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.

"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.
