G a' es, of Hillsboro, Oregon, well known to our people as a suc ces-ful promoter of large enterprises, was here Tuesday and cheerfully gave the Signal the first authentic statement ever given out of the lions of the Malheur Oil Co opera This company is a close corporation, with a paid-up capital of $20,000, which the members propose to expend effort to find oil in what is known as Dry Gulch, a short distance from Weiser —perhaps 15 or 20 miles. in an The machinery for the drill weighed sixty tons, and is the largest oui fit north of California. The erection of a derrick 100 feet high is necessary, and some five weeks will be consumed in erecting it and getting the machinery in place. The drilling machine alone cost $0,000, and is built to go down 5,000 feet. It came from Los Angelos. The company will begin with a hole 14 inches in diameter, and is prepared to go to the last inch of the 5,000 feet unless oil is struck sooner. Mr. Gates says that the company lias no stock to sell, but the members have had ex peris make thorough investigations and satisfied themselves that this is the best prospect for oil to he found anywhere. Moreover, Mr. Gates states that if they strike oil there it will be found underlying all the val ley surrounding Weiser, present shipment was made to Hunt ington against the advice of Mr. Gates, though he had not been out to the scene of operations. Since coming here and going out to the grounds he has become satisfied that Weiser must he their headquarters and base ol supplies. He is of the opinion that if oil is struck Weiser will quickly double or treble iu pop ulation, as this section will be the The scene of extensive oil operations. • Twelve men, beside the expert drill men, are at work for the com pany at Dry Gulch. A 40-horse power steam engine will supply power. All these facts are evidence that the company has strong faith that oil ex ists.

Upton, I) D Editor Signal: Allow mo. ns u friend of Mr. Upton, to speak a few wools 1 votedino him read this, and who knew him, may who Some not hâve hoard of his death, and 1 therefore, say that he died at Colorado Springs on November 20. Funeral services were held there, and the burial was at Elyria, Ohio, whore much of his young life was spent. His was a life busy with good* things. He responded to the call of the Apostle lo the Galatians: "So then, as we have opportunity, let us work that which is good toward all will men." It was in this spirit that, after much prayer, and careful ex amination of the situation, he came to I lalio to take the lead in building up an educational institution, and when he came it was to give himself wholly to this work; and, also, to become identified with the commun ity in which he resided, and to aid in the development of the state. In hundreds of eastern communities, the people heard of Idaho, .its re sources and opportunities thro Mr. Upton In this, and in many other ways lie showed his interest in public affairs. In ids character, Mr. Upton was a realization of the meaning of that good old word "Integrity," a whole souled man, complete, rounded out was characterized by a genial nature, gentleness of spirit, combin ed with dignity of manner, thus, a good example to the young people He whom he loved. He embodied truth, true charity illumined his heart, and while he protested against wrong, he never entertained ill will, nor used harsh language toward the doers. It was natural for him to wrong respond to a cull to duty, and he undertook, here, in our midst, two burdens, either of which was enough for any man; the care of the church and of the school. 1 am sure that all who were connected with either of these enterprises would say that he served well. Perhaps it was this double duty that broke down his health it had once before been again as broken, this time not to be restored. Few, perhaps would, under the cir cumstances, have tried to do so much but I am sure we may see that it was the result of true consecration. He The was ready for any sacrifice, key to this action is found in his own statement at a prayer meeting in Boise, atone time, where he'said "1 feel that for me to live is Christ" And now, as we look at his life and works, we may well realize the truth of the other portion of that magnilij etnt verse, that for him. "to die is gain." Mr. Upton believed that education should be of the heart as weli as of as the mind, and he boldly placed the standard, in both departments, high here as he would have done in the more cultured atmosphere of the He had great faith iu the east. young people of Idaho, and that it would not be in vain to call upon them to "attain unto the highest.' And while some have thought the standard severe, who shall say that they were not practically justified? Certainly some lives have been tran formed from the rneau to the sublime through.their efforts to rise to the high places in mental and moral ele 8 vation, toward which Air. Upton's teaching and example pointed. Many of us recall his sermon atthe funeral of the lamented Mrs. Paddock, in describing her as the first martyr to the chnstain education here—and now he has also given himself—cer tainly they have their lives in vain, who knew what they did here, their lives and influence will be Dot given To those i 4 ■jt Annual Shoe Sale : From now until January 1st we will sell shoes at the following prices: 4.50 Shoe for $4.00 4.00 " 3-50 " 3.00 " 2.50 " 2.00 " '•75 1.50 " 1.25 ."

So, also,, in spiritual things his life was the best kind of preaching of righteousness. How naturally it led to thoughts of chris'ain consecration, and while we speak of him as hav ing passed away, yet we know he still lives and will continue to live while time shall last, in the trans formed and elevated lives of many of his pupils and his people, and in tile lasting results of those trans formations.
