West Virginia Ranks Second. ]
The most Important change in tho
order of the eoal-pro.luciim States ri
sultiim from conditions which existed
In lltoi; was lh-6 replacement of Illi?
nois l'y West Virginia as the second
State in rank. Per several yea s the
production Of West Virginia has been
creeping up on that of Illinois, aim
in 1900 the State lobk the position
held by Illinois since )S7ti. linder or
dlnary conditions this displacement
would have occuircd within a year or
two at liny rate, bat it was possiblv
hastened by the suspension of mining
In tho spring of 1900 In those States
where the mine workers an organiz?
ed. It Is true that, notwithstanding
Ihu almost complete shut down of tho
Illinois mines for a pu lot! of aboti:
eleven weeks, that State exhibited a
normal Increase over I90S, and It Is
claimed that the production would
not have boon any larger had there
been no Interruption to mining oper?
ations; but it is also true that during
the sit it down in the other Stales
mining in West Virginia was excep?
tionally active, and in addition to the
Increased production at tin- operating
mines, new territory was opened up
and much new development work was
stinted. As a result of these condi?
tions West Virginia In 1900 made n
larger Increase In production Hum
anv other State, and took second
place. In view of -he developments
made and In progress It Is not likely
Hint West Virginia will !?> supplanted
by any other State.
The only other changes in rank.
among tho ten lending Slates was the
resumption or fifth place by Alabama,
which had been supplanted In 1908 by
Indiana (now sixth), ami the sup?
planting of Kansas by Tennessee as'
the tenth State In amount of p. mine j
lion. I
Tlie r?cd d for 1908 shows that
Pennsylvania's output has once more
fnlhn below fill per cent, of the lo?
th) production of the I'nlted States,
in the combined production of anthra?
cite and bituminous coal. Pehnsyl
vannl as recently as 1S80 was credit-,
Od with two-thirds of the total coal
output o I'the count:y. but (he pro?
portion produced In that Slate has
t'ieil gradually declining, and In four
of tho'last five years the percentage
lias been less than 5tt. In 1000 Penn?
sylvania produced 48..4 pe ? cent, of
the total. 17.2 per cent, being repre?
sented by the anthracite and 31.2 per
cent, by the bituminous production
Of ISi i other important States. West
Virginia contributed 10.6 per cent., Il?
linois 10 pe ? cent., Ohio U.7 per cent..
Alabama 3.2 per cent, and Indiana 2.0
per cent.
