SUBSTITUTES FOR COAL AND OIL.
Scientist Study Use of Water Power.
Waste Called Criminal.
The possibility of a comparatively
early exhaustion of our coal and oil sup
plies, and the vital necessity of develop
ing water power as a substitute tor
non-replaceable resources, is receiving the
earnejst (consideration of business men
and scientists. Incidentally, a number of
methods for obtaining greater results
from the natural fuel resources not at
our command have come to light re
cently. Speaking on Uiih subject, the
American Exchange National bank, in
its currency circular says:
"If our scientists are to be credited
our fuel supplies, both of coal and of
petroleum, are approaching practical ex
haustion, and demand serious considera
tion as to conservation and the develop
ment of substitutes. Secretary Lane, who
long has been recognized as an authority
on the subject and a strong advocate ot
conservation of food, particularly of oil,
is very pessimistic, as to the latter, pre
dicting the exhaustion of our adequate
oil supply within a generation. His pre
diction is affirmed by E. Mackay Edgar
the noted English oil eipert, who prophe
sies that within ten years the British
empire will be selling us 500.OUO.000 bar
rels of oil a year. If Mr. Edgar is pessi
mistic about our oil supply, he is com
pensatingly optimistic about the expan
sion of our industry in general, for, if
we were to buy 500,000,000 barrels of oil
from Great Britain, it would be nearly
H,000,OU0 tmrrels more a year than w
now produce.
'"However there is no question about
the gravity of our problem. Secretary
Lane declares there is at present no ade
quate cheap "substitute for gasoline and
other forms of refined oil, and urges
economy in its use and in its extraction
from the ground. We are charged with a
waste of our oil supplies only paralleled
by our waste of timber. Better methods
are now being used in the oil fields, but
it is said that the waste is still great
enough to be described as criminal. He
also advocates the development ot more
efficient engines and of carburetors suited
to the use of blended fuels, and the de
nial of supplies to oil burning foreign
ships whose governments discriminate
against American oil burners.
"Some of the scientists who have in
vestigated the problem go further and
recommend the use of coal and electric
water power as substitutes in every field
in which they can be employed. Our coal
.supplies, especially of high-grade coal,
will not last forever, cither, but they are
expected to last mm h longer than our
oil. In their experiments the scientist"
have found that it is possible to mix
powdered coal with fuel oil on a basis of
40 per cent coal and 00 per cent oil and
obtain results equal to an oil fuel. They
are also bringing into operation a coking
process for high volatile bituminous coal
which it is claimed will produce about
twice our present consumption of gaso
line from the tonnage of coal we use
each year, and in addition will produce
innumerable necessary by-products, such
ns dyes and fertilizers, that will increase
the mine value of our coal many times.
The first battery of these coking ovens,
which in addition to other things will
make practically the whole of our high
volatile bituminous coal supply available
for steel making, is being erected at
Granite City, 111. Japan is also prepar
ing to adopt the process on a large scale.
"The powdered coal mixture ha so far
not been commercially perfected, as the
coal smks to the bottom of the contain
ers. However, the mixture can be trans
ported in pipe lines, and it has been sug
gested that a solution can be arrived at
by establishing central, mixing stations
from which nearby plants ran be sup
plied. Other proposals for the conserva
tion of coal and oil include the super
power plan for the electrification of the
railroads and the utilization of the water
power of the country.. It is claimed for
the railwav electrification plan that it
forms the cheapest ot only tnree solu
tions of the problem of increased efli
ciencv in transportation. The other two
are reductions of grades and additions
to tracks.
"The electric locomotive, it is said,
will draw twice as much as a steam lo
comotive, and through the regenerative
breaking process can he made to return
from 2.") to 50 per cent of the power it
uses. Also, the great waste involved in
coal-generated electricity can be largely
reduced through the employment of wa
ter power where practicable.
"The importance of conservation of
our fuel sup plies is currently emphasized
by conditions in Europe, where much of
the delay in the resumption of industry
is due to a tark of coal. We have also
lately experienced some of the hardships
that fo'!ow the interruption of cj.al sup
plies nnd are therefore : frame of
mind to eive the question serious consid
eration. We should lose no time in mak
ing the water power of the country avail
able for use. In view of the anticipated
exhaustion of unreplacable resources, like
coal and oil, the sentimental objection
to the utilization of our water power
seems silly."
