The advent of Americans in the
Inland has greatly stimulated the
development of the oil field. The
Spaniards used to procure illumi
nating oils from some of the oil
wells of Luzon, Pansy, mid Negro
but their drilling machinery, refin
ing devices, and modes of distribu
tion were extremely defective.
During the last twenty-live years
Filipino capitalists have been work
ing at the oil wells and, with the
aid of the Japanese, have develoned
some of the wells that pi odiice the
best grades of oil. The Chinese
also have taken a hand in the oil in
dustry of the islands.
Recently some of the American
discharged soldiers have been work
ing at the problem of furnishing
the islands with their own illumina
ting cils and expoiting some of the
refined oils. Through them the i;i-

One of the crvine needs of the
slate ot Missouri is an entire change
of her revenue system There will
lie no change until the people elect
a Republican state government.
One of the changes needeJ is in the
matter of criminnl costs. Under
the present system the ttate pays
half million or more ctunina)
costs which means that bate coun
ty helps to pay for the pronecutioa
of the criminals of Kansas City aod
St. Louis. Stop this state pay
ment ul such cost and let each
county pay its own costs. No ttate
under republican rules pay ucU a

Petroleum In the IMilllpine Is
Americans watching the develop
ment o the Philippine Islands will
be interested to know that Mr. F.
II. Oliphant, the author of a report
to the United States Geological Sur
vey on the Production of Petroleum
in 1902, predicts that in a few years
petroleum will be one of the articles
exported from the islands instead of
an article of importation exclusive-
The islands of Luzon, Panay,
Leyte, Gimeras, Guimaras, Negros,
Mindanao, and Cebu contain petro
leum. There are some rich oil
wells on the island of Luzon, and
capitalists usually prospect among
these before they go to other is
lands. On the island of Panay are
deposits of oil located from 200 to
500 tect below the surface. On
the islands of Negros, Cel u. and
Mindanao oil strata are worked to
good advantage ry native and for
eign capitalists. The position ot
these islands would certainly indi
cate the probable existence of petro
leurri, as Borneo, on the southwest,
and Formosa and Japan, on the
north, contain productive areas that
are extensively operated.
The best oil appears to be con
tained in a stratum consisting of
rock, gravel, and sand, nearly 20
feet in thickness, lying about 400
feet below the surface. Tins rock
is in tome places too hard to pierce
with the native devices, but Ameii
can drilling tools cut it readily. In
other places the .o called rock is on
ly soft sandstone. These oil land
are ordinarily unclaimed and belong
of capital has hindered them in their
work. American capitalists are now
interested in developing the richest
deposits of the country, and have
arranged for the purchase of the
necessary plants. At the present
time there are several well estab
lished and paying plants ir. the is
lands. One which is located at Is
adro, near Manila, is obliged to run
day and night and tax its machineiy
to full capacity in order to meet itsj
orders. A number of minor oil re-1
fineries distributed throughout the
islands are said to be doing a good
business and making money.
When pumped from the earth the
Pbilipine oils are usually dark green
in color. By refining, an average
of S per cent benzine is produced
from the crude petroleum and about
40 per cent illuminating oil. The
remainder is gas cil and tar. From
