CAR SUPPLY STILL SHORT Of the Coke Heron's Thr«e Keif By-Prwhict Plants leaping Completion; 056 Ovens Expected to Be Ju Full Operation br Angust Special 10 The "Weekly Courier. PTrrSBQRG, May 3.--oke supplies at blast furnaces have measurably Improved since list report, although j the improvement is only slight. The' Republic Iron Steel company has blown in its. Hs^lten stack No, 1, at Youngsiown, alter having sought coke for the stscfc lor ahont three weeks. Last Monday the Carnegie Steel company blew ia Use idle stack at the Isabella plant, also the stack at Niles, giving it 51 furnaces in blast out of 59. against 49 stacks active for several -weeks past. Many of the blast furnaces are still operating at galled rates, not having enough coke tor full i operation. j Estimates are thai on the whole pig j iron production ha,-; been at a slightly j greater rate ia the central west ia { April than iu March, but the increase j has beea a very moderate one. As to | supplies of Ccmnellsvitte coke, they have averaged scarcely any better in April than irf March, and several furnace interests complain that their i ^^~^:^^=^=^^-^ -^-^.--.^^^j^^ supplies have been less.

The fluctuation in car supply, from 100 per cent to 20 per cent, and' back strain, or from day to tiny, continues to he the only persistent feature of the situation. This condition has ceased to excite comment among- the protluc- when It T*'U1 cease, while It tends more und more to produce keen disappointment at the prospect of early or permanent Improvement. Last Week's shipment records to PiUfrtjursr and Western destination?* not being available, definite information as to tonnagre cannot be given except to the ISast where the shipments totaled -15,991) tens. · a gain of 1,026 tons. River shipments increased 7.120 tons to n. total of 17,620 lone. Gauged by car supply, -which averaged about the same as during the previous week, the shipments of last week probably did not exceed 305.000, or 310,000 tons. This week began with a 100 per cent car supply, dropping to 70 on Tuesday and 50 yesterday with no certainty that the SaUer will be continued. The furnace situation is slig-)it- ly improved more through heavier production of by-product coke than increased aupplies ot beehive. The prospect oC Q5S new hy- product OTCHH comins into blast by Auffufrt is attracting attention, particularly as to the eA'e^t upon the ConneUsvii.e rogrion. These ovens, when running full, will produce 75,0(10 tons a week, which ; will be a factor oC no mean importance if the existing car s i t u a t i o n nndertrocs no change for the better meantime. trouble in the past fortnight than even in January or February. A part of the improvement in coke ly greater rate of production than March while OQ account of January and Febr\iary accumulations of steel supplies at blast, furnaces, and prob- i having been shipped largely in Marcb ably lie major pan of the improvement, has been due to heavier output by the by-product ovens, whWh for some *ime past have been receiving better supplies of coal, resulting In operations at DO per cent of capacity or better." Coke operators are decidedly disap- there are cages oC mills producing more steel in April than in March, hut of shipping less. While tbe 15 per coot unemployed capacity represents an unfortunate situation, the 85 per cent is a tremendous tonnage, easily exceeding t h c j total a m o u n t of steel made by all the pointed at the continued difficulty the! bc m gcrem5 during ihe first" twelve-1 railroads are experiei.cing In bringing; the coke car supplies in the CcmnellE- ville region up to the requirements. Supplies are reported better In the pas; few 'days, but these reports for month of tbe war, and possibly equall- ing their combined production at thef present time. The contribution of even 50 per cent of this output to prosecuting the -war, on one side, is tie past, with better supplies for a few days, and then very poor supplies bringing the average down as low as ever. · That the railroads are probably do- Ing their best by the coke operators Is suggested by the fart that supplies of coal cars in the Pittsburg district, as well as at the ConnellavUie plants that load coal, have been very poor short periods ar* not given much at- , hereforc a verj .

What they are not based on Is actual fact.

Coke continues to be ;v rarity in the open market, offerings being quite exceptional, in the case of both furnace and foundry. The market remains quotable at the government limits, as follows: Furnace J6.00 the authorities are working out a system whereby steel for so-called commercial purposes will be brought tinder regulation.

Both the Clairton plant of tbe Carnegie Steel company, with 640 oreus, and the Lorain* plant ot the National Tube company, with. 208 ovens, are expected to begin making' coke about the end of June, to attain full production probably In August. The three plants will probably make over 75,000 tons of coke a week. To what extent the Connellsvllle coke output will be reduced in this connection is problematical. There are mine facilities for producing additional coal but on account of labor scarcity, and the necessity of transporting the Cleveland and Loraia by-product coal, there will doubtless be some reduction in the beehive coa! output.
