TIIE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-WEDNESDAY MOHNING. OCTOBER 17, 1894.
MINE, MILL AND RA1LR0A I). ,
William Heekert, a Fludlay, O.. me
chanical eiiRlneer, proposes to replen
ish the natural gas supply of Ohio by a
new process of, his own. This process
is based upon the same principles as
are largely used in the making of arti
ficial gas machinery, viz.: forcing all
through a body of crude petroleum.
This process of making artificial gus
has been in vogue for many years, and
Mr. Heekert simply proposes to use the
earth as his gus machine. It is well
known that the gas bearing territory
in northwestern Ohio is underluld b
vast stretches of porous rock in which
crude petroleum exluts in larger or
smaller quantities. The lieckert pro
cess proposes by means of immense
pumpB to force a vast current of air
simultaneously down several wells
which have yielded some oil. This olr
passing through the oil-saturated
stratum of rock will become sufficiently
and permanently carburated to change
It to a gas for heating or lighting. Tho
Kas having been thus manufactured
will find its way to the surface ana
mains via other wells in the neighbor
hood. All the arrangements for making the
test of the Heekert method have been
made. A lurge pumping engine and air
compresBers have been purchased by
the company owning the patents, and
a thorough series of experiments will be
made. Large capitalists and experts
from eastern cities have recently vis
ited Findlay and Investigated the Heek
ert theory, with the result that plenty
of money and other assistance have
been forthcoming. Several of the best
and oldest experts in Pennsylvania oil
and gas fields, representing vnist inter
ests, have looked into the matter, ana
without exception reported their bellet
In the ultimate success of the plan,
which, In its results, would be equaled
only by the discovery of oil and gas.
It would mean a revolution In the now
exhausted gus fields of Pennsylvania
and West Virginia, while the capital
and industries interested in the per
manence of the gas would take on a
new feeling of security.
The chief of the bureau of statistics
reports that the total values of the ex
ports of merchandise from the United
States during the months ended Sept.
BO, 1S94, as compared with similar ex
ports during the corresponding year,
were as follows: September, 1SU4, t-9,-(S.S6o;
im, $72,02G.7U8. Nine months

StiU3,221,&73. Ill September last the ex
ports exceeded the Imports by $8,440,35.1.
In September, 1X93, the excess of ex
ports over imports was $25,726.1Sfl. Dur
ing the nine months ended Sept. 30, 1S94,
the excess of exports over imports was
J73.517.2S4. and the excess of Imports
for the corresponding period of the pre
ceding year was $22,103,499. In Septem
ber, 1894, the Imports of gold exceeded

exrpss of exDorts over imports was $73,-

A Dover, N. J., dispatch says: "The
Shops of the Delaware, Lackawanna
and Western railroad have been put
on full time and there Is work enough
heart to keen the employes busy for
a year. The shops have been running
only eight hours a day despite the fact
that much work was on hand and as a
conseuuence many cars had to be sent
to the Scranton shops."
Some years ago the Pennsylvania
railroad company purchased a large
tract of 18.000 acres et West Hazleton
nstpiislblv for the coal that might be
under it. For many months they pros'
pected, but could not locate enough coal
to warrant the beginning of operations,
their own men claiming that there was
but little or no coal to be found. The
firm of J. ,0. llayden & Co. were then
granted permission !to prospect and
practlcaly obtained an option on the
land. For the past year several men
have been engaged in prospecting and
succeeded In locating the coal.

New York, Oct. 16. The receipt of
lower quotations from London and un
certainty In regard to the extent of the
outflow of gold led to an irregular mar
ket for stocks at the opening. The sel
ling lacked force, however, and subse
quently a better tone prevailed. The
main factor, however was the great
strength shown by American Sugar,
which advanced from 84 to S(i? on pur
chases of upward of 80,000 shares.
Changes in other leading shares were
far less Important, but prices closed
fractionally higher than yesterday.
Trading In a majority of Instances fell
to unusually small proportions and was
almost entirely local. Speculation left
off firm lin tone. Total sales were
