NOT" QUITE SO BAD.
i . . Fearful Forebodings of a Kew Jersey Scientist Made Light of. SCOUTED UY UK. ASHBURNER. He Does Not Fear Eitlier'the Wrecking of a i-" Continent or of the Globe 'BI THE EXHAUSTION OP NATURAL GAS "The doom of "Western Pennsylvania was predicted and explained to a New York ''Herald reporter the other day by J. E. Thickston, who the Herald says "is a well known Ecicntist and astronomer living at Metuchen, N. J." "While speaking of the Johnstown horror, he said: "The news from Central Pennsylvania is awful, hut this nay be only a tery little thing compared with what may yet occur. Near and vest of the AUegbenies a great opening within the earth's crust must bo made somewhere by the escape of natural gas. Will the earth settle and till the empty places or will air pass in and thereby male it possible for the immense reser voirs of gas, stored away no one knows how far, to explode and make an upheaval? Many people believe there is gas enough un der Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio to blow the country from Lake Erie to the Mo nongahela INTO PKOMISCUOUS FRAGMENTS. "When oil -was struct at Oil Creek In 1S59. timid folks feared a collapse and a sinking of the oil field, bat that danger was obviated by water running into the wells as the oil ran out. The dreaded vacuum never came,as water took the place of the removed oil. It is not so in this case. Water is not filbng up the gas wells except to a limited extent. Wnat the outcome may be is not really a very enjoyable thing to revolve in our minds these pleasant June mora ine. "A submerged valley lined with the bones of 15.000 men, women aud children is a fearful thing in the historv of the human race, but what of that compared with a wrecked conti nent? "What of that compared with a world blown open or blown to fragments? I am not an alarmist or a sensational Wiggios. I do not believe Old Mother Earth is about to be shot into smithereens, but there may be dancer ahead in this direction, and although we frieve over the Conemaugh catastrophe, let us e thankful that there has not been a natural gas explosion out West, and that there are not two ring Instead of one set of asteroids in the material heavens." riTTSBUBG'S GEOLOGIST SMILES. A reporter of The Dispatch took the above to the "Westinghouse building yester day and had Mr. Chas. A, Ashvnrner, oi the Pennsylvania and United States Geo logical Surveys, read the clipping. He laughed and replied: "The statement that the Johnstown dis ter was as nothing compared with what may happen by the blowing upof "Western Penn sylvania and Easte.n Ohio into promiscu ous fragments through the exploitation oi our natural gas supplies is simply prepos terous. Still, this fear of what may occur in onr natural gas regions has gotten such a hold upon many intelligent people not fa miliar with the facts that it calls for the most positive condemnation. In the first place, no cavity exists under "Western Penn sylvania where natural gas is obtained of appreciable size, that is, of a size sufficiently great for the smallest insect, if other condi tion made it possible, to descend one of our natural gas wells, pass through channels in the gas reservoir rock from the bottom of this well to the bottom of an adjoining well 100 feet distant and return to the surface through the second well, and yet this same gas reservoir rock is sufficiently porons to con tain in every acre of surface under which it lies with a thickness of 100 feet, and with the gas at pressures frequently frfund be tween 25,000 000 and 40,000,000 cubic feet of natural gas. In this case the porosity of the gas reservoir rock is hardly noticeable to an ordinary eye, and about the same as the porosity of the ordinary finegrained. sandstones nsea lor Dmiaing purposes around Pittsburg. ' SOME PERSONAL EXPERIMENTS. "Some of our oil and gas sands are very much more open and some very much more compact than the case cited, and therefore contain more or less gas per cnbic foot of rock, still of the many thousands of speci mens I have examined I have never seen one with as large pores or cavities in it as one frequently observes in many of the open grained and porons sandstones and conglomerates which are being constantly nsea for structural purposes, so that it is simply absurd to think of any of the gas reservoir rocks giving way under the weight of the superincumbent strata. "Several years ago I estimated from care ful records of the production of oil wells that many of our oil sands have produced 900,000 barrels of oil per square mile of sur face, and ironi examinations made of the oil sands themselves, I believe that only one-tenth of the oil contained in the sand's can be obtained through wells, the other nine-tenths being held by capillary attrac tion in the porous sand so that in many sec tions of our oil regions the oil sands contain under one tquare mile of surface 9,000,000 barrels of petroleum. These sands vary from 20 to 50 feet thick, and it might be snpposed by many who had not investi gated the facts that in order to hold this immense bnlk of oil, that very large caves would have to exist in the oil sand, but such is not the fact since the oil sands are identical in structure and poros ity with the gas sands. An eminent Scotch geologist has recently made extensive ex periments -in the porosity of many of onr building stones and their capacity to hold water under different pressures and the re sults of his experiments prove that oil and natural gas sand beds are not exceptionally porous. AN EXPLOSION IMPOSSIBLE. "The eminent astronomer and scientist claims that if the surface of the earth in our natural gas districts does not cave in, producing a tremendous earthquake, that then the crust over the exhausted reservoirs will be blown up by air mixing with the natural gas as the reservoir becomes ex hausted. Now any one familiar with the physical conditions of our gas wells knows this to be impossible. As long as the gas wells discharge natural gas under a' pressure exceeding that of the air at the mouth of the well (about 15 pounds to the square inch) air cannot get into the gas well to mix with the gas to form an explosive mixture, much less get into the gas reser voir root from 500 to 2,000 feet below the top of the well. It requires from 9 to 14 volumes of air to one volume of natural gas to produce an explosive mixture, and long before the pressure of the gas could get so low as to permit nine volumes of air to enter the well and gas sand, with one volume of gas, both the gas sand and well will have been flooded with water, which would have scaled both the gas sand and the well, preventing the flowing out of any more natural gas until a pressure might be accumulated to exceed the pressure of the Apollinaris &THE QUEEN OF TABLE WATERS. "People cannot hearken too "earnestly to the WARNINGS already sounded by medical men . against the indiscriminate use of the jl'LLEGHENY WATER at this time - "It V. T. English said: 'It eannot-ht mid how long the water willbe'tmputt, irmay be for months'." (Pittsburg Di(ifttch, 7jne4th, 1889. "The purity of APOLLINA RIS offers the best security against the danger which are common to .most of the ordinary drinking waters." London Medical Record. riOfttXZCrtKm, Drtt'' b"ili. Wat. DtaUn. iBEWARE OF IMITATIONS water, which in such a case-would rarely take place and absolutely preventing the flowing in of any air. "The whole proposition as a basisof alarm to the residents of our natural gas districts is simply preposterous and absurd, and the sooner scientists unfamiliar with the facts abandon foolish expostulations on the sub ject the less risk they will run of drawing discredit to their proiession and ruining their reputation." SEMI-SCIENTIFIC SPECULATION. From the above it will be seen that Mr. Ashburner's sleep isn't disturbed by the Jerseyman's warning. Semi-scientists have from time to time since 1860 imagined many vain things regarding the exhaustion of petroleum. Some have held, as a result of a smattering education on physical science, that Infinity placed petroleum in the bowels of the earth to lubricate the earth's axis and that when human greed had extracted it might refuse to revolve. As the conse quence would be dire, they were excusable ior entering a protest. A street preacher, a "Christian Scientist," in 1861, with bowels bursting with compas sion for the remains of his ancestors, dilated on the heinousness of usinsr the oil of the "ante-divulians" carcasses for illuminating purposes. In his view there might be some excuse for the Parsees in using it to main tain the sacred fire, but none tor American greed which was no more excusable than the practice of the French in making can dles ont of the tallow of their ancestors found in the catacombs of Paris, a Story set afloat by some newspaper romancer about that time. fir 1 D 1 TJ'PT T 17 in to-morrow's DlS LJjAIlA JjELbEi, patch, relates in a breezy manner the trials and adventures of a young woman traveling alone.
