"The sources of energy for the industries are: 1. Water power; 2. coal, lignite, peat and Wood; 3. Natural and Artificial Gas; 4. Oil; 5. The Sun;s Rays; 6. The tides. The latter two sources may be eliminated from immediate practical use, owing to their cost and limited application. Therefore, the burden for many years will rest upon Water power, coal, gas and oil. We may also eliminate water power from the source of energy of the steel industry, due to the Mill's geographical location. Hence, for the near future, the steel industry's soul rests upon the production of coal, gas and oil" – p. 5.
