Never before in the history of the United States
has there been such a shortage of wireon account
of the coal mine and steel strikes. In fact, no deliv
eries will be promised by the wire mills at any price.
It is the only city on the Pacific Coast to have
No. 8 and No. 14 wire for several months. I have
combed the entire country and have secured all the
wire of this kind that could be secured! any price.
I even secured 40 tons of this wire from the U. S.
government and sold it the same day.
