Coke can be delivered at the ovens here much cheaper than these figures indicate, and still afford a large profit to the maker. OPINION OF TWO ENGLISH EXPERTS. Mr John W. Darby, of Wexham, Eng.', and /;, \; ? .1K*\of " !irn?Ston, Eng., members of the British Iron A Steel Institute, recently visited Big Stone Gap. Mr. Darby is a young man, but has already reached a prominent no^ sition among the iron and steel producers of England. lie inherits his aptness for these in? dustries from ancestors who have been prom? inent in them for a century. His grandfather was the first to make iron* from uncoked coal and his own plant, located near Chester, was' the first to use successfully the basic process for making steel. Mr. Monks is one of the oldest and best known of the practical iron and coke men of England. "The very things I wanted to see are here. 1 did not care to see the manufactories in oper? ation, for we have those ?t home as numerous and as nearly perfect as one could wish to sec. although I must say that. I have been greatly surprised and pleased at the great concerns we saw in the North. Their equipments are not so complete nor their methods so economical as ours in England, but they are rapidly ap? proaching it. What those of us who'mean business wished to see in America is just what I have seen to-day at Big Stone Gap; as fine coke as I have ever seen in England, with iron ores only two miles away, and limestone be? tween, together with water power and railroads. This is a combination that is bound to make you great here. I have nevernccn it equaled elsewhere. Your coke is the best I have seen in America. The brown ores we inspected to? day are admirably adapted to the basic process. Of course, your proximity to the magnet ic ores at Cranberry is a great card in your favor, but you will not need that to make the possibilities of this point simply incalculable. We have been over a large portion of the Southern min? eral belt, and I regard this as the best point we have seen for the manufacturing of basic steel, owing to the quality and quantity of your brown ores and their proximity to this coke. I have enjoyed my day here greatly, and hope I can return soon." Mr. Monks spoke in the same strain, saying he had been a practical producer of coke and iron for forty years, and that he had never seen better coke: and the iron ore, both brown and red were fine. He thought the best card for the future of Big Stone Gap in the iron indus? try was the advantage it had over any other place he had seen for the production of steel by the basic process. timber. Prof. Procter in his report says of the tim? ber: "About DO per cent of the area included in the Appalachian coal-field in Southwest Vir? ginia, West Virginia,and Southeast Kentucky, is covered with forest of valuable hardwoods? oak, yellow poplar, hickory, etc. The Black Mountains, immediat- ly north of Big Stone Gap, are heavily timbered from base to sum? mit with as magnificent forests as I have ever seen.
