TI1EY CLAIM COAL IS CHEAPER | Than Uai, and Farntah Fljurti with I Which Thcjr Sffk to Dtnomlrad the Cor reel mm ?f Their CUim-ThOM Cool Test* Motlv at the Pumping Station Uit Fall -The Claims of the Coal Miner* In Dctall-Xo Action wai Takcu. A special meeting of the city water t>oard was held at the board's office lu I the city building, yesterday afternoon. I at 3 o'clock, for the purpose of giving to the advocates of coal as fuel at the water works pumping station another hearing. For some time the Ohio Valley Trades and I*abor AssenibTy, In conjunction with the local coal miners' union, has been waging the campaign for a change of fuel at the pumping station, claiming that natural gas 1* a more expensive fuel than home coal. I*a?<t fall two tests were made with cnal a-? the fuel, but the board announced that the result* did nut Justify the claims made by the trades assembly and coal miners' union people. The Utter, however, did not give up their struggle, claiming that the first tent made at the works was conducted unfairly?uot at the Instance of the board, though?and that the Izard's figures used In the second test are not correct. The result was the calling of yesterday's special meeting of the water board, at which the committees of the trades assembly and coal miners' union were present. Mr. H. A. Foster, a coal miner, made a lengthy statement to the board, In substance as follows: The first test of cr?al was made by the water Works superintendent, at the Instance of the water board, on September 14. 1SS?. Three Heine boilers were used, and the engines made 34.820 revolutions, equal to 8.983,560 gallons of water pumped In twenty-four hour*, the time of the test. The consumption of home coal wm 614 bushel*, at an engine duty of 43.723.700 pounds, while the guaranteed duty uf the engines is 100.000.000 pounds. It was Intimated that at this test certain persons hindered the test in various ways In order to make the showing of coal as bad as possible. For instance, it lias been claimed that the water in the boilers was blowed down one-half guage every half hour; the syphon pump was operated continuously during the twenty-four hours; one boiler damper was closed down eight hours before the fact became known to the men firing the boilers. It was claimed that either the city had been tmpojied upon in the machinery Srrtm lb.. (WmnsnV Or the p-x>ple operatinp the machinery were Incompetent. The next step was n aecond and private teat, which came off on October 28, and was conducted without the knowledge of the miners, being entirely a! the Instance of the water board. In this test, say the miners, only two Heine boilers w ore oael and the en-1 Kln?'* made 35.532 revolutions, equal to 9.157.25$ galolns of water pumped, with a consumption of 370 bushels of coal, and an engine duty of 123.970,000 foot pounds obtained, showing an excess In the speed of engines over the former! test of 712 revolutions, equal to 1R3.656 gallons of water pumped. An additional engine duty of 80.000.000 foot pounds compared with the first test was shown ?nearly three times a greater duty, with only about three-fifths as much | coal used. In the report of the water board as to the test of October 2S. 1S9 . it Is stated that the consumption of coal for the twenty-four hours was 370 bnshels. which would mean a consumption of 135.050 bushels for 345 day?, and the cost per bushel Is given at five and one-h?lf cents, making the cost of coal 37.427 75. It was also stated that the return to coat ruei wouia mean iar employment of two firemen at $720 and one hauler of ashes and coal at $600 per year, together with additional repairs to furnace caused by the use of coal, making the total cost of coal fuel SO.757 75 per year, while the present cost of natural gas Is $7,200 per year, the difference In favor of gas. according to th? board's showing, being 12.567 75. The board's figures, claimed Mr. Foster, are calculated to deceive the public. In the Hrst place. It is claimed thdt the dally consumption of coal, on the basis of the test of October '2S. Is not 370 bushels?but. on the contrary, is 333 bushels. In the second place, the board's claim that the con of coal wouM be Ave and one-half cents per bushel, is wrong and the claim is made that the coal can be bad for less than one-half these figures. Mr. Foster then took up his claim that, on the bails of the October test, the average daily consumption of coal ? w hn?hMs instead of 270 bushels, the figures advanced by the water board. With 370 bushels of coal consumed in the twenty-four hours, the amount of water pumped was 9,167.255 Gallons. The dally average consumption of water is less than S.000,000 gallons. consequently the power of 370 i bushels of coal pumped 1.157,256 gallons more than was consumed during the period of the test. To have pumped [ Just the dally average consumption , would have required 323 btoahels of coal. | Relative to the price of coal, be said I that coal can be hart at the present time ( at two and three-fifth cents per bushel. I or sixtr-five cents per ton. I At the price of coal at the present j time. t?vo, and thre^-fifth cents per bushel, or rtxly-flve cent? per ton. the coal used in a year would rt?st 13.065 27. and the cost of gas In 17.200 Conceding the claim of the board that (wo firemen, one ash hauler and additional repair* would be necessary. ?t a cost of $2.:'40. there would still be a difference In favor of coal of I1.7M 73. according to the figures of th* coal miners. Conceding 400 bushel* of coal would be used dally, the difference in favor of coal would be $1,064: or with 450 bushel. difference in favor of coal woul l be 1389 or ivith 500 bushels or coat. $115 In favor of coal.

Bryan was given the electoral vote. Colonel Brady Is attorney for the Republican claimants from Virginia in several cases in which the seats of Democratic members of Congress from Virginia are contested on the ground of fraud io the election. In speaking of these matter* yesterday, Colonel Brady stated that so fir as th?' cases have been heard toy the committee on elections in the bouse of representatives, evidence enough of fraud has been produced to show that had there been a fair election. Virginia would have been given to McKinley by 20.000 majority. In two of the?* ca.?es. the Title of the Republican claimant* has been made so clear that the report of the committee in favor of seating thorn will be unanimous, practically, the Democratic members not even making the usual minority report, thereby admitting that the setting members have no claim. In the other case the report will also be favorable' to the Republican, though there may be slight A-,n,?w[nn from the Democratic side.
