When   the  armistice  was  signed   in j  November   we   had   over   half   a   mil-  ANYOX—Fire which started at one  of the converters here Sunday spread  under the force of a northeast gale  to. the smelter and tlie ore bins and  tracks intervening causing a ■■ 'lcs^,  it is believed, of approximately $50,-  000.  lion   men   under   arms   and    perhaps i  twice that number in  war industries.  Today our factory whistles are blowing   noisy   salutes   to    the   returning  heroes—but   the   same   whistles   have  no   welcome   for   thousands   who   are  vainly   seeking   employment.     If   the  ■ war. had   gone   on   we   would   have  raised tens, perhaps hundreds of millions   in   bonds. and   taxes   this   year  for   works   of   destruction—and   the  country would have continued  industrially prosperous. •  Now that the fighting is over, shall  the nation  whose  soldiers  performed  Or shall we plan an unprecedented  j program of public  works,   boldly con-  cieved and promptly executed-—a program   by which  our  national,  provin-  j cial, and municipal governments shall  I provide    temporary    employment    for  ja'l    whom    industry   and   agriculture  cannot  otherwise  absorb—a   program  v\hich shall create not works of destruction,    but    permanent    assets    to  promote   our  happiness -and   prosperity for all time to come?  THE METAL MARKET  Enough articles were written during the war forecasting the future of  the metal market to make a .string  across the continent. These predictions were all of an optimistic nature  and the opinion was almost universal  that   the  great   period   of  reconstruc-  r - ——\  tion  following  the  war  would  absorb  all the metal in sight and there would  be   no   falling   off  in   price,   and   that  the  mines  would   be  able   to  contiue  under  high   pressure  as  in   the   past:  The   war   has   ended   and   before   the  nations   have   had   time   to  even   consider  the   question   of  rebuilding   the  price of -copper and lead has dropped  to  such   an  extent  that many  of  our  largest and best equipped mines have  been  forced  to shut down,  and  many  others   are   planning   to   follow   their  example.    While this is disappointing  it   is   not   discouraging.     It   is   inevitable that there should be a period of  pausing  between   the   two   periods   of  destruction   and   construction.     When  he   latter   is   once   more   fully   under  way  there will  be  a  demand   for  the  fullest  output  of  all  our  mines.  . Hanbury & Co.
