HOW THE NATIONAL BANKS AKE
TAXED.
1 " ,altlM!
l . on ol Oongrcss will
out ««in« attempt* at legislation for
against tile national banks
I <)f rH ,, .i,,. ...
«mrse llio contributions exacted
I co " le »*nd«p tliree heads, national, State
i and municipal. To the Federal (iovern.
; ment the national lianks turn over every
5 ' ear ' i"semi-annual installments, a duty
, °|. 0,le . P ur c «''t- upon the average amount
ol their circulating notes outstanding_
I N'T ar " •*> "•<|ulrcd to pay one-haff of
oik, per cc*nt. upon the average sum of
their deposits and a like rate upon the
mean amount of their capital stock not
l{iv«»ted in United States bonds. Now,
the aggregate of such duties paid to the
Commissioner of Internal Revenue since
these institut if um warn
institutions wero
present
er with
pass
or
organized liait
reached by July 1 of the present year
upward of $80,000,000. One object in
imposing these taxes was to make the
system self-sustaining, so far a- cost to
the Oovernment was concerned ; but as
a matter of lact the entire outlay for the
olliee of Hie Comptroller of the Currency,
from its establishment until date, has
fallen short of *6,000,000; that is to say,
it represents about a twentieth of the
sum turned into the Treasury by the
national lianks. Nor is it to be
looked that the whole of this large
lias been collected without expense to
the Government.
From the returns made by tlgi national
hanks during a lerm of years following
1870 we can frame a trustworthy esti
mate of the entire contributions levied
for State purposes within that period.—
The aggregate sum thus paid cannot he
placed lower than a hundred millions,
and we observe further, that while the
ratio of the State tax to the capital stock
of the hank was lower than that of the
Federal impost up to 1812, yet since that
year the reverse is true. At present the
whole burden laid on these Institutions
by the national and State Governments
represents on an average three and a
third per cent, of their joint capital. And
here it may lie interesting to note some
of the dilTerences in percentage corres
ponding to geographical divisions. It is
In the States of New York and Nebraska
that the hanks are most heavily taxed,
the ratio of ini|K>sts to capital there
reaching four and six-tenths per cent.—
Then come the so-called Granger States,
where the rates vary from lour and a
third to three and a third per cent., and
next New Jersey, where the ratio of tax
ation to capital is almost identical with
the last named figures. Distributing
country into large sections, we find
|>erccntage of tax to hanking capital lar
gest in the Middle and Western States,
being severally stated at three and six
tenths and tliree and five-tenths percent.,
while It only reaches two and eight
tenths in New England, and but two and
seven-tenths per cent, in the Southern
Slates. Taking the whole country to
gelher, the ratio of Stale imposts to the
capital stock of national hanks during
the year 1811 was one and nine-tenths
per cent. In other words, the sum levied
for State purposes about onc-tliird larger
than that paid into the Federal Treasury.
The remarkable inequalities in the
rates of taxation laid on hanking capital
to different municipalities may he illus
trated by returns from some of the prin
cipal cities. For example, in New York
city the total sum drawn from the hanks
for all fiscal purposes actually represents
live per cent, of their united capital. In
Cincinnati llie ratio is four and six
tentlis per cent., in Milwaukee it is live
per cent., in Chicago five and eight-tenths
por cent., and in Albany it touches the
surprising figure of six and two-tenths
per cent. Turning from ratio to aggre
gates, we find that the hanks of New
York city alone paid in the shape of
taxes more than three million dollars
during the year 1877. One effect of these
high rates of taxation may be discerned
in the reduction of capital and surplus
by the New York city hanks. The total
decrease which has occurred during the
last live years, if we include the national
and State hanking institutions in this
municipality, falls hut little short of
lliirty million dollars.—-V. l r . Sun.

A THREE MILLION ESTATE.
Abovt forty yeai8 aeo a man named
John C. CJaik, a poor farmer of Indiana,
,'orse each

his family, consisting of a wife and two
little girls, and striking toward the Wa

From New Orleans he drifted to Texas,

by his family until they heard of his
death, which occurred about fifteen

both of his children had married, one re

died he owned an estate in land and
money, valued at something near $3.

counties, which, in the absence of any
known heirs, escheated to the State. Bo
gus heirs presented themselves, however,
ami instituted suits, and it was a news
paper account of this litigation that first
led to the discovery' by one of Clark's
daughters, Mrs. Marinda Buckles, of
Hardin county, Ky., that he had left an
estate. She put the case in the hands of
her lawyers, and is confident ot securing
with her sister the property, which is
