The secretary of agriculture of Bra-
ill recently presented a lengthy me­
morial to the president of the republic
explaining tho necessity of encourag­
ing the coal and steel Industries, which
has resulted In the publication of two
decrees of the federal government.
The secretary's report states that
until there are at least ten coal mines
In active operation In the country the
effect of this Industry will not be felt
In the conservation of the wood sup­
ply. which Is now being rapidly con­
sumed to meet the needs o f the rail­
ways and of domestic Industries. The
steel Industry Is so largely dependent
upon suitable fuel that. In the secre­
tary's opinion. It should also receive
the attention o f the Brazilian govern­
ment. The director of the geological
survey of the Brazilian government
states that by a process of washing
metallurgical coke may I k * obtained
from Brazilian coal, and that this Is
already being accomplished In the
stale of Santa Catharina.
The secretary points out that the
present lack o f sufficient domestic coal
of suitable quality should not Interfere
with the establishment of a steel In­
dustry, which could temporarily use
wood, and that for more than 300 years
Sweden was obliged to depend upon
this kind of fuel, lie al»*i says that In
the K n.ted States some •HYUkX) tons of
pig Iron are produced annually by the
use of iharcoal as a fuel.— Commerce
