So water, grease or attention of
any kind required. Just put in your

the Iron Age. What is almost a dead

iron coutinues, the ouly fair degree of
activity being in the Chicago district.
Virginia furnaces have sold there and in
St. Louis basic pig to the extent of about
7.tXX) tons and inquiry for this class of
ron is cropping up in other directions.
The Birmingham market is weaker in
spite of the fact that there is some un
easiness over the possibility of troubles
with the coal miners.
The absence of a demand for pig iron
by the large steel companies is causing
pressure upon the market on the part of
merchant furnaces who usually supply
them and who are now accumulating met
The market for steel is easier and some
of the interests who have had little to
offer in the past are now hunting for bus

Kew York, June 8. Resolutions sug
gesting radical reforms in the manage

Society were adopted at today's meet

many important changes in the financial
policy of the society.

Somerville declared that no allowance
can lie made to importers on any impor

absence of currency certificate issued by
the American consul.
The importer claimed in their pro

the depreci ited paper currency of Greece
and that it should have been taken by
the collector at a discount of aliout 02
per cent as compared with the standard
Judue Sommerville pointed out, howl
ever, the importance of obtaining consu

preciation is recognized ollicially and
must lie attached to the invoice, as re
quired by the consular regulations. The
collectors' valuation, which was based on
tables compiled by the director of the

FOR LOCAL OPTION.
Petition Being Circulated in Upper As
A petition was circulated yesterday in
Upper Astoria asking that the question
of local option in the district east of the
Clatsop mill to the eastern limits of the
city, be submitted to the voter at the
city election in December. The petition
was generally signed, very few to whom
it was presented refusing to sign.
There is a strong growing sentiment in
that section of the city to close up all
the saloons, it being claimed that it Is
a resident district. Knthusiastic meet
ings have ieen held during the past
month and a strong public sentiment
worked up. The question will 1 sub

election and there is no doubt but that
it will carry by a large majority. There
are five saloons that will In- effected if
the proposition carries, all of which will
be forced out of business. The city de
