MENDS Mexican Company Headed by Former Brakeman Has $50,000,uuu Capital. Tampico, Mex., Dec. 10. The Mexican Petroleum company of Delaware has commenced the payment of dividends on its common stock out of the earn ings of its subsidiary Huasteca Petro- Jeura company, operating in the Juan Casiano field, south of this port. The dividend declared is for the quartei ending this month, and is $1 a share on the 298,000 shares outstanding. The Huasteca Petroleum company, all the J stock of which is owned by the Mexi can Petroleum of ..Delaware, is now paying- .dividends of $119,127 monthly, the dividend basis having been reached in October. In the last four years the Mexican Petroleum of Delaware has paid divi dends of more than $3,500,000 on its preferred stock. All dividend amounts are in United States currency. In addi tion to the stock of the Huasteca com pany, it owns over 90 percent of the stock of the Mexican Petroleum com pany of California, which has been op erating at and around Ebano, in the state of San Luis Potosi for the last 10 years. The latter company lias a big refinery at Ebanov and markets as phaltum in Mexico," the )jnited Statea and .Europe. It supplies 6000 barrels of fuel oil daily to the National Railways of Mexico. Edward D. Doheny, of Los Angeles, Cal., formerly a Santa Fe brakeman, is at the head of the oil enterprises. His Mexican Petroleum of Delaware has a capital of $50,000,000, gold. To Extend Pipe Ltne. The Huasteca company's eight inch pipe line, connecting the Juan Casiano field with this port, is to be extended across the Panuco river from its pres ent terminus on the south side to the railroad terminals on the north side. The pipe line has a capacity of 26,000 barrels daily, and the several pumpn j that force the oil through it weign 110 tons each. The cost of each of the pumping stations was $100,000, gold. The largest of the ihree concrete stor- ' age reservoirs recently decided on by J the Doheny interests will be at this port, ana win nave a capacity oi i.uuu, 000 barrels of oil. The other two will be at Juan Casiano and San Gernonomo, the first pump station .north, and the ! capacity of each will be at leastt 300, 000 barrels. Deliveries of oil to the Waters-Pierce refinery here, under the recent contract for 2,500,000 barrels, have been commenced. ' Securing RIbt of "Way. The Doheny interests some time ago secured a federal concession for a pipe line from the Juan Casiano field to Mexico Cits', and the woTk of arranging rightofway has been in progress for some time. If the field continues to de velop it is probable this line will be built, at least as far as some convenient shipping point on the high central ta bleland. Huasteca oil is now being Holidays . i shipped by rail by way of San Luis Po tosi, to the Mexican National Gas com pany, another Doheny enterprise, which recently inaugurated a gas plant in Mexico City.
