Evil of Delayed Order.
At no time during thla year ba tha
, rata of production approached the ra-
quired tonnage. Tba tendency on the
part of buyers to hold off placing tbelr
order Is limiting production, ss tbe
mines csnnot store coal at tbe point of
production, snd wben tbe rush of
orders for tb winter's needs comes
next fall there Is grave danger that
the mines, with depleted labor force
; and the probability-of tesa adequate
transportation, will be unable to meet
tbe demands. Tbe result of aucb a alt
nation would be an Insufficient supply
for tbe requirement of, domestic con
sumers, public utilities and Industrial
user generally. ' "- '
. "It ts believed that requirements for
this year," reads a Survey atatement
to Fuel Administrator Garfield, -will,
be about 630.000,000 ton of bituminous
coal, of which approximately 30,000,000
ion have been need from stocks accu
mulated last year, leaving 800.OGO.000
tone to be prtxluced. Of tills WO.OOO,-
000 ton 178.000.000 ton wer produc
ed during tb first Ave months, leaving
822,000,000 ton to bo produced In th
rerostnlne. SO weeks, or sn average of
10.700.000 tons a week.
, "Thus far this year production tias
been at the rate of 8,200.000 tons a
week. In 101S production was st the
rate of 11,300,000 tons' week.;' - -
"Thla production will be difficult of ae
"complisbment, The capacity of operat
ing mines at the present time with labor
now on tbe payroll Is about 10 lower
than it was last year. This deficiency
may be made up In part or wholly If
the mine bar orders sufficient to ran
them five or els days a week unless. the,
threatened exodus of foreign-born labor
. .. Msy Bs Car Shortage.
."Present wage agreements between
operators snd miners .expire with
the proclamation of peace by the Pres
ident. A suspension of mining oper
ations while a new wage agreement Is
being negotiated would, of course, seri
ously Interfere with the production of
emil and if it should occur during tbe
fall would cause panic among buyers
and consumers of conl." '
. There Is no use in gambling upon
this or sny other contingency, fuel ad
ministration officials say. The firm or
Individual who wants to be sure of an
adequnte confc supply next winter can
be certain by buying coal now. There
la- no - other way such assurance
can be obtained.' Transportation also
promises to be a limiting factor if the
flood tide ol demand cntites at a. time
when the country' record crops are
being carried. In some districts It
would appear certnln that notwlth
atandlng the utmost endeuvore of tb
Railroad Administration and tbe util
isation -of Its experience last full, wr
shortage will be a cause limiting bltuv
mlnous coal production, and for that
reason It ts prohleruutlcal whether the
expected production of 500,000,000 ton
csn be sttalned this year.
Shortage of litbor already Is a fac-
tor that ts cutting down the output in
some coal producing sections, accord-
lng to the Survey's report. The oirn.
tors report that from-30,000 to 4U.WW
foreign-born miners expect to return to
Europe as soon as they can get paws
ports and that many have already re
turned. If continued this movement
will be capable of producing but one
result a reduction of tbe amount of
coal mined in dlstricia where the mine
labor Is largely foreign-born, and' thcr
are many such iliirk-ts. . - -
