A young and prosperous bank is the Southern California National, of this city. It has been doing business about three years, and in that short time has become a strong institution. With a capital of $200,000 and a surplus and undivided profits of $25,000, the business of the \bank has steadily increased, and although .there has bean a decrease this last year in almost every line of business—banking as well —the business of this bank has steadily increased all the year, till it closes the year with an increase in vol ume of business and deposits of fully thirty per cent., and that in the face of the fact that several new banks have opened in its immediate vicinity. The bank has in its business arragements kept full pace with its growth, having extended its line of correspondents go as to make sure and quick transfers of money and collections. This bank was tbe highest bidder for the city bonds in October last, buying $100,000 of the 5 per cent, school bonds at 6100 per cent, premium. It is centrally located, in the Nadeau block, southwest corner of First and Spring streets, and its officers and directors are strong, conservative men such as guarantee sound and conserva tive banking. In its list of stockholders are many wealthy men. Its officers are: L. N. Breed, President; Wm. F. Boeby sbell, Vice President; C, N. Flint, Cashier; the Directors Are General David Runick, capitali t; C. E. Day, pianos and organs; E. C. Bosbyshell, capitalist; H. T. Newall, capitalist; Thos. Go3S, City Brick Co.; M.

Tne Lender of All tne Financial Institutions. Page 15 of this issue of the Hbbald contains a statement of the affairs of the Farmers and Merchants Bank of Los Angeles, as they stood at the close of business, December 11,1889. The figures speak for themselves. They are large enough to attract universal attention without any loud proclaiming of their significance. There is in fact only one bank in the State that takes rank above this one. That is the Bank of California of San Francisco. Assets that crowd Close on to $4,000,000 are something whose meaning cannot well be missed. The Farmers and Merchants Bank was founded February 12, 1871. Its career presses closely upon two decades in ex tent. In all that time there have been few legitimate enterprises eet up in this part of California to which the Farmers and Merchants Bank did not lend its powerful aid. Its first President was Mr. I. W. Hellman, and he has been at its head at all times since. Nor was this his first connection with the bank ing business of the city. For ten years before the Farmers and Merchants was founded he had been the leading spirit in the banking circles of the city. To the I new concern he brought a mind already well trained in all the intricacies of banking, and a wisdom ripe with clcse contact in the way of personal experi ences with most of the varied affairs of life. No concern ever had from any man attention surpassing that which Mr. Hellman lavished on this bank. Care less of himself he gave to the interests of the stockholders and depositors of this bank such devotion as few men ever gave to any causo. He never spared himself in any respect, but worked with a singleness of purpose which only great minds can bring to bear on their wort. It is no wonder that under such super vision the bank grew and prospered in a manner before unknown. All the details of this business were familiar to the lead ing mind, and no mistakes were ever ma le,no wild risks ever taken and no seri ous losses ever sustained in the wonderful career of this marvelous financial institu tion. It has at all times been a bulwark of strength to the legitimate interests of this section, stretching out a willing hand to help every enterprise tbat seemed so founded as to give reasonable hope of success and of such a nature as to be of benefit to the public generally. After thirty years of active service as a banker in the city Mr. Hellman is still at the head of the bank, as devoted to its interests and as watchful of its details as ever, and with that ripe wisdom engendered of long experience which ensures the further growth and permanent success of the great bank. Elepern Brought Back. Detective Bosqui arrived at the City Jail at 5:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon, with J. C. Day and Miss Elva Parkins, the couple who eloped from the residence of the girl's parents on Friday night last, and were arrested in San Bernardino on Saturday by Sheriff Seymour.
