FRIDAT, A±?fUi: 19, 1918." THE DAH.Y COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. ' PAGE "FIVE. TRANSPORTATION 1 TROUBLES CAUSE OF TONNAGE DECREASE Of the United Stet.es StceJ Corporation During the Past Year. BIGGEST DROP IN COKE Combined Output, of Beehive mid liy. Product Coke S 1'er Cent Less; Strel; Ingot 3, IVhfle Tig Jron Fell O f f j : -V early 2,000,000 Tons From 1816. All the United States Steel Corpor- i ,,-ation tonnages for 1917. says the! 'American Metal Market, showed de-i creases from ISxfi, with fie exceptions ; '-. 'that tiktrc was a sUgai increase in | the amount of coal mined for gas and ; ' steam purposes against a large de-' crease in coal mined '.'or. coking). There, was. a slight increase in the production c* open-hearth, ingota with a large decrease in Bessemer ' ingots, and there was a slight in. crease in shipments of finished rolled steel to the domestic marltet, with decreases both in the output of such products and in the shipments Tor { export. | The corporation's generally reduced output harks back to the transportation .difficulties of the year, which j were^ particularly.,, accentuated in the ; . closing weeks of the y£a:'. and relal- ; T i n g particularly fo lh"e ^lovement of] " * coke. While ' th6re-~.was soioe tiiffi- " " culty in shipping finished steel, such ~ · difficulties were encountered chiefly · · after the close of 1917. That .it was · difficulty in moving coke rather than j difficulty in moving steel that caused the trouble is shown clearly by an- , alysis of the figures. Coke produc-1 tion, beehive and by-product com' · bined, decreased S percent, while pig · iron decreased 11 percent, the differ.* .'ence being presumably that with ir- . . regular coke supplies the coke con- ' sumption per ton ofcpig iron produced increased slightly. There could not have been enough stocJdnj; of coke, if indeed there was any, to account Cor the difference. Coming dcfwti io ingots, there was a decrease of 3 percent, suggesting . . that pig iron stocks wer* absorbed. ~._ . and this it was well known 'at the .?'. time actually Sid occur. The pToduc- ,.' tion of finished rolled steel for sale .* . decreased 3 percent, the same as ' ingots, but to make the stowing still clearer, while the output decreased 517,831 tons, tie actual shipments decreased only 171,985 tons, this net decrease being made up of an in. crease of 121,615 tons and a decrease 1 of 293.598 tons. T-, . An interesting comparison is to be ;" "inada between the United States Steel ^'·Corporation and the independents in '·' the matter of pig iron and steel ingot · ' . production. As to totals for the country, it will be recalled that pig iron production decreased from 39,434,737 tons to 38,647597 tons, or by .' 800.000 tons, -whereas if we are to '· lollour the partial statistics ot ingot ·'. production thus far gathered there ·"was an increase in ingots from 41.400,000 tons to 42,200,000 tons, or 800(000 tons. The divergence is at- tribntanle to the consumption in 1917 of pig iron stocks, though ;:ome other influences may . havo had a slight bearing. . - The United States Steel Corporation's pig iron production decreased nearly 2.000,000 tons. BO that the blast furnace industry apart from the Steel Corporation increased' 1,200;000. tons. The 'statistics of merchant fur-, nace output showed" th'at'.'. tie mer-' chant furnaces inao'e about' 400,000 tons more in 1017 than" in 1916. The remainder of the . increase, 800,000 tons, is chargeable, except for one or two minor influences, to the independent 'steel producers, in their own blast furnaces. ."With.-a decrease of 625,000 tons in the corporation's- make of ingots, and apparently an increase of 800,000 tons in the, total .'.make, it would appear that^tfae^ndependents increiused their' - ingot/output aJJtrat 1.400,000 tons. ' To do this;' th*y"nad, apparently, 800,0*00 tons.~ioor.e.of".their own pig iron output,' plus' any., stocks, they may ..have had oil.'Iiand, plus .any additional iron they 'may have secured from merchant ·furnaces.- It is doubtful, how.- ever. whether they had all three sources of increased supply, for in that case-;they, should'have been able to make srinvmore ingots, unless in-, deed the supply .of scrap jiiatcrially decreased. 'That,'" by "the way;, is a 1 'distinct possibility.. .." " - Subscribes $1,000,800. The Briar Hiil Steel compiny subscribed for ?1,000,000 worth of Liberty Bonds. A lost Doors Open 8.3O a. m.
