OIL TO REPLACE COAL.
High Price of Latter Makes Oil-Burning
Washington. Sept. 12. The pro
longed strike In tho East, while det
rimental In many ways, has been a
boon to oil Interests, and nowhero Is
this fact more plainly demonstrated
than in tho United States patent of
fice, whero tho work of Inventors
comes to light. Since the rich oil
strike in Texas there has been con
siderable activity among inventors
seeking to devise successful schemes
for utilizing and burning oil for fuel
purposes, both for tho production of
heat and power. But there has been
a much greater stimulation In tho
last few months, when it became ap
parent that coal prices wero to soar,
and that a cheaper fuel would be In
Up to the present time theie have
been granted about 1300 patents for
using oil for fuel. For tho ueo of gas
and vapors 2700 patents have been
Issued. At this time, however, tho
patent office Is receiving on an aver
ave of 2D applications weekly for pat
ents on devices of these two classes,
the majority of wnich are for crude
oil burners for household purposes,
loco re lives, steamboats and manu
facturing plants. These; patents fol
low two geneial lines one Is for sup
plying tho oil mixed with steam for
combustion, and tho other Is for
turning it into vapor and burning it
In that form. These two plans form
the basis Aor tho multitude of pat
ents now on record, and which nro
coming in daily. It Is stated by pat
ent office officials that there lu yet
much room for Improvement In burn
ers, and that, until less complicated
systems can he devised, which will
yet be safe, and comparatively cheap,
It Is doubtful if oil can replace coal
as the iwpular fuel, notwithstanding
the present differences In rout In fa
vor of oil.
