mmmBBBMSum THE PrTTSBUBG , DISPATCH, SATTJBL7AY, - JTJNE":;6, .'l89l' ! SMOTHERED IN SOOT. Ben Yenue Residents Kick Against Belching Smokestacks. THEY THREATEN TO GO INTO COURT. Superintendent George Mce Again Promises to Remedy the Evil. ALL VEGETATION MAT BE DESTEOTED There is a smokestack in Two Mile "Gun valley, at Ben Venue station, which is the bete noir of the residents for miles around. This stack conducts the smoke from the Du quesne Traction Company's power house into the outer air, and distributes it accord in to the direction of the wind and with perfect impartiality in and around the frame dwellings of the residents of Bloomficld on one side, the more pretentious dwellings of the Winebiddie avenue people on the other, and, on the opposite hill, sends dense clouds of black smoke sailing over the neatly kept lawns and invading the handsomely fur nished villas of the residents of Ben Venue. This stack is so high as to be on a level with the windows of the houses on the hill, and just as the wind blows are the people of this district disinterestedly treated io a deluge of smut and vapor, which is de scribed as being outrageous. May Apply for an Injunction, The residents of Ben Venue have con cluded not to put up with the nuisance any longer. They say that unless fhe smoke is abated they will apply for an injunction to compel its cessation. "When a Dispatch reporter visited the locality yesterday, the fcinoke was pouring forth in dense volumes, but was blowing down the valley instead of into the houses, as chance would have it. Chief Engineer Smith, who has charge of the plant, was asked if something could not le done to abate the nuisance. "The company," he said, "have been in trcatv with the" Standard Oil Company of Pittsburg, to use their system of oil fuel under the boilers " in place of the coal. "We expect their men out here any dav durinc the week, but they have not turned up. The idea is to use oil on trial for 30 days, and if that is not found successful automatic stokers mav be used. 1 understand that there is some hitch between the company and the Standard Oil eople regarding the matter. Coke could e burned under the boilers, but it would cost too much money." On the hill above the power house, and within 300 yards of the stack, are the resi dences of John P. Knable, John "M. Oakley, Captain S. P. Scull, Mrs. John L Kevin, Prof. Parker, Alexander Bradlev, "W. "W. "Wattles, "William McConway, X. Q. Speer, and others. Will Use Oil Instead of Coal. Some two weeks ago a protest against the nuisance, signed by these and other resi dents, was ent to Superintendent George Itice, who replied that it was intended to use oil in place of coal. After an interval another letter of prates was sent in, and a courteous reply was received to the effect that the matter would have attention. Up to yesterday nothing had been done and some of the residents seen in the afternoon declared they ill go into court if the nui sance is not abated immediately. John "M. Oakley described the nuisance as outrageous. "It "would be all tery well." he said, "if w e had erected our houses after the power house had been built; but here is a case where we are the first-comers, and now to have to sullmit to be deluged with smoke from the s?tack ot a corporation of onlv yes terdav is simplv monstrous. The residents did not invest money in their properties under any such contemplation as the subse quent erection of a smokestack right unde? their window s, and they do not now propose to remain inactive and witness the gradual destruction of their household eflects; to say nothing of the inconvenience attached to the impossibility of remaining even on one's porch when the wind is blowing in our direction. If the company does not soon take steps to do away with the smoke, we Sropoe to see if wc cannot obtain some re rcss tinder the law." Backers of Any Improvement. Captain Scull said he would subscribe to any lund whicli might be raised to have the smoke got rid of, if the company would not abate the nuisance. Prof. Parker was in sympathv with any movement his neighbors should take in this direction. It is an intolerable nuis ance that they should haeto submit to grime and soot from the power house. The lesidents Mere determined itshould not con tinue and he would support any action taken w ith this view. Last evening Superintendent George Bice, of the Duquesne Traction Company, said: ""We have made arrangements to burn oil, but the people who aie to put the process in have disappointed us time and again. Only to-day I notified them again and I think the oil process Mill be in use in a few days. The plan is to be tried for SO days and if it does not prove successful we will put in some kind of smoke consumers. "We have no desire to make the power house a nuisance and will stop the smoke by some method." Smoke Consumption a Fact. J. F. Cummings, now with the banking firm of Thomas Mellon & Sons, but former lv of Kansas City and Chicago, laughed at the idea that smoke consumers would not work. He said: "In most "Western cities where I have been the consumption of smoke is an ac complished fact. Take Kansas City as an instance. I lived thcie and in that vicinity for several years before coming to Pitts burg, and while bituminous coal is almost the only fuel in use there, the city is as free from the smoke nuisance as if nothing was used but natural gas. The stacks of the four or five power houses which operate the cable and electric lines discharge no smoke whatever, so far as I remember. It would be too costly a practice to allow the smoke to escape, as the police attend to this more promptly than any other duty assigned to them. The fine under the city ordinance is 525 for every day the nuisance is continued, and prosecutions are frequent The prose cutions are mostly against private parties for dwellings and Business houses. The large consumers have their furnaces con structed specially to fill the requirement, and claim that consuming the smoke adds largely to the heating power of the fuel. The only furnace stacks belching forth great columns of smoke are those across the city line and beyond her jurisdiction. They be long, I befieve, to the Armour Pac'king Company. The stacks of most of the power houses within the city limits form quite a contrast to stacks of the kind here. The stack of the new power house of the Du quesne Traction Company, for instance, is sending forth a dense column of smoke suffi cient todcstroyall vegetation and shrubbery in Oakland and adjacent portions of Schen ley Park. Dcntructlve to All Vegetation. "Its effect may not be visible during the present season, except so far as to begrime leaves and branches, but undoubtedly in another year or two, if continued, it will leave all that region as barren of leaf and no er as may be seen in the localitv of a string of coke ovens. The usual direction of the wind carries the smoke from this power house dircctlv toward the park en trance. It is the sulphur flakes contained in the smoke which destroys vegetation. I never had sufficient interest in the subject to inquire into the method or construction of saoke consumers, but a year or two ago flierc was quite a rivalry inr.Kansas City between the canvassers fordifferlnt patents, each one claiming superiorifxver all oth ers, but, according tonr best information, tlie important principle "lay in the method of constructing the furnace or fireplace." j Mr. Cummings further stated that he did 'not know of a manufacturer who had left .one of the "Western cities because of the en forcement of smoke-consumer ordinances. STREETS TO BE IMPEOVED. Plana and Specifications Heady for a lot of Sew City "Work.

SECBETABY F0STEE IK HEW T0HK. "Well-Known Bankers Have an Informal Talk on Bonds Soon to Stature. Xevt ToitK, June 5. It was 11:15 to-day when Secretary of the Treasury reached the sub-Treasury. There he was met by James T. "Woodward, President of the Hanover National Bank; President Ives, of the "Western National Bank; Jesse Seligman, Solictor Hepburn, of the Treasury Depart ment, and a number of other gentlemen. It was after 1 o'clock when the conference closed. Secretary Foster told the reporters that there had been no formal meeting, and that he had not sent for the .gentlemen with whom he had been talking. The matter of the 4 per cent bonds, which mature September 1, was talked over, but there were no new developments. It was urged by the bankers that 2 per cent would be a grand record for the Govern ment. The banks, which now hold $23,000, 000 of the 4U per cents, the total issue of which is 62,000,000, are ready to take up all the bonds handed in for" redemption. In fact they are ready to ftike the whole 500, 000,000 at 2 per cent at the pleasure of the Government This, it was urged, would enable them to issue plenty of 'currency, which is greatly needed. Secretary Poster was not ready" to give any answer to the resolution adoDted at vesterdav's meeting at the sub-Treasury as the outcome of the, conference. He will give his decision alter his return to "Washington. Henry Clews said there was no doubt that Secretary Fos ter would acree with the bankers that it would be to the best interest of the country to extend the maturing of the i4 per cent bonds after September 1 at 2 per cent.
