Great Fire Extinguished
Jennings No. 2 Gushes 300 Feet
The Flames Slubdued in just J
Two Minutes after
fight Begins.
The burning oil well exists no
more. The fire was extinguished b
at two o'clock thisafternoon, just 1
six days after lightning set the
Jennings oil field ablaze. Tack
Ennis, an old-time oil fire fighter, °
who has had experience in the s
Beaumont oil field, conducted a
the operations which led to suc- C
cess. The fire was a bigger I
thing than had ever occurred at i
Beaumont, or at any ,other oil t
field known I to any spectators i
who have visited the scene of the I
fire. I
Frank Breeze, representing t
the REDORD, phoned from the t
field this; afternoon that when all E
was ready the order was given,
and seven men with hose played
on the fire, pouringhuge streams
of water into it. The steam
pipes were put to work also, but
it is stated that it is doubtful
about the steam having any ef
feet, as it is thought by some
that the water had succeeded in
extinguishing the fire before the
steam began to work. Seven 125
horse power boilers were used
to drive the water through the
The men who accomplished the
work of suppressing the flames
that seemed determined to de
vour the greatest oil field on
earth deserve something more
substantial than praise for their
heroic efforts. Besides the four
Heywood brothers whi worked
side by side with their men in I
the very jaws of the devouring
flames, were Messrs. Eunis,
P~cc , Like, Whitsitt, Corley,
Nobles, Sharkins,Dobbins,Knott

placed on the casing, and the
well is now practically in good
working order a.,ain.

ItRome, July 21.-The pope re
ceived Taf. and members of his I
party in a farewell audience to
day. The pope was exceedingly
cordial and congratulated Taft
on what he called "the success of
S your labors." The pontiff ex
pressed the hope that negotia
tions may be continued at Mla
nilla with the same friendliness
as in Rome, and resultto the mu
tual satisfaction of the United
States and the vatican. The
mission later visited Rampolla.

Jennings Has the Greatest t
Oil Field on Earth
is the Verdict.
A late message from the field
I by Breeze stated that after the
t new valve had been secured it
was opened, when a stream of 1
oil shot 300 feet high. A few
seconds later, a message from
I another party stated that the well
gushed 150 feet higher than any
r Beaumont gusher. This would
t indicate that the supply of oil in
1 the Jennings field is practically
s inexhaustab, and this fire which
e has consumed thousands of bar
rels daily has cleaned the well so
; that it can now do its best. Jen
e nings has the greatest oil field on

Federation May Aid Miners.
Special to the Record.
San Francisco, July 21. - The
propostion to indorse the miners'
strike and' land financial aid to
the strikers is the most import
ant matter to receive attention
at the meeting of the executivd
council of the American federa
Stion of labor which begain here
today. President Mitchell of
the miners was unable to come
to San Francisco and delegated
Henrey White of the garment
workers to act as hisrepresenta
tive. Mr. White well explain the
origin and nature of the miners'
grevances and review the history
of the strike, emphasizing the
r clai ms of the strikers for aid from
their fellow labor unionand pray
ing that the needed assistance be
not witheld. What action the
council will take is problematical.
In the past the American fed
eration of labor has been ex
tremely diffirent about indorsing
outside strikes, but it is said
that in the present instance a
I number of influential members
are in favor of lending the coal
miners monetary aid. The coun
cil will be in session a week or ten
days. Besides the miners strike
there are sevral other important
matters requiring attention.
The Western Labor Feder
ation has of late displayed such
vi(gorof groth aand wideawake en
terpmse as to cause an uneasy
feeling among the leaders of the
older organization and it is not
imprcbahle that steps will be tken
S lokling t. an attiliat ion of the two
bodies, or if this course fails, toj
squelch the western orgaization.
General Brooke Takes Leave.
Special to the Record.
New York, July 21:- Today
was one of the leave takings at
Governor's Island. Major Gen
eral John R. Brooke who has had
his headquarters there as com
mander of the Department of the
east for the past two years
reached the retiring age today.
He has seen forty-one years of
continuous service in the army,
enough, he says, to satisfy any
man, and he lost no time in pack
l ing up his belongings preparatory
to retiring to private life at his
old home near Philadelphia.
General Brooke is one of the
most popular officers of the army
and it is with genuine regret that
his fellow officers see him ex
change his uniform for theclothes
of civilain.
General Brooke was born in Penn
7 sylvania July 21, 1638. He en
a listed as a private in April, 1861,
a emerging at the close of the war
a with the brevet rank of major
, general. Like General Miles,
5 Brooke made his way without the
f assistance of a West Point train
ing, and like him also he has seen
a long service in the West, having
con manded the departments of
the Platte, Dakota and the Mis
souri. He was made a major gen
e oral in 1897, his commission be
ing antedated about seven years
by that of General Miles. When
the Spanish-American war broke
e out, General Brooke went to
Chickamauga to take command
0 of the first provisionalarmy crops
and was sent to Porto Rico, after
4 ward serving on the peace com
L- mission named by President
e McKinley, and still later as mili
tary governor of the island. In
d December, 1898, he was appointed
t military governor of Cuba and
held that position until succeeded
e by General Wood.
