Says T.andis, to IVeVcnt Vultures From I'iueking Bodies of the Dead. Washington. Io, 19. Mr. Landis In discussing the insurance question in the house said there were in this country 0.r00,000 policyholders: 20, policies and at least 40.000.000 people interested in insurance. The amount of insurance now in force, he said, was 12 billions of dollars.

It turns out that there was a clerical error in making up the figures on the bank deposit reports published Monday, and that instead of showing a decrease of $400,000 from the last previous state ment, the fact is that the denosits in the state have increased $l,214.630.2t making the total deposits on November 29. $119,362,058.12. This is the largest showins- of bank deposits in the history of the state, and is all the more wonderful because it comes at a time of the year when the deposits usually show a falling off. Loans show an increase of .$3,000,000 over those of three months ago. This indicates more activitv in business and more profits for the bankers. There is also an increase of nine in the number of banks since the August call. The number, state and national, now is 616 as against 607 in August. The $119,782,058.12 is divided: State angs. 57,940918.14; national banks, $61,431,139.98. A thing most gratifying to the Kan sas banking department is the fact that of the $1,214,639.24 increase in deposits, $1,103,912.11 of it was in state banks. De posits in national banks only increased $111,718.13. or abount one-tenth what the state banks did. The commissioner says this shows a growing prestige in favor of state banks. He predicts that within two years the deposits of state banks will exceed those of national in the state.
