a-hlngtou. July 13. It is now practicable
to determine the effect of the drought of
1SSJ1 upon the export trade of 1SW2. The Tieas-
ury Bureau of Statistics has Jut completed
Its prellmlnar figures- on the exports of
breadsttiffs and provisions, and. as thVy
show about &7 per rent of the total expor's.
u reasonable accurate measurement of the
exportation of articles affected by the
urought of last jrar can now be made. The
tables show the exports (quantities, and
value) of corn and cornmeal, oats -ind oat
meal, wheat, flour and other brradstnffs.
aIo live rattle, fresh beef and other beef
products, as well as other provisions.
The direct and most marked reduction,
of course. i in corn, which was most large
ly affected by the drought of 1901. The ex
portation of corn at the principal port",
.shown b the preliminary of the Bureau
oi Statistics, amounts to 2.l).frt) bushels
in the tiwal ear ending June 30. 1S03. as
against 17&i0.li bushels at the same iorts
In the preceding year, the value for lt: be
ins JlG..t. as against S.CArt.iW In the pre
ceding ypar. a reduction of Jtt.uo.iW
Reduction In Corn Exports.
Tl.e complete figures will probably show
the total expor?. at about ST.iiO.tXs bushel,
as against ISI.OO.iVO bushels In the preceding
year. Exportation of cornmeal have also
fallen from SS.0 4.0X1 in 1541 to $l.VO.rt'W In
1J02. making the total reduction In corn ex
prts. In round term, as shown by the pre
liminary figures. W7.0Cv.UVl. Compared with
the fiscal year !. the reduction Is still
greater. The corn exports of the fiscal year
15'0 were the largest In th history of our
exrort trade, having amounted to 21X13.412
bushels, while for the year Just endd the
complete figures will amount to about I7
B-it the effect of the drought upon the
exports trade did not stop with co"m.
thouch In this Item it is most largely appar
ent. The reduction In the quantity of corn
available for live stock naturally Increase-
the consumption of oats"and. as a result, the
exportation of oats fell off from 37.om.OX)
bushels In tho fiscal year 1501 to 19.0f4.0frt

exports of breadstuff, clearly traceaole to
the drought, was: Corn and cornmeal. Jo7.

Mnrkril Reduction In llrrr.
Two other marked reductions In the ex
ports of agriculture are bef. Including live
cattle, and cotton. The exportation of live
cattle has fallen from Wl4 In 1W1 to 319.
v In IWZ. the exportation of fresh beef
from 33).ovx pounds In 1S01 to M0iYiVO9
pounds In !? and the total value of cattle
and ber products has fallen from tlt.OXJ.OV

the reduced prices, the quantity exported

One other Item of export which will show
a marked reduction during the last yar l
Iron and steel. While the total figures of
exports have not been received by the Bu-
remi of Statistics. suflVlent have been r.e-
crlved to justify an estimnte 'hat the re
duction In exports of iron and steel will
amount In round terms to J30.OVJ.OX. due. In
a large measure, to Increase In the home i'r
mand upon our mnrufacturers. and In part
to the decreased demand abroad. Th prin
cipal reduction In the export trade of the
year will then stand:
