An English View of the Progress of
In an elaborate discussion of the
pig-iron problem the London Statist
"The great pressure forste«d plates,
and strucMirnl ironandsteel generally,
is tbe main cause of thegrea* pressure
on iron smelters, and the scarcity of
pig-iron is tbe cause of the short sup
ply of finished material. It is becom
ing more and more obvious t'> i he trade
geneially that it the present demand
for iron and steel is sustaimd —with-
out even being increased—the question
we asked a year ago. 'Will there be a
pig-iron famine ?' will be answered in
the affirmative within six months.
There ie, of course, the possibility of
the demand subsiding—and tli re is
for the moment, at any rate, a distinct
pause in the booking of new vessels,
and in some other trades in which
iron is coniutned—bat there. Is little
hope of relief from America within that
period When we wrote a year ago
American pig-iron was coming over
freely to us, and was being shipped to
the Continent, and the output for 1898
was expected to reach 12,000,000 tons.
As a matter of fact the output was
only 11,774,000 tons, and was so much
less than the consumption that the
stocks were reduced to 291,000 tons, as
compared with 656,000 tons at tbe end
of 1897. Aud now, even though the
production has been increased since
January 1, the export has practically
stopped, or rather, we should say that
tbe sales for export have practically
stopped, for it is true that in the two
months ending February 28 we im
ported from tbe United States 28,149
tons of pig iron, as against 16.335 tons
in the correspond log two mouths of
1897. But tbtse shipments were in
completion of sales made some time
ago, before the prospective scarcity of
America was being felt. The Ameri
can consumption in 1898 is now seen to
have been about 12,250,000 tons, which
is to say nearly half a million tons
more than the production. l!y so much,
therefore, must the output of 1899 ex
ceed that of 1898, without absorbing
every ton of stock, even if the con
sumption does not increase. But tbe
consumption has increased and is in
creating, so that even if tbe output
should reach this year 14,000,000 tons,
which is predicted, there will be little
or any margin for export. Whatever
margin there is will be in tbe second
half, not the first half, of the year; so
that the critical period will be within
tbe next six months."
Tbe Statist concedes that under ex
isting conditions hardly any material
increase in tbe English output of pig
iron can be possible within the next
few months, and adds:
"Whilst the American supply will be
probably wanting this year, and, there
fore, our imports of pigs will be a good
deal smaller than last year, the exports
will be greater, because the Continent
will have to come to us to make up
some of the falling off in tbe Ameri
can supply. Our exports have already
begun to increase, and were 61,553 tons
in February, as compared with 55,553
tons in February, 1898. If, then, home
consumption and exports reached 8,
--■ tons in 1898, the total this year
nlikely to be 10,000,000 tons. If
means the absorption of every
ton of stock in the country, and more
also. In other words —famine.
"Of course, there remains the ques
tion of increasing the output, and no
doubt more furnaces can be blown in.
But many more will not be blown in
unless pig iron rises to famine prices,
because most of them are of such an
tique type that they cannot be worked
at a profit on anytning like present
range or prices. There are 503 reputed
furnaces in the kingdom, of which 380
were in blast during 1898. It is ex
tremely doubtful how many of the re
maining 213 are fit to use again at all;
it is probable that the majority of them
could not be worked at a profit unless
pig iron rose another pound per ton or
so; it is certain that very few more can
be blown in, whatever the price, until
fuller supplies of iron ore are assured.
We do not forget that some new fur
naces, perhaps a dozen in all, are being
built of modern type. It does not fol
low, however, that these will be put
into blast in addition to those already
blowing, but rather that they will take
the place of others getting worn out.
And as regards the supply of ore for
any additional furnaces there may be
available, there is the ominous state
ment from the TJjited States that the
increased output of pig-iron there will
necessitate the importing of ores this
year—doubtless from Spain and Cana
da. Het the production of iron ore in
j the United States has increased sixfold
within twenty years, and is now about
24,000,000 tons. The prospect is in
deed serious if the supply of American
ore is now insufficient for the needs o'
. American smelters, for though ther..
are enormous reserve supplies of ore
on the American continent, the valne
of the deposits depends on their pro
ximity to coal.
"From the national point of view, it,
is not agreeable to find that whilst
| twenty years ago we produced 50 per'
cent, of the world's pig-iron, we now
i furnish less than 25 per cent. America
has taken the lead since 1890, and will
easily keep it."
In this connection should be read the
following from the London Iron and
Coal Trades Review:
"Less than six months ago it appear
ed to be probable that we were likely
to be inundated with impcrts of foi
eign iron and steel, and especially from
the United States. This prospect was
generally regarded as not far short of a
calamity. Today the tables are turned,
and it rooks as if we were in danger of
being unable to secuie supplies of
iron and steel from foreign sources to
supplement what may be lacking in our
own. Both Cermany and tbe United
States have as much to do as they ap
pear to be able to accomplish in sup
plying their own wants. It is, there
fore, possible that the trade of this
country may be seriously hamnered for
lack of mateiial which we are uunU-j
to provide at home. This considera
tion brings us face to face with, the
question whether competition in our
own markets is a boom or otherwise.
It is certain that if the general indus
try of the country is to be handicap
ped for Kck of the material of con
struction at a reasonably l.iw price, it
will be a matter of seriou-" concern.
The home works are not able to for
| nlsh at present adequate suppiies of
i either pig iron or certain descriptions
of steel. It is equally certain tbat we
cannot to any large extent depend on
from abroad at prc.seii f prices.
The situation thus btconi-s greatly
changed, and possibly changed for II c
worse. Better that an Dt-ca»louaj or
der should pass info the !i»n * of
American or German manufacturers
than that the general mechanic.il in
dustry of the country should suffer
from the want of the most fundamental
of all industrial requirements—tha of
sufficient supplies of material at a rea
sonably low price.
"For many months past, both Con
tinental and American manufacturers
have bad their bands more full than
usual, and have bsen greatly strained
to meet the wants of their customers.
Within the last two or three weeks the
long anticipated boom has taken place
in the iron trade of the United States,
and prices have been rising by leaps
and bounds. It is generally expected
that this movement will become more
accentuated as the summer approach
es, and that there is little probability
of drawing further supplies of iron and
steel from the United States for the
current year, except in fulfilment of
orders alreaJy contracted for. Today
the general range of prices in the Uni
ted States is as high as, and in some
cases higher than, those quoted for
corresponding quali'.its in Great Bri-:
tain. Up to the present time this con
dition of affairs has not led to any ma- j
terial appreciation of prices at home,!
but a further rise is more than proba-1
ble, and both manufacturers and con- 1
aumers wili no doubt make their fu-.
ture arrangements in accordance with
the new outlook."
