Bank Talks The total loans and discounts of all banks and trust companies on June 30th, 1920, was $30,891,693,000, an increase of $5,805,736,000 over Jnne 30th, 1919. These figures are offered for the consideration of the persons who have talked about the coutraction of credit or who hold that credit should be granted more freely. The waste of war and the era of extrava gance following, with immense amounts of money and credit involved in the buying of auto mobiles and their upkeep, may be given as the chief causes of the present financial stringency, in addition to local agricultural conditions. With the balance of trade returniog in favor of farming communities we will see a return to prosperity. No community can be prosperous that buys more than it sells. Credit as represented by notes and other promises to pay lias been overworked. A change to the solid ground of business based on present ability, although painful, is absolutely necessary. Better have a smaller but safe business. A good rule is never to borrow or owe for more than one-third of the capital involved in' any transaction or enterprise. ! i I BANK OF OROFINO 1 I Largest and Strongest Bank in Clearwater V'alley. i j I quoted at Orofino at $!.tG for Mar- 1 t til ft $1.1 S for Blue Stem, For- ! ty-fuld, etc. The lowest price quot 1 i-(i here during tlie season was $1 15 while the highest was $2.35 first of tile season.
