( Mr. Mead, of Marquette, Riven his tent! mony in regard to indication) that io troleum exists in the Inko fcuerior re gion, in a letter to the Murquette Journal, as followH : Editor Mining Journal: I soo it men tioned in Homo of tho peninsula pajkth that there are indicationH of coal and petroleum in the Lake 8uiorior region. The editor of tho Ontonagon Miner Miys, after stating that indications of petro leum have recently Ixvn diHCovered in tho slate formation in Unrnga county : "Thin brings to mind that many yearn ago, in our early explorations of tho Porcupine mountain district, wo found wimples o rocks having globules of crude ctroluem in them. The slates in which tho silver veins exist aro known to contain consid erablo oily matter, and tho formation should Ik? more thoroughly examined On the west end of the Porcupines there exists a shale formation in whoso rocks we have seen crevices and hollow spots tilled with oil, the smell and appearanrc leing that of petroleum. Here is a point er for some of tho younger race of ex plorers." Tho above also brings to mind that when tho Ontonagon silver mine was worked, Mr. Crosby, a silver exiert from the west, who was engaged to start tho mill, was puzzled to know whero the prase camo from that prevented the quicksilver from gathering up tho silver;; well knowing from fire tests that tho sil ver was then-. One day he was at the stock pile with one of those interested in tho mine, and tho latter picking up a largo hammer, broke a chunk of vein matter asunder, nnd in one of the pieces was a dark hollow spot. Mr. Crosby im mediately stooied down, rubled his fin ger in the siot and put it to his now, and then to that of tho other party and said, "What does that Hinell like?" Tho answer was, "It smells like crude jH-trol-cum." "And," said Mr. C. "That Is just what It is, now I have found out tho sec ret." 1 1 at onco ordered a quantity of concentrated lye, nnd other ingredient to cut tho o, which had tho desired ef fect. Such Is ing tho facts, there can Is but littlo doubt that jH'troleum exists in that vicinity, whether in paying quali tiesjor not thorough tests alone can deter mine; and wisdom admonishes) that such tests should Is? mado in tho slates there and also near L'Anso, for should in tro leum or coal or either one Is? found iwider some of the slate formations on Lnko HujsTlor to any extent, commerce would soon bo revolutionized in this region.
