The estimate i« made in a summary of reports showing the production of hard and soft coal by districts and which notes the dlfflcurtSes which were encountered in 1917 and which are being thought over with the idea of solving. .The report says in part: "Under the o-rinHng conditions with tht extraordinary demand for fuel and th« stimulus of extremely high wages, the outlook in Pennsylvania is favorable for a record-breaking production in 1918, provided the car supply and car distribution can be maintained with necessary efficiency, and further provided that tbc men can be kept atead- ily at work instead of indulging in the too-frequent vacation periods for the purpose of enjoying their itmnifi- cent earnings."

The wages of the miners have risen to alru^st unreasonable heights · and reports of unheardrof earnings are "received from all sections of the region. "'.'The rear's activities were - hampered somewhat · by labor ^shortages, strikes, disturbances over wage scales and by an inadequate car supply. "Strikes occasioned very Kttle trouble, but in most districts the -shortage of labor and ears was keenly foil, although in some instances tbe handicap of labor shortage was overcome by in! creasing the number of working I hours. - ** "A ; few districts for some unknown ! reason seemed to be entirely immune from .the untoward conditions and passed -through the year without loss of trade or inconvenience of operation. The output, liad all conditions been favorable, would probably have reached -300,000,000 tons. "The coke output, great as i t , was, would have been several million tons greater had labor been, more plentiful. During the summer months, it was almost impossible to obtain coke drawers, and the conditions became so acute and the prospect.- seemed so hopeless that some of the companies changed their dvens from hand to machine-drawn- types.
