MONTANA

The year 1923 in the Montana coal fields showed a large increase over the record of the strike year 1922–575,457 tons, or 22.4 per cent, more coal being raised. Although the average value per ton decreased, the total value showed a gain of $1,443,500, or 17.6 per cent.

The mines were in operation more days but employed fewer men than in the preceding year.

The curve of average daily output (fig. 51) shows the summer depression characteristic of the northwestern States, with an abnormal drop in December.

NEW MEXICO

Only two States of any importance produced less coal in 1923 than in 1922; New Mexico was one of them, and Utah the other. Neither was greatly affected by the strike of 1922, and both felt the competition of fuel oil in 1923. The output in New Mexico was 2,915,173 tons, as compared with 3,147,173 tons in 1922, a loss of 232,000 tons, or 7.4 per cent, although the number of employees was slightly greater-4,095, against 4,001—and the number of days worked was 216 in both years. The value of the coal produced was $10,668,000, a decrease of $309,000, or 2.8 per cent, in comparison with that of 1922.

In Figure 46 the curve of production in tons per day is shown for the years 1918 to 1922 and for the twelve months of 1923.
