We have no change to record in the
condition of the iron ore market, with
the exception that there has U-en less
business transacted and fewer inquiries;
but in the face of these facts no unhealthy
symptoms are apparent, and sellers are
firm in their idiasof prices with no nj
parvnt disposition to make concessions
in order to effect sales. Shipments to
turnaces show a considerable increase,
over hist week, however, which is ex
plained by the fact that the settlement of
the late strike on the N. Y., I & O. rail
road has enabled that corporation to
resume its carrying trade. The ore now
on docks will U nearly all denned up
Utwct n now and the opening of naviga
tion, which is existed to Ih; nUmt May
20, and new ore will 1m somewhat later
than last season in reaching port ; and
as the largest amount of ore which ever
reached here? isexiectcd during the coming
season, lake vessels will have their hands
full, and plethoric wallets will swell the
pockets of lucky vessel owners at the
existing rabfc. The American IronA Sbrl
Association is directing its attention to
the heavy importations of iron ore which
are admitted Utnuso of undervaluation,
ami the association claims that these
continued heavy importations of iron,
sb-el and iron ore would not exist if they
were honestly invoiced. It has already
resulted in a decrease! demand for the
home product, and is a subject which
should, ami probably will, I e call.nl to the
attention of Secretary Fairchild inn way
that will result in thorough investigation
and expurgation. We quote :

"You will not find U'ttoroie than that
on the Marquette or Gogebic Ranges"
said Superintendent Swain to a Diamond
Dhii.L representative, as ho broke a
U'autiful piece ot blue ore on the stock
pile, at the Rlaney mine, on Hection 27,
RUTJ, one day this week. It has Urn
deemed advisable not to lower the main
shaft U-yond its present depth 120 feet
at present, but drifting and eros-cut-ting
will Is? carrhil n vigoroiihly. Drifts
are now Uing driven along each wall
with cross-cuts at intervals. Tho main
shaft is located on the east end ot the
proH-rty, but just as soon as the true
course of the vein is determined to a
certainty, a working shaft will U coin-j
rnencod at a point about 1100 feet to the
west and drifts driven east to connect
with those from the present workings.
A trestle has Urn constructed and
two tram can will soon Unplaced thereon
when the on will U. carefully sorted ami
placed in stock pile. Kvery analysis of
this ore HtriiiH to improve; it U-comes
higher in metallic iron and lowerin phor

on. The projMTty is U ing t lea nil of

buildings pn sents a taking apiearance.
There is not much doubt now of this
projH'ity getting a spur track this year.

(The present working consists of one
hhatt which is sixty.flve feet deep and

shaft Imu liorn allowed to fill with water,
but it is learned that a Uiler and pump
will le put in and the mine cleared at

sold for a largo sum to a Negaum-esyndi-1
cate. ot which Cant. George Mitchell is at

! The Range has it on good authority'
! that, "they have struck aline vein ot ore
' at the Rlaney mine." They have had a
lino vein ot Ressemer ore there for a long
time, which iscontinunlly WingdevcloiH-d
