He is only a lineman, the people say, As tbey pass by or give him the way; Por his tools, with their rustle and bang, Strike many ears with unpleasant clang'. His dress is untidy, his face does not tan, But note, he walks like a man; Not ashamed of his friends nor afraid of hi9 foes When to work in the morning he goes. Not dreaming the dangerof the death each hour His trust and hope iin the "unseen power" Gives strength to his arms, light to his eves; He fears not to live, fears not to die. A scene on the street a few days ago. With "only a lineman" in death laid low; His "pals" stood by, tears falling fast, Not a word was spoken till he breathed his last. They said of their com ade, lying dead at their feet, He was onlv a lineman, never tidy or neat; But his heart was as big as the world, they said We'll defend his good name now that he's dead.

THE METAL MARKET. Geo. L. Walker in his weekly cop per letter this week says: Copper continues very dull with prices unchanged Lake is 13 cents and electrolytic 12 3-4 cents a pound. Hales ot small lots of the latter at 12 5-Si cents have been reported re cently. A break iu metal prices at present is practic.illy impossible. Pro ducers have sold all their surplus ac cumulation they desire to, and many ot them have disposed of their out put as far ahead as the end of Jan uary. There is no one to offer prices down, aud it is practically certain that consumers will come into the mai ket and buy heavily within the next week or two. The world's copper surplus, now aggregating over 300,000,000 pounds, is believed to be made up of about 150,000.000 pounds held by sp. cula tors, chiefly foreign; 60,000,000 pounds iu various lots held speculatively by small producers, metal dealers, brok ers and individuals, and the remain ing 100,000,000 pounds represents the copper which accumulates in smel ters in the Lake Superior district aud refineries elsewhere, on docks and at other shipping points, awaiting bo.its or cars. 1 his last 100,000.000 pounds of the world's surplus will never dis appear. It is the amount which un avoidably accumulates at one point and another in the process of turn over; for 1,300.000,000 pounds of cop per, the present annual production, cannot all be kept iu constant mo tion until it reaches the consumers. One thing that is unfortunate about the statist! s as now published is that they con o exclusively from the producers. If the consumers were also furnishing their figures, the whole situation would appear in a much more cheerful light. The pro ducing interests report "deliveries," and it Is easy for the pessimistically inclined to assume that a portion of this copper goes into warehouses, where it is bidden away to create a fictitious statistical situation. As a matter of fact actual consumption this year has considerably exceeded the deliveries of the producers, for it has absorbed in addition the ten mil lions of pounds of copper which has found its way to market from various sources. Tt has been figured out by some statisticians that the decrease iu the world's surplus has been jiist about onset Dy the curtailmeut in produc- tion during the last half of the year ! If this ;ii true, it must be conceded I that cousuinpiion has at least equaled I the total producing capacity of the j world's mines. Consumption this year I i has showu an increase of at least 8 per cent over that of 1909. if it shows ! an equal increase next year, it will call for 144.000. 000 pounds additional copper, or sullicieut to absorb the en tire output of the new mines, which will become producers, and also ap proximately one-third of the world's existing surplus I personally be lieve the increase in consumption will be sufficiently large in 1911 to reduce the world's accumulation by half.
