Similarity of This Well to the
Present Oil Field Near the
T wn of Wltanneld.
A special to the New Orleans
Picuyune of January 7, gives the
information that an oil well had
been brought in at a depth of &X0
feet, at Anse-Ia-Butte. in Iberia
parish. On being hailed out the
well furniahed 200 barrels of
heavy dle-sity. It is expected that
this well will develope a capacity
of 2000 barrels a dcay.
This development brings into
prone;neneny the fact that the
formation of the earth at the
Winnf Id oil field is identical with
that at Anse la-Butte. On an
investigation of thie Itc*tion when
the c xperiwmet of boring for oil
was first i,.augurated here. Prof.
ilarri-. the State geohlogist. ex
pressed the optninn that it would
,eever he successful. Since the
discovery at Anse I a Butte he has
reversedi lfirs rait opinion and now
tsay that the experiment here
would prove successful and oil
would he found.
1 Le boring at the Pace Oil well
ha' struck hot black sulphur
water with a strong pressure of
gas. A match touched at the
openinKg causes a lame jet to shoot
up a distance of ten feet. The
surface indications of sulphur and
gas are of the moat eocouraginý
nature, while the boring, as it
.progresses, given strong indica
tions and bright promise of a
development of oil at any tine.
It would not surprise thoee who
are interested in this work, to be
informed at any timune, that tibe
.,..ght-for substance has been
found in paying quantitaes. The
investors in this field are very
sanguine of the eventual discov
ery of a fine oil producer.
