2 BOTIIIi; OF STEEL RAILS 111 1915 BY ROADS UNCERTAIN Thus Far There Is No Sign of the Ex tent to Wklet They WiU Depart .From Policy of Buying Only For Urgent Needs New York, Jan. I.—"The Iron Age,'' says the main development of the last week of 1914 is tho action of a number of m»nuf*etur«w of bars, structural shapes and plates in advanc ing prices from 1.04 c., Pittsburgh, on earlv deliveries, lo I.loc. One inde pendent bar inter»«t mad« the ad\ame week. On Wednesday, December 30 tho Carnegie Steel Company with drew 1.05 c. quotations and announced as Ms minimum prices on the three pro ducts, I.loc. for ilsTst quarter and 1.16 c. for -second quarter. Two independent producers in these, lines are reported to have ta'ken a. simj. lar stand this week, and the indications* are that the 1.06 c. price is not being carried into the new * The amount of first quarter contracts booked at 1.10 c.. on which readjust ments would 'bo accessary if any lower price prevails on current business is « strowg- incentive to sellers to hold the new minimum. Interest has naturally centered, apart from that taken in this price movement in three market staples, in the outlook for railroad buying. Thus far there is no sign of the extent to .which rail roads will dejrart from the policy of 'buying for urgent needs. Kail orders were placed early this year; Sim ilar orders are likely to come out early in 1'915. The Pennsylvania and the B. and O. are expected to buy soon. Some Eastern lines gave 1914 rollings on rails that will not be needed until next spring. The aggregate of track supplies soon to be required is considerable. One Eastern rail mill has 'booked 8,000 tons in the past week and other Eastern rail inquiries are pending, including 4,500 tons for the 'Boston and Albany. Due to the -reduced state of -railroad traffic and the fact that new ears can be had in six weeks, there is no hurry to .piaco car orders, but a few roads are looking up their needs. Prominence has been 'gtiven in this connection to the Pennsylvania raiiihroad's probable re quirements of 9,000 cars of various types. The Illinois Central is Still nego tiating for 1,000 refrigerator cars. Deceiriber bookings of all independ ent steel companies have been consider ably larger than those of November, though few reached the 100 per cent-, rate of gwirn reported by the Steel Cor poration for the first three weeks of this month, that being apparently due to the inclusion of some special con tracts with extended deliveries. The -rate of mill operations in early January will show a moderate increase upon tne December average. Steel con sumption is little changed, but spec ilia eaitions have come in /better of late on low priced contracts running out with [December. Predictions range from 50 to 65 ceinit. as the probable operation by the end of the first quarter. foreign barb wire demand is hard to measure. Probably 75,000 tons of what is talked about is actually wanted, much of it for Great 'Britain. TTurther large inquiries for shrapnel bars huve also come up. Russia is in the market for :2,300 tons of cold rolled strip. Tin plate works are exceptional in running at nearly 70 .per cent, of ca pacity. Since shipments for Pacific coats canneries are to be by the Pana ma canal earlier rollings than usual are required. The Standard Oil plate con timet, 20,- 0-00 tons for shipment in the first half of 1915, has gone into an eastern Penn syhania mill. December inquiry for east iron pipe coining from gas and water companies and other private buyers has been the largest for that month since 1906. Low prices have been the stimulant. Balti more has just bought 7,400 tons and Chicago 7,500 tons. Cincinnati will take bids on 2,400 tons and Boston on 3.500 tons. The first compilation of statistics of this product shows the country's output to have been 1,266,- 2 15 net tons in 1913. Pig iron buying is still going on in the Central West alter subsiding first in the Wist and then in the South. A Vra lunl increase in bfcist furuaee opera tion is probable in the new year. Wher ever furnaces have taken on tonnages filling tHem up for several months, they •have advanced prices, but tho gain has not been general. Most Middle Western furnaces will run tlurough the first quar ter on sales barely showing a profit. KILLED TRAPPED BEAR But Not Until He Was Badly Bitten and Clawed Kane, Pa., -lan. I.—Abraham Per sing, of Oil < itv, had a narrow escape from death as the result of an encount er with a large black bear near Chapel Pork, eleven miles south of this city. Persing was walking through "the! woods with his dog, ,vhen he discovered a bear with its front feet caught in a trap. The animal attacked Persing, who plunged his knife into the bear live times. Theu the bear succeeded in getting Persing's face in his jaws, at the same time throwing his paw around Persing's neck. When the bear closed his jaws on the left side of Persing's face the man gave a desperate thrust with his knife and pulled away. The llesh was torn from his face, and he had sustained a bad scalp wound. In spit of his injuries, Persing was able to return to his camp, where thirty stitches were taken in the wounds by \ a physician. Persing later found the bear dead. Lebanon Marriage Licenses t Jan.

Boger up to noon yesterday had issued to aspiring couples 494 mar riage licenses for the year, 1914, In 1913, 490 licenses were issued with I 1913 leariSng off for the tho three i years, with a. total of 523 licenses. ! | HwJ ATLANTA. 254 ia.
