Section 5.-Zone D and Modifications.

Order of the United States Fuel Administrator of March 27, 1918, Effective April 1,

1918, Establishing Bituminous Coal Zone D,Regulating the Distribution and Apportionment of Bituminous Coal from Operations in Indiana.

WASHINGTON, D. C., March 27, 1918. It appearing to the United States Fuel Administrator that it is essential to the national security and defense, the successful prosecution of the war, and the support and maintenance of the army and navy, that the greatest possible supply of bitumi.

92082-19 -16

nous coal should be produced in the United States; that such production, even though all other conditions necessary therefor are present and capable of employment, is, because of the locations of the mines and the nature of the commodity, limited in part by the capacity of existing transportation facilities for the movement of the coal from points of production to points of delivery and consumption; that the amount of production, notwithstanding a continuance of the other present favorable conditions therefor, can be immediately increased by means of the greater utilization of coal cars, locomotives and other railroad facilities; and that among such means are the elimination of unnecessarily long hauls and of avoidable cross hauls of loaded and empty coal cars, and the provision of the necessary supply of such coal for each consuming section of the country from the one or more coal fields nearest thereto, or most readily accessible thereto, either in actual distance or in the freedom from congestion and delays in rail movements between such coal fields and such section; and that apportionment of the bituminous coal, produced in the various coal fields of the United States, for delivery and consumption thereof in the different designated consuming sections of the United States, sometimes called a zoning system, will facilitate the movement of bituminous coal, tend to prevent either locally or generally scarcity thereof, and is necessary for the production of a sufficient quantity of bituminous coal to aid in the successful prosecution of the war,

The United States Fuel Administrator, acting under authority of an Executive Order of the President of the United States, dated 23 August, 1917, appointing said Administrator, and of subsequent Executive Orders, and in furtherance of the purpose of said order and of the Act of Congress therein referred to and approved August 10, 1917,

Hereby orders and directs that until further or other order of the United States Fuel Administrator, and subject to revocation or modification by him from time to time and at any time hereafter, every producer (which term includes every person, firm, corporation or association operating as owner, lessee, or purchaser of the entire output of a mine) of bituminous coal in the State of Indiana, shall, except as hereinafter provided, sell, ship, and distribute such coal only to dealers and consumers and for use and consumption within the following described section of the United States, hereinafter called consuming zone, viz: that portion of the States of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Wisconsin and Michigan on and within the following boundary lines:

1. On the East, from Joppa, Illinois, on a line coincident with the Ohio River (both banks) to Madison, Indiana; thence coincident with the Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railway to North Vernon; thence coincident with the Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis Railway to Rush ville; thence coincident with the Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis Railway through Richmond to the Indiana-Ohio State Line; thence coincident with the Indiana-Ohio State Line North to the Southern boundary of Michigan; thence coincident with the New York Central Railroad through Jackson, Michigan, to Lansing; thence coincident with the Pere Marquette Railway to Howard City; thence coincident with the Grand Rapids & & Indiana Railway to Mackinaw City, Michigan;

2.

Provided, however, that any such producer may ship such a quantity of coal of such special quality, and for such special use or purpose, and to such retail dealer or consumer outside of the above designated zone, as may be described and designated in a permit issued by the United States Fuel Administration upon an application from such

consumer, and in accordance with such rules and regulations as may be from time to time prescribed by the United States Fuel Administration;

And, provided further that this order shall not apply to bituminous coal. (a) Shipped for use as railroad fuel,

(b) Shipped in whole or in part by inland waterways (other than the Great Lakes) excepting cases where any rail movement from the mines to the waterways would not terminate within the above designated zone;

This order shall be effective on and after April 1, 1918.

It appearing to the United States Fuel Administrator, that further apportionment of Bituminous coal in that portion of the so-called “Zone D” covered by his “Order relative to Bituminous Coal “Zone D” of March 27, 1918” will facilitate the movement of Bituminous coal, tend to prevent scarcity thereof and is necessary for the production of a sufficient quantity of Bituminous coal to aid in the successful prosecution of the war;
