United States Fuel Administrator. Order of the United States Fuel Administrator of July 31, 1918, Effective 7 a. m., Aug.1,

WASHINGTON, D. C., July 31, 1918.

H. A. GARFIELD,

United States Fuel Administrator. Letter from the Director of State Distribution to State Fuel Administrators, dated Aug. 1, 1918, Relative to the Distribution Program for Coke.

WASHINGTON, D. C., August 1, 1918. To All State Fuel Administrators:

There are three general classifications of coke:
(a) Beehive oven coke, made in beehive ovens.
(b) By-product coke, made in by-product coke ovens.

(c) Gas-house coke, or gas coke, made in coal-gas retorts, found principally in public utilities gas plants.

All three classes of coke will be distributed under the general direction of the Coke Bureau at Washington, in accordance with the following plan:

(1) The requirements of war industries and water gas manufacturing plants will be supervised by the Coke Bureau at Washington or the District Coke Representatives, and State Fuel Administrators will have no responsibility in connection with supplying coke to such plants. In the allocation of such orders to gas works that manufacture gas coke, the Coke Bureau and District Coke Representatives will confine same to such gas works as are equipped to load railroad cars and have been accustomed to make rail shipments in the past. It is the policy of the Coke Bureau to confine the use of industrial coke to those preferred industries which require coke for uses that cannot be served by other obtainable fuels. This policy will reduce to a minimum the railroad transportation of gas coke and should result in such coke being generally consumed in the vicinity where produced.

(2) The distribution of gas coke, after the above industrial requirements have been taken care of, shall be under the control of the State Fuel Administrators and their County and Local Administrators.

(3) The distribution of beehive and by-product coke to industries and the allotment thereof to states for domestic and other uses will be controlled by the Coke Bureau. Any coke available for domestic use from by-product plants will be distributed pro rata to those dealers who have handled their product prior to the war.

(4) All shippers of coke for domestic use have been instructed to send a weekly report (if possible not later than Monday for the preceding week) to the State Fuel Administrator in the State to which shipments are made. To this report will be added an estimate of the probable shipments during the following week, with the names and locations of the dealers to whom the shipments are expected to be made.

(5) All requests for coke shipments to war industries in carload lots should be referred to the Coke Bureau at Washington. Yours very truly,

UNITED STATES FUEL ADMINISTRATION,

Director, State Distribution.
