Mel Sabin, proprietor of the Pioneer stables, plans to stay at the resort for about .three weeks. Mr Diiley will also remain for that length of time. Mr. and Mrs. E. E. Kellogg will go along as passengers a-nd expect to spend a few weeks to advantage at the upriver stopping place. OVERFLOWS NOT SEVERE SAYS WOMAN TRAVELER Mrs. Evans Comes from Big Chcim Springs Alone Without Any Trouble. With the 'horse 'that Ed. Stroecker and Tom Staniforth usedi in going to the Big 'Ohena hot springs, Mrs. Evans came down Friday afternoon. She reached here at 3 o'clock in the afternoon afrter making fairly good time' all of t'he way. The overflows, she said, were not at all bad and 1 could be crossed wilt bout much trouble. IVo difficulty was experienced by her in the double-ender while making the trip. Mrs. Evans was ait the springs for seven weeks and declares that she Irked 'her stay there very m u c h . Preparations are being made at Chatanik'a to present a quartz drama w i t h i n the next three weeks. The manuscript of the play is being written n o w , the first rough draft h a v i n g been completed. Ed. Miller is credited w i t h having first conceived the idea and the plot of the play, [n conjunction with Mr. Packard, the rough plot has been shaped into a concrete vigorous drama with strong situations and stirring, h u m a n dialogue. The scenes in the plav are laid in the hilis around Fairbanks, although the time Is a little later than the presem. In it is seen a splendid illustration of underground life as experienced by the quartz miner of the present day. A tale of love, primal, it is true, but nevertheless Northern, is wo-ven throughout the plot. It is believed by those who have had the privilege of perusing the manuscript that the production will rival in interest the old pioneer play entitled "Pat Casey's Xight- hauds," which was produced in Colorado and other western states by the old: veteran showman Langreshe in the early, days.

'A band will be engaged to furnish music and incidentally to give a catchy rythm to the movements of the skaters. Prizes will be given for the most original and most comical characters. The rink is in splendid condition, due to the repeated scraping and flooding of the ice sheet by the manager. Bach evening sees a n u m - ber of impromptu skating parties in progress. SCHOOL STUDENTS WILL PUBLISH ANNUAL Pupils of Fairbanks High School Show Progressive Spirit in Work.

The annual will contain a complete histo.ry of the year's work as well as 'Ifi" comprehensive review of the 83,000,000, BARRELS OF CALIFORNIA OIL I Petroleum Production of California Oil Wells Has Mounted Steadily D u r i n g Recent Years--Gov- \ ernment Report Tells of Development of New Properties and of the Future Possibilities. The petroleum production of Califohnia in 1911 is estimated by David T. Day, of the United States Geological Survey, as reaching a possible 8 3 , 0 0 0 , 0 0 0 barrels. At the close of 1910 oil was being produced in California at an average rate greater than d u r i n g 1909. This increase continued and the total production for the year 1911 was between 80,000,000 and 83,000,000 'barrels, compared with 73,010,550 barrels in 1910. "While the consumption also increased, production continued to exceed the demand, stocks increased to about 4 0 , 0 0 0 , 0 0 0 barrels, and prices receded to 30 cents a barrel where they were not governed by longtime contracts, although higher prices ruled for refining oil's. The increased production was chiefly from the Sunset and MeKittrick region', from the pools already developed in 1910. Three significant discoveries during the year were (1) evidences of a large field in La Habra Valley; (2) the discovery of a deep oil sand in t'he Midway field containing a heavier oil than in the higher zones; and (3) the discovery at the end of the year in the Coalinga field of a zone of light oil 1,500 feet below the main producing beds, in a lower geologic formation. The probability of this last-mentioned discovery had been pointed out ii the reports on the Coalinga district published by the Qnitel States Geological Survey in 1908 and again in 1910. The Lake View gusher collapsed at the end of 1910. In the later part of March the Associated Oil Co. drilled in sec. 13, T. S, R. 10, In TjaHabra Valley, 3 miles from tlie old Fuller-ton field and iui line with the developments in the Coyote Hills. Oil was found at 3,360 feet, and the wells started at '600 barrel's' a day. This caused such activity in the regiofi" and s-uch favorable results that in June the Fullerton field, including the new developments, -was producing about half a 'million barrels monthly. The oil sands seem thick and the wells promise to be 'pereistent producers, The Standard Oil Co. promptly connected the field 'by, pipe Itoes to its tank station at Wortham and by the end of the e a r completed the connection to the new refinery at E! Segundo, the work on which began d u r i n g the year. The refinery was practically completed by the end of December and will begin in the first part of J'anuary with a capacity of 3,000 barrels a day, to be rapidly increased. The Associated Oil Co. drilled a test well in the Elk Hills, San Joaquin Valley, in sec. 30, T. 30, R. 24, and obtained a small production, t h u s obtaining the oil- bearing character of these hills, as had been -predicted by the government geologists. The oil was found at a depth of more than 3,000 feet and proved to be of 28° B., an unusually high gravity. Important discoveries were made by drilling along the border of the San Joaquin Valley to the east and northeast of the McKittrick field, in the Belridge and Lost Hills fields, resulting in considerable extension of the possible productive territory. Interesting developments were also made in the Cat Canyon field. On Novem'ber 25 the Union Oil Co. obtained a 3,600-barrel well of high-gravity oil. Transportation facilities in the California fields were in-creased by the line of the Associated Oil Co. from Canarez station to the Lost Hills. Larger Oil Consumption. While there was the expected accumulation of ttocks it is important to note the considerable increases in consumption, important features of which were contracts with Arizona smelters for 60,000 barrels a month, which were made at the beginning of the year. In October the Canadian Pacific Railway was buyin-g 20,000 barrels a month for use in terminal yards and on the steamers plying to the north. It is said to 'be the plan of this railway eventually to us« oil only for its passenger service as far as Kamloops. B. C. The year proved strenuous for the Independent Producers' Agency, and after many methods for relieving the situation 'had "been suggested the association agreed to a plan for providing 10,000,000 barrels of storage, and at the end of the year contracts for building this storage The IgToo ROADHOUSE BAR Comfort for Man and Beast.

Inasmuch as the consumption has }eem increased beyond what was deemed probable at the beginning of ,he year, it ran not be considered .hat the critical conditions existing n California in 1911 have been entirely w i t h o u t permanent benefit o the trade, which has now reached a' position where the addition of even one or two large steamship companies to the ranks of oil burners, or equivalent consumption in other directions, would make the demand equal the present production. It is not too much to expect that unless a great increase in production takes 'place in 1912 the increase of manufactures and of domestic consumption will reduce the accumulated stocks.
