I feel that it is almost a piece of audacity on my part to address you on the subject of furnaces, as I think I shall not be far wrong in stating that the majority of you have had much more experience than I have had: nevertheless, I am emboldened to do so by the very importance of the subject both at the present time and in the future.

One of our greatest national assets is our coal supply, and upon the use or misuse of this commodity will depend, to no small degree, our future national prosperity and well-being.
