Compared with tho corresponding week in 1894, there v/as an increased shipment of coal at Cardiff during last week of 20.000 tons, andat Penarth 16,000 tons, while the shipment at Barry under the comparison have over 20,000 tons, SWANSEA The quotation. EXCHANGE, Tuesday. The quotations in pig iron have done l?ttle more than maintain their position during the week, and show a slight improvement, notwith. standing that the stoeks are rapidly increasing. The h0111e consumption is being, so far, fairly maintained, but with 3J sUg-ht failing off in th ¡;hipment. whieh "pill continue n the seaaon of the vear comes nearer to a close. All the works in finished iron and steel are engaged upon the execution and delivery of old contracts, but there are no fresh opera- tions to be reported, and there appears to be a lull in pressing further work. The ship- ments of tin-plates show an improvement, and are in excess of the receipts from, works. | There were several buyers in attendance to-day, but the business done is reported' to be of a limited character, as the prices offered still continue to be below any possible cost, and when the existing -contracts are completed several of the works contemplate stopping, unlew they can get something near the advance necessary to "over the increase in the prices of the rav material. Copper seems to have slightly recovered, while blok tin is weaker. The -.1 trade ,Pp?.ri to be extremely quiet, and the demand for manufacturing coal has been very much decreased. pl' Iron.—Glasgow warrants, 46, 8d, ca*H buyers; -,Igl, -N.- 3 38s, prompt, other numbers in proportion; hematite war- rants, 4-7s 7 £ d, for mixed numbers, f.o.b.
