German Coal for LondonI

German Coal for London IMPORTS COMPENSATED FOR BY INCREASED EXPORTS Inquiries made in London show, says the Central News, that recent reports as to enormous purchases of German gas coal for London gas companies have been exaggerated. The total quantity pur- chased is 250,000 tons, through Messrs. Gardner, Locket, and Hinton, and the prico is much higher than the remarkably low figure quoted. With reference to the alarm felt bv the Durham gas-coal merchants, it is pointed out that coal from the Westphalian coal- fields can be sent into London at a cheaper rate than into Hamburg; and, further, that coal can be sent from the Tyne to Hamburg at less cost for freight- age than Ruhr in Westphalia. This fact is due to the comparaftive cheapness of sea. transit as against the charges on the Prussian State Railways. It is urged, therefore, that the Durham coalmasters should be able to ship in- creased quantities of coal to Germany to take the place of any German coal which may come to London. London is in fact—in oonsequerfe of the position of the Westphalian coalfield in regard to transit-the more natural port for German coal than Hamburg. The excellent system of canals from the coal- fields to the cost is a. great factor in the cheapness of transit for the German pro- duct. ————— — <—————
