Importation of luxuries Into the
United States is now running at th3
rate of a million dollars a day. Of
course the term 'iuxorles" is an elas
tic one and Its applicability determ
ined, to some extent, by the "view
point from which used; but it Is al
least a fact that during the month of
October, 1912, the imports included 11
million dollars' worth of art works;
G million dollars' worth of tobacco,
cigars, and other smokers' articles; 4
million dollars' worth of diamonds
and other precious stones; 4 million
dollars' worth of laces and embroid
eries; over a million dollars' worth
cf feathers, natural and artificial;
more than a million dollars worth of
decorated china; over a million dol
lars' worth of toys; nearly a million
dollars worth of champagne, cordials,
liqueurs, and other articles of this
class; nearly a million dollars' worth
cf cabinet woods, of which mahogany
formed the principal part; and sundry
other articles usually considered as
luxuries, bringing the total imports of
this class of materials for the month
of October up to 32 million dollars.
While the heavy importation of ar
ticles of this character naturally oc
curs during the closing months of th3
year, the figures of October are ex
ceptionally high, probably the highest
on record as regards import at ious of
luxuries, this being due in a consid
erable degree to the unprecedented
importation of art works, thi.n single
item having amounted to practically
14 million dollars in the month of Oc
tober, against 4l million dollars in
October of last year; while for t ho U
months ended with October the toti.1
importation of art works was 49 mil
lion dollars, against lStfc million in
the corresponding months of 1911 and
14 ' million in the corresponding
monrhs ot 191').
These high figures for October and
he accumulated months ended with
October suggest that the impcrts of
articles which may fairly U cicssol
us luxuries will pro'.ably aggregate
250 million dollar in the calendar
year 1912. Of this sum art works will.
according to the latest estimate of the
Statistical Division of the Bureau of
Foreign and Domestic Commerce, ap
proximate 70 million dollars; precious
stones, between 40 and 50 million dol
lars; laces and embroideries, between
40 and 60 million ; cigara, cigarettes,
and other articles for uso of smokers,
between 40 and 50 million; and num
erous other articles of less value. In
cluding toys, approximately 9 million
dollars; champagns, about 5 million
dollars; feathers, natural and artifi
cial (chiefly ostrich feathers), about
10 million dollars; bead 3 and bead or
naments, a couple of million dollars;
automobiles, a couple of million dol
lars; and perfumeries and cosmetics,
nearly 2 million dollar's.
All the world profit by this dis
tribution, for luxuries, of 250 million
dollars a year of American money. Of
the art works Imported, of course the
bulk comes from Europe, - most of
them the product of labor performed
many years ago, since a very large
proportion of the art works now be
ing imported are twenty yeara old or
over and a considerable share 100
years c!d or over. The forty-odd mil
lion dollars' worth of diamonds and
other precious stones Imported,
tho:irh chit fly drawn from Europe,
are in most favs the product of South
Afrk-p, ami this is true alio of the
sev. ial million dollars worth of os
tri k feathers inverted. Of the forty
oid million dollars' worth of tobacco,
cigars, uv.i cigarettes imported, the
largest .siiilc contributor is ('nba,
thoiigh probably It) million dollars'
worth of tho total originates in the
Dutch East Indies, half way round thej
the Near Orient, chiefly Turkey in Eti-J
rope, Asia and Africa. Of the forty !
odd million d,.llarr, worth of laces aad!
embroideries imported, a very lare'
proportion is from Europe. j
