BATES GO, OIL.
NEW OIL KL DORADO.
Roikvillc, Bates County, Thought
to Be a Second Beaumont.
The lubricating oil wells and
the asphaltum deposits discovered
in Rockville, Bates County, Mo.,
by a Milwaukeean recently, ao. ac
count of which was given in The
Inter Ocean a day or two ago,
have attracted the attention cf
some cf the leading capitalist cl
goojjthis city, and preparations are now
(under way for a development pro-
1 icrl that inav make a second Beau-
me same as iiiai now gusutug

Lubricating oil and asphaltum
do no gush, but when they come
out of the earth in an ooze of sev
eral hundred barrels a day, at
frcm $m 10 $15 a barrel, there
will be no necessity of anything of
the kind to cause a stampede to
the new oil ElDorado. Money is
already being subscribed by enter.
prising Mihvaukeeans to pay the
expenses cf a big plant that will
be shipped to the wells in a few
! days. Samples of the product are
in great demand, and are attract
ing considerable attention. The
oil looks like axle grease or mo-
-lasses, and is about the consistent

They will probsbly charter a opec-j
ial car. Some ot them are quite en- i
thusiastir, Ijelievicg they have j
struck a bonanza. Messrs. t nch, j
West, Morgan, and Miller have
visited Rockville, and say it is
certainly a promising field, even
should there be no greater flow of
the product than that now obtain
ed at several small prospects,
which are down only 200 feet.
The fact that tio such oil is obtain
able anywhere in the world out
tide of Syria and Egypt, and that
it is valued at an average price of
$ia a barrel at the well, whereas
petroleum is worth but 20 cents,
is attracting the attention of scien
tific men, a number cf whom have
made essays of the product either
at the wells or in Milwaukee from
samples brought here by the local
capitalists. There are no indi
cationt anjwh-re in that section ol
Missouri, at least, of petroleum,
and the Milwaukee prospectors
will make no effort in the way cf
boring for it. The greatest inter
est seems to center around the
asphaltum, several local capitalists
knowing something of the great
value of the finds recently made in
California; also in the statement
of a local chemist to the effect that
the muck or ocze when put through
a certain process can be manufact
ured into articles such as combs
and buttons, while polishing prop
erties are there in great quantity,
especially those desired in tbe
manufacture of fancy iron good.
