More coal was mined in Tennessee in 1923 than in the preceding year, as in most of the other States, but no new record was made. The output was 6,040,268 tons, valued at $16,515,000, an increase of nearly 24 per cent in quantity and about 17 per cent in value.

The number of men employed decreased, but the days in operation increased, and the average daily output per man rose from 2.59 tons in 1922 to 2.93 tons in 1923.

The time lost at the mines during the year was due to dearth of railroad cars and an uninterested market; labor troubles amounted to very little.

The course of daily production in 1923, shown in Figure 58, was remarkably steady.

TEXAS

Again Texas mined a little more coal than in the preceding year, but all of the increase came from the lignite fields. The bituminous output was 175,332 tons, which was 89,847 tons, or nearly 34 per cent, less than in 1922, but the output of lignite was greater by 171,169 tons, or more than 20 per cent, making the net gain for the State 81,322 tons, or 7.4 per cent. The value dropped from $2,563,000 to $2,162,000 a loss of $401,000, or 15.6 per cent.

There was a decided falling off in the number of men employed and the days in operation at the bituminous-coal mines, in part because of a seven months' strike at the Bridgeport Coal Co.'s mines; this was partly offset by an increase of both items in the lignite mines. The State, as a whole, showed a decrease of 389 men and 7 days compared with 1922.
