THE T UK-MSG POINT
In the Iron Trade Has Not Yet Been
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
It is Important to note in this connec-

tion that large consumers of pig iron
state that they are finding as much
difficulty as ever in securing shipments
of standard grades. 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
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.

FIXING FOR WAR.
President of Nicaragua Concentrating
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
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.
