A brokerage house advising an Im

show some good reason for such advice.
We can give you the very best of rea
sons why Coallnga Crude Is a most ex
cellent buy right now, and this reason
Is that well No. 1 on their property
should be brought In and completed
during the early part of April. There Is
absolutely no chance of not striking
oil, for every foot of their splendid
property In the Coallnga field la proven
oil land. Ruch being the case, stock
bought at anything like the price which
ruiaa now on the Los Angeles Stock ex

profit within two weeks' time. Don't buy
this stock with th« Idea of only taking
the quick profit from the Jump In price
at the tune th» well Is brought In. Buy
with the idea of holding for dividends,
for expert figures show an earning
power for this stock of 2 per cent per

A report on the geology and the ore
deposits of the Bullfrog mining district
in Nyo county, southern Nevada, by
F. \j. Ransomc, W. H, Hmmons and <;.
H. Qiirrey has just been published by
thi' united States geological uurvey as
Bulletin 407.

a tract of arid hills and mountains

miles. •

The discoveries at Tonnpah and Gold

out southern Nevada, and In 1864 the
Bullfrog claim was located. The name
Is said to have been suggested by the
green color of the (ire; certainly no one
has found in that BCOrchlngly arid ic

in a fi-w montliH the towns of Amar-
Rosa City, Bonanza, Dullfrng, Beatty
and Rhyollte rose from the desert sands
and mining was actively begun, but
until ]!)07 only the richest ore was
shipped from the region, for lack of
satisfactory means of transportation.
Gold and Silver Output
In 19U7 three lines of railroad reached
the district, and during that year the
value of Us mineral output was $207,
--535, principally in gold and silver.
The deposits of the Bullfrog district,
unlike those at (Joldfield, are not likely
to jrield quick and largo profits with a
moderate outlay of capital, though
small masses of superficial ort may for
some time reward a few fortunate
lessees. The ores generally are of low
grade and the question whether the
deeper sulphide ores can be profitably
mined is still unanswered.
The report just published sketches
the general geology of the rcsilon and
describes tho ore deposit! In detail.

at Washington.
SAT/r LAKE CITY, March 29.— With
the Incorporation of the banking house
of W. B, McCornlck <fc Co., on April 1,

MANHATTAN, March JO.- Colonel
j. \v. F. Diss, representing Edward
Double of Los Angeles, this week made
the final payment on what Is known
is the Allison ground In the main
gulch. Under the management of I'm
rick Hollin, who is a placer miner of
gome twenty years' experience In Cali
fornia, work has begun on the property
and a force of men is now engaged in
cleaning out the shaft and drifts, pre
paratory to development,
The Allison ground is one of the best
located properties in the gulch, but
owing to poor management in the past
has not paid.
Mr. Hollin, who knows placer mining
from A to Z, believes he can place the
propi rty on a paying ba^is.
Mr. Double has also secured a two
years' lease on the Top fCnob No. 2
placer ground, belonging to John Swan
•-nn and "Malapai John" Mlhelitch, and
will ptart operations there at once.
The property adjoins the September
fraction on the south and comprise!
fiOO feet In the gulch. Tt Is understood
the owners of the, ground will receive
L'n per cent royalty on all the gold
taken out.
Colonel Dlss and Mr. Double are both
Interested In the Four Leaf company,
which is operating in the gulch about

is upnder Ttiley Kakman, who soon cx

no doubt now that the find in of great
value. The gas pressure is suffu ienl
to send a LTi-barrel-a-day itream of

set in the well. These partly obstruct
