It was re psated last sevuing to a capcity au diloe,.r Mr, onley's history is' of spe. 0t 'l)terestU as as admirably fitted him for the w ork anabih he is dole 'at the piesent time. He attended school at Minnesota university and was, greatly Intlrested in chemistry. When le let, school Mr. Conley did not Madestep hard Work, but accepted a place s fireman on the Northern Pa cific. He was promoted to engineer and served in that capacity for over five years previous to his entering the department of instruction. His col lege course gave him the theoretical training, and the time spent on an engine taught himr the practical side of the work. Speaking of his work and what It means,. Mr. Conley said: "A railroad's coal bill Is the second largest item In its expenses. Labor comes first in the list and coal sec opd. If we can save one per cent of the money expended for coal, we will save approximately $79,000 for the railroad company in one year. We es timati that we can reduce the coal consumption 10. per cent. The men take a great interest in the lectures and in reducing the amount of coal consumed on their engines. We had one case where the engineer and fire man counted every scoop of coal put in the firebox and made a report pn the saving effected. The lectures seem to Interest the men and 'wo are ob tlning good results from our efforts along this line." The Lecture. At 2:80 o'clock yesterday afternoon Mr. Conley commenced his lecture on "The Chemistry of Combustion." He started by saying that the men on the Northern Pacific were as good as the men on any railroad. The lectures, he said, were given with an idea of im proving them along economical lines. He then gave a few statlitics in re gard to the large amount of money that could be saved by pcfentlflc hand. ling of fuel. He said 'that the theo retical side alone did not amount to much, but that, coupled with practical experience. it proved a great aid in keeping down the expense of fuel. Mr. Conley then began the main part of his lecture. He showed the composl tion of coal and demonstrated the fact that coal itself is a compound, and as such, would not burn; but that break ing down the compound caused the liberation of elements- which would. Mr. Conley. then conducted a few chemistry experiments. "He made oxy gen and hydrogen and explained their qualities and chemical affinities. He showed that oxygen must come into contact with the fuel. He called the men's attention to the fact that when they put in a large amount of coal their pointer dropped back a few notches. He told the men what the chemical composition of coal is, and described what happened to each ele ment in the compound. He showed that gases liberated in the combustion processes were of a light color and then asked the men what caused the' black smoke so often seen coming from the stacks. He described to the men how, unless there be a plentiful supply of oxygen in contact with the fuel, only a portion of the carbon is ox!dized and the remainder passes off untusued and eauises the blank mnoke. The Waste in Units. Mr. Conley next took up the Brit, Ish thermal units and descrlbed whal this standard of heat was. He showed the difference in thermal units be tween a scoop of coal properly burned and one burned without a. sufficieni supply of oxygen. Properly burned, : certain amount of coal will produce 14.500 thermal units. Improperly burned, it rill give but 4.500 unite (Continued on Page Eight) iMERAL AND THERE AR (' INVITAI4tONS W. O..

Cannon to this city, the need for such an effective and in structive lecture as le is giving throughout the country, cannot be over-emphasised. Twenty-four states in this country today report Mormonism among their populatibn. Mormon missionaries are working all the time not only in phe United States but in Canada and Eng land. Both the press and the pulpits are waking up to the new national peril. The pastor of the Presbyterian church at Henry, Ill., in a sermon dealing with somie of the perils now facing the United States, mentioned Mormonism as one of the leading ones and spoke of the quiet way in which Mormon missIonaries are working in all parts of the country. Mr. Cannon comes as the sixth num ber of the university lecture course, and will speak at the Harnois theater Friday evening. His subject will be, "The Mormon Kingdom of Today." Reserved seats for single admission to this number may be had at the theater.
