rsrzcxiXt telegram to the dispatch.i
Butlee, September 30. There is wild
excitement among oil men and the farmers
over the gusher at Callery Junction. The
well is located on the Dr. Irvine farm, about
one mile below Callery, and fully three
miles in advance of producing wells. It be
gan flowing at the rate of 300 barrels Satur
day. There were several purchasers soon
after the strike, and Heed & Davis finally
told the well and 123 acres of leases to
Forst, Russell & Co. for 35,000. A cash
payment of 55,000 was made, and the bal
ance was to be paid to-day. The sale has
not been closed, and there seems to be a
flotsam and jetsam of interests, with which a
number of lawyers are drifting
The ell, meantime, has steadily increased,
and is now flowmr 500 barrels a day. Tliis is
the history of the strike which illustrated the
rapid changes in oil region values. Some
mtmths ago Gibson &. JIcBnJe leased 25 acres
of wildcat land on the Irvine farm. Thev sold
an eighth interest to W. E. Reed, the lucky oil
man of Butler, for a derrick or rig valued at
1400. Another quarter was sold to a Jfrs.
Davis, of Pittsburg, for aboilerand machinery.
A few weeks ago a judgment was obtained
against Gibson L McBrlde for a small board
bill, an execution was issued, and the interest
of Gibson & JIcBnde was som at constable's
sale and bought bv Lawyer Davi. of Pitts
burg. Then Davis old five-sixteenths to M .
E. Keed. making the latter's entire interest
seven-sixteenths. To a driller named Jlcln
tvre Mr. Keed so'd one-sixteenth for $200.
ftn&llv Reed and Davis made a sale of the en
tire working interest to Forst. Russell fc Co.
Tins morning Gibson appeared on the scene
and brought action of eiectmcnt in Common
Picas Court, Butler county, for five-sixteenths
interest in tbe gusher and the 23 acres lease on
sale as irregular and did not divest him of
his title. He hasiemploycd Colonel Thompson
and i. jtcQuiston. while Heed S: Mclntyre
have emolojed Judge JlcCandless, and Forst,
Itussell Co, have secured Greer & Ralston.
A coinpn ise was almost effected this after
noon, but there proved to be so many conflict
ing interests that the lawyers are preparing for
court. The value of the vroperty is now rated
at from S50.0C0 to J65,0u0.
Caller; Junction farmers are so inflated that
they can scarcely determine hat bonus to ask.
It is believed that when the tods arc removed
lrom the well she will be the largest yet dis
covered in the hundred foot sand.
