SECOND OIL WELL
GAS AND OIL FOUND AT STONE
SATISFIES OWNERS THEY
HAVE THE, RIGHT SPOT.
DRILL TO BE SENT DOWN 1200 FEET
Looaanad Ddrt and 8tone Wedge In
So That Casing Cannot Be
Driven Down Any
8TONE. Or.. March 3 tSpl.)
There Is more or less trouble at the
oil well here. It seems that the men
who were In charge for a time finally
got a piece of casing faat In the bot
tom of the well and In an effort to
flah It out aucceeded It battering It so
that It la now Impossible to get a hold
on It and pull It out of the well. This
piece of casing la In such a position
that It must be drawn or tbe well
abandoned aa It Is Impossible to get
around It. The question of getting It
out Is about given up, and If that la
the decision of the company then the
workmen will draw all the casing pos
sible and abandon the hole.
But If thla hole Is abandoned It does
not mean that the oil project will be
abandoned. This Is not the Intention
of the prospectors. At this time there
sre two parties bidding on the propo
sition or putting a second well down
to a depth or 1200-feet. If necessary,
and tbe company is taking figures and
will let the contract In a few daya.
The blast put Into tbe well several
weeks ago seems to have loosened
the earth so much that It gathers
about the casing and wedgea Itself
sgalnst It and delays work so, that It
Is Impossible to go further in thla hole
and a new start must be made. The
ownera feel that Inasmuch aa they
have round both gaa and oil at the
present site It Is wise to continue
their work at that point and the con
tract for a new well will stipulate that
tl Is to be put down to a depth of 1200
feet If necessary and that within 60
The members of the company are
still very enthusiastic and aay that
tbe oil and gaa ao secured shows con
clusively that there are both gas and
nil In this location and the only ques
tion Is as to whether or not It is there
In paying quantities. Plana are being
made ao that when the drill la started
a second time the work may be malted
to the oil bearing rock In record time.

never been opened to the river and
there Is doubt if it will be within tbe

that tbe only way was to make a
lease; no action was taken in tbe mat
ter. Ninth street Improvement bids had
been referred to tbe City- Engineer
and the finance committee. Engineer
reported that bid of Harry Jonea was
$38(5 the best on the-race and much
better than that In the aggregate and
on motion or Mr. Andresen Council
agreed to enter Into contract accord
ingly. Contract limit set at October
15 and 20 a day penalty for time run
over that date.
In the Center street matter Engi

ordered. Time limit 90 days and pen

PLAINTIFF WINS CASE
BRADTL VS. SHARKEY
CONTENTION OF ADVERSE POS
SESSION WONT HOLD GOOD
ON LANDS NOT OCCUPIED.
In January. 1887, Chestlna C. Will-
lama conveyed 160 acres or land near
New Era to H. C. Crosa and N. W.
Randall, who later sold it to J. C.
Bradtl, describing it by metes and
bounds. In 1889 Mrs. Williams sold,
the balance or her holdlnga to M. J.
Sharkey and when he received his
deed It called ror 75 1-3 acres, describ
ing it by metes and bounds. The sec
ond deed covered a portion of the
land first sold to Cross and Randall,
the overlap embracing about ten
The sale to Bradtl was made In 1906
and a survey, made at that time) dis
closed the overlap. Sharkey then In
sisted that Bradtl must have more
than hla deed called for and he finally
sgreed that If he had he would re-deed
to Sharkey. A aecond aurvey showed
that Bradtl only had tho amount his
deed called for. : . . .
In 1907 Bradtl sold the timber on a
portion of hla holdings and the land la
dispute waa a part of It. Sharkey at
that erected a fence At the point he
claimed aa hla line and told Bradtl to
keep off. Bradtl'a cutters went shead
however and then this suit wss filed.
Bradtl finally brought suit to quiet
title and save further dispute. At this
point In tho proceedings each in a ban
tering way offered to pay the other a
trifling sum to settle out of court
8harkey tried to prove adverse hoa-
tile poflaeaalon to demonstrate title.
Hut the fact that the land In dispute
was covered with timber and brush,
and that Sharkey could not have pos
session to an extent that would give
him adverse possession, waa the con
tention of Dradtl's attorneya and tbe
finally accepted opinion of the court.
The outcome was that- the court
held with the first deed as given to
Cross and Randall, and Bradtl won his
contention and a clear title.
J. E. Hedges was attorney for plain
tiff. FATHER THREATENS HIM.

WHY NOT BE THE HEAD
HERE IS OREGON CITY'8 OPPOR
TUNITY SO LET EVERYBODY
GET BUSY AT THIS TIME.
The Willamette Valley has been
made Into a district In the fro It grow
ing and fruit packing business of this
Northwest-country. In consequence
there will of necessity be a meeting
of tbe fruit growers in this section
some time soon, for organization and
conference and at thla time we rise
to ask why not In this city?
The Willamette Valley is a large
section of country and embrace a
large part of the population In this
part of the world. Within ltd" bounds
are many people and an opportunity
to raise a very large percentage of the
farm, garden and orchard -products of
the State. Aa Oregon City la a cen
tral point there is every reason why
the people of this city should get busy
and try to get the convention for or
ganlzatlon and then make a desperate
fight to retain tbe center of the stage
In this particular Instance.
This convention wlll.be held soon
in an effort to line up the whole fruit
and produce business of this section
of the State, hence it is none too early
to get busy and get the initial conven
tion here; and that will put ua In
right for future gatherings and may
enable us to step up to the head and
become a leading factor In the raising
and marketing of the products of this
the richest spot in the whole North
west country. . '
A PENNY SAVED IS A PENNY EARNED
