An IntcroflUlnB procciM ( for Kencratlng
electricity from coal without the Interven
tion of the steam engine la described In the
December Hnrper by the Inventor , Ur. Wil
liam M Jacques.
.Slttlni ; before nn open flro , B < tjs the
writer. I have often ill earned of converting
the storod-up energy ot the coal Into some
form of energy oven more useful to nnn
tlmn heat.Vc know that , theoretically at
loaHt , nil of naturc'fl forces are Intcrcon-
\ertlblo. why should not the potential en
ergy of coal ho concerted directly Into elec
tricity Instead of heat ? Could all of the
energy bo extracted from n single pound
of coal nnd made to do mechanical work ,
this work would more than ! a day's
labor of a very strong man. In the great
coal fields that nro distributed OUT the
mirfacu ot 'he earth nature has stored up
a supply of energy safely catltn.ited to einial
the hrtnil labor of the entire population ot
the world continued for 1,000 jc&nt.
The most convenient and useful , because
the most tractable , form ot energy Is elec
tricity. In the facility with which wo may
at will anil without wnsto convert It Into
Bush other form of energy as happens to bo
desired lies the superiority of electricity
over the rest of nature's forces. Having
electricity , wo may easily product ) beat or
light , or mechanical motion , or chemical
force. ; but electricity Itself has hitherto
been produced In quanllllcs only by the
use of complicated mechanism and with
great wasto.
nicctrlclty Is today generated by a dynamo
name that Is turned by nn engine which Is
operate by steam , and the steam Is made
from water by means of heat derived from
the combustion of coal. Qut this la a long
and circuitous process , with a largo Icnk-
at every step. Much of the energy of
\nKO goes up the chimney as heat or
fltnoko , much of the heat Is lost In hollliiK
the water to make steam , much of the ex
pansive force of the steam Is wasted an It
oncapes from the engine ; much of the power
of tlio engine IH wasted as friction , and
there Is nome loss In the dynamo Itself He-
cent tents , mndo by n committee of the Nn-
tlomil Electric Light association , of clght >
model n electric light and power planti ,
. . . show thnt the average plant wastes 97I per
> cent and utilises as electricity only 2 C per
cent ot the energy theoretically obtainable
from the coal.
The problem then was to convert the en
ergy of coil more directly Into electricity ;
to do away with the dynamo nnd tlio Gleam
engine , possibly even to ijo away with heat
A multitude of experiments were mudo.
In the earlier dajs my attempt was merely
to do a\vay with tlio djnamo and with steam ,
nnd convert heat Into olectticlty. A flic of
coke , burning on an Insulated grate , gave
nome slight electrical manifestations , but
they wore not encouraged Hxjici Inicnts with
various novel forms ot thermopile weio tried ,
but a consideration of the theory of the sub-
lect teen made It evident lint It was not
oven theoretically possible to convert more
than a very small percentage of the energy
of the coal Into electricity In this way The
gent ration of electric currents by allot nntcly
healing and cooling Iho magnetic COICH ot
wire cells gave no promlfe ot elllclent resulls
I tried nature's plan of pioi'uclns ; lightning
the evaporation of water and continual
dissipation of vapor globules and though I
succeeded In producing mlnlaturo thumlor-
nloims , the nuanllt. of olcctilclty obtainable
waa not aulljclent for any commercial use.
Indeed , my researches have led mo lo doubl
whether the Utal energy ot a good , brisk
tlinnilorutonn , dramatic as l Us display , Is
equal to the energy radiated from a bedroom
flic. For a mlntilt * fraction of a second the
force of a stroke of lightning Is tcrtillc , but
Its duration Is so brief that , even If It could
bo harnessed , It would he capable ot doing
very llttlo useful woih Many other plans ,
all of them Intensely Intorosllng from a
purely scientific point of view , were tried ;
but from most ot them no current was ob
tained that vvja economically capable of be
ing put to any Industi lal use
Nature ) Is a coy mistress , jet she likes
to l o wooed , and to the diligent suitor gives
occasional token of encouragement ; and It
linppcncd thai ono day I surprised her In
her secret , and discovered llio way by which
wo may abandon , even combustion and heat
Itself , and convert the stored-up energy of
coal directly Into cloclrlclty.
It eanio almost as n rovelallon Ibal If Iho
oxygen of the air could bo made lo combine
with the coal under such circumstances that
the production of heat could bt > prevented ,
nnd at the eamo tlmo n conducting path
could bo provided In which a cunent ot
elcctilclty might develop , the chemical af
finity of the coal for the ox > gen would
necessarily bo converted Into electricity nnd
not Into heat ; for any given form of energy
will bo converted Into such other form as
tlio surrounding conditions maUe most easy
Given the proper conditions , tlio potential
energy of coal would rather coiucit Itself
Into electricity than Into licat.
This led to experiments In which coal was
submerged In n liquid o that llio ogcn of
the air could not coiuo in direct contact with
the coil and produce combustion. Kiirthcr ,
such a lUiul.l was chosen that when air
was forced through It to thn coal the o\jgen
of the air would temporarily enlor Into chem
ical union with the liquid and then bo
ei nuclod out by a further supply of ox > gen
and foiccd to comblno with the coal Wo
may plcturn cnch successive atom of oxvgcn ,
on Its way from the source ot air supply
llnoiigli the liquid to the coal , as temporarily
ontcilng Into chemical union with each of a
row of atoms ot the liquid , Just as each
successive man as ho circles around In tliu
"grand light and left" of dancing tcm-
ponirily elaspfl hands with each of the ladles
of the sot. When one unbalance passes
thioiigli another In this way it furnishes a
path In which an eloctilo run cut ma ) flow ,
so thai by causing the oxjgen to combine
with the carbon through the Intervening
liquid oppoitunlty Is furnished for un elec
tric cunent to develop , nnd tdncc combustion
cannot tnKo pluce. the chemical alllnlty of the
conl for the oxjgen l cunvciti-il directly Inlo
electricity , ami not Into lietil. Liquids which
Ibus allow atoms of oxjgcn and a current
of electricity to pjt-M thiuugh them may bo
called "elect ! olytic carrlcin "
When n busy nan wants to talk over the
telephone Ids patlenro la always tried lo

to become a positive nultunce , nnd the In
convenience ot It Is apt to be felt In many di

The latter , of courue. lucluJoJ
In cities ami between short-dlnlance points ,
but Uio reports ot the companies alee * show
lhat long-cllatanco telephony Is growing with
amorlng ntrhlcs. The recclpti of the tele
graph companies are > beginning lo
feel Iho effeel of this new form of competl-
llon , where Iho sender and receiver of mes
sages have Iho advantage ot personal and
direct communication
It Is reported that a now syndicate hns en-
lerod Iho field with the nnnoiinced Intention
of competing with the long-dlstanco company
for publ'c ' patronage. Indcpendont local ex
changes , which now number nearly 1,000 , are
to be connected by long-distance wires , and
the entire country Is to bo furnished with a
network ot arteries for verlnl communica
tion. The recent expiration ot the main Hell
patent. * ) and thu present nssatiltn on the ller-
llncr patent by the government are appar
ently responsible for this prospective compe
tition with the older concern
Public Interest In the development of long
distance telephony , tvivs the Chicago Chroni
cle1 , Is centered In the dual question of rates
nnd wrvlce To become genuinely poptilnr
lolepliono service must bo cheapened. This
Is particularly true of lnni-illtanco service ,
In which the proivnt rale1 * are practically
prohibitory , except for Important business
mcasigca or In the cnsc of the comparatively
wealthy. There Is no valid reason why these
rates should co illniio Iti thl cm of develop
ment nnd clicniK-ncd cost of material and
If competition will bring long-distance
telephony within roach of the masses It will
bo a distinct public gain.
The electric It'ltor box. Is by no means nn
unfamiliar device. As tlio postman's mall
li dropped Inlo the strecl door box electric
contact Is made and n bell Is rung In ttio
kitchen. This Is a very "Itnplo nnd admir
able provlrlon against the possibility of an
Important teller that may demand nn Instant
icply unnoticed In Iho box A varl.illon ot
this dovlco Is now u ° od for calling the ntton-
.tlon of postal clerks to the Incoming of
special delivery Idlers The Invention , which
Is credited to a former letter carrier , consists
of a slanting box , at the lower end of which
there Is n sheet of metal working on swivel
Joints. When a letter IB dropped Irlo Iho
box II slides down upon the metal sheet ami
holds the lower cdgo down , thus making

The conipetlllou between steam and elec
