President Rawson Congratulates
Patrons on Best Year in
President Frederick H. Rawson, in
n circular letter to tho patrons of
tho Union Trust Company, dated De
cember 31, 1919, says:
In submitting for your examination
our statement at the closo of our lit
tleth anniversary year, it is again our
privilege to express a deep sonso of
gratitude to our depositors nnd friends
through whoso continued patronago
and loyalty wo liuvo reached n now
high mark in deposits.
Tho year 1919 will bo remembered ns
a year of fovorcd llnnnclnl and busi
ness activity. Tho readjustments up
on which wo ontornd n year ago nro
for tho most part still Incomplete. No
dcpcudablo computation has been
mado with respect to cither the quan
tity or avallublllty of tho world's
stock of basic commodities upon
which industrial production depends.
This uncertainty Invites speculation,
and, coupled with unsettled Interna
tional credit ami unsatisfactory trans
portation conditions, puts an nrtlllclnl
vnluo upon nil classes of products.
Relief is demanded from tho present
high scnlo of prices, but it scorns Im
probable that permanent rollof can bo
secured while increased wages nro de
manded for decreased production,
heavy excess profit tnxes aro loviod,
and available supplies aro always loss
thnn tho demand, compelling buyers
to bid against each other for their re
quirements. Increased production,
thrift and economy nro tho koy fac
tors to a restoration of normal condi
tions. Wo, with all tho rest of tho world,
havo taken tho year 1919 to recover
our economic and mental balanco after
tho dobauch of wnr. Perhaps wo havo
not mado as much progress ns wo
should. Perhaps, in view of tho dllll
cult!o3 accompanying our readjust
ments, wo should congratulnto our
selves that no moro of chaos has re
sulted. Wo aro still far from a nor
mal condition, and all tho wisdom, con
servatism and forbenranco of which
wo nro possessed will bo necessary to
direct our courso during 1920.
Notwithstanding tho unrest nnd un
certainty of tho times, tho bank has
concluded tho best year in its history,
both as to gain in new accounts and
in deposits. Our deposits on Decem
ber 31, 1919, wero $44,425,790.78, ns
compared with f. 14,135,310.66 on De
cember 31, 1918. Thoy havo increased
beyond tho ratio wo wish to maintain
betwoen doposits and our capital nnd
surplus for tho security of our depos
itors Tho stockholders have, thoro
fore, voted to lncrenso tho capital
Htock on January 2nd by $500,000, and
present stockholders will take the
stock on a basis that will add $500,000
to surplus account as woll. Our In
creased capital stock and surplus will
then bo $4,500,000. which allows us an
increased cnpaclty for now business
and for enlarged servlco to our depositors.

LANE TO LEAVE THE WILSON CABINET
Secretary Franklin K. Ltine of the
department of the Interior hits ninde
the following statement concerning the
report that lie tins resigned from the
cabinet: "I havo not cent n resigna
tion to tho president nor even written
It, but I do contemplate going out of
tho cabinet nnd lime withheld talking
to tbo president about It becnuso I do
not wish to mid to his burdens or wor
ries nt this time. Nor do I know
when the time will come when I can.
I havo thought It unkind to sny any
thing to him about tho innttcr nnd
that any mention ot It now by nnyono
would bo n needless iinnoynnce."
Secretary Lime's admirers nnd
their nnnie Is legion have often snld
that If ho hail been born In 1S07 In
stead of 1801 they would not havo to
hpenk of him as "Mr. Presidential Im
possibility " Tho point Is that ho wns
bom In Prince Edward Island und wns
taken to California ut tho ago of threo
by hm father.
Many thousands of imturo lovers think well of Secretary Lttno for whut
ho has done for tho national parks. Largely because of his efforts, tho
national parks havo becomo known to the American peoplo nnd nro now
regarded ns u great national economic nsset Instead of a llnnnclnl liability.
