The Jaauary output oC soft coal failed to make good the slump recorded m December. Thu total pro- fiucuon of bituminous coal, including lignite and coal made into coke, is estimated as U, 727,000 ne^ tons, only 37 ,000 ions more lhaii the December production, says the report of the United States Goola^ical Survey, prepared by C. K. Lesher. Indeed, be- 1 cause January contained 26 working days as compared with 25 in December the daily rate of production in Jannary was lower than in December. Preliminary estimates place the average datlj- outpiu during January at 1.643,000 tons as coorpared with 1,686,000 tons in December. The rate of biiara.uous production during tho first month of 3937 was lower thaa in any montli since September. 19J6.
