The only excitement north of the Ohio
Tiver was near Undercllu". on the Pittsburg
and Wetern R"tllrrd,when John M. Patter
ton & Sohu brought in a good 30-foot well on
tne Kcssler farm. Iherowero at least a
dozen wells drilled around the Kessler, hut
only two of tsetn are making enongh oil to
call them producers. The field as a whole
has proven a failure.
Except in the vicinity of Brownsdale,
operation in Sutler county are practically
at a standstill. Zelienople and Harmony are
dead to the world so tar as new work is con
cerned, and the Garvin pool south of Evans
Citr" has assumed a graveyard appearance.
Jforthwest of Allegheny City several gas
companies have kept a few strings of tools
unning. and have been bringing in passers
whose pressure ranged from 100 to 200
pounds. Nothing hie in that line, however,
or any oil wells has been developed.
In what is known as the Plnhookgas
field, around Milltown, three miles east of
Verona, oil has been found in the 100-root
tand, Imt as the parties drilling the wells
were titter cas thoy cased off the oil and
went on down. In only one or two wells,
Iiowever. was the showing sufficient to sup

Developments at Sistersvllle.
The greatest activity during the entire
f year, and the most important developments
bavebesu iu what Is now the Sistersvllle
field, located on the Ohio river, 40 miles be
low Wheeling, W. Va. Oil is found on both
, the Ohio and West Virginia sides or the
river. The field takes its name from what
was the village of Sistersvllle, in Tyler
county, W. Va., and it in turn was.natnea,
iue three score years ago, after two sis
ters by the name of Wells.
It is more tlun a year ago since some ven
turesome ti ildcatters got a showing or oil In
w hat is the present sistersvllle Held. Lnd-w-g&
M -oney struck the old Polecat well,
which was probably the first in the region
to show any encouraging amount of oil.
Then William Johnson, and Cnarles Dnel
Aand J. C Tennant went to work and after a
T(tiT-rvat de.il of labor demonstrated to the oil
liioducingpublle that the field was worth?
fomethtmr. Thii was all that was needed,
and lHtelaot swing a rush was mude for the
tiew L'ldurudo. The natives of the slumber
ing old village wero amazed when
one morning they j.wok to eo der
licks atfd tanks being built on
e erj- lot and farm: and pipe lines being laid
across "'Mr fertile meadows. Prom a popu
lation 300 or ton it jumped to over 1,500 iif
u cour -- ot weeks: and iroin a production of
390 r 49u barrels a day It went to over 15,000
barrels a. day.
Nearly 200 wells have been drilled in the
field, but at the piesent time it ih generally
liilleved that the producing sind has been
pretty well defined, with the exception of a
narrow streaK towarc me suuinwest, on
the West Virginia siae or the river. Some
pood wells were recently broucht in in that
direction, especially on the Keener prop
eitv. Thev showed little nr no salt water,
I'nd flowed naturally. The oil lound at
Sistersvllle, by the way. is struck in the Big
Injun sana, at a depth ot from 1,400 to 1,600
Always Plenty of Salt Water.
With the exceptions Just noted, every well
In the field produces Irom 5 to 0 times as
much salt water as it does oil. Frequently,
a tcr h well has been pumping saltwater
for weeks, it will commence to show con
siderable oil and eventually turn into a fair
The present field is about four miles wide
from east to west, and five miles from north
east to southwest on a 22 degree line. The
capacity of the wells ranses from 39 to 400
b-irreU a day, and in the last eight months
tlie field has produced almost 2,000,000 barrels
or petioleum. There is yet within the
limits or the defined territory plenty of
Muff which lias not been drilled, and with a
uetter price lor oil tue production would
prooubly be increased quickly by the drill
ing ot new uolls.
There U still more being dono around
fisterville than in any other part of the
Pennsylvania, New York or West Virginia
fields, but it is very probable that as soon as
ISistoisvllle goe down another field will be
speedily btought to the notice or the oper
ators. This at least has been the history of the
oil country, and it is not improbable that
the -ieit field will be in Doddridge county,
W. Va., almost due east or Sistersvllle. There
liuve been several good ells drilled iu that
locality already and others aro now golmr
down. They are, however, from 10 to 15
miies from the Baltimore and Ohio Kail
load, and little definite imormation has been
heard from them, except that they were producer-.
It is claimed that there are a couple of
"wells some eight miles apart on a northeast
and southwest line which are showing oil,
nml if this is the case it promises to be a
field of the first magnitude when fully de
veloped. , 01iiofc Xndlnna and. Kentucky.
The Ohio and Indiana fields, particularly
the lntter. have at various times during the
year been boomed energetically, bnt the re
sults do not show that they have come np to
the expectations of the boomers.
No new pools ot any importance have
been developed In the Ohio fields. Spurs
ana extensions ot the old pools have been
loilowed n l) and occasionally a well was
found which spurted oil, water and mud for
a few hours at an enormous rate, but none of
them hold out.
Tne Indiana field seems to have been
greatly overestimated according to the re
ports which are brought back by Pennsyl
vaiiia operators who have visited it. The
Bind, tuey claim, is extremely spotted and
Trf-achei us and tho size ot the wells de
veloped does not pay In the long run. Host
o. the .-operating has been done around
Portland, the county seat of Jay county, in
the northeastern part of the State. Outside
ot J.ty county very little is being done.
KentucKy has once every few months
made a claim tor recosnition from her oil
trade. Out as votnotbing has been developed
nich warrants the placing of any reliance
on tlie State as a gieat producing lezion.
1 here have been a number of wells drilled
mid numerous efforts made to open the tern

The oil is found in the Trenton limestone
mul is of about the same quality as the Ohio
oil. The regions in which it has been found
are loniote from the railroads or rivers, and
lis there are yet no pipe lines through the

The pro luctinn of the Pennsylvania, New
"York and Uest Vir-inia fields during the
j ear has at eraged 87,845 barrels a day. This
average Is greater tnun forany other year in
the oil business, with the exception of 1S91,
-when the daily average output was 94,930
lxirrels In 1SS0, when Bradford was Hear
ing the zenith of its glory, the production
was only 7L1C7: in 1SS1 It was 74,954, and in
ltS2, when tlie Cherry Grove gushers wero
lrvelopcd, lliotiverage went to 81,303 barrels.
The next j ear it declined to 63,336. In 1S83,
Jollomiig the shutdown movement, it was
onb 40,700. and in 1E90, when Wlldwood was
a: lis nest, the uernge was up to 73.5S3
lwrrels. In Janu 1 1 y, 1891, the dally average
.jKodnctioji was 94,419. and ror the month of
December U was 78,000, a decline of over
12.003 barrels a day.
Decline in Completed "Wells.
There has been a remarkablo falling off in
tho number of wells completed daring the
year. Tho number Is less than it has ever
been, with the exceptions of the years 1SS7
and 1883. The total for the year Is 1,899, only
iibnut one-half the number finished in 189L
End only one-third or the number completed
in 18P0. The only reason that can be given
ji.r this cessation ot wotk Is the extremely
low pi ice of crude.
xnere ate now zuu wens uniting In the
various fields, and the average at the close
of each mouth during the year Just closed
was 213. This is only one-half tne number
aveiugel in 1891.
There was an Increase In stocks during
the past year tram 16,500,000 barrels in Janu
ary to 1D,1C0,C09 barrels in August, when
ttfv began to decline, and are now don u to
eveal New Pipe lane.
The j ear 1892 will be remembered as the
, j ear in which several new and independent
'pipe lines wero completed. It will also be
remembered as the year in which tho first
individual line was completed to the sea
hoard. Tlrst tho W. L. Jlcllon line was laid from
tne McDonald field to Coraopolls, where
tank cats were loaded with oil and shipped
tu tuo Independent refineries. Then the
Producers OH Company ent Into tho busi
ness and put down aline to Coraopolls, and
cn'HHi'Zircd feeding the lank cars.
mi hi ufterWHi'U W. L. Mellon organized the
C. -e,.fit Pipe Lino Company and con-
cue a pipe line irora tne McDonald Hold J
to Xlarcus -Hook, a shipping point on the
Delaware rlvrr below Philadelphia. This
line was completed last Ootober.
Then the Producers and Ktfiners Pipe Line
Compan v whb organized and a line was laid
from McDonald, north through the Butler
county region to Oil City and Tltusville,
where mot of the independent refineries
aro located. This linn has been completed
and oil Is now being pumped through it.
Some one next proposed n pipe line
through tlie northorn tier onuntries of the
State which would connect the northern end
or the Producers and Uefiners line with the
seaboard. This scheme was immediately
adopted and rconey was subscribed to build
such a line. Contractors are working on it
now, and the projectors claim that they will
he able to pump oil by the 1st of April.
Big Sales D urine the Tear.
It would scarcely do to pass over some of
tho larger cales of oil property which oc
curred in 1832. Tho Millers Run Oil Com
pany started the selling by disposing of a
big block of territory, on tlie Ohio side of
the river in the Sistersvllle field, to the
Ilenry Oil Company, of Chicago, for some
thing like $115,000. It was considered at the
time a good price for the property. Not
long ago, after months of negotiating,
Messrs. B. Forst and C. D. Greenlee sold to
the Tidal Oil Company, of Kbit York, which
was organized by a W. Scofleld, lortrerly
an tipper oil country operator, a large block
or developed territory in the McDonald field
for about 33J3,00a It had produced over
1.000,000 ban els of oil and had seen its best
days when the transfer wns made
Only recently the Victor Oil Comptny
paid the Independence oil Company $26,000
JorbtJ acres or land soutn west ot tne iun u
o Sistersvllle, on which there was one well,
making 35 barrels a day.
Early in December Bitts & Walker, of
Butler, sold to the McCnlmont OH Company
a block ol 100-foot property that lias a
monthly production or 13.C00 bariels. The
consideration was $75,000.
Tlie Situation Warrants Better Prices,
The situation at present is bullish. With
the exception of 'Doddridge county, W,
Va., no new fields are in sight. McDonald Is
on the decline and Sistersvllle has reached
almost the keystone. The upper county and
Butler fields are practicallv dead. Very
little new work is beinu started in the lower
districts, except what'is absolutely neces
sary to protect tho leases, lhere is a de
cline or nearly one-half in completed
wells. The shipments are increas
ing, while tho stocks are declining.
Ohio and ltnssla are no longer the hug-a-boo
they were a year ago. With steadily In
creasing shipments, the stocks of legitimate
Pennsylvania Qil will rapldlv fall off, and It
is this fact which leads the Pennsylvania
producers to believe that better prices ate
in store for them, and that they will soon
reap the benefits. Another bullish factor is
the new pipe lines. They should create
competition and thus bung to the producer
better remuneration for his work.
