Especially Is this outlook discouraging
In the toco of the steady and continued

Bj/kea ul study of the.situation it }
Is f/uiid operations have steadily widened
out and developed new territory in
alwost every quarter uiit^J there is
ro ro oil produced than there Is a demmd
for, and the surplus Is piled up
ir stocks as an unsurmountable barrier
ar&tnst better prices. In the face of all
tiese bearish features there are sevcrul
prospective fields likely to bo opened up
ind add to the already lurge output a
considerable new production.
Lewis county, "West Virginia, Is so
.ar an unknown quantity, but the largo
number of well informed operators who
are pushing the experimental drill In
the Camden and Weston districts show
their fi\Hh in the future of the territory
and the unexpected in just as likely
to happen here as it did at Gaines, ,
Gurner or the Wallace district. (
In the prosecution of most other in- j
dustrles where the output exceeds the ,
demand and the stocks become heavy
with no indication of any c?ahge for the .
better, production is curtailed until the
demand warrants a resumption of (
work. But in the oil industry there are
no restrictions, no government in pro- (
duction, but everyone for himself, nil j
striving hardest to acquire the largest
production, and the result is an over ,
production and a low market. Why
do not the producers form a trust as Is
found In the production of every staple
nrticle or commodity, and prosecute ,
their business upon business principles?
Producers, as a rule, never hnng up the
drill until compelled by circumstances. ,
Necessity becomes the mother of inventions,
so to speak.
The Small Producer.
With the beginning of the new year
everything looked bright and prosperous
to the small producer, and he felt [
certain this year he could drill his light
territory and increase his bank account
or start one. Upon the strength of the
outlook he plunged into debt when th?:
market for crude was high and production
not equnl to the demand, but before
he could realize upon his Invest
ments, conditions were changed?completely
reversed, and he find* himself In
ft hole, from which it Is hard to extricate
himself. Some ar* inclined to take
nn optimistic view of the present situation
and think with the dawn of a new
year the big production will have dwindled
down, the stocks drawn uponnnd
that the calling will he fair again. Then*
nre others Just as pessimistic in their
way of looking at the situation, and
ar#uc that unless drilling Is suspended
and the slocks worked ofT the situation
will be no better for years. The view is
largely drawn from the large amount of
now territory recently developed and
the prospective pools In night, which
they think will hint 11 long while to
maintain a large production. To revert
to the May report, the figures show thf?
net Increase of stocks were over 800,000
barrel?. Of this amount the Ohio and
rndlana stocks are credited with 632,097
barrels, leaving the gnln In Pennsylvania
stocks to be 272,277 hnrrels, ? There
were only two months of the year 18!?9
that showed a decrease In the IVnnsylanla
stocks. Fn round numbers the runs
of Pennsylvania oil for the month of
May averaged barrels a day,
which were the heaviest recorded for
the past three years and a half. This
Is a gain over April's dally'averag" of
over 3,000 barrels n day, as the .'Hurts In
April wero 06,033 barrel# n To
make matter? woroe, while the run# Increased

April averaged D4.h07 burn-In a clay.
The report "f tht lluckeyr plpfi lln??
shows that th? average dally runs of
Trenton rock -ill wore M.U7 barrels,
which in a gain over April of 2,692 UnrruJf
a tlay, thu avorugo dally rutin! In
Vprll being 49.481 barrels. In May the
lally ttv,*iu?je ?hipm*n{?j of Trenton

he smallest re-Jrded during the present
year and oT.r 4,000 barrels a day
jnder the dally average In April. In
he aggregate the runs of Pennsylvania
ind Lima oil footed up a daily average
>f 151,363 barrels, while In the month of
\pril they aggregated 45,514 barrels a
lay. The net stocks of Pennsylvania
)il at the close of 1868 were 11,541,753
jarrels, and were Increased during 1899
to 13,163.819 barrelB. . They suffered a
eduction in January' ol 58,760 barrels
ind in February were followed by anjther
cut of 228,818 barrels, a gain of
157,240 barrels net in March; 36,777 barrels
in April, and 272,277 barrels in
Slay, leaving the present available
Pennsylvania stocks- at 13,335,535 bar*els.
Added to this' tho net Buckeye

These enormous stocks ought to be
i warning to the producer to stop the

restricted, stocks reduced and a
'air and equitable price received (or

pursued that has marked operations
ilnce the beginning; of 1900, there is but
ittie hope of the situation growing bet;er.
Some Good Wells.
The last week has not been prolific of
:he big producers that characterized
leld developments for some time in
he past. However, In different localties
some very fine wells were discovered,
but they were mainiy confined to
leflned territory.
The Gaines p.nnex Js doing some beter
than it did when last reported, and
ilnce then the drill has determined imjortarJt
and tangible results. The
south Penn Oil Company have finished
IP their No. 1, on lot 14, Bslllngs. loca.ed
to the south from the Dlossburg
fushers and found a fifty or sixty barrel
well. This was a very interesting
,'enture and kept the talent guessing
jntll the end \ras reached. Opinion
vos about evenly divided as to the outcome
and the result lias somewhat
changed the trend of matters at Galneft
is a new lead seems to have been developed
to the south. When the drill
ound the' pay the weft at first gave ev
deuce of being a gusher. But us the
Irlll was sent deeper Into the rock no
mprovement was shown and visions of
i gusher vanished. The Blossburg Oil
Company's Ave wells are still malntalnng
a dally production of three hundred
parrels, which Ih a far better record
,han was looked for In this shallow for-natlon.
The Blossburg company will,
n a short time, complete their test
venture, east from their producers,
yhlle Dr. Styner, after a siege of fishing
>ut tools, has got to drilling again in
His test well, located on* mile to the
lorth of the good producers and with u
itralght run should And the Interesting
jpot by the time the report ia in type,
rhe Mallory & Van Seoy test well, looted
In the Watsonvllle pool, is In
ind charged to the dry hole account,
fhey have not given up all hopes yet of
converting It Into a producer by the administration
of a liberal shot, which
they say will be done In a day or so.
rhe chances of success, however, seem
to be against them, unless the history
31 past rauures in mis territory snouici
be reversed.
The Cheater Hill pool In shallow sand
Morgan county, Ohio, has produced
another big well since our rpport of this
development a week ago. This venture
Is located upon the Yarnell property,
and belongs to S. D. Logan & Company.
When first drilled Into the pay It made
250 barrels, which at first was thought
to be Its best gait. The owners, however,
concluded to run another screw,
which resulted In Increasing its production
to twenty-seven barrels an
hour for a time. It Is not considered of
any particular Importance aside from
Its calibre, as Its location Is clearly
ivlthin the radius of defined lines. 8.
H. Jennings & Company have another
well on top the sand that has all th"
earmarks of mnklng a fine shallow sand
nrmliirnr If Ih ktrnfiul nn fhr* .Tnhn
Zimhro farm, and Is good for one hundred
barrels a day.
A Monongalia Guslier.
The South, Penn Oil Company In the
beginning of the weal: were successful
In developing a gusher In the northeast
extension of Campbell's run. Monongalia
county, West Virginia. This Is ths;
biggest well found In this locality for a
long time and shows thTe Is yet some
flue locations to drill. The venture on
the start-off had a production of between
thirty-five and forty barrels an
hour and at this time nas an official
output of twenty-five barrels an hour.
It Is locnVed on the Robert Hell furm
and in defined terrllory.
The Big Injun development In the
Btrlngtown district, Tyler county. West
Virginia, ulso produced another big
well on the west side. of the pool. It In
owned by Smith & Compnny and loca
tod upon the J. W. Ifealey property, on
the'start-off tho venture made twenty
barrels nn hour.
While nothing big was developed this
week In tho old Garner pool, east of
Proctor, In Wetzel county, the new producers
are holding up well, end in the
aggregate the Held Is making quite a
large production. Several additional
wells wore added to tho completed list,
ranging In production from 140 to eighty
barrels a day. The South Penn Oil
Company this week completed a test
well on Klchwood run. In tho Bam*?

The Carter Oil Company's big well
struck some time since, Is still maklnj? _
a production of 230 barrels a day. This
company has one or two more wells In
this pool doing: better than one hundred
barrels a day, and they are pushing the J},
drill for more of the same kind, at least bi
they expect to find them. h<
Late Developments. Xl
Dispatches from the various develop- tr

several large wells were struck and In ^
territory likely to produce considerable ai
new production. ly

genuine surprise and is the biggest y(
producer found in this locality for a
long time. The new discovery Is loca- er
tod upon the John Fanel farm, and its
initial output was forty barrels an rj
hour, but at this writing has 'declined th
to twenty-eight barrels an hour. It
has opened up nothing new and is only n<
important on account of its calibre. jj
A message to-night from Proctor
says the South Penn'n No. 8, Henry at
Garner, is flowing 275 barrels a day and
that It makps quite a large scope of ter- kritory

very favorably. \v
News Just received from the Wolf fp
Summit fltfd states that the South **
Penn Oil Company's No. 4, Brown, and .
No. 2, M. I. Duncnn are each doing 145 ai
barrels la day. They are both located w
in the northeast extension, the latter
being the most advanced well in the' cr
