From Mines and Oil Fields PIONEER MIDWAY WELL MAY TERMINATE IN A SECOND LAKE VIEW Latest Gusher Assumes Sensational Proportions and Flows 25,000 Barrels Daily The Pioneer Midway, In sectloa 30, North Midway, which was reported exclusively In The Herald Sunday as doing; 13,000 barrels a day, has Increased this amount and Is variously estimated nt from 15,000 to 26,000 barrels a day. A report received from the Held yesterday was that the Pioneer Midway (rusher would probably become a second Lake View. There Is an enormous ni pressure in the well that shoots barrels high Into the air. A continuous column of oil Is now going about 100 foot above the derrick. Sump holes are being provided for the oil and every precaution taken to save the bost part of the production. There Is no Indication that the well will become clogged and bridge Over. To the contrary the gusher Is Increnn- Ing Its flow and may, as some bellevo, terminate in another I>ake View. The Pioneer Midway property corners on that of the United Oil company and the Midway Central and is about one-half mile from the Mays well, which came in several months ago aa a gusher, but which Is now capped. The Pioneer Midway started as a gusher at 6:30 Friday night and the production has gradually Increased ever since. FIGURES KERN LANDS AS WORTH $30,000 AN ACRE J. B. Cottle of the Pyramid Oil company can figure out.to anybody's satisfaction why some Kern county land is worth $30,000 an acre. How it has attained this stupendous value Is based, in the calculation, on the assertion that there is a thirty-acre tract in McKittrick for which an offer of $1.- OOO.dOO was made and declined. There are wells on the property and they are producing 200 barrels of oil a day. About $100,000 had been expended In development work. Deducting this amount, the value, at $900,000, would be $30,000 an acre. Another tract In the Midway field, Mr. Cottle says, could not be bought for $500,000, although this sum was offered for twenty acrea. There are five producing wells, none of them spectacular. About $100,000 had been oxpondf-d In development. This would fix the market value at $20,000 an acre. SUNSET SECURITY RESUMES DRILLING The Sunset Security Oil company has resumed drilling on its well In section 29, 11-24, southeast of old Sunset. It soon developed that the well was filled with .sand for 200 feet from the bottom, leaving a clear hole about 530 feet deep. J. Oliver, the head driller. Is now working to clear the hole, when X will bo ascertained if there is any truth in tho report that It is crooked. If the hole is straight the drilling will continue, and If it Is crooked it may be made Into a water well. At the present time water for drilling Is being taken from the hole, other water supplies in the vicinity being scarce. This method will be continued until it is necessary to cement off the water. Bailing out the water has developed the fact that there is a considerable amount of gas in the well, and this pna pressure is believed to have forced the same up In the casing. Several other companies In the district are active and in a short time the value of land In the territory will be quite fully determined. The Buick Oil company is putting up buildings on Its lease in the North Midway district. A report that the American Oilfields company has struck a new 10,---000 barrel well on section 26, North Midway, is not confirmed. ENGLISH SYNDICATE PAYS $200,000 FOR OIL ACREAGE BAKERSFIEL.D, May 16.—The English syndicate that purchased the Imperial and Thirty-three In San Francisco consummated the purchase of the Sunset Monarch property on the west Bide, purchase price being $200,000. The bonds Issued by the syndicate on the Imperial and Thirty-three were oversubscribed and there is the Kreatest activity In London In paying oil stock. The Seneca Wood turned down an offer of $660,000 for Its Coallnga property In San Francisco Saturday. SPRECKELS OIL PLANT AT MARICOPA IS BURNED BAKERSFIELD, May 16.—The Monarch refinery at Marlcopa, belonging to the Spreckels of San Francisco, caught fire at 11:30 this morning and •was almost completely destroyed. There was a high wind blowing and the flames spread rapidly from building to building. Th-a plant cost a quarter of a million dollar... It has a capacity of 7500 barrels daily and furnishes employment for from fifty to seventy-five men. EXPECTS 400-BARREL WELL BAKERSFIELD, May 16. — The Creme Petroleum, a company composed chiefly of local people, but operating In Coallnga, will be drilling In a week or two. A. W. Mason, the manager of the company, says they expect nothing smaller than 400 barrel wells. The territory around the Creme's lease Is fully proved and the company knows beforehand almost exactly what it can count on. The wells probably will be drilled to 2500 feet or thereabout. STBADX INVESTMENT Industrial Oil Co. i* 50 cents per share, paying 12 per cent per annum. Production 67,000 barrels monthly. For full Information, 706 Story building, Broadway and Sixth. Charles Victor Hall, Peuldent Industrial Oil Co. tx JAMES WYNKOOP Patent Applications Indicate Approach of Arizona Boom PHOENIX, May 16.—This is usually the dull season in the office of United States Surveyor General Ingalls. Nevertheless, that office Is do- Ing more business than ever. The receipts for the last quarter equaled onehalf of the annual receipts for the average year since General Ingalls has "been In office, and yesterday was reoolved the largest application for mining patents that has come Into the office for many years, perhaps since Its very beginning. The application was made by the Arizona and Nevada Copper Mining company for the survey of the Bagdad extension and sixty-one mining claims In the Eureka district of Yavapal county. It Is generally estimated that the larffMt cost of patenting a claim Is about $250, which would bring the total RAILROAD MAY JOIN COALINGA TO COAST Surveyors Seek Best Route Between Northern Oil Field and Monterey Although the work Is being carried on very quietly and an air o* secrecy Is maintained by those engaged in it, the operations of several crew* of surveyors at different points between Coallnga and Monterey plainly indicate that a railroad company Is preparing to build a line between the lower end of the San Joaquln valley and Monterey. According to credible Information it appears that the railroad In question will be operated by electricity and the Western Pacific company, which is now constructing a line from Fresno to Coalinga, wll build It, In addition to the surveying crews which have been at work for some time In the country west of Alcalde, evidently engaged In planning a route through the coast range, near that point, another party of surveyors has started operations near Castrovlllo at a point near the bridge over the Salinas river, over which they appear to be locating a point of passage. The line of the survey they are making goes through a gap between the sandhills to the beach, and It looks ns If it. was Intended for the line to follow the stuye from this point Into Monterey. Persons familiar with the topography of the country between Coallnga and Monterey say that after an outlet through the coast range has been secured, which can be done by an electric road without tunneling the mountains, a practicable route Is available from the lower end of the San Joaquln valley to Monterey by way of Tres Plnos and San Juan. As such a route would link such contors of trade and population as Fresno, Hanford, Coallnga and Holllsti>r, and the prosperous territory surrounding them, directly with Monterey, the commercial benefits that would result to that community from the construction of the road are obvious. « ■ » PIPE FOR ASSOCIATED LINE REACHES FIELD Will Extend from McKittrick to a Pumping Station at Maricopa Plpe for the Associated Oil company's pipe line between CoallHiga and the west side oil fields is being delivered at McKittrick, but none has yet been laid at that end. From Mc- Kittrick the pipe line will be carried down the Midway valley to the Kern Trading & OH company's camp at Marlcopa, where tho initial pumping station will be built according to present expectations. The projected Southern Pacific pipe line over the Tehachapl mountains will also start at the K. T. & O. camp, and the two lines undoubtedly will be a part of the same system. The Associated now has pipe line running from Bakersfleld to Port Costa, one from Coallnga connecting with the former line at Mendota. and another extending from Coalinga to Mon- terey. The Standard OH company is work- Ing on its second pipe line from Kern river to Midway and the tong gang has reached the Galloway ditch from the Kern river end. SHIPS OIL SAMPLES R. P. McLaughltn, the Associated geologist, has sent samples of Coallnga oil to Leland Stanford university at the request of the geological department of that Institution. The samples ■were taken from the Mohawk, St. Paul, Home and National Thirty properties. MAKES 1250 BARRELS The Mohawk No. 1 gusher, Coalinga, continues to flow at the rate of 1250 barrels a day. No. 2 has the water shut off in the fifteen and a half inch screw pipe and No. 3 Is down 600 feet In the same sized pipe. PREPARES FOR ROTARY The Coallnga Eight Oil company, which recently purchased the Carter and Metcalf property on the north line of section 8, 20-15, has a derrick erected for a rotary and has four cottages almost completed.

Silver, 6tc LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 17. 191b. expenditure on this order up to somewhere in the neighborhood of $16,000, these figures, of course, being only approximated. In a rough way, also. It Is estimated that the office work In connoctlon with this order would keep one clerk busy for a year, though, of course, the surveyor general does not expect to be a year In turning out the Job. Application has been made to the department for an increaso of the clerical force, and if business continues to increase when the busy season comes, as it has in other years, 1910 will break all records for the issuing of mining patents. If the activity In mining can be judged at all by the Increase In the demand for patents It may truthfully be said that Arizona Is right now In the midst of a mining boom, whether the fact is appreciated or not. 1 MINING QOOTATIONS ) NEVADA STOCKS Exclusive dispatch to The Herald by L..

BOSTON, May 16.—The market opened fairly strong this morning, but on account of the holiday abroad received no help from London. Amalgamated Copper continued to be well bought, however, most of the session, but toward the close prices ran off sharply. There was very little Interest In the local market and feeling on the metal continues pessimistic. Lack of news from the new Lake district accounts for the scattered selling and commission house business was light. Bid. Ask. Bid. Ask.

JAPANESE WOMAN WORKIKD There Is a much worried Japanese woman on board the British steamer Bessie Dollar, which arrived yesterday from Shanghai, on account of the tardiness of the Immigration officials. She Is Mrs. Ami Nagal, a former servant in the Dollar family, who Is returning to San Francisco from Shanghai. She Is the only woman on board, and until the arrival of the Immigration officers cannot leave the ship to take the train for San Francisco. The other passengers. Dr. Gilbert Reid, a returned missionary, and David J. Brady, a Standard Oil engineer, with their families, being American citizens, left the steamer this morning. The steamer will sail Wednesday for San Francisco with 2200 tons of coke, 1000 tons of pig Iron and 700 oak logs. A part of the coke will bo discharged at the Selby smelter at Port Costa. She has 800 tons of sulphur for Victoria, and will load .lumber at Gray'» Harbor and Tacoma for the return trip. The Bessie Dollar loaded her cargo of pig Iron at the big steel plant of the Hanglang Iron and Steel works at Hankow. This plant Is financed by foreign capital and employs Chinese labor. It Is 6&0 miles up the Yangste river. Robert Dollar, president of the Dollar line, and Herbert E. Law, vice president of the Western Steel Corporation of Seattle, went up the river on the Bessie Dollar and closed a contract with the Chinese corporation for 72,000 tons or Iron and ore a year for three years. The concern will In return buy finished products from the Statue First Officer H. J. Porter says the Chinese concern will soon be Importing steel rails to America made by Chinese labor. As a souvenir he brought three little wooden tally sticks on a string with a copper coin worth a tenth of a cent. Each stick Is given for carrying an iron bar to the vessel. Thousands of Chinese, Including men, women and children, swarm the docks eager for an opportunity to turn a dollar a day in Mexican money. Porter carried three bars himself at Chinese wages to get the souvenir. The Bessie Dollar had a rough voyage across the Pacific. On May 7 the steamer struck a whale, and was given quite a shock.

BOYS START TO CIRCLE WORLD IN 30-FOOT BOAT Two Lads Sail from New York on Hazardous Trip in Home Made Craft NEW YORK, May 16.—Two Brooklyn boys not yet out of their teens have just left New York in a thirty-foot cat boat of their own manufacture on a trip around the world, 35,000 miles in all, according to the plans they have mapped out. The boat ia the auxiliary catboat Julia and Mary and the two boys who will sail in her are Harold and Frank Andrews, twin brothers. They plan to sail unaided around the world, round- Ing Cape Horn and the Cape of Good Hope. A year ago they built the boat and tried it out in a long coastwise cruise to Halifax and to Old Point Comfort. Now they are off to see the world. The Julia and Mary Is 35.8 feet over all, 7.3 foot beam and 4.6 feet deep. Forward there are two airtight compartments, and she is sheathed throughout with copper. She carries a centerboard, a full kit of tools and extra spars and sails. The boys plan to sail south first, cruising along the coast and through the Caribbean sea to the isthmus of Panama. Then they will continue around South America. After reaching Panama they will run for San Francisco, thence to Seattle and Victoria. There they will fit out to cross the Pacific to Japan, then south again, stopping at Singapore, Hongkong* and Minal. Thence to Australia and the east coast of Africa, skirting the shore to Cape Town. They plan to go to Paris and London on their return, thence to Quoenstown and back to New York.
