The Boston Financial News af
ter briefly summarizing the copper
market, says the demand for elec
trolytic copper is reinforced by a
heavy French demand, said to be
for use in the construction of some
of tho big Dew French battleships.
A Chinese demand for large ton
nages of electrolyte was also in the
market. This copper (3, 000.000
pounds wanted), will be used for
purposes of currency. These Chi
nese mints have been working
steadily on the stocks of copper
that have been acquired, but it is
reported that they will soon be
again in the market for additional
tonnages to meet their requirements
for the next two years. One of the
best informed Boston metal brokers
says that during the past two weeks
immense tonnages of electrolytic
and other high grade copper have
been placed. This tonnage is said
to amount to 30,000,000 pounds.
Loudon metal merchants report the
