The Congressional convention goes

The number of delegates apportioned

often in cases where such a distribution

IN THE OIL FIELOS.
Slstorsvlllo, W.Vn.'j MhVoh 12. It is
understood that tile Carter Oil Company
havo made a couple '6f locations, on tho
Williamson farm riorth of tljo clt and
will erect rig3 at once. ' ,V
The rig timbers, etc., arejbelng-'fnjul-ed
to the location mado by M. S. Wilson
on tho W. P. Hays farm, and'tlioy will
likoly bo ready to commouco ilrjlling
about the1 first of next weelo.j;Thisivoll
will bo located on tho West Virginia
side about opposite of tho center of
Mill Creek Island.' v
Once more the heart of ,'tho ,611 man
has been mado glad by tho advance In
tho prlco of credit balances. Tho hap
py ovent took place about nubn today,
and oil is now quoted at the. pipo lino,
offiuo at $1.35. It is to bo hoped that
this condition of affairs, will continue
and tha't tho price of oil -wlUWontlnuo
to go up, not by two cent jumps, but
(by ton and twenty cents, uThehigher
tho price goes tho more, Wplcj will bo

opened up or condemned.
The Devonian Oil Company is'makiug
preparations to put their No. 8 on the
Kyle, drilled in last week, to 'pumping,
and it is being rigged up now. It will
be tubed with three-inch tubing and is
expected to make a good big producer.
The same company's. No. B on the
Spencer farm, which was started spud
ding tho early part of the week, is
drilling at about S00 feet.
The Victor Oil Company's No. 3 on
tho Weekly farm out on Indian creek,
which was started spuddlng'tho first of
the week, is down about 800 feet.
Tho well out on Indian creok,;, which
is nearest the pay, is that of tho South
Penn Oil Company on the Jack man
farm. The indications are, however,
that it will not reach tho pay -for some
days yet, as it has a bad fishing job.
Should the tools be recovered nt once
it would only take a couple of days to
drill it in.
The Paova Oil Company's No. 4 Gray,
near Bradden Station, in the Bif? Flint
district, is gassing strong from, the first
pay and shut down to moyo back tho
boiler. It will be drilled in some time
A ten-barrel well is tho result of
Williamson & Co.'s venture on Middle
Island. Tho oil was developed in the
Cow Run sand.
Yates & Co.'s well on the Athcy farm,
on Big run, is a producer of some kind,
but,its caliber is Tn "doubt Tho gns
pressure is not strong enough to make
it flow and it has been put to pumping.
Shay & McMullin's No. 1 on tho
Weekly farm, was reported, this morn
ing to bo making about 35 barrels an
hour. Tho other big wells out there
are still doing about SO barrels an hour.
They haye struck oil at Armstrong's
Mills. Ono of tho shallow wells put
down by James Kinney reached the
greasy fluid the other day at tho depth
of OS feet and the hole quickly filled
up and overflowed. It was stopped
and arrangements are being mado to
run it into a tank. If the oil found at
this depth holds out there will be in
numerable holes put down in that vi
cinity and the prospectors will strike
it rich. Cambridge Sun. ,
Thero has not been a time for a year
when operation in our local fields has
been so dull. Few wells are starting,
the impossibility of getting material
being the chief factor in the delay.
Finnegan & Co. are starting their
No. C Henscl, and will begin drilling
in the near future. On the N. E. Cale
baugh, The Carter Oil Co. having re
cently obtained tho lease, will drill a
test Ono well was drilled on this
farm last fall but being dry tho farm
was abandoned; now the Carter people
are going to try their luck.
The Eastern Oil Co. and Finnegan
havo recently brought in a 00 barrel
well on the Moore farm in the old part
of tho field in what was considered
worthless territory in the early 'days
and tho Carter Co. may be equally for
tunate in their Calcbaugh venture.
Galey Bros. & Sparks will not drill
their location on tho Stiue farm, but
will move the rig to tho Calobaugh and
increase the production on that lease.
The same company has cleaned and
shot its No. 3 and greatly improved its
About one half mile north of Now
Castle, Treat and Crawford will drill
soon on the block taken by them last
fall, the location bsing on Affolter's
farm. If a gasser is found it will be
piped to tho Dogskin pool. There is a
good market for gas there as fuel is ex
pensive and in present conditions is
hard to obtain.
East of the above named city, D. B.
Stewart & Co. will soon drill another
well not far from their late well on the
Edward Norrls farm. The indications
in that wejl were favorablo for'a pro
ducer in the vicinity and these people
are doing their best to find it
In tho vicinity of the Graysville well
two others will bo drilled as soon as
tho block of territory can bo leased
up. Governor McCorklo and others
are at tho head of the hunters for a
