Fuel oil is rapidly replacing coal in
Pensacola. The city authorities have
already passed an ordinance providing
for the installation of oil burners at
the city pumping station and the Pen
sacola Ice Co. is Installing oil burners
at their plant also. Many other plants
in and near the city are seriously con
sidering putting in oil-burners to take
the place of coal, among them being
the Pensacola Electric co.
The two big oil companies already
in this city, "are prepared to take care
of oil consumers, and rumors are strong
that the Standard Oil company will
put up an 'oil terminal here also. With
the supply of oil right at the door man
ufacturers here are giving the matter
Recently when the coal strike was In
progress, the -various Industries here
were plainly worried. Some of the
larger plants are using many tons of
coal daily and if the strike had con
tinued for any length of time they
might have been forced to close down
their plants. - . This condition coupled
with the fact that oil is cheaper than
coal, that it is cleaner and that less
labor is necessary, to operate with it.
has created the sentiment among the
manufacturers in favor of oil burners.
The oil burners at the city plant and
the ice plant will be in operation now
within a comparatively short time and
the officials of both the city and the
ice plant believe that the change, will
be a decided improvement over, the
use of coal. .; .-..
