(Résumé) Si l'on compare la production totale de minerai de fer
canadien pour l'année 1688 et 1689, on voit que (citation) "si la
production s'est accrue, la valeur totale du minerai s'est
abaissée. Cela s'explique par le fait que la production de 1889
ne comprend aucun des riches minerais de la province d'Ontario et
que quelques-uns des producteurs ont coté leurs produits moins
haut que l'année dernière"

(Citation) "The Canadian Manufacturer places the value of the pig
iron production of 1893-4 at $965,968.77, and when it is
considered that almost nine-tenths of this has been paid out for
labor to Canadian workmen, the value of the industry will perhaps
9 better appreciated. A continued encouragement of the industry
will mean that Canadian pig iron will yet form a base for many
articles of finished iron and steel not now produced in this
country. It has been well said that the production of pig iron is
one of the best tests of a country's metallurgical greatness.
This has been particularly true of Great Britain and the United
States. The statistics referred to above evidence the fact that
Canada is on the "right track". The Dominion may rank low as yet
in the scale of iron producing countnes, but she is on record
along with such nations as Great Britain, the United States,
Germany, France, Sweden, Russia, Austria and Spam, and the
Canadian percentage of the world's output, though small, is
steadily increasing, and must increase if the industry is
encouraged as the circumstances of the case demand".

(Citation) "Very little Scotch iron came to Canada, the price
being so much above that of similar brands of American pig.
"Summerlee" brought an average price in currency of 518.75 ex
wharf Montreal, or equal to about $20.75 delivered at Western
Canadian points. American and Canadian iron vas sold at fully
4.00 per ton below these figures, so that the Scotch iron masters
were quite unable to compete. The home trade was the salvation of
the British iron producers in 1896. Large shipbuilding orders,
and the prospect of Government contracts for warships, served to
stimulate matters considerably dunng the year, but while the
general tone remained favorable at the close of the year, the
constantly increasing shipments of American pig iron and products
thereof to the English market, and the ever decreasing export
trade in iron from the British market itself, form a combination of
circomstances that are not promising".

(Citation) "The enormous development in the export trade in
British coal has increased the cost of ail iron products to such
an extent, that there has been a marked advance in all classes of
iron and steel since the beginning of 1900, and it is evident
that this will continue during the present scarcity of coal. The
war in South Africa is almost directly the cause of this advance
in the price of coal, and the scarcity of shipping will also further
increase the cost of material delivered on this side, owing to
the expected advance in freights during the coming season of
direct navigation".

(Citation) "The falling off in the shipments of Scotch pig iron
to Canada, which has been a marked feature of the trade during
thé past few years, was completely changed in 1899. In Scotch pig
iron alone the shipments to British North America exceeded 10,000
tons, against about 2,000 tons in 1898. This large increase is
due to the fact that American furnaces were almost unable to
supply the local demand, and the same can be said of Canadian
furnaces. It is evident from the present condition of the market
that a considerable quantity of Scotch iron will corne to Canada
during the first half of 1900 at least, as Scotch prices, although
high, are still lower than American figures for delivery in the
Eastern part of Canada.

(Citation) "The year 1899 has passed into the annals of the iron
trade of the world as a remarkable one. The values of iron,
steel, and all the products thereof enhanced by from fifty to
eighty per cent over the values of the previous year, great
carcity of ore and fuel everywhere in the producing countries, a
gate of consumption unparalleled in the history of trade, and a
production of pig metal never before equalled in any one year".

(Citation) "The demand for iron is as active as ever, and
consumption is going on at such a rate that with limited vessel
freighting capacity from the Upper Lakes, it is be doubtful
whether more than sufficient ore for actual requirements can be
trought down to the Eastern furnaces during the coming year. It
3 therefore, safe to say, that prices will remain fairly high
throughout 1900".

(Citation) "Chrome. This year's shipment (1697) has been 2,340
gross tons, mainly to the United States, and we have still in
hand 2,000 tons; about 60 men being employed. Our ore is mostly
high grade, but I consider that with concentrating plants, we
could use our low grade ore and the refuse of the mines, and
considerably increase our shipments. This industry is in its
infancy, but nevertheless, with only hand working, we have taken
out, since 1894, over 10,000 tons, representing an approximate
value of $140,000 of which 6,163 tons have been shipped. I refer
to a pamphlet I am just publishing on the subject".

métaux, qui s'est produite au commencement de l'année et s'est
