We had the pleasure this week of
meeting W. J. Darrah, one of the gen

Jim Poole' place. He ays that the
first they were aware of having found
gaa, was on Monday of last week
There was about three feet of water In
the well which they had poured In to
soften the ground rock around the drill
A great bubbling noise was heard in
the bottom of the well, and all suppos
ing that an artesian vein had been
struck, the tools were taken out of tbe
well with all possble haste. A few testa
however, soon found that the water
was not rising, and a peculiar smell
oeing noticed at the top of tbe well,
eonvinoed all that they had struck nat
ural gas. Hut to further demonstrate
the matter, Mr. Darrah lighted a piece
of paper, and creeping up as closely as
he dared to the well, touched it to the
gas. This made a great blaze by which
ne came near being burned.
Drilling was continued until Satur
day night last, when at the close of
work several joint, of Iron pump were
ieei, elevated into the air and one end
set In aperture of right size previously
arranged, ny means of a torch they
then lighted the gas at the upper end
of the pipe. This continued to burn
all night Saturday night, all day Sun
day night and untlll Monday morning
wnen it was smothered out so that the
workmen could go on with their drill
ing. Every night, however the pipe Is
adjusted and the "Jet" lighted for the

Nearly all the political laboring men
voted for Blaine In 1884. Between
Cleveland and Blaine In 1888 their
choice will be Blaine again. It la dear
then that an Independent Labor ticket
In tbe field may prove beneficial to the
Democratic candidate, a It 1 almost
a certainty that Cleveland and Blaine
will be the candidate ot the old par-
tie next year. If the Labor candidate
for president receive 100,000 votes in
New York it is the fair to estimate,
from the figures above given that more
than 80 per cent, of them will be taken
from Blaine. There is nothing In this
prospect to cause alarm to Democrats.
Cleveland cannot compete for the
votes of demagogue with Blaine. He
would not do It In 1884, and the condi
