Mr. D. G. Scofieid, President,- October 7, 1915..
.Standard Oil Company,
''San Francisco, California.
Dear Mr. Scofieid:
I want to call your attention tb'the later reports of
the investigation following the recent disaster at Ardmore, Okla.
It develops now that the tank car which caused the exolosion and
resulted in the death of more than fifty people was filled with
gasoline made by compressing natural gas, and known as compressor
gasoline, not a straight run refinery product like our Red Crown
gasoline, which, as you know, is a pure product of crude oil
Compressor gasoline is very unstable and very "gassy "
. and the vapors ignite so readily that there is altays danger of
fire or explosion in handling it. The Ardmore shipment, it seems,
was intended to be mixed with low gravity gasoline in the same
manner as is done by some manufacturers in California, and the
product is known to the trade as a blended or mixed gasoline and
is offered quite extensively to motorists in some sections. Even
when compressor gasoline is blended in this manner' it is still
very "gassy" and dangerous.
This unfortunate disaster
ed out the wisdom of the action of
tie over a year ago in deciding to
line plant which we installed at Ne
to determining whether it was safe
ship the resulting gasoline to our
re-running. At that time we publis
of July, 1914, a statement announci
the reasons therefor,
I believe, in justice to the public and to ourselves,
we should take some moans of informing motorists and all those
handling it the risk they aro running in using this dangerous,,
Very truly yours,
Japanese Cruiser Oft
Lahaina This Week
Considerable speculation wns caused
early in tho week by the appearance
of a war vessel and two merchant ves
sel consorts off tho port of Lnhalna.
Tho war craft proved to ho tho Japa
ncso cruiser Asama, which went
ashore In Turtle Bay, on tho west
Mexico coast some months ago, and
which was later taken to Vancouver
for repnlrs. The accompanying ves
sels are evidently colliers.
Tho cruiser rcmnlned off tho lee of
this Island most of tho week. On
Wednesday she fired n salute of 21
guns In celebration of tho coronation
of tho Japanese emperor. It is under
stood that the vessel has been taking
on coal In tho smooth waters, and In
