is extremely refreshing in these days
when strife and contention are ram
pant. that thers is nothin* of the
kind to be noticed in the oil coun
try. and in fact. It is somethin* that
has never been known in the petro
leum producing fields of the United Stales;
and all despite the fact that the majority
of the territory in the producing fields is
controlled by the greatest trust lr. these
days of trusts—the Standard Oil Co
This trust has the least troubles with It s
employes of any of the great corporations
which employ labor, either common or
skilled. In fact a colony of peop’e who
are In the employ of this great octopus
which has the reputation of grinTng like
the mills of the gods, exceedingly fine,
when an enemy Is caught in the grasp of
any of the many strong tentacles which
are constantly reaching out. a3 many
have found out to their sorrow-will live
in peace and quietness and it will seem
like the much vaunted Utopia in which
each man is hts own master and has but
to will It to receive his own remuneration
and reward.
During the thirty odd years which ihe
great Standard has been doing business
there has never even been so much as the
suspicion of a strike or a lockout. The
whole secret of the success of this com
pany In this respect, and a policy which 3
great many of the concerns now enjoying
the luxury of a strike, in other lines ft
business, might copy Is \hat the men and
women—for there are a few of the femi
nine gender making their living by dail>
toll for this gigantic corporation—is that
they are paid living wages In all branches
of the business and that true worth and
not favoriteism. Is the prime cause of ad
vancement.
This great company emoraces au
branches of the oil business in its work-j
ings from the location of the spot on
which the well is to be drilled to the re
fining of the petroleum after it has been
taken to the refineries through all the
lines of the company, and In all of the
branches the highest wages are always
paid. Some of the men who are now in
the employ of this company as its highest
and most trusted officials, commenced at
the bottom of the ladder and by hard
work, perseverance and close application
to business, have risen *o the highest
point or position a*t.aln|ble. Among
these may be menti{y»ed Dan\0 Day, who
at this time Is a naihber of thtigreat com
mittee of five djA311 City. wRv practic
ally has full cJ^rge of the afTair^of the
corporation, ^mls man when he ewiered
the emplo* of the Standard was a raw
Irishman and commenced at the bottom,
and about the,’first work he did for the
great corporation of which he is now a
facter, was tHb laying of a piece of pipe
line in the earb- days of the petroleum in
dustry in the ^Pennsylvania fields in the
i v.cinlty of Oil City and Tidioute.
j Dan O'Day always was a hustler and
I his worth was soon noticed by those who
j were then in charge and it was but a
short time until he began to receive pro
motions and from being a common labor
er digging ditches at a couple of dollars a
day he has risen to the dignity of a posi
tion of one of the persons who direct the
affairs of the greatest monopoly on the
face of the earth. Another man who has
dorie practically the same thing is John
D. Archbold, who is first Vice President
of the Standard Oil Co. This man when
he entered the employ of this company
did so as a guager—one who Is employed
to go out in tae field and measure how
much oil the producer may have in his
tanks and turn the same into the pipe
lines of the company—and from that he
went steadily forward until he occupies
his present position.
Practically the same thing as has been
mentioned of the two men above might
be said of dozens of others who have
risen to positions of prominence in the em
ploy of this company.
The commonest labor performed for the
company pays $2 a day or at the very
least twenty-five per cent, more than lab
orers get at any other kind of business;
the men employed In laying the pipe on a
line or In connecting up on any of the
lints in the field receive on an average of
about 13 a day; guagers receive 590 a
month and are furnished with a hors©
free; telegraphers get from 590 to 5100 a
month and bookkeepers the same, while (
foremen and superintendents run all the !
way from 51.500 a year to 510,000. It is the i
I same all along the line ot persons em- ,
ployed in the different callings and there |
is not a single instance where the em- j
ployes do not get at the very least, twen
ty-five per cent, more for their labor than
persons of the same ability and in the j
same line of business get when employed i
by any other concern in the world. The
ability of a man working for the Stand
j ard Oil Co. is very rarely questioned for
the simple reason that it is a well known
fact that unless the person employed in
‘any capacity is not capable of doing the
i work properly his lease of life in the tm
I ploy of the company soon terminates.
In speaking again of the promotion of
I men by the great oil trust, of course there
are any amount of men In Its employ who
have the ability to hold better positions
i than they now occupy and yet they have
| not been pushed to the front for the sim
ple reason that all of the higher positions
I are occupied and there is nq room for
| them.
This plan of promoting employes to !
places of responsibility by the evidence (
i displayed of the amount of executive :
i ability possessed, coupled with the fact j
j that each man is treated as a human be- i
ing and a sovereign citizen of the great I
United States, and also that they receive j
first class remuneration for the labor per
formed, is the whole secret of the success |
of this great corporation.
Another of the many things which go
to make it, a pleasure to work for this
concern is the fact that there is not a man
in an executive position with the company
who is nJ a genial, pleasant, whole
souled ge#it m:in. ever ready to do all in
in his p<yer and also to interest the com
pany enlist its support in anything
.benefit to and better the
employes. Men. who.
i position of authority do
not know enough to treat those under
them in a human way are not wanted by
these people. As an instance of how soon
a man who is continually harping at and
causing dissession among the men under .
him is disposed of instances can be cited
in several cases but the following is one
in particular which at one time came un
der the writer’s immediate observation:
For a couple of days a foreman who had
charge of a gang laying a piece of pipe
line had been working his men very hard
in order to get the work done at a certain
time. On the afternoon of the second day
seeing the .work could be completed very
easily in the allotted time, and the weath
er being extremely sultry, he told his inen
to stop work for a few minutes and rest
under a large shade tree.
Just as the men had .gotten comfortably
settled and were resting Milcely the super
intendent of the district came along and
jumped onto the foreman and men. calling
them everything ima^iDaW* Ara~riQ«
L
them to go to work and finish laying the
line. That day the men had only taken
a few mlnutea to eat at noon and they
were entitled to the rest, but despite this
they uttered no protest and went to work
when the infuriated superintendent told
them. The Ipremgn of the gang knowing
he would be called for an explanation of
why the men were found Idle at such a
time on such an Important piece of work,
at once made out a report of the full
proceedings and sent It In to the general
office, where the matter was taken up and
completely Investigated, with the result
that the fresh superintendent was dis
missed and the humane foreman was
placed in his position in less than two
weeks afterwards.
The whole object In writing the article
has been to bring the facts mentioned
above to the attention of those who are
now suffering from the effect of the
strikes which are In vogue in all parts of
the country and to show them where and
how a great. In fact, the greatest corpor
ation in the world, gets away from these
perplexing obstacles in the channel of
business, and to show how nicely the
great trust with its family of more than
half a million bread winners gets along
wtthout the least friction.
CHARLES H. BAKER.
St. Marv’s, W. Va., July 24.—The R.
G. Caldwell well on the B. F. Riggs
farm drilled into the pay sand Thurs
day evening, but are going deeper into
it. There are prospects of a good light
well.
Col. J. F. Thompson, on the Cain
farm one and three-fourths miles from
town is down three hundred feet, and
scheduled for Monday or Tuesday in
the pay sand.
This well appears to be located with
reference to the E. W. Cook field of
shallow wells on French Creek, and
those best acquainted expect it to de
velop an extensive field.
The Permin Oil Company and W. A.
Wharton, on the Wagoner farm, on
Sugar creek, are making fair progress
and will be in the sand some time next
week.
The attention of the oil circles seems
to be centered upon Wirt county and
great interest is manifested in the de
velopment in that county.
The Fisher Oil Company and Mr. J.
M. Ludwig, of Toledo, Ohio, are drill
ing a ■well on a block lying on the Lit
tle Kanawha, adjacent to Creston.
There seem9 to be an impression quite
general that the oil belt of Cornwal
lis and Cairo runs through Ruthford
and passes into Wirt county, between
the old Burning Springs and Straight
creek field.
This well is a matter of interest, as
it affords a good test of correctness of
this theory. Land throughout this
section for three miles on the east and
vrest of the location thereof is all un
der lease.
A well on the Debolt farm by a joint
stock company composed of Sisters
vifte parties on Middle Island Creek,
in fh$ ppper end of Pleasants county,
being regarded with much interest.
This well ^located on the Allen farms
and i9 about one-half mile northwest
; of those. The 'AHlen wells are fairly
good producers, naturally in the Big
1 Injun Sand, and it looks like the
chances are good for the discovery of
a pool of deep oil in this locality.

Mooney, aged 60, fell down the shaft

■iHE NEWS GROWS WORSE.
Friday Night’* Storm About Huntington
Caused Great l.oss.
Special to the Register.
Huntington. W. Va., July 24.—The
storm which passed over this section
last night was more severe than at first
reported, and reports of heavy damage
have been pouring in all afternoon.
As yet no telegraphic communication
can be had with points up the N. & W.
and not a word has been received here
to-day regarding the strike situation
up that line. Many washouts are re
ported and all trains are running late.
Trains on the C. & O. are also greatly
delayed owing" to washouts. Hay and
wheat that was stacked was blown
down, and this will result in heavy
loss. Tobacco crops are almost en
tirely ruined by hailstones, and half
the apples and peaches were threshed
from the trees. 0. B. Willey was
struck by a hailstone, cutting a big
gash in his head, which bled profusely.
The rainfall last pight was two and
one-eighth inches and all streams are
rising rapidly.

TO FEED ALASKANS.
Secretary of Agriculture to Establish an
Experiment Station Up North.
Washington. July 24.—Secretary of
Agriculture Wilson believes that Con
gress at its next session will authorize
the establishment of an agricultural ex
periment station in Alaska. He said
to-day that he had no doubt the people
in some parts of Alaska would be able
to produce their own vegetables and to
some extent the cereals they will need.
The hardy class of animals, he said,
also could be grown there. The cattle
from the mountains of Scotland, he be
lieved. could be raised successfully in
Alaska, but so far as is known now the
mining regions in the vicinity of the
head waters of the Yukon river are
about a thousand miles away from any
part of Alaska in which agriculture
could be successfully pursued.

CONSULAR FEES.
Much Misunderstanding of the Changes
About to be Made.
Washington, July 24.—It is said at
the State Department that considerable
misapprehension exists as to the effect
of the changes made in the consular
regulations so far as they affect the
fees collected by these officers. The
revision will touch both the official and
the unofficial fees, but it is said that
in no case will the fees on invoices in
Great Britain he reimposed, as has
been alleged. The changes have been
made by Mr. Chilton, chief of the con
sular bureau, and are in line with the
reports he had made from time to
time to the department while traveling
in Europe, Mexico, Canada and other
places.

AFTER ILLNESS.
The proper thing is caution and a tonic,
but at the same time we would suggest
some other things, for Instance DISIN
FECTANTS to destroy any disease germs
which may be lurking about the premises
Your walls should be disinfected, and
the best thing for the purpose is
PAGE'S DISINFECTANT.
Contains chemicals which act as ger
micides. Y’our floors should be thoroughly
cleansed with our Page’s Disinfectant.
Your cellar and entire premises should
be renovated. It is easily and cheaply
done.
