OIL STOCK VALUES
HIGHER FOR JUNE
While Sales Were Fewer, the
Prevailing Price Was Better
Than in May.
NEW STIMULUS TO TRADING.

Beaumont. Tex.. July 4. With a decrease
of a few more than 75.00) shares In the
number of stocks sold on the floor of tho
Beaumont Oil Exchange In the month of
June, It is estimated that the Increase of
the value of the Btocka traded, as com
pared with May. was between J7I.0W and
tSS.OW. As it is not probablo that the total
sales were in excess of half a million dol
lars for the month, the increase assumes
The figures show that In June the total
number of shares bought and sold was 1
3)1.25. while the total for May was ZZTt.
4S3. showing a decrease for June of 76,0.
The shares sold in June brought on an
average some CO per cent more in the mar
ket than did those sold In May, with the
result that the total of the sum for which
the June sales were made was much In
excess of that for which the larger volume
of May shares was sold.
As stock prices for June have run from,
i cent for Dividend a 1-cent stock to JsO
or such a matter for Guffey and Hey wood.
It Is manifestly difficult to estimate the
-alue of a "share" of stock; but as a rulo
the biggest traders are stocks at 15 cents
and under, and the aerage price per share
may be roughly estimated at 10 cents.
All Stocks Sliorr Strength.
To cite a few Instances of the Increased
value, it may be mentioned that Hlggins,
which has been hovering near J50, sold on
Saturday of last week lor J66.5U, and was
held at $70 on the last day of the month,
bids of JCS being helpless to drag It forth.
Ground Floor, which had slumped off to
75 cents, was sold largely In June at 1U
and even as high as Jtiu. Dividend, "float

sales at 1 cent, and large sales at lh cents

2S cents and 30 cents. M., K. & T.. Con
tinental National. Independence, Gladys of
Beaumont and Buffalo were among the
score of stocks that showed material ad
vances during the month.
Icrenxed Price of Oil.
But while the stock market has shown
improvement, and the prices of the good
stocks have grown firmer, and many of
the weak and poorly managed companies
have disappeared from view, there Is a yet
more encouraging sign of the times found In
the Increased price of oil. Previous to June
the price level for oil, delivered free on
board at Gladys City, has been in the neigh
borhood of 7 cents taking the run of short
and long, small and large contracts. Now
It Is approximately 15 cents with a dally
advance, and a steady progress toward at
leat a 5-cent advance during July.
It is a fact that few companies are
paing the least attention to bids of less
than 15 cents per barrel, on any kind of
contract; and It is impossible, according to
the best Information at hand just now, to
moke a long-term contract at that sum, or
even at 20 cents. There Is a general belief
that the price of ell will have reached 40
cents by November, and therefore the com
panies refuse to make contracts at a less
price for any period that covers that time.
some oi tne larger companies aro reaiiy
buying more oil than they are selling, and
they arc delivering It themselves. Their
pipe lines are run to the mouths of the
wells of small companies, and as much oil
ns they can draw from the wells Is turned
into their tanks. The price for this oil Is.
of course, much lew than that for oil
which Is delivered by the seller Into cars
that are furnished by the seller. It In
probable that the price level for such con
tracts Is in the neighborhood of 5 cents per
neport of Tnnk Facilities.
The report of the tankage at the end of
June Is awaited with Interest. The last
report showed that there was almost .
000 barrels of tankage of all kinds, either
under way or projected, and It Is expected
that most of this tankage, being chiefly
earthen reservoirs, has been completed be
fore this time. It is quite another ques
tion, however, when an attempt Is made to
estimate the amount of oil that is in stor
age. The last report showed a total of
about 5.000,000 barrels. Opinion Is divided
as to whether there has been an Increase or
a decrease In that Item, during the month
The shipments have bet-n almost half a
million barrels greater than they were In
May. and this, tt is contended, has made
an Increase In the storage total a practical
impossibility. On the other hand, the con
tention Is made that half a million barrels
is no such sum as would be necessary to
make a serious Impression upon the supply
that can be furnished by the field. Half a
million barrels, ft Is contended, should not
do more than reduce, by one-eighth, the
field's ability to fill the 4.000.000 additional
tankage that. It Is estimated, has been
made ready during the month.
The outlook for July Is more encouraging,
even than was that of June. In the flrit
Blace, there is none of the unsettled pub
c sentiment In regard to the longevity and
productiveness of the field that had to be
encountered at the beginning of June. The
public has come to regard the imminence
of decreased gas pressure with the same
serenity that the wen-posted men of the oil
field have long been regarding it as a mat
ter that -Is rather to be looked forward to
than to be dreaded. The stock market Is
In much bitter condition than it was thirty
days ago, and not a small part of the Im
provement Is due to the disappearance of
certain notoriously weak stocks from the
Better 3fean. of Transportation.
The transportation problem Is gradually
becoming less distressful. Not only Is the
number of tank cars being steadily and
rapidly Increased, but the oil tank steamers
are becoming refreshingly more numerous.
The first of the Guffey fleet was here two
weeks or more ago. and has reported safely
In New York with Its first cargo of olL
On the last day of the month, nlnp ves
sels, large and small, were loading at Sabine
Pass a greater number tkan ever before
assembled there at one time. It is expected
that July will find the fleet of oil steamers
There has been no decrease in the excess
of demand over ability to supply. From
every section, the call for oil has been
greater than th transportation facilities
could permit to be filled.
The substantial progress of the month In
the matter of building refineries, and set
tling tanks and pipe lines, and in progress
on work that had previously been begun,
has been phenomenal. Every energy has
been put forth to complete the Burt re
finery, the Guffey refinery, the Penman
steel works, the Central Asphalt and Re
fining Company's plant and the dozen of
Jh.e5. ,eEs.e,V, P'ant3 n'J reflneries 'In the
vicinity of Beaumont. It Is expected that
they will be very clcse to completion by the
