here from a shipping standpoint are great.

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.
This means that whether a contract Is for
10, 1,000' or 10.000 barrels the cost will bo the
same. The Standard Oil Company's Influ
ence In the Guffey company Is said 'to ap
pear In this one-price ruling. 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.
Reports concerning the Texas and Pacific
well continued to pour Into town to-day. It
was said that gas -was encountered In
quantities sufficient to make' its presence
known at' the surface. Secretary Matlock
ofth'e Texas -and Pacific Company wtr.t
out to the field to-day, and upon his return
said that he yae greatly encouraged at
the indications which had developed. Ha
predicts that the oil pool will be found
before the well is down nnother ZOO feet.
The depth is now about 900. feet.

Talk of the Future Texas.
Members of the Texas. State Bankers' As
sociation, after having Inspected the Beau
mont oil fields, expressed themselves as
follows:
Henry P. HlUard, new president Texas
State Bankers' Association and cashier
Austin National Bank,, said: "Beaumont oil
solves the greatest problem Texas has had
to contend with tho question of cheap fuel.
I believe the collapse of the speculative
feature of this discovery was timely. There
Is every evidence that operations hereafter
will be on a business basts and will be con
ducted 'by men who have largo Interests
to Invest This will develop the field rapid
ly, and, with Its development, a new era
In Texas opens."
F. F. Downs, retiring president Texas
State Bankers'AFSodatlon and president of
tho First National Bank of Temple: "Beau
mont oil will give new Industries to Texas;
Industries which were not practicable be
fore because of the cost of fuel. This Is
no longer In the way, and we arc now en
tering upon a period of marvelous develop
ment." W. H. Fuqua. president First National
Bank of Amarillo: "It is Immense; the big
gest thing wo will see in our day. It means
development as fast as man and machinery
can accomplish it."
J. J. Gannon, cashier Commercial Nation
al Bank, Houston: "It speaks for Itself.
No one can overestimate the tremendous In
fluence upon our future which the dlsoovery
of this oil will wield."
J. N. 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. The development of the field' Is only
In its Infancy. Investments Judiciously
made will bring in hundred-fold returns."

Mattoon, III.. May 17. The people of this

gas and oil belt. Indiana experts and cap

the most promising indications have been
found on the Cunningham and Wilson
farms, four miles south of this city.
Plans are under wan for the formation of
stock companies with ample capital to de
velop the wells and pipe the gas to this
city, Charleston and surrounding towns.
The Mattoon and Charleston city councils
will bo asked to grant franchises for that
purpose within, the next thirty days

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?"

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

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.'
