New York. Jan. 20.—Loan certifi-
cates Issued by the New York Clear-
ing House during the recent financial
stringency reached a total of $97,000,-
000 according to a statement prepared
by President Alexander Gilbert of the
Clearing House association. Of this
amount, however, only $74,000,000 In
certificates were put Into actual use.
The movement to retire these certifi-
cates began immdiately aftr the crisis
of the financial depression passed and
progressed rapidly The greater part
of these certificates have, President
Gilbert said, have now been returned.
This is the first public statement
that has been made of the extent to
which the New York Clearing House
resorted to certificates to prevent th£
banks being drained of their cash and
prevent bank ambarassments, which
ml?ht have resulted in the continued
requirement of cash payments at

to $41,690,000 or more than $32,000,000

makes the point however, that so
large has been the Increase In bank
deposits that whereas in 1893 loan
certificates amounted to about 10 per
cent dei oslts, certificates In 1907
amounted to loss than 5 per cent of
The great gain in cash made by
banks since the end of November Is
shown by the fact that within seven
weeks from Nov. 23 to Jan. 11 clear-
ing bouse banks were able to convert
the deficit of over $54,000,000 Into a
surplus of over $0,000,000 and at the
same time retire certificates.

Austin, Jan. 20.—The state has laid

the Union Tank Line company, a de-
fendant In the Standard Oil anti-trust
suits, and now has a total of sixty-
six cars of that company impounded
fn this state, but has been unable to
get service. The cars will probably
average $600 each in value, making a
total of $33,000 impounded In the state.
The receiver, Guy Collett, Is having a
list made of the cars, with number and
location, with a view to making them
earn something. The cars are located
fn the various railroad yards of the
state, and the railroad companies are
sbeylng the injunction of the state
courts not to remove the cars from
the state or the Jurisdiction of the
As soon as the receiver lists them
and locates all the cars they will
probably be leased to some company
authorized *o take them, and which
can make a satisfactory bond for their
value, and to return them in good con-
ditlon as they were received.
