XfirrML GAS FAILING.
That which comes easily is not re
garded with the same favor nor held
in similar esteem to that which is
more difficult to secure, even though
both have equal value for the results
sought And so it is with natural gas
lor fuel purposes. Thousands o mil
lions of cubic feet were worse than
wasted; prodigality was the rule in its
use; in fact, forming an opinion from
the practices of those who supplied it
and those who used it, the idea was to
see which could outdo the other in
recklessness. It seemed as if both
suppliers and users had joined in the
bdief that there could be no end to
the good thing tbat was thrown out in
vast volumes from Nature's store
house. The chauge came, however,
and with it the lime for paying up
lor past transgressions. Veakeuing
pressures and diminished volume
aroused the suppliers, who, with as
much intemperance in their schemes
for metering and increased payments
as formerly characterized their lavish
ness and wastefulness, awoke to
the fact that to keep in the
swim they must regulate the How of
the tide. Their regulations grew so
4'prouounced' that the price was
finally placed at a point where tbe
larger manufacturing concerns "looked
lvickward" at their old servant, coal,
which, it would seem, is again in a
fair way to assume its sway in Pitts
burg. While we do not wish to be
understood as saying that "King
CoaP is to at once regain his su
premacy in the "Smoky City," it is
nevertheless true that his return
is certain, although the immediate
rate of progress may be slow. These
remarks were brought ont by advices
received the other day from Pittsburg,
to the following effect: "The Penn
sylvania Tube Company is preparing
to turn to the use of coal for fuel pur
poses. At the present time thirteen
regenerator gas-producer furnaces are
being put in the works by the Smy the
& Langhlin company, some of which
will be ready to use in about thirty
days. The company has had this
in contemplation ever since the
price of natural gas began lo go
upward, or to the point where it was
a question whether its use was more
economical than that of coal. Slack
coal will Ih used for makiug gas in
the regenerators. This is the first in
dustrial institution in Pittsburg to
aiinndon natural gas entirely and lo
start to using manufactured gas for
fuel purposes. Some other firms havo
the question under consideration." ;
In the meantime there can
be no doubt that the makers of
artificial gas are under great obliga
tions lo the suppliers of natural gas. '
in that the prodigality of the latter ' WEST
taught the honskecpers of the natural .
Kas districts much in respect to the ,
intrinsic merits of gas as a domestic i
aid. And it may be accepted as an I
assured met urn wncn nature s pro
duce gives out, the artiGcial gas mau
nlactnrer will have rich fields lo glean

yesterday made a mile in the above

proud of this achievement, and the
whole Pacific coast can share in the
honor of having produced a horse to
beat the world, This leaves "Tenny"
behind, and New York, with their
favorite, must take a back seat

statistics and information in reference
to the production of pig-iron. By

destined soon to become the leading
producer of pig-iron in the world,
possibly reaching this distinction in
the calendar year 1S90. Daring the
calendar year 1SS9 the production of
pig-iron by Great Britain, which has
annually produced more pig-iron
than any other country, is shown by
official statistics to have been 9,321,
553 tons of 2,009 pounds. It will be
seen from these figures that the quan
tity of pig-iron produced in the
United States during the census year
1S90 was 25S1G Ions in excess of" the
production of Great Britain during
the calendar year 1SS9. No statistics
are available for the output of pig
iron by Great Britain during the
twelve months ended June SO, 1890,
so that comparisons cannot be made
for the same period as that covered by
the census statistics.
Govekxos FEcnr, of Washington,
issued a proclamation on August 25th
convening the Legislature in extra
session on "Wednesday, September 3d,
at noon, for the purpose of enacting
a legislative apportionment law. It is
not expected that the session will be
longer than ten days. The only busi
ness to be disposed of is the enact
ment of an apportionment bill to pro
vide for the re-districting of the State
into senatorial districts. There will
probably be several bills presented
embodying different schemes for re
districting, which may require scv
oral davs to harmonize.
