Section 7.-Zone F and Modifications.

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

Establishing Bituminous Coal Zone F, Regulating the Distribution and Apportionment of Bituminous Coal from Operations in Virginia along the Louisville & Nashville Railroad; in Eastern Kentucky along the Louisville & Nashville Railroad and the Cincinnati, New Orleans & Texas Pacific Railway, and their Short Line Connections; in Tennessee along the Line of the Cumberland Valley Division of the Louisville & Nashville Railroad, and along the Middlesborough Railroad.

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 bituminous 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 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 shall include every person, firm, corporation or association operating as owner, lessee or purchaser of the entire output of a mine) of bituminous coal in Virginia along the Louisville & Nashville Railroad only; in Eastern Kentucky along the Louisville & Nashville Railroad and the Cincinnati, New Orleans & Texas Pacific Railway and their short line connections; and in Tennessee, along the Cumberland Valley Division of the Louisville & Nashville Railroad and along the Middlesborough Railroad, 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;

(1) That portion of the State of Kentucky on and east of a line coincident with the Louisville & Nashville Railroad from Louisville to Lebanon Junction and east of but not to points on the main line and branches to Glasgow and Scottsville, Kentucky, of the Louisville & Nashville Railroad from Lebanon Junction through Bowling Green, Kentucky, to Nashville, Tennessee;

(2) That portion of the States of Indiana and Ohio on and within the following boundaries; the western boundary is a line coincident with the Chicago, Indianapolis & Louisville Railway from Louisville, Kentucky, to Michigan City, Indiana; and the eastern boundary is a line coincident with the Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis Railway from Cincinnati through Springfield, Bellefontaine and Berwick, to Toledo, Ohio;

Wherever any boundary of the consuming zone described in this order follows a line of railway, except as hereinbefore noted in sub-paragraph (1), the consuming zone shall include all places usually taking deliveries of bituminous coal from points on the portion of the line of railway included in such boundary or within switching limits of other railway lines connecting therewith. This order shall be effective on and after April 1, 1918.
