Extinguishing and Preventing Oil and Gas Fires

Description: From Introduction: " As the subject of oil and gas is necessarily broad, no attempt is made in this bulletin to treat it exhaustively; rather the bulletin aims to point out what has been done by operators in the past, and to describe various fire-prevention methods and fire-fighting apparatus which are being used or adopted by many of the larger oil companies. These methods and apparatus, it is believed, if universally employed by operators, will largely decrease the present enormous annual losses."

Pennsylvania Mining Statutes Annotated

Description: From Author's Explanation: "This bulletin is intended to include every legislative enactment of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania relating to the mining and mineral industries. The entire body of mining laws is set out for these obvious reasons: (1) To show the progress and advancement made, and the changes through which the enactments have passed; (2) an author may not assume the determination of what particular laws are in fact in effect, as this is within the jurisdiction of the courts alone; (3) it was at least necessary to set out all acts that had at any time been construed by the courts."
