Tlio Iowa , Illinois and Nebraska Standard * Compared Probable iueiices of JtcsL-ind- ing ; the Law. "In no other single article of commerce are - the mutations of time more apparent than in tlio production and consumption of petroleum oil , " remarked a former deputy Iowa state oil inspector to a reporter for TIM : Bun. "I well recollect with what profound feelings of awa I regarded the Hrst small qiiftiitlty of kerosene oil I ever saw. It was away back In the middle of the sixties , and the mysterious fluid was brought homo in a bottle by thu pa ter familias. There had been days of anxious discussion around the H reside as to the ad visability of ixMiouncliifr tlio venerable homu- inudo tullow candle ami runnlni ; the risk of Hying into the fnco of I 'rovidonce bv burning Instead the oil that was reputed to have gushed from the smitten rocic in the new world's Horob. The deadly explosive mituro of tie ! lluicl luiil boon discussed freely for the bonellt of youthful inquiring iniiuls , and when thnt bottle of groenlsh-bluo stuff was brought homo and placed on tbo kitchen talilo I regarded it as containing some horrors thnt were oven more terrible than the com bined contents of all the 1'andoru boxes the world hud ever seen. Ml was precious stuff , too , ana the half gallon bottle represented 40 cents.Vlth wlintlntense ii.lerust we watched the little pea-sized flame tunt crowned the top of the glass lamp. The fear engendered by the mystery surrounding the origin of the oil and its reputed deadly nnturo if it took a no tion to blow up , kept the family circle n very safe distance trom the lamp during the ulght ot its ad vent. N'o Cihcbor over regarded his sacred Ilumo uith inoro profound awe than did tliu doicn Juvenile eyes look upon that little topknot of yellow llanio for the first few hours of its existence. Iut ! when 0 o'clock came niut tbo tiling did not blow up 1 recollect how dlsapnointc I felt when the governor turned it down and safely sup pressed it with a little puff of Ins breath. Sacred uwo quickly JtiWo way to common place respect with tweiity-fourhours ol la- mlllarlty , and at tlio cud of the second day when I discovered I could simp my lingers at It with impunity , it had fallen to fhuluvel of the ' 'store candle. " At the nnd of the third day when I discovered that I could Illl an old ' ( } . IV gun cap thulium losl its "goody" with It and snap it iv | iitoillv on tlio "tube" of the old single barrulud shotgun without tiring the piece , It sunk' beneath the level of even contempt. "In those days It wus mi extravagant fam ily that consumed a gulfon of the now llnld In a month , Thu only possible advantage tno lamp had over the old Unllow candle wivs the etuadlness of its Main Uiul tbo additional Im portant fact that it dkl.notreiiuliu "Eiuifllng" every live minutes. TlfOn there was only a few wells In existence , and the process of rcilnlng was crude and wastful , only two products helng obtained , koroscno und ben zine or ' 'spirits , " as the latter was com- monlv called. Then pots and kettles weio chiolly u cd in distillationand , no stupendous fortunes were ever dreamed of In eoiinec- "tlon with the stuff. Twenty-five years have soon great revolutions in Its commerce , and It tins been the .source of the most gigantic fortumis ever accumulated by men. Im proved processes of distillation have given tbo world nearly a score of products , many of them vastly inoro valuable than tbo illumi nating tluld , nnd tbo price has gone down from 75 cents a irallon to as low as S cents , the pvlco nt which nno of the cheaper grades is ivtalllng todav. Now families consume ten to twenty gallons a month and obtain a llsrlit that exceeds gas In brllliuncy , nnd almost e < | uals the electric light , at n cost blightly greater than was loqulrod to supply HID tallow candles a few years ago. "Tho fluid contain ! ) ttio same deadly elo- monls today that caused people to look upon it with sucli liistrusta generation ago , and although the consumption is two or three hundred lo'd ' greater now than it was then , yet fatalities from explosions are far less fromieiit. It Is a significant fact that In Iowa , for the six pears proceeding last year , there has nut been a lamp explosion in the state. Lamps have been broken , and tbo burning oil has caused distressing fatalities , but in no Instance has a lamp exploded in tlio way they used to explode while slttinc quietly on tlio family table. This good result is to bo attributed directly to the Iowa state laws for the inspection of illuminating ; oils. The year prior to tbo adoption of the present law , I believe there were twenty-threo fatal cases of burning caued by lamps exploding with the hVrccness of gunpowder and scat tering the burning lluid over the unfortunates who were sitting around the homo fireside. A year or two provlous Illinois had passed nn oil Inspection taw and thousands of bar rels of oil were condemned. Of course the law was only local in application , and while it prevented the sale ot the dangerous oils in that state It could not prevent thu dealers ship ping them into udjoiningstntes. Thus Iowa was made tbo dumping ground for all the condemned oil In Illinois , and thousands of barrels wens sent in here. Tlio consequence was that lamp disasters wcro as f rcquont as snowstorms in winter. In November pro- neoiling the convening of the legislature that adopted the present law thcro were three oil trains sent into Iowa over the Illinois Cen tral road. They had thirty cars of oil each , mid evc-rv barrel of oil bore the rojootlon stamp of an Illinois oil inspector. All of this oil was unloaded in Iowa along tbo line of thoroad. It wus sold to the dealers at a discount , Imt it proved to be costly stuff. In almost every town where the oil was dropped there were lamp explosions , Thousands of dollars worth of property was destroyed and many Innocent lives sacrificed. During those months of No vember and December there were twelve fatal cases of unriiim ; from those explosions. \Vlien the legislature enlivened these facts were brought to the attention of the mem bers , and a do/.en bills wcro Introduced at 0111:0 providing for the inspection of all illu minating oils. Many of tnese bills wisru ab surdly ridiculous and oppressive to the oil companies , hut out of nil the discussion e.umi the present law , which , if properly enforced , makes a lamp explosion a practical impossi bility. Not nearly all the benefits of the law ire roali/od on account of the ignorance of the retail dealers. It was designed for the protection of the do.ilors as well"as tbo con sumers , but the oil companies In many in stances nilslead tlio doalins by placing fanci ful and meaningless brands on the barrels. For instance , simple water while oil will bo converted Into half ado/en different brands solc'ly by Ihn dealers' stamps and the litho graphic labels on the barrels. It nil comes from tbo saino tank , but the lioalor will n.iv several cents moron gallon for the I cent lalK'lon the onu. "The immunitv from accidents in Iowa is also duo tu tbo fact that our law makes the standard higher than in cither Illinois or Ne braska. Our process of Inspection is also dilTorent , to seine extent and requires Intelli gence and skill to bo made accurately.Vo use a modified pattern of thoElliottiiispection | cup , which is the generally recognized stand ard Instrument. Our legal standard Is 1053 Farcuhcit , that is the oil U healed In a closed vessel to that temperature , and If it liberates u combustlblo gas It should be condemned. The process is like taking a lump and boating the oil in it to Hint degree and then inserting a lighted taper , If tlio process of refining has ooen stopped too..soon the heat will have liberated a gas iind'an explosion would follow. If it has not tbo tapur will find nothing to ignite and the lamp cannot bo exploded until u higher temperature has bcun reached. The terms "lf > 0" and " 17. > flro tost" put upon tlio barrels by rctluers are about as misleading as they are meaningless. The llro test is supiwsod to bo the point at which the oil will Ignite and continue to burn when pluccd in an open vessel. Oil that will Hash In n closed cup at UK ! will burn in an open vessel at about 1IS ! , and an oil that would only burn lu a temperature of 175 would bu useless for ilUnnlnutlng purposes in an ordinarily constructed lamp , " 1 notice thut there is a disposition among the mmnbors of the Nebraska legislature to repeal the Inspection law. It will bo a voiy grave mtttako If it is done. It should bo amended und made to mom nearly correspond with the Iowa law , niid the process of Inspec tion should bo discontinued. Tim f'oitorcup Is used there und the standard U 100 , Willo there Is apparently only n difference of five degrees In the standard of the two states , there is In reality nearly twenty. I have found that oil that I have condemned in Iowa and which stood 100 in our test would Lie taken over into Nebraska nnd passed by inspectors who would discover that by tbo Foster cup it would go 113. With the Foster cup I have made a varia tion of ivs high as nine degrees in the same cup of oil. With the Amiens or KI- liott cup this manipulation is impossible , if tbo Nebraska law should bo repealed the state will bo Hooded with dangerous illumin ating compounds , In tbis direction in real ity lies the greatest protection the law af fords to the people , for the responsible oil companies do not desire to sell light grade nnd dangerous oils. It is the irresponsible little companies and individuals who got up "patent" II- .uininaUng compounds nnd sell to the con sumers that do the real mischief. "With honest and fearless capable , mspcc- : ors tlio oil inspection lawsrfaru among the most benellcoiit that legislatures can puss. Wore It not for the protection they afford .amp disasters would take precedence of all other horrors in the extent of the disasters they cause and the number of innocent vic tims they claim. The wonder is to mo that a national standard bus not been adopted and n jonctMl Inspection law passed. The tempta tions to sell low grade oils are greater now than they wcro oven ten years ago , for the processes of refining creates an intermediate [ iroduct Iwtwccn kerosene and gasoline that cannot readily find a market , and is mod only In tbo manufacture of cheap paints. Just , is pure naphtha , or "sf gasoline , is used almost wholly bv the rubber manufacturers.
