ConiellHTille Operators Indications, and the progress of events, point very clearly to a-change In the., car rating system for coke i plants. The railroads serving the | Connellsville region are understood to J be engaged in preparing tariffs with a i view 10 changing the rating system in 'accordance with the recommendation i made some weeks ago by the war com- i msttee uf the coke opera-tors. This recommendation was that the car rating of coke plants-he-based on the number at ovens available for service and the actual producing capacity ot the mines serving h-c'a ovens, instead of on the number ot ovens actually, or nominally, in blast, as has long been the rule. Acting upon .this suggestion the railroads have taken the initial steps which will be followed by filing the new tariffs with the Interstate Commerce Commission. If approved by that body the tariffs will probably be made immediately effective, in which case ; a comparatively short time should elapse .until the old order of car distribution will he done away wit!£ ·'······.'." " ," The delects of the present system, .which;have long-been recognized, have become ail, the more^noUceable since the stress of the past -yearhas created wholly .new conditions in.the region. Theses defects were very, .clearly pointed but by 'an: experienced, operator in The Courier.'.'some ."..Treeks ". ago and nitlibut-'exception thi: trade: agrees with him.'that- the"..Sew. system "is simply applying common sense' to the business o£ distributing cars." : " CREAM FOR CATARRH OPEKfrUP NOSTRILS Tefli Bow To Get!
