THE STATE OF KANSAS 

Introduction

             Kansas was a coal-exporting State by1891, at which time it was producing 500 tons of coke per year (Engr. & Min. Journal, 4Apr, 1891, p. 402-403). Coal measures cover 10,000 mi2, of 20 counties of the eastern  portion of the State and were excellent for gas manufacture and  smelting. Regular mining going on in Leavenworth, Franklin, Neosho, Cherokee, Bourbon and Osage Counties, but, nevertheless, intermittent discoveries of natural gas perturbed the development of manufactured gas Kansas natural gas supplies were notoriously unreliable and, in actuality stunted development of manufactured gas in the State.
