Tbe probabilities are that Mr. Bhannon, when be penned tha above dispatch, was not aware thai tba Central Petroleum Com' pany bad shut down all tbelr Well. Tbe dispatch, bowerer, Is so instgntfloant as to be hardly worthy of a notice, at tbe aame time it baa tendency to place that compav ny in a wrong light belore tbe pnbllo. A aligbt explanation Is needed to place tbem right. When tba movement wu first instl luted, Bupt, Bay wu requested to join.

Mr. Bishop telegraphed to Mr. Rev to not bla (Ray's) pleasure lo tbe matter, lo other words to do thai which would oonduoa to 'the best. Interests ot tbe company and the region. .Mr. B. met the aame parties In Oil City, yesterday, and staled he would abut tbe welia down, but would enter into no pledge whatever as to the length of time they would remain -shut down. Accordingly tbo walls of tbe Com pany were shut down at noon yesterday and to day every walkiug-beam en tbe farm la . 'Ill Now, we know for a fact that a largH number of wells not many mile from here, which weia heralded lar and wide as be ing shut down, and were shut down maybe tor an hour or two,, but were started up again aud are pumping to-day, and we wnuder why "Mr. Shannon, Chairmen," don'l perpetrate some of bis "How are you telegrams" at their rxpenee.

Nothing definite was done, owln to me waut of a permanent organ inlUn Ev.ry one seems to agree on this one point, that a sure aud permanent orgauiEatlou of tbe worklog men whereby tbey can protect tbeir own Interests, should be formed. 'fbrre seemo to be Ibis trouble, so for, the men can not agree on nny scale of wa- " It is strange that no organization nas yei been perfected to protect tbe working men of the oil regions, while on tbe other hand the producers, refiners and exporters all have organizations to protect tbeir interests. It seems to us, and we have been tbnugh the mill both in the Pennsylvania and Can ada oil regions, that a scale of prices lor tbe drillers and tool dressers corresponding with tbe price of oil, would be nothing but lair. That Is, when oil sells at $5 00 a bairel, pay $5 00 a day; at $4.00 a barrel, pay $4 00 a day; and under $4 00 a barrel, say $S 60 for drillers and $2.60 tor pumpers. Such a acale wonld, we think, be notbing but lair, and if tbe good aense of our work ins men Is allowed to prevail, they will no doubt succeed lo arranging matters to the entire satisfaction of both tbe employers and tbe employees.

Lembinga havs a well at Bonnla Brook, five miles south-east of Butler, down over six hundred feet. The Thorncreek well, south of Butler Is being drilled deeper. It was tubed and pumped at the present depth, something over fourteen hundred feet, but no oil was obtained. Tbe Jefferson well, on tie H. N.

Right dot kot SurFicntKT The pre jeotot shutting dowo the well we bcllav was the ooly mean wltblu tb reaob ol oil producer at tba present lime; but under tb existing stale of affair tbi will only give a temporary relief aad if something mora may demand a similar aotion. It seem lo us that if some of the heavy opera. tori; some of tbe annoyed men would, dur ing tbe preseot suspension, direct tbeir at ten lion to the refining business, the move meat might prov ' profitable to there and advantageous to oil producer generally. Why I It that capitalists In and about Par ker's Landing fail to .dlreot tbeir attention in this direction. It Mem to us that refine erles might be erected here, tbul affording profitable employment to many, aod ena bllng us to send our oil abroad io a crude and io a refloed state. Wbeo crude oil wu selling at $2,60 per barrel I her wu no decrease in the price of refloed; beoce it wot Id sum there might be a monopoly la tbi braoob of business, worthy of tbe at tention of producers. Why not tbe people of Butler borough wake up and erect one or more refineries in that vicinity t A lall- road bu been made in tbe lawn and a pipe line from tbe oil region la being laid to that place. In order to be permanently relieved from our present difficulties additional tall roads win bav to be bum, aod in sooner oil men direct their attention tb belter it will be for tbem.
