iDYAH HAS WEALTH II THE WAltn
Without Oil, the City Is Des
tined to Become an Active
Center of a Great Farming
Toyah boosters cannot see the woods
for the trees, while they are straining
their eyes to see the outline of an oil
gusher out in block 59, section 16, of
the school land, there are -wells right
under their very noses -which are pro
ducing wealth giving fluid -which proni-
ises -more for the Toyah district than
all the oil to be found in the co-w ranch
country to the northwest.
Artesian -wells with a flow which is
strong and steady are to 'be fonnd in a
few places near Toyah and upon these
depends the agricultural future of that
rich country surrounding the town of
Toyah. The Texas and Pacific was the
pioneer well driller in this field, put
ting down a well 24 years ago to get
a water supply for its engines and
roundhouse located at Toyah For these
24 years ithe wells have been flowing an(
the supply has never failed, according
to old timers? "
"Water la Clear.
The water in these "wells is clear with
a strong sulphur odor which soon dis
appears after the "water hag been allow
ed to stand in the surface reservoirs
a few hours. As proof that the water is
not injurious to crops, the garden of
T. E. Gibbins, cashier in the First Na
tional bank, was shown to the El Paso
ans who made -the trip to Toyah to in
spect the oil field. Mr. Gibbins has
cleared a tract of land near Toyah,
where he has built a house and put the
greater part of the land in cultivation,

rent in the elevator shaft, quickly
spread to the floor above and along
the second floor until it was tinder
Valuable rugs hanging on the third
floor on a rack were burned on the
edges. Others in the front of the build
ing were not damaged at all.
The cause of the fire is unknown, as
everythintr about the 'location where it
is believed to have started was de
stroyed by the flames. Beyond the
pf orching and cracking of the walls
and the breaking of windows, the dam
age to the building was not great.
The Estimated Loss.
It will be impossible to estimate the
loss on the contents of the building
accurately until an invoice is taken of
the goods that were stored in the ware
house. Both the store and warehouse
were covered by what the insurance
agents call a distribution clause in the
policy, which makes the policy apply
to both. It will be necessary to take
a list of the stock now in the ware
house and deduct this from the total
value of the stock to get an estimate
of the loss. One agent estimated tne
loss on the building and contents a!
from 520,000 to S22.000. Of this amount
$2000 is sard to be ample for the budd
ing as it was not damaged except by
water and the destruction of the win
dows and -woodwork near the elevator
shaft. The building was insured for
$30,000 by the F. D. Porter estate,
which owns the block. The E. B. Welch
company was given permission by the
insurance companies to carry $100,000
insurance on the stock at the store and
warehouse. As this insurance was
scattered among the different agents in
the city the total amount actually car
ried Is not yet known, although it is
thought to be about $S0,000.
Company' Second Fire.
The fire Wednesday night was the
second one the "Welch company has had
in the past three years. Three years
ago the warehouse of the company
burned, causing a loss of $33,000 to
the building and contents.
Another coincidence of the Welch flr
was the fact that five years ago Wed
nesday the Springer furniture store
burned -with almost a total loss.
W. L. Peabody, manager for the
Welch company, said Thursday morn
ing that he believed the loss on the
stock -would be almost a total one.
"What goods were not actually dam
aged by the fire," he said, "were either
water damaged or were smoked to such
an extent that they will be worthless
for anything but a cheap sale. The
carpets and rugs on the third floor, for
instance, are filled -with smoke and "will
be almost a total loss, as the smell of
smoke will remain and make them val
ueless as far as their sale to our cus
tomers Is concerned." Mr. Peabody said
It was impossible to tell -what the loss
on the contents of the building would
be until the entire stock had been
The Origin a Mystery.
E. B. Welch was at a moving picture
show Wednesday night when the fire
started In his store. He did not heai
the first alarm and was later informed
that his store -was on fire. He arrived
after the fire was well un3er control, j
W. L. Peabody -was at home -when the j
alarm sounded and reached the store
in time to open the front doors and al
low the firemen to enter the buiiciinc- (
from the front. Both Mr. Welch and
Mr. Peabody said they had no
idea how the fire could have
started, as they both said there
was nothing in the rear of either-the
second or first floor from which the fire
could have originated. At the fire Mr.
Welch said that -while he -was carrying
considerable Insurance on his sto-;k of
goods, he had just turned back a num-
ber of policies, approximately $10,000
-worth, because of the increased rates
which recently went into effect.
Welch oa His Lonk.
"My stock In the store was worth
$65,000 at a rough estimate," said E B.
Welch Thursday. "Of this there must
have been almost a loss of four-fifths
ofthe total, or approximately $.rn.000.
I had $60,000 in insurance as near as
I can figure by going over the policies
this morning. I find upon examining
my insurance that about $R001 worth,
of policies had expired during t.ie past
five days, and had not been renewed

planting an orchard in one part of the
tract. His -well was sunk to a depth of
676 feet and, although tha flaw is not
as strong as that found in other parts
of the Toyah district, a bubbling stream
of pure -water is flowing constantly
from this well with sufficient force to
rise abpve the mouth of the casing.
This well has been sunk a year and no
decrease In the flow has yet been no
ticed. It is estimated that the flow
is from 9000 to 10.000 barrels a day and
from it the 2 acre tract is irrigated and
the condition of the onions and pota
toes is cited as a proof that the -water
is good for the garden crops.
At the T. & P. roundhouse, an old
Chinese gardener has been growing
vegetables for the Toyah market for
the past 22 years from, that well, which
is the pioneer in the field. His garden
is in the shadow of the big water tanks
on the T. & J, reservation and he has
always produced a good crop by the
use of no other water supply than the
sulphur wells. This Chinaman's gar
den is one of the shoA features of
Toyah, and before a visitor has been
in Toyah long enough to get the dust
of travel off his clothes and ont of his
throat (Toyah is a dry town), he Is
loaded into a carriage and driven down
to see the Chinaman's truck garden. As
proof that everything the Toyah boost
ers say is so, the China boy is trotted
out and placed on exhibit to clinch the
The Show Well.
The well which most impressed the
El Paso visitors to the Toyah district
was in the center of the Toyah Town
file company's tract to -the north of
Toyah. This "well is known as the O'Neil
well and is less than a year old. It
has a capacity of 20, ..00 barrels a day,
according to the men "who own the
Lcomls Bros., and the J- H. Smith ?gen
eier "T have not the least id a in the
world how the fire could have started.
I was there until 6 oclock Wednesday
evening and one of the boys went
back after we closed at 6 to turn on
the window lights. There was nothins
in the back end of either the first or
second floors of the building from
which the fire could have started and I
am at a loss to know how it originated."
Coming at the time the fire insur
ance rates and fire insurance comprise
a matter of such general public interest,
the fire was a practical lesson on insur
ance and fire losses. To clntj the il
Paso fire department as inefficient aft
er the splendid work done Wednesday
night is a manifest Injustice. Witn
high power overhead wires to interfere
with the work of the department in
placing ladders to the second and third
stories of the Welch building and the
necessity of shutting off the lights In
that district to prevent fatalities from
live wires, the fire department proved
Itself 99 percent efficient at the fire
and handled the dangerous blaze -with
the least possible loss. The only pos
sible objection that could be found to
the department's work was that there
were too many men trying to give or
ders. For a time in the alley In the
rear of the Masonic temple the com
mands of the chief could not be heard
for the bedlam of shouting by the vol
unteers on the ground.
Another leson to be learned from the
fire was the necessity for fire doors
and elevator traps to prevent the fire
from spreading from floor to floor and
from one part of the building to an
other. Starting In the elevator shaft
at tne rear of the building, the fire
went up the shaft as up a chimney and
spread to each of the three floors. It
also spread to the north rooms on the
second and third floor through the
openings in the brick wall. Had there
been fire doors at these openings and
traps to the elevator shafts on each
floor, it is probable that the fire would
have been confined to the floor where
More serious than the apparent need
r fire doors in the building was the
interference tne iireineu encountered
from the power wires in the alley to
the rear of the building. The feed
wires for the entire block and adjoin
ing blocks pass through this alley and
the work of the firemen was hindered
greatly by this inability to get ladders
against the building from the alley. As
the greater part of these wires were
charged with high voltage current, the
burning or breaking of one meant death
to anyone near it when the wire struck
the ground. It was necessary to shut
off the water at one time during the
fire to prevent the electricity from be
ing carried through the stream of water
to the firemen. Finally the lights in
the entire district were cut off and the
scene of the fire was left in darkness.
This was as great a hindrance to good
work by the firemen as the presence of
the live wires, as it was Impossible for
them to see.
Couldn't Use Ladders.
Insurance men arm property owners
declare that It will be necessary to put
all of these telephone and power wires
in conduits under ground in the busi
ness district. It would have been out
of the question to have attempted to
use the aerial tower in the alley Wed
nesday night, as It was almost im
possible to get a small hand ladder
through the network of wires. With
these wires buried under the ground,
both the danger and hindrance to the
fire fighters would be eliminated.
It is the general opinion that the fire
might easily have spread to the new
part of the Masonic temple building,
which has just been completed and to
have consumed the entire block between
-Mesa avenue and Stanton street. The
all"ey between the Welch and the
Masonic buildings was piled with lum
ber from the addition to the former and
had the fire escaped from the rear door
of the Welch building it could easily
have spread to the adjoining building.
Praise for Firemen.
The work of the fire department re
sulted in the saving of a heavy fire loss
to the city and the firemen and their
hief are being praised by everyone

tevens said Thursday morning. "It

depth as the Gibbins well on the op
posite side of to-wn, being J3S feet. It j
is shut off by means of a valve except
when exhibited to visitors, as there is
no use for the flow at the present time.
When the valve is opened, there is a
rush of gas and air and a beauftiful
stream of clear crvstadne water comes
bubbling out and rises clear of the .
casing before it bends gracefully and '
I pours out upon the parched ground, i
From the sides of the casing gas may ;
be seen bubbling up tnrough the pools
of water and globules of oil residue in '
the form of beads also come out of the
well and float off on the surface of the
water, indicating that there "is or has ,
been an oif formation in the vicinity of j
the water supply. j
A BInsted Hope
Three miles from Toyah on the road '
to the oil field, there are the remnants
of a blasted hope. A walking beam,
boiler, and engine and all of the iell I
drilling apparatus for getting a sup- '
ply of water out of the ground are to
be seen in a state of partial decay.
This is the Joe Duncan well which was
sunk to a depth of 970 feet, when a
fjow of artes3an waer -was struck.
Thinking to increase the flow, a charge
of dynamite, big enough to blow up
a battleship, was put in the well. It ,
went off before arriving at the end of i
the journey down the"well and blew ;
a shredded section of casing out of the
well, blasting alike the -v, ell and the
hopes of Joe Duncan, for water. This j
well either in one piece or in convenient
lengths is now offered fQr sale as fence
post holes by the town jokers of
Can Be Made ParailLse.
With acre after acre of the finest
land to be found in any section of the
fertile southwest, Toyah needs only a
water supply to make the country sur
rounding the prosperous T. & P. town
a paradise of green trees and grasses.
This water has been supplied by a wise
Providence in che form of the under
ground body of sulphur water, motive
power furnished by nature for lifting
it to the surface. While the Texas com
pany is busy with its standard rig
punching holes in the ground In an
effort to get a flow of oil the peoDle
who own land in the socalled Toyah
valley have a source of wealth right
at their front doors which "will surpass
even capt. Ross s f ondcit 'dream of
wealth from the oil field. '
Soil and AVetcr.
Soil plus water Is the equation which
spells wealth in this or any other
country. Toyah has the soil, thousands
of acres of it In rolling, unbroken
stretches of land which would need no
more leveling than could be done -with !
a one horse slip. As proof that the
water supply is there in Inexhaustible J
quantities, tne nowmg wells are offer-
ed in evidence. Likewise the Chinese
garaner and his garden. The human
element and human energy is all that
is now needed to make Toyah a valu
able agricultural country.
Everyone hopes that oil will be
struck In the Toyah field in paying
quantities. But, oil or no oM, Toyah
has the resources necessary to convert
it from a cow town to an agricultural
city in the center of a prosperons val
ley. All that is now needed Is a grub
stake, gumption and 60 acres of land
with a well in the center.
