THE BANK OF NAMPA
Among the towns of Idaho which are fast coming to the front and which are making that State one of the most desirable in the West is Nampa. Its is here that business is carried on in an energetic and open handed way and the merchants of that city are strictly up to date and progressive. That merchants do make a town is generally conceded and after one discovers the hustling, bustling stores, it is natural to inquire as to the status of the home bank. The Bank of Nampa is the oldest bank in the city and one of the best known in the State. The report of this bank shows conclusively that it can be ranked with any of the banks throughout the country in comparison with population.

It was founded in 1899 and the capitalization is $50,000. The directors of the company are all men of sound business ability and alive at all times to the opportunities afforded to those who come to Idaho. They wanted a good sound banking institution and when the Bank of Nampa was organized these men gave it their full support, both moral and financial. The officers are all men drilled in the hard school of experience and men who have studied the banking business from ground up It is that fact, coupled with the sure to win methods of fair dealing and prudent, progressive policy that have made this bank one of the strongest and most substantial in the entire Gem State. The officers have at all times been willing to advance money on the legitimate enterprises which the State affords, and their experience in the business has qualified them to distinguish between the legitimate and the doubtful projects, an absolutely safe policy being at all times the one followed.

The officers of the bank are: John W. Givens, president; J. A. Givens, vice president; T. E. Munhall, cashier; C. E. Lore, assistant cashier. All of these men have been from ten to twenty years learning the many intricacies of the business and the success of the institution can be traced to the strict business principles, and honest and fair methods employed and the progressiveness of the men at the helm. Far sighted to a degree, they have built the business up from a small country bank to one of prominence and importance The directors, namely, John W. Givens, J. S. Hickey, C. R. Hickey, J. A. Givens, and Eugene Emerson, are all men prominent in business circles in Nampa and of the State, and they have helped to make the bank what it is today. They all have faith in the future of Idaho, and naturally of Nampa, and that this town will some day be one of the biggest in the State is their prediction. Banking on this and being assured that this will be soon, they are building up one of the foundations for a big city, a banking institution which is worthy of the name and of the men who are behind it.
