'*, "i* ? ^ That is Vision Held Out By Experts Who Know Field Som^ Data Which Will Cause Some Thinking to be Done Xs Lethbridge . overlooking its one beet bet in Its campaign lor cheap power?  Is producer gas the future source of power In this district, and what will Its use mean to Lethbridge? Has Letlibrldge lying latent millions of feet of five cent gas for sale? - When Mayor Hardle mentioned in the city council moetlng the other evening that he believed producer gas would be the ultimate solution of the power -problem in Lethbridge, he started a tram of thought which will probably lead to a thorough investigation of these possibilities. In order to goln some idea of the possibilities in the direction Indicated by the Mayo/, the Herald called on several of the coal experts connected with the various mines in the immediate district, and although they 'would not give their names for publication, and were not prepared to go into minute details, the following striking facts -were revealed: : At the present time there are five hundred tons of sla-ck coal per day from the five mines in the district practically going to waste. One ton of slack coal will produce approximately 75,000 feet of ^producer gas.- Wlth slack coal at 50 cents per ton, C'roducer gas can be manufactured at ithree cents per thousand. It can be sold at five cents per thousand and make a ^ood profit. The volume ot gas produced from one-4oa-�&'BlBck>coal7 if used in a producer gas engine, glves/twloe the effi-, ciency of .the same'amount of coal under a boiler. ^ It would, therefore,' be more than trie equlvalenit of'slacJc coal at 25 cents per ton.. The cost' of installing a producer.: gas power plant Is slightly highei^than for a steam plant, but the cost of oJ>-^ tratlon is slightly lower. ' Producer gas engines have been brought to a high state of efficiency in: European countries. Producer gas has better explosive; qualities In engines than natural gas, but for heating purposes, the, ^ffl-olen'cy of natural gas Is about five times that produced, from coal. Will Revolutionize Power Problejn . Prom the foregoing, it will be seen that the possibilities of produce-r gas In the vicinity of Lethbridge are almost undreamed of. * ' ; "I believe it will eventually; revolutionize the power question here," said one expert this morning, "and .U seo no reason 'why Lethbridge shQuld not take immense strides-in the. Industrial world once the possibilities , of the field are proven." . ; In'side five years, the coal output from the Lethbridge field will be mere than doubled. This �will mean that there' will be one thousand tons at least of slack available dally.^ On-a ,very conservative estimate this will generate 50,000,000 feet of producer gas'a day, which, sold at 5 cenits'^^per lOOO feet, would be worth |260b. / If 5000 feet of producer gas is equal lu heating value to 1000, feet of natural gas, it is seen that natural gas: rould ha-ve to be sold at 25 cents per JOOO to comipete with the producer gas lor dom-estlc purposes. , . :i ( (Continued oh paga 7) , C. p.
