From Mines and Oil Fields
FOR OIL INDUSTRY
More Than 70,000 Men Are Em
ployed in California's Fields.
ALLAN G. NICHOLS
Only a half century old the oil in
dustry In the United Ktntnn has al
ready exported moro than $2,000,000,
--900 worth of "the refined material. In
other words, In fifty years tho total
amount received for refined oil ex
ported lias been greater tlian the value
of the entire production of Rold In the
United States Blnco Columbus discov
ered America. Since 1866, the year In
■which sixty small casks were sent to
Franco ns a experimental shipment,
the amount exported has been greater
In value than tho production of gold
In the entire world for tho same pe
riod. Within the memory of llvlne
man tho Infant has srown to a giant
Industry that gives employment to 70,
--000 men In the fields nnd refineries
alone, and whose annual pay roll
amounts to millions of dollars.
Tho spring pole rig used along Oil
creek has given place to modern ma
chinery, operated by carefully trained
men. The ox trains that hauled oil In
barrels over roads, unworthy of the
name, havo been lUCceeded by thou
sands of miles of iteel pipe linn, groat
trains of oil tanks and tho modern oil
carrying shlpa, whose capacity In some
cases Is over 80,000 harrels.
; Starting with Tltusville In 1859 the
wave of development hiis swept In ever
' widening ,-ircles until now nearly
every country in the civilized globe has
been pronpeetod for oil. Tremendous
fortunes have been built up either from
the production of tho crude material
or from the refining and transporta
tion of the same.
Probably In no one state In the
Union have the results been more Im
portant than in California. While our
oil is not co high in gravity and not
no valuable for refining purposes, it
has solved for us the fuel question,
the one most Important In tho develop
ment of any country. Chenp fuel Is
cheap power, and power is the main
spring of civilization.
Bj tho use of fuel In this Rtato the
grcac railroad systems have been able
to pay dividend* on account of the
' money snved by tho difference In the
cost of the transportation of fuel.
While development work was started
In California at an early date, no great
amount of oil was produced until the
late eighties, when fuel oil was pro
duced in large quantities 1n the city
of Ix>s Angeles and after It was dem
onstrated that here was a fuel low
in price and high In efficiency the in
dustry grew rapidly.
After the development of the great
Kern river field, whose production waa
IdeH for fuel purposes, and after til'
railroads had adopted the new fuel,
came tho question of transpbrtatlon,
which for a time was a very serious
one, but this problem has now' been
solved by the building of pipe lines,
the construction of tank cars and the
building of tank ships, so that at the
present time the consumer and pro
ducer are In close touch.
Tho amount received for crude ol
for the year Just past will be In the
neighborhood of $40,000,000. a sum al
most double the value of the gold pro
duced In the same time and well In
excess of the combined output of koUI,
nilver, lead and copper. The vulue of
the crude i oil at the wells is at the
present time largely In excess of the
aggregato value Of the entire citrus
crop packed In boxes and loaded on
cars for shipment.
The refining Industry his moro than
kept pace with the production and
transportation. There ar^ mw thirty
five refineries in the plate, ranging
from tho two-still plant to the enor
mous $12,000,000 refinery of th> Stan
dard Oil company at Point Richmond.
Theso refineries manufneturj practi
cally everything that Is inn do from
crude oil. with the exception i>f pc.raf-

The amount of money Invested In the
oil Industry In California Is extremely
hard to estimate, hut it is many mil
lions of dollars, while the amount re
turned to the owners of oil lands and
stockholders in oil companies Is con
stantly on the Increase. Listed stock
companies have paid in dividends $27.
--000 000 It should be borne in mind
that this only accounts for about
elghty-flv» companies, whereas the
number now in existence In something
like 900. While, of course, not nearly
all of these 900 are dividend payers,
there are more that pay dividends
whose stock Is not listed than the num
ber of companies whoso stock Is dally
called on the exchanges. Such com
panies as the Standard, whose divi
dends are enormous; the California Oil
Fields Limited, who for several yoars
have paid from 30 to 40 per cent per
annum, besides doubling their holdings,
do not list their stock, and tho enor
mous amount paid in dividends does
not appear in the tables quoted.

GOLDFIELD PRODUCTION IS
OVER $1,000-000 A'MONTH
If any one thinks that Goldfleld is
not doing anything ho must halt at
thvso figures, says the Tribune. More
thnn a million dollars was taken out
of tho ground by the (Joldfleld Consoli
dated Mines company during March,
and a net profit of 1730,000 was secured
upon which dividends will be paid to
stockholders. J. R. Finlay, general
manager, In his preliminary report
for the month of March, estimates the
production of the Consolidated mines
at 26,617 tons, with a gross value of
$1,015,000. The gold recovered was ap
proximately $950,000, with expenses of
$220,000, and a net profit of $750,000.
Production of a million dollars a
month from the Consolidated is con
trolled only by the capacity of the big
mill to assimilate the gold that could
be poured Into Its troughs, and it Is
probable that each succeeding month
will witness a general average of ap
proximately the record for March.
From the grass roots to the 1000-foot
level the Consolidated never in the past
looked as well as It does today.

WIZARD OF GOLDFIELD

Former Manager of Famous

OOLDFIELJ3, New, April 2T.- Wil

sociated In mining with I .on Angelei
operators, has left Ooldfleld for Stew
art, B. c., to engage In mining In one
of the new districts now rapidly com
ing intu prominence near the boundary
line of southern Alaska. Mr. Mac-
Kay was one of the pioneers of Gold
field and during the period of five
years In this district he has taken
over $4,000,000 worth of sold OUI of the
ground for the various leasing com
panies whose operations lie has con
ducted. Tn the early days of the camp
he was tn charge of the bonanza lease
on the Quartzlte and later shipped
large quantities of high grade from
the Jumbo and was manege? of the
famous Frances-Mohawk lease, the
second in point of production in the
history of tho camp.
For several months pnst h" has been
In charge of development for the I>in

The Real Value of Any Proposition Is Its
Truth and Speculative Features
IF THE TRUTH is worth anything to you—read on. At this time the country is wild upon the ques
tion of Oil, simply because there is great profit in the products of the hundreds of wells in California.
The phenomenal gushers recently struck in the Midway field have led many to suppose that in that
particular section only can oil be found in paying quantities.
