These figures were announced In a report by the tinned States geological "survey and represent the value of metals exclusive of gold, i silver, platinum, Iron and steel, known technically "secondary metals," re, covered from scrap metal, sweepings, skimmings and

The exact value for last year of these metals placed by the survey at and that for 1913 at 572,786,027 or a decrease of $15.746,321. These figures, however, represent less than one half the extent of the metal trade of the country, jis stated. The inquiry did not cover 1 the of old iron and uteel which is estainiated to amount to millions of dollars, and concerned only lead, zinc. copper, aluminum, tin and antimony. The term "secondary metals" as applied to those In this fash- Ion, the ey explains, does not mean they are inferior quality, but Is used to distinguish this class from the "pilnaary" meUls are de rived from ore.

Waste Used. These "secondary metals" recovered can be- used In or in part and fnost foundarics employ them. The of the metal waste is contributed ty the manufacturing and railway centers. Thus when trade and transportation are dull the production of metal declines. The business depression generally in the countrv in 1914 is said to account for the drop In thte value of the scrap heap tor that year.

Most of the' refining and smt-ltlng of drosses and scrap metals In the United States, more than per cent is done In the territory east of the St. Louis and north Qhio river. Secondary copper, including 1 that in brass produced in 1914 totaled 127,882 tons, more than 22 per cent of primary copper smelted In this coun-' try from domestic ores. The secondary lead recovered to 61,062 ions or more than 11 per cent of tlie primary rellned lead produced during the year. A total of 71, 642 tons of secondary Bine, or more than 20 per cent of the production of primary zinc, recovered during 1914, Secondary tin recoveries were 12,447 tons valued at As no domestic tin ore was smelted in the tJnlted States during the yenr this output Is viewed by the government experts as of special Importance.

The secondary tlh recovered was more than 20 per cent of the metal imported during the year. Kome tin concentrates were exported from Nome, Alaaka, In 1814.
