THE GAS PROBLEM
A* IT AFFECTS WHEELING
i
Dlacttaaed at n Small but Reapectable SUei!
Meeting of Citizens Yesterday?1The Various
Wells That Blaj be Taken up?Au
Expreaalon of Views? Committee.
The meeting of manufacturers, businesi
ineu and citizens generally, called in yea
terday morning's papers for yesterday af
ternoon, at the City Building, was not s<
well attended as it should have been
when there is taken into consideratioi
the importance of the subject the meetinj
was called to discuss?that of procuring i
natural gas Supply for Wheeling in orde
to allow her to successfully compete witl
Pittsburgh and other places where thi
strange and cheap fuel is boing used toai
advantage In more ways than one. At
o'clock, the hour for which tho meotinj
was called there were not half a doze)
gentlemen present. By 3 o'clock probabl;
twenty persons were gathered in the Sec
ond Brunch chamber, but among tha
number there were not more than live o
six men prominently identified with tin
industrial establishments of the city.
On motion of Mr. N. B. Scott, Mr. Jame
' B. Taney, business manager of tho Jkgu
' ttr, was made chairman and the represeii
tatives of tho two daily papers presen
were made secretaries. Then there was
' pause. Mr. Scott finally asked that Mi
0. W. Brockunier inform the meetin
i what the meeting was called for and whe
i action, if any, it was expected would b
tnirnu \if Rrnnlrunior said that it wa
i well known that considerable money ha
' been expended hereabouts in an endeavc
to tlnd a How of natural gas, but thus fc
5 with no great success and that there wei
i now in existence several wells bored to
. depth of 2,000 feet and under.' Ho refei
! red to the advantage possessed by Pitti
' burgh, in having a good supply of the ni
tural gas and that Wheeling to hold lie
. own agaiust that city must either find i
3 here or pipe from a distance of Hfteen c
, sixteen miles. The ideu as talked ovt
. among several, was that to secure gas i
I this vicinity a well must be put down tt,OC
, or 3,500 lout. Tho Ben wood mill had pi
\ one down 2.400 feet, but had found no gai
5 Tho La Belle was down about 2,000 fee
t with but few encouraging signs.
T1IK CENTUAL'S OAS WELLS.
Mr. Scott said that he was greatly sui
i prised to note tho small representation <
inanufacturere present. *or a longtiui
he had been impressed with tho necessit
of securing gas. He had noticed tho art
cles that had appeared in tho press th
n past few days and had made a few ii
quiries of the borers at the Central glai
, house well. It was down 2,020 feet. Th
J borers would :be willing to go down 1,0C
further for $2 per foot, and after that a
additional 500 feet for $2 50 per foot. M
} Scott said that tho company was no
? having this well cleaned out for the pu
pose of securing a better flow for tho sma
[ vein that had ueen struck and was no
J being used in certain portions of the fai
1 tory, but that it would be willing to su
1 render it as it now stands, with the nndei
standing that in case it should be take
hold of by a pool for tho purposo of coin
lower to ascertain whether gas in a larg
quantitv could be fouud, that in case sue
t a supply was struck, the glass compan
should have the same on uayiug buck t
- the members of the pool their contribi
. tions with interest, and he further sai
that in addition to the expense alread
1 gone to by the company in putting dow
- its two wells, it would contribute to th
s development oi any wen in me vieinitj
p Mr. Scott gave some very interesting ir
. formation concerning the developments t
1 the two wells sunk at tho Central. In th
r first, at 800 feet a very good liow wi
- found; that was the one that caused a
much, excitement here. It wjyj finall
i eased off and the well sunk lower. /\
t 1,025 feet the Bait water was struck. The
- was cased olT and tho boring continue
down to its present depth. The secon
1 well, about 45 feet distant, was sunk fc
3 the purpose of striking tho 800 feet flov
, but nothing was found until the salt watt
t (low vras encountered and then that we
I was abandoned. He gave soino figure
showing the comparison between gas an
0 coal for fuel purposes that were interes
ing.
8 THE LA UELLU'S OFFER.
j Inquiry as to the La Bello well, di
veloped the fact that at 800 feet a ver
email flow was struck, not largo enou#
to amount to anything. In this connei
tion Mr. lirockunier presented for tho col
sideration of any pool, combination <
- company that might bo formed for tli
purpose of experimenting, & propositi?
- from President Priest of the La Belle,
That company has a conditional coi
' tract with Oeorge Given to bore 2,600 fc<
for $5,000, but It feoJiB|;Jiat it has expendc
* about as much as it to venture i
1 tho same. It is willing, howQVQT, to ,PU
> render tho well to those who willoontfnu
> it down, with the understanding that i
: enough gas is secured to use in tk
, mill that will pay a reasonable interest o
? the cost of the well, then the compan
will agree to pay back the^/jtire expense
' connected with tho sinking of M.e wel

Col. Itobert Campbell, of tho Hoard c
' Public Works, thought that tho Cit
Council and County feuunjasionorsflhoul
interest themselves ill tliln important mat
tor. The city could not, in bis npjqjon
net too liberally in a matter of this tiatur
and yet lie knew as well as any one, ths
there was not much public spirit hen
He suggested that a i?3);?ittce of live h
appointed to wait on Dune two lipdies an
aawrtain wiiat could be none.
Mr. ,t. I'. Wilson, of Pittsburgh, wt?
' will be reiwwjbered as being here severs
; months ago when tho gas excitement oc
casionad by the strike at the Central wa
1 at its height, was present at tho incctiii
1 and Mid that tho well at tho 4'S" (jridjf
' out the National road was now down afaoo
1 2,000 feet; that it was tho property of J
| K. Lannhan, of Pittabnrgli, who was will
. lug to turn over the weltkije/her with hi
' lease on 1,300 acres of land to a pool am
; in case gaa was struck tho pool to botiim,

AN OI.D TIME rtcnir.
Mr. A.. C. Egerter apoko for MK Garden

They intended to sink the well to a great
or depth, lie ttio?gJ>t with Mr. Camp
bell, that the city should interest hersell
In lliti matter it she could legally.
Mr.Kliol>erly, who had been a silent ?pec
tator up to thin time, now secured tin
floor and let loose una pi his characterislii
speches, such as used to uajta the Coiii.ci
lulls resound. Ho was surprlW tlwt i

only a few months Jj.iere had beer
enacted by Council a meaaur* tinf
(row the jJoard that increased Lbutt*a. 4i
a popular <ue) 25 percent. ]Jb referred U
tho ordinance compelling alack to be
weighed. "Stuff," said Mr. Kimberly,
"tliat we were glad to got rid fat thp post
of handling, yet its cost to tjie conauyity
must U Inerqisad in order to increase the
Board's revenues." J'liOJl followed a livqly
and personal racket b?tw?u> Messrs Kj?berly
and Campbell that provofc^a considerable
laughU'r, and waa only stopped by
Mr. Brockunler rlaing to a point of ordor.
Mr. Enkine wlien sailed on for an opinion
said that il would bo illegal for the
city to go into any scheme such fa Jjad
been proposed.
Mr. Scott moved Uiat a committee )>o
appointed to conajder the various plans
and propositions submitted and report #t
a meeting to be held at the City Building
next Friday afternoon. Tbe ttalr aji
etinted as such committee Messrs. J. H.
obha,* J. D. Culbertson, A. W. Kelly,
Dr. E. A. Hildreth and T. H. Logan.
. Before adjourning Mr. W. F.reterson
offered as a suggestion to the committee
this plan: The county has a large tract of
i land about its poor house; there-is a need ,
of gas as a fuel and illuminator at that in*
stitution; let the cititens prepare a petition
asking the Board of Commissioners
to put down a well on the poor house farm
for county purposes; if gas is secured the
county will have use for it and the work
might demonstrate whether gas was to be
found here. '
1UXK TALK. 1
now the Crnxfl l? rrogreftnlnjr In This City. 1
Wuller Notci.
A largo and delighted audience filled
the Island rink hist evening and was more
than entertained by Master Clint Collins,
the youthful phenominal skater. After
watching lilm one will agree that he is entitled
to the title of the champion acrobatic
skater of Ohio. He is a little fellow, not
yet in his teens, but his performance
would bo wonderful in one twice his ago.
? To-day he makes his last appearanco at
11 the rink, lie will give two exhibitions;
y one this afternoon and one this evening.
It is probable that the place will l>e
t crowded on.both occasions. The number
r of skaters was very large last night.
3 Messrs. Larkin and llundlan had a force
of men at work bright and early yesterday
B grsuliug the old Atheneuui lot. They propost)
to have their rink open and in operation
as they at first announced, inside of
,t ten days. They propose making their
a opening a boomer.
r> The roller skating craze continues to
grow in this city. Yesterday Messrs.
Lally & Mahlon secured a lease of tho
e property on Main street near Twentys
fourth, formerly occupied by the street
J car stables, on which they propose putting
,r up a first class rink. They came from
ir Boston and have been connected with the
15-acre rink, the largest in this country.
a They can put up a big building on their
r. property and they propose doing so.
Messrs. Kose and Entler who are going
t. to put up a rink at tho corner of Chapline
ir and Twenty-second streets, propose tearit,
ing down two occupied houses that are on
,r the property, in order to make their rink
,r a good sizetl one. They were living around
n yesterday hunting quarters for. tho peopie
that now occupy the houses. These
gentlemen are also verv much in earnest
s> and vow that their rink will be open in
about two weeks), and that for style and
comfort they will not bo downed.
It is wonderful what an interest nearly
every one, and especially the skaters, are
i"* taking in tho coming rinks. One of the
? latter in discussing the matter with a
e friend as he circled around the Pavilion
)' last night, was heard to exclaim: "Won't
i- it bo fun 7 There'll be lots of competition,
e plenty ofjattractions and music and cheap
l" skating?why we'll be skating for live
s? cents then."
e At the Fifth street rink in Steubenville,
Q a children's masquerade carnival is to
? take place on the 13th. Prizes are to be
r* given for the most graceful l>oy and girl
skaters, for the best boy and girl costumes
r~ and for the best comic costume. The auU
dience are to bo tho judges. On tho 21st
w at the same rink, a grand carnival is to be
held for the benelit of the G. A. li. bener"
volent fund. Both promise to bo notable
f" events. Steubenville has had the roller
n skating craze for several months past.
S Misses Ida Peloquin and Lizzie Bemis,
J3 tho graceful lady skaters who charmed so
? many at the Island rink during ita openy
ing week skated at the Wigwam rink in
0 Steubenville last night.
l" The "promenade step" is one of the
d most graceful of the many roller skate
y movements and there is not a prettier
n sight than to see a couple gliding along in
0 this movement. Several of Wheeling's
K skaters are at present struggling with it.
l" Skating rinks are starting up iu nearly
every town of any prominence in this
e State. The finest ono probably, is at l'ar18
kersburg. It was put up two seasons ago
0 and its arrangements are very complete,
y The opening of these rinks furnishes an
1 amusement for tho people of those little
towns where there is very little going on
in the winter, that is appreciated,.
d At Toronto. Ohio, thu L'linrfj>K urn ? Ad
,r mission, 10 cento; skates, 15 cents; use of
'? lloor to those who have skates of their
J own, 10 centa. After the rinks all get to
going hero like charges may be looked for.

In addition to the reduction of wages at ]
the Riverside steel works to the Home- ?"
Btead basis, of which notice was recently yjj
given, ono "tarn," just half the force of eV(
men employed, liave been notified that n
their services aro no longer required by coi
the company. This notice is construed wo
by the workmen as a blow at tho Amalgated
Association, as the inon discharged are jr
largely members of that Association, while
a less proportion of tho force retained are J
in tho Amalgamation. J10
Ono of tho discharged workmen said tw
yesterday that the manager ol tho steel
plant tolil him that if tho employes would
resign their Membership in tho Associa- ha
tion, he thought both turns would again mi
be employed in a short time. It is also re<
reported that the works will start up '
double turn shortly with new workmen.
The Amalgamated Association is con- 0tl
sidering the status of affairs, but has not th<
yet resolved on a course of action. (
Tho difficulty at the Bellaire steel plant ??.
remains in tlalu 7uo. As stated yesterday,
the workmen agree to accept tho reduetion
provided they are furnished tho same
facilities and tjio same number of men to
do tho work, or they will work at the he
former price, as they have been. It is
claimed that the Homestead works employ an
285 men on two turns and mnko 150 tons
of steel in twelve hours, while 100 men in tri
Bellaire in one turn make 100 tons of iron Ai
in tii'plvn hnuffl. lliivintr to tin mnnt work 1111
they insist that they ought to have more tla

and disposed of the Cercdo Enterprise to
Mr. W. A. Merrill, who proposes to keep llc
tho paper politically what it has been, a

is strong and vigorous,* and there is

to the field, and the best of wishes will ed
follow him as well as his predecessors. Sn
