Forty-three thousand acres of toul
lands In Indiana county have changed
hands. Some mines arc belnff otiencd
and all of tins coal will be used for
coke, that will equal the ConuellHVlllo
legion. Tho by-products In the manu
facture ot aorno staples arc Betting to
be so valuable that they often brine
In move revenue to the manufacturer
than the staple he wants. Thin is ex
pected In this case, and, Indeed, If It
-.vera not for a new process In the
manufacture of coke these acres of
coal would probably have remained for
many years In the state nature made
Coke I an absolute lwefsliy In the
inantifartmu of Iron. The quality of
ihf coke Is of great Importance- also.
For years the eoal hat been dumped
into lire old-fanhloned bee-hlvc ovfin,

Jium-a the fire is citictirhed with water
find the coke drawn Irom the ovens.
J'rom the day th; first coke was
bur-nod thcio has been no improvement
in this proees. Krom each oven is
pouring a column of smoke and Hume
toiuctlnicft 20 feet lilfilr. The air Is
poisoned by noxious Rasses and all

Men have looked upon the hlKh

tho waste, and then foi gotten the mat

wits to woik. He nt last solved the

The Tnlted Coke and Out company
was organized with William I.. 121
kins as president .associated with a
number of eastern capitalists, and they
have control of the Inventions of Hoff
man. In 1S97 the first plant was es
tablished at Otto, Allegheny countv
with 120 ovens, and a second 100 aie
contemplated. The New England Oas
nnd Coke company at Everett. Mass.,
has 400 ovens, the Dominion (las und
"oke company at Sydney, N. S., has
400 ovens, and tho Hamilton. Otto
'oke company at Hamilton. O., CO
Under contract und now in course of
erection Is tho largest coke plant In
tho world at Ituffalo, N. Y. This is
owned by the Lackawanna Iron and
Steel company of this city, and in Buf
falo they are building C64 ovens. At
Ivebanon the company is also building
At the Otto plant coke Is the desired
product, and everything else by-product,
from six to seven tons oC coal
Is the charge per own. Each ton of
coal In addition to the coke, which is
from 73 to S7 per cent., according to
the quality of the coal, produces from
1.03 to 7.50 per cent, or tar, .08 to 1.33
per cent, of sulphate of ammonia, and
r.000 feet of surplus gas. The plant
turns out from 3,000 to 40,000 barrels
of tur a year, and worth from J2 to
J2.50 a barrel. From the tar again it.
is possible to derive about 100 more
products, ninny of thorn worth their
weight In gold. All or the coke goes
to tho furnaces at Lebanon.
Some of the plants mentioned are
run for the gas as a product and all
else as by-products. The plant at Ev
erett, Mass., supplies from six to seven
million cubic feet of gas a day to the
city of Boston-. At Hamilton, 0 the
gas la furnished at about 50 cents for
1.000 feet. It can be doire for this
amount at any plant.
The plants of the I.ackawannn com
pany when In full operation will re
quire about 3,700 tons of coal a day.
To supply the ovens It beeamci neces
sary to have the coal, so the company
recently purchased In Indiana county
IS.000 acres of co.il lands. To reach
the lands the Pensylvanla company
has built an eight-mil extension of
tho Elbensburg branch lrom Orcsson.
On this property are three three-foot
veins of good coking coal. There are
several openinss at Vinton, Some of
the coal Is reached by shafts about
100 feet deep, and at other openings
Mopes will be used. All mining will
bo done by electricity. In fact every
thing about the mines n lit be done

The Tobacco Trust proposes to re

U is predicted that olsars now on the
market at two for a quarter can be

in the direction of this evolution went
