STONE. Or.. March It (Spl.) The moat successful day's work ever accomplished in connection with the oil well here was done today when the drill was driven Into the earth a depth of 85 feet. The drill la down to a depth of 1030 feet tonight, and the casing haa been sunk to a depth of 975 feet. Last night the report was a depth of 945 feet for tht well and 940 for the casing. By using a pencil for a moment it is easy to see that the two shifts areT crowding t hi tigs. The report Indicates that the drill era hare finally succeeded la' shutting off the water that has been seeping Into the well and making- bad work for oil or gas prospecte. There la no doubt the water has toen entirely shut off. The drill la now in a blue shale. there haring been a change from brown to blue aa to the color of the shale. Thla means a harder forma tion, which Is wanted by the drillers, and the change In the ahale argues well for the success of the enterprise, At the nresent rate it will be but a few days until the required depth of 1S00 feet will be reached.

The article In question advises caution not to say hesitancy in af .fixing the signature that will make It ' official. The franchise has been passed by , Council and what good can come to the people of Oregon City by holding 'tMa tnivlilu Kak mil n.itilnv Ilia r company on nettles for that period of time? If there Is any reason for the hesitancy what Is It? Why does the Courier not point out the reason? If1 there is anything In the franchise that -the Courier editor does not under stand why does he not say so and ask for light? Is the editor of the Courier ' serious In his anxiety to safeguard tbo I . interests of the city and its citizen-: ship, or is be simply playing buncomb In the belief that the people do no. know the difference between buncomb and sincerity? At the meeting of Council, when this franchise was given Its last read- III. PLEASANT BOOHS WHILE PEOPLE SLEEP NICE HOMES GOING UP AND NEW PEOPLE MOVING IN CON-TINUALLY. During the past few months Mount Pleasant, the thriving auburb of Ore gon City, haa been enjoying a building boom, and hundreds of acres of land have changed hands In that locality recently. One of the features most noticeable in these purchases is that the tracts are bought for good sub stantial homes. The cost of the prop erty Insures good homes. Mr. Helns will soon put the Balmer place on the market, this to be divided Into small tracts. Among the attractive homes of Mount Pleasant Is the home of George Yexley, which Is erected on the eight acre tract recently purchased of Miss M. U Holmes. Mr. Yexley has one of the most modern homes In Clackamas county. It Is of two stories, having seven rooms, with a seven foot con crete basement; fine bath, large Colo nial porch and cost upwards of 13500. This borne commands a magnificent view of Mount Hood. A. Bloom has Just completed a seven room, two story residence with com modious porches, and It is built on Colonial lines. This is one of the flu ent homes in this district. -GIRTRUOE ELIOTT COMING Charming Aotresa at Halllo Theatre Six Nights beaming Monday, March 17th Ona of the really notable theatrical renta of the aeason Is anounced ror Monday.
