The engineering society met in the
Temple last, evening with a large at
IttndahW if atuderi t' engineers. After
the minutes of. the preceding meeting
were read, 'Mr. B. C. Adams gave a
very ihieresllng lalk o'n the making of
tho two gases, water and coal gas.
He made It vqry clear that water gas
Is not made from water as a great
number of people think, but from ma
v rials which" cost nearly as much an
abse;,us"edL in the production of -coal
gas. Mr. Adams passed blue prints of
the two machines used in making the
gases among the engineers while he
talked which .made it very interest
ing. He also gave the Complete pro
cess for the making of both gases. He
gave all staflslics as to the cost of
gas peV tnpuiand cubic .feet in. every
detail. He was able to do this on ac
count of the federal court making
In talking of water gas he says the
term is incorrectly applied. Water
gas 1b nothing more than carbonated
blue gas. ,It does not give as much il
lumination, but is much better in some
other respectB than, coal gas. The rea
son for making the two gases is
that the water gas machine Is started
arid shut down more eaBily and with
,lss 'expense than the coal gas ma
The coke obtained in the making of
rco&l gas is used to heip make the
water gas. Tho coal gas is made on
account of its high heating value. Lin
coln gas Is distributed to the consum
er through sixty Itailes of main.
A large pier cent or the gas made
hever brings in anything. Some Is
lost by leakage arfdslow meters while
iSorae is never; payed for at all by tho
Mr. Adams argues that although the
fjrh'qtorlals used Jn the making of gas
have advanced in the last few years
(nevertheless gas has been deliver
fd'to the conBumer at a reduced' price.
n One of the reasons of tho present
Expense Jnmaking gas is the cost of
jcoal delivery In "the West. It costs
jhe, Lincoln Gas and Electric company
flve dollars jind Blxty-five cents to
"have every i. ton of coal placed on their
;floor. They use a high grade of Penn
faylVahla -coal. Mr. Adams also sayb
famt he can deliver gas at one dol
lar per thousand cubic feet at the end
He.1 nlsrb impressed' the Idea of "de
i'preclatlon" on the engineers and asked
jthem not to forget" it.
