THE POSTAL SAINOS BANK.
w Establishment of These Banks in Ac.
cordance With Recommenda
tion in 1909-The Object.
The fact that the Newberry postof
e fice was chosen out of all the second
d class postoffices in the State for a
a- postal savings bank is a matter in
which 'he people of Newberry take
considerable pride. Fourth Assistant
i- k-ostmaster General DeGraw attend
ed the meeting of the State Rural Let
)l ter Carriers association in Newberry
1- this year, and while here he remark
on ed upon the thrift of the people of
af this section of the State, and he must
s, have been impressed with the manner
In which the affairs of the Newberry
ie postoffice are conducted. The post
is master here is Col. C. J. Purcell, and
e he has an invaluable assistant in As
r- sistant Postmaster Chas. A. Bowman.
y. The establishment of postal savings
r- bank was recommended in the annual
in report of Postmaster General Hitch
Id cock for the fiscal year ending June
30, 1909. In that report, speaking of
d, these postal savings banks, Postmas
k tar General Hitchcock said: "It is be
r. lieved that they would prove here, as
a- they have elsewhere, an inestimable
k, benefit not only to those who directly
ie use them, but also to the general bus
iness community, including the bank
le 'ing interests." "Postal depositories,"
et said the postmaster general, "would
it benefit rather than injure our regular
1 banking interests. No instance is of
is record where such a result has not en
E- sued from the establishment of these
1- depositories in foreign countries."
y Reviewing the history of these deposi
t tories in other countries, the postmas
o ter general continued: "Thus there is
n little reason growing out of exper
k ience for the fear that postal savings
d. banks would enter into hurtful com
>t petition with the regular banks. The
le limitation placed on the net amount
1- to be deposited by any individual and
'e the provision for redepositing in reg
Y, alar banks, together with the natural
:o restriction of postal deposits by rea
te son of the low rate of interest paid,
te would render the relation of the pos
2. tal depositories to the regular banks
y one of helpful cooperation."
I- The postoffice authorities here have
as yet received no notice as to when
steps will be taken to establish the
postal savings bank here.
