The recorder's annual message re
views comprehensively the executive
conduct or city affairs during the first
year of llio city's existence under the
second-class charter. These details arc
instructive, as showing how the new
charter works, and every citizen should,
therefore, read them. Naturally while
methods of procedure are new, the at
tention of the city executive officials
has been directed mainly to establish
ing foundations. These are well along
toward completion, and in the coming
year wo may expect achievements Us
ing higher in the public view. That
which has been done lias been carefully
and economically done, along the lines
of business prudence; and that which
remains to be done will be approached
in the same spirit.
The Petroleum Industry.
IF CREDENCE can be given to a
fair proportion of the reports of
new discoveries in oil in various
parts of the west and southwest
and certainly there have been some
wonderful developments in this direc
tion within the past few months the
question of replacing coal as fuel, long
considered in a speculative way, may
Dr. Paul Dvorkovitz, a famous Rus
sian oil expert and editor of the Petrol
eum Review, recently visited the Amer
lean oil fields and' in his Journal record
ed his observations. Those which are
more especially 6f piesent interest to
us relate to the possibilities of substi
tuting crude petroleum for bituminous
coal in the bunkers of the trans-Atlantic
steamships. Dr. Dvorkovitz came
over on the Lucanlo, which consumed
on the voyage 3000 tons of coal. To
handle this fuel and maintain a proper
steaming strength required the employ
ment in the stokeholds oflSO men. At
night speed hud to be reduced, not be
cause of danger but to give these over
worked inhabitants of the ship's in
ferno some little chance to rest. Bear
ing these facts in mind, wo are pre
pared to follow the doctor In his de
ductions concerning this matter.
"By the substitution of liquid fuel
for coal the number of stokers would,"
says he, "be reduced to a maximum of
about twenty, while the work of even
these would be greatly lightened; in
fact, there would be practically noth
ing more to do than to watch the
burners to see that they did not be
come choked up. The temperature of
the stokeholds would also be .much more
bearable, and there would be no need
to load the bunkers -with 3,000 tons of
coal, as 1.B00 tons of oil would see the
trip out. Moreover, the loading of this
quantity of coal occupies, as a rule at
least three days, -whereupon the neces
sary amount of oil could .be taken on
board in a few hours.
"After inspecting carefully all other
arrangements in the stokeholds In con
nection with the boilers, etc., I came to
the conclusion that even at the price of
three to ona against coal, oil would be
cheaper. In addition to this, the ves
sel would be able to make the voyage
in a ehorter time. Speed is, of course
a very important factor on the Atlantic,
especially aa the new German boats
are malting very rapid crossings. The
English steamers, in order to maintain
their superiority, must take advantage
of every facility to secure this end, and
there can be no doubt that the intro
duction of liquid fuel would be of con
siderable assistance in this direction.
"What such an introduction of liquid
fuel would mean to the oil industry I
will Just Indicate by taking two com
palnes the Cunard and White Star
lines. These two companies Jointly
make over 200 voyages per year, using
fofr each voyage 3,000 tons of coal, or
allt-600,000 tons for the year. If olj
iajBUbatltuted' for this, It means that
30ftO0Otons would bo required for the
purposes" of. these two lines only. My
rca'dSra'.'may safely assume, also, that
If jire'two "companies Adopted pe
tr&wrj"ifltve?3 would have to follow."
Thb'fdregoing hints at one probable
outlet for the growing American oil
ylfild'tIii a recent issue the Western
oiOJews notes some of the other new
usjT to,, which this product is being
successfully dedicated; Thus, fop ex
ample, In France a large quantity of
petroleum la being used In the manufuc
tuWCot petroleum brlcquettes for fuel
purgKJse": These bilcquettes weigh only
h'8Eiai!rnuch as coal of equal volume
a'WUfclvo from only two to three per
pent, residue, This form of fuel pro
duces no slug, docs not "run" when
HgUfeii, keeps its form like coal, burns
wiWfoUt odor and without smoke, may
be-Sfcretted with Impunity, losing none
of JRb properties, consumes without ex
ploijons or sparko mid yet with a
brUfht und long Home, may bo kept
Indefinitely without deterioration, and
one ton of It will do the work of more
than three tons of ordinary bituminous.

It In much chenper thnn creosote, and
Is said to preserve any kind of wood
for n lifetime. For smelting purposes
oil Is also destined to be Used extensive
ly for fuel. A recent report Buys that
enormous deposits of hot ore In Cali
fornia have been allowed to lcninln
In their Virgin condition because of the
fact that there has been no fuel at hand
with which they could become econ
omically Joduccd. The discovery of
petroleum for fuel purposes has solved
the long-perplexing problem, tmd Iron
development on a lnrgo scale will re
sult. In short, the ability of the market to
absorb all the oil that can (low scorns
to bo established beyond question. The
experience of California Is instructive
In this connection. Only n. few yenrs
ago California's consumption of oil was
fiO.OOO barrels a year. Then came the
California oil discoveries, and last
year the golden state consumed T.HOO,
000 bnirelo, which was half a million
barrels In excess of the state's pioduc
tlon. Nor have profits fallen. In Cali
fornia lust year Si companies paid In
dividends $1,301,000, und It Is claimed
by conservative observers that the
dividend distribution on California oil
Will this year exceed ?l.r00,000.
Wo hardly need to say that there nre
oil gambles which, like the gold gam
bles of '40 and the Klondike, had better
be viewed warily by those who lack
the means of informing themselves re
liably. But on the other hand, the oil
industry has a solid and substantial
foundation, Just now offers exceptional
opportunities for Intelligent develop

HERE is an interesting little
incident in the late John
Gibbon's story in the Cen
tury this month of Lee's sur
render at Appomattox. General Gib
bon, It may be necessary to note, was
one of the Union officers who accom
panied General Grant when lie went to
the McLean residence in Appomattox
to arrange with General Robert E. Lee
for the latter's submission to the
North's superior force, and, with two
other officers, had charge of arranging
the details. General Gibbon thus de
scribes the incident to which we refer!
"Receiving on the 11th (of April) a
request from General Lee's adjutant
general for a small escort for the gen
eral for a few miles on Ills way to
Richmond, it was sent, and, the next
day, while seated in the McLean house,
I received a message baying that Gen
eral Lee was at the door and would
like to see mo. I told the messenger
to ask him in, but he came back to
say that the general declined to dis
mount. Going to the door I found Gen
eral Fitz Lee seated on ills hoi.se and
looking, I thought, somewhat uneasy,
lie had been a cadet under me at AVest
Point and I had not seen him for years.
As I looked at him, a vision of the past
came up before me, and I could only
think of a little rollicking fel
low dressed in cadet gray, whoso
jolly songs and gay spirits were
the life of his class. My salu
tation of 'Hello, Fitz! Get ofC and
come in,' seemed to put him at his ease
once more, and brought him to his
feet. He came into the house and told
his story. Early on the 9th, seeing that
surrender was inevitable, he had, with
his cavalry force, made his escape and
pioceeded toward Lynchburg; but be
coming convinced that the war was
virtually ended, ho rode to Farmvllle
and reported to General Meade. He
was advised to return to Appomattox
and be paroled. He became my guest
for the night, and, lying on the floor,
slept as soundly as a child, after, as
he said, having had no sleep for a
week. Nothing could dampen his high
spirits, and with us he seemed to re
joice that the war was over. With 'a
glim humor he took from his pocket
a five-dollar Confederate note, and
writing across its face 'For Mis. Gib
bon, with the compliments of Fitz Lee,'
he said: 'Send that to your wife, and
tell her it is the labt cent I have in the
And this same Fitz Lee is now a re
tired bilgadler-geneilil of the United
States army and u possible and, wo
hope, successful candidate in the sense
that his name is being considered for
the position of first American minister
to the lepubllc or Cuba. Truly, time
works wondrous changes.
Miss Stone has resisted nil the offers
of the magazines to tell In print the

will want to hear to m.iko It profitable'

and the twenty-ono members (darted
upstairs to do things. Just ns soon as
thoy got Into the council chamber
filings began to bo done.'
The seventeen Democrats wore In
their scats and Mr. Calpln was looking
smilingly down from the chair-nun's
scat. Tho Republican members took
their scats and called upon Assistant
City Clerk Morris to call the roll. Tho
latter demanded the roll books from
Clerk Lynott nnd the latter refused to
give It up. Mr. Morris had n pad pre
pared with tho names of tho members
written on It and as ho opened this
Alleged Chairman Calpln sang out to
"Call the roll, Mr. Lynott."
Alleged Clerk Lynott began to Call
the roll and Clerk Morris began to call
the roll nlso. The two stopped for a
moment and looked around at one an
other only lo turn around again and
i:v. It. MORHIS,
Assistant City Clerk, Who Wa Elected Cleric of
keep on calling until the list of mem
bers had been exausted. The Demo
crats answered present to alleged Clerk
Lynotl's call and the Republicans
answered to Clerk Morris' call.
Both Chairmen on Duty.
While the Republicans were electing
Messrs. Robathan and Morris as tem
porary chairman and clerk, the Demo
crats were having a committee ap
pointed to wait on select council and
announce that common was ready to
meet in joint session. One man would
be making a motion to Alleged Chair
man Calpln and another to Temporary
Chairman Robathan at one and the
same time. Indescribable tumult and
disorder prevailed. Mr. Robathan
was presiding at a table immediately
underneath the desk at -which Alleged
Chairman Calpln was seated.
The latter was for being firm
but he finally leaned back with a
twinkle in his eye and remaiked:
"Well if this thing amuses the Repub
licans I think I'll let them go on with
The Republicans did go on and elect
ed Mr. 'Robathan as temporary chair
man by twenty-one votes. Mr. Morris
was elected clerk by twenty votes.
David Evans was recorded as voting
for Mr. Robathan but failed to vote
for Mr. Morris. Without his vote,
however, the Republicans had a clear
majority of one because Mr. Thomas
voted for both Robathan and Morris.
Immediately following Mr. Roba
than's election the following newly
elected members were sworn in: Second
ward, John Henry, David Evans, T. J.
Snowdan and J. B. Casterline; Fourth
ward, W. W. Evans, E. W. Evans and
13. W. Searing; Tenth ward, AVilllam
Knoepfel; Sixteenth ward, Theodore
Alleged Chairman Calpln had ap
pointed Messrs. Galvln, Graf and Mc
Greevy as a committee to wait on se
lect council and inform that body that
common council was ready to meet in
joint session. Chairman Robathan ap
pointed Messrs. Harvey, W. W. Evans
and Calpln ns a similar committee.
Both waited on Chairman Oliver, of
select, but neither was officially recog
nized, according to the latter. Mr. Chit
tenden moved that the select council go
Into joint session, but the Democrats
got the idea into their heads that
Chairman Robathnn's committee had
been recognized und the other ignored,
and so -they voted tho motion down.
Both councils then adjourned.
Immediately after the meeting, Chair
men Oliver and Robathan got together
and prepared a call for a joint meeting
on Wednesday night, to hear the re
corder's message and elect a city clerk.
Lynott Kept the Books.
Alleged Cleric Lynott kept a tight hold
on the minute and roll books of the
common council, aim when last seen
was going downstairs with them.
Whether or no! he took them outside
the municipal building is unknown.
Alleged Chairman Calpin'.s contention
Is that it is not necessary to have a
yea and nay vote to elect a chairman
and that If a majority Is present, as
shown by tho roll-call at the beginning
of the meeting, it is proper to u&sumc
thnt such a majority is present when
thu chairman Is elected,
Tho reorganization of select council
was rather a tame and colorless affair.
Tho supporters of J. J, McAndrew, tho
Democratic candidate for the chair
manship, had practically given up the
fight after they sized up tho situation,
1), W, Vitughan wus elected temporary
chairman without any opposition. Mr.
McAndrew's nuiiie was placed In nomi
nation by J. J, Costello, who opposed
him in the caucus, and Joseph Oliver's
name was placed In nomination by Mr.
demons, Things looked splendid for
Mr. McAndrew's election until the
Twentieth ward was called out and
Mnluchl L. Coyne, tho successor of
AVilllam G. O'Mulley, said "Oliver."
Then the Democrats knew that the
gentleman from the Fifteenth was
elected, and when the Twenty-first
ward was called out, Mr. McAndrew
voted for Mr, Oliver, Insteud of for him
self, thus paying him a graceful com
pliment. The vote was as follows:
JleAi.ihew If, Costello, Jteimn, Mdlowy, Mel.

New Members Sworn In,
After the election of a chairman, the
following new members were sworn In;
Second ward, John Von Bergen; Tenth
ward, John Nagell; Twelfth ward, John
P. Qulnnan; Fourteenth ward, Thomas

Twentieth wnrd, Mulachl I,. Coyne.
Tho board of city assessors met for re
organization yesterday afternoon and
re-elected Philip Illnslund as president,
and Jay O. Bcamans as secretary, The
meeting was beautifully harmonious,
and the cigars were passed out to visit

It was moving day In the city con

who has served ob city controller for
three years past, turned over tho keys
