' ' CUSTOM DUTIES . v
There is so much said about the' tariff
we lay on goods from foreign countries,
and so little about the tariff other
countries impose on things we export
that many people seem io think the
United States is the ' only nation that
maintains a "robber's tariff." This Is not
the case. Every civilized nation has a
tariff schedule. Even "free trade Eng
land" collects a tariff on twenty articles
and in 1895 collected thereon $98,000,-
000. Among the list -of commodities
that England levies a tariff on that are
produced in the United States are dried
fruits, currants, figs, prunes and raisins
and tobacco in loaf and manufactured.
Canada has custom house charges on
nearly, if not on everything we export
there. On every barrel of flour we sell
the Canadians there is a tariff charsre of
60 cents, on wheat the tariff is 12 cents
a bushel, on corn 7 cents per bushel, on
rye and oats 10 cents per bushel.
In Germany the tariff on our flour is
$2.21 per barrel and 82 'cents and
mills on each bushel of wheat, and the
new tariff act which goes into operation
March 1st 1906 the tariff on a barrel of
flour from the United States will be $3.9
and on a bushel of wheat 48 cents and 6
mills. France puts f tariff of $271 on
first class-flour. $2.31 on second class.
and $1.89 on third class. We have to
pay 36 cents and 8 mills on our wheat
before it can enter the French market
Austria-Hungary has a tariff charge
on our flour of $1.16 a barrel and 1
cents and J mills on each bushel of
Italy charges as ' tariff $2.11 ori
barrel of flour and 39 cents and 4 mills
for the privilege of offering for sale in
that country a bushel of wheat and for
corn the charge is 36 cent and 7 mills,
for rye 22 cents and 1 mill, for barley
16 cents and 8 mills and for oats
cents and 2 .mills. ' ' '
Portugal has a tariff . charge of 68
cents and 8 mills on every bushel of
wheat we export there 49 cents and 4
mills for corn,43 cents and 9 mills for
rye, 37 cents, and 3 mills for barley and
25 cents and 1 mill per bushel of oats,
The tariff charge on a barrel of flour
exported from the United States to Spain
is $1.20, and on a bushel of wheat it is
21 cents and about the same for other
grains.' . - '-" ; ." ;
Belgium charges 34 cents and 3 mills
on a barrel of flour; lets wheat rye and
barley in free an d charges 8 cents and 4
mills on a buehel of oats. : :
We pay millions of dollars every year
to the several countries we trade with
for the privilege of offering our goods- for
sale there and at the same, time try to
play even by charging them for the privi
lege of selling their ;. products """in our
country. 1";. "- -v

The principal sources of the increase
in the gold production compared with that
of 1903, are easily traceable. Colorado
added nearly $2,000,000 to. her pro
duction of 1903umost of this amount
coming from the mines of Cripple Creek
Nevada's output increased about the
same amount chiefly by reason of 'the
phenomenal yields of the Goldfleld mines
The greatest progress is reported in Cali
fornia, whose produbtion exceeds that of
1903 by $5,300,000, the increase being
caused partly by a strong development of
the quartz min'ng industry and to a less
degree by the activity, of the dredgers
Alaska :. and Arizona, show increased
yields. A number of states show smaller
increases while Utah, Montana and Wash
ington have less gold to their credit in
1904 than in 1903. '
The increase of value in the production
of silver of $2,713,378 is , somewhat
evenly distributed among ' the various
states and territories, but is to some
extent due to the better price of silver
obtained. Colorado leads with an ' in
crease of $970,320. California. Idaho,
Montana, Nevada and Utah also added
considerable value to their silver pro
duction, 'v. ' '"'.' ,
