IN THE OIL FIELDS.
Oil wells' have- been .I6cated--in Blue,
Rock township, Muskingum Co. by the
Cambridge Co. and drilling commences
next week. A. Y. Nicholson and II.
B. Beymer returned from the field
yesterday and regard it as one of great
promise. More loascs have been se
cured by them in hat which is suppos
ed to be the very best torrltory, in fact
they aro in the immediato vicinity of
tho old Woodbury -well known as the
"Bouncer" which at a depth of about
70 feet produced ,so much oil in tho
early sixties. This territory is not far
from where tho Culp Bros., of Zanes
ville, are now drilling and whore they
have sunk two wells producing' from 5
to 8 barrels per dajr of the finest and
heaviest grade of oil known. Close to
where this firm is now drilling a well
drilled more than thirty years ago fur
nishes tho farmers of that whole count

SistersvIUe, W. Va,, June 5. J. C.
McManus is erecting a rig on the Vil
lers tract out at Middle Island, and will
start to spudding about Saturday.
The Fisher Oil Company aro erecting
another rig on what is now known as
the Tuel farm, just south of this city.
Hosford & Bolden brought in a small
well on the Thorn farm, just back of
Friendly, this morning.
The Devonian Oil Co. has drilled in
their Kyle No. 0, in the Indian Creek
district, and have another small pro
ducer. Quite a surprise was tho coming in
dry of Capt. J. T. Jones' well on the C,
P. Russell farm, on Broad Run, yester
day afternoon. This well is surround
ed by a good many producers, and it
being a duster cannot be accounted for
by men well up in the business.
Reports from the Devonian's Wm.
Stealey No. 3, at Wick, and their Bull
man No. 3, in same district, is to tho
effect that they had been drilled in and
will make splendid producers. Late
news from tne Bullman No. 3 corrobor
ates the earlier report and estimates
the flow, at '.225 barrels. This well has
been due for several days, and is an
other big gusher for its owners, who
seem to have struck it rich at all their
many locations. The prospects are
that when this well is drilled deeper
an increase will be experienced.
The Waynesburg Oil Co. ara making
splendid headway with their wells
back of Belleville, Wood county, and
are now putting in OH iach casing.
W. M. Gillespie received, at Mounds
ville today, a complete set of materials
to erect, rig and drill well in that vicin
ity. W. M. Graham, who is putting down
the Yoho well at Proctor, is having
considerable trouble on account of
smashing the stem. Today it was
smashed for the fourth time, duo to the
bard stuff they are drilling in.
The Eastern Oil Co., who have been
fighting the owners or leases of the
Harness property before tho Courts for
some time, were given a decision today.
The Eastern Oil Co. were the winners
and will commence at once the erec
tion of several rigs and start them to
drilling as soon as rigs can be gotten

Editoii Maiwetta Leader,
Dear Sm:-1 enclose One Dollar
for Leader (Weekly) for the ensuing
year. It is about all the news I get
from old Washington County.i and I
cannot do without it. I have the finest
Barrack now in the world, and this is
saying a good deal. It was built last
year and I was taken from my old Bar
rack and put in charge of it. If I had
time I would give a little description
of it, but all I have time to say is that
there are but few people in this coun
try who have as elegant and comforta
ble a house to liye in, and who are as
free from all care and have as little to
do as we have here. I hope to see old
Washington County again some of
these days. Fraternally,
Capt. Z. J. Nixos,
Barrack No. 9.
I have severed my connection with
Mrs. M. A. Payne and am now located
over L. & K. Hannen's millinery store,

Largely a Question of Freight. ,
Tho principal reason why the highly
civilized and commercial nations have
gradually abandoned silver.and adopted
the gold standard is that value for value
silver is 30 times as heavy as gold. So
that if tho cheaper metal were used to
settle balances in trading between two
countries or between distant points of
tho same country it would cost 30 times
more to transfer it than if payment wan
made in gold. Tha foolish idea thai
biisiness men hove conspired to dis
credit tho white metal in order to in
crease tho value of gold is merely a
cheap money delusion. Merchants and
bankers are interested in having the
best possible material for use in meas
uring values and making exchanges,
and the fact that in millions of transac
tions tho handling of money the greater
weight of silver meant a larger cost of
transporting it was of itself a sufficient
reason why gold should be preferred.
Left to themselves, men always choose;
the easiest-known method of doing any
thing. Since tt is far easier to use a sub
stance having great value in small bulk
than one 30 or C9 thnen heavier, it is
only natural that, whenever it is pos-.
sible to Becure sufficient gold, that
metal should be used instead of silver.
Wood is now generally used instead of
steel for bicycle rims booause His light
er. Btoelitcs who should claim that the
wood conspirators had demonetized
steel rims'.would be laughed at Yet
their arguments would be 3ust as-sound
as thoaeof the sllveritoa.

Toopen the floodgates and permit tha
world's volume of silver to flow to our
mints to be coined at sixteen to one in
the hopo and belief that the market val
ue of silver would bo thereby advanced
to $1.20 an ounce eccms to me to bo a
dream so extravagant, as to be beyond
the possibility of realization. If free
coinage by this country alone would
not only arrest the decline of silver, but
restore its market value, why is it thai
such a result has not been attained in
tho countries where free coinage is per.
mitted? The mints of Japan, Mexico
and several of .the countries of South
America Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador
are to-day open to tho froo and unlim
ited coinago of both gold and silver, yet
in 110 single instance can it be shown
that the bullion value of silver has been
kept at a parity with its coinage value,
More than this, no nation on the globs
to-day has its mints open to the f reeaniK
unlimited coinage of both gold and sil
ver that is not confessedly on a silver
basis with gold at a premium. What
reason have we, therefore, Us a nation
to expect any different results if we
should venture on such an experiment
From reason and experience I am forced
to the conclusion thattoopenourminta
to the free and unlimited coinage of sil
ver at the ratio of sixteen to ono with
out the cooperation of the leading com
mercial nations of Europe would quick'
ly plunge the nation to a sliver basi;
and create such a disturbance In otti
monetary system as to involve it tota-'
