Cor. 19th and 0 Streets Telephone Main 1260 A deal Involving Immense Interests In and near Los Angeles, aa well as the control of the Consolidated Oil Corporation by the Union Oil Company, was completed yesterday And the Union will Immediately take pos* esslon of 740 acres of land in the hertnan section of the Ix>s' Angeles field, on the old WolfsklH rancb near Beverly, says the Times. The negotiations leading up to the consummation of this deal have been In progress for a number of weeks, but have been kept secret, and tho announcement today In the Times will come as a surprise to the oil Interests of L*os Angeles and tho state. The consideration tfald by the Union for the control of the Consoi- Idated Is a secret, but it Is asserted that it was a generous sum. In this same district the Dohem-y Interests recently incorporated with a capital of $10,000,000 on a basis of eighty acres. The consolidated is capitalized at $1,000,000 on a baste of 740 acres, and by acquiring this tract of land, much of it proven territory, the Union becomes the dominating factor In the U>3 Angelas field, At present there la a well JROOfc deep o n tho northerly end, which in oil sand. It will too made a d»'i-p well by the Union, which will immod- lately place two, and possibly more, riga at work in the new territory. 1 Just south are the flowing wells of the Associated, but the control of this territory precludes any further expansion of the Associated Interests in this direction. T. R. Gabel, president of the Consolidated, managed the negotiations for his company nnd will remain as president, and no immediate change In the personnel of the officers of the Consolidated is contemplated. Why Baker Resigned. The Union OH Company's annual meeting will be held on the ihird Thursday in January at Oleum. From a party in touch with the Union's affairs it Is learned that the forthcoming re-port is expected to &how a surplus of $3,500,000 over and above the dividends of 1908. One of the important matters to come up will be the resignation of John Baker. Jr., as general manager, which was presented some time since. It Is likely that this may lead to several changes. From all that can be learned, however, there is not the least significance attached to his retirement. The stories that some one Is circulating about Standard influence are simply "hot air." This is tne view of all well-informed persons. Mr. Baker, it is reported, has enlisted big English capital In the buying, selling and transportation of crude fuel oil in all parts of the world. He Is admitted to be one of the very best-posted men along these lines lu the world today. If not Indeed the best. He has visited the countries of South America and Europe and has had reports of tho Oriental trade. His experience In the shipping by sea of crtuie oil has been quite largo. H«» has patents on the method of loading nnd unloading boats without the use of docks by means of flouting pipes which can be put up at trifling expense and moved when desired and will carry the oil a mile or BO Inland If necessary. Ho was tho one who conceived the pipe Hue across Pan ama, by which the Union is enabled to reach the Atlantic without rail transportation. The reason for his resignation, it Is quite certain, is that he believes he can do better in oil for himself than by working for a salary, however la'rge. While in England Mr. Baker 'stocked himself with a vast fund of information relative to the market all over thf> world and n'so as ta shipping facilities, the cost of charters, import duties In various countries much of which data are obtainable in Komlon, where so many big companies operating in all puns of the world and many ship mvn*>r* have headquarters. carry the finest line of imported goods to be found in tin* Valley.
