The gain of the southern states during the past three years ’-as been 228,301 tons ol which A'abama furnitbed Ynore than a tourtn. Industrial operators says that last year's production In this state would nave boon much larger but for the real miners’ strike last summer and i K drop m iron prices in August, which claused ti t furnace operators to deliberately curtail the production of iron 25 per rent.
