WASHINGTON, Juns 15.

Considered I without qualifying circumstances, the PUIS All Our Former Efforts Eclipsed WASHINGTON, Jnne IS. The United State leads the world In the exportation of typewriter, in the single month af April, its exports under that head exceeded one million dollars In value as compared with 1131,231 to April. 1897, while for the complete fiscal year which ends with Jun ine total will be about tl3.0C0.00O, or I time'-, as much as In 1837. the earliest year (or which a sepa-rata record of this trad was made by the Bureau of Statistics. The growth In exports of typewriting machines has bees steadily maintained during- the IS years covered by the official record.

In 1897 the total exportation was 11.413,117; in 1902. 33.303,191; In 1907, H.374.439; and In 1913. as previously stated, will approximate From these figures it will be observed that this class of exports doubles In every five years. For the entire period frfra 1897 to 1911 the aggregate exportation of typewriters of domes tin manufacture has been t8I.S94.S3S. This rapid development In exports of typewriters Is typical of many other Intricately constructed and delicately adjusted machines of American manufacture.

Of cash registers, for example, the exports Increased from $818,098 In 1900, the earliest available, year, to approximately In the current 'fiscal year; scales snd balances, from $381,888 in 1897 to 11.000.000; electrical appliances. Including telegraph and telephone instruments, from $3,631,759 In 1901, ths first year In which a separata record was kept up, to sewing machines, from $3,340,241 in 1897 to printing presses, from In 1897 to and machinery of all kinds, from $29,442,884 in 189T to approximately $111,000,000 In 1911. These figures do not Include automobiles, of which the year's exports will amount to about mow ere and reapers, which will approximate and threshirs, which will approximate 000,000. MANY GROWING MARKETS. Most of ths typewriters exported from the United States are sent to Europe, Where business and industry havs long been In a state of high development.

In certain of the newer communities, however, such aa Canada, Argentina, and Australia, this class of manufactures finds a large and growing market. Basing ths figures for twelve months tipon the ten months' figures already compiled by the Bureau of Statistics of ths Department of Commerce and Labor, the exports of American typewriters to the United Kingdom will be between and to about to Oermany, approximately to Russia In Europe, about and to all other Europe, a little over $2,000,000. Nearly $1,000,000 worth will go to Canada, about $500,000 erth to Argentina, $300,000 worth to Mexico and Brazil, $400,000 worth Australia and other British Oceania. $300,000 Jrenh to the British East Indies. $100,000 worth to Cuba, and about $500,000 wort to various countries located In every part of ths civilized world.

The. extent to which American typewriters are finding favor even In -the great manufacturing centers of Europe as well as In less advanced parts of ths world may bs Inferred from the growth in exports by sountrles In Che period of 1897-1913 covered by the official flg-', ures. Taking the ten months ending with April, 1897, and comparing the exports during that period with those of the corresponding months of ths current year, those to ths United Kingdom increased from to thoss to France, from $80,221 to and thoss to Oermany, from $201,869 to while those to all other Europe Increased from (142,691 to In the same period our exports of typewriters to Canada Increased from less than $27,000 to thoss to Mexico, from $20,000 to those to Argentina, from $10,950 to those to Braxil from $3,557 to and those to the British East Indies, from (6,498 to $167,240.

Again, tt is pointed out, the showing of the United States is brought down by reason of the fact that the country" has a largs population of foreign-born whites Ss well as of colored persons', among whom the percentage of Illiteracy Is 12.8 per cent and 80.5 per cent respectively. Ths Illiteracy among the native whites of this country is only 8 per cent Density of population has an Important bearing on tha problems incident to bringing the children together for purposes of education, and therefore Is an Important consideration when discussing Illiteracy statistics. In this connection the document tssued by the Bureau of Education shows that the number of Inhabitants per square mils In the Ger man Empire Is more than 810, In Great Britain practically 463V and In this country Just a shade overt 80. France, with a population of 183.5 persons to the squars has 11.4 pr cent of illiterates in its population oVer ten years of ags. It should bs noted, however, according to the Bureau of Education's report, that this Includes a largs number of person who never had the benefit of oompulaory education laws, which were enacted in 1882.
