PrrrancnoH Jan 10A great contest be

and the railroad managers has boon going on
for several months and there Is no sign of a set
tlement Two years uco the steel rail manu
facturers organized the Dossamor Steel Asso
ciation controlllnc the eleven steel rail mills
of tho country and agreed to restrict produc
tion and socuro better prices than existing
rates 27 per ton Tho movement was a very
quiet ono but it effected thu desired result
quickly Tho restriction in manufacturing
caused an active market and tho railroads bo
Ian to compote with each other for rails
Prices exceeded all expectations running up
to UO per ton Tho railroad people had ben
caught and they woro bled profusely
Last hummer however a number of tho rail
road Presidents concluded to play the same
kind ot n came and turned tho tables on tho
millionaire steel rail manufacturer They
agreed not to purchase any rolls for 1888 deliv
ery nor make any improvements or extensions
until the price was reduced to S30 nor ton I
Hteel rails have not como down to this figure
Tho manufacturers hale concluded to try their
own endurance and coo I they aro not com
po ° ed of UK good staying qualities as the rails
they manufacture They have in turn on ono
pretext or another some to make repairs Ao
closed down until today all the steel rail
mills of the country are idle Tho manufac
turers still demand from 33 to 35 per ton for
tholr rails and tho railroad men say Keep
your rnlA rates lit these figures We dont want tho
The result of this shutdown Is of course a
big reduction in tho demand for coke and for
th Ill < tune in a year perhaps tho Connells
