CONTRACT LET TO FINISH
WELL ON POPLAR DONE Pioneer Oil & Gas Company Will Complete Well on Booth Place South of Poplar in Richland County. — Drillers to Go 3500 Feet. — Phillips Optimistic Over Prospects and Predicts that New Field Will Be One of the Big gest in the State. While it was generally known about town that a drilling contractor had been here to look over the ground for the Pioneer Oil & Gas company, and submit a proposition to complete its well on the Booth farm south of the river, nothing definite was given out as to results. On being interviewed this week by our representative, the officers of the company, realizing that the news would be of considerable in terest locally, stated that a contract had been signed with the Diamond Drill Contracting company, of Spok ane, Washington, to continue the pres ent well to a depth of 3,500 feet, unless previously stopped by the company on account of oil production or otherwise. J. W. Phillips, president of the com pany, further stated that this contract would afford a thorough test of the structure at or near its center, and would be of great value in any other drilling, since the company would have a perfect log of all the strata pene trated, thru using this core drill meth od. He also stated that this drilling company enjoyed a splendid reputa tion for reliability, and has contracted to reach 2500 feet or no pay at all, with heavy forfeits for failure to reach 3,000 feet and 3,500 feet respectively, if it is found necessary to go down to those depths. Drilling is to start just as soon as the machine and equipment can reach here from Spokane, and in the mean time water and co'aUre be'ingTrränged ' for and men are busy at the plant get- ! ting everything in readiness for oper at j ons Two carloads of casing and equip- ! ment will have to be transported to the well site, and it will be necessary to do I considerable work on the roads on both sides of the river to make them ' passable for heavy hauling, he said. I A number of townsmen have visited the scene of the new oil discoveries in j the Kevin-Sunset district, and were as- I tounded at the activity in all lines of business inaugurated immediately af- i ter the announpement of these strikes ! and the influx of so many of the big oil operators. The Independent real- J jzes something of what it will mean to Poplar and the surrounding country should oil be discovered here. We know, too, that our local men are not, under present conditions, able to fi nance the drilling of such a test well alone, and therefore we believe much credit should be given to the Pioneer Oil & Gas company for succeeding in interesting outside capital in develop ing this structure for oil. It lay here for untold thousands of years until the geologist of that company first i noted its possibilities, and it behooves all who are interested in furthering its development (and who are not?) to do everything in their power to help push this test well to completion now that a guaranteed contract affords the op portunity. ! Discard your smoked glasses, let in ' the clear light of day, and try to vis ion the future expansion of industry in this community should htis well once prove the field and thus bear out the contention of the dozen or more eminent geologists who have confirmed the report made by J. W. Phillips, and as we understand, have pronounced the Poplar dome one of the most favorable structures for oil production in the whole United States.—Poplar Indepen dent.

CHIEF JUSTICE JOB IS CENTER OF INTEREST Helena, Aug. 3.—Decision of Chief Justice Theodore Brantly of Deer Lodge to retire from the race for re election seems to have shifted interest in the present political campaign from the race between candidates for the United States senate to that between those who seem to have set first place on the high benciras their goal. Up to the time Chief Justice Brant ly had announced his retirement only two Republicans and two Democrats had filed for the place of chief justice, The Republicans were Frank N. Ut ter, lawyer at Havre, who formerly was district judge for Valley, Richland and Sheridan counties, and E. A. La Bossiere, lawyer in Great Falls. The Democrats were Joseph P. Donnelly, also a lawyer in Havre, and John W. Stanton, also a lawyer in Great Falls. Chief Justice Brantly filed his de claration of becoming a candidate for re-election on February 15. On July ' 5 he fik '<! his completed petition which ! «»tained signers, but on July 24, on advlce °* h,s Physicians he gave the secretary of state notice of withdrawal. !

ALMS SEEKERS A PROBLEM Just what to do, or how to handle the great number of alms solicitors that canvass the average town during the year is an ever vexing problem to those who do not wish to turn a deaf ear to misfortunates in need, and many times he digs up when he knows he is being imposed upon. But he does so in fear that he may be mistaken in sizing up the dishonesty of the beggar and would rather part with a few dimes than make the mistake of de priving one in real need of assistance. They all have a plausible story. Some are deaf and dumb, others have had the flu and trying to collect mon ey enough to get treatment for their present poor physical condition. Any way, it is hard to turn them away without some sort of an offering, while at the same time one is well aware that every state has institutions where unfortunates may receive the best of care, and the taxpayers are assessed to foot the expense. It seems that some good plan might be worked out in every town where by the regular grafter could be de tected and shown up in a fashion to suit his case, while those that are needy of temporary assistance could be readily and efficiently cared for. It is regrettable that any needy person is forced to beg. Also it is a disgrace that many unprincipled grafters make a regular business of panhandling the public.
