The iy)nth of June hung up two new records for the American cop. per Industry one a low and the other a high record and both con. tributlng to the stability of the whole copper situation, r The .surplus stock of copper at the refineries in this country on June 30 dropped to a new low point of 68.S09 tons. TMs is 27,500 tons under the stock five monttu ago or on Jan. 31. Never before during the years that th American bureau of metal st:tls. ties has beea responsible for collect.' ing and tabulating the statistics of copper the world over has the unde-livered supply of copper got down to such a low point. TWO NEW RECORDS. Contributing to this result was t'.ie new high record of shipments in .Tune to domaslc manufacturers U,43'. tons. American exports to foreign countries also continued on a very large scale Mid Jn June totaled 57,007! tons. To'al shipments 'for the uenrii then fore wete 138,503 tons, compar-ing with a rfinery output for the same period of 131,021 tons. In other words e'Jpnnnts to American and foreign consignees exceeded refinery output by 7,409 tons th amount by which the refinery stock was reduced during the p.'ist month. Not only Is the statistical position of the metal in this country on the eoundest basis for many years, but the same is truejtbrord as at all im- - poitant European points the same condition prevails receding sup-plies and expanding consumption. Improved domestic condition: in the electrioal industry is reflected in the quarterly report of the General Electric company: Orders received by the General Electric company for the three months ending June SO amounted to $90,431,957, as compared with $78,105,247 for the correspond, ing quarter of 1927, an increase of 16 per cent For th flrst six months f ending June 30, orders received amounted to $170,357,797. compared with $155,655,828 for the first six months of last year, an increase of 9 per cent. ZINC STRONGER. Statistically zinc is in a little bet. tor position. Stocks of zincs as re-ported by the Amercan Zinc institute 4, dropped during the month of June from 45,225 tons to 44,468. The sign!, ficant feature of the Zinc institute report was that the metal was 'Mold 'but not delivered'' dropped from 16,. 713 tons ct the end of May to 11,687 " ' tons, which shows the lack of orders placed in advance during the past month and 'emphasizes the "buyers' strike" which is existing. Production of zinc in the United States totaled S0',823 tons in June aq-ln-st 53,422 In May and 53,493 tons in April. LEAD PRICE DECLINES. The "reason for the decline In the lead price was th the price had dropped so far In London that the me-tal could be bought on that side and shipped here and sold in competition "w ith the domestic product so that "it was necessary to drop the price to protect the local market. There Is nothing showing in the lead statistics which indicates a price ch. nse in one direction or the other. The lead production figure for June showed eome Increase over May. Refined production was 70,788 tons in June as against 69,308 tons in May. antlmonial was 3,247 tons as against 3,131 tons; crude was 74,097 tons as against 72,681 tons as against 72 681 tons in May. . Not large increases, . "but not a movement in what has been oonsidered the right direction, cur-tailment Stocks of refined and antlmonial, United tates and Mexico, also lncreas- - d slightfy, from 54,363 tons at end of "May to 55,341 tons at end of June, but still smaller .than the stocks at end of y April, which were 57,153 tons. The Australian production In June Tell off slightly, being 13,306 tons In June as against 14,561 tons In May. Foreign advices report that a good ttiany mines in Australia are finding It difficult to produce at present pricas and have closed, further de. Treases being expected. Preliminary meetings are being held In formation of the lead Industries as-- 4--' sociation. Plans are. going satis, factorily, but it Is not probable final steps will be taken before thi9 fall. The organization is to gather statis-tical and other information pertain, ing to lead and will be similar to the Copper Institute, except that it will include fabricators as weU as pro-ducers. The organization will probab-ly include practically all producers of lead in the United States, Mexico and Canada and the buk of manufacturer) of lead products in this country. THE FORUM EDITOR THE FORUM: Now that the Road Commission iu threatening to build the concrete ro A into Bingham and have actually stall-ed to prepare the detours, we avo so pleased in the anticipation of the joy of the canyon drive that we may for-get other much needed improvements which, are lrnpoitanPiAu the conven-ience and sftfety of the public. One or two of these improvement might be mentioned at this time. For Instance, suppose a movement be .started to properly mark the Bingham highway, go those who wish to do so may conveniently find their way to our town. The people of Blnghrni should see to it that at each fork of the road from State street Jo Bing-ham Canyon, adequate signs and di-rections should be placed so thrw not familiar with the road would have no difficulty in making the trip. Re-cently the rOads have been provided with turn, or curve signs which are very necessary and rdd much to the safety of the motorist. Another thing we would like to see is the installation of a lighting sys-tem for the highway from Redwood road to Bingham. Most al! r.i in thoroughfares throughout the coun-try are lighted we see no reason why the Bingham highway should be an exception. Prrt of thla road, espe-cially that portion composed of "To-pek-or Black Top, has several curves and is exceptionally hr.rd to see at night. Several fatal accldeuta have occurred on this road rnd from the standpoint of public safety this improvement is worth while. MOTORIST. about 2000 words, a long message for a nickel. Even at that, the Scots may go Into conference on wajys and means to avoid running over tn ounce on their letters, because additional ounces, under the new rate, will require ten cents additional postage. It is under, stood that a trick to be known a3 the "Scotch Double" will be brought up for consideration. It will consist simply of writing two air mail letters in place of a single letter wMch would weigh more than one ounce. The two letters, eachweighing 1 ounce or less, will cost only ten cents, whereas one letter weighing more than 1 ounce, will require 15 eenta postage. Increased poundage of Air Mail ex. pected to result from the new 5 cent rate will require the addition of .1 fleet of new mail planes on the San Francisco and Oakland to Chicrgo route, W. O. Herron, vice-presid- in charge ot traffic for Being Air Trans-port, Inc., announced. A series of special mall planes, powered with Pratt and Whitney "Hornet' motors and designed to cruise at 115 miles per hour, are now under construction at the Boeing Air-plane Company's plant in Seattle. New Boeing-buil- t Air Mp.ll, exores3 and passenger planes were recentiv placed on the Pacific Air Transport route. A totl of 30 Boeing planes, each with a capacity of 1600 pounds, are now operating on the two lines. A nickel for postrge on Air Mall letters weighing 1 ounce or less, only 3 cents more than ordinary postage, will be within the reach of practically rll business and social corresDond-ents- , Mr. Herron believes, and It Is expected that the volume of mail will increase rapidly. Ten cents postage for each addi. tlpnal ounce after the first ounce will be required, but few letters recah the 1 ounce limit, it is contended.
