Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: I Paints and co ors. Rai way supplies. Oils. Engines. ' Wall papers. Weighing machinery.. Sporting goods. An analysis of the customs importations shows that since the preferential tarifi' went into effect Great Britain has had the advantage of the United States as to increase in the following articles: Manufactures of wool. Cotton. Linen. Flax. Leather. Glass. Carpets. Curtains. Cordage. Jeans. Confectionery. Gunpowder. Earthenware. In the followin manufactured products the preference has not advantaged Great ritain: Silks. Gloves. Mitts. Perfumery. Brass and copper goods. Electrical apparatus. Optical, mathematical, photographic, and I Clocks. musical instruments. Paints. Varnishes. Colors. MINING MACHINERY. Attention already has been directed to the fact that ractically all the installation of the new Canadian industries, iron an steel plants, smelters. lumber and flour mills, is done by the United States. No preferential tariff can be devised which can deprive the United States of its market for mining machinery. A probability is that if the Canadian mills are unable to fill their orders for steel rails at any given time the preferential tariff will aid in the import of British rails. The surtax injured the Canadian market for German steel rails. Outside of this class it is doubtful whether the United States has anything to fear from British competition in iron and steel except in crucible steel, edged tools, etc. The com etition between Shefiield and Pittsburg in these articles always wi 1 be keen. It is to be noted. however, that in saw teeth the Canadian mills insist on having the articles from the United States, and also saws. Philadelphia and St. Louis saws liave not been displaced either by Great Britain or more
