English Wool manufacturers Corn it will the remembered How during Tho past season the cry for More Competition in Tho manufacture of Ico arose in this City. Parties interested in the production of this Supply were satisfied of the fact that there would be no Ico famine last year As the Crystal and san Antonio factories could turn out at least sixty tons Dally. Nothing however was said of a possible monopoly which really put in its appearance Bosforo Tho season was Ono half Over. Tho san Antonio factory with its Lino Largo machinery found that it would he cheaper to Purchase Tho ice for its customers from Tho Crystal than manufacture it in such limited quantities As its sales called for. It was not Long and the Crystal company gobbled up Tho san Antonio Ico factory thus having a Mono ply of Tho Ico Trade in this City. Tho breweries which Are Able to furnish a very handsome Quantity of Tho product kept their onto Tho pie last sum mor leaving the Crystal to Lix it own Price and size of Ico. The Only opposition Camo from or. Leo.

Up to Date however they have announced that there shall to no repetition of such an affair As that of to lev years since when Trio brow cries gave Ico to their customers by Tho ton. They also say that they will neither take a dish in the retail Trade of the article. This loaves to live factories Tho entire City Trado private Tamllos saloons markets and Sterns excepting Tho two thousand military population of Tia City who draw their Ico Supply from Tho government Ico factory and Tho Largo Quantity consume cd by Trio guests and attaches of the Monger hotel which institution also manufactures its own Ico. Tho Supply then of the City which is left to Tho live factories is pretty acc Rotoly stated to to. Seventy tons which amount cuu to easily produced by any two of Tho live factories now established. Tho Crystal alone Tho management has a capacity of 40 tons and its Annex Tho Sanantonio has a capacity of 25 tons giving that company a total capacity of tons. The Reliance factory Lias nov in operation a 15 ton machine and is putting in another of 20 tons giving it a capably of 35 tons. The Southern factory which is not Yot in operation but will to in the course of it week or so has in place two 30 ton machines giving that company a capacity of tons. Thus according to Tho statement of the various companies the plants Whan running at their fullest capacity turn out Ico. Or with Tho dulling Plant of four tons gives a total of 164 Ico per Day for Tho five factories which have undertaken to Supply san Antonio with the article. An expert in the business who is Well posted As to the situation in this City in regard to Tho Ico production and con sumption positively states that the fac tories will limit their output to very close to to tons a Day of which seventy tons go to Homo Consumers leaving a surplus of seventy tons for Tho outside Market.
