WASHINGTON. Aug. 20. How
the European war Is causing an In
crease In the prices of certain metals
and affecting tho production of oth
ers Is told by tho Geological Survey
today. The war ban raised the New
York price of tin to C5 cents a pound.
In July tin sold as low as 30.5 cents
a pound. Tho rise In price Is at
tributed to Insecurity of ocean
freights which aro carried largely In
English and German bottoms.
Antimony, ordinarily one of tho
cheaper pietals, has reached more
than 20 cents a pound, a price higher
than that of aluminum. This Is dun
to the fact that practically all of the
metal used In the United States Is Im
ported from European smelters.
With tbo greater part of white ar
senic used in America coming from
European countries Imports will un
doubtedly bo seriously diminished.
