"I, have heard of this association of

WASHINGTON. July 2. Startled by
the volcanic ercu rrenceV in the West In
dies, Colonel Henry C. Demmlng, geolo
gist to the Director of "the United State
Geological Survey in Pennsylvania'; has
evolved an extraordinary scheme where
by he says the human race can get all
Its steam power for nothing.
Colonel Demmlng says that while the
events of the last two months .are ap
palling In the los of life. It seemed that
Nature was emphatically calling the at"
tention of man to an enormous power not
utilized for human wants and comfort.
The deepeBt hole In Pennsylvania, in
Pittsburg, nearly 6000 feet, produces hot
water; 3000 feet further.'and, he says. It
would produce steam. ' ,''' , "''.'.
Continuing. Colonel Demmlng says:
"As Professor William Halleck of Co
lumbia University says. In' order to give
the steam commercial value a method
must be provided for . dropping water to
the hot areas, allowing ft time to heat,
and yt having trreturned to the surface
as steam without Interrupting the flow.
To effect this two holes might be bored
into the earth 12.000 feet tjeep and per
haps SO feet apart. ' : , .
t, "There would be a temperature far
above the boiling point of water. Then,
If very heavy charges' of dynamite or
some 'other explosive were lowered to
the bottom of each hole -and exploded
simultaneously a .Sufficient connection
might be established between the two
holes. The rock would be cracked and
Assured in all directions, and shatter
ing It thus around the base of the holes
would turn the-surrounding area Into
an Immense water heater.
"The water poured into one hole
would be heated and turned Into steam,
which would pass through the second hola
to the earth's surface.
"The pressure of such a column of
steam would be enormous, for aside
from its Initial velocity the descending
column of cold water would exert a
pressure oi at-Jeaat-6000pounds to the
square Inch, which would drive (pvery:
thing movable through , the second hole.
The problem is therefore a mechanical
one, concerned chiefly with connecting
the two holes. This accomplished, the
water heater would aoperate Itself and
establish a source of power that would
surpass anything now in use!
"In case of seismic disturbances these
holes. If we had them In every city and
town In Pennsylvania, would serve as
Tent and tend to lessen any serious
shaking of the earth In any part bf the
state. ' We have harnessed the lightning;
why can we not now put at least the
bridle on the heat beneath us to our
