Some Figures of Imports.
"Washington, Juno 1C Frank H.
Hltchock, chief of tho section of for
eign markets of tho agricultural de
partment, has prepared a bulletin
showing tho sources of tho agricultural
imports of tho United States for tho
period from 1896 to 1900. It shows
that the total value of agricultural
produce imported into tho United
States in 1900 was $420,139,288, that
ytfar being the record year of the five.
Tho annual averago was $376,3G9,3G8.
Europe was decidedly tho most im
portant source of agricultural imports,
America taking from that country in
1900 $129,000,000 worth of farm pro
ducts, being the largest in recent
years, except in 1897, when $152,000,000
Asia in 1900 sent $101,000,000 in agri
cultural produce, a rapid riso from
$66,000,000 in 1896. The farm produce
imports from Oceauica also rose' rap
idly, being $31,000,000 in iOOO, against
$22,000,000 in 1896, while, on the other
hand, there was a falling off of $2,
000,000 in imports of farm products
from North American countries, there
being $83,000,000 In 1900, against $85,
000,000 In 1895.
The imports, however, in the three
years preceding 1900 were larger than
this. There was a big railing off in
agricultural imports from South Amer
ica, being $93,000,000 in 1896 and only
$64,000,000 in 1899 and $66,000,000 in
1900. African farm produce Imports
declined from $10,400,000 in 1896 to $6,
700,000 in 1898 and, rose again in 1900
to $10,600,000. - . .
Brazil, owing to. its heavy coffee
trade, holds the foremost placQ in the
ranks of countries -sending coffee sup
plies, her total for 190Q being $39,287,7

000. Imports from there, however,
havo been steadily decreasing. In 1896
they were $60,668,000. The United
Kingdom ranks noxt to Brazil with
$32,606,000 worth of farm products ex
ported to the United States in 1900, a
gain over tho two immediately preced
ing years, but a loss of $15,000,000 as
compared with 1897.Chicago Chronicle.

Plots In South America.
The recent statement in these col
umns that differences among tho
South American statos were probably
being fomented by European nations
Is in a fair way of being speedily veri
fied. Sincov Venezuela became enraged
at the United States over the Trini
dad asphalt case her government has
been flirting with Europe. A war ves
sel of a European country was re
cently discovered making soundings
near tho island of Trinidad. The gov
ernment of Colombia, which is very
friendly to tho United State? and with
other American republics, impressed
with tho importance of maintaining
the Monroe doctrine as tho only salva
tion of tho Latin-American, republics,
made some diplomatic protests to
Venezuela and demanded an explana
tion. Tho reply was that the conces
sions were purely of a commercial na
ture, not Involving tho fornlcrn crov-
ernment officially, but only some of
its citizens. The answer was in no
wise satisfactory to tho Colombian
government, "which is making prep
arations to provent even the alleged
commercial concessions, though it be
necessary to uphold its contention by
force of arms. Colombian troops Aro
being concentrated on the border, and,
considering tho excitable character of
tho Venezuelans, a war is fairly In
prospect. Interest Is added to tho
situation by tho fact that tho com
mander of tho Colombian army is an
American and a graduate of West
Point. Ho also, holds a commission
as a general in the armies of tho other
Central American states. In those dis
putes or possiblo wars between the
Latin-American states is a reminder
that a severe test to the efficacy of
tho Monroe doctrine is Impending in
the not distant future. In tho mean
time, let tho work on our battleships
progress with all possiblo speed.-
"I suppose," said tho admiring
fatlter to his daughter just before
graduation day, "that there aro very
fow branches of human learning in
which you do not feel well informed."'
"Well," she confessed gently, "there
is. ono subject on which I have some
doubts. I don't quito know what to
wear." Washington Star.
