Oct, 10, 1907.] THE BOABD OF TRADE J0I7ENAL. 61

Openings for British Trade,

CHlViPir-contimed.

The Japanese are very keen competitors in this branch of business ;
they make up their medicines in small doses so as to be within
the purchasing capacity of the poorest, and each little packet or
bottle is carefully labelled with the name of the medicine and the
cures it will effect.

Sir A. Hosie also reports that the import of clothing, including
hats, &c., in 1906 was valued at 205,350i. as

ClotliiBg, Boots, ftc. compared with 165,2372. in 1905. There was
a slight increase in indiarubber boots and shoes

(624,969 to 637,287 pairs) and a corresponding increase in value ;

while leather and other materials for boots and shoes rose in value

from 31,366Z. to 40,1702.

There is also a good demand for foreign ribbons, the imports of
flnv oykI r^^^^n which in 1906 were valued at 200,0052.,
eSJom ^^ compared with 97,2041. in 1905 (gold

values).

H.M. Consul-General at Yunnan-fu (Mr. W. H. Wilkinson), in a
report on the trade of Mengtzu for 1906, states
Household Stores, that although the greater part of the house-
hold stores imported there is for the use of
Europeans, yet an increasing amount is coming into consumption
among the Chinese. At Yunnan-fu in October, 1906, a shop was
opened (it is understood as an informal agency of a French firm)
for the sale of the usual miscellaneous contents of a general store.

Handbills printed in Chinese were distributed inviting attention
to the stock of groceries, wines, saddlery, cigars and cigarettes,
enamelled ware, perfumery, soap, photographic materials, combs,
brushes, bedgear, socks, clocks and watches, glassware, locks,
stationery, ribbons, silks and piece-goods. A speciality was to be
made of surveying instruments and road-making tools, of chemicals
and of kerosene. It is said that the firm which provided the stock
gave the Chinese manager a free hand in fixing prices over and
above a certain minimum, and that in consequence the goods are too
costly to command a ready sale. The prospectus of this establish-
ment, as translated above, serves to show what kinds of goods are
considered likely to be saleable in Yunnan. The " surveying
instruments" were intended to meet an expected demand in
connexion with the scheme for an all-Chinese railway from
Tunnan-fu into Ssuch'uan, a scheme at that time much discussed.
