CONSUMPTION OF PIG IRON
HAS MATERIALLY DECLINED
Critical Situation In the Iron and Steel
Trade Has Not Been Allayed During
the Past WeeK.
New York, June 9. From the sta
tistical returns It looks, says the Iron
Age, as though the consumption of pig
Iron had declined very materially since
March, while expanding1 production
has not been checked from last month.
The output for May was 1,633,500 tons
of anthracite and coke pig Iron, as
compared with 1,654,000 tons In April
But the rate of output, which had
reached 366,000 tons a week on Slay
1,. had dropped back to 336,000 tons on
The corrective was quietly applied,
but meantime-stocks-which were de
dining steadily during the first quar
ter of the year, were Increasing dur
ing May, there having been an accumu
lation of 100,000 tons during that
month alone. Two-thirds of this ad
dition to the stock must be credited
to the central west and to the north
west. This indicates quite a shrink
age In the demand, which even the cut
ting down In the receipt of production
may not counterbalance. It , was to
be noted, however, that already there
lias been a further reduction In the
output by the blowing out of additional
furnaces since the opening of the
It is not surprising that the pig iron
markets have weakened further, and
Bermingham Is now on the basis of 9
for No. 2 foundry with one transaction
Involving 12,000 tons closed this week.
It Is Interesting to note that some ex
port business in southern Basic pig
has been done.
Valley furnaces are barely getting
S12 for No. 2 foundry, and Bessemer
pig and one exceptionally low sale of
low Phosphorus pig iron has been
made in eastern Pennsylvania. Pool
prices on steel billets are more and
more out of line with present condi
tions, compared with those prevailing
when the schedule was adopted.
The demand is still light in the heav
ier branches of finished trade.
In the structural trade some of the
long delayed Baltimore business has
been coming In, no that expectations of
larger orders from that quarter are
revived. The bar trade is disappoint
ing, and cutting Is going one, notably
In the west
Negotiations are in progress and are
expected to be completed within a
few days, according to the Herald,
whereby control of the Cincinnati,
Hamilton & Dayton railroad, known
as the "Natural Gas Route," will
change hands. The syndicate now In
control of the Pere Marquette system
probably will have a powerful If not
dominating voice in the affairs of the
Cincinnati Hamilton & Dayton.
Eugene Zimmerman of Cincinnati,
who Is one of the largest stockhold
era, has been in the city several days
past completing preliminaries looking
to the passing of the control of his
property. Associated with him is II.
F. Shoemaker of this city, also a large
stockholder. These two men have
been In conference with representatives
of the Per. Marquette line.
Incidentally It became known that
the Pere Marquette had secured con
trol of the Toledo Belt railway, which
was built by S. F. Fordyce. Bankers
have recelxed propositions to buy S3,
500,000 of bonds on this property, the
bonds to be jointly guaranteed by the
Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton and
the Pere Marquette.
At Toledo the two big systems will
connect and the aqulsition of the To
ledo Belt line is considered a valuable
Officials of the Cincinnati, Hamilton
& Dayton, while admitting that a
change in the control of their property
was about to be made, refused to con
firm the report that the Pere Mar
quette would absorb it The deal is
likely to be closed this week.
The Zimmerman road runs through
a rich manufacturing center of Ohio
and Indiana in the natural gas fields
of those states, it operates more than
650 miles of line and has a capital of
$16,000,000 with 315,000,000 of bonded
indebtedness in addition.

REJOICE AT HIS DEATH.
WOMAN WILL HANG.
Pardon Refused Female Murderer in
New York, June 9. For the first
time In 40 years, a woman has been
doomed In New Jersey through the
refusal of the court of pardons to
Interfere with her death on the gallows
for murder. Mrs. Anna Valentine, who
killed Mrs. Rosie Salza at Lodi, N. J.:
last March, will be the victim, and she
probably will be executed June 16 at
Hackensack, N. J. At her trial Mrs.
Valentine confessed her crime and said
in open court she was ready to die
She said that the Salza woman called
her vile names and in a frenzy she
stabbed her tormenter 17 times with
