Copper "is dull at prices which are practically unchanged although there has been some offering down by deal ers which has been widely heralded as showing a tendency towards lower prices on the whole. Producers are not anxious to sell and buyers cer tainly are in no hurry until their ac tual requirements must ; be met ' and they are gambling that copper will be lower then than it is now, basing their chances on the large reported surplus both here and abroad.

Mercur mine of Utah; with "he exception that the Panaca ore con J-I . 1 A X 1 tains higher values almost twice as , Much. Consolidated Mercur ore aver- ages around $4 a ton; whereas, the . ranaca product cut's close to $7.51 a ton. Upon the dump, it is estimated, there are piled and awaiting treat- ment by cyanidation, 1500 tons of ore far off by many. , ; ' V; ; ; lead. ' The lead "market here is dull,, and firm but at St. Louis the demand is readily Increasing 'and stocks are be ing slowly decreased. Manufacturers furnish a good demand and specula tors are taking an interest. The lead ore market is well review ed by the following special wire from Joplin to a leading New York metal pub'Uation: "The continued apathy of the lead ore market is getting on the serves of the mine operators of the district and another week has passed with no apparent demand for ores except at sacrifice prices.
