FKc TINPLATE TRADE. I AMERICA BENEFITING LARGELY 11 BY BRITISH PROHIBITION. The review of the ti np la te trade for Pit, just issued by Messrs. Sim and Joventry, London and Liverpool, states hat the trado tiiids itself without a pre- sident, and the makers have been for souths struggling against adversity, such ks they have never before had to en- counter. Two-thirds of the tinpla te make (speak- (Ig roughly) is exported, and Nw-.ry largely '0 The countries now engaged in war, both elips and enemies. With regard to vhe utter, the export has, of course, been ctirely cut oft, and those works which ILid themselves out for the German trade jave had to face changed conditions and lerelop a new connection. The outbreak of hostilities, brought dis- letrous results. Things were improving, kowever, in October, so far as exports rere concerned, hut in November another lifficulty arose through the Government vnhargo on öhipment of tinplates to Hol- find and Scandinavia, and large quanti- ses of tinplates have been absolutely leld up in this country. Fear is expressed {hat the practical prohibition of export rill play into the hands of the American, manufacturer at the expense of British trade. As to the possible ultimate results. the report states, that When the menace or Prussian militarism is finally driven j iv. ay, there is no doubt that the trade of Europe, and in fact of the whole world; will rest on a foundation of much greater jecurity, taking for granted, of course, that the final settlement will be such as to render impossible the substitution in Europe on a permanent basis oi half-a- iozen armed camps in the place of one. that is a danger which must be kept Kmstantlv in view. Many years will be required to finally repair the havoc Mused by such a war, but gradually a itate of affairs will emerge which should involve settled and increased trade. Our great gain, however, is likely to resul t from a settlement of the eternal Balkan question, the consequent restora- tion of confidence, and the development of the trade of the various countriss on an inpreeedented scale. Closer commercial relations with Francs, Russia. Belgium, Me British Protectorate in Egypt, and whatever will be substituted for Turkish rule in Asia and in Europe, may be ex- acted to produce good trade results. Competition is indicated from America, Australia, Norway and Italy, but on the whole, it would seem fair that after the. Inevitable hard times through which the Jinplate trade will have to make its way. ft will emerge into a period of general j prosperity, on a much more reliable; foundation." The price cf Welsh sheet, birs was Et Ils. 3d. at the beginning of the year. I &nd continued unchanged of the first Jew-n months. After the outbreak of Irir, the supply of Continental bars being -ut cff, ,iiid America being off the market, the Welsh price was put up to t:) 2s. 6d. at the end of August, but two months later was reduced to £ t 15s., th-) tinplate demand being so poor. Bars were firmer towards the end of the year. The total imports during the year were •, 278.115 tons, as compared with 345,503 in 1913, 275,347 in 1312, and 322,513 in 1911. The stock of tinplates, terneplates, and black plates at Swansea on Dec. 31 was: 1909. 112,541 boxes and bundles; 1910, 182.010; 1911. 132.769; 1912, 338,951; 1913, 336,981; 1914, 294,520.
