finding of the committee will be adopt

Telegrams rccelied last night at Xevr Orleans confirm the Associated

It is believed the "United States will -within the next few days lake active

Valladares is noted for his hatred of foreigners. He has several hun

The United States gunboat Is in the harbor at Amapala ready to take a

President Davila is preparing to send an armed force against Valladarei,

Excitement Follows Rich
Paraffin Strike on Trojilla
FIND OIL SEVENTY
Tucumcari, X. 31., 2ifov. 3. Residents
in this vicinity and in the neighborhood
of Trojilla creek, 35 miles east of Tu
cumcari, are greatly excited over what
promises to be an oil strike of the great
est importance. A very fine grade of
parafine -oil has been struck by prospec
tors from this city, iwho have been work
ing the field for the last three months.
A five inch hole has been sunk to the
depth of 250 feet, oil being found since
the depth of 75 feet Avas reached. This
hole has now been abandoned, on the
advice of experts, and another, a 14
inch, a few feet away, begun. This well
will be sunk to the depth of 1000 feet,
or 1500 if necessary, in. order to thor
oughly test out the under strata, it be-
! ing greatly expected that a good flow
or oil will be found.
Oil Known to Exist There.
Oil has been known to exist in this
neighborhood for a number of years, it
is said, and several years ago a relative
of two of the present prospecting com
pany, Daniel Blankinship, tried for oil,
but circumstances prevented his follow
ing up the work and it proved to be a
failure. A few months ago, A. A. Blan
kinship and Lee Blankinship together
with C. L Shelton, C. C. Davidson, James
Comvell, I. B. Iveater and C. T. Adair,
got together and formed the Trojilla
company, with James Conwell as presi
dent and attorney 3X B. Keater, secretary-treasurer.
Since then their time
has been occupied acquiring possession
of the land and sinking the preliminary
noie. nearly u.uuu acres ot government
land have been filed on for the min
eral rights, practically all Qf the sur
rounding country being now' taken up
by the company and those near by, who
have been able to keep pace with the
Expert Gives Opinion.
Experts, among whom is Harry ATe
gee of Amarillo, state that the prospects
of this find promise much.
It is .said that some of the farmers
in the vicinity- are not taking kindly to
the work, as they fear that in the event
that oil is struck in paying quantities,
they will lose their claims, which they
have held for several vears.

Friday Effort To Lower
"With the presence in El Paso of the
famous Savage stable of world's cham
pions, interest in Friday's exhibitions
and race at Washington p?rk has in
creased very materially.
The great pacers, their oasx perform
ances and the Drospect of their making
horse historv on Friday are the subjects
of general conversation wherever men
congregate. The outlook is for a mon
ster crowd on -Friday.
Dan Patch. Minor Heir. Hedgewood
Boy, Lady Hiaud C and Georga Gano
are all housed in specially prepared
stalls on the fair grounds. Th;3 includes
places for the running pacemakers, two
Dan Patch colts, the carload of trunks,
sulkie3, trappings and sundries that
make up the stable's Outfitting, 'the
dozen -'chambermaids'" who never leave
their great charges, and. the mascots.
These latter are a Boston and a Silver
Yorkshire terrier, the former being the
inseparable companion of Afinor Heir
and the- latter the mascot to Dan Patch.
An exhibition stall is being built by
the fair management for Dan Patch It
aviII i completed in time for the Dan
Patch reception, to be held Friday aft
ernoon between 1 and 3. This unique
function is for the special benefit of
members of the fair sex and the chil
dren who have heard and read of the
champion harness horse. Dan is partial
to little girls, but he i always glad to
see bigaer ones and all will have this
first and last chance to get acquainted
with the fastest, bravest, gentlest and
most intelligent of horses.
The parade of the champions on the
race track is scheduled for 3 oclock. At
that time the people will have a chance
to see together on one track a quarter
of a million dollars .worth of horses,
headed bv Dan Patch, each arrayed in
Tacintr attire '
FolloAvine tiis spectacle, Dan will do
Ms stunt and then the other great horses
will go for what it is hoped will be a
world's record breaking rice.'
Minor Heir and Lad3' Maud C are ad
mitted to have the best chance of win
ning and of lowering the mark that
everyone wants to see lcnvered. But
horsemen are not overlooking George
Gano. This srreat son of Gambetta
Wilkes will be in every sense of the
word a contender.
