ROCK ISLAND. ILL
HEAT WITHOUT COAL:
SUPPLIED BY SUN'S POWER
Springfield News: The scenes of
suffering witnessed durinir the coal
famine of this winter should stimu
late inventors to solve the problem of
heating cities without coal. A gen
tleman who has Im-cii making some
observations on the coal supply of Il
linois said that, he did not expect the
price of coal to the consumer to be
less thau.it is now, but rather more.
lie declares that vast as the deposits
f coal seem to be in this vicinity
they are being worked out to a de
gree that will soon increase the diffi
culty and cost of iiiininir t an extent
that will put the price up much high
er than it is at present. In a conver
sation on this subject between this
gentleman and a stranger at the lx--land
hotel, the latter said: "It is not
t:o much to hope that some system
of heating by the simple hse of the
sun's energy will be discovered before
long that will be much cheaper, more
effective, more cleanly an 1 altogether
more durable than the use of coal. 1
don't know how it is going to be done.
but 1 think we will live to see it that
all public and private buildings will
Ik- heated in this way, and it may be
that cities will be able to collect and
distribute heat just as they do water
for a nominal charge. It would be a
grand thing to have it so. for much
suffering among the poor could be re
lieved. I have no doubt that even
streets could be so heated as to pre
vent the accumulation of ice and
snow upon them, and that in many
public places warm quarters could be
provided for those who have no
"leaving out of the question the
possibility of the coal supply running
short the question of transportation
is becoming a serious one through 1he.
tremendous increase of traffic of all
kinds over our railroads, due to the
growth of population. The invention
of some such method of adapting and
using the sun's heat as I have men
tioned would make, it possible to ob
tain the desired results at practically
the same cost in all localities, regard
less of the local conditions as to fuel
"I hope to see the inventive facul
ties of our thinkers brought to bear
upon those things which will result
in making it impossible for some men
to traffic in Hie necessities of others,
and will make it possible for all the
people, rich and jwior, to enjoy food
water, warmth and comfort practi
cally free of cost. Jt is horrible to
think that helpless women and chil
dren are freezing to death for want
or a little coal anil that men are en
abled to control the miserable dole of
fuel that they need to keep life in
their bodies and to charge prohibi
tive prices for it. I believe one of the
problems that the twentieth century
in to solve is that of bringing the ne
cessities of life, warmth, food anil
shelter within the reach of everybody.
o. I am not a socialist, only so tar as
that goes. 1 believe after we have
done that much we can find some way
of making the. miserable loafers and
tramps who want to monopolize the
good things of earth earn their board
and lodging and fire."
