VIHCENNES OAS A BIG POOL OF OIL Experts from All Parts of the Country Flock There to Examine It. THE STANDARD ON HAND REPRESENTATIVES OF THE GREAT MONOPOLY SCHEMING TO GET CONTROL OF THE SUP PLY IN SOUTHERN INDIANA. Publishers' Brcss'J Vincennes, lnd., August 1C. This city is excited over the discovery of oil in its vicinity. Between Bridge port and Lawrenceville, 111., at a point ten miles from here, there has been discovered a big pool that has attracted oil men from the other oil fields of the United States. They are flocking in here from Beaumont. Tex. the fields of West Virginia, the fields of northern Indiana, California and Ohio. It is asserted here that the fields at Bridgeport, Casey and Robinson, 111., are putting out 21,000 barrels of oil a week. At some of the places bands arop arading about on the shoulders of the delighted land owners. Every one who can get away from home is flocking to the new Eldorado. Leases have sold as high as $1,000 an acre. Standard Oil is on Hand. Amid the excitement there is a fight between the independent oil men and the Standard Oil Company, and the representatives of each com pany are bidding briskly against one another, which accounts fox the high prices paid for the lease. The Stand ard has some of its shrewdest men on the grounds and the largest inde pendent dealers in the United States are trying to get the output. Vincennes capitalists believe that the oil pools run from northwest to southwest, think the lower part of Knox county is in the oil field and are leasing every acre of land possi ble between Vincennes and Prince ton, paying good prices. They are al so taking up all the land in Pike county they can get hold of. This means a great deal to southern Indi ana, for while the moneyed men are looking after the oil, they also are keeping their eyes on the coal fields and many large areas of coal have been discovered. Hundreds of Wells to be Sunk. Within ninety days or as soon as the rigs can be rmt tip. work will be started between th;s city and Prince ton, and it is expected that hundreds of wells will be in operation before six months have passed.

WILL BE ONLY TEMPORARY HONOR OF GOVERNMENT INVOL VED AND IT IS BELIEVED THAT DECREASE IN EXPORTS IS A SMALL MATTER. iPubyshors' Press " Washington, Aug. Hi. Tho really serious side of the recent exposures concerning the meat packing indus tries, both to cattle growers and to the country in general, is jhst coming to light, and as the figures are set forth by the latest report of the De partment of Commerce and Labor, they are not to bo overlooked. There has been an enormous falling off in the meat exports; one which, if con tinued or spread to fit her industries, might well menace the trade of the country. The gravity of the situa tion is evidenced by tho figures, for, while in July, 1001, the canned meat exported amounted to r.2:i2,794 pounds, with a value of $"(42,10, the shipments during the month just, end ed shows only a total of 1,0:J0."(2 pounds, with a value ,f $101,710. The real importance to the cattle raisers of an annual decrease of more than $."(.L'."0,000 is apparent. Kven the ex ports of cattle wen? affected, since July, 10 Oil saw exports of more than IO.OuO head at a value of nearly $;!, OO'i.onn, while last July showed a fall ing off of over l.,000 head, worth over $400, pOO another item of $.".000,000 if carried out on an annual basis. It is believed, however, by local experts that the decrease will be only tempo rary. The honor of the government, it has recently been announced, is more important than the conviction of a million criminals, and while it does not follow that its foreign trade is more important than the eradication of even one evil, but rather to the .contrary, since its honor is there in volved, the situation is one which calls for the strenuous co-operation of all involved.
