New Discovery from Which Great Re sults May Be Expected. A new electric battery of a very in teresting sort has been devised by Dr. Borchers, of Driesburg, in Germany, its cH.mlcal peculiarities being that the cur rent Is generated, not by the solution ot metal, but by the conversion of hydro carbons and carbonic oxide Into carbonic acid. As this is practically the same reaction which takes place dn burning coal, the ut'.ful energy derived from the oxidation of a given weight of carbon. In the battery can be directly ompared with the effect of burning coals or coal gas to drive a steam ensine, or in a gas engine. It fs well known that a steam engine utilizes about 12 per cent under the most favorable circumstances of the theoretical energy produced by th'e oxidi zation in the boiler furnaces of the coal used to drive it; and a good gas engine utilizes about 20 per d;nt; while Bor cher's battery is said to have delivered at times, In available form, 38 per cent of energy liberated by tha consumption or carbon in It, and at no time to have delivered leas than 26 per cent. It would be curious if the oxidization of carbon In .the wet way, In a batt';ry, should give- more than three times as much power per pound of cool consumed, as burning it in a boiler furnace; but this is Just what is claimed for the new battery, and it will not We long before rteam ooillers are abandoned and power derived entirely from batteries and distributed through wires and electric motors 'to persons diSlring to use it, The Daily Astorian positively guaran tees to advertisers a larger City apd County circulation than all other papers published in Astoria combined.
