New York. June 14. The Iron Age In its issue today says: The turning point in the iron trade has not yet been reached, notwithstand ing the general reduction in prices made during the past week. Buyers are still to meet their present requirements and are not disposed to anticipate the future. The consensus of opinion among leaders in the trade is that harid-to-mouth buying will continue until prices ihave receded to a point which is seen to be close to the cost of production at average works. The opinion is express ed that it would be better to reach this point at once by making sharp reduc tions which would cut to the quick. Tins would accelerate the restriction of production that is necessary to bring aibout a subscantial basis for business. As long as prices show a good margin above cost at the great majority of works manufacturers will continue op erations in the hope that they may be alile to dispose of their product. Our blast furnace statement for June 1 Illustrates these conditions. Pig iron prices have been declining and the out look for some time has been discourag ing, yet the production of pig iron dur ing May actually inci-eased, as shown by the fact that furnaces in operation on June 1 represented a weekly capaci ty of 2.52o tons in excess of the capaci ty of the furnaces in operation a month previous. The stocks of pig iron ex cluding stocks held by steel works in creased during the month 93,603 tons. It is true that since the first of this month quite a number of furnaces have been blown out and others are to be blown out shortly. It is a question, however, whether the decrea.se in pro duction will be shai-p enough to cause a better condition to prevail in pig Iron. It is Important to note in this connec- FULL OF MUSIC The amount of music in a Piano does not always depend upon the price; oh, no!

They hnd a super abundance of other grades being offered them, but the standard brands have not been accumulating. This is particularly the case with southern pig iron. The higher grades of southern iron are In small supply and even No. 3 foundry is difficult to secure. An export order for 500 tons of No. 3 foundry iron could not b? filled within the past week on this account. The reports published in the daily press last week that a reduc tion of $2 had been made in the price of southern iron were untrue. The southern situation has not yet com pelled such a reduction. The demand from abroad for pig iron and steel is increasing. Good inquiries are being received and considerable business has been entered within the week for forward delivery. The important announcement is made that the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Rail road company will engage in the manu facture of steel rails at the work at Ensley, Ala., and have already booked orders for 775,000 tons for delivery next year. Their rails will be made of open hearth steel. The reports received from our various correspondents show further declines in prices on almost the entire line of iron and steel products. Rails and structural iron shapes continue to be the excep tions. A meeting of the manufacturers of structural shapes will be held in this city cn Thursday, and it is rumored that action will be taken to place prices of shapes on a basis to correspond with rates now ruling on other steel pro ducts. Consumers of lake ores are asking the mining companies to defer shipments until August, which will possibly throw a big lake movement toward the close of the season. ME. BLAKESLEY LEAVES.

President of Nicaragua Concentrating Troops. Correspondence of Associated Press. Managua, Nicaragua, May au. iresi- I dent Zeiaya, of Nicaragua, is again con centrating a large numDer or troops, many cannon and a big quantity of mil itary supplies in the departments of Chinandega and Leon, along the Pacific coast, as if in anticipation of a war with Salvador, which might commence about the middle of June or early in July. The president and his cabinet have about completed arrangements to enable them to leave this city in a few days and re side for about one month in Chinandega and Leon, the governmental depart ments accompanying them. But, this fact, it is argued, is no reason why 2,000 or more soldiers should be concentrated in those civil departments. Many refugees have lately arrived in this country from Salvador and the in flux continues. It is hinted that proba bly it is intended to organize a body of Salvadoreans, procure rifles and cannon from Nicaragua and in conjunction with Nicaraguan soldiers, make an ef fort to overthrow the government of Salvador. Such a war would involve Nicaragua, Salvador and most likely Guatemala and Costa Rica. It is suggested that President Zeiaya is getting ready to resist a possible at tack from Salvador, but the influx of so many immigrants into Nicaragua from Salvador leads to the belief of a con templated attack on the latter govern ment. The coffee just gathered crop of 1893 in Nicaragua is being moved from the plantations to the sea coast with much greater rapidity than in former years. This celerity is taken to indicate a de sire to leave the laborers free to be im pressed into the army. ONE PLACE ENOUGH. Rev. Dr. Swallow Cannot Accept Pro hibition Presidential Nomination.
