The undersigned having been
duly appointed by His Excellency
G. B. Haddon Smith, Governor of
the Colony, is conducted almost
wholly with the United States,
which nation is treated in regard
to tariff duties on exactly the same
terms as the United Kingdom, Ca-
nada and the British West Indian
Colonies. The only tariff duties
levied are those necessary for the
general upkeep of the Colony.
At present the Bahama Islands
Government subsidizes two Ame-
rican steamship lines touching at
Nassau, New Providence, the cap-
ital and principal port. Conces-
sions have been granted by the
Government to American compa-
nies and American capital invested
in the industries of the Bahama Is-
lands aggregates $3,000,000, to
$4,000,000.
The Bahama Islands buys from
the United States articles aggre-
gating in value more than $1,104,-
000 annually. This foreign trade of
the United States with the Baha-
ma Islands is gradually increasing
yearly. American exporters sup-
ply about seven-eighths of the to
tal import trade of the Colony.
In return the United States buys
from the Bahama Islands products
aggregating in value about $500,-
