WELSH MAKERS. I WATCHING. REDUCTION OF U.S.A. TIN- I PLATE TARIFF.- Figures are proving that, with the reduc- tion of the American tinplate tariff from 5s. 7id. to 2s. per cwt., considerably more ship- ments are taking place from Wales' across the Atlantic. But the rosiest anticipations, however, do not suggest that Wales will recapture her lost trade with the United States, for mak- ers there have already reduced their prices, and in the leading manufacturing oeritlea Wales could not hope to successfully com- pete under the present conditions. It is far from these manufacturing centros th-at Welsh hopes lie, for the increased railway freights allow of competition on more even terms. The N markets are being carefully watched by Welsh makers, and while some orders have already been booked in this direction there is every prospect of far greater business fol- lowing. DISTINCTLY HOPEFUL. I The rebate trade returns are distinctly hopeful, official figures showing that where- as in 1912 the United States imported from this country for their rebate trade hardly more than 2,000 tons, the figures of 1913, covering some months of the new tariff, fihow the total to be over 21,000 tons. Welsh tinplate makers are reticent to ex- press themselves regarding the future; but one thing is certain, our trade with America is more hopeful now than it has been for toany years past.
