GERIN SPIES, It. !., April lO.-Tlic Providence Journiil Ihla morning prints tlie following Interesting article: "Col. ,T. W. Allison, whoso activities In connection with the purchase of war niaterlals for Canada and Great, i Britain are now being investigated in Ottawa, ,Tnd who with his associates has shared a rake oil" of millions of doUnrs ns i)ront on war contracts, has heen a close uSBOclalo of some liigh olllclals on both sides of the ocean. "One ot the men employing Col. Allison, knowing at the lime exactly what the piu'chasor of supplies was doing, was air Arthur Trevor Lawson, nuin-nglng director of Vlckers Mraited, of England, who came to this country early in 1915 and made purchases ot millions ot dollars worth ot supplies for the Britisli admiralty. Chummy With Spies "In April ot last year the Providence .ronrnal learned that Allison, who had a suite of rooms ut the Manhattan hotel, was being shadowed dally by Ger-num splfca, who had rooms on the same lloor of that, hotel, and that two ot the spies had become personally acquainted with him and were on such terms that he talked freely with them concerning his business. "11 was directly from a source In the employ of the German embassy that the Journal learned ot AllIson'H connection with Sir Trevor Tlawson. for whom he was seeking to place very large contracts with a number ot firms. The Germans were using their knowledge to overbid Sir Trevor Dawson's bids with the intention ot carrying the competition up to a certain point and then dropjiing ft iu order first to waste all the time possible for manufacture and delivery, end second, to compel tiie British representative to pay suijis jrreatly in excess ot actua market values in order to got the goods. Were Constantly Meeting "The Journal verified, through its own sources of information the tact that Sir Trevor Dawson and Allison were constantly meeting both in Allison's rooms, 259 and 2 0 Hotel Manhattan and also at Sir Trevor Dawson's rooms in the Waldorf Astoria, and that Eugene Lignanti was present at more than one ot these conferences. ' On April 20, 1015, the Journal interviewed Sir Trevor Dawson in his rooms at the Waldorf with regard to his mission in this country, and, in the course of conversation, Sir Trevor was notified of Allison's transactions and of the fact that he was securing great sums as commissions on everything he was purchasing. "Sir Trevor said that his business' was practically concluded in this country and that his passage was booked for his return trip on the Lusl-tania, leaving New York on March 1st. On Thursday, April 29, the Journal was notllied from Gernian ombasay sources that, while it was true Sir Trevor Dawson had booked his passage aiul made all arrangements for sailing on the Lusitania two days later, he would not sail on that ship. On Sunday, May 2, Sir Trevor. Dawson visited the representative ot the Providence Journal iu New York and,! on the latter expressing surprise that ho had not sailed on the day before on the Ivuaitauia, he replied that he had changed his mind at the lust moment. "Sir Trevor then went on to ask it the Providence Journal intended to make any public-statement iif that time with regard to his knowledge of Allison. He was informed 'that no such publication was contemplated." W. MUIR EDWARDS, Professor of Civil and Municipal Engineering anew Collar S&me ityle in Red Libel quftliiy JELLICOE-3 for 50c.

Muir Rdwnrds, iiroles-Hor of civil and municipal cntinccrlng nnivurslty ot Alburlu. In the first article of IhiK scries a consideration of tlic units and llu! do velopment of power by Hluaiii iilanis was undertaken. In this corin(;( it was pointed out Unit on an avcniKc only ten pur cent of iho energy value of the fuel was recovered as iiricful work. To Improve this pcn-enta^c! was naturally the goal of nuiny investigators and In this seai-ch llie internal combustion engine was evolved. 'I'hiii type of enHino is known (lopularly as the "gas engine." In this tyiie of engine the chemical energy of the fuel is developed In a short period of time, the resulting reaction being usually desIgnatHd as an explosion. As a result of the rapidity of the action a large body of ht'iit energy is released almost instantaneously. Since the results of the ex-Iilofiive reactions are gases wlUch obey the physical laws connecting heat and pressure, an e.xlreinely hifih pressure Is, therefore, dev(>lni)e(l in the combustion chamber. Tlie piston In the cylinder Is thus driven out in its working stroke. The Inertia of its; inovihg parts carries the engine through the cycle reiiuired to e.vpol the waste gases, and take in, com|)ress and explode a new charge. In the inlenial combustion engine, the fuel must be a gas or a vapor. To utilize the chemical energy In coal it is, therefore, necessary to obtain from the fuel a gas suitable tor use in a gas engine. Such a IS blended from selected Mli-grown teas, famed itor their Sine Havoury qualities. Imitated yet never equalled. R.GXONS &CO. LiMiTW 'wiNiMi>>eU no more thari the oi-cjlnary kinds.

BAUSR & DLACUCChloaso *ud N'tw York niakore of Sursical Pressipgs, txo, IScandSiSc at Druggists Blue ^ jay is accomplished by the gas-producer plant, the gas beins partially obtained directly from the coal hy oxidization and partially from water vapor led through the incundoacent fuel to form the so-called- water gas. About T.'i per cent of the energy in the coal is transformed into latent energy in the gas obtained from tlie producer. " The gas engine in which this producer gas is exploded will deliver as useful work, about 20 per com of the heat energy contained in this gas. Thus-the total etJIdency of transfor-matipn from coal pile to power delivered by uso^f a producer plant and a gas engine is approximately 1.=; per cent. This value varies somewhat and might he placed at from 15 to 20 per cent. If other fuels such as natural gis, crude oil, gasoline or llluminati.-'.i; gas be used the efliciency of ths engine on a "fuel to lower deliverad ' basis varies from 10 to 80 per cent t\'> cording to the fuel and type of cr.^inc used. Some of 'these fuels such ;..s crude oU or i,iatural sas are also burr-'ed beneath boilers in a steam i plant. In'tliis case the otlicieney if the furnace and boiler is greater t!:an for coal and a corresponding incr�a-iJ ! in over all efflcioucy results. llowe;'( r it is more economical in the majorit.v ot cases to use this type of fuel i-.i an internal combustion engine. 1 Since, even with coal as a fuel the ! degree of recovery ot lieat values is I greater witii ga.s engines than v.-kh j steam plants, It might appear that the would supercede the latter. Hut when considorinK the relative v,iluos of these two types or indeed when comparing different designs of either type It must be remembered that there may be a considerable extra cost retjuirad to obtain the increased efliciency, and thus the Installa-tlou which is financially most attractive is not necessarily that giving the greatest percentage recovering of the heat value in the raw fuel. Just here it might bo noted that a steam plant in which the exhaust steam can be used for heating purposes Is a most economical proposition and this consideration often justilics the small local unit whose power efliciency considered separately may be much lower than that of a central station but whose over-all efficiency, considering the heating work done, is much greater. We turn now to an entirely different source of power, o,g,, that possessed by a mass in motion or so situated that it can descend. The conuner-ciel form of this class Is the water power. Canada Is extremely forlun- i ate In the magnitude and di^'iribulion of her possible hydraulic developments. Such a source of power offers n^any attractions and if the Initial cost of construction is not too great and the continuity of service is assured it has certainly great commercial possibilities. Each pound of walor which descends one vertical toot in Us patli to the sea represents an energy of one foot-pound but. unlass this descent Is accomplished In a restrlctod horlzon-ta! distance it Is impossible to commercially .utilize such a soui'ce. If a natural water-fall is not avallahlo It is thus uQcessary to create an artificial one hy t'la construction of a dam. Such a structure requires suitable foundation, and its size must be such that the cost of development may not bo prohibitive, it is thus only at suitable located points in the stream that hydrauilo davelopment can take plttca and for commercial suocesa such Igcalions must not be too far away from the i)olnt of power consumption. In a hydraulic plant the energy of the despendiiiK w�ter is turned into usaful work by means of turbines or water whaelg. It Is possible to recover. In spch an installation, a much larger porcentttge of the total energy in the' source than Is possible with either a'steam or giia plant, A well dpBlsned ' tuvhlno can be relied upon to deliver 80 par cent of the water energy as useful work. Due to" the .distftnee at which hydraulic plajitg itrg located in refer-ehoo to point of ..oohsumptlon it Is ,UB>la] to use ,the T.Rter power to develop eisptrlcul eBS�'8y- 'J^^his is a9-cpmplished by dynftmos connected to the Sv&ter .driven Hurblnes and the oleotrlodl anorgy so developed Is carried by ^ti't^nsroisHlon lines to the poliit of conau^nptlou. u,ere tho ovtr-runt sOi^y .h(} .usad to drive motors from which iho u.'sual fmnis of energy may be obtained or else is usrid ilirectl.i lor licating, llglilint; nr clii'iii-ical puriioses.
