Large gains in member banks deposits, accompanied by substantial isrithdra^a
Of Government deposits and considerable .increases in gold reserves are indicates

ness on June 14, 1918.

millions, all the banks except Kansas City reporting moderate gains in their
holdings of discounted paper. Of the total on hand - 64.3 per cent as against
63.7 per cent the week before, is represented by War Joaa paper, a ^ . , member^

chased b ills. U. S, bonds on hand show a decrease of 23.8 millions, the New
York bank having disposed of certain temporary holdings of Liberty bonds^ includes
in the June 7 statement, Total investments show an increase for the week of 2
millions.
DEPOSITS: A net decrease of 24.3 millions in Government deposits is indi­
cate d7~besxdes considerable shifting of funds between banks. Member dames de­
”
posits, apparently as the result of heavy tax payments, increased by 105,9 mil­
lions. Other deposits, largely because of the opening of a deposit account by
the War Finance Corporation with the Hew York bank, show a gain of 13.7 millions
Net deposits, owing to the large increase in "float" mainly uncollected items,
which are treated as a deduction from gross deposits, show an increase of but
12.4 millions.
RESERVES: Gold reserves increased 27.6 millions, both the NewYork^and
Chicago banks reporting large gains. Total cash reserves for the first time ^ro
shovm in excess of 2 billions. The ratio of total reserves to aggregate note
and deposit liabilities shows an increase for the week from
to § f p e r
cent,
FEDERAL RESERVE CIRCULATION: Federal Reserve Agents report net additional
issues of 23.5.miIf'£cns"of~Federal Reserve notes, The actual note circulation
of the banks increased by 12.3 millions, of which about 0.4 million represents
the increase in Federal Reserve bank note circulation of three Reserve Banks.
CAPITAL: An increase of $49,000 in paid-in capital is due largely to pay­
ments for Federal Reserve bank stock by newly admitted m
e-.nbers, largely in the
San Francisco and Atlanta Reserve districts.
CONDITION OF KEMB3R BAMS, JUNE 7, 1918
Substantial withdrawals of Government deposits from banks in both central
and other reserve cities accompanied by somewhat s a L c gains in. net aemansd.
fc JU ie t
deposits are indicated in the Board's weakly statement of condition on June 7
of 688 member banks and trust companies in about 100 leading cities.
During the week under rev lev/ reporting banks decreased their holdings of
Treasury certificates of indebtedness by about 30 millions, the Greater l:ew
York banks alone reporting a decrease under this head of over Sg millions. U.S,
bends, other than circulation bonds, show a decline of 14.6 millions, though
the New York banks report a gain in their U.S. bond holdings cf 5.1 millions.
Loans secured by U .S . war obligations went up by 9.6 millions, while other
loans and investments show a gain of 41.5 millions. Of the total loans* and in­
vestments shown the share of U .S . war Obligations and. loans secured by such
obligations was 17.1 per cent as against 17,4 per cent the week before.
Net demand deposits of all reporting banks increased 55.4 millions, while
time deposits declined about 5 millions. For the central reserve city banks an
increase of' about 30.5 millions in net demand deposits and a decrease of 5.9
millions in time deposits is ncted. Net withdrawals of government deposits
aggregated 144.2 millions, 56.4 millions representing net withdrawals from
centa
ralreserve city banks, and 74.6 millions net withdrawals from banks in
otlfers3cilfie8. Aggregate reserves sh«w a gain of about 25 millions, this gain
being confined to banks in oentral reserve cities. Cash in vault increased by
about 5.9 millions.
As a result of the decrease in government deposits the ratio of investments
to total deposits of all reporting banks shove-an increase from 110 to 111 per
cent, while for the central reserve city banks this ratio increased from 106,9
to 107.4 per cant. Similarly the ratio of combined reserves and cash to total
deposits of all reporting banks went up from 13.1 to 13.5 per cent, and from 14,4
to 14.9 per cent for the banks in central reserve cities* Total excess reserves
show a gain from 50.4 t# 66.8 millions. For the New York city banks a more than
corresponding gain from 26.1 to 45 millions &# noted.
