That the holdings of this .company ,ave located in what is knowji to be ,the petroleum fields of Texas, is con ceded by all. Mr. W. F. Oumming, assistant state geologist for Texas, .aays on this point: "I have personally examined the holdings o.wned by the Anglo-American iOil company in the Beaumont dis trict, Texat. Some of the lands are in close vicinity to the famous Lucas Gusher and in my judgment the lands controlled by the Anglo-American Oil wjnpany are the equal of any lands in the Beaunxmt district and in my opinion are oil bearing lands. From my personal knowledge of the oil com pany's present workings I confidently predict .oil hearting wells and unpre cedented success from located work." And in regard to the holdings of the ftwnpany and .titles thereto Wil liam H. Gray, county attorney of Jef ferson county, writes the following: "Anglo-American 053 Company, Beau mont, Texas: 'Gentiemeja: In compliance with a request made by Jason C.
