With reference to the notice on p. 606 of the " Board of Trade
Journal " of 26th September and previous notices, respecting the
crisis in the Sicilian sulphur industry, H.M. Consul at Palermo
(Mr. S. J. A, Churchill, M.V.O.) now reports that the Mineral
Credit Bank has been established with a capital^of 2,000,000 lire
provided by the Government. If this amount is already absorbed
in advances, it will have to be deposited with the Credit Bank as
the advances are repaid. In addition to this the Mineral Credit
Bank is to call on the Bank of Sicily for 2,000,000 lire.

Regarding commercial operations, Mr. Churchill says that the
sales hitherto have not been proceeding freely owing to American
competition. Negotiations with the American producers being
unsuccessful, the Sicilian Association determined to fight the
Americans in the United States, and with this end in view a first
cargo of 3,000 tons was sent over, it being understood that more
was to follow. The Union Sulphur Company* retaliated by
moving the American authorities to apply the Sherman Act against
Trusts in the case of the exportation to America of Sicilian sulphur
claiming that the trust in Sicilian sulphur was directed against
American enterprise. The Bureau of Corporations has, however,
according to the ** Ora," decided that this Act cannot apply, but
that Article 73 1 of the Law of August, 1904, may be invoked,

Mr. Churchill also reports that the draft of the Statutes of the
Consorzio has not yet received the approval of the Government,
nor have the regulations of the Mineral Credit Bank been
sanctioned. A copy of the Statutes of this bank, together with
two price lists for sulphur issued by the Consorzio Obligatorio,
forwarded by the Consul, may be seen at the Commercial
Intelligence Branch of the Board of Trade, 73, Basinghall
Street, E.G.

* An article on the Sulphur Mines of Louisiana, which are controlled by the
Union Sulphur Company, appeared on pp. 316^ of last weck*8 issue of the " Board
of Trade Journal.'*

t This refers to the raising of prices, whilst the Sicilian combination is desirous
of selling below rates established by the Union Sulphur Company.

Shipping and Transport,

BRAZIL.

H.M. Consul at Santos (Mr. R. Casement, C.M.6.) reports that the
Development of shipping entering that port is largely increasing
Shiiroi^e Trade ^ increase would appear to be general

tSa tn although British and German vessels have a

* ^ ' considerable lead. The port is now the easiest

of access in Brazil, and the quay accommodation second, in all
South America, only to Buenos Ayres. With the early comple-
tion of the quays, a length of close upon 2^ miles of quay wall,
served by railways and with warehouses in touch, with deep water
alongside will shortly be open for vessels. Everything points to a
considerable development of Santos trade in the near future, and
the absence of sufficient or suitable warehouses for the storage of
coffee is being met by the erection of large warehouses.

ARGENTINA.

H.M. Consul at Buenos Ayres (Mr. A. C. Ross) reports that a monthly

jr Op • service of fast steamers has been arranged
