D.-Distribution of the Currency. The acts of February 25, 1863, and June 3, 1864, and March 3, 1865, authorize the issue of three hundred millions of circulating notes to national banks, one hundred and fifty millions of which were to be "apportioned to associations in the States, in the District of Columbia and the Territories, according to representative population, and the remainder among associations formed in the several States, the District of Columbia, and the Territories, having due regard to the existe ing capital, the resource and business of each State, District, and Territory." The whole amount of currency authorized by these acts was issued to national banks during the four years following..

The following is a statement, prepared by the Comptroller of the Currency, of the apportionment of $354,000,000 national bank circulation, upon the basis of population and wealth, as given in the census of 1870, together with the amount outstanding July 1, 1874, and the excess and deficiency, to which has been added the capital paid in:

[blocks in formation]

The act of July 12, 1870, authorized an additional issue of fifty-four millions of dollars, and provided that such notes should be issued to banking associations organized or to be organized in those States and Territories having less than their proportion under the apportionment contemplated by the act of March 3, 1865, and that the bonds deposited with the Treasurer of the United States to secure the additional circulation should be of any description of United States bonds bearing interest in coin. It also provided that a new apportionment of the increased circulation should be made as soon as practicable, based upon the census of 1870, and for the cancellation monthly of three per cent. certificates equal in amount to the national bank notes issued the last of these certificates having been finally redeemed during the last year. Of this additional circulation, authorized by the act of July 12, 1870, there was issued to November 1, 1871, $24,773,260; in the year ending November 1, 1872, $16,220,210; in the year ending November 1, 1873, $7,357,479, leaving, December last, still to be issued to banks already organized, and in process of organization, $5,649,051.

The act of June 20, 1874, authorizes the transfer of national bank notes from States which are in excess of their proportion, for the purpose of redistributing the same among States which have less than their proportion under an apportionment made on the basis of population and wealth, as shown by the returns of the census of 1870. The act does not provide for the issue of any additional amount of circulation, so that the apportionment remains about the same as given in the annual report of the Comptroller of the Currency for 1873. The $55,000,000 to be redistributed will be issued to those States exhibiting a deficiency in the above table.

From other tables in the report of the Comptroller of the Currency it appears that the taxes paid by national banks are in excess of $6,000,000 per annum, on circulation, deposits, and capital. The precise figures the last four years are: 1869, $5,830,887 86; in 1870, $6,017,460 34; in 1871, $6,505,812 21; in 1872, $6,846,320 66.

It also appears that the dividends of the national banks, upon an average, for a series of years, have been about ten per cent. per annum upon the capital, or less than nine per cent. upon capital and surplus.
