In reporting on this year's bean crop in the plains of Catania,
HAS. Cr f ^^' Churchill states that the crop was rather
^OitaBlS. Bcaixie and inferior in quality to that of 1906.

No stock worthy of consideration was left on
hand from last year's crop, and prices have ruled firm. The 1908
crop is expected to be plentiful, as plantations are far more exten-
sive this year.

UNITED KINGDOM.

According to a report in the " Board of Trade Labour Gazette *' for
Q* + # fii December,* based on 6,492 statistical returns,

T iT V t^ ^i2., 2,697 returns from trade unions and 3,795
iMour MwrJcet ^^^^^^ f^^^ employers (i-elating to 1,122,339
®'' workpeople employed in coal and iron mining,
the cotton, woollen, worsted and other textile trades, the building
trades, the boot and shoe and other clothing trades, and the paper
and glass trades), besides a large number of returns of a non-
statistical character received from employers' associations, trade
unions, local correspondents and other sources, employment in
November showed on the whole some decline, both as compared
with the previous month and with a year ago. In coal mining
and in the textile trades generally employment remained good,
and there was a seasonal improvement in the printing and book-
binding trades. In the building and shipbuilding industries it
was bad.

As compared with a year ago there was an improvement in
employment in coal mining, and in most of the textile and clothing
trades, and a decline in the metal, engineering, building, and
furnishing and woodworking trades.

In the 272 trade unions, with a net membership of 639,678,
making returns, 32,010, or 5*0 per cent., were reported as un-
employed at the end of November, 1907, as compared with 47 per
cent, at the end of October, 1907, and 4*5 per cent, at the end of
November, 1906.

The number of bales of cotton imported into the United Eangdom

during the week ended the 12th December, 1 907,

Cotton Statistics, was 1 14,093, and the number imported during

the fifty weeks ended the 12th December was

4,426,331 (including 6,069 bales British West Indian and 10,645

bales British West African). As regards exports, the figures are,

for the week ended the 12th December, 4,158 bales, and for the

fifty weeks, 471,108 bales.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA-NORTHERN TERRITORY.

According to the Report for 1906 of the Government Resident of
P 1 h 11 Northern Territory of South Australia, the

Tt^ ^ year's take of pearlshell amounted to 57 tons,

ana rrepang ^^j^^ ^^ 7,833i., as against 115 tons, valued at
inauBtry. 14,352^., for 1905. The number of boate

licensed during the year was 45, of which only 17 were engaged in
fishing. The Report of the Harbourmaster shows this industry to
be in anything but a satisfactory condition, owing chiefly, it is
said, to the low prices for shell and the diflBculty of obtaining first-
class divers.

The export of trepang reached 84 tons, to the value of 6,056/.,
as against 62 tons, valued at 2,929{., for 1905.

PORTUGAL.

The Board of Trade have received, through the Foreign Office, a
- - translation of the Portuguese decree of 21st

ew nraa October last, regulating the carrying on of the

business of insurance in Portugal. This trans-
lation may be seen at the Commercial Intelligence Branch of the
Board of Trade, 73, Basinghall Street, London, E.C.

ITALY-

A despatch has been received at the Foreign Oflice, from H.M.

•Eu 1 t r^ * Embassy at Rome reporting that a crisis has
Financial Crisis . n • i . • ^ m • • n •

_. . ansen m all industries at Turin — especially in

* * that of automobiles — and consequently also in

the money market. Many companies, after their rapid formation
in 1905 and 1906 with inadequate capital, have been obliged to
ask for further share subscription, which they have obtained with
difiiculty, and ready money has become scarce. The crisis has
caused a large reduction of orders and consequently many work-
men havo been dismissed. Several companies are in liquidation.
H.M. Vice-Con sul at Turin considers that the present would be
a good moment for any British manufacturers desiring to establish
an industry in Italy to profit by the special chance of obtaining at
a very low price several factories with all the latest^fittings.

JAPAN.

H.M. Embassy at Tokio reports that 14 Chinese employed in a

shipbuilding yard near Kobe have been ordered

ChiBese Labour, back to China under an Imperial Ordinance.

An appeal has been made to Tokio against this

order, the cont-ention being that these Chinese do not fall under

this Ordinance as they cannot property be considered labourers,

being in fact skilled workmen earning three shillings a day.
