That! g the largest over. It Is $G5,28G,

JAPAN'S COTTON MILLS.
Krom all nppenrances. Japan Is try

It Is Interesting In this connection
to note the sources from which Japan
obtains her raw rotton. From relia

ing June 20, 1903, It Is shown that
the cotton mills of Japan used 209.
r7l.ntl2 pounds of raw cotton. Of this
amount India itippllod tho groatost
quantity, 76.C73.CS3 pounds; China GO
99(i,9M pounds; ami Amerloa 5S,5tl,

not use Indian cotton nt all, and flro
did without any of tho Chlncso prod

Nineteen hundred and six was a

that better results wero hardly to bo

Is Impressed with the Inadequacy ot
adjectives to glvo full expression to
the wonderful development of the year
now drawing to a close.
Of the drawbacks, Interruptions and
what, lu Mime years, would have
proved to have been nbsolulo checks
to piogross, there wore several well
deserving of mention. Mild winter
weather lins not usually been allo
cated In tho past with present or fu
ture good trade or crops, nnd yet tho
country hnd the mlldost winter lit
years. letter on In the year, tho great
est city on the western coast was lov
eled by earthquake and flro, a shock
to financial circles which might have
been fatal In nn ordinary year. Leg
islation of a somewhat radical char
acter affecting -railroads nnd largo cor
portions, with numerous prosecutions,
of companies and Individuals, was a
marked featuro resulting from tlio pre
vious ear's moral agitation nnd uplift
In state nnd nation, without any, ap
parently, other than beneficial effects
to the country nt large. Tight money
at home nnd abroad put a strain tism
general business which resulted In
strikingly little friction. Judging from
failure returns, the most noticeable
effect being n feeling of conservatism
which proved to be beneficial. Con
gressional and state elections had lit
tle effect, tho general conclusion be
ing that tho people wero "to busy to
talk politics." Transportation conges
tion of the cutest kind, resulting In
loss of trade and some actual suffer
lug where fuel supplies wire concern
ed perhaps .irristed bin certninh
did not check progress Strikes were
numerous but execit In tho coal
moulders' and prlntlnc trades not of
long duration, owing to n spirit of
compromise and yielding on the part
of employers, who realized that tho
cost ns well ns the country's standard
of living Justllled larger compensa
tions. Some oceuriences which made the
year an especially notable one, the
final effect of which wero the Im
mense speculation In ami advance ol
land values, which,, with tho build
ing activity In some section, wns
claimed to be dangerous lo continued
prosiieruy. High money gnvo a check
to this ns It also did to the enormous
volume of speculation In mining
shares, which d her tod attention from
other markets, notably grain nnd
stocks, and to a certain extent, from
cotton, nlthoiigh the latter showed
great activity throughout the year.
Prosperity beyond precedent lu 1900
and the high standards thereby estab
lished malum prediction ns to 1907
peculiarly dllllciill. It may bo Bald,
however, that tho outlook for next
year Is very favorable. Probably never
before wa tho volume of future bus
iness booked so large. Krom three to
nine months' orders ahead are report
ed bv manufacturers, and wholesnlorr
nnd Jobbors have been active as nover
before on spring business. Perhaps
the heaviest future business done In
any lino has bo"i that booked lu Iron
nnd steel in till Its forms. And what
Is true of this generally tegnrded ba
rometer of ttade Is also largely the
case In cotton goods of alt kinds. In
addition, woolen dress Mods, hosiery
nnd knit lubrlcs, linens, to a smaller
extent silk, and copper, hardware,
rubber goods, lumber, farm machinery,
and a long list of others products nro
In excellent demand. Par from nffect
tng future trade, the high level tit an
prices seems to stimulate orerntlons,
and a close analogy to past experi
ence lu stoelc markets Is afforded lu
the active biijlng at advanced prices
now witnessed. All sections of tho
community seems to bo prosperous
nnd spending moro freely than ever
before. Threo features with n bearing
upon the futuro nro labor, prices nnd
money. Scarcity of tho flm, tnereuy
favoring further insistent damands,
and tho higher tendency of tho sec
ond, may push matters to a point
where production nnd consumption
ailko might bo checked.. The strain
In money n world-wide condition,
perhaps, but one felt hero most, be
causo prosperity haB been so pro

effects f tho forces above named and
the crop developments of 1907.
