It Is noted. Is despite tha tact that Lord
Derby's scheme for calling men by sec

those not engaged In work connected with
tha military production, has not yet bees
put Into operation. Manchester and Bir

showing the best result.
One of the chief obstacles confront

men to join the colors, are not only re

done In the earlier stages of the war, but
will not guarantee that employes who en

IRON AND STEEL IN

PRICES ADVANCE ONE-THIRD
NEW YORK, Oct 28. So great
haa been the general revival In the
Iron and ateel trade of the United
States, It was said by authorities to
day, that with virtually every blast
furnace and steel-mill In the country
working night and day to capacity,
the demand for iron, steel and steel
products cannot be satisfied, and It

'Within three months, the price of
pig Iron, long regarded as the barom
eter of trade, haa Increased approxi
mately 35 per cent, and that of ateel
and steel producta (except ateel
rails), haa gone up about 15 per
At ths present time tha demand for
pig iron and for tha various lines of
steel is in excess of the producing ca
pacity of tha furnaces and mills of the
United States," reads a statement Issued
today by Judge Elbert H. Gary, cflalr
man of tha United States Steel corpora
tion. "Tiie manufacturers are unable
to make deliveries entirely , satisfactory

majority of tha different kin da of fin
"There la nothing to indicate that TTiere
will be s decrease in the demand for
any of theas producta for some time.
While piioes received are atlll low, they

parently will go higher, that fair
and reasonable profits may be expected.
"Of course, these very satisfactory con
ditions are mora or less affected by
tha war business, so-called, yet It la un
doubtedly true that there la a better
feeling throughout the general Iron and
steel trade than has been experienced
for some years past."
Experts who have followed ths rising
fortunes of Iron and aXeel within the
last twelve mouths, asserted today that
tha volume of business, both domestic
and foreign, at present ia more than
double what It was a year ago, and that
there are today ITC.OOO men employed at

Ths fires havs been lighted in virtually
every blast furnace In the United States.
In tha case of ths steel corporation the
last remaining Idle furnace, at Columbus,
O., Is now being put Into operation.
Reel and steel products are rolling out
of ths mills today at the rate of 60,
000,000 tons a year. It Is conservatively
estimated, and Iron Is being manufac
tured at ths rate of 40.000,000 tone.

PHILADELPHIA, Oct Orders for
lTEi.000 tons of steel rails were placed by
tha Pennsylvania Railroad company tc

Arthur Le euuer, vies president of the

plained that the flot stup of the plan

Nebraska Wheat is
Moving to the Gulf
With Omaha . wheat ' receipts running
around 100 carloads per day, tha elevators
are not filling up, due to the fact that
almost aa soon as the grain arrives it is
blended, loaded out and sent on. Ths
result of this Is that the quantity of
wheat In storage In Omaha continues to
be st the lowest point since the city be
came a grain market.
For the last thirty days, and as a mat
ter of fact, ever since the German sub
marines have discontinued attacking
(ocean-going steamers the export grain
business out of Omaha has been tha
heaviest In the history of the market
At this time practically all ths wheat
coming Into Omaha goes to the south
