BRITAIN'S SHARE. I Empire's Contribution to the Mineral Output. Some interesting details concerning the mineral production of the world in 1901 are given in a Home Office Blue-book issued the other day. The total output of coal for the whole world during 1901 was 7,889,128,476 tons, and the United States, the British Empire, and Germany produced between them six-JVenths of the world's supply. The United Kingdom contri- buted 222,562,123 tons, and the British Colonies 21,901,873 tons. The United States yielded rather more than a third of the total output and the British Empire rather less than that propor- tion. Germany's output was one-fifth of the total. In the case of gold, the British Empire supplied nearly one-half of the world's supply. Of the lead, she contributed, one-fifth, of the petroleum one-seventieth, one-quarter of the salt, one-ninth of the silver, five-eighths of the tin, and one-fiftieth of the zinc.
