produces about H.uoo.OOO pounds of
iiliuoiuls in n ear. or two-thirds of the
amount required f''r domestic consumption,
nnd i he other almonds are
imported from Kiiropciin countries,
from which, until a few years ago, nil
the almonds were sent. The figures oi
iiliuopd importations for the fiscal

countries which were under foreign
jurisdiction nt the time of the last annual

of the Cuban war for independence

With the beginning of the war it
and under the preiiciit tariff tho

The fonipetition of Aiuericnu with foreign
coeoiinuts, the latter from the
West Indies and South American
stales, has been more aetle in the

chief source of supply of American
encoauuts is Florida, which is in closer
proximity to the New York market.
The annual product of Florida cocoa-nuts
amounts to about 7,(100,000 pounds,
