There are now held by the govern - ment $10,021,500 of these classes of bonds as securlt> for such deposits, and the expectation of the treasury officials Is that they will be promptlv replaced by other bonds, as It Is not the Intention of the treasury to reduce the amount of money in national bank depositories. The theory is that by this change the Panama bonds will be more at tractive to banks as Investments and that they, In turn, will find their way into the treasury as security for de posits. Required by Law Secretary MacVeagh's action was taken *ln accordance with an act of congress which requires him on or be fore January 1 of each year to male a public statement of the securities required during the year for govern ment deposits In the national banks. Secretary MacVeaah directs that when further public deposits are made with banks the following named bonds, and no others, will be accepted as se curity for such deposits: United States. Philippine, Porto Rican and District of Columbia bonds at par; bonds of the Hawaiian terri tory at 90 per cent of par, bonds of the Philippine Railway company at !*> per cent of market value, but not ex ceeding 90 per cent of par. No additional deposits are, however, now In contemplation. All banks holding deposits of public funds secured by bonds other than those above named is acceptable will be required to withdraw such bonds on or before February 1, 1910, and sub stitute therefor bonds described above.
