delivered over to the sheriff. Farley hta
busily endeavored to find Tweed, but un
successfully. Y eater lay noon Tweed'a

several officials are on the lookout for
Tweed, who Is, donbtlsss, in some hiding

The statement of the New York Tri

Tweed, seems to have been baaed on the

bare given notification to tbe sheriff of

also thst neither Hasting nor Jay Gould
would attempt to pass tbe examination
required and justify In tbe sums which

TO GAS CONSUMERS.
The Mea has gone abroad tbat the Mem phis
Ousllghi c nipauy was ready u abandon what
is termed tut; nat htba process in the manu
facture of gas. Ttisrs Barer was a greater
fallacy.
When s consider the material uaexi the
sui:al oi. of petroleuaat , scarcely merchant
able for any otner u-w the rtcnnets of the ga

lit-
economy with which It can be pnniucvMi
am use must uc regara-M ajanauvsnceu mv--ment
In pas manufacture, which should re
cci vs the aLtenUon of both practical and sci
entific men
We have found It best to use this process In
conjunction with the manufacture of ooal gas :
First, because we have a market for tbe resi
dual prod nets, coke and tar, at fair prices.
?Second, because our works and apparatus
were constructed for the distillation of bltu
mlnoiiseoal. The late complaints about the quality of gas
supplied to the city grew oatof the fact that
on account of the stock of naphtha running
short, and some changes belLg made at tbe
works, the gas in the holders for a few night
was nearly pure ooal gas, unite equal to tbe
standard formerly produced oy this company.
The change from the use of nsphtha was as
perceivable and marked as if tbe burners bad
undergone a partial eclipse, and complaints
a natural as If one accuat"md to glanse had
attempted to lay them aside, suddenly.
By a slight chauge made lu tbe connections
wunour naphtha gas meter admitting only
pure napotha gas into the mixer, we can with
ease inject such a quantity of this neb. Ino
dorous and disinfectant gas into the holders
as to immediately overcome any objections a
to the quality of the gas throughout the cu .
uotonly rsiHngtbe llfumlnatu g power to any
given standard, bnt absorbing to a great extent
the trace of sulphuretted nydrotten which
always Impart a bac odor to the best coal
gss.
This we do not claim as adteoorery, bat the
. x oerimental test of tbe useof pure naphtha
W most Interesting and satisfactory.
On the evening of the auth, about four
o'clock, we had succeeded in getting ready foi
trying the effect on a large, scale, of what is
known in chemistry as gasejous diffusion with
out regard to ajbectftc gravity. Hot the uni
form iiiurmingling of gases, for that was a
kLuiD scientlac fact, but the time required
for a complete mixture of gases through ths
nalns (if extended; twentyelght miles in
length.
The holders contained about 17u,0l)0 feet ot
gas, with a make of about fifteen to eighteen
thousand feet per hour, when we commenoed
turning In the pur aauuhagas trunmngonly
two benches oi Ss and making at the rate of
about e:gbt thousand cubic feet per hour. The
photometer Sugg's make, London.) measured
the coal gas in ths mains at tourteen candle
power. As aoon ss we observed from the test 1'gbls
the naphtha gas fllimg the pipes, we noted
the can d le oowur of the gas tn the street mams
to begin rapidly and steadily to ascend, and
In twenty minutes more we found It wss
uighteec candle-power.
lioing Immediately to the office In the heart
of tbe city, to note tbe effect there, we found
everyone enquiring what bad occurred, and
surprised at the Increased brilliancy ot the
light.
Thus in twenty minutes the Illuminating
standard of coal gas, fourteen caudle-power,
was raised to eighteen.
By no other process known to modern sci

duced so rapidly. In the ordinary manufac
ture of coal gas. complaint as to quality can
only be remedied by a gradual process, which
generally oome too late to meet complaints.
By this method alone Is the effect Immediate
We can. therefore, assure tbe) public that
hereafter any just complaints ss to the Illum
inating quality of the gas furnished the city
can and shall be remedied promptly not in
one locality only, but threughout the extent

ever, weoanuotand do not undertake to make
gas llow through pipes fllied with scale or rust.
