NEWS OF THE MINES AND OIL FIELDS
TWO BIG DOHENY COMPANIES
WILE PAY STEADY DIVIDENDS
Huastca and Mexican Petroleum Limited, by Meeting of Directors,
Are Now Ready to Distribute Earnings-One Doheny Well Alone
Yields 30,000 Barrels Daily-Over $600,000 Is Set Aside
for Pipe Line and Tank Construction - Oil the Chief
Agency in Mexico's Advancement
OH developments in Mexico under the
masterly direction of Edward L>. Do
heny are doing more for the advance
ment of that republic than any other
agency and at the same time bringing
into local people's hands large sums
derived from the output. This fact
was again emphasized yesterday when
the directors of the Huasteca Petro- |
leum company and the Mexican Pc- i
troleum company decided to declare
regular dividends. On the Mexican
Petroleum Limited the dividend will be
paid every quarter, amounting to $1
a share. The Huasteca dividend will
be one cent a share a month.
These two dividends will make a
very large total ! . earnings. The reg
ular monthly dividend of the Huasteca
will aggregate $120,000 and the quar
terly dividend of the Mexican Petro
leum limited will amount to $290,000.
The Huasteca Petroleum company is
considered the cream of all the Doheny
properties In Mexico and America and i
of It Mr. Dohony is most proud. Ha !
says that one of the wells on this
property has a production of between
28,000 and 30,000 barrels a day. This
well is only partly open and shows a
pressure of 280 pounds. This is the ca
pacity of the Tamplco pipe line. The
production is only Interrupted when
the storage facilities at Tampico and
the capacity of the Mexican National
railway to move oil, have been exhaust
ed. Oil is stored at various places
along: the pipe line.
DEVELOPMENTS UNDETt WAY
Developments now under way by th«
Doheny Mexican companies represent
an expenditure of $600,000. These de
velopments include steel storage, rein
forced concrete storage and the com
pletion of the pipe line from Tampico
to Cera Azul. The pipe for this line
Is now on the ground, the distance to
complete the line being about twenty
five miles. This line Is now open be
tween Casiano and Tampico.
The quarterly dividend of the Mexi
can Petroleum limited will be paid on
stock on record December 31. This will
be for the last quarter of 1910, and the
dividend will be distributed as soon as
possible, probably very early in Janu
The Huasteca Petroleum company
sold in October 330,333 barrels of oil,
bringing $460,481.65, Mexican currency.
The chief purchasers were the Mexican
National railway and the Waters-
Pierce Oil company, although the Hu
asteca has contracts with four other
The Mexican Petroleum produced
and sold during October 215,733 barrels
of oil, which brought $205,708.60, Mex
ican currency. The two companies have
691,527 barrels in storage.
The Huasteca company has bought
In El Paso 100 teams of the finest
mules procurable, which will be used
with 800 other teams owned by the
company In excavating for an addi
tion of twenty-two miles to the com
pany's pipeline, now seventy-six miles
in length. The pipe for this extension
is on the ground.
When additional sixty oil tank cars,
just bought by the company, reach
Tampico, 530 of these cars, including
480 owned by the Mexican National
railways, will be used for transporting
oil produced by the Huasteca and Mex
ican Petroleum companies. These cars
have a capacity of 12,300 barrels each.
Three special engines are used sole
ly for hauling oil trains from Tam
pico, each engine carrying out sixty
to eighty cars daily.
The Mexican Asphalt Paving and
Construction company, also a Doheny
organization, is operating its large
plant at Ebano to its full capacity,
this being one of the largest plants
of the kind in the world.
The Mexican National Gas company,
of which Mr. Doheny is president, Is
extending its service in the City of
Mexico as rapidly as possible, six gangs
of men being employed continuously in
The plant, which is one of the most
complete in America, is using 200 bar
rels of oil dally, and the amount will
be greatly increased as the system is
The Mexican enterprises of which
Mr. Doheny is the head represent In
land holdings and improvements an
aggregate investment of $29,400,000. Of
this amount $5,000,000 stands for im
The properties, which were all visited
in the course of a recent trip of inspec
tion by Mr. Doheny, Included the gas
plant of the Mexican National Gas
company at the City of Mexico, and
the paving plants of the Mexican As>'
phalt Paving and Construction com
pany at the City of Mexico, Guadala
jara, Pueblo, Chihuahua and Tampico.
Other similar plants have been ar
ranged for at Monterey, Durango and
The oil producing properties that
were inspected were those of the Mexi
can Petroleum company of California
at Ebano, the Huasteca Petroleum
company, the Tamoahua Petroleum
company and the Tuxpan Petroleum
company, all situated In that region
bordering on the Gulf of Mexico,
known as Huasteca Vero Cruzana.
Referring to the public utility under
takings that he is directing in Mexico,
Mr. Doheny said:
"Our gas plant at the City of Mexico
is one of the finest and most up-to-date
establishments of its kind to be fourfil
anywhere, and the lighting and fuel
gas that we are supplying is meeting
with gratifying appreciation. We shall
eventually supply not only the City of
Mexico but many suburbs that cluster
around It. Manager Ross says that
the actual sales will ultimately reach
6,000,000 cubic feet daily. The capacity
of our present plant, however, is 1,
--650,000 cubic feet dally, so you can lee
exactly how much we shall have to
expand to meet the market tor light
ing and fuel gas. The City of Mexico
is having a steady growth and we aim
to keep abreast of It.
"Carl Leonardt, who may be trusted
to have a discriminating eye for archl
tctural effects, was greatly Impressed
by the transformation effected by the
asphalt paving In Pueblo and other
ancient Mexican cities. Pueblo and.
Guadalajara, in particular, are Interest
ing because of their attractive archi
tecture dating back to the days of
virile old Spain. Architectural beauties
which the average tourist does not j
know exist in Mexico have been made I
Accessible by the asphalted streets.
The newly-paved thoroughfares are
kept more scrupulously clean than those
of perhaps any American city, and
where before the cobble-covered, Utter
strewn thoroughfares rather discour
aged the travel of visitors, now it Is a
pleasure to traverse them."
At the Ebano oil field the Doheny
party found all conditions satisfac
tory. It was in the Huasteca dis
trict that scenes of sensational activ
ity were encountered.
"Casiano No. 7, the greatest well of
the district," said Mr. Doheny, "has
an output of 28,000 barrels dally. It
is under a pressure of 280 pounds and
at present is chut in 50 per cent Well I
No. 6, of 15,000-barrel output, is shut
in entirely under 570 pounds pressure.
All the production of the Huasteca
field Is sold as rapidly as it is de
livered. The largest pipe line delivery
a day to date has been 30,000 barrels,
but when the storage at Tampico bo
comes sufficient the pipe line will carry
32,000 barrels daily. By railroad we
are transporting 20,000 barrels a day.
"We have everything but ample
storage but we shall not be behind
in that respect very long. When I
was on the scene one 66,000-barrel
steel storage tank was being com
pleted every nino days and arrange
ments had been made to put on an
extra crew of tank builders. Steel
storage tanks, each of 56,000-barrel
capacity, will from now on be com
pleted at the rate of five a month.
Nine are already in commission. Twen
ty-four in all will be built.
"In addition, Mr. Leonardt, who is
the leading reinforced concrete con
structor on this coast, has begun j
building for the Huasteca Petroleum |
company at Tampico a reinforced con
crete reservoir that will hold 1,250,000
"At the San Oeronimo pipe line
station he will later on build another
reinforced concrete reservoir that will
have a capacity of 750,000 barrels. A ;
third reinforced concrete reservoir
will be built one mile from the Casi
ano wells of the Huasteca field. This
reservoir will hold about 600,000 bar
rels of oil.
"Before I left Mexico 100-mule
teams and scrapers had been brought :
in from El Paso by the company and :
started to work by Mr. Leonardt ex
cavating for the big reservoir at Tam
pico Twenty-two carloads of lumber
had arrived from the Chihuahua lum
ber mills and seventy-five carloads of
machinery from El Paso. In addition
to all this more lumber and all kinds
of oil well supplies are arriving week
ly from the United States at the port
of Tampico. The business of the port
of Tampico is Increasing by leaps and
bounds It will continue to Increase
and it is all petroleum business, Mex
ican Petroleum Limited business.
LOOKS TO MARKET
"But large as the construction part
of our business Is we are not neglect
ing the marketing end. In October we
marketed 353.000 barrels of Huasteca
oil and 199,000 barrels of Ebano oil.
This month the amount sold will be
between 650.000 and 600,000 barrels from
the Huasteca company alone and up
ward of 200.000 barrels from the Ebano
fields of the Mexican Petroleum corn-
Not the least important statement
made by Mr. Doheny concerned the
construction of a seventy-mile steam
railway, starting at the north end of
the Mexican Petroleum, Llmited's,
holdings and traversing their entire
length to the Tuxpam river. The ties
are already on the ground for this
road, the entire cost of which will be
close to $1,000,000. Construction cost
will bo low, owing to the fact that the
grades will be easy and the bridges
The land holdings of the company
comprise 700,000 acres, a large part of
it the best kind of agricultural land.
Unlike the company's railroad from
the Huasteca field to Tampico, this
new line will serve the public also and
will facilitate the marketing of farm
products. Incidentally it will give an
impetus to other industries than pe
troleum producing in this newest of
the world's great oil fields.
It will thus be seen that no feature
of industrial development is being neg
lected In that part of the Mexican re
public that is the scene of the Mexican
Petroleum, Limited s, activities
The company has its own telephone
line from the Ebano field to the south
terminus of the pipe line, a distance
of 102 miles. It has also secured a
concession to lay a telephone cable
under the Panuco river at Tampico;
also a concession to lay a pipe line
undi r the same river, by which it will
be able to reach the Waters-Pierce
tanks at Tampico and the loading
racks on the National railways
Mr. Doheny will return to Mexico
Thanksgiving for a further inspection
of his properties.

MINERS FLOCK INTO
GOLD ROAD COUNTRY
Recent Developments Place Re
gion in First Rank Among
Loading mining men of tha country
are going to Mohave county, Aria., as
a result of the wonderful showing the
mines of that district are making.
Mohave county Is recognized all over
the country as one of the best mining
districts In the United States and the
latest developments promise to place
the mines in the class of Goldfleld.
Kean St. Charles of Kingman, Mo
have county, says the hotels there are
overrun by gold seekers and experts,
and accommodations are In demand.
In speaking of his district Mr. St.
"William Farlsh of New York was
correct when he made the statement
that Mohave has the greatest zinc de
posits In the world, and he would have
been correct had he said Mohave lias
the greatest gold mines In the world."
Mohave county has the "Gold Koad"
mine that has an ore shoot of 1300 feet
in length with an average of sixteen
feet in width. A mill there now In
operation is crushing 300 tons of ore
dally and producing more than $100,000
In gold bullion monthly. It Is estimated
that they have $15,000,000 of ore blocked
out in the "Gold Road" mine and will
double the capacity of the mill at
once. In the vicinity of the "Gold
Road" is the noted Tom Reed mine
I that produces $15,000 a month from a
I ten-stamp mill, and a tube mill. The
ore averages $42.50 a ton in gold.
Their new addition to the mill will be
in operation within thirty days, which
will assure an output equal to that of
the "Gold Road" mine.
In the Gold Crown mine, twenty-five
miles west of Kingman, is probably
the largest and most valuable gold reef
in the world, with the probable ex
: ception of the Consolidated mines at
j Goldfleld. They have a reef of ore
! sixty feet wide and have drifted on it
SOO feet with a total tonnage of ore
in sight estimated at 1,000,000 tons,
that has an average of $14.40. At this
place a 100-ton reduction plant is be
ing erected and when completed will
: add a capacity of 400 tons more as
! fast as it can be put in, making the
: largest gold reduction works in Ari
These three mines will produce, when
j In operation, more than the remainder
of the territory in gold. These are the
three open gold mines in the county
but there are many more prospects that
i look Just as favorable. Mohave coun
: ty now ships more zinc ore than the
I remander of the territory.
Mr. St. Charles says that Mohave
county is certainly the home of min
erals and is fast being occupied by
prominent mining men of>the west.

gives heat, and with one filling of the
font burns steadily for nine hours, without smoke or smell. An
indicator always shows the amount of oil in the font. The filler
cap, put in like a cork in a bottle, is attached by a chain. This
heater has a cool handle and a damper top.
The Perfection Oil Heater has an automatic-locking
flame spreader, which prevents the wick from being turned
high enough to smoke, and is easy to remove and drop back, so
the wick can be quickly cleaned. The burner body or gallery
cannot become wedged and can be unscrewed in an instant for
rewicking. The Perfection Oil Hrater is finished in japan or
nickel, te strong, durable, well-made, built for service, and yet
light and ornamental. v.
