Bill To Encourage and Promote the Mining of Coal and
Phosphate, Oil, Gas, Potassium and Sodium on the Public Domain."
The "Relief" Provisions of this bill, in so far as they affect the
oil situation, would block any chance for real competition and
confirm in the Standard Oil Company and its subsidiaries from
ten to twenty thousand acres of producing lands, and in the Stan
dard and other persons, whose rights are questionable, unlimited .
unproven acreage. It prevents any one but those granted "relief"
from acquiring directly or indirectly, not only in the State of
Wyoming, but in the entire United States, and from
the Canadian Line to the Mexican Border, any larger area of the
many millions of acres of public lands than 2,560 acres. No chance
is given for an oil operator to grow to sufficient size to be con
sidered a competitor. In short, monopoly is intrenched, forti
fied and insured against competition and when you sweep
away the chance of competition, the public's purse is at the mercy
of monopoly. It is unnecessary to point out here the result from the
consumer's standpoint the public's standpoint and it is because of the public's knowledge as to the- effect of such a bill, if
enacted into law, that we depend upon the bill being defeated by an overwhelming vote unless suitable amendments are
made that will eliminate "relief" and permit competition.
