WASHIN'OTON. Aug. ?3.-(epeclal.)-The
buearu of th9 census has Just puhllshod
a bulletin on the manufacture of musical
Instruments, there were 5 establlehments
engaged In this Industry In l. They em
ployed S6,KX) wagn earners, reported an
aggregate capital of (7.326,379, and manu
factured products jo the, value of i9.57i,S1.
Five years before when the censjs of
1900 eras taken, the number of establish
ments reported tor this Industry was CIS;
total number of wane earners, 23,714; the
argregate capital, H7.704.&F2, and the value
of products Mi.fU.978. . .
Comparison of the figures for these two
censuses shows that there was an Increase
In the five-year Interval (1PC0 to lfc) of
$2S.155,3t.l, or 66.6 per cent, In the value of
products; I25,t1s,797, or SI. 4 rer cent, In the
amount of capital employed, and 11,806, or
48.5 per rent. In the number of wage earn
ers. The establishments In the meantime
Increased by only six, or aoout 1 per cent.
This comparatively small Increase In the
number of establishments Is more or less
characteristic of all lines of Industry In
recent years, being Indicative of the ten
dency toward production on a large scale
or of combinations.
It Is evident from an Inspection of the
figures publlKhed In this bulletin that the
musical Instrument Industry made much
greater progress In' the five years between
1SKK) and 1W than U did In the ten years
between 1SP0 and 1900. .Taking the value of
the .product as furnishing, perhaps, the
best Indication of growth, It will be found
that this Item shows an advance from
tM.E6S.169 In 1KW to 144,418,978 in 0O. which
waa an Increase of only ri.BSO.K. or M.5
per cont, as compared with the remarkable
Increase of over i:6.0fifl,000. or 86.8 per cent,
In the five years between 1900 and 1905.
rrtnHpal Prodncln tnte.
The leading slate In production of musical
Instrumenta Is New York, which reported
,t.,t tv the value of $:4,277.927. repre
senting more than one-third of the total
product of the United States, me siai
ranking next In Importance as regards this
Industry was Illinois,' for which the ag
gregate product was $18,997.-28. Next comes
Massachusetts, with a product of $8,638,073;
then Connecticut, "with a product of
S79.WS. ."'.".' . . .
. New York has been a leader in im fnr. mora than 4wenty-rtve years.
Massachusetts was the second state In Im
portance In 18S0 and again In 1W, but In
1900 was outranked by Illinois. In which
state the recent development of the in
dustry has been very rapid.- -
