Confident of Benefits From Tsfi's

Manila, Nov. 12. A feature of ths
visit of Secretary of War Tsft to Manila
was the presence of Aguinsldo at sever
si of the functions, for the first time
since bis capture. Discussing the visit
of Mr. Taft to Manila with a repreten
tatlve of the Associated Press, he said
"It is my belief that the benefits to
follow the visit, to the peonle of the
Philippines, will be greater than they
can reckon at the present time. I am

REPORT BIG STEEL OUTPUT.
Production Probably Will Be Curtailed
Cleveland, O., Nov. 11. Re porta
from the building trades reveal aoiuo
remarkable conditions. Although for
a number of weeks new business l as
been reduced to a small volume, Statis
tics of production for the past month
shorn th seldom in ths bUtory cf ths
rtt Via a s wh larva ton ns wee be la
turned out. For exauiph, the Ameri
can Bridge company, the largest pioduc
er of structural material, turned out
60,000 tons last month, but sjld only
one-third of that amount.
A steel corpoiatiou made so pi la! ng
records at l'ituburg. Tbe Carnegie
company broke records at Its various
planta. The Illinois Hteel company
not only broke all its previous records
but did sc in every lndivldiisl depart
ment in all three works, South Chicago,
Milwaukee and Jollrt.
Even mote surprising than all there
waa the blaat furnace production for
CXt ber, which, according tc the statis
tics of the Iron Trade Review reached
a new hia-h point In tbe history of the
trade, the production being 2.362,630
tons, compared with the largest output.
2.2H1.030 tons in May of thia year. Ia
other words the production for October
waa at the rate oi about 28,000,000 tona
The statistics for November W'll
doubtless tell a vastly diffeient story.
Many sheet and tin plate mills have
been closed and the sheet bar mills of
the steel corporation at Columbua anJ
lie 11a ire are idle. Tbe corporation now
has 21 blast furnaces out of commission
and independent concerns are curtailing
their product. Hence it may be confi
dently expected that the output of both
pig Iron and finished materials would
be much smeller thia month than for
any previous month of tbe year.
