THE IRON BUSINESS
For 1892 Eclipses All Previous Bec
ords in All Ilespects.
SALES, PEICES AND COMPARISONS.
A Ferlea of TaWea Which Will Interest
Manufacturers and Merchants.
THE COATj OUTrlJTFOR TWELTE TEAES
Pittsbubo, Dec. 30.
The year of 1892 will hereafter be known
as the year of strikes, of war between
labor and capital, resulting in loss of life
and millions of dollars. Notwithstanding
these drawbacks the sales of raw iron in
Pittsburg amounted to 1,990,590 tons, being
only 188,914 tons below that of 1891, which
was a year without strikes. Had not the
biisunderstandings ocenrred at Homestead,
Beayer Falls and Twenty-ninth and Thirty
third streets, tbey would undoubtedly have
been largely in excess of any previous year.
Below will be lound the sales for each
week, in a concise form, the first and second
six months of the year being divided. The
tables are made np from our own weekly
reports of transactions. Apart from this we
have reported 6,752,000 tons of iron ore
against 4,525,000 tons for 1891, being in
favor of the present year 1,227,000 tons.
Cold figures, as a rule, are not very inter
esting reading for the general public, but
hereabouts the comparative statements 'of
the iron and steel trade of Pittsburg and
vicinity this year's compared with former
years will without doubt prove an excep
tion to this rule. .
One important feature during the past
year was the big strides soft steel made in
taking the place of iron. Steel at the pres
ent time, in many instances, is being sold
cheaper than iron. Here is one illustra
tion: Skelp iron, wide-grooved, being
L57Jc, lour months, and steel skelp, wide
grooved, L50c, four months a difference in
tavor of steel of 7Jc per 100 pounds.
In regard to the lnture of prices there is a
wide diSerence ot opinion. Prices for all
kinds of iron and steel are down to, a very
low figure. A recovery, with an improving
tendency, is expected to come toward the
end of January, and from that time on
trade is expected to be satisfactory. No
great advance of prices is likely to occur,
however; the fact is, many discreet pro
ducers, who are in the habit of estimating
effects and results before they give counten
ance to ventures, object to any advance of
Bessemer pig metal that will carry the
price higher than 514 7515 00. They
argue that these, prices will pay reasonable
profits, and that anything beyond legiti
mate returns promotes a competition that
very quickly demoralizes conditions and
brings about depression. Following are
the statistics referred to above:

Shipments for 1893 Fall Considerably Be
low 1890 and 1891.
The navigation of the Ohio riyer ii very
uncertain. Take the present year, for ex
ample. There were no shipments by
water during August, September, October
and November. This, however, is something
unusual. Hence the year's shipment is one
ofthe lowest for years, and falls below last
year 13,307,000 bushels and below the year
of 1890, 28,712,000 bushels.
The Monongahela Valley miners haye
been on a strike since the first of July.
The result is that, notwithstanding the tact
that no coal was shipped the last fonr
months, there is only about 5,500,000 to 6,000,
000 bushels loaded. At the same time the
pools are crowded with empty barges and
boats waltlmr to be loaded, the dlfTorence
between the operators and miners being
one-half cent per bushel. The railroad men
pay 3 cents per bushel for mlnlnz.
The river operators are willing to pay
that, but no more. The say they have to
compete with parties who pay half a cent
less than they do and will not do so any
longer. Many men, who ought to know
whereof they speak, say that the day Is not
far distant when coal mining will be done
by machinery- The matter will soon be
tested; one of the large coal operators is
putting in machinery In one ofthe large pits
In the fourth pool. Of course, if thi j proves
a success, the whole system of mining will
undergo a change ana there will be an end
The lower markets are reputed fairly sup
plied with coal, notwithstanding the limited
amount that has left Pittsburg during the
year. Following were the shipments (bush
els) to Cincinnati and Louisville for the past
Tear. Clncln'atl Louisville Total.

The history of oil business for 1893 will'
be remarkable only for low prices and this"'
development of the Sistersville pool. T
The McDonald field is already a part of
the history of the oil country. Its best
days are over, its glory departed, but the
memory ot its wonderful wells will never
be forgotten. Before they were brought id,
there was not a man in the business who
would have believed that within 18 miles
of Pittsburg oil wells wonld be found which .
for days would produce over 10,000 barrels
There are now few, very few, who
imagine that such another pool, ii any
exists, will ever be struck; although a well
informed geologist, who bas engaged in ths
oil producing business, stated, a lew dayi
ago, that there is liable to be immense
quantities of petroleum stored away in the
60 miles below us which is supposed to
represent the earth's crust. And it is not
at all improbable that with the improve
ment in oil well machinery and drilling
tools which is constantly being made,
it will be possible to drill twice or
three times the depth which they axe able
to no now. Many more apparently impos
sible things have succeeded.
Since July, 1891, the territory around tho
boroughs of McDonald and Oakdale, and the
village or Noblcstown, embracing a resion
six miles long, and from a mile to two miles
wide, has produced nearly 11,000,000 barrels
of crude oil from about 800 wells.
This is a wonderful output for so short a
time, but a year ago there were hundreds of
men interested In that field who believed
that Its production would be much larger
than It has since proven to be.
Dnrlng the past year scores of wells have
been put down which demonstrated beyond
question that McDonald was tho most
spotted pool ever opened.
More Money Lost Than Made
It Is for thla reason that every man wjio
hag been engaged in it la convinced, but
facts and figures are impossiblo to obtain,
that there has been a third more money lost
in this field than bas been taken out. Three
or four large firms and half a dozen indi
viduals hit it rich, and wisely refrained
from too much drilling: but it is safe to say
that not one man in every 25, who was In
terested in wells in McDunald, got back as
mnch money as he put in.
There was scarcely one of the town lot
wells that was not divided up Into sixteenths
or thirty-seconds; and people were beard
to boast of being oil prodncers at that time
who only held a slxty-roarth in a small well.
The prices charged for these shares were
ridiculous In the light of later developments.
Two thousand dollars was frequently paid
for an eighth In a well located on a lot so
small that the boiler would have to be
placed on the lease of some other company.
Because there were a few big gnshers
struck in the field every man who held a
lease, or could claim a stick of timber In a
riir, believed that be was destined to strike
a phenomenal well.
It was not always the tenderfeet who were
roped In or dropped their cash. Some of tho
oldest heads in business suffered. This was
notably the case on the western horizon,
when the Fife well, and afterward a good
ono on the Walker, were struck.
Old Timers Pooled by the Ftfe.
Some old timers pounced onto the farms
in that region and a dozen wells -were soon
drilling. Scarcely one of them will pay for
Daring the fall of 1891 only the body of the
McDonald field was opened, -while In 1S92 all
ofthe spurs and extensions of the main
branch have been brought to light. This
was notably tho cose in the territory north
of Oakdale where the Wettengell veils
made over 100 barrels an hoar lor several.
Then the GoTdon sand territory south of v
Wilson Grove was opened up by tho well on
the Meise farm, ana a paying pool was de
veloped. It Is now supposed to bo pretty
Later the big wells on the Scott farms, lo
cated aDout two and a half miles southwest
of McDonald came in at nearly 100 barrels
an hour. They wore five sunders andshowed
conclusively that they were on an extension
of the McDonald belt. Numerous test wells
bad previously been put down In that re
glon, and although Knox Bros. & Co.'s So. 1
Scott was a light five sander, none had been
able before to strike the rich heart of the
pooh It is only now In Its infancy, and
the half a dozen wells which are
goinz down around the Woodland Oil Com
pany's and Enox Bros. & Ca's wells on the
Scott ought to define the extent of it. How
far it may extend to the southwest Is merely
a matter of conjecture. Although there
have been some well3 put down ahead they
cannot be taken as thorough tests.
If ear Midway and Venice.
There is still some work being done around
Midway, but the sand is of such an uncer
tain character and the probable production
so variable that no wells will be put down,
unless It is necessary to hold a lease, until a
better price is paid for oil. It is Gordon
Venice is still attracting some little atten
tion, but not nearly so much as it did a few
months aio. The operators In this locality,
which is about five miles due sonth of Mc
Donald, have several chances for getting
back the money which tbey put into a well.
They are liable to get oil in the Gordon, gas
In tue 00-foot, oil In the fourth sand and
either oil or gas in the fifth sand. 'one of
the oil wells so far developed have produced
over 100 barrels a day, but some of the
gassers have been good ones.
Coming Dack to the vicinity of Koblestown
and Oakdale a few little spurs are found
which have excited considerable Interest.
The first of these is the fifth sand pool sonth
or koblestown, which was opened up by
Brown Bros., and the Sobison well on the
It made from 33 to 33 barrels an hour for
some-time, and led to considerable drilling
around It. Greenlee & Jforst secured tho
bulk of the good property, and drilled about
fifteen wells in the locality.
A well which promised to open up a nice
pool was the Forest Oil Company's Ko. 3 on
the Gregg farm east of Oakdale. It made
over 30 barrels an hour, and on the strengtn
ot it half a. dozen wells were almost Imme
diately put down by various parties, and the
owners will be extremely lucky If any of
tbe wells pay forthemselves. Further mill
ing has about been abandoned in the neigh
borhood. Later Fifth, Sand Developements.

the Forest Oil Company on the Sterling
property, apd Jennings Bros, on the SprouL
Both wells Vere fifth sanders and camo in

Frank Fertig recently completed a400
harrel well half a mile south of Oakdale,
and there is now considerable aotlvlty In
that direction There is no territory to drill
in the heart of the McDonald field, as all
that Is worth anything has been developed,
but on the edges and in tbe southwest there
Is yet plenty of room for work.
There la another part of this field which
has recently come Into prominence. Al
though known as the McCurdy it U nothing
but an extension of the big wells which
were found near MoDonald. McCurdy was
developed first by John U. Patterson and
was followed by McDonald. Within a few
weeks the Forest Oil Company drilled an old
well, No. 6 D. K. Clever, into the fifth sand,
and it started to flow 60 barrels an hour. It
is northeast of the McDonald wells, and east
of the old McCurdy district. A couple of
wells have been put down n ortheast ot it,
but tbey failed to get anything In tbe fifth
sand, and now it is believed the streak runs
east and west, or to the southwest. This
well has led to a good deal of drilling, and
tbe extent of the pool is yet a mystery.
In the Fourth Sand District.
Almost immediately northeast of the old
McCurdy field, and only three miles from
Chartiers, some good fourth sand wells were
struck within the last four weeks, on the Mc
Coy and Swing farms. There was a good
well on the Devlne, owned by the Forest Oil
Company, which had been drilled In some
