Rochester, Pa., Jan. 17 - We have been fortunate thus far down at the H. C. Fry plant in regard to fuel, as we have had a good supply to date. The company is using its own gas from its own wells, and the blow shops have not lost any time for the want of fuel. But the press shops have been working short time on account of No. 1 furnace being idle.

Nine pots were let down yesterday and the other nine will be let down today, so they will start in full on the 22nd, according to information I have received.

With best wishes I remain. - Optim
