MAKING GAS FROM
THE FINEST CULM
Experiment Made ia this City Shows
That It Is Possible.
PAPER PREPARED ON THE SUBJECT
Will He Kind nt the. Meeting of the
Hoard ol Trase on Monday, Oct. 10.
Recent Disco eric Promise to
Make the Anthrncite Vallcr the
ireiitet (.n ProdncinK Region in
For the past three years the Seranton
iKinrd of trails has spent a great deal of
time, money and energy in setting
forth the advantages of our cheap fuel,
which is stored In such large quantities
in the culm banks of the anthracite re
gions. In Klectrlclty." of Aug. 1. 1S94. np
pearert n. four column editorial under
the head "The Culm Bank vs. Niagara
Palls." This article was based upon
statistics compiled by Secretary Ather
ton on the cost of fuel per horse power
in .Si ianum. and the author easily
proved that strain generated by the
ue of ailtu ns a 'fuel, was cheaper than
electricity generated at the great Ni
agara. In Cassier's November. 189.".. Maga
zine, appeared ah article by Nelson V.
Perry, an eminent engineer of New
York, on the question of culm as a
steam fuel. Mr. Perry after spending
several weeks in Scranton investigat
ing nnd experimenting, found that culm
used ns u fuel for steam production
was cheaper than electricity furnished
by the Niagara company. In the De
cember. ISitj, number of the "Knglneer
ing News" can be found an able article
on "The ruiizalion of Anthracite Culm
nt Scranton. Pa." This is a review of
the two articles mentioned above, und
the deductions of the writer not only
prove that steam generated by culm as
a fuel is cheaper than electricitv, but
that the cost per horse power is even
less than claimed bv the writers of
either of the nlmve articles.
NHtur.Uly the attention of the world
has been called to this subjeut, and
many experts in this line, both in
America und Kurope, have given the
question a great amount or study. The
question, how best to utilize this vast
amount of energy, lias been the most
important one in dealing with the sub
ject. It bus been proved beyond ques
tion that the power Is in the culm bank.
Now then, what Is the best plan to
utilize it? Shall it be converted into
steuui, electricity or gas?
(IAS MOST ECONOMICAL.
From experiments lately made In this
city, the answer to that question would
seem to 1 that gas Is by far the most
economical. There nre many gas pro
ducers in ulceration using prepared an
thracite coal, hut owing to the high
price of the coal, the gas becomes ex
pensive. To produce gas from anthru
clte culm, nnd that, after the courser
particles have been remoed by wash
ing, screening, etc.. has been the all
absorbing question. Some years ago
experiments were made by some New
VorU cooitnlists, nt the lirecn Kidge
I ion works in this city, A huge amount
of money wns expended, in the endeav
r lo produce gas from culm dust, and j
supci lieuted steam, but with very litll
If any, success. There is ut the present
day however, no doubt but what gas
can lie produced In large quantities
from anthracite culm. In fact the re
sults obtained ate tiiarveloi, and the
day is not fur distant when the gas en
gine will replace the steam engine, our
elect I'lc power und lighting plants will
be run by gas thus produced, all manu
facturing concerns now using steam
power will use the gas engine exclusiv
ly. Experiments have been carried on for
some time In this city, and that success
bus been attained will be exemplilied nt
the next meeting of the board of trade
which will be held on Oct. 19. when a
paper will be read showing the wonder
ful results obtained In the production of
gas from the liner particles of anthra
cite culm, also from the culm just as It
comes from thp bank.
The publication of this paper is
awaited with a. great amount of inter
est by steam users all over the coun
try, nnd it is bellved that in the nenr
future our city and valley will be
transformed into a great gas pro
The screening and washing of our
culm banks Is becoming general, and
no doubt every culm bank In the an
thracite region will eventually be
cleaned In this manner, leaving only
the dust behind. This is like utilizing
the entire "hog" with the exception of
the "squeal," nnd notf a way Is pro
vided to virtually convert the "squeal"
Into a factor much more potent than
the original "hog" could ever hope to
DIFFERENCE IS SLIGHT.
While It Is evident that better re
sults are obtained In the production of
gas by using the culm fresh from the
bank, yet the finer particles or dust as
it is called contain more gaseons sub
stance to the ton thnn does the original
culm, and while it may not be so read
ily converted into gas, yet the number
of cubic" feet obtained from the one as
compared with the other Is so slight
that It Is not worth considering.
Not only will the use of this dust
he of Inestimable value to our city and
valley as an Inducement to manufac
turers, but valuable lands will be
cleared of these unsightly piles and our
city beautified accordingly.
It would seem to the careful observer
that a bright future Is In store for
Scranton by. utilisation of these enor
mous banks of culm In the production
of gas for power purposes. The pa tier
above referred to will be printed In full
In the Tribune along with the report
of the board of trade meeting to be
held on October 19.
At the Frothlnghnm this nnd tomor
row evenings, and at a special popular
priced matinee tomorrow, there will be
seen a new melodrama entitled "In the
Heart of the Storm." Willard Lee,
who plays the part of Captain Hudson,
of the United States revenue cutter
service, and under whose direction the
play has been staged, promises an
elaborate and picturesque presentation,
combined with novel and striking me
chanical effects. The scenes of the play
are laid in the south. The story of the
play deals with the fortunes of Paul
Hudson, a captain in the United States
revenue service. A few years prior to
the opening of the play his father had
been accused of murder and dies in
prison under the accusation, by one of
his partners. Paul's one great purpose
In life Is to hunt down his father's tra
ducers and bring them to justice.

CITY SPORTS COMPANY.
The Fuuniest Entertainment of
Keatoa at Davis' Theater.
Delighted audiences witnessed
opening iierformauces of Sheridan &
Flynn's engagement at Davis' theatre
yesterday afternoon and evening. In
"City Sports" many of the artists of the
Sheridan & Flynn combination of last
season appear, but the entertainments
have been much Improved In almost
every detail, with new acts and new
jokes, and "City Sports" may be num
bered among the funniest Entertain
ments that have been given at this
theater. Misses Howard and Earl In
their un-to-date character songs were
well received, and the musical come
dinns. (leorge Snyder and Harry Buck
ley, gave a performance of excellence
that evoked enthusiastic encores.
Charles Johson and Dora Dean, octa
roons, were among the new faces, and
their songs and dances were among the
most original and amusing of the pro
gramme and were repeatedly encored.
The special comedy work of Dave Fos
ter and Fanny Lewis was up-to-date
and sparkled with originality.
Mile. Meza. the Spanish contortion
ist, performed fents that were new and
marvelous, and the grotesque dancing
of Misses Deltnore anil Jerome was well
received. The other comedy work and
musical features were brightly inter
preted by Miss Crlssle Sheridan, Phil
Sheridan, J. J. Mackie and a large
chorus of handsome young ladies.
"City Sports" will be repeated this
afternoon and evening.

THE FOOT BALL WORLD.
If vou go Into the highways and by
ways of this city, and listen to the con
versation carried on between the school
boys and their elder brothers, you will
hear some strange expressions. You will
hear of "touch-downs" nnd "on side"
and niuny other queer ana foreign like
: phrases. You will hear of long runs,
j good tackles, excellent punts; for the
I foot ball season is upon us und from
1 now on until Thanksgiving day, long
; haired hoys will strut around glorify
ing in blackened eyes and strained
ankles. Truly it is a great game and a
titling substitute for the great national
game of base ball. '
The prospects fur u good first-class
representative team in this city, were
never brighter than they are this year.
Hut nevertheless no team has been
found owiutr to disinclination 011 the
part of the plavers to exert themselves
before such small audiences as greeted
the champion leum of "S5." Winning
ns it ilift. ten of the twelve games
played, und those too from some of the
best athletic- teams in the country, the
team deserved better patronage and
It is not at all surprising that the boys
uri discouraged. However there is
plenty of time yet. between this and
Thanksgiving day, to form an excellent
team. With all the old men and such
new ones as have lutely returned from
the various colleges and Schools, a
team could be picked that would equal
If not excell the one of last year.
There are a number of smaller teams
in the city, the most promising of these
being the Lackawanna Bchool team.
This team is the oldest In the city and
has been in existence for the past ten
years, lip until last year they have al
ways held the championship of the
city among the school teams, when they
were compelled to give way to the
Scranton Business College.
This year, under the tutllage of
Laurie Bliss, the noted Yale half-back,
the boys expect to wrest a victory from
the Business College Isiys and regain
their lost nreslege. Five games have
been scheduled so fur, the majority of
which will be played at Athletic Park.
Two of these games are to be played
against the old time enemv, the Hill
man school, of Wilkes-Havre. The
other three are with the Scranton Busi
ness College, the Wyoming Seminary
and Keystone Academy of Factorvville.
The hoys practice daily at Athletic
Park and under, what appears to be
rather severe coaching of Mr. Bliss, are
making rapid Improvement. A number
of good men were lost by leaving school
at the end of the term, leaving only a
few of the old men to form a nueclus
for a new team.
Fred Clnrk, '!, who has played center
rusn lor tnree years has been elected
captain and Is doing his best with the
raw material nt hnnd. Parke, a new-
man, who played on the Wilmington
School team last year, has bolstered
up the team in one of its weakest
points, namely at tackle,

COAL PRICES ADVANCING.
Freight Hates Increased and Col
lieries Are Resuming Work.
"The coul. trade Is in a betetr condl
tlon than It has been all summer.
said a prominent coal operator In talk
Ing to a Bulletin reporter today.
"Many collieries which have been
working with half their force for only
tnree uays in tne week are now run
nlng Ave days and have engaged their
full force at run time each day. If the
demand keeps on Increasing as it has
during the last month, they probably
win work six uays.
"Prices are stiff, and the demand Is
healthy. Felghts are advancing, and
are expected to be raised still further
as cold weather comes ofi. The prices
nave Deen sustainea oy some comblna
Hon of coal men. but the reported ad
vance of tl.50 a ton Is an exaggeration.
There has, however, been a raise of
about sixty-five cents In some coals,
There is a taikea-or increase in pea
coals, but it has not yet materialized
If it does come, It will probably begin
about tne miuute oi October.
"The owners of mines and collieries.
whloh have laid Idle or have been run
at a, loss, are hoping tor resumption
trade. The value of coal hi the
Philadelphia and Heading railroad
mines would be sufficient to pay a
dividend on the stock of that corpora
tion If It could be disposed of at a pro-
nt, nut tne insufficient demand during
the hard times haa kept the trade in
active." Philadelphia Bulletin.
