Luty in the Aaierican eMtal Market, some at the oreas are teint dried out and the manufacture ot coke will probably begin »bortlj, tbouib a recent formal nil All mentioned May for compietloa. In the annual report of the United States Steel CorjjoraUon it uras Stated that this plant would very probably be placed in operation in. May or June A» work has proceeded approximately tienljr on the 610 ovens It is probable that the laatfrtll be in operation very ahortly after the first. The new plant, with 640 ovens, wosrid- be the largest bj-produqt coke plant In the country were it not that the enlarfenient of the Gary plant from 560 to TOO ovens is nearly completed. It l the intention later, however, to double the Clairton plant, making it 1 280 ovens, and as no such plant is contemplated elsewhere Uie probability" Is that eventually, and for rears, the Clair*on plant will be the largest in the norld The present plant, with 640 ovens Is designed to carbonize 4100,000 net tons of coal a year, producing 2,740 000 net tons of furnace coke besides 245,000 tons of coke breeze and various important by-profhicts The output could fall somewhat Short of this estimate and still amount to SO 000 tons of coke a week, o that the importance can be realized. As a'prac tical standard of comparison, it may be observed that- In the first nine weeks ot thla year Connellville coke shipment:, as ihown by The Courier 9 statistics, averaged 267,000 tons per week, and the supply was very far in._ dwd below requirements of the var- ~ Jon* furnaces, corporation and independent, tributary to the region Then for three weeks the shipments aver' aged 324 000 tons a week, and the furnaces found themselves almost almost fully supplied, the mere having been 67 000 tons a week. The new plant will supply the major portion of the requirement* ol the Edgar Thompson, Carrie and Duquesne furnaces of the Carnegie Steel company, nearby, and accessible over the Union railroad ot the company "When the plant is doubled these furnace* will be entirely supplied, and there will be a surplus, estimated at a million tons a year, to be distributed to Carnegie furnaces accessible by a short water haul, the two Lucy and three Isabella on the the Allegheny liver and Edith and Neville on the Ohio river The addition of this coke-making capacity Is not In Itself especially important at this time, when there is so much idle capacity In the Con- nellsrille region The importance at this time comes from the fact that no transportation on toe regular rail roads will be required, as all the coal will be brought by water and the coke will mov* on the interplant road At the Palmer, Dilworth, Maiwell, Gates, Lamber*, Edenborn, Lcckrone, Ronco and Bridgeport mines, in the Connellsvllle region, the facilities have been Improved in the past year, to obtain a greater output and to provide for shipping it by water, while RalpI mine is being reopened. In 1»17 the corporation spent Jl.%94 711 for improving these mines, this being apart from the 17,941,229 spent during the year at Clairton on the byproduct plant proper While the plant is commonly spoken of as belonging to the Carnegie Steel company the work is conducted under a separate corporate name, that of the Clairton By-product Coke company. In 1917 there were acquired, for the water service of the plant, one steamer for towing, and 16 steel and eight wooden barges, while additional facilities are being provided The United States Steel Corporation's coke production, both by product and beehive, decreased by 1,440,2*7 tons from 1916 to 1917, the decrease being due wholly to inadequacy of transportation, and the output of pig iron decreased by a still larger amount, because with irregular working of furnaces the coke consumption per ton of pig iron increased. The Clairton plant will have a coke capacity about double the 1917 *eflcit in coke The Phonograph Triumph EASY HONE TREATMENT REDUCES SWOLLEN VEINS Tk*t Y«U» ( am Be Bedu*4 to »r»al mnj at a Triflhic tost.
