Fifteen Arrests Reported in One Okla
homa Cotton County
A.l more, Okla., Oct. 30. —Cotton

; Southern Railway Awards Contract For
the Purchase of 4,400 Tons 01 Rails
—Money Had Been Appropriated
For Other Purposes
New York, Oct. 30.—"The Iron
Age'' says the winter prospect for the
steel traile is not encouraging. Other
: years have usually seen bark logs in
; the shape of contracts for steel rails,
j structural steel ami other staple pro
; ducts affording some basis for steaili
| ncss iu steel works operations. Mill
| books are almost bare of such business
j at this time. Current orders now repre
j sent but a fraction of the capacity of
| mills. It will be necessary to go back
j a number of years to find a time when
j steel companies had a smaller tonnage
; of railroad business than at prosent.
j 1 nder these circumstances it is note
| worthy that the Pennsylvania Steel
Company has received an order from
| the Southern railway for 4,400 tons of
j rails, the purchase being made with
I money tflat had been appropriated for
: other purposes. The general rate of
j steel mill operations at Pittsburgh is
I onlv 40 to 45 per cent, of capacity,
| while the Chicago mills are likely to
j drop to 30 per cent, this week. For part
| of the week no Chicago plate mills will
be in operation.
Prices are giving way. Billets, sheet
! bars and wire rods are off 50 cents per
i ton, steel plates and sheets $1 per ton,
| and tin plates $2 per ton. Lower than
1 cent per pound, Chicago, has beeu
done on bar iron.
Pig iron makers are no longer ex
! pecting higher prices, as they are show
j ing more willingness to book orderies
j for delivery extending into next year
| at the best prices they are able to ob
j tain. This has led to some increase iu
I business in a few of the leading pig
iron markets. An important develop
ment is the entrance into the foundry
iron market of steel companies in the
i ' bicago district. They are not using
j their current make of pig iron and are
! turning to the foundry trade although
| that branch of business is at present so
j depressed that many of the merchant
j furnaces in the district are out of blast,
i This has had the natural effect of
j weakening local pig iron prices,
j Throughout the country generally the
I effort to secure pig iron business has
led to a reduction of about 2.") cents
, per ton except in Alabama, where the
| producers are apparently making a
I stand at $lO for Vo, 2 foundry, even
! though stocks in their yards are rap-
I idly accumulating. Bessemer and basic
j pig iron have declined 25 cents iu the
! Pittsburgh district.
The Ohio railroads have advanced
j their freiiht rates on pi<» iron 5 nor
' cent., making the rate •>m the Ma
| honing \ allev to Cleveland 95 cents
: per ton. against the old rate of 90
j cents.
The closing of contracts for 8.700
j tons of structural steel in this locality
'is somewhat encouraging, while Cleve
land also reports some good structural
I contracts. C'lii aso. however, notes that
I seldom lias that center offered less of
! 'hteres* in this branch of business than
! now.
I Definite figures are now available
| with regard to the sensational pur-
I chases of American 111, i 'nine tools by
Europe. At least 1.700 engine laMi°B
i have been bought in the pa- fortnight.
\ while turret lathes, automatics ami
> grinding machines have been taken in
good quantity. Kven Germany has
bough some machine tools here. In
quiries for a large number of other ma
chine tool". including about t.OOO
lathes are in hand, nronnsina to de
| velop into orders. This increase in
i business has greatly improved the tone
| of this branch of trade and the domes
tic de/nand is beginning to revive. Some
machine tool makers are now working
double time.
It - estimated that >iot less then
j .iO,OOO tons of barb wire has beeu
I shipped abroad since the European war
I broke out. The merchant, pipe trade
; is somewhat improved, October makin :
a better showing in point of business
booked than September. An order has
1 been placed for about 60 miles of line
I pipe to be used in Texas, this being the
; first gooil line pipe order for some time.
Pittsburgh Judge Imposes Sentences on
