Chief Inspector of Mines C."J.
Norwood Says 15,570,000
Tons Produce.
Lexington, Kv Jan. 10. In hiB
estlmnte of the Kutuoky coal pro
duction for 1912, Clilt'f Inspector of
Mines Norwood snyn It willbe about
15,670,000 tons divided as follows:
District Tons.
Western 7,480,000
Southeastern ...4,815,000
Northeastern 8,245,000
Total 15,570,000
This Indicates an lncreaso of more
than 1,500,000 tons over the output
for 1911, and an Increase of moro
than 900.000 tons over that for 1910,
which hitherto has beeu the "ban
ner" year.
The report says:
"Complete roturns for November
and actual figures for December may
either Increase or decrease the es
timated amount somewhat, but it
seems safe to place the output at not
loss that about 15,000,000 tons.
"The prospects for 1913 are bright.
Barrlug extraordinary disturbances,
I look for an output of not less than
20,000.000 tonB ; hut It may be materi
ally greater.
"A statement showniK production
by counties will be made public
Mr. Norwood says his estimate ex-
caeds that of the government by 1,-
