In connection with the large increase that is being made in the number of by-prodv.ct coke ovens at furnaces, and several merchant installations in process oi*""construction. it is Interesting to note what the Washington correspondent of the Cleveland Daily Iron Trade has to say relative to a plan ot the government to stimulate the growth of the by-product industry. "The authentically reported plan of j the War Department,'' says this authority, "to-assist financially in the construction of possibly 1,500 by-product coke ovens primarily to increase its supply of tuluol, benzol and other · materials essential in munitions raan- ' ufacturing will, when the ovens are completed, severely, tax the mining and transportation facilities of the country for the production of byproduct coal, according to views held by olfiffcials here. This is said to be the only main drawback to increased development of the by-product Industry. "WhlJe tbe actual number of ovens to be 'built and the total sum to be spent by the government in this field cannot be ascertained, it is believed most, of the added to plants already operating in the middle west for the more eveu national distribution of coke, tuluol . and other products. It is known that new ovens are to be added to the plant of the LaCtede Gas Light company, at St. Louis, where there is an overdemand for gas, but'the number of ovens has not yet been made public. "In the -decision to add to tbo LaClede plant Is seen a policy, of adding new ovens only to those plants now in operation. The LaClertc company can materially add to its ovens without extensive additions to its by-product recovery plan. Th'is is believed generally true of most such plants, which will provide for ample additions at less expense with a great saving in time and with considerable conservation of labor and materials. "Another phase of the extension of the by-product cnke industry is the matter of reducing the hauling distance from ovens to furnace, foundry or domestic consumer. This is true also of the matter of getting coal to j the ovens .and has. boon an important j factor in the present railroad fuel situation. II the Railroad Administration or thje President acts for what'is considered the best national policy, even though it may add to the expense of railroad operation, the carriers will be forced to use steam coal taken front the mines nearest their own lines. This has a striking example in the case of railroads which go into the Connellsville regions for $2.15 coal and haul it more than 200 tnilee up into the Clearfleld district where coal sells for .$3.05. The Fuel Administration has struck a snag there because the Railroad Administration is holding out for the 60 cents aud is tying up an excellent grade of coking coal," Sets TITO Bays on Streets.
