Railroad conditions may have -- unproved a. great deal in the past ' -week, but on account of th« light shipments of coke in the jast few rtteeks -- tbere nas not been enough enoroute to jnake a great deal of difference wTra. it does start moving to destination more rapidly Both producers and consumers of coke are greatly encouraged by the particularly favorable woather of the past Treeic, weather altogether better thaTi there had been any reason to expect, and lively hopes are entertained that the actnal "nHn ement ot cote ·will greatly increase.
