The above estimates are exclusive of army and navy and merchant seamen abroad. They are taken from the " Statistical Abstract" published each year by the
Board of Trade, which obtains them from the registrar-general. The following extract from " T h e Annual Summary of Marriages, Births, and Deaths in England
and Wales" will show the method adopted in estimating them:
" Failing authoritative returns of the total movement of the population, a provisional estimate has been made by assuming that the rate of growth since 1901 has
been the same as it was found to be between the censuses of 1891 and 1901, and the total thus estimated has been distributed among the various divisions of the
country in proportions determined by their rates of growth during the same period."
The figures given below are the returns for the last five censuses. The apparent discrepancy between these figures and those previously given is accounted for by
the fact that the estimated figures are calculated on June 30 while the census returns are taken on April 1.

The above figures, which relate to London clearing returns only, were obtained from tables in the London Economist's "Commercial History and Review," which
has been published annually for many years. The returns did not show town and country clearings separately until 1902. Some other large towns have clearing systems
and the following figures, which were also obtained from the Economist's "Commercial History and Review," show the bank clearing returns from Manchester, Liverpool,
Birmingham, and Newcastle-on-Tyne, since 1894. From 1897 onward returns from Bristol are also included.

The above accounts are exclusive of bullion and specie and of foreign merchandise trans-shipped under bond. The values of the imports represent the cost, insurance,
and freight, or when goods are consigned for sale, the latest sale value of such goods. The values of the exports represent the cost and the charges of delivering the goods
on board ship and are known as "free on board" values. Tobacco manufactured in bond was included with the exports of foreign and British produce prior to 1892.
In that and subsequent years it has been included in British produce.

The above figures are the traffic returns and gross and net earnings of all the railways in the United Kingdom. The English returns do not give the number of
tons of freight carried 1 mile, but they give train mileage, which is the nearest British equivalent.
The figures for 1868 can not be obtained, as some of the railway companies did not send in returns for that year. For 1867 receipts from miscellaneous sources are
included with those obtained from passengers, parcels, etc.

a Satisfactory figures for these years cannot be obtained.
These figures are ascertained by deducting the re-exports from the imports. No allowance has been made for any quantity that may have been re-exported after
being worked up or further manufactured. Sugar was first admitted duty free in 1874, but a duty was re-imposed in 1902. Half of this duty was remitted in the budget
of 1908.

a First valuation list in the metropolis under the Act (32 and 33 Vict., c. 67) came into force on April 5,1871.
b "Gross amount of property and profit assessed" from April 5,1873, includes exemptions under Schedules A and B, formerly omitted in Ireland.
c Second valuation list in the metropolis under the Actj(32 and 33 Vict., c. 67) came into force on April 5,1876, and formed the basis of assessment concurrently with new
assessment under A and B for rest of the Kingdom.
d Third valuation list in the metropolis came into force on April 5, 1881, and formed basis of assessments under Schedules A and B, the new valuation for the rest of
the Kingdom, which takes place every third year, having preceded it on April 1,1879.
eNew assessments under Schedules A and B came into force for the metropolis in 1881-82, 1886-87, 1891-92, 1896-97, 1901-2, and in 1906-7, and for the rest of the
United Kingdom in 1882-83, 1885-86,1888-89,1893-94, 1898-99, and 1903-4.
/ The apparent increase in this amount as compared with that of the previous year arises from the duty being charged at seven-eighths of the rate in force in lieu of
the parliamentary deduction of one-eighth being made from the gross rental of tithe free lands in England before being charged to duty. Allowing for this, there is an actual
decrease of about £1,620,905 in the net value of lands in England for 1882-83.
g In 1894-95 an allowance under Schedule A was first granted for repairs.
h Previous to 1891-92, Schedules A, B, C, D, and E and their total represent the net amount of property and profits charged to the duty of income tax, but after that
date they represent the amount of income on which tax was received.
t For the years 1891-92,1892-93 and 1893-94 income tax was levied on incomes of £150 a year and upward (with an abatement of £120 on incomes under £400); for the
years 1894-95 to 1897-98 on incomes above £160 (with abatements of £160 on incomes not exceeding £400 and £100 on incomes exceeding £400 but not exceeding £500); for
the years 1898-99 to 1906-7 on incomes above £160 (with abatements of £160 on incomes exceeding £160 but not exceeding £400); £150 on incomes exceeding £400 but
not exceeding £500; £120 on incomes exceeding £500 but not exceeding £600; and £70 on incomes exceeding £600 but not exceeding £700.
k Statistics incomplete owing to a necessary change in practice following legislation.
N. B.—The net produce represents the yield of the tax imposed for any particular year irrespective of the date of actual collection. For 1870-71 and previously the total
net produce and produce per penny are only approximate.

STATISTICS OF JOINT-STOCK AND OTHER BANKS OF THE UNITED KINGDOM.
TABLE No. 1.—AMOUNT OF BANK CAPITAL AND SURPLUS (RESERVE FUND), IN UNITED KINGDOM, 1877-1908.
The following figures are compiled from the London Economist's annual banking supplements, the first of which was published in 1877. The figures relating to the
amount of bank capital of the joint stock banks are complete as far back as 1878. The same cannot be said of the figures showing the reserve fund of the joint stock banks
and the amount of partners' capital and reserve fund of the private banks, for these had to be obtained from balance sheets issued by the various banking companies, and
as will be explained in the "Memorandum on Bank Deposits" the earlier returns are far from complete.
The sudden fall shown in the returns of the colonial joint stock banks with London offices for the year 1893 is accounted for by the fact that ten Australian banks
suspended payment in that year. They underwent reconstruction, and their returns were again available in 1894.

NATIONAL MONETARY COMMISSION.
MEMORANDUM ON BANK DEPOSITS.

The above figures have been extracted from the Banking Supplements of the Economist. The first of these was published in 1877, and it has not been ound possible
to obtain satisfactory figures previous to that date. As it is, the earlier returns are far from complete, for at that date joint stock banks did not arrange their balance sheets
on a uniform plan, and some did not publish any statement of accounts at all.
With regard to joint stock banks in England and Wales, only 50 banks out of a total of about 120 were included in the first return, 71 in the second, and 73 in the third.
The deposits of the banks included in the third return corresponded to about 84 per cent of the total capital then employed in joint stock banking in England and Wales.
The returns rapidly became more complete, and, owing to improvements in the balance sheets issued by the various banks, more accurate figures were obtained. By
1886 there were only 5 banks, or less than 1 per cent, which did not issue returns, and two years later a complete return of the joint stock banks in England and Wales
was available.
The returns for the Scottish joint stock banks were complete as far back as 1878. The earlier figures were affected by the failure of the City of Glasgow Bank, but they
had quite recovered by 1883.
In 1878 the returns for the Irish banks only corresponded to about 45 per cent of the total capital employed in joint stock banking in Ireland, but they gradually grew
more complete and by 1883 corresponded to nearly 61 per cent of the total capital employed. They were not completed, however, until 1886, when returns for the Bank of
Ireland were obtained for the first time.
The private banks of the United Kingdom did not publish any balance sheets until 1892, when 37 were available. From this date their number showed a steady
decrease, as they were gradually absorbed by amalgamations with various large joint stock banking companies. These amalgamations, which have occurred with increasing frequency since the early nineties, are partly responsible for the rapid increase shown in the later returns of the deposits of the joint stock banking companies.
The returns for the joint stock banks in the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands have not been included in the above figures, as several of the Manx and Channel Island
banking companies were absorbed by English joint stock banking companies. The deposits of the Manx banks in October, 1878, were £484,000, and in October, 1908,
£1,059,000.
The months May and October refer to the date of the publication of the Economist Banking Supplement, and do not represent the actual dates of the balance
sheets. With regard to English and Welsh banks the May supplement gives figures taken from the balance sheets issued on December 31 and the October
supplement figures taken from t h e balance sheets issued on June 30. The Scotch, Irish, colonial, and foreign banks issue balance sheets at various dates and in each
case the figures have been taken from the last balance sheet issued before publication of the supplement.

STATISTICS OF MONEY, GOLD MOVEMENTS, RATES OF EXCHANGE, ETC.
TABLE No. 1.—IMPORTS AND EXPORTS OF GOLD MONTHLY, 1888-1908.
The following figures show the imports and exports of gold bullion and specie to and from Great Britain. They are given monthly for the last twenty years, and yearly
as far back as 1857. The monthly figures are obtained from the ofBcial board of trade returns issued every month. [It is impossible to obtain figures for a shorter period
than a month.] Previous to 1871 the "computed" value is given, but after that date the "declared" value is given. The annual movements appear in the final table.
[In pounds sterling.]

a These figures were obtained from the Thirty-fourth Annual Report of the Deputy Master and Comptroller of the Mint (1903) in which the following remarks
were made: * The estimate by this department of the gold coin in active circulation in 1895 was arrived at by five distinct methods. It may be observed that the
<
methods used in 1856,1868, and 1888 would give maximum amounts, and the results of the recoinage of light gold coin show that the estimate of 1888 was too high, and
that the estimate of 1895 was a closer approximation to the truth.
6 The figures relating to the total supply of gold are estimates of the total amount of British gold circulating all over the world, and not merely confined to the United
Kingdom. The figures showing the amount of gold per caput, therefore, are only very rough estimates. The same remarks apply to the figures showing the note issues.
c The figures showing the total supply of notes are for the last quarter of each year. The date given underneath shows the termination of the quarter.

MEMORANDUM ON SILVER CIRCULATION.
It is very difficult to obtain satisfactory figures as to the circulation of British silver coin, either in the United Kingdom itself or in the British Empire. Eminent
authorities have at various times published estimates of the amount of gold coin in circulation, but few have made any calculations with regard to silver. Silver has been
token money in England since the year 1816, when silver was demonetized in accordance with Lord Liverpool's report. One of the earliest attempts to gauge the actual
amount of silver in circulation is contained in a "Treatise on the Coins of the Realm, in a Letter to the King," by the first Earl of Liverpool. Writing in or about the
year 1805, he arrives at an estimate by deducting the amounts of silver coin known to be withdrawn from circulation since the general recoinage in the reign of William
III, (1696), and concludes: "The total value of all the legal silver coins now in circulation can not, according to this estimate,exceed £3,960,435; it is probably very much
less."
Several later estimates were mentioned by Mr. J. B. Martin in a paper which appeared in the Journal of the Institute of Bankers for April, 1888. The following extract
from his paper gives the figures: " T h e master of the mint stated to the commission on decimal coinage, in 1857, that the quantity of silver coinage then presumed to be in
circulation was £14,167,000. Professor Jevons, in 1868, estimated the amount then in circulation to be the same, and the official figures of 1869-70 show a merely nominal
increase of £207,000." This works out at about 9s. 2d. per head of the population in 1870. Mr. Martin then gave a table which showed that the net issues of silver coin
between 1871 and 1886 were £4,166,298. This added to the previous estimate would give a figure of about £18,333,298 for 1886, or about 10s. per head of the population.
Mr. Ottoman Haupt says in his "Histoire Monetaire" that from 1816 to 1883 £31,211,000 of silver was coined in the United Kingdom, of which "d'apres nos informations"
£6,730,000 was retired between 1846 and 1885. This would give an approximate circulation of £24,481,000, or about 13s. 9d. per head of the population of the United Kingdom in 1883. This figure is not only much higher than Mr. Martin's, but it also seems in itself improbable, for it may be doubted whether the average amount of silver
carried in pockets and purses can be more than two or three shillings per head. The amount kept in the tills of shops and banks might be the same.
The latest estimate of the silver circulation is contained in the Thirty-first Annual Report of the Deputy Master and Comptroller of the Mint (1908), in which Doctor
Rose, the chemist and assayer to the-mint, says: "The total amount of silver coin issued up to the end of 1908, after deducting that withdrawn for recoinage, appears from
an examination of the existing records at the mint to be £41,969,433, or (exclusive of crowns and double florins) about £40,640,000," which works out at about 18s. 8d. per
head of the population. He goes on to state that the amount of silver coin outstanding must be less than that given above, owing to the occasional destruction and loss of
silver coin during the last ninety-two years. The amount so removed from circulation is doubtless comparatively small in the aggregate. The excess of this estimate is no
doubt partly due to colonial expansion. It is really a rough guess at the total amount of British silver in circulation all over the world. There is a considerable outward
movement of British silver coin, as will be seen from the appended table, showing the imports and exports of silver for a series of years. The greater part of these exports
apparently go to those British colonies and dependencies which make use of our currency. For instance, in 1908, of the total exports of silver coin, amounting to £429,780,
over seven-eighths, or £392,475, went to British possessions.
The following table summarizes the estimates given above, and as far as possible allows for the balance of exported silver:

£3,960,435

As far as we are able to ascertain from the official returns, about one-eighth of the total amount of silver issued is held by the banks, not including post-office savings
banks. The following table, taken from the mint report for 1908, shows the actual figures for the short period during which the mint has kept records. The returns are

The amount held by banks in the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands is included in this table under "Country."
The deputy master of the mint in his report states that the figures for 1908 show a marked increase over those of the previous year. This increase is largely due, he
says, to the returns for 1907 having been made on a Saturday. Owing to this circumstance they could only be taken as representing a minimum amount. In addition
to this, the depression in trade diminished the amount of silver in active circulation and increased the amount held in the banks. Large amounts of silver had been coined
in 1906 and 1907, owing to the boom in trade, and in 1908 there was more silver coin in the country than was required for the payment of wages or for shopping purposes.

The securities held in the issue department are invariably those of the British Government. The coin is invariably gold coin, principally struck at the British mint,
though the coins of other countries are held also. The bullion is also now, and has been since 1861, entirely gold bullion.
An examination of this table shows that in the sixty-three years between 1844 and 1907, the last year to which the table extends, the proportion of the notes issued
against bullion has, generally speaking, continually and steadily increased. The following extract from the table makes this very clear.

STATISTICS OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND.

81

The Bank of England has sometimes held a considerable amount of silver bullion. The Bank is empowered by the third clause of the act of 1844 to retain in the issue
department an amount of silver bullion not exceeding one-fourth part of the gold coin and bullion held. The Bank has never held so large a proportion as this. The
largest amount which it has held was £2,727,000 on October 3, 1846, when the gold bullion was quoted at £12,632,000. For the years from 1844 to 1847 the silver bullion
formed, however, a considerable fraction of the total amount of bullion held, and the annual averages from 1844 to 1853 are given in Table la, following. On August 20,
1853, the silver bullion ceased to be quoted in the returns of the Bank of England, except during the period from November 28, 1860, to July 3, 1861, when the Bank
held some silver bullion, as shown in Table lb, which follows. The heading and the space for the entry appeared weekly, however, in the return for many years afterwards.
The question whether it might not be desirable that the Bank of England should hold silver bullion again was discussed, some years since, in connection with the
low quotation for the Indian exchanges. Should such an operation ever be undertaken again by the Bank, it may be supposed that it would not be done except under
a guarantee from the Government, on whose behalf the operation would be carried out. When the bank acts were passed in 1844-45 "silver" was far more distinctly
"money" throughout Europe than it is at the present time.

The proprietors' capital is stated in column 1. This has remained at the amount of £14,553,000 throughout. It belongs altogether to private individuals. The State
does not hold any part of it. The annual average of the undivided profits is shown under the head of the " Rest" in column 2. This varies, naturally, from year to year.
The average of the rest for the period 1844-1847 is the highest shown—£3,432,000. The three highest annual averages were £3,654,000 in 1847; £3,585,000 in 1848; £3,535,000
In 1866. The three lowest averages were £3,158,000 in 1878; £3,222,000 in 1892; £3,221,000 in 1877. The decennial averages are as follows:

With regard to the division between "public" and "other " deposits, it was notified on the publication of the return of the Bank of England for the week ending
Wednesday, January 8,1873, that, with regard to the deposits in the return then issued, the practice was commenced of placing the Chancery balances under the head of
" Government deposits " instead of under that of the ordinary deposits of the public as heretofore. The average amount was about £1,000,000, and to that extent, therefore
the respective totals have undergone transposition. This must be borne in mind in comparing the amounts of the public and private deposits from 1844 to 1872, and from
1873 onward (columns 3 and 4).
Notwithstanding this transposition it will be observed that the other deposits have increased much more rapidly than the public deposits since 1873 and continue to
do so. These deposits when grouped in decennial periods show figures more than four times as large as they were in the year 1844, and the average of the last decennial period is nearly four times the amount of the decennial period 1848-1857. The actual amounts of the later years when taken separately show a much greater increase.
The amount for the year 1844 was £8,348,000; for the year 1907 it was £44,514,000.

A great deal of information of a very interesting character as to the manner In which the balances of the London bankers with the Bank are regarded by the Ban!
directors is given in some letters written by the late Lord Aldenham, then Mr. H. H. Gibbs, a well-known director and, in his course, governor of the Bank of England
published in an appendix to a book written by the late Prof. Bonamy Price. (Chapters on Practical Political Economy by Bonamy Price, Professor of Political Econ
omy in the University of Oxford. London: C. Kegan Paul & Co., 1878.) These letters form part of an animated and interesting correspondence between Lord Aldenhan
and Prof. Bonamy Price on the bank rate, the influx and efflux of gold, the " regulation of the currency," and other kindred subjects. I t is not necessary to enter int<
the consideration of all these questions at the present time; we will content ourselves with examining mainly two points which are discussed in the letters, namely, th<
manner in which the Bank of England views the bankers' balances kept with it, and the proportion of thsse sums which the authorities of the Bank consider they ma]
make use of in the ordinary way of business. The opinions of any director of the Bank, and especially of a past governor of such experience and standing as Lord Aldenham
are very valuable. The correspondence at the point alluded to turns first on the question whether the custody of such large sums as the bankers keep on their account
at the Bank of England may not cause some difficulty or even danger to the Bank. Lord Aldenham in referring to this, and to the fact that the bankers' account i
really an extremely easy one to arrange for, commences by remarking that "next to the government account, the account of the collective bankers is the most certain am
the most intelligible. * * * We know of the bankers, better than of any account in our books, what is the minimum balance wherewith they can live. They mus
have x on their account (a quantity unknown to all but us), and z—y therefore never appears. But if x+y is seen, then we know that y must remain untouched an<
uninvested—must, In fact, form an addition to our reserve; x is ours for profit if we like to use it, but y is ours only for safe custody. Where is the danger? On the othe
hand, the possession of that account is of the greatest importance to us, as affording the most perfect and. accurate measure of how far the public can at all act indepenc
ently of us." The italics are in the book quoted from.
In a later letter Lord Aldenham explains " that up to a certain point (x)," the normal balance of the bankers, was perfectly intelligible to the Bank; " (y) their abnorrm
balance, is an element of doubt." The bankers' balances up to the point of which Lord Aldenham speaks and which may approximately be estimated from the outsidi
are really not reserves to them at all; they are merely "till money" on a scale commensurate with their operations, relatively; that is, to the demands which may I
made on them at any moment in settling the clearing balances. This would be seen immediately if business in the city were conducted now as it used to be up to tr
date when the clearing demands were still settled by the payment of the actual notes, not by means of a check drawn on the Bank of England. No one could call tl
sums held in bank notes in the safe, or the drawer near the counter, for that purpose, a "reserve." The notes were merely "till money," and "till money" the amoun
which represent them still remain, though for their own convenience the banks have advanced a step beyond their primitive practice, and have agreed to divest then
selves of the actual custody of the notes, and to keep the money itself in Threadneedle street.

It would be very desirable that the publication of the bankers' balances should be continued. Some people think that the publication of the figures every week would
cause alarm. Personally I do not feel this alarm myself for reasons which I will shortly explain, but a statement published yearly or half yearly and brought up to a date
some weeks earlier than the date cf publication could not cause any danger, and would be of service. My own belief is that the publication would not only not cause any
alarm, but on the contrary would allay it. My own memory goes back to the time when the publication of the weekly statements of the Bank of England commenced,
and though as a boy, which I then was, I can not pretend to have understood what the publication really meant, yet I know that there were people then who were afraid
of the effect which the appearance of the weekly statements might have on the mind of the public, and expressed apprehensions which were shortly seen to be groundless.
I believe that the publication of the bankers' balances would rapidly meet with equal acceptance.
The amount of the seven-day and other bills is shown in column 5. These were in 1844, and for some ten years following, about or over £1,000,000. More recently
they have gradually dropped out of use, and in 1907 were under £70,000 in amount. The figures of the total deposits and seven-day bills, the amount—that is to say, of the
external liabilities—is shown in column 6. The average for the period 1844-1847 was £16,752,000.
The decennial averages are as follows:

The average for the period 1844-1847 was £13,121,000. The three highest annual averages, all occurring between 1898 and 1907, were £17,083,000 in 1900; £16,965,000 in
1904; £16,745,000 in 1905. The three lowest annual averages, all between 1858 and 1867, were £10,491,000 in 1865; £10,364,000 in 1858; £10,131,000 in 1861.

The decennial average of other securities held in the banking department are shown below. The average for the period 1844-1847 was £13,897,000. The three highest
annual averages, all between 1898 and 1907, were £32,810,000 in 1899; £32,757,000 in 1906; £32,132,000 in 1907. The three lowest annual averages, between 1844 and 1850,
were £11,048,000 in 1850; £10,222,000 in 1849; £9,472,000 in 1844.
The bills discounted and the temporary advances made by the Bank are all included among the other securities. The amounts of the bills discounted and of the temporary advances were published in official returns down to about the year 1875. The sums under both these headings never amounted to the half of the other securities,
and it is quite possible that they may continue to hold about the same proportion since. Very few other details as to the nature of these securities have ever been made
public. What is known about them is principally derived from Mr. Thomson Hankey's book on the Principles of Banking published 1867. Mr. Hankey was in his time
governor of the Bank. He possessed great natural shrewdness and was a first-rate man of business. Guided by his remarks, we may suppose a portion of the securities to
consist of railway debenture stocks, securities of colonial governments, corporation stocks, and other securities more or less of a permanent character. But nothing is known
about their composition with certainty.

The reserve is stated in three columns of Table II, column 12 showing the amount of the notes held in the banking department, column 13 showing the gold and silver
coin held there, and column 14 the total of these two columns added together. Column 15 shows the proportion of each amount stated to that in 1844. Column 16 shows
the proportion of the reserve to the liabilities on deposits and seven-day bills. The notes in the banking department are the balance between the notes issued (column 1 of
Table I) and those in the hands of the public (column 3 of Table IV). The gold and silver coin in the banking department is the specie held as " till money " in Threadneedle street and at the provincial offices of the bank at Birmingham, Bristol, Hull, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Plymouth, Portsmouth, also in
the two London branches—(1) Burlington Gardens and (2) the Law Courts branch.
The average of the reserve for the period 1844-1847 was £7,697,000. The three highest annual averages occurring between 1894-1905 were £34,645,000 in 1896, £25,834,000
in 1894, £25,306,000 in 1905. The three lowest annual averages between 1847 and 1857 were £5,772,000 in 1856, £5,347,000 in 1857, £5,272,000 in 1847. These annual averages
sometimes cover very extreme fluctuations in the weekly returns, but into this point I need hardly go here.
The decennial averages are as follows:

The proportion of the reserve to the I abilities deserves attention, the figures for the period 1844-1847 were 46 per cent. The proportion of individual years varies
greatly, as will be seen by reference to Table II. In 1857 and 1866, both j^ears of great pressure, it was no higher than 30 per cent. In 1852 and 1894, both years when the rate
of discount was low, it was 63 per cent and 64 per cent, respectively. It must be remembered that these are the proportions of annual averages. The weekly fluctuations
given in Table VII show much greater variations. A study of these is recommended.

a ii is .not possible to trace any absolute rule governing the fluctuations in the amount of notes issued, of the bank reserve, or of the public deposits. The increase in
the amount ofnotes held by the public may be influenced by the autumn holiday season and are no doubt influenced also by many other requirements, as for "till money"
by the banks in England and Wales. To explain this it may be mentioned here that the notes of the Bank of England are "legal tender " in England and Wales, b u t not
in Scotland and Ireland. From 1844 to 1881 a statement of the notes issued at the provincial branches of the Bank was made public. This showed that the provincial
circulation increased more rapidly in proportion than the remainder of the circulation. Since 1881 this information has not been continued. The columns showing the
proportion of the amount held each week to the average for the year enable the general movements to be traced with facility.

Within this period the average amount of the note circulation of the Bank of England in the hands of the public has been:

The annual average of the notes issued by those country banks in England and Wales which had the privilege of issue in 1844 diminished throughout the same period.
It has now practically disappeared. Compared with the number of the population in England and Wales in 1844-1847, the amount of this issue was equal to 9s. lOd. per
head during that period. It had dwindled to a nominal 6d. per head in 1898-1907. The circulation of the notes of the note-issuing banks in England and Wales never
increased since the passing of Peel's Act of 1844, and its extinction under the influence of that act can not now be far off.
It is different with the circulation of the note-issuing banks of Scotland and Ireland, which has increased not only in amount, but in proportion to the population.
The circulation in Scotland has been as follows:
1845-1847
£3,416,000
1848-1857
3,630,000
1858-1867

The note circulation in Ireland has followed rather a different course from that in Scotland. In Scotland the amount of the authorized issue has diminished from
£3,087,209 to £2,676,350. In Ireland alone in the United Kingdom the authorized issue has remained at the amount fixed by the acts of 1844-45, namely, £6,354,494.
The issuing banks both in Scotland and Ireland enjoy the privilege of extending their issues to the full amount of their requirements on condition that they hold specie,
gold or silver, against the amount in excess of the authorized issues. Of this privilege the issuing banks both in Scotland and Ireland largely avail themselves.
The course of the note circulation in Ireland has been as follows:
1845-1847

1848-1857
5,471,000

In Scotland the business of banking is solely in the hands of the eight banks which possess the privilege of the note issue. In Ireland six banks have the privilege,
but there are also three large and important banks which have never enjoyed the privilege and yet are able to carry on their business with success. It, hence, is obvious
that although the privilege of the note issues is an advantage to a bank in Ireland it is not at the present time essential.
Comparing the total amount of the notes in circulation (the notes in the hands of the public) with the population throughout the United Kingdom, the note circulation takes a distinctly less important place now than it did in 1844-45, for though the amount is larger the proportion per head is smaller.
The following are the total amounts of the note circulation of the United Kingdom in the hands of the public at the periods mentioned from 1845 to 1907, including the
notes of the Bank of England, issuing country banks in England and Wales, Scotland, and Ireland:
1845-1847
£37,743,000
1848-1857
35,598,000
1858-1867
37,491,000

43,974,0001908
43,058,000
1909
43,512,000

The gradual diminution of the note circulation proportionally to the population in the face of the enormous increase of "credit instruments," as exhibited by the growth
of the returns of the clearing houses throughout the country, shows conclusively that the use of the note no longer holds a predominant place in the work of the banks of the
United Kingdom.
I t has, however, some influence, the effect of which is accentuated by the regulations of the bank acts of 1844-45 respecting the Scotch and Irish circulation. As a "legal
tender" instrument the note of the Bank of England is convenient for use in England and Wales, but in Scotland and Ireland the notes of the issuing banks there are
employed for carrying on the regular transactions of their customers in a manner which has nothing corresponding to it in England. In Scotland considerable periodical
payments are yearly made at the half-yearly terms of Whitsuntide (May 15) and Martinmas (November 11). The term day is in some districts regulated by the "Old
Style," and thus the payments run into June and December.
In Ireland the note circulation is also usually heavier at much the same dates. The influence of these fluctuations in the circulation of notes in Scotland and Ireland
on the money market in England is exercised in the manner hereafter described. By the bank acts of 1844-45 specie is compelled to be held against any excess over the
limit authorized by those acts. It is not practicable for me, within the space to which these remarks should be limited, to give a complete statement of the working out
of this point. I may refer my readers to chapters XI and XII of my book on Bank Rate and the Money Market for further details. It is sufficient here to mention that
the resulting demand on the Bank of England may run to £1,000,000 and £1,500,000 or thereabouts, and that as a rule the months when the note circulation in Scotland
and Ireland and the bank rate are highest correspond in the majority of instances. This is not invariably the case, but the recurrence is sufficiently frequent to suggest a
connection between them. The specie taken to Scotland and Ireland in this manner does not form any special security against the note circulation.
Table IX gives the proportions of each part of the note circulation of the United Kingdom to the whole. The four divisions are (1) the notes of the Bank of England,
(2) the notes of the issuing banks in England and Wales, (3) of Scotland, and (4) of Ireland.
The proportions stated in decennial periods are as follows:

STATISTICS OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND.

127

TABLE No. 10.- FOUR-WEEKLY RETURNS OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND AND OF THE NOTE-ISSUING BANKS IN
ENGLAND AND WALES, SCOTLAND, AND IRELAND, 1888-1909.
Table X gives the average of the four-weekly returns of the notes of the Bank of England, the issuing banks in England and Wales, and the banks in Scotland and
Ireland held by the public. The returns referring to the Bank of England and the notes of the English country banks are arranged in four-weekly statements. This has
been done to bring these statements into correspondence with those of the banks in Scotland and Ireland, which are only issued in this form. The amount of the
increase and the decrease is also stated in all cases. I t will be observed that the increases in the Scotch and Irish issues are principally in the spring and autumn.

TABLE No. 11.—AVERAGES OF THE FOUR-WEEKLY STATEMENTS, AGGREGATED FOR THE TWENTY YEARS
1888-1907, OF THE NOTES OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND, AND OF THE NOTE-ISSUING BANKS IN ENGLAND AND
WALES, SCOTLAND, AND IRELAND.
Table 11 gives the averages of the four-weekly statements of the notes of the Bank of England and of the note-issuing banks in England and Wales, Scotland, and
Ireland, being the averages of each four-weekly return aggregated for the twenty years 1888-1907. Columns 1, 4, 7,10, and 13 give the average of the amounts of the notes of
the Bank of England, of the issuing banks in England and Wales, in Scotland and Ireland, and the total. Columns 2, 5, 8,11, and 14 show the proportion of the issue for
each period to the average of the whole. Columns 3, 6, 9, and 12 show the percentage of the amount for each division to the total amount of notes in each group of four weeks.
The proportions of the Scotch issues in the fifth, sixth, eleventh, twelfth, and thirteenth periods of four weeks in the year show the influence of the periodical payments
mentioned on the local issues. Similar influences will be observed in the case of the Irish issues in the fourth and fifth periods and in the last three periods of the year.

a These are averages of the finest rates for the class of business. The general average would be a little more, but would show a declining tendency in the twenty years.
b Purely agricultural advances never less than 5 per cent. Overdrafts rather more than advances.
c Paper of this class would be discounted at rates varying from, say, one-fourth to one-half below bank rate to upward of that rate.
d The rates for these years may safely be taken as 0.25 to 0.50 per cent above bank rate.
t Bank rate and upward.
/ A large business is done at these centers by the London bill brokers at London rates and by the local banks at those rates to one-sixteenth to one-eighth higher
0 Deposits in the Liverpool district follow London rates.
h This is a purely London business and is effected by country banks in London at London rates.

For domestic bills running at least three months upon the same place, or any other bank place.
•
,
The loan rate of the Reichsbank Is generally 1 per cent higher than its discount rate. From March, 1884, to July, 1897, loans upon imperial and state obligations
*ro given a preferential rate only one-half per cent higher than the discount rate. For the occasional loans upon precious metals Interest is reckoned at the official discoantrate.
e
In the years from 1880 to 1890, and 1892 to 1896, the Reichsbank bought especially qualified bills, for not less than 3,000 marks, which had at least six full weeks
w run, and whose Indorsement represented a significant credit, at a frequently changing preferential rate, the so-called "private rate" of the Reichsbank. In art. 7,
• * } , of the Law of June 7,1899, the Reichsbank was especially permitted to discount under the.officially published rates, but only when this rate is below 4 per cent.
^ indicated, bills have not been bought at a preferential rate since 1896.
"Theprivate discount Is granted upon s t a l l e d "prime bills-'that is to say, those of recognized solid banks and bankers. They must be payable at a bank place,
'•Mn Berlin or some other town with a branch of the ReichsbankT-They must call for at least 5,000 marks, and have at least fifty-six-days and at the most three
months to run.
«Rate for loans for a month fixed.

NOTE.—The above table presents the first attempt at a systematic statistical presentation of the capital, surplus, and deposits of all German joint s t o c k b a n ^ ? ? 0 l o t e
establishment of a uniform monetary standard throughout the Empire in 1876. There are included all of the general credit banks. Special banks, such asit e ^
banks, mortgage banks, foreign banks, fidelity companies, etc., are not Included. The tables are based upon the reports of the individual banks as they are PabJ*s theS6
the "Reichanszeiger," and these publications were but fragmentary and appeared irregularly in the earlier years, especially before 1889, and as, on the other hand, o y
original materials can be employed for the preparation of reliable statistics, the above table can make no claim of completeness for the years before 1889.
A similar table covering the years 1888-1907 was prepared for the Commission by the Deutsche Oekonomist and will be found on a later page.

a These statistics are for raw sugar up to 1896 and refined sugar since 1896. The consumption tax upon sugar was reduced from 70 to 40 francs per 100 kilograms in
(law of July 19,1880), was raised to 50 francs in 1884 (law of July 29,1884), to 60 francs in 1887 (law of May 27,1887), to 64 francs in 1897 (law of April 7,1897). Since Sept
ber 1,1903 (law of January 27,1903), the tax has been 27 francs per 100 kilograms for refined sugar.
6 In 1903 the excessive amount of imports of coffee was due to the threat of an increase in the import duties which was foreseen in the drift of the budget for 1904.
