HONOLULU, H. I. snow and ill it PIG IRON BOOM Prices Now Higher Than for Years. A Story of Time When it was $80 a Ton A Good Profit on a Bigr Deal. In connection with the reports brought by Mr. Ballentyne, manager of the Rapid Transit and Land Com pany, in regard to the present high prices of iron, steel and copper, the following is of interest: (Washington Star.) "The present boom, if it may be call ed so," remarked a man who has had some experience in the business, "which characterizes the pig iron market reminds me of a few figures in the past that came under my notice. Two years ago No. 2. foundry iron was selling at $G.oO a ton. It is now worth $9.50, but even such an increase as that will scarcely compare with the prices that once obtained. I can remember when I was at an old furnace in Ken tucky, about 1S71 or '72, making a doz en tons or so a day, and not a high grade of iron at that, that the manager made us all happy one day by coming up from Louisville and informing us that he had sold a thousand tons of silver gray next to the lowest grade that could be imade at $50 a ton. That meant the snug sum of $50,000 in less than a hundred days, which was not so bad for a plant that sold for $100, 000 two years later. "But that kind of a figure wasn't worth considering compared with prices during the war. Prices went up from $12 and $13 a ton to $75 and $S0. A little story of that time will show how things went. Mr. Thomas Cleans, who was the resident iron king of that section and a millionaire, held notes against the Belfont furnace in Kentuc ky to the amount of $75,000, which meant all the furnace, was worth, and more, when the war began. The fur nace people, who were friends and re latives of their creditor, had 3,000 tons of iron waiting for a purchaser, and as it began to creep up in price they took heart, and when the market price reached $25 a ton they insisted upon Mr. Means taking the lot and cancelling their notes. But Mr. Means was not that kind of a business man, and he refused to touch the iron as a satisfac tion for his debt. "What he did was to tell the Belfont people that they were foolish to let the iron go at such fig ures and they must hold on to it and renew the notes he held. They de- f murred, but the hard-hearted million aire was firm, and they were compell ed to submit. Within a year or" eigh teen months the 3,000 tons were sold at $7o a ton, or $225,000 for the lot, and Mr Means had the laugh on the boys when he canceled the notes, "but they put the balance in their pockets and enjoyed the laugh quite as much as he did. It may be said that Mr. Means and his partner, Mr. Sinton of Cincin nati, had 10,000 or more tons at their landing on the Ohio side of the river, which averaged them a net profit of about $50 a ton. "But these good old times are forever past," sighed the speaker, "and pig iron will never be worth $50 a ton again in this land of big furnaces, turning out a dozen million of tons a year." HE NEVER HAD THEM. A story is told by the Army and Navy Journal of one of our volunteer war riors who had his home in a small town near the Mississippi river and who had been chosen to command the local company because of his political influence The ladies of his town had organized a Red Cross auxiliary socie ty, and among their contributions to the comfort of their absent heroes was a case of home-made pajamas. The box containing these was sent to camp, but no acknowledgement of its receipt was returned. So the good ladies tele graphed:1 "Anxious to know if you got the pa jamas last week." Now the Captain had been sitting up with the boys the night before and when the dispatch was handed him he was trying to reduce his swol'en head with a wet towel, and his mind was somewhat confused. So the ladies of the re'ief society were astonished by the receipt of this dispatch: "Story is a lie out of whole cloth, probably made up by my enemies to ruin me politically. Admit am not a total abstainer, but never had the pa jamas last week or at any other time." SHIPPING COAL TO SOUTH AMER ICA. The arrival of two American schoon ers with coal at Buenos Ayres is de scribed by Consul Ma'-er, at that port, as a new era for American shipping, and he adds that ii will not be long until Argentine will receive her entire coal supply from the United States.
