerease of over 1 million dollars in all other earning assets
shdwn by the Chicago bank is due almost entirely to the purchase of warrants.
Total earning assets decreased about 4 millions and represent about 69 per
cent of aggregate net deposits, as against 70.7 per cent the week before.
Of the total, discounts constituted 60.9 per cent; acceptances 26.6 per
cent; U. S. securitiesj 12.0 per cent, and ether earning assets, 0.5 per
ce»t.
Payment for Federal Reserve stock by newly admitted members ac­
counts for an increase of $501,000 in the total of paid-in capital, N#w
York and Cleveland reporting the largest additions under this head. Over
23 per cent of the capital stock of the Federal Reserve banks stands at
present in the name of State banks and Trust companies. Government de­
posits show a decrease ef 104.1 millions, all the banks,except Atlanta, St.
Louis and Dallas, reporting substantial withdrawals of Government funds.
Member banks' reserve deposits increased 59.2 millions, the Boston and New
York banks showing the largest gains under this head.
But little change is indicated in the total amount of Federal Re­
serve notes outstanding. Against the total amount of notes issued to the
banks the Agents hold collateral of $793,819,000 in gold and $634,363,000
in paper. Total Federal Reserve notes in actual circulation show a further
decrease of 53,663,000 dollars. The ratio of the banks’ xotal reserves to
their net deposit and Federal Reserve note liabilities combined shows a rise
from 65,2 to 65.4 per cent.

millions for the first two items as against an increase of 4 2 .S millions
in other loans and investments, Liquidation of Government lr
iar loan se­
curities and of loans protected by such securities apparently was con­

fore .
Wet demand deposits of all reporting hanks are shown to
have decreased 183.9 millions, of which 122»1 millions represents the
decrease for the banks in the three central reserve cities, and 95.9
millions the decrease for the New ^ork City hanks. Time deposits de­
creased slightly* itfhile Government deposits went ur about 10 millions.
For all reporting banks the ratio of total loans and in­
vestments to aggregate deposits works out at 106.2 per cent as against
104.# per cqtit the week before. For the banks in central reserve
cities this ratio remains unchanged at 100.2 per cent, while fcr the
New York City banks this ratio in creased from 99.9 to 100.3 per c*nt.
The ratio of combined vault cash and reserve to aggregate deposits of
all reporting banks shovrs a decline from 14.9 to 14.5 p.r cent. For
the banks in the central reserve citic.c this ratio d clined from 15.3
e
to 16*0 per cent and for the New York City hanks from 16,5 to 16.1
