BAKEUSFIRLt), May 22.—The Kern
lUvcr Oilfields of California, Limited,
which on April 1 took over the Imperial
and Thirty-Three properties In the
Kern river field and large acreage of
Undeveloped land from Keith and
Mack, has plans for the installation of
an electric plant and for drilling a
sufficient number of wells on sections
19 and 25 of the Keith and Mack prop
erties to Increase the production 350,000
barrels yearly, this work to be done
The electric plant is to cost $250,000
and Is calculated to save 20,000 pounds
yearly, based on the fuel consumption
of the leas! for steam for the pumps,
which was 207.134 barrels in 1909.
Some Interesting and hitherto unpub
publlshed data concerning the gross
production and net profits of the Im
perial and Thirty-Three are made pub
lic In the announcement of the com

1909 from property A (section 33) was
1,9»5,634 barrel.*, of which 207,134 were
consumed for fuel and the balance sold
to the Southern Pacific Railroad com
pany at 40 cents the barrel. The total
production from the beginning of oper

[7,981,730 barrels, of which 921,446 bar

Surface Values on One Claim Are
Established to a Depth
of 150 Feet
(Srrrial to Tfce Herald)
TWIN FALLS, Idaho, May 22.—
Theodore Parks has Just brought here
samples of ore freely spotted with
gold, worth $100 a ton, from the breast
of the tunnel that has just pierced the
Taft ledge of the Jarbidge-Pavak
company at JaJ'bldge. The entire breast
of the tunnel Is showing those rich
characteristics, and justifying antici
pations of the principal mining men
who have studied the Jarbidge geo
logical conditions.
Surface values of the Taft ledge are
thus established to a depth of 15U feet.
It is five to fifteen feet wide on the
top, and there were obtained from
those outcropping ores that yielded
almost as much gold as the breust of
the tunnel exhibits. The tunnel is be
ing sent through the ledge 400 feet
furthrr cast, to cut the Pavlak ledge
and establish the continuity of the
great values thereof at a depth of
600 feet.
No doubt whatever Is entertained, in
view of the disclosure of the fine show
ing in the Tuft, that the Pavlak ledge
way down. Its surface values go in -
will be found continuously rich all the
to the thousands, and with the con
tinuity of values established as far
down as 800 feet, one of the principal
reasons for calling Parbidgt) one of
the great camps of the world will have
been fully justified. Within sixty or
seventy days the Pavlak ledge will
have been cut.
The Pick anti Bbovel owner! arc i
sending their shaft down on the hang
ing wall of the ledge and also finding
bonanza ore. Superintendent W. W.
Bcott, formerly of Eureka, I "tall, ar
rived here n few days ago with reports
for the stockholders, and these show
that the average values in the bottom
of the shaft are better than 1.400 a
ton. One of the largest stringers, at
thirty-two feet, yielded ion pounds In
ore as the shaft passed through it,
worth $3 a p.mnd in gold, or about
$6000 a ton. The shaft is now almost
50 feet deep, where the values are in
creasing and on which level the ledge
is to be cross-cut, and its Interior is
expected to show (just as on the sur
face) higher grade ore than on either
the foot or hanging wall.
The Pick and Shovel has been con
sidered, at the surface, one of the most
assuring ledges in the ramp, and the
faot that It is making good consti
tutes the second reason why Jarbidge
mining men are more than ever opti
mistic regarding its future.
Owners of the Bourne ledge (which
the discoverer estimates to contain
$27,000,000 above the surface) have bei n
waiting to learn what the deep pros
pectin,? on the other ledges named
would disclose. The Bourne is con
sidered to be merely one of many rich
ones; Bourne's magnificently targe es
timates of his ores in sight may not
have been ephemeral; but nothing has
been done to prove its richness.
Mining men who sec the Pavlak and
the Pick and Shovel disclosures think
Bourne's ledge will also prove up all
right whenever he Rets to work on
sinking. His property is not, however,
considered the first of value in the
camp, but is regarded at the third, In
view of the recent gratifying results
(d)tained on the Pick and Shovel and
the Pavlak.
Jarbidge camp is seemingly vindicat
ing itself, through deep prospecting.
ITntil the heavy snowbanks disap
peared the prosecution of these opera
tions was financially inadvisable. The
camp has in the meantime relaxed only
Initial boom phases that were super
ficial. Hundreds of people who went in
during the last winter's stampede,
primarily to conduct restaurants,
rooming houses, saloons and gam
bling games, vanished; but 1000 to 1200
people remain In the district, more men
are employed at wages, locations of
claims that were staked on the snow
banks last winter are running out,
and mining men earnestly intent on
procuring claims, and mining, are find
ing better oport unities.
The Tsuccess of Jarbidge district has
depended absolutely upon demolish •
tions of values at depth, which are
proving it to be one of the greatest
gold-bearing areas ever discovered, and
altogether the most Inviting, assuring
field for mining Investors In the Unit
ed States.

Barrel Storage Tanks
Producers' Transportation company
bought yesterday 150 acres of land in
the Grant tract just back of G. W.
Long's farm to the west of this city.
This luututß thai Cue people who con
trol the great pipe lino from the oil
fields to the bay of Kan Luis are going
to proceed at once with another similar
line, for which they have already let
tin contract for the pipe which alone
amounts to over $2,000,000. It also
means that the company Intends to es
tablish an immense storage reserve
within a mile and a half of this city.
For two days surveyors have been
busy down on the Grant tract running
lines, and the farmers in that neigh
borhood believed, from what they could
gee, that an oil refinery was to be es
tablished there.
But the Producers' company has
bought the place and will use it for
holding and storing some of the oil
which it is now engaged in moving
from the Interior to tidewater. On the
land just bought will be erected large
steel storage tanks with capacity for
holding 3,000,000 barrels of oil, and ex
cavations will be made and the interior
lined with concrete sufficiently large
for holding that much more.
Thus the company \ylll be able to
hold 6,000,000 barrels in reserve. Its
present pipe line Is not far away and
will require but little -work to connect
with the supply at the place o fstorage
after the tanks and reservoirs have
been built.
