Description: From Introduction: "This bulletin is the fourth of a series showing the results of the purchase of coal by the Government under specifications. The work of inspecting and analyzing coal delivered on Government contracts was transferred to the Bureau of Mines by an act of Congress effective July 1, 1910. It had been carried on for several years before that date by the technologic branch of the United States Geological Survey. The purpose of this paper is to explain in general terms the methods that the Government has found most satisfactory for the purchase of a large part of its coal supply, including the consideration of bids, the awarding of contracts, and the analyzing of samples on which the price corrections are based."
