j SWANSEA METAL EXCHANGE. R TUESDAT, Get. 21st, 1902. There was a fair attendance on 'Change to- day, including several buyers from the Midlands and elsewhere. PIG-IKON-.—The shipments have been good good but with a slight increase all round in stocks. Prices have fluctuated a little down- wards in sympathy with the reports of the settlement of the American strike, but it will take some time to get up the production to satisfy the demand, and the continuance of ship- ments on this side will not cease for some time, at any rate not for the remainder of this year, so that no reduction of any moment can be ex- pected to take place. FINISHED IKON AND STEEL.—Since Quarter day more orders have been given out, which were with held until the continuation of the prices at Birmingham. The importations of German bars continue, these being used for sheet making, and for purposes other than tin- plate making. Ti.N PLATY s.-Tbe shipments are in excess of the receipts with a slight decrease in the stocks. The recent reports from America do not con- firm the statement that the rebate plate business has been with held from this country, but how long this will last, it is impossible to say, as eventually there is no doubt the Americans will secure these orders, and will withdraw the re- bate. The only remedy that bae been suggested for this is that we should tax the American im- portations into thii country, and into our colonies in the same ratio as they tax our goods. There is a concensus of opinion on 'Change that here is no other method of counteracting th e injurious effect to this trade aspecially. With regard to prices of plates, there is still a bearing of the market going on, but both Liver- pool and London buyers, who still adhere the tactics of depressing quotations by stating prices at which they allege they are obtaining plates at.
