THE PRICE LIKELY TO BE EVEN
The Cane Ltrpelj Due to the Use
of Natural Gas The Quan
"To whit do yon tttribnte the' (io
dine in the price of coat?" queried an
Appeal man yesterday ol Mr. C. B.
"The chief catue ia undoubtedly the
revolution which has recently been
made in the character of fuel need in
the minufacteriea at Pittubura;," Mr.
Bryan replied. "Nstuial gas ia cut
ting an extensive figure. It is cheap
er, cleaner and equally aa effective,
Pittsburg csn no longer lay claim to
the rooty reputation of being the dirti
est city in the United States, but must
yield the pa'm to Cincinnati. The
cloud of smoke which has hung like a
pall over the city for se many years
lias been lifted, and Pittsburg is even
cleaner than Meniphip, which, by the
way, ia fust becoming, thinks to soft
coal, very much begtimed."
''The grade cf ronl we know as
'Pittsburg baa been uerd exclusively
in the raauufu toiieg tf that city, hm
"Yts; and natural pus, by which it
has been supplemented, is brought in
some cases foity or fifty miles in pipes.
The number of bushels consumed
reached 1,000,000 a day, and a matket
f ir that mutt now be found elsewhere.
While it may seem at first blush to be
a stra'l quantity in comparison to the
whole amount consumed, it reaches
to a consideiable dignity when it is
stated that Memphis consumes but
4,500,000 bushels a year. The price,
40 cents a barrel, is now lower than it
hai ever been in Memphis, except a
very brief perio.1, when it ran down
to 35 cents, and the end is not yet.
The indications are that it will go low
"Is the price of anthracite effected
by Pittsburg coal ?"
'No. The consumers are of a differ
ent class. Those who burn bard coa',
in this patt cf the country at least,
would continue to do so if it ran up
to a ton. Nearly all the new
houses which are being built here
now are constructed with especial
view to the ubb of anthracite. The
bate burning stove, In which it is ec
sontial, gives an even, sun-like heat,
and is free from the eoot and ashes
which fly from tie open grata on
which to.'t ccal is burned."
' Are your sales of anthracite any
greater now than they have boon,"
' Much larger. There are weeks
now when we sell aa much of it us we
fjrmeily sold in a year."

The change of gauss of all the rail
loids in the South ou the lot of June
next, which was decided upon at
meeting at Atlanta, an account of
which was given at the time, will be a
stupeniiuous undertaking. The South
em gauge has for runny years patt
oeen a source ot expense una incon
ven ence to all the railroads touth of
the Ohio and Potomac rivers, and
while the advantages of a uniform
gauge have long been eeen its adop
tion has now come t be an imnpia
tivo necessity. When the change has
been accomplished all the important
railioals in the United ttitea will cor
respond sufficiently in gauge to have
the running tear throughout the coun
try alike and trantifcrabie in every
Nearly 13.003 miles cf railroad will
be changed t9) the uniform gauge in
side of about twelve hours and without
interruption in the running of anv of
the important trains even on the day
mat toe change takes place. The
change of gauge will take place on
almost every railroad south of the Ohio
and Potonmc rivers, extanding over
13,128 miles of railway, nwie upas

The proposed Kancns City and St.
Louis Short line would net only be a
hieesing to bt. Louis and Kansas City,
but particularly u the countiea
through which it would pass. These
counties are Jackson. Lafayette, Sa
line, Howard, Boone, Callaway, Mont
gomery, Warren, ct. Uca'lea and St.
Louie, and the citizsns are all taking
a great interest in the scheme. Meet
ings have been held in several of the
counties to further the interests of the
road, and a great many wealthy men
are taking an active interest in its con
Btruction. We will hold a meeting to
the same end at Columbia on next
Tuesday, the 8th instant. The idea is
to secure subscriptions ol f .000 per
mile along the proposed route, and
there is little doubt bat it can be
done. It would be twenty five miles
shorter than any other line running
from St. Louis to Kansas City, and be
ing altogether a Missouri road there
would be no Chicago discrimination.
Bnddea Dentil of 1. M. Kins.
J. M. King, train dispatcher of the
Louisville and Nashville railroad, died
suddenly at his boarding house, on
Market street, yesterday morning, tie
was taken ill the night beiore with
colic and suffered a great deal, but the
physician who was called in left him
at daylight under the impression that
he would soon recover. At 8 o'clock
be was suddenly seized with conges
tion and died in great agony in a few
moments. He was about twenty-four
years of age and a splendid young fel-
ow. His parents reside at Allentown.

day, accompanied by two or three of
the many warm lrietms he made dur

The question of fruit retes fo: the
coming season, which agitated the
convention held at Humboldt yester
day, is being discussed all over the
As the season draws near there is
deep intereet felt regarding freight
rates on fruit this year. There is a de
termination among growers to cease
shipping by express as long as such
extortionate rates are charged. A
Chattanooga Timtt reporter yesterday
taw Mr. A. 8. Glover, Chairman of
the Transportation Committee of the
Fruit Growers' Association, and ques
tioned him concerning the prrtpects
of ratea this season, lie stattd that
from present ind cations the fruit
would be shipped by the Nafhville
and Chattanooga railroad, on a fast
fruit or special train to Cincicnsti and
Chicago. General Manager Tbomas
and General Freight Agent Knox, of
that line, have piomifed the growers
the best time and the lowest rates
possible. A meeting of the growers
will be held to-morrow, when it is ex
pected the Naabvillj roai will submit
their iaes, etc.
The Q'teen and Crescent people
have alio been approached on the
question of rate, but owing to the
fact that they are paid 60 cents ,'per
hundred by the express company for
hauling the fruit, they leave no desire
to bid for the busineee.

THE THIRD GAS COMPANY.
Iqnllable Patent a 4'taeap
ener. A gentl?man whoee name 1 ;n been
prominently associated wMi the third
gas lompauy, row forming, wus ques
tioned ymterdiy by en Aitxal r-
Eorter as to the iuo iva tnat prompted
im and his gstocifttes to go into the
gas business. He was frank enough
to reply that the motive was t make
money, and thet they relied for suc
cess upon the ownership of the right
to introduce into Memphis a cert tin
patent known as the Equitable patent
which he alleged had revolutionised
the gas industry in New York, Albany,
Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore and Stn
Francisco. The pries lad for tie
right to Memphis was very large, but
it is considered by the purchasers
cheap in view of what is claimed for
it, which is that under its operation
gfB can be fnrniahed of twice the
initiating power now nsual at half tLe
present cott. In support cf this claim
the gentlerrni interviewed furnished
the reporter with an extract from
the New York Sun of February 8th,
of which the following is a corj' : "Ten
years ago the New York public paid
an average of 12 60 for 15 candle gas.
while it pays now an average of il OH
f ir a 25-iaidle and in the case cf the
Equitable company for a 32 -candle gas.
Now, if it be taken lull conaideiaion
tl a, a 30 candle power gas gives not
twice as much light an a gs of 1 5-cnii-die
power, but nearly f iur times as
much, the New Yorker cf to day gets
about four ti tries as much illuminating
power for $1 75 as he did ten years ago
for $2 60, and should not grumble if
the companies supplying hira with
the commodity makes a lair pi oli ton
a large capital invested by them, and
constantly subjected to the fiercest
tub igrjiTauLE patents.
As a matter of course, it was the
competition between new ando'd pro
cesses of manufacturing gas that im
proved its quality end brought down
both the ccst of its production and the
price paid by the consumer. The
Equiiahla Gas Company wai the
lender of this movement. By mea s
of the cheapened and improved gne
producing piocess, of which itisthn
patentee for the whole of the I'niUd
Statc-H, it was put in a position to fight
the old companies in every cily in the
Union. Although yet in iti infancy,
the concern hai derived largs proll:s
from the New York company, and s
engaged in a fiorce contest with the
o'd companies of Baltiu ore ard Chi
cago. It hai begun work in Albany,
Detroit and San Frnociteo, and in
negotiating for charters at Newark,
Washington, Boston, Cincinnati and
Syracuse. The names of tho capital
intts interested in the young concern
are alone sufficient to guaran
tee a success to the enterprise. Men

Fry, president of the Bank of New
York, and a score of their friends, do
not go into an enterprise unless there
ia a chance of making big money. The
chances here are based upon two or
three cardinal points, the lirst is
that after water, g-.s is tho mott im
portant commodity of ewry ciynizsd
Battlement, be it a villate or a metrop
olis. The second is that out of several
hnndred gas companies exittiDg in
this country there art only three petty
ones that have ever "busted," and the
third (as to the Equila'dn exclusively )
ia that it sells its ptttont to any city,
either for cash or for bonds and stocks,
and handles the seen rites. In thin
way wo arn likely to Hee some day gs

looking inio the subject of gas in this
country, and finds the average price
paid here f jr the illnminant to be

This, says our worthy contemporary.

The parlors of the Christian church
were tax ;d to their fullest capacity
last evening when a reception was
tendered to their new pat tor, the Rev.
J. B. Briney, by the congregation.
Nearly all of the prominent members
of the church were present, besides
several leading citizens not members.
Mr. Briney was given a cordial wel

good fellowship established which will
be ol tbe greatest aid to the minister
in the work he has nndertiken. Ke
freshrasnts in the greatest abundance
were royally served, and the company
was charmed with delightful music
by Miss Marie H'tzfeld. Mr. Harry

one of the most delightful of tbe kind
which the Christian Church, noted tor
its congeniality and brotherly feeling,
has ever known ond admirably served
its purpose the introduction of the
Kev. Mr. Briney. Armed with a ripe
experience, with a rich, sonorous
voice, a commanding fi.ure and a face
on wnich the noblest sentiments are
reflected. Mr. Briney bids fair to keep
np the high standard which the Chris
tian Church takes to much pride in
preserving in its pulpit, lie was born

A cloud of tobacco smoke poured
out into the hallway when the Aei giL
m an opened the door of President Had
den's raoctam yesterday evening and
looked in upon the tbreechoicespirits
who compose tbe Polire and Fire
Commission. "Come in I" cried Capt,

through ihe cloud of smoke. "Me

Aa iojd aa there wai a full stop in
the argument Col. Montgomery, with
his face as grave as he can make a
countenance so genial, said: '-There
is another question concerning the
growth of tbe city in which I suppose
you feel quite as much interest as in
the matter of a city bank. 1 refer to

"Precisely. I counted on a big
thing, but it is growing out of all pro-
Kortiun. It seems to me that all the

received a letter this mornirg fo:n

though he had entered most of the
young ones At Lexington, if we could
give him stable-rojm. 1 telegraphed
him to bring them and we would tin'
accommodation'. I was out at the
track this mom ng and Green Mortis'
bowed me a t eh gram from Harrigan,
at Latonia, saying that the track there
was in fearful shape, and that if
h'S ftriog of thirteen could
be stabled here he would bring them
at once. Morris tslegraphed him tj
tome aneal and bring all hin friends.
Our tiu-'k is in superb condition. A

One of the trainers called my atten

me how clean the hocf was.
He said he never eaw any

keenly disappointed him, his faith is

By invitation of the Masonic fruter
nity, Mr. James Garden, the well
known actor, at present a member of
Madame Janansrhek's company, lec
tured last night at the Masonic Tem
ple to a large, reliued and critical au
dience of ladies and geiitleineu, com
posed of the beat elements of Mem
phis society, embracing representa
tives of all tbe learned professions, in
cluding tho clergy, Madame Janxu
schek and ber ugen!, Mr. Simmouds,
occupied prominent places near the
platform. At 8 o'clock sharp Mr.
Henry Lynn advanced to the front
of the platform, and after a few hep
pily woul ad remarks of introduction
by the latter gentlemen, Mr. Garden
gracefully bowed his audience and an-
iiounc.dhis BUt'jct, rs. l ain." Mr.

years rf age, of potlly build and gifted
With a lull, clear and penetrating
voice, r.hicb ho usea with tiled ami
skill. Ilia lecture was a series of
word-phHiiu-s descriptive of tho ca
reer of Paul, interspersed with selec
tions from Scripture, tLat Mr, Cardeu
recited with flue diamatic ef
fect. Tho stibjjct mutter of
Mr. Carden'a kcturo proves him to
be a clo:o student, a caitful thinker,
and an ek quent writer. Among other
glowiLgly-svorded paaeswita which
the lec ure abounds, the frllowiug is
s-lected at random:
The genuine heroism of St. Paul is
displayed in the three apostolic jour
neys, of which we have so interesting
a record in tbe Acts. The age in
which he lived during these mission
ary peregrinations as ona of the most
remarkable in human experi
ence. Imperial Rome was mis
tress of the world, and all
the great wonders of art from the
Acropolis of Athens to tbe Coliseum
of tbe city of Komolus were in perfect
condition. The dreamy beauty of the
Parthenon still attracted the votaries
of Minerva, while Diana had her
shapely marble shrine (one o! the
wonders of the world) at Kphesus, in
Asia Minor. Capltoline Jove was yet
the thenderer of Olympus, and Venus
had not quitted her Paphian or
Italian retrta'a; tbe world gloried and
exulted in those idealizations of hu
man pawione, which scon led to the
grossest idolatry, the basest sensuality,
and the perpetration of the most hei
nous crimes. A terrible military des
potism maintained subjection if not
order with an iron baud. Tbe very
atmosphere of great cities was satur
ated with vice and corruption, and
three of the greatest human monsters
that ever lived the Cieiars: Tiberius,
Caligula and Nero, ruled over the des
tinies of the empire."
The lecture abounded in resounding
periods, of which the anove is a speci
men. Mr. Carden is an elocutionist
of unusual power and skill, and it can
be imagined with what thrilling
power the glowing language of Paul,
notably that composing chanter xiii,
Corinthians, beginning with ' Though
I speak witT. the tongues of men and
of angels, and have no, charity, I am
become as sounding brass and tinkling
rymbal," which was delivered by Mr.
Carden with a fervor and power and
beauty of expression that held the au
dience spellbound. At the conclusion
of Mr. Garden's lecture be was en
tbus'astlcally applauded, and many of
the audience came up to him, both
lad es and gentlemen, and expressed
their great pleasure at having been
permitted to enjoy the intellectual
treat set before them.
