THE ROYAL JUBILEE METAI EXCHANGE (INCORPORATED). SWANSEA, Tuesday, May 21. 1901. There was a large attendance on 'Change to-day, and the Market appeared to be more animated than usual, consumers appearing to be more anxious to cover themselves with raw materials. Pig Iron.—The prices of Pig Iron seem to ba more favourable for their operations, as a slight decrease in prices is shown, notwith- standing that the stocks of Scotch and Hema- tite slibw a further decrease, while Cleveland shows an increase, but this increase will no doubt be shortiy relieved with the season shipments to the North of Europe. Finished Iron and Steel.—In sympathy with the better tone in the market, prices are firmer, and Tinplate Bars are strongly held out at the quotations given below. Con- siderable business has been done, while there is pressure for deliveries. Tinplates.—1The receipts from works appear to be in excess of the shipments, and conse- quently an increase in stocks is the result.
