IRON TRADE IS QCIET
But the Market Is Characterized by
THE CURRENT BUYING IS LIGHT
Mill* Running to Full Capacity-
Keen Interest ia Pis Iron
Jleveland, Ohio, May 9.—The Iron Trade
Review for this week says:
Quietness with sustained strength char
acterizes the iron market. There is activ
ity that not long back would have been
considered noteworthy, but In compari
son with the record of March, which in
pig iron was unprecedented, the current
buying is light. Mills are running to
their utmost capacity on nearly all de
scriptions of products, though in plates
there Is not the accumulation of orders
that was noticed in the winter and early
spring. Rail business has not been cut
off by the advance, but it is now evident
that further new business for delivery
this year must be taken care of in mills
eest of Pittsburg.
The course of pig iron production is
being watched with interest by the trade.
Buyers seem to be proceeding on the
assumption that consumption will be over
taken shortly and that the active blast
furnace capacity will be sufficient to pre
serve stable prices through the year—at
least to guarantee against any material
advance. Two of the large new central
■western furnaces have just gone into blast;
another is to follow shortly and others
■will come later in the year. It is already
evident that the United States Steel cor
poration will not be in the market for so
much pig iron in the second half of the
year as it bought for delivery before July
1. Foundry buying keeps up, though at
a slackened pace, and the melt of iron
in foundry cupolas is probably in excess
of any record yet made.
Sheet and tin plate works are being
driven to their full capacity. It is the
expectation that a basis Will be agreed
upon with the Amalgamated association
that will obviate the necessity of a shut
down on July 1. pending the adjustment
of the scale. The possibility of machin
ists' strikes at various points on May 20
Is one element of uncertainty. The nine
hour day and increased wage will be
granted In some cases, it appears, but the
majority of employers are expected to
refuse the double concession.

sermon of Archbishop Ryan.
Archbishop Ireland said that a complete
revision was made by Secretary Hitch
cock before his departure from Washing

called Browning ruling concerning the
education of Indian children.
Mr. Browning was commissioner of Indian
affairs under President Cleveland, and he
made the rule that Indian children registered

would not be allowed during the whole term
of their education to leave that school for a

AN OIL BOOM, MAYBE
South Dakota Stirred by Some Re
OIL UNDER THE ARTESIAN BASIN
Gas and Coal Deposits Give En
Companies Are .Moving,
Special to The Journal.
Okoboji, S. D., May 9.—The discovery of
great quantities of gas in the artesian
waters lately found in this county has re
vived the Impression, prevalent for many
years, that under the artesian basin there
is a lake of oil. The gas wLich comes
from these waters is said by the state
geologist and by the state engineer of
irrigation to be a sort of peat gas, Lav
ing no evidence of the constituents of tie
gas found in the coal and oil regions of
the east. hTis gas has been found only
within a limited area in the state. It was
first discovered when the artesian well
at the Indian school at Pierre was sunk,
some ten years ago. It was found again
when the Locke hotel well was put down
in the fall of 1890. lr, was struck later
in greater quantities when the city wells
were put down at Pierre. It was found
at the Forest City Cheyenne Ind-a.i agency
and has been found in two veils in this
How far north along the Missouri river
it extends is not known. It does not
exist at Chamberlain, so far as anyone
knows. It was not found in the great
artesian gusher which was put down there
about fifteen years ago and which was
later plugged up because* it couid not be
controlled. The gas basin probably ex
tends north along the Missouri river veil
into North Dakota, for it has been found
as far east in that state as the town of
Edgeley, where it is to be used for light
ing and heating purposes. Trifling evi
dences of it are found at Higiimore and
Miller, but the gas does not appear in
sufficient quantities to be available for
Is There Oil Under ItT
Despite the fact that the geological
authorities have claimed that there is no
oil under the gas and water basin, the be
lief is current here and in the east that
oil exists under the hard rock which un
derlies the artesian basin. The well bor
ers all claim that the well pipes In this
district rest upon granite, which cannot
be drilled through. Rev. Dr. Blackburn,
who spent tbe later years of his life as
president of the Presbyterian college at
Pierre, investigating the subject, came to
the conclusion that the gas found in this
district was a vegetable product and that
there was no oil here. He was of the
opinion that there was no gas like it any
where in the United States, portions of
Germany being the only known location of
anything analagous to it in the civilized
In spite of ell this, attempts have been
recently .made to lease large tracts of
lands in this section for the avowed pur
pose o£ ascertaining whether there is oil
under the artesian basin. A proposition
was made lately to Dr. O. H. Mann to
lease his ranch near this place. Another
proposition was made to lease the large
ranch now being enclosed by L. B. "W'ad
leigh. near Pierre. Overtures were made
to Colonel P. F. McClure to lease his farm
east of the city of Pierre. The terms ex
acted by the development companies have
been so uniformly rigorous, however, that
so far nobody has been ready to make
Former Oil Excitement.
Some years ago there was a genuine oil
excitement over the alleged discovery of
oil on the west side of the Missouri river
on a claim which had been located by
Ed Phares, a young man of Pierre. A
hole was sunk some distance in the ground
and there was said to be good evidence
of the preeence of petroleum on the water.
A flurry was created over the affair f<*r
a time, but an impression soon got out
that the hole had been "salted" and the
excitement died out.
Notwithstanding, good authorities agree
that well defined oil croppings exist on the
reservation not far west of Pierre. The
late Dr. AY. P. Wimmer declared that oil
showed plainly on a small creek about
fifty miles west of Pierre, and that he had
been in the habit of skimimng it from the
top of the water in sufficient quantities
to grease his vehicles. S. S. Clow, at one
time president of the Citizens' bank of
Pierre, made the same claim concerning
oil manifestations along water courses on
Oil croppings have been frequently
found in the soil on both sides of the Mis
souri river, but as yet these finds have
been of an inferior character and are valu
able chiefly .for the purpose of stimulating
the imagination of men who have' faith
that ultimately oil will somewhere be
found in this region In paying quantities.
Black Hills Development.
Oil croppings have been found in larger
quantities in the Black Hills. One oil
claim on the western border of the Hills
was actually staked out some years ago
by W. B. Pinkerton of Pennington county,
a late member of the legislature. A con
test arose over the claim and Pinkerton
and his friends finally sold out to an
eastern syndicate after they had been In a
state of seige behind Winchesters for sev
The eastern men fared badly with the
property. They paid Pinkerton and his
friends $12,000, but since that time they
have got little oil. They take it from the
top of the water by soaking the oil into
woolen blankets and then wringing the
blankets into barrels. The process Is
slow and they have never been able to get
more than a barrel a day from the wells.
Still there is reason to believe that oil
exists in the Black Hills in paying quan
tities. The recent discoveries In Wyom
ing have strengthened this.
Coal Deposits Give Encouragement.
The almost unlimited coal deposits
deposits which have been found along the
western border of the state and along the
Moreau river have given constant en
couragement to the oil theories of the
speculative minds in this region. This
coal bed extends practically all over
western Xorth Dakota and northwestern
Soutu Dakota. All the great territory
embodied in what is now Butte county is
a vast lignite bed. The Cheyenne reser
vation is the same after the Moreau
river is crossed. This coal is harder and
better, in the opinion of experts, than the
coal which ex-Senator Washburn is now
taking from the Washburn mines. Butte
county farmers and ranchmen have been
using it for fuel with as little effort as
they would pick up down timber. It is
found on the top of the ground and in
better quality under the surface to almost
