Tho Foroigu unci Colonial Im
porter (London), in its Mny
number, gives its fourth and final
Japan." Extracts and abstracts
from tho nrticlo aro given bo
low: "In tho first of thoso articles wo
pointed out Hint Him Japanoso
were bound to bcoino keen com
petitors of other industrial nations
in the Eastern nmrkots, and, per
haps, before long In tho markets
of tho world. We have shown
that in the olhor leading featuros
of her national economy she is
ciWjblo of holding her own in a
foriniciablo manner; that hor po
litical position is strong, hor im
port and export trade rupidly in
creasing, and labor cheap. Tho
cheapness of hor labor is of courso
tho essenco of hor competition.
In our Inst nrticlo we gavo nn ap
proximate idea of the wngo cam
able, under tho best employers, in
tho country. "Wo carefully stated
at the time thut wo had probably
somewhat overstated tho figures,
and have Binco been in
formed that tho margin
wo gavo was a wide one.
But even at the liberal figures
recorded by us, Japanese wages
show a rednctiou on thoso earn
ablo in Europe and America of
nearly 50 per cont. and, allowing
that wo placed tho approximato
wngo 10 por cent, too high, wo
find that articles con bo made in
Japan, so far as labor is concern
ed, at one-third tho cost of tho
European articlo. To say, there
fore, that Japanoso manufactures
can bo put upon tho market at
what scorns absurd pricos is al
most a superfluous statement.
Calico is to bo bought at the
equivalent of 4 cents a yard, or
under 2d. in English money, and
flannelette at very little more;
good cotton aud merino socks aro
sold nt tho oyuivalnnt to 5d. por
pair; best strung tennis racquets
at 3a. Gd. ; tooth-brushes at Is. Gd.
a dozen; good quality hempen
aoor-mais at is. ou. eacn. nnu so i
on through all iho articles in j
domestic use. Boots and shoes of '
i-iiropoiiu pattern aro obtainable
at fis. por pair, and good felt hnts
nt 3s. Wo aro uot quoting tho prices
for tho lowest typo of nrticlo, far
from it. Even nt thoso prices tho
manufacturers make no mean pro
fit on their productions. It will
at onco bo scon, therefore, that
when Japan has had time to
organizo hor export connections
sevoro competition must follow in
thoso markets whore such articlos
as these fetch doublo tho prico.
The volume of goodB of this class
how being turned out by hor is
6normous, nud is rapidly increas
ing, and, allowing for tho inevit
able advance in wages and conse
quent cost of production, which is,
indeed, already coming about, tho
margin loft for a competing trado
is onormous, and already she lias
flooded tlrd'Eastorn markets with
cotton goods of a cheap nature.
This part of our subieot could bo
proldngod far boyond tlio space
which wo have to .devoto to it, but
wo havo snid enougli to support
olir prediction that n vast indus
trial power is gradually confront

Tho Importer goos on to show
tho enormous inoreaso within
tho Inst fow years in tho
Japanese mercantile marine. In
1870 tho total number of ships of
European form, both stoam and

tonnaao of 17,952 tons. There
