The most important new development in 1901 was in Ohio, in Monroe and Washington counties, where a large new production was secured from the Keener and Big Injun sands. There was a series of smaller pools developed in Perry and Morgan counties. The production in the Appalachian or white-sand pool in Ohio in 1901 was almost identical with that of 1900. All of the other States, excepting Kentucky and Tennessee, showed a decrease, amounting to 7.25 per cent in New York, 4.77 in Pennsylvania, and 12.46 in West Virginia. The pro ducers in this older field generally applied themselves to the more economical production of petroleum. Old wells were cleaned out and rigged up, which the more economical source of power secured in the natural-gas engine made it profitable to pump. Greater efforts were also made to keep the walls of the producing sand free from paraffin by the use of hot water and steam, and thereby increase their output. Occasionally they were torpedoed with a light shot and thoroughly cleaned out before pumping began again. PRODUCTION OF THE APPALACHIAN FIELD FROM 1889 TO 1901, INCLUSIVE, BY STATES. The following table exhibits the production of the several States in the Appalachian field. It is impossible to separate New York and Pennsylvania completely. It will be noticed that the production for the last ten years is remarkably regular, although there is considerable variation in the States that make up the totals. The figures have been slightly increased over those reported for last year, owing to the addition of the Kentucky and Tennessee pools. Production of petroleum in the Appalachian oil field from 1889 to 1901, inclusive. Barrels of 42 gallons. The above table shows a decrease more
