Pittsburg, Oct. 24.—A sensation has been created in iron and steel circles by the announcement that the Philadelphia Gas company has dedided to discontinue supplying natural gas to puddling fur naces for fuel. There are 1000 puddling furnaces in this city, and over half of them will be shut off as the result of this order. This will necessitate enor mous expense in changing tlie construc tion of the furnaces for the use of coal. In addition, there will be a heavy added cost owing to the higher price of coal, as most of the companies had contracts with the gas people at a very low rate. The gas people claim that the move is not made on account of any scarcity in gas, but because it can be used to much greater advantage in private houses and at much higher rates. The estimated daily consumption of natural gas in this c is 500,000,000 cubic feet a day, equal to 2500 tons of coal. Shutting oft' the gas from the furnaces will give an almost incredible impetus to the coal mining industry. BLOCKS-OF-FIVE DUDLEY. The New York Supreme Court Keeps Its Grip on Him. New York.
