Few anuouuconiunta in pnicti
o.il BoioncB of rt'cent yours havo
boon calculated to oxcito bo much
iutcrost us ttiut made tlio other
diy that the problem of diroct
conversion into electricity had
been solved, says tho Ohicngo
Tribune. Tlio nnnounaomeut came
itlmost uimultinoously in this
country sunt in G iminy-in Ger
many from an eminent chemist
th it the tiling c.mld bo douo, and,
charactoristicnlly, in this country
from an olootrician of high stand
ing that it hail been done. Dr.
Gohi'ii, n Germ-in ohomist of
ioiutatiou, lias been experiment
ing ut the problem fur sotno time,
mid as a result of his researches
announced u short timo ago his
bt!ioftli:it it would be possible
to transform coal i'lto electricity
directly. The samo mouth Dr.
"William V. Jncquos, an oiectri
ciau of tho Bell Telephone com
Jinny, filed lottors of patent upon
n jirocess accomplishing exactly
the Riimu rosult.
Jti.it what all this moans was
best put in u lecture by Prof.
Oi.lw.ild two years ago, when ho
Slid: ''Had we a coll in which
electrio.il cuorgy was nroducod by
tho direct oxidation of carbon,
with an niitput ipprnachii) tho
thooretioul, we should be on tho
brink of an industrial revolution
compiled with which tho inven
tion of tho stenm engine sinks
This is putting tho case strong
ly, but it is, nowrtiiolosa, to n
large iiiwanre tree.
Ap nhrmst ovfiyouo nt all
iicquaintod with tlio subject
I nows, tho ainouut of actual work
(hat is got out of a pound of coal,
burned iu an ordinary steam on
g ne, is ubs irdly small compared
with tho total amount of power
residout in tho coal. The finest,
triple-oxpunsion engine on ono of
our groat ocean liners, which pro
bably lealizcs the highest efli-
0 onoy known nt tho present time,
secures only about Id per cent, of
tho theoretical eflicioncy of burn
ing coal. An ordinary steam en
gine docs not roulize over 7 por
cont. Tho remaining 90 or more
por cent, is absolutely lost
Furthermore, in oidor to got
tho potential enorgy of coal into
n form where it is easily utiliz.iblo
commercially involvesstill further
loss and wasto. All the power
that is consumod iu running the
dynamo is so much enorgy thrown
nwuy. A table recontly niop.ired
showing tho wot kings of sovoral
hundred eloctrio light plants in
tho United States disclose tho
f ot that the large plants of tho
very finest equipment scoured
only nbout G por cent, in actual
-work or electricity of tho po
tential of tho co.il, and that tho
smaller plants only secured about
f2 por ooht. All told, it is pro
fa ible that tho nverngo for the
whole country is less than fivo
Now, if a way could be found to
reverse these proportions approxi
mately, it is easy to Reo what an
industrial revolution would ro
sult, and Dr. Jucquos of Boston
beliovos that ho hus douo about
this. Ho hoB devised a process
01 singular simplicity, generating
im eleetrio current direct from
coal, or rather from coke, and in
'n series as high as 87 per cent, of
n theoretical efficiency of tho coal
used. This, of course, was ex
ceptional, but Dr. Jacques belitvos
lie will soon bo ublo to produce
electricity commercially for some
whore bftwoen one fiffo and one
tenth its present cost.
Put in tho very simplest way,
Dr. Jacques' process is this:
Taking a qunntit' of coko, ho
rcduci'R it io a powder, adds a
little wntor, j'nms it into a cylindor,
nnd makes a big round stick of
carbon that looks a g'vd deal like
a giant fire cracker or a btiok of
carbon for an electro arc light
vory much enlarged. Thin stick
of carbon ho 6iispeidH in a
cylindrical iron pot containing an
electrolyte of melted caustic sodu.
