Quiet holds sway in the oil fields. The developments in the several pools in the southwest fields have brought but little disappointment to the operator who is vainly trying to keep even at the present quota tion for crude. Things are shaping themselves for a higher market which must surely come. The outlook at present is indeed 1 gloomy. No new pools are in [sight and the limits of defined terri tory are being crowded dangerous ly near the "deadline." The de pression is being felt in every branch of business, and trade is be coming exceedingly dull. The op eratori, hoping for a higher price for their product are holding on to their credit balances. This keeps many dollars out of circulation. It is safe to predict that little will be done until better prices prevail. The Jug pool has but two wells drilling. The Hickman Oil company ex pect to complete their No. 2 Hick man heirs next week. The Victor Oil company is near ing the sand at their Xo. 3 Smith. Advices from Salem, Harrison county is to the efiact that the South Penn Oil company has com oleted their test on the Stone farm ! near that place and have a 25 bar rel well from the Gordon sand. Other locations are being drilled and Salem is experiencing a small boom. At 10 o'clock this morning the market declined from 87 to 862 for Pennsylvania crude. The cut to day did not effect the cheaper oil and only the high grade oil suffer ed a cent. Presumably the Standard needs a few thousand to pay the war rev 1 ? = ?& 55. enne on their checks, etc. Keep your oil, erect your own taukage, store your own oil and tfcere are better days in store for you. From Monday's Daily. Lucky Joe Childers, according to a reliable report, has a fine Cow Run sand producer in the Plum Run field. Reports say the well is good for at least 60 barrels per day. The well is located on the Clark Smith farm and is in advance of de velopments. He sought out sev eral people and urged them to take an interest in the well but their faith was not sufficiently strong and he was compelled to go it single handed. This afternoon several people i :c kicking themselves and looking wise. Mr. Childers is still at the well and sent a telephone message to the city this morning lor tankage at once. He is expected to make an other location before his return. In the Jug pool the Victor Oil company is due today at their No. 3 Armstrong Smith. The South Penn Oil company will complete their No. 3 Meredith tomorrow. The Hickman Oil company is drilling at 1 300 feet-at their No. 2 Hickman heirs. To the west of Elk Fork, Evans & Co. have the rig timber on the ground for their wildcat venture on the Lacy farm, and expect to have the well spudding by the early part of next week. Boyd Bros, and others will com plete their test on the Kakin farm on Gorreli's run this week. The well is a very important one and is being closely watched. The Sun Oil company's test on the Chapman larm one half mile southwest of developments on the Hill farm will be completed today. This well is also very important and will open up or condemn a large scope of territory. In the deep sand territory the Kanawha Oil company is starting their Nos. 17, 24, 25, 26 and 27 Mills tract. Th'^ same company have their No. 2 Lantz down 1800 feet while their No. 3 on the same farm will begin spudding tomorrow. E. H. Jennings & Bros, are bnild I ing a rig on the Rufus Long farm Center district. This same company is drilling at 1800 feet at their test on the Craw ford heirs tract comprising 250c* acres in Green district. T. N. Barnsdall is moving t rig on the Englebert farm Rich wood run. J The Carnegie Gas company ? [starting a well at Adrian, Proctoj district. From Tuesday's DaMv. There was absolutely no new de velopments in the field yesterday, The wells which were due at var ious points failed to reach the san and the talent is still guessing as t( their probable outcome. The Victor Oil company ex pected to complete their No. 3 A Smith at the Jug yesterday butj failed to make connections and uj. to noon today were still drilling. In that same locality the South Penn Oil company will today ccm plete their No. 4 Mer?dith. The Sun Oil company is still drilling at their Chapman south 1 west of Klk Fork. It may get thd sand by late this evening but such I is hardly expected. There is a slight improvemen | through the fields notwithstanding the low price of oil. The operato I has grown tired of idleness and starting a small amount of wor where he is reasonably sure of sue cess. The shallow sand territor is being operated more extensive at the present time as the expend o! drilling is a great deal lighter. A fieldman employed by t! Victor Oil company came in froi i Plum Run field yesterday and re ported Childers' well on the Smitl | farm as being good for 75 barrel; !p;-r day. 1 It has been some time since any thing satisfactory has resulted from drilling iu that locality, and this strike will no doubt stimulate op erations. T. J. Moran, the well known tank builder, left yesterday for that point to erect proper tankage for the Smith well. Back of Friendly, Holden & Barnsdall's well on the Martin farm continues to hold up satis factorily, and they, it is understood, are arranging for a second well which will be started at once. They contend that McCormick's test on the Martin farm was loo far north and that oil exists Via other directions. PLKASANTS CO., W. VA.
