Six companies in the gypsum industry reported to the Geclogical Survey that they imported gypsum in 1923. These were the Connecticut Adamant Plaster Co., Higginson Manufacturing Co., Newark Plaster Co., Rock Plaster Corporation, Charles W. Priddy & Co., and United States Gypsum Co. The quantity of gypsum reported by these six companies as imported was more than that reported by the Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Commerce. Of the gypsum imported, over 27,000 tons was sold crude. Of this quantity 86 per cent was sold for use in agriculture and the remainder to paint mills and for other purposes. More than 350,000 tons was sold calcined and was used principally in the manufacture of gypsum plasters. It is estimated that the value of the imported gypsum and products manufactured from it sold by these six firms in 1923 was more than $5,000,000, in comparison with a business of nearly $35,000,000 done by the entire domestic industry.

The data relating to imports and exports were compiled by .. A. Dorsey, of the United States Choological Survey, from records of the Bureau of Foreign

and Domestic Commerce.

As a large part of the Canadian output is imported into the United

a States and is a chief source of supply for the eastern seaboard States, the following table is of interest:

Returns made by the operators to the Geological Survey for 1923 indicated little change in the peat industry of the United States. Several companies dropped out of business, but new ones entered. The number of operators reporting for 1923 was 22, one less than for 1922.

The quantity of peat produced in the United States in 1923 was 61,355 short tons, valued at $376,834. This exceeded by 1 per cent the quantity produced in 1922; the value decreased 5 per cent. The quantity of peat sold for use as a fertilizer or as an ingredient of fertilizer increased less than 1 per cent over that sold in 1922, and the value decreased 5 per cent. The quantity of peat used as fuel in 1923 was negligible.

The 22 plants reporting the production of peat in 1923 were distributed as follows: California, New Jersey, and New York, 4 each; Illinois, Maine, and Michigan, 2 each; Florida, Indiana, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania, 1 each. Illinois was the largest producer, but the State total may not be published, as only two operators reported. New Jersey ranked second, with an output of 18,380 short tons, valued at $ 107,885. California ranked third, with an output of 8,133 short tons, valued at $73,799.
