Philai>u.phia, Ta, April 91—The
buaim-ss world is still to med upnid* down
so to Apeak over the unexpected effects pro
dnced by the new railroad law. Mervhaut* j
ami manufacturer* are nnablo to do all the
bonne«« that in offfrad them. Variou in
dustries are varioudy affected. Rates have
been advanced in many plaee* fpn two to
seven times former prices. Order will
shortly rum« out of all this conf 11»ion. Tb«
busiue*« an of the country are waiting
for the commissioners to virtually set aside
the law. The Commissioners are over
whelmed w ith qnentimis, apjietvls and com
plaints.
Business itself apart from unsetllrd
freight rates is in cxcrll«-ut shape. What
is not shipped thin wcvk will be shipped '
next. Prices bold their own in nearly all
industries. Production in the iron trade
is greater than ever. The output of pig
iron has increased eleven thousand tons
per week since January First. The An
thracite cool combination has been reuewed
The lnrnber freight rates are lower. The
shipmeuts of lumber from the Northwest
and from tieorgia have run away ahead of
last year.
Bayers everywhere are looking forward
to heavy buyiug before the opening of Sum
mer. The mills and factories ol the coun
try are with very few exceptions ruuning
full time. The iron ami steel works are
everywhere ruuning night ami day. The 1
carriage and wagon works and iron manu
facturers have had a rush of business du
ring the past week. |
wool. IS LOW IX PRICK
ami cotton has idvannd. ["ricw of nearly
all kinds of cotton goods are firm. During
the past month over 1:{s,(hx»,imm) yards ot
cotton goods have been exporte«!. The
manufacturers of clothing are very busy in
all cities except Philadelphia. In St. I^onis
manufacturers of stoves and furnaces are
having a hard time of it. In Oiuana the
lumber dealers are growling at big lumber
rales. At Savannah trade has been greatly
eulivened. At New Orleaus all distribu
tive lines have been brisk and prices for
stable articles show in advance.
Throughout the West railroad building
is Iteiug crowded ahead. The new railroad
law may stop a good deal of projected work
and if so, this would affect trade in general.
It is probable, however, that this year will
not be allowed to pass without the com
pletion of all projected work, which calls
for not less than eleven thousand miles.
The manufacturers of dry goods, knit
goo*Is, hosiery and carpeting are still able
to run tull time and the probabilities now
are tharo»vices will improve in cottou
gooods of all*kinds from prints up.
THE ADVANCE IV REAl. ESTATE
throughout the country Is one of the un
expected turus in eveuts. The activity in
buildiug operations throughout the conn
try unie*» it is checked by sums cause not
visible will be twenty-five per cent over
last year's building. Manufacturers of
material are luoded up with orders. The
preliabilities are that present ({notations
for all the stable products will fluctuate
vwy little. *The supply of gold, silver and
paper has hecu steadily increasing, and this
is one of the strongest guarantees of steady
prices, strong industrial activity, and in
creasing conlideuce.
The Knights of L*bor are losing mem
bership about as lltst as they gaine«), and
the eil'ort is now being made to divert the
attention of tb* organization to more im
port int subjects than that of strikes. The
question of political action lias been de
cided. The question of co-operatiou re
maius a debatable one.
TIIE CXTKN9ION
of the railway system t'.ls seasou will
create permanent employment l'or a largr
number ot skilled mechauics in supplying
railway materials and appliances. New
manufacturing centres will spriug up iu
the West for this purpose. Railroad man
agers have inquiries now out for machinery
and motive power to be erected in Missouri,
Coloiado and in the far Northwestern
States. Their obje«-t is to be more indepen
dent of sources <>t supply east of the Mis
sissippi. A good many skilled mechanics
from eastern shops have been invite«! to
positions in the West. The western car
shops are also being enlarg»sl, and within
the past two or three weeks heavy cou tract s
have been plaee«l for hard woo«! supplies.
An nnusually large number,of Knglish
mechanics have arranged to emigrate this
year, and expect to fiu«l employment iu the
machine shops an«! lactones of New Eng- ,
land ami the Middle States. There is no 1
particular ludiiceiueut tor them to come
outside of the general probability for Had
ing employment. American machiniste ]
have lor years lx-en complaining that, with !
all tbe trades-uuions of Knglish mechanics,
when they come her they are anxious to
work lor what they cau get.
THE Sl'PRKMK IIM'RT
of Connecticut timilly renderel its decision
in the printers' I toy cot I in;; co.se which at- <
tractcd a good deal ot* notice .sonic time I
ago. The Court says: "The hare assertion
oi such a right is. .startling. The two
alleged rights—the Tight to employ »ml
the right to boycott—cannot possibly co
ex 1st. One or the other must yield. Il
the defendants had th»> right which they !
claim, then all business enterprises are :
alike subject to their direction.'' <
Country towns near large cities are likely
to be helped by the onttlow of industrial i
establishments on account of high rents
and taxes. Manufacturers who started a
few years ago in suiall towns are doing re
markably well, and in many ways under
selling their city competitors. Km ploy es <
speak frequently of other disadvantages
beside», au«l a movement will probably set
in to the well situated tow as within fifty
mile» of commercial centres.
New Kugland trade journals are making
a good many complainte over the exacting
deinauds successfully made by organized
labor. In many papers the tone assume*
a whining cbaractor, as thongh the writer 1
felt there was no cscape from the thumb
screw of organized labor. Many articles
are written to show that the present de- i
m.iuds are calculated to destroy business
ami iiyure the prospects of lahor lor future
employments. i

An associate press dispatch announces
♦hat the K. of L. molders at Detroit, Mich.,

The initiatory steps have been taken for

The ontpnt of the locomotive works of
the country now averages from thirty-six
to forty engines per week. The output of
the textile mills ol the country, especially
in New Kngland, will be largely iucreased
liming the summer.
The machinists in Chicago, St. Lonis,
Kansas City, as well as in some of the
smaller manufacturing towu of tbe V»*est,
lind the rate wBges improving without tbe
pressure of strikes. There is a demand for
a higher class of skilled labor in mechani

At last a sensible etTort has been made

Idle lalwr is becoming more aud more

A press dispatch states that a series of
experiments are now being made at tbe
works of the Bethlehem Iron Co. to test a
system fur producing pnddle bars from
iron which has l*-en put through thepnen
matfe process. The patenta consist mainly
in the application which is made of the
melted iron, tbe furnace used being the
old "Danks mechanical pnddler." Tbe
melted iron is poured into the puddler,
which is a huge cylindrical-shaped vessel,
set in such a manner that it revolves.
Heat from a Btuhhlehein furnace is forced
into the puddler, and as the iron gradually
becomes granulated it takes the shape of
the vessel. After being pnddled it iscom
pressed id to shape under a Winslow
squeezer, and iustead of being run through
pnddle rolls it is reheated and at once
rolled into liar or other iron. The experi
ments, so far as made, are said to demon
strate the practicability of the machine, it
only reinaing to he seen whether the qual
ity of the iron prodnced is snch as will
warrant the putting up of plants for its
production."
