XEW YORK, May 24. — Within the next thirty days the production of pig iron will, it is stated by leading deal ers here, be greatly curtailed at the furnaces in all parts of the United States. The proposed reduction, which is not by united action, is va riously estimated at 20 to 40 per cent of the present output. The furnaces to be most quickly affected are those which have been in operation the longest, as the new furnaces have more modern machinery and equip ment and can turn out iron at a lower cost than their older competitors. The production of pig iron during 1903 was 19,000,000 tons. Experts assert that unless there is great im provement in the near future the to tal for the current year will not ex ceed 14,000,000 tons. ; Unless Conditions Change Quickly the Ontput Will Be Greatly Curtailed.

Y., May 24.— The work of the Presbyterian General Conven tion consisted of a consideration of home missions, the report of the stand ing committee being presented by Rev. John F. Carson of Brooklyn, chair man of the committee. The report dwelt upon the desirability of the Pres byterian church pursuing a more sys tematic course in the matter of funds for home missions and advocated a union of efforts among the churches to that end. The necessity of extend ing home mission work was empha sized with particular reference to strengthening the work among the Mormons. As part of the report Dr. Carson stated that "we heartily com mend the work of the Christian wo men of all denominations in carrying on so successful a campaign against the iniquity of Mormonism.'' The afternoon session was devoted to the report of the standing commit tee on aid for colleges and a discus sion of the subject of college educa tion. A special meeting was held to consider the effect of the war in the Far East upon Christian missionary work. A matter of general interest to mem bers of the Presbyterian church Is the conclusion reached by the committee appointed by the last General Assem bly of the Presbyterians of the United States to raise 512,000,000 with which to endow colleges, especially the weak er ones in the West. The report rec ommends the union of the board of aid for colleges and the endowment com mittee under the name of "College Board," and the removal of the head quarters of the board from Chicago to New York. Results of the Efforts Among the Mormons Are Com mended by the Body WOMEN AEE PEAISED There is ¦ still a possibility that one or two changes may be made in this or^ der, but it 1 is said that the caucus ob- J. C. Watson, Prime Minister and Treasurer; C. C. Kingston. Minister of External Affairs ; E L. Batchelor, Minister for Home Affairs; H B. Hlgglns, Attorney General; W. M. Hughes, Minister for Defense; H. Mahon, Min ister for Customs: Senator Dawson, Postmas ter General; Senator McGregor, Vice President of the Executive Council; A. Fisher, Minister without a portfolio. Mr. Deakin advised that Mr. Watson, the leader of the Labor party In Parlia ment, be entrusted with the task of forming a new Ministry. The next day at noon, at the request of Lord North cote, Mr. Watson, after advising with the" leaders of his party, called on his Excellency and after some exchange of views received his commission to form a new administration. Mr. Watson in an interview the next evening said that everything was go- Ing on as well as he hoped. It is gathered from several sources that -the probable composition of the Ministry will be as follows: On the morning followfng the division the last meeting of the old government was held. It was understood that Mr. Deakin was authorized to tender the resignations of his colleagues as well as his own to the Governor General. Di rectly after the meeting was concluded he waited on Lord Northcote and hand ed to his Excellency the resignations of himself and his colleagues. They were provisionally accepted, ¦ with the request that the Ministers would con tinue in office until their successors were appointed, which request was ac ceded to. The Government is responsible for the arbi tration bill, which has been the fruitful parent of the intolerable labor demands, and we now know from Sir John Forrest exactly why the Government brought it in, and what those who voted to keeo the Government in power were supporting. The fact that the situation is such a tangled one only goes to offer fur ther proof, If that were necessary, of the de moralization reigning In Federal politics as the result of this alliance between the Federal Government and the Labor party. The bebt way to break down that alliance or anything resembling it in the future is to rank the moderate and State Socialist sections of the House in fair opposition to each other, ami this Is one of the .possible results of a crisis like the present. The process has been more rapid than was expected when Mr. Fisher moved his amendment. It was anticipated then that the debate on the general proposition it enunciated regarding civil servants and the arbitration bill would be merely prefatory to the debate and division on the amendment threatened by Mr. Watson. But the tone of the debate set aside that assumption. Rapidly, as political events have a way of changing, the nature of the proceedings underwent .1 transformation, and on Wednesday night it be came apparent that, whatever the motive o. the causes, the amendment first moved in the bill was to be the decisive one. And so it In* proved. The Government's defeat was a foregone con clusion from the first, and whether It was ar rived at on Mr. Fisher's or on Mr. "Watson's amendment may only be material in respect of the course followed by Lord Xorthcote In replacing his late advisers. The attitude of Ministers and the whole drift of the debate led up to the defeat of the, Government by 38 votes to 2J>. which is about the proportion foreseen, allowing for the non-participation in the debate of eight members, including the Speaker. The break-up of the Cabinet-cum- Labor compact was the real defeat of. the Government, and the division merely carried it into effect. But one result of last night's division is to bring to' an end after an exist ence of about three years the historic Min istry which, under its two leaders, had the double distinction of conducting the business of the first Federal Parliament and of disap pointing the legitimate expectations of Fed eralists. It closes a chapter In our common wealth's history which must be always mem orable, but which Is unhappily disfigured by a manifest disregard of its high constitutional responsibility by our first Federal Ministry. RESIGNATIONS NUMEROUS. LABOR DEMANDS. The result of the division In the House of Representatives last night upon Mr. Fisher's amendment for including ptate servants in the purview of the Federal arbitration act was the defeat of the Deakin government. As members realized l>uer how close the division was likely to be it seems to have bfen accepted as an occasion when disguises might be laid aside and the conventions of politics disregarded. Hitherto there has been a certain affectation of innocence of the fact that the business proper to this Parliament was delayed, or that there was any under standing among certain members by virtue of which a majority was secured to the <Jo\> ernment on certain condition!", or that Min isters were pandering to the Labor part^, or that the arbitration act In particular was anything oth<>r than a necessary and desired corollary of federation. These were prevailing pretences hitherto and members fell In with them with all the artless guilelessness of the companions of Alice in Wonderland. But the determined attitude of the Labor party over its airendmenU Introduced a touch of reality which quite spoiled the idyllic play. Sir John Forrest was one of those who were most suc cessful in responding to the appeal to throw off the mack of illusion and his contribution to the debate was not only instructive as well as amusing in itself, but a very striking con firmation of all that the critics of the Mln isterlal-cum-Labor alliance have been Baying for months past. The Minister for Home Affairs assured us frankly and plainly, to takt one example, that Ministers put the alteration and navigation bills in the fore front of the work of the session — "to assist the party that had assiated us." And this la the very thing that It Is the main business of the opposition In the Federal Parliament to protest against and oppose to the utmost. It was not necessary, as some of the speakers last night seemed to think, to vote to bring civil servants under the bill. All It had to do in its leaderlpss condition in the present crisis was to let the Ministerialists and the Labor jisxty settle their quarrel over the spoils 'be tween themselves. \ The New Zealand political situation, which had been very threatening ever since the assembling of the Federal Parliament on March 2, became more acute on the reassembling on April 13 after the Easter recess and reached the crisis on April 21, when the Gov ernment was defeated on an amend ment to the Federal arbitration act by a vote of 38 to 29. The Sydney Her ald, commenting editorially on the matter, said: POLITICAL. NEWS. The Government and the civic authorities would have failed in- the discharge \>f their duty had they allowed Mr. Dowie the further use of public buildings after his gratuitous and gross insult of the sovereign. • • • Mr. Dowie' s attack on the King consisted not so much In what he said as in the manner in which he alluded to the subject and the impression which he sought to convey that he was jn possession of facts. Practically the speaker was guilty of sedition in his effort to hold up the sovereign to ridicule and con tempt, and if he made no profession of sanc tity whatever, but was simply content to be accounted a mere Mat ant stump orator actu ated by a base motive, or a cheap Jack who hid to «ay something outrageous in order to attract a crowd which should contain some Billy victims for his confidence tricks, the of fense would then be serious. When Christ comes back be will abolish all other governments. King Edward will have to take a back seat very low down. I don't want to say a single disrespectful word, but nobody can boast of King Edward's piety. No body Imagines that he has any religion to spare. You only hope that he has enough to get into heaven when he dies, and that will apparently be by the skin of his teeth. He has never been renowned for his religion. (A voice — "Leave the King alone.") It is of no use you howling about that. I don't care If he Is the King. I am standing In the place where John the Baptist spoke, and If I get any mora talk back I shall say more about King Edward and not less. You cannot make me shut up with that kind of talk. I am the servant of God. John the Baptist did not care for King Herod, and if you stir me up 1 don't care. You hold your tongue. The authorities at once, refused "Elijah" further use of the Town Hall, "where he had been holding meetings. The Adelaide Register, commenting on the Incident in an eaitorial, entitled "The Rejected Prophet," said: Late news . from Australia shows John A. Dowie ran into a hornet's nest in Sydney, Melbourne and other Aus tralian cities. At Adelaide in particu lar he excited public indignation on April 25 by impugning the piety of King Edward. His words In part were as follows: The success achieved ¦ in the wine industry along the Hunter River, N. S. W., is encouraging others to em bark therein and it is expected that in time the country will be an ex porter of good wines. The butter sea son has been a long and rich one and a large surplus will be exported to London, though for some reasons prices there are not entirely satisfac tory to the producers. The" season so far does not prevent the broadly fa vorable aspect for wheat which, was so striking at this time In 1903. Some districts have had too much rain. Commenting on the situation as above developed the Sydney Herald of April 25 said: The Goverrtor General's commission to Mr. Watson to form a ministry gives us a new point of departure in Federal politics. It Is one which Is of the first Importance, and at a Juncture like the present should ."In no wise .be misconstrued or misunderstood, either by ourselves or by cur critics, and more particu larly by rur tinancial critics abroad. If we were to take by Itself the fact that a labor ministry is In process of formation to control our Federal affairs the event would be tme of special significance in commonwealth politics. But that fact does not stand alone. It is a detail .In the general political situation, and if the friends of liberal-conservatism as op posed to experimental state socialism, and advised, .there is no reason why It should be other than a temporary one. It marks a stage which has to be passed if our Federal politics arc to evolve from the low condition to which the tactics of the first Federal Minis try reduced them to something: higher and better. The plain Issue before the country Just now Is whether we are to have responsibility in the management of our Federal affairs, or whether the Government is to be carried on by nominal Ministers obeying? the dictates of the Labor party. The new Premier, Mr. Watson, is but 37 years of age, but his friends accord him full ability to carry, out the work before him. One of the first matters to which Mr. Watson will give attention after the organization of the new \ Minis try will be the Federal capital ques tion. The commission has inspected a number of the 'sites proposed and so far Bombala and Delegate have the lead over the others. (The Governor-designate of Victoria, Sir Reginald Talbot, was to arrive by the R. M. S. Ramora on the 25th of April and will be received with much demonstration. tained from Mr. Watson a statement to the effect that he thought the allo cation of offices given above would be about the best that could be devised. It has also been stated that the new Ministers may ask for a month's ad journment, instead of three weeks. EDITORIAJj OPINIONS.
