SHRINKAGE IN FIG IRON
Export Trade in Wire Products Still
Good—Horse Shoe Works Will Run
Full Until February on European
Mew York, Nov. s.—"The Iron
Ago'' says that taking tihe election re
sults as iu no small measure a popular
expression on tbe existing tariff law, t'bo
steel trade finds encouragement iu t)hem.
The belief Miait there would be such an
outcome and the recognition of a slight
turn for the better in money conditions,
in cotton and in all exports led to more
hopeful utterances by the steel manu
facturers -who met a* Birmingham last
week than might have 'been expected
from tihe smallest rate of incoming new
business ever known.
Shrinkage in production continues,
and November output will show a scal
ing down from October. S'ome of the
smaller steel companies in the 'Central
V. est have redraced salaries as well as
t'he wages of mil! workers and some
Pennsylvania companies have similar
reductions under consideration. Pre
dictions of general reductions January

more to the unparalleled hardships of
the situation than to any definite de
Our pig iron statistics show how the
industry has been receding. In October
production was 1.783,045 tons, or 57,-
518 tons a day, against 1,882,577 tons
in September, or 62,753 tons a day. The
October rate was the smallest since
January, 1911* T'he net loses iu active
furnaces in October was 18. t'here being
158 in blast as November opened, with
53.253 tons daily capacity, against 176
furnaces and a daily (capacity of 60,-
427 tons one month previous.
Many steel works furnaces have been
blown out and the recent increases -in
pig iron stocks of the steel companies
are likely to add more furnaces to the
idle list. Average producttio'n of steel
ingots is now prabafolv nearer 40 than
50 per cent, of capacity.
