STATE TREASURERS REPORT



TREASURY DEPARTMENT-STATE OF FLORIDA



TREASURER'S OFFICE

Tallahassee, Fla., Jan. 1, 1924.

To His Excellency,
Cary A. Hardee,
Governor of Florida.

Sir:
In compliance with law, I have the honor to submit
this, my official report of the transactions of this office
for the period beginning January 1, 1923, and ending
December 31, 1923, both dates inclusive.
Included in this report will be found all statements re-
quired by law, with additional information that I hope
will be of interest to your Excellency, and to the general
public.
A statement showing the condition of each fund at the
beginning and at the end of the year, with the receipts
and disbursements during the year, and an abstract of the
receipts and disbursements of the General Revenue Fund,
is included in this report, and may he summarized, briefly
as follows:


General
Revenue Fund.

Total in hands of Treasurer Dec. 31, 1923.......... 2,990,711.28












Thq i'r i. l" lint-, Acc.ounit. State Road Dpartment,"
represents money turned over to the Treasurer by the State
Road Department, and deposited by the Treasurer in banks
in Florida to his official account, at interest, but not treated
as, a part of any particular fund or funds until the proper
distribution has been made upon the certificate of the State
Road Department.

COMPARATIVE STATEMENT RECEIPTS AND DIS-
BURSEMENTS FOR FOUR YEARS

Figures of a statistical nature are of greater value when
presented in comparison with similar figures of similar
periods of time, and I am, therefore, adding to this report
a comparative statement for the four years beginning Jan-
uary 1, 1920, and ending December 31, 1923, showing re-
spectively the receipts and disbursements of all funds for
each of these years, and an abstract of the receipts and dis-
bursements of the General Revenue Fund for the same
years. These statements immediately follow the text of
this report.
Total receipts (all funds) during this period amounted
to $45,852,242.98; total disbursements, $44,765,568.14.
These figures includes transfers from one fund to another.

MONTHLY STATEMENT TO GOVERNOR

In compliance with Chapter 4598, Acts of 1897 (Section
139, Revised General Statutes of 1920), statements are
made monthly to the Governor by the Treasurer, showing
the balance in each of the funds for which he is the cus-
todian; also, showing the character of funds or credits
and where the money belonging to each fund is placed.

RECEIPTS AND DISBURSEMENTS

All payments made into the State Treasury are entered
upon the Treasurer's books, and the original receipts
handed to the Comptroller, the same day, for his records.
Disbursements from all funds are made strictly in com-
pliance with law.
Warrants paid by the Treasurer are returned to the
Comptroller at the close of each month, for credit and re-












concilement of funds and a copy of the monthly state-
ment is likewise filed with the Governor.

INTEREST ON PUBLIC DEBT.

The following amounts were paid for interest on the
public debt during the year:

Interest of bonds owned by State School Fund.$11,045.00
Interest of bonds owned by Agricultural College
(University of Florida) .................... 4,074.00
Interest of Seminary Fund .................. 2,928.00

Total interest on public debt of State....... $18,047.00

This interest is paid semi-annually, on the first day of
January and July, by warrants of the Comptroller drawn
against the General Revenue Fund, under Chapter 5477,
Acts of 1905 (Section 1049, Revised General Statutes of
1920).

DEPOSITS IN BANKS

All funds not actually needed for the daily cash trans-
actions of the Department are deposited in banks under
the provisions of Sections 143 and 144 of the Revised
General Statutes of 1920. Security for said deposits is
required, bonds in excess of the value of the deposits being
exacted of each bank, thus allowing a margin for the possi-
ble fluctuation in value of bonds thereby making these
deposits in the various banks of the State absolutely safe.
The rate of interest is three per cent on daily balances.
During the early part of 1920 the provisions of Chapter
7929, Acts of 1919 (Section 143, Revised General Statutes
of 1920) were put into effect. Every bank in the State
which has made application and furnished security re-
quired by statute, is allowed an equal share in the State
tax moneys derived from taxation in the county in which
such bank is situated, at the uniform rate of three per cent
per annum interest on daily balances.















The following table shows the interest collected each
year on State deposits since the statute governing same
was first enacted in 1897:

$389,357.07, were all paid into General Revenue, as was
$27,276.66 collected prior to July 1, 1921, when the Act
providing for the creation of a Sinking Fund for the Re-
tirement of the Bonded Indebtedness of the State, here-
inafter referred to more extensively, went into effect. This
Sinking Fund was credited with the $38,478.54 collected
during the last six months of 1921, and with the entire
amounts shown for 1922 and 1923.

STATE FIRE INSURANCE FUND

Since its creation in May, 1917, the State Fire Insurance
Fund, which is administered by the State Treasurer, has
been the means of saving to the State more than one hun-
dred and twenty-five thousand dollars (over and above all
expenses, losses and unearned premium reserve) in fire
insurance premiums which otherwise would have gone to
private carriers. As shown by the tabulation following,
net premiums written since the creation of the fund (gross
premiums less cancellations and return premiums), amount
to $248,969.19, with fire losses aggregating $43,356.71, and
administrative expenses of $10,665.35, leaving a gross
profit to date of $194,947.13. Deducting from this amount
the unearned premium reserve of $69,354.54, leaves net
earnings amounting to $125,592.59. If we add to this
amount the $17,271.76 representing interest on daily bal-
ances of State funds saved through retaining these pre-
miums in the Treasury instead of paying them out to pri-
vate carriers, and deduct $4,979.38 to cover the loss of the
2% premium tax which the companies would have paid
to the State on the same volume of business, we have a
net profit to date of $137,884.97 through the operation of
the State Fire Insurance Fund in the six and one-half
years of its existence, a net saving to the State of more
than $20,000.00 a year which would have been an expense
of $8,000.00 a year prior to the enactment of this law, in
premiums paid to fire insurance companies in excess of fire
losses recovered by the State from the companies.
It will be observed that the ratio of fire losses incurred
since the creation of the Fund ($43,356.71) to the net pre-
miums during the same period ($248,969.19) is less than
18 per cent, while the losses incurred in Florida by insur-
ance companies during the last seven years for which re-
ports have been filed with this Department, average slightly
more than 41 per cent of the net premiums received. This
is accounted for in part by the superior type of construc-
tion of the more recently erected State buildings, and in-












dividual fire protection at various institutions. The total
expenses of administering the State Fire Insurance Fund
since its creation amounts to only 4.3 per cent of the net
premiums written, or about one-tenth the expense ratio of
fire insurance companies. This is not said for the purpose
of discrediting the private companies in any way, but
merely to emphasize the saving in overhead expense by
the use of an office already created, and the elimination
of soliciting, advertising and other expenses legitimate to
and inseparable from a competitive business. The State
Fire Insurance Fund is limited to State properties, there-
fore it in no sense invades the field of private business.

Interest on deposits of State funds is payable the first
day of each calendar quarter, upon the average daily bal-
ances of the previous quarter. Tax collections are nor-
mally the most active during the second quarter of each
year, and the interest payments in the following quarter
reflect this fact.

SINKING FUND FOR RETIREMENT OF STATE
BONDS

Upon the recommendation of the Treasurer and the
Governor, the Legislature of 1921 enacted the Weaver-
Edge Act (Chapter 8507, Laws of Florida), providing for
the retirement of the bonded indebtedness of the State.

AMENDMENTS TO STATE FIRE INSURANCE LAW

Upon recommendation of this Department, the Legisla-
ture of 1923 enacted the Getzen bill (Chapter 9150, Laws
of Florida; approved June 7, 1923), under which the State
Treasurer is authorized to insure all single risks of more
than fifty thousand dollars, with private companies, the
State Fire Insurance Fund carrying its pro rata of such
risks up to its $50,000.00 limit. The foregoing table shows
the total insurance carried by the State Fire Insurance
Fund and the private companies, respectively, at the sev-
eral State institutions.
The Legislature also enacted the Scales-Mayo bill (Chap-
ter 9151, Laws of Florida, approved June 7, 1923), for the
payment, in annual installments, of the premiums pre-
viously earned by the State Fire Insurance Fund and
unpaid by reason of lack of appropriations. The enact-
ment of these laws, in my judgment, insures the safety
of the State Fire Insurance Fund, and its ability to meet
any losses that might reasonably be expected to occur.

OTHER LEGISLATION

The Legislature also, upon recommendation of this
office, passed the Colson-McKenzie bill (Chapter 9317,
Laws of Florida, approved May 23, 1923), which permits
a great deal of the detail heretofore included in the Treas-
urer's annual reports, to be omitted, at a substantial sav-
ing to the State.

As a matter of information to the Governor and the pub-
lic, however, I am including a detailed statement of all*
warrants paid from the One Mill School Tax Fund and
the Interest of State School Fund, both of which are pro
rated amongst the several counties, the investments of the
State Bond Sinking Fund and the several State Educa-
tional Funds; also a statement of all vouchers paid out
of the contingent funds allowed this office, and the State
Fire Insurance Fund, for the administration of which the
Treasurer is responsible.
In conclusion, I beg to extend my appreciation of your
Excellency'c assistance and co-operation at all times, and
to express confidence in the continuance of these relations
throughout your administration.
Respectfully submitted,


State Treasurer.











Under the provisions of this Act, which went into effect
July 1st, 1921, a Sinking Fund Commission was created,
composed of the Governor, the Secretary of State, the
Attorney General, the State Treasurer and the State
Superintendent of Public Instruction, who are empowered
to use the moneys derived from interest on State deposits
as a sinking fund for the retirement of the bonded in-
debtedness of the State, which consists of $601,567.00
Florida 3% refunding bonds of 1901 and 1903, of which
$267,700.00 mature in 1951 and $333,867.00 mature in
1953. All of these bonds are owned by the several State
educational funds, and are controlled by the State Board
of Education.

The Sinking Fund Act provides in part as follows:

"That when, in the judgment of the Sinking Fund
Commission and the State Board of Education, the fair
market value of the bonds in the Sinking Fund, together
with accrued interest on same and the cash, or a portion
thereof, to the credit of the State Sinking Fund, shall equal
the par value of the State of Florida Refunding 3% Bonds
issued in 1901 and 1903, and held by the Educational
Funds of the State, aggregating $601,567.00 (plus accrued
interest on same), the Sinking Fund Commission is hereby
authorized to transfer to the State Board of Education all
bonds in the Sinking Fund, together with so much of the
Sinking Fund cash as may be agreed upon, and upon
acceptance and receipt of such settlement the State Board
of Education shall surrender said Florida Refunding 3%
Bonds and deliver same to the Sinking Fund Commission,
with a receipt in full settlement endorsed upon same.
Thereupon, interest on said Florida 3% bonds shall term-
inate and cease to be paid. The balance, if any, in the
Sinking Fund shall be transferred to the General Revenue
Fund, and thereafter interest on State moneys shall be
paid into the General Revenue Fund."
As the law limits the investment of this fund to securi-
ties of the same nature purchased by the State Board of
Education for the funds under its control, and as the per-
sonnel of this Board is the same as the Sinking Fund Com-
mission, no conceivable difficulty can arise in the transfer,
in due course, of the Sinking Fund bonds to the State
Board of Education in exchange for the cancellation of the











$601,567.00 Florida refunding 3% bonds, as provided by
the Sinking Fund Act. This should be done within the
next five years, and when it is accomplished, the entire
bonded debt of the State will have been wiped out more
than twenty years before maturity, without one dollar's
taxation for that purpose, $18,047.00 a year interest
charges now paid out of the General Revenue Fund will
be released for other purposes, and the Educational Funds
of the State will exchange the 3% refunding bonds for
securities bringing in not less than $15,000.00 a year addi-
tional interest earnings, for the aid of the common schools
of Florida and the Seminary Funds.
During the year 1923, receipts of the Florida Bonds
Sinking Fund amounted to $83,039.72, of which $7,525.00
was interest from bonds owned by the Fund and the re-
mainder, interest on deposit of State funds in the banks.
Disbursements amounted to $84,269.76, representing pur-
chase of bonds for the Fund during the year. The cash
balance at the beginning of the year was $1,711.94, and at
the close of the year $481.90. -
Total receipts of this Fund since its creation, July 1,
1921, have amounted to $189,101.46, and total disburse-
ments (investments in bonds of Florida counties, munici-
palities and school districts), have amounted to $188,-
619.56. At the present time the Fund is the owner of such
bonds of the par value of $191,000.00, purchased at prices
netting about 51/2 per cent annually.
A detailed statement of the transactions of the Sinking
Fund, also a statement of the bonds owned by the Fund at
the close of the year, will be found elsewhere in this
report.
A saving of $18,047.00 a year interest charges by the
retirement of the State bonds twenty years before maturity
will result in a saving during that period of more than
$360,000.00 to the General Revenue Fund. After the bonds
have been retired, the saving in interest charges against the
General Revenue Fund, and the increased income of the
State School Fund, will be perpetual.
The Sinking Fund is administered as a part of the
routine work of the State Treasurer's office, the purchase
of bonds being authorized by the Commission in each case,
and is handled without any additional expense to the State
whatsoever.











SALE OF "VIOGINIA CENTURY" BONDS OWNED
BY EDUCATIONAL FUNDS.

Between the years 1900 and 1909, inclusive, the State
Btard of Edueation purchased for the educational funds
bonds of the issue known as "Virginia Centuries," ma-
taring in 1991, and bearing interest at the rate of 3% per
annum, of the aggregate par value of $209,000.00, the
actual purchase price being $190,915.17. During the year
just closed, the present State Board of Education, upon
my recommendation, accepted an offer for these bonds of
$157,969.17, investing the proceeds (with the exception of
a cash balance of $178.93) in bonds of Florida counties
and municipalities of the par value of $147,000. Of these
bonds, $120,000.00 at 6% per annum interest yields $7,-
200.00 annual interest, while the remaining $27,000.00, at
5%, yields $1,350.00 interest annually, a total of $8,550.00
annually as against the $6,270.00 annual interest on the
Virginia bonds which were disposed of, an increase of
$2,280.00 annually in interest income as a result of this
conversion of securities. This incraesed interest earning
during the 68 years the "Virginia Centuries" still have
to run would amount to $155,040.00, upon this basis. As
the Florida county and municipal bonds so acquired will
mature in about 30 years, the net gain from the transac-
tion cannot be estimated accurately at this time, as it
would depend in part on the par value of the bonds pur-
chased when these bonds are redeemed, and this is ob-
viously an unknown amount at this time. It may be as-
sumed safely, however, that the funds may be re-invested
at that time with as satisfactory an interest return as has
prevailed for some years past.
During the twelve years it has been my privilege to
serve the people of Florida as State Treasurer, bonds
owned by the educational funds, of an aggregate par value
of $875,900.00, have been redeemed or sold, and the pro-
ceeds invested in the bonds of Florida counties, munici-
palities and districts. The par value of bonds in all the
educational funds on December 31, 1911, the close of the
year prior to which I assumed office, was $1,709,467.00;
at the close of the past year, the par value of bonds owned
by the same funds and by the Florida State Bond Sinking
Fund, created July 1st, 1921, amounted to $2,714,567.00,
an increase in twelve years of more than $700,000.00.











The interest of .State ebaol Funmd, which is distributed
to the counties for the support of common schools,
amounted to $46,058.88 in 1911 and to $107,197.81 in
1923, and this increase as I view it, more than justifies
the policy of investing these funds in Florida county, mu-
nicipal and district bonds. The only other bonds now
owned by any of these funds are $60,000.00 par value
State of Alabama bonds purchased many years ago, and
$50,000.00 par value Liberty Loan bonds purchased dur-
ing the World War.
