The hindrincee to the shipment of coke, and th» complaints of consum-- ers. both of which have continued ·with a singular persistence throughout the p^st year or longer, have been the subject of more thoughtful study and Investigation by both railroad men and coke operators than any other problem which has jointly engaged the attention of these two Interests. The study given to this problem has been ·with a view to devising an' effective remedy of some of the conditions which have held the coke region down to a partial production 'at a period when it should -have been constantly at the manmum. That th'e methods of car distibution. Ions in vogue, and suitable to conditions as they have heretofore prevailed, should be changed, is the conclusion a number of experienced operators' have reached in their study of the situation. "A. great deal of perhaps just criticism," says the statement of an operator who has considered the situation from every angle, "of tb« quality of fur nace coke now being shipped to blast furnaces is directly due to the system of. car rating of coke plants, in effect at the direction of the Interstate Commerce Commission. This rule is that: 'Ratings of coke oven plants are based on the number of THE AECADE. ovens in blast.' At first thonghtShis would seem to be just and economically correct, bat the actual working Bow". Stone's Twentieth Century out of the ruling, during a' period of Show". Stone's Twentieth Century car shortage is not only very injurious to the quality of the coke but ei- ccedingly wasteful of coal and entails known artists are with the company heavy unnecessary expenses to the operators. "The war committee of Connellsville and Mrs. Yernon Castle's Tour Step" show. Beatrice coke operators has recently recommended that the 'car rating of coke plants be based on the number of ovens available for service and the actual producing capacity of\he mines serving snch ovens, instead " of the number of ovens actually In blast "It is now necessary for all the ovras at a plant to have fire in them 1 R.

Francis X. Bushman and ' Beverly Bayne are seen in the leading roles substituted for tlw connt. The picture is not a patriotic subject, the title being used to designate a typical American, the role portrayed by Francis X. Bushman. Much, of the comedy is supplied 'by Adella Barker, as Mrs. Maaloy-Smjihe, who wishes to forget her lowly origin and William H. It Is a bright breezy story and one of; Tooker, as the elder Spanlding, who ' persists in" reminding her of it at the the most entertaining in which Mr. Bushman and Miss Bayne have appeared recently. The production is an adaptation by June ^lathis of a story by Shannon Fl-fe and has' been capaily directed by Charles J. G. Brabin. The scenes of tie fox hunt on Long Island, with a number of riders taking the junure over fences and other obstacles are particularly good.

This is a great waste Df good coal uselessly burned to keep up the heat, which under proper rating rules could be sent to the fumacea js arst class coke. "Ex^ra machines must be kept Jn commission; enough men on hand to take care ff all the ovens; longer tarry hauls operated and many other unnecessary expenses are incurred by ·he operatdrs, solely that they may receive their full percentage of cars. "\ natural answer to these difficulties is that each producer* of coke should voluntarily shut down the percentage of his ovens which are not iccessary. This sounds good but is practically impossible. Ever}'; fellow .vould be edging in a few ovens to get in extra car and the whole scheme A-ouid fail. This can be easily 'rerae- lied by a simple change in the rating ·ule. "There has been a lot of foolishness niblished to the effect that the coke ipcrators have restricted production tecause the price of spot coke was ·educed to $6. To anyone familiar vith conditions in the region during he last few months, this is highly ·idiculous. Operators have lost the ·espect ot their families and friends n their efforts to get cars. They vatch each other's plants like hawks. fho car distributors are on the rack 14 hours a day and they lose all their lair the first week they are at it.
