A MILL MAKES 50 MILES OF BAIL A WEEK
Old Tubal Cain was a man of might
In the days when earth was young:
Br the fierce red light of his furnace bright,
The strokes of his hammer rung;
And he lilted high his brawny hand
On the iron glowing clear.
Till the sparks rushed out in scarlet showers,
As he fashioned the sword ana spear.
And he sang, "Hurrah for my handiwork!
Hurrah for the spear and the sword!
Hurrah for the hand that shall wield them
For he shall be king and lordP
But old Tubal's laureate, though 'writing
about an industry thousands of years old,
neither knew nor could know what any man
of eyes, ears and common apprehension can
learn in a week's tour of Pittsburg's iron
works. It is true there may be some like
the man to whom
The primrose on the river's brink,
A yellow primrose was to him.
And it was nothing more.
But they are not observant. Some 45
years ago we burned a man in effigy who
sneered at the "Birmingham of America."
We were proud of our iron works then, but
the most ardent dreamer could not conceive
the slightest idea of their possible growth
since then; nor, indeed, since 1860.
EfFANCr OF IRON.
The fact is not generally appreciated that
the most important and perfect system ever
devised for the setlement of troubles be
tween labor and capital in this the most
important indu-try in the world, except
agriculture the slfding-scale was devised
in this city by the organization known as
the Sons of Vulcan; but such is the case,
and from an old-time and intelligent iron
worker, who was a member of it, some inter
esting facts were learned concerning the ad
vancement of the iron business in this sec
tion in the last 35 years. He modestly re
fused to allow his came to be given. The
story sounded more like romance than sober
fact, but the evidences of its truth are scat
tered all the way from the sources of the
Conemaugh to the water shed that sep
arates the Lake Erie basin from the valley
of the Ohio. A few comparisons will show
In '1858 Jones & Laughlins'Jworks were
considered justly entitled to the distinction
of the "American Iron "Works." Their
puddling capacity then was 20 furnaces.
They have 90 now and have recentlv had
more than that in operation, and the finish
ing mills of the company have increased in
capacity, much more than the puddling de
partment At that time the ground now
covered by the immense Bepublic Iron
"Works, near .Tones & Laughlins', was an
open field. Subsequently the "Wharton
Bros.' rolling mill was built, the perm of
the Republic works. In loot, Lewi6,Uliver
& Phillips started in a small way with four
puddling furnaces. Now they have 91 and
the increase in the puddling department is
but one-third of that in the finishing de
partments. WAGES HIGHER PRICES LOWER.
Bight here another interesting feature
presents itself, and 'that is the ability of
manufacturers to pay larger wages than
they did when finished iron sold for about
twice what it does now. At this point the
doctrinaire will come in and tell you it is
owing to wise legislation, but in this he is
only partially right. It is owing to man's
ingenuity in the line of invention, and when
we are tempted to fall into a line of muring,
like the Psalmist, and exclaim in view, not
of the works of God 'ere man attempted to
transform them, but of the stupendous ma
chinery, which islargely the mifThsprinj of
activity in the modern world, "Lord, what
is man that Thou art mindful of him, or the
son of man that Thou reeardest him?" It
is well to pay some tribute to man's brain
also, for it is brain, and not altogether cap
ital, that has effected the transformation.
By means of tireless machinery, which only
charges interest wages when it is unem
ployed, one man does much more work than
he did 30 years ago, and what he does is
MOKE EASILY DONE.
Instead of the puddler and a lot of assist
ants laboriously tugging at a buggv to haul
his ball to the muck rolls, it is lifted out of
the furnace and sent spinning along, hung
to an overhead railway, and one man finds
the transportation but play. In the finish
ing departments the improvement is much
more marked than in the puddling depart
ment. From 1858 to I860 the price paid for pud
dling was 53 504 per ton, and even as low
in some instances as $3 25 per ton. against
$5 50 nowY It is true that house rent and
board were cheaper then than now, but
many other necessaries of life were dearer,
as owing to more crude methods
of production and difficult transport
ation, their cost was enhanced
as was that of finished iron. The higher
prices noted for puddling ante bellum were
paid in store goods, the lower in cash, a
yery common distinction before the war,
when the country merchant replied to in
terrogatories regarding prices of goods by
asking another question: "Cash or trade?"
In 1858 bar iron sold at 23 cents, and
now it can be had lor 1 7-10 cents in small,
and for 1 3-5 cents in 100-ton lots.
Of the ability to sell cheaper and pay more
for cost of production is simple. It has been
shown in many other kinds of business than
in iron making, but unfortunately its
demonstration is death to enterprises of
Email capitalists, and has done much to
destroy selfjfeliance, f for how many me
chanics can expect to save enough money
to go into business for themselves,
when at least 550,000 would be nec
essary to make a start, or how many farm
laborers at S20 a month and board and wash
ing can hope to save the ?10,000 necessary
to enable them to compete with the farmer
-who plows 10,000 acres and does 95 per cent
of his work by aid of machinery? It is so in
almost every field, commercial, manufactur
ing or farming. The man whose capital is
his skill or his muscle in the absence of ad
ventitious aids must be content with the
hope of acquiring enough to keep him out
of the poor house in his age, unless he haste
to become rich, in which event Holy "Writ
sayshecannot be innocent. Some'evolu
tionists, however, are satisfied with the
situation, holding that it merely marks a
phase in development, "Whatever is, is
SOME ASTOUN DING FACTS.
In 1867 Lewis, Oliver & Phillips' daily
output of muck bar was 10 tons, now it is
228 tons at so much less relative cost that
one-quarter ofa cent is now a much larger
profit than one-half cent would have been
then. Increased production through the aid
of improved machinery has accomplished it.
In 1860 the entire output of all the iron mills
in Pittsburg was not equal to three of the
largest now, and the merchant who sells
51,000,000 worth of goods a year at a net
urofitof4Terernt clears more money than
the man who sells $50,000 worth at a net
profit of 60 per cent, but organization and
large capital are necessary to accomplish it.
In addition to larger pay for production,
skilled mechanics do less work to accomplish
it than they did 30 years ago, and especially
since natuial ras has been used for fuel.
Previous to 1870 the puddler on the night
turn was compelled to work three to five
hours in melting ore to make fix for his fur
nace. Since then invention has relieved
him of that labor. At first "crushers" came
to his aid, and then "grinders," so that now
he is furnished with a pasty mass with
which he levels his furnace. Pnddlers,
however, say that the pig iron they are now
given is harder to work than that formerly
supplied them. Now the great aim .of blast
furnace proprietors is to get as great results
as possible, and in consequence the- carbon
in pic is in the graphitic form and very
high in silicon. Under the cold blast pro
cess carbon, as a rule, in lorge iron was in
a combined form and the silicon in it was
low, making it easier to convert into wrought
iron, ana ine cnange is mostly due to the
modern manner of running furnaces for all
that is in them trettinp the most iron tkjs-
sible out of the ore. In the olden time mill-
tap cinder was not used for dm. limestone
being used exclusively. The hot blast ex
tracts almost everything possible irom we
But great as has been the increase in out
put in iron making generally in 30 odd
years, it is" dwarfed in comparison with that
of railwav rail making. The Brady's Bend
rail mill was the first erected west of the
Allegheny Mountains, and Colonel "W. D.
Slack, superintendent of the Homeopathic
Hospital, could doubtless tell much of in
terest concerning it. It had the field all to
itself until the Cambria Iron "Works at
Johnstown were established in the '50s.
At the Brady's Bend mill an output of 200
tons of rails a week was considered some
thing worth boasting of. Now the Edgar
Thomson, from Sunday evening at 6 o'clock
until Saturday following at 4 o'clock P. M.,
shoves out a rail a minute. Averaging
heavv and light sections at 60 pounds, this
is an'output of 600 pounds a minute, 18
tons an hour, 2,556 tons in two hours less
than a week, and enough rail to lay some
24 miles of track.
Notwithstanding the immense saving in
human labor, there is no falling off in the
amount of labor employed, but on the con
trary it has increased in a greater ratio.
THE GRAND RESULTS.
The milfman talked with said: "Thy-ty
years ago I knew every man I worked with
in a mill; now I do not know by name one
third of the men in the mill 'where Lam
employed. Labor has not only not been
hurt by machinery, but has received benefit
This has been general experience. The
descendants of the English laborers who
burned the ricks and barns of farmers, who
employed threshing machines and other
labor-saving machinery, are to-day getting
50 per cent more wages than did their an
cestral incendiaries when nearly everything
was done by hand. Not many years after
the whisky rebellion in this State the peo
ple west of the Chestnut Ridge prophesied
ruin on the completion of the Pennsylvania
canal. They said there would be no sale for
cither horses or grain and sighed even
for the return of the time when salt and
iron were packed on the backs of mules and
thus transported from Philadelphia to Pitts
burg. The result, however, was that good
horses, instead of selling at 550 to 575
apiece, brought 5100 to 5150, and oats rose
to 25 cents a bushel, whereas they had ruled
at 10 to 12J cents previously. The price of
almost everything advanced in proportion,
and vet people, as soon as the transition
period was past, were able to buy more at
the advanced than they had been at pre
