Section 9.-Zone H and Modifications.

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

Establishing Bituminous CoalZone II,'' Regulating the Distribution and Apportionment of Biluminous Coal from Operations in Alabama.

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 location 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

1 See also Chapter III, Title II, Section 15, for orders modifying the provisions of the “Zone II” order with respect to shipments of smithing coal.

of production, notwithstanding a continuance of the other present favorable con. ditions 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 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 Alabama, 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: The States of Louisiana. Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida; that portion of the State of Texas on and east of a line coincident with the Houston East and West Texas Railway from Logansport. Louisiana, to Houston; thence coincident with the Galveston, Houston and Henderson Railroad to Galveston, Texas; that portion of the State of Arkansas on and south of a line coincident with the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railway from Memo phis, Tennessee, through Little Rock and Mansfield, Arkansas; that portion of the State of Tennessee lying West of the Tennessee River, and on and south of a line coincident with the Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis Railway from Memphis through Jackson and Perry ville, Tennessee.

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;

(c) Shipped to any points in Canada or Mexico.

Wherever any boundary of the consuming zone described in this order follows a line of railway, 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 or other railway lines connecting therewith This order shall be effective on and after April 1, 1918.
