Work Abandoned on It Ami The Wnrreit Well-Oil Situation. Beaumont, Tex., May 13 Thero no longor remains any doubt but that the Kolly well Is dry and the oil Hold lies to tho eastward of tho well. Opera tions wore suspended on this well today, and though tho an uouuceniunl was not iimilo that it was dry, and probably will not be made for several days, if ever, thero will ho an attempt to ease it down as woll as possible. But facts arc facts, and those will eventually prove to bo facts. Though I cannot very well say why it is so. The machinery was removed from tho Warron woll today, and tho hole abaudonod as dry. This well is in tho extreme northwest of tho Bullock league, and is on a line with tho Kolly woll, though several thousand foot furthor north. It is usoloss to comment on the etlect this news will havo on tho situation. It will really help tho general situation becauso it confines tho Hold to a smaller area, wincli is consiurou to bo beneficial to tho ticld. Thore are millions lost though as a ro suit of hopes built on tho Bui luck league showing oil. some of tho Bullock may yet prove good, in fact, it is thought to contain a great ileal of tho oil deposits.
