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.

Structure in Paleozoic Bituminous Coals

Description: From Introduction: "To fill in a few of these gaps and to clarify some of the existing confusion is the aim of this paper. The immediate cause that led the author to investigate further the composition of coal and the origin and structure of its constituents was that when an attempt was made to discover the meaning of the coking and noncoking properties of a coal a more exact knowledge of the nature of the coal was required than was then available."
