"FUTURE OF THE TURPENTINE INDUSTRY,"
(From the Savannah Cotton Trade Journal's Naval Stores Edition.)
Before long the naval stores industry
may expect to see the results of power-
ful operations now in progress, which ap-
pear innocent enough in their nature,
while working for apparently gigantic
control. Compared to what the trade have
complained of heretofore, what threatens
now would seem in its fullest reality to
The question of attempts at absolute
control of the naval stores industry by
exporting interests seems no longer to
perplex those hearing to imagine the prob-
able intent of large purchases into fac-
torage concerns by them. The policy
of the exporters long dominant in naval
stores appears to be to so interest them-
selves also in the factorage end of the
business, in the control of lands, and by
connections with producers, as will either
better conserve their interests or enable
tkem to wield more power and control.
It -should be plainly stated that our
purpose here is not to arraign any par-
ticular interest, but to consider an im-
portant condition to the industry. In oth-
er words, abundant reason exists for be-
Heving that the exporters who dominate
the market are now moving rapidly to-
ward an important position in the pro-
ducing feld by such connections as will
make them to an extent independent of
factors. That the combined exporters,
with their ingenuous leader, are moving
surely and steadily, and that their policy
is now as plain to outsiders as intelligent
people require for conviction, is no longer
in serious doubt, and the question is,
whether the ultimate result yill be for
the good or evil of operators, the advan-
tage or disadvantage of factors.
The manner exporters are buying into
factorage concerns and starting others are
matters of such well known trade knowl-
edge as to render needless resort to per-
sonalities. We have been surprised re-
cently to visit factorage offices and find
expert accountants going over the books
preparatory to a passing of control from
Atlanta, Ga.-The Atlanta, Birmingham
A Atlantic Railway has, it is reported,
completed its line to a point within 31
milesof Atlanta, and this distance is ex-
pected to be covered by December 1.
Cairo, Ga.-C-pitalists of Valdosta, Cor-
dele and Atlanta propose, it is reported, to
build a railroad from Cairo south via Ha-
rvna, Fla, to the Gulf of Mexico and
northward to Pelham, Ga. The Cairo
Lumber Co. may be interested.
Center, Texas.-The Gulf, Colorado &
8ata Fe Railway Co. has just amended
ts charter for building the proposed con-
meetion from Center to Timpson, Texas,
17 miles, to unite the Gulf, Beaumont &
Oeat Norther and the Texas & Gulf
the owners to big exporters. We have
also been surprised to have the president
of a factorage company make a decision
upon a business proposition contingent
upon its approval first by a big exporter.
These companies have been giving their
especial attention of late to timber lands.
And there is no danger in getting these
companies mixed up with the old-line, in-
dependent factors. Neither is there any
danger of mixing up exporters, for the
line is very clearly drawn between the one
and the other, and in a majority of cases
in plain English. The importance of the
movement referred to, however, asserts
itself at this time because the exporters
have proceeded far enough to disclose be-
yond doubt their policy to enter actively
into operations behind the factor, upon
whom they have up to this time depend-
ed for their supplies.
The trade need not worry as to what
will follow with exporters in undisputed
control of distribution, also progressing in
acquiring the balance of power in con-
trolling the source of supply. At the rate
the acquisition of power is moving to
this time the next decade threatens .to
find one great company in absolute dom-
ination, controlling the distribution, the
market, the supply. The last of these is
all required now to complete the policy.
It is needless" to say that if such a
condition is finally realized the usual
course will be followed of reducing costs
to their lowest basis by eliminating every-
body possible. It is not a rule of such
concerns to carry ballast, as the organi-
zation is usually so perfect as to make it
run with a minimum of help. It would
mean much slaughter in the ranks of mid-
Granting the policy of the exporters is
attempted control of production, the ope-
rator may well consider what the effect
of this would be upon him. Would the
dominant interests then favor high prices,
or would it be money to them to have low
prices? Would they beat down prices and
buy in what they did not control, then
advance them for selling off? Or would
the law of supply and demand be allowed
to apply? Where would the turpentine
operator stand with one single company
absolutely controlling distribution, abso-
lutely controlling the markets, absolutely'
controlling production? Where do the in-
dependent oil operators of Ohio and In-
diana stand today?
It is useless to speculate upon the pos-
sibilities of the future in this regard. It
is enough for the trade to know the rea-
sons for believing that such forces are at
work on such a policy. And it may be
said that the work is in the hands of ex-
tremely patient, shrewd and far-seeing
men, who are quite willing to outline pol-
icies requiring a decade for their execu-
tion. Cornelius Vanderbilt said of the
Standard Oil men who dealt' with him
when he presided over a great railroad in
New York, that "they are extremely sa-
gacious business men. They are too smart
The people have taken a stand on at-
tempts to control business and crush out
competition which has manifested itself
with such might and vengeance recently
that fear need not be felt of their oppres-
sion by the designs of rapacious financiers.
The grasp of the people seems sufficient
to protect themselves, and when necessity
seems to call for action it appears that
remedial measures for commercial evils
may be effectively applied.
Certain Questions to be Considered by Na-
val Stores Producers.
Editor of the Record:
Is the Naval Stores Industry about to
be swallowed up by a small ring of capi-
talists engaged in the exporting and hand-
ling of turpentine and rosin?
Events transpiring within the last three
to five months lead us to believe that
there is a decided Ethiopian in the wood-
The action of the Savannah factors in

be extended northward from Longview, contemplate the construction of a branch
Texas, to connect with the Santa Fe north
of the Red River. C. F. W. Felt is chief
engineer at Galveston, Texas.
Covington, Tenn.-The Memphis, Cov-
ington & Northern Railway Co. has been
chartered with $14,000 capital to build a
line in Covington, Tenn., and also an in-
terurban railway in Tipton and Shelby
counties. The incorporators are G. B. Gil-
lespie, John T. Garner, J. B. Withering-
ton, W. M. Abernathy, H. N. Sullivan,
C. H. Stovall, W. A. Black and R. W.
Fayette, Miss.-An officer of the Yazoo
& Mississippi Valley Railroad (Illinois
Central System) informs the Manufactu-
from Melton Station to King's point.
This denies a recent press report.
Greenville, Texas.-Mr. J. T. Jones,
chairman of the executive committee, in-
forms the Manufacturers' Record that the
proposed interurban railway from Green-
ville via Wolf City to Bonham is only in
its primary stages. A civil engineer will
be engaged immediately to survey and
locate the line, which, it is expected, will
occupy two or three months. When this
is done the company will be incorporated,
and it is intended to begin construction
early next spring. The line will be about
35 miles long and will have local railways
in each of the three cities.
letting" the market go down both on tur-
pentine and rosin without making a strug-
gle even to stop the raid on the market,
looks very ugly. When we consider that
these people have millions of dollars due
them from operators in the woods and that
if the prices of naval stores reach such
a low level that it costs more to make the
stuff than they receive for it, the factor
faces inevitable loss in collecting his ac-
counts and the producer, of course, faces
It is certain that turpentine and rosin
cannot be produced at 50c. per gallon for
turpentine and $3.50 for common rosin.
It is certain that the crop this year is
less than last year.
It is certain that the consumptive de-
mand has been good and general condition
favorable, yet in the face of it all, we
have seen the market ABSOLUTELY
choked down and "sandbagged" on the
Savannah Board of Trade which (unfor-
tunately) controls prices for the whole
Therefore, some explanation must be
rendered to the turpentine producers aa
to why their factors have allowed the
market to go to bankruptcy figures with-
out even making an effort to stop the de-
cline, and also it should be explained why
one of the largest houses in the business
-The J. P. Williams Co.-has recently
openly joined the "wreckers" and assist-
ed in throwing the naval stores business
oon the scrap-pile.
Can it be possible that these worthy
gentlemen have a comfortable OPTION
locked up in their safes on their entire
business by which they will be paid for
their accounts and investments plus a
handsome bonus and are only waiting for
the winter and the close of the naval
stores season to turn over to the NEW
MONOPOLY the absolute control of the
naval stores business?
Finally: Will the turpentine operators
agree to be sold like so many sheep to
this crowd of sharks and naval stores

USE OF BEECH FOR RAILROAD CROSS
Throuh Treatment With Woee Preser.
vatives, Timber May Be Made to Out-
last White Oak.
Experts in wood preservation in this aul
other countries have discovered that the
beech makes a most lasting and durable
cro-tie, when properly treated. In the
lends itself readily to impregnation with
preservative substances, but the heart-
wood of white oak is very resistant.
Heartwood in most cases is naturally more
durable than sapwood on account of its
structure and the preservative substances
which it contains, such as resin in the
ease of pine and tannin in the case ,of
oak. The white oak, therefore, is durable
on account of its large proportion of de-
"ay-resisting heartwood. On the oth,.r
hand the heartwood of white oak cannot
be impregnated with preservatives, except
with great difficulty. This fact of itself
is of little importance on account of the
natural durability of the wood, but it
tends to bring out the difference between
white oak and beech. In the latter tree
the heartwood does not begin to form be-
fore the tree is moderately old and even
then without regularity. Consequently
the beech ti is composed largely of sap-
wood and this partly accounts for its la-!k
of durability. However, because of this
porosity beech easily allows itself to be
impregnated with preservative substances,
thus rendering it possible to guard effect-
ively against decay.
Many preservatives have been employed
for protecting beech tie abroad, particu-
larly in France and Germany. After num-
erous trials the most efficient preservative
under all conditions of exposure has proven
to be creosote or dead oil of coal tar. Con-
cerning the length of life of a properly
treated beech tie, Mr. Rutgers, proprietor
of a treating plant in Germany, says:
"In the year 1897 I undertook to de-
liver 50,000 beech ties impregnated with
oil of tar and warranted to last ffteen
years. I have only to regret that the rail-
way exchequer does not practice reciproc-
ity and offers no compensation for the
ties which last longer than fifteen years."
Of all the European roads, the Eastern
Railway of France has obtained the best
results from treated ties. It usms beech
(Continued on page 9.)
search for railroad tie timber to fill the
wide gaps made by the dwindling supply
of white oak, lumber manufacturers hate
been compelled to turn to many woods
which were once considered inferior, brt
which under creosote or other chemical
treatment have been found to furnislh ex-
cellent substitutes for the oak.
Railroad builders have rejected beech
heretofore because it decays quickly in
damp places. They wanted oak, and when
that could not be had they took other de-
eay-resisting woods, but in most cases
they did not consider beech at any priae,
except as a temporary makeshift. Yet it
has been proved by actual tests of long
duration that a beech tie may be given
a preservative treatment which will make
it outlast white oak. It is possible to
turn this knowledge to great practical
use in relieving the enormous demand upon
the limited supply of good tie timoer.
The beech is found widely distributed
throughout the eastern portion of the
United States, reaching its best develop-
ment in the basin of the lower Ohio River,
and on the slopes of the Allegheny Moun-
tains. It grows to an average height ef
70 to 80 feet, but occasionally trees of 120
feet in height are found. The diameter
of mature trees is often three of four feet.
In the forest, the beech forms a compara-
tively slender stem clear of branches for
more than half its length. The wood is
hard, strong, tough and very close grain-
ed. Its use is largely limited to the man-
ufacture of chairs, shoe-lasts, plane-
stocks, handles and for fuel.
The ideal timber used for cross-ties is
white oak. This combines all of the gool
qualities of the beech and in addition
is very durable. Consequently it has becl
widely employed by the railroads for tie
purposes. It not only is an excellent wood
for ties but is widely used in ship-build-
ing, for construction, and in cooperage, the
manufacture of carriages, agricultural im-
plements, the interior finish of houses, and
for furniture. On account of its exten-
sive use the supply has been greatly re-
duced, and a great many railroads ire-
now force dto pay almost prohibitive
prices for white oak ties or to substitute
other cheaper woods to replace the white
oak ties rapidly disappearing from their
lines. Michigan cedar or aborvitae has
been extensively used to take the place of
white oak. This is very durable, but un-
der heavy traffic is severely cut by the
rails which necessitates the use of tie
plates and other protective devices. The
available supply of cedar is now running
short and it is necessary to seek further
for new tie timbers.
Beech suggests itself. It has all the
good tie's qualities except durability.
When laid in the track decay quickly de-
stroys beech timber unless rendered im-
mune by preservative treatment. It re-
ceives such treatment readily-much more
readily than oak which needs it less.
Ther is a reason why beech is more sus.
ceptible to treatment than white oak

ANOTHER ALLEGED PEgOAGE CASK.
Another case of alleged peonage bobbed
up before United States Commissioner E.
O. Locke in Jacksonville on Thursday.
The complaint is made by Mr. A. J.
Hoyt, special agent of the department of
justice, who wast sent into the south
when the peonage agitation was on last
year to assist in working up evidence.
The defendant is William C. Thomas,
who is in charge of a large place near
Orangedale, in St. Johns county.
The charge is the old familiar one, of
returning to a condition of peonage cer-
tain alleged peons, and holding them in a
condition of peonage, contrary to the
provisions of section 5526, Revised Stat-
utes of the United States.
Mr. Thomas, it was stated yesterday,
would be represented by Col. J. N. Strip-
ling, formerly United States district at-
torney in this district.
The warrant for the arrest of the de-
fendant was served by Deputy United
States Marshal T. J. Bundrix.
The defendant was brought before Unit-
ed States Commissioner E. 0. Locke yes-
terday and waived preliminary examina-
Commissioner Locke thereup held him
for the United States grand jury, fixing
the bond at $500.
Because the hearing was waived the
evidence of the government did not come
out in detail.
The charge, as set up in the complaint,
is that Thomas, in August of this year,
"returned from Martin, Fla., to Orange-
dale, Fla, to a condition of peonage, Neff
Claridy, Henry Claridy, Joe Claridy, Lu-
ther Claridy, Luther Claridy, Bud McCoy,
Adam Besant, Dave Bryant and Henry
It is further charged that ever since
then and until now he held these alleged
peons ni a condition of peonage.
This is the second peonage case to be
started this fall, the first one being against
J. B. Brinson, of Lake City.

Do Your Duty, Men In the Woods.
We urge every producer of naval stores,
east and west of the Alabama river, to
attend the Convention of the operators
next week and to attend it prepared to
assist in some way in wrenching the in-
dustry from its present deplorable con-
The Record has exposed the methods of
the Shotter combination. It has chanm-
pioned the cause of the producers and
fought all over the field. It will continue
to do so; but we want to say emphati-
cally and frankly, the operators them-
selves must help in winning this fight.
In the days of prosperity there is no
cooperation. There is no need for it, one
will say. Perhaps so. At any rate the
fact stands out that in days of plenty
and peace and prosperity, with every man
the absolute master of his own situation,
lender instead of borrower, with a bank
balance instead of a load, of interest and
discount Ipapr--how easy it is to get along
without the advice, cooperation, or even
the friendly interest of brothers engaged
in a similar industry. It is only adversity
that makes industrial cooperation possi-
ble. It was adversity that gave birth to
the Tupentine Operators' Association.
Most of us remember the years immedi-
ately preceding the meeting in the little
church shack in Jacksonville in September,
1901. We remember the depressed con-
dition of every operator; we remember
the tottering condition of the industry
as a whole. That convention, when the
operators agreed to stand shoulder to
shoulder in their mutual interest, was the
turning point. The industry-the opera-
tors-began to slowly but gradually
emerge from the darkness that surrounded
them. In two years they were making
money. In four years they were at the
very top of financial and industrial lib-
erty and independence. Then there was
no need for the Association they thought,
and they began to neglect it. Resolu-
tions were passed merely as pastime.
There was no effort toward continued co-
operation. Every man could strike his
own purse and declare himself his own
master, independent of others, or the ac-
tion of others. Ahl! how easy to forget.
It is unnecessary for us to dwell again
upon the conditions as they exist today.
In 1901 the conditions were not so bad.
At that time the vast fortunes were not
tied up in the industry as today. Condi-
tions were bad then, but there were dimes
at stake where there are dollars today.
Let us urged you, friends, attend the
Convention; let us get together again, and
do our duty!

there is still something of a blockade in
domestic exchange through the unwilling-
ness of New York banks to pay currency
on drafts from other cities and the un-
willingness of other cities to pay out
their currency upon drafts from New
York. The condition of affairs indicates
a continued pressure for currency rather
than a breakdown of credits, but reason-
able demands are being met for regular
customers of the banks. The possibility
of hastening the export movement of
wheat and cotton still engages the atten-
tion of foreign exchange dealers, and also
of those who endeavor to keep in touch
with the general situation. Doubt is ex-
pressed whether the secretary of the treas-
ury will be able to carry out on any con-
siderable scale the project of the New Or-
leans exporters for accepting cash at gov-
ernment fiscal agencies abroad and trans-
ferring it by telegraph to points in this
country, but Secretary Cortelyou is un-
lerstood to be willing to make such de-
nosits of public money at cotton export-
ing points as will to a considerable extent
-elelieve the strain.
say nothing of wood fiber and other ma-
terials, which could be produced from the
wastewood of this one year, would place
the amount at not less than 30 million
gallons. This is a surprising figure, when
it is remembered that it represents an
amount almost equal to the present an-
nual production of gum spirits in this
country. If this product were extracted
from the wood and sold at even the cur-
rent price of good wood turpentine, the
gross saving would be easily $14,400,000.
Men have realized for some time that
an enormous waste of valuable substances
is going on, and a few have succeeded in
extracting the turpentine and placing on
the market a material of a fairly good
quality. In the majority of cases, how-
ever, the article has been of an inferior
grade, due generally to the fact that the
technical methods used have been faulty.

As a result of this, wood turpentine is at
present often considered as an adulterared
material, or at best as a poor substitute
for gum spirits. It is true that in some
cases these opinions are well founded, but
inferior products have put an unnecessary
damper on the whole industry.
The Section of Wood Chemistry of the
Forest Service has lately been investigat-
ing this subject and some valuable results
have been obtained. It has been found
that for the recovery of turpentine from
wastewood, the steam distillation process
is far superior to that of distilling the
wood destructively. The crude turpentine
is in all cases more uniform, and the final
refined materials are as a rule of better
grade and can demand a higher price.
When properly made and refined, experi-
ments have shown that the steam turpen-
tines are in many cases even more uniform
in composition than the gum turpentines,
and for all practical purposes contain the
identical substances. The odor often can-
not be distinguished from that of gum

spirits, but even if it could, this is a small
matter in many cases, as infinitesimal and
undetectable amounts of certain impuri-
ties left in the refined product as the
result of the methods .of production can
produce this slight difference in odor, and
the wood turpentine should not be con-
demned for practical purposes on this ac-
-eont. This becomes still more evident
when it is known that the sweet odor
of the gum turpentine is not character-
istie of itself, but is due to an impurity
produced by the chemical action of air
These are important discoveries and are
well worthy of consideration. If they
are true, then refined steam turpentine,
properly prepared, should bring at least an
equal price in this country with the gum
turpentine. Indeed, abroad, this is often
the ease, and instances'are on record where
the refined steam turpentine has, by vir-
tue of its more uniform composition,
brought five cents a gallon more than the
gum spirits, and is in much greater de-
mand. Further investigations along these
lines will be pushed vigorously by the

timber and injects a large amount of crm-
omote of high grade. Oak ties had to be
removed from its track after fifteen years
of use while beech ties impregnated with
4reosote lasted thirty years. Many other
instances of long service from creosoted
beech ties might be given.
The Forest Service of the U. S. Depart-
ment.of Agriculture has spent considera-
ble time in developing a cheap, yet effici-
rent method of treating certain classes of
timber in order to preserve them against
decay, and information on the investiga-
tions may be obtained by writing to the
Forester, Washington, D. C. This is known
as the "Open Tank" method and is prob-
ably well adapted to the treatment of
beech ties and similar timbers which con-
tain a large amount of sapwood. The
treatment consists in immersing the tim-
bers in alternate baths of hot and cold
creosote, or other preservative. The ties
are placed in a tank of hot creosote for a
few hours, the length of time depending
upon the amount of moisture contained in
the timber. They are then placed in a
bath of cold preservative for a short pe-
riod which completes the treatment. When
the wood is heated in the first bath the
air and moisture in the wood cells and in-
Sterellular spaces is expanded and some of
it is driven out. Upon immersion in col.i
preservatives the difference in tempera-
ture causes the expanded air and moist!tre
to contract, thus forming a partial vac-
uum which causes the liquod to penetrate
the wood to the desired depth. The ties
abould be air-seasoned before being sub-
Jested to treatment. This can be accomp-
lished in a short time by piling them in
open piles, thus allowing the air to freely
direulate around them. Beech checks very
little when properly piled. In this re-
peet, it excels white oak.
2T WANING HARDWOOD SUPPLY.
Although the demand for hardwood
lumber is greater than ever before, the
annual cut to-day is a billion feet less
than it was seven years ago. In this
time the wholesale price of the different
lasses of hardwood have advanced from
25 to 65 per cent. The cut of oak, which
in 1899 was more than half the total cut
of hardwoods, has fallen off 36 per cent.
Yellow poplar, which was formerly second
in point of output, has fallen off 38 per
cent, and elm has fallen off one-half.
The cut of softwoods is over four times
that of hardwoods, yet it is doubtful if
a shortage in the former would cause dis-
may in so many industries. The cooper-
age, furniture, and vehicle industries de-
pend upon hardwood timber, and the rail-
roads, telephone and telegraph companies,
agricultural implement manufacturers and
builders use it extensively.
This leads to the question, Where is the
future supply of hardwoods to be found?
The cut in Ohio and Indiana, which, seven
years ago, led all other States, has fallen
off one-half. Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky,
Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jer-
sey, Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia and
Wisconsin have also declined in hardwood
production. The chief centers of produc-
tion now lie in the Lake States, the lower
Mississippi Valley, and the Appalachian
Mountains. Yet in the Lake States the
presence of hardwoods is an almost certain
indication of rich agricultural land, and
when the hardwoods are cut the land is
turned permanently to agricultural use.
In Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi
the production of hardwoods is clearly at
its extreme height, and in Missouri and
Texas it has already begun to decline.
The answer to the question, therefore,
would seem to lie in the Appalachian
Mountains. They contain the largest body
of hardwood timber left in the United
States. On them grow the greatest varie-
ty of tree species anywhere to be found.
Protected from fire and reckless cutting,
they produce the best kinds of timber,
since their soil and climate combine to
make heavy stands and rapid growth.
Yet much of the Appalachian forest has
been so damaged in the past that it will
be years before it will again reach a high
state of productiveness. Twenty billion
feet of hardwoods would be a conservative
estimate of the annual productive capacity
of the 75,000,000 acres of forest lands in
the Appalachians if they were rightly
managed. Until they are we can expect a
shortage in hardwood timber.

SMALL BANKS IN THE SOUTH.
How rapidly and extensively the bank-
ing facilities of the South have grown
within the last seven years is shown, at
least in part, by a recent bulletin issued
by the Comptroller of the Currency. This
reveals incidentally the great increase in
the number and total capitalization of
national banks in the 14 Southern States,
especially of small banks in country
towns and villages, many of which places
were without banking accommodations be-
fore the establishment of these financial
institutions. The bulletin does not, how-
ever, give figures on State banks or trust
companies, of which there is a large num-
ber in the South; in fact, there are no
complete figures concerning such institu-
tions, as all the States do not keep sta-
tistice concerning the banks chartered by
The total number of national banks now
in the South is 1421, and their total cap-
ital is $154,066,735. More than two-thirds
of this number, or 959, have been estab-
lished since the approval of the act of
March 14, 1900, which permitted the or-
ganiation of national banks with less
than $50,000 capital. The total capital of
these comparatively new banks is $54,723,-
500, of which amount $39,315,000 repre-
seats 383 banks with capital of over $50,-
000 each. These latter figures indicate
very plainly the Southern demand for
national banks with capital of between
$5,000 and $50,000, and how well it is
Small national banks are numerous. In
Texas, for instance, out of a total of
392 national banks organized since the act
of 1900, there are 275 of the smaller class.
In Kentucky, out of 74 so organized there
are 49 of the little ones. In Virginia there
are 43 out of 09, in Alabama 34 out of 63,
in West Virginia 33 out of 62, in Georgia
32 out of 64, in Maryland 27 out of 38,
in Tennessee 24 out of 42, in North Caro-
lina 0 out of 35. Yet in some of the
Southern States the little national banks
are in the minority, State banks or trust
companies of small capital affording bank-
ing facilities to communities which would
not support institutions of large dimen-
sion. Thus in Mississippi there are on-
ly 3 small national banks out of a total
of 18 organized since 1900, in South Caro-
lina 4 out of 14, in Florida 9 out of 25,
in Louisiana 10 out of 27, and in Arkansas
13 out of 33. It is probable that with the
steady increase of population, commerce
ad industry in these States the number
of national banks therein will inereae.
There would no doubt be more of these
now but for the fact that $25,000 is the
smallest capitalization permissible for a
national bank, and consequently if a bank
is needed and that amount of capital can-
not be secured a State charter is sought
and a bank with less capital is organized.
Not a few State banks have capital of
only $5,000 each.
