by the Bureau of Foreign and Dom-
estic Commerce, Department, 40 mil-
lion dollars' worth of automobiles
and parts thereof were sent out of
continental United States in the fis-
cal year 1913, against about 1 mil-
lion dollars' worth in 1903, a decade
earlier. These figures of 1913 in-
clude 26 million dollars' worth of
finished automobiles sent to foreign
countries, about 2 1-2 million dollars'
"worth to Hawaii and Porto Rico, 4
million dollars' worth of tires, 2 mil-
lion dollars' worth of automobile en-
gines, and 5 1-4 million dollars'
worth of parts other than tires and
engines. It was only in 1902 that
the exports of automobiles became
sufficient to justify a separate record
of this class of merchandise, the
figures for that year, including the
separate parts, being less than 1 mil-
lion dollars. In 1907, five years later
they were but 6 million, and in 1910,
