WASHINGTON, Aug. 27.—The state* department has received from ' Consulai Agent Harris, at Eibenstock, ,a report shiiwing'.' the extent of - Germany's grain importation from, Russia and from the United States. In 1897 \Russia sold Ger- many §27,302,410 worth more of grain than did the United StateB, but i n 1900 the United States waB\only ,$4,947,250 worth behind her European rival.
