Both Scenes of Rich Strikes.
Extensive Developments ,
Now In Progress
TUSCON, March 22.—The big gold
strike at steel hill, eighteen milea east
and eight milea north of Bensron, la
■aid to in* monopolizing tho attention
of the district.
The Cochise Gold Mining and Mill
ing company has been organized, with
11. 11. Morrow, P. W. Corcoran, Beth
Merrill, Oliver Merrill, P. W. Moody,
W. J. Smith and John Magee as dl
The company is rapidly being fin
anced and work Is going ahead night
1.11,1 day. The shaft is down 80 feet
with gold values in every pound of the
ore that comes out. Borne of the ore
shows the yellow metal all through it.
The ..hall will he sunk tO I lie HID foot
depth and then a cross-cut will be run
to ascertain tin* width of the vein. All
the ore so far is the finest kind of
milling gold, it is said.
Btubbs, Heady and Baker, who own
twelve claims west of the Cochise
holdings, are going to start a.i explora
tion shaft and other mine owners In
the camp are working, and the dis
trict is very lively.
ii is said that the property of the
Montezuma Hold Mining company,
four miles from Florence, la develop
ing Into a mineral marvel. It is
showing not only the most unusual
richness In gold values, hut an as
tounding variety of metallic contents.
Assays made of two or three dif
ferent aasayers gave the following re
sults: (1) $1056.20. (2) $11.75, and (3)
$342.40, in gold per ton; and a general
average of over $500 gold a ton.
The variation In these assays is due
to the fact thai the samples were tak
en from the, different parts of the vein,
across a width of fifteen feet.

The ore also contains fine particles
of native copper and carries 18 pounds
of the native copper to the ton.

SAN ANTONIO, Tex., March 24.—
According to S. A. Hopkins, one of the
officers and principal stockholder In the.
Boston-Texas corporation, fifty wells
will be drilled by that concern on its
holdings of oil Ileitis in McMullen
county, south of this city. There are
now seventeen wells on the property,
which, without pumping, yield a little
over 600 barrels of oil a day. The work
planned will be completed by the end
of this year and will Insure a supply
Of 6000 barrels a day.
The oil is of tho very best quality
and is said to bo present in large
volume. Geological experts and prac

"Oil was being sent to a height of

there is no decrease in volume, there
must be an Increase ln the amount

Off who is a director of tin: Lake View
company and locator of the well,
"The How of oil Is steady, Indicating
that there is a. constant force behind
It. The pressure Is not of the fluctuat
ing character usual with gas, ami after
watching the well for many hours I
was Impressed with the idea that the
pressure is the same as if an outlet
from a natural reservoir of oil high
up In a hill had been struck, It seems
that the oil Is seeking to rise to Its
former level, with tho pressure of great
and constant weight behind It."
The Lake View is said to be similar
in many respects to the celebrated
Hart well In the Santa Maria
field, that was brought In live years
ago by the Union Oil company with an
initial production of 16,000 barrels
After a year the production, was In
excess of 3000 barrels dully, and it Is
now producing 400 barrels.
Because of the line quality of the
sand, no fear Is felt that the enormous
pressure will cause the wearing away

OIL FROM LAKE VIEW
BAKERSFIELD, March 24.—
heavy windstorm which swept the oil
fields Monday is said to be responsible
for losses aggregating many thousands
of dollars to companies operating
At the Lake View gusher alone It is
said that the lOSS will reach $15,000 to
$20,000. This well was spouting about
40,000 barrels a day, shooting a stream
280 feet Into the air, when caught by
the wind and carried for three miles.
it Is estimated that 60 per cent of that
day's flow was lost.
A railroad train passing three miles
away was painted black with wind
driven oily spray. •

The Standard's 10,000-barrel gusher
is near the renter of section 80, which
adjoins section 25 on the east.
Superintendent Clay says he will bo

ninety days. Mr. Clay believes the
Standard's rich sands underlie all the
Twenty-five property,', but he will get
as near the gusher as possible to begin
his exploration. .' , • . ■ ,

BIG GUSHER PROVES ABSENCE
OF WATER IN SAND
United Prepares to Start Six Rigs on
Adjoining Property and as
Many More on Section
I Now that the Mays well in section 30,
I North Midway, has started In as a.
' gigantic gusher for the. second time In |
Its brief career of a few weeks, eon- j
fldence in the future of that part of j
the iii l.i has been strengthened ten- |
fold, and it is the belief of 611 nun !
that ii number of good wells will be i
brought In on section 80 and adjoin
ing sections this spring. j
The report reliably sent out from
Bakersfleld yesterday that the Mays I
well in breaking loose for the second |
time had Increased Its production to
50,000 barrels a day has completely re
moved the element of doubt existing I
in financial circles that the well would
be nothing more than a water hole.
When the well choked several days
ago water from an upper stratum
found Its way into the casing, causing
the report to go forth that the well
was flowing only water and was there- i
fore a bad risk from a speculative
The Mays well is now reported to be

fore it choked and the United Oil com- !
pany, which owns property adjoining

within a very short time. Secretary
Hedrlck said yesterday that six rigs
Were ordered two or three weeks ago
and would be Installed on the Unlted's ',
40-acre property on section -i as soon
as received. These wells will be drilled
at the most favorable positions on the I
property and it in said to be an excel
lent speculation that at least one of I
them will prove a big gusher.
The United company has also or
dered six rigs for its eighty acres on
section 26, near the American Oilfields
property, and work here will begin as
soon as the material Is received.
Besides these twelve rigs of the
United others have been ordered for l
the several properties-, four of which

company already has two finished wells
and two drilling. One of the wells
now drilling Is expected to come in al
most any day, as it lias about reached I
the average depth of the other wells iv
