.the repair shop and foundry at Copper Cliff. The
report states that the energetic efforts which had
been made in the Introduction of Monel metal be
can to bear fruit In the last year, and the indica
tion*, are that the production of this metal from
the t*reighton »ores will be an Important factor In
th* company's future operations and earnings.
The American Sheet Steel Company, a subsidiary
of the I'nited States Steel Corporation, has taken
up this metal vigorously, and after the most se
vere and careful tests the Pennsylvania has adopt
ed it for the roof of Its large terminal buildings In
New York, and it ha« also been successfully used
for propellers and many other purposes. The tot.
nage is yet small, but is constantly and rapidly
increasing.

early in the week, but since then the weather has been
unseasonably cold and vines making no headway.
Warm weather is badly needed, and unless it sets In
soon a very J>mull crop will lie harvested. Washington
yards are also In bad shape, and rain is needed In
California. The contract market has been more active.

at 10c. but it is hard to do anything at that figure
now. In New York State ill yards are still held back
by cold weather, but are otherwise In (nod condition.
On the local market there has been quite a little in
quiry, but sales of small volume owing *• scarcity of
