Expert States That All Indications Are
Good- and That the Field May
Be the Greatest
The next meeting: of the officers and
stockholders .of the Carlsbad Consoli
dated Oil company, to be held Mon
day, will be one of considerable im
portance to Los Angeles people who
I are largely 'interested in the early de
velopment of the company holdings,
-. abopt 8000 acres located in. the New
Mexico oil belt.
Secretary Lonergan and J. M. Keller
man, the general manager for' the com
pany, arrived home yesterday from the
oil field after an absence of ten days.
Both gentlemen made a 'personal ln-
I epection of the land. It was the sec
ond trip for Mr. Lonergan and the first
tor M, Ke.lerman.
Mr. Kellerman Enthusiastic .
Mr. Kellerman is a large stockholder
in the Carlsbad Consolidated Oil com
• pany, and while in the Held he thought
bo well of the proposition that he
1 bought two sections of land on his own
account. Speaking of the conditions
in the field last night Mr. Kellerman
said: "I have Just returned from a per
sonal inspection of the Carlsbad olt
I lands in New Mexico. The belt is
fully six miles . wide, and there is.
everywhere strong evidence of the pres
': ence of oil. 'It is shown in the sand
stone rock on the surface of the ground.
The cattlemen told me that the same
oil indications have existed in that
section of the territory for over twenty
I years. I have operated in Los An
■ geles quite extensively and have sunk
about seventy wells, never falling to
find oil. I have put a lot of money in
I, the company enterprise and I am anx
ious now from what I have seen and
know about the Carlsbad land to pro
ceed at once and drill for oil with the
best machinery that can be secured.
' We have a half dozen good available
drills in this city now and it is the
purpose of the company to ship them
■ to . the field without delay and begin
operations. I believe that oil will be
found at a depth of about 700 feet, and
if even a well of ten barrels a day is
found that Held . will be the biggest
thing In oil operations ever brought to
the , knowledge of the ■ public, for the
reason that the oil. territory is so long
end wide. In my judgment the oil is
brick, 44x155 feet in ' dimensions \ and
occupies a high lot on the east side of
Grand avenue, 160 feet- north of Sixth
street, one block weetTof Central park.
Mr. Conway directed the architect to
provide for the best of material and all
of £he modern conveniences, and the
goods were delivered. In all Los An
geles there is not a better structure for
the .purposes designed than the Con
way building. It Is devoted entirely to
apartment use, there being twenty
eight suites of three rooms each, in ad
there and It only remains for the peo
ple interested to dig for it. The forma
tion of .the ground is somewhat dif
ferent from the formation in the oil
fields of Los Angeles, and different
plans of drilling will have to be fol
lowed in the Carlsbad field, but the ex
perience of Mr. Lonergan, myself and
others will, I guess, be equal to meet
the conditions and secure the best re
sults. The Mount Bros, are now oper
ating in the field but their drills are
not of the proper size. It will take the
best of machinery to go through the
rock and start the gushers. We met
many strangers in the district and at
Carlsbad, all investigating the field
with a view of beginning operations on
an extensive scale."
Now Ready to Talk
Secretary Lonergan said: "Mr. Kell
erman and I spent four days looking
over the field. lam very much grati
fied to know that Mr. Kellerman, who
knows more about oil and oil land in a
minute that I could know in a year,
has verified my Judgment on the indi
cations in the Carlsbad field. I take
'off my hat to him when it comes to a
question of. oil and oil deposits. He
is a known expert who is now in the en
joyment of the result of his knowledge
and operations in that line. When I
first returned from the field I was
afraid to say what I thought of the
conditions and the possibilities of great
wealth, for fear that my friends would
think I was crazy, but now that Mr.
Kellerman has been there and has
confirmed my judgment I am glad that
my friends will know that I was right
and that they were wise in putting
their money into the proposition. I
was fortunate on my last trip to se
cure on my own account 1120 acres of
choice oil land close to 1 the holdings of
the company. It all looks good to me
and I am sure the expectations of the
parties interested in the enterprise will
be more than realized."

yesterday, heavy showers falling in the
forenoon and before daylight. The
official rain gauge showed a precipita
tion of 1.05 Inches in this city, which
makes a total for the season, which be
gan September 1, of 6.16 inches. For
the corresponding period last year the
rainfall amounted to only .57 inch,
but the average seasonable precipita
tion is 7.04, showing a deficiency of 1.20
inches. Included in the total for the
season is .17 inches which fell in
August, which was not accounted for
in the reports covering last season.
