ANSE LABUTITE WELL.
He'ywood.s' No. 1 Yields Good Re
sult to Developers.
Times-l emocrat. Nov. 3.
News of importance to the many industries
of Louisiana which are looking to the new
oil fields of this State for their fuel supply
was telegraphed from Morgan City to New
Orleans in the form of a message from W.
Scott Ileywood of Hleywood Bros. to Hollis
S. Keavis, representative of the Ileywoods
in this city, announcing possitively that the
Anse l.aButteoil wells are a success.
Following is the message verbatim:
"I baled our No. i at Anse LaButte; found
300 feet of pure oil in the well. Am ship
ping you some by Express. Well No. 2 go
ing fine. No. I is as fine a well as Hey
wood syndicate at Jennings. Call me by
phone to-morrow afternoon."
For more than four months the lieywoods
have been quietly prosecuting development
work on their holdings at Anse Lalutte,
four miles from Lafayette, and about the
same distance from Breaux Bridge. Re
cently the first well was comipleted, but no
thorough test was made of it until Mr. Hey
wood went there Saturday. Ilis telegram
removes donbt as to the presence of oil in
paying quantities, and he expresses the opi
nion-which is that of an expert-that the
well is as good as the lleywoot syndicate
wells at Jennings. This is saying a great
deal for the new field. The Ileywoods have
known the value of the oil deposits at Anse
LalButte for several months, but for good
reasons made no effort to deny a report sent
out a month ago to the effect that their first
well was a failure. \When they started a
secornd well, thus indicating their confidence
in the value of "tihe strike," attention was
again attracted to the Anse L.aHButte field.
