applicants for rights and concession
under tho oil leasing act passed by

search for oil generally in tho West

Classification Bureau believes that the
law will result in rapid oil develop
ment in California, Wyoming, Mon
tana and Utah, particularly in the
two states' first named where tho land
now held by the government with
drawn from entry runs into the mil
lions of acres.
The chief danger, geological ex
ports believe, will be a too rapid de
velopment of the petroleum of the
nation, with th consequent lowering
of tho prices to the consumer and an
exhaustion of tho oil reserve before
the nation has dveloped an adequate
Tho geological survey estimates at
tho present time that the total petrol
eum resources of tho United States
available for exploitation total 182,
1 000,000 bbls. The nation ia now con
suming 345,500,000 yearly and the
curvo of consumption is mounting
rapidly. At this rate all tho petrol
leum now remaining in the United
i States would bo absorbed in 1C or 17
i For this reason the officials of the
I land office intend to administer the
I oil land leasing bill with due conserv
atism, although prospectors aro to be
I encouraged in every way to exploit
the new lands now open. When Con
l gross reconvenes a report will be
made upon tho results of tho first
eight months of the operation of the
