profits by the First National Bank of
Xf* York arar* recounted to-day by
?George F R.dter. chairman of the
r.oatd of diiectors of the bank, aa a
witness before the Hons' matte) trusj
committee. Mr. Bak< r furnished the
committee with record* showing that
since its organization In US* with *
capitalization of the bank has
made profits amounting to more than
In the four years since im*. Mr.
Baker told the committee, the bank
had paid dividends ,>f 2M per cent, or
?tor* than twice tbe total capitaliza?
tion, which is now $111.ono.000. When
the capital was lt?cr*a**< la that
amount in 1!?01 a special dividend of
|S.M?,aM was declared. Mr. Baker
said, to enaOlo the stockholders te>
take up the additional investment. In
IMC, In order to provide $1".000.0*0 of
capital for the organization of the*
r'irsi Securities Company to take over
the business, "which the bank eaoM
n-:l do under the law." Mr. Baker said,
?a special dividend of flo.OOn.OOO was
<-?'?; a red. ' This was in addition to tho
regular yearly dividends.
IIa? Paid afsySM I'er Cent.
Samuel t'ntermyer. counsel for tho
1 ommittee. from the figures supplied!
by Mr. Baker, calculated that since he
assumed the presidency of the First
National ,n 1\;:; that institution has
paid dividends of 1 s..r.:,o per cent on.
Its original capitalization.
Mr. Baker flatly opposed the sug?
gestion made by Mr I'ntermyer that
national banks be required to mako
I public their assets, in order that de?
positors and stockholders might know
the nature of securities held by the
banks, the witness declaring that he.
saw- no possible good that could come
of such a provision. That there is no
impropriety in one man holding dl
lectorahips in two or more potentially
l onipetlve hanks, railroads or iridus
j tHal incorporations was another stand
taken bjr Mr Baker. Mr. t'ntermyer
i ..viewed with him a long list of rail
i cads It) which he was a director, somo
of which the lawyers held were po?
tentially competing lines. Mr. Buker
? c.-lared that It was rather an ad?
vantage to hold such directorships be?
cause ?differences between the com?
panies can thus be readily adjusted '*
''Such a situation.' he continued, "is
often beneficial to all parti ea con?

Mr. Baker did not approv.- of tho
