The total ship ments out of the Connellsville i -aion of coke and coal, will be materially increased. '.. It is believed in the trade, both by 'reason of actual experience and : bj reason ot the declared attitude of the authorities at "Washington, that when circumstances' arise whereby, there an issue whether a by-product or a beehive oven will ^operate, the influence of the Washington authorities .will be thrown in the scales in favor 6f the by-prodttct.plant,, aot because by-product coke looks different from .beehive coke, but' because .the government' is interested in ma-rtm output of the by-jMrodncts. Hence it is expected that the bf-product ovens will run full, unless there are very serious transportation difficulties. STRIKE IS.ATEKTED. Central Pemaa.
