when an attempt was mado to draw It
freed itself some how and mado thrco
vigorous flows of oil oyer the top of
the derrick. This well has been pro

are being drilled on Dutchman's run,
in the southern part of the county, but
nothing encouraging has been found

twenty days In which to finish the well

Clint Moore & Co. shipped to them
selves at St. Mary's today a complete

to commence spudding the' last of this
Early last October, Brown, Steele
smith & Co. got a 000-pound gas pres
sure in their well on the Hlauir farm,
out near Middle Island, and have had
it shut in ever since. Yesterday they
determined to have it drilled deeper
and see whether or not they can make
a producer out of it. They report a
showing of oil and hope for a strike.
This well caved in below the 8K cas
ing, no OK casing being in, is the rea
son they decided to abandon it when
they did. This well is about 1,200 feet
from the Kanawha Oil Company's 20
barrel well on the Williamson farm,
and about the same distance from the
Clint Moore well on the Ilugus farm,
which is maintaining a 20 barrel flow

The largest strike ever mado in the
Deist pool on the Ohio side of the river
took place early this morning, when
the Henry Oil Company drilled in a
500 barrel well on the Steele farm.
The lo-ation of this well is over 700
feet farther north of any other in the
pool. This well is their No. 4, and
was not looked upon with favor, ow
ing to its remoteness from other devel
opment, and its coming in such a big
gusher causes considerable excitement
and will open up practically a new
territory, and has already stimulated
the work going on there.
A. Greenwall, who has been with
the Oil Well Supply Company for a
long time in this city, left today for
Waverly, where he will take charge of
the branch store the company has

pairing and manufacturing tools for
the oil trade.
Uosford & Holden hauled to their
lease back of Friendly today an en

is up will commence spudding.
Late news from Wick is to the effect
that South Penn Oil Company got a

the neighborhood of the one that came

At the last monthly meeting of the
Woman's Home, it was decided to col
lect the annual dues of one dollar, from
all old members, and from as many
new ones as possible, during the spring
and early summer months. Heretofore
these dues haye been collected in the
fall. The Home is in great need of
money at the present time, and there
seems to be no other source from which
to obtain it.
Several life members were promised
us, some time ago, but they have not
yet been added to the roll. The col
lectors will call during the next thirty
days, and it is hoped every one will re

A. D. Follett, on behalf of the Park
Commissioners, reported upon tho mat
ter of tho proposed drinking fountain
for Muskingum Park, submitting a
catalogue with illustrations of a neat
and serviceable fountain, two of which
could be purchased for $50 80. The es
timate of the entire work of purchas
ing and putting in tho fountains, as
submitted by the Marietta Plumbing
Co., amounted to $103.75, including a
galvanized iron ico box for cooling.
Mr. Ridge thought tho work could
be cheapened by putting in a cypress
tank instead of tho galvanized iron
Mr. Follett also reported that the
Park had been cleaned up and the
paths put in good shape. The plans
for the band stand havo been drawn,
but the contract not j'et let, as the
Commissioners believed the work
could be done cheaper by tho city tak
ing charge of the work itself and not
letting the contract for tho entire job.
At the request of residents of tho
West Side, Mr. Follett urged that the
footway to the railroad bridge bo so
constructed as not to require pedestri
ans to cross the tracks except whero
absolutely necessary. The reqnest was
in the nature of an objection lo the
action of the committee of Council in
locating the footwalk on tho approach
to the bridge on the South Side, where
as the footwalk on the main bridge is
on tho North Side. The matter was
discussed at some length and upon mo
tion the sidewalk was ordered located
on the south side of the tracks, as re
commended by the Committee.
Upon motion of Mr. Bachman the
City Commissioner was ordered to con
struct the walk in question, six feet
wide, with railing on both sides.
Tho Front street paving still needing
to be relaid on account of being torn
up by Z. T. Darrow, sewer contract was
brought up by Mr. Bachman. City
Solicitor Richards stated that Mr. Dar
row had never given the bond of $2000
required of him to insure the streets
being repaired according to contract
and recommended that the work be
done and paid for out of money still
owed by the city to Darrow before the
same becomes due.
Mr. Ridge agitated the Greene street
sidewalk matter and moved that at the
expiration of the time allowed by law
after the service of notices, the proper
ty owners be required to construct the
samo immediate'. !t was shown that
legal notice had already been given
and no other was necessary. A resolu
tion was offered and adopted instruct
ing tho City Commissioner to construct
a six foot brick sidewalk at once at the
expense of the owners of abutting prop
erty on the North side of Greene from
Fourth to Seventh street.
A resolution providing for notifying
lot owners on Fourth street who havo
not already put in sewer and water
connections to do so before the street
is paved, was read by tho Clerk and
Mr. Wood moyed the payment of wit
ness fees due Dayid P. Pugh be paid to
his wife, Mr. Pugh being now an in
mate of the Athens Asylum. Mr. Gar
rison moyed an amendment that in the
case of all persons dead or incapaci
tated from demanding similar fees duo
them, the amounts shall be paid upon
demand of any party legally authorized
to receive the same. Mr. Wood ac
cepted the amendment and the motion
The Commissioner was authorized to
purchase sewer pipe as needed accord
idg to his discretion, Incidentally the
Commissioner reported that he had
quotations of 90 per cent off of list
price, whereas he could get but 00 per
cent off by buying the pipe in the city.
The matter of the sidewalk on Pike
street was referred to the Street com
mittee, with power to act.
The public cistern on Sixth street,
near Otto's, was ordered abandoned
and filled, upon motion of Mr. Ridge.
Harry Hoyt appeared before Council
asking that tho old gallery in the City
Hall be finished, if possible, in time for
the Commencement Ball, June 18th.
The matter was referred for report
next Tuesday evening.
The Solicitor reported on the amend'
ed plat of Knox's Subdivision, referred
to him at last meeting, giving as his
opinion that the amended plat could
not be accepted, but that a new and
independent ono must bo made.
A resolution accepting and ordering
recorded tho plat known as Phillips'
Addition was adopted. The plat of
mil's addition was also favorably re
ported by tho Street commiteee and a
resolution accepting it offered, but tho
matter was referred back for further
Dr. Hardy, as a committee to Investi
gate the proposed widening of Mul
berry alley, reported that the people
residing on the alley wanted It made
of uniform width and that the owners
of property necessary to be purchased
are willing to sell at a price to be fixed
by Council. Upon motion of Mr. Bach
man tho streot committee was instruct
ed to fix a valuation upon tho property
and report at next meeting.
J. L. Fohr, tho promoter of tho
forthcoming industrial edition of the
Register, appeared before Council and
aske-1 that Council purchase 1000 copies
of tho edition at ten cents a copy. He
cited tho fact that other cities where
ho had gotten out similar editions, had
assisted by purchasing copies of the
paper and circulating them for pur
poses of advertising. Mr. Rldgo said
he looked upon uny scheme of adver
tising the city as a good business prop
osition. Ho thought it just as much
the business of Council to advertise tho
city and enhnnco its business intcrst as
to lay street pavements and put in
sewers. Mr. Brcnan moved, and was
seconded by Mr. Ridge, to purchase
1000 copieb ut the price named, amount
ing to 5100. Dr. McClure, chairman of
the Finance committee, arose to op
pose tho motion, for tho reason, he
stated, that tho city's expenditures are
now running $500 a week In excess of
its funds and he did not know whero
the money was to come from. He
moyed a substitute to defer tho matter
one weok. The substitute amendment
The estimate of S1270 50 on tho pay-
. ing contract of Contractor Wilson was

the Greene street paving.
The Clerk reported the proceeds of
the sale of Second Sewer District Sew-
' er Bonds to be $10,404.42.
Upon motion of Bachman the matter
