The flrs-. HTC batteries were built almost as a «»it, and the present; program is to ha*e the whole of the. five in operation br about Septemberl. or 840 ovens. The-remainder of the plant. comprising five batteries contracted for long ago, and'an eleventhL batterv- contracted for a few weeks ago, are expected to be completed by aboat the beginning of neJrt_yoar. At rated capacity of 12?4 tons per oven th* total of 1,40k oven* would have an estimated output of 123,600 tons a week, and it la bettered that, in actual prac- tlc* considerably more than 100,000 toaa a week can be produced, or approximately 6,000,000 tons per year on a full-Urn* schedule with all oveni running.

Th* gas will be piped to tie Carnegie Steel company's Dnqnesne, Homestead and. Clairton works and will replace a large amount of fuel now obtained from other sources. The coke, which is sufficient to serve 18 .b!aat .furnaces of 500 tons capacity each, will be used at the sane plant shipment, being.made over the Union railroad owned by' the Carnegie" Steel Coal for the Clairton plant win be shipped/ by river from the Palmer.

ROME, June 29.-- Dr. Maffeo Pan- tantaleoni, .who, is considered an authority on systems of government. sees great danger for European nations in ' the war time tendency toward government control of railways. He says thalf.after the war the United States will shake off such "parasitic ideas."' In an interview with the Associated Frees, Dr. Fan- taleoni said: "Government ownership ot railways is only -one of the many afflictions sure to be imposed upon this poor old Europe after the. war. 'With the . war the 1 government -has become almighty with us. The government now do«s .everything and after, the war its encroachments will be appalling and bring us near to ruin. "The United States isirnn on different lined, it was founded on .. other principles, and while it may be harassed after. the^war by the bogles of government control, it will shake them off. The 'country is too young and strong. Parasitic government control ideas attacking it will be no more than lice on a big, healthy dog. "If I bad" never before beeu convinced of the futility of government control, this war would certainly have - convinced- me. . t am . now sure that the less government a nation has the better it is for the prosperity of Its people. .A .government is always. robbed, always too late in what it does, is always betrayed by its em- ployes. . · · : "The war waste in Italy has been about eight billion lire.'.

"One of ' the p argujnent« advanced in favor of 'government;' ownership is that thereby a nation gets · a steady class ..of -.employes-' who.-:: pay debts, raise. fainiiies^live modestly, and do their work for relatively small pay.
