The meeting of refiflen la the Statet brought oat the Information that there Is re fining eapaciiy In that country for 60,000 barrels of refined oil per day, while the for eign and home market doee not call (or one third ef that quantity; yet the effort to form refiners' association to regulate their trade frit through, aod ruinous competition con tinues. The June report of the Titusville Herald shows total production during the month of 632,486 bbls, or a dally average ot 17,749 bbls.. It ie further remarked that shipments show a decrease of about six hun dred barrels daily, wlle wall reports pre- ent considerably greater reduction. Parker's Lending, and other favorite dis tricts, show large decrease, and the ques tion is seriously asked will the oil hold oat? About million barrels is now held la tankage, but with deolining yield that quantity would soon be. reduoed. Hire lo the Dominion we have large refining capac ity and constant Increase, and we serious iy reflect upon the questions; will the sup ply of crude bold out? or Is there likely to be sale for the oil manufactured ? Certainly the quantity pumping la rapidly growing less, while the large producing interests are already pretty thoroughly gone over. It Is possible that new district may be found, but that Is problematical. Attention is al ready turning to old localities and old boles. Petrolia, Onfc, Advertiser. From Mr. C. D. Jenoisou, of Kaoe City, owner of the "Arrangement for Seed-Bagging Oil VPella through Small Casing," patent for which has been applied for, that the apparatus Is meeting with good success. It has been used In several wells already, and the production materially Increased. OH operators will do well to examine Mr. J's invention, and we feel confident after so doing they will save money by purchasing.
