BUSINESS FOOTING! FIRM
Legixlation Desired to Make
Federal Reserve Affili
ation Easier j
Banks In Oregon have never been
as prosperous as daring the year
1977, declares an atnual report is
sued yesterday by S. G, i Sargent,
Uate superintendent of banks. This
Is accounted for largely by the high
price ot, farm products, which was
more thifn high enough to offset the
shortage in crops which prevailed In
practically all sections of the state.
Oregon banks ' have nearly all
taken advantage of the opportunity
to "clean house," and to that end
have deferred the payment of divi
dends in many cases and have 'ad

justed their doubtful assets, leaving J
them on a business footing to begin
the new year that probably has never
before been as substantial.,
. - Xlne Charters , Granted. '
Nine applications for bank chart
ers have been approved by the su
perintendent daring the year and
seven of these have gone through all
the preliminaries, necessary while
two others jbave not quite completed
arrangements to begin operation.
. Three state banks have joined the
federal 1 reserve system during the
year and i a large number : of others
have made application, while the di
rectors i J others are considering
making applictlon and will doubtless
do so. j In view of this Inclination
of the banks to come under the fed
eral reserve laws so that it will not
be a difficult matter for them to
come under the reserve system.. He
believes that by the end of 1918
nearlv all the state banks will be un
der the system. ,
. ' Kmployes Are Active. '
y Examiners from the superintend
ent's office made 336 bank examina
tions during the twelve months just
closed and employes of the depart
ment traveled, a total of 52,000 miles
on official ,btdness. i "
A statement of receipts and - ex
penditures for the year shows the
present balance In the state banking
fond to be $7949.53. On January 1.
-1917, the I balance was $6066.46
and total receipts for the year were
$19,469.09, while disbursement!
have totaled $17,586.02. ; . ' i
On the present salary basis of the
department the superintendent and
the employes draw an aggregate of
On the subject of general banking
conditions In Oregon the report says:
"Notwithstanding the heavy de-;
mands made upon our banks due to
war conditions, and the ' fact, that
they have assisted In . financing two
liberty bond campaigns, deposits In
both state and national banks have
shown a steady and, substantial
growth; and on November 20. 1947,
reached a grand total of $196,95,
775.40. Including balance doe from
other banks. This Is an increase f
tX4.361t794.64 - since November -17,
1916, and Indicates a most satisfac
tory and , prosperous ; condition
throughout the state. t
' "On ; November 20. 1917. con
tinues the Teoort. "there were 171
state Institutions reporting to this
department with total resources, ag
gregating $92,427,718.15. being In
crease riffone In the number of banks
inee November 17. 1916. and an
increase of $14,259,381.36 in total
rsourrerf.- Total ; deposits held by
these banks amounted to $76,642,
084.74. With h on hand and ne
from other -nanhs aggregating $23,
563.095.84, giving an average re
serve of over 30 per cent." ;
Superintendent 'Sargent has been
careful to avoid over-competition in
banking circles an relative to this
subiect remarks In his report:
"Believing ths.t It If Incumbent
upon the department 4o protect ex
isting banks from undue competi
tion, I have refused to Issue charters
In several instances. Careful Inves
tigations; made of these applications
convinced me that the fields were al
ready spfriclentlv served and that lo
cal conditions did not warrant the
organization of new institutions.
New banks, however, will be organ
ized and! charters rranted Just as
fast as the development of the state
offers opportunities for their establishment'
