STRIKE GAS IN WHITEWATER
WELL NORTH OF SACO
The wel! being drilled north of Nel
son reservoir by the Phillips County
Gas and Oil Co., encountered gas at '
five hundred feet in quantities that j
prevented further drilling until the gas
could be cased off. When the flow
was struck the mud and water was
sent a distance of from fifty to sixty !
feet in the air. The drillers had noth
ing with which to check the flow of gas
and until some supplies arrived in the
city from Minneapolis they could not
continue their work. Each day there
have been many cars from Malta, Sa

His energy sind record for mil service
to the people of Montana. His sound i
Republicanism and his good common

by special interests, lie is one of the !
few actual farmers in Congress. Iiis
wholehearted support of President '
Harding. His tireless work for farm-1
ers. His close attention to duty and !
prompt response to every request made
of him. Republican leaders every-1
where endorse liini and his record. '
Leaders of farm movements like Na- j
tional President Howard of the Federal I
Farm Bureau, and Senator Capper of
the Farm Bloc endorse his record and
Thoughtful men and women all over
the state regard him with favor, and
the logical man to vote for. He stands
for the right, and is a hard worker. If

made an excellent showing. The gas
at five hundred feet was encountered
at a depth given the company by their
geologist and it is estimated that a
flow of oil will be found between four
teen hundred and fifteen hundred feet.
The company have been retarded some
what in their development on account
of their inability to get leases, but
with the drill on the ground and at
work, parties holding land in the vi
cinity of the well could not do better
than to lease to a home concern which
is actually at work and helping devel

the company will be given enough
leases in the neighborhood to warrant
a continuance of the work and develop
the field. If this company brings in
oil they have excellent prospects.
