Hill's visit was unheralded and unex

Tests of Oil Wells In Valo Dlstrlc
Will Be Made at an Early Date
Drillers in tho Eastern Oregon woll
in tho Valo oil fields have ceased oper
ations, as they are. convinced that they
havo a flow of oil in commercicl quan
titles. One great difficulty in this, as
in all other wells in tho Valo district,
is to control tho flow of water. Tho
well has been eased, and as soon as tho
requlsito pumping outfit can bo in
stalled, it is to be emptied of water,
that tho drillers may bo able to deter
mine the flow of oil.
T. W. Davidson, of Valo, ono of tho
heaviest owners in tho Eastern Oregon
company, has purchased n pumping
plant which will bo used -in drawing
off tho water from tho well.
"On account of the flno flow of oil in
tho Eastern Oregon, wo havo decied to
go no deeper for tlio present," said
Mr. Davidson, "but will Install a
pumping plant anud draw off tho wa
ter. Then wo can measure tho oxact
flow of oil in tho well. That wo havo

Is no doubt, and every Indication points
to a commercial flow in several of tho
deeper wells in that district."
