RESULTS COMING TO HAND.
Some Facts and Figures That Dem-
ocrats Are Silent About.
Trade between the United States and
the Philippine Islands increased 84 per
cent during the first year's operation of
the new tariff law, which provides for
free interchange of merchandise between
those isslrtudrs and the United States.
Imports from the islands doubled dur
ing tbe period in question, and exports
thereto increased about 70 percent. TLe
new taiiff act went into effect August 6,
1909, and the figures of the bureau of
statistics of the department of com
merce and labor, stating the trade with
the islands from August 1, 190S, to July
31, 1910, show: Total imports from
the islands during the year ended July
31, 1909, 19,107,525, and during the
year ended July 3L, 1910, $18,917,372;
total exports to the islands, year euded
July 31, 1909, and in the
year ended July 31,1910, $17,517,675.
Articles That Increased.
The articles which show the principal
increases in imports are sugar, nmnila
hemp, cigars and cigarettes, copra, fibers
other than manila, hats and bonnets.
Sugar increased from a little over $1,
--000,000 in 1909 to $5,000,000 in 1910;
cigars and cigarettes, from $1,374,000 in
1909 to over $1,750,000 in 1910; manila
hemps from $7,333,000 in 1909 to $11,
--000,000 in 1910; while copra, fibers,
hats and bonnets show smaller increases.
Increase in Exports.
Oa the export side, increases occur in
a much larger number of articles. Iron
and steel manufactures increased from
$2,333,000 in 1909 to $3,500,000 in
1910; cotton cloths, from less than
$500,000 to $2,333,000; flour, from
$325,000 to $1,000,000; boots and
shoes, from $230,000 to $581,000; ex
plosives, from $917,000 to over $1,000,
--000; meat and dairy products, from
$477,000 to $652,000; while numerous
other articles show an increase.
The trade of the United States with
the Philippine Islands exceeded in 1910
that of any earlier year. Exports from
the islands in the fiscal year 1910
amounted to $17,317,897, against $12,
--(557,904 in 1905, the former high record
year, and $5,971,208 in 1900. Exports
to the islands in 1910 were $16,832,645,
against f 11.461,732 in 1908, the former
high record year, and $2,640,449 in
1900. Prior to 1900 exports to the
islands had never reached £500,000 per
annum, while imports therefrom aver
aged from five to six million, exceeding;,
however, in exceptional years, 10 million
