INDICATIONS OF OIL IN JEFFERSON GOONTY Beaumont Prospector Has Secured Option on Land and .Will Sink a Well. ENCOURAGING SURFACE SIGNS. Shale Found in Hills Three Miles From Antonio Post Office Ad teres to Fire Petroleum Seeps From (Ground 8". L. Daniels, a Beaumont oil-well owner has secured an option on a piece of prop erty belonging to Chris W. Vogt. a farmer living three miles west of Antonio, Jeffer son County, and will begin, to bore for oil there on April 15. Mr. Daniels has contracted to pay $6,500 for the preliminary work for tho purpose of demonstrating that oil exists In paying quantities In the hills of Jefferson County. Bis contract calls for an eight-Inch hole. Ho originally Intended to sink It 2,000 feet, but has now determined to go COO feet deeper. Ma Daniels's homo is in Memphis, but he has spent most of his time In Beaumont since the discovery of oil there. He thinks that there Is oil In abundance, not only In and around Antonio, but In various other sections. Just now he Is prospecting, in Vlaeland, and expects to make a rich find there. He has recently visited various parts of the country with & geologist, and the latter told htm that oil beds certainly existed there, although he expressed doubt as to whether it was In paying quantities. Others Interested In Project. Doctor O. O. Bryan and Ed Belsbarth of Do Soto have also secured options on a part of Mr. Vogt's property, and are now mak ing arrangements to raise suwclent capital to begin digging. Vogt has been endeavoring for four years to Interest financial people In the oil possi bilities that exist In Jefferson County. His home Is In the center of a valley that Is surrounded on aU sides by forest hills that are from ISO to 200 feet high. He was led to the belief that oil existed there first by the discovery of shale, which Is a fine-grained, sedimentary rock of a thin and friable structure. He did not know what It was until one day In burning brush he noticed that some of these rocks readily Ignited and made a bright lire. On further investi gation he found that a rock, weighing about one pound, would burn for five minutes. This ehals exists In abundance In the bills on his farm. He can take a shovel and turn up a basket full In three minutes time. There are dozens of daces on tho Incline of the hills, where some of the lower strata of rocks have been cut through by a sub terranean oily substance that Is almost con stantly oozing out In a tiny stream. OH Sla-ns for Miles Aronnd. Since the time he made his1 flrft discovery Vogt has been making Investigations, not only of his own property, but of land for several miles around. Ho has Interested his neighbors, and they have also been making Investigations. Now three out of every five citizens around Antonio and Seckman Post Office, which is about four miles north, be lieve that oil exlst9 In the hills In paying quantities. Judge Henry Seckman. who formerly represented Meramec, Central and Roth Townships In the County Court, saya that a number of Investigations have re cently been mads and the reports confirm Vogt's theory. With a gusher ones started Mr. Daniels says that It wlU be' an easy matter to get the oil ready for commercial purposes. The nearest railroad station Is Sulphur Springs, which Is only nlno miles distant, and he says It will be an easy task to pipe the oil that distance. Surveys are also being made for the proposed new St. Louis, Htllsboro and Southwestern Railroad, which will run about three miles distant. i Wedding; Invitations.

When the proper time arrives, I shall take the people of my district into my confidence. In a can did way. and they will not need to get the Information from a Republican paper. "The slippery politicians of the Repub lican party In that district seem to be at their old game. By the employment of methods of this character, which are so well understood by them, they won one con gressional election In tho old district. They deceived the people once. At the succeeding election the people rightfully rebuked their reprehensible methods by setUng the seal of their disapproval on their unmanly and unfair practices during the campaign and at the polls. 'In my opinion they will Tebuke the tactics of the tricksters of the Republican party still s, are vigorously this year in the sew district than they did two years ago In the old district. They will also set tba Stamp of their disapproval on the vicious, If not criminal, gerrymander, by which the Republican Legislature has shoe-stringed the map of Illinois.
