BAKINi POWDER CO., New York. WHEAT FOR ASIA Agricultural Department Has Prepared a Report 011 the Oriental Trade. China Used 4,500,000 Bushels Last Year, and Japan a Fifth as Much. Believed the Increased Consump tion Will Offset the Loss of European Markets. WASHINGTON*, July 15.— Some imperi al ant data as to the possibility of the ma terial extension of the foreign markets for our cereals is given in a report of the agricultural department on "United States Wheat for Eastern Asia." Ow ing to the rapid development of new wheat producing areas in other parts of the world, and the increasing competi tion, the United States is compelled to meet in European markets, the future disposal of our surplus wheat has be come an important question. It has been suggested that the changes now taking place in the civilization of Japan and China may result in the opeuiug there of markets for our wheat that will to some extent compensate us for the losses that may lx incurred through the increasing competition of other countries in the European markets that this country was formerly able to con trol. (ircat Increase In Exportation*. The report says that chief among the conditions of the plausibility of the sug gestion is the remarkable increase in our exportation* of wheat to Eastern Asia during the decade just closing. Most of this wheat is shipped in the form of flour, exports of grain being comparatively small. The total amount of wheat flour shipped to Japan and China during the entire fiscal year 189 just closed, should reach, it is stated, above 1,01)0,OOD barrels, equivalent to more than 4,500,000 bushels of wheat. The major portion of American flour went across the Pacific goes to Hong Kong and is thence distributed to other Chinese ports. Exports of flour to Japan, while considerably smaller than to China, show an increase during the last few years proportionately even greater than to China. It is esti mated that the total exports of wheat flour from this country to Japan during the fiscal year just ended amounted to 200,000 barrels. The exports of wheat in the grain have been chiefly to Japan American wheat also is sent to Eastern Asia in the form of bread and biscuits, but not in very large quantities. Of ficial statistics indicate that thecajKicity of Japan for wheat production has not increased coinmensurately with the growth in population, showing con stantly increasing depend', not* upon the ,wheat fields of other country for its supply. Are Well Worth Attention. There is abundant statistical evidence, it is cited, to show that the amount of wheat consumed per inhabitant in Japan is steadily increasing. Wheat consump tion in China also is increasing. When that great nation of 400,000,000 people is once fairly opened to foreign influences, the department believes the possibilities of the situation that may result can hardly bo overestimated. The report concludes: "Clearly, then, these Oriental coun tries are well worth the attention of the American wheat grower, especially now that Russia, Argentina and other great wheat producing countries are compet ing with us so strongly for the Euro pean market. It may be that in future Eastern Asia will afford field enough for the disposal of our surplus wheat to offset all possible losses in the markets of Europe." RUSHING IN RAW WOOL.
