REVIEW OF THE WEEK.
A Notable Chnngo )n the Southwest Opera
tions Several Promising Wildcats.
Pittsburgh blepti 18. A nbtlceable
change has been manifest in the south
west fields. during the past week, and
if the same feeling continues there will
bo quite an increaso in field operations
before tho end of the month. Another
advance of two cents in the credit
balance market, bringing the price up
to $1.13 has caused increased confidence
and created a deslro to once more start
the drill. Tho feeling is not quite so
strong In the local as in tho lower
southwest fields, wiero they are not
only talking of starting new work, but
have already commenced. West Vir
ginia territory will undergo another
puncturing in defined and untested
territory. The chances for discovering
new pools in that State are fairly good
for tho reason that there are large
blocks of territory that have not been
drilled over. In tho local fields tho
same conditions do not exist and for
that reason local operators are turning
their attention In the direction of the
lower southwest territory.
Tho most likely spot and the one
claiming tho most attention is in the
vicinity of the recent strlko on the
Mayfield farm, on Elk Fork, near Con
way, Tyler county. The well did not
make a creditable showing when first
drilled into the sand but when the
drill was sent deeper into the sand a
pay was encountered that changed the
complexion of matters very much, and
resulted in a flowing well with an out
put of 10 bbls. an hour. For a wildcat
pure and simple, this was a surprise
and the excitement that followed, and
still continues, has been something re
markable. Drilling was suspended as
soon as the well began to flow, and
nothing has been or will be done in
the way of drilling it deeper until the
pipe line company has connected up
and prepared to take care of the pro
duction. The gauge Saturday, a week
after the second pay had been drilled
into, showed the well was still produc
ing at the rate of 160 bbls. a day. The
most skeptical must admit that it is a
good showing, with the chances in its
favor when drilled deeper. Holders of
leases in that locality are very confi
dent that a new pool will be opened,
and the work of developing their hold
ings will begin at once. Considerable
territory had not been leased in that
locality previous to the Mayfield strike
and it has commanded big bonus.
Some of those who got in before the
excitement secured leases on easy
terms, and they have made handsome
turns by sub-leasing to others.
The old developments, as has been
previously stated, will be subjected to
an era of new activity. One company
is reported to have made 00 locations
within the past two weeks. Wetzel
county will come in for the greater
part of this new work.
Across in Monroe county, near Ben-
wood, the Price farm well is holding
up close to 200 barrels a day, and in ad
dition to the six wells now drilling
near it, many other locations have
been made, and the drill will be kept
bouncing for some time, unless the
Price well proves a freak, a thing not
at all probable, judging from its
In the local fields, work or the at
tention of operators is not concentrat
ed at any one particular point, but ex
tends from Washington county on the
south as far as Clarion county on the
north. Probably the best well recent
ly discovered is that of Leidecker &
stage on the Dutihl farm, northeast of
Duff City. It is a new hundred foot
producer, credited with an output of a
little more than 100 barrels a day. '
South and west of Zeleinople there
is a little new hundred foot territory
that is somewhat interesting and the
scene of more activity than any other
development in the old banner oil pro

A Call to Duty.
Major McKinley realizes fully the ne
cessity of education and organization in
tho present campaign. In a letter to a
Connecticut Republican Mr. McKinley
"I have no doubt whatever as to suc
cess, but iu order to make the victory
thorough and emphatic there is need of
earnest, persistent and intelligent work.
Probably never in the history of the Re
publican party has there been a greater
necessity for a campaign of education
That brief statement ought to be ac
cepted by every Republican as a call to
duty. Every Republican, every man
who regards the welfare of tho country
and its people should' get to work, ear
nestly, intelligently, for Republican suc

Council met In regular session Tues
day evening with al members present
except Brehan and Recti.
Mrs. B. B. Stone, Third street,
served notice upon Council that the
work of street paving is now being
done in front of her property on a
grude higher than that of the sidewalk
and stated that she will refuse to
pay assessments if tho work Is con
tinued and will claim rcstisution for
damages theroby incurred.
Mr. Bachman moved that whon
Council adjourned it do so to meet at
0 o'clock Wednesday morning at the
corner of Wooster and Third streets to
Inspect the premises, which motion
Jacob McDonald made application
for appointment as inspector on sewer
Engineer Mason submitted an esti
mate on tho proposed paving of Butler
street from Front to Second, showing
tho total cost to bo 81,885 02, of which
the city's portion would be $214 52.
Ridge moved that tho city agreo to pay
one-third of the amount provided the
railroads would pay the remaining
two-thirds, so that the work may be
done by Contractor Berry without de
lay. By request Bachman brought up the
matter of renting the Auditorium for
political meetings, voicing the desire
of all political parties for reduced
rates. Mr. Moore offered a resolution
fixing a price of $10 per evening for
such meetings until Nov. 4th. Wood
antagonized the resolution on the
gounds that much damage would be
done the Auditorium by the crowds
that would assemble and favored rais
tho price to $50 for such meetings.
Moore and McCloro spoke for the reso
lution, which waB adopted, Wood vot
The question of opening an alley
from St. Clair to Washington streets
was referred to the Street committee
Supt. Danley, of the Marietta Electric
Co., appeared before Council, stating
that certain parties desired the dirt
taken from the street railway trench
on Second street and that if the city
wanted it for filling the company
would be very glad to have it taken
away. A motion was made to author
ize the Commissioner to remoye the
earth to the Third street fill, which
was antagonized by Wood on the
ground that the company should re
move the dirt themselves to any place
specified by Council. Bachman stated
thatin view of the fact that the company
intends to replace the d'rt with a lime
stone roadbed he could not see that
the city had any title to the surplusage.
The motion that the Commissioner dis
pose of the earth was adopted.
Mr. Moore submitted an ordinance for
the improvement of parts of the Fifth
Sewer District, providing for sewering
Franklin street from Lancaster Btreet
to the Ohio river. Under suspension
of the rules the ordinance was passed
to tho second and third readings and
adopted by unanimous vote.
Building permits were granted to
Frank Hill, on Lancaster street; Dr. O.
M. Willis on Wayne street.
The City Solicitor was instructed to
prepare an ordinance establishing a
grade on Lord street.
Mr. Bachman moved that a sub-soil
sewer be placed on Fourth street from
Greene street to the river, but with
drew the motion after some discussion
and the matter was referred to the
Sewer committee for report
An ordinance establishing a sidewalk
grade on Sixth street from Putnam to
Cutler street was passed to the second
and third readings under suspension of
the rules and adopted.
The complaint of bad drainage at
Mrs. D. F. Sayre's, on upper Third
6treet was brought up by McClure and
went over for report
Mr. Moore offered a resolution pro
viding that lateral sewer connections
be made so as to best accommodate the
lots to be served and that a record of
the same be kept on file in the city En
gineer's office. The resolution was
adopted by unanimous yote.
The City Clerk was authorized to ad
vertise street paving bonds to the
amount of $15,000 for sale as provided
Mr. Price, for tho Bridge committee,
reported plans and specifications for
the repair of the Putnam street bridge.
The matter of the appointment of E.
Frank Gates as Sewer Inspector was
brought up by Mr. Moore, who moved
to reduce the compensation from three
to two dollars per day. Tho motion
Mr. Ridge moved that tho Engineer
be authorized to appoint the inspectors,
which was objected to by Mr. Moore,
who stated that the appointment of in
spectors is entirely within the province
of Council and it is that body's duty to
appoint them. During the discussion
the Solicitor was asked for an opinion.
That official went into the question at
length, expressing the opinion that the
ordinance fixing the duties of the En
gineer was very plain in its meaning
that the Engineer is entirely and solely
under the direction of Council and sub
ject to its orders. His official position
is simply that of any employe perform
ing his duties as directed by tho Coun
cil, which body fixes his compensation
for all serviced. The Solicitor stated
explicitly that there is no question
whatever, under tho ordinance, of
Council's absoluto right t6 mako the
appointments of all inspectors. Wood
moved that in future the names of in
spectors submitted by tho Engineer bo
considered by Council as a matter of
courtesy end be confirmed or rejected
as may bo seen fit. Dr. McClure doubt
ed the wisdom of delegating power to
make such appointments to anyone,
fie said It was no question of courtesy
out oi ousineas anu ne am not care to
put Council in tjie position of being
under obligations to mako appoint
ments of men selected by anybody.
Mr. Ridge moved an amendment to the
original motion requiring all employes
of the city to hereafter be passed upon
favornb'y by Council beforo being em
ployed. Uachman took tho motion for
amendment seriously enough to oppose
it, noting the fact that there Is no simi
larity whatever between tho offices of
Commissioner and Engineer, there be
ing no question of the lattor's right to
appoint his own assistants and em
ployes directly under his chargq. Mr.
Ridge's amendment not being seconded
he hinted that it be accepted by Woodj
the mover of the original motion, but
that gentleman couldn't see it with Mr.
Ridge's eyes and the amendment died.
The roll being called on the original
motion it was lost, Wood, Henry nnd
Bachman voting aye. Mr. Moore
moved that Amon Huff and Wra. Mcagle
be appointed additional sewer inspec
tors to be used when needed, afterward
withdrawing the motion to which his
second would not agree. Mr. Ridgo
then wanted all the applicants appoint
ed "without discrimination". The mo
tion appointing Huff and Meagle was
carried, Ridge only voting no. Mr.
Mason was asked whether three inspec
tors would be needed, but he was not
yery talkative and referred the question
to Dr. McClure, who stated that such
matters were not exactly in his line,
but when it camo to giving away tho
right of the Council to individuals he
would always be found ready to speak.
The plans and specifications for the
repairs on tho Putnam street bridge
were accepted and advertisement for

SILVER AND WHEAT.
IIow They Have Not Traveled Together
The claim is made by the free silver
ites that wheat and silver have traveled
together in price or valno.
But tho statistics show that there is
no such intimato relationship between
wheat and silver. Thoy show that with
the single exception of the last three
years the value of wheat has averaged
higher since 1873 than it did in the five
years preceding that date. The highest
price attained was in 1880, 7 years after
In the following table the value of an
ounce of silver and a bushel of wheat
in tho period 18GS-187a is taken as J00,
witn tne average value lor each of the
following periods expressed in percent
age on tnat oasis:

1888-'02 SSfi .9C0 72 103
1892-'0J 000 .785 52 81
So it appears that silver and wheat
have not kept company. One has been
falling continually, whilo the othor has
been rising and falling.
Tho farmer did not get less for his
wheat during 1888-93 because of tho
"crime of 1878," but because of tho in
creased production ; but ho got more for
his other crops, and at the same time
was paying less for the goods he bought.
, He paid in 1H90 $150 for the self-binders
which in 1880 cost 8300, and 55 for
the mowing machino which in 1880 had
cost $90, and $18 for the steel plow
which in 880 had cost $28; and so on
through tho list of clothing and of
nearly everything which tho fanner
had to buy. In nearly all of those things
prices had been greatly reduced by new
inventions , and cheaper processes of

that standard would not allay, but in

The Farm Hand's Share.
Is the farm hand to share with
tho farm owner in tho benefits
of free coinage? are wages to
be doubled along with the price
of wheat and corn and cotton and
everything elso? If not, how is the
farm hand benefited if he has to work
as long and as hard to mako his em
ployer's crop, get no more for his labor
and have to pay twice as much out of
his slender wages for everything he
buys? Will he not be, in fact, a loser
just in proportion as his employ
er is a gainer? The high prices that
are expected to put money in tho far
mer's pocket, will thoy not operate to
impoverish still further, if not to starve,
the farm laborer? Baltimore Sun.
