That Amount Was Spent by Ameri cans for Sparklers in Last Fiscal Year. Increased Demand Has Fostered a New Industry, the Culling of Diamonds. from The Journal Bureau, Boom 45, Post Build ing. Washington. Washington July 10 More than thirty million dollars* worth of diamonds and othei precious stones were brought into the United States in the fiscal year just ended The department of commerce and labor thru its bureau of statistics state ments shows that the total Importations of diamonds and othei precious stones in the eleven months ending with May amounted to over $28 000 000 in value and as the figures for the month of May alone were about $3 000 000, it is e\ ident that the June figures will bring the grand total of diamonds and other precious stones up to a full $30,000,000 for the fiscal year end ing June 30, 1903 This is the largest Importation of dia monds and other precious stones ever shown in a single year of our commerce Prior to 1S87 the total had seldom if ever reached $10 000 00 per annum, from 1887 to 1893 the total gradually moved upward until it reached $16 000 000 then It rap Idly fell to $5 500 000 in 1894 $7 500 000 in 1895 $6 575 000 in 1896 and $2 500 000 in the fiscal year of 1897 In 1898 the total increased to nearly $9 000 000 in 1902 to $23 000 000 and in 1903 it will be fully $30 000 000 making the total for the ear Just ended not only more than in any pre ceding year, but 50 per cent in excess of 1901 double the figures of 1899 and more than six times the average during the period of 1894-7 A New American Industry. This rapid growth in the importation of diamonds while it suggests general pros perity, also seems to indicate the develop ment of a comparatively new industry in the United States, the cutting of dia monds The total importations of dia monds alone in the eleven months end ing with May amounted to $24 000 000 and of other precious stones $4 500 000 Of the $24 000 000 worth of diamonds imported $10 000 000 were uncut diamonds, this total of $10 000 000 of uncut diamonds is a large increase compared with the im portations of uncut diamonds in preceding years, the figures for eleven months ol the year 1902 being $5 500 000 while for the corresponding period of 1901 they were $6 500 000, for the corresponding months of 1900 $3 500 000 and for the correspond ing months of 1898 but a little over $2 000 - 000 The diamonds imported are divided by the bureau of statistics statements into two groups, viz "Diamonds uncut, in cluding miners', glaziers and engraver's not set," and "diamonds cut but not set " The value of diamonds uncut including miners*, glaziers', etc, imported in the eleven months ending with May has grown from $2 500 000 in 1898 to $10 000,000 in 1903, while that of diamonds cut but not set has grown fiom $4,000 000 in 1898 to $14 000 000 in 1903 these figures being In each case for the period of eleven months. The Board Must Decide Whether "Rossed" Wood Is a Manufac tured Product. I! New York Sun Special Service. New York, July 10Many strong pro tests have been filed with the board of United States appraisers in regard to the assessment of duty on certain lumber im ported from Canada into the United States for the purpose of manufacturing it into wood pulp, and a question which has been agitated recently by directions from the treasury department, ordering the assess ment of duty on such lumber, will shortly be presented to the board for its decision Numerous protests, also are pending before the board on classification and de velopments are being watched by import ers all along the borders of the great lakes, whose Interests are closely linked with those of Importers in the case now before the board Duty at the rate of 20 per cent ad va lorem has been levied on merchandise which is commercially known as Rossed ' pulp wood, being blocks or stocks rough hewn under section 200 of the tariff act of 1897 The logs were sawed into lengths, having their bark removed, or "Rossed," which the government con tends renders them manufactured Protests were Immediately forthcoming, the importers setting up the contention that lumber is entitled to free entry under paragraph 699 The case Is to come up the latter part of July It is reported there Is a great deal of uncertainty on the part of the authorities on the subject Until recently the class of lumber in ques tion has been brought into the United States without having to pay duty )12 60 to Detroit, Mich., and Back, Account Epworth League Convention.

This inference, that the cutting of dia monds is becoming an important industry in the United States, which is suggested bv the rapid increase in the importation of uncut diamonds, is strengthened by the fact that the census statistics on "lapidary work" show that the total value of pro duction of lapidary work in 1900 was over $5 500 000 against less than $500,000 in 1890 and that the value of the materials used in this work in 1900 was over $4 500,- 000 against less than $250 000 in 1890.

I New York, July 10In reply to the statement that railroad men at large do not take ver seriously the newest plan of James J Hill to make China a wheat consuming country, statistics are pro duced showing that exports of flour to Hongkong and British China in 1892 were 471,408 barrels and in 1902, including Rus sian China, 1,549,032 barrels While the total flour exports of the United States to all countries have in creased in ten years about 16 per cent, exports to China have increased about 200 per cent It is argued from this that there is a great future in China for the flour and wheat trade It is a fact that the orient has, during the current year, developed a most remarkable demand for American flcfur A good demand also comes from Japan and is believed to originate with the gov ernment of the empire During the month Just past the Nippin Yusen Kalsha Ori ental, Canadian Pacific and Pacific Mail company carried to Japan over 75,000 bar rels of flour apiece, making the total for the month something over 300,000 and orders have been placed for similar ship ments in the future The demand for this season of the year Is unprecedented There is no wheat shortage in Japan so far as known Perhaps the government is storing up flour in view of the possibility of a war with Russia Sunbonnet Baby Fans Free.
