greatest fait to be overcome in getting
people to use liquid fuel was preju
dice One gentleman said ho knew
all the advantages to bo gained, but
be would not adopt It because tho ad
vantngea were so palpable, and until
he haw some disadvantages he could
not proceed. He (Sir Samuel) could
say emphatically thero woro no illsnd
vantages to liquid fuel whatever." The
geiitlenuin who mado this remark Is
president of n company having twen-tj'-flvc
steamers burning oil.
The United Stntes transport Stcado
uscB eighty tons of coal a day to mako
an nverngo of eleven knots, for which
the Government pnjs $8.50 per ton.
Allowing for sixty days' steaming to
Manila hud return it requires 4800
tons of coal, costing $41,000. If sho
used nil sho would burn 19,200 barrels
or 2955 tons. Allowing four barrels of
oil to equal ono ton of coat, this oil
would cost nt $1 a barrel $19,200, sav
ing In fuel alono $21,800.
Dr. Denno finds that thero are fortj''
four veBsels ot this port that aro
burning fuel oil Instead of conl. He
predicts that within two j-enrs thero
will not bo a slnglo vessel regularly
leaving tho poit of San Francisco mak
ing steam with anything but oil. Ho
estimates that the displacing' ot tho
2,000.000 tons of conl annunlly Import
ed Into California by tho uso of oil
would result In n saving per annum of
$12,000,000. at tho rate at $t! per ton
for tho coal. An Interesting featuro
of Dr. Deauo's report Is found In a list
of tho vessels balling from the port of
San Francisco which have received
permits from Supervising Inspector
