From Mines and Oil Fields
MIDWAY FIVE REACHES
500 FEET IN WELL NO. 1
Pres-iili-lit Il'tmlngsen and a party
composed of Directors Wheatley and
Oliver and :i number of stockholder!
in the Midway live Oil company re
turned to Ijos Angeles Thursday morn
inK, after a trip of inspection to the
company's] property iii section 5, 'A--2U
of the Uidway field.
Drilling is progressing rapidly un
der the drive of the field superinten
dent, Ham Lamb. He has night and day
shifts at work and has the drill down
550 feet, New and commodious quar
ter! for the men have Just been com
pleted and the "opening" of the bunk
and mess house was celebrated with
B dance, showing that social functions
are not disregarded among tho oil
drillers.
Superintendent Ijamn is confident the
first well will be a gusher and that it
will bo brought in at about isoo •'>
lltOO feet depth. Well No. 2 will be
Started shortly on a site directly
of No. 1.
Just south of the Midway Five the
Tiale-Mcl^eod company has a well
down about 1900 feet and into the light
oil sand. St. Lawrence No. 2, close
to the east, is down about 1600 feet,
with every indication of repeating the
success of its first well.
Along the north end line of the Mid
way Five property the Southern Pa
cific is unloading lumber to erect a
line of derricks. The Midway Premier
is preparing to drill on the west side.
The second oil sands lie as flat as a
blanket underneath this section and
thus far not one dry hole has been
experienced.
BAKERSFIELD EXCHANGE
PROPOSES EVENING CALL
At B meeting of the directors of the
Bakerafield Oil Stock exchange held
Monday evening, It was definitely de
cided to open the new oil exchange
Wednesday, May 18. Tho first rail
will be at 10 a. m., and the Bea.sion will
last two hours. For the present there
will bis but one session a day but a
plan is being considered by the di
rectors for an evening session. It Is
argued that an evening call would
be an innovation in California stock
exchange circles and that during the
summer months particularly It would
undoubtedly become popular. An even-
Ing session would afford the many
visitors from San Francisco and Lrf>s
Angeles a chance to watch the board
betwoen trains.
READY TO SPUD IN
The Midway Marlcopa Pnide Oil company
reports that the derrick on the first well on
Its holding on section 34 Is nearly completed
nnd that Superintendent Knnpp expects to
;-pud In early next wri k. Several shareholders
of the company have made a trip to the
Kround, returning last' night, and all of them
pay they are well satisfied with the way work
la progressing there.

A Fact to Consider
When Buying Land
Is the Cost of Getting Your Products to
Market and Still Have a Profit
Do you know that it costs more to ship goods from California to Chicago and New York than it does from
the east coast of Mexico to those same points?
Cheap water transportation makes this possible.
Buy Land in
where the profits are not all paid out in shipping. Our land is located on a navigable river twenty miles
from a railroad and population center. FOUR CROPS A YEAR GUARANTEED. Our present price is
$10.00 an Acre

NEW COMPANY ERECTS
4 RIGS IN ELK HILLS
In loss than a weok the first well of
the East Midway Oil company to drill
on s.ction 2, 31-24, in the Elk hills will
spud in. Four rigs have been erected
on the property and water lines have
been laid. Since the appearance of
the preliminary report on the McKit
tiick-Sunset oil region prepared for
the government by Ralph Arnold and
Harry R. Johnson, the organizers of
the company are bettor pleased than
ever with the location, and they have
hren much encouraged ovor the pros
pect of getting oil.
The geologic and structural map
prepared by the geologists shows tlio
101k hill territory to advantage. A
pronounced anticline about eighteen
miles In length extends through the
district. A second anticline is shown
several miles to the south with an In
tervening syncline a very short dis
tance north of the southern anticline.
The dip of the formation from the
main anticline to the syncline is about
three or four degrees, while from the
second anticline it Is r re greatly pro
nounced, being sixty degrees. These
conditions are regarded as favorable
to the presence of deposit In the basin
between the two anticlines

BOSTON, May 12.— A» soon as the activity
ceases prices commence to sag. The volume
of trading Is small, the bulk of the transac
tions being In odd lots. There seems to be
considerable mystery regarding the exact posi
tion of the metal market. Large sales have
been made recently around 13c, but It Is the
general Impression that this price cannot hold.
Just at present the market has no tendency
either way.

Purchase of a first-class oil stock
during the early stages of develop
ment work on a proven property
assures this desirable result. To be
a first-class oil.stock the company
must have a producing property in
a developed oil field and" be of
ficered by high-grade oil men.
We recommend Coalinga Central
Oil as just such a stock. The com
pany has 120 acres of absolutely
proven oil land in the center of the
producing Coalinga oil field. Has
two producing wells and two more
nearly finished. Has plans made to
drill seven more wells before fall.,
The men back of the enterprise are
among the best and most favorably
known in the oil business.
The stock can now bo bought at
prices around 55c per share (par
$1.00). It is listed on the Oil Ex
changes at San Francisco and Los <
