Trade with United States. ,
Trade with the United States showed a decrease, according to qli
customs figures, hut the apparent decrease in the value of ep`cagi
is not borne out by the declared returns made on invoices :erti
at this consulate. According to these invoices, exports increased i
value from $4,898,719 in 1916 to $6,931,011 in 1917. The priej#i
exports to the United States were Oolong tea, camphor, and sgr,
the last-named commodity appearing for the first time as an SL
of export to that country. The value of the Oolong tea purehso'
increased from $2,968,484-in 1916 to $3,654,566 in 1917, alth ghi
there was a small decrease in the quantity--from 18,863 55..to
18,314,251 pounds. Camphor also showed a gain in value ad .laa
in quantity; 6,423,000 pounds, valued at $1,902,924, were export
in 1916, and 5,089,000 pounds, valued at $1,923,579, in 1917. Nqgc
to the amount of 29,523,200 pounds, valued at $1,330,047, wasS p;
ported to the United States. ..
Direct American imports into Taiwan showed a large ie
the figures for 1916 and 1917 being, respectively, $3T9,32"
$1,070,686. The largest.item, as usual, was petroleum, whine
creased from $200,977 to $275,717. Condensed milk deereiagid
value from $82,779 to $76,037. There was a large demand fto
steel rails and tin plates for the manufacture of alcohol cOn
but on account of American export restrictions these were iat
trained in the quantities desired. .i
Other Countries Tradiag with Talwan.
Taiwan's trade with China, the leading foreign country deal"i
with the island, continued to increase. Exports to that country
creased from $5,179,013 in 1916 to $7,178,008 in 1917, while its
ports increased from $3,653,438 to $4 684,861. China's chief pu
chases consisted of dried and salted Ash, sugar, cotton cloth,
matches. Of these cotton cloth and matches were reexports'ftihn
Japan.
Exports to Hongkong increased from $891,265 in 1916 W4

Hongkong's purchases consisted of saar, the exports of this product
tp that colony increasing from $367,14 in 1916 to $2,708,953 in 1917.
JBeides sugar the principal prodijA exported to Hongkong were
Since, coal, alcohol, and the reexports of matches and cotton cloth.
.Trade with the Dutch East Indies showed a gain in both imports
and exports as compared with the 1916 figures, imports increasing
hom $118,022 to $172,522, and exports from $803,566 to $1,135,012.
T -gain mn exports seems to have been due to increased sales of
.natche and Pouchong tea, and that in exports was principally due
'S" after purchases of petroleum.
I'Tl ade with the United Kingdom showed a falling off in both im-
: ts and exports, the imports for 1916 and 1917 being $615,025 and
fl7,223, respectively, and exports $389,534 and $373,918.
Exports to the Kwantung Leased Territory showed an increase
'saI $82,510 to $741,347, due to greater purchases of sugar and
alcohol.
A.fere was a gain in imports from Australia, but a large decrease
*lexports to that country, the. latter being due to the fact that less
ttevar was sent than in 1916.

Oglet port Products of Taiwan.
.Sgaer continued to be the principal item of export from Taiwan,
921 855,118 pounds, valued at $419,83,781, having been exported in
i ,187. This figure represents more than 57.7 er cent of the value
I di the entire export trade of the island. The increase over the
figures for 1916 amounted to 112010,016 pounds in quantity and
$10,648,049 in value. Rice exports showed an increase of 10,461,816
Sounds in quantity and $2,403,886 in value. About 97.5 per cent of
Mfe rice went to Japan, where very high prices prevailed. Camphor
i iowed a falling off only 8,126,855 pounds, valued at $2,812 492
ha ving been exported, as compared with 10,412,447 pounds, valued
at $3,076,744, in 1916. Less of it was sent to every purchasing
: country although at a slightly higher rate. None was sold to
b Asiatic Russia.
: "Camphor oil, practically all of which as usual went to Japan, also
Showed a decrease, the figures for 1916 and 1917 being, respectively,
S681,673 pounds, to the value of $1,153,57, and 5,270,533 pounds,
WLiM d at $920,653. Less camphor was produced because of typhoons,
| tiv:46 ities of hostile savages in the districts where camphor trees
gE and shortage of laor, due to increased demand for workers
i.' e sugar and other industries.
.,I" Icohol is another Formosan product, which is exported almost
l.. to Japan. The 1917 figures showed a large gain in quantity

l&ld B2e at Oolerg Tea.
iwas a falling off in both the quantity and the value of the
tea exported in 1917. This was largely due to the fact that









SUPPLEMENT TO COMMRrBE BEPQOTS,


because of embargoes neither the United Kingdom nor Australia
purchased tea from Taiwan. The customs figures, which are nees-
sarily used as a basis for this report, show a largely increased export
to Japan. Practically all of the tea sent to that country, however
was for transshipment to the United States, which as usual.bought
the bulk of the Oolong tea. Owing to the shortage of space to carry
the tea to the Unite States, the 1917 tea season promised to be a
very d(ifticult one for shippers. Rates on the regular Japanese liners
were less than one-half the rates on occasional liners, and very little:
space was being offered by the three Japanese steamship companies-
the Nippon Yusen Kaisha, the Osaka Shosen Kaisha, and the Toyo
Kisen Kaisha. Such space as was available was being given, by at
least the two first-named companies, to one Japanese tea firm, there
being no foreign tonnage at all. As the foreign firms--three Ameri-
can and three British-were unable to ship tea, purchases from
Taiwan tea growers were necessarily small, and the prices paid
were so low as to threaten the existence of the industry. Finally,
after considerable debate, in which Government officials and the for-
eign consuls took part, an agreement was drawn up whereby the
steamship companies agreed to allot space to the several firms on a
pro rata basis of their shipments in 1916. The several firms also
agreed to an equalization of the freight rate. The steamship com-
panies, moreover, were able to provide more tonnage than originally
contemplated, and what at first threatened to be a disastrous year for
most of the parties interested in the tea business finally turned out
a fairly prosperous one for all concerned.
Pouchong tea, because of increased sales to purchasing countries,
especially the Dutch East Indies, showed a gain of 1,022,880 pounds
in quantity and $219,676 in value.
Destination of Exports.
