T1TE TIMES: MAY 16, 1919
Th Amrrirnf tiRarptto has captur
ed the Orlcntnl. He is demanding
them not merely by millions but lit
erally by billions. The number of
cigarettes exported to the Orient in
tha fiscal year which ends with next
month will exceed 8,000.000,000
against lens than 2.000,000,000 In
119. and the value for the current
fiscal year will be approximately
f.000,000 against $3,400,000 In
The Oriental demand for the
American clfrarptte extends, ncoord
1ns; to a compilation by The National
City Bank of Now Tork, to practically
very country of the Asiatic contin
ent but, l especially marked In China,
Btralta Settlement, aa.l J nil la.' The
number of cigarettes went, to China
in the fiscal year -which ends with
next month will approximate 7,000,
000.000 asalnst 723,000.000 In 1915.
Straits Settlements ranks noxt to
China in the demands for American
cigarettes, due apparently to the fact
that the area for which It Is the great
distribution point, Malaysia, has .
very largo sprinkling of Chineso with
whom the American cigarette seems
to be especially popular, and its tak
ings In the current fiscal year will
be about l.Mio.ooo.ooo.
Th Bast Indian has also develope 4
a taste for American cigarettes In re
cent yetu-s. the number sent to Brit
ish India havlrrfr grown from I7S.0OO
in 1916 to 2,532,000 In 1916, 47,563.
000 In 117, and 301.027.fl00 In 1919.
To Hoc.gk.ong. a British colony, the
exports of cigarettes have grown from
100)00 in 1915 to 109.000.000 in 1917,
em d 221.99C.000 In 1918; to the Brit-
ish West Indies the exports have ln
1 creased from abeut 2,000,000 In 1918
to ZJ.OOV.OOO in lsis; while to .Eng
land the exports have grown from
Z. 739, 000 in. 1915 to 1,322,618,000 In
This increase In the exports of
American cigarettes to British terri
tory both at home and abroad may
bo the explanation of the recent tre
mendous Increase in exports of Amer
ican leaf tobacco to the United King
dom. At least it la a fact that the
exportation of leaf tobacco from the
United Suites to Great Britain Jump
ed from 825,825,723 value in the cal
endar year 1918 to J70.141.786 in the
calendar year 1918 and seems likely
to amount to over 8100,000,000 In the
llscal year 1919, bringing the-total
exports of tobacco In all forms in the
fiscal year which ends with next
month up to approximately 8200,000,
000 as against $35,605,000 in 1909,
$55,169,000 in 1913, and $152,965,000
in the calendar year 1918.
These great increases In exporta
tion of tobacco have been made In
the face of greatly increased prices.
The average export price of leaf to
bacco has advanced from 8.7c per
pound in 1900 to 11.9c in 1918; 14.7c
in 1917 and 83o per pound In the
middle of 1918. The value of to
bacco exported from the United
States since 1900 Is approximately
