Periods Chosen for Analysis Are

Itule, and Under Democrats
Before and During War.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 31. The slight
extent to which the European war has
Influenced the importation of foreign
Roods into the American market will
be a surprise to that school of political
thought which has believed that war
conditions abroad have built a Chinese
wall of tariff protection around this
country, according to a statement Is
sued today by the Republican' Publicity
Association through Its president,
Jonathan Bourne, Jr.
A comparative study of market sta
tistics for similar periods before and
during the war shows not only that the
decrease in Imports is small, considered
either as a total or by percentages, it
is declared, but that in many of the
more important items which make up
the sum total of our importations
there has been a large and positive in
crease even while the war has been
Comparisons Are Made.
These conclusions are demonstrable
from an examination of Government
statistics which has been made by the
staff of the Republican Publicity As
sociation, which says:
"The most recent figures made pub
lic by the Department of Commerce re
garding exports and imports cover the
month of August, 1915. Although the
European war broke out the first of
August. 1914, the British blockade of
Germany and Austria was not fully
effective during that month. Notwith
standing the fact that the blockade
was complete, so far as Germany and
Austria were concerned, in August,
1915, the total value of imports for the
latter month was J12.000.000 greater
than in August, 1914. - Other nations,
under the favorable tariff rates and
free lists of the Democratic tariff law,
have been able to invade our markets
to that extent.
'That the change in tariff facilitated
importations is shown by the fact that
i.io average rate or duty for August
1913, under Republican law, was 22 8
per cent, while in August, 1914. under
Democratic law. it was only 15 pel
cent, and in August, 1915, sank as low
ii.i per cent, this latter figure it

The statistics just made available
are particularly useful for comparative
purposes for the reason that the eipht
months period ended August. 113
was entirely under Republican law; A
corresponding period ended Aust,
1914, was entirely under a Democratic
law, and entirely free from the I in
fluence of the European war. A sim
ilar period in 1915 was also under a
Democratic tariff law, but influenced
by the war in Europe. Total importa
tions for these three periods were as

Those figures show the increased
Importations of foreign goods to dis
place commodities made or produced
in America, and also the protective ef
fect of the European war during the
eight months' period in 1915, with
which comparison is made.
"Turning from these totals and giv
ing attention to particular classes of
commodities the analysis shows, for
example, the following importations of

"I know of no reason whatever why
