The governor, the attorney general and state Gas Inspector Les.cli held a loop consultation In the governor's office yesterday afternoon upon the subject of the waste of natural gas. It will be remembered that when oil was first discovered in Madison couty the gas companies and manufacturers became very much alarmed at the waste[of natural gas Incidental to the drilling for oil. Oil drillers permitted the gas to escape In order to get at the oil below and there was a general fear that the wholu field would be blown out in a short time. The gas men formed an agreement to take steps under the law to prevent this waste of gas and under this agreement some of the best attorneys in the state were employed aod an Injunction suit was brought In Madison county. A decision upon thl» case is expected from Judge McClure in a few days, aod after going over the whole ground yesterday the state officers decided to await Judge McClure's decision. Whichever way the case is decided it will be appealed to the supreme court and it was decided yesterday that the attorney general stall appear in the case when it comes before the higher court. The gas inspector has filed infoimatlon In twenty-eight different cases an<? has done all that is possible under tbe law to prevent the waste of gas. Farmers In the region where both oil and gas are found prefer to give oil leases as they are much, more profitable. In these they get a royalty of 25 per cent upon each barrel of petroleum, while the gas leases bring oniy II per acre per year. The oil men maintain that they have as much right to drill for oil as the others nave to drill for gas and contend that the gas men are endeavoring to drive them out of the field in order that they may have a monopoly upon it and drill for oil after the gas Is exhausted. PERU OIL SOTES. What is Going on in Indiana's Best Oil Field. Peru Journal: "Town lot drilling will have to let up soon as the territory on the hill is about filled and fewer wells are coming in daily... Operators are gradually^crawling out northwest. Shirks, who are destined to become the most extensive operators In the field, have 600 acres In that direction and have five rigs up and drilling has been commenoed at three of them The Swank well, three miles and a half south, Is a dead one on the hands of the Acme Co. The sand was found at 1,020 feet below the surface. Thirty feet in the sand showed nothing that resembled oil and the well will be abandoned." A Prond Record. N. K. Freeman, of Winamac, the oldest justice of the peace of northern Indiana, has married up to the present date 2,897 couples, and during this time there have been no iepara- rations or divorces granted. His civil docket shows 8,776 cases, and no cases have ever heen reversed by a higher court. Mr. Freeman, although being 94 years old, challenges any man of his age In the world to a wrestling or jumping match or a race. ADDITIONAL LOCALS. It Safed the Pern Marshal. Peru Chronicle: "The bullet fired by Charles Smith, the desperado, at Marshal O'Brlan, and which would have killed the officer had not some obstruction deflected It, struck a silver star, his insignia of office, in the marshal's pocket and doubled one of the five points. This cut and flattened the ball and caused but a superficial wound in the abdomen, while the concussion was enough to produce nausea." An Important Blcjcle Ruling. The attorney-general of the state has rendered an opinion that is of extreme interest to everybody in Indiana who rides a wheel. In brief, it declares that It is unlawful to ride a bicycle on the sidewalk under any circumstances, no matter whether city ordinances permit it or not. He also says city councils have no right to give authority for riders to use the sidewalks in muddy weather.
