i'lie Gi-aiiil Trunk Pipe 1-inu
Tao Tilusville Courier bos the tollowing
in regard to the proposed new pipe lino
lrom the Butler oil Ueid to Titusviiie. It
is understood that a relay station will bo
established at this point. The liue will un
doubtedly prove n success:
This new Company, which, for the past
week or two, has bten in the process ol or
gunizitiou, has at length become a settled
fact, and we ate now prepared to give to
the public a comprehensive deccriptiuu of
its character and purpose.
t'l'bo capital stuck of the Company con
sidts of 2,500 shares of $100 each, amount
log to $250,U00. The whole amount bus
been subscribed, except $13,000, and is
held principally by the Tilusville refiueis
The headquarters of the company will be iu

going forward between Tilusville and the
lower oil disiriat. Forty-Ova miles cf the
three iucb pipe Tor Ibe main line bave al
ready been contracted for, the delivery of
which will commence lu a lew days. Start
I iij; from Tilusville the Trunk Line will run
diiectly to Oil City, thence to Fuxburg utid
thence to the great nil fields ol Butler cotiu
ty, and ol course lapping all the producing
districts through which it paeses and
branches of pipe will be laid directly to
the wells everywhere for loading the main
Relay stations will be established eight
miles apart. Al each ol theso a pump oj
ample capacity aud power will be used iu
sending forward the ail. Sullicient tanks
will also be built. The policy ol the com
pany it will be seen ia to connect with all
tbe best producing districts ol the region.
W ben it is considered tbat tbeoil will be
brought from the wells through a single
continuous line and delivered to tbe re 11 tie
