THE RCB ANTON TRIBUNE TUES DAT MORNING. NOVEMBER 13, 1894.
MINE, MILL AND RAILROAD.
The month of October records a fur
ther addition to the production of pig
Iron in the United States. The weekly
output is now larger than at any time
since May, 1893, and only 22,685 tons be
low the maximum output in that year.
The average production of the furnaces
has Increased as shown by the fact that
on May 1, 1893, the output of 251 fur
naces was 181,551 tons, or an average of
723 tons, while the 181 furnaces now In
blast have an average output of 877
tons, an Increase of over 21 per cent.
The number of furnaces now in blast
Bhows an increase of nine for the month,
but an Increase of only 7,731 tons in the
weekly production. The iron trade is
considered to be the barometer of gen
eral business and In this respect it
shows a remarkable recovery from the
low point of depression In the summer.
Since June 1 the weekly production has
Increased from 62.517 tons to 158,866 tons,
an increase of 96,349 tons, or 154 per
cent., the number of furnaces in blast
having increased from 88 on June
1 to 181 on Nov. 1. The remarkable
feature of this large increase Is that
It has been coincident with a decline
In prices and disturbance of the mar
kets of all kinds of iron unl steel by the
tinkering with the tariff. The con
sumption of charcoal and pig iron has
been about equal to the production,
while the consumption of anthracite
has been very heavy, having reduced
stocks about 20,000 tons, notwithstand
ing the more active production. These
figures Indicate that the Iron trade is
In a healthy condition. Prices are on a
ver low basis, but on the other hand
cost of production has been propor
tionately reduced, and any change must
now be in the direction of higher prices.
It is known that large orders for ma
terial are being held back, and the plac
ing of, any, ohe-quarter of the same
would give a decided Impetus to the
trade. It does not appear probable to
the Commercial Advertiser, from which
theBe figures are taken, that these or
ders can be held back much longer, as
the material will be needed for use in
the spring. The necessities of the rail
roads alone make a larger total, and
makers confidently look for an active
demand for structural material. The
crisis in the iron trade was passed some
time since, and the tendency now is in
the direction of improvement, which,
however, will be gradual but progres
sive. The scarcity of empty cars continues.
To a considerable extent this is due to
the great number of loaded cars stand
ing on the side-tracks and switches of
the various roads. The fact that the
operators are unable to get a sufficient
tupply of cars Is really the reason for
the seml-restrlctlon which is reported.
Were cars abundant there Is no telling
how much anthracite might not be
mined now that it has been decided to
work on full time. The Engineering and
Mining Journal thinks it is, perhaps,
a fortunate thing for the operators that
Buch a state of affairs exists, for a
full tonnage this month would more
than ever diminish the chances of seeing
The famous Jeddo tunnel "is about
completed. The contractors, Scott &
King, have been pushing the work very
Quietly, and, except the men engaged at
the work, no one knew how they were
progressing until last night. It is now
learned that the blast which, it is ex
pected, will break the dlvlBlon of rock
and release the water, is now In readi
ness to be set off. It Is expected that
this will be done this morning. Last
night the bore hole, which was driven
from the surface to meet the water-way
ana tnrougn which tne wires to un
charge .the dynamite are to be run, was
completed. The lines, as given by En
gineer Palmer, came out within an Inch
of the point where he had made his loca
tions. The final stroke will finish one of
the greatest feats of engineering ever
attempted In the history of coal mining.
The detailed report of the operation
and output of the Connellsvllle coke
region for the week ended Saturday,
Nov. 3, shows 14,024 active and 3,550 idle
Dvens, with a total estimated produc
tion of 139,588 tons. Compared with the
production of the previous week, this
was a decrease of 2,234 tons. In the
active list there was a net decrease of
330 ovens. This lessening of the active
list was responsible for the setback in
production. The shipment for the week
aggregated 7,427 cars, consigned as fol
lows: To Pittsburg and river tipples,
2,342 cars; to points west of Pittsburg,
3.750 cars; to points east of Connells
vllle, 1,335 cars. Compared with the
shipments of the previous week, this
was a decrease of fifty-five cars. The
circular prices of coke are as follows:
Furnace coke, $1; foundry goke, 11.15;
crushed coke, $1.40; all per ton of 2,000
pounds on board cars at ovens.

expend $500,000 upon the plant'on receiv
ing the assurance that it will get the
contracts. In his annual report Com
modore Sampson, chief of the naval
ordnance bureau, calls for $500,000 to be
expended in beginning to provide arma
ment for the steamers registered under
the provisions of the subsidy acts, which
make them available for use by the
United States as transports or cruisers.
In case such vessels as the New York,
Paris or the new St. Louis should be
called into service it would require
many months to provide batteries for
them. No guns are now available for
the purpose and none are authorized.
Last Saturday evening, says the
Hazleton Standard, the last shovel full
of clay was removed from the No. 3
Wharton stripping at Tresckow. Dick
& Mantz had a steam shovel working
there for the past year in which time
many thousand yards of clay were
removed. When the Lehigh and Wilkes
Barre company opened up the vein to
remove some of the coal they .discov
ered it to be a flat failure, the coal be
ing but two feet thick in many places.
What coal Is stripped will be removed,
but no further outlay of cash will be
made there. The steam shovel which
has been engaged In the work will likely
be abanduned for the winter. '

By the United Press,
New York, Nov. 12. The opening of
the stock market was irregular, some
of the active issues showing advances,
while others scored losses. The irregu
larity was the result of heavy selling
for London account, and the total sales
for this account was fully 16,000 shares,
the offerings being well taken, and be
fore 11 o'clock the whole list was on the
advance once more. The rise Induced
profit taking and the early gains were
generally lost. Late in the day the ac
tive traders, usually arrayedonthebear
Bide of me account, discovered heavy
liquidations by an operator responsible
for the big rise in sugar and immediate
ly the bears began to Increase In their
short lines. As a result the closing
was barely steady, with net changes
showing losses of to 1 per cent, in
the active list. Sales 280,000 shares.
