Rtctlftr Paxaon, of the Radinff, lias returned from bin European trip. The ju I go was in Europe n little over three weeka, spending one week in Paris and nearly all tha rest of the time in Lon don. His trip Mi solely for plonsure, although ha saw a number of persons largely interested in the Readiug. To these lie explained the condition of the property and the steps that were taken hy the receivers, with wbiob. they seemed satisfied. Judge Piixson said he found E iiflish invostera vsry dia trnsttnlof American securities. Tha disclosures alf .'ctiui; certain properties now in the hands of the receivers hal created a very unfavorable feeling in regard lo American investments. This MDtimtDt, however, did not extend to the proposed issu of bands by the treasury, the opinion being general that the issue would be successfully Boated. Twenty-fivo hnnired men wars at work in the Pennsylvania Steel com pany's mills, at Steelton yesterday COMrqntDt on the restarting of one Bessemer, one rail, the Meruhaut and two bloom mills, which will emply an aggregate force of 1,. 1(10 people. Since the lUspfDlioO, which went into effect over a month ago.only about 1,000 men have been employed at the extensive works. When all the works owned by the company are in full operation near ly 4,000 persons are required to per form the necessary labor. As tu de mand for material of various kinds made by tho company haanot justified the resumption of work in them, three of the four furnaces attached to the steel plant are idle, and any pig iron needed outside of mat piled up in the yards is being received from other points.
