Again Attracting Attention -- Ru
mors of Renewed Activity
Among Oil Prospectors.
It is rumored that oil prospect
r, ihave been negotiating for land
in tl.h Anse la Butte section. It is
rp .rtedl that tracts of land have
i-en leased and that farmers in
that neighborhood have been asked
to give options on their farms. We
have not been able to ascertain
whether or not these runmors are
well founded. It is safe" to say,
however, that before long some one
will be willing to invest his money
to find out if there is any oil at
Anse la Butte.
The investigations which were
conducted last year by Mr. Lucas,
the discoverer of the Beaumont
geyser, established the fact beyond
doubt that there is oil in the neigh
borhood. Owing to the cessation
of the work it was not ascertained
if there is oil in large quantities.
After reaching a depth of about
5oo feet the boring was discontin
