1902 Excerpt: ...countries. Saltpetre still forms a considerable
export, though not so great as Quantity Of Principal Articles Of
Private Merchandise Exported (and Re-exported) To Foreign
Countries, formerly. Coir and cocoanut oils and other products of
the cocoanut palm are increasingly exported from Madras. Tobacco
exports are unprogressive. Teak exports have fluctuated widely,
owing to forest restrictions and Siamese competition, and to
variations in the demands for shipbuilding and railways. Spices are
less prominent than formerly in Indian trade; but pepper and ginger
are still of some importance. The export of lac and lac goods is an
old trade, and business has recently shown a revival. Among exports
exhibiting recent progress are rice-bran and oil-cake for
cattle-food, petroleum, paraffin wax, coal, mica, manganese ore,
bristles and fibres, provisions, and paper-making materials.
Re-exports of Merchandise---Re-exports by sea form only about-five
per cent, of the total imports into India. The items are many and
various, but by far the most important are European Value Of
