Coal mining by machinery is on

pected Thus1i 1890 the quantity
of bituminous coal mined by ma
chines was 1417 per cent of the total
product of thai year and In 1807 it
1610 per cent of the entire output
But in 1808 the industry received
considerable impetus as will bo seen
when it is stated that the total quan
tHy Of machine mined coal was 2080
per cent of the whole Those figures
wore further enlarged by the returns
of 1800 which showed that the per
cpntago machinemined coal
amounted to 23 per centi pfthecn
Ltie production As far as the actual
figures of production are concerned
the palm of course was carrlod off
by 1899 with a total of 48063083
short tons or almost 12000000 tons
more than was BO produced in J898
