Laporte being on a channel to deep water. which will be deepened to eighteen feet under a Government contract In the near future. There Is sufficient water at present to accommodate the tank barges used In transporting oil. The lands controlled by the Guffey Com pany are distributed through eight counties, but Mr. Guffey considers it of first Import ance to develop those In Jefferson and Har ris counties owing to their proximity to manufacturing centers and deep wutcr, making the problem of transportation an easy matter to solve. "Will Be Bat One Prlee. Most significant among the statements given out by Mr. Guffey is one which ho made to-day to the effect that his company will have one price for all consumers 10 cents per barrel at the shipping station.

Inquiries aro being received by the Guffey company from all parts of the world as to the pries and supply of Beaumont crude oil. To-day the company received a letter from the Spanish-American Light and Power Company of Havana, Cuba, asking for a quotation on 6,000.000 gallons a year, to be delivered In 8,000 or 10,000-barrel consignments. A contract was closed by tho Guffey com pany to supply the San Antonio Brewing Company with fuel oil, and several smaller orders were received. A 30,000-gallon tank barge, said to belong to the Standard com pany's fleet, was loaded at Port Arthur for Mexico. Twenty tank cars were filled at the Guffey company's station on the Sa bine and East Texas Railroad for transpor tation to the Interior of "the State. The Southern Pacific Railroad to-day or dered 750 tank cars from a manufacturer ntErIe; Pa., and the Guffey company or dered. 130 tank cars from the;sam'e concern. Before the end of a month the Guffey company expects to ship fifty cars a day loaded with .oil, each car having a .capacity of 7,000 gallons J. S Culllnan, representa tive of the Standard OH Company, was In Beaumont to-day and visited the offices of the Guffey company.

Brown, president Alamo National Bank, San Antonio: "Texas and the whole Southwest will experience a revolution In manufactures. We cannot realize at this time the full meaning of cheap fuel to this country. It will be a wonderful thing for the whole United States." J. W. Blank, president Grayson County National Bank. Sherman: "I am confident that this Is the greatest discovery of all the world has ever seen. I don't understand on what ground the Eastern and Western pa pers can afford to Ignore the field. Every newspaper of importance in the country should .nave a-man here. or should; arrange to get accurate reports from this center. Beaumont oil is one of the wonders of the world.

Contlaned From Pace Oae. were under the Influence of liquor, com bined with stupefying drugs. At the police station the nature of the charge against him was not explained, but Stanley.lnqulred: "Has the charge anything to do with' iny rheumatism cure?" Cowmer Bas'uch and Captain' Dohohue then took the doctor to his own apartments and confronted him with the dead body of the priest. He started back, expressing great surprise, turned pale and exclaimed. tremblingly: "Before heaven, I don't know anything about this. As God Is my Judge, Captain, I don't." The prisoner pleaded for a glass of liquor, but his request was refused. Stanley was subsequently arraigned In the West Side Police Court and was remanded to the Tombs under JIO.OOO ball to await the action of the Coroner. DARK FLUID FOUND irf DEAD PRIEST'S STOMACH. Coroner's Physician O'Hanlom performed a careful autopsy upon the body at the morgue this evening. Examination of the. vital organs showed an' advanced stage ot chronic nephritis, or Brlght's disease of the kidneys, fatty degeneration of thellver and six .or' seven gall stoma. In the stomach was found one drachm of a 'dark fluid, the character of which will have to be examined by chemical analysis. "While no external nor Internal causes, of death, other than natural ones, have been discovered." said Coroner Bausch, "in. view of. the suspicious circumstances surrounding th!scase. It has been thought best to seal up the viscera and give them to Doctor Wltthaus for chemical analysis." Doctor O'Hanlon said that he had' found no alcohol in the stomach, and that the blood stains found on the floor were en tirely accounted for by post-mortem condi tions and the generation of gases In the Doay. -mere were some evidences of con-, gestlon In the -brain, although the autopsy could scarcely show any conclusive results, owing to the condition of the body. ' Doctor O'Hanlon said that Father Phil lips' had probably been dead not less than a week.' 9TANLKT TELLS POLICE REMARKABLE STORY. Stanley told to the Coroner.

' HOW FATHER PHILLIPS WON LOVE OF MINERS. REPUBLIC SPECIAL. New York, May 17. The Reverend Father Edward 8. Phillips was born in Hawley. Pa. He was born to the mines, and his early life was passed in doing the appren tice work ot a miner. When he was 10 months old bis father moved to Plttston. where he was a skilled miner, and young Edward was put to work as a slate picker as soon as he was able -to feel his way about the shafts. When Edward was ordained as pastor of 8L Gabriel's Roman Catholic Church, his influence among the miners soon became noticeable; he-could weld the' hardy miners Into his beliefs and ways of thinking; In 1300 the greatest 'strike in- history was threatened among the anthracite miners. One of the first men' to step Into. the breach to prevent the miners from rushing to their ruin by striking was the Reverend Edward 8. Phillips, already popular with the miners, recognized and respected by them as a man whose chief work In life had been for their good, recalling the fact that he bad .risen from the mines. When "political leaders and those lnter esteeVuroomentlng trouble, were urging the miners" 16 strike Father Phillips showed them the impossibility of success. Father Phillips spoke ' frequently, advocating feaceful arbitration, and later arranged for, n connection with Senator Marcus A, Hen na, a conference with Mr. J. Pierpont Mor gan in the office of the latter on March 27 of this year. This conference resulted In the amicable settlement of the threatened strike, and Father Phillips was credited with having brought it about.' " ECZEMAi 50 CURE. .HO PA.
