New York, March 31.—The Financier
says this week:
Last week's official statement of the
New York Associated banks showed as
the most striking feature a much smaller
loss of cash than was generally estimated
on the basis of the traceable movements
of money during the week. The discrep
ancy between the maximum and estimated
loss of about $0,000,000, and the officially
reported decrease of $3,427,700, may have
been in part due to $1,000,000 receipts of
gold from abroad, and partly to the
unrecorded deposits in cash In the banks
for disbursement for interest which off
set losses to some extent; also to trans
fers to those institutions by trust com
panies and to other movements inci
dent to the close of the first quarter
of the year. Deposits decreased $8,780,
800, which was $1,523,400 greater than
the sum of the contraction In loans, and
the loss of cash, consequently the state
ment failed to balance. As a result of the
decrease In deposits the required reserve
was diminished by $2,195,200 so that sur
plus reserve was reduced by $1,232,500 to
$5,131,275. Computed on the basis of de
posits, less those of $11,738,900 public
funds, the surplus is $S.006,000. Loans were
contracted by $3,829,700, though an expan
sion was looked for because of temporary
loaning of funds deposited preparatory to
the payment of April Interest. The loans
were $21,213,400 in excess of deposits. The
dally average of bank clearings for the
week was nearly $238.000.000, against $278,
000,000 in the previous week.
An active day yesterday closed the
week In the local real estate market. The
past week lias been a good one when
the unfavorable weather which prevailed
throughout the week Is taken Into con
The demand for well located residence
property has been unusually strong while
perhaps the most noticeable feature of
the wok was the activity of the suburban
realty markets. All grades of local real
estate are selling at good prices, which
are much inclined to a higher level. A
local authority stated that a much higher
level would be reached during the coining
summer months.
There were four deeds filed In the
probate clerk s office yesterday recording
the transfer of about $22,<XX) worth of lo
cal real estate from Dennis Carr and
wife to Joseph T. Beasley. They were
as follows: Parts of lots 9 and 10 in
block 79, the consideration being $0,000;
parts of lots 8 and 10 in block 79. the
consideration for which was $6333; parts
of lots 9 and 10 in block 79, the considera
tion being $5333, and parts of lots 8 and
10B in block 79, the consideration for
which was $3333.
Other papers were filed in the probate
clerk's office yesterday for the following
transactions in local real estate Involving
amounts of $1000 or more:
