AUGUST PRICES SLIGHTLY FULL Commerce and Labor Statistics Show Decrease in Some Commodities COPPER PIGS HAVE A SLUMP Both Imports and Exports of Mill stuffs Show a Tendency to Lessen but Not Foodstuffs [Special to The Herald] WASHINGTON, Oct. 10. — Lower prices both at home and abroad are a characteristic of the latest price figures of the bureau of statistics of the de partment of commerce and labor, in the monthly summary of commerce and finance Issued by that bureau are presented weekly price quotations of certain articles in the leading markets of the United States find the .average monthly export and Import prices of the leading articles exported and im ported. These quotations are especial ly interesting because they Show not only the current wholesale prices in the leading domestic markets and the average monthly export prices of lead ing articles, but also prices in foreign countries of the principal articles im ported Into the United States. The valuation of each article imported rep resents Its actual market value, or wholesale price as bought and sold in usual wholesale quantities at the time of exportation to the United States in the principal markets of the countries whence exported, This makes the monthly and annual import quotations a fair index of the prices and trend of prices in other parts of the world with reference to the principal articles imported.
