Section 13.-Zone N and Modifications." Order of the United States Fuel Administrator of March 28, 1918, Effective April 1, 1918,

Establishing Bituminous Coal Zone N,Regulating the Distribution and Apportionment of Bituminous Coal from Operations in the Pocahontas, Tug River, and New River Districts of West Virginia and Virginia along the Norfolk & Western, Chesa peake & Ohio, and Virginian Railway, and their Short Line Connections, and in the Clinch Valley District in Tazewell and Eastern Russell Counties, Virginia, along the Norfolk & Western Railway.

WASHINGTON, D. C., March 28, 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. 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 zoning system, will facilitate the movement 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,

(1) The States of North Carolina and Virginia and the District of Columbia, including sidewater terminals;

1 The orders of August 7, 1918, and August 31, 1918, while issued as Modifications Nos. 5 and 6 of“ Zone N,” in fact established an anthracite coal zone and will therefore be found infra in Chapter III, Title VII.

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

(2) Points in Kentucky and Ohio located on the direct lines of the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway and the Norfolk & Western Railway westbound to and including Cincinnati, Ohio, and Columbus, Ohio;
