saved In tanks Is 40,000 barrel, every
twenty-four hours, besides a big stream
Is going Into sump holes."
The Lake View Oil company of Marl
copa, whose well in fractional section
£5, Sunset-Midway field, broke loose
last Monday at the rate of 1000 barrels
.day ""throwing up a temporary res
e^^wltn capacity of 1,000,000 bar

of oil that is now flowing from the
WThe well was reported yesterday to
be flowing 32,000 barrels a day and
the superintendent at the property
'ays he will be able to take care of
the production with present facilities
for about seven days, after which time
he thinks the big reservoir will be
ready for further storage.
A party of stockholders In the Lake
View company returned yesterday
from the field, where they went Imme
diately after learning that the well
had been brought in. In the party
were Charles P. Off, R. D. Wade.
George Safford. F. P. Veils. Horace
Demis, W. 13. Ambrose and Dr. Clar
en Mr. \vade said yesterday that the
Mr Wade paid yesterday that the
reservoir would, he was informed
while at the property, hold 1,000,000
barrels and was being constructed In
the form of a huge sump hole by
scooping out and damming a canyon
between two hills near the well.
It Is believed that not over 5 per
cent of the oil will be lost through
waste, as the ground in the vicinity of.
the well is very hard.
First reports were that at least 10
per cent would be lost, but expert
opinion and precaution reduces this
estimate one-half.
Pumps Into Tanks
They are now pumping the oil from
the gusher into the Independent tanks
located on the property and the tale
race is flowing into sump holes which
will hold the accumulating; surplus
for at least seven days. The well Is ,
situated on an elevation which makes j
it possible to handle much of the oil
by gravity.
Mr. Off says that when he and party
were there Wednesday the flow from
the well resembled a string of casing j
reaching to the crown block, so bright
was Ihe oil reflected by the sun. The
pressure was such that the oil shot
forth without much noise and the
sand and other particles of formation
in passing through the casing caused
friction that let off a fountain of
sparks as the oil and sand shot up
ward.
These sparks, which were plainly i
visible at night, caused Rome appre
hension on the part of the management
as It was feared they would set fire
to the oil and gas. lint up to the
last report no trouble had been ex
perienced.
Both the Standard and Independent
gaugers were on the ground Wednes
day and estimated the flow at 82,000
barrels a day. between 11 o'clock In
the morning and 3 o'clock in the aft
ernoon.
Others have ventured the opinion
that the flow was even better
40,000 barrels, but Messrs. Wade and
off say o'2 O'pf) is good enough for
them.
Reservoir in Canyon
It Is said the construction Of the
1,000,000-harrel reservoir will be an
easy task as the condition' for quick
work B.re just right In the canyon.
Horn the oil cnn be stored without
much trouble. The canyon will be
closed at one end anil Ihe oil run Into
the Improvised reservoir by gravity
from the well located above.
The Ijfike View nil company, nriir-
Inally financed by Messrs. Wade and
Off nnii F. K. Punlap. has been work-
Ing In the Sunset-Midway Bold for the
past fifteen months. Last August
a one-half Interest in the company
was acquired by the T Tnlon '"'il com
pany, but the Lake View company Is
still Intact nnd for that reason the
frequent references to this well as a
Union well are not correct.
The Lake View Oil company now
has 340 acres of land In fractional sec
tions "•" and '■'*■ and three strings of
tools are drilline:. This numb will
be increased to five strlnirs Immediate
ly. nigs are on the ground for wells
Noa. 4, 5 and 6.
The present (rusher Is "from n <i%
inch easing and the nil is said to
reach at times a, height of twenty
five feet above the derrick. This well
is the largest to yet come in the Mid
way field and proves up several thou
sand acres of land.
When the well came In the gravity of
the oil v.as -i degrees but with the
increase In production it dropped to 19
gravity.

HELVETIA LEVIES
BIG ASSESSMENT
TTCSON. March 18.-Helvctla hns
called an assessment of 50 cents a
share. This will give the company
$85,000 with which to continue its de
velopment work and provide some
needed additional equipment. The as
sessment was made necessary In the
fact that the company's working sur
plus hag been reduced to about $20,000.
A year or more ago Helvetia opened
a body of sulphide ore averaging bet
ter than 5 per cent copper. A portion
Of this ore was shipped to the Old
Dominion smelter. Notwithstanding a
$3 a ton wagon haul and a railroad
freight charge of $1.88, this ore yielded
a profit of $2.50 to $3.50 a ton on a
12 3-4 to 13 cent market. Later, when
the Old Dominion advanced its smelt
ing charge about $2 a ton Helvetia
discontinued shipments.
What promises to ho :i large body of
1 disseminated ore, averaging about 2V4
per cent copper, has recently been lo
cated and is being- opened. So far
400.000 tons has been put in Bight.
fhere is still a prospect that the
Helvetia property has In it the making
of a large mine, bu! the average grade
of the ore will be somewhat lower
than the rich developments of a year
i or more ago led the management to
| believe.
Developments continuing favorable.
Helvetia may later on increase its
capital stock and raise sufficient money
to build eighteen miles of railroad,
i ting the mine with the Southern
Pacific, and also erect a lar«e smelter.
At S4 a share the Helvetia's entire
capital stock is selling in the market
for only $800,000.
COALINGA OIL LAND
SELLS AT TOP PRICE
X W. Preston, general superintend
ent of the Pacific stales company, writ
ing from Coalinga, says sixty acres lo
cated north of th« property of the
Coolings (.'rude Oil company navi
been sold to Los Angeles men for $3"vi)
an acre. Both parties to the transac
tion say they made,a good deal, and
i!i" generous price paid indicates the
high standing the property In that vi
cinity maintains. It could not be
learned yesterday who were the buyer
and seller.
The Coalings Crude well has real hed
a depth of 3'JS feet in ten-inch casing,
passing about thirty feet of heaving
sand. This qui'ksand has had a tend
ency to make the casing stick, but Mr.
Preston says that he thinks the forma
tion will change and thus elimlnat
trouble experienced the past several
days. He says the American Oilfields
tost two strings of casing in this sort
formation before reaching the depth
the Coalings Crude well Las obtained.
The Coalings Aladdin has been bailed
out and Is now ready to be put bai k
on the pump.
Consolidated well No. 1, which has
1 ""ii standing for several days to !■ t
the cemejit thoroughly set, will be
ready today or tomorrow for further
opment. After drilling through ;
the shoe, Mr. Preston says, It will be
only S few 'lays until the "11 sand Is
reached.

CONCENTRATION TO BE BROUGHT

Ore Body Is Being Measured, Tested

tern to Make a Per.
feet Model
KAY, Ariz.. March 18.—The Hay Con
solidated is about tn Increase it* work
ing rorce and put the mine In condition
to supply ore for its new concentra
tor, which is expected to bo Into com
mission by the end of the year. The
concentrator now being built will have
■ capacity of 6000 tons of ore daily,
and it is quite possible that it may be
enlarged to 10,000 tons daily capacity
within a year or two.
The achievements Of such companies
as the Utah Copper and Nevada Con
solidated, working on low grade dis
seminated ores similar to those of Kay
Consolidated, but sllghtlj lower grade,
make it possible to '.resent app oxi
mately accurate figures covering the
future costs, production and earning of
this company.
its ore bodj li b( Ing measured, tested
and proved bo carefully by the drill
work now under way that practically a
perfect model of it is before the engin
eers and mining men who are laying
plans for Its develo; ment and extrac
tion,
the end of this year the entire de
posit Will have hern drilled, its breadth.
depth and thickness and assay valr.es
determined beyond question, and from
that time on it will be a simple manu
fai Hiring proposition.
The ore Will be mined from under
ground by the caving system. The
engln< rs estimate that they will be
able to extract practically the entire
tonnage of ore In the ground. There
I will be no stripping of ore bodies or
m shovel mining.
The mining cost will probably be 40
or 50 cents a ton less than that of Utah
Copper; but there is reason to bi
that the average yield Of Kay ores
will be at least six to eight pounds
more copper a ton than T'tah Copper is
saving. Bay's coat a round of producing
copper, therefore, promises to be lower
than that of the Utah Copper company.
