A MAGNIFICENT SHOWING.
The Deposits in Local Banks Indicate
a Prosperous Community.
As we read over the advertise
ment of the First National Bank of
this city, appearing on page 10 of
this issue, we were struck with the
extent of the deposits shown, which
in themselves would not indicate a
.debt-ridden community, although
we have still another depository of
no small proportions which adds to
the figures of total deposits in local
institutions a neat sum.
The record shows that in the First
•National the deposits at the time Of
making the statement were $413,310.
46, while a statement from Cashier
Peet, of the American Exchange
Bank, is that his institution is
possessed of deposits to the amount
of $156,409.12, with loans outstand
ing of $115,338.61.
The aggregate of these sums Of
deposit shows a total deposit in lo
cal banking houses of the enormous
amount of $509,719.58, a most credit
able showing alike for the wealth bf
the community and their faith in
their banking institutions.
The First National-Bank was or
ganized a&a private bank in 1803,
opening its doors on March 1st -of
that year, becoming a National
bank on January 1st, 1903. The
American Exchange Bank was or
ganized last spring, opening itsv
doors on -March 9th laat. The offic
ers and directors of the two institu
tions appear in their respective ad
vertisements in the eolums of the
^Enterprise the character and well
known business stability of the men
interested in either being sufficient'
guarantee* of the reliability of the A
institutions. That the people of
the city so regard them ia assuredly
evidenced by the confidence ex-,
pressed in placing suCh deposits at
the city this
Important Business Change.
On Saturday last Frank Carlson
purchased from A. Gunderson his
interest in the Virginia Mercantile
Co., and will in future "go it alone."
Since the establishment of the
business the gentlemen have ap
parently enjoyed a liberal patron
age, to which Mr. Carlson will en
deavor to add.
The change came as a surprise to
the many friends of the firm. Mr.
Gunderson left on Saturday, and it
is said will make his future home
in the Twin Cities.
