Tlio cold snap, tbe flrst ot the winter,
that arived Wednesday, caused
some delay as operators were unprepared
for the sudden change. The
tirst intimation of a shortage ot gas
was in evidence yesterday morning
when the gas companies supplying gas
to manufacturing plants in Washing
'ton and Pittsburgh had their supply
shut off. Domestic consumers had
no complaint, except iu a few districts.
Should the weather during the
winter months prove severe the short
age will likely be felt in all tec;ions
An ufliciu! connected with one o[ the
large companies furnishing natural gas
*.u Pittsburgh slated that his company
v.as entering the winter with no great
er supply iban ill llie earlv surins
mouths. This condition, he ^ated.
is uoi due lo a luck of effort to so
cure an increased supply. During the
year the company completed more
than in the early spring months. This
condition, lie stated, is not duo to a
lack of effort to secure an increased
supply. During the year 'lip company
completed more than 000 wcUh and the
majority of the number located in deep
sand territory. Drilling was carried
on in the old districts and explorations
icii i i'tu uiiu iirw mm uiuricu lerniory.
Tha only discovery of any importance
was thai of -at; in a deeper formation
than previously known. During
the summer tho Hope Natural Gas
company tlriled a well near Ovorlield,
Barbour county, \V. Va.. to a depth
01' 4.20(1 feet and developed a small/gaBser
in a hitherto unknown sand formation.
Two and one-lmlf miles south
of this well the same company has
just drilled a well on the Paugh farm
to the same formation and developed
a gas pressure of 200,000 cubic feet
a day.
Near Bridgeport! Harrison county,
tho Hope Natural Gas cot puny is
drilling an important deep test located
on the Mary O. Uofl' farm. At this
well they are still carrying an eightinch
hole at a depth of 5,200 feet.
So far as known this is the first well
ever drilled in the eastern fields and
reached e. depth of over 5.000 feet
with an eight-inch- hole. The well
was siarted seven months ago and is
regarded as record time.
Dry holes figure io a large exient
in the late completions in the West
Virginia fields. At Beet It Bottom, in

In Sardls district, Harrison county,
the Philadelphia company drilled a
test* on the S. K. and R. B. banham
farm into the 50-foot sand and has a
gasser with a capacity of two an onehalf
million cubic feet a day.
Only a couple of the wells In the
Denta run pool are holding up. The
No. 3 on the Z. E. Bateou farm is producing
625 barrets and Heckmun &
nuumana .mj ,t on inB aureu iceudall
farm 290 barrels since it was shot.
The production of all other wells In
the pool Is falling to a lower level.
The high cost of pipe has been felt
for some time and no doubt has caused
some operators to hesitate when
it came to starting new work. Tbo
{nllls now announce another advance
of $2 a ton on all wrought iron pipe
and applies to all sizes an weights,
including line pipe.
PRICE OF COAL REDUCED.
CHARLESTON, W. Va? Nov. 17.?
A reasonable price for coal U expected
in Southern West Virginia this winter.
Reduction from the rates charged
for'the last two months to neighborhood
consumers has already been
made. In some Instances $2 a ton less
than formerly being charged is asked.
The change in the market is due. the
operators say, to the prospect for a
sufficient number pf cars to permit
of heavy shipments from all the mines
rhirh have been (dosed most of the i
ti ennluring the last several months.
