12 U m i WORLD LOOKING TO AMERICA FOR GOAL R. C. Martens Says Demand After War Will Be for 20 to 40 Million Tom. .VIEWS OF LORD RHONDDA It C. M.rtn", Ttc-pr5l1nt of It Vu-tfflR Co, Inc., who rcnttjr fme to thin country with Ui 1rt f building up American trad with Ruiwla. to a RpremntetlTa of Titte Hut rtrlay tha vIbwb of Lord RhoiMlitft, president of tha company and head of ona of tha tarfMt combinations of onlllerlea !n Oio werM, on tha world coal situation which will reault from tha war. Theaa vlnwn lead, from tha American Btnt of yiew, to ona Interestlnr and Important eoncbaaton that Immediately follow! mr tha war America must ba tha chief auppller of a demand for brtween 10.008.000 and 40,(00,000 tons of coal and that how much of hla aiport our. neiia h will tm abla to retain depends larfely on the wlUtnmeas and ability of her producara and ahlppera to atudy and meet tha eondltlona of foreign countries, Tna total exports of bituminous coal from tha United Stalea tn 1918 were 14,41,- 9R tons. ... . ... . Mr. Martens further discussed the tre menrtnsis wnota to be observe! both among producers and consumers of coal In this country, tna consumer, no mm, h.vtn.. In most Instances Riven atinar. antly no atudy to the grade of coal whirl) would he most economical In their own particular work, and produce rs, with no demand for careful eroding, having been neglectful In their preparation and los ing much that -would be conserved In Kngland. It was this lack of attention which would hare to be remedied, he said, to meet successfully a foreign mar kar- Atvnrrtlnr to Ixinl Tlhondda's opinion. he said, the first demand of the world upon the close of the war and the re leasing of shipping, with the consequent disappearance of excesblve freight rates, would be for coal. This would be true not only of belligerent but of other countries that are now suffering from a shortage In nearly every part of the world. In this event the Kngllsh coal man sees no country except the United States In a position to meet the demand. "Enaland." Mr. Martens eaplalned. "the world's chief coal exporter, with a total of 73.000.000 tons sent out In 1913. will be tremendously ctlppled. Her miner have enlisted and her production Is cut far down. When the war Is over she cannot resume her normal place In a moment. Thousands of her miners have given up underground work to be come skilled soldiers, and the narrowest estimate of the time which will be nec essary for then) to reaccustom them selves to the old work and place pro duction on a basis of full capacity Is from four to six months. "Meanwhile the coal mines of Franco and Belgium haw been In the hands of the German. The tlrst thing that will be needed to reopen them will be fuel for the railroads and fuel for In dustries. In Russia the situation Is sim ilar. The mines of l'oland have been Wrgaly shut down and the Imports from (Ireat Hrltaln have, been almost cut oft except for the absolute necessities. "Germany has been enabled to be a factor In the world coal market throuslt Government subsidizing of her operators. It Is doubtful If ehe will be rich enough after the war to continue such a cus tom. Italy Is notoriously short, and all neutral countries which are not self supplying are burning wood and olt ami every eott of fuel that won never used before ' vc d the payment of prohibi tive o.ean Igr rates. The situa tion Ir tli i 'rtlt rn countries, where. ""aufj-'tu.-Ts usually lay In a four months . in.'ily of fuel against the win ter month. Is an example. This reserve must aggregate nlmost 0,000,000 tons. It has been exhausted and there can bo no more brought In until the war Is over. "To meet this condition the United States coal fields must furnish the sup ply. Tre Is a feeling abroad that American al Is Inferior to the coal of other coua5. That Is not so. With the exception of the Cardiff coal, used entirely by the Urltlah and other foreign navies. American coal Is as capable. If carefully graded and chosen, of ier formlng all requirements as any other. "American producers have n great deal to learn. I have been surprised In visiting this country to see alongside of the greatest efficiency In certain forms of management, and certainly the most wonderful system for handling the product In the, world, the greatest in efficiency and waste. Thero heems to be little particular and well Informed demand as compared with other coun tries, and It Is this demand which the United Watea must meet." IT.

As this Is Inter-company business It will not affect the report of the unfilled ton nage of the United Klittes Pteel Corpo- ration, but as It Mill take up mill and shop capacity It will bo Included In the monthly report of the Hrldge Build ers Boclety. The Indication Is that March business taken by the fabricating shops will probably bo between 163,000 and 17r,,000 tons, a total which haa been exceeded only two or three times In the history of tho Industry, The plsnt of the National Tube Com pany to be built nt Cury will htivo an annual capacity! of Rno.oon; tons or pes semer steel Ingots nnd 000,000 tons an nually of tubular goods.

Thus far tho March contracts taken by locomotive builders call for between fiO.OOO and S3.000 tons of steel. The rail mills have taken additional contracts for standard nnd light sections, mainly for 1917 shipment, which, with orders that will piobably bo cloied to day, will mako the March lottil fully 1,000.00(1 tuns, excluslvo of tho prosis-c-tlve Pennsylvania Kallrnad contracts. Tho Missouri Pacific and tho Iron Moun tain railroads haw virtually closed for approximately 30,000 tons of standard sections and additional orders are ex pected mjoii from the, Chesapeake and Ohio. Norfolk and Western and Seaboard Air I.ln. Included In the contracts Just closed Is a round tonnage for export, most of which probably will be rolled during the last quarter i'f this year. Car builders havo tak'en additional orders for about t.nnu curs, Including 7."n tank cars to bn built by tho Amer ican Car ami Foundry Coiupiny for the fnlnti Tank l.lno ami exclusive of the ;.i)00 cars to lie built by the Pennsyl vania Hallro.ul at Its Atttaina shops.
