THE TOLA ^nAlLYgEfilSTEB. SATURDAY, JULY 18 1903 . • III - =5 /T 1^^ TO GET THE NEWS THE DAY it Is to Read The lola PRESSPAPER Inthe STANDII 1 J EMiS IS MAKING AN INSPECTION OF ; . , THE KANSAS OIL •\ • - FIELD. ^ HELD LOOKS eOOD TO HIM What One of the Most Eminent Chemists in the World Thinks of the Prospects in This Line—Has Covered About Half the Field and V^ill See It all Before He Returns Home—Our Future Assured. A reporter for the Register met Mr. S. C. Uicbardson, chief chemist of the Siaiulanl Oil Company, Uayonne, N. J., at Indcpen.ionco yesterday, and among otiicr things learned that hu Iiad been in lula Thursday of tills week and I hat ho was malilng an inspection of llio Kansas oil field In the Interest of his conJi>any. Allhongh Mr. llichard- son is ona of the most eminent cheni isis in tlic countryand holds onoof the most responslhlo positltma In his line in! tho world, ho is traveling unostcn taliously, and Ills presence in the Kan- snis field Is known to a very few people. This is principally due to the policy of the Standard Oil Companv, which does not contemplate exploiting its plans lu the newspapers, but fuVther Mr. Richardson Is a very mjdest and uuassnming gentleman, wlio doesn't court publicity and mucli prefers «loiug things to talking about them. Mr. Richardson is inspecting tlie Kansas field for (he purpose of determining tlie value of (he oil In the various sections from a reflning standpoint, lie has covered about lialf the field, and expects to visit every oil pro<lucing sociion in tho state before lie refurns to Bayonne. In view of. the position which Mr. Richardson fills his opinion of (lie KaJisas oil field -s of more than passing Interest. IL is learned that as a result of his visit to (he oil Ilelds of Kansas the Standard Oil Company will take im- uKMliate slci)s to caro for all tho oil which can bo produced as soon as it «s put on t<^p of tho ground. It is known (hat Mr.| Richardson thinks the state will lie r. iioavy producer,, though the wi 'lla will most iirobably all^l)o small, I ho urt>;i beinr ''f such great ex(en( i,ha( a largo ii luber will bo drille<I. ll«! do (.'S not look for any oil excite niont sucli a.s was exitorieuced at lU'auiuotit. but (ho Kansas field, in his (ipiiiiun will ho one of (he great pro (iucer .H of (he country, the wells ril ready drilled indicating a steady and rolia!d<| llow. His cstimato of the situation would seem to indicate beyond all sjieculation, that the Kansas oil field Is here to stay, au.l that It will have to bo reckoned with in tho fu- (uro oil business of tho country. In a general way the possibilities of the Kansas soil liavo greatly impressed Mr. Richardson, tho natural products Iioing BO varied that many linos are opened for the profitable working of tho shales into brick, cement, etc., and he is of the opinion that the limestone of the state should bo used in many other ways than is now the case. Ho believes that the attention of peo pie outside tlie state has not been duly drawn to this section, but when this is done, capital will come in for manu- faciuring purposes, where it now knows nothing of the opportunities iiore presented. Another ten years will see a wonderful development along industrial lines in this part of the west, he thinks. Dr. -Jofies' P'romotlon. Dr. B. E. Jones, who located here a few years ago and who has held the position of state physician for the .Modern Woodmen, recently received new honors. lie was made a member of the supromo medical directors of the order. Dr. Currcn, of Illinois, and Dr. Smith, of Ohio, are the other two members of the board and they have charge of the medical staff and much of the insurance claim work of the huge fraternal order. The new position will doubtless require the absence of Dr. Jones from lola much of the time, but' the position brings him handsome financial returns and places him in direct line for better places in the insurance world. He has the cordial congratulations of his many friends. STOLE HIS BABY AGAIN. M. F. Carpenter, of Gas,City, Got His Little Daughter and 'Refuses to Return Her. Some time ago the. Register told of the troubles In the Carpenter family of Gas City. The two seperated because he drank and Mrs. Carpenter came to Tola with the children. Carpenter followed and took his baby son away and the mother had a frantic time; recovering It Yesterday afternoon Carpenter -was in town again and arranged with bis wife to take their little girl out to Gas -with him, agreeing to return the child last night. This he failed to do and today Mrs. Carpenter was seeking aid from the officers to compel a restoration of tho child. She expects to bring suit for divorce and among other things will ask for the custody of the children on the ground that tho father is incompetent and unfit to have them In his possession. AFTER ens AGAIN A company Has Been Formed, Which Will Drill Three Wells In an Effort to Strike Prosperity. Garnett will make another attempt to find gas. They will drill three wells at different points around GarnetL. A company has l)cen formed and the Garnett Eagle has the following to say of it: "Tho Anderson County Gas & Oil Company was formally orgSkized and mapped out its i)lan of work Friday night. E. M. Elliott, C. S. Coleman of this city, Rf'prescntativo James ilunfcr, of Greeley, and others aro In (crested in the matter. Tho intention of tho company is to begin ijirork just as soon as stock enough to drill one well, which will bo put down Just southwest of Greeley, is sold. An other well will be drilled on the J.

"In town the damage consisted prin cipally in broken window glass, ruined screens and damage to shingle and tin roofs.

"The storm covered an area of about eight square miles extending about one and ono half miles cast, two and a half miles west and two north, but iittlo damage being done outside of (his area, while within this square crops are almost entirely ruined, fruit ami vegetables pounded to pieces, and trees of all kinds badly damaged or torn out of the ground. A. P. Matson who was farming the sguthast quarter of section 1, as well as his own farm is probably the heaviest loser. Ho finished plowing corn Wednesday and had a good prospect for an average <}rop, but the elements ruled otherwise and in thirty minutes had utterly (iestroyed everything. Not only is his corn crop annihilated, but his meadow and iiaslure are ruined, his orchard Is torn out of the ground and complete ly dcstriycd and nothing but his building: > are left standing."—Elsmore Enterprise.
