The treasures of the earth, which constitute the mineral resources of its human inhabitants, took the building of the world through mil- fDc lions of years for their manufacture. The mineral deposits of the earth have been produced without the aid bi man, hut are a part of the heritage of the human race. Society has largely intrusted that heritage to the care of individuals and corporations. This trust should he administered in the interest of society Such interest demands that the supply of minerals should be reduced as slowly as possible with due respect for the economic rights of succeeding generations, who, through unending years to come, may participate in the enjoyment of these gifts of nature, for the mineral resources, once dissipated, are gone forever. How has this trust been executed? Have those individuals and corporations to whom the development of these resources has been entrusted by society given due consideration to the rights of society? It is the purpose of this paper to show that they have not, but rather that they have seized upon these resources, by legal fjJ warrant, it may he, but with a selfish disregard for the rights of so- SgO] ciety and a ruthless waste that de- a™ serves the severest condemnation. In fact they have executed this trust 0^j more as a band of robbers than responsible administrators. If this be true, then it is high time for society to resume this trust, before these resources have been wasted beyond recovery, and to devise ways and means by which they may be conserved and the better dstributed to meet the needs of a developing society. But how to do this is another question reserved for later treatment. In order to make these criticisms more pertinent to conditions in Texas I shall briefly review the ruthless exploitation of our mineral deposits suitable for fuel, coal, petroleum and natural gas. Coal is the result of a geological process by which the rank growth of vegetation of the carboniferous period has been transformed into a mineral for our use in the later ages. Petroleum and natural gas owe their origin to closely related causes. The importance of coal as a means of the development of civilization can scarcely be overestimated. Its w'aste is worse than criminal. Its proper conservation by economic methods of mining, distribution and consumption is a sacred duty to posterity. Of the three kinds of coal found ¡af in the United States, anthracite, bituminous and lignite, the last two only ¡Uc are found in Texas. These three p varieties are found ranging in value ffji and abundance in an inverse ration in S the order given above. Anthracite, ¿2 the most valuable, exists more rarely, ^while lignite, the least valuable, exists in much the greater quantity. There are considerable deposits of bituminous coal underlying the surfaces of several counties in North Texas, extending south from Wichita Falls. The Thurber district is probably the most profitable, and its product the most widely known in the State. Lignite is the youngest, but most bountiful in quantity, and least valuable in quality. Its profitable mining depends upon its nearness to the surface, its relative hardness and more or less ability to withstand de­ trioration and transportation to a nearby market. There is a tendency for these reasons to justify more wasteful methods of mining and consumption, which should not be tolerated. There are considerable areas of this coal in Texas extending in a broad hand quite across the state to within about fifty miles of the seacoast. It is a valuable resource and should not be wasted for the sake of posterity, who may find more efficient methods of mining and consumption, ^eck here The various wastes in mining bitu- wastes of petroleum in Texas are the minous coal have amounted to one- j suffering of wells to flow freely when half or more of the quantity taken first brought in for lack of means to to produce and distribute as oi out. The leaving of many large pil-! store the oil and from fear of cutting Later I hope by the Light of Truth lars in mining is a waste that can off the flow by capping too long.
