SAVINGS BANKST" The third article in the British Quarterly Review for January is on Savings and Savings Banks." Tbe writer gives a brief account of the origin and progress of savings banks, and, after showing the position they have obtained at the present time, proceeds to review in detail the Post Office Saving Banks scheme, chiefly from reports issued by the Postmaster-General. While acknowledging that the scheme has been eminently successful he affirms that it has not accomplished all that was anticipated, nor is it accomplishing all that its admirable machinery adapts- it to fulfil." He therefore inquires what effect the Post Office Savings Banks have had upon the old bank system, and what hinders depositors in those old banks from ac- cepting the greater advantages of the new; points out a few defects in the system whichj if remedied, would make the institution infinitely more valuable than it is; suggests some practical means for popularising the subject and extending the education of the people in habits of thrift; offers some remarks upon the internal arrangements the Savings Bank Department of the General Post Office, and concludes with an enquiry as to the influence the Post Office Savings Bank scheme has had upon Foreign and Colonial Governments. We commend the article to the consideration of all who are interested in pro- moting habits of thrift among the poorer classes, and would call especial attention to the remarks of the writer upon Penny Banks and the suggestions for popularising Savings Banks by the formation of social societies to which membership can only be obtained by becoming Saving Bank depositors.
