Toyah, Texas, Sept. 13. "Whether or
not the Texas Oil company suspends
operations in the Toyah oil field, the
faith of the people of Toyah that there
is oil in abundance here will not be
shaken in the least.
In fact, tne suspension of operations
will be welcomed except possibly by
those who have land or options on land
in the oil belt, who had hoped to sell
at fabulous prices to the Texas, or some
other oil company.
It is generally conceded that the
Texas company is acting wisely in re
fusing to develop its property here un
til the (mineral rights laws of the state
are so amended as to give prospectors
for oil or other mineral products some
rights in their discoveries, if they make
discoveries. As the law now stands,
the owners of .t?ne lands control the
surface only and have no rights in the
minerals which may be found beneath.
As set forth in a recent article in
The Herald, if mineral of any kind, in
cluding, oil, is found, the land or the
right to take therefrom any mineral
products may be sold at any price the
commissioner of the land office may in
his judgment see fit to put upon it and
there is a chance that he might put
sucn'a price upon it as to make opera
tion of the mine or oil well prohibi
tive. Texas Compnny Certain of Oil.
That the Texas company has found
oil in such quantities as to make the
Toyah field commercially valuable is
very firmly believed by Toyah people.
Though the officers of the company
say but little oil has been found in
the three wells thus far put down, it
is pointed out tnat for six weeks past
Che company has shipped no oil to
Toyah to be hauled to .the wells to be
used for fuel, as was the-, custom prior
to the putting down of well No. 1,
which is now capped and on which
operations have ceased, for the time be
ing at least. This is the well which
was fenced and posted iu effort to
to prevent inspection by the public.
Storage Tanks In Field.
Storage tanks have been set up and
connected with tne well by means of
pipes, through which the oil is carried
to the tanks. This well is producing
all the fuel needed in the field for drill
ing. The Texas company is said to control
about 100 sections of land by lease or
purchase, and it is asserted that it has
its brokers constantly on the lookout
for any other land that may be picked
up at a reasonable figure. This fact
strengthens tne belief that the company
has not only faith in the field, but that
it knows that oil is there in paying
Others In Field.
The Texas company does not have
the Toyah field to itself. Though the
first to begin operations, and though it
has already spent large sums of money
variously estimated at from 100,000 to
$150,000 doing development work and
in the purchase and lease of lands, j
other oil companies are active in tne
matter of securing oil lands. The
Prairie Oil and Gas company of Okla
homa has had a man in the Toyah field
for. seme time past and this representa
tive has picket! up a number of de
sirable pieces of property for his prin
cipals. The Guffy Oil company of
Beaumont has spent about $25,000 for
oil lands within the last few weeks.
One tract of SO acres was bought from
E. G. Doty of Pecos at $77.50 per acre,
and two tracts of 40 acres each were
bought from F. E. Kistler of Toyah and
J. E. Brown of Pecos, respectively, at
$72.50 per acre. Several other larger
tracts were picked up at various prices.
DUt none so high as those just quoted,
A recent article published in an oil
journal regarding the Toyah field in
commenting upon what was being done
by the Texas Oil company said among
other things that the Texas company
was in the market for 200 miles of pipe,
"presumably for the Toyah field." Tak
ing it for granted that the statement
is true, it would seem that El Paso
might be the objective terminus of the
proposed 200 mile pipe line, as there
is no other market nor no other city
so desirable as the site of an oil refinery
within 200 miles of Toyah.
"While -the oil companies are active
in a large way, an independent concern
has set up a "rig" almost within the
corporate limits of the city and has
begun drilling for oil, believing that
the oil belt extends far beyond the
limits set by the geologists who have
"mapped out the ground for the big
Boring for A ater.
Regardless of the reckless rush for
oil there are tnose who are busy boring
for water suitable for drinking and for
culinary purposes. T. It. Byers, a
wealthy Dallas man, who has a ranch
2 1-2 miles from Toyalv found a flowing
well of pure water last Friday at a
depth of 6SG feet. This has encouraged
the city authorities to make another
attempt, and a "rig" is being put up
in the center of the intersection of the
two main streets, where drilling will
tye begun as soon as the apparatus is
in running order.
Toyah Coming to the Fair.
Toj'ah will be represented at the El
i Paso fair by an exhibit of agricultural
and mineral products, including oil, and
by a showing of range fed and bred
caitle that will outshine the excellent
exhibit made by this portion of Reeves
county at the fair last fall. Though
the Toyah Commercial club, which
helped get up the exhibit last year, has
gone out of existence, Frank E. Kistler,
Charles M. Tinnin and others among
the younger business men, assure the
management of tne fair -that Toyah will
be well represented in El Pasp this fall,
not only by means of exhibits,""but by
attendance of Toyah people as well.
