Bibliography of Petroleum and Allied Substances in 1918

Description: From Introduction: "This bulletin is the fourth in the series of petroleum bibliographies being published by the Bureau of Mines, the preceding, Bulletins 149, 165, and 180, being complications for the years 1915, 1916, and 1917, respectively. In this bulletin the same general plan has been followed in arranging the references, but a few changes and additions have been made in classification, the more important changes being in the classes "Geology and Origin" and "Refining and Refineries." During the year German periodicals were not available, and as in the bibliography for 1917, references to articles in foreign journals that were not available have been taken from other sources and credit given to those sources."

Regulation of Explosives in the United States: with Especial Reference to the Administration of the Explosives Act of October 6, 1917, by the Bureau of Mines

Description: From Origin of Federal Explosives Act, October 6, 1917: " A competent force from the Bureau of Mines was then assigned to study the laws and ordinances of countries, States, and municipalities in which lawas and ordinances regulating explosives have been enacted, and especially to ascertain how these laws had been modified by the necessities of the existing state of war, and, also, wherein the proposed law might conflict with or overlap the jurisdiction of existing laws. This incomplete enumeration of the peace-time uses of explosives shows that the quantity consumed is large. A more definite conception is given by the following statistics of production, to which is added statistics for exportation that disclose something of the effect of war on the explosives industry."
