Come and Bring Your Bible. Everybody Welcome. Seats Free No Collections posits in a single year, and to have increased Its note circulation by two J millions, or about the same percentage, and this on top of an unbroken succession of increases, steady if not so spectacular, throughout the war, Is certainly an achievement of which any bank in Canada may well feel proud. This Is the record exhibited in tho remarkable statement presented at the annual mooting of the Merchants Bank of Canada, whose total assets have now reached the imposing figure of ?121,130,558. This great bank, under the guidance of General Manager D. C. Ma-carow, had a very successful yoar during the twelve months ended April 30, 1917. Not only did it expand its volume of business' by a little less than "5 million dollars, but it also showed earnings b'n a much better scale than in any previous war year, amounting to $1,120,308.84, thus allowing for the writing off of $100,000 from premises account and the addition of $170,000 approximately to the profit balance, after paying the customary 10 per cent, dividend (requiring $700,000), the war tax, several generous donations and the annual contribution to the Pension Fund. This showing, combined with the present enlarged business and the increased demand for banking accommodation', by business houses, suggests a good prospect for a complete return next year to tho normal level of profits which prevailed before tho war, . . ' The total increase in the bank's1 liabilities to the public during the year was not far under 25 million dol-' lars, and they now total about $106.-530,000. Against these are assets to the sum of $121,130,558, of which the cash and liquid items together represent $52,041,024, or about 48.9 per cent, of the liabilities, while cash alone, current coin and Dominion notes, in vaults or in the Central Gold Reserve, is equivalent to 15 per cent, of liabilities. Tho non cash items in the liquid reserve are gilt-edged securities, chiefly in the class including the British Treasury - Bills Issued for the financing of Imperial munitions orders in Canada; the Merchants Bank, now holds $11,263,196 of this class ol securities, an increase ofrsome six millions during the year. The bank also added about $1,400,00(1 to its holdings of Dominion and provincial government securities. The increasing demand for bank accommodation by commercial and industrial houses (largely due to the greater amount of money necessary to carry on business at present enhanced prices) allowed of a growth of nearly 14 millions in the item of current loans and discounts In Canada, which now stands at $62,737,958. The entire statement is an indication of the notable service which this bank is performing for Canadian business and Canadian savings. Mr. and Mrs. It.
