HOLIDAY TRADE GIVES
STIMULUS TO BUSINESS
Bankers Report Increase in
Deposits 'and Money
in- Circulation
WILL PAY MILLIONS
S emiannu al D ivid ends to Be
Out Soon Will
Reach Large Sum
The gro-vth of the holiday trade has
given business. n stimulus during 'the
UlSt few (!ays,aDil naturally it has in
creased the amount of money in circu
lation. Bankers roport^d \u25a0yesterday.
that deposits had iricr^aaiod and that
gold was being received in larger quan
tities than at any time during tht- last
month. The banks will be. closed to
day, but will b« open as usual tomor
row. »
With the close of the month work
\u25a0will be begun on the compilation of the
semiannual dividends payable on Janu
ary l. The sum to be paid out to local
depositors will run into the millions
and Js counted on to h»lp the situation.
The banks have fortified, themselves for
this payment and expect that the in
creased amount of money thus placed in
circulation will tf-nd to hasten the
restoration of normal conditions.
An important fnnor i:i righting the
fcituation. Fay the local bankers, will be
the settlement of accounts by Pacific
coast wholesalers and retailers with the
eastern manufacturers. Thes<s settle
ments usually are made in the early
part of the year. California banks in
transmitting the amounts due wiirsim
ply draw against their balances now
retained in New York and Chicago.
Circulars have be«»n received by the
San Francisco bankers from eastern
financial institutions asking for infor
mation in regard to tho situation here.
Th^se circulars are being sent through
out the country in an effort to gain a
comprehensive view of conditions.
Application was made- at the sub
treasury yesterday for government cer-
of indebtedness to the amount
m $10,200. The sum of $75,000 was
transferred to local banks from the
east yesterday through the medium of
the subtreasury. Customs receipts
amounted to 522.31 1.
[ The bank clearing statistics show
$20,550.435.93 as the amount of San
Francisco clearings for the five day
week ending Wednesday noor.._Novt*iTi
ber. 27, as against J40.055.793.-56 for the
same period a year ago, and as against
$32,141,112.02 In 1905. The Oakland
clearings for the current week of five
days were 5936,279.28,- as against ?2,
734.104.92 a year ago.
The clearings at Los Angeles for the
current five day week amounted to $6,
065.2C9, as against $11,019,442 a year
ago. The San Jose; clearings ] for tho
same periods were, respectively, $414,
570.43 and $265,70t>.55, showing a gain
of over 54 .p*;r cent; The clearings at
Stockton for the ,five day week wero
J520.995.14, and at Sacramento $544,
541. S". The total clearings forthe five
day week in six California cities
reached $29,035,397.65.
