ABSTRACT
The author discusses the problems surrounding the anthracite coal mining industry in Pennsylvania. He states that the highly concentrated nature of anthracite coal deposits made it easy to be monopolized. He cites that the problems in the anthracite coal mining industry include the bootlegging of coal, the lack of fuel markets due to the competition of bituminous coal, oil and natural gas and the so-called wild-cat strike. He explains how the Catholic Church could help in solving the problems in the industry.
