Nov. 4.—Although negotiations in avert the "oil war" In | Mexico were in progress last summer, | It appears that ""thing came of them and the "win" bus become a reality, although i 1 h;i* Ilot ^ een spectacular. When the Waters-Pierce Oil Company ha.l a monopoly of the refined oil business of (he republic, the retail price of petroleum was 18% cents a liter, and thai "f Kisollne was 25 cents. Th>' Pearson* got Into the trade last summer and now petroleum is selling at " :l "' 1 s ct ' nts a llter> and gasoline is selllns at 11 and 11% cents. The reductions have been made gradually since the first cuts by each company. The Pearsons started with 20 per rent reduction in the retail price, and the Waters-Pierce concern met the cut hy making the prices 13 and 18 cents respectively for petrole- im and gasoline. The firm of £• Pearson & Sons, Limited, is the same that is Interest- d In the Teha'intepee. National Railway with the Mexican government. In fact, It was the Pearsons who rebuilt he road, making it practicable for leavy traffic, and developed the harbors at each end, thereby giving a ^ relght route from Atlantic to Pacific ports practically as speedy as the ranscontlncntal railways and all by water with the exception of this short railroad line across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. The Pearsons have acquired extensive oil fields and have built a six- million-dollar refinery at Mlnatitlan. In charge of their oil department is T. J. Ryder, formerly Mexican manager for the Waters-Pierce Company. T/n days ago they were said to have seventy-two distributing agencies in the Mexican republic, and were establishing them at the rate of two a day. DRILLING AT POINT ARENA REACHES 560 FEET DOWN.
