The com missi! n report that they visited the capitals of Great Hri.aiu, France, -th- Netherlands, Germany, and Russia ai:d presented to those countries the genera' subject of adopting in the silver-using countries a currency system In sed upon gold. They di reel eel thir work i.rimnj-lly to securing the appro val of the leading ivers to a plan for a gold-exchange standard in China; but incii'.enUy asked the European power to adopt a similar system in their dependencies, in the Orient and to j adopt a coinage- unit issued in each country at substantially the same ra tio to goid. The .American commission was , ac companied on its tour by a commis sion of the Republic of Mexico and th3 two commissions co-cperated in the presentation of their mission to the European powers. A special commis sion to confer with them was apfcint d by the government of each, country i-is-:t-d. It is declared in th report that these commissioners have in all ca&.-s been men cf eminence in their iespectie countries by reaaon of their I n-'-nc ial and official positions. Thus. It thrw countries France, Germany, and Kussia the herd of the national bank of issue was chairman of the? commission.

Advantages of an Exchange. The commission refers to the uncer tainties introduced into trad? by the fluctuations of exchange between gold nnu silver countries and say that the adoption of a stable exchange, by rem edying these conditions, would untitles- j CJLCCNMT 5,i ttrCl-v'.'-' tionably stimulate the importation in to China of the products of European and American mills anel factories. Many of these importations would bi In the form of advances of capital for the development of the rich natural resources of China. These Investments would be iiia.de in the form of rails md rolling slock for new railways, equipment for factories, and supplies Tor the laborers engageii in extending railways and modern industrial methods throughout China. It is declared that if a new syst"m be established in China il should be placed on the gold basis at once, be cause in that way foreign nations and China herself will begin to get the benefits at once. Should the system bo begun on the silver basis, with the In- j tention of establishing the silver coins later on a parity with gold, there ' -would be no appreciable benefit to in ternational trade until this parity were, established. While the inteiior trade! of the country would to some extent: 1... v' ; if.'. h:MimMk0m i L r--;&iihzcutt&-tf- i &&L tvli be encouraged by a national currency upon any uniform basis, a change in China might postpone for many years the benefits sought in establishing stable 'monetary relations between China and foreign errantries. The experience of other countries is cited to demonstrate the practicability of the proposed svstein. It is declared: The Plan for China. The plan proiosed for China is bas ed upon what is commonly called the gold-exchange standard, similar to the plan recently adopted by the congress of the I'nited States for the Philip pines end to th- plan which has been in operation in the Netherlands and the Dutch East Indies for twenty-eight years. The successful maintenance of this plan in the Netherlands for so on a period, covering- fine tuitions of more than 50 per cent in the sold value of silver, and the more recent success of a similar plan in Pritish India. ia the face also of grt?a.t fluctuations in siler, disivl many of the doubts- which might arise, in the absence of such historical evidence, of the practicabil ity of the plan recommended for China. A similar system has recently been adopted by the Russian government for Kokhara and is about to be- adopted by Mexico for her own currency, by Great Pritain 'for the Straits Settle ments, and by France for jitdo-Ciiina. In discussing- the efl'ecN of the gold exchajigesyste.m upon the price of sil ver itiillion the commission states that there was suggested to the various govei pmeiits the wisdom of so distributing- the purchases irt silver which .might be actually required by them for .coinage . purposes as to c'usc as little disturbance as' jKissible cf the market. It is declared tli-t it would be unwise for any government to r.t tempt to maintain the price of silver by purchasing bejond its regular needs and storing- or ccrinir.g it, and that no one whose knowledge of the monetary -history cf the past few years is at ai! complete would advocate such a cours?. The propriety of so distribut ing the demand for a.n article, how ever, as not to unduly disturb the ma:kct is recognized in many fields, especially in the market for money. whose prudent distribution is tne sub ject constantly of preoccupations in the highest circles of finar.ee. If the ratio adopted by the different govern ments that are now about Instituting new systems of coinage were fixed, as sugge-sed, at apout 32 to 1. that fact in itself would practically compel thise governments, -without any formal agreement, to suspend their purchases whenever the rrice of silver per ounce rose to 2Sd. or 29d. It would obviously be entirely contrary to sound policy for any government to increase Its pur chases of silver bullion beyond it3 legitimate and usual needs, and it is net to be expected that any gold stindard country will take steps to in crease its present use of silver or to modify its existing monetary system. A General Agreement. The commission summed up the re sults of their consultation with the European powers in the following term?: The representatives of all the powers consulted, as has already been stated, accepted in a general way as desir able and practicable the suggestion madf" by ths commission of the I'niied Stftes. The character of these appro vals warrants the statement that the work of the commission up to this time has been entirely successful. lif ferencfs of opiniorr in regard to de tails were naturally encountered at different capitals, but they were over come in many cases by muUial discus sion and comparison of views.

One cause of the redu-tion of im pel ts, from the Unit?J St-.ts ir.t. Ji pan since 1900 is th? fact that that s country is ia recent years buying mc;'C largely cf her raw cotton from : India. The totBl value of imports int ' Japan from India has grewn from ls.- than 8 million yen in li2 to 49 million yen in 1902, and in the six months end ing with June, 1003. was 39.690.954 yn. The importations cf ginned cotton into Japan from the United States amount ed in 1900 to 1.112.K34 piculs an.! m 1002 ta 731.800 pieuls. while frcm India th? imnorts of ginned cotton in l- were 73.').i73 pieuls and in 12. I.iSvIn pieuls. Tiie value of imixujs of raw er, t ton frcm the I'nited States in A was 27 million yen and in 1"2. 1 mil lion yen. while lhat from India was. in 1910. 17 million yen, ami in I'.'C. million yen. .This partial transfer of the coita:i trade from the United States to India accounts for Ihe tact that he percenr age which the United States supplie I of the total impcts of Japan in 10 and ihe first half of YMZ was less than in lit'M), in which year we supplil 21 W per ce.at. of the total imports of Japan.
