or more than double the amount of the
savings distributed last month. Tho
number of depositors is nearly double.
"The most popular savings feature I
have ever heard about." Is the enthusi
astic way In which an official described
the Christmas savings club.
Washington's batik clearings for the
week ended January 2 show an Increase
of 20.7. per cent, as compared wtih the
corresponding week a year ago. Tho
clearings were $6,417,000. Richmond's
clearings were almost Uie some, $6,410,
000, but the Virginia cltj-s increase was
at the rate of 48.1 per cent. Bank clear
ings in the United States aggregated
$3,055,300,000. as against $2,928,3S2.00U the
corresponding week a year ago.
Activity in Washington Gas shares
was the feature of the meeting of tho
Washington Stock Exchange today.
Starting with the sale of four small lots
of the stock at ifi, a quotation lot sold
at an eighth less, another at still an
eighth, less.jmd then three quotation
lots sold at S53. three-eighths 4ess than
the llrst price. Offering at the last
price and bidding of SoVi failed to bring
out any more trading.
A quotation lot of Railway common
brought iSVi. but further offering to buy
or sell at the same price brought out
no stock. .
The trading was in good volume to-'
day. except for the bond list. Fifty
shares of Citizens' Savings Bank stock

There was a large increase of busi
ness failures in the District of Colum
bia last year, as compared with the
year 1911. according- to R. G. Dun &
Co. The number of failures was eighty
nine, as against fifty-two in 1911. and
the liabilities reached $567,230 in 1S12. as
against $660,556 in 1911.
In the whole country there were 15.452
failures during the year, which, with
one exception, is the largest number re
corded since 1S33; the exception was In
l&OS. following the panic of 1907, when
there were 15,690 defaults. During j912
thero were about 2.CO0 more failures
than In the preceding year. Bnd this,
unless It can be explained, is in direct
antagonism to the plain evidences of
agricultural and Industrial prosperity
and mercantile activity during the year.
The increase in the number of defaults,
however, must be compared with the
number of concerns. Individual or cor
porate, engaged In business, and the
number of such concerns expands
every year and Is now greater than ever
before recorded. This comparison shows
that the percentage of failures In 1912.
while considerably larger than in the
preceding three yeara Is by not means
unprecedented, having frequently been
approacned anu exceeaea in tne nast.
Still, It is about the average of what
mav be termed good years.
Of the total number of failures for
the year. 15.452, with liabilities of $203.
117,391, the manufacturing division re
ported 3.S39 suspensions as against 3.502
the J ear before, 3,2M In 1S10. 3,030 in 1903
and 3,827 In 1903. Tills somewhat un-taiu-taciory
showing as to numbei,
however, lb pattlallj offset by a slightly
more favorable comparison of liabili
ties, which aggregated $SC,719.S32 a
against $S7.371.C23, ;SS,916,fiS5. I54.716.54S
and $96,829,015. respectively, for the pre
vious four iears.
The showing for the banks is better.
Banking failures were only seventy-nine
last year, as compared with 107 in 1911
and the liabilities decreased from $25,
511.60S in 1911. to $24,219,322 in 1912.
