pecially emphasized when ex-Attorney
General W. IJ. Hensel, attorney for
Congressman H. Iiurd Cassell. the con
tractor, said that if there was no doubt
as to the adoption of the agreement

STEEL PRICES CUT
Manufacturers Agree Upon a Genera
Reduction.
New York. June 1<J.?Announceni?-t
was made by Judge Elbert H. Gary
chairman of the I'nited States
Corporation, that a general redi:
in the prices of finished steel pr<
had been agreed upon by repr??
Uves of the large steel Interests aft? I
an all day conference. The red
affects qi! bars, plates, stru.
turai iron, merchant pipe and wirr
nails.
The statement was as follows:
"Th? ntatives of the lea?lir.g
manufacturing companies bav?
been in session during the day. It i
understood that the price of iron or
has been or will soon be reduced t
ut s per ton base.
"Each one of the steel manufactu?
ers expressed the opinion that thar
should be a readjustment in th?? prices
of their r?eapactlva coaaaaodltlaa, as
follows: Billets, from ? ? ?? to
t bars, from $29 per ton ;
a, from $1 70 par 100 poun ?
to $1.60 per loo pounds; BH rch r.
pipe, a reduction of two points, or $'
per ton; wire nails, from $2.or? p
pounds to| 100 pounds.
"She?*t and plate- i<?>d early
in the year; therefore no cha
considered in the prices of these pro?
ducts.
"It Is hoped these changes will aoi
necessitate a general or radical
justment of wages, which it is desirous
to avoid."
