Japanese Petroleum Prod action.
United States Consul Lyon trans
mits a clipping from the Kobe
Chronicle of February 28 (an Eng
lish journal published at Hiogo,)
containing a statement ol the loca
tion and output of the oil wells in
Japan, so far as . they have beer
discovered, which seems to refute
the extended claims hitherto made
as to yield and quality of produc
tion. The extract follows:
"From time to time references
are made in the vernacular journals
to the existence of petroleum in
the Province of Echigo, and there
fore consider it will prove interest
ing to many of bur readers if some
account of the extent and value ot
these deposits be given. For the
purposes ot conveniences We may
divide the districts- where- kerosene
is found into four. The first is
situated betweeu five, .and six
rilites ftom the 'town ol " Nagaoia
and in this district there are some
sixty \ wells a,t work, situated oiti
steep hillsides. During 1894 and
1895 the wells were very produc
tive, the outturn being about 30,
000 gallons a^day. Latest jepojtsij
however,. show that the production
is decreasing, and it, does not; ex
ceed 10,090 gallons per day. Pump
ing has to be maintained continual
ly in these wells, which vary from
600 to 1,500 feet in depth; and in
some the flow is so trifling that
pumping can only be carried on
intermittently. This inadequate
flow of oil appears to be a character
istic of most ot the Japanese wells.
Not far from the wells above men
tioned another petroleum yielding
area was discoved about two years
ago. The first wells, sunk to from
400 to 600 feet, gave very good re
turns even before pumps were
fitted; but after a few months the
flow slackened, and, though pump
ing has now been restored to, the
production appears to be rapidly
decreasing. Iu these new wells
the quality is fairly good, and in
some excellent, the analysis show
ing 70 to 75 per cent of illuminat
ing petroleum, while the wells first
mentioned do not average more
than 54 per cent.
But the method of refining the
oil is very effective, the process be
ipg carried on in small private skills,
and the product being thus of un
even quality, it is found necessary
to mix it with from 40 to 50 per
cent, of American oil before it can
be used for illuminating purposes.
A new refinery, however, is in pro
cess of construction at Nagaoka,
with machinery made in Japan, ca
pable of dealing with from 7,500 to
8;ooo gallons of crude oil daily: and
it is asserted that the oil iu this re
finery will be brought up ? to the
American standard. There is also
a refinery, with a capacity of 4,000
gallons daily, at Niigata where a
part of the crude oil is effectively
treated. . '
"The second district from which
oil is obtained is situated at Id/.Ur
mosaki and Amessmachi, fn the
Province of Echigo. The same re
stilts have followed the working of
the wells in this district as in that
first named. When the existence
of petroleum was discovered on the
seashore, a company was floated
and land reclaimed, upon which
some fifty or sixty wells were sunk.
Before ten years had passed, how
ever, the production showed a great
falling off, and not only have many
of the wells been abandoned, but
the new wells sunk have given very
poor returns. It is doubtful if the
^yhole outturn of this district ex
ceeds 5,000 gallons daily. Possibly,
if deeper boring were attempted,
the results would be improved. The
deepest well in this locality is 2,400
leet, and from this the best oil is
obtained, and others varying in
depth from 400 to 1,800 feet. ''In
quality, indeed, there is great diver
sity among these wells, some pro
ducing only 45 per cent, ol illumin
atiug oil, while the best reach a
limit of 75 per cent., the oil being
treated in a good, though small, re
fiuery on the spot. But it seems
that the district is almost worked
out, and the pumping machinery
employed is continually being re
moved to other localities.
"The Japan Petroleum Co. has
control of a district situated from
ten to twelve miles from that first
mentioned, where there is an out
put of not more than 1,500 gallons
per day. . The product is of an in
ferior quality, and there are ex
pectations that this district will
shortly be abandoned as not worth
further development.
* "Some forty miles, again, distant
from the fiFSt district named is to
be found a number of wells where,
though the flaw is superior to all
the others mentioned, the: quality
is exceedingly poor. The outturn
is. about. 25 per cent, of illumiuat
ing oil, and'40 to 50 per cent, of
lubricating oil. The latter is diffi
cult to dlspose-of, as it is sold un
refined and factories with compli
cated machinery use only the
American product, to avoid the
clogging of the wheels tliat results
from employing the Japanese lub
ricant. Even when employed for
lubricating big wheels and rough
machinery, the Japanese oil is
mixed with American before use.
It costs about half the price of the
latter product.
"It has been stated that the total
output of the Echigo fields is from
650,000 to 700,000 cases refined
yearly; but. as already pointed out,
the production is decreasing. About
twelve months ago two American
experts arrived in.. Japan to -pros
pect the oil fields, about, which
there was considerable writing at
the time in the Japanese journals.
They remained in Japan for more
than six months and made a close!
investigation of the yield in the
different oil regions; but eventually
they returned to America,- con
vinced, it is said, that the oil was
not sufficiently plentiful to war
rant being treated with expensive
machinery. ? However this may be,
nothing practical ly* seems to have
cpme of their visit. ^ ^ . ."I
. Presujniag that the yield of the
Kchigo wells . is from 650,000 to
790,000 cases,, this represents only
one-eight part of the. total import
of foreign petroleum* which in
1896 amounted to 5,462,000 -cases;
Thus, taking everything into con
sideration, it does not seem that
there is likely to be much competi
tion between the foreign and the
Japanese product, 80 per cent of
the latter being consumed by Echi
go and the surrounding provinces
alone, while the remainder is placed
at a disadvantage, owing to diffi
culty of transport. At the wells
the price of crude oil varies Irom
2.50 yen ($1.25) per koku (about
50 gallons) to 6.15 yen ($307).
according to quality. The refined
article is sold retail in the districts
of production at from 2 to 2.05 yen
(Si to $1 02) per case; but when it
comes into competition with Amer
ican, Russian and Langkat oil at
Osaka, it is found necessary to sell
the Echigo product at 1.85 to 1 90
yen (92 to 95 cents) per case, not
withstanding that thecost of freight,
insurance and leakage from Niigata,
the port of shipment, 'to Osaka
must reach to 15 yen (17 cents) per
at eacalse St. Unless, therefore,
there are discoveries of oil fields
with a much greater output than
those of Echigo, it would seem that
the foreign product is not likely to
be displaced by the Japanese.
Erom information that has reached
us, it would seem that American,
Langkat and Baku oil have more to
fear from another quarter. We
learn that a French expert has
recently been investigating the oil
fields in Saghalien and has made a
very favorable report,' with the
result that a French company is
being fortned to develop the petro
leum fields gf this, island, which are
said to be of very wide extent." . .

Foraker on Elklns.
That was a spirted and interest
ing colloquy between Senators For
aker, of Ohio, and Ivlkins, of West
Virginia, Thursday^ during which
the Ohio senator addressed one or
two pointed ^observations to the
gentleman from /WestV Virginia.
Senator Foraker was proceeding
with his argument that American
control of the island ot Cuba by
mere intervention would in the end
make this government liable to the
owners of Spanish-Cuban bonds,
while recognition of the existing
Cuban government and the success
of rhe insurgents would- canx with
it no such danger. According to
the republican- Washington - Star,
this is what followed:
Senator Elkins inteiiu^ted^ dsk
what would happ'eti,if domfzfchotild

Mr. Foraker replied that the in
dependence of the Cuban republic
would in tbat.eveut be secured.

Mr. lilkins endeavored again to
interrupt the speaker, but the Ohio
Senator . }mperfous)y swept him
aside with a refusal to be diverted
irOm his line of ar^'u nent.
1 4I ain usually glad to v?*ld to the
distinguished Senator from West
Virginia," said Mr. Foraker furth
er along, "but he would be among
the first who would insist upon pay
ing these Spanish Cuban bonds
rather than have a fight."

How to Cook Fresh Tongue.
Properly roasted or braised in stotk,
a fresh beef or calf's tongue is delicious
meat. It is not remarkable for its nutri
tious qualities; but, like the tenderloin
of beef, the meat is of good flavor if it
is carefully cooked and seasoned, and it
is always of melciug tenderness. Select
a fresh beef tongue for roasting. Wash
and trim it thoroughly and season it
with s^lt and pepper, Wrap a paste
around it jmade pf a pint of flour and1 a

stock in the pan under it to baste it
.with. Boast it, basting it often, until
it is well browned. Take it *up. Add
mushrooms to -the brown gravy iri the
dripping pan, thicken it and serve it
with the tongue. The mushrooms, of
court#, may be omitted, but (hey add a
great deal to the flavor of the tongue.
How to Grill Almonds.
Blanch a cupful of almonds and dry
thoroughly. Boil one cup of granulated
sugar with a quarter of a cup of water
until it "hairs;" then throw in the
blanched almonds. Let them 009k in
this sirup,, stirring them occasionally,
until they become a delicate golden
brown, before the sugar changes. As,
soon as the sugar commences to take 06
a color, quickly take the pan from the
fire and stir the almonds rapidly until
the sirup has turned' back to sugar and
clings irregularly to Che nuts.. J n .
