PART TWO PISS* 9.TO 12 Vol. XX. BAKER8FIELD, CALIFORNIA, WI^X^.SBAY. DECEMBER 23. 1908 No. 123 AGENCY ADOPTS 1T.HRIICLES AB a result of a meeting yesterday afternoon the articles of Incorporation ' prepared for the Southern California Oil Producers' Agency were adopted "signed by a number of those present and will be ' circulated for more names, gays the Los Angeles Times. When tn-enty-flve—the number of directors specified for the start—are ob-, talned, another meeting will be held, i ;he papers filed, a charter obtained ! and further course determined upon, the signing of the articles binding the signers to take only one share of: stock each In the corporation. When ' finally organized, every Individual will be a director and every corporation will have a representative on the board. Those who have signed are city operators except A. F. Gllmore of the Salt Lake field. They represent only a small production, but It starts the movement. Mr .Woolner, at the meeting yesterday, urged strongly that tor even a very few men to pool their out. put and sell It In bulk would help matters. Five thousand barrels a month only would be' better, if handled together, than the same oil sold In tiny driblets of a few hundred barrels each, and when these few were even moderately successful in selling their output at a good figure, others would come in one by one. In the discussion 'his fact was set forth plainly, that at tJakersfleld and Uncle Tom's Cabin is Christmas Night Offering Coallnga alike, It was the small menj who formed the agency, did the work and accomplished everything, the big companies holding back until the very last, some not having conn- In even yet. Had the movement waited on them it Is plain that It wculd never have been successful. Stetson's great spectacular production of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" is booked at the Bakerslield Opera House for Christmas matinee and night. The way this old drama has been mercilessly butchered by the "fly-by-nlght" companies in the past makes one marvel that It has not long ere this lost its power of attracting people to a playhouse, and Indeed it has, except when Stetson's company comes to town. The public has grown to know Stetson's and to know that It alone lifted "Uncle Tom's Cabin" from me- diocrity to mastery. In short, It is the only company presenting this Amerl- i rnn classic with capital enough, with 1 sufficient scenery, people and railroad • nuipment. Stetson Is the only one Klvlng it the needful environment to injure a perfect representation; and, no more enjoyable entertainment will i !)!• seen on the local boards than t Stetson's "Unc-le Tom's Cabin." Over, iwenty-flve people are used in the pro-] ('motion ana with its artistic mingling | of mirth, melody and pathos, all j (hisses of amusement seekers will be Specialties galore, won derful mechanical effects, new costumes and a splendid orchestra will be In evidence.
