Washington, Feb. 27. Unprecedent
ed prosperity is being enjoyed by the
Philippine islands principally as a re
sult of free trade between them and
the United States, and the cry ol
hard times' there no longer can be
raised, say the members of the Philip
pine commission in their report for
1911. The United States hag shared
in this prosperity by increasing its
exports to the archipelago to $49,800,-
000 or more than $12,500,000 during the
year. Free trade has resulted in in
creased revenues to the Filipinos In
sugar and tobacco and an improve
ment in the market for copra.
The opening of new railway lines In
various parts of the islands has result
ed in stimulating industry and foster
ing production, the territory through
which they pass having awakened to
the development of agricultural In
dustries. A steady and healthy
growth of the postal savings bank.
Filipino depositors having increased
171 per cent over the number of the
Health conditions of the entire is
lands never have been better than dur
ing the past year.
FINDINGS Of COMMISSION.
The annual report of the Philippine
commission for the fiscal year 1911 has
Just been Issued by the bureau of insu
lar affairs, war department The fol
lowing is a summarization of the re
The result of the legislation by con
gress, which practically granted free
trade between the islands and the
United States, has surprised even its
most optimistic friends and advocates.
The second year of experience with
this law has shown a decrease of $2,
000,000 in exports to the United States
but a considerable increase in the im
ports from the United States. The
fact that the markets of the United
States were open to the pro
ducts of the islands has result
ed in an increase in the price of sugar
and tobacco and an improvement in
the market for copra, but these pro
ducts, as heretofore, have found their
way to the natural markets in the
nearby countries of the orient.
The total value of imports into the
islands during the year amounted to
$49,833,722 as compared with $37,067,
C30 for 1910. The United States
headed the list of countries with 40
per cent of the total importations as
against 30 per cent in 1910.
The total value of exports was $39,
778,629 as compared with $39,717,960
the previous year. Exports to the
United States decreased from $18,793,
678 in 1910 to $16,813,864, but this
country still occupies first place, tak
ing over 40 per cent of the total ex
ports. The principal articles of ex
port are hemp, copra, sugar, tobacco,
cigars, and cigarets.
For the first time since 1904 the bal
ance of trad was against the islands
to the extent of $10,055,093. This dif
erence, however, is less than at first
appears if we take into consideration
the value of articles imported free of
duty by the army and navy, the gov
ernment of the Philippine islands, and i
the government-aided railways. These
importations, amounting in value to
$4,865,933, have been included in the
figures for 1911 for the first time.
There was an increase in customs
revenues of nearly $1,000,000 and in
internal revenue of more than $1,500,-000.
Tranquility has reigned throughout
the islands with only such disturbanc
es as might be expected in any com
munity, and having no other than a
purely local significance.
BUILDING OF RAILROADS.
Railroad construction has progress
ed steadily during the year. The main
lines in the islands of Panay and Cebu
are in full operation and only short
branch lines remain to be laid.
Ia Luzon the work on the northern
lines is nearly complete and the con
struction on the lines south of Manila
is being rapidly pushed. AH portions
in operation have proved unexpectedly
productive from the start.
The opening of these lines had an
almost magical effect In stimulating
industry and fostering production.
The territory traversed, which had
been abandoned, has experienced an I
agricultural awakening. The province I

The U. 5. Government Takes No Chances on the
Kind Of Security It Demands For Its Dollars
Can You .Afford to Take
Chances With Your Dollars?
npHE U. S. GOVERNMENT
JL accepts our City and Town and
County Bonds as security for the
deposits of its Postal Savings Banks.
Yon have $500 or more that you would like to be re
ceiving an income on but in deciding where to
invest your money, you demand:
1. Safety beyond all question.
2. Highest possible rate of interest.
3. A fixed value so that you will not be troubled
with any falling in market price of your investment.
Safety The U. S. Government ranks our City and Town
Bonds with its own Bonds (Government Bonds).
You know what absolute safety that means.
Interest Our City and Town and County Bonds draw
4 to 54 payable each six months. This is
the highest rate of interest we know of in connec
tion with absolute safety.
Value When the time arrives for the city or town to pay
back the money borrowed from you and for which
the city or town gave you its Bond you will receive
every dollar you loaned. The Bonds of Cities and
Towns and Counties increase in value steadily because
they are widely known, and there is a constant and
competing demand for them as investments, for in
dividuals, Banks and Estates.
A Municipal Bond is a first tax lien on all the Public
and all the Private property t and on the taxes of a
city or town or county.
A Municipal Bond is as sure as taxes for a specific tax
is levied against all the public and all the private
property of the community, and this tax is made
large enough to pay the interest on the bonds each
six months, and also to set aside enough to pay
the principal when it is due.
Taxes Must Be Paid So a Municipal
Bond Is Sure of Being Paid
These are the reasons why the U. S. Government has decided
that our Municipal Bonds are an absolutely safe security for the
investment of money. You can profit by the Government's
Searching Investigation and its decision. We shall be glad to
give particulars by letter or in a personal interview.
