Coke Shipments Cleared As Mills Gain Speed; Reduced Production Because of- Steel Strike Continues. Producters' Position Strengthened. . SrEciiL TEr.EoBAii to The Gazbttb Times. CONNELLSVILLE, PA., Oct. 9 The Courier today says: "Satisfactory as was the condition of the coke trade at the conclusion of the first 10 days of the steel strike, the ushering in of the third week of the struggle finds the position of the coke producers to have gained additional strength. Production has been reduced to such point that output is being more nearly absorbed by current demand; the tracks have been cleared of standing coke; les3 stock is being laid down on the yards; the softening of the spot market, which began to develop a week or 10 days ago, has been halted; coal continues to move in good volume, even if it has been largely diverted from by-product coko production to steam making purposes; hence, considering the situation in its larger aspects as related to the steel strike, it shows a wholesome and steady improvement. "Estimated production of coke for the week ending Saturday, October 4, was 157,600 tons, contributed by the two districts in the following proportions: Connellsville, 80,380, a decrease of 26,308 tons; Lower Connellsville, 77,220, a decrease of 2,214 tons, or a total decrease of 28,520 tons, as compared with a total decrease of 72.6S1 tons during the week ended September 27. "The market as a whole is thus quotable as follows: Furnace, J3 75Q 4 00; foundry, 5 50 6 25." VICKERMAN ELECTED BIBLE CLASSES' HEAD Bellevue Man, Temperance Leader.
