" · "Weekly ~' average -Csfcipping three weeks) ten weefcs ended -May 11, 1,125,000 tons;- 'eq'uivale'at -annual rate, 5S.5W,000 tons. There is an increase . from the low ·· period, to- the high period ot 30 per · cent. As to the relation bet-wean coke production and pig iron production, there is the curious fact that from 1S16 to 1917 coke production Increased' 2,000,000 ions while pig iron production decreased 800,000' tons. The only ex- ; pianation of this curious fact is that Ju 1D17 the coke produtrjon, in point ot tons, was quite ineffective, partly because some of the cofce was poor lu q^aiity^flaT-ins^becn -held in .ovens too long awaiting cars, and partly because furnaces worked Irregularly, consequently with an abnormally hi'Bh coke consumption per ton of iron, . - . The -rate of coke production, March 4 to May .11. 58^00,000 tons a year, may be compared witli 1316 conditions, when the production of coke wus 54,533,5S5 tons ani the production of pig iron 39,400,000 tons, and with 1S17, when the production of coke was 56,600,009 tons and the production of pig iron 1:3,600,000 teas. TJsing 1916 as a standard, tie coke supply of late has boon sufficient, if f the blast furnaces used the same proportion of the total output as formerly, to make 10 per eea: more pig iron, or 42,000.000 tons a yar. Tbe actual production during the period was less, strongly suggesting the furnaces were not working well but were using too much coke per tor; ot pig iron. In the ten weeks ended ilay 11, the production of beehive coke averaged 65-1,000 tons a week, or at the rate of 34,000,000 tons a year, and the production of by-product coSe 471.COO tons a week, or 24,500,000 tons a year, making 1,125,000 tons a week or 58,500,000 tons a year' for the two descriptions. The- estimated otttpu'- in 1916 was 34.- · 000,000 tons of beehive and 22,600,000 tons of- by-product. Despite thfe appearances of late that the beehive ovens -were not producing nearly as much cote as formerly; the fact is that record production of beehive coke was only 3S.46-i.224 tons, in 1916, .that passing by 300,000 tons the pre- vions record, made in 1907. "The production of by-product coke continues to gain, thus: 1897, 261.912 tons; 1907, '5.607399 .tons; 1917, 22,600,000 tons; tea weeks ended May 11, 24300,000 tons. ' The estimated capacity during e ten weeks was about 27,500,000 teas. This estimate, ·which appears to be merely the Geological Survey's trtal. of the capacities of individual by-product plants, as reported by thuir owners, may be compared with an estmate of 30,000,000 tons, made In the form that is ' common in the industry,- of taking the expectations entertained for plants vj-hen they- were designed, i · "WtuLteyer tie capacity, however, : there is to be added to the pertorm- ·anco in the ten weeks .an allowance : of some 4,000,000 tons' a year as the ·prospective output of new plants, the "American ' Steel fe Wire Company ''plant at- Cleveland, which has jnst r made, a start, at.d the Loraiu, Clair" ton and Ironton plants, which should '-" be, in. full opera 1 ' 01 ! within say three ^months.
