TITLE VIII.

ORDERS AND REGULATIONS RELATING TO THE DISTRIBU

TION OF ANTHRACITE.
Allotments of Domestic Sizes of Anthracite Coal for the Coal Yeor 1918-1919: 1

After the completion of an investigation into the prospective anthracite coal production for the coal year 1918-1919, the United States Fuel Administration, on June 1, 1918, announced an apportionment of that prospective production among the different sections of the United States.

These allotments were based on the consumption in the respective districts during the coal year 1916-1917, with such increases and decreases as changed requirements within each particular district, and the necessity of eliminating long hauls, demanded.

The apportionment covers only domestic sizes of anthracite, the balance of the anthracite production being required for war industries, public utilities and the army and navy. The allotments for the particular sections in gross tons were as follows: New England...

10, 331, 000 Atlantic States..

31, 417, 154 Central States.

3, 481, 945 Northwest...

2,380,000 All other States ?.

000 Railroad Supply.

2, 481, 754 Canada.......

3, 602, 000 Miscellaneous Exports..

51, 930 Army and Navy Camps and Cantonments..

600,000

54, 345, 783

1 The plans for distribution for this year will follow the lines of distribution for the twelve months commencing with April 1, 1916. Figures are now being prepared, and will within a few days be sent to all State Administrators, which will show in total the tonnage of domestic sizes of anthracite coal allotted to that particular State and in detail to each community in the State of five hundred people or more.

Based on this, it is not going to be difficult to determine exactly what each community will receive, and the Local Administrator in the community will determine any change in distribution among the dealers that may be necessary.

Unless suggestions are received from him the distribution will follow the normal lines of the twelve months commencing with April 1, 1916, and the coal will be shipped by the regular coal shipping companies through the regular channels of distribution to the dealer. (Extract from circular letter sent out by Distribution Division of United States Fuel Administration.)

2 Saving; from the estimate; made, permitted a subsequent allotment of 146,000 tons to Iowa.

Order of the United States Fuel Administrator of July 31, 1918, Effective Aug. 3, 1918,

Establishing an Anthracite Coal Zone Regulating the Distribution and Apportionment of Anthracite Coal from Coal Docks in the States of Minnesota, Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and Wisconsin on the Western Bank of Lake Michigan and Lake Superior.

WASHINGTON, D. C., July 31, 1918. It appearing to the United States Fuel Administration 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 anthracite 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 anthracite coal produced in the United States will facilitate the movement of anthracite coal and is necessary for the production of a sufficient quantity of anthracite 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 orders 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 and modification by him from time to time and at any time hereafter, every shipper (which term shall include every person, firm, corporation or association shipping as owner, lessee or purchaser of any coal from lake docks) of anthracite coal from any of the coal docks in the States of Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois and the Upper Peninsula of the State of Michigan, located along the western bank of Lake Michigan and Lake Superior shall, except as hereinafter provided, sell, ship and distribute such coal only to dealers and consumers for use and consumption within the following described section of the United States, viz:

(1) The States of North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin; (2) The Upper Peninsula of the State of Michigan;
