In a lecture before the Society of
Chemical Industry in London, Prof. W.
II. Perkin of Manchester University
described a process for the production
of rubber in the laboratory which has
been widely commented upon in tech
nical and other papers in the United
It was stated by the lecturer that the
synthetic production of rubber offers
the probability of a profit at a price
of 60 cents per pound, with- a possi
bility of its production at 24 cents per
pound or less. There has been keen
rivalry between England and- Germany

and priority of discovery is claimed by
each country. It waa ) contended by
Prof. Perkta that the English had an

months, i, d -:

In the judgment of the London Times
Dr. Matthews has made a distinct ad- !

substance resembling rubber resulting
from nature's subtle forest alchemy,

too high to permit of any doubt being
cast upon his interpretation of his im
