Coke Output
For 1912 Grows
The quantity cf toke made in West
Virginia in 1012 was 2.46.VJS6 short
tons, \alued at $4,692,303, compared
with 2.291.049 tons, valued at $4,236.in
1911. according to the (tailed
States (iinlogicul Survey. The ini*
rente in 1012 was 7.64 per cent m
i|iraulity ami 10.75 per efcnt in value.
In spite of this increase the produc
inn of coke in West Virginij in 11)12
was smaller than lir.it cf any ycai
from 11)05 -to I'.HO. The smaller proliirticn
in the last two years is attributable
simply to the larger produclion
of Col.c from West Virginia coal
at plants in oilier slates, in 1012 the
iiuuillty cf coal made into coke in
tVcst Virginia wag 1,061,701 short tons
Ii is probable that the quantity oi
West. Virginia coal made Into coke in
ovens outside of the state exceeded
" ,000,000 short ions. In the coke making
as in the coal-mining industry
West Virginia suffers from having
lelaiivcljr little home consumption for
her product. Kiglitv per cent of the
i-oal mined in the state and nearly ail
of the coke made is sent to consnmtrs
In other states.
Next to Pennsylvania. West Virginia
possesses more wealth in supplies
of coking and other high-grade coals
than any other state in the t'nioii, but
is long as both the coal and the < oke

I he position she should occupy as a
