The Strength of Savings Banks.

"The Great Strength of Savings Banks in Financial Crises"
is the title of a "Finance Primer" published by the Siegfried
Advertising Agency. This is only a pocket edition of 10 pages,
but has a lot of valuable information gathered from one source
or another. It draws attention to the fact that there are in
New Tork fifty-seven savings banks, with an aggregate grand
total of 1,825,495 accounts, and, while many people have more
than one account, yet it is safe to say that nearly 1,000,000
persons in this city have entrusted their money to these fifty-
seven "people's banks." In the largest institution in New York
City, with its deposits aggregating about $100,(MX),000, the total
cost of managing its immense volume of business is only $150,-
000 a year, or considerably less than 1-5 of 1 per cent on its
fotal deposits. There is on deposit in the savings banks of
New York City about $977,000,000. and In New Tork State
the grand total of $1,394,000,000.
