The macadamising of Leavenworth
street from Thirty-seventh street to Elm
wood park was the principal subject up
for discussion before the West - Leaven

evening. The meeting was well attended
and the Interest was not disturbed by the
weather man. Members of the county
board, park board and several city coun

In the discussions.
County Commissioner Ure declared him
self as In favor of waiting until the next
legislature gives the county commission

manent roads before going ahead with the
West Leavenworth project, and be adlvesd
the club members to take that course, but
there, was well-defined sentiment among
the members to take the twelve-foot road
and widen the road later. According to
the' present law the county commission
ers can build only twelve-foot permanent
roads.- The county commissioners, how
ever, went on 'record as being disposed to
do all they can to put th road through
at an early date.. The club passed a
motion to the effect thst the club wants
the twelve-foot road now, regardless of
the possibility of getting a sixteen-foot

In response to numerous telephone call
from residents of the . neighborhood, the
patrol wagon was dispatched to Twenty
first and Harney streets early Saturday
morning, where a man and a woman, evi
dently religious fanatics; were raising a
great disturbance by shouting, singing and
peculiar actions. They were taken to the
station where they gave the names of Mr.
and Mrs. George Crowe and said they had
come from St. Paul, Neb., and are on their
way to Iowa where the man said they had
been called by God.
The woman passed Into a sleeping trance
which her husband explained as the power
of God, but which Police Surgeon Elmore
diagnosed as 'a form of hysteria brought on
by the Intense strain to which shs had
been wrought. A large crowd bad been

ALCOHOL AS A POWER MAKER
An Ideal Liquid Tosl Easily Prodnoed
from a Variety ef Materials.
HEAT UNITS AVAILABLE FOR POWER
Pipe Mae Trananartattan and Dis
tribution A Wide Field Open for
Its Application Future
The Ideal fuel Is liquid fuel of a nature to
be readily vaportxod. If the liquid be ef
a limpid, nnnvlscoua character, the diffi
culties found In pipe line transportation
with the thick fuel oils will not stand In
th way of such transportation and dis
tribution. We have In ethyl alcohol an ideal
fuel colorless. limpid, of moderate boiling
point, about B0 degrees bolow that of wnter,
nonfreexlng, burnlnar without smoke. I mix
ing with water In all proportions, and there
fore Its flame extinguished by water,
cloanly, drying off completely when spilled,
not attacking rubber caskets or packings
and noncorroslve for motal tanks and hold
er. Tha fact that the fin me Is bluish, or
so-called nnnlumlnous, means that the
flame Is almost devoid of free carbon par
ticles, with their Intense heat radiating
power, a fsct of considerable Importance.
When gasoline or heavy oil are burning,
th flame, loaded with free carbon or soot,
radiates heat to such a degree that It Is
not possible to eppmsoh near the confla
gration, and combustible surroundings are
readily flrcd by pure radiation of beat.
The production of alcohol on a large scale
Is 'very simple, and the raw materials al
ready exist In considerable variety. All
saccharine or starchy growths are avail
able. Saccharin wastes are now largely
used In Cuba for alcohol production. At
present It Is said thnt t hallow grades of
molasses can be delivered at American .coast
cities at about 8 cents a gallon. About
three gallons of this crude product will be
required to produce a gallon of refined
spirit, or 90 per cent alcohol, snd the cost
of products may be estimated at from 8
to 4 cents, milting the cost of the alcohol a
ration aboifr 12 cents. TMs alcohol will.
In a properly organized engine, equal, vol
ume for volume, gasoline now sold at a
much higher price In producing power.
Even In the immediate future, then. It la
evident that alcohol has a large field of
usefulness. The farmer need not depend on
wood, coal or oil for his power. His agri
cultural wastes will furnish It. His fields
need only receive the sunshine and be given
sufficient water, and thence any crop yield
ing starch or sugar, however unmarketable
otherwise, may be made the source of
power, light and heal
Growth Will Be Gradual.
The us of alcohol as a fuel and as a
source of power will grow gradually. It
would be Idle to look for any sudden revo
lution in methods. When we extend our
vision into the far future we can only speak
of possibilities or probabilities. , There is
always a possibility of new discoveries
modifying conditions to such an extent
that our best present judgment may be In
error, but assuming that Increasing scarcity
and cost of mineral fuels will gradually
stimulate the selection and uae of substi
tutes. It seems reasonable to predict that
the one substitute which possesses the most
desirable qualities Is ethyl alcohol. The
amount that can be produced Is practically
A very important fact distinguishing alco
hol production by agriculture from the
production and shlpmant out of the land
of food product, meat, etc., or even wood,
Is that In the former the land Is not Im
poverished, . as . the mineral and nitro
genous matter can be returned to It,
while In the food and wood carried away
the Tichnesa of th -land la passing- away,
too. Alcohol' contains only carbon, hydro
gen and oxygen, all of whloh 00 me from
the air Itself. The transformation la be
gun In the carbonic add and water of tbe
air reaching tha growing -plant under the
influence of sunshine and completed In
the fermenting vat and. the still under
human direction. Vigorous plant growth
Is a cooling process; solar energy is ren
dered latent or potential. It would even
be impossible to calculate from the fuel
value of any growth or crop the propor
tion of the solar energy so stored up.
Fermentation renders th energy stored
more available, and distillation usually
yields a concentrated product.
Development of Bmelency.
It Is not unreasonable to xpot thst In
large engines of the Internal combustion
type, when highly developed, we may at
tain efficiencies of SO to 40 per cent. This
means that th heat units potential In the
fuel and liberated when It la burned with
the oxygen of the air about one-third may
be converted Into available power. It may
even be that future Invention will carry
this - proportion to about one-half. With
alcohol at a cost of 10 cents a gallon a
price even now realised In Cuba the cost
of the fuel per kllowat hour would be
about VA cents on an assumed efflolsnoy
of 33 per cent In tbe engine.
It Is not to be imagined that where ooal
or oil Is to be obtained at anything like
the present costs there Is at present any
possibility of their replacement. Neither la
It likely that water power, developed under
favorable conditions, can ever have ' as a
rival artificially produced fuel.
. But Inasmuch as th fuel cost is only a
relatively small fraotlon of the total oust
of operation of a great systsm of distri
bution, such as that of an eleotrlo lighting
plant or railway, it Is evident that, con
sidering the great convenience and adap
tability of the alcohol vapor Internal com
bustion engine, a wide field may open fur
Its application, as the cost ef the fuel
nlone Is a relatively unimportant Item.
