BANK EXPERT SAYS
BUSINESS IMPROVES
"The present improved business
conditions are reflected in the state
ments of April 4, rendered by our
banks in compliance with the official
calls of the comptroller of the cur
rency and state bank examiner," said
John E. Price, the bank examiner, yes
terday.
"That we have not stood still is evi
denced by a gain in deposits of over
$90,000 each business day since the
last call. February 4, or a total of ov
er $4,770,000 during the period.
"In 1903 the total deposits were
$20,895,000. Five years later they had
grown to $63,297,000, and on the fourth
of this month they were practically
$82,800,000. An enviable record, isn't
it?
"Due credit should be given to the
banks Tor contributing to the improv
ed business conditions. By increasing
their loans $4,200,000 during the last |
two months they have given concrete
evidence of their faith in the stability
of general business.
"Personally, 1 believe these bank
statements show Seattle is entering
upon a new era of great activity."?
Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
