The Bank of New Mex ico never proceeded any farther in the financial history of the south west thap the obtaining of the chart er from the territorial legislature, which was granted on January 29, 18bl. These were 'war times' and the gold and silver output of the territory, which amounted to consid erable, was transported across tht plains; the gold came principally from Santa Fe county the old and new placers. With the driving out of the Texans the year previous, busi ness communication with California was restored and from that state in exchange for sheep also came some i80'' ut tms a's0 fan& ',s wav eait over me plains. First National la Organized "Thereafter no effort was made to establish a banking institution in New Mexico until 1H70, when Lucien B. Maxwell, the owner of the famous lieaubien and Miranda land grant, having sold the grant, made applica tion for a charter for a national bank which was finally organized at San ta Fe. Maxwell realized from the sale of his grant the sum of $650,000. Some of this money he invested in bonds of the Texas & Pacific rail (road, then in course of construction, but the entire amount was lost.. Some body suggested to him that a profit able investment for part' of his money would be in the establishment of a . , . , . , hank m the territorial capital. 1 he idea appeared to please him, for h.: applied for a charter with a capital stitute a directory. In due course, the bank opened for business, but for some reason deposits did not flow in at all liberally. It was a new exper iment in New Mexico, and the people needed some preliminary education before they could be brought up to lnd,re their funds with a bank. The personnel of the new bank for some reason did not inspire confidence. This was not in anyway due to Max well, who was well known thorough out the territory and was looked up on as an uprignt ana nonorauie man of simple tastes and cnaracier. ' had, however, no uaiiKing experience jor knowledge and the 1 gentlemen whom ,he nau associated wun i.i.i.se,. ... enterprise, aim wno yverc .upiu '" furish he tki" tra",mf TT tial . to the success "! conduct of the uusiness, were mn - .. - hence did not create the necessary some months without doing much business.

Maxwell was fond of horseflesh, and during his incumbency of the pre sidency he advertised in Kansas City papers the racing virtues of his mare Fly,' offering to bet large sums that u 1 & . U in n It tUm wa l," ennld heat anvthinsr in the way of a racer that could be produced. Some wag in Kansas City cut out this advertisement, and, placing it on the letterheads of the Santa Fe bank, and writing over it the legend 'Bank ing in New Mexico' hung it in the lobby of a Kansas City bank. Interest Rate High "In the spring of 1871, Stephen B. Elkins, then a rising political figure in New Mexico politics, and after ward United States Senator from West Virginia, with Thomas B. Cat ron of Santa Fe (also later U. S. Senator) and others were on the point of making application for a charter for another bank, but pend ing the completion of the necessary steps. Maxwell, tiring of his financial operations in Santa Fe, sold his bank to these men. At this time it wipjr,f ational Bank was called upon the only institution of the kind in New Mexico and Arizona. The Unit rA Stntrt maintained a depository at Santa Fe and at Tucson, and to these, at stated intervals currency and com were sent from St. Louis, under charge of an official of the treasury department and with a military es cort. Prior to the advent of the Santa Fe railroad banking was con ducted under conditions very differ- ent from those which have since pre- ailed.
