SUCCESS OF DENATURIZATION JUndtM Press to The Enilu Tlaea. Washington, Aug. 6.—In view of the recent law of congress permitting the use of alcohol in the" arts and indus tries free of tax, the bureau of manu facturers of the department of com merce and labor has collected reports on the denaturing processes from United States consuls. A similar law is in operation in Italy, France, Ger many, Cuba, Belgium and other coun tries. Each of the countries has its own particular process of denaturlz ation. Of particular interest is the report of Consul General Robert P. Skinner of Marseile?, who says that the last word in regard to the industrial uses of alcohol has not yet been said, nor does he anticipate that American ex pectations regarding the general prac ticability of this fuel as a motive force, are going to be realized. So imperfect does the French government regard the methods now in use for rendering alcohol unfit for consump tion, or for utilizing it as an lllumin ant, that prices have been offered to the person offering the most advant ageous ideas on the subject. Never theless the reports in the aggregate recognize the possibilities of denatured alcohol based on the trials already given it abroad. THERMOMETER SAYS 91. Aaaoetated Preaa to The Kvenlag Times.
