Vol. XX. BAKERSFIEM), CALIFORNIA. TIU'RSDAY. DKCK.MBKK 17. 1!) is. UNION LEASES THE BLODGET PROPERTY That the property F. F. Hill, superintendent of the Union, arranged for the possession of on his recent visit to this city but at that time withheld its identity from the public, is the Sunset. Road Oil Company, the old Jewett-Blodget property, the Calit'or- nlan is now able to authentically announce. H. A. Blodget of the Sunset Hoad Oil Company is in Sau Francisco today, having departed for a sjiort bns- iness trip last night, but before leav- ins he did not deny the reported lease. It is known that the lease has been made, the papers transferred and the operations of the 1'nlon are to be gun before the first of the year. Four car loads of material are now side tracked at Sunset, presumably for the new v.-ork planned. To a California!! representative, Mr. Hill verified the report last week, that Hie Union was soon to enter the Sunset anl Midway fields. Reforo long, Mr. Hill stated, 'his company would bo established on the west side and prepared to conduct operation on a very large scale. As the greater !>'i"t of the product of the Sunse; Hoad' Oil Company is heavy oil, from 10 to 12 gravity, and used for road bulldi'ii.', the natural supposition is the Union intends to engage extensively in ;iv road oil business. Some of the lands included in the lease are in Midway and much of them are still undeveloped. |i j s expected lire ,--o;i'o teniion will at once be directed by THE FIRST IN May Merge Organization Into 32 YEARS a Chamber of Commerce HIGH WATER IN CONSTANTINOPLE.

The Sultan pe.'sonali 1 ' opened parliament. All creeds and races in li.e empire are represented. As far as can be judged the parliament entered upon its duties with the determination to carry out successfully the aims of the recent bloodless revolution. The list of thirty-nine senators up-j her pointed by the Sultan has been pub-i lisheiK It comprises members of the ] cabinet and council, ex-ministers, Interest continues to grow in Hie coming annual meeting of the Board of Trade, and it now appears, since the agitation began for a larger activity on the part of citizens In the work of tills Important body, that the meet- Ing is going to be well attended. Today ii lias been suggested that the Board of Trade, as It has heretofore been known, be merged into a Cham- of Commerce, anil that with the noiv organization, steps be taken at. once lo obtain a guaranteed yearly ii- erals, admirals, the Bulgarian bishop! iiancial support that will of Alouastir, three Armenians, 'bree.

Congratulatory addresses have Ken received by the new parliament from both the British parliament ami the Russian dunia. NEW CENTER JELL PROVES TERRITORY insure the success of the new body. The board, in the past, has been se- 1 rioiisly handicapped for the luck of j finals, and all that has been done bus ; li"jfti accomplished under the most ad- I vt-M-se con,lit ions. Judicious advert is: Ing costs money, and had the board j been properly provided with funds, it j could haviV'overed a wider field ttyan Us limited means would i>!U>w.

The nominating committee recently natni-d by President Peacock has sub- miite:i some names and It Is said thai others arc to be suggested for the consideration of the meeting that is soon to lie called.
