The existence of a, Ineahaiistlre
gas reservoir benrnth this city appears
to have been settled beyond all question.
Three separate and distinct wells sunk
In this city, onu in Wyandotte nnd one
In Wcstport, have struck this natural
gas rescrroir, and notwithstanding tho
fact that gas has been escaping from onu
of these wr-IU for nenrly tivu ji'ars, the
pressure and volume of gas la larger
now than when the reservoir was first
pnnottired by the drill.
The first discovery of naturnl gas In
this region of country dates hack ten or
twelve years, Hut ft I only now that
this vnluabln discovery Is being turned
Into practical usu nnd benellt for tho
rlty. Tho famous burning well at Fort
Kcott was considered a natural curios
ity for years, nnd tliousniids of curious
s'ght-xeers went to look nt what Is now
a matter of no curiosity whntnver. Tim
first discovery of gas was madti on Main
street, in the southern portion of tho
city, upon the premises of Peter Mud
bach. This was several j ear ago. Tho
workmen hnd dug down n diMnucu of
three hundred nnd fifteen feel when
salt water was struck, and this was so
agitated by gas that tho well wns aban
doned as a failure and no more atten
tion paid to it. The next discovery was
made near Wyandotte, about two miles
from this city. There, while borings
were being made for coal, salt water
was struck, nnd shortly afterwords a
vein of natural gas, wlilcb has flowed
constantly for llvo eurs without iiny
diminution. The dally waste of gas Is
estimated by scientists to be about two
hundred nnd fifty thousnd cubic feet
every twenty-four hours. It was con
templated at thu titno to save this gas
Htid conduct It by pipes to Kansas City.
It comes to tho surface with such forcu
that a wooden plug driven Into thu top
of the tube will, after remaining tliero
sotnu time be forced out by the prexsuru
of the gas, and thrown out of sight in
thu air.
The next discovery was made at thu
coal shaft sunk bv thu city In West Kan
sas City, where the same indications of
gas, and thu samu How of salt water,
near Wcstport, to a depth of two hun
dred and fourteen feet, was rendered
useless and thu enterprise abondoned
occoiint of striking salt water ami
what has slncu been discovered to bu
It remained for the Water Works
Company to solve this mysterious prob
lem regarding thu sinking of deep wells.
In sinking or boring un artesian well In
thu Kaw oottoms near the water works
a til water was struck, and below this
tho gas rcHorvolr. The gas vein was so
strong thai It threw the watet up lu a
four-Inch Jet about ten feci above thu
earth. Thu gas vein was struck !147 feet
from the surfnre of thu earth. An iron
tube Is being sunk down to the reser
voir, where It Is expected thatsiifllcient
ns will bo obtained to supply fuel nnd
ght for the water works. The ga is
found below n layer of rock about ten
feet In thickness, nnd wherever this
atrntn of rock lias been pierced tho gas
has been found.
A company his been formed within
tho past few ays, for the purposo of
sinking a well on thu corner of Eighth
and Wiilnut streets. Thu necessary cap
ital has been subscribed, anil thu work
will bu commenced without delay. It Is
expected that gas will bu obtained nt a
depth of Ji.'W feet, and in suiltcicntquan
titles to snvu thu company sinking thu
well nt leait 910,000 per year in fuel
and light. Those engaged In the enter
prise have no doubts of success.
Another gas well will bo sunk near
tho nauklng-house, by Slavcns, Mansur

well near tho gas works as an experi
ment. Several other wells aro in con
templation, ami should tho first wells
provo to bo ucccsful, it will not bo
lonir before Kansas City will not only
bo lighted by naturnl gas, but Its fuel
will be drawn from thu samu Inexhaust

Tho discovery of this immeusu gas
reservoir beneath this city cannot bu
overestimated in Importance or value.

"Solid South" to furnish to tho 4flth Congress
the necessary strength to oust President Hayca
anil limugnrate Mr, Tlldcn. Ho expressed tho
opinion that representative from the South
will not Join in the movement to subvert the
result of their former patriotic action, and
thus remand the country to that condition of
anarchy from which they Joined In aavlng It
lesa than two yeara ago. He think It the duty
of tho Southern people to send only such rep
resentative to the 40th Congress aa shall be
pledged to resist at all hatxards snch a revolu
tionary scheme. He sdvlse them to organize
and suppoit no person for Congress who has
given aid or sympathy to the movement, or
who will not pledge himself to sustain tho title
of President Hayes, for only In this way can a
gravo danger to the Republic be averted.
Deeming it hi duty In warn the people of the
South of the danger which threaten tte coun
try, he write thus, having no reason to apolo
gise for, or disown hi own political opinions,
and relying upon the patriotism and honor of
the people.

Dispatches from Loadoa of May 31st,

Count Schouvaloff, In au Interview, has lu
tlitcd that the probabilities of war have most
ly vanished, and that Russia preferred peace
to an armed conflict, and the conference was
mostly arranged. Gladstone, in an article In
the Century, of Ihe HHh, opposes any protecto
rate In Turkey, and say that such a protecto
rate could hardly cud otherwise than In the de
struction of Turkish power aud Its disappear
ance from the fare of the earth.
Affairs at Constantinople begin to
look less dangerous. The Russian have with
drawn from PlrlnJI. This, and the news from
European capitals, have a-i relieved the previ
ous tension that little fear I now entertained
of accidental collision. Both the Russian ami
Turkish officers are Indulging In pleasure ex
cursions. The conllict between the Turks anil
Insurgents In Crete Is Imminent. A special'
from Scutari Albania via Hsgusa, states that
through the medlaUon of tho Brttloh consul,
tbe conflict which Impended at Podgorltta be
tween the Turks and Montenegrins ha bcea
averted. But for the consul's efforts a collis
ion would have taken place lu a few hours.
The Prince of Montenegro finally pledged his
word thst In cac the hostilities were renewed
he would give the Turkish commander of Pod
gorltxa ample notice. Tills pacific (urn In af
