Story Gold Dredging Co. of Boze
man to release a dredge valued at
312,500 and to recover |5,000, al
leged damages was appealed to the
Supreme court

awarded a verdict for releasing the
dredge but was not given judgment

had been worked and all profitable
land washed through the machine,
and contended it had suffered
35,000 damages, while the dredge
was being held by Wilson.

CREEK DOME
BILLINGS—C. G. Ogden and E.
O. Price are incorporating the P.
and O. Oil company, a no par value
stock arrangement to drill out a
structure on Pass Creek in Big
Horn county, Montana, about two
miles north of the Montana-Wyom
ing line and about 100 miles east
and south of Billings.
Ogden is a veteran oil field op
erator. He was one of the original
stock holders in the Ohio company
many years ago. Later he helped
organize and was made president
of the Eagle Oil company, another
Ohio organization that was later
absorbed by one of the major com
panies Mr Ogden is not only a
practical drilling operator, but is
also noted somewhat extensively
as a geologist He started his oil
career in Ohio and Pennsylvania,
but has drilled producing wells in
Pennsylvania. Ohio, Kentucky, Ok-1
,'ahoma. Kansas and Calfornia
In his youth, he lived in Tiflan,
Ohio, and with all his wandering
operations he still maintains Tiffan
as his home.
Ogden has been in Hardin. Mont.,
the past eleven months working out
the structure and obtaining leases
on his Pass Creek structure. He
has great faith in oil possibilities
and expects to find pay in the
Frontier formation.
E. O. Price is a resident of Bil
lings who has had somewhat of an
active oil play in Montana the past
mny years
No definite details as to Che size
of the corporation and its operating
features were available.
NO ABANDONMENTS
IN WINIFRED FIELD
Charles Bxn|nions, pioneer Mon
tana geologist, calls attention of
the Journal to an error In the re
ported abandonment of wells in
Winifred field. No wells have been
abandoned, he states.
"We have been doing some pros
pecting to determine the extent of
the gas deposits as well as deter
mine structure" he said. "We have
had gas in each one of these wells
and while we have said little about
them, we have in every instance
saved this gas in the shallow sands
so that we can go back at any time
and put them on production/'
Operations are resuming in this
field he says looking forward to a
deep test to the oil sands.
STARTING FOURTH WELL
Resolute Oil company, beaded by
Julius C. Peters of Great Falls, la
starting its fourth well in Badger
Bs«in fields *n northern Wyoming,
having chosen a location that will
be shallower than the other three.
The first was 8,726 ft the second
£,448 feet. The present well is
drilling at 4.800 feet. Road Is be
ing built to the No. 4 location.
THE REASON WHY
Not much has been heard of late
concerning Matanusksa, the govern
ment colonization scheme in Alaska.
Perhaps that is due to the fact
that the total coat of the settlement
,to date is understood to be about
95,00>0,000—more than $25,000 per
family.—Portland Oregonian.
FAILURE AT WHITLASH
Running Into strange formations
which did not conform with any
other well in the field, A.W Pater
son was forced to abandon his Wes
tern Natural Gas-Wallace No. 2

Jash field, at a depth of 2285 feet.

not In commercial quantities and the

be established, indicating faulting.

drilling this well, While Hugo Aron
son. known _in oil circles as the
"Galloping Swede," has the contract
for setting up and equipping of the
standard derrick and drilling rig to
be used In this important test of
the area adjacent to Lewistwwn.
The Flathead-Lewlstown company
owned and financed by Kailapell
capital has something over 1,000
acres under lease in the vicinity of
the drilling site and expect to en

quantities at from 1,200 to 1,500
feet. It is thought the well will be
completed In less than 30 days.

production of that State will be
sustained, however, for many yeans
to come by producing horizons In
present fields which have (heretofore

high gravity crude to supply an ev
