FROM ELBA (Continued from cage one) would run for governor or senator. To these trained observers there was no longer any doubt that the sage of Missoula would breast the tape line when the great race of 1928 starts. The republican pilgrims who turned their faces towards the Placer last Sunday, like the wandering Jew to wards Jerusalem or the Mahomet to wards Mecca, were unlike the veri^at ed conglomeration of company haters who crowded the ex-governor's room in the Füllen— tney were leaders of his party who had campaigned with him in the past. Nearly all of them urged him to be a candidate for the sen ?J e ". . ... „ T . . . Washington or Helena, Which? Because of the widespread feeling; that Wheeler has run his course—that "his sins have found him out" and his appalling record of treachery to the people of the state has become known leading republicans are saying that all Dixon has to do is to enter his name for the office of senator to win. Against Wheeler he would hardly have to make a campaign. It was conceded on all sides that he would be nominated in the primary without op position and would win in November with a majority of 25,000 votes. It would please the big men of his party and the independents of the state to have a man in Washington who would not sneeze every time John D. Ryan or Con Kelly take out their silvered snuff boxes in New York. But— On the other hand many feel that their greatest vote getter should lead the van of battle in the campaign for the governorship. There is where the hard fight will have to be made. There is also a seething unrest directed against the continued government of the state by the minions of one gigan tic corporation. The occupancy of the governor's mansion by John Erickson has not met with the approval of even the members of his own party. His appointments have not pleased any body outside of Mr. Jim Hobbins. The promises of his supporters that the governor would inaugur-.te an era of economy have not materialized. The cold fact is that while the income of the state has increased by over two millions the debt is greater than when Dixon went out of the capital. De spite the fact that the governor is dominated by his purchasing agent, who was a former purchasing agent for the Anaconda company, Mr. Er- 1 ickson must answer to the people for his administration. In the capital it is "Governor Murphy" who is held re-1 sponsible for every act of the chief executive from his visits to the out -1 houses in the capital grounds to his I whitewashing excursions to Warm! Springs; but in the wide open spaces and cities of Montana, where John Erickson is not known as a "Yes : Man" to "Gov" Murphy, the governori must shoulder responsibility for the j state administration. He must give an account of his stewardship to the people. Dixon for Governor Erickson is as weak with the mem- ( bers of his own party as is Wheeler l but it is conceded that he would cut into republican strength in the final election. For that reason many urge Dixon to run for the hardest office to attain—that of company" would fight him bitterly for this office but he would have the support of the Butte Miner—the daily f newspaper with the largest circulation and most influence and the independ- i ent press of the state. He would win where another candidate would have | hard sledding. By Dixon running for governor re , publican? contend that they could elect their whole ticket. Rankin would win a walk if Wheeler should happen to be the democratic nominee. Bourquin Looms Here, is where some more figuring comes in. Judge George Bourquin is ready to announce his candidacy for democratic senator if Dixon decides to N run for governor. Bourquin's friends are confident that he would defeat Wheeler in the primaries but the Fighting Judge has a strong admira tion for the sage of Missoula and would not care to face him in the fi nals.. If Dixon does decide to run for governor .the line up for senator in the finals is likely to be Rankin the republican ticket and Bourquin the democratic ticket. That will be a pretty race. Both ar eyoung men. Both are very progressive in political outlook. They are good speakers and 01 amatic and forceful personalities. But there is a differente in an import Hnt particular. Rankin is a dry while Bourquin is a wet and an uncompro mising supporter of Al Smith. This would make an interesting race with a great question the subject of debate between two of the most alert minds Of the state. governor. The U in on on .

Ill f $14,000 'I mi ok Makes a r Million Mb I The oil industry of the country, since the time of Coal Oil Johnny, bas furnished no more romantic stories than those of Montana Independents. Montana oil seems to be for the "little fellow. The big Standard companies have yet to register im portant discoveries or successes in this state. The Independents are the ones who have opened up the new fields and have made the "big money. Fifty-six Petroleum corporation of Miles City is one of those whose story is romantic enough for a place in. the world story of oil. Early in the history of Cat Creek, when there grave doubt whether Cat Creek was an oil field, a group of Miles City men decided that the old Frantz well on the Musselshell river, then making about 10 barrels of oil and water a day, was indicative of something BIG. They backed up their belief to the extent of an expenditure of $14,000.00. was divided into 56 units of $250 name: Fifty-six Petroleum They purchased ta lease on the Richard Ihde farm and drilled a well. It was a good producer. The Ihde farm was looked upon as the center of the new field. The Fifty-six group had many chances to sell. They did sell part of their 320-acre lease, get ting $1,000 .an acre. Virtually over night the'eom pany was on a dividend basis. It continued drilling out one 40-acre tract. The company drilled 13 wells. Only 40 acres of its 320 Few institutions in the United States can shv a more remarkable record, especially in view of tk fact that the company PAID ITS OWN WAY ia tie meantime. '* For its operations were not confirmed to ùt Creek. The company took time out—also a lot of mono —to drill a wildcat in Beauvais struct are, in south eastern Montana, and .failed to find any mon oil When Kevin-Sunburst was developed, Fifty-Six was apparently ready to "go to seed" in Cat Crwk. It seemed to have little prospect of further produc tion, without deep test drilling, which is expensive so the Miles City people turned their attention to Kevin-Sunburst. was flyer at the 100-to-l shots. First they look They secured a large block of acreage southeast «I the field—and drilled a dry hole. Then they secured a considerable block of acreage in the south e;'d and drilled another dry hole. Unable to break in b) way of a new and grand entrance, they decided to walk in the narrow front door of Kevin-Sunbursi and took over a modest lease in the East end of lb field—ia part oif the Putman farm which was ^ by Dr. Caine of Rochester, Minn., who was a F'- 1 !' six stockholder. This sum each. Thus the company. « slid "Here's where the Fifty-Six goes bump their "encouraging" pessimistic friends. It is not official record, but it is probable that some of tk* stockholders "squawked" loudly because further expenditure of money. acres produced. Ihe common law trust was organized into a $500 - 000 corporation, the stock of which was divided among the organizers. That was in May, 1920. Dur mg 1921 the company paid $125,000 in dividends. of tk maiM^ra*®* the Fifty 4 * 1 off dry hok the ^ But again fool luck and efficient counted out new dividends because drilled nine consecutive producers, starting a 350-barrel well, before completing a They drilled six more producers before dry hole, then seven producers before the thir ^ hole; two more producers and then the fourth ^ hole; then eight more and then the fifth an '. more dry holes.
