Labor - Saving Machinery in Iron Making Gives labor More Taj FOR MUCH LESS YFOBK, "WHILE -Yielding Larger Eetnrns to Capital on Narrower Profit Harjin. A MILL MAKES 50 MILES OF BAIL A WEEK Old Tubal Cain was a man of might In the days when earth was young: Br the fierce red light of his furnace bright, The strokes of his hammer rung; And he lilted high his brawny hand On the iron glowing clear. Till the sparks rushed out in scarlet showers, As he fashioned the sword ana spear. And he sang, "Hurrah for my handiwork! Hurrah for the spear and the sword! Hurrah for the hand that shall wield them well, For he shall be king and lordP But old Tubal's laureate, though 'writing about an industry thousands of years old, neither knew nor could know what any man of eyes, ears and common apprehension can learn in a week's tour of Pittsburg's iron works. It is true there may be some like the man to whom The primrose on the river's brink, A yellow primrose was to him. And it was nothing more. But they are not observant. Some 45 years ago we burned a man in effigy who sneered at the "Birmingham of America." We were proud of our iron works then, but the most ardent dreamer could not conceive the slightest idea of their possible growth since then; nor, indeed, since 1860. EfFANCr OF IRON. The fact is not generally appreciated that the most important and perfect system ever devised for the setlement of troubles be tween labor and capital in this the most important indu-try in the world, except agriculture the slfding-scale was devised in this city by the organization known as the Sons of Vulcan; but such is the case, and from an old-time and intelligent iron worker, who was a member of it, some inter esting facts were learned concerning the ad vancement of the iron business in this sec tion in the last 35 years. He modestly re fused to allow his came to be given. The story sounded more like romance than sober fact, but the evidences of its truth are scat tered all the way from the sources of the Conemaugh to the water shed that sep arates the Lake Erie basin from the valley of the Ohio. A few comparisons will show growth. In '1858 Jones & Laughlins'Jworks were considered justly entitled to the distinction of the "American Iron "Works." Their puddling capacity then was 20 furnaces. They have 90 now and have recentlv had more than that in operation, and the finish ing mills of the company have increased in capacity, much more than the puddling de partment At that time the ground now covered by the immense Bepublic Iron "Works, near .Tones & Laughlins', was an open field. Subsequently the "Wharton Bros.' rolling mill was built, the perm of the Republic works. In loot, Lewi6,Uliver & Phillips started in a small way with four puddling furnaces. Now they have 91 and the increase in the puddling department is but one-third of that in the finishing de partments. WAGES HIGHER PRICES LOWER. Bight here another interesting feature presents itself, and 'that is the ability of manufacturers to pay larger wages than they did when finished iron sold for about twice what it does now. At this point the doctrinaire will come in and tell you it is owing to wise legislation, but in this he is only partially right. It is owing to man's ingenuity in the line of invention, and when we are tempted to fall into a line of muring, like the Psalmist, and exclaim in view, not of the works of God 'ere man attempted to transform them, but of the stupendous ma chinery, which islargely the mifThsprinj of activity in the modern world, "Lord, what is man that Thou art mindful of him, or the son of man that Thou reeardest him?" It is well to pay some tribute to man's brain also, for it is brain, and not altogether cap ital, that has effected the transformation. By means of tireless machinery, which only charges interest wages when it is unem ployed, one man does much more work than he did 30 years ago, and what he does is much MOKE EASILY DONE. Instead of the puddler and a lot of assist ants laboriously tugging at a buggv to haul his ball to the muck rolls, it is lifted out of the furnace and sent spinning along, hung to an overhead railway, and one man finds the transportation but play. In the finish ing departments the improvement is much more marked than in the puddling depart ment. From 1858 to I860 the price paid for pud dling was 53 504 per ton, and even as low in some instances as $3 25 per ton. against $5 50 nowY It is true that house rent and board were cheaper then than now, but many other necessaries of life were dearer, as owing to more crude methods of production and difficult transport ation, their cost was enhanced as was that of finished iron. The higher prices noted for puddling ante bellum were paid in store goods, the lower in cash, a yery common distinction before the war, when the country merchant replied to in terrogatories regarding prices of goods by asking another question: "Cash or trade?" In 1858 bar iron sold at 23 cents, and now it can be had lor 1 7-10 cents in small, and for 1 3-5 cents in 100-ton lots. THE EXPLANATION Of the ability to sell cheaper and pay more for cost of production is simple. It has been shown in many other kinds of business than in iron making, but unfortunately its demonstration is death to enterprises of Email capitalists, and has done much to destroy selfjfeliance, f for how many me chanics can expect to save enough money to go into business for themselves, when at least 550,000 would be nec essary to make a start, or how many farm laborers at S20 a month and board and wash ing can hope to save the ?10,000 necessary to enable them to compete with the farmer -who plows 10,000 acres and does 95 per cent of his work by aid of machinery? It is so in almost every field, commercial, manufactur ing or farming. The man whose capital is his skill or his muscle in the absence of ad ventitious aids must be content with the hope of acquiring enough to keep him out of the poor house in his age, unless he haste to become rich, in which event Holy "Writ sayshecannot be innocent. Some'evolu tionists, however, are satisfied with the situation, holding that it merely marks a phase in development, "Whatever is, is xifihfc" SOME ASTOUN DING FACTS. In 1867 Lewis, Oliver & Phillips' daily output of muck bar was 10 tons, now it is 228 tons at so much less relative cost that one-quarter ofa cent is now a much larger profit than one-half cent would have been then. Increased production through the aid of improved machinery has accomplished it. In 1860 the entire output of all the iron mills in Pittsburg was not equal to three of the largest now, and the merchant who sells 51,000,000 worth of goods a year at a net urofitof4Terernt clears more money than the man who sells $50,000 worth at a net profit of 60 per cent, but organization and large capital are necessary to accomplish it. In addition to larger pay for production, skilled mechanics do less work to accomplish it than they did 30 years ago, and especially since natuial ras has been used for fuel. Previous to 1870 the puddler on the night turn was compelled to work three to five hours in melting ore to make fix for his fur nace. Since then invention has relieved him of that labor. At first "crushers" came to his aid, and then "grinders," so that now he is furnished with a pasty mass with which he levels his furnace. Pnddlers, however, say that the pig iron they are now given is harder to work than that formerly supplied them. Now the great aim .of blast furnace proprietors is to get as great results as possible, and in consequence the- carbon in pic is in the graphitic form and very high in silicon. Under the cold blast pro cess carbon, as a rule, in lorge iron was in a combined form and the silicon in it was low, making it easier to convert into wrought iron, ana ine cnange is mostly due to the modern manner of running furnaces for all that is in them trettinp the most iron tkjs- sible out of the ore. In the olden time mill- tap cinder was not used for dm. limestone being used exclusively. The hot blast ex tracts almost everything possible irom we ore. BAIL -WONDERS. But great as has been the increase in out put in iron making generally in 30 odd years, it is" dwarfed in comparison with that of railwav rail making. The Brady's Bend rail mill was the first erected west of the Allegheny Mountains, and Colonel "W. D. Slack, superintendent of the Homeopathic Hospital, could doubtless tell much of in terest concerning it. It had the field all to itself until the Cambria Iron "Works at Johnstown were established in the '50s. At the Brady's Bend mill an output of 200 tons of rails a week was considered some thing worth boasting of. Now the Edgar Thomson, from Sunday evening at 6 o'clock until Saturday following at 4 o'clock P. M., shoves out a rail a minute. Averaging heavv and light sections at 60 pounds, this is an'output of 600 pounds a minute, 18 tons an hour, 2,556 tons in two hours less than a week, and enough rail to lay some 24 miles of track. Notwithstanding the immense saving in human labor, there is no falling off in the amount of labor employed, but on the con trary it has increased in a greater ratio. THE GRAND RESULTS. The milfman talked with said: "Thy-ty years ago I knew every man I worked with in a mill; now I do not know by name one third of the men in the mill 'where Lam employed. Labor has not only not been hurt by machinery, but has received benefit from it." This has been general experience. The descendants of the English laborers who burned the ricks and barns of farmers, who employed threshing machines and other labor-saving machinery, are to-day getting 50 per cent more wages than did their an cestral incendiaries when nearly everything was done by hand. Not many years after the whisky rebellion in this State the peo ple west of the Chestnut Ridge prophesied ruin on the completion of the Pennsylvania canal. They said there would be no sale for cither horses or grain and sighed even for the return of the time when salt and iron were packed on the backs of mules and thus transported from Philadelphia to Pitts burg. The result, however, was that good horses, instead of selling at 550 to 575 apiece, brought 5100 to 5150, and oats rose to 25 cents a bushel, whereas they had ruled at 10 to 12J cents previously. The price of almost everything advanced in proportion, and vet people, as soon as the transition period was past, were able to buy more at the advanced than they had been at pre vious prices. It might be pertinent to add tiat one of the steamers of Gray's Iron Line can trans port at one load the enormous output of the Edgar Thomson Hill for nine days.
