T%e Fost-Office Savings Banks of England.
r. Gregory, in the Independent.] I
England claims the honor of the in
vention of Penny Postage and of the
_ Postoffice Savings Bank, two of the
greatest boons that modern govern
nentshave bestowed upon their peo
pies. The cheap postage system has
iade its way to all civilized lands,
acilitatir the intercourse, and min
istering immeasurably to the business,
. itelligence and happiness of the people
and helping on civilization itself.
4< The Postal Savings Bank, also if not~
os equally the friend of the people, has
" spread from Great Britain to the Aus
tralian States, Canada, France, Italy,
Austria, Holland, Denmark, Sweden,
Cape Colony, New Zealand and Japan;
and every year fresh delegations from
. other countries visit the central Savings
'Bank of London to investigate and
learn how to introduce the system. The
Post-office Reports of 1884 and 1887
mention that applications for informa
tion were received those years from the
United States. Everywhere they are
said to be working with a success that
proves how close they are to the peo
-ple's wants. The French Minister of
Posts and Telegraphs says they have I
: succeeded beyond expectation in
France, and reports that "at the close I
of 1885 (the fourth year) there were in
w that country 692,582 depositors with a
balance to their credit of 154,155,572
- francs," or nearly 30,000,000 dollars.
The superiority of the system over that
of the common savings banks nas now
been thoroughly demonstiated, and its
immense value to the peopie, as well as
its popularity wherever established,
'must sooner or later lead to its intro
duction in all civilized countries.
It was started in Great Britain amidjf
the competition of a multitude of pri- r
vate savings banks, Znd of friendly,
utual benefit and trade societies
which served as savings banks in some
degree for their- members; but on De
cember 31st, 1886, at the end of twenty
..five yeas from its start, the number of
accounts of depositors remaining open
was 3,73l,421, and the amount to their
credit was 50,874,338 pounds sterling,
while the value of the Government se
- curities held by the bank was ?52,054,
052, showing a surplus of profits of over
8,000,000 which goes to the payment of
the national debt.
Chancing to be domiciled with an
old and prominent officer of the Cen
tral Bank, I have found opportunity
to learn something of the operation and C
progress of these banks in England, and
2of their general effects upon the people
and their economies. Some of this in-I
formation will be acceptable to many
readers who are interested in the great I
social problems of the times.
The chief advantages of the Postalr
-Savings Bank over common savings
a nstitutions are: (1) The greater facili
ties for depositing and withdrawing I
,funds, the depositor in Great Britain a
being able to make his deposits at any '
one of the 8,500 post-offices having
savings offices attached and towithdraw
his money at any other where he may
chance to be. (2) The facilities provided (
for the deposit of very small sums.t
Printed slips are to be had at any post- s
office on which the depositor can stick t
postage stamps till he gets a shilling's t
worth, the smallest sum for which an
acount will be opened. This helps
even the poorest, and mere children to C
save their pennies and become depos- I
itors. (3) The absolute security of the I
deposits; the Government itself being
responsible for their safe keeping and C
for the interest on them. This crowning e
advantage is so great as to oversbiadow l
all arguments and claims which can be a
made for the private banks. The pri- I
vate savings institutiois have been C
able, however, .till lately to compete t
with the Post-office by investing theirt
funds in Government stock and claim- E
ing thus to give public security to their(
depositors; and by offering a higher 1
rate of interest than the 2.) per cent.
paid on deposits in the Post-office Bank. s
Since the recent act of Parliament re
duing the interest on the national f
debt to 2.1 per cent., the private banks
are no longer able to overbid the Postal
Banks, and their gradual absorption by I
the Post-office, which has been going
on for years, has been much accelerated.1
My official friend tells me that four I
-private savings banks have turned over
their business to the Post-office withina
the last fortnight, and he counts that
the 400 still remaining will be taken in t
during the next ten years.
The perfect security of deposits is not
only attracting private depositors, but
friendly and benevolent societies and1
Trades Unions are asking to be allowed 1
to deposit their funds: and more than1
two thousand such societies gained1
such permission in 1886, the last year
reported. The Penny Banks, which
are doing such good work in the schools
in teaching children economy and the
habit of saving, are also allowed to
make deposits; and out of 419 applica
tions received in the eighteen months
before the closing of the last published
report no less than 202 were by School
Penny Banks. The value of these
banks, thus aided and stimulated, is
expressed by the manager of a mission
shool, who, writing for a further sup
of deposit books, said: "The people
find more than ever the value of the
Penny Bank; it has turned our school
from a ragged one into a respectableI
Besides this work of saving the peo
pie's pittances, the Post-office Savings
Band has assumed several other func
tions in aid oi its depositors. As no one
is allowed to deposit more than ?30
($145.50) in one year, nor to have more
than ?200 ($970) on deposit drawing
interest at one time, the bank acts as
agent for its depositors to invest their
savings for them in Government stock,
investing not less than ?10 at a tinme
nor more than ?300 for one person. The
last report shows 35,305 investment ac
ounts, the total amount of money in-]
vested being ?845,606 sterling.
>It also issues annuities or insures the
lives of its depositors when desired.
T he annuities are restricted to the ex-]
+mme f?and ?100 and the life in
urance cannot be for less than 45 nor sou
nore than ?100. As these policies are C
ecured by the Government, there can Cla
)e no losses by the failures of insurance C
The extent of the Pcst-office Savings lin1
3ank business may be judged by the, E
act stated by the Postmaster-General or 1
hat one in eight of the entire popula- F
ion of England and Vales were de- cou

vhere this is written, the depositors Gec

rom the Postal Savings Banks of the
'rance, Austria and Italy, are equally Gre
mphatic as proof of the popularity and 1]
tility of the system. The nu'mber of ton,
lepositors and the amount of the de- I]
osits in all the countries in which the frie
ystem has been introduced are steadily i
,nd rapidly increasing, the facility of I
naking deposits and the absolute se- nia
urity felt by the depositors serving as I
owerful incitements to the spirit of L
These facts, intereing r.s they are in Le
hemselves, picturing to us the patient iMa
oil and the often heroic self-denial of X
niions of the thoughtful poor seeking Ma
o lay up something against the sure '
oming day of need, would nevertheless Du:
ose their profoundest significance if 3
aken apart from the industrial and opi
ocial conditions which have rendered pos
iabits of economy and saving doubly C
mportant to the laboring classes. wai
dodern industrialism has made the the
>eriods of non-employment frequent dia
and certain. The enoimous productive C
>ower of men massed in armies of la- Pri
>or, furnished with machinery which setl
nakes one man equal to ten (often a I
iundred), with the division of labor to s
arried to its utmost, has rendered the sea
>eriodic glut of goods and failure of noi
vork inevitable. and the idle times I
nore frequent and protracted. The of t
utile attempts of manufacturers to ace
>vercome the effects of this overdoing (
)y cheapening goods through reduc- the
ions of wages, and the frequently vain inl:
fforts of the men to recoil from the s
ulf by "striking" to force wages up ter,
gain-the burning contentions of I
apital and Labor out of which revo- fro,
utionary Socialism has taken its rise- Ep
iavemade only more apparent the in- uni
lispensable need of "savings for the '
ainy day." Whatever other remedies of ]
ociety may ultimately find for the j
niseries and perils of its most numer- of
us class from the overwork of to-day
,nd the enforced idleness of to-morrow,
t is clear that at present the hope of
he poor must rest either on begging or
>n saving; on the charity which t
reakens and degrades, or on the pru- m
lence which elevates and strengthens. Sta
.nd hence the Postal Savings Bank, a dOL
avings bank convenient to all and se- the
ure beyond question, instead of being, det
s it might once have been considered,
doubtful stretch of governmental
ower, ought to be counted as part of eHe
ovenmental duty--a maueowieRe
~ubic precaution and of national se
urity. If the "Red Terror," which
nany predict and all thoughtful men me:
nore or less fear, is to be lessened or on
avoided, the millions must be saved is I
rom the starvation which makes the
;entlest men savage, and forces theA
nost peaceful into revolution.
It is obvious that the great and now
ecessary work of stimulating and pro- cou
ecting the people's savings cannot be mi
one by egrporations. If they would ate
hey cannot give the depositors absolute ei
ecurity for their savings, and cannot ~
heefone inspire the confidence which 'r
be Postal Savings Bank so fully gives. dn
his then is one of those great public saii
works which only the Government can I
an do, and which a Government of the ease
eople, by the people and for the peo- tion
le" may wisely undertake..a
These banks are not a panacea. No a
ne claims that they will cure all social teed
vils; tho in stimulating the sense of 2
>rudence and the desire for gain as well
s by awakening the feelings of pro
rietorship and independence, they
heck extravagance and diminish in- sees
emperance. The Bank Account starts [e
he feeling of personal dignity, and Co
:ives the man a stronger interest in the It is
lovernment to which he has intrusted .1
us money. But while thus benefiting ers
nany, the institution, it is true, injures Am
ome by over-stimulating the love of
:ain, and making them misers. My
riend tells me of cases of persons who T
iave large sums in the savings bank and Bru
ho still resort to begging or the work- a'
touse rather than touch their savings.PI
n one case a man and his wife wvent r
nto the workhouse for the winter, and L
ived at the expense of the rate payers,
hile the man had ?190 and his wife
180 in the Post-office Savings Bank.
hen the Relieving Officer has reason
o suspect such frauds he has the right m
o ask information of the bank authori- el
is, and if the parties have money on ve
ikposit, to demand of the bank the pay- n
nent of their board bills. Exept when a]
us asked for by public authority for b
he purposes of justice, every deposi-d
or's account is kept secret, to save the
oor and inexperienced from imnpor- g
unity and fraud. e
Barring these cases of miserly abuse, B
here can be no doubt that the entire
nluence of the Postal Savings Bank isa
;hol.esonme and good. The four mil- c<
ions of people in the British Isles who P
2ow hold accounts in the Post-Office h<
avngs Bank are not only happier in

urer for the self-denial they are led to

T. My fall stock for men, youths and boys will

I recoanize that fit and style are very in

qualities in all my goods.
It is no idle boast to say that my stock of F
clothing will be found as perfect in these nec- l
essary qualit.its as the custom-made gar- ri
ment.s. The time was when ready-n-ade
clothing betrayed in its make the fact that it Si

long past, and customers who have tried my

eral that makes a great saving on the tailor's bill. o

far to cover deficiencies, the trade is a stecdy
one and is not limited by the seasons. I
