One of the functions of A Bank s Capital is to protect its depositors from possible loss; therefore the larger it is, the greater protec tion the depositors have. This bank has a Capital of .... 200,000.00 Surplus Fund of . . 50,000.00 Undivided Profits . . 25,000.00 Additional Shareholders Liability . . . . 200,000.00 ' A TOTAL OF 475 000.00 This means that this bank must lose prac tically half a million dollars before its depo sitors could lose a cent.

The Republic says: Definite Announcement was made thin morning by Charles Heath of tin Yakima Valley bank that within a short time the bank of North Yakima will be conducting clearing house op erations. The bankers have consider ed the feasibility of establishing a clearing house here for some time and final arrangements have been com pleted. The rear mom of the Yakima Na tional bunk will be fitted up for the clearinghouse. A manager of the sys tem will be elected at the next meet Ins; of the bankers. Ml naliy Rflparta to Be Made. This announcement means progress In the business affairs of Worth Yakl H mm. It means that each day a report ); will be issued by the manager, stating the clearings of that day. Kach hank will send Its clearings to the house and the aggregate amount of all the banks will constitute the clearings for tnat day. 1 This svstem is. as Is known, carried on In all the large cities of the United Stateh. North Yakima will be one of the few towns of Its bIzc of the country that can boast of a Hearing house. That fact certainly Is a splendid bar- ometer of prosperity In Itself. The system will rate this city with such cities as Seattle. Portland, Spokane, and Tacoma. and ts reports wlH be published with theirs. There are periodicals published and circulated through the country which devote their pages to bank clearings, and the comparing of them with the different cities. All banks or associ ated banks, are dealt with In this man ner and North Yakima will, of course, be rated among the prosperous and thrifty associations of America. Manager t to Do Chown. Everything is In readiness for the , . work to begin. All that remains to be tlone Is to elect a manager and to fit up his room In the Yakima Bank building. Bankers and property .owners In general are much pleased over the decision reached by the asso ciated bankers, nnd North Yakima has ' Waa- another factor In the building of a great city. MAY CONDEMN DAM SITE. Govrrnmrnt May He Forced Co Seize land Nir niackfoot. Thomas L Martin of Boise, a spe cial agent of the Indian office, who spent the greater part of last Bum mer and fall along the Blsckfoot riv er, .purchasing land for the yern ment from settlers whose holdings will bo flooded by the big Blackfoot storage reservoir, which will furnish water for the irrigation of the Fort Hall tract, Is In the city today to closo up matters relating to acquir ing title to the reservoir site, says the Pocatello Tribune. Only a few hundred acres remain yet to be purchased by the govern ment, and Mr. Martin Is 6f the opin ion that this can be secured without a great deal of trouble. When asked whether or DOtJt would be necessary to bring condensation ults, Mr. Mar tin said: "1 hope not. When the few re maining settlers realize the reason ableness of the government's position In this matter, 1 am sure they would let go of their land without further trouble. However, If It becomes ne cessary, condemnation suits will be brought, because It 1b not the desire of the Indian office that work of construction of the reservoir should be delayed by failure to attain title to the few remaining acres." The government has been very lib eral with Bloekfoot settlers along the site of the proposed reservoir. An average of close to $20 per acre has been paid for land which will be flooded, and this Is considerably higher, says Mr. Martin, than any In dividual would offer. There Is a firm belief that work on the Hlackfoot dam will begin as early this spring ns the weather will permit. Mr. Martin will leave In a few days for the site of the reservoir, where he will have a final conference with recalcitrant settlers, and unless mat ters are brought to a head, he will put In a few days gathering evidence upon which to base suits for condem nation of the remaining land.

Henry Beck and Joseph Qotdle This commute was instructed to call on the mayor and the license and revenue committee of the coun cil and to make plain the fact that the saloon men's organization will take legal steps to protect members holding liquor licenses, and will seek to eliminate the new clubs, If It can find legal way to do It , "The fact that a club, organized under existing conditions regarding Sunday closing and the like, applies for a federal permit to dispense li quor and take out a state license, should be sufficient evidence for Its taxation by the Imposition of a city license of $1000 a year," said James Weir, president of the organization. "TheBe new clubs are springing up everywhere. There Is one over the Olympus, another has been started In the Lumber Exchange building, nnd one or two more ore planned. We take the position that If this thing continues the saloon men will be com pelled In self-protection to organize clubs, each over his own saloon. "We are In favor of obeying the laws, but If we do that and play sijunre we believe we are entitled to ! a square deal from the law and the i lawful authorities, state and city."
