A Great "Want Killed *
Some tin PO months ago while paitios were
boilng a tube welt at tlio South Omaha union
block yaids to secino an additional supply ot
water , they struck a vein ol gas at the depth
of about 20) feet. Tills gas was supposed to
be natural gas , such as Is found in Pennsyl
vania , An analysis , wlilch was completed
only a few day sago , showed , hovvovei , that
It was nltiogcn gas , and not the natmal gas
used foi maiiitlactuiing , beating and Illumi
nating pin poses. Meantime n stock company
was or ani/ed In this city for the purpose of
boring for n.ituial g is. Thu capital was llxc-d
nt gJO.OCO. 'Ihe pilnclpal oiiani/er ; of tills
company was Mr. 1'etei I' . Her , who had bu-
comu an enthusiast on tlio subject of natural
R.as , and assuitcd that ho would bear the ex
pense himself ol boilng for it , If nobody
would join with him In tlio enteipiise. Hut
ho had no ainiculty In Inducing olhers.
among whom were such men as Herman
Kountru , William A. Paxton and John Mc-
Shanc , to utittowilli him in tlie project ,
Operations were accordingly begun some
weeks ago at Fourth and Plcico stieeU , near
tlio Willow Springs distillery , and onlv a
few bundled feet fiom tlie west end of the
Union Pacific brldco. At a depth of MiO feet

seven inches thick. Although this occa-
hloued some little surprise , It was not consld-
eied of vciy great Importance , as such thin
veins bad bulote been discovered in various
sections of the stale , and would not pay to
woik. In fact , thu discovery ofcoal was con-
hideied of such little consequence tliat the
men engaged in thowork failed to make men
tion of the find In ic-ports ot theh pie iess to
outsiders. Tliu boicis continued to
boio for natural ga , not ex
pecting to strike any piotitabie
bed of coal. Yesterday , however , a great
Mirprlso was occasioned when they 'an their
drill through a v eln of coal

al a depth of 511 leet just below a stratum of
blue limestone. Specimens wereseeuied and
placed on exhibition. Tlie coal is what is
known as soft or bituminous coal , and ot
pplendid quality. Those who understand
( oal mining bay tliat this bed of coal In all
probability underlies the whole of Douglas
run vr.iv 10 nn wonum.
A coal mlnlnir company will bo onranUed
at once with ample capital , and mining will
be begun immediately.
In this connection it may be stated that the
Union Pacllic a few years ago bored an
artesian well near the west end of thebiidgo
and struck a v ein of coal at tlie depth of about
Blx bundled feet , buteveiy effort was made tn
keep the mattei quiet. Tlie public obtained
but very little Infoimatlon about the matter ,
and It w as genei ally given out in rather an
Industrious manner that tlio discovery really
amounted to nothing. It looks very much
now as If the valuable hcciot had been kept
with the Intention of not destroying the
Omaha maikct foi the Wyoming coal mines
of the Union Pacific , Hut tliu great bccret
has at last been uncov cred , and the era of
cheap fuel in Omaha Is near at band.

Incie.ased value attaches to tlio dlscovciy
from the thickness of the vein. While it i'
trim that In the immense coal legions ol
Pennsylvania veins have been struck thai
have a thickness of liom thirty toeighty leet
any find approaching this nizo is entirely un
known In tlio wcbt. The Iowa coal tieldn , the
ilcliestyet found in the west , contain bui
few veins that .no more than fem or live feel
in thickness , and none that are more tliar
blx feet in depth. The mines In the vicinity

The distance fiom the binfacc of the ills
coveiy Is anothei good fc.ituie , Miuy of tin
low.i mines aio all the way liom six hiindtei
to one thousind feet in depth , and yet a veil
of coal tlneo feet in thickness at biicli a deptl
Is woikcd at great profit. At Leavcnwoith :
coal company has iiiado a foi tune from the
opoiatlon of a vein of coal only one and i

the piesent day tbo depth of a vein cuts bu

bed lias been met. Hy tlio impiovcd ma
cliincry the coal is hoisted by steam on ai
endless chain on which are hung buckets-
working on the piinclplo of the ouco populai
chain pump. This will make the operatloi
ot the mine an easy matter.
