(Résumé) Aux forges du Saint-Maurice en 1808, l'observateur note
que les travailleurs (citation) "make about 1000 stoves per
annum; the small single stoves sell for 3 L. and the larger sort
for 6 L. each. The double stoves, which have an oven at the top,
are sold for 10 or 12 L. according to the size. Potash kettles
sell from 20 to 25 L. each".
(Citation) "Fresh veins of ore are daily discovered, land
purchased at a trifling price of the people in whose land it is
found. Messrs. Munro and Bell had incurred great expense in
collecting ore and improving the works at the expiration of their
lease in 1806, and would have given 1 200 L. per annum, it is
said, rather than it should hâve gone into other hands.
(Résume) La même année, soit en 1808 l'observateur note que
(citation): "The present proprietors of the works, at the
commencement of their taking them, in order to push the sale of
their bar iron, which was at that time inconsiderable, purchased
a large stock of very inferior British iron, and knowing that the
Habitants regarded the price more than the quality, they sold it
to them for a trifle less than the Three-Rivers iron (. .)".

(Résumé) La St Maurice Works a produit du fer en grande quantité,
(citation) "Records of the production for 1746, for example, showed
that the amount made in that year exceeded L 1,000,000. The
seiling price, expressed in the monetary terras of New France, was
twenty-five to thirty beaver skins per 100 pounds. In some years, as many as
200 stoves were manufactured, along with great quantities of pots
and other cast ware. The same works also produced bar iron".

(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 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.
