Tho iii-orchfijit by-product plants, on tho other hand, sho\v a slight inoreaso in daily output, In pa'rt thie was due to tho foot that during Oeeenvber 40 new Wilputto ovens were p u t into operation at tho plant of the Citizens Gas -Company oC Indla.napoJia.

A Uiesol-en-gined locomotive with l,200-.hors i opowor has boon tried out by the German ( railroad i ompany in tho vicinity of Stuttgart. The test, which fallowed.six years of preparation, was d-ooJared a success. (( was shown that the percentage of fCe:UvG utilization of fuel wnis more t h a n double that of the locomotives fired with coal, but because of the high price of oil and the great cost of producing Diesel engines the genera! introduction of: these locomotives in the immediate future is considered problem-atie.

A slight chock in coke production took place last wuok. indicating tho .sentiment that prevails with respect ID the deferred improvement in tho trade. This lias not yet set in hut certain tendencies forecast its Blow and gradual r e t u r n as t h e season advances. Thero is no disposition, t'j hasten developments beyond n natural growth in volume and demand, much as these conditions arc hoped will sooner or later become manifest. There was no change- in t h e operat- inc; situation, except that rather more plants t h a n a week earlier reduced thoir r u n n i n g t i m e to five and four days, Tho addition of eight ovens at a. f u r n a c e plant was the only chaag-e in the oven list which was too small to i n f l u e n c e t h e results. Tho f u r n a c e plants dropped 950 Ions from the previous week and tho mer- c h a n t s added .'!'JO tons, m a k i n g the not de roast 1 for tlio week 650 tons, which is inc'onsldorable as coko tonnages aro rated. The rrsriona'l total of 20,720 tons i,s about 2,000 tons above the weekly avera^p for tile year to dale. It ih, however, 34,i:',0 tons, or 115 per cent, less than Uie production in the corresponding week of 1920. There la current iu tho region a wll de/iued impression that before niiiny more weeks have- elapsed there will bo a material increase in the number of ovens in blast, especially by the furnaeo interests. It is said that such an audition IB in prospect and will presently take piaco. Tho estimated production of coke during (lie woek ending Saturday, .January 25, was 29,720 ronn, divided belwee-u tlio two districts as follows;: C-onn,ellsvillo, S.GOO, an increoii-e of 3,050 tons; Lower Connelleville, 21,120, a decrease of 4,200 tone, or a uet decrease of 030 tons, ae compared with a total increase oC 4,700 tons during tbo preceding woels. Tho production by interests was: Furuaco, 5,200, a lo6B of !i50 tone; merchant, 2-1,520 tons, a gain of 300 tonti, as compared witli grairw of 970 and 3,730 tons respectively during th-o week ended January IS.
