IOWA

as

The production of coal in Iowa in 1923 was 5,710,735 tons, with a value of $20,517,000, an increase over that of 1922 of 1,375,574 tons, or 31.7 per cent, in quantity, and of $4,398,000, or 27.3 per cent, in value. The number of employees, 11,448, was fewer than in 1922, but the average number of days worked was greater-181, compared with 131.

The average quantity produced per day in Iowa and the neighboring trans-Mississippi Štates for the years 1918–1922 and for each month in 1923 is shown in Figure 49. Conditions were not unlike in these States, varying in degree only.

1923 FIGURE 19.- Production of coal per working day in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, and Oklahoma,

1918-1923. Data from Table 78

KANSAS

The output of coal in Kansas was greater in 1923 than in 1921 or 1922, but with these exceptions it was less than for any year since 1899, when 3,852,267 tons was produced. The production in 1923 was 4,443,149 tons, with a total value of $14,275,000 and an average value of $3.21.

The tons mined per day in the months of 1923 and the five preceding years are charted in Figure 49.

The statistics of coal production in Kansas published by the Geological Survey for the years 1921 and 1922 are now known to have been incomplete. For those years the Survey relied entirely upon correspondence in collecting the statistics and neither sent an agent into the field nor checked its returns against those of the State mine officials. The market conditions were such as to stimulate the activity of small mines and cooperative mines not bound by the union scale, and later comparison with the returns of the State Coal Mine Inspection Department showed that the Survey had failed to obtain reports from all the mines operating in those years. Thus in 1922 the mines reporting to the State inspection department produced 3,318,243 tons, and the department estimated an additional quantity of 200,000 tons from miscellaneous small mines. The production of the mines reporting to the Geological Survey (Table 95) for 1922 was 2,955,170 tons, of which 178,924 tons came from wagon mines served by rail. The details by counties in the State report are given in the footnote to Table 95. In 1921 the State inspection department showed a total output of 4,028,624 tons, including its estimate for the small mines, against a figure of 3,466,641 tons published by the Geological Survey. For 1923 and for years prior to 1921 there is no material discrepancy between the State and Survey figures.

These figures for 1922 are incomplete. The State Coal Mine Inspection Department gives the following figures for 1922, which are believed to be complete: Cherokee County, 548,764 tons, 1,351 men; Crawford County, 2,418,572 tong, 7,073 men; Leavenworth County, 163,868 tons, 187 men; Osage County, 92,787 tons, 504 men; Linn County,

94,252 tons, 281 men; total mines reporting, 3,318,243 tons, 9,376 men; estimated small mines not reporting, 200,000 tons, 250 men; grand total, including estimate, 3,518,243 tons, 9,626 men.
