DECLARE THE BANK
MERGER DEAL IS ON
Capitalists Say That Continental
and Bank of Commerce Consoli
dation Plans Are Completed.
In spite of positive denials by officials of
the National Bank of Commerce and the
Continental National Bank, that any nego
tiations lire on for the merging of thoso
two institutions, the report that a consoli
dation was about to be effected was given
general credence ln local financial circles
yesterday. Persons who claim to have In
side Information even go to far as to say
that preliminary details for the deal have
been completed, and that the merger will
soon be an accomplished fact
It is said that the Bank of Comrocrco
people have been quietly buying ln stock
of the Continental, and now have a con
trolling Interest In that Institution. Several
of tho largest stockholders of the latter
bank are knuwn to be ln favor of the con
solidation, and are working with the Com
merce people to bring it about The basis
on which the merger Is to be effected could
not be delinlielv learned.
The combination of those two banks
would form the largest financial Institution
west of the Mississippi Uiver. The com
bined deposits would amount to about $43,
COO.OuO; and the ciintal, surplus and undi
vided profits $10.4"0.W. Pnsident Finis E.
Marshal, president of the Con, mental Bank,
said jesterday that as far as he knew,
there was absolutely no truth ln the con
solidation report. A denial nas alio made
by the officials of the Bank of Commerce.
