WASHINGTON , November 21. The

Senor Netto , Brazilian minister
hero , in an interview to-night Bays
the published rumors of a coming
conflict between Brazil and Argentine
Confederation o or a disputed piece
of territory are entirely unfounded ;
not even a whisper of a rupture of the
friendly relations hitherto existing be
tween thojo two countries haa yet
reached diplomatic circles in Wash
ington. While it is true that diplo
matic negotiations between tbo repre
sentatives of the two governments ro-
upecting the disputed boundary ques
tion nro now in progress in Bnutios
Ayrcs , still it is not true that they are
likely to resort to arms to settle the con
troversy. The negotiations.Nottosays ,
are btn g conducted inu fr.ondly way.
The political relations between the
two countries are of the most friendly
character ; their commercial inter
course and trudo relations are cxton-
tire ur.d mutually profitable , all of
which justifies the hopu and expecta
tions that an amicably and oatUfac-
tory adjustment of the difficulty will
soon bo reached. In this connection
it may bo mentioned that Senor Notto
will honor Seuor Dominguez , the
newly appointed minister of Argen
tine confederation , with A dinner on
Saturday night next , to which the at-
titchoa of the legation have been in

also that § 5,000,000 of bonds were
iasned in payment for construction of
telegraph lines worth $3,500,000.
Counsel for the petitioners held that
the attorney general mun graft the
application because the Mutual Union
violated its charter in increasing capi
tal beyond thu limit fixed in its article
of incorporation and becaunotho stock
so issued had been illegilly divided
among the oflicors of the company
under guise of a construction contnot.
The attorney general took the papers

PiTisutmo , November 21. An old

terviewed to-day on the iron and Btool
outlook. Hot-aid : "Thu decrease in
the price of steel was perfectly legiti
mate and was caueed not by any one
man or not of men but by the natural
sequence of events aud laws of supply
and demand. " In seventeen years' ex
perience ho had never known the Bteel

Pigirou is so low that it is made at n

$20 50 and $21 , dealers willingly

J. D. Weeks , secretary of the Iron
nsociation , takes moro hopeful views
aud gave as an explanation of the
cjmscs which led to the recent reduc
tion in price of Bessemer steel rails ,
that-whon the country had recovered
from long depression of business ,
great activity in railroad building
created a heavy demand for rails and
for a while a largo amount was im
ported , but soon the Bessemer rails
reached out for this trade and at once
all begun to enlarge their facilities for
production and the work of extension
hac been going n ever since. The
production has steadily increased und
this } car the consumption of pigiron
was greater than the entire outpat in
1875 It is probable that the danger
may bu overrated and readjustment of
price of labor and material may prevent -
vent any further scare. One thing
I believe , thut establishments in thia
locality can run when western mills
may be compelled to atop When tlio
panic struck the country thu western
mills were first to succumb , while
Pittsburg concerns ran on. It h u
fact during the depression there was
periods when moro iron was made in
Pittsburg than had been turned out
when everything was booming.
