BETTER USE OF COAL PRODUCTS SOLITTION OF FUEJ»ROBLEM S»ys a Tvel Expert of the Muse«m In MORE COKE IS NEEDED Tor VM At a SiMttito fw -lithn- eite; Kooa tor 6raU Chuges^ 1* Ou Iniutrial Sjsitm for tie Utili zatto* *1 Cod an* Br-Frodicts. At the present moment, when the fuel situation forces itself upon the attention of every householder in the country, any discussion ot the coal problem that goes into the causes at the bottom of the present unstable and unsatisfactory state ol aSairs should receive a careful and serious hearing. Especially so, if at the same time this discussion is constructive and points the way to a national development of the past coal resources of the Nation so that they will not only meet ad qoately the demands of a growing industrial development but also will be firm and strong enough to stand the shock of untoward events It is evident that their present development falls now the test of world emergency Such a discussion is to b« found In a short bulletin by Chester G Gilbert, entitled "Coal Products An Object Lesson in Resource Administration Just published by the United States National Museum The author at the outset points out the magnitude of the coal resources of the United States and the utter dependency of national welfare upon their proper development. Yt with more coal than ig found in anv other country, or indeed on any other ccu- tinent. this coxmtry ham long been dependent upon foreign source* for such a«cntial product* made from coal as dyestuffs, fixed nitrogen, and many important drugs, and Is today, with the first pinch of war itreu uncertain whether the fuel needs of the American home can be met even during the coming months. With characterist c lack ot analysts, the American public has Beror laced these acortages phases ot a single problem but has am become alarmed at the dye short- ace, then excited over the nitrogen dearth. Bad !· map shivering in aa- tjcipctioo of a meagre fuel supply To explain the present coal shortage by transportation congestion or labor difficulties Is to offer a superficial cause. Tkese dilemmas, of course, are the concrete means through which the trertle makes itaelf felt, but back of them stretches a far-reaching failure to work out a proper development for America I greatest resource The tremble it not that insufficient coal is nixed ud transported but that the fimnt ovtaat is inadequately used- its fall commodity value ix cot obtained. In general, oar coal could be node to go a third further in meeting the Nabom's seeds. The domestic fuel stringency i» only one angle of the coal problem, but a very distressing angle for the average person.' The trouble here is the tact that the demand pat upon anthracite, or hard eosJ, -which is practically limited la occurrence to a few counties in Pennsylvania, is out of all proportion to the size of the deposits The home* at the country must begin to turn aside from the luxurious and mostly inthracite and look more to our vast bltmunou* resource*, which ari widely distributed, favorably situattd and can not so readily be tied up by concerted strikes or so easily held down by traffic congestion. But bituminous coal Is dirty, and its widespread utilization as such would be a long step lock ward, retarding progress In civic betterment as well as involving a 30 per cent waste in commodity bulk This waste, however, which appears In the gaise of smoke, is in reality convertible into gas, tar, ammonia benzol, and an endless nummer ol other by-products, such as dyes medicines, and explosives It is therefore possible by proper.shaping of economic policy to remove the disproportionate drain on the limited supply ol anthracite, to turn the wasted third part of bituminous coal into useful products, to eliminate smoke from tfur cities, and to so distribute the sources of domestic fuel supply as to alleviate, if not entirely solve, the labor anil transportation perplexities of the present situation These desirable results are already in course of natural development, but progress is disastrously slow, impeded as it is by lack of proper stimulus and excess or misdirected pressure. The advance so far has been solely in the metallurgical field. For converting iron ores into metallic iron, L substance known as coke is needed This is made artificially from coal by driving off its volatile portion its smoke so to speak Almost a seventh of our coal Is made Into coke so great jvre the demands of the iron industry, but two-thirds of this coke Is produced without regard to saving the valu- ible products driven off. during its, manufacture Therefore we face the alarming conclusion that only about 4 per cent of the coal mined in the I mited States yields its full value to eociPty Progress In coal utilization depends fundamentally upon the production of more coke. At present the situation H limited by the needs ot the iron industry. The quantity and type of coke thus far produced has been determined by its metallurgical use Sporadic attempts to apply metallurgical coke to household purposes have met with failure and placed coke in an unfavorable light. Coke must be made of such kind as to be suitable for domestic uw This_can be done, and the accomplishment is an urgent necessity Domestic coke, in reality, will be artificial anthracite There is room in our industrial sys- t m for a ereatly changed utilization' of coal in short, for coal to be used in the form of anthracite artificial anthracite (domestic coke and steam- engine cake), metallurgical coke (as for illuminating and power purposes, benzol for automobile engines, and at the same time made to yield a sufficiency of nitrogen dyestuffs, explosives, and other [coal-product chemicals There is preient need for all these products The problem is to make the necessary readjustments The solution to the whole coal problem, in short, does not consist of cutting down industrial activities to meet present coal output, nor in circumscribing the scale of economic life to fit present misdirection of coal resources but lies in working toward an industrial situation that will both permit and demand a widespread treatment of bituminous coal so as to yield on the one hand a smokeless fuel an artificial anthracite i»o to speak, suitable alike for the home and the factory MI PLEASANT MAKES READY TO INSTALL NEW ALARM SYSTEM Contract for Telephones is Awarded to Tri-State Company.

The favorable weather of the past few days has made it possible foi Uie railroads of the cuke legion to accomplish really wonaeiful things in the direction of clearing up the accumulations of loaded cars of coal and cuke which have been standing on sidngs and in } ards for the past six weeks or longer As noted in The Weekly Courier's cake trade review 1,000 cars ha\e been .u« ~.~~.moved out of the West Brownsville below Long's, Diamond and Howaro yards alone Including cars moved at streets Mam and Hitchman streets, other points on the Pennsylvania railroad, and on the Baltimore Oliio and Lake Ene roads, it is estimated that close to 4 000 cars have been sent toward their destinations within the past week The Monongahela railway and the Coal Lick branch ot the Pennsylvania are completely cleared for the first time for several months Including cars coming from the main stem and the Georges creek region, between 1 800 and 2 000 loaded cars per day are going eastward over the Baltimore Ohio, and an almost equal number of empties are being brought back to the several mining regions The Western Maryland has shared in the general improvement which now places all the roads of the region in better position than they have been at any time since the advent of ·winter The casement means a better car supply for both coke and coal plants, a condition which, next to a larger supplv of men, is all that has been needed to increase the output ot both coke and coal . MUST CUT ICE That is Only 3Kea» *f Fnrentfag Shortage 5ext Sunnier. Storage of natural Ice in buildings now used for Winer storage is being advocated as a means of preventing a serious shortage of that product next summer, owing to the demand for ammonia for war purposes. Unlesi the natural supply IB harvested and stored the shortage is Iflcely to be at least 50 per cent About Connellsville, in the mountain sections, the usual supply has been cut but that is for borne use only and there will be none for sale Unless some means can bo made for putting away large quantities of natural" ice during the remainder of the winter the situation next summer will be a new one in the history of the artificial industry ^ U.B.
