EXCITING WON FIRST PLACE AMONG AMERICAN CARS AND SEC, OND PLACE IN INTERNATIONAL LIGHT CAR ROAD RACE After loading 1ho, entire first half of what proved to In* the most exciting and most stubbornly fought speed battle in auto* mobile racing history, the Buick *Model 10's gasoline tank came loose and because, of stops totalling over twenty minutes from tliis trouble ,the Bniek lost tho 196 mile Savanah race by six minutes. Hiiliard iu his $3300 Lancia wonj all credit is due him. Burman in his $1000 Buick gave him the fight of his life and brought his car in with such a lead over the remaining contestants that there was no question concerning tho standard which the Buick has set in low-priced automobile construction. The great duel between the leaders was a sight which the spectators will never forget. NOTES ON THE RACE The Buick used was a regular stock the sake of securing less clearance, the were underhung.

Murray advanced a theory In regard to the existence of oil In Kings county and that portion lying between the Lake Tulare basin and the foothills of the coast range, in conversation with a Hanford Jour nal reporter. He does not take full credit for the theory, but gives partial credit to Expert Irwin, a man well known In oil circles, and which, if true, substantiates the theory of many who now have their "weather eye" on that rogion and expect to see a grout oil field developed there; one which will exceed the richness of the Coalinga fields if their ideas concerning it are true, and if the depth to the "lake, 1 ' as they-call It, is not too great. If this is true mnny Kings county peo will be made rich, for Hanford and Lemoore people have recently made locations on the west side land and operations are actually being prosecuted by such companies as the Lak" View Oil Company and the West End Oil Company, in both of which con- cent's Kings and Fresno county oil men are interested. West of all these operations and to the north, closer to Coailngn, El Cerito Oil Company has a well down considerably past the 2000 feet mark and there is promise, since the water has been shut off, that soon the presence of oil tending in that direction will be known. Should oil be found In pay quantities at El Cerrito well It will reasonable to suppose that others east of there will be brought in and thus the theory may be provjen. The Journal of Hanford reports thai R. H. McCreary of the Cantua Oil Company, which Is drilling for oil in the Cantua district in Fresno county, has returned from the scene of operations and reports that there is promise of striking what he calls the "sand" soon. By the sand he means the 'same that is usually taken as a sum sign of oil. He says that the wel Us down 1250 feet and that he believes they will strike something soon. Mr. McCro:iry has had considerable experience with California oil fields ami knows therefore what he is talking about. Ho really believes that the well will be a strike and that the only objection to the field is thetaoinupupnupmipnupn the field that Is likely to be opened in the Cantaue district will be the Ions; haul of nineteen miles to the railroad. Articles Incorporation of the Carrie Nation Oil Comapny have been filed at Hanford to bore tor oil In Kings county. Five directors have been named to nerve for the first term and they are L. H. Byron of Lemoore, J. A. Whlteside, A. B, Buckner and F. P. McAdam of Kings county and J. H.Freenr of Fresno, The principal place of business will be Lemoore and of the 25,000 shares of a par value*of $1 each, 16,000 have been subscribed. The company proposes to carry on Its development, work in Kings county, south of Huron, on the eKttlemnn plains, and many engage in active operations. It is one of several new companies incorporated to develop oil iu Kings county. Holiday Suggestions ! !

There is much sweet sentiment In Sis Hopkins, that delightful rural comedy dama which comes to the Bnkosnela Opera House this evening, with Misg Hose Melville, the originator of the quaint country girl, playing tho title role. The sentiment Is of the kind which appeals to one's finer feelings, and this with Miss Melville's superb acting and the clean ' comedy of the pla>', has made It the marvelous success which tt is. This is the tenth season that Sis Hopkins has been presented and everywhere Miss Melville Is greeted with crowded houses. The story of the play is not complicated by any social problems. It Is a plain," unvarnished tale of tho simple life of the people of Posey County, Indiana, where Sis was born and brought up. In the action of the piere there conies into the life of this ', home-body girl, an unscrupulous man, who, trading on her affections, en-, deavors to defraud her of a pitifully small bit of meadow land. Discover- , ing his treachery, Sis, whcfee philosophy brightens the play, leaves her home to go into the world to learn at first hand what it really Is like. Clad in the homespun of the farm she departs ;and when she returns It Is as the accomplished, beautifully gowned young woman of the world, who, however, has lost none of her gentility or purity of character. The play abounds In situations which are thrllllnjg In their dramatic Intensity; It brims with delectable comedy and quaint philosophy. There Isn't a false note In It, and Miss Melville's art in the portray, al of the character of Sis gives to the drama a finish which makes it perfect. Miss Melville's manager, .1. K. Stirling, has given the play a scenic pro- cluctlon this season which s exqulsnte- ly artistic. The curtain will rise at 8:15. i .!. F. Michel of Corcoran and O.
