The Gas City Oil & Gas Company is now erecting a derrick on its 620 acres of leased land situated in the Thayer Ncodesha oil district and in a few days the drill will start on its journey Into the earth. These lands are lo cated in the neighborhood of the oil wells which the Standard Oil Company has been pumping for about nine years and the Gas City company feels sure it will be a winner. Its officer.'' and directors are showing^elr confl dence by furnishing the money to drill. No effort has been made as yet to sell stock, although a small amount has been disposed of on application of parties. desiring to take a "flyer" In what Is believed to be as safe a proposition as can be found anywhere in the oil fields. Of course the money received for stock goes into the treas ury of the company to be used for development purposes only. Hot air propositions are numerous but the names of the officers and directors of this company are a sufficient guarantee that its business will be conducted In a safe and conservative manner and that all stockholders, no matter how smalt their holdings, will receive absolutely fair treatment. , Fred J. Horton, who knows nearly all there Is to know about oil and gais, is president; Geo. A.'»BowIus, vice president; A. H. Campbell, secretary; F. A. Northrup. treasurer, and In addition to the above, C. E. Hair, E. K. Taylor and C. E. Benton are directors. The prospects of this company arc very bright and the chances are that the stock will more than double In value as soon as the first well Is drilled. .... ' •f otto Risman's Advancement. Mr. C. E. Stebbins, who says he but speaks the sentiments of the several hundred men who have been workin.E; under Mr. Otto RIsman during the past three years that he has been general miaqager of* the Cherokee-Lanyon smelters at Gas City, called at the Register office today and asked to say something about what manner of man Mr. RIsman is. "No finer gentleman ,ever walked in a factory." said Mr. Stebbins, "and he didn't have'ta en emy on the works." As noted' yesterday the men I presented him^ith a handsome gold watch afK -an ^^tcSnntary testimonial of their .^j^iff^ jcegard it is the understanding out there that Mr. Risman goes to the Prime -Weat- era as general maoaser, a position of great reapoiuibiUtr and aecompaiiled by a corrospondinK monetary remuneration. While the Chcrokcc-Liinyon workmen were very sorry to lose him thpy feel gratifcd that others appreciate their general manager as they have done and follow him with their cordial good wishes. And this regard must certainly be a most gratifying po.sscssion which Mr. Ri.sman will never recall without a kindly reciprocal feeling. STONY PQINT.
