From Mines and Oil Fields
SOUTHERN PACIFIC GRANTS ARE
WORTH FIVE HUNDRED MILLIONS
California Lands, Known to Contain Oil, Now Held by Railroad,
Which People May Demand Returned to Government, Are
Valued at Greater Sum Than That Set by Geolog
ical Survey-System in Early Days When
Selling Land Reserved Mineral Rights
Something of an idea of what the
Southern Pacific owns in California in
oil lands by the .grace of a congres
sional act which Intended to convey to
It agricultural, never mineral, land is
shown by a simple examination of the
holdings _f that company now in the
hands of Its subsidiary, the Kern
Trading and Oil company, in the
proved fields alone. ;
■■ When Kern River was first opened
the railroad apparently did not appre
ciate oil's Importance, for It leased
and sold quite a block of Its holdings,
all in fact within the now producing
belt except 440 acres on the northern
three-quarters of 3, 29-28, on which lt
is now operating extensively. To the
north and west of the producing belt
there are no railroad lands, but to the
east, in township 28-28. lt still holds,
in Its own name, all of 23 and 25 and
to the east as oil field maps generally
extend, but beyond this It has other
lands.
The Big Indian OH company has ac
quired land on three sides of section
23, namely, all of 14 in north half and
the southeast quarter, and the south
west quarter of the southwest quarter
of 24 and the west half of 26, lying on
the north, east and south, respectively,
of 23. The Big Indian land on 24 also
adjoins on the north the railroad's
property on 25, and that on 26 Joins on
the north the railroad land on 25. Any
success on the part of the Big Indian
will give to this railroad land value
for oil that it does not now appear to
possess.
HOLDINGS IN COALINGA
At Coalinga the K. T. and O. hold
ings are enormous. They comprise a
total of 15,500 acres in townships 19
and 20, range 15 and 20, range 14 and
21-15. This takes no account of that
which has been leased to other com
panies from which the railroad has a
right to buy nil the oil at market
price.
The K. T. and O. lands at Coalinga
comprise tho following: In 19-15, on
the east side, all of 3, 11, 13, 23, 25, 35
and 33, and the west half of the west
half of 31, a total of 4640 acres, besides
which section 5 stands In the name of
the Southern Pacific.
ln 20-16 all of 1, 8, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15,
17, 19, 21, 23, 29, 27, 33 and 35; 440 acres
of 7, 560 acres of 81, 560 acres of 19, a
total 6t 8040 acres; besides which sec
tions 25 and 13 still stand in the name
o fthe Southern Pacific. The only de
velopment on this land is on the west
of 7 and 19, but work by others Indi
cates that in all probability 95 per
cent at least of the whole Is good for
oil, perhaps every acre of it. In 20-14,
all of 25, 400 acres of 13, 400 acres on 23
and 160 ares on 1, a total of} 1600 acres.
It is probable, almost certain, that the
west parts of the holdings on 1 and 23
are barren, but the remainder is proved
territory. Twenty-five is highly devel
oped along the east line, to some ex
tent along the north and west, while
on the south the Associated work on
36 has proved all the land.
':■ . . . SOUTH OF COALINGA
On 21-15 the K. T and O. has all of
6 and 7, equaling 1220 acres. In this
township the Southern Pacific has
every other section, but has not trans
ferred the remainder to the K. T. and
O. Immediately south of Coalinga it
has sections 1, 3, 9, 11, 17, 15, 13, 19 and
21. The Associated has acquired 23,
originally a railroad section. The same
condition prevails some distance to
the south. The above nine sections of
Southern Pacific land make 5760 of
this township, and with the K. T. and
O.s 1280 makes a total of 7040 acres of
railroad patented lands.
In 19-16, 20-16 and 21-16 the railroad
' owns the odd numbered sections which
still stand in Its own name, except
where they have been transferred to
private parties, which is the case in i
a few instances. The operations of
the Coalinga Mohawk and the South
eastern, on 12, 18-20 and 18, 20-16 re
spectively, have enormously enhanced
the value of the Southern Pacific lands
in 20-16. In the two westernmost tiers
of sections in 20-16 the railroad has
8200 acres, and in the same tiers in
19-16 3840 acres. It is probable that
part of the last, especially that to the
north, is barren, but of much in 20-16 '
there appears every reason to believe
is good.
Although, counting K. T. & O. hold
ings and Southern Pacific lands in its
own name the probably good land
held by the railroad Interests in Coa
linga amounts to 28,880 acres, not tak
ing into consideration whatever in 19
--14, back of the break, where the rail
road owns every other section and is
directly in line to get the benefit of
any strikes that may be made in the
future, should any ever be made, and
there are some who believe that oil
will be found there and are trying to
get it. Neither does this take any
account of railroad lands In the west
of 20-14 and in 21-14 to the west and
south of the break nor of that lying
far to the south of Coalinga.
The amount of this land is greater |
than that which the Associated in Its ,
annual report claims to have in its ]
own name. A statement was published
some time since that the railroad had j
a report from one of its experts in
which its oil property was declared to
be worth $50,000,000. The Associated is
capitalized for $40,000,000, and this ex
pert's estimate of Southern Pacific
lands worth only $10,000,000 more will
be considered by many persons as ri
diculously small.
__\RG_ KERN PROPERTIES
In Sunset the K. T. & O. is develop
ing the northeast quarter of 1, 11-24.
The railroad has standing in its own
name, some of which may have been
transferred recently to the K. T. & 0.,
the following: In 12-23, all of 31, 33
and 35, amounting to 1920 acres, and
all of fractional sections 25, 27 and
29, about 1000 acres. Adjoining these
lands are those on which are found
the Lakeview and Consolidated Mid-
Way's gushers and the Pacific Midway,
La Blanc and Ethel D.
| In township 11-23, on the Maricopa
Flat, the railroad has all of 1, 3, 5,
_;. 11, 18, and three-fourths of 15, a
total of 4320 acres.
I In McKittrick the K. T. & O. has
about 100 acres in small blocks highly
.developed. In township 30-22 the rail
road holds In Its own name all of 1,
3,6, 9, 11, 13, 15, 23, 25, 33, 570 acres
Of 17, 510 of 7, 400 of 21, 440 of 27 and
JAMES WYNKOOP
80 of 32 and 160 of 19, a total of 8360
acres.
In 29-22, McKlttrlck Front, the rail
road holdings comprise sections 5, 7, 9,
15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 29, 31, 33 35 and half
of 3, three-fourths of 11 and 400 acres
of 13, a total of 10,160 acres, the value
of most of which is still problematical.
In Midway the railroad's holdings
amount to 14,400 acres. In 32-23 it has
still standing in its own name all of 1,
3, 11 and all of 13, a total of 2560 acres.
In 31-23 it has all of 6, 7, 9, 15, 21, 23, 25,
27, 29, 33 and 35. half of 17 and 13 a
total of 1600 acres. In 32-34, lying south
and east of Taft and extending to
Buena Vista lake, the railroad has a
total of sixteen complete sections, i a
total of 10,240 acres.
. In 31-24 in the Elk Hills, where the
Associated, Balfour-Guthrey, Barno
don, Midway Basin and several others
are at work, the railroad has ten sec
tions, a total of 6400 acres. In 30-24
It has 6720 acres. This gives the com
pany a grand total in the West Side
fields of Kern 53,480 acres. Some of
this land is proven, practically all of it
is excellent prospect ground.
84,400 ACHES ALL TOLD
Thus it will be seen that the railroad
holds and claims 84,400 acres in proved
and the immediately prospective oil
fields above named, besides its other
lands referred to and that which it has
leased to other oil producers. "It is
impossible to estimate Just what It has
In a few other sections, but' this com
prises the bulk of its holdings. It is
easy to see how much it has at stake
should the government attempt to re
voke its patents. . *
The demand that the government at
tack the title of the Southern Pacific
oil holdings in California lands received
in the federal grants involves esti
mated values totaling $500,000,000, ac
cording to the geological survey. Should
the government proceed to recover coal
deposits taken up as agricultural land,
approximately $150,000,000 would be
added to the stakes. Of the 20,000,000
or 30,000,000 acres held by others than
the railroads only about 600,000 acres
were purchased from the government
as mineral land.
Applying the principle on which the
demand as regards the oil holdings ls
based, the lands bearing precious met
als In all the railroad grant areas along
the Northern Pacific lines should re
vert to the government. . The geologi
cal survey will attempt no estimate
of the value of these other than to de
clare it to be several billions.
An interesting phase of this new
question that is attracting national In
terest is that it has been a common
practice for the railroads In selling the
lands to reserve expressly for them
selves whatever minerals might be
found at any future time.
LADY WASH LANDS
CASING IN SHALE
Water Is Believed to Be Shut Off
in Sunset Property
Well
> __
In well No. 1 of the Lady Washing
ton, Sunset. district, the 8-inch casing
has been landed in brown shale at a
depth of 2100 feet and indications are
that the mater has been completely
shut off. The well will be allowed to
stand for a few days to determine, ab
solutely, when drilling will again be
started. It is believed that the main
oll_sand will be found in about 100 to
160 feet of drilling as this is about the I
depth at which the sand has been en
countered in other wells in the im
mediate vicinity. .
Jewell Oil company's well No. 11,
Kern river district, is down 1160 feet
and is expected to be finished within !
the next few days. The well is ex- j
pected to como in fully up to the aver
age of those recently finished and pro-
I ducing. The property is in the west
ern portion of the district.
Drilling on No. 2 of the Ventura Oil
Development company on Its 160 acre
tract at Plru, Ventura county, Is again
in progress, a new standard derrick
having been erected and other im
provements completed. This well
should shortly enter Into the produc
tive stage.
RELIEVED OF TROUBLE
TAFT, Oct. 14.—The Pyramid Oil
company is down 1750 feet on sec-
I tion 26, 31-22, North Midway, nnd has
Just passed through 165 feet of stub
born and troublesome water sand. The
ten-inch string is stuck, and efforts are
being made to free It. If successful,
the water will be shut off in the
sticky blue shale underlying the water
sand, with this string. If unsuccess-
ful, It will be necessary to put in a
string of eight-Inch for that purpose.
The produ"tlve oil sand is expected to
be reached at 1850' or 1900 feet.
UNITED GETS SHOWING
FELLOWS, Oct. 14.—1t is reported
here that the United Oil company drill
ing on the Traction lease on section
19-31-22, lias had an apparently good
showing of oil at 2240 feet. The oil
is light.
This hole is the third one started
on the Traction lease, the first two
having been ruined. Operations have
extended over a year.
In this connection it is also stated
that Vancey, on the same section,
made a strike some months ago which
fact was concealed.
FLOWS 150 BARRELS
MARICOPA, Oct. 14.— deep well
of the Honolulu Consolidated on sec
tion 4, 32-24 continues to flow about
150 barrels a day. The well is 2700
feet deep, the oil 16 gravity. Superin
tendent Pollard will change the size
of the tubing, In an effort to Increase
the flow. .
Well No. 1 on section 10, the first
well of the company, continues to flow
by heads with considerable force. The
output of this well is about the same.
Los ANCELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING. OCTOBER. 15, 1910.
PIERCE WILL CONFER
WITH OIL MEN TODAY
Assistant Secretary of Interior
Hopes to Solve Problem
Vital to Industry
California oil men, representing all !
factions in the industry, will meet at i
Symphony hall at 10 o'clock this morn- j
ing to confer with Prank Pierce, as
-Ist ant secretary of the Interior, who;
is here for the purpose of making an :
investigation Into conditions now ex
isting and to learn what the oil men
wish. He desires to get the Informa
tion first hand, from the oil men, and
for the sake of accuracy all the argu- |
ments and questions and answers at |
this meeting and subsequent meetings
will be worked into stenographic re
ports. These reports will be revised
and later sent to Washington.
The California OH Men's association
has sent a delegation to Los Angeles
to confer with Mr. Pierce, and other
organizations will bo represented at
the meeting today. Mr. Pierce says he
does not think he will be able to hear \
everybody at the one meeting, and :
for that reason an adjournment will
be made until Monday morning at the ■
close of the meeting today, which will
last until 1 o'clock In the afternoon.
Mr. Pierce expects to remain in Los
Angeles until Thursday, If necessary,
and If it is thought advisable he will
make a personal inspection of the oil.
fields, although he says that would notf
be productive of very much good to i
the cause of the oil men, as he Is not a ,
geologist but an engineer. His object;
In coming here ls to find out what the
oil men wish and need, and he believes I
that if there is a sufficient representa- |
tion at the meetings It will not be j
necessary for him to go to the fields. I
However, that is a ' matter he will j
decide later.
Of the oil situation Mr. Pierce says: i
"As to the solution, I suppose oil i
men want either a more liberal con- I
struction of the statute permitting In- j
dications of oil to be considered equiv- j
alent to discovery, or else that con
gress shall amend the law giving pros- |
pectors exclusive posseslson for a defi- j
nite length of time, thereby protecting
them In their tentative rights."
Oil men will in all probability take
keen Interest in this opportunity to
present their views direct to one of
the assistants of the department of
the interior, and take advantage of the
opportunity to discuss in detail the
various rulings of the land office, par
ticularly In the Yard and Mesmer
cases, as Secretary Pierce Is extremely
anxious to have these decisions dis
cussed from all standpoints.
MINE NEAR PHOENIX '
RETURNS RICH VALUES
PHOENIX, Oct. After going
over the ground of the Mammoth mine
at Goldfield, panning gold from ore
taken right off the surface and explor
ing all the lower workings now opened,
i J. E. Nelson declares that the stories
I told of the wonderful richness of this
property have greatly understated the
true facts.
Nelson is not interested in the Mam
moth mine. In fact, no one is largelyl
interested in It personally except j
George U. Young, secretary of Arizona, j
who took it over last spring and start
ed 'development work. But Nelson de
sired to inspect the mine and see for
himself whether the accounts given
by Secretary Young and others were I
true. Not only were they true, he |
says, but only a small part of the truth
was told. His many years' experience
: in the mining business enabled him
to quickly tell that the Mammoth is a
gold mine of untold wealth.
He picked up ore from the surface
in which gold was visible to the naked
eye, and saw the yellow metal horned
out. Though only a part of the val
ues can be extracted by horning, a
long stringer of gold was left in the
I bottom of the pan.

! AGREEMENT QUIETS FEAR I
i . I
! COALINHA, Oct. 14.—The signing of |
the agreement between the Associated \
I Oil company and the Independent Pro-|
I ducers' agency has produced a marvel- i
I ous change already in Coalinga and
| the Coalinga field. No sooner had the i
; word spread that the Associated and |
i the Agency had Joined hands than the j
! town of Coalinga became practically I
deserted of life. The operators all I
1 hastened to the fields and are now I
i working with might and main. Every I
! well that was shut down because of \
I the Inability of the Agency to handle '
■ the supply is now preparing to open i
up and -ome are already opened up j
I and once.more oil is flowing in large
quantities.
The effect of this agreement was
more far reaching in Coalinga than in
any other California field owing to
the fact that the Agency controls such
1 a large proportion of the output in
this field.
MAY HELP M'KITTRICK
McKITTRICK, Oct. 14.—A strike that
may mean a great deal to the McKit
trick field and that territory west of
it, lias just been mad?, and the result
of the pumping test now being carried
on is awaited with great interest.
The Mahaske Oil company, on sec
tion 36-29-21, has completed Its No.
1 well at 1850 feet. It has 300 feet of
sand, and from all accounts will prove
to be a fair producer. This well Is one
mile West of the famous .Nicarema
well, the pioneer well of the locality.
The Nicarema was drilled by Jim
O'Donnell, and was the first well to
reach oil on the McKlttrick front. Op
erations have been conducted in this
territory for the past year with very
little result. A promising showing has
been reported from time to time, but
as yet no real producing well has been
brought, in. The Mahaske company
has just perforated Its well, and it Is
now being put on the pump. The suc
cess of the well will add another mile
to the producing belt.
CEMENTS OFF
SANTA MARIA, Oct. Graceosa
No. 1 has been cemented off at the
bottom with success. The production
of the wells on this tract has been
increased 3000 barrels since the work
of cementing off all old water holes
was begun, and a regular average of
9000 barrels per month Is now the or
der of things.
PRODUCES 175 BARRELS
SANTA MARIA, Oct. 14.—Well No. 1
in Cat, Canyon is showing a good 175
barrel production from a heavy strat
um of oil sand. This well has been
tested for some time and begins to
look like a substantial producer at
about 200 baxrels dally.

FRENCH EXPERT .THINKS
U. S. TARIFF TOO HIGH
That the present tariff schedule is
too high and the United States may
suffer commercially as a reffult, is the
opinion of Louis Gells-Didot, minister
of commerce of France, who Is in Los
Angeles on a tour of the United States
to study commercial: conditions. Mon
sieur Didot makes this tour about once
ln every five years. He has arrived
at the conclusion that the tariff Is too
high for the good of the country, and
predicts * that the United States will
wish it was lower. . • . ,
In the course of his travels he al
ways visits Los Angeles, and expressed
himself • yesterday as amazed lat the
size and growth of this city In the
past five years. ;.■,'■ ■ '•-.'_
