It has always been known that proper development would reveal the presence of oils and other minerals in great quantity in that section of the country. country. From reliable sources, it is understood that the agreement involves a tract of land extending from the Syrian coast on the north to the Valley of Mojeb on the south and from the town of Eltuba on the east to the River Jordan and the Dead Sea on the West. The company is given a period of five years in which to carry on the preliminary work. Should oil or any other minerals minerals be found, an extension of time wmild be given provided the company pays to the British government 1,000 pounds as a royalty royalty fee] Besides, a straight tax of one shilling is demanded on the each and every ton of oil or other minerals taken from the ground. What such a venture will mean to the life of Palestine is not hard to guess. Closely connected with the search for oil would be the need for generating electricity from the waters of the River Jordan Jordan with which to carry on the work. Railroad lines would also have to be constructed in all directions, in order to facilitate transportation of the mineral products found. With oil, electricity and railroads, Palestine would be bound to receive a great impetus impetus toward industrial progress. The striking feature of the whole affair, is that it points to a departure on the part of the government from its waiting policy as regards new enterprises. The government of Palestine is poor and lacks funds with which to develop the hidden resources of the land. Only bv private initiative and private capital could the country be built up. It is asserted here that thus far the government government which takes its orders from London, has not only failed to lend moral support, but has gone so far as to discourage and even stop new* ventures.
