Japarl's commerce is about equally divided be tween imports and exports, but in the case of China and Asiatic llusria im ports greatly exceed exports, and this is also true of Hongkong, which passes most of its imports on into China and draws' from China most of the artii-les which becomes its exports.

The more important of the exports of the United States to the stctioik in question are cotton and cotton goods, kerosene, flour, lumber, manufactures of iron and steel, manufacturers of leather and tobacco. Raw cotton ex ported to this particular section of the world goes chiefly to Japan, and the market in Japan for American cot ton is influenced largely by the sur plus of cotton in India, which is of shorter staple and therefore of lower price. In years of short supply in India Japan turn.s to the United Stales for its raw cotton, but in years of plentiful supply in India a. large pro portion t.f the raw- cotton iurchr-se3 of Japan are the product of India. In cotton manufactures to China in tha important customer. The- rxports of cottor manufacturers to China in the past year have materially fallen off. though the reduction in imports cf American -cotton into China is no greater proportionately than the re duction in such impcrts from other countries. This reduction in im portations of cotton goods . into China is due in part - to the un settled conditions which have prevail ed during the year, and in part to the increased importations of cotton yar.' and increased demestic production of cotton goods. Keiosene is an even more important item in our exports to the Orient, and in this article the trade is -barely hold ing its own, kerosene from Russia and Sumatra proving a very active -com petitor. To China the exports of min eral oils from the United States flue tuatt greatly, ranging all the way from I 20 to 55 million gallons per annum. In ' 1301. for example, the total .was 27,- 000.000 gallons; in 1002, 57,000.000. and in 1903, about 20 millions. To Hcng kong the shipments are more steady, ranging from 13 to 18 million gallons per annum. To Japan the shipments alno fluctuate in some degree, though not so greatly as in the case of China. In 1S90 the total to Japan was 32,000,000 gallons; in 1902, 59,000,000, and in 1903, S5,flC0.CC0. Flour as a. factor in our export trade to the Orient has of Ute attracted con- . 'V.
