It is announced in certain business
circles that one of the oldest and largest
of the houses engaged in the Importation
of iron and steel into Boston has erected
a mill and a complete plant in Sweden,
and will there make steel directly from
the Swedes ore- To readers unacquainted
with the facts, it may be explained that
the Swedish irons are the best in the
world for melting into steel; in fact, for
the higher grades of steel used for expen
sive tools, no other iron will answer. The
value of the iron trade to Sweden and
Norway is so great that the government
supervises it, in some degree, requiring
each brand to be recorded and imposing
a heavy penalty upon the maker when
the iron of any brand is shown to have
fallen below its established and recorded
standard of excellence. It looks if this
might be a serious matter for several
classes of business men. If Norway and
i Swedes iron are to be made into steel
over there, the American importing deal-
| ers will he comparatively idle.
