A MILLION DOLLAR
Beaumont, Tox., April 10. A
caroloss workman kicked ovor a
lantern at one ol the Caldwell oil
wells on Block US, Hogg-Swaino
tract on Spindlo Top, early this
morning, and started a firo that
resulted in a loss of proporty val
ued at ono millon dollars and the
bankruptcy of twenty or more of
tho smaller companies. Thero
woro 17(5 wolls on tho throo blockB
of tho tract and only five of tho
derricks and pump houses
are left standing. Every com
pany that had property in tho
Hogg-Swaino tract is a loser.
Tho firo swept tho threo blocks,
covored with derricks and pump
houses clear of its buildings. The
derricks loft aro on tho edge and
far between. None of tho com
panies had a cent of insurance.
No sottling or storage tanks wero
burned, as thero woro none on
tho Hogg-Swaino tract.
Tho firo started near tho south
ern edgo of block 38 nnd spread
three ways. Pumping stations,
dorricks and pipo linos all fell bo
foro it. Largo engines and thick
pipes melted in tho heat).. It is
estimated that 170 of tho wells
sustainod an averago direct loss
of 83,000. This is oxclusivo of
half a million dollars more, tho
aggregato loss in production and
other indirect damages.
