THE FUEL OF THE FUTURE.
The Royal Statistical Society of Great
Britain has been collecting figures and
measurements with' a view of ascertain
ing exactly boy long it will be before
the English coal fields are worked out.
The question is not by any means a new
one, but the report recently issued by the
society tabulates new and past estimates
in a very instructive manner. The first
calculation quoted is that of Sir William
Armstrong, who in 18C1 stated that all
the coal within 4000 feet of the surface
would be exhausted in about 212 years.
Prof. Jcvons, an excellent authority,
came forward a few years later nearly
twice as gloemy; that is to taj, he
thought the last box of coal would be
raised within 110 years. This forecast
was received with both anger and deri
sion. Prof. Marshall spent several years
on the study and in 1878 corroborated
Jevons and opposed Sir William in nearl v
every particular. The latest contributor
to the controversy is Price Williams, who
is also largely confirmatory of the two
Tii us we have three able authorities,
writing al different periods and arguing
from quite different standpoints, agree
ing that the coal supply of England is
not likely to last beyond the year 1090.
Without a constant coal output Great
Britain would lc a commercial wreck.
It needed not the arguments used by the
scientists named as a sequel to their 'cal
colations to make it clear that if they are
correct in their surmise the year 19DQ
will witness, or at least herald, the down
fall of Great Britain as a nation. No na
tion without a supply of coal, either in
its own soil or close at band, can ever at
tain to or retain commercial eminence,
and this is particularly true of a country
which is very thickly populated, and
whose manufactories find employment
for a majority of its inhabitants. An
other reason for the seirous prospect for
England in this matter is the poverty in
Mich substitutes for coal as lumber,
uatural gas, petroleum and other heat
Of course, in a country of such extent
and with such resources as the United
States, the coal problem is far less press
ing, though even here, as Price William
point out, the supply is quite limited.
On this side of the Atlantic the question
lias been inquired into in the interest of
lifferent localities, and it has been con
cetti ed that the anthracite coal supply of
Pennsylvania has only about twice the
life ahead of it that is predicted for the
English mines. This, too. is supposing
the consumption and demand will not in
crease as rapidly as there is indication of
their doing. Hence it will be seen that
the question as to what Must be the fuel
is not one that can be altogether laid on
one side. The triumphs of science of
recent years have almost destroyed the
force of the word "impossible'' and it
may be that some inventor will eventual
ly solve the problem of how to store
and utilize the heat from the sun's rays.
This seems really to ba the only source
of heat which is inexhaustible. Globe

have made plain its necesity. J
