RETIRED FOR DISABILITY,
EARNING LARGE SALARIES.
Secretary Root Cites Instance of
Abuse of the Law Permitting Army
Officer to Retlro on Pay.
Washington, March 23. A provision con
tained in the army appropriation bill, as
passed by the House, will cause a commo
tion among- the 430 retired officers of the
army when it becomes generally known.
The bill carries JL6B.331 for the pay of
retired officers. This provision was amend
ed at the suggestion of Representative Each
o as to give the Secretary of War power
to order any officer on the retired list who
was retired for disability before a retiring
board and, if found physically competent,
he shall be returned to the actlvo list.
In his testimony on this point. Secretary
Itoot said to the House Committee on Mili
"I know one gentleman who Is receiving
retired pay on the ground of total disabili
ty and he Is, or was, receiving- a salary of
jiaCOO a year. I know of another who was
retired on total disability who Is practi
cing his profession of medicine regularly.
Just as any other doctor does, and who
was retired on total disability as Lieuten
ant of artillery and who turned up In the
Spanish war as a Captain of cavalry of vol
unteers." Thos were the only two capes mentioned
by the Secretary, but It is said there are
other similar cases.

8". L. Daniels, a Beaumont oil-well owner
has secured an option on a piece of prop
erty belonging to Chris W. Vogt. a farmer
living three miles west of Antonio, Jeffer
son County, and will begin, to bore for oil
there on April 15.
Mr. Daniels has contracted to pay $6,500
for the preliminary work for tho purpose of
demonstrating that oil exists In paying
quantities In the hills of Jefferson County.
Bis contract calls for an eight-Inch hole.
Ho originally Intended to sink It 2,000 feet,
but has now determined to go COO feet
Ma Daniels's homo is in Memphis, but he
has spent most of his time In Beaumont
since the discovery of oil there. He thinks
that there Is oil In abundance, not only In
and around Antonio, but In various other
sections. Just now he Is prospecting, in
Vlaeland, and expects to make a rich find
there. He has recently visited various
parts of the country with & geologist, and
the latter told htm that oil beds certainly
existed there, although he expressed doubt
as to whether it was In paying quantities.
Others Interested In Project.
Doctor O. O. Bryan and Ed Belsbarth of
Do Soto have also secured options on a part
of Mr. Vogt's property, and are now mak
ing arrangements to raise suwclent capital
to begin digging.
Vogt has been endeavoring for four years
to Interest financial people In the oil possi
bilities that exist In Jefferson County. His
home Is In the center of a valley that Is
surrounded on aU sides by forest hills that
are from ISO to 200 feet high. He was led to
the belief that oil existed there first by the
discovery of shale, which Is a fine-grained,
sedimentary rock of a thin and friable
structure. He did not know what It was
until one day In burning brush he noticed
that some of these rocks readily Ignited
and made a bright lire. On further investi
gation he found that a rock, weighing about
one pound, would burn for five minutes.
This ehals exists In abundance In the bills
on his farm. He can take a shovel and turn
up a basket full In three minutes time.
There are dozens of daces on tho Incline
of the hills, where some of the lower strata
of rocks have been cut through by a sub
terranean oily substance that Is almost con
stantly oozing out In a tiny stream.
OH Sla-ns for Miles Aronnd.
Since the time he made his1 flrft discovery
Vogt has been making Investigations, not
only of his own property, but of land for
several miles around. Ho has Interested his
neighbors, and they have also been making
Investigations. Now three out of every five
citizens around Antonio and Seckman Post
Office, which is about four miles north, be

quantities. Judge Henry Seckman. who
formerly represented Meramec, Central and
Roth Townships In the County Court, saya

cently been mads and the reports confirm
With a gusher ones started Mr. Daniels
says that It wlU be' an easy matter to get
the oil ready for commercial purposes. The
nearest railroad station Is Sulphur Springs,
which Is only nlno miles distant, and he
says It will be an easy task to pipe the oil
that distance. Surveys are also being made
for the proposed new St. Louis, Htllsboro
and Southwestern Railroad, which will run
