IRON AND STEEL IN MIDST BIGREY1YAL Every Blast Furnace in United States Working: Say and Night to Its Capacity. 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 ia today almost Impossible to buy, for Immediate delivery, pig iron, scrap and ingots In sizable quantltlea at Industrial plants la the country. '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 cent. 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 to the purchasers with respect to a large majority of tha different kin da of fin ished ateel. "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 have been and are Increasing, and. ap 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 tr,,n u' '' plants throughout the United States who were not on the pay rolls a year ago. This Is about a 60 per cent Increase. 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. Hallroad Plaeea Olsi Order. PHILADELPHIA, Oct Orders for lTEi.000 tons of steel rails were placed by tha Pennsylvania Railroad company tc ; day. Those rails oover ths 1916 require ments 'of ths road. In addition, an order was placed with the Baldwin Locomotive woras for the construction of seventy-flvs heavy freight looomotlvea for immediate delivery. Producers Meet With Consumers CHICAGO.

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.

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 and Is sent abroad by way of the Qulf ef Mexico. .'
