Accorduij to all accquats obtained from, railroad sources the railroads fcave mad* excellent progress in tha past fortnight in clearing up congestion. Today two weeks ago the mild weather was inaugurated, following a temperature ot Below zero on Tuesday February 5 Car supplies ar« not the first result ol better railroad operations when there has been congestion, as the first effort is, naturally ,to tnoTe loaded cars on to destination and the return of empties follows in due course. In the past tea days many blast furnaces have been embarassed by the plethora of coke. Shipments CCHTvB IKAUIt.
