PROSPLC 1S ARE VERY BRIGHT IN INDUSTRIAL SECTIONS OF STATE
Coal, Pig Iron. Steel, Brick, Tile, Sewer Pipe, Cast Iron Pipe, Cement, Etc., Being Inquired For
111 n. r iukuiuaa
There Is warrant for active operation
of mines, mills and factories through
out the industrial sections of the state.
This condition, according: to prospective
investigations, will continue indefi
nitely. The indications are that there
will not only he necessity for steady
operation of the industrial activities
but that where possible greater output
will have to, be brought about. In
quiries are being received as to ca
pacities in the future.
The coal demand is improving. Steam
coal is being mov%ed in quantity. Some
of the coal operators of the district
are complaining as to a railroad car
' shortage. Representatives of the gov
ernment on car loadings and also rep
resentatives of transportation com
panies assert that the shortage of cars
is not to be felt. The domestic coal
demands have not started as yet but on
the first spell of cooler weather it is
expected there will be rush orders to
the operators of mines for this class of
coal and if the car shortage really ex
ists there will be some delay.
Casual survey shows that in many
directions the retail dealers in domestic
coal have very little stock bn yards.
When the householders begin buying
from one to three and five tons of coal
at the time there will be a movement
in coal that the mining companies will
be called upon to rush stock. A car
of coal carries between 50 and 60 tons
of coal and it will take some time to
get a car fromlthe mines to the des
tination, be it in the state or adjoining
state. ,
The coal production has been up to
OSS.000 tons the week in this state.
Developments and improvements in coal
mines of Alabama during the past two
years makes it possible for a total out
put of around 500.000 tons if the coal
can be marketed. The strike in the
anthracite territory, set to begin Mon
day night at midnight, may be felt in
Alabama, though so far the extraordi
nary demand Jor steq,m coal is not
caused by any trouble elsewhere. Dur
ing the war, when there was a hard
coal shortage, Alabama coke was
shipped into the. New England states
and there is son^e belief here that the
same condition might arise this year
The Alabama coal fields have a splen
did array of labor and the call for
greater production will be responded
to quickly, it is asserted by operators.
The developments still under way are
locking towards a greater demand next
year. For instance, the Woodward
Iron company is opening a new mine
near Short Creek, which will have a
daily output of 5,000 tons of coal. This
company will have improved its by
product plant so that more coal will
be needed there and then other needs
are showing up. The Republic Iron
and Steel company will before long

\ now have Its 57-oven by-product coke
plant in operation and thf^ will re
quire a lot of coal. The Sloss-Sheffield
Steel and Iron company is to haul its
own coal and this will provide a steady
production. Other companies are mak
ing estimates of greater needs of coal
j right in the home territory. 1
The co"ke market is picking up
i strength right along and there is no
i doubt but that the need for steady op
I oration of bee-hive and by-product
} coke ovens will be noted months to
j come. Foundries, machine shops and
| other industries are requiring more
! and more coke.
Pig iron sales are being made daily
| for delivery during the remainder of
the year while the melt in the home
j territory is keeping a very steady pace.
Melters of iron in the middle west, in
I Southern Ohio, are buying a little
| southern Iron, three or four smelters
! together buying an estimate tonnage
'of around 1.800 tons lately In this terri
! tory, shipment during the next three
month!?. The largeV smelter of pig iron
in the home territory is thrf cast iron
j pressure pipe manufacturing industry
and the orders on hand and in sight
i with this industry will warrant a full
i operation of plants for an indefinite
j period. That the expectations of this
| industry are to enjoy a steady patron
j age for many months to come is evi
denced by the fact that one of the pipe
manufacturers .is building a new pipe
shop which will have a daily produc
tion of not less than 500 tons of pipe,
while another manufacturer Is adding
to its plant and a third one Is working
out plans for additions also. It is esti
mated that for at least twro and a half
years yet there will be a very active
| market for cast iron pipe and then re
| placing or improvement will be under
| taken. The soil pipe and fittings
j trade promises to show an activity
j more or less as building operations
i throughout the country. Florida has
| been a very strong customer of the
Birmingham district on many of its
products. Brick manufactured here
has been going in very large quanti
ties into the adjoining state for the
past two and three years, and there are
many car loads yet to be shipped there.
Tile, blast furnace slag, sewer pipe,
cast iron soil pipe and fittings, struc
tural and concrete steel and what not
are also being shipped into that state
in big lots. One of the largest and
most modern brick plants of the in
ausinai secuon or me stare is oemg
erected at Cordova, the clay to cone
from coal mines and the brick to be of
a light face type, as manufactured in
the East. The machinery for this im
mense brick plant has been ordered
and by the turn of the year the works
will be going. In the meantime several
large brick manufacturing plants are
turning out brick for use in Florida.
Birmingham and other sections, this
trade having been very good for feome
time and the prospects are bright for
continuation a long time to come.
The steel finishing plants of Ala
bama are busy. In many instances ca
pacity production is necessary to meet
demands. There is reiteration of the
statement that greater production of
steel will soon be a necessity, the
finishing mills having increased in
number and the tonnage being rolled
so rapidly increased that the few open
hearth furnaces built in recent yeara
are not providing all the steel that
is necessary. When the Tennesse Coal,
Iron and Railroad company starts up
its new, large steel sheet mill there
will be need for considerable more
ingots and billets. Many reports are
still to be heard as to plans of the
Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad

PIG IRON
Foundry Forge Basic
company, subsidiary of the United
Spates Steel corporation, which in
cludes additional blast furnaces, more
open hearth furnaces ,and a billet mill,
these developments having: the ob- ;
Jective of supplying addditional mills
| with steel. There are more blast fur- i
| naces on basic iron which is used In
| the manufacture of steel than on foun- ,
dry iron. The Woodward Iron com
j P&ny, an Independent iron manufac
turing: company, has three blast fur
1 furnaces on foundry and one on basic,
l the latter product going to a steel
j company in the immediate Cincinnati
| territory. The Sloss-Sheffield SteePhnd
j Iron company has five blast furnaces
; on foundry irdn and will supply a lo
j cal, smaller company with iron for
pipe making.
j The two blast furnaces in this dis*
| trict are in need of repairing and the
| work will be rushed when the blow
! is off. This is taken to mean that ex
| pectations arefcstrong for the need of
j all the iron that can be manufactured
in this district. What iron has been
accumulated during the past several
j months when the market was much
! slower than it is now is being called
into the open now for distribution and
! the prospects are that on the turn of
the year there will not be any great
j tonnage at all in the state.
The cement industry is still enjoy
! ing its unprecedented run, the demand
j being for a much greater amount than
Is being produced. The several manu
facturing plants of Portland cement
are going to capacity and what stock
| is in the warehouse is being resorted
j to. The railroads state this traffic is
worth while, many cars of the pro
duct being pulled out of the indus
trial section. There are sections of the
country which get cement from Ala
bama, which will not be interrupted by
the cold weather during the wintei
and the requirements promise to be
better this year than ever before. The
plans for the new cement plant which
is to have an output of 2,000,000 bar
rels per annum have not advanced far
enough to make full announcements
No doubt is expressed that by the
time the new plant is In operation the
demand for cement will have in
creased sufficiently to absorb the make
with ease.
The announcement that John T.
I Cochrane of the Alabama, Tennessee
and Northern railroad, now extending
from Calvert to Reform, has made ap
plication to their interstate commerce
commission for permission to build the
road from the northern terminus to
Glen Allen, on the main line of the
Frisco railroad, 52 miles, and then
from that point to Haleyville, on the
Illinois Central railroad, another 26
miles, and then later extending the
southern terminus into Mobile, will
mean purchase of steel rail and rail
road accessories which will come from
the Birmingham district if the ar
rangements- are completed to start the
construction work next year. The
Frisco railroad is also working out
plans of building its connection from
Kimbrough, in Wilcox county, to Glen
i Allen, a distance of 143 miles, which
with the Muscle Shoals, Birmingham
and Peftsaeola railroad will give the
Frisco road into Pensacola, to the
gulf and this will mean a quantity of
rail from the Birmingham district.
Other railroad development Is in sight
which will require rail and other steel
products from this state.
There are many other products bo
ing shipped from Alabama to adjoin
ing and other states. The survey of the
week shows some speeding up with
prospects of steady going indefinite
ly.

Houston County Member Sends
Out Appeal Asking For In
creased Membership
DOTHAN, ADA., Aug. 30.—Special
to The Advertfser.—Declaring that the 1
cotton association was helping to hold
up tl^e price of cotton, a letter appeal
ing to the farmers of this section Is
being broadcasted by the Houston
county farm bureau, urging the plant
ers to pool their staple with the or
ganization. The text of the letter Is as
follows:
"We have a good cotton crop In !
Houston county. We lye told that I
the South will make around 14,000.000 I
bales this year, according to govern- I
meat statistics. Every farmer will tell |
you that the cotton association has ;
helped hold up jhe price of cotton and !
that cotton is bringing much more per I
pound due to the cotton association, i
Still some are standing back and not i
giving It the support that It deserves j
arid not the support that you are. If a I
member.
"I am sure that you will be glaS to
know that the cotton association has
received a larger per cent of the cotton
crop In Houston county this year so
far than ever before. Practically every
member will tell you that he tvill be
able to pool more cotton than Be did
last year. The association In this state
has set Its goal on 123,000 bales which
We should easily get In this county.
"We know that every member will
do his part to get this and we want to
ask you to talk to your neighbor who
Is not a member and get him to mar- j
ket his cotton orderly with you and !
not dump It. He is letting the spec
ulator run it down in price as long as j
the farmer who makes It has it In his :
possession. This is being done right
now. I know that you are doing best I
so ask the man on the outside to do
his best for himself and you."
