"It Is true that the idle cash in our
vault on this date was $5,531.60. It is
also true that our cash in other banks
immediately available -was $724,703.:;,
tvlilch, together with the idle cash in
vault made $730.231.96 all reserve money.
'Our total deposits on thatdate -were
$M57,6$9.65. This shows that our' cash
reserve on that dale vas over 50 per
cent. No other bank in "Washington
had an, thing like so big a cash reserve.
Indeed, the Government requires of
.national banks only 25 per cent reserve,
and has no fixed requirements for trust
companies and salngs banks. Custom
here in the District of Columbia has
fixed, r think, 121- per cent as re
serve for trust companies and savings
"With 51s over 50 per cent cash reserve
the Munsey Trust Company made a
matchless bliowing of reserve strength.
Hut this isn't all. The Jlunsey Trust
Company owned in bonds ami securities
$1,037,552.77. which could have been con
verted into cash at a minute's notice.
Add this to the cash reserve of $7::0,
191.55, and we lrid immediately a ail
able cash to the extent of J1.76S.247.T3.
which was $310,538.0 In excess of our
total deposits. Jn other words, it was
enough to pay back cery dollar to de-I-ositors
and have left over $310,uoS.t.
"But this isn't all. either. We had in
locns and dicount $670,791 -5S all per
fectly good and bound, and on which
cssh could hae been realized at once.

"The total deposits of the Commer

ESTABLISHED 1865 I DISTILLATES
BY CABINET HEN

with his demand for social recognition.
But this is doubtful, at least as
far as the. women are concerned.
The majcrity of the wives of the
Senators are perfectly willing to al
low a "Cabinet hqstess" to precede
thtm. Mrs. gwanson, wife of Senator
Swanson of Virginia., recently said
that the Cabinet women were always
so delightful and agreeable about ev
erything, and that she, for one, did
not care whether she sat to the right
or left of one, or whether she wa3 in
front or back of one, lust as long as
she wai there. Mrs. Swanson's opin
ion is representative of tho greater
nurnbtr of 'the women in her circle.
She also added that the matter of
precedence was one of the things that
made Washington socially attractive,
but it was not of great importance in
tho soeial order of things.
Mrs. Fletcher Agrees.
Mrs. Fletcher, wife of Senator
FletcJier of Florida, the president of
the Congressional Club, expressed
herself along this line much as Mrs.
At the Congressional Club Friday,
when the first afternoon tea of the
season was held, when the official
women came together for the first
time, littlo was said along this line,
and the few who had felt hurt were
easily brought to see that in not ob
serving precedence it was a. matter
of what might be termed carelessness,
rather tha.n intent. The State De
partment seta the rule of precedence,
and is looked to for a settlement of
the question that has been brought
ur by Senatdr Bacon.
This morning several wives of the
Congressmen laughingly said that they
had agreed amonj; themselves to make
the Cabinet calls whether they vere
returned or not and what feeling may
have existed was put behind them and
forgotten. Then, when they read Mrs.
Bryan's statement they were glad they
had come to their understanding. Mrs.
Cullop, wife of Congressman Cullop of
Indiana, said that it would have made
absolutely no difference to her because
she realized that it was almost impos
sible to return all the calls and if her
rule of precedence as outlined by Sen
call was returned she would be delight
ed, if not, she woud forget it.
During recent Administrations, the
ator Bacon has not been observed and
the members of the Cabinet and their
families preceded the members of the
Senate. This seemed to have come
about by tacit consent. There never
was any hard feeling about It. How
ever, only partially was the rule broken
for the Cabinet hostesses called upon
the Senators wives first. This rule has
Thanks is duo Mrs. Bryan for her gra
cious act and there is little doubt that
when the women who are out of town
return and the social ball begins to roll
and the season is really on. there will
be no friction and the matter of preced
ence will be settled.
