This is the question being dis
i:ed by oil mn and bpeculators
Tirinc here to take a look at well
No. H and cast an eve over adjacent
"rntory.
Opinions of oil men seem to irdi
ate that several causes may have
mbined to create tne g-reat differ
ice in so short distances in loca
ls First, the mouth of well No.
,r' of the Crant Oil corporation is
era feet lower than any- of the
i-ro'irdmg wells which have been

dicated by the shallow depth and
v the increasing: depths at which
1 has been struck going away from
f Jocalon of No. 10.
According to oil men, pressure at
U.-t well was greater because of
insure from the mother pool lying
at greater depth. The flow at well
No. 10 is now slight and its capacity
"11 pump yet undetermined because
"f lack of tank facilities to take care
of the oil.
The log of No. 10 follows: At

HUECO BASIN DRILLER
EXPECTS OIL FIND SOON
H. O. Moss, drilling contractor of
ie Hueco Basin Oil well, who la in
M Paso, declares that he expects to
find oil at less than HN feet.
There is an impression that we
iiund oil and are concealing the

are now down S471 feet and expect

corrrmssions of more than IS cents

cent of commissions exceeding 30
ctnts and less than 56 cents and SO

Subsequently sharp advance took place,
owing more or ifa to reprota that for
the first time this season Minneapolis
was bey toe hard winter wheat in Omaha.
Moreover, some new export business was
notVd. The close was unsettled. 2 to
