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.
! F ™ n] < N - Utter filed his declaration
°. '"^ntion on May 31, E. A. Labos
®' e . re ,°" J une 29, Donnelly on

Judge Brantly, and on July 28,
George W. Farr, of Miles City, près
e , n ^ ass °ciate justice, also filed his de
^ration of becoming a Republican
^hief^ justice^ candidate. Since Judge
" " " f *"
over the state
.Brantly's retirement there has been
only one additional Democratic candi
date to file for the chief justiceship,
that candidate being Judge Joseph R.
Jackson of the district court, and for
mer member of the supreme court
commission, who filed on July 26.
In the race for the United States
senatorial toga there has been no
change in the personnel of the candi
dates, nearly all of whom have been
engaged in single-handed campaign

of state up to Monday night were:

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.
