frontage on the ship side of the deep
water channel at Port Arthur, Texas,
by the Standard Oil Comjxtny. The
move was so entirely unexpected that
the independent oil operators in the
Beaumont field who have been devis
ing some means for keeping the
Standard Oil Company out of that
field are nonplussed, and do not
know what move to counter this gi
gantic deal of the great oil trust.
It is understood that the project of
forming a combine of many of the in
dependent companies for the purpose
of competing with or shutting out the
Standard Oil Company will be car
ried out on the lines originally laid
down, and that the charter of this
concern will lie filed in the secretary
of state's office here some time next
week. It will have a capital stock of
SiiO.000,000 to $100,000,000.
The details of the deal of the Stand
aril Oil Company at Port Arthur have
not yet been given out officially by the
parties directly concerned. The pur
chase not only included all the water
frout, but also the wharves aud other
By acquiring this water frontage
the Standard Oil Company obtained
absolute control of the oil field so far
as the output of oil through that deep
water port is concerned. It can
bring every existing anil prospective
oil pipe line concern that has or seeks
to have an outlet to the shipside to
It has beeu known to those on the
inside for some time that Messrs
Guffey & Galey, the pioneer oil men
in the Beaumont field have merged
their interests into that of the Stand

corporation gets access to the Guffey

Rio Verde Redivivus.
Mr. Gus Hudson was the guest of
j his brother, W. D.. luesday. Jo Mr.
, Hudson the management of the Rio
' Verde canal scheme has been turned
over, and he made the trip from Ken
tucky to complete plans relative to the
! enterprise. The Rio people had a
; scheme to irrigate a large section of
desert land lying north of Phenix by
a system contemplating storage of
; flood waters of the Verde river in the
winter and distributing the same in
the summer. The financiering of the
enterprise, which provided for the
floating of some $2,000,000 worth of
bonds, Was put in the hands of Don
ald Grant, a successful businens man
of St. Paul. He spent two years try
ing to get the money, sent representa
tives to Europe to interest foreign cap
ital, in fact left no stone unturned to
accomplish his part of the work, but
to no purpose. Mr. Hudson was also
closely identified with the work, his
field being to sell water rights under
the proposed ditch and arrange for
colonizing the new country. His ef
forts, unlike those of Mr. Grant, were
marked with signal success. Thou
sands of acres of land were sold, and
great quantities of water rights con
tracted for by the proposed settlers.
His effort was made in the richest ag
ricultural section of Kentucky, and
had the bonds been disposed of Mr.
Hudson would have located in the
Salt river valley a prosperous lot of
The failure of Mr. Grant of course
interfered with all plans, and their af
fairs have been Without life for two
years past. Lately Mr. Hudson, who
is an intensely religious person, pro
posed to the principal stockholders
that the enterprise lie turned over to
him. The method he proposes is to
go east and work exclusively among
Christians and have them take up the
bonds and people the country with
church members. The understanding
Mr. Hudson has with his mates is that
all the profits falling to him be used
in missionary work.
In these plans there is a radical dif
ference in the methods common to
promoters known here, and there will
be those who will claim that Mr. Hud
sou is anticipating the millenium,
dreaming, as it were; this as it may
be, he has started out by inducing a
bunch of hard headed and practical
business men to give him a chance to
do the work as above indicated. Je
