CHARLESTON, 1%. 8.?People in
the coalbuslnesiln Vfest Virginia are
waking up to theFfact that bituminous
coal baa -superseded antbracKe in tb*
manufacture of pig Iron.
The use of anthracite as a fuel In
blast furnaces became general In 1848
and by 1854 nearly half the pig Iron
production was wade *101 anthracite.
The next year the amount of anthra
cite Iron exceeded the make of char
coal Iron; but In the same year 55,000
tons of bituminous iron were made out
of a total production of a little over
More than a million tons of Iron
were made with anthracite ooal in 1872
but the largest amount in any year
was in 1890, when'the total reached
2,1 Mi411 toil*; but .by 1908 the pro
duction of anthracite iron had dropped
to 355,000 tons and last year !t amount
ed to only 247,179 tons.
But all this time the amount of bi
tuminous iron has been on the In
crease. In 1854 it was 48.647 tons. It
passed charcoal In'.1869 and anthracite
iron in 1875. Last year the produc
tion of anthracite Iron, as already
stated, was 246,179"tons; of charcoal
Iran. 347,025 tons, and of bituminous
Iron. 29.138.733 -tons. The amount of
anthracite used last year for pig iron
manufacture was 73.794 tons while
