BIS BUS MAKES LAST
PAYMENT ON PLACERS
Mayer Claims, Worked Profitably
in Early Days, Will Soon
Final payment was made Baturd&y
to T P. Averill by the Big Bug Dl
ing company on his group of live placer
mining claims at Mayer, Arlsona, I'>">
management of the company an
nounced as soon as the payment wai
made that arrangements are under way
to begin the equlpmont of the property
curly next month. It is proposed to
build a dredging plant with a capacity
of 3000 yards a day. Tho plant will !><•
nt least three times as (ana as the
one recently completed on the propel
ties of the Speck Mining company on
Besides the Averill holdings the com
pany recently took over, under lease,
several patented claims in Mayer and
some claims on which patent lms been
applied for, belonging to the estate of
Joseph Mayer, deceased. The company
now controls a basin of tho Big Kub
river one mile and a half In length, the
claims covering almost the entire town
Tho Averill and Mayer placers have
proved very rich In placer gold, and
besides havo been pronounced by emi
nent mining engineers admirably ad
apted to the dredge system of placer
mining. In fact, the ground Is consid
ered the best dredging proposition ex
amined in the entire territory.
Many handsome fortunes were taken
from these claims by the pioneer min
ors who worked them. Recent examin
ations show that only tho rich spots
have been scratched, and that the
ground which now covers former beds
of the creek Is as rich as any discov
ered by the pioneers.
FINISHES BIG WELL
Latest Doheny Achievement Does
5000 Barrels Daily by
The American Oilfields has finished
another well. No. 73, on its great pro
ducing section, 36, 31-22, Sunset, which
is doing 6000 barrols a day by actual
measurement. The well is ÜBS feet deep
and has two strings of pipe. The prod
uct is a light gravity. Field Manager
Jim O'Donnell reports that the well is
one of the best, all points considered,
he has ever seen. The well first flowed
several weeks ago, but after trouble
from eand was drilled deeper.
On this section the American hns a
trio of remarkable well 3. No. TJ, which
was recently finished, appears to have
increased its flow and fa now doing
about 1200 barrels. No. 67, one of the
first big wells brought in. is doing 1000
barrels In addition to these there are
several smaller wells. No. 59 la doing

FAIL TO GET QUORUM;
ADJOURNS FOR ONE WEEK
BAKERSFIELD. May 20.—Because
only 44 out of 135 stockholders of the
Independent Oil Producers' agency as
sembled today, the meeting adjourned
for lack of a quorum until Friday next.
The purpose of the meeting is to
name directors, who in turn will ap
point an executive committee.
At the meeting today a committee
consisting of U P. St. Clatr, M. V.
McQulgg, J. Benson Wrenn and Leon
ard Merrill was appointed to suggest a
list of names for the executive com
mittee, the same to be considered at
the meeting on Friday next.
EAGLE CREEK CONFLICTS
WITH SANTA FE ON SIX
BAKERSFIELD, May 20.—The Eagle
Creek's well on section 81, 31-23, Mld
way is sanded up following a succes
sion of interesting events. The well was
making about 1000 barrels a day on tho
pump and everything was moving
smoothly. So much gas came from the
well, however, that it was considered
advisable to move the boiler farther
awny. The pump was stopped for this
purpose, and when it was started
again it was found that the valve was
choked with sand.
The tubing was pulled and the well
began to flow at a 1500-barrel rate.
It sanded up after a short perform
ance, and now it will be necessary to
clean out the well. When this is done
the pumping will be resumed, and un
less it is necessary no more opportu
nities will be given the well to volun
teer a flow.
Captain Scofleld says whenever the
Eagle creek is in commission the Santa
Fe'H big well on section 6, Just over
the line from the Eagle Creek, stops
flowing. The Santa Pc will clean out
the well in the hope of bringing It
back to its former record.
In addition to its faculty for stealing
the Santa Fe's production, the Eagle
Creok'l well has the peculiarity of
sending up rocks with holes in them.
These, nolei are round and range up to
an Inch and a quarter In diameter. It
is supposed that they were a part of a
honeycombed stratum, the hollows of
which are filled with oil.
