Pig   iron   statistics   for  April   show  that  industry  is  rapidly  adjusting  itself to the shrinkage in iron consumption.    No less than  54  furnaces blew  out last month, leaving 212 active as  May came in, against 372 on Sept.  1  last year when the peak was reached.  In April the output was 2,478,218 gross  tons,   or   82,607   tons   a   day,   against  3,090,243    tons   for    the  31     days  of  March or\()9,685 tons a day.   Capacity  active May 1 was 75,860 tons a day for  212 furnaces, against 93,1.05 tons April  1.    Production at the opening of this  month, estimating charcoal  iron,  was  at  the  rate  of 28,000,00  tons  a  year.  This compares with an actual output  of 39,052,000 tons in 1918.    Not since  May, 19J5, when there were the first  signs of a war demand for American  steel,   has   pig   iron   production   been  at so low a rate as today.
