The Barmats are indebted to this
bank to the amount of 12,000,000
marks, out of 40,000,000 they have

of posts and telegraphs loaned them
14,000,000 from government funds,

The government’s credits are de
fended on the ground that the min

deficits by loaning out its idle capi

Insurance Bureau also loaned the
Barmats several million marks.
