The total banking funds — that is, capital, surplus, profits, and individual deposits — of all banks reporting amount to $7,416,355,568, and, by comparison with returns in 1897, an increase of .f 594,028,698 is shown. The national bank average is $39.93; State bank, $16.82; loan and trust company, $11.54; savings bank, $29.93 ; private bank, $1.12 ; and total, $99.34. The specie and other currency held by national banks on July 14 and by other banks on the date of the latest reports aggregate $687,796,173, an increase since 1897 of $59,595,644. CLassified, the holdings are as follows: Gold, $341,108,985; silver, $58,947,221; specie not shown in detail, $2,131,917; legal tenders and other paper currency, $199,915,862; frac- tional currency, $1,093,904; "cash," $84,598,284. The latter amount undoubtedly includes a quantity of specie, but how much cannot even be estimated. The reports from a number of States show merely "cash on hand." It is interesting to note the changes which have occurred since 1897 in the amount of each kind of currency. Gold has increased $98,755,983;
