From Mines and Oil Fields UNPOPULAR OCTOPUS RECEIVES APPLAUSE Newly Organized Weekly in Los Angeles Tells of "Good" Done by the Standard Oil In these df&'S of muckraking ami general revolt against monopoly, says the Oil and Mining Digest, it may bo •well to suggest mildly that there is something to say for large aggrega tions of capital such as Standard Oil. That corporations seems to stand in the eye of a large section of the pub lic as the typical octopus in the ocean of national activities. It is true that Standard Oil has, by the exercise of certain business meth ods, managed to acquire an amount of capital that gives it a tremendous ad vantage in any field of development. Yet it must be remembered that Stan dard Oil is a natural evolution of our national growth. Twenty years ago the newspapers and magazines of the land joined in one unceasing and overwhelming cho- i rus of laudation of Rockefeller and others of his kind who were occupied In the development of natural resources. No praise was too great to be be stowed on them. They were typical Americans— of whom the country had every reason to be proud and men ■whom other countries, trailing along in the wake of this country's marvelous progress, looked on with awe and envy i Schoolboys were taught about the ■wonderful things Rockefeller was doing ■with the added admonition, "Go thou and do likewise." It did not occur to anyone at that period to condemn | Standard Oil, although its Juggernaut car was crushing even then all who could not grapple to its wheels. The Bhouting and the tumult did not cease ■until certain of the wiser sort pointed out that under cover of all this praise and national self-gratulation the oc topus had managed to get a strangle hold on much of the nation's wealth. As far as any national conscience ex isted on the matter in the early days of Standard Oil perhaps the majority of the people of the United States held that the attainment of -wealth was the chief end of existence and admitted that placed in a similar position and given similar opportunities they would act in a similar manner. The man who got the coin was and is still to a great extent the one individual who merited the term ".smart," and deserved the united commendation of the nation. TIMES CHANGE CONDITION In changing times with changing Ideals- in an age of increased popula tion and with natural resources tied up the point of view seems to have altered and Standard Oil and its con freres now come in ■ for as great a measure of execration and condemna tion as they formerly received approv al. Is this just? Standard Oil is an evolution. Not even Rockefeller himself when he set out on his wonderful career had any conception of the extent to which his wealth would grow. It is not in the least degree possible that he contem plated the development of the full grown company which now holds BO large a portion of the commercial field in the United States. The thing grew; could not help growing and cannot help growing still further. It is a Frankenstein-a monster called into existence by the hand of a master hand that conceived It; but grown now out of all its original proportions and master of its master. _ - Even at the worst Standard Oil has not done anything more than other cor porations have done and are still do ing. The very men who cry out most against it are actuated mainly by the fact that its gigantic power renders abortive their own attempts to follow out similar purposes. SOME GOOD TRAITS The much condemned company has, too some good traits about it. It is well known that it treats its employes courteously and liberally. In cases •where the sternest justice would be meted out to offending, negligent or foolish employes it has been lenient. ]t has never forgotten to reward faith ful service and its servants have found certainty of tenure of office and gen erous consideration of their Interests ■when superannuated. All that Is a great deal more than can be said for many of the interests and Individu als who condemn the company and its methods. in California Standard Oil has done nothing more than all the Interests have been doing. It brought hither capital and at a time when capital ■was needed it struck out into the Held of development. If the company has enjoyed rebates 60 have other companies that self righteously accuse, the Standard, It i engaged in legitimate business, under the laws of the United States and in California under the laws of the state. (Both of which are no questioned.— ]2d.) It is giving employment to thou- Bands, It has often gone into virgin fields and spent money there to no re eult; but has given the benefit of its experience in that way to other hold ers of similar property. DIX> ITS PART To the Standard Oil company is due in great part the development of the oil industry in California. It has erected huge reservoirs and bought and stored oil. (It has refined oil chiefly, leaving the development to others.— Ed.) In so far as its methods have been in accordance with the laws of the United States and of this btate it has been acting in good faith and entirely within its rights. If the people of the west are only now awaking to the sense of oppor tunities lust in the line of conserva tion of natural resources that is in cv- cry way their own fault and cannot be blamed on large aggregations of capital like standard Oil. The nation was in a hurry to grow and it is cer tain that without the aid of capital which pioneered the way and built the railroads and developed natural re sources the west would not be today in its advanced stage of progress. What ever changes may nome in the way of curbing the predatory instincts of cor porations and of regulating the stak ing and acquirement of valuable natu ral resources ii should be remembered that in many way.-: companies like Stand by their early and killfu] ac tivities contributed much fo the bet terment of the nation. In conclusion It may be well to remember that cau tion conveyed in the old proverb and render, even to a certain personage not named Ii circles polite, that which la his due. If you ai ■ s prospective real estate ptir< ' i want.- today end every other day.

CLARA CONSOLIDATED PATENTS BIG ACREAGE PARKER, Oct. L'O.— Notices of appli cation for patent of twenty-three min ing claims In the Santa Maria district, and thirty-one In the Harcuvar dis trict, or a total of fifty-four claims, all belonging to the Clara Consolidated Alining company, are published this week in the Wickenburg Miner. The reason that they do not appear in the Swansea Times, where they would seem to naturally belong, is that the Times la not yet a "yearling," and, undor the statutes in such cases made | and provided, no newspaper which has not attained that dignified age is eligi ble to the privilege of printing Uncle Sum's legal notices. The Miner, be ing the nearest duly qualified publi cation, was therefore designated as the paper in which the notices must lie printed. The only really Impor tant point in connection with the sub ject is that the Clara Consolidated is ucqulrlng absolute title to a big bunch of its holdings, and therefore taking another forward step In he course which is destined to bring it Into the front rank of the Kreat mining con cerns of the southwest.

RUTH MINE SUCCEEDS IN NEW DEVELOPMEMTS George Wingfield and Associates i Take Unlimited Capital to Kingman Properties KINGMAN, Oct. 26.—The Ruth mine 1 is being developed by the new shaft, i and report comes from the property ; that it is improving. This property is to be equipped with a complete cyanide plant, capable of handling at least fifty tons of ore daily. Tin- ore opened by former work shows high values and the work is being supple mented by the addition of the new | shaft that will penetrate the heart of I the ore body. The Kuth lies in the rich section, close to the old Moss, tlic property that made the name of San Francisco district world wide by i Its wonderful product of gold ore. From this old Moss mine was taken ore than ran more than $50,000 to the ton. The Kuth values are well dis seminated through the ore and respond readily to cyanide treatment. The management is rushing work on the property and connection with the old works will .soon be made. The new Chilian mills have been put in commission at the Gold Road mill and are said to be doing fine work. These mills will give the big- plant a apacity of more than 300 tons daily, making the production of gold more than $100,000 monthly. It is reported that the mine, in its development to the. east of the Billy Bryan shaft, con tinues to open rich ore. The mine now has reserves of more than three years for the big milling plant, all of which will pay largely under present condi tions. Report corners to Kingman that a prospector by the name of George has di« overed a vein of ore In the neigh borhood of the Hercules camp that shows wonderful values in gold along a larpe part of the outcrop. The vein is quite large and the preliminary work is exposing a large tonnage of the rich material. The locality is one of the best in the district, and should it prove as rich at depth as the surface showing Indicates it will be the bo nanza property of that region. FALMER OIL ACQUIRES GRACIOSA PIPE LINE SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 26.—A deal ree< ntly rut through "ii the bay by which the Palmer Oil company be comes possessor of the Graclosa pipe line, from Cat canyon to Avila, is be inj; hi arl'led as placing the concern behind only the Standard. Associated ami Union as a factor in the market ing end of thp business. The deal Just consummated ia one that has been rumored In oil circles for several month?. The pipe line will extend from the wells in Cat canyon to Avila. This pipe line is to 1»- an 8-inch main with a carrying capacity of from av.OOO to 20,000 barrels per day. To han He this big supply of oil the Palmer i>il company has asked for bids to construct four new storage barrels' capacity each, which will i;iv" the company a com bined sto iclty of a quarter million barrels. In addition the trans portation facilities by water at Avila are being improved. This port has ■at tow ii' and is an ideal for oil. Work will be started Immediately on tlie pipe line to connect with the Gra oiosa line recently purchased while the b\g steel tanks should ba begun within a few weeks. The add'tlon to the pipe line should be completed in thirty days. Pending its completion well No. 2 has been shut down, as the company has no means of handling the immense output of oil. At the present time the prop H ■ of the Palmer Oil company are pro ducing 16,000 barrels daily and fur ther contemplated dcvi lopments will increase the production two-fold. The Palmar Oil company controls 2710 acres of land by virtue of its in terests in the Palmer Junior and Pal mer. Senior, oil companies.

Official Says Canada Has 50-000,000 Cords for Our Papermakers (Associated Press) WASHINGTON, Oct. 26.—Action of the government of the province of I Quebec, prohibiting the exportation of j pulpwood out of crown lands under lease on and after May 1, 1910, and on settlers' lands taken up on and after September 1, 1910, will not have the effect of reducing the quantity of pulp- j wood for export for years to oome, and perhaps never, according to Con sul pebbard Willrich of Quebec, who has made a report on tho subject to this government. Consul Willrich reached this con clusion after a careful study of the pulpwood situation in Quebec. The conclusion, he says, would not be jus tified if settlers' lands located on prior, to September 1, 1910, could have been j made subject to the restriction, but ■ that cannot be done for legal and other reasons. To deprive such settlers of , their lands, he says, is not practicable, i nor even contemplated. Referring to the idea expressed by many that the lands of the province which furnishes most of the pulpwood will become exhausted, Mr. Willrich quotes the following from an authority writing in the Pulp & Paper Maga zine of Canada: "From a very conservative estimate there are over 2,000,000 acres In for est lands in the seignories in Que bec, and about 3.000.000 acres of pat ented and located lands, none of which will be subject to the prohibition. Thi would approximately give 50,000,000 cords of pulpwood. free to go to the United States, which means that we can supply the United States market (taking as an average, the greatest quant'ty already shipped in one year to the United States, namely, 1,000, --000 cords) for SO years to come. 1' SAFEGUARD ENFORCING OF CORPORATION LAW New Mexico Constitutional Con vention Adopts Unique Provision SANTA FE, N. M., Oct. 26.—The commission on corporations of the New Mexico constitutional convention adopted today a unique safeguard i against delay in the enforcement of orders of the state corporation com mission. The plan originated with H. O. Bursum, chairman of the com mittee and also chairman of the state Republican committee. P.y its provisions, if any person or persons affected by an order of the commission falls to appeal to the su-i preme court of the state, the order I and accompanying documentary evi dence shall be at once submitted to the supreme court to be affirmed. Tho court is to be considered always In j session for that purpose and must j ihe consideration of the order j preference over all other cases. If error be found In the order, it is to be sent back to the commission for tlon and then affirmed. Thus a indicia l precedent of the highest trib unal of the state is established and n i delay can be caused by subse quent litigation. The commission is to consist of three elective members and will have a | wide Bcope of power, from chartering all new corporations to rate making) for common carriers.
