"There Is No Need of Apprehen sion," Says Official Statement
Issued By Government Dep artment, Praising Institution
That Took Over Uni ted States Trust.
That the United States Treasury De
partment will stand behind financial
Washington and the merged Munsey
Trust Company and United States
Trust Company in meeting any situa
tion Is in effect the assurance given
officially by the Treasury Department
There is absolutely no need for appre
hension over the affairs of the United
States Trust, or Washington financial
affairs according to this statement. The
Munsey Trust Company is fully quali
fied and capable of handling the situa
tion and can meet any emergency. The
crisis. Treasury officials say, has been
fully met In the merger, and every de
positor wanting his money can be paid.
Cash In addition to the $1,000,000 in cur
rency already deposited with the Na
tional Banks of Washington through
the clearing house association will be
advanced If necessary to meet any un
usual demand. There Is absolutely no
reason foi any depositor to fear for
the safety of his money.
Official Statement.
An official statement from the de
partment reads:
"There is no need for apprehension.
The situation over which the depart
ment and financial interests have been
working, has been fully met by the
Munsey Trust Company. The llunsey
Trust Company was the best qualified
bank in Washington to handle the sit
uation. This company had the largest
reserve fund more cash on hand than
perhaps any other Washington insti
tution. The cash at hand is sufficient
to meet any situation, the department is
fully assured. Approval has been given
to the merger of the United States
Trust Company with the Munsey Trust
Company and every dollar is safe. One
million "dollars in cash was deposited
Tvitv tho oiovcn national banks of the
city this morning, on the receipt of-
proper security by tne .treasury, una
monev going through the clearing house
to meet the needs of the Munsey Trust
Company. This money was deposited
by the department in pursuance of the
Administration policy to aid any in

selled with the anxiously waiting officials of the Govern
ment, and announced that his company would take over
the entire establishment of the United States Trust its
assets, liabilities, paper, accounts everything. Back of
all that, Mr. Munsey placed his personal guarantee and the
pledge of his individual fortune, and heralded this an
nouncement by every means of publicity that could be
With the dawn of the new business day came the
grateful assurance that the emergency had been met, that
complete relief was assured, and that the disaster had been
The National Treasury was perfectly assured of the
complete solvency of the United States Trust Company. Its
examinations, in the utmost detail, had made this clear.
But the Bank of England itself could not stand such an in
stant demand as had been forced upon the company by the
uprising of its affrighted army of deopsitors. In such cir
cumstances, any bank must have help from other financial
quarters. In the present instance, there was no quarter to
which to turn save that which answered the final appeal.
The Treasurs cannot advance money
in such emergencies save to national
banks It was. therefore, necessary
that the collateral of the endangered
bank should, by arrangement, be turn
ed over "to the clearing house, by it
apportioned to the national banks, and
that they should, nominally, receive
the cash from Uncle Sara'f bulging
vau:ts and turn it over to the hard
pressed trust company.
, . nr rnurse. such a gigantic
transaction, involving the six millions
and more of deposits that the United
States Trust Company held, could not
be nglneered without the guarantee
of some single financial figure, that
nobody should lose one dollar. Mr.
Munsey's acUon gave that guarantee.
After he had given tho word which
placed his responsibility behind the
deal, the rest was a mere matter of de
tail, of physical transference of cash, of
closing the mlnuttlae of the transac
tion. ,
When the city learned this morning
that the business had been concluded
and that the trouble was ended, there
was rejoicing everywhere. Misgiving
and tense fear gave way to cheer and
congratulation. Mr. Munsey was rec
ocnlzert as the man who had thrown
Mmself Into the line just at the mo
ment of the highest stress and saved
the day.
Few Ask For Funds.
When the binklng houses opened
this morning, whre yesterday there
had been panic and fear among tho
llned-up depositors, there were almost
no lines at all. Cash and willing tellers

came with their pass books in hand,
onlv to turn away before they reached
the windows, satisfied with the assur

sible authority. The storm was over
as quickly as it had arisen.
Imong the 53.W) depositors of the
United States Trust Company were
about 0.00 Christmas savings accounts,
now falling due and demanding pay
ment, under their contracts, at the open
ing of the Chrihtmas shopping heason.
These aggregated about a half million
dollars, and had been one of the most
embarrassing features In the United
States Trust Company's situation.

It also was stated at the Treasury
that there Is no peril to national finances
as a result of the situation that con
fronted for two or three days past.
It is believed there will be no bad ef

surance of the day.
The Treasury Department s announce
ment of contldence and readiness to as
sist followed thorough examination of
the condition of the United States Trust
Company and the Munsey Trust Com
pany. Assistant Secretary Williams
and Acting Comptroller of the Currency
Kane were up most of the night In
touch with the negotiations, and were
glad to give official approval of the
The actual transfer of a -million dol
lars In cash from the vaults of the
United States Treasury was consum

9 o'clock. While this money was tech

Treasury Department trucks took it
direct to the main office and branch of
fices of the United States Trust com

Other Banks Apply.
Under the national 'banking laws, the
Treasury can only loun or deposit Gov
ernment funds in the national banks
when proper and approved security is
received. The presidents of the eleven
national banks were called to the con
ference last night, as wasthe clearing
house committee. They agreed to apply
for funds, furnishing the Treasury with
necessary security.
Securities were turned over b the
Munsey Trust Company. These the
natPoiSl banks then turned in to Secre

a request for Government funds. Scru

Tho sentiments with which the
business community learned that the
great emergency had been met and

an account, as a testimony of Its ap
preciation of a service, not only to
the depositors of the United States
Trust Company, but, as Mr. Louis
Kann expressed It, to every ramifica
tion of business in Washington.
On every hand was heard the com
ment that It was the greatest service
that a &lngle man had ever been able
to parform for the whole city; such
a one as has seldom been possible In
any community.
Deposits poured in from all classes
and quarters, large and small, in
variably accompanied by words of the
highest commendation
Bank Examiner Goodhart, after the
negotiations had been completed for the
absorption of the United States Trust
Company by the Munsey, made the
following statement

nothing compared with th-; great satis
faction that I hove In kr-owing that the
interests of the depositors of the bank
will be cared for and protected, and In
the further knowledge that a disaster

The negotiations last night were con
ducted at the Hotel Shorham. those
present, besides Mr. Munsey. including:
Stuart Olivier, R. Lancaster 'llllams,
of Raltimore; Wilton J. Lambert, at
torney for the Munsey Trust Company;
Richard W. Goodhart, bank examiner:
Former National Bank Examiner Hann,
Tucker K. Sands, and Assistant Secre
tary of the Treasury John Skelton Wil
liams. Mr. Munsey realized, after an examin
ation of the assets of the United States
Trust Company, that there was an op
portunity for a tremendous expansion
on the part of tho Munsey Trust Com
pany, and at the same time a chance
for a big service to the depositors of
the United States Trust Company, in
making their savings absolutely secure,
and to the banking Interests of Wash
ington. In inspiring confidence In the
Mr. .Munsey's Statement.
At the conclusion of the negotiations
Mr. Munsey issued the following state
ment: "I arrived from New York at 4:30
this afternoon on a hurry call, having
been summoned after my representa
tives had been In a night-and-day con
ference in the hope of being of service
to the depositors of the United States
Trust Company and the banking and
financial community of Washington as
well. I Immediately went into confer
ence and as a result at 10 o'clock last
night we reached an agreement with
authorized representatives of the board
of the United States Trust Qompany
By which the Munsey Company takes
over bodily and entire the United States
Trust Company.
"This means that the llunsey Trust
Company guarantees all the deposits of
tho United States Trust Company, and
pledges all of Its resources to this end.
Our $2,000,000 capital means a J4,0Oo.O00
capital stock liability, and, of course,
we have aU the assets of the United
States Trust Company, which will eas
ily amount to more than the total de
posit line of that company. With the
entire assets of the United States Trust
Company and the assets and capital
stock liability of the Munsey Trust
Company, there should be an Instanta
neous cessation of all unrest.
"Deposits with the United States' Trust
are now as safe as if they were with
the Government, I might add that the
Treasury Department has co-operated
in even- way and has offered to pro
vide all needed currency for any and
all emergencies.
"I have done this thing to be of real
service to Washington In a crisis. By
averting what might have been a seri
ous financial disaster, I take It that my
work has been a real service. In turn I
ask the heartiest co-operation of every
one. whether they are depositors with
the United States Trust or not. I have
thrown all my resources into the breach
and the least Washlngtonlans can do is
to give me their willing, hearty and en
thusiastic co-operation. '
Find Rough Going.
The United States Trust Company was
organized Just prior to the panic of 1307,
vhlfh It weathered, though the go'.ng
was a little rough at times. Eldridge
E. Jordan became Interested in tne
company three years ago. becoming
president, with Charles W. Warren as
vice president. A little more than two
years ago there were internal dissen
sions, which resulted In Mr. Jordan s
resignation, but In a short time he ob
tained the control and again assumed
the presidency. .
Then began the rapid expansion of
the company. The International Bank
ing Corporation was absorbed early in
191i followed by the purchase of the
Merchants and Mechanics' Savings
Bank, with main offices at Pennsyl
vania avenue and Tenth street, and
branches at Seventh and G streets,
Twentleh street and Pennsylvania ave
nue. Connecticut avenue near L street,
and the aMrkct branch, subsequently
BEa'rly in 1913, the Fourteenth Street
Savings Bank, at Fourteenth and U
streets, was bought.
When Lawrence O. Murray retired
from the Comptrollership, he became
President of the United States Trust
Company. Mr. Jordan becoming chair
man of the board, but since his connec
tion with the institution he has been
able to give It but little of his time,
owing to poor health.
The Munsey Trust Company was or
ganized last spring with a capital of
$2,000,00. and a surplus of J1S2.6M. It
has grown rapidly, and its last report
to the Comptroller showed deposits of

Early this morning while many of the
bank officers of the city were tossing
on their beds some of them sleepless
through the entire night, because of

financial calamity, while others were
having troubled dreams of lines of half-
crazed depositors waiting In front of
bank doors, demanding their money, the
telephones I nthe rooms of a dozen of
the most Important In the city tinkled,
