NOT" QUITE SO BAD.
. Fearful Forebodings of a Kew Jersey
Scientist Made Light of.
SCOUTED UY UK. ASHBURNER.
He Does Not Fear Eitlier'the Wrecking of a
i-" Continent or of the Globe
'BI THE EXHAUSTION OP NATURAL GAS
"The doom of "Western Pennsylvania was
predicted and explained to a New York
''Herald reporter the other day by J. E.
Thickston, who the Herald says "is a well
known Ecicntist and astronomer living at
Metuchen, N. J." "While speaking of the
Johnstown horror, he said:
"The news from Central Pennsylvania is
awful, hut this nay be only a tery little thing
compared with what may yet occur. Near and
vest of the AUegbenies a great opening within
the earth's crust must bo made somewhere by
the escape of natural gas. Will the earth settle
and till the empty places or will air pass in and
thereby male it possible for the immense reser
voirs of gas, stored away no one knows how far,
to explode and make an upheaval?
Many people believe there is gas enough un
der Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio to
blow the country from Lake Erie to the Mo
nongahela INTO PKOMISCUOUS FRAGMENTS.
"When oil -was struct at Oil Creek In 1S59.
timid folks feared a collapse and a sinking of
the oil field, bat that danger was obviated by
water running into the wells as the oil ran out.
The dreaded vacuum never came,as water took
the place of the removed oil. It is not so in
this case. Water is not filbng up the gas wells
except to a limited extent. Wnat the outcome
may be is not really a very enjoyable thing to
revolve in our minds these pleasant June mora
ine. "A submerged valley lined with the bones of
15.000 men, women aud children is a fearful
thing in the historv of the human race, but
what of that compared with a wrecked conti
nent? "What of that compared with a world
blown open or blown to fragments? I am not
an alarmist or a sensational Wiggios. I do not
believe Old Mother Earth is about to be shot
into smithereens, but there may be dancer
ahead in this direction, and although we
frieve over the Conemaugh catastrophe, let us
e thankful that there has not been a natural
gas explosion out West, and that there are not
two ring Instead of one set of asteroids in the
riTTSBUBG'S GEOLOGIST SMILES.
A reporter of The Dispatch took the
above to the "Westinghouse building yester
day and had Mr. Chas. A, Ashvnrner, oi
the Pennsylvania and United States Geo
logical Surveys, read the clipping. He
laughed and replied:
"The statement that the Johnstown dis
ter was as nothing compared with what may
happen by the blowing upof "Western Penn
sylvania and Easte.n Ohio into promiscu
ous fragments through the exploitation oi
our natural gas supplies is simply prepos
terous. Still, this fear of what may occur
in onr natural gas regions has gotten such a
hold upon many intelligent people not fa
miliar with the facts that it calls for the
most positive condemnation. In the first
place, no cavity exists under "Western Penn
sylvania where natural gas is obtained of
appreciable size, that is, of a size sufficiently
great for the smallest insect, if other condi
tion made it possible, to descend one of our
natural gas wells, pass through channels in
the gas reservoir rock from the bottom of
this well to the bottom of an adjoining well
100 feet distant and return to the
surface through the second well,
and yet this same gas reservoir
rock is sufficiently porons to con
tain in every acre of surface under which it
lies with a thickness of 100 feet, and with
the gas at pressures frequently frfund be
tween 25,000 000 and 40,000,000 cubic feet
of natural gas. In this case the porosity of
the gas reservoir rock is hardly noticeable
to an ordinary eye, and about the same as
the porosity of the ordinary finegrained.
sandstones nsea lor Dmiaing purposes
' SOME PERSONAL EXPERIMENTS.
"Some of our oil and gas sands are very
much more open and some very much more
compact than the case cited, and therefore
contain more or less gas per cnbic foot of
rock, still of the many thousands of speci
mens I have examined I have never seen
one with as large pores or cavities in it as
one frequently observes in many of the
open grained and porons sandstones and
conglomerates which are being constantly
nsea for structural purposes, so that it is
simply absurd to think of any of the gas
reservoir rocks giving way under the weight
of the superincumbent strata.
"Several years ago I estimated from care
ful records of the production of oil wells
that many of our oil sands have produced
900,000 barrels of oil per square mile of sur
face, and ironi examinations made of the
oil sands themselves, I believe that only
one-tenth of the oil contained in the sand's
can be obtained through wells, the other
nine-tenths being held by capillary attrac
tion in the porous sand so that in many sec
tions of our oil regions the oil sands contain
under one tquare mile of surface 9,000,000
barrels of petroleum. These sands vary
from 20 to 50 feet thick, and it might be
snpposed by many who had not investi
gated the facts that in order to hold
this immense bnlk of oil, that very
large caves would have to exist in the oil
sand, but such is not the fact since the oil
sands are identical in structure and poros
ity with the gas sands. An eminent Scotch
geologist has recently made extensive ex
periments -in the porosity of many of onr
building stones and their capacity to hold
water under different pressures and the re
sults of his experiments prove that oil and
natural gas sand beds are not exceptionally
AN EXPLOSION IMPOSSIBLE.
"The eminent astronomer and scientist
claims that if the surface of the earth in
our natural gas districts does not cave in,
producing a tremendous earthquake, that
then the crust over the exhausted reservoirs
will be blown up by air mixing with the
natural gas as the reservoir becomes ex
hausted. Now any one familiar with
the physical conditions of our gas wells
knows this to be impossible. As long
as the gas wells discharge natural gas under
a' pressure exceeding that of the air at the
mouth of the well (about 15 pounds to the
square inch) air cannot get into the gas well
to mix with the gas to form an explosive
mixture, much less get into the gas reser
voir root from 500 to 2,000 feet below the
top of the well. It requires from 9 to 14
volumes of air to one volume of natural
gas to produce an explosive mixture, and
long before the pressure of the gas could
get so low as to permit nine volumes of air
to enter the well and gas sand, with one
volume of gas, both the gas sand and well
will have been flooded with water, which
would have scaled both the gas sand and
the well, preventing the flowing out of any
more natural gas until a pressure might be
accumulated to exceed the pressure of the

"The whole proposition as a basisof alarm
to the residents of our natural gas districts
is simply preposterous and absurd, and the
sooner scientists unfamiliar with the facts
abandon foolish expostulations on the sub

discredit to their proiession and ruining
From the above it will be seen that Mr.
Ashburner's sleep isn't disturbed by the
Jerseyman's warning. Semi-scientists have
from time to time since 1860 imagined many
vain things regarding the exhaustion of
petroleum. Some have held, as a result of
a smattering education on physical science,
that Infinity placed petroleum in the bowels
of the earth to lubricate the earth's axis
and that when human greed had extracted
it might refuse to revolve. As the conse
quence would be dire, they were excusable
ior entering a protest.
A street preacher, a "Christian Scientist,"
in 1861, with bowels bursting with compas
sion for the remains of his ancestors, dilated
on the heinousness of usinsr the oil of the
"ante-divulians" carcasses for illuminating
purposes. In his view there might be some
excuse for the Parsees in using it to main
