OIL REFINERY Is Being Talked of by Mun:ie Oil Men. Muncie, Ind., November 30 There is a movement on foot among the large producers of this section to ward establishing a refinery at a centrally located city near the East ern Indiana field, and the laying of a pipe line that will connect the Mun cie and Marion fields with the plant. The proposition hasb een discussed ed generally, and it is meeting with much favor, but as yet no one has come forth with enough enthusiasm to take the iniative in this big un dertaking. While ultimately it would undoubtedly be purchased by the Standard Oil company, it is general hr conceded that it would be a good proposition financially. Several refineries of a like nature have been erected in other fields,and while they primarily fought the Standard Oil company and eventual ly lost, they were regarded as good investments. All these refineries were purchased by the Standard Oil company within a short time after their opening. The producers in the local field are of the opinion that such a plant will be begun within a short time. They believe that next spring will wit ness its completion, but so far there has not been any action toward its construction. Senator Fairbanks in Boston. Boston, Mass., Dec. 1.
