Jan-14-15-IS-iT-feh-10-H--2 OIL NOTES. The Investor of the 28th instant says: The past week has been an active one in the local oil- field. Drilling opera tions have besn going on vigorously. The success that has attended most of the recent ventures has encouraged many to try their fortune in the field. It is reported' that the most westerly well In the field, near the corner of Ocean View and Ronnie Brae, has at tained a depth of one thousand feet without encountering oil. This is in ac cordance with the view that has been previously expressed In the Investor, namely, that boring west of I'nlon ave nue would have been attended with much risk, had It been permitted by the city council. A trip through the oil field just now isan interesting one. Most of the wells are being actively operated. Some of the small Mreets are entirely devoted to the oil business, derricks lin ing the streets on, either side and tha roadway being composed mainly of mud and crude petroleum. The closeness with which wells are sunk in the local fi»ld has led to a good many complica tions among owners of adjacent lots, who are each, of course, anxious to get out whatever oil there may be under ground before it Is exhausted. Asa rule, friendly arrangements are made In regard to the location of wells along the lines of the lot. but sometimes an attempt is made by a greedy borer or corporation to freeze out a neighbor. A vast amount of money—at least $250,000—has been wasted in sinking su perfluous wells in the local oil field, owing to the fact that the land is cut up Into ro many small tote, and that it has not generally been found practica ble to get owners of adjoining lots to combine, many of the owners being ab sentees. RUMOR RUN RIOT. There is a retail merchant In a larse way of business who Is to be found not a hundred miles from Spring street, and whose matgnlflcetvt store Is bounded by an alley In the nor, through which all goods are received, and. shipped by a clerk whose side duty it is to superin tend this department. The clerk is known as tbe receiving clerk, and is often called, for .short, "the receiver." A casual customer In tbe store happen ing to hear an order given to the effect that certain goods would) be taken charge of by the receiver, Immediately jumped to the conclusion that insol vency proceedings were afoot, and be ing gifted with a vivid imagination and a ready tongue, he started the rumor that the merchant In question had suc cumbed' to the pressure of the times. In a brief while the business commu nity was- in possession of every detail of the merchant's misfortune, which grew enormously in the telling. Banks, mi reantHe agencies and merchants gen erally were plied with anxious ques tions, and finally It was demonstrated! that the rumor was made out of whole cloth. It is safe to guess that he will have no use for a "receiver" hereafter. The criminal who started the injurious rumor is still at large, and probably does not yet n alize how nearly his asinine act came to causing serious and undeserved irouble.—lnvestor. RAILROAD NOTES.
