LENGTH OF PRICE PERIOD mbject of Some Speculation Since the TVor Industries Board Extended -- Steel Prices Until Jalj 1; Clairton By-Product Plant early Ready. Special to The Weekly Courier. PITTSBUKG, April 3.--Rather keen JisttppoinUnent is fell ia both coke tad blast furnace circles at the poor ·ar. supplies of th£ past 30 days. The oke movement had seen such a sub- ·tantial improv em-en t, ia the first hree weeks in March, over tbe con- Mlons of January and February, that i serfse of security was ft It that traffic Conditions would continue to improve There has not be-eu a day of really fair car supplies since Monday of test week. Offeringb of coke in U e open market, which were just beginning to make,a partially respectable, appcar- ·Ince, are now a rarity again, Even foundry coke, which is more often een in the market than furnace coke, 5 found only very occasionally, and .ovever restricted the area in which he railroads permit it t j be shipptd, J buyer is readily fouaL In oiher wrds. buyers who need foundry coke a-c omnipresent. As a rule wherever ere is a foundr that is a found:: tat wants colic. It is doubtful whether all the coke I'at is hems' shipped ib go'ag out on regular contracts. Whilj the total of extracts made probablj exceeas the ttal of coke shipper!, i: is hardly like- 1; that each, operator .ias coatractb eual to his shipments, but there is fsqueat. lending of cok« by one fur- nee to auotner, and private arrange- ceats are sometimes made for the tinsfer of coke, so that the coke does nt appear in tu« open market. Once mrkei offering, in any quantity, it co, be assumed that tbe s'luation is aileat easy. There is no doubt that a! transactions made are at the set pices. Some remark, has be--n occasioned lithe past vreek by the fact that m siting iron and sieel jr'ces for the stond quarter of the -ear the \Var liusrtries Board m-clud d coke m its stiemenit. It will be r*called tiiat in ccjiection with the oripaal iron and a**l prfce fixing last. September coke ws one of the materials upon which foducers submitted prices to the ^ar Industries Board and when iron jtd gteel prices were than announced, fter review by the P.esiden-t, coke ·as included. There was some con- Poversy as to whether ihe coke price rmg at that ume represented a \ol- tntary agreement, as iho pig iron and ·teel price firing was considered, or ·epresenied. action by the President inder aumorlty of the Lever act. The jomrnon opintion was that thc latter vfam the case, for the simple reason hat tlie coXe price was really fixed yy the President, -while the Lever act, smjxwerins the President 10 fix the prree oi coke, did not specify how or through what medium, he should make his decision public. Later, when tbe Fuel Administration got into vorklng order, it formally announced -eke pnces. Now the War Industries r:oard announces them again. As long as' there is no change there is no issue, bu.c saoulii the tVar Industries Board make any important reduction in pig iron in, the future Ii COKK T2LADE SUjHMAUY. i-- - Taking: tbfe Gg-ureii oC last ·week's record of cjake s h i p m e n t s 01 t h e i r face a very large g-ain is made to appear, the a^gro^ate, by- river acd rail. beiii£ 383,703 tons, as against 333,537 tons of tile previous week.
